Scott Horton at Harpers weighs in on Cheney’s speech to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and reaches the same conclusions as Greg Djerejian at the Belgravia Dispatch: That Vice President Cheney is threatening war with Iran.
…note the focus on the Quds unit of the Revolutionary Guard. This is an exercise in target-practicing. As several sources have noted, Cheney has advocated targeting the Quds unit in the first bombing raids. He and his chief of staff David Addington have also advocated putting the Quds unit on the scheduled list of terrorist organizations, presumably for prior Congressional authorizations for the use of military force canbe drawn upon to justify the attack without the need to go back to Congress.
