Kristol, Lieberman attack Iran
Neocon: Lieberman makes attack on Iran politically easier

David Edwards and Muriel Kane
Published: Monday June 11, 2007

Sunday's Face the Nation, Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) recommended an attack on Iran to get their leaders to "play by the rules." On Monday, Fox News asked Neocon William Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, about Lieberman's remarks.

The neoconservative editor replied that when Lieberman was recently in Iraq, "He was struck by the depth and breadth of Iranian involvement in helping the terrorists attack US soldiers ... and also that Iran is now helping not just their fellow Shia but all kinds of groups, including Sunni al-Qaeda-related groups who are attacking US soldiers."

"Does that mean there is planning on the table or does that make it at least easier for the administration to consider it?" Kristol was asked. "It sure does," he responded, as Fox ran the banner, "Showdown with Iran: Is an attack with the Islamic Republic imminent?"

Kristol then said that an anti-war Democratic congressman had recently called him and said he would support tougher measures against Iran, suggesting the possibility of a bipartisan consensus for military action.

General Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff whose replacement was announced on Friday, raised doubts last February about whether the Iranian government was really involved in arming Iraqi insurgents. Fox News did not report on Pace's remarks at that time.

The following video is from Fox News Live, broadcast on June 11.

How to Sell a War


The war on Iraq won't be remembered for how it was waged so much as for how it was sold. It was a propaganda war, a war of perception management, where loaded phrases, such as "weapons of mass destruction" and "rogue state" were hurled like precision weapons at the target audience: us.

To understand the Iraq war you don't need to consult generals, but the spin doctors and PR flacks who stage-managed the countdown to war from the murky corridors of Washington where politics, corporate spin and psy-ops spooks cohabit.
