February 2003: US Secretary of State Colin Powell explains how US intelligence knows everything about Iraq
What I like most about this Obama Administration propaganda effort --- put out through recurrent spokesman Joby Warrick of The Washington Post --- is that it covers so many different audiences.
Are you a lily-livered lefty who thinks we are making up "intelligence" to bash the Islamic Republic? No way.
Are you a hawk-hearted Congressman who wants an immediate airstrike to stop Iran's Almost-Here Bomb? Not so fast, sir.
Are you the Supreme Leader, thinking you can stall on nuclear talks and get away with deviousness even if they take place? You best think again.
(And stop gloating about how you took down one of our drone aircraft last year. See that reference to the "RQ-170 Sentinel" in the first paragraph? Gloat on that.)
Do you worry that the US Government just doesn't know what it is doing in this political dance over Tehran? Don't. We do.
