Ex-CIA Analyst: Iran Summer Strike Ready to Go

Is it possible? Would the Bush Administration stage terrorist attacks in Europe and the US to justify a military push into Iran? Would they use this to drum up patriotic approval, the likes not seen since 9/11? This is the horrific scenario that former CIA analyst and Presidential advisor Ray McGovern is predicting for the near future.

Asked to cite specifically when we should expect to see an attack launched, McGovern said, "I think we all agree that an attack is likely before the election and we all agree that it has to do largely with the election - as for timing I see a likelihood that it could come as early as late June or early July, most of my colleagues predict August, September, maybe an October surprise even."

The Latino Edge has been covering this issue since the New Yorker magazine ran a similar article last April. We later learned that President Bush had refused... to rule out nuclear strikes against Iran if diplomacy fails to curb the Islamic Republic's atomic ambitions.

Get ready, America. We are about to see events we thought were only the stuff of Hollywood movies.

I wouldn't be surprised if the military draft bill was revisted and reinstated.
