BBC: Bush Administration had Iraq War Plans Before 9/11

_
BBC - Greg Palast: Secret US plans for Iraq's oil

Excerpt - The Bush administration made plans for war and for Iraq's oil before the 9/11 attacks, sparking a policy battle between neo-cons and Big Oil, BBC's Newsnight has revealed.

Two years ago today - when President George Bush announced US, British and Allied forces would begin to bomb Baghdad - protesters claimed the US had a secret plan for Iraq's oil once Saddam had been conquered.

In fact there were two conflicting plans, setting off a hidden policy war between neo-conservatives at the Pentagon, on one side, versus a combination of "Big Oil" executives and US State Department "pragmatists".

"Big Oil" appears to have won. The latest plan, obtained by Newsnight from the US State Department was, we learned, drafted with the help of American oil industry consultants.

Hard Comment: This may lead to exposing an entity (if existed) fullfilling a wish of Bush to give him a reason to Invade Iraq. Also - Let us not forget Paul O'Neil's Claims that all Bush wanted to know was, 'when does he get a reason to go to war in Iraq'

Is anyone really surpirsed? Great Site Hard. You are better then msnbc and others. The for profit news CNN,ABC,CBS and NBC are a joke.I Would rather get my News from sites like yours and others then this corporate crap that they are trying to regulate the american public with. The Bush Administration has been on the Neocon agenda ever since they stole 2000. Wake up America it's getting late!

Ozy, its collusion of a criminal act.

Covering up for a President who is driving the United States of America on the Brink of Busting out from within.

I've had it with the major media outlets, for them to NOT COVER THIS, and other stories from Greg Palast, is a CRIMINAL ACT.

THEY GAVE SCHWARZENEGGER A PASS, and CONTINUE to give Bush a pass.

I feel bad for this 9 yr old girl who has been kidnapped down in Florida, but the same amount of coverage if not more should be put towards BUSH CHOKING ON HIS WORDS AS HE IS ASKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE ARE SENDING PEOPLE INTO TORTURE CHAMBERS.

Those left supporting Bush at this point are Unpatriotic in my opinion.

Hey ozy you've and Hard Attack News are both right. What everyone seems to miss about big oil and this administration is that they are not going to stop until they HAVE IT ALL.

Greg Palast is a shill that is helping them achieve this goal by reporting all this stuff after the fact and he only goes after the sensational revelations that conform to his political agenda of lining his wallet with the dim wit left.

There is only one political party in this America it is called corporate greed. They are going the to squeeze America and every county until they cave in to every demand.

This is just the beginning of a one world government by the corporations, for the corporation.

You guys really do need to wake up and smell the roses because it’s worse than even you can believe possible since even Hard Attack News won’t covert the story of The Kingdom of Infinia' which is on the Internet for everyone to check out at http://www.toxicreality.com.

What was supposed to happen after 9/11 was a domestic crisis of unprecedented proportion. That domestic crisis was to tell the world that “Opp’s, America committed judicial suicide” and due to this Constitutional Crisis they would declare martial law until such time that a new Constitution could be enacted.

Sounds crazy right. Look at the headlines on this news site for the last 2 years. So who is more crazy? America government is insane right at the moment. Break the silence guys and really give America what it deserves right now.

TRUTH AND JUSTICE.

'They can't train you for the reality of Iraq. You can't have a mass grave with dogs eating the people in it'


At the same time that Kevin Benderman's unit was called up for a second tour in Iraq with the Third Infantry Division, two soldiers tried to kill themselves and another had a relative shoot him in the leg. Seventeen went awol or ran off to Canada, and Sergeant Benderman, whose family has sent a son to every war since the American revolution, defied his genes and nine years of military training and followed his conscience.
As the division packed its gear to leave Fort Stewart, Sgt Benderman applied for a discharge as a conscientious objector - an act seen as a betrayal by many in a military unit considered the heart of the US army, the "Walking Pride of Uncle Sam".
