He Kisses His Mother with That Mouth

From our pal, White House warmonger Richard Perle’s recent testimony to Congress about the Iraq war:

There is reason to believe that we were sucked into an ill-conceived initial attack aimed at Saddam himself by double agents planted by the regime.

(okay, hold it together Jake, don’tscreamdon’tscreamdon’tscream)




He can’t– no


Perle was the head of the Defense Policy Board, a group that advises the Pentagon. He’s a neoconservative hawk, who pushed this war hard. He knows, like we all do, that all of the stuff about Iraq and WMD and democracy was just a big puppetshow to cover up the fact that they wanted to invade Iraq for empire and oil. But he can’t come out and say that, so he comes up with that whopper above.

Jesus, he’s actually trying to argue that Saddam Hussein tricked us into overthrowing him. We got punk’d! This was all one big practical joke, and having his sons killed, losing his immense wealth, losing his power, and losing his freedom were a small price to pay for such chuckles. Oh that Saddam, what a card.

Just wait till the leaders of Iran and Syria start pulling our legs, it’ll be a riot.

  4. On a further review of his statement, I think you misread his intent (not that I would ever dream of defending something that came out of Perle’s mouth…). He claimed that the plot might have been hatched by members of his regime, not Saddam himself. It is not unplausible that certain higher-tier elements of Saddam’s government might decide that their chances would be better under a U.S.-occupied Iraq than under an increasingly desperate homicidal dictator.
