The OTHER "Memos"

BlondeSense has posted a copy of an email from the BBC's Greg Palast to Chairman Conyers. In it Palast sets out a timeline for the Bush Administrations secret plan to go to war in Iraq for the benefit of corporations and Big Oil.

"February 2001 - Only one month after the first Bush-Cheney inauguration, the State Department's Pam Quanrud organizes a secret confab in California to make plans for the invasion of Iraq and removal of Saddam. US oil industry advisor Falah Aljibury and others are asked to interview would-be replacements for a new US-installed dictator.

On BBC Television's Newsnight, Aljibury himself explained,

'It is an invasion, but it will act like a coup. The original plan was to liberate Iraq from the Saddamists and from the regime.'

March 2001 - Vice-President Dick Cheney meets with oil company executives and reviews oil field maps of Iraq. Cheney refuses to release the names of those attending or their purpose. Harper's has since learned their plan and purpose -- see below."

Read it all and check out Greg Palast's site.
