US faking intelligence to justify attack on Iran?

While British PM Tony Blair is saying “no attack on Iran is being planned, and that a diplomatic solution to the West’s row with Tehran over its nuclear plans is the only “viable and sensible” answer”, Dick(head) Cheney is here in Australia saying that a Strike on Iran is an option.

“All options are still on the table,” US vice president Dick Cheney told a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister John Howard in Sydney today.

Interesting given that the Guardian is reporting that:

MUCH of the intelligence on Iran’s nuclear facilities provided to UN inspectors by American spy agencies has turned out to be unfounded, according to diplomatic sources in Vienna.

The claims come as the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, plus Germany, prepare to draft a second sanctions resolution on Iran.

They are reminiscent of the intelligence fiasco surrounding the Iraq war and coincide with a sharp increase in international tension as the International Atomic Energy Agency reported yesterday that Iran was defying a Security Council ultimatum to freeze its nuclear program.

So, anyone for a war? It makes great TV and is good for US oil.
