Dazzle 'em with Ambiguity!

First the Black and White Good News: "Bush Won't Rule Out Action Against Iran Over Nukes."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush said on Monday he would not rule out military action against Iran if that country was not more forthcoming about its suspected nuclear weapons program.

But, are we engaging (or at least poking and prodding) Iran now?

While the Defense Department has a good time slapping around Seymour Hersh (he is an easy target), does DoD really say we are not engaging Iran in any fashion?

No, but who would really be surprised if we were?

More importantly, who would be upset if we were not seeking as much intelligence as possible on Iran after all their nuclear brinksmanship of the past several months?

I certainly would.

Go W.

Go Special Forces.

And, if need be, Go Israel.
