Dick Cheney starts it off with a call to a longtime Halliburton employee, Joe, who has recently resigned. He's working as a "consultant" in the Middle East, say, Dubai or Kuwait. The call sets off a trip to Iran where Joe uses his construction contacts to make a connection with a captain in the Iranian Navy.

Joe has been authorized to offer up to $20 million to cut a deal to have a group of small Iranian Navy gunboats do a dance with a US Naval vessel. The money comes out of a cash budget that's part of the Iraq "surge" project. Most of that money is going to local Sunni leaders to pay for "construction projects and security."

Joe cuts a deal with Captain Yusuf for $10 million. Captain Yusuf offers a million to each of the captains of the five vessels in the fleet he's put together. They'll keep half a million for themselves and give another half a million to the upper level crew. Lowest level crew members won't even know what they're getting into.

The plan is to create an incident. Captain Yusuf is informed that the deal is already set up with the US Navy, that he can't say anything, but this project has been approved at the highest levels in the US. He is assured that if he stays 200 metres away. A mile away, there's a civilian fishing boat. It has some unusual radio gear on it. Someone on the fishing boat radios to the US Naval vessel a threat that they will be blown up, pretending the message is coming from one of the gunboats.

Problem is, the Naval vessel's commander is not in the loop. Joe lied to Yusuf. Cheney's plan is to provoke an incident.

Fortunately, the commander exercises restraint. He doesn't want to be the one to start a war. Still, he does train the guns on the boats. As soon as Yusuf sees this, the deal has gone to a place that was never discussed. He takes off.

A crazy scenario? What do you think? Is this beyond the kind of thing we KNOW that the CIA and rogue or fully authorized operatives for past Republican presidents have done?

Discretionary cash war funding that doesn't ahve to be accounted for-- priceless.

This false flag ruse is not a new idea. It has happened again and again. Why don't the corpsestream media mention this and put the incident in context?

This is exactly what I'm talking about, when people say it is too late for impeachment, and I reply-- they could start another war. This incident is one more reason to impeach.


Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
