Iraq War Was Planned In 1998 - Four Years Before 9/11

Iraq War Was Planned In 1998 - Four Years Before 9/11:

"DEC 01 - 15, 2003

DEC 01 - 15, 2003



Letter Written In 1998 By Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz Shows That Their Plan To Preemptively Attack Iraq Was Made Before Bush Took Office

by Samuel A. Stanson

DECEMBER 2, 2003 – It was – and is – called Project For A New American Century. This was a group made up of, among others, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz – then not officeholders.

This group sat down and plotted their course of action to dominate the word through use of unilateral preemptive force. On Jan 26, 1998, they sent at letter to then President Clinton which said the following:

“The only acceptable strategy is one that eliminates the possibility that Iraq will be able to use or threaten to use weapons of mass destruction. In the near term, this means a willingness to undertake military action as diplomacy is clearly failing.

In the long term, it means removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from power. That now needs to become the aim of American foreign policy.

We urge you to articulate this aim, and to turn your Administration's attention to implementing a strategy for removing Saddam's regime from power. This will require a full complement of diplomatic, political and military efforts.

Although we are fully aware of the dangers and difficulties in implementing this policy, we believe the dangers of failing to do so are far greater.

We believe the U.S. has the authority under existing UN resolutions to take the necessary steps, including military steps, to protect our vital interests in the Gulf.

In any case, American policy cannot continue to be crippled by a misguided insistence on unanimity in the UN Security Council.”

Sound familiar? Sound like exactly what the President said in the build-up to the pre-emptive attack on Iraq?

Yes, make no mistake, it is absolute fact that the plan the preemptively attack Iraq without UN involvement was created not by President Bush, not in response to 9/11, but by a handful of paranoid warmongers four years before 9/11 ever occurred. Other future Bush appointees, such as Abrams, a criminal whose crimes during his last tenure serving his country required a pardon from the first President Bush, were also a part of the group that drew up this plan.

This group sat around – seething about Clinton being President – back in 1998 wishing they could invade Iraq, go it alone without the UN.

So when you heard the President telling you 9/11 was why we were invading Iraq, that was a provable lie. Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld and their Project for a New American Century envisioned making the next century one of bullying war and preemptive attacks undertaken without UN participation.

They seized on 9/11 to implement their long-held plan. They planned a generation of war – not against Osama and the terrorists who threatened us, but against Iraq going around the UN structure.

Why President Bush and Dick Cheney insulted the world, didn’t even attempt to work with the UN in a useful manner, and went from hunting Osama to launching us into Iraq becomes very clear. The group running their Defense Department, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz, had just been looking for an excuse.

Yes, you had heard the rumors about this. Now you have the facts. You can see the Project For A New American Century for yourself – they are on the web. The full text of the above letter is there, as is another interesting document.

There are two statements about post-war Iraq posted on the site. In the second statement, the group issues the asinine commentary: “Of particular concern, the effort to rebuild Iraq should strengthen, not weaken transatlantic ties. “ It was their plan to flip off even our closest allies, insult them as useless and “irrelevant” (as Cheney referred to Europe all summer long.) Yes, it didn’t take them long to realize we actually needed our allies, that their claim that working with our allies was “misguided” was a disastrous, stupid idea and miscalculation.

Now, we are in Iraq without an actual coalition and with no plan beyond “removing Saddam from power.” Remember, that was their “long term” plan. Nothing beyond removing Saddam.

Which explains exactly where we are now. Saddam got removed. Now what is the plan? Oops, forgot to think about that.

Good to know this mess wasn’t the result of rushed planning in response to 9/11. No, this planless, unilateral, preemptive invasion of Iraq was drawn up over 4 years before it actually occurred. Half a decade, and all they could come up with was telling our allies to screw off as we depose Saddam without a plan for what to do afterwards – on top of lying and pretending 9/11 had anything to do with this to sell it to the nation.

Wow, what an impressive group of thinkers this Project For The New American Century is. And how lucky the rest of our press plays along and pretends this easily obtainable, public information doesn’t actually exist.

How lucky The Moderate Independent now does.

Go to and you can enjoy the people who brought us the Iraq War for yourself.
