Daily Kos: Pentagon Palace Coup Against Bush/Cheney

Daily Kos has a diary by Valtin with a fascinating take: "Why are the big media finally now frontpaging the Plame scandal and the machinations of Bush and Cheney in the run-up to the Iraq War? In part, the authority of special prosecutor Fitzgerald, with the Justice Department apparatus behind him, has emboldened them. But I will argue briefly here that it is the Pentagon, or a significant faction within it, that is strenuously pushing this story to wound or bring down Bush.

This is the conclusion I draw from reading Seymour Hersh's must read New Yorker article, 'The Iran Plans: Would President Bush go to war to stop Tehran from getting the bomb?'"
