  Are We Planning To Go To War With Iran? Is this administration going after Iran? A story in the next issue of the New Yorker cites that maybe this administration's plan.
WASHINGTON - The U.S. administration is stepping up plans for a possible air strike on Iran, despite publicly pushing for a diplomatic solution to a dispute over its nuclear ambitions, according to a report by influential investigative journalist Seymour Hersh.

Hersh’s story in the April 17 issue of the New Yorker magazine quotes former and current intelligence and defense officials as saying the administration increasingly sees “regime change” in Tehran as the ultimate goal.

“This White House believes that the only way to solve the problem is to change the power structure in Iran, and that means war,” Hersh quotes an unidentified senior Pentagon adviser on the war on terror as saying.

Reuters has the report. Here is the Hersh article.

I hope this is speculative. Jeez, I hope this report is wrong. Incidentally, Hersh won a Pulitzer nearly forty years ago when he reported of the My Lai Massacre.
