    Clinton Aide Wanted Iraq to Shoot Down US Plane
    ... so we'd be justified going to war in '97

    (Newser) – Gen. Hugh Shelton's new memoir contains this odd nugget, notes Justin Elliott at Salon: In 1997, one of Bill Clinton's Cabinet members suggested that Shelton order a US plane to fly low over Baghdad so Saddam would shoot it down and, ta da, give America instant justification for war. "I was so mad I was about to explode," recounts Shelton, thinking about the sacrificial pilot.

    “Why, of course we can,” he responded. "Just as soon as we get your ass qualified to fly it, I will have it flown just as low and slow as you want to go.” The memoir doesn't name the Cabinet member, but Elliott notes that the way the passage is written leaves Madeleine Albright as a distinct possibility.

    Google Operation Northwoods, Dean... false flag operations are the bread and butter of the US military.

    That darn Clinton! How dare he do this? That's Bush's job! (conspiring with Blair to have a fake US plane shot down over Iraq to start the war in the Downing St Memo, letting Osama Bin Laden escape in Tora Bora)
