PERISCOPE ITEM : In August, the Pentagon operated National Defense University in Washington, held a secret meeting to consider how best to go about disarming Iraq.

FPF/The Netherlands - According to European media reports it is understood
the Bush administration has started deploying mobile labs and new
specialized teams of intelligence officials and disarmament experts, to try
to locate Iraqi's weapons of mass destruction. The problem being that -
according to UN weapons inspection reports - after twenty years of war, and
close to ten years of UN searching with the best US-equipment available, the
arms have nearly all been destroyed. If necessary, the reports claim, all
kinds of arms and documents will be planted, while the top secret action is
justified by referring to "the interest of the Nation".

According to the NYT's article concerning the hunt for those weapons :

"Though the White House officially blessed the outlines of the mission about
eight weeks ago, planning for the hunt began at the Pentagon last July,
officials said.

In August, the Pentagon operated National Defense University in Washington
held a secret meeting to consider how best to go about disarming Iraq. In
September, former inspectors of the old Unscom met with officials from
several Pentagon offices, including the Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to
discuss the lessons learned from the inspectors' eight year effort to disarm
Iraq of unconventional weapons." (end quote NYT)

After months of relatively fruitless international inspections, the
discovery of such arms is 'an absolute must', officials said, 'because how
can we otherwise vindicate the US administration's decision, to go to war to
disarm Iraq, if indeed nothing is 'found' ? The US government can't, and
will not take that risk.

The failure to find WMD's would leave the U.S. administration vulnerable to
the world's charges that it had started a war needlessly, like most of the
world seems to think. So evidence - which can be used in the PR war -
absolutely has to be produced and brought into Iraq unseen. Media reports
have it that the above mentioned teams in covert 'Psyops', will bring INTO
Iraq all kinds of ABC weapons - in mobile labs and closed containers - to
"prove" earlier US-accusations. "Proof c.q. evidence", concerning Iraq's ABC
weapons as named in the american accusations and allegations, will now be
secretly and certainly available.

Highest on the priority list of caches to be produced and found, is evidence
to repair the outrageous blunder with Powell's fake documents* concerning
Iraq's nuclear capability. The as 'non authentic' by the UN Council
described documents, were offered by Secretary of State Colin Powell to
convince all members of the UN-Security Council of Saddam Hussein's
dangerous nuclear plans.

Powell's 'documents' were openly during the UN session described as fake
documents, as confirmed by UN- and IAEA-nuclear specialist and disarmament
inspection leader El Baradei, of the United Nations. The FBI says it
investigates the matter.* It should be expected that small nuclear "devices"
will be smuggled in and "found". Of course in the presence of an Armada of
International Press Agencies and correspondents. Socalled 'CNN - evidence';
and most media will - like mostly without further checking - take care of
the rest of also this Psyop.

Truth has been again and as usual, the first victim in this - according to
earlier existing international law - illegal war.
