When Dick leaks (sorry for the visual), misinformation floods out. Leak, Dick, leak. Leak, leak, leak!
Allegations that a Syrian envoy admitted during a United Nations meeting Oct. 17 that an Israeli air strike hit a nuclear facility in September are inaccurate and have raised the ire of some in the US intelligence community, who see the Vice President's hand as allegedly being behind the disinformation.
See Intel get mad. Run, Dick, run!
A United Nations press release discussing the General Assembly's Disarmament Committee meeting mistranslated comments ascribed to an unnamed Syrian diplomat as saying that Israel had on various occasions "taken action against nuclear facilities, including the 6 July attack in Syria."
Uh-oh! There was no mention of "nuclear" at all! But the news media kept saying there was, even though it was "something that the Syrian government has denied, the Israeli government has not officially confirmed and US intelligence does not show."
Run faster, Dick! Go, go, go!
An article today quotes former Administration hawk and onetime Bush United Nations Ambassador John Bolton, who links Syria's alleged action with Iran.
See the "I word". See it over and over. Iran, Iran, Iran.
