In today's New York Times David E. Sanger and Thom Shanker write:
As the Bush administration considers its military options for deposing Saddam Hussein, senior administration and Pentagon officials say they are exploring a new if risky approach: take Baghdad and one or two key command centers and weapons depots first, in hopes of cutting off the country's leadership and causing a quick collapse of the government.Maybe this will happen and maybe it won't. I have to believe the leaks are intentional at this point and every news agency reporting such news should seriously scrutinize their sources. If Bush and friends were to decide on a plan of attack right now and the some news agency ended up reporting the exact plan, how much faith would the public put in the report?
The answer is about none.
