Your dysfunctional government at work. According to the Washington Note, Dick Cheney is mad that Bush appears to be softening on Iran and has cooked up a plan on how to get us into war with that nation.
Meanwhile, neocons are meeting in the Bahamas to discuss how to get the US into an Iranian war. All the speakers are having their expenses paid and each gets a 1000 dollar fee. The forces of darkness have more money than we do, people.
