Lebanon Follies

Sy Hersh's new article in the New Yorker says that the US was involved in the planning of Israel's attack on Lebanon. The attack would serve as a prelude to an attack on Iran since it would remove the threat of Hezbollah retaliation, and demonstrate the effectiveness of air power in destroying hardened fortifications.
It would be some comfort that the mayhem has helped prevent a larger disaster, but that supposition relies on the quaint idea that the Cheney administration can learn from mistakes. Wishful thinking I fear.
