Arnaud de Borchgrave writes in the Washington Times of a conversation he had with R. James Woolsey, the former CIA director:

In response to my question about how he rated the odds of a bombing campaign against Iran, R. James Woolsey, the former CIA director, hummed an answer for me on the sidewalk as we exited the Metropolitan Club. It was a parody of the Beach Boys hit "Barbara Ann" -- "Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb-Bomb Iran."
This is the mentality we are dealing with. Mr. Woolsey also believes that we have been in World War 4 since 1979, when the Shah's regime was overthrown in Iran.

Meanwhile Tehran insider tells of US black ops:

TEHRAN - A former Iranian ambassador and Islamic Republic insider has provided intriguing details to Asia Times Online about US covert operations inside Iran aimed at destabilizing the country and toppling the regime - or preparing for an American attack.
"The Iranian accusations are true," said Richard Sale, intelligence correspondent for United Press International, referring to charges that the US is using the Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK) organization and other groups to carry out cross-border operations. "But it is being done on such a small scale - a series of pinpricks - it would seem to have no strategic value at all."

If Woolsey "believes that we have been in World War 4 since 1979, when the Shah's regime was overthrown in Iran," then how does explain the Iran-Contra scandal when the Reagan-Bush administration was dealing with Iran to help fund the Contras in Nicaragua? Were Reagan and GHWB trading with the enemy? And although Woolsey may deny it, there is plentiful evidence from investigative journalists like Robert Parry that Bush Sr. was dealing with Iran in 1980 in the runup to the 1980 election to prevent Carter from achieving an "October Surprise" that would have enabled him to win a second term. Bush Sr. is alleged to have helped keep American hostages in Tehran until after the 1980 election.
