I have posted about Ion Mihai Pacepa before (here). Now his new book "Programmed to Kill: Lee Harvey Oswald, the Soviet KGB, and the Kennedy Assassination" is schedule for release in November. As the highest-ranking intelligence official ever to have defected from the Soviet bloc his opinions are certainly of interest although his hypothesis that the KGB was behind the JFK assassination is ludicrous.
Now Mr. Pacepa has an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal titled Propaganda Redux , a perhaps unintentionally revealing title. For the piece is propaganda but Mr. Pacepa is obviously now serving different masters. The subtitle to the piece basically says it all:

Take it from this old KGB hand: The left is abetting America's enemies with its intemperate attacks on President Bush.
He goes on to say:

Now we are again at war. It is not the president's war. It is America's war, authorized by 296 House members and 76 senators. I do not intend to join the armchair experts on the Iraq war. I do not know how we should handle this war, and they don't know either. But I do know that if America's political leaders, Democrat and Republican, join together as they did during World War II, America will win. Otherwise, terrorism will win. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi predicted just before being killed: "We fight today in Iraq, tomorrow in the land of the Holy Places, and after there in the West."
Sorry, Mr. Pacepa: I am not buying your KGB assassination theories and I am not buying the nonsense in your "opinion piece" either.
