Who do you trust?

James Caroll takes his lead from an "Iranian official." He recounts his nervousness over Sy Hersh's latest "insider" reporting and the clarity of the Iranian's view:
But who can trust the Bush administration to play games of feint and intimidation without unleashing forces it cannot control, stumbling again into disastrous confrontation?

An Iranian official dismissed the talk of imminent US military action as mere psychological warfare, but then he made a telling observation. Instead of attributing the escalations of threat to strategic impulses, the official labeled them a manifestation of "Americans' anger and despair."

The phrase leapt out of the news report, demanding to be taken seriously.
Not like Ahmadinejad's proposed wiping of Israel off the map, his 40,000 martyrdom voluntiers, and his drive toward nuclear weapons to bring back the 12th Imam. It's our leaders we should fear.
