When I saw this story I initially dismissed it because I had a major case of dejavu over it. I knew I'd seen this story at least a couple months ago and was curious as to why it was a top headline today. Then it hit me... it wasn't Mullen, but President Bush who made basically the exact same claim in April that Mullen is making today. (See the ATS thread from April I've linked to here)

I really, really hate it when the government I so vocally defend makes it so damned easy for the theorists to build an argument. If we end up getting attacked again, blame Pakistan, and then after hitting Pakistan jump into Iran I'm gonna have a real hard time defending that move because it will painfully mirror the theorized M.O. surrounding Afghanistan to Iraq.
