Bush Authorizes Acts of War Against Iran

Via ThinkProgress (video included), Bush has signed off on a presidential finding
that puts into motion a CIA plan that reportedly includes a coordinated campaign
of propaganda, disinformation and manipulation of Iran’s currency and
international financial transactions.
Will it never end? They're running our government like a criminal enterprise, and for whose benefit?

Makes one wonder whether the Iranian-American "spy" that Iran has detained is a spy after all. All the press reports I've read seem to treat it as a foregone conclusion that the woman in question, Haleh Esfandiari, has been wrongly accused.

But now we have this ABC report which sounds remarkably similar to what Esfandiari is charged with in Iran. And not two weeks, ago, we learned from the Federation of American Scientists (h/t ThinkProgress) that

U.S. intelligence recently undertook a "significant" covert action without
notifying Congress, as required by law, the House Intelligence Committee
disclosed in a new report on the 2008 intelligence authorization bill.

Something stinks.
