International intrigue and war reporting at their very best.

Seymour Hersh reports on a new war plan to overthrow Saddam Hussein

Here's how it will work: The Iraqi National Congress, an anti-Saddam group, will infiltrate Southern Iraq via Iran. Once in Iraq, the INC would create a povisional government, which the US would recognise. The US, in turn, will begin intense bombing of Iraq and simultaneously insert its special forces troops for a ground war.

"If all went as planned, dissent would quickly break out inside the Iraqi military, and Saddam Hussein would be confronted with a dilemma: whether to send his élite forces south to engage the Americans or, for his own protection, keep all his forces nearby to guard against an invasion from the north."
