"A secret blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure regime change even before he took power in January 2001… It has been called a secret blueprint for US global domination. … A small group of people with a plan to remove Saddam Hussein long before George W. Bush was elected president. … And 9/11 provided the opportunity to set it in motion. Not since Mein Kampf has a geopolitical punch been so blatantly telegraphed years ahead of the blow."
Ted Koppel
(1940-) British-American broadcast journalist
Nightline, 5 March 2003, quoting the Glasgow Sunday Herald (Sept. 15, 2002)

    If it was a "secret blueprint" how did Ted Koppel or the Glasgow Sunday Herald find out? Anything to get ratings, right Ted?
     -- DT, 31419     
    Would Mr. Koppel provide you with a copy of this secret blueprint?

    ... its called journalism & involves journalistic research... good job to the Glasgow Sunday Herald

    This same sort of thing has been referred to by many notables including Presidents. I see that many simply reject the underlying truth simply because they don't like the source....pathetic. One simply needs to research and understand what the foundations of the UN's Agenda 21 are to know there is a great evil at work.

    This has the ring of truth to it. Also never forget the secret financial blueprint promulgated by Dick Cheney and bought into by Geo W. that is of course that, "Deficits don't matter."!
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    I'm with J on this one.

    I go cold when anybody compounds the official 911 story. Ted K. says 911 allowed them to act rather than they set 911 up for the purpose. Gatekeeper material.

    too many late nights for Ted...

    This is old news. Plans for 'regime change' in Iraq have been on the books since the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998. Numerous memos have been declassified that reveal the intent to use US military force in Iraq. Of course, Operation Northwoods (see wikipedia) is a well-known plan to use false-flag 'terrorist' acts within the US to justify invading Cuba and other nations. I would say to those knee-jerk responses about anything that hints of 'conspiracy' to maybe do some research. Are there secret plans in the CIA? Of course, there are -- that is something they do. Forget about the word 'conspiracy' -- it is only used to discredit those that have uncovered what the government does not want you to know -- and there is plenty.

    Glad to see that you Archer are not a conspiracy theorist.

    If there is any doubt as to the truth of this statement even if it comes from (not a liberal, but foaming conservative) Ted Koppel, just google Project for the New American Century (PNAC) which right wing war lovers penned before Shrub became President.

    What a load of crap. I notice that the quote is sliced and diced. I am sure that regime change possibilities have been talked about for a long time by various presidents, and military leaders as contingency plans. It is common practice to do this and would be irresponsible not to. This crap is only meant to mislead.

    Read Rules for Radicals if you want a real Mein Kampf of the democratic party. Ted and his ilk are just the propaganda ministers for our little fascist Chicago street thug with a law degree.
