Love them wars

From TPM:
There are two big articles (AP and NYTimes) on the right-wing pressure Freedom's Watch and two big facts that stand out from them.

First, both articles note that Freedom's Watch is made up of Bush-Cheney big-money givers and former staffers at the White House. But the AP makes explicit what the list of personnel makes clear: These aren't people close to "Bush" or "the White House". It's more specific than that: The activists and givers are people close to Dick Cheney.

Second, as the NYT explains, coming off the Petraeus press-rollout, Freedom's Watch's next press campaign is for confrontation (i.e., war) with Iran.

Put the two together, and you understand what's coming.
