A Conspiracy Theory We Can Root For 

The resignation of Adm. William Fallon as commander of CentCom and his imminent replacement by surgemeister David Petraeus have removed one large impediment to Dick Cheney's sinister designs on Iran -- but don't pop the champagne, or the bomb-bay doors, just yet. Our indefatigable colleague Scott Horton has caught wind of a rumor so wacky it might be true:
Over at the American Conservative magazine’s blog, Antiwar.com columnist and former CIA officer Philip Giraldi reports that Israeli sources have indicated to him that the recent leak to the FBI about the new-old Israeli spy case came from inside the Israeli government toward the end of thwarting Ehud Olmert, Dick Cheney and the War Party’s plans to expand the Middle Eastern slaughter to Iran – and that there are more spies to be revealed.
