you just gotta love a good, credible conspiracy story ...

Project for the New American Century is set up "to investigate,
analyze, and expose the Project for the New American Century, and its
plan for a 'unipolar' world." 

Such gems as

    "DONALD Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, and his deputy Paul
    Wolfowitz wrote to President Bill Clinton in 1998 urging war
    against Iraq and the removal of Saddam Hussein because he is a
    'hazard' to 'a significant portion of the world's supply of oil'.

    "In the letter, Rumsfeld also calls for America to go to war
    alone, attacks the United Nations and says the US should not be
    'crippled by a misguided insistence on unanimity in the UN
    Security Council'.

or Ramsey Clark's ...

    "Iraq has been a target of U.S. covert actions since at least
    1958, when a popular revolution led by Abdel Kassem overthrew the
    Iraqi monarchy, which was installed by Britain in 1921. In 1960,
    the new government helped found the Organization of Petroleum
    Exporting Countries, to resist Western oil monopolies.1

    "The CIA plotted Kassem's assassination and U.S. generals in
    Turkey devised a military plan, called "Canonbone," to invade
    northern Iraq and seize its oil fields.2 In 1963, Kassem and
    thousands of supporters were massacred in a CIA-backed coup.
