“In November 1993, [Iraqi National Congress (INC) leader Ahmed] Chalabi approached the Clinton administration with a plan for regime change in Iraq. According to Colonel Patrick Lang, a former intelligence officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), End Game, as it was called, was meant to start with a revolt by Kurdish and Shi’ite insurgents that would supposedly trigger an insurrection by military commanders who would replace Saddam with a regime that was friendly to both the United States and Israel. Initially, Washington approved. But Saddam learned about the operation before it took place. Chalabi proceeded anyway, and the military insurrection he had predicted never occurred. Instead, the Iraqi army fought the rebels and more than a hundred INC combatants were killed.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
