Why allow the PLO office to remain open?

I read a fascinating article this morning that could explain what W is up to with this.

This is not on-line but I will give you key quotes.

Strategic Decision To Give Up Baghdad

Carol Rosenberg

Knight Ritter Newspapers

"Iraqi field commanders were surprised April 8..by orders to withdraw (from Baghdad) and return to their bases north of the city...

The commanders withdrew as instructed. Once they reached their bases they were told to go home....

Major Salah Abdullah Mahdi al Jabouri, a 17 year army veteran, described the order as a personal tragedy...I stayed inside my bedroom for five days, in shock."

Maybe this was the "shock" part of the "shock and awe" strategy. ;-)

This looks like _we_ became the command and control over Baghdad military units, presumably first by intercepting their military commnications, then analyzing them and later destroying their command and control and "spoofing" them with our own.

So, back to the PLO. If they communicate we moniior. Then we analyze. Then, at the right time, we would have the opportunity to subvert their operations with false orders.

imho

Through your logic, I will propose to the US that it opens an Al Queda office /sarcasm
