Provoking Spin

This makes my head spin...

Excerpt from the NY Times regarding a recently released memo from Tony Blair's office:

The memo indicates "that the president and the prime minister acknowledged that no unconventional weapons had been found inside Iraq. Faced with the possibility of not finding any before the planned invasion, Mr. Bush talked about several ways to provoke a confrontation, including a proposal to paint a United States surveillance plane in the colors of the United Nations in hopes of drawing fire, or assassinating Mr. Hussein."

The United States as Rodeo Clown? We're in the attack provoking business, Yee haw.
