Gen. Barry McCaffrey Privately Briefs NBC Execs On War With Iran

Apparently, not only does NBC continue to present McCaffrey to its viewers as some sort of objective analyst, but NBC News executives use him as some kind of private consultant and briefer on the news. On January 12, 2012, McCaffrey presented a seminar to roughly 20 NBC executives and producers -- including NBC News President Steve Capus -- entitled "Iran, Nukes & Oil: The Gulf Confrontation." We've obtained the Power Point presentation McCaffrey prepared and distributed for his presentation, and in it, he all but predicts war with Iran within the next 90 days: one that is likely to be started by them.
