I thought they had something up their sleeve...
Who else has noted all the ramping up of wartime rhetoric lately? Seems like they've linked every anti-American policy or anti-Israeli viewpoint or struggle in the middle east to Tehran, now all that needs to happen is some event that causes a loss of american lives. 63 monkeys could get together and bomb an airport or something, and they'd still blame it on Tehran.

On August 1st, 2005 the American Conservative reported that Cheney had tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States. The plan involved a massive air strike on Iran which included the use of nuclear weapons.
The publication reported that, "The response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States," meaning that any such attack will immediately be blamed on Iran and any evidence to the contrary will be buried.
