Desert Badger

One of the underreported stories which has been floating around was about Operation Desert Badger. It's gotten minimal media attention, but it was in O'Neill's book. A better name for it would have been "Operation Sacrificial Lamb." Or, perhaps, "Operation Kill Our Pilot Please." The idea was to keep goading Saddam into killing our pilots, to give us an excuse to attack. Support our troops!
