The Bush administration has dismantled a special committee that was established last year to coordinate aggressive actions against Iran and Syria, according to State Department officials. [...] The group had become the focus for administration critics who feared that it was plotting covert actions that could escalate into a military conflict with Iran or Syria.

The video's description hits "the dangerous policies of the Obama Administration" and promises to keep "policies necessary to protect the nation" in the spotlight.
