Headlines for the Oblivious

I'm not entirely clear on the concept, but I believe the headline on this story would elicit a "With Cheese!" from Juan Gato. The headline: "U.S. Plans Massive Attack on Iraq - Report." Sometimes I see these stories and I have to wonder why they even move.

The text goes on to describe a CBS report about war plans (for March) involving hundreds of cruise missiles fired in 2 days, for the purpose of amazing and terrifying the Iraqi regime. They cite Pentagon sources. Does anyone think for a minute that anyone at DoD who actually knows anything about the war plans is telling CBS? Whose sanity check does that pass? As I say, I wonder why some stories even move.
