Subject: RE: BS: The Alternative Facts Thread
I would suggest that when it comes to lists of countries that may pose any sort of threat to the USA, Allies of the USA and countries that are of significant interest (economic, military or political) to the USA, then the Intelligence and Security Agencies of the United States of America have been continually compiling and updating those lists since the end of the Second World War.

After 9/11 those same agencies and the Security Committee of Congress were asked separately and independently to come up with candidate "rogue states" - they did - both lists were identical with Iraq coming top of both lists. Those lists I dare say have been continually updated as the situation is constantly under review and analysis - that after all is their job.
