Because it worked so WELL last time...

"Pentagon Weighs Use of Deception in a Broad Arena"

Never mind that announcing one's intention to lie is probably not going to guarantee long term success. Consider the Pentagon's past. Gee, their last campaign of deception was so bullet proof that Colin Powell's presentation to the UN was only debunked, what, whole hours after it was made? Or did they manage to draw it out for a whole day? It was so long ago, back in the hallowed days of antiquity (Feb 2003) that it's all a blur.

This is a point of hope for the future. Look at Iraq, Afghanistan, any area of US foreign policy under the Bush administration. No matter what they want, which may or may not be evil, they're so bloody incompetent that they'll never get it. It would be funny, except for all the dead.
