(Media Appearance Note: Senior Editor Gordon Duff will appear on The Hour, the flagship Current Affairs Program of IQRA TV. 8.30 – 9.30 pm BST, on Sundays at Channel 826, on Sky.  This program offers a serious analysis of political, social and cultural issues for a mature viewership.)

In a unique interview with an official at the highest policy levels of the Pentagon, White House and, eventually, CIA, we are offered a unique “behind the curtains” look at areas of policy making during the period between 1999 and 2007.  Extensive notes have been taken of meetings with President Bush and all his top policy advisers.  This is only a teaser.

A highly placed source within the White House and CIA confirmed, in an interview, that the invasion of Iran was scheduled for 2006 but planned in 1999.  We have heard some of this before but not with so many pieces and, I am told, more to


come. In an interview with a Bush administration policy official:

Q.  What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of your work at the White House?  You have read my articles, what do you think of my take on things?

A.  You are closer than anyone else in understanding how things worked, the only person willing to simply put it out there.  You also come at things like the Pentagon people I have worked with, the ones who stood against Bush, Cheney and the AIPAC gang at the NSC (National Security Council.)  I can also see that you don’t have background material that you need.  Some of it you have wrong, particularly the motives for Iraq.  It was always Iran, Iraq was simply a door.

“The Iraq invasion was a ‘done deal’ in 1999, but not as you thought to steal oil and bilk billions, that was all gravy.  Iraq, the entire Bush presidency, had one purpose, to remove Iran from the picture.”

Q.  You talk about journalists.  What has your experience been?

A.  I have good friends at the New York Times, Time Magazine, the Washington Post and others.  They know all of this.  They aren’t fooled.  They could write anything but it would never hit print.

Q.  Back to the 2000 election.  The first impediment was, I am told, removing John McCain from the picture.   Was this the case?


A. “He was enemy # 1, stubborn, unpredictable and already tarnished by the Keating 5 scandal, with all his faults, he didn’t have the serous skeletons in his closet that would fit the bill.  McCain couldn’t be blackmailed like Bush, thus McCain is a risk.  Unless you can be controlled, blackmailed or bought or both, you will go nowhere in Washington.

McCain is a womanizer, the real thing.  For a war hero, with McCain’s charm that’s nothing, he would never fall into the kind of trap Clinton did.  Rove was assigned the job of getting rid of McCain.  We all saw what was done in South Carolina.  It was a masterful job.”

Q. When you talk about McCain not being vulnerable, he certainly was in South Carolina, a few rumors and smears and he was gone.  You say Bush is more vulnerable?

A. “A window into a lot of this can be found in the the Rosen-AIPAC lawsuit .  Bush has serious issues, let’s just leave it at that.

As for Rosen, he just wasn’t an AIPAC lobbyist,  he sat inside the National Security Council until 2005 as the Rand Corporation’s Director of Foreign Policy.  When the press talks about an AIPAC employee and spying, he didn’t join AIPAC until later, after his arrest.

The FBI investigation and his indictment for spying covered a time when he was at the center of the Bush administration, a key policy formulator at the highest levels of government.  Rosen, indicted in 2004 for spying for Israel, was responsible for formulating American policy in the Middle East and largely responsible for the fate of the Palestinian people, a bit of a conflict of interest for an Israeli lobbyist and accused spy.”

Q. Rosen has made some accusations, says AIPAC spies all the time and that they do nothing but watch pornography there.  You worked with this guy, what do you know?

A. “Rosen has dirt on absolutely everyone.  His divorce depositions are fascinating reading.  They are sealed now but there are copies out there.  I know that reporters at Time Magazine have them, others too.  The FBI has tons, they were after Rosen for years.  As for AIPAC, Rosen told me of their spy operations many times, but nobody needed telling, they were more than obvious to all of us.

Q. You talk about Rosen and his “black book,” that he has dirt on “everyone.”  The news stories mentioned only porn.  That doesn’t sound so serious. Dirt, not just porn, what kind of dirt?

A. “Mostly sex stuff, gay bondage, clubs, expense money being spent on sex, liasons in public restrooms, that kind of thing.  Many of the key people around the president are involved and there is FBI surveillance, massive amounts of it, photographs, videos, and one or more undercover informants recorded conversations with top National Security Council members.  Spying, nuclear secrets passed to Israel, this was common place.

I witnessed, with two others, the top Bush counter-terrorism official, actally primary advisor to Bush on counter-terrorism, who had served Clinton and others, pass nuclear weapons plans to an Israeli agent, like it was nothing.”

Q. Did the FBI know about this?

A. “For years, FBI agents, I have a list of names, worked to stop this.  Then I learned that the Department of Justice killed the prosecution, Rosen’s lasted into the Obama administration before it was dropped.  Witnesses were threatened with prosecution and the guilty, the spies, were allowed to keep doing what they are doing.  This is what Rosen knows and what he is talking about when he says AIPAC was involved in spying.  It isn’t just that AIPAC is said to receive information it is that it came from top administration officials.”

Q. Let’s get back to the sex thing.  How high up does it go?

A. “One famous joke around the NSC, there was a photo of someone kissing Laura Bush on the cheek and shaking hands with President Bush.  The same person had, not that long before, using those same lips and hands in a men’s restroom.”

Q. What do you know about 9/11?

A. “9/11 was planned as early as 1999 or before, to be executed as soon as the Bush team was in place.  One meeting in April 2001, a meeting outlining the invasion of Iraq, may have been the green light.’  Chalibi was in place early on, from day number one.  I remember telling them he was a known crook, totally disreputable and that things in Iraq would fall apart immediately.  Nobody in the National Security Council ever spoke about what they would do once Saddam was overthrown.  Nobody really seemed to care.

Of course, none of those people have real experience with military issues or, in fact, much of anything else.”

Q. How was the Iran invasion supposed to work?

A. “This is where so many have it wrong.  In fact, there was never serous discussion about terrorism or Al Qaeda or bin Laden.  These things weren’t even a sideshow.  The only talk about any of it was how it could be used to justify going into Iraq and then attacking Iran.

Q. The intel on Iraq, we all know it was wrong.  When was that learned?

A. “The administration didn’t believe false intelligence, it created it, order it in place before the election to be ready for, well I guess, 9/11.  Silencing Plame and Joe Wilson, those were the same people who planned the creation of the phony intelligence.  There was never a discussion of a serious terrorist threat against the United States.  These guys would have fallen off their chairs laughing themselves to death.  It was all a joke to them, 9/11, the Iraq invasion, all of it.”

Q. Back to Iran, how was the invasion to start?

A. “Everything was going to happen in Bahrain.  Plans were to attack Americans, blow up clubs, restaurants.  There were plans to stage a “Tonkin Gulf’ type attack and blame it on Iranian torpedo boats.  Guys in the military were aware of this and there was strong opposition.   Marine Colonel Joe Molofsky was the real hero here.  He did more to scramble administration plans than anyone else, Molofky and General Mattis.  These were really straight shooters, how I learned to trust the Marine Corps.

The government there, their security services, I believe they were deeply involved.  It would have been good to see something about this in Wikileaks.”

Q. You said that war had to start by 2006.  Was there a timetable?

A. “Absolutely.  General Petraeus was sent to Iraq to quiet things down, not to win a war or create a lasting peace, nothing like that.  His job was to shut things down so an operation against Iran could be staged from Iraq.”

Q. But that never got off the ground…

A. “No kidding, and Bush was enraged.  It was the only reason he was put in office in the first place, as long as Iran survived, he was a failure, no matter what happened to the US.”

Q. Didn’t they know that war with Iran would have driven oil to $300 a barrel and collapsed the American economy?

A. “There were never briefings on that like there were never briefings on stabilizing Iraq.  Nobody cared, nobody noticed and it was never discussed.  It was really all about Iran and orders came in and people did what they were told like good little soldiers.”

Q. Orders?  From where?

A. “All of it, all foreign policy issues, were out of AIPAC, they ran everything in the Bush administration.  That was the whole point of it.  We never were told why we had to destroy Iran only that it had to be done.  Nobody ever asked why.  Nobody ever believed Iran had a credible nuclear program and, eventually, we were all very certain they never would.  There was never an issue about Iran being a threat or not.  There was never an issue of motive of any kind.  These were orders, plain and simple, the administration that will come into office in 2001 will be tasked with destroying Iran, tasked by AIPAC who will control all key position in the administration.”

Q. Was there talk about Lebanon and the threat of Hizbollah?

A. “There really weren’t talks at all, only planning on how to follow policy, never on what policy should be or what was right or wrong.  There was never a discussion about the United States, what was good for America or bad for America.  People were generally oblivious to there being an America.”

  1. When it comes to political blackmail, no one does it better than the zionist jew. They blackmailed Pres.Wilson into getting involved in the war in Europe in 1917. They were most likely involved in the making and passing of the “Espionage Act’. They also blackmailed Wilson into signing the Federal Reserve Act.
    Moving on they blackmailed Truman into supporting israhell. Since then it has been downhill all they way. By now we all know what and how they achieve their goals. Is it possible to even elect someone to Congress or the office of president who is not vulnerable to this pernicious activity?
    What will it take for Americans to see through the facade that has been built up around them? Most are asleep and many more simply don’t give a damn as long as they can watch NASCAR, NFL, Dancing With the Stars or American Idol. It’s a sign of the times isn’t it? Most Americans are too dumbed down or have been so propagandized to believe whatever bullshit is being fed to them daily through the worst news media and press in history.
    The major papers are a joke…only worth wrapping fish in. Network TV news is nothing but a circus of useless information and distraction.
    The major media outlets are zionist owned and nothing but propaganda mills for israhell.
    The internet is now in danger of being either shut down or so censored it will become useless to those in the freedom movement.
    Keep up the excellent work Gordon! I’m trying to turn as many people as I can to your website.
    Another website: Brother Kapner.

  2. Don’t worry about israhell, they’re a cooked goose. Most of the population is contaminated by fallout from D.U. Sperm counts are falling and their jew women are becoming infertile. The babies that will be born will have physical birth defects or born with no brain. They will be totally useless for the zionist murder machine.Call it karma….
    As for Mc Insane: Got his start in politics with Arizona mob money. Cindy’s dad was a member of Meyer Lansky’s mob and was “given” the beer distributorship in that state. There are some who claim to have been in the same POW camp as McInsane and claim that he “sang like a canary”. Who knows?
    McInsane has always supported amnesty for illegals until this past re-election year when Arizonans, by a large majority, were against amnesty.
    Good Ole boy John doesn’t think much of the Constitution or the Bill of Rights either as his support for Patriot Acts 1&2, The John Warner Defense Bullshit Bill and the rest of freedom and liberty stealing acts of this treasonous government.
    I’m willing to bet he has plenty of other skeletons in his closet. He’s no different than any other Washington swine.
    Ok, so now we all know who the real enemy is, where are all the Oath Keepers? What is it going to take for all this to happen? How much more are the American sheeple going to take it up the arse d=before they finally come to the conclusion they are being fist f***? What will be the final straw that broke the camel’s back?
    When the Oath Keepers finally move, they will need all the support we can provide. Even our own lives. The men at Valley Forge knew what sacrifice was. Can we even come close?

    The Wall Street Pentagon Papers:
    Biggest Scam In World History Exposed?

    Can you imagine what we could do to restructure society with $12.3 trillion?
    Think about that.

    People also can’t grasp the colossal crime committed because they keep
    hearing the word “loans.” People think of the loans they get. You borrow
    money, you pay it back with interest, no big deal.

    That’s not what happened here. The Fed doled out $12.3 trillion in near-zero
    interest loans, using the American people as collateral, demanding nothing
    in return, other than a bunch of toxic assets in some cases. They only gave
    this money to a select group of insiders, at a time when very few had any
    money because all these same insiders and speculators crashed the system.

    Do you get that? The very people most responsible for crashing the system,
    were then rewarded with trillions of our dollars. This gave that select
    group of insiders unlimited power to seize control of assets and have
    unprecedented leverage over almost everything within their economies – crony
    capitalism on steroids.

    The Two-Party Oligarchy Vs. The People

    AIPAC: The Voice of America?

  4. “9/11 was planned as early as 1999 or before, to be executed as soon as the Bush team was in place” Do you think this was in part to cover their tracks? This along with Afghanistan, which is also to be said to be planned, were they getting rid of their assets OBL and Hussein? And why did it take so long to set the stage for Iran, what was the major snag for the lag? Can’t wait for the next edition. Thank you Gordon

  5. While we have to be aware of official AIPAC operatives, the most dangerous in my experience have been those who work undercover, subtly brainwashing Americans in behalf of Israel and against Muslims. A current controversy in Oregon relates to such an undercover figure and his temporary appointment to teach his supposed expertise, Islam, at Lane Community College in Eugene. I am familiar witch data that has come from him, and it is easy to recognize the lies that befuddle gullible Americans in behalf of Israel. Many Jewish-Americans I know fuel Israeli militarism with money, and have seduced fundamentalist Christians to support Israeli victimizing of Palestinians. Their way is smoothed by success in bribing many U.S. Congresspersons and Senators to give full support to Israel. The bribes are legal in our cancerous elections system, where massive amounts of private money can be donated to the election campaigns of candidates of both major parties. =
