In 2013, Gordon Duff argued that the NSA doesn’t protect the United States and is a waste of money. As a case study, Duff pointed out that the NSA couldn’t even be used to propagate the war in Iraq. It was people like Paul Wolfowitz, said Duff, “who made up crazy lies about Iraq.” The scholarly literature was on Duff’s side again.
Elizabeth Drew of the New York Review of Books argued in 2003 that the Neoconservatives “are largely responsible for getting us in the war against Iraq,” stating that they hold “positions in the Pentagon and in the White House and they even have a mole in the State Department.”
John J. Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen M. Walt of Harvard came to similar conclusions. Specific individuals include Richard Perle, who
“headed the Defence Policy Board…James Woolsey, who has served two Democratic and two Republican administrations…Kenneth Adelmann…Paul Wolfowitz…Douglas Feith…Lewis Libby.”
Most of these Neocons were strongly influenced by the late Albert Wohlstetter, a Jewish professor at the University of Chicago. Scholars Stefan Halper and Jonathan Clarke write that instead of telling the truth, the Neoconservatives “spun a web of deception with a reason ‘du jour’ being offered other than the truth.”
Thomas Friedman of the New York Times told Haaretz in 2003 that the plan for war in Iraq
“was disseminated by a small group of 25 or 30 neoconservatives, almost all of them Jewish, almost all of them intellectuals (a partial list: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Elliott Abrams, Charles Krauthammer), people who are mutual friends and cultivate one another and are convinced that political ideas are a major driving force of history.
“They believe that the right political idea entails a fusion of morality and force, human rights and grit. The philosophical underpinnings of the Washington neoconservatives are the writings of Machiavelli, Hobbes and Edmund Burke.”
Wolfowitz was so aggressive about invading Iraq that one Republican lawmaker declared Wolfowitz “was like a parrot bringing [Iraq] up all the time. It was getting on the President’s nerves.” After one such meeting in Washington, we are told that Colin Powell rolled his eyes, declaring, “Jeez, what a fixation about Iraq.”
When Wolfowitz was told by deputy national security advisor Stephen Hadley that there was no link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, Wolfowitz responded with certainty, “We’ll find it. It’s got to be there,” which is another way of saying that if the evidence does not exist, they would make it up. Why? Because people like Wolfowitz are masters of crafting “crazy lies.”
But if you think that Wolfowits was the only crazy person on the block, think again. In spite of evidence of wrongdoing, some Neoconservatives did blame the 2008 economic crash on terrorists and parties outside the United States! Kevin D. Freeman, the author of “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses,” declared then that “a three-phased attack was planned and is in the process against the United States economy.”
This theory was so crazy that it was quickly rejected even by the Washington Post.
To go back to our central point: the NSA played no part in the war in Iraq. But it did and still does play a major part in snooping on virtually every single American and country around the world, despite the fact that there was no evidence showing that NSA bulk surveillance stopped terrorist activities, and despite the fact that we spent billions upon billions of dollars on the program.
Who was defending the NSA then? Well, the usual suspects: the National Review, the Weekly Standard, Wall Street Journal, Commentary, etc. Robert Spencer wrote an article back in 2014 defending the FBI and NSA spying on Muslims who he said were potential terrorists.
So, according to the Neoconservative worldview, spying on virtually everyone (except the state of Israel) for the sake of “national security” is right. But that promiscuous thesis has fallen on hard time. It has recently been reported that the NSA has been used to spy on some of its creators, namely, the Zionist regime in Israel. How did the Neocons and their puppets respond?
Well, you know the drill. They told us that it is wrong, always, everywhere, and for anyone, to use the NSA to spy on foreign potentates like Benjamin Netanyahu. We are also told that the Obama administration has committed an unpardonable sin, even though it was reported that Netanyahu himself spied on the Iran talks. Jewish Neocon Jonathan S. Tobin has said that Obama “crosses a line of spying.” Ben Carson—bless his heart—has called it
“truly disgraceful. Instead of focusing on deterring the Iran nuclear threat and fighting against the Mullahs who chant ‘Death to America,’ President Obama has treated Israel, our staunch, democratic ally in the Middle East, as his real enemy.”
Marc Rubio, another Israeli puppet, declared:
“Obviously people read that report they have a right to be concerned about it this morning. They have a right to be concerned about the fact that, while some leaders around the world are no longer being targeted, our strongest ally in the Middle East, Israel, is. These are all concerns and they’re legitimate.”
Now, get this: those puppets said nothing when it was widely reported that the NSA was spying on virtually every single American. In fact, most of those puppets defended the NSA then. And let us not forget that Bush authorized the NSA’s unconstitutional activities back in 2005.
So, we are seeing a blatant double standard here. As former C.I.A. official Philip Giraldi has put it:
“How dare we spy on the head of a ‘friendly’ government? Cries of outrage are coming from the usual sources—National Review, the Weekly Standard, and the Wall Street Journal—as this is America’s ‘greatest friend and closest ally’ that we are talking about. Or is it? Israel spies on the United States more than any other ostensibly friendly government does.
“It has never hesitated to put its own interests first without concern for blowback against the American people. When it is caught out it lies: it did so in the 1954 Lavon Affair, when it would have blown up a U.S. government building; in 1967, when it tried to sink the USS Liberty; and yet again in 1987 to cover up the Jonathan Pollard spy case.
“Nor is Israel shy about interfering in American politics. It openly supported Mitt Romney against Barack Obama in 2012. In 2009 Congresswoman Jane Harman was contacted by an Israeli intelligence ‘agent’ and asked to attempt to influence a reduction of the espionage charges in the then ongoing trial of accused American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) spies Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman.
“In return, Harman’s contact promised to support her bid to become chairman of the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence. The Israeli caller, who some suspect was leading Democratic Party donor Haim Saban himself, indicated that he would pressure House speaker Nancy Pelosi using threats to withhold political contributions if Harman were not given the position.
“Harman was later spoken of as a possible candidate to become Director of Central Intelligence and, without the FBI recordings of her phone conversations, which were made known to Pelosi, she might have obtained either position, or possibly both in succession. (Saban, who has claimed that ‘I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel,’ is currently poised to become the Hillary Clinton campaign’s principal financial contributor.)
“So Washington was tapping Netanyahu’s phones to determine what he was up to and who was leaking classified information. And when the phones were tapped, something interesting developed.
“A number of congressmen were identified speaking to the Israeli officials, who were apparently trying to find out what inducement it would take to obtain a vote against the White House on Iran. And, of course, there might have been more than that, with some congressmen possibly offering to give the Israelis a little encouragement or even help.
“As the details of the conversations and the names of the congressmen have been redacted in the transcript version that went to the White House, we might never know exactly what happened, but it should be observed that the provision of classified information to someone representing a foreign government is a clear violation of the Espionage Act of 1918.
“The NSA is not obligated to turn over information it obtains to the Justice Department for prosecution. Nevertheless, given the possibility that there were criminal violations impacting on national security, it would be very interesting to find out who said what to whom in the transcripts of the complete conversations retained by NSA.
“Then there are the Jewish organizations that were evidently being briefed, coached, and organized by the Israeli Embassy to oppose the White House proposals. That would be a violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act of 1938, which requires any organization offering to work on behalf of a foreign government to register.
“That means, among other indignities, revealing their sources of funding. As most pro-Israel organizations have 501(c)(3) educational foundation tax status, that might prove most embarrassing and provide yet another bit of evidence to substantiate criticisms of how the Israel lobby is organized and operates to the detriment of American interests.”
So, the Zionist regime and its puppets want to apply one standard for everyone and a completely different standard for themselves. For example, puppet Mike Huckabee has said that surveilling mosques in the United States is consistent with the First Amendment. Political slut and whore Ann Coulter insinuated back in 2005:
“I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East, and sending liberals to Guantanamo.”
We can ignore political perverts like Coulter. But Muslims should have accepted Huckabee’s dubious challenge. They should have said something like this:
“All right, Mr. Huckabee. We agree. But we should apply this principle universally, which is to say that we should place surveillance cameras in Synagogues and churches throughout the United States. We want to know what you guys have been up to. ”
How would organized Jewry respond to this? Huckabee is an evangelical Christian. What would his congregation say if they knew that they were being spied upon?
You see, the New World Order agenda, which is sending both political parties in the United States to the slaughter house, simply doesn’t work. It only exists in the minds of morons and mush-heads.
