America’s Iraq Monsters: Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Petraeus and Their Toadies


What America Has Planned for Syria


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


This week, the Guardian released the feature film, James Steele, America’s Mystery Man in Iraq.  The video below is an excerpt from that film, the culmination of a fifteen month investigation into America’s war crimes in Iraq.

The investigation details how the Bush administration with full knowledge and complicity of President Bush (43), Vice President Cheney, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld and General Petraeus, set up death squads, funded Al Qaeda groups, set up militias that killed over 2000 American soldiers and purposefully and systematically pushed Iraq into a civil war that continues to this day.

The Guardian’s story revolves around Colonel James Steele, the Texas based “counter-terrorism expert” who, allied with drug cartels and right wing extremists, helped create a decade of murder and mayhem in Central America.  It was Rumsfeld who brought Steele to Petraeus and Petraeus who put Steele to work, turning rag-tag militia groups into an effective force, death squads, organized groups to continue the slaughter of American troops and the basis of, not just civil war in Iraq but terrorism that would spread from Pakistan to the Congo.

Where so many of us were misled was in being willing to believe Petraeus was something he wasn’t simply because he seemed reasonable.

He wasn’t.

His record in Afghanistan, total defeat for America, a 100,000 percent growth in narcotics exports, a trail of war crimes America will never outlive, the least of the assaults on his “reputation” is the sex scandal that brought him down as CIA director.

What was President Obama thinking, not only placing Petraeus in charge of the CIA but, as we now note, keeping Gates on as Secretary of Defense.

The carefully groomed public persona of both was paper thin, both holdovers of America’s worst, Petraeus and Gates replacing McChrystal and Rumsfeld, allowing both to slink away into obscurity before their combined reputations overwhelmed even the most barbaric of history’s super villains.

Even Stalin, Hitler, Netanyahu and, perhaps even Tony Blair had, at times at least, shown some loyalty to a political doctrine or a form of “national interest,” though perhaps twisted and unrecognizable.

What we see having taken hold in Iraq, an American policy “cooked” in the kitchens of Washington’s “beltway bandit” think tanks, plots hatched by neocons, “greater Israel/Zionist” fanatics and the “apocalypse freaks” of America’s service academies.

The end purpose was clear, guaranteeing a Middle East enslaved by what we all see now, the coalition between the Arabs and Zionists, the real “axis of evil.”

Behind that is a “resource war,” pipelines, choking off oil to play the markets, manipulating tensions against Iraq, threats of world war over Syria and, most of all, maintaining the drug exports from Afghanistan, now totaling over $8,000,000,000,000 so far. (eight trillion dollars)

When you add the other cartels and the Pentagon theft, the total comes to well above America’s sixteen trillion dollar national debt.

When you add three quadrillion in phony derivative debt, created by a cabal of Rockefeller/Rothschild banks and their “enforcer” friends (according to Michael Shrimpton and Benjamin Fulford, the German ‘DVD’), we are talking about enough money to buy every automobile, every barrel of oil, every airliner, every weapon, every morsel of food produced on earth for a thousand years.

Do the math.

Maybe they simply love torturing and murdering people for fun.  After all, shouldn’t we all be used to it by now?

During meetings in Iraq in 2007, I met with some of the militia leaders and clerics mentioned in the Guardian’s article.  I’d like to say I saw everything that was going on.  I didn’t but, when I met people I had been told were enemies of the United States and saw them arrive in bulletproof Chevy Tahoe’s with Blackwater security, it all began to fit together.

The Mossad was operating out of an America base in Mosul and had just killed a Christian Bishop, a member of the Chaldean community.  This was only spoken of in whispers.

We knew millions were being paid to militia groups to keep the Sunni/Shia war going forever and we all knew the reason for that.

Petraeus had been tasked to buy a temporary respite in the war while certain members of the US Navy’s 5th Fleet were tasked with staging a series of terrorist acts in the Persian Gulf region including phony attacks on American ships, terror bombings of “clubs” used by American servicemen and the assassination of selected key American officials including but not limited to Chief Political Officer of the 5th Fleet, Gwyneth Todd.

From 2005 to 2007, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld/Gates and Petraeus were tasked by their “handlers” among the unseen “elites,” to begin a slaughter in Iran.

Having failed at that, those same unseen “elites” are directing a similar methodology against Syria.

As things stand now, the moment Assad is murdered, a new “Petraeus” will be brought in, perhaps Steele himself will return and a decade of slaughter will ensue.

A few things have to happen to allow this:

  1. Imran Khan has to be prevented from being elected to head the government of Pakistan.  The idea of a competent and strong Islamic leader who is respected in America and Europe, taking a major role in world affairs, would be devastating to plans now in motion.
  2. Kurdistan and Iraq have to be split with Turkey and Israel sharing control of Kurdistan and Iraq falling into full scale civil war.
  3. Jordan’s semblance of independence will disappear and the Israeli/American military occupation will begin.
  4. The regional “axis,” Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar will be exposed as the real agents of biblical apocalypse.

I sometimes think of those who believe America would never have done 9/11 with or without Israel.

I ask myself:  “What have we come to that makes so many around us blind, ignorant and cowardly?”

Then I turn on the TV.  Read the names after each show.

See who “makes” what we call news and entertainment.


  1. I watched the trailer. Am half way through the longer Guardian film.

    Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith and others need to go to The Hague. And some military men.

    This is truly appalling. This is what happens when we don’t allow the press in while things are happening to report properly.

    Gordon, thank you for the sober report. The understated quality of it makes it ideal to pass on to nonbelievers.

  2. Gordon,

    If the odious Steele was a part of Iran Contra, would that not make him a contemporary of Cols.Cutolo, Rowe, Sabow, and the others? And the shameful and dishonorably named “School of the Americas,” did he play a role? What makes this guy tick? Is he all there? Seriously–does he know what he’s doing? He sounds like a mini-me Stalin.

  3. Gordon,

    Since this so important to the future of the U.S.A. , and since most politicians are members of the BAR and many of the Police and other Agencies have people with Law Degrees and Bar Memberships, I thought you might want to comment on New Hampshire’s recent action on the 13th Amendment. It seems critical at this point, where they’ve taken us:


    New Hampshire Legislature Reveals U S Federal Government is a “Corporation” Operating with a “Fraudulent Constitution” –

    “the Act of 1871, created a corporation in the District of Columbia called the United States of America. The act revoked prior legislation relative to the district’s municipal charter and, most egregiously, led to adoption of a fraudulent constitution in which the original Thirteenth Amendment was omitted.”

    In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Thirteen

    AN ACT recognizing the original Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

    Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

    1 Preamble and Statement of Intent. The general court hereby finds that:

    I. In 1810, a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibited titles of nobility and which later became known as the original Thirteenth Amendment, was introduced, passed both houses of Congress, and was sent to the states for ratification. On December 9, 1812, shortly after ratification by Virginia, New Hampshire became the thirteenth state to ratify the amendment. The amendment was therefore ratified by the requisite number of states and became Article XIII of the United States Constitution.

    II. During the War Between the States, otherwise known as the Civil War, the country was under martial law, and all executive orders made by President Lincoln were, in effect, law. After the war, laws made during that period were to be abated; yet, vestiges of martial law remained and presidents continued to write executive orders.

    III. The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871, otherwise known as the Act of 1871, created a corporation in the District of Columbia called the United States of America. The act revoked prior legislation relative to the district’s municipal charter and, most egregiously, led to adoption of a fraudulent constitution in which the original Thirteenth Amendment was omitted.

    IV. Today, what appears to the public as the United States Constitution is not the complete document, as it was never lawfully amended to remove the Thirteenth Amendment. Instead, the document presented as the United States Constitution is merely a mission statement for the corporation unlawfully established in the Act of 1871.

    V. The purpose of this act is to recognize that the original Thirteenth Amendment, which prohibits titles of nobility, is properly included in the United States Constitution and is the law of the land. The act is also intended to end the infiltration of the Bar Association and the judicial branch into the executive and legislative branches of government and the unlawful usurpation of the people’s right, guaranteed by the New Hampshire constitution, to elect county attorneys who are not members of the bar. This unlawful usurpation gives the judicial branch control over all government and the people in the grand juries. As long as the original Thirteenth Amendment is concealed from the people, there shall never be justice or a legitimate constitutional form of government.

    2 New Chapter; Thirteenth Amendment. Amend RSA by inserting after chapter 1-A the following new chapter:



    1-B:1 Original Thirteenth Amendment. The following shall be recognized as the original Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution:

    Article XIII

    If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any Emperor, King, Prince or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them or either of them.

    3 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage. :

  4. Gordon Duff is an American treasure. damn the murderous liars. God is going to judge them all. not ONE evil act will go unjudged.

    having said that, it is OUR DUTY to fight this filth here & now.


  5. And, to know they have no regret over what they did. They have no concern, no apology. Sick men doing sick things to innocent people. They killed Kennedy because they thought he was a traitor? Yet these sick and demented people attack the Constitution, slaughter and abuse children, then go on about their lives attending ballgames, and walking out among the people????????? What is this nation becoming? Where is our sense of decency? What did these kids do to deserve their fate Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney? Have you no moral compass?

  6. Kudos Mr. Duff for another excellent informative article! The deceit and hypocrisy of our past and present Repugnicans and DemocRATs leaders/Presidents are still getting the US involved with more of their “endless wars”….and constantly hearing the propaganda/bull$hit the MSMedia spews is disgusting! Seems President Assad’s 2010 plans for the “Five Seas” oil pipeline in Syria wasn’t “kosher” for the powers that be! Yet the US supports Saudi Arabia, UAE…Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Dubai….who are all countries “ruled” by NON ELECTED dictators “kings/ sheiks/princes’ for decades! While the USA is STILL doling out billions to Israel every year, without questioning what they do with the $, … while they’ve continued for decades their war mongering to attack Iran over obtaining nuclear weapons, yet they have not declared their nuclear weapons and refuse to sign the “Non Proliferation Treaty!” Have we forgotten that Israel was making millions in the 1980’s selling arms/weapons to IRAN, during the 8 year war with Iraq…but then…so was the US…arming Saddam in Iraq AND selling weapons to IRAN, per the Iran Contra scandal….& the October Surprise of Reagan/Bush and the mtg in Paris with representatives for the “deal” with the Ayotollah Khomeni’s regime to hold the US hostages in Iran till after Reagan was sworn in! My memory is long and no more “willful blindness” in believing the bull$hit we’re fed.

  7. Will not be seen here on main stream media of course.
    It was shown on TV in the Netherlands.
    There on TV were also been the bloody parts of bodies in the fights.
    Everything has to be sterile here, no reality of real war.
    Poor Americans might get upset.
    Hypocrisy, they love fake violent movies. The violent video games.
    But from reality the American gun loving people have to be shunned.
    Only the people who’s sons or daughters come back in pieces are than finally getting upset.
    It baffles the mind that there are still people claiming, we went there to protect our country.
    Calling people of Iraq, insurgents, native people who want foreigners out of there country and
    than set up by us to start a sectarian fight. What is still going on to day and is going on now in Syria.

  8. …and our innocent children we cannot protect continue to suffer. There is a war of words over our planet, words are seeds sown in the minds of the masses. Whole nations can either prosper or go under through words given voice. Wars are manufactured on lies and life and death are held in the power of the tongue. Words of truth are destroying the propaganda of this world. Propaganda is an ideology, a predictable ideology released through fully conspiring media. This truth is inconceivable to those whose minds are held hostage under a criminal Zionist media whose dominion has propelled this curse upon mankind. The curse is taking the truth, denying it and replacing or covering it with lies.
    There are two groups of people, one moved and mobilized through lies, the other moved by truth, inconceivable to those who do not know and undeniable to those who do.

  9. Wow. Superb article. Another grand slam homerun by Gordon Duff. General Betrayus didn’t only betray the American people who trusted him, he betrayed everyone else close to him. These scum who were in positions of high command and believe thwey are above the law, need to be tried as war criminals, and that include Cheney, Bush2 and Rumsfield as well as Betrayus and Steele.

  10. The Guardian also just published a report on certain British soldiers’ “duties” at Camp Nama, a secret US prison at Baghdad International Airport, which mentions that McChrystal was seen there on frequent occasions. Sounds like a lovely place to spend an evening-
    “I saw one man having his prosthetic leg being pulled off him, and being beaten about the head with it before he was thrown on to the truck,” said a British serviceman who had served at Camp Nama.

  11. very nice piece Gordon, thank you.

    it puzzles me a little that the British press are talking of Brit troop withdrawal from Afghanistan without any mention of why they were ever there in the first place, or whether any “mission” was accomplished. i suppose this is just the poor quality of journalism. but there is little chance of bringing rogue politicians to book if the history is suppressed to this extent.

    btw i was away for a few days and have therefore missed whatever has happened to Michael Shrimpton. but i’d noticed (with a slightly raised eyebrow) some while ago that he was handling the police intelligence whistle-blower Tony Farrell. if Farrell is kosher that is quite a hot potato – has that matter anything to do with the nails thrown under Shrimp’s vintage car? since Jim Fetzer has platformed Farrell’s co-worker Nick Kollerstrom here i guess VT knows how this is progressing. sorry its a tad off-topic , but i have no alternative channel on which to pop this question. on the “weakest link” view one of the roads to 911 leads through 7/7, since Peter Power’s grimy fingerprints make an interesting trail.

  12. Yes. It is the G.O.D. Principal. GUNS OIL DOPE. This is it. Organized Crime has taken over wholesale. Total mayhem. Gordon has hipped us to this before. Zionists and Dope, phony bank debt and wars. It makes money. Some sad sh*t. Dean Henderson’s books are a good resource for this I think too.
