Bloomberg Caught in “Psyop” Treason

Bloomberg plays hoax against Obama

By Gordon Duff and Press TV


A bizarre Bloomberg story, citing what was represented to be one of the biggest intelligence leaks in US history, hit during the G8 conference and the critical meetings between US President Obama and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

The purpose of the story by Bloomberg News, now exposed as a hoax, was to hamstring and humiliate President Obama in his meetings with Putin and show American weakness and indecision on Syria, not just that but demonstrate American recklessness and disregard for international law.

US intelligence officials tell us they see a strong pattern of “planted” news stories, and phony “leaks,” all meant to sell a “war of deception” they say is part of an hostile operation against the US by a foreign intelligence agency.

Lavrov responds

When Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov heard the story of the supposedly planned US air attack on Syria put out by Bloomberg News, he immediately made a press release, one censored in the US, that exposed Bloomberg and debunked their claims. From Veterans Today:

“As yet, the contracts are not finished, they have not been delivered in full.”

Lavrov also repeated Russia’s strong objection to a no-fly zone to be implemented over Syria.

During an interview with Lebanon’s al-Manar TV in late May, Assad said Damascus is already in possession of the first batch of S-300 missile defense systems from Russia.

He noted that the second shipment of the Russian systems will be delivered to Syria soon.

Russia says that the shipment of the S-300 missile defense systems is aimed at deterring foreign intervention in Syria.”

On June 18, 2013, Jeffrey Goldberg of Bloomberg News wrote a story outlining what he purported to a White House meeting during which Secretary of State Kerry advocated the immediate bombing of Syria.

That story has now been exposed as a total hoax, fed to Bloomberg, not by a “White House leaker” but rather a “construct” by a foreign intelligence agency as part of a wide “psyop” meant to exploit tensions between the US and Russia.

Colonel James B. Hanke, USA Special Forces (ret), former attaché to Israel and a top US intelligence officer has confirmed that no such meeting had occurred, nothing of the kind had been discussed and that the story itself is a serious security problem for the United States:

“This is Bloomberg, caught with their pants down lying about Russia’s delivery of the S 300 missile system now caught again lying about an American attack. We certainly have a basis for investigating those behind this hoax as being involved in not just espionage and but even treason.”

Secretary of State Kerry has been a strong opponent of US military involvement in Syria. Not just that, both Kerry and Dempsey are totally aware that the Russian built S 300 system is fully operational and that the US would lose aircraft in such an attack, even if the US supported such an attack, which it doesn’t.

There was not only no discussion of bombing, the idea of it is absurd, a fantasy clearly demonstrating that Bloomberg has a dangerous agenda and that reports of high level leaks are, to an extent, also hoaxes meant to sell an intelligence “psyop” war against the United States.”

Other sources within the highest levels of the Department of Defense (DOD) indicated that US policy in Syria, despite the flurry of news stories to the contrary, is moving toward an increasing American disengagement:

“Gordon, simply put, the US doesn’t have a ‘dog in this hunt.’ We have nothing to gain in Syria and have no choice but to let this play out.

We are going to continue our hardline with Iran, waiting for a move there but in Syria, we have no desire to harm relations with Russia, a nation President Obama has strong plans to partner with during his second term.”

Even the US military exercise in Jordan, one said to be a precursor to American moves against is being shown to be something quite different. As early as March, reports of a 20,000 man US force in Jordan came from Israel’s DEBKA Files.

In fact, Bloomberg and DEBKA, a propaganda organ for Shin Bet and Mossad, one invariably outlandishly wrong and embarrassingly biased, seem to be functioning as “one in the same.”


From highest-level intelligence sources at the White House:

“We are ‘staking out’ Jordan, we have to. It’s the ‘high ground’ in the region. After the fall of Al Quasar to Assad, Al Nusra, a ‘nasty bunch’ began moving on Iraq. They were kicked out of Syria, weren’t prepared to go against Hezbollah in Lebanon and Jordan didn’t want them around.

They immediately began a terror bombing campaign in Iraq’s cities. Maliki saw this ploy and moved even more troops to the Syrian and Jordanian border.

We have to be prepared to back up Iraq from the other side, this is one of the reasons we left forces in Jordan.

Allowing a cross border civil war on engulf both Iraq and Syria would overshadow even Bush era military blunders, something previously thought impossible.

Technically, we are supporting both sides in what is now a regional conflict. We can only hope this begins to sort out in Geneva.”

Bloomberg deception

Goldberg’s article of June 18 was, to be generous, a broad attack on reality.

He began with citing what he claimed to be multiple unnamed sources in the White House “Situation Room,” present at highest level meetings that typically have only the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in attendance.

These meetings are chaired by the White House National Security Advisor. Sources indicate that “designate,” Susan Rice would have been there.

In fact, no one was there at all, the meetings never happened. If they had and if they had been reported by “three sources” as Goldberg indicates, this would be the largest single intelligence leak since Jonathan Pollard.

Goldberg would have found himself in front of a federal grand jury.

What is clear is that Bloomberg had a clear agenda. Any real White House meeting would, at least by the standards of the American/Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) look like a “convention of anti-Semites.”

Obama has been cited as the most “Israeli unfriendly” president in recent history. General Martin Dempsey, far from being “soft spoken” as Goldberg states, is a strong willed and the only general officer in the Army to have refused paid “junket” visits to Israel.

High-level sources cite the carefully staged and broadly misrepresented Benghazi attacks, a coordinated offensive with strong Israeli/Neocon fingerprints meant to, not just rig the American presidential election but, in the process, destroy Susan Rice, a major skeptic regarding Israel’s “friendship” with the United States.

From Bloomberg:

“At a principals meeting in the White House situation room, Secretary of State John Kerry began arguing, vociferously, for immediate U.S. airstrikes against airfields under the control of Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian regime — specifically, those fields it has used to launch chemical weapons raids(1) against rebel forces.

It was at this point that the current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the usually mild-mannered Army General Martin Dempsey, spoke up, loudly. According to several sources, Dempsey threw a series of brushback pitches at Kerry, demanding to know just exactly what the post-strike plan would be and pointing out that the State Department didn’t fully grasp the complexity of such an operation.

Dempsey informed Kerry that the Air Force could not simply drop a few bombs, or fire a few missiles, at targets inside Syria: To be safe, the U.S. would have to neutralize Syria’s integrated air-defense system (2), an operation that would require 700 or more sorties. At a time when the U.S. military is exhausted (3) and when sequestration is ripping into the Pentagon budget (4)…

Officials with knowledge of the meeting say that Kerry gave as good as he got, and that the discussion didn’t reach aneurysm-producing levels. But it was, in diplomatic parlance, a full and frank vetting of the profound differences between State and Defense(5) on Syria”

Bloomberg puts Debka “talking points” into “White House mouths”

As with any intelligence operation, there are issues of timing, of goals and potential risks. Bloomberg believed it had hit a “home run” when their hoax hit key news sources in the Middle East and even Russia.

With all attribution stripped off and feeding on a sea of anti-American sentiment, there would be a large audience for another Obama administration scandal and a story intended to undermine US policy and endanger US security.

(1) Bloomberg seems to have been “tasked” with selling the cover story on chemical weapons. The US had already been pressured into a weak response in accepting poorly substantiated claims of WMD use by Assad’s forces. Bloomberg was sent out to make that weak US response look like something more, thus the imaginary Kerry “bombing scenario.”

(2) Bloomberg mentions an “integrated air defense system,” one Syria has had for decades. However, Bloomberg, in failing to acknowledge the devastatingly effective S 300 system, tries to “hammer square history into a round hole of lies.” Bloomberg, despite Russian government statements, still tries to sell the idea the S300 has never been delivered, tying them to an earlier hoax of their own making.

(3) Whether the US military is “exhausted” or not, the idea that this would be discussed in the White House in front of “underlings” who run to Jeffrey Goldberg is beyond insane.

(4) Here, Bloomberg is attacking the Obama administration citing an economic squeeze orchestrated by the Israel lobby through AIPAC and its control of the Republican Party.

(5) The “killer,” of course, is Bloomberg’s colorful mythology, attempting to show the Obama administration as, not just factionalized but Secretary of State Kerry as militarily inept, psychologically unstable and both Kerry and General Martin Dempsey as uninformed as Bloomberg itself.

Invented news now the norm

When Bloomberg published an unattributed story claiming the US Secretary of State was advocating military action in Syria that would likely lead to a full-scale military confrontation between the United States and Russia, no one asked questions.

The White House, busy at the G 8, couldn’t respond. A denial of something to fanciful and far-fetched would, in itself, give the story credence.

Bloomberg knew this. This is why they felt free to publish, knowing a denial would not be forthcoming.

In the real world, a story like this would represent a major intelligence leak at the White House. Policy level conferences involve the highest imaginable security clearances.

Leaks from such meetings can and should mean decades in prison, unless, of course, the stories are totally fabricated.

There was no mention by the White House of a leak. There was no leak. There should never have been a story.

There was only the abuse of a free press by an organization seeking to use the platform of “mainstream journalism” to sell imaginary international plots and sow the seeds of war and suffering.

The problem is, these stories, once invented, each either a total hoax, always unsourced, always an attractive mythical narrative meant to feed wild conspiracy theories, aren’t coming from “blogosphere” but from multi-billion dollar news organizations.

From there, they seed into the conspiracy sites on the internet, become even wilder and more speculative and reverberate and grow like ripples on a pond.

    The US goal in Syria was to get rid of President Assad, a leader that the vast majority of Syrians support keeping. Then the next goal was to get rid of the Russian military base in Syria and install a puppet that would stand by and doing nothing as Israel steals Syria’s land for the next couple of decades. This is why the western backed militants have been doing everything they can to destroy Syria and kill innocent civilians, a weakened Syria would be easier for the Israel to steal bit by bit.

    One of the reasons for the re-pivot into the Asia Pacific was to make it look like the US had lost interest in the Middle East because obviously America does not want to be seen as complicit in the stealing of Syrian land for Israel, something that most Muslim would not agree with anymore than they agree with Israel stealing Palestinian land.

    Everyone knows about the US plan for a ‘Great Israel’ so that the US can use this country to control the Middle East. Thankfully the Russians have no intentions of losing their military base in Syria and they will not be letting the US have a no fly zone over Syria at the UN and also the Russians will be supplying the Syrian Army with some serious weapons including the S300.

    The free world is on Russia side on this one, the Americans and Israelis do not have a hope.

    From the man who knew it “from the inside” – Alestar Crowley confessed:
    “To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worth while. The natural laziness of the mind tempts one to eschew authors who demand a continuous effort of intelligence. The first discipline of education must therefore be to refuse resolutely to feed the mind with canned chatter.
    People tell me that they must read the papers so as to know what is going on. In the first place, they could hardly find a worse guide. Most of what is printed turns out to be false, sooner or later. Even when there is no deliberate deception, the account must, from the nature of the case, be presented without adequate reflection and must seem to possess an importance which time shows to be absurdly exaggerated; or vice versa. No event can be fairly judged without background and perspective.”

    “Detering western aggression” Then why didn’t he pull his head fm his ass in time to save Libya fm total destrustion and dissolution into warring tribal fiefdoms? If Libya had gotten the ( late ) support that Syria got it wouldn’t look like the worst parts of Iraq right now ( Mission accomplished neo-con bastards )….Why not send the S-400’s to Iran? ( FOR $$ ) Why can’t human beings just do the right thing ever w/o examining it fm every self-advantageous angle?

    When is time time to stop calling something a Hoax and call it what it really is???

    @ rac:

    Believe it or not there are a multitude of individuals highly skilled at interpreting photographs for information that is not seen by the average individual.These photos are taken apart bit by bit to see the unseen.

    • rac  June 27, 2013 at 3:24 pm

      It has got to be all over the place, like hand gesture “signals” in court rooms and corporate logos.

  6. PAUL LEO FASO  June 27, 2013 at 8:30 am

    This is a very important item in that it strikes at the heart of the beast ensnaring America.

    By now you have figured out that “the foreign intelligence agency” bent upon stirring conflict between Russia and America, has also been working full time on other “projects”.

    It should be noted that the assertions made regarding the relationship between Israel, President Obama, and certain military commanders, reflect the real battleground in the war for truth. As such, the Bloomberg psyop is a pivotal reminder of the levels of deceit that are attempted in this contest.

    To peel the onion back further, the events of Benghazi are indeed very critical in not only understanding what is happening in Syria now, but the implications of what has happened back though 9/11 and the grand scheme of undiscovered checkmate being strategized on the global chessboard.

    The following items are provided to support the observations made by Gordon Duff on the Republicans, Benghazi, Israel, Obama and the Military;


    Not to be missed; the Piecznik video interview on Benghazi.

    Additionally, the links following this item will connect any remaining dots.

    As to these kinds of news stories, how about the unlikely story about Putin and the ring? After a 2 hour investment meeting, Putin and the western investor had a photo op, and the investor claims he saw Putin looking at the ring on his hand. Seriously, how often does someone with a ring in the middle of a high profile photo-op notice that someone is looking at their hand?

    Then, right in the middle of the photo op the investor gives Putin the ring. Putin puts it on, everyone is smiling about it and the photo op ends, and no one objects about it. Eight years later the investor, who already has a bunch of these rings, says that the ring was stolen at the meeting?

    Try this sometime. After spending 2 hours at a party with a friend with a fancy ring, get a group photo of you, him, and others. Then look at his hand and see if he even notices.

    “Invented news now the norm”

    I am really curious for the MSM development and I would not be surprised if the MSM survives even if there are not enough people to finance them and their lies by buying their products (because the MSM is financed by some sort of interlocked fiat money card houses).

    • Allesandro  June 27, 2013 at 1:01 pm

      I think the MSM is designed to operate even at a substantial loss. If this is the case, their shaping of public opinion, the ability to generate fear, and greed, would allow them to make up ANY losses suffered in the media itself, by gains in the stock and bond markets, as just one example.

      So the ability to use the media in other areas that they control is worth way more than whatever small, medium or large losses generated by setting up and running the media empire with all it’s incidental licensing and operational costs.

      In other words for them its a loss leader. Surprised? In this case used to embarrass and sour relations between 2 potential allies, and by the way not long after Israel NUKED Syria on I believe May 4th, 2013.

      The treachery of the NYC Mayor the “Bloombito” and his colleagues is quite amazing, they must be desperate, it shows.

      Just discussing this fact today with a U.K. Man. “Invented news now the norm.” I think News has been invented for eons myself. 99.9%. 🙂 Newspapers, the MAIN ONES, have unlimited sources because the wealthy of the wealthiest own all the big Printing houses. :-)) Part of their agendas to own the top 25 of the NEWSPAPERS ‘Editors’ anyway’, so sure by now they own them all too. Just a guess though. 🙂

    Great article Mr. Duff. To the point and funny!

    Interesting that Tarpley is supporting that nonsense about “bombing”. His credibility is seriously weakened that way. On the other hand maybe he wants to prevent the ebb of the public opinion’s outrage against the possibility of the US invading Syria, to keep the fire on? The thing with Kerry – he’s a Bonesman. His loyalty can be and should be always questioned (RIP Tim Russet). Probably you should never trust him, keep him in a spotlight,the pressure on so that he cannot flip on his position? Even Voltairenet seems to distrust him: “drowned in opposite statements”.
    Goldberg is one of the worst scum of the Earth, see his outlandish attempts to discredit recent Iranian elections.Why would any honest, decent, reasonable person believe in the fabrications of this pathetic former Israeli prison guard?
    There is something important going on with all this fake drama around this whistle-blower poster boy Snowden and all Russian personnel of the Tartus base being evacuated.

    I see headlines “Unusual, weird Wimbledon” and methinks – another Mossad/MI6 false flag terror attack in London?
    They failed during last Olympic Games, may be now it’s good time to try again, with the 4th of July celebrations over the pond also being a good target? Is there any Jewish holiday coming around this weekend? Hasbara on various fora also seems unusually silent… If other top players will be forced out from Wimbledon today I would be very worried…

    • JS  June 27, 2013 at 8:34 am

      Yes, June 26 RT story, “All personnel withdrawn from Russian navy base in Syria – diplomat”, at ****** This sounds like it could be one of the preconditions for the Geneva conference.

    • lawrencedickerson  June 27, 2013 at 2:03 pm

      If you noticed,one of the main reasons for the Russian withdrawal was that if one of their personnel were somehow engaged in a firefight it may have had broad implications that Russia had indeed entered into the foray of combat supporting Assad.It was stated that the base was not needed.This was a wise d ecision under any circumstances.

    • JS  June 27, 2013 at 3:13 pm

      Yes, I noticed, and yes, it was a smart move.

    • nancybisset  June 27, 2013 at 8:12 pm

      Great blog LightSaber.:-) So happy to see RIP Tim Russet. He was coming out with so much truth, I would talk to him via my living room. It was so refreshing to hear someone bringing out truth. I would talk to his colleagues (as if they could hear me 🙂 yelling at them to pick up Tim Russets torch and run with it. He opened the door but who stepped up to carry it? I was so distressed at his death you would have thought he was a close family member. BUT he shared truth like you are here LightSaber.

      With the way the energy feels around us there is something brewing in the air. I hope we can ward any attack off. People have no idea what insane idiots we are dealing with running the show right now.

      Funny all the surveillance in the cities and all over your malls and private space, you would stop any attacks on our US soil. But the false flags are not stopped. Surprize surprize. 🙂 Thanks for your insight. Always enjoy your share of knowledge. Helps me learn more, I trust your words. 🙂

    • LightSaber  June 30, 2013 at 10:05 am

      Thank you for your kind words Nancy. We are all in this together. I only wish that people like Russet, Hastings and others, as well as their friends had been more careful. I do believe there are some protocols, routines that can be used with the help of real friends to prevent such premature deaths like of these two “speakers for the truth”.
      Stay well. LS
