Richard Perle:

American political advisor and lobbyist who worked for the Reagan administration as an assistant Secretary of Defence and worked on the Defence Policy Board Advisory Committee from 1987 to 2004, member of several conservative think-tanks, including Project for the New American Century PNAC, the Hudson Institute, and the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research.

He also directly works for Israel and was the chair of a study group that included Douglas Feith and David Wurmser that produced a strategy paper for the incoming Likud Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He was exposed by an article in a New York Times for recommending the Army to purchase an armaments system from an Israeli company that a year earlier had paid him $50,000 in consulting fees.

In 1996, Perle participated in a study group that produced a report for the incoming Likud-led government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel that urged the country to break off then-ongoing peace initiatives and suggested strategies for reshaping the Middle East. Among the group’s arguments was the idea that “removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq [was] an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right.”

Paul Wolfowitz

Served in the Defense and State Departments under Carter, Reagan, George H. W. Bush, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defence during the Presidency of George W. Bush.

He is the major architect of President Bush’s Iraq policy.

In 2005 Bush put forth Wolfowitz to be the President of the World Bank. The appointed split the opinion: while the world community horrified about this decision, Wall Street was elated and thrilled.

In 2007, he resigned from the World Bank after an investigation over a promotion he secured for his girlfriend.

Douglas Feith:

Served as the deputy undersecretary of defense for policy and held the number three position at the Pentagon from July 2001 to August 2005.

He was investigated for allegedly distorting prewar intelligence on Iraq, and questioned by the FBI in relation to the passing by one of his employees of confidential Pentagon documents to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which in turn passed them to the Israeli Embassy.

Feith also served on the board of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), which is a think tank promoting a military and strategic alliance between the United States and Israel.

Michael Ledeen:

Served on the JINSA Board of Advisors and co-founded Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs .

He was accused of being involved in the forgery which claimed that Saddam Hussein had bought yellowcake in Niger.

His famous quotes include:

The level of casualties (in Iraq) is secondary”

We (Americans) are a warlike people ..we love war”

“The purpose of total war is to permanently force your will onto another people”

“Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business”
