  Pushed, Are Pushing and Will Keep Pushing America Into Israel's Wars (2)

11 November 2011 
 

Scooter Libby:

Served as Assistant to President Bush, Chief of Staff to the Vice President Dick Cheney, and Assistant to the Vice President for National Security Affairs from 2001 to 2005.

He is the highest-ranking White House official to be convicted of a felony since the Iran-Contra scandal of the mid-1980s. The case brought new attention to the Bush administration's much-criticized handling of weapons of mass destruction intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war.

During the four-and-a-half years before the formal charge laid against him, Libby had been "scooting" from scandal to scandal, including the Iraq intelligence debacle and the secret meetings about Halliburton contracts.

Charles Krauthammer:

Neoconservative columnist and commentator with articles appearing regularly on Fox News, Washington Post, Time magazine and The Weekly Standard.

He asserted that Saddam Hussein’s possession of weapons of mass destruction was certain.

Recently he gloated coldly in his column on the brutal murder of ammar Gaddafi: "You’ve got your Mexican standoff, your Russian roulette, your Chinese water torture [apparently the world only knows about water board torture by CIA, but needs to be educated by this American-Jew what water torture is]. And now, your Libyan crossfire. That’s when a pistol is applied to the head and a bullet crosses from one temple to the other." [What a blood-thirsty xxx!]

Stephen Bryen:

Worked for Perle, the assistant secretary of defence to President Ronald Reagan, and supported a number of hardline pro-Israel groups like the Center for Security Policy (CSP) and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA).

Prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Bryen was part of a core group of foreign policy hardliners and neoconservatives who advocated on overthrowing Saddam Hussein.

In a January 2002 article for National Review Online, Bryen pushed the erroneous thesis that Iraq had maintained a well-developed biological weapons program since the first Gulf War in 1991, making it the “leading threat” to “global survival.”

He once had a role in deciding what sensitive U.S. military technology would be made available to Israel for use in its own burgeoning arms industry, and has been accused of using his insider connections in Washington to the benefit of Israel.

David Frum:

While still a Canadian citizen, he was one of the few foreign nationals working within the White House, as President Bush's speechwriter, and was widely cited as having authored the phrase “axis of evil,”

Being a vociferous voices in White House calling for war in Iraq, he wrote in 2003 claiming that the Iraqis 'welcoming their liberators.

Robert Kagan:

A co-founder of the Project for the New American Century, and a foreign policy advisor to New York Representative and Republican vice presidential candidate Jack Kemp, he worked at the State Department Bureau of Inter-American Affairs.

Like other neoconservatives, he is a hawk on Middle East policies. During the George W. Bush presidency, he was an eager booster of the Iraq war.

David Wurmser:

A Swiss-American dual citizen and the Middle East Adviser to US Vice President Dick Cheney, and once served as special assistant to John R. Bolton at the State Department.

He was also a former research fellow on the Middle East at the American Enterprise Institute.

In 2000, he helped draft a document entitled “Ending Syria’s Occupation of Lebanon: the US Role?”, which claimed that Syria was developing “weapons of mass destruction”.

After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Undersecretary of Defences Douglas Feith appointed Wurmser to a secret two-man Pentagon intelligence unit. One of their products, days after the attacks, was a memo that suggested “hitting targets outside the Middle East in the initial offensive” or a “non-Al Qaeda target like Iraq.”

On September 4, 2004, he was questioned by FBI counterintelligence investigators about the passing of classified information to Ahmad Chalabi and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
