- Lyndon LaRouche reports that there is now firm evidence
that the ongoing drive to induce President George W. Bush to launch a war
against Iraq, is a 1996 Israeli government policy that is being foisted
on the President by a nest of Israeli agents inside the U.S. government.
This Israeli spy network inside the United States was unable achieve their
objective until President Bush was entrapped by the events of Sept. 11,
2001 and the falsified accounts of those events provided by this foreign
intelligence apparatus, and lured over to their policies. Lyndon LaRouche
demands to know: Is this not the motive that explains the who and why of
the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001? LaRouche demands an immediate Congressional
investigation, to help purge the U.S. government of this foreign intelligence
apparatus, which attempted, with the 9/11 events, to seize control over
U.S. foreign policy. The network of Pollard "stay-behinds" inside
the Bush Administration is engaged in a witting hoax, to induce the President
and the U.S. Congress to go to war.
- When you read the summary evidence below, you will certainly
share Lyndon LaRouche's conclusion that all of these people must be immediately
fired from their Administration posts, and that the U.S. Congress must
launch public hearings to get to the bottom of this criminal scheme.
- The summary facts are as follows:
- On July 8, 1996, Richard Perle, now the Chairman of the
Defense Policy Board, an advisory group that reports to Deputy Defense
Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, presented a written document to Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, spelling out a new Israeli foreign policy,
calling for a repudiation of the Oslo Accords and the underlying concept
of "land for peace"; for the permanent annexation of the entire
West Bank and Gaza Strip; and for the elimination of the Saddam Hussein
regime in Baghdad, as a first step towards overthrowing or destabilizing
the governments of Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Iran. The document
was prepared for the Jerusalem and Washington, D.C.-based Institute for
Advanced Strategic and Political Studies (IASPS), a think tank financed
by Richard Mellon-Scaife. The report, "A Clean Break: A New Strategy
for Securing the Realm," was co-authored by Perle; Douglas Feith,
currently the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy; David Wurmser,
currently special assistant to State Department chief arms control negotiator
John Bolton; and Meyrav Wurmser, now director of Mideast Policy at the
- Two days after he received the foreign policy blueprint
from Perle, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu delivered a speech before
a joint session of the U.S. Congress, which strongly echoed the IASPS outline.
The same day, the Wall Street Journal published excerpts from the IASPS
document, and the next day, July 11, 1996, the Journal editorially endorsed
the Perle document.
- Beginning in February 1998, the British government of
Prime Minister Tony Blair launched a concerted effort, in league with the
Netanyahu government in Israel, and the Perle Israeli agent-of-influence
networks inside the United States, to induce President William Clinton
to launch a war against Iraq, under precisely the terms spelled out for
Netanyahu in the "Clean Break" paper. The war was to be launched,
ostensibly, over Iraq's possession of "weapons of mass destruction."
United Nations weapons inspectors were, at this time, still on the ground
- To buttress the war drive, British Foreign Secretary
Robin Cook issued an official lying "white paper" on the Iraqi
drive to obtain WMD. On Feb. 19, 1998, Richard Perle and former Congressman
Stephen Solarz released an "Open Letter to the President," demanding
a full-scale U.S.-led drive for "regime change" in Baghdad. The
dangerously incompetent military scheme for the overthrow of Saddam that
was published in the Open Letter, has been recently revived by the Perle-led
network of "chickenhawks" in the office of Secretary of Defense--but
has been summarily rejected by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Among the signators
on the original Perle-Solarz letter were the following current Bush Administration
officials: Elliott Abrams (National Security Council), Richard Armitage
(State Department), John Bolton (State Department), Doug Feith (Defense
Department), Fred Ikle (Defense Policy Board), Zalmay Khalilzad (White
House), Peter Rodman (Defense Department), Donald Rumsfeld (Secretary of
Defense), Paul Wolfowitz (Defense Department), David Wurmser (State Department),
and Dov Zakheim (Defense Department).
- President Clinton rejected the February 1998 demand for
war, sending both Netanyahu and Blair into fits of rage.
- On Aug. 6, 1998, Angelo Codevilla, the Washington, D.C.
co-director of IASPS (along with David Wurmser), penned an op ed in the
Wall Street Journal, demanding the freeing of convicted Israeli spy Jonathan
Pollard. Codevilla argued that Pollard had been right to pass U.S. classified
material to Israel, because of the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. Days
later, two members of the Netanyahu cabinet contacted Vice President Al
Gore, demanding Pollard's release.
- After again rejecting the Netanyahu and Blair demands
for war on Iraq in November 1998, President Clinton--under the impeachment
onslaught, led by the Mellon-Scaife-funded apparatus--finally caved in
and authorized Operation Desert Fox in December 1998, as he was returning
on Air Force One from a visit to Israel. But the 70 days of bombardment
did not eliminate the Saddam Hussein regime, and the issue remained dormant
for the next three years ... until Sept. 11, 2001.
- Within moments of the 9/11 attack on Washington and New
York, the same Pollard-linked American networks who had designed the Netanyahu
foreign policy were on the warpath, demanding that President Bush go to
war against Iraq, despite the fact that, to this day, there is no plausible
evidence linking Iraq to the September 2001 irregular warfare attacks.
The Sharon government in Israel instantly declared that the attack had
been ordered by Saddam Hussein, and called for massive retaliation against
- On Sept. 22, 2001, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz
made a feverish pitch for war on Iraq at a Camp David meeting with President
Bush and most of the Cabinet. Wolfowitz had been brought into the inner
circle of George W. Bush a year before the 2000 Presidential elections,
at the initiative of former Secretary of State George Shultz. By 1999,
Wolfowitz and Condi Rice had become co-responsible for pulling together
the Bush campaign foreign policy and national security team, which Ms.
Rice dubbed "The Vulcans." Wolfowitz immediately brought "X
Committee" Israeli agent-of-influence Richard Perle into the inner
sanctum, from where he has been peddling the Netanyahu-Israeli foreign
policy agenda from day one. Perle most recently staged the July 10, 2002
Defense Policy Board session, which demanded the purging of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff of all opponents of the Iraq war, and called for a U.S. military
occupation and takeover of the Saudi oil fields and a total break with
the House of Saud--just as his July 1996 IASPS "Clean Break"
study had proposed.
- This is but the briefest of summaries of the massive
evidence in hand. The current campaign to induce President Bush and the
U.S. Congress into a war with Iraq, one that would surely unleash the "Clash
of Civilizations," is a direct continuation of the Pollard affair.
President Bush is being pressured--from inside his own national security
apparatus--to adopt an Israeli Likud foreign policy! What nation is dictating
policy to the United States? This is a scandalous hoax, far worse than
the Gulf of Tonkin affair of the late 1960s.
- From the point that Perle, Feith, the Wurmsers, et al.
first delivered the "Clean Break" policy to Netanyahu, this crowd
has been obsessed with inducing the United States government to adopt and
implement it. All prior efforts failed, until Sept. 11, 2001 created a
new context for reviving and pushing it--under the guise of the "war
on terrorism." Does this raise questions about the true, mysterious
authors of the 9/11 attack? What are the links between the events of Sept.
11 and the subsequent unabated drive for war against Iraq?
- From Perle and Feith, to others pressing the Netanyahu
scheme from outside the Administration--including Frank Gaffney, Steven
Bryen, and Michael Ledeen--the entire crew were among the leading suspected
Israeli spies, tasking Jonathan Pollard to steal the most precious national
security secrets of the U.S.A., from inside the Reagan-Bush national security
apparatus. They avoided prosecution, and later emerged as "The Vulcans,"
assigned to "teach" President Bush the ins and outs of foreign
and national security policy. Isn't it time that these co-conspirators
joined Jonathan Pollard behind bars? Isn't it time for President Bush to
give these clowns a "September Surprise"?
