- "This scandal isn't a spying scandal. It is the
treason of handing over full control of American foreign policy to the
leader of another country. We have seen how this played out with respect
to the attack on Iraq, and we will see it play out in future attacks on
Iran and Syria. "
- This latest Israeli spy story makes no sense, and may
be part of a set up to protect the real traitors:
- 1. As the story is being reported, the alleged spy for
Israel passed on information concerning American policy towards Iran to
AIPAC, which in turn passed it on to the Israeli government. This makes
so little sense it is almost funny. Why would anyone even consider this
convoluted, and dangerous, route? We have to assume that there is direct
constant communication between Feith's office and Sharon's office. The
fax machines and e-mails must just hum. I'm sure Sharon gets the latest
on all relevant Pentagon matters before anyone else does. Why would Sharon
need a particular American spy when the entire group of neocons in the
Pentagon are his agents?
- 2. The fellow being fingered as the spy is Larry Franklin,
a career analyst and an expert on Iran. He is not a member of the neocon
cabal, and, according to Haaretz, is not even a Jew. What motive would
he have to risk everything to assist Sharon? Money? Why would Sharon pay
money for something he can get for free? The standard Mossad model which
has made Israeli intelligence so powerful is that Jews living in countries
around the world are enlisted to help the cause of the Jewish homeland.
There are a whole bunch of Jewish neocons in the Pentagon who fit this
model, some already under various clouds of suspicion for helping Israel
in the past, who fit right into the Mossad model. Picking the only prominent
non-Jew as the culprit seems almost to be somebody's idea of a sick joke.
If he was paid money to pass materials on to AIPAC, it was to enlist him
as the patsy to take the heat off the real culprits. Although Franklin
was stupid enough to meet with Manucher Ghorbanifar, that doesn't make
him an Israeli spy
- 3. The story appears to be intended to direct attention
away from the real scandal. Sharon didn't need to have someone slip him
America's position on Iran for one simple reason: Sharon writes America's
position on Iran. The neocon cabal has been in direct communication with
Sharon's office from the beginnings of the Bush Administration. This is
with the full blessings of Bush himself, prodded by the Christian Zionists
who want Israel to have full control over American policy in the Middle
East. This scandal isn't a spying scandal. It is the treason of handing
over full control of American foreign policy to the leader of another country.
We have seen how this played out with respect to the attack on Iraq, and
we will see it play out in future attacks on Iran and Syria.
- Franklin may very well have gotten over his head in meeting
with Ghorbanifar, and whatever happened at those meetings may be enough
to force him to take the patsy role. If he has to cop a plea, Bush will
pardon him, and the whole scandal concerning the neocons and Sharon will
neatly disappear. It appears that people are already preparing a Unified
Theory of Bush Administration Malfeasance on Iraq, tying the meetings with
Ghorbanifar with the forged Niger documents, Chalabi, Plame, and the disastrous
attack.. I urge extreme caution in swallowing this, as it may just be another
ruse to protect the traitors who ceded full control of American Middle
East policy to Ariel Sharon.
