The Liberty, The Lobby
& A Long List Of Lackeys

By Douglas Herman

What do John McCain, Hillary Clinton, George Bush and LBJ all have in common? Lackeys, every one, beholden to a tiny country, although NONE were born there.  That tiny country, Israel, which is smaller than San Bernardino County, California, sways American policy through a powerful and intimidating system of lobbyists. These lobbies influence US elected officials (lackeys) sent to Washington by naïve American voters, ostensibly to represent America but, in actuality, serving dual loyalties.
What do Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Jimmy Carter, Diane Feinstein and Robert McNamara all have in common? They unduly heed those lobbies---AIPAC, JINSA, ADL---and represent the interests of Israel, first and foremost, and those of America secondly.
When did this all begin, you ask? The pivotal moment might have begun nearly 40 years ago, perhaps longer. But the overt act that best reveals how US Presidents, Senators and Congressmen grovel and subjugate themselves before the wishes of the powerful elites of Israeli (many of them former terrorists), occurred on June 8, 1967.
On that day the lightly-armed, Navy Intelligence ship, USS Liberty, suffered an intense, unprovoked bombardment while lingering off the Sinai Peninsula. After circling the clearly marked ship for hours that morning, Israeli fighter jets and patrol boats bombed, strafed, napalmed and finally torpedoed the Liberty, killing 34 and wounding 174.
Still the Liberty would not sink.
Pleas for help from the stricken ship finally reached the nearby aircraft carrier, USS America. F-4 fighter planes catapulted from the deck to protect the burning ship.
According to Jeffrey St Clair, author of Grand Theft Pentagon, "Defense Secretary Robert McNamara became irate and ordered the jets to return: 'Tell the Sixth Fleet to get those aircraft back immediately!' McNamara's injunction was reiterated in saltier terms by Admiral David L. McDonald, the chief of Naval Operations: 'You get those fucking airplanes back on deck, and you get them back down.' The planes turned around. And the attack on the Liberty continued."
The defenseless Liberty endured the bombardment for two hours and, finally, the strafing of her life rafts.  While gutless American admirals abandoned their fellow Navy ship, a Russian ship finally answered her distress signal.
After the attack, the Pentagon and White House refused to find Israel culpable, instead threatening the shocked sailors. "As the wounded were being evacuated, an officer with the Office of Naval Intelligence instructed the men not to talk about their ordeal with the press," wrote St Clair.
Admiral McCain, father of the current senator, following orders like a good little careerist, conducted a sham hearing while abandoned his fellow Navy men to the interests of Israel. A 700 page Navy report concluded the two-hour attack had been a case of mistaken identity, although the Liberty flew a huge flag and carried her name and number prominently on bow and stern.
"The inquiry was headed by Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd. Kidd didn't have a free hand. He'd been instructed by Vice-Admiral McCain (the Senator's father) to limit the damage to the Pentagon and to protect the reputation of Israel."
Within a year the Pentagon and Israel enjoyed convivial relations and billions in military armaments flowed into friendly Israel.
Today, 40 years later, America, more than ever, cowers and grovels like a trained bear. We smash up one Middle East country and then another, sacrificing men, money and materials, making enemies as we go, serving the designs of greater Zion. As Henry Kissinger remarked:  "Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy."
Today those dumb, stupid animals breath in the radioactive toxins while doing the dirty work, ruining one nation while wrecking another, all for the benefit of which nuclear stronghold?
"Despite the fact that Israel has been developing nuclear material since 1958, the country has never formally acknowledged it has a nuclear arsenal. Analysts have estimated, however, that Israel is the fifth-largest nuclear power on the planet with much of its delivery systems technology funded by US taxpayers," wrote James C Moore.
How then does the moral and economic bankruptcy of America serve the average US citizen? How does the poisoning of half a million US servicemen benefit our nation? By doing the dirty work for fascist Israel, by wrecking Afghanistan, Iraq and (perhaps soon) Iran, the lackey leaders in Washington, who claim to represent American citizens, can rightly be seen as double-agents.
The Paul Wolfowitzes and Daniel Pipes and Richard Perles can be almost (But not quite) forgiven, as Jews, for blind allegiance to Israel and the mighty lobbies. But what sorry excuses will the Clintons, Carters, Bushes, Cheneys, McCains, Kerrys, Rumsfelds, Pelosis, McNamaras and Johnsons---not to mention nearly every member of the US House of Representatives----offer for doing the bidding of Israel?
No greater traitor exists who sends patriotic soldiers out to wreck other countries, while ruining and bankrupting his own, under the guise of national security. Even more evil still, to send US soldiers out to poison themselves while spreading toxins among an innocent and occupied populace, all while bankrupting both nations and enriching a few individuals.
When President Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara abandoned the crew of the USS Liberty to her fate, for the sake of some tiny country guilty of a massacre, they shamed an entire nation. They felt no loyalty to the US serviceman but, as cowards do, they lied and subverted justice.
Not surprisingly, many historians today consider LBJ and McNamara no better than war criminals. The same is true for Clinton and Kissinger, Rumsfeld and Bush. Disloyal to the average US serviceman and citizen, they cannot help but be viewed as war criminals, craven cowards, mini-Machiavellis, beholden to a tough lobby and a tiny nation.
If that lobby did not exist, the insignificant aspirations of Iran (The Mouse That Roared) would not be featured on the front pages of every US newspaper and every major news channel. Not a single American would care what they did, whether they wanted a bomb or a power plant.
Make no mistake: The USS Liberty happened exactly as the crew described it.  Today, America is the Liberty, the ship of state itself, and the same sort of cowardice and betrayal has occurred, the betrayal of servicemen and women, of citizens and taxpayers, of every trusting person who expects their leaders to serve and protect them. Unfortunately they are betrayed instead and America increasingly ruined.
Footnote:  Some historians believe the reason the USS Liberty was attacked was that Israeli Defense Forces feared the spy ship was listening as the IDF massacred 1000 prisoners. Others feel that Defense Minister, Moshe Dayan, ordered the ship sunk, hoping to blame the Egyptians---and thus cause an "Operation Northwoods" or 9-11 false-flag terror incident. Read more below.
