Cheney Uncloaks His Frustration With Bush
The CIA and Dick Cheney:
Inside Bush and Cheney’s Final Days:
Friend USAF Lt. Colonel (Ret) Karen Kwiatkowski (who is mentioned in James Bamford’s ‘A Pretext for War’ book as she worked in association with JINSAN Douglas Feith’s Office of Special Plans at the Pentagon before she resigned) interviewed Dr. Sniegoski about ‘The Transparent Cabal’:

A “Letter” was formulated by AIPAC..(no big shocker)….very little about this shameful letter outside of JTA and Haaretz…AIPAC-backed letter garners 71 signatures out of 100 senators.
August 11, 2009
WASHINGTON (JTA) — Seventy-one U.S. Senators signed an AIPAC-backed letter to President Obama supporting his effort to encourage Arab states to normalize relations with Israel. This shows the iron control of AIPAC over the senators we have elected.
The letter, circulated by Sens. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) and James Risch (R-Idaho), says that “over the past few months Israel has taken concrete measures to reaffirm its commitment to advancing the peace process,” such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu backing a two-state solution and removing roadblocks and other measures to “improve the daily lives of Palestinians.” Gotta acknowledge that Israel has been taking “concrete” measures. (concrete WALLS, concrete barriers, concrete housing developments.
“We encourage Arab leaders to take similar tangible steps to demonstrate their commitment to the peace process,” the senators write. “Such steps could include ending the Arab League boycott of Israel, meeting openly with Israeli officials, establishing open trade relations with Israel, issuing visas to Israeli citizens, and inviting Israelis to participate in academic and professional conferences and sporting events. We also believe that Arab states must immediately and permanently end official propaganda campaigns which demonize Israel and Jews.”
Americans for Peace Now and other left-wing Jewish groups, including J Street and Brit Tzedek Shalom, had urged senators not to sign the letter unless the language was amended to include mention of steps that all parties in the Middle East need to take toward peace — especially Israel’s need to stop settlement construction.
APN said that “the subtext of the letter directly contradicts and undermines the efforts” of the Obama administration “to promote Middle East peace” and “sends a message that the signers consider settlements more important than peace.”
Only six of the 13 Jewish senators signed the missive — Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Joe Lieberman (I-Ct.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).
Ralph Nader tells it like it is about John McCain:
[Thanks to supporter David Strader, who says:]
2008 Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader discusses John McCain and
Israel’s bombing in the U.S.S. Liberty. From The Forum Auditorium,
Cleveland, Ohio, October 30, 2008.
I had never seen this. I knew about McCain’s father’s role in the
coverup and junior’s refusal to investigate it. That, along with his
betrayal of veterans concerning their healthcare is why I would not
vote for McCain. If you are able to watch this video and believe that
it is accurate, I think it would be something to include in the
newsletter for all to see.
[You’d better believe it, David! I had never seen this, either, I
suspect many others haven’t also. It’s too bad that the American
media didn’t pick up on this speech by Ralph Nader who damned sure
knows what he is talking about when he speaks of the USS Liberty. The
outstanding YOUTUBE video file below (by Karen Kilroy) runs about 8
minutes and is sure worth your time! I wish every American could see
Friend General (Ret) James David is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby (AIPAC and similar) on the US political system and media:
General David wrote:
My letter published in today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution after going through the normal censors and chopping block, insuring criticism of Israel is kept to a minimum.

U.S. two-faced with Israelis, Palestinians
It’s bad enough that the Israelis continue to build illegal Jewish settlements on confiscated Palestinian land, but we have learned that they recently evicted more than 50 people from their homes to move in Jewish settlers, after a court order in the settlers’ favor (“Palestinians evicted, Israelis in,” News, Aug. 3). Instead of getting tough with Israel, the United States continues to provide more foreign aid to the Jewish state than any other nation. We talk about equal treatment for all races, but look at what we actually practice. We have one standard for the treatment of Israelis. We have a second standard for the treatment of Palestinians. America has reasonably moral policies at home, but our foreign policy is as corrupt, hypocritical and violent as any of the dictatorships we love to look down upon, and occasionally bomb.
