James Morris and FBI Whistleblower Coleen Rowley about coming war with Iran


Israel and the March to War, Tikum Olam, Richard Silverstein, October 14, 2011:  “I don’t know if Fishman, Oren, Caspit, Dagan and others are right about the oncoming war.  But their views are too sobering NOT to take seriously.  I would rather be wrong and have spoken out, than be right and not have said anything for fear of being wrong.”


Haaretz: Panetta Arrives in Israel for ‘Urgent Consultations’ on Iran, Tikun Olam, Richard Silverman, Oct. 3, 2011:

 I have been writing for more than two years about the possibility of an Israeli war against Iran (make no mistake, an Israeli attack on Iran will not be just a single discrete operation, but involve an ongoing, and regional war).  And I’ve never felt closer to the idea it was going to happen.  If it does, all of the political developments that led up to it should be fodder for an international studies colloquim on national conflicts, how they start, how to avoid them, and how needless and futile they are.
Today, Haaretz blares a headline (Hebrew print edition only) for a story by Amos Harel:
Second Meeting in Two Weeks:
U.S. Defense Secretary Arrives for Urgent Consultation on Iran
This is no ordinary meeting.  As Harel’s story notes, it’s the second meeting between Panetta and Barak in two weeks.  His first was in Washington DC, during which he also met with the new CIA director, David Petraeus.  Tomorrow’s meeting threatens to be a make or break one, during which Israel will argue for an attack and Panetta will (hopefully) attempt to dissuade them:
Barak and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are believed to favor an Israeli strike on Iran, while the Obama administration has gone out of its way to voice its objection to such a move. Panetta’s predecessor at the Defense Department, Robert Gates, has repeatedly reiterated his objection to an Israeli strike, claiming that such a move would have severe consequences.
Admiral Michael Mullen, who last month stepped down from his role as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, has passed numerous messages to Netanyahu, clarifying that Israel does not have a “green light” to attack Iran.
Lately the administration has refrained from direct remarks about a possible Israeli strike.
Gee, why do you think that is?  Because Obama, with falling popularity ratings especially within the Jewish community, doesn’t feel strong enough to step in front of this oncoming train (wreck).  And possibly because he doesn’t oppose it nearly as strongly as he should.  Obama’s seen his poll numbers rise with his lethal approach to alleged anti-American terrorists.  Part of him at the least, must believe that unleashing Israel on the Iranians can’t hurt him with security-hawk voters.  Of course, Obama forgets or doesn’t care about the impact it will have on his progressive-liberal base.  He either takes them for granted, believes they have nowhere else to go, or thinks they’re insignificant.
I’ve been reporting here on numerous Israeli media sources who’ve noted the increasing apocalyptical rhetoric from both Ehud Barak and Bibi Netanyahu concerning the Iranian threat to Israel.  Never have a I read so many Israeli commentators reporting virtually the same portraits of leaders ready for war, and at the same time.  It’s ominous, I tell you.
Yaakov Katz, who is a veteran hawkish military correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, also reports today:
One of the last times Leon Panetta came to Israel was to stop the country from attacking Iran.  It was May 2009 and the then-CIA chief was reportedly sent to Israel to ensure the new government in Jerusalem was not planning unilateral action against the Islamic Republic.
…On Monday, Panetta will again arrive in Israel, although this time as secretary of defense…When he sits down for talks with Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Iran will again feature prominently on the agenda.  What he will find, though, might not be to his liking.
According to some estimations, the chances of an Israeli strike against Iran might be growing…Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan’s recent warning that with him, former IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi and former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) chief Yuval Diskin no longer in office there is no one left capable of standing up to Barak and Netanyahu if they should decide to take action.
…Panetta will likely use this visit to try and [sic] ease Israeli concerns and tensions…He will also look for assurances that Israel will not surprise America.
Katz claims that Israel hasn’t yet given up on the efficacy of sanctions.  But U.S. defense secretaries don’t meet their Israeli counterparts twice in two weeks and fly half way around the world in order to discuss sanctions.  I smell war in the air.  God, I hope I’m wrong.  So many will die if I’m not, and needlessly so.

The fact that you continue to talk about my dead father in law is incredible. PLEASE! I don’t care about this issue. Do you want me to email garbage about your mother and father. Really James. Use your manners. My father in law was a 4 star Admiral of great distinction and a fine man. I loved him dearly. Please leave my family alone. I realize you hate my husband Your perogitive. But my dead father inlaw is off limits and in very poor taste. James i have asked and begged a thousand different ways. If you want your book…stop.

As soon as I send you the youtube (mentioned in the prior email send below) which includes my call about John and his Father’s part in the cover-up of the USS Liberty I won’t contact you again. I just want you to receive the youtube from me first after it is finished soon rather than have someone else send it to you after seeing it on the Web somewhere. It is going to be powerful and will be sent to John’s office as well as to other Congressional reps demanding that they stop covering up for Israel’s murder of American sailors and marines and investigate the USS Liberty to take testimony from the survivors while they are still alive. I just saw last night (via the following URL from a Coronado newspaper) that Captain Boston’s wife passed away earlier this year which saddened me:

Again, I won’t contact you again after I send you that youtube link in the next email. It will be added to the youtubes linked in the right margin of as well. I do hope you go through (at your convenience) what is linked and posted at the following URL since John and his admiral Father were/have been involved with the USS Liberty cover-up which is a disgrace:

James and John Scott on FOX NEWS on USS Liberty attack (and cover-up)

Incredible how John and his Father covered up the Israeli murder of American sailors and marines after reading what Liberty survivor Lloyd Painter (whom I am in touch with as well) wrote via the following declaration (especially at the end):

Read the following by Lloyd Painter who was an officer on the USS Liberty and saw the Israelis machine gun the Liberty’s liferafts but such testimony was left out of the sham Naval Court of Inquiry which John and his Father stand/stood behind for Israel and the Israel firsters in the USA (will be interesting if you have your son continue the cover-up or seek justice for the crew while at least some of them are still alive): exhibit%252010.pdf

Following comment shows in comments section at botom of above article:

WHY McCain doesn’t want to talk: –

There are Two Main reasons why Senator John McCain wants to keep the attack on the USS Liberty buried.

1-  McCain’s Father (Admiral John S McCain) was in charge of US Naval Forces in Europe at the time of the attack and Admiral McCain was involved in the COVER-UP, of the attack on the Liberty.

2-  In America, huge sums of Money are needed to Win Elections at the National Level.  (Congress, President)   Wealthy American Jews give huge sums of Cash to Pro-Israeli Congressmen and Congresswomen.   Anyone deemed to be “anti-Israel” is cut off from Funding.  As a result, it’s very hard to Win an Election at the National Level, unless the candidate is a full time stooge to the powerful US Israeli Lobby.  (AIPAC)
