I'm not sure what you mean Dominio, however one should not worry if his/her life is in the safe hands of Jesus Christ, RIGHT? You know the old saying QUE SERA, QUE SERA, what will happen, will happen. :-?

Yes, I mean by a NUKE or VIRUS outbreak, or something horrific like 9-11, "they" need this to blame Iran, and then start WW3.

01-11-2007, 01:45 PM
So, you agree that WWIII is their agenda?

Isn't this Dr. Makow's opinion, as well?

Basically, what you're saying is that the US might get hit by a VIRUS and they'll blame IRAN. We might get hit by a NUKE and they'll blame IRAN. Or, something more catastrophic than 911 and they'll blame IRAN.

Well, yes, this is their MO.

Just as they blamed Al Qaeda for 911.

BA, I think your misunderstanding my criticism of Dr. Makow, he always seems to lay the blame on the "ILLUMINAT." All evidence shows that the supporters of ISRAEL (ZIONIST) are the ones behind all the terrorist plots, they and they alone seek to create a NWO where Israel will be the WORLD CAPITAL and a Jewish Anti-Christ will reign over humanity, it's not Russians, Chinese, Muslim Arabs, Africans, Mexicans ect. The Illuminati have their assigned role in the NWO, but for the most part its ZIONIST who are currently bringing forth worldwide destruction. 9-11 reeks of their work and they have a long HISTORY of such atrocities. I hope you don't think that people who QUESTION ZIONISM are "Anti- Semites" cause that is just TRAGIC.

P.S. 90% of the time I post here, I leave websites and links to articles and other info so the reader can discern the TRUTH. :-o

01-11-2007, 03:39 PM
Me thinks it is you who is confused.

Who do you think comprises a large percentage of the Illuminati?

Maybe you should go to Makow's site and read some articles that he has written regarding Zionism.

Oh, Ok, now I understand your logic, you feel that the Illuminati, and it's vast conspiratorial network of subversives along with ZIONISM are all part of the "Big Picture." this is true, I guess I just FOCUS more than most people on the ZIONISM part of the World Conspiracy. I also agree that a huge number of organizations outside of just ZIONISM are destroying humanity, but really when I think about it more, it really is GOD'S adversary Satan that controls these peoples minds and souls. This Demonic force is REAL!

P.S. And yes, I've read all your post's, I enjoy them. :-)

Yes, a conspiratorial network with a Jewish cabal.

I think it best that WE not try to articulate exactly who is responsible for what. This only causes confusion.

As far as anti-semitism is concerned, we know they have used this to their advantage in that to blame a JEW for anything is to be of this name.

However, they exploited the JEWS and used them for this reason. They killed, tortured and gased their own kind in WWII. They funded Hitler's so-called war. How dare we we criticize a Jew when they have been persecuted most of their lives.

As long as WE know that the network comprises and employs people from all walks of life. All religions, all races, but that the Banksters, the Jewish cabal play a very large role in the events they orchestrate around the globe.

You can definitely say that those who comprise the PNAC are tools for the network. Skull and Bones members, freemasonry, CFR, etc.

You can say that our current President is one of their puppets.

And, you can definitely say that Cheney is one of the men behind the shadows who probably has more influence than the President.

So, they conduct a "secret" operation/raid of an Iranian office, confiscating computers, etc.

What does this tell us?

This tells me that they are either attempting to get rid of evidence or plant evidence.

As soon as the Iranian leader was placed into power, he began inticing the US. This tells me he is a puppet "dictator" and doing his job.

This was perfect timing as it must always be.

He is setting the stage for them.

01-11-2007, 05:36 PM
Yes, WWIII is their objective to establishing a ONE WORLD ORDER. Please note, that this is how it was referred to. I do not remember it as the NEW WORLD ORDER.

Tensions are increasingly high between America and her enemies. She is an open sore for a terrorist attack of their liking because they have paved the road for this.

I have posted a link below with a report from Negroponte.

What Negroponte does in this report is advise US of the dangers we face. They are very good at predicting the future because they know the future for us before it occurs.

This report outlines how America is now a TARGET because of her actions by the "satanic pigs" who control her.

This, of course, is their desire.

I find it amazing how they can write a report with so much intelligence, BUT how they are conveniently inept in finding bin Laden, but very capable of fanning the flames.

My position on IRAQ is the U.S. needs to get out slowly (1-3 years) secure the OIL FIELDS, Lets make this clear, OIL, OIL, OIL, is our PRIMARY reason there. (along with the ZIONIST GREATER ISRAEL.) We need to, like we always done, RAPE AND PILLAGE their NATURAL RESOURCES, (even though we have PLENTY of SOURCES in our own backyard) Don't give me your SAD SACK CRAP about HUMAN CRUELTY, YOU AS AMERICANS ARE ALL GUILTY OF GENICIDE! The ABSURD lifestyle of everything NOW for a bargain, Think about it, WE AMERICANS are ABUSERS of the WORLD RESOURCES, NOW, do we deserve to be ANNHILATED by the BLOODY 3RD WORLD, which we "they" created?


I only bring this "SENSITIVE" topic up because I know what, and HOW the BLOODY THIRD WORLD revenge is happening, Right before your eyes, I've posted on this TOPIC many times, (ASYMETRIC WARFARE) so don't WHINE to me when the THIRD WORLDERS come to slash your throat.

For some reason, you think this forum exists for your sole purpose of arguing with whomever about the Zionist role within the Illuminati.

It is a "fabricated" argument for whatever agenda you thought it would serve.

Although, you previously began a thread stating that Dr. Makow denies Zionist involvement, and I suggested you read his homepage, you now post a link for me to prove that he does not deny the Zionist involvement.

Although, I have previously stated that the Illuminati are comprised of Zionists (the upper class Jew, so to speak, as they would say), you continue to state that I deny this.

Your purposeful misquoting of me is to bolster an argument that does not exist.

WE ALL KNOW about the Zionist role to a certain degree. However, the root of the problem does not only exist within one group. If you were to identify every Zionist who was involved, the problem would still be THERE!!!

I don't think your memory is exemplary inasmuch as you stated I had made a reference to an East Coast Tsunami which I did not.

Even if I made a remark about an East Coast Tsunami, this would not prove that the East Coast is my home.

So, how is it you know that I'm on EST?

Sounds like you're chomping at the bit for an IRAN invasion.

Notice here that Putin of Russia, and Chavez meet on the 28th of june, to discuss military arms sales...Read below

NOTE: Chavez refers to Putin as "brother."
Amid media speculation that Chavez would sign a weapons deal while in Russia, Putin said bilateral relations were developing and praised the opening earlier Thursday of a Venezuelan cultural center named for the South American revolutionary hero Simon Bolivar. Chavez thanked Putin for his hospitality, calling him “brother” at one point.

He has expressed interest in purchasing Russian submarines, which could add to U.S. concerns about Venezuela’s military spending. Caracas has purchased some $3 billion worth of arms from Russia.






http://www.kansascity.com/news/world/story/169768.html

Then Notice here that Putin and President Bush talk about disarming Iran, both countries are responsible for arming Iran in the first place.

Putin and Russia will stand aside as America destroys Iran, Putin is a two/headed snake. read below..

Hey RedRat,

It is The United States of America who is provoking war with Iran by stating that they have "nuclear" weapons that pose a threat to the West.

Of course, I'm not saying those accusations are true.

They're all a build-up to World War III.

Greenspan and Henry Kissinger have stated that they believe the war in Iraq and the imminent war in Iran is about OIL and, Kissinger, that Iran poses no threat of nuclear attack against the United States.

Conditioning people to believe that they are protecting the world's energy dependence on these countries through violence by inciting WAR instead of PEACE.

Whether the man is a puppet for the NWO or not, I don't give a damn what he has to say nor do I give a damn what bin laden has to say to the American people.

I would prefer to HEAR the voices of those in the United State's Congress who aren't puppets, if there are any, rather than a leader from a country who supposedly poses a "nuclear" threat to the West.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner met Friday with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice amid U.S. expressions of satisfaction that his government is taking a harder line on Iran's nuclear program.

Condoleezza Rise wears the color Red, which in Illuminati symbolism represents the planet Mars, The God of War, Military Power. It also represents Socialist movements, especially “communism” . It also represents, “confidence” , & it is the “color of blood” .

Look at the pictures, she is wearing Red, & look at her handshake, what seems to be an Illuminati handshake.

French Official Backs Hard Line On Iran
"A stronger Europe is absolutely not incompatible with the trans-Atlantic relationship," "On Sunday, Kouchner sparked an outcry at home and abroad by saying the world should be prepared for "the worst" over Iran's nuclear program — or "war.""

Iran threatens missile attacks on US targets - Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/09/18/wiran118.xml)


what really happened to those nukes? who now has the power?



The Strange Death Of Todd Blue (http://www.rense.com/general78/strange.htm)



I wonder where those weapons are being stored for delivery to Iran? They are still missing.


Air Force refused to fly weapons to Middle East theater
By Wayne Madsen ? WMR Sept. 24, 2007

WMR has learned from U.S. and foreign intelligence sources that the B-52 transporting six stealth AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles, each armed with a W-80-1 nuclear warhead, on August 30, were destined for the Middle East via Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

However, elements of the Air Force, supported by U.S. intelligence agency personnel, successfully revealed the ultimate destination of the nuclear weapons and the mission was aborted due to internal opposition within the Air Force and U.S. Intelligence Community. Yesterday, the Washington Post attempted to explain away the fact that America's nuclear command and control system broke down in an unprecedented manner by reporting that it was the result of "security failures at multiple levels." It is now apparent that the command and control breakdown, reported as a BENT SPEAR incident to the Secretary of Defense and White House, was not the result of a command and control chain-of-command "failures" but the result of a revolt and push back by various echelons within the Air Force and intelligence agencies against a planned U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear and conventional weapons.

The Washington Post story on BENT SPEAR may have actually been an effort in damage control by the Bush administration. WMR has been informed by a knowledgeable source that one of the six nuclear-armed cruise missiles was, and may still be, unaccounted for. In that case, the nuclear reporting incident would have gone far beyond BENT SPEAR to a National Command Authority alert known as EMPTY QUIVER, with the special classification of PINNACLE.

Just as this report was being prepared, Newsweek reported that Vice President Dick Cheney's recently-departed Middle East adviser, David Wurmser, told a small group of advisers some months ago that Cheney had considered asking Israel to launch a missile attack on the Iranian nuclear site at Natanz. Cheney reasoned that after an Iranian retaliatory strike, the United States would have ample reasons to launch its own massive attack on Iran. However, plans for Israel to attack Iran directly were altered to an Israeli attack on a supposed Syrian-Iranian-North Korean nuclear installation in northern Syria.

WMR has learned that a U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear and conventional weapons was scheduled to coincide with Israel's September 6 air attack on a reputed Syrian nuclear facility in Dayr az-Zwar, near the village of Tal Abyad, in northern Syria, near the Turkish border. Israel's attack, code named OPERATION ORCHARD, was to provide a reason for the U.S. to strike Iran. The neo-conservative propaganda onslaught was to cite the cooperation of the George Bush's three remaining "Axis of Evil" states ? Syria, Iran, and North Korea ? to justify a sustained Israeli attack on Syria and a massive U.S. military attack on Iran.

WMR has learned from military sources on both sides of the Atlantic that there was a definite connection between Israel's OPERATION ORCHARD and BENT SPEAR involving the B-52 that flew the six nuclear-armed cruise missiles from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale. There is also a connection between these two events as the Pentagon's highly-classified PROJECT CHECKMATE, a compartmented U.S. Air Force program that has been working on an attack plan for Iran since June 2007, around the same time that Cheney was working on the joint Israeli-U.S. attack scenario on Iran.

PROJECT CHECKMATE was leaked in an article by military analyst Eric Margolis in the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper, the Times of London, is a program that involves over two dozen Air Force officers and is headed by Brig. Gen. Lawrence Stutzriem and his chief civilian adviser, Dr. Lani Kass, a former Israeli military intelligence officer who, astoundingly, is now involved in planning a joint U.S.-Israeli massive military attack on Iran that involves a "decapitating" blow on Iran by hitting between three to four thousand targets in the country. Stutzriem and Kass report directly to the Air Force Chief of Staff, General Michael Moseley, who has also been charged with preparing a report on the B-52/nuclear weapons incident.

Kass' area of speciality is cyber-warfare, which includes ensuring "information blockades," such as that imposed by the Israeli government on the Israeli media regarding the air attack on the alleged Syrian "nuclear installation." British intelligence sources have reported that the Israeli attack on Syria was a "true flag" attack originally designed to foreshadow a U.S. attack on Iran. After the U.S. Air Force push back against transporting the six cruise nuclear-armed AGM-129s to the Middle East, Israel went ahead with its attack on Syria in order to help ratchet up tensions between Washington on one side and Damascus, Tehran, and Pyongyang on the other.

The other part of CHECKMATE's brief is to ensure that a media "perception management" is waged against Syria, Iran, and North Korea. This involves articles such as that which appeared with Joby Warrick's and Walter Pincus' bylines in yesterdays Washington Post. The article, titled "The Saga of a Bent Spear," quotes a number of seasoned Air Force nuclear weapons experts as saying that such an incident is unprecedented in the history of the Air Force. For example, Retired Air Force General Eugene Habiger, the former chief of the U.S. Strategic Command, said he has been in the "nuclear business" since 1966 and has never been aware of an incident "more disturbing."

Command and control breakdowns involving U.S. nuclear weapons are unprecedented, except for that fact that the U.S. military is now waging an internal war against neo-cons who are embedded in the U.S. government and military chain of command who are intent on using nuclear weapons in a pre-emptive war with Iran.

CHECKMATE and OPERATION ORCHARD would have provided the cover for a pre-emptive U.S. and Israeli attack on Iran had it not been for BENT SPEAR involving the B-52. In on the plan to launch a pre-emptive attack on Iran involving nuclear weapons were, according to our sources, Cheney, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley; members of the CHECKMATE team at the Pentagon, who have close connections to Israeli intelligence and pro-Israeli think tanks in Washington, including the Hudson Institute; British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, a political adviser to Tony Blair prior to becoming a Member of Parliament; Israeli political leaders like Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu; and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, who did his part last week to ratchet up tensions with Iran by suggesting that war with Iran was a probability. Kouchner retracted his statement after the U.S. plans for Iran were delayed.

Although the Air Force tried to keep the B-52 nuclear incident from the media, anonymous Air Force personnel leaked the story to Military Times on September 5, the day before the Israelis attacked the alleged nuclear installation in Syria and the day planned for the simultaneous U.S. attack on Iran. The leaking of classified information on U.S. nuclear weapons disposition or movement to the media, is, itself, unprecedented. Air Force regulations require the sending of classified BEELINE reports to higher Air Force authorities on the disclosure of classified Air Force information to the media.

In another highly unusual move, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has asked an outside inquiry board to look into BENT SPEAR, even before the Air Force has completed its own investigation, a virtual vote of no confidence in the official investigation being conducted by Major General Douglas Raaberg, chief of air and space operations at the Air Combat Command.

Gates asked former Air Force Chief of Staff, retired General Larry Welch, to lead a Defense Science Board task force that will also look into the BENT SPEAR incident. The official Air Force investigation has reportedly been delayed for unknown reasons. Welch is President and CEO of the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA), a federally-funded research contractor that operates three research centers, including one for Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President and another for the National Security Agency. One of the board members of IDA is Dr. Suzanne H. Woolsey of the Paladin Capital Group and wife of former CIA director and arch-neocon James Woolsey. WMR has learned that neither the upper echelons of the State Department nor the British Foreign Office were privy to OPERATION ORCHARD, although Hadley briefed President Bush on Israeli spy satellite intelligence that showed the Syrian installation was a joint nuclear facility built with North Korean and Iranian assistance. However, it is puzzling why Hadley would rely on Israeli imagery intelligence (IMINT) from its OFEK (Horizon) 7 satellite when considering that U.S. IMINT satellites have greater capabilities.

The Air Force's "information warfare" campaign against media reports on CHECKMATE and OPERATION ORCHARD also affected international reporting of the recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution asking Israel to place its nuclear weapons program under IAEA controls, similar to those that the United States wants imposed on Iran and North Korea. The resolution also called for a nuclear-free zone throughout the Middle East. The IAEA's resolution, titled "Application of IAEA Safeguards in the Middle East," was passed by the 144-member IAEA General Meeting on September 20 by a vote of 53 to 2, with 47 abstentions. The only two countries to vote against were Israel and the United States. However, the story carried from the IAEA meeting in Vienna by Reuters, the Associated Press, and Agence France Press, was that i

Ahmadinejad to an American mother: Iran has NO intention to attack the US
Quote

A Reply to an American Mother`s Message 2007/03/16
Mr. President
I am writing you this letter as a mother who her son was sent to Iraq forcibly and has been taken away from her for ever.
You may know it or not that most of the Americans do not like Bush. He is (?.). We do not recognize him as our president. He entered the white house by cheating. He is not a legitimate president. Even a great number of American mothers who their sons were not sent to Iraq, are agree with me. They know Bush as (?.).
Mr. President! As much as we hate war, we hate Bush and his gangs! I want you know that if you intend to attack U.S., most of the people are like me here. We can`t stop his stupid acts for now, but I am writing this letter, because I know you as a pious and logical man.
I am not scared of Bush and his gangs or his security forces, but since I do not want them to interrupt my battle and my fellow Americans` struggle against this administration, please keep my name and identification anonymous.
With best wishes

In the Name of Almighty God, the All-knowing, the Most Lovingly Compassionate

Venerable mother
Greetings

First of all, I apologize for the delay of answering your question. This is due to my heavy schedules. So far, I have received many letters ? with the same type of messages - such as yours.
If your son opposed to go to Iraq and impose pressure on the people of that region, and then was forcibly taken there, certainly Almighty God would help him. And those who have forced your beloved son to go to the war are responsible for his blood and the bloodshed that they have caused. They should answer Almighty God in the Day of Judgment.
In regard to statement you have made, since I did not want my reply lead to any problem for you, did not send it through e-mail, because if some agents are getting into private life of the American citizens and eligitimatley control them, may create problem for you. Instead, I decided to post the reply on the web log that those who may have the same views such as yours, get the answer.

Respectable lady
We respect all people of the world- including the American people. We think highly of all human`s life, dignity, reputation and also their properties. Our religion ? Islam- does not allow us to disturb the peace and tranquility of human beings. Even those Iranian mothers who have lost their children due to American atrocities in Iran or those children, who their parents have been martyred, do not concur that the American people be immolated for the wrong-headedness and arrogance of their Statesmen. Even the Iranian girls and boys, who have lost all their family members in U.S. warship attack against Iranian passenger airplane in Persian Gulf, do not assent that Iran initiates any war. For eight years, we defended ourselves against all-out invasion of Saddam who was supported by the world powers. And any type of weaponry, intelligence and supplies that he needed was provided to him immediately. Our people were not even safe from Saddam`s chemical bombs. When the green light was given to Saddam by the big powers - including U.S. government - he tested the most lethal chemical weapons ? produced in the west ? on the innocent people of Iran.

What benefit do you think Saddam and his masters in United States of America and some other countries drew from the imposition of the eight year war on Iran? Nothing! Even a square foot of our land was not kept occupied by Saddam`s forces. They could achieve none of their illegitimate goals and wills. Our youths with the strength of their faith, defended their own land and astonished the world.

Dear sister
Of course, we too hate war ? as you do. Certainly, we are not panic-stricken of a defensive war, but we believe there are many diplomatic and peaceful ways and approaches to intercept paranoidal bullying and expansion policies and practices of U.S., Zionist usurper regime ? the occupier of Palestine ? and Britain. I assure you that Iran would not initiate any war! Unfortunately today, the entire world is somehow afoul of some hostile powers and politicians that are non-edified, power greed and warmongers. Consequently, thousands of innocent human lives are being lost every day and many mothers mourn their beloved children. The greed of the aforementioned politicians for wealth and power is unbounded. The atmosphere of threat and intimidation has made the life unpleasant and miserable for every human being of different nations. Unfortunately, you are not the only one who is tormented and aggrieved from the egoistic politicians with their egotistic mentality. Everyday in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, and almost everywhere in the world, many fathers and mothers mourn their children and have become grief-stricken. Their outcry would not go beyond the high wall of powers - that based on wealth and weapons.

Tormented mother
I hope the people of the world bring to book these egoistic and bellicose politicians ? who have immolated everything for the interest of a few companies and certain groups. I am confident that you and American people would not trust the pre-fabricated lies and complicated, poisonous propagandas that are made and broadcasted by the inhumane, aggressive and capitalist networks. And you do search and try to find out about the truth. Perhaps as you know - so many times - the Zionist media and those that are related to power clans, have even distorted my own words, and have told the people of the world, bunch of untruth regarding my country as well. I know that the environment you live in ? even though there are many large networks of media that are affiliated to certain groups - to discover the truth is very difficult, yet, to uncover and expose the truth, for the intelligent people of that region does not sound impossible.

I am sorry to say that the American people are kept in an absolute censorship concerning the outside world by their government.

I am certain if the American people know where and on what, their tax money are spent, even the strong supporters of the government would not stand it and rush to the street to show their opposition in regard to that issue. What you can do is - to break the aura of deception and fabrication which has been created by the media affiliated to the government - and try your best to uncover and reveal the truth.

Esteemed mother
I hope that the world we live in would never see the darkness of a war and the people of the world can bring their call for peace across to the warmongers who have appeared as statesmen and call themselves as the guardians of others. I hope by early withdrawal of U.S. occupied forces from Iraq, peace, tranquility and fraternity would come back to the region. I also hope that the people of Iraq be able to live in peace and harmony next to their families and continue their own lifestyle. And finally, I hope that the American youth live next to their families and serve their own country.

If you rely on Almighty God, you would succeed.

I don't know about everybody, but, I get the distinct feeling that something has got to give. I just read that Iran put on a Parade of some sort, in that parade Iran mocked the U.S. and Israel with some Ant-Zionist floats and other things Anti-American. This may seem like nothing to you all, but, when you consider that Iran Russia China India etc.. now have the ability to literally destroy the U.S. It's no wonder the Zionist are behind the eight ball,(so to speak) they know there World Empire is crumbling around them fast, They, though hold the ultimate (ace up there sleeve)and that is the world's largest Gold Supply,(all of Americas STOLEN TREASURE) of course, and not to mention the world's largest Arsenal of High Tech Weaponry.

Something has got to give, World Government, has been a 'evasive' step for them since time immemorial, Just how do they expect people to succumb to the chip and everything else is puzzling, but, I suspect that the crashing economy and the coming food and water crisis will make people beg for the government to fix there problems, (World Government) NWO.



Note: Africa has been a "test case" for World Government for hundreds of years, the Famines, the Wars, Plagues(Aids,Ebola), Economic Calamity, etc.. most of the Affrican Nations have resisted thus far.

That picture is a SWORD plowing through the U.S. flag. talk about Gumption, No Fear! You have to wonder with OIL at nearly 100 dollars a barrel, That Iran is playing games with the Zionist, in order to squeeze billions in Oil profits????scare tactics, just like the good ole U.S.A uses. talk about turning the tables.

“War” is the mechanism by which the “controllers” induce social & infrastructural change, on a massive scale. Since the “War on Terror”, we can conclude that “Terror” is another mechanism by which the “controllers” induce social & infrastructural change. Or they are one in the same. Notice how “terrorism has grown & multiplied 1000 fold” since 911, which was “caused by terrorism to fight terrorism”. So the “creators” (controllers) of both sides of the conflict can not hide the fact that one (terror) needs the other (war) to justify its existence (of war). Regardless of who’s in which side, or what side fights the other side, a World War or a Global War will still be their objective, which is to subjugate humanity, & drive humanity into the inevitable “outcome” of a world war. Again, the mechanism of War would be used on a massive scale to “effect the outcome” of the “destruction of the world” we have learned to love, & so that the controllers can “change the modern world” which was steadily & perfectly growing out of their control. A “conflict should be avoided” at all costs, or they (the controllers) will once again reap the rewards of their “forced change”.

----------------------------------------------

Obviously, without conflict the world might enjoy peace and harmony throughout the globe.

But, that is not their nature as evidenced by history.

They certainly don't prefer avoidance of conflict.

They thrive on it to further their agenda of world dominance.

<a href="http://www.globalresearch.ca/images/harita_b.jpeg" target="_blank">The Middle East </a>

Excerpts:

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto has created conditions which contribute to the ongoing destabilization and fragmentation of Pakistan as a Nation.

"It has been known for months that the Bush-Cheney administration and its allies have been maneuvering to strengthen their political control of Pakistan, paving the way for the expansion and deepening of the “war on terrorism” across the region.

The assassination of Bhutto appears to have been anticipated. There were even reports of “chatter” among US officials about the possible assassinations of either Pervez M USharraf or Benazir Bhutto, well before the actual attempts took place.

"Regime changel" with a view to ensuring continuity under Military Rule is no longer the main thrUSt of US foreign policy. The regime of Pervez Musharraf cannot prevail. Washington's foreign policy course is to actively promote the political fragmentation and balkanization of Pakistan as a nation.

This expanded Military presence is also dictated by the Middle East-Central Asia geopolitical situation and Washington's ongoing plans to extend the Middle East war to a much broader area.

This US agenda for Pakistan is similar to that applied throughout the broader Middle East Central Asian region. US strategy, supported by covert intelligence operations, consists in triggering ethnic and religious strife, abetting and financing secessionist movements while also weakening the institutions of the central government.

Pakistan's extensive oil and gas reserves, largely located in Balochistan province, as well as its pipeline corridors are considered strategic by the Anglo-American alliance, requiring the concurrent militarization of Pakistani territory.

Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in Rawalpindi, no ordinary city. Rawalpindi is a Military city host to the headquarters of the Pakistani Armed Forces and Military intelligence (ISI). Ironically Bhutto was assassinated in an urban area tightly controlled and guarded by the Military Police and the country's elite forces. Rawalpindi is swarming with ISI intelligence officials, which invariably infiltrate political rallies. Her assassination was not a haphazard event.

Without evidence, quoting Pakistan government sources, the Western media in chorus has highlighted the role of Al-Qaedal, while also focusing on the the possible involvement of the ISI.

What these interpretations do not mention is that the ISI continues to play a key role in overseeing Al Qaeda on behalf of US intelligence. The press reports fail to mention two important and well documented facts:

1) the ISI maintains close ties to the CIA. The ISI is virtually an appendage of the CIA.

2) Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA. The ISI provides covert support to Al Qaeda, acting on behalf of US intelligence.

The involvement of either Al Qaeda and/or the ISI would suggest that US intelligence was cognizant and/or implicated in the assassination plot.

President: Muslim thinkers can introduce independent monetary, banking system - Irna (http://www2.irna.ir/en/news/view/line-24/0802164702211812.htm)



President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Saturday that Muslim world thinkers are capable of introducing a monetary and banking system independent of the current system dominating the world.

President Ahmadinejad told head of the Islamic Development Bank Ahmad Mohammad Ali that any decision and activities for establishment of a banking and monetary system being based on Islamic injunctions would have an impact on colonial approach of some states towards Muslim states.

Stressing that the monetary and banking system regulates relations among countries and is the basis for economic activities, Ahmadinejad said Muslim states have been facing some restrictions in acting on the monetary and banking system governing the world.

He went on to say that the monetary and financial system underway in the world were devised after World War II as a means for domination on other countries.

He said among restrictions which such financial and monetary systems have created for Muslim states are outflow of Muslim nations' wealth and achievements and usage of the financial and monetary mechanisms against Muslim world.

He said some financial institutions, while offering loans, impose their economic policies on countries.

He then referred to war in Africa and said some countries wage war in Africa to raise their arms sale there and plunder the continent's mineral resources and wealth, prepare the ground for massacre of enormous people.

He said there are yet other groups of states which have monopolized drugs to dominate other nations and test their new drugs on nations.

The president went on to say that cooperation among Muslim states will help speed up growth and development.

Part of Muslim states' wealth can be put at the disposal of the IDB so that it can present them to Muslim countries to be spent on their development.

He said sound management is needed for better exploitation of Muslim world potential.

He added that more than 90 percent of Muslim states' needs can been met by the countries themselves.

He noted that the IDB and the Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development can help enhance areas of their activities.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to put all its scientific achievements and its engineering and technological services at the disposal of other countries, he added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad said all countries today need sustainable and peaceful nuclear energy for their industrial, agricultural and health development, so Iran is ready to put its invaluable experience in the field at the disposal of Muslim states under the IAEA supervision.

He also pointed to Iran's extensive progress in different fields and said Iran has gained remarkable achievements in the dam and power plant construction, auto manufacturing, health, medicare and new technologies.

He hailed the IDB as a strong and supportive base for Muslim world economic activities.

He pointed to establishment of the Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development, calling it one of the IDB blessings.

He hoped that through efforts of Muslim officials and their assistance, there will be no poverty and illiteracy in Muslim world, which is not an inaccessible goal.

He then hailed Muslim world for having the best financial resources, tourism attractions and rich underground resources, saying facilities and ground are prepared for a big jump towards reconstruction in the world of Islam.

Passion, fraternity, peace loving and Islamic justice seeking feelings are assets of Muslim world as mankind needs them, he added.

Prior to the president's address, IDB Chief Ahmad Mohammad Ali said there are extensive grounds for Muslim world's using Iran's valuable experience.

He said the Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development has been established to eliminate poverty and illiteracy and eradicate contagious diseases in Muslim states.

He hoped that through constant support of Muslim states, especially Iran, the Fund would achieve its goal of development.

Crisis Over Teheran's Alleged Nuclear Plans Nearing Climax
By BILL AND KATHY CHRISTISON
This article came out on CounterPunch this morning:


Reference: Bill and Kathy Christison: Teheran's Alleged Nuclear Plans (http://www.counterpunch.org/christison03082008.html)

March 8-9, 2008


Time after time we have heard statements from Israeli officials, spokesmen of the Israel lobby in the U.S., and Israel’s supporters in Congress that Iran “must” never obtain nuclear weapons. On March 3, 2008, all five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus nine of the ten non-permanent members approved a new round of sanctions against Iran. Chalk up the final vote of 14-0 with one abstention (the Muslim nation of Indonesia) as another victory at the U.N. for the Israel-U.S. partnership.

The spectacle of the five “permanents” in the antiquated Security Council hierarchy -- all of whom refuse to eliminate their own nuclear weapons -- adopting a double standard with respect to Iran does not, of course, raise more than a peep in the mainstream media of the U.S. Iran, a nation of proud people in a neighborhood of proud peoples, sees only absurdity in the discrimination against it when the nearby nations of India, Pakistan, and Israel have all developed their own nuclear weapons without the U.S. stopping them. Israel’s nuclear weapons program particularly sticks in the Iranian craw, because Iranians know that Israel, an enemy but a far smaller country, acquired nuclear weapons over 40 years ago, considerably earlier than either India or Pakistan. Most Iranians also know that Israel accomplished this only with public and/or private aid from the U.S. It’s all seen as just one more example of the U.S. favoring Israel and picking on Iran.

The issue of the moment is not even actual production of nuclear weapons by Iran, but the “enrichment” of natural uranium so that it contains a higher percentage of one particular uranium isotope, U-235, than is found in nature when the ore called “uranium” is first mined. Such enrichment provides the single most-difficult-to-obtain product used in most nuclear weapons. (In the natural state, the raw ore contains other uranium isotopes as well, and usually has by volume less than one percent U-235. When concentrated to around three percent U-235, the product is widely used in common forms of nuclear power reactors. When concentrated to much higher levels -- 90 percent is the figure often cited -- the product becomes the “weapons-grade” material used in nuclear weapons. The equipment used in this “enrichment” process is not only complicated to build, manage and maintain; it also requires large amounts of electric power to operate. But all of this is within the capabilities of numerous nations and, probably increasingly, some subnational groups as well.)

Iran now possesses, has tested, and is using all the equipment required, and it has the necessary electric power, to produce enriched uranium. It claims it has already reached an enrichment level of around four percent U-235 in early tests. It also claims that it does not want nuclear weapons and will use the enriched uranium only to produce larger amounts of electric power for the nation in a series of nuclear power plants. But if one chooses to believe that Iran really wants nuclear weapons, another element comes into the equation: the ease with which an enrichment operation can be converted to produce weapons-grade uranium. Various Western experts commonly believe that if a nation or group is capable of going from less than one percent to a three or four percent enrichment level, then the technical difficulties of moving from three or four to 90 percent enrichment are not at all major.

The actual design and manufacture of the explosive device, and then of a deliverable weapon, would not be a simple task, but neither would it be terribly difficult. Precise estimates of the time the entire process might take are generally useless. There are too many variables. All such estimates depend heavily on the types of delivery systems available, the degree of targeting accuracy demanded, and the redundancy, or lack, of safety features assumed necessary to prevent unauthorized or accidental use. But for Iran, a simple guess of three or four years probably would be in the ball park.

While the U.S. and other nations demand that Iran cease all production of enriched uranium, the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) that came into effect in 1970 does not prevent anyone from enriching uranium for peaceful purposes. Iran, as already noted, claims that is all it is presently doing, and there is no hard evidence to the contrary. The U.S., however, and most other signatories of the treaty who already possess nuclear weapons have made no serious efforts to work toward global nuclear and general disarmament as called for in the NPT. The treaty, of course, has no timetable or deadlines in it. But the fact that the major powers who signed the treaty have not even begun multilateral negotiations on nuclear disarmament in 38 years gives Iran a good excuse, if it needs one, to abrogate its participation in the treaty. Some day Iran may do just that. The fact that Israel, India, and Pakistan, who have refused to sign the treaty from the start, have now become known nuclear powers, gives leaders in Teheran yet another excuse to get out of the NPT if it wishes.

While some U.S. empire builders talk about the need to change the global system, the world today is still composed of legally independent states where nationalism is the dominant force underlying relationships among states. In such a world, it is logical to assume that Iranian leaders either already secretly want nuclear weapons or will soon come to want them. They will not indefinitely accept that the smaller state of Israel has any greater right to nuclear weapons than they have. Nor will they even accept that the much larger U.S. has a greater right to such weapons. Short of being forced abjectly to surrender to the U.S.-Israeli partnership, no Iranian government leaders could accept such views.

The possibility of negotiating a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East (including Israel), or even, conceivably, a nuclear-free world, is often suggested as the only true final solution to the Middle East’s or the entire globe’s nuclear dilemma. And the people who make such suggestions can often cite polls or surveys showing that a majority of people everywhere support these ideas. The tragedy is that at the moment there is simply not enough trust among the governments of the globe, or even within one region thereof. Take the United States alone, or the U.S.-Israel partnership. It is inconceivable that the present government of either partner would be able even to begin negotiations on eliminating its nuclear weapons, no matter what the possible benefits might be. The same would apply to China, Russia, Britain, France, India, and Pakistan to greater or lesser degrees.

Even in this time of distrust, however, the U.N. should set up a permanent conference of ambassador-level experts on Disarmament and Global Crises. Once it is up and running, spokespeople for this conference should direct public attention on a daily basis to the relationship between arms spending and the three major crises facing the globe -- the energy, climate, and water crises that will make it increasingly necessary for the peoples of the world to work together in overcoming the crises and drastically cutting back the outrageous and wasteful military expenditures of too many nations. The immediate task of the conference should be to define areas of agreement and disagreement on disarmament and on the other three issues in different regions of the world. The chairperson should be a very senior U.N. official, and the unusual feature of the conference -- its permanence -- should receive great emphasis on every public occasion.

It is likely that before long new and unforeseen developments will occur in one or more of the three crises that will intensify thinking among at least some people about the wastefulness of present military spending. Costly new difficulties in any of the three areas might even lead in fairly short order to a rolling snowball of global opposition and disgust over new nuclear spending. No one can foresee how great will be the changes in daily life caused by the three crises but we should, as best we can, work to make the changes add to rather than detract from harmony among the world’s peoples. We should all specifically try to use these crises to encourage everyone to think first as citizens of the world, only second as citizens of a particular nation or region.

But none of this deals with the present -- or with the remaining months of Bush’s presidency. Since the present group of Republicans and copycat Democrats in Congress refuses to impeach Bush and Cheney, the danger of a war against Iran instigated by the U.S. and Israel remains real. The overextended state of U.S. ground forces, and Bush’s probable willingness to treat at least small nuclear weapons as ordinary weapons, mean that a war would possibly not be a ground war at all, but would begin with large air attacks and early use of nuclear weapons. While the longer term results of using nuclear weapons would be utterly disastrous, both for the world and for the U.S., the immediate results might be seen as a quick and cheap victory for the U.S. If the apparent military victory occurred before the November 2008 U.S. election, it would probably guarantee a Republican electoral victory. Given Bush’s interest in his own place in history, such a scenario could easily appeal to his gambling instincts.

Noise, and lots of it, seems to be the only weapon we have to make it less likely that such a scenario actually happens. Let’s make that noise, do it globally, and do it every day. Pound out the message through every medium we can access, including music and literature, that ordinary people around the world DO NOT WANT THE U.S. AND ISRAEL TO KILL A SINGLE PERSON IN IRAN, regardless of the status of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

US Nuclear B-1 Bomber On Iran ‘Attack Run’ Shot Down

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)









In a disturbing continuation of our April 2nd report, “Russia ‘Alarmed’ As US Readies April Nuclear Attack On Iran”, and wherein we reported on the United States War Leaders plans to attack Iran, Russian Military Analysts are today reporting that the US Air Force has ‘shot down’ one of their own bombers reported to be on an ‘attack run’ towards Iran’s Bushehr nuclear plant. [Pictured 3rd down on left]

According to these reports, an American B-1 Lancer supersonic strategic nuclear bomber based out of the United States Ellsworth Air Force Base, and which bills itself as, "The "backbone" of global engagement for the 21st century", attempted to ‘deviate’ from its assigned flight path over the Persian Gulf Nation of Qatar by rapidly descending for what these reports state is ‘typical’ for these types of aircraft when engaging in combat.

When contacted by US Air Force officials stationed at Qatar’s Al Udeid Air Base, these reports continue, this B-1 nuclear bomber ‘squawked’ what is called a ‘CIA Identification Code’, and not, what Russian Military Analysts say, was the correct code for American fighter aircraft over flying Middle Eastern Nations, whereupon it was ordered to land or face an ‘immediate’ shoot down.

Russian Military intercepts of US Air Force communications, during this incident, portray a chaotic scene where after refusing to change its course, American Military Officials ordered a US F-16 Fighter Jet to ‘strafe’ the B-1 nuclear bomber, but then a US Naval Carrier, stationed in the Persian Gulf, ‘ordered’ its fighter jets to attack those of the US Air Force.

As US Air Force Commanders launched more of their fighter jets into the air against their own Naval Forces, the B-1 nuclear bomber was reported to have been hit by cannon fire from the F-16 fighter jet, after which it changed its course for an ‘emergency’ landing at the Al Udeid Air Base and which upon landing ‘exploded’. These reports state that no further hostilities between the US Air Force and its Navy counterparts during this incident occurred.

American propaganda media sources, though acknowledging the destruction of this B-1 nuclear bomber, have failed, so far, to complete their fabrication of this incident into the final coherent form they deem suitable for their citizens, and as we can read as reported by the Dakota Voice News Service, and as we can read:

"The Rapid City Journal is confirming that the B-1 bomber which was involved in the incident in Qatar earlier today was from Ellsworth Air Force Base here in Rapid City.

The crew made it to safety, and the article says that details are uncertain as to whether the crew was from Ellsworth or from another base. Sgt. Sandra Lucas of the Al-Udeid Air Base public affairs office confirmed Friday afternoon that the incident involved an Ellsworth plane. But she could not confirm whether any or all of the plane’s crew members were from Ellsworth.

The Air Force says the bomber was taxiing after landing at Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar and caught fire. Few details are available, although the Air Force says the aircraft was involved in a ground incident. All four crew members aboard the plane safely evacuated, according to the Air Force.

It was initially reported that the bomber crashed, but reports now say that wasn't the case. One report said that some of the munitions aboard exploded, but I've only seen that in one place, so don't know for sure if it's accurate."

Russian Military Commanders further speculate, in these reports, that the United States Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, and who last week ordered a full inventory of all American nuclear weapons, was ‘no doubt’ the US Military Commander who issued the ‘shoot down’ order for this B-1 nuclear bomber as he has been reported long at odds with the American Vice President, Richard Cheney, over the latter’s push for an immediate nuclear strike against Iran.

Bush and Putin fail to resolve missile differences
By Susan Cornwell and Oleg Shchedrov
SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush and Russia's Vladimir Putin ended their last face-to-face meeting as heads of state on Sunday with warm words for each other but no solution to their row over missile defence.

With Putin to step down next month and Bush in the twilight of his presidency, both leaders stressed the strong personal rapport which they say has helped keep relations between their countries on an even keel.

But differences over U.S. plans for a missile defence shield in eastern Europe, which have helped drive diplomatic ties to a post-Cold War low, meant their summit on the Black Sea coast ended with no firm agreements.

Afterwards, a top Bush aide implied that no agreement would be agreed until the inauguration of new presidents in both countries. That would delay progress until early next year.

"This is an area we've got more work to do to convince the Russian side that the system is not aimed at Russia," Bush said after a morning of talks with Putin at the Russian leader's vacation retreat in the resort of Sochi.

Keen to leave a positive legacy for their successors, the two leaders signed a document setting out a "road map" for future ties after they leave office and said they would keep working to reach a compromise on the shield row.

Washington had hoped to make substantial progress towards a deal on the shield at the two-day summit in the resort of Sochi but the vaguely-worded declaration fell short of that.

In preparation for when Putin steps down on May 7, Bush also held talks with Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian leader's protege who will take over as president. Bush said afterwards his first impressions were "very positive. A smart fellow".

Seven years ago Bush said he had peered into Putin's soul and found a man he could trust. Since then relations between their two countries have been soured by disputes over Iran, Kosovo, the missile shield and NATO enlargement.

But the two leaders paid warm tributes to each other after their talks in Sochi and Bush joined Putin on stage to dance with a Russian folk ensemble at an informal dinner on Saturday.

"I always appreciated his (Bush's) superior human qualities: honesty, openness and an ability to hear a partner. This is worth a lot," Putin told a joint news conference.

PUTIN "CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC"

Washington says it wants to station interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar system in the Czech Republic to protect against missile strikes from what it calls "rogue states", specifically Iran. Russia says the plan threatens its security.

In their declaration, Putin and Bush said they would "intensify dialogue" to find a compromise. They said that could involve Russia and the United States working together on a joint missile defence system, but there were no details.

"I want to be understood correctly. Strategically, no change happened in our ... attitude to U.S. plans," Putin told reporters at his joint news briefing with Bush.

Putin said NATO's plans to offer eventual membership to ex-Soviet Ukraine and Georgia -- a step strongly backed by Washington -- were "an example of old logic where Russia was viewed as an adversary".

But he did not deploy any of his customary strident criticism of the United States, saying he did not want differences to overshadow their relationship.

In keeping with the upbeat tone, the two leaders committed themselves to continue work on finding a replacement for the START nuclear arms treaty, which expires next year.

Bush said he would ask the U.S. Congress to repeal this year the Jackson-Vanik amendment, a Cold War-era provision tying trade to human rights. It has not hampered vibrant trade links but the Kremlin sees the failure to repeal it as a slight.

After Bush departed for Washington, a presidential aide on board Air Force One suggested no deal would be concluded until new leaders take office in both Moscow and Washington, delaying any agreement until next January at the earliest.

"They (Bush and Putin) can leave that to their prospective successors," national security adviser Stephen Hadley said.

Iran's Ahmadinejad charges US with assassination plot (http://www.monstersandcritics.com/news/middleeast/news/article_1412297.php)
first the ASSASINATION

Tehran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday charged the United States with an assassination plot against him, Fars news agency reported.

'According to reliable information, as I rejected to reside in the green zone during my trip to Iraq, the Americans had planned to kidnap and kill this humble servant of the nation,' Ahmadinejad told clergy circles in a meeting in the religious city of Qom in central Iran.

'The plot was neutralized due to a last-minute change of our schedule,' Ahmadinejad added, without however elaborating how Iran gained the information of the assassination attempt.

Ahmadinejad was in Iraq last March and according to reports back then, he cancelled a trip to southern Iraqi holy cities of Karbala and Najaf due to security concerns.


ISRAEL PREPLANS...

U.S. says exercise by Israel seemed directed at Iran
By Michael R. Gordon and Eric Schmitt Published: June 20, 2008



WASHINGTON: Israel carried out a major military exercise earlier this month that American officials say appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

Several American officials said the Israeli exercise appeared to be an effort to develop the military's capacity to carry out long-range strikes and to demonstrate the seriousness with which Israel views Iran's nuclear program.

More than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighters participated in the maneuvers, which were carried out over the eastern Mediterranean and over Greece during the first week of June, American officials said.

The exercise also included Israeli helicopters that could be used to rescue downed pilots. The helicopters and refueling tankers flew more than 900 miles, which is about the same distance between Israel and Iran's uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, American officials said.

Israeli officials declined to discuss the details of the exercise. A spokesman for the Israeli military would say only that the country's air force "regularly trains for various missions in order to confront and meet the challenges posed by the threats facing Israel."

U.S. says exercise by Israel seemed directed at Iran - International Herald Tribune (http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/06/20/america/20iran.php?page=1)
Evidence is mixed on Bush view of IranRussia's foreign minister warns against use of force on Iran

But the scope of the Israeli exercise virtually guaranteed that it would be noticed by American and other foreign intelligence agencies. A senior Pentagon official who has been briefed on the exercise, and who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the political delicacy of the matter, said the exercise appeared to serve multiple purposes.

One Israeli goal, the Pentagon official said, was to practice flight tactics, aerial refueling and all other details of a possible strike against Iran's nuclear installations and its long-range conventional missiles.

A second, the official said, was to send a clear message to the United States and other countries that Israel was prepared to act militarily if diplomatic efforts to stop Iran from producing bomb-grade uranium continued to falter.

"They wanted us to know, they wanted the Europeans to know, and they wanted the Iranians to know," the Pentagon official said. "There's a lot of signaling going on at different levels."

Several American officials said they did not believe that the Israeli government had concluded that it must attack Iran and did not think that such a strike was imminent.

Shaul Mofaz, a former Israeli defense minister who is now a deputy prime minister, warned in a recent interview with the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot that Israel might have no choice but to attack. "If Iran continues with its program for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack," Mofaz said in the interview published on June 6, the day after the unpublicized exercise ended. "Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable."

But Mofaz was criticized by other Israeli politicians as seeking to enhance his own standing as questions mount about whether the embattled Israeli prime minister, Ehud Olmert, can hang on to power.

Israeli officials have told their American counterparts that Mofaz's statement does not represent official policy. But American officials were also told that Israel had prepared plans for striking nuclear targets in Iran and could carry them out if needed.

Iran has shown signs that it is taking the Israeli warnings seriously, by beefing up its air defenses in recent weeks, including increasing air patrols. In one instance, Iran scrambled F-4 jets to double-check an Iraqi civilian flight from Baghdad to Tehran.

"They are clearly nervous about this and have their air defense on guard," a Bush administration official said of the Iranians.

Any Israeli attack against Iran's nuclear facilities would confront a number of challenges. Many American experts say they believe that such an attack could delay but not eliminate Iran's nuclear program. Much of the program's infrastructure is buried under earth and concrete and installed in long tunnels or hallways, making precise targeting difficult. There is also concern that not all of the facilities have been detected. To inflict maximum damage, multiple attacks might be necessary, which many analysts say is beyond Israel's ability at this time.

But waiting also entails risks for the Israelis. Israeli officials have repeatedly expressed fears that Iran will soon master the technology it needs to produce substantial quantities of highly enriched uranium for nuclear weapons.

Iran is also taking steps to better defend its nuclear facilities. Two sets of advance Russian-made radar systems were recently delivered to Iran. The radar will enhance Iran's ability to detect planes flying at low altitude.

Mike McConnell, the director of national intelligence, said in February that Iran was close to acquiring Russian-produced SA-20 surface-to-air missiles. American military officials said that the deployment of such systems would hamper Israel's attack planning, putting pressure on Israel to act before the missiles are fielded.

For both the United States and Israel, Iran's nuclear program has been a persistent worry. A National Intelligence Estimate that was issued in December by American intelligence agencies asserted that Iran had suspended work on weapons design in late 2003. The report stated that it was unclear if that work had resumed. It also noted that Iran's work on uranium enrichment and on missiles, two steps that Iran would need to take to field a nuclear weapon, had continued.

In late May, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported that Iran's suspected work on nuclear matters was a "matter of serious concern" and that the Iranians owed the agency "substantial explanations."

Over the past three decades, Israel has carried out two unilateral attacks against suspected nuclear sites in the Middle East. In 1981, Israeli jets conducted a raid against Iraq's nuclear plant at Osirak after concluding that it was part of Saddam Hussein's program to develop nuclear weapons. In September, Israeli aircraft bombed a structure in Syria that American officials said housed a nuclear reactor built with the aid of North Korea.

The United States protested the Israeli strike against Iraq in 1981, but its comments in recent months have amounted to an implicit endorsement of the Israeli strike in Syria.

Pentagon officials said that Israel's air forces usually conducted a major early summer training exercise, often flying over the Mediterranean or training ranges in Turkey where they practice bombing runs and aerial refueling. But the exercise this month involved a larger number of aircraft than had been previously observed, and included a lengthy combat rescue mission.

Much of the planning appears to reflect a commitment by Israel's military leaders to ensure that its armed forces are adequately equipped and trained, an imperative driven home by the difficulties the Israeli military encountered in its Lebanon operation against Hezbollah.

"They rehearse it, rehearse it and rehearse it, so if they actually have to do it, they're ready," the Pentagon official said. "They're not taking any options off the table."

Ethan Bronner contributed reporting from Jerusalem.

US officials: Israeli military exercise was preparation for attack on Iran's nuke plant
The exercise involved more than 100 jet fighters, helicopters, and air-refueling tankers, according to a new report.

US officials: Israeli military exercise was preparation for attack on Iran's nuke plant | csmonitor.com (http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0621/p99s01-duts.html)

US military officials say that a major Israeli military exercise conducted two weeks ago appeared to be a rehearsal for an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, according to a New York Times report.

The Times writes that the exercise took place during the first week of June, and was so large as to be nearly guaranteed to be detected by US and other foreign observers, including Iran itself.

More than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighters participated in the maneuvers, which were carried out over the eastern Mediterranean and over Greece during the first week of June, American officials said.

The exercise also included Israeli helicopters that could be used to rescue downed pilots. The helicopters and refueling tankers flew more than 900 miles, which is about the same distance between Israel and Iran's uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, American officials said.

A Pentagon official, speaking anonymously due to the sensitivity of the issue, told the Times that the high profile of the exercise was not an accident. Rather, it was one of Israel's two intended goals for undergoing the rehearsal.

One Israeli goal, the Pentagon official said, was to practice flight tactics, aerial refueling and all other details of a possible strike against Iran's nuclear installations and its long-range conventional missiles.

A second, the official said, was to send a clear message to the United States and other countries that Israel was prepared to act militarily if diplomatic efforts to stop Iran from producing bomb-grade uranium continued to falter.

"They wanted us to know, they wanted the Europeans to know, and they wanted the Iranians to know," the Pentagon official said. "There's a lot of signaling going on at different levels."

The Times notes that Iran appears to be "beefing up its air defenses" recently in response, and has been buying Russian radar systems and surface-to-air missiles to better protect its nuclear facilities.

Agence France-Presse writes that an Israeli Air Force spokesman neither confirmed nor denied the exercise's existence or its focus on Iran, saying only that "The Israeli Air Force regularly trains for various missions in order to confront and meet the challenges posed by the threats." AFP notes, however, that the same week that the exercise took place, Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz told the Yediot Aharonot newspaper that "If Iran continues its nuclear weapons program, we will attack it."

In an interview with Der Spiegel earlier this week, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert also indicated that an attack on Iran was a possibility.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Can Israel live with a nuclear Iran?

Olmert: No. I don't think -- considering the nature of the Iranian regime -- that Israel can be expected to live under the threat that they may use it.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Does Israel have the military capability to remove any nuclear threat on its own?

Olmert: I think that the capabilities of Israel are well known to the world and I don't need to go into the details and to analyze them or to describe further what everyone knows.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Does the Begin Doctrine, which stipulates that Israel can act on its own if it feels threatened, still apply today?

Olmert: Israel always has to be in a position to defend itself against any adversary and against any threat of any kind.

The New York Sun reports that the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a bipartisan thinktank, released a paper this week indicating Israeli preference for preemptive action against Iranian nuclear facilities, rather than attempting to deter an Iran that has nuclear weapons.

The paper proposes that prevention of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon is a superior option to the prospect of deterring the Iranians once they get one: "Americans should recognize that deterrence is, in Israeli eyes, an unattractive alternative to prevention, because, if deterrence fails, Israel would suffer terribly. The consequence is that any suggestion that a policy of deterrence is America's preferred option only reinforces the idea among many Israelis that, in the end, they may be left alone to bear the brunt of the Iranian nuclear threat."

The Sun notes that the paper, available on the Institute's website, includes signatories from the camps of both US presidential nominees: former national security adviser Tony Lake for Sen. Barack Obama (D) of Illinois and former Director of Central Intelligence James Woolsey for Sen. John McCain (R) of Arizona.

But the Jerusalem Post reports that even if Israel did launch a strike against Iran's nuclear facilities, it's unlikely to be able to destroy Iran's nuclear program completely, according to Israeli military analyst Martin Van Creveld of Jerusalem's Hebrew University.

"Israel has been talking about this possibility for a long time, that it would not take an Iranian nuclear weapon lying down. And it has been practicing the operation or operations for a long time," he said.

But though an Israeli strike would likely be able to "paralyze the most important Iranian nuclear installations," it probably won't be able to destroy the program entirely, Van Creveld said. "I would be very surprised if Israel can really knock out every part of this program, which by all accounts appears to be large and well concealed and well dispersed," he said.

Further, in an article examining Iran's options for retaliation against an attack by the US, The Christian Science Monitor suggests that Israel is a viable target for counterattack by Shahab-3 ballistic missiles from Iran or smaller rockets from Lebanon, launched by Iran-supported Hezbollah. And the Monitor adds that Iran has attacked Israeli interests farther abroad, making an Iranian response to attack very hard to predict.

Iran and Hezbollah are alleged to have collaborated in the May 1992 bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires in revenge for Israel's killing of a Hezbollah leader months before. Argentine prosecutors charge that they jointly struck again in 1994, bombing a Jewish community center in the Argentine capital that killed 85, one month after Israel attacked a Hezbollah base in Lebanon.

With some 30,000 on the payroll by one count, Iranian intelligence "is a superpower in intelligence terms in the region; they have global reach because of their reconnaissance ability and quite sophisticated ways of inflicting pain," says [Magnus Ranstorp of the Center for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defense College in Stockholm]. "They have been expanding their influence.... Who would have predicted that Argentina would be the area that Hezbollah and the Iranians collectively would respond?"

CAIRO — Preparing the 'battlefield' with Iran, the Bush administration gave a major 'boost' to clandestine operations against Tehran to destabilize the Iranian regime, award-winning American investigative reporter Seymour Hersh reveals. "Late last year, Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran," Hersh wrote in The New Yorker magazine's July 7 issue.
"These operations, for which the President sought up to four hundred million dollars, were described in a Presidential Finding signed by Bush, and are designed to destabilize the country’s religious leadership."

Citing current and former intelligence and congressional sources, Hersh said the Finding was conveyed late last year to a select group of Congressional leaders and their intelligence committees, known as the Gang of Eight.

"The Finding was focused on undermining Iran's nuclear ambitions and trying to undermine the government through regime change," said an unnamed official familiar with the finding's content.

It also involved "working with opposition groups and passing money," he added.

The covert activities include gathering intelligence about Iran's nuclear program.

They also include supporting the minority Ahwazi Arab and Baluchi groups and other dissident organizations.

The covert activities funded by the Finding are to be carried out by the dissident groups inside or outside Iran and not by Americans in the field.

Tehran has accused the US of supplying Iranian separatist groups with arms and using them in a proxy war against the Islamic republic.

The Sunday Telegraph revealed last year that Bush has authorized the CIA to conduct "black" operations to topple the Iranian regime of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, including funds for separatists and alleged terrorist groups.

Escalation

Hersh says the clandestine operations, which are not new, are a further escalation in the standoff with Tehran.

"The United States Special Operations Forces have been conducting cross-border operations from southern Iraq, with Presidential authorization, since last year," the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist said.

According to Hersh, it is the scale and scope of the new operations that make it extremely significant.

The US has never ruled out a "military action" against Iran over its nuclear program, which Tehran says it aims at generating energy for a growing population.

Hersh revealed last year that the Pentagon had formed a special group to plan an attack against Iran that can be implemented within 24 hours.

The new US strategy faced strong opposition from some senior officials and military leaders.

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Admiral William Fallon, who resigned last March from his post as the head of Central Command, were among the most outspoken opponents to the strategy.

Hersh says the escalation strategy also raised skepticism among some lawmakers and congressional leaders, and were subject to "a significant amount of high-level discussion."

Legislators were troubled by the operations' nature and that many of the clandestine activities were not specified in the secret Finding.

But the opposition failed to derail the plans.

"The oversight process has not kept pace—it’s been co-opted," by the administration, said the congressional official familiar with the Finding.

"The claim was that the military was ‘preparing the battle space,’ and by using that term they were able to circumvent congressional oversight.

"Everything is justified in terms of fighting the global war on terror."

Cheney on the Warpath Again? (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/blog/2008/04/11/BL2008041102216_pf.html)
Cheney on the Warpath Again?

By Dan Froomkin
Special to washingtonpost.com
Friday, April 11, 2008; 1:02 PM



Vice President Cheney went on right-wing talk radio yesterday with a dramatic new argument for preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons, casting the Iranian leadership as apocalyptic zealots who yearn for a nuclear conflagration.

Cheney also notably refused to comment about any recent conversations he may have had with Israeli leaders about the possibility of their bombing Iranian nuclear facilities. Some observers suspect Cheney of encouraging Israel to attack Iran as a proxy.

Conventional wisdom in Washington has it that Cheney and other supporters of military action against Iran were sidelined after a National Intelligence Estimate last November reported that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003.

But the vice president sounded anything but chastened yesterday, speaking with two of his favorite media enablers. In fact, he sounded like the NIE never happened.

Here he is talking to Sean Hannity:

Hannity: "What did you make of Senator Barack Obama's comments that he would talk to [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, a Holocaust denier who's repeatedly threatened to blow up and remove Israel from the state -- from the map, the world map, and obviously is pursuing some nuclear capability?"

Cheney: "Well, he is, and I think the position we've taken with respect to that is that we would be prepared to talk when they stopped enriching uranium. Of course, they've never met that condition, so we haven't had talks at that level.

"But Ahmadinejad is I think a very dangerous man. On the one hand, he has repeatedly stated that he wants to destroy Israel. He also has -- is a man who believes in the return of the 12th Imam; and that the highest honor that can befall a man is that he should die a martyr in facilitating the return of the 12th Imam.

"It's a radical, radical point of view. Bernard Lewis once said, mutual assured destruction in the Soviet-U.S. relationship in the Cold War meant deterrence, but mutual assured destruction with Ahmadinejad is an incentive. You have to be concerned about that."

The 12th Imam? What's that about? Just over two hours later, Hugh Hewitt was happy to indulge Cheney on that very issue.

Hewitt: "Do you -- Mr. Vice President, do you have a personal sense of whether or not the Iranian leadership is actually motivated by this end-times, bring-back-the-12th-Imam sort of theology that we've read so much about?"

Cheney: "Well, I've read about it, too. I don't know that that motivates all of the leadership. The one guy who talks about it repeatedly is Ahmadinejad. And -- in other words, a report even at one point that when he went to Iraq on a visit, that at least on one occasion, he insisted on there being a vacant chair at the table for the 12th Imam. And it's a -- it's hard to tell. I mean, if I look at what his beliefs supposedly are, the allegation that the -- a return of the 12th Imam is something to be much desired, and that the best contribution that a man can make is to die a martyr facilitating that return, and all that goes with it -- I always think of Bernard Lewis, who said that mutual assured destruction during the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviets meant peace and stability and deterrence, but mutual assured destruction in the hands of Ahmadinejad may just be an incentive. It's a worrisome proposition."

Hewitt: "If they actually possess nuclear weapons, do you think they're deterable in the way that the Soviets were, or is that what you're getting at, that they might actually use them because it's part of the theological justification for their -- "

Cheney: "Well, I think we have to be careful, obviously -- it's a difficult kind of a judgment to make. I think we do have an obligation to listen to what they're saying. And there's a great temptation, when he says truly outrageous things, for example, about the destruction of Israel, for people to write that off and say, well, he doesn't mean it, it's just rhetoric. But you can't do that. And I certainly am -- I know the Israelis well enough, and I was just there a couple of weeks ago, to know there isn't any way they're prepared to ignore those kinds of statements coming out of Tehran. They have to take them seriously, given their history. And I think they perceive the possibility of an Iran armed with nuclear weapons as a fundamental threat to the very survival of the state of Israel."

Hewitt: "Did you talk with the Israelis in any way you can discuss about action against Israel -- against Iran's nuclear capability?"

Cheney: "No, I couldn't talk about those matters here."

The 12th Imam

Cheney's talk of the 12th Imam marks his revival of an old neocon chestnut.

The 12th Imam, or the mahdi, is considered by devout Shiite Muslims to be a direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed who disappeared in the ninth century and will reappear before judgment day to end tyranny and promote justice.

The man Cheney cites as an authority on Iranian apocalyptic thinking, controversial mideast scholar Bernard Lewis, hinted in an Aug. 8, 2006, Wall Street Journal op-ed that Ahmadinejad might be planning a nuclear attack on Israel just two weeks later, on the date in the Islamic calendar when the Prophet Muhammad made his mystical journey to Jerusalem.

"This might well be deemed an appropriate date for the apocalyptic ending of Israel and if necessary of the world," Lewis wrote. "It is far from certain that Mr. Ahmadinejad plans any such cataclysmic events precisely for Aug. 22. But it would be wise to bear the possibility in mind."

Needless to say, the day went by without incident.

Noah Feldman wrote in the New York Times Magazine on Oct. 29, 2006, that "the relative absence of a contemporary Shiite trend to messianic brinkmanship suggests that Ahmadinejad's recent emphasis on the mahdi may be interpreted more in terms of an attempt to summon [Ayotollah] Khomeini's legacy and Iran's revolutionary moment than as a desperate willingness to bring the nation to the edge of war. . . .

"Ahmadinejad surely understands the consequences of using a nuclear bomb, and Shiite Islam, even in its messianic incarnation, still falls short of inviting nuclear retaliation and engendering collective suicide."

As for Wiping Israel Off the Map

Back in March, William Branigin of The Washington Post shed some light on the administration's continued insistence that the Iranian government had expressed its desire to wipe Israel off the map.

Branigin wrote: "In an October 2005 speech to a conference on a 'World without Zionism,' Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted by a state-run Iranian news agency as agreeing with a statement by Iran's late spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, that 'Israel must be wiped off the map.' Iran's foreign minister later said the comment had been incorrectly translated from Farsi and that Ahmadinejad was 'talking about the [Israeli] regime,' which Iran does not recognize and wants to see collapse.

"According to Farsi-speaking commentators including Juan Cole, a professor of Middle Eastern history at the University of Michigan, Ahmadinejad's exact quote was, 'The Imam said that this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.' Cole has written that Ahmadinejad was not calling for the 'Nazi-style extermination of a people,' but was expressing the wish that the Israeli government would disappear just as the shah of Iran's regime had collapsed in 1979."

Whither U.S. Policy?

Warren P. Strobel writes for McClatchy Newspapers: "The Bush administration has been divided over Iran policy almost since the day the president took office and, according to a variety of officials, it remains so today.

"One faction, led by Vice President Dick Cheney and including a sprinkling of officials at the Pentagon, State Department and elsewhere, has argued that before Bush leaves office in January, the administration should use military force to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities and punish Iran for supporting international terrorism and thwarting U.S. aims in Iraq. . . .

"A second faction, led by Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and much of the uniformed military and the intelligence community, opposes military strikes in favor of continued sanctions, diplomatic pressure and talks with Iran under certain conditions.

"This faction appears, for now, to retain the upper hand."

Well, maybe.

AFP's Olivier Knox notes that Bush overtly threatened Iran yesterday in his speech about Iraq.

Knox writes: "Bush on Thursday lumped Iran with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group as 'two of the greatest threats to America in this new century.' . . .

Bush "coupled the rhetorical blast with a clear warning that he would not hesitate to use force if the Islamic republic targets US interests in its strife-torn neighbor. . . .

"Iran 'has a choice to make. It can live in peace with its neighbor, enjoy strong economic and cultural and religious ties. Or it can continue to arm and train and fund illegal militant groups, which are terrorizing the Iraqi people and turning them against Iran,' he said.

"'If Iran makes the right choice, America will encourage a peaceful relationship between Iran and Iraq. Iran makes the wrong choice, America will act to protect our interests, and our troops, and our Iraqi partners,' he said."

Knox notes a history of hyperbole from Bush on this topic. "It was far from the first time that the deeply unpopular US president has dramatically described Iraq as the front line against Tehran and Osama bin Laden's terrorist network as he works to revive anemic US support for the war.

"In August 2007, Bush warned that Iran's suspect atomic program threatened to place the entire Middle East 'under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust.'

"In October 2007, Bush told world leaders that preventing Tehran from developing nuclear weapons was necessary 'if you're interested in avoiding World War III.'

"On two occasions, in March 2008 and in August 2007, Bush wrongly asserted that Iran had openly declared that it wants nuclear weapons. The White House later said he had erred. . . .

"Bush has refused to rule out using force in the nuclear standoff, fueling worries that he will attack Iran -- which he famously called part of an 'axis of evil' with North Korea and Saddam Hussein's Iraq -- before leaving office.

"In October, US Vice President Dick Cheney stoked those concerns when he warned Iran to suspend uranium enrichment or face 'serious consequences' -- the very language in the UN resolution on Iraq that the White House says justified the March 2003 invasion."

Steven Lee Myers and Thom Shanker write in the New York Times: "Mr. Bush's focus on Iran, while not new, reflected deepening concerns in the administration and the Pentagon about suspected Iranian support for some extremists. They say that support became increasingly evident late last month during the indecisive Iraqi operation to wrest control of Basra from Shiite militias and more recently in a spate of rocket attacks on the Green Zone in Baghdad."

And the neocons are clearly restless.

Matt Corley writes for ThinkProgress.org: "On his radio show this morning, Bill Bennett told the Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol -- who had a personal meeting with President Bush yesterday -- that a 'conclusion' he drew was that the hearing was 'less an argument for getting out of Iraq than going into Iran.' After suggesting that Iran may 'have to pay some price at some point on their own soil,' Kristol said that President Bush authorizing an attack of some kind before he leaves office is not 'out of the question'":

Bennett: "Do you think there's any chance that, and we won't ask you to reveal anything confidential, do you think there's any chance that we might take some action against some aspect of the Ira -- against Iran, let's put it that way, before the president leaves office?"

Kristol: "We didn't really talk about that, in all honesty, directly. I don't think it's out of the question. I think people are overdoing how much of a lame duck the president is."

Meanwhile, Charles Krauthammer takes a slightly different but also alarming tack in his Washington Post opinion column. Citing the "apocalyptic and messianic" views of the Iranian leaders, he endorses a form of deterrence that could actually increase tensions. Krauthammer writes: "President Bush's greatest contribution to nuclear peace would be to issue the following declaration . . .: 'It shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear attack upon Israel by Iran, or originating in Iran, as an attack by Iran on the United States, requiring a full retaliatory response upon Iran.'"

What seems to be a new drumbeat for military action has thus far remained under the radar of the mainstream media. When my colleagues do take notice, I hope they point out that the advocates of a strike against Iran are the same people who enthusiastically advocated the invasion of Iraq, making similarly authoritative-sounding declarations about the uselessness of diplomacy and the easy triumph of military might.

Opinion Watch

The USA Today editorial board writes: "The Iraq war has featured a changing cast of U.S. adversaries. Saddam Hussein. Sunni insurgents. Foreign fighters. Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.

"In the latest shift, the two top U.S. officials in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker, focused in this week's congressional testimony on 'special groups' -- Iranian-backed militias -- as the greatest long-term threat to Iraqi democracy.

"On Thursday, President Bush endorsed the officials' troop recommendations and again recast the enemy. Iraq, he said toward the end of his speech, is 'the convergence point for two of the greatest threats to America in this new century: al-Qaeda and Iran.'

"There's no question that al-Qaeda and Iran represent threats. But to conflate the two is disingenuous and misleading. . . .

"Iran is a strategic adversary that hasn't attacked the U.S. homeland. Its engagement with Iraq, its neighbor, is inevitable. . . .

"[T]he United States and Iran are facing off in a duel almost as complex as that between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. This requires a whole range of tools, beyond Bush's bellicose warning on Thursday that Tehran 'has a choice to make.' . . .

"Sunni al-Qaeda and Shiite Iran pose different challenges and require separate strategies. About the only thing they have in common is that neither would have a foothold in Iraq today had the United States not invaded and then mismanaged the aftermath."

Torture Watch

The Associated Press confirms and expands on ABC News's blockbuster revelation Wednesday that top Bush aides, including Cheney, micromanaged the torture of terrorist suspects from the White House basement. (See yesterday's column.)

The new report from Lara Jakes Jordan and Pamela Hess adds this indelible image: "At times, CIA officers would demonstrate some of the tactics, or at least detail how they worked, to make sure the small group of 'principals' fully understood what the al-Qaida detainees would undergo. The principals eventually authorized physical abuse such as slaps and pushes, sleep deprivation, or waterboarding."

Jordan and Hess also write: "The officials also took care to insulate President Bush from a series of meetings where CIA interrogation methods, including waterboarding, which simulates drowning, were discussed and ultimately approved.

"A former senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the meetings described them Thursday to the AP to confirm details first reported by ABC News on Wednesday. . . .

"Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., lambasted what he described as 'yet another astonishing disclosure about the Bush administration and its use of torture.'

"'Who would have thought that in the United States of America in the 21st century, the top officials of the executive branch would routinely gather in the White House to approve torture?' Kennedy said in a statement. 'Long after President Bush has left office, our country will continue to pay the price for his administration's renegade repudiation of the rule of law and fundamental human rights.'

"The American Civil Liberties Union called on Congress to investigate.

"'With each new revelation, it is beginning to look like the torture operation was managed and directed out of the White House,' ACLU legislative director Caroline Fredrickson said. 'This is what we suspected all along.'"

Legal blogger Jack Balkin, who on Wednesday dismissed the notion of domestic prosecution of Bush administration officials for war crimes, yesterday mulled another possibility instead: "A series of congressional investigations into the interrogation and detention policies of the previous Administration, or a special Presidential 'truth commission' like the 9/11 Commission would have certain advantages. They would require only that the next Administration cooperate with Congress-- for example, by declassifying certain OLC opinions and other documents that should never have been classified, and by giving permission for certain executive branch officials to testify before Congress."

Bush Approval Hits Another Low

No place to go but up just doesn't seem to apply to this president. Two new polls find Bush's job approval at all-time lows, with Gallup finding that Bush has dropped below his father's all-time low, has tied Jimmy Carter's all-time low, and looks good only by comparison to Richard Nixon and Harry Truman at their nadirs.

Frank Newport reports for Gallup: "President George W. Bush's job approval rating has dropped to 28%, the lowest of his administration. . . .

"Bush's low rating in the current poll is the result of an extraordinarily low average approval rating from Democrats, a low level of support from independents, and support from just two-thirds of his base of Republicans. . . .

"Bush's current 28% job approval rating is at the very low end of the spectrum of approval ratings Gallup has recorded across the 11 presidents in office since World War II."

Alan Fram writes for the Associated Press: "Public approval of President Bush has dipped to a new low in the Associated Press-Ipsos poll, driven by dissatisfaction with his handling of the economy.

"A survey released Thursday showed 28 percent approve of the overall job Bush is doing. . . .

"Highlighting Bush's broad unpopularity, 60 percent of Republicans approved of his overall job, his weakest showing yet with members of his own party. Just 7 percent of Democrats and 17 percent of independents approve."

Iraq Watch

Peter Baker and Karen DeYoung write in The Washington Post: "With Bush effectively freezing troop levels at 140,000 in August, Congress moved to challenge him on two fronts. Democratic leaders prepared to amend war-funding legislation to limit his options and to direct money to domestic priorities, while lawmakers from both parties took on his plan to sign a strategic agreement with Iraq that would outlast his presidency. . . .

"One confrontation centers on Bush's effort to negotiate a long-term 'strategic framework' agreement with Iraq this summer without congressional approval. The U.N. mandate that provides a legal basis for foreign troops operating in Iraq is set to expire at the end of the year, and the administration wants the framework and a related 'status of forces' agreement to govern the U.S. engagement in the new year.

"But lawmakers from both parties said Bush is trying to dictate war policy after he leaves office, and they maintained that an agreement with such enormous consequences should be submitted to the Senate for ratification as a treaty. At a rancorous Senate hearing, Republicans warned that they would join Democrats in fighting the pact."

Karen DeYoung has more in The Post about the two accords under negotiation -- and the congressional concerns.

The Speech

I wrote a bit about Bush's speech on the war in Iraq in yesterday's column.

Fred Kaplan writes in Slate that "the main question at this point is whether he instructed the speechwriters to be mendacious or merely shallow."

For instance: "'Gen. Petraeus has reported,' Bush said today, 'that security conditions have improved enough to withdraw all five surge brigades by the end of July.'

"I hope a few people on the speechwriting team blushed when they penned this passage. Those five surge brigades were going to pull out this July no matter what the situation in Iraq happened to be. Their 15-month tours of deployment will be up by then; they will go home; the Army has no combat brigades ready to replace them. This was always the calculation. It's the product of arithmetic, not policy."

E. J. Dionne Jr. writes in his Washington Post opinion column: "The administration and its supporters talk incessantly about winning but offer no strategy for victory, no definition of what victory would look like, no concrete steps to get us there and no real sense of where 'there' is. . . .

"Supporters of the war say its opponents are locked in the past, stuck on whether the war was a good idea in the first place. Whether the war was right or wrong, they say, it's time to move on and focus on the future.

"This has it backward. It's the war's backers and architects, including the president, who are trapped in the past. They are so invested in the original decision to invade Iraq that they won't even consider whether the United States would be better off winding down this commitment, relieving our military of the war's enormous burdens and redirecting our foreign policy."

Not Exactly on the Same Page

Peter Spiegel and Julian E. Barnes write in the Los Angeles Times: "President Bush, accepting the recommendation of Army Gen. David H. Petraeus to halt the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq in July, said Thursday that he would give the war commander 'all the time he needs' to decide on future troop cuts.

"But in a surprising show of public concern about an open-ended U.S. commitment, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates told a Senate hearing that he hoped to resume troop reductions soon after a 'brief' 45-day pause this summer.

"Gates' comments, along with similar testimony from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were in stark contrast to those of Petraeus, who spent two days this week on Capitol Hill telling lawmakers that it could be months before conditions in Iraq permitted further troop withdrawals.

"Differences within the Pentagon over the issue have been brewing for months, but rarely have they been aired publicly. Democrats on the Senate Armed Services Committee seized on the contrasts, prompting Gates to acknowledge that there is a difference in the way he and Petraeus view troop levels."

On Permanent Bases

Here's a little item to clip and save.

The Washington Post reports: "The Bush administration has assured Congress that it does not seek to establish 'permanent' U.S. military bases in Iraq. But an exchange yesterday among Sen. James Webb (D-Va.), State Department Iraq coordinator David Satterfield and Assistant Defense Secretary Mary Beth Long at a Foreign Relations Committee hearing suggests that permanence lies in the mind of the beholder:

"Webb: What is a permanent base?

"Satterfield: Senator, the administration has made quite clear that we are not seeking permanent bases in Iraq. . . .

"Webb: Right. But what is a permanent base? Are our bases in Japan permanent bases?

"Long: I have looked into this. As far as the department is concerned, we don't have a worldwide or even a department-wide definition of permanent bases. I believe those are, by and large, determined on a case-by-case basis. . . .

"Webb: Well, I understand that. But basically my point is it's sort of a dead word. It doesn't really mean anything.

"Long: Yes, Senator, you're completely right. It doesn't."

Executive Privilege Watch

Laurie Kellman writes for the Associated Press: "President Bush's refusal to let two confidants provide information to Congress about fired federal prosecutors represents the most expansive view of executive privilege since Watergate, the House Judiciary Committee told a federal judge Thursday.

"Lawyers for the Democratic-led panel argued in court documents that Bush's chief of staff, Josh Bolten, and former White House counsel Harriet Miers are not protected from subpoenas last year that sought information about the dismissals. . . .

"House lawyers told U.S. District Judge John D. Bates that subpoenaed White House officials cannot simply skip hearings as Miers did during the committee's investigation. Further, they said, any documents or testimony believed to be covered by the privilege must be itemized for Congress' assessment."

Cheney and the Naked Lady

Kevin G. Hall and George Bridges write for McClatchy Newspapers: "He shot his hunting partner, but Vice President Dick Cheney apparently doesn't fly fish with naked women.

"Since Wednesday, the blogosphere has been atwitter over a photograph on the White House Web site of Cheney with a caption that said he was fly-fishing on the Snake River in Idaho.

"The photo is a tight shot of Cheney's face sporting dark sunglasses and his trademark grin.

"What's stirring all the buzz is the reflection in the vice president's dark glasses. Some thought that the reflection looked like a naked woman and, this being Cheney and this being the Internet Age, they immediately shared that thought with the world."

Me, I see Cheney's arm and hand, holding a fishing rod.
