While he wasn't a participant in writing of the infamous Rebuilding America's
Defenses document, he was already a member at that time. This document, which was an uber-imperialist's wet dream wishlist, called for a
technological transformation of the military and imperialist domination of Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian lands and regimes while highlight states
like Iraq and Iran as action item threats.
Pessimism was expressed in the manifesto when they complained that "the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely
to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."
It's funny they might say that, because on 9/11 they got just that, including a green light to exploit their Iraqi imperial ambitions. Since at least
16 memebers of PNAC are or were in the Bush administration, including brother Jeb Bush, it's of little surprise that they didn't ensure that "a new
Pearl Harbor" didn't happen. It's not like they didn't have some idea, as according to the 9/11 Commission Report the government had
ns of thousands if not hundreds of thousands" of terrorism warnings, yet GWB wasn't that concerned about terrorism.
Then on the night of 9/11, at 2:26AM, James Woolsey, a frontman stooge of American Imperialism, was already thumbing Iraq as a suspect sponser state
of the 9/11 attacks.
In the aftermath, PNAC's imperislism manifesto
d up reading like a prophecy chart come true, as they got their "New Pearl Harbor", and their 20 plus point list of technolgical
transformation, and their green light for ultra-neoimperialism including the invasion Iraq, and so on.
While it was known that Woolsey was again thumbing Iraq later that day, this new clip is the first time anyone thumbed Iraq on national TV. (In
propaganda) "you gotta keep repeating yourself for the truth to sink in". -GWB blogfiles.wfmu.org...
IgnoranceIsntBlisss is spot on with this thread. It’s high time someone shines the light on James Woolsey another one of the more Kafkaesque
figures of the day (9-11).
It’s always baffled me, how certain officials immediately blamed Iraq for 9-11 when not a single ‘highjacker’ was Iraqi. Not that it really
matters, since the highjackers, the passenger lists and the plane crashes were all make-believe anyways. (Yes, I’m one of those dreaded
‘no-airplaners’). No one seemed to notice or care that the entire Al-Qaida organizational chart — released two days after 9-11 — didn’t tie
in with whom we were placing the blame on (Saddam Hussein).
Woolsey: Former CIA director, PNAC member, member of Rumsfeld's Defense Policy Board. This is the guy - we should've known war with Iraq was
inevitable just two hours after 9/11 when he said that. Since then he's let us know other cool things like that we have more coming because we are in
WORLD WAR IV! (WWIII was the Cold War). It will last another 20 years or so he said in 2003, shorter than WWIII but longer than I or II. Google it,
it's scary because he's probably right...
Great clip! My respect for Bamford just went up again. He's referring to a report some neocons wrote up for Israel in 1996:
"A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm."
Principal authors included Richard Perle and Doug Feith.
I looked into this a while back -
it was targeted at the incoming right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the same year Perle was directing the Jerusalem Post, and
sounded interesting, so I located a copy in PDF format here.
By “a clean break,” the authors seem to have meant a clean break with the past. It advised financial reforms so Israel could become more
“mature” and independent of aid from Washington. It also counseled against accommodation of hostile Arab neighbors; the paper advocated teaming up
with Jordan and “removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq – an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right” but also serving to
destabilize nations in the region and open the way to regime change in Syria and elsewhere. Through a complex web of manipulation and political
maneuvering “Israel will not only contain its foes,” the report assured, “it will transcend them.”
This radical and reckless plan was looked at by Netanyahu but not openly acted on. Perle’s underlying message: “Israel has the opportunity to make
a clean break; it can forge a peace process and strategy based on an entirely new intellectual foundation, one that restores strategic initiative and
provides the nation the room to engage every possible energy on rebuilding Zionism.”
