Coral Re of Barbados, Starr Foundation Cooperative Research  Events Leading Up to the Invasion of Iraq, In his book, Machiavelli on Modern Leadership, neoconservative Michael Ledeen measures modern leaders against Machiavelli’s rules for leadership and concludes that “ e]ven after a half a millennium, Machiavelli’s advice to leaders is as contemporary as tomorrow.” Ledeen, 2000, pp. 185] He laments that contemporary Western leaders, “like their counterparts in the rest of the world, have fallen short of Machiavelli’s standards.” Ledeen, 2000, pp. 187] According to Ledeen, “ I]f new and more virtuous leaders do not emerge, it is only a matter of time before we are either dominated by our enemies or sink into a more profound crisis.” Ledeen, 2000, pp. 187] Such a situation, he explains, would put the US in the “same desperate crisis that drove Machiavelli to call for a new dictator to set things aright.” He adds, “In either case, we need Machiavellian wisdom and leadership.” Ledeen, 2000, pp. 188] Throughout the book Ledeen highlights certain qualities that he believes make strong leaders. A leader “must be prepared to fight at all times,” he writes, and must be of “manly vigor.” Women, he says, are rarely strong leaders because women generally cannot achieve virtue for they lack the “physical wherewithal and the passionate desire to achieve” military glory. To Ledeen, the ends may justify the means. In some situations, “ i]n order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to ‘enter into evil.’” Ledeen, 2000, pp. 90] According to Ledeen, the Christian god sanctions this view. Machiavelli, he notes approvingly, wrote: “I believe that the greatest good that one can do, and the most gratifying to God is that which one does for one’s country.” Ledeen thus adds: “Since it is the highest good, the defense of the country is one of those extreme situation in which a leader is justified in committing evil.” Ledeen, 2000, pp. 117] Ledeen: "Chalabi is my friend" NRO War and Piece Did Chalabi trick the tricksters and deliver Iraq's Shiites to Iran?   Mussolini, search internet on Ledeen, Mussolini .Ledeen: "Chalabi is my friend" NRO Chalabi at 2004 State of the Union address   NRO The Chalabi Story and copy   and also Rumsfeld and Chalabi,  Miller and Chalabi Why is Bush equating Iraq War opponents with Nazi appeasers?  And what is the purpose of spinning the 'Islamo-fascist' into the mainstream press dialogue?

Ledeen has long ties to Italian intelligence agency operatives and has spanned the globe to bring the world the constant variety of what he calls “creative destruction” to build democracies. He makes the other neocons appear passive. He brought the Reagan administration together with the Iranian arms dealer who dragged the country through Iran-Contra, and shares with his close friend Karl Rove a personal obsession with Machiavelli. Ledeen, who is almost rabidly anti-Arab, famously told The Washington Post that Karl Rove told him, “Any time you have a good idea, tell me.” Rense / EIR "Who was passing secrets to Chalabi: Among the leading candidates to join convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Jay Pollard in the hoosegow, or at least, in the hall of shame, are: Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith; Near East South Asia/Office of Special Plans head William Luti; Feith deputies Harold Rhode, Abram Shulsky and Michael Rubin; Office of Special Plans staffer Col. Bill Brunner; and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. All have been known to maintain intimate ties to Chalabi. Another Irangate ``veteran'' and Chalabi booster, Elliott Abrams, who was convicted of perjury (and later pardoned by President George H.W. Bush), was named the top NSC official on the Middle East in late 2002, a post he still holds."

According to a source in the Italian embassy, Patrick J.

Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) asked for an FBI investigation into the papers’ origins. Not long after, Sen. Roberts agreed to join him in the request.  It was on the basis of the subsequently launched FBI investigation that Roberts’s committee specifically ruled out any investigation of the origins of the Niger forgeries or anything else about them before they came into U.S. government hands in late 2002 (see Senate Select Intelligence Committee report, Page 57). But as I wrote in my July 28 column on this page, that investigation appears to have been cursory at best.  Key players received only scant interviews. And the man at the center of the scam — Rocco Martino, the Italian “security consultant” who attempted to sell the forged documents to a reporter in Rome in late 2002 — was never interviewed at all.  FBI sources have told reporters that there’s been no interview with Martino because they haven’t been able to secure the Italian government’s permission to speak to him. But Martino twice traveled to the United States in the summer of 2004, and no attempt was made to speak with him then either. American Prospect "In the flurry of news reports that followed, the scope of the FBI investigation seemed potentially enormous. Citing senior U.S. officials, The Washington Post reported that “the FBI is examining whether highly classified material from the National Security Agency … was also forwarded to Israel,” and that the investigation of Franklin was “coincidental” to that broader FBI probe. Time magazine reported that Franklin had been enlisted by the FBI to place a series of monitored telephone calls (scripted by the FBI) to get possible evidence on others, including allies of Ahmad Chalabi, a favorite of Pentagon neoconservatives. Chalabi was alleged to have told his Iranian intelligence contacts that the United States had broken their communications codes -- a breach that prompted a break in U.S. support for Chalabi last spring -- and the FBI wanted to know who had shared that highly classified information with Chalabi. What’s more, an independent expert on Israeli espionage said he had been interviewed by the FBI in June and in several follow-up calls, and that the scope of the senior FBI investigators’ questioning was broad and extremely detailed."

Edelman, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, holds the same position that Douglas Feith held when he ran OSP at the Pentagon in the lead-up to the Iraq war.  Moreover, sources say that the Iranian Directorate is staffed with many of the same people, including OSP’s former director Abram Shulsky, and receives expert analysis from such controversial figures as Project for the New American Century member Reuel Marc Gerecht, who by all accounts was a failure as a CIA field officer. It also includes military personnel such as Ladan Archin, who appears to be serving in the Larry Franklin analyst role among a sea of think-tank operatives and neoconservative war hawks. Guardian  "An urgent investigation has been launched in Washington into whether Iran played a role in manipulating the US into the Iraq war by passing on bogus intelligence through Ahmad Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress, it emerged yesterday. Some intelligence officials now believe that Iran used the hawks in the Pentagon and the White House to get rid of a hostile neighbour, and pave the way for a Shia-ruled Iraq.  According to a US intelligence official, the CIA has hard evidence that Mr Chalabi and his intelligence chief, Aras Karim Habib, passed US secrets to Tehran, and that Mr Habib has been a paid Iranian agent for several years, involved in passing intelligence in both directions.  The CIA has asked the FBI to investigate Mr Chalabi's contacts in the Pentagon to discover how the INC acquired sensitive information that ended up in Iranian hands.  The implications are far-reaching. Mr Chalabi and Mr Habib were the channels for much of the intelligence on Iraqi weapons on which Washington built its case for war.  "It's pretty clear that Iranians had us for breakfast, lunch and dinner," said an intelligence source in Washington yesterday.

Ghorbanifar is a storied figure who played a key role in embroiling the Reagan administration in the Iran-Contra affair.

In 1984 he got George Bush Sr to appoint Iranian arms merchant and Iranian/Israeli double-agent Manucher Ghorbanifar as a middleman in the scandalous Iran-Contra affair. Ledeen has been a fixture in Washington and Israel ever since, advocating a modern version of the Crusades against Islamic nations. Based on what he has said and written, I believe Ledeen is insane. Michael Ledeen, Rove's "brain," is one of the leading advocates for a US attack on Iran. The Washington Post quoted Ledeen as saying that Rove told him, "Anytime you have a good idea, tell me."

His "brain," Rove, quickly enlisted Ledeen to trump up a causus belli. EARLY 2000: ROCCO MARTINO AND THE FRENCH CONNECTION Rocco Martino is a 66-year-old Italian gentleman SEE PHOTO who worked on and off for the Italian SISMI (analogous to the CIA) for many years and who also peddled the same information to various spy organizations and publications -- a convicted felon and international stool pigeon, just the kind of person Ledeen's associates needed. After being fired by SISMI (for receiving stolen checks, among other things), he convinced the French intelligence in 2000 that he knew all about Africa and the trafficking of conventional and nonconventional arms. To avoid stepping on the toes of Italian intelligence, the French gave him a contact, or handler, in Brussels. Martino's handler in Brussels asked him to obtain every type of news or reference to contraband uranium from Niger ("NYE-jer) -- a former French colony in the Sahara desert (not to be confused with ex-British Nigeria in W. Africa), where mining was under the jurisdiction of two companies controlled by the gigantic French mining company Cogema. #file_1# Martino soon was knocking at the door of the embassy of Niger in Rome, where he met an Italian functionary (a "lady," by most reports -- but this was no lady, as we shall see). Martino provided the French with documents showing that Iraq may have been planning to expand trade with Niger. In fact, the first set of documents did not refer to uranium, and the trade plans were probably the typical sort of relationship Arab oil states had with a whole range of third-world countries. Martino was surprised when he saw that the French immediately jumped to the wrong conclusion and thought that the documents indicated an Iraqi interest in uranium. (We now know that Iraq had no nuclear program.) "We need additional confirmation and more detailed information," said the French secret service. Martino set out to satisfy his French patrons with additional documents. JANUARY 2001 BREAK-IN AT NIGER EMBASSY At night, between the first and second of the January 2001, a mysterious thief came to the embassy of Niger in Rome and into the residence of the counselor in charge. It turned out that some letterhead and seals (see photocopy) were missing. A second dossier on Niger-Iraq trade soon came into Martino's hands, one that included references to uranium trafficking. Martino claims he got it from embassy personnel and that he thought it was authentic. Martino passed it on to the French secret service, who had paid for it, and also to Panorama a magazine owned by Bush ally and Italian president Silvio Berlusconi], which assessed it by dispatching a female reporter to Niger. Panorama also turned the file over to the US Embassy in Rome for cross-checking in the US. The female journalist soon told Martino that the trip to Niger had not produced any real confirmation, and also the French confirmed to Martino that the reports he had passed on to them were groundless. In other words, Bush's war rationale was debunked way back in 2001 by amateur and professional sleuths. Furthermore, it was a very amateurish forgery, not likely produced through official channels by any state intelligence agency with their vast resources. However, it was soon resuscitated as the Bush administration, in its first year, ramped up its public relations campaign for war.   ROME MEETING IN DECEMBER 2001 Michael Ledeen organized a meeting in Rome to gather evidence to support the planned war. Present were: 1. Michael Ledeen, Karl Rove's foreign policy advisor and organizer of the meeting 2. Nicolo Pollari, head of the the Italian equivalent of the CIA, the SISMI 3. Italy's Minister of Defense, Antonio Martino (no relation apparently to the spy Rocco Martino), Pollari's boss 4. Larry Franklin, an American who presently is being prosecuted in the US for giving classified information to an Israeli front group, AIPC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) -- which some would call "spying," even though he has not been charged with espionage 5. Harold Rhode: member of Dick Cheney's Office of Special Plans, protege of Ledeen, go-between with Iraqi exile and CIA asset (at the time) Ahmed Chalabi.   Ledeen already had a longstanding friendship with Francesco Pazienza, an Italian felon and forger who had been kicked out of the official Italian intelligence organization SISMI but who had found a new home in the renegade intelligence agency P-2 (Propaganda Due). Pazienza apparently was not present but definitely was known to Italian intelligence agents, including Rocco Martino, as well as to Ledeen. Ledeen also was a personal friend of Pollari, who, like Ledeen, is a master of the card game bridge (Ledeen writes columns on it). There are close ties between Pollari's official intelligence organization, SISMI, and Pazienza's unnofficial one, P-2. In fact, P-2 recruits from SISMI. This little group dusted off Martino's discredited second dossier on Iraq-Niger trade, with the uranium references. The Bush administration now had its causus belli. CAUSUS BELLI: A PIECE OF CRAP SEE PHOTOCOPY] #file_2# The accompanying figure shows a bit of the cobbled-up intelligence report on stolen letterheads, forged by amateurs -- most likely Ledeen's friend, Francesco Panzienza. This document, which can be viewed at the Israeli site http://www.4law.co.il/Le838k.html, is the "evidence" on which George Bush sent almost two thousand young Americans and untold thousands of Iraqi civilians to their deaths.   SPRING 2002: JOE WILSON TO NIGER Former US Ambassador (to Gabon) Joseph Wilson made the trip, apparently at the behest of the CIA, to determine the authenticity of the charges in Martino's documents, even though the CIA already could see they were forgeries. Even the Panorama reporter could have saved him the trouble. Wilson reported back to the CIA that there was no proof that Iraq had sought uranium in Niger. The US government knew there was no proof.

Bush soon began to drive in the nail using the same argument. Remember, Martino had delivered the phony dossier this was based on to the US embassy in Rome over a year before. The US State Department and CIA rejected it and even Panorama had debunked it. The Pentagon, too, knew it was false, of course, but the Wolfowitz-Feith-Perle Defense Policy Board axis plus Bush and Cheney and their respective aides, Karl Rove and I. Lewis Libby (both now subjects of interest to US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and his grand jury in Washington, DC), went with it anyway. THE REST IS HISTORY: "The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein... ...recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." Sixteen little words in Bush's January 2003 State of the Union message that will be remembered in history with more honorable presidential words like, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself" (FDR). Bush was going on the forged documents procured by Rocco Martino, debunked by all pertinent experts, and debunked by Joseph Wilson. The US overcame Iraqi opposition -- temporarily (resistance became "suicide," now wonders, for whom?) -- mainly by bombing civilian structures rather than fighting, beginning on March 19, 2003 Wilson's outraged response to using, for murder, evidence he had debunked got his family, or at least his wife, targeted by that amoral husk of a man, Karl Rove, who, along with I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby (Cheney's chief aide) outed Valerie Wilson to Robert Novak, Judith Miller (the jailed New York Times reporter and pro-war hawk), Matthew Cooper (Time's reporter who has jeopardized Rove in a criminal investigation), and numerous other journalists. Most, like Miller and Cooper, wisely resisted Rove's bait.

Caption: "The creatures step out of the tripods." Maybe it'll help to pay off those student loans -- huh, Michael?   LEDEEN FELLOW-TRAVELER FRANKLIN FACES A COURT TRIAL At Ledeen's (Rove's brain) meeting with Italian intelligence in December 2001 was one Larry Franklin. The FBI caught Franklin, 58 -- a Pentagon analyst on Iran and an Air Force Reserve colonel -- meeting two agents of AIPAC, Israel's US "lobby," in an Alexandria, VA, restaurant in June 2003. AIPAC employees -- including AIPAC agents at the meeting, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman -- had been under FBI surveillance for a couple of years. The FBI was surprised by Franklin showing up and began investigating him, too. The FBI arrested Franklin, on May 4, 2005, for illegally disclosing highly classified information to AIPAC -- spying for AIPAC, in other words. He is free on bond and is expected to plead innocent at his trial. Why hasn't the FBI arrested anyone at the AIPAC? Who in the Bush administration is blocking justice in this case? For that matter, why hasn't the FBI interviewed Rocco Martino, the acknowledged and admitted procurer of the phony Niger uranium documents? They are known to be investigating the phony documents. The United States has had no qualms about getting audacious in Italy by having the CIA abduct an Egyptian cleric, Abu Omar, off the streets of Milan in February 2003, for "exceptional rendering," aka "torture," in Egypt. This open violation of Italian sovereignty was supervised by the CIA's station chief in Milan, Robert Seldon Lady, formerly of the New Orleans area. Lady Is No "lady": ROBERT SELDON LADY It is my belief that the "Italian functionary," or "a lady," that Martino referred to was actually a Lady, Robert Seldon Lady Sr, the same man who headed up the torture abduction of Abu Omar. Italian prosecutor Armando Spataro has just obtained arrrest warrants for 6 more CIA spies in addition to the original 13 that included Robert Lady, in connection with the abduction. Robert Seldon Lady, 51, lived in Abita Springs, Lousiana, until 2001, when he left for the Milan post. He still has an address in New Orleans, according to Cryptome http://cryptome.org/lady-eyeball.htm. He and his wife Martha own a villa in the Italian countryside near Penango (Asti) and Turin, where they hoped to retire before he went on the lam. Born in Honduras, he was an affable New York City cop in the 80s who infiltrated leftist groups. He is something of an electronics hacker (at least of cell phones). And now he is a wanted felon in Europe. During the operation, Lady apparently worked directly with the commander of the 31st Security Police Squadron, Lt. Col. Joseph Romano, USAF, at the Aviano Air Base in Italy. Lt. Col. Romano, who currently works at the Pentagon, also is sought for interviewing by Italian prosecutors. At the time, Romano worked under Brig Gen R. Michael Worden, commander of the 31st Fighter Wing, who also should have to answer some questions. The Italian prosecutor could release the photographs of the American kidnap-torture perps at any time. This case -- Robert Lady's kidnapping of Abu Omar -- could become a very big story because of its possible effects on relations between nations.
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM]   source: Jewish Week   fair use Trial Of Ex-AIPAC Staffers (Rosen, Weissman) Postponed Rice subpoena allowed in AIPAC case as judge pushes trial date to August. Ron Kampeas JTA Alexandria, Va. Two former AIPAC lobbyists say Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was their informant on sensitive national security matters. The claim, laid out in a courtroom here last Friday, intensified the drama surrounding a trial that could further roil a Washington political establishment already consumed by cases involving “official” and “unofficial” leaks. The trial date, originally scheduled to begin April 25, has now been set for Aug. 7, even as the judge in the case continues to suggest the case might not go to trial at all. In last week’s pretrial hearing, lawyers for Steve Rosen, the pro-Israel lobby’s former foreign policy director, and Keith Weissman, its former Iran analyst, persuaded federal Judge T.S. Ellis III to allow a subpoena for the secretary of state and three other current and former Middle East policy officials. Rosen and Weissman were indicted last August on charges that they relayed classified information to fellow AIPAC staffers, journalists and diplomats at the Israeli Embassy in Washington. AIPAC fired Rosen and Weissman in March 2005, saying their actions did not comport with the group’s practices. Federal prosecutors have made clear that AIPAC is not suspected of wrongdoing. The judge continued to express grave doubts about the government’s case, sympathizing with defense claims that it could impinge on free speech rights, and that it lacked precedent. When Kevin DiGregory, the lead prosecutor, pointed out that the First Amendment had never been cited in a similar case, Ellis chided him, saying, “Well, no case has been like this one.” Setting out a pretrial schedule, Ellis pointedly would not count out a dismissal before the start of the trial and several times qualified prospective dates, saying “if there is going to be a trial.” The indictment handed down against Rosen and Weissman alleges that they solicited classified information from mid-level government officials, including Larry Franklin, a former Pentagon Iran analyst who pleaded guilty in January to leaking information to the two defendants. Defense lawyers have contended that such exchanges were routine and extended throughout government. In addition to Rice, the slate of 10 witnesses they subpoenaed last month included: Stephen Hadley, the national security adviser to the White House; Elliott Abrams, Hadley’s deputy; William Burns, the current ambassador to Moscow and formerly the top U.S. envoy to the Middle East; David Satterfield, formerly Burns’ deputy and currently the deputy ambassador to Iraq; and Gen. Anthony Zinni, the top envoy to Middle East peace talks in 2001-2002. At the time, Bush administration officials dismissed the subpoenas against Rice, who is Bush’s former national security adviser, and the others as a “stunt.” But at the pre-trial hearing April 21, Rosen’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell said Rice had not merely been Rosen’s interlocutor, she had leaked information identical to and at times more sensitive than examples cited in the indictment. In addition, Lowell said, the information Rice provided was more “volatile” than the information described in the indictment. He also suggested the meeting with Rice took place before the meetings with the alleged co-conspirators. Lowell would not elaborate on what information he was referring to. The indictment outlines exchanges with Franklin, Satterfield and Kenneth Pollack, a national security council staffer during the Clinton administration, that covered topics including U.S. policy toward Iran; and Iranian and al-Qaeda involvement in terrorist acts. The claim that Rice was an informant caught the prosecution off guard, but Ellis said it was not incumbent upon the defendants to warn the prosecution of new evidence. Lowell asked for an additional meeting with the judge — with no prosecutors present — to further describe the testimony he anticipated from Rice and others. Ellis said he looked forward to “a lot of juicy information.” Ellis had to rule on the request for subpoenas because four of the subpoenas — for Rice, Burns, Satterfield and Zinni — fell under special rules of the district court in Alexandria, Va., that require subpoenas for Cabinet members, ambassadors and generals to be approved by the presiding judge. Lowell said the other six subpoenas had already been sent to the prospective witnesses. Rice’s testimony is not yet guaranteed. The State Department must clear subpoenas to its staff, and witnesses have a right to ask for subpoenas to be squashed. But Lowell made it clear he would not let the government off the hook, likening this case to the recent controversy over leaks on the Iraq war President Bush has defended as “authorized” and those he has attacked as illegal. Also at the April 21 hearing, called on a few days notice, the judge sided with the defense’s claim that the case is unprecedented. Government lawyers have striven to show that prosecution under a 1917 statute that criminalizes the receipt of classified information is not unprecedented. Rosen’s lawyer, Lowell, said the government had failed to show true precedent and had instead “cut and pasted” elements of four or five unrelated cases to establish precedent. Ellis agreed, calling Lowell’s arguments “substantial.” “Mr. Lowell is absolutely right. It is an unprecedented case. It is novel,” he said.  It was not all good news for the defense. Lowell wanted Ellis to order depositions from three Israeli diplomats who allegedly received information from Rosen and Weissman. One of the diplomats is Naor Gilon, the political officer at the Israeli Embassy until last summer. The defense has been unable to persuade the diplomats to voluntarily comply. Ellis refused, saying he did not see the point because his orders carried no weight in Israel, where the diplomats now reside. Lowell acknowledged as much, but apparently hoped a formal order from the judge would embarrass the Israelis into volunteering; ever since the Jonathan Pollard spy case in the late 1980s, Israeli officials want to be seen as cooperative with American legal cases. n   Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism By Dr. Lawrence Britt, Source Free Inquiry Top,  Ledeen fascism home,  page 1  2, 3   4,   5,   6
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each: 1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays. 2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc. 3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc. 4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized. 5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution. 6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common. 7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses. 8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions. 9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite. 10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed. 11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked. 12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations. 13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders. 14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Boston.com The 'Concrete Thought' of Carl Schmitt and U.S. Neoconservatism as seen through Readings of Kenneth Burke and Jacques Derrida   EXCERPT: "Manifest destiny has been described as a ‘nationalistic theology’, which according to Tuveson (1968: 92-3) ‘implies that simple nationalism, the pride of a new and ambitious new nation, with many virtues and advantages, spontaneously generated a religious justification for its desire to acquire new and rich territories.’ Although the term was first used in the US in 1845 (ibid.92-3), the concept behind it, which Tuveson describes as an ideology based partly on self-interest and chauvinism, existed long before that. (Ibid. 125)53 It remains relevant, as the present form of neoconservatism is very much a product of the search for a new moral mission for the US to replace the Cold War. Michael Ledeen, for one, prefers ‘neo-Manifest Destinarianism’ to the neoconservative label. (Dorrien, 2004: 2) Despite the US not being unique in believing in its own uniqueness, Tuveson argues that the US sense of mission takes at least two conflicting forms. First, citizens have a duty to develop and protect their land as a refuge to inspire others to carry out similar revolutions against ancient tyrannies and injustices.54 On the other hand, the ‘American mission’ has a second, conflicting form, requiring the population to be constantly on guard against the intrusion of evil and corruption from outside enemies: this vigilance was intended ‘not only to make a greater country out of what we have but to form the kind of nation that would save the world.’ (Tuveson 1968: 131-3) He finds the combination of the two dangerous: ‘to assume that what is good for America is good for the world, that saving the United States is saving mankind, is to open up a large area of temptation.’ (Ibid. 132) This warning is still relevant; the neoconservative Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was founded on the beliefs that that ‘American leadership is good both for America and for the world; that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle; and that too few political leaders today are making the case for global leadership." Friedrich Nietzsche  Wikipedia During the interbellum, certain Nazis employed a highly selective reading of Nietzsche's work to advance their ideology, notably Alfred Baeumler in his reading of The Will to Power. The era of Nazi rule (1933 – 1945) saw Nietzsche's writings widely studied in German (and, after 1938, Austrian) schools and universities. The Nazis viewed Nietzsche as one of their "founding fathers". Although there exist few — if any — similarities between Nietzsche's views and Nazism (see political views), phrases like "the will to power" became common in Nazi circles. The wide popularity of Nietzsche among Nazis stemmed in part from the endeavors of his sister, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, the editor of Nietzsche's work after his 1889 breakdown, and an eventual Nazi sympathizer. Nietzsche himself thoroughly disapproved of his sister's anti-Semitic views"  see Ledeen NRO  and Free Republic search Islamic fascism, Ledeen American Conservative "Ledeen’s conviction that the Right is as revolutionary as the Left derives from his youthful interest in Italian fascism. In 1975, Ledeen published an interview, in book form, with the Italian historian Renzo de Felice (Wikipedia), a man he greatly admires. It caused a great controversy in Italy. Ledeen later made clear that he relished the ire of the left-wing establishment precisely because “De Felice was challenging the conventional wisdom of Italian Marxist historiography, which had always insisted that fascism was a reactionary movement.” What de Felice showed, by contrast, was that Italian fascism was both right-wing and revolutionary. Ledeen had himself argued this very point in his book, Universal Fascism, published in 1972. That work starts with the assertion that it is a mistake to explain the support of fascism by millions of Europeans “solely because they had been hypnotized by the rhetoric of gifted orators and manipulated by skilful propagandists.” “It seems more plausible,” Ledeen argued, “to attempt to explain their enthusiasm by treating them as believers in the rightness of the fascist cause, which had a coherent ideological appeal to a great many people.” For Ledeen, as for the lifelong fascist theoretician and practitioner, Giuseppe Bottai, that appeal lay in the fact that fascism was “the Revolution of the 20th century.” Ledeen: from his book: War Against the Terror Masters, "Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity, which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace. Seeing America undo traditional societies, they fear us, for they do not wish to be undone. They cannot feel secure so long as we are there, for our very existence—our existence, not our politics—threatens their legitimacy. They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission. Wikipedia Gabrieli D' Annunzio  "D'Annunzio is often seen as a precursor of the ideals and techniques of Italian fascism. His own explicit political ideals emerged in Fiume when he coauthored a constitution with anarcho-syndicalist Alceste de Ambris, the Charter of Carnaro. De Ambris provided the legal and political framework, to which d'Annunzio added his skills as a poet. De Ambris was the leader of a group of Italian seamen who had mutinied and then given their vessel to the service of d'Annunzio. The constitution established a corporatist state, with nine corporations to represent the different sectors of the economy (workers, employers, professionals), and a tenth (d'Annunzio's invention) to represent the "superior" human beings (heroes, poets, prophets, supermen). The Carta also declared that music was the fundamental principle of the state.  It was rather the culture of dictatorship that Benito Mussolini imitated and learned from d'Annunzio; his method of government in Fiume, the economics of the corporate state; stage tricks; large emotive nationalistic public rituals; the Roman salute; rhetorical questions to the crowd; blackshirted followers, the Arditi, with their disciplined, bestial responses and strongarm repression of dissent. (1) D'Annunzio was said to have originated the practice of forcibly dosing opponents with large amounts of castor oil to humiliate, disable or kill them. This practice became a common tool of Mussolini's blackshirts. D'Annunzio advocated an expansionist Italian foreign policy and applauded the invasion of Ethiopia."  and see Ledeen biography of Annunzio  Annunzio: The First Duce Amazon.com Boston.com "During the Reagan years, he (Ledeen) served as an adviser to Secretary of State Alexander Haig and national security adviser Robert McFarlane, in which capacity he helped arrange meetings between the US government and Iranian arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar, thus becoming a minor figure in the Iran-Contra saga. These days, according to The Washington Post, he talks frequently with Bush strategy guru Karl Rove. In the current debate over "regime change" in Iran, Ledeen is a major voice for an aggressive US policy to overthrow the mullahs, which he sees as but one small part of his vision of an American-led "global democratic revolution."

However, the links between Schmitz, a former John Birch Society member who was ousted because of his extremism and who was detested by President Richard Nixon, and the Bushes go beyond sharing right-wing political beliefs. John G. Schmitz, Jr., the attorney son of the late Congressman Schmitz, was deputy counsel to President George H. W. Bush. He refused to testify before Iran-Contra Independent Counsel Judge Lawrence Walsh. Schmitz also clerked for then U.S. Appellate Court Judge Antonin Scalia (CNN Transcripts) from 1983 to 1984.

Letourneau gave birth to a daughter. Letourneau later married the student.  The elder Schmitz, the 1972 presidential candidate of the American Independent Party (the party that was later disowned by its 1968 presidential candidate, Alabama Governor George C. Wallace), died in January 2001, the same month George W. Bush was sworn in as President. Like Bush, Schmitz was fond of making Hitler-like salutes. Columnist Michael Barone wrote about Schmitz's presidential candidacy, Schmitz] "distinguished himself with his direct talk and 'puckishly humorous' wit." Schmitz suggested that he had no problem with Nixon going to China, he just objected to his coming back. Schmitz accused Nixon of being backed by Moscow and Peking. As for Democratic candidate George McGovern, Schmitz accused him of being endorsed by Hanoi and the Manson Family. Schmitz was endorsed by the neo-Nazi Liberty Lobby, a group that promoted Holocaust denial and whose founders had links to George Lincoln Rockwell's American Nazi Party. After George Wallace was shot in 1972 by Arthur Herman Bremer, Schmitz condemned Wallace for reverting back to the Democratic Party. It was later discovered that Bremer had strong contacts in Milwaukee with the John Birch Society, a group with which Schmitz had strong links. In 1982, Schmitz, a California state senator, was under investigation by child protective service workers. A 13-month old baby boy, later discovered to have been fathered by Schmitz and his German political science student at Santa Ana College, was found to have had hair tied around his penis to the point the organ was almost severed.  Fellow Congressmen John Schmitz and George H.

Beeman, Pacific News Service. Posted May 8, 2003. From "creative destruction" to "total war," the guiding beliefs of the most aggressive foreign policymakers in the Bush administration may originate in the works of an influential yet rarely seen neoconservative.  Editor's Note: This is a revised and corrected version of this story. The earlier version contained a quote that was erroneously attributed to Michael Ledeen. Most Americans have never heard of Michael Ledeen, but if the United States ends up in an extended shooting war throughout the Middle East, it will be largely due to his inspiration. A fellow at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, Ledeen holds a Ph.D. in History and Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin. He is a former employee of the Pentagon, the State Department and the National Security Council. As a consultant working with NSC head Robert McFarlane, he was involved in the transfer of arms to Iran during the Iran-Contra affair -- an adventure that he documented in the book "Perilous Statecraft: An Insider's Account of the Iran-Contra Affair." His most influential book is last year's "The War Against the Terror Masters: Why It Happened. Where We Are Now. How We'll Win." Ledeen's ideas are repeated daily by such figures as Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz. His views virtually define the stark departure from American foreign policy philosophy that existed before the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001. He basically believes that violence in the service of the spread of democracy is America's manifest destiny. Consequently, he has become the philosophical legitimator of the American occupation of Iraq. Now Michael Ledeen is calling for regime change beyond Iraq. In an address entitled "Time to Focus on Iran -- The Mother of Modern Terrorism," for the policy forum of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) on April 30, he declared, "the time for diplomacy is at an end; it is time for a free Iran, free Syria and free Lebanon." With a group of other conservatives, Ledeen recently set up the Center for Democracy in Iran (CDI), an action group focusing on producing regime change in Iran. Quotes from Ledeen's works reveal a peculiar set of beliefs about American attitudes toward violence. "Change -- above all violent change -- is the essence of human history," he proclaims in his book, "Machiavelli on Modern Leadership: Why Machiavelli's Iron Rules Are as Timely and Important Today as Five Centuries Ago." In an influential essay in the National Review Online he asserts, "Creative destruction is our middle name. We do it automatically ... it is time once again to export the democratic revolution." Ledeen has become the driving philosophical force behind the neoconservative movement and the military actions it has spawned. His 1996 book, "Freedom Betrayed; How the United States Led a Global Democratic Revolution, Won the Cold War, and Walked Away," reveals the basic neoconservative obsession: the United States never "won" the Cold War; the Soviet Union collapsed of its own weight without a shot being fired. Had the United States truly won, democratic institutions would be sprouting everywhere the threat of Communism had been rife. Iraq, Iran and Syria are the first and foremost nations where this should happen, according to Ledeen. The process by which this should be achieved is a violent one, termed "total war," a concept pioneered by the 19th century Prussian general, Karl von Clausewitz in his classic book "On War." Ledeen's take on this idea is wedded to ideology. In summarizing his book "The War Against the Terror Masters" on the American Enterprise Institute Web site, he writes: "We wage total war because we fight in the name of an idea, and ideas either triumph or fail ... totally." In his reckoning, force is the only reliable strategy to enforce our ideology on our enemies. In the same summary he claims, drawing inspiration from Machiavelli: "We can lead by the force of high moral example ... but] fear is much more reliable, and lasts longer. Once we show that we are capable of dealing out terrible punishment to our enemies, our power will be far greater." Consequently, Ledeen has excoriated both the State Department and the United Nations for their preference for diplomatic solutions to conflict; and the CIA for equivocating on evidence that would condemn "America's enemies" and justify militant action. "No one I know wants to wage war on Iran and Syria, but I believe there is now a clear recognition that we must defend ourselves against them," Ledeen wrote on May 6 in the Toronto Globe and Mail. Though he appears on conservative outlets like the Fox television network, Ledeen has not been singled out for much media attention by the Bush administration, despite his
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] extensive influence in Washington. His views may be perceived as too extreme for most Americans, who prefer to think of the United States as pursuing violence only when attacked and manifesting primarily altruistic goals toward other nations. Clearly a final decision has not been made on whether the United States will continue military action in Iran, Syria and Lebanon. But Ledeen has a notable track record. He was calling for attacks against Iraq throughout the 1990s, and the U.S. invasion on March 19 was a total fulfillment of his proposals. His attacks against the CIA and the State Department have contributed to the exclusion of these intelligence bodies from any effective decision making on Iraq. His attacks on Iran, even when Iran was assisting the United States, helped keep the Bush administration from seeking any rapprochement with Tehran. Were it in Ledeen's hands, we would invade Iran today. Given both his fervor and his influence over the men with the guns, Americans should not be surprised if Ledeen's pronouncements come true.

Indictments are coming Posted by: reader at Aug 06, 2005 00:25 Michael Ledeen is now a direct target of the Grand Juries "August 4, 2005 -- TWO FORMER AIPAC OFFICIALS INDICTED, ADDITIONAL CHARGES AGAINST FRANKLIN, INDICTMENT DISCUSSES A SENIOR FELLOW OF A WASHINGTON, DC THINK TANK" INVOLVED IN THE CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY, REPORTEDLY THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE (AEI). The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Paul McNulty announced the indictments of two former officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) at a press briefing this afternoon in Alexandria, Virginia. McNulty termed the indictments a "major national security prosecution." Steve Rosen, former AIPAC policy director and Keith Weismann, an Iran analyst for AIPAC, were indicted and further criminal charges were brought against former Pentagon and Defense Intelligence Agency employee Larry Franklin, a Colonel in the Air Force Reserve. Rosen and Weismann were charged with illegally receiving classified material. Franklin was charged with illegally passing classified information to Rosen." "The one key sentence in McNulty's press release is the involvement of known and unknown persons to communicate classified information to an agent or representative of a foreign government (Israel). These are referred to in the indictment as Foreign Officials 1, 2, and 3. (FO1, FO-2, FO-3). It is also clear that the FBI had Rosen and Weismann under electronic surveillance since at least 1999. The indictment states that Rosen had passed to an Israeli agent U.S. "code word protected intelligence" concerning terrorist activities in Central Asia in April 1999. In another intercept, Weismann told the same Israeli agent that he had heard that a "Secret FBI, classified FBI report" had been prepared on the Khobar Tower bombing in Saudi Arabia. In December 2000, six days before the Supreme Court awarded the presidency of the United States to George W. Bush, Rosen and Weissman met with a "U.S. Government official" (USGO-1). It is unclear whether the official was a member of the Clinton administration. Following the meeting, Rosen gave classified information to a member of the media concerning "classified strategy options against a Middle East country and internal United States government deliberations on those options." In January 2002, Rosen met with another U.S. government official (USGO-2) and received classified information that was sent to other AIPAC employees in a memo. During the next several months, Rosen continued to discuss classified information with USGO-2 and an unnamed Pentagon official, the latter referring Rosen to Franklin. Rosen then established a liaison with Franklin. Rosen told Franklin at a meeting in February 2003 that he would try and secure a job at the National Security Council for Franklin so that he would be "by the elbow of the President." In March 2003, Rosen discussed a classified internal policy document concerning Iran with a "senior fellow of a Washington, DC think tank." Sources familiar with the investigation have reported the think tank is the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). In June 2003, Franklin told Weissman that he had a friend in the CIA from whom he could obtain a copy of the classified Iran policy document. In October 2003, Franklin had a meeting with FO3 in which they discussed the fact that work had ceased on the classified Iran policy document. In July 2004, Franklin began cooperatng with the FBI and passed classified CIA information to Weismann as part of the continuing FBI investigation. Some of the information concerned a "foreign government's covert actions in Iraq." In August 2004, Rosen told Israeli agents that he and Weissman were under FBI investigation over the leaks from the Pentagon. It is important to note that the indictment states that the intelligence operation against the United States was a "conspiracy" involving U.S. government officials, AIPAC officials, and foreign agents (Israelis). The indictment also states that Iran's nuclear program was a primary focus of the espionage conspiracy. This investigation will continue to investigate the identities of unnamed "agents and representatives." As previously reported here, the AIPAC investigation has dovetailed with the White House CIA leak and the forgeries of the Niger documents. McNulty and Fitzgerald have intersected in their investigations. The senior fellow reference at a Washington think tank, reportedly AEI , and Iran are key. A check of AEI's web site shows Michael Ledeen, Karl Rove's chief foreign policy adviser , and Michael Rubin as the only two advertised resident Iran experts at AEI. It is also noteworthy that Lynne Cheney, the Vice President's wife, occupies a $125,000/year senior fellowship at AEI reportedly funded by Israeli Likud Party sources." Over 100 mistakes Mr.. President? Posted by: Accountability at Aug 06, 2005 01:45 Everyone please review this, as it is critical to understand the legal definition of fraud as the current Administration is liable. Additionally, This information is critical to building the solid core case to holding hearings immediately. There is no more important duty but this issue. For the sake of our Democracy, we have to stop this on-going criminal conspiracy immediately; or we will all be subject to further life threatening deception. Make no mistake, this deception leads nowhere but to death and total tyranny. If no one can hold this deception to account, America will be lost forever.

The Israeli Connection A few blocks off Pennsylvania Avenue, the FBI's eight-story Washington field office exudes all the charm of a maximum-security prison. Its curved roof is made of thick stainless steel, the bottom three floors are wrapped in granite and limestone, hydraulic bollards protect the ramp to the four-floor garage, and bulletproof security booths guard the entrance to the narrow lobby. On the fourth floor, like a tomb within a tomb, lies the most secret room in the $100 million concrete fortress—out-of-bounds even for special agents without an escort. Here, in the Language Services Section, hundreds of linguists in padded earphones sit elbow-to-elbow in long rows, tapping computer keyboards as they eavesdrop on the phone lines of foreign embassies and other high-priority targets in the nation's capital. At the far end of that room, on the morning of February 12th, 2003, a small group of eavesdroppers were listening intently for evidence of a treacherous crime. At the very moment that American forces were massing for an invasion of Iraq, there were indications that a rogue group of senior Pentagon officials were already conspiring to push the United States into another war—this time with Iran. A few miles away, FBI agents watched as Larry Franklin, an Iran expert and career employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency, drove up to the Ritz-Carlton hotel across the Potomac from Washington. A trim man of fifty-six, with a tangle of blond hair speckled gray, Franklin had left his modest home in Kearneysville, West Virginia, shortly before dawn that morning to make the eighty-mile commute to his job at the Pentagon. Since 2002, he had been working in the Office of Special Plans, a crowded warren of blue cubicles on the building's fifth floor. A secretive unit responsible for long-term planning and propaganda for the invasion of Iraq, the office's staffers referred to themselves as "the cabal." They reported to Douglas Feith, the third-most-powerful official in the Defense Department, helping to concoct the fraudulent intelligence reports that were driving America to war in Iraq. Just two weeks before, in his State of the Union address, President Bush had begun laying the groundwork for the invasion, falsely claiming that Saddam Hussein had the means to produce tens of thousands of biological and chemical weapons, including anthrax, botulinum toxin, sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent. But an attack on Iraq would require something that alarmed Franklin and other neoconservatives almost as much as weapons of mass destruction: detente with Iran. As political columnist David Broder reported in The Washington Post, moderates in the Bush administration were "covertly negotiating for Iran to stay quiet and offer help to refugees when we go into Iraq." Franklin—a devout neoconservative who had been brought into Feith's office because of his political beliefs—was hoping to undermine those talks. As FBI agents looked on, Franklin entered the restaurant at the Ritz and joined two other Americans who were also looking for ways to push the U.S. into a war with Iran. One was Steven Rosen, one of the most influential lobbyists in Washington. Sixty years old and nearly bald, with dark eyebrows and a seemingly permanent frown, Rosen was director of foreign-policy issues at Israel's powerful lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Seated next to Rosen was AIPAC's Iran expert, Keith Weissman. He and Rosen had been working together closely for a decade to pressure U.S. officials and members of Congress to turn up the heat on Tehran. Over breakfast at the Ritz-Carlton, Franklin told the two lobbyists about a draft of a top-secret National Security Presidential Directive that dealt with U.S. policy on Iran. Crafted by Michael Rubin, the desk officer for Iraq and Iran in Feith's office, the document called, in essence, for regime change in Iran. In the Pentagon's view, according to one senior official there at the time, Iran was nothing but "a house of cards ready to be pushed over the precipice." So far, though, the White House had rejected the Pentagon's plan, favoring the State Department's more moderate position of diplomacy. Now, unwilling to play by the rules any longer, Franklin was taking the extraordinary—and illegal—step of passing on highly classified information to lobbyists for a foreign state. Unable to win the internal battle over Iran being waged within the administration, a member of Feith's secret unit in the Pentagon was effectively resorting to treason, recruiting AIPAC to use its enormous influence to pressure the president into adopting the draft directive and wage war against Iran. It was a role that AIPAC was eager to play. Rosen, recognizing that Franklin could serve as a useful spy, immediately began plotting ways to plant him in the White House— specifically in the National Security Council, the epicenter of intelligence and national-security policy. By working there, Rosen told Franklin a few days later, he would be "by the elbow of the president." Knowing that such a maneuver was well within AIPAC's capabilities, Franklin asked Rosen to "put in a good word" for him. Rosen agreed. "I'll do what I can," he said, adding that the breakfast meeting had been a real "eye-opener." Working together, the two men hoped to sell the United States on yet another bloody war. A few miles away, digital recorders at the FBI's Language Services Section captured every word. II. The Guru and the Exile In recent weeks, the attacks by Hezbollah on Israel have given neoconservatives in the Bush administration the pretext they were seeking to launch what former House Speaker Newt Gingrich calls "World War III." Denouncing the bombings as "Iran's proxy war," William Kristol of The Weekly Standard is urging the Pentagon to counter "this act of Iranian aggression with a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities." According to Joseph Cirincione, an arms expert and the author of Deadly Arsenals: Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Threats, "The neoconservatives are now hoping to use the Israeli-Lebanon conflict as the trigger to launch a U.S. war against Syria, Iran or both." But the Bush administration's hostility toward Iran is not simply an outgrowth of the current crisis. War with Iran has been in the works for the past five years, shaped in almost complete secrecy by a small group of senior Pentagon officials attached to the Office of Special Plans. The man who created the OSP was Douglas Feith, the undersecretary of defense for policy. A former Middle East specialist on the National Security Council in the Reagan administration, Feith had long urged Israel to secure its borders in the Middle East by attacking Iraq and Iran. After Bush's election, Feith went to work to make that vision a reality, putting together a team of neoconservative hawks determined to drive the U.S. to attack Tehran. Before Bush had been in office a year, Feith's team had arranged a covert meeting in Rome with a group of Iranians to discuss their clandestine help. The meeting was arranged by Michael Ledeen, a member of the cabal brought aboard by Feith because of his connections in Iran. Described by The Jerusalem Post as "Washington's neoconservative guru," Ledeen grew up in California during the 1940s. His father designed the air-conditioning system for Walt Disney Studios, and Ledeen spent much of his early life surrounded by a world of fantasy. "All through my childhood we were an adjunct of the Disney universe," he once recalled. "According to family legend, my mother was the model for Snow White, and we have a picture of her that does indeed look just like the movie character." In 1977, after earning a Ph.D. in history and philosophy and teaching in Rome for two years, Ledeen became the first executive director of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, a pro-Israel pressure group that served as a flagship of the neoconservative movement. A few years later, after Reagan was elected, Ledeen had become prominent enough to earn a spot as a consultant to the National Security Council alongside Feith. There he played a central role in the worst scandal of Reagan's presidency: the covert deal to provide arms to Iran in exchange for American hostages being held in Lebanon. Ledeen served as the administration's intermediary with Israel in the illegal-arms deal. In 1985, he met with Manucher Ghorbanifar, a one-time Iranian carpet salesman who was widely believed to be an Israeli agent. The CIA considered Ghorbanifar a dangerous con man and had issued a "burn notice" recommending that no U.S. agency have any dealings with him. Unfazed, Ledeen called Ghorbanifar "one of the most honest, educated, honorable men I have ever known." The two men brokered the arms exchange—a transaction that would result in the indictment of fourteen senior officials in the Reagan administration.
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] "It was awful—you know, bad things happened," Ledeen says now. "When Iran-Contra was over, I said, ?Boy, I'm never going to touch Iran again.' " But in 2001, soon after he arrived at the Pentagon, Ledeen once again met with Ghorbanifar. This time, instead of selling missiles to the Iranian regime, the two men were exploring how best to topple it. "The meeting in Rome came about because my friend Manucher Ghorbanifar called me up," Ledeen says. Stout and balding, with a scruffy white beard, Ledeen is sitting in the living room of his white-brick home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, smoking a Dominican cigar. His Airedale terrier, Thurber, roams the room protectively. In his first extensive interview about the covert Pentagon operation, Ledeen makes no secret of his desire to topple the government in Tehran. "I want to bring down the regime," he says. "I want the regime gone. It's a country that is fanatically devoted to our destruction." When Ghorbanifar called Ledeen in the fall of 2001, he claimed, as he often does, to have explosive intelligence that was vital to U.S. interests. "There are Iranians who have firsthand information about Iranian plans to kill Americans in Afghanistan," he told Ledeen. "Does anyone want to hear about it?" Ledeen took the information to Stephen Hadley, the deputy national security adviser at the White House. "I know you're going to throw me out of the office," Ledeen told him, "and if I were you I would throw me out of the office too. But I promised that I would give you this option. Ghorbanifar has called me. He said these people are willing to come. Do you want anybody to go and talk to them?" Hadley was interested. So was Zalmay Khalilzad, then the point man on Near East issues for the National Security Council and now the U.S. ambassador to Baghdad. "I think we have to do this, we have to hear this," Hadley said. Ledeen had the green light: As he puts it, "Every element of the American government knew this was going to happen in advance." III. The Meeting in Rome Weeks later, in December, a plane carrying Ledeen traveled to Rome with two other members of Feith's secret Pentagon unit: Larry Franklin and Harold Rhode, a protégé of Ledeen who has been called the "theoretician of the neocon movement." A specialist on Islam who speaks Hebrew, Arabic, Turkish and Farsi, Rhode had experience with shady exiles like Ghorbanifar: He was close to Ahmed Chalabi, the Iraqi dissident whose discredited intelligence helped drive the Bush administration to invade Baghdad. According to UPI, Rhode himself was later observed by CIA operatives passing "mind-boggling" intelligence to Israel, including sensitive information about U.S. military deployments in Iraq. Completing the rogues' gallery that assembled in Rome that day was the man who helped Ledeen arrange the meeting: Nicolò Pollari, the director of Italy's military intelligence. Only two months earlier, Pollari had informed the Bush administration that Saddam Hussein had obtained uranium from West Africa—a key piece of false intelligence that Bush used to justify the invasion of Iraq. To hide the shadowy rendezvous in Rome, Pollari provided a well-protected safe house near the noisy espresso bars and busy trattorias that surround the Piazza di Spagna in central Rome. "It was in a private apartment," Ledeen recalls. "It was fucking freezing—it was unheated." The Pentagon operatives and the men from Iran sat at a dining-room table strewn with demitasse cups of blackish coffee, ashtrays littered with crushed cigarette butts and detailed maps of Iran, Iraq and Syria. "They gave us information about the location and plans of Iranian terrorists who were going to kill Americans," Ledeen says. Ledeen insists the intelligence was on the mark. "It was true," he says. "The information was accurate." Not according to his boss. "There wasn't anything there that was of substance or of value that needed to be pursued further," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld later conceded. "It went nowhere." The men then turned their attention to their larger goal: regime change in Iran. Ghorbanifar suggested funding the overthrow of the Iranian government using hundreds of millions of dollars in cash supposedly hidden by Saddam Hussein. He even hinted that Saddam was hiding in Iran. Ledeen, Franklin and Rhode were taking a page from Feith's playbook on Iraq: They needed a front group of exiles and dissidents to call for the overthrow of Iran. According to sources familiar with the meeting, the Americans discussed joining forces with the Mujahedin-e Khalq, an anti-Iranian guerrilla army operating out of Iraq. There was only one small problem: The MEK had been certified by the State Department as a terrorist organization. In fact, the White House was in the midst of negotiations with Tehran, which was offering to extradite five members of Al Qaeda thought to be of high intelligence value in return for Washington's promise to drop all support for the MEK. Ledeen denies any dealings with the group. "I wouldn't get within a hundred miles of the MEK," he says. "They have no following, no legitimacy." But neoconservatives were eager to undermine any deal that involved cooperating with Iran. To the neocons, the value of the MEK as a weapon against Tehran greatly outweighed any benefit that might be derived from interrogating the Al Qaeda operatives—even though they might provide intelligence on future terrorist attacks, as well as clues to the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden. Ledeen and his Pentagon cabal were not the only American officials to whom Ghorbanifar tried to funnel false intelligence on Iran. Last year, Rep. Curt Weldon, a Republican from Pennsylvania, claimed he had intelligence—from an "impeccable clandestine source" he code-named "Ali"—that the Iranian government was plotting to launch attacks against the United States. But when the CIA investigated the allegations, it turned out that Ali was Fereidoun Mahdavi, an Iranian exile who was serving as a frontman for Ghorbanifar and trying to shake down the CIA for $150,000. "He is a fabricator," said Bill Murray, the former CIA station chief in Paris. Weldon was furious: The agency had dismissed Ali, he insisted, "because they want to avoid, at all costs, drawing the United States into a war with Iran." After the Rome rendezvous, Ledeen and Ghorbanifar continued to meet several times a year, often for a day or two at a time. Rhode also met with Ghorbanifar in Paris, and the Iranian phoned or faxed his Pentagon contacts almost every day. At one point Ledeen notified the Pentagon that Ghorbanifar knew of highly enriched uranium being moved from Iraq to Iran. At another point, in 2003, he claimed that Tehran was only a few months away from exploding a nuclear bomb—even though international experts estimate that Iran is years away from developing nuclear weapons. But the accuracy of the reports wasn't important—what mattered was their value in drumming up support for war. It was Iraq all over again. IV. On the Trail of Mr. X Such covert efforts by Feith's team in the Pentagon started to have the desired effect. In November 2003, Rumsfeld approved a plan known as CONPLAN 8022-02, which for the first time established a pre-emptive-strike capability against Iran. That was followed in 2004 by a top-secret "Interim Global Strike Alert Order" that put the military on a state of readiness to launch an airborne and missile attack against Iran, should Bush issue the command. "We're now at the point where we are essentially on alert," said Lt. Gen. Bruce Carlson, commander of the 8th Air Force. "We have the capacity to plan and execute global strikes in half a day or less." But as the Pentagon moved the country closer to war with Iran, the FBI was expanding its investigation of AIPAC and its role in the plot. David Szady, then the bureau's top spy- catcher, had become convinced that at least one American citizen working inside the U.S. government was spying for Israel. "It's no longer just our traditional adversaries who want to steal our secrets, but sometimes even our allies," Szady declared. "The threat is incredibly serious." To locate the spy sometimes referred to as Mr. X, agents working for Szady began focusing on a small group of neoconservatives in the Pentagon—including Feith, Ledeen and Rhode. The FBI also had its sights on Larry Franklin, who continued to hold clandestine meetings with Rosen at AIPAC. Apparently nervous that the FBI might be on to them, the two men started taking precautions. On March 10th, 2003, barely a week before the invasion of Iraq, Rosen met Franklin in Washington's cavernous Union Station. The pair met at one
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] restaurant, then they hustled to another, and finally they ended up in a third—this one totally empty. As an added precaution, Franklin also began sending faxes to Rosen's home instead of to his AIPAC offices. A few days later, Rosen and Weissman passed on to Israeli-embassy officials details about the draft of the top-secret presidential directive on Iran, saying they had received the document from a "friend of ours in the Pentagon." They also relayed to the Israelis details about internal Bush-administration discussions on Iran. Then, two days before the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Rosen leaked the information to the press with the comment "I'm not supposed to know this." The Washington Post eventually published the story under the headline "Pressure Builds for President to Declare Strategy on Iran," crediting the classified information to "well-placed sources." The story mentioned Ledeen, who helped found the Coalition for Democracy in Iran, a pressure group dedicated to the overthrow of the Iranian government, but gave no indication that the leak had come from someone with a definite agenda for planting the information. That June, Weissman called Franklin and left a message that he and Rosen wanted to meet with him again and talk about "our favorite country." The meeting took place in the Tivoli Restaurant, a dimly lit establishment two floors above the metro station in Arlington that was frequently used by intelligence types for quiet rendezvous. Over lunch in the mirrored dining room, the three men discussed the Post article, and Rosen acknowledged "the constraints" Franklin was under to meet with them. But the Pentagon official placed himself fully at AIPAC's disposal. "You set the agenda," Franklin told Rosen. In addition to meeting Rosen and Weissman, Franklin was also getting together regularly with Naor Gilon, an Israeli embassy official who, according to a senior U.S. counterintelligence official, "showed every sign of being an intelligence agent." Franklin and Gilon would normally meet amid the weight machines and punching bags at the Pentagon Officers Athletic Club, where Franklin passed along secret information regarding Iran's activities in Iraq, its missile-testing program and even, apparently, New York Times reporter Judith Miller. At one point, Gilon suggested that Franklin meet with Uzi Arad, Mossad's former director of intelligence and former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's foreign-policy adviser. A week later, Franklin had lunch in the Pentagon cafeteria with the former top Israeli spy. V. Iran's Double Agent Larry Franklin, it turns out, wasn't the only person involved in the Pentagon's covert operation who was exchanging state secrets with other governments. As the FBI monitored Franklin and his clandestine dealings with AIPAC, it was also investigating another explosive case of espionage linked to Feith's office and Iran. This one focused on Ahmed Chalabi, the head of the Iraqi National Congress, the militant anti-Saddam opposition group that had worked for more than a decade to pressure the U.S. into invading Iraq. For years, the National Security Agency had possessed the codes used by Iran to encrypt its diplomatic messages, enabling the U.S. government to eavesdrop on virtually every communication between Tehran and its embassies. After the U.S. invaded Baghdad, the NSA used the codes to listen in on details of Iran's covert operations inside Iraq. But in 2004, the agency intercepted a series of urgent messages from the Iranian embassy in Baghdad. Intelligence officials at the embassy had discovered the massive security breach—tipped off by someone familiar with the U.S. code-breaking operation. The blow to intelligence-gathering could not have come at a worse time. The Bush administration suspected that the Shiite government in Iran was aiding Shiite insurgents in Iraq, who were killing U.S. soldiers. The administration was also worried that Tehran was secretly developing nuclear weapons. Now, crucial intelligence that might have shed light on those operations had been cut off, potentially endangering American lives. On May 20th, shortly after the discovery of the leak, Iraqi police backed by American soldiers raided Chalabi's home and offices in Baghdad. The FBI suspected that Chalabi, a Shiite who had a luxurious villa in Tehran and was close to senior Iranian officials, was actually working as a spy for the Shiite government of Iran. Getting the U.S. to invade Iraq was apparently part of a plan to install a pro-Iranian Shiite government in Baghdad, with Chalabi in charge. The bureau also suspected that Chalabi's intelligence chief had furnished Iran with highly classified information on U.S. troop movements, top-secret communications, plans of the provisional government and other closely guarded material on U.S. operations in Iraq. On the night of the raid, The CBS Evening News carried an exclusive report by correspondent Lesley Stahl that the U.S. government had "rock-solid" evidence that Chalabi had been passing extremely sensitive intelligence to Iran—evidence so sensitive that it could "get Americans killed." The revelation shocked Franklin and other members of Feith's office. If true, the allegations meant that they had just launched a war to put into power an agent of their mortal enemy, Iran. Their man—the dissident leader who sat behind the first lady in the president's box during the State of the Union address in which Bush prepared the country for war—appeared to have been working for Iran all along. Franklin needed to control the damage, and fast. He was one of the very few in the government who knew that it was the NSA code-breaking information that Chalabi was suspected of passing to Iran, and that there was absolute proof that Chalabi had met with a covert Iranian agent involved in operations against the U.S. To protect those in the Pentagon working for regime change in Tehran, Franklin needed to get out a simple message: We didn't know about Chalabi's secret dealings with Iran. Franklin decided to leak the information to a friendly contact in the media: Adam Ciralsky, a CBS producer who had been fired from the CIA, allegedly for his close ties to Israel. On May 21st, the day after CBS broadcast its exclusive report on Chalabi, Franklin phoned Ciralsky and fed him the information. As the two men talked, eavesdroppers at the FBI's Washington field office recorded the conversation. That night, Stahl followed up her original report with "new details"—the information leaked earlier that day by Franklin. She began, however, by making clear that she would not divulge the most explosive detail of all: the fact that Chalabi had wrecked the NSA's ability to eavesdrop on Iran. "Senior intelligence officials were stressing today that the information Ahmed Chalabi is alleged to have passed on to Iran is so seriously sensitive that the result of full disclosure would be highly damaging to U.S. security," Stahl said. "Because of that, we are not reporting the details of what exactly Chalabi is said to have compromised, at the request of U.S. officials at the highest levels. The information involves secrets that were held by only a handful of very senior intelligence officials." Thanks to the pressure from the administration, the public was prevented from learning the most damaging aspect of Chalabi's treachery. Then Stahl moved on to Franklin's central message. "Meanwhile," she said, "we have been told that grave concerns about the true nature of Chalabi's relationship with Iran started after the U.S. obtained, quote, ?undeniable intelligence' that Chalabi met with a senior Iranian intelligence officer, a, quote, ?nefarious figure from the dark side of the regime, an individual with a direct hand in covert operations against the United States.' Chalabi never reported this meeting to anyone in the U.S. government, including his friends and sponsors." In short, the Pentagon—and Feith's office in particular—was blameless. VI. The Cabal's Triumph Soon after the broadcast, David Szady's team at the FBI decided to wrap up its investigation before Franklin leaked any more information. Agents quietly confronted Franklin with the taped phone call and pressured him to cooperate in a sting operation directed at AIPAC and members of Feith's team in the Pentagon. Franklin, facing a long prison sentence, agreed. On August 4th, 2005, Rosen and Weissman were indicted, and on January 20th, 2006, Franklin, who had earlier pleaded guilty, was sentenced to twelve years and seven months in prison. In an attempt to reduce his sentence, he agreed to testify against the former AIPAC officials. The case is set to go to trial this fall. So far, however, Franklin is the only member of Feith's team to face charges. The continuing lack of indictments demonstrates how frighteningly easy it is for a small group of government officials to join forces with agents of foreign powers—whether it is AIPAC or the MEK or the INC—to sell the country on a disastrous war. The most glaring unindicted co-conspirator is Ahmed Chalabi. Even top-ranking Republicans suspect him of double dealing: "I wouldn't be surprised if he told Iranians facts, issues,
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] whatever, that we did not want them to know," said Rep. Chris Shays, R-Conn., who chairs the House subcommittee on national security. Yet the FBI has been unable to so much as question Chalabi as part of its ongoing espionage case. Last November, when Chalabi returned to the United States for a series of speeches and media events, the FBI tried to interview him. But because he was under State Department protection during his visit, sources in the Justice Department say, the bureau's request was flatly denied. "Chalabi's running around saying, ?I have nothing to hide,' " says one senior FBI official. "Yet he's using our State Department to keep us from him at the same time. And we've got to keep our mouth shut." In the end, the work of Franklin and the other members of Feith's secret office had the desired effect. Working behind the scenes, the members of the Office of Special Plans succeeded in setting the United States on the path to all-out war with Iran. Indeed, since Bush was re-elected to a second term, he has made no secret of his desire to see Tehran fall. In a victory speech of sorts on Inauguration Day in January 2005, Vice President Dick Cheney warned bluntly that Iran was "right at the top" of the administration's list of "trouble spots"—and that Israel "might well decide to act first" by attacking Iran. The Israelis, Cheney added in an obvious swipe at moderates in the State Department, would "let the rest of the world worry about cleaning up the diplomatic mess afterward." Over the past six months, the administration has adopted almost all of the hard-line stance advocated by the war cabal in the Pentagon. In May, Bush's ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, appeared before AIPAC's annual conference and warned that Iran "must be made aware that if it continues down the path of international isolation, there will be tangible and painful consequences." To back up the tough talk, the State Department is spending $66 million to promote political change inside Iran—funding the same kind of dissident groups that helped drive the U.S. to war in Iraq. "We may face no greater challenge from a single country than from Iran," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice declared. In addition, the State Department recently beefed up its Iran Desk from two people to ten, hired more Farsi speakers and set up eight intelligence units in foreign countries to focus on Iran. The administration's National Security Strategy—the official policy document that sets out U.S. strategic priorities—now calls Iran the "single country" that most threatens U.S. interests. The shift in official policy has thrilled former members of the cabal. To them, the war in Lebanon represents the final step in their plan to turn Iran into the next Iraq. Ledeen, writing in the National Review on July 13th, could hardly restrain himself. "Faster, please," he urged the White House, arguing that the war should now be taken over by the U.S. military and expanded across the entire region. "The only way we are going to win this war is to bring down those regimes in Tehran and Damascus, and they are not going to fall as a result of fighting between their terrorist proxies in Gaza and Lebanon on the one hand, and Israel on the other. Only the United States can accomplish it," he concluded. "There is no other way." http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/10962352/iran_the_next_war/1   Senate, Iraqi National Congress Report Research   top PROGRESSIVE REFERENCE CONSERVATIVE Cooperative Research Iraqi National Congress search terms: Nasan Haqib, Muhammad Bahr al- Ulum, Entifadh Qanbar, Francis Brooke, Sharif Ali Bin Al Hussein, Ahmad Chalabi.  Chalabi, White House access, wasteful spending,  Daily KOS Abramoff, what's next and how can we bring down the GOP.   NewsMeat, Jack Abramoff, political campaign contributions:  Global Security Senate Intelligence Report, Prewar findings Huffington Post "That Awful Power: How Judith Miller Screwed Us All" search James Woolsey.

Mikulski, Maryland; Russell D. Feingold, Wisconsin.  see  Cooperative Research Conclusions: (from original report) summarized) by Steve Francis, author of NewsFollowUp.com Conclusion 1.  "False information from the Iraqi National Congress (INC)-affiliated sources was used to support key Intelligence Community assessments on Iraq and was widely distributed in intelligence products prior to the war."  Information provided by INC- affiliated sources resulted in the production and distribution of a large body of intelligence reports and assessments on Iraq prior to the war (250 from Source One alone), and was used to support key judgments about Iraq's WMD (and alleged Iraq / Al Queda links) programs in the October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate (NIE).   Conclusion 2.  "The Iraqi National Congress (INC) attempted to influence United States policy on Iraq by providing false information through defectors directed at convincing the United States that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and had links to terrorists."   The INC had an aggressive 'publicity campaign' and brought six defectors to the attention of the Congress, media and other U.S. government agencies.  In July 2004 the CIA concluded that Source One (AntiPolygraph blog) reporting was 'questionable' 'demonstrably incorrect'.  Source One (AntiPolygraph blog) appeared deceptive about whether the INC provided him information to give to the U.S. government on suspect facilities.  Source Two fabricated information, which included a claim that in 1996 Iraq decided to establish mobile biological weapons labs to evade UN inspections.  A DIA debriefer said Source Two was being coached by INC.  In May 2002, the DIA issued a fabrication notice on Source Two.  A foreign intelligence service also believed Source Two information was unreliable.  James Woolsey? MORE Where does he fit in?  see below.   Source Three said that he observed non-Iraqi Arabs training (for hijackings) in an abandoned aircraft shell at he Salman Pak training facility in Iraq in 1994-1995.  In December of 2001, CIA said that Source Three "is under the influence/control of the INC and is not considered to be very credible."  In February 2002, the CIA's Iraq Operations Group concluded that: "Although we can verify a few elements of his story, we have determined that much of his information is inaccurate and appears aimed at influencing U.S. (and probably western policy on Iraq)."  Source Four said Iraqi intelligence trained Iraqi soldiers and 70-75 non-Iraqi Arabs in hijacking techniques.  In October 2001 Source Four complained that his earlier accouts to the press about terrorist training camps had been distorted and mistranslated by the INC translator.  The CIA Iraqi Operations Group lost interest in Source Four, citing, in a February 2003 cable, Source Four's past exposure in the media and his employment with the INC.  In the fall of 2002 INC-affiliated defector Source Five claimed to have seen Saddam Hussein meet with Osama bin Laden in the early 1990's and SH's son, Uday, told Source Five that bin Ladin was in Iraq to discuss training some of his people in Iraq.  The DIA would neither confirm or deny his access to SH and his inner circle.  DIA said Source Five's information "may be intended to disinform."  The CIA evaluation of Source Five in October 2002 said the bin Ladin story was perhaps contaminated with pockets of coached fabrications.  DIA terminated its relationship with Source Five and said his information may have been intended to influence as well as inform U.S. government decision makers. Conclusion 3.  "The Intelligence Community's use in intelligence assessments of information provided by Iraqi National Congress (INC)-affiliated defector Source Two was a serious error. The use of the Source Two information came after three Intelligence Community assessments raised questions about his reliability as a source and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) issued a fabrication notice."  Despite all the warnings that Source Two may have been coached by the INC and fabricated information to his debriefers, the Source Two reporting was cited specifically in three subsequent CIA intelligence assessments issued from July 2002 to November 2002 and the October 2002 NIE, as corroborating other source reporting about Iraq's mobile biological weapons program.  Source Two also was one of the four human intelligence sources specifically referred to in the part of Secretary of State Powell's February 2003 UN Security Council speech.  Issuing a  fabrication notice instead of recalling the information left it available for use. Reforms by ODNI were instituted. Ahmad Chalabi and Colin Powell Conclusion 4. (redacted) by Steve Francis, author of NewsFollowUp.com Conclusion 5. "The July 2002 decision by the National Security Council Deputies Committee directing the renewed funding of the Iraqi National Congress (INC) Intelligence Collection Program under Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) management was ill- advised given the counterintelligence concerns of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and warnings of financial mismanagement from the Department of State.  At the time it assumed responsibility for funding and managing the INC's collection effort in October 2002, the DIA cautioned that the INC was penetrated by hostile intelligence services and would use the relationship to promote its
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] own agenda." Beginning in March 2000, the Department of State entered into an agreement with the INC, amended over time, to fund the Intelligence Collection Program (ICP) to collect evidence on SH regime.  An audit found financial management and internal control weaknesses and a potential for fraud.  The State Department began to doubt the value on INC information, and ceased funding the program in May 2002.  On July 25, 2002, the NSC refunded it through the Department of Defense and on Oct 25, 2002 the DIA assumed formal responsibility for funding and managing the INC's collection effort despite warnings from both the CIA, which terminated its relationship with the INC in December 1996, and the DIA that the INC was penetrated by hostile intelligence services, including the Iranians, and that the INC would use the relationship with the Intelligence Community to promote its own agenda. Conclusion 6   (redacted) Conclusion 7  "The Defense Intelligence Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency were inconsistent in identifying their reporting from INC-affiliated defectors and INC members as opposition-affiliated reporting."  Information sources affiliations and motivations of defectors were carelessly handled in the reports. Conclusion 8  "There is insufficient basis to determine whether or not CURVE BALL (Cooperative Research), the Intelligence Community's primary source of intelligence about Iraq's alleged biological weapons program, provided his information at the behest of the Iraqi National Congress (INC)"  Beginning in 2000, CURVE BALL provided information to a foreign liaison intelligence service alleging that Iraq had a mobile biological weapons program.  And this led to the October NIE that "Baghdad has mobile facilities for producing bacterial and toxin BW agents."  CURVE BALL provided false information to the Intelligence Community and had a close relative who had worked for the INC since 1992.  A high-ranking official's statements led to initial suspicion in the CIA that CURVE BALL may have provided false information at the INC's behest.  The CIA has since concluded that the relative's connection to INC was coincidental.  All this open to question and debate.  The CIA also assessed that CURVE BALL's defection did not fit the pattern of the typical INC-influenced defection in that the INC did not broker his introduction to the IC and did not put him in front of the media.  The IC did not formally collect on the INC so has no information on the INC's processes and procedures for disseminating information, a key element to asses potential deception programs or tactics.   The IC does not understand why CURVE BALL provided false information and only has a superficial understanding of CURVE BALL's contacts with his close relative and other INC officials.  Its an open question whether he provided his information at the behest of the INC. Committee Actions On August 2, 2006, The Committee inserted text on page 61 concerning the production by CIA analysts of a Memorandum or PDB (Presidential Daily Brief) for the Vice President (Cheney) using an INC-affiliated source's information to support the mobile BW (bio- weapons) program judgment.  As modified, the amendment clarified that the PDB did not include caveats related to the source's reporting.  On August 2, 2006, the Committee agreed (by party lines) to an amendment by Senator Wyden that struck from the report a press statement by Brigadier General Brooks, of the U.S. Central Command, regarding information purportedly discovered in April 2003 at the Salman Pak facility.   Additional views of Chairman Roberts:  included strong objections to the conclusions of the report ... not supported by the facts and contain numerous errors and omissions.  But also said it should be approved and declassified.  Additional Views of Chairman Roberts Joined by Senators Hatch, Dewine, Lott, Chambliss, and Warner:  Includes referrals to 'systematic failures in prewar intelligence on Iraq", reforms...etc.  and that the INC only played a minor role in prewar intelligence.  And referred to HUMINT role, signals intelligence.  They blame the 'media' and media embellishments and  misguided attention to the INC as issues.  Only about 20 intelligence products out of 40,000 had INC related material. The ISG found that an Iraqi intelligence directorate, M14, used the Salman Pak facility to train Iraqi, Palestinian, Syrian,  Yemeni, Lebanese, Egyptian, and Sudanese operatives.  The Republicans pick apart minutia detail of the report and try to cast doubt wherever they can.  But the bottom line is that the report was approved including the conclusions by the committee. It is completely predictable that the Republicans would not like this report.  For more details on Republican rebuttal, see the report. Why was Valerie Plame really outed?

The report to focus on "prewar INC intelligence with regard to Iraq" prior to March 19, 2003, start of Operation Iraqi Freedom.  INC was funded for over a year after the war started, and the report does not include a review of the quality or utility of INC information after the war started. The report does not focus on INC information in the early and mid 90's.  CIA had a tumultuous relationship with INC and Ahmed Chalabi.  Ultimately the relationship ended. INC information was widely distributed, this also was not a focus of the report. A general history of the use of INC information is included,  and the transition of information from the CIA to the State Dept to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) ... and how it was used in analysis of 'WMD' The report distinguishes between INC info and INC-affiliated info. Iran and other sources may have been feeding info to IC. II. Background 1991, Bush encouraged efforts towards Iraq regime change. Violence was deemed a possibility. May 1991, CIA approached Chalabi, a secular Shiite Muslim, to rally opposition. June 1992, more than 200 opposition leaders met in Vienna.  INC then created,  Wikipedia, Rendon Group Oct 1992, another conference held in Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq. Chalabi elected INC chairman. Goals: overthrow Sadam Hussein, establish Iraq democracy, Sadam trial. CIA had problems with Chalabi, say he didn't provide useful info, and didn't deliver on assurances that disaffected Iraqi military officers wanted to defect to opposition.  Chalabi lobbied Congress which caused friction with the CIA, and he said he was not under control of CIA, Oct 1994, the INC provided a steady stream of low-ranking walk-ins from various Iraqi army and Republican Guard units ... but described as a spartan operation.  A lot of squabbling between different opposition groups.  Chalabi awarded for his efforts. 1994 see Cooperative Research, 'forgery shop'  and Huffington Post  "That Awful Power: How Judith Miller Screwed Us All" search James Woolsey. Jan 1995, a KDP / PUK cease fire negotiated, U.S. offered INC funding for INC mediation efforts, U.S. said would cease no-fly zone efforts if KDP / PUK didn't accept cease-fire. Feb 1995, CIA learned of new opposition plan to remove Saddam Hussein  (SH) from power. An assault on SH Ujah residence Mar 4 or Mar 5 was planned. Mid Feb, KDP / PUK a fragile cease-fire holds, INC mediation and separation forces were funded by U.S. Mid Feb, SH assassination plan ongoing, but U.S. not a participant, U.S. wants Iraqis to do it. Mid Feb, Feb 17, 1995, overt U.S. diplomatic initiative with Department of State, Chalabi was focusing on detaining SH in Ujah, then wait for Iraqi people to rise up.  The plan needed diversions in Mosul and Kirkuk and uprisings in the Shi'a south.  But KDP / PUK was still fighting, Mar 1995, CIA met with SCIRI's (Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq) Badr Corps and others said they would support early March coup attempt. CIA accompanied Chalabi to meetings to support a coup, Mar 3, 1995 Chalabi made contact with Iranian intelligence to discuss coup support in southern Iraq, and signaled that U.S. supported the plan.  Early Mar 1995, 'a foreign government' provided U.S. info on Iran's view of this meeting. It was indicated that Iran thought that the US was seeking Iranian support for the Iraqi oppositionist uprising against Saddam Hussein planned for early March 1995.  Iranian officials also believed that the U.S. person involved in the matter was a CIA officer.  Indications were that Chalabi "handed" the Iranians a message at the meeting, purportedly from the U.S., that said America would welcome the involvement of  Islamic forces in the operation against Saddam Hussein, on the condition that the independence and unity of Iraq are preserved, ant the Iraqi borders are not changed. By now there was a NSC firestorm and calls to the CIA to find out what was happening and why a CIA agent was posing as a member of the NSC and allegedly planning an assassination of SH.   Further intelligence about the same meeting indicated that Chalabi told the SCIRI representatives that Americas had promised to prevent any action by the Iraqi army and to target them; to impede Iraqi any tank movements in the cities, not in the marshes, via aerial bombardment, and to prevent Saddam's army from suppressing this initiative, through exploitation of resolutions 688 and 949. In early March, and on the day that the operation was to go forward, messages were sent to all opposition members that the operation had been totally compromised, there was a high risk of failure, and that the U.S. government did not use Chalabi to pass any message to Iran. Chalabi believed it was too late to stop the operation, so proceeded to initiate it, and called other opposition figures and informed them that U.S. no longer supported the operation.  And concern about perception of US support, blame. Regrouping was necessary, maintain sanctions, erosion of SH power. The coup plan never made it to the White House according to ICG.  NSC was surprised by the plan. The plan was a complete failure.  Animosity grew between Chalabi and the CIA, and differing opinions about whether Chalabi consulted the
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] CIA before initiating the coup arose and at the same time claiming that the U.S. supported the uprising. But other reports said he did not enter the plan unilaterally and he did consult the CIA from the beginning.   Chalabi meetings with the Iranians also fueled CIA resentment.  They accused Chalabi of fraudulently acting on behalf of the U.S. when he alleged to Iranian intelligence that Washington was interested in enlisting Tehran's support for operations against SH.   Chalabi did work openly with the Iranians, because much of the Iraqi opposition lived in Iran.   The CIA reduced contact and support for INC after the failed uprising.   August 1996 incursion of Iraqi army into Northern Iraq stopped most INC operations.  Chalabi denied fabricating a written communication from the White House (about U.S. support of SH uprising efforts), or any other part of the U.S. government.  He did work with the Iranians as part of his efforts to establish and maintain the INC. In 1998, Congress passed the Iraq Liberation Act, which led to the 1999 INC authorization for federal assistance. The Iraqi National Congress Support Foundation (INCSF) was created and granted $33 million (2000) to fund Iraq propaganda and research on SH war crimes.  Conflicts with INCSF wanting offices inside Iraq delayed funding until Mar 2001 clearing the way for funding the Information Collection Program (ICP) from countries surrounding Iraq. Offices were in Tehran, Damascus, and Cairo.    Huffington Post  "That Awful Power: How Judith Miller Screwed Us All" search James Woolsey.  2003  Ahmad Chalabi and Colin Powell In an October 2001 report the INCSF provided information on ICP activities and included: "Collect sensitive information that reveal Iraq's link with September 11th aftermath and anthrax exposures in the USA,"  The State Department still uncomfortable with ICP, and an April 2004 saw INC fraud as a PR threat and still doubted value of ICP information and again cut off funding in May 2002.  But in July 2002, DOD gave it back to DIA. In October of 2002 DIA took over and forbid ICP from publicizing their efforts or work in Iraq.   From August of 2002 until early 2004 the CIA voiced concerns about the reliability of the INC information, that it had been penetrated by Iranian and other intelligence services, and that it had its own agenda.  In the fall of 2003 the DIA began making plans to terminate its relationship with the INC assuming that it would become a political party in Iraq.  On May 12, 2004, and Iraqi Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for a senior INC official on allegations of fraud and other offenses. On May 24th the DIA terminated it relationship with the INC and the DOD terminated its relationship with the ICP. Information Provided by the INC In August 2002, the NIC published a memorandum, Iraq: Evaluation of Documents Provided by the Iraqi National Congress. (an evaluation of approximately 300 pages of INC materials). Was deemed of little value. Source One: (AntiPolygraph blog) an Iraqi who lived and worked in Baghdad, defected to Syria.  Source One met with INC representatives who facilitated his travel to Asia and his introduction to the international media. James Woolsey wouldn't rule out involvement with Source One. Woolsey met Chalabi in the late 90's and represented as co-council to eight INC members detained in California on immigration charges. CIA preliminary analysis of Source One: (AntiPolygraph blog) "does not  have access to specific programs at various facilities, his knowledge of (facility) details, individual engineers, and personalities could permit subject matter experts t analyze the data and extrapolate broader program information."  He passed a polygraph.  This report created by Steve Francis, the author of NewsFollowUp.com January 10, 2002.  The DIA produced and disseminated over 250 intelligence information reports from Source One's debriefings, and all sent to the CIA. Source One worked as a contractor at several Iraqi WMD sites of which he reported extensively on including SSO.  Two reports discussed suspect terrorist training sites in Iraq.  The first, dated January 2002, said that from 1997-1998, Afghan, Pakistani, and Palestinian nationals were trained by the Fedayeen Saddam at an Iraqi special forces training facility in Salman Pak, Iraq.  The report said the camp is "rumored to provide al-Qa'ida terrorist teams with training" and added, "many Iraqis believe that Saddam Hussein had made an agreement with Usama bin Ladin in order to support his terrorist movement against the U.S.  The second report, dated March 2002, provided the general locations of suspected Iraqi terrorist training camps, including one at Salman Pak. .... In early 2002, WMD facilities reports appeared in the media drawing attention to other foreign intelligence services. In March 2002, the information was corroborated and vetted. On March 6 2002 the INR had access to the reports and said they were useful.  And in July 2002, in a NIC memo, Source One was described as "the most successful INC referral" ... he had access to as many as 150 conventional or WMD facilities.  ...but he did not have access to more specific information regarding WMD programs.  INR said his claims about WMD work at various facilities are not adequately substantiated.  Source One's (AntiPolygraph blog) descriptions of a specific suspect site were wrong on many points.  Despite this Source One's reporting was included in two finished intelligence assessments, the October NIE  Iraq's Continuing Programs for Weapons of Mass Destruction, and a DIA assessment Iraq's Reemerging Nuclear Weapon Program. Much of the reporting on a uranium enrichment facility was sexed-up to somewhat match what Source One said.   Postwar findings According to the DIA, the U.S. 75th Exploitation Task Force and Iraq Survey Group (ISG) visited the suspect facility in the spring and summer of 2003 respectively.  Soil samples were normal and no enriched uranium was found.  No evidence was found to support intelligence assessments that the site may have been involved in nuclear related work.   In early February 2004, in order to resolve credibility issues with Source One, the IC elements brought Source One to Iraq.  Source One failed to prove any credibility about the suspect facility, but was able to identify a second facility but the information may have been coached and his WMD knowledge remained highly questionable.  DIA officers may have indeed created (extrapolated) the image that Source One knew more than he did.  The CIA studied this possibility in comparing Iraqi opposition deception efforts to reports prepared by DIA officials.   Ultimately, the IC has never deemed Source One (AntiPolygraph blog) to be a fabricator and has not recalled his reporting.
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] See references to Judith Miller and the 75th Exploitation Task Force in NewsFollowUp Plamegate Timeline  and search her story "White House Lists Iraq Steps to Build Banned Weapons". and ZMag  or  New York Times  and Huffington Post  "That Awful Power: How Judith Miller Screwed Us All" search James Woolsey.  2003 Source Two, a former Iraqi major, was referred to DIA on February 8, 2002.  James Woolsey involved in the referral.  The DIA questioned his credibility on Iraqi chemical weapons information.  He may have had some limited knowledge of Iraqi mobile R&D labs in its bio weapons program and VX.  He told debriefers he was involved in procuring dual-use technology in support of Iraq's WMD program.  He was asked not to talk to the media.  And again, his credibility was questioned, and he may have been coached, but passed polygraph tests.  In March of 2002, disseminated two intelligence reports based on Source Two's information.  The reports included info on the Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) and mobile bio research labs (the word weapons not included).  March 18, the CIA told DIA that Source Two was unreliable and fabricated information.  March 20th all contact ceased.  In April, the DIA said that they thought he was being coached by the INC.  In May the DIA issued a fabrication notice, and said that he was coached by INC and said he was a fabricator/provocateur.  The DIA did not recall the original reports or reissue them with a warning that Source Two was believed to be a fabricator.   Despite all the above actions, Source Two was cited specifically in five CIA intelligence assessments and the October NIE, as corroborating other source reporting about a mobile biological weapons program. The five assessments included: WMD Association at Presidential Sites Unlikely to be Revealed by Inspections, Iraq: Expanding BW Capabilities, Iraq: Expanding WMD Capabilities Pose Growing Threat, Lessons Learned From Iraq's Past Efforts to Mask Its BW Program,  and the NIE.  These reports used  almost identical descriptions of Source Two's information.  The language in the papers said that in mid-1996 Iraq decided to establish mobile laboratories for BW agent research to evade UNSCOM inspections...according to Source Two, an Iraqi defector associated with the INC.   Source Two was slso one of the four HUMINT sources specifically referred to in the par of Secretary Powell's February 2003 speech before the UN Security Council that discussed the mobile BW production units.  The DIA Division Chief who attended Powell's speech never connected the fabrication notice and the source mentioned in the speech so didn't raise concerns about it.  The Iraq BW analysts from the CIA, DIA, and State INR all acknowledged that the fabrication notice was available in their message handling systems, but they all said they did not see the notice.  Other analysts involved in Powell's speech said Source Two's reporting on the labs remained plausible and was never cancelled.  As long is it wasn't canceled and was used with appropriate caveats, it could continue to be used in finished intelligence reporting.  Powell's speech contained no caveats.   The fabrication notice was issued on the basis that Source Two was coached, he was talking to the media and foreign intelligence concerns.  Source Two has disappeared. Source Three Ultimately, Source Three, according to a response from the CIA's Counterterrorism Center, stated "is under the influence/control of the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and is not considered to be very credible."  Despite this, many reports were disseminated from his reporting and he was described as a "high ranking Iraqi public official with direct access to reported information." In late September 2001, James Woolsey  and INC presented another defector who had served as a liaison between Iraqi intelligence and the Fedayeen Saddam from 1998 to 2000 and had information on terrorist training in Iraq.   Haydr al Bandor, an INC employee, said Source Three was a former Iraqi lieutenant colonel who conducted training (aircraft hijackings, underwater explosives and booby traps) of 70 Arab terrorists at a special Iraqi training facility at Salman Pak.  The DIA wanted a CIA opinion on debriefings of Source Three.  (Jihaz Mukhabarat al Amma) Using the information from al Bandar, the DIA disseminated two reports.  They described the information from Bandar as from "a former Iraqi citizen, who received this information from a subsource. Source and subsource's credibility have not been determined."  The reports did not indicate that the source was a member of the INC or that the subsource was Source Three. The second report from Bandar provided only one paragraph of text identifying an Egytian businessman who maintained a relationship with the Iraqi intelligence service.  DIA used the first report in which Source Three was a subsource in a Defense Intelligence Terrorism Summary (DITSUM) on September 30, 2001, titled Terrorists Allegedly Training at Iraqi Camps. The DITSUM said Salman Pak was used for hijacking training and Lake Tharthar was used for underwater operations training.  Source Three was instructed by INC to go to the U.S. embassy for an interview.  They thought he had information on an Iraqi officer who had worked as Salman Pak. Source Three only had info on a subsource that could broker a meeting with this officer. The CIA and DIA continued to debrief Source Three about INC coaching.  In mid October three more reports were disseminated based on Source Three reporting and described Source Three as a "high ranking Iraqi public official with direct access to reported information."  None of the reports discussed WMD.  The reports discussed Kuwait prisoners, a special unit of the Fedayeen Saddam al-Qarai'a Force and its UAE deployment plans, training at the Salman Pak location.   In November 2001, the CIA published an assessment of the Salman Pak facility titled Iraq: Salman Pak Unconventional Warfare Training Facility.  Despite reliability warnings said the reports cannot be discounted.
  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] On December 6, 2001 a foreign intelligence service told the CIA that their Iraqi contacts in (Israel?) said that the CIA was working with Source Three.   Source Three, according to a response from the CIA's Counterterrorism Center, stated "is under the influence/control of the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and is not considered to be very credible."  Following debriefings, Source Three's story began to appear in the press that were said to have discrepancies with CIA reports.  This report created by Steve Francis, the author of NewsFollowUp.com see New American article and search on "Iraq and al-Qaeda: Interpreting a Murky Relationship" and Uhler, IraqNews On February 6, 2002, CIA's Iraq Operations Group (IOG) disseminated a cable attempting to summarize the IC various interactions with Source Three.  Conclusions: Although they could verify a few elements of his story, we have determined that much of his information is inaccurate and appears aimed at influencing U.S. policy on Iraq.   Mistaken Identity On June 7, 2002, another CIA station requested a name trace on former Iraqi military officer.  Confusion seems to exist between the identity of Source Two and Source Three stemming from Source Three fleeing Iraq to Europe and being sought by stations in Europe.  Contact was not advised. Intelligence Assessments  CIA analysts included Source Three's information in three extensive assessments about Iraq's links to al-Qa'ida, a June 2002 paper, Iraq and al-Qa'ida: Interpreting a Murky Relationship, and September 2002 and January 2003 versions of Iraqi Support for Terrorism.  All three assessments noted that reporting surged after September 11, 2001 from Iraqi defectors claiming that al-Qa'ida and other non-Iraqi Arabs engaged in special operations training at Salman Pak.  Again the defectors information was suspect and all were associated with INC.  Despite the assertion in Iraqi Support to Terrorism that the "defectors claimed that al-Qa'ida and other non0iraqis" trained at Salman Pak, Committee staff found no reports from these defectors claiming that it was member of al-Qa'ida who received the training.  The IC has no information on the location of Source Three. Source Four Ultimately....CIA Headquaters responded that given several concerns referenced in a separate cable, including Source Four's past exposure in the media and his emplyment with th INC, "we do not have any operational interest in further pursuing (the suspected Iraqi intelligence officer) at this time. In October 2001, Source Four, a former Iraqi Fedayeen Saddam captain, living in the U.S., was referred to the IC by Source Three as someone who could confirm Source Three's story.  A meeting was arranged between him and a U.S. journalist.  INC was involved and provided an INC interpreter.  The CIA received an advance copy of the media article, it said Source Four was a terror school instructor and said that the methods used at the training school were similar to those used by September 11 hijackers.   It was determined that Source Four did not have first-hand access to the information he was giving and the other sources embellished or exaggerated their stories on training camps and may have been coached. Postwar Information on Salman Pak  Steve Francis A November 2003 assessment from DIA noted that postwar exploitation of the Salman Pak facility found it devoid of valuable intelligence.  DIA concluded that "we don't know whether the ex-regime trained terrorists on the aircraft at Salman Pak.  The plane was sold for scrap. In June 2006 DIA said it has "no credible reports that non-Iraqis were trained to conduct or support transnational terrorist operations at Salman Pak after 1991.  It was a well-known facility and a large volume of heresay evidence could be collected.  The Iraqi Survey Group found that an Iraqi intelligence directorate, M14 used Salman Pak for terrorist training.   Source Five  Ultimately ...An assessment of Source Five after his media appearance in 2002 noted that his reports of a meeting between Sadam Hussen and bin Ladin were not corroborated and other reports of meetings between senior Iraqi officials and al-Qa'ida members provide no indication that SH and bin Ladin met.  Source Five was referred to the DIA by the INC through the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs.  He did not recall making this referral.  According to the DIA, Source Five had been smuggled out of Iraq by the INC.  The DIA debriefed the source in the fall of 2002 and produced sixteen intelligence reports based.    Source Five claimed publicly that Osama bin Ladin came to Baghdad.  He passed polygraph tests. In October 2002 his story appeard to be more or less cogent, but was perhaps contaminated with pockets of coached fabrications.  The DIA said that his comments may have been intended to influence as well as inform decision makers.  The bin Ladin meeting report was the only terrorism related report from the source.  None other related to WMD.  NewsFollowUp.com The Would-Be Defector No reporting resulted from this referral. In July 2001, Ahmed Chalabi told an individual in the Department of Defense he had information from an intermediary that a senior Iraqi diplomat in Europe wanted to defect to the U.S.  DIA met with Chalabi to discuss the diplomat's possible defection.  He never defected and neither CIA or DIA officers met with him. No reporting resulted from this referral. INC Reporting During DIA's Management of the ICP.   DIA officially took over management of the ICP (Iraqi Collection Program) from the State Department in late October 2002.  From that time until the beginning of OIF, the DIA disemminated reporting from fourteen other sources (and four others) who were either members of or were associated with the INC.  DIA is unable to attribute the reporting to any single source within the INC's ICP.  The reports covered a myriad of information, with mixed value similar to HUMINT sources. One report stated that Iraq possessed several thousand chemical weapons shells filled with ebola and anthrax.  DIA thought this was credible and was included in threat briefings.  It was not cited in any written assessments. Other reports of which the vast majority were from Iraqi opposition sources.  The reports provided information about SH genealogy, SH key personnel, a report about SH poisoning water supplies with Anthrax, palaces, tribe loyalties, military plans, locations of suspect WMD facilities, medical facilities, leadership residences, regime biographies, smuggling of prohibited materials, SCUD missiles, information on targeting Turkey if U.S. invaded, conventional weapons production facilities, chemical and biological weapons smuggled to Syria, al Qa'ida travel plans outside of Iraq, dual-use materials from Jordan, T-72 tank parts, anti-tank missiles, helicopter engines, and night-vision goggles, rumors of nuclear activity at Tuwaitha and Ameriyah where radiation levels were above acceptable safety standards, daily routine of Uday Hussein, Hussein family residences, Republican Palace, Republican Guard Corp, the Special Security Organization, the Gneeral Security Directorate, Military Intelligence Directorate, business activities of Uday Hussein, oil for food program kickbacks, a subsource report on moving chemical and biological weapons by truck into Samawa, Iraqi Intelligence officers id's, 1989 production of chemical masks, information on Kurdish willingness to support U.S. effors to topple SH in return for money and weapons, a report that Saddam had some units which were dressed as U.S. and British troops and were prepared to "execute chemical-biological warfare" on Iraqi citizens so the

CIA Debrief of INC walk-in (Source Eighteen) was judged a coached fabricator and IC had no further contact with him Alleged INC-Linked Sources (CURVE BALL)  In the IC's judgment, CURVE BALL was the crucial source that led the IC to judge in the 2002 NIE on Iraq's WMD capabilities that "Baghdad has mobile facilities for producing bacterial and toxin BW agents."  There were three other (insignificant) sources who the IC believed corroborated CURVE BALL's reporting.  He provided more than 100 reports.   Uncertainties noted in 2004 of his reliability had been raised but were not disseminated to analysts outside the CIA.  Despite these warnings CURVE BALL was judged to be "credible" or "very credible" in its reporting.  The committee said concerns should have been passed to policymakers.   Ahmad Chalabi and Colin Powell In the summer and fall of 2003, the Iraq Survey Group investigated whether Iraq had a mobile biological weapons program.  It was to investigate sites identified by CURVE BALL and later, CURVE BALL himself.  None of the sixty individuals debriefed provided evidence to substantiate the claim of a mobile BW program.  The CIA assessment on May 26, 2004 states he lied about the program and issued a congressional notification in June 2004 and that his reporting had been recalled.   CURVE BALL had a close relative who had worked for the INC since 1992, for at least some time in a senior position.  They believed he was also coached by the INC.  The CIA believes that CURVE BALL's close relative's connection to the INC is coincidental, and is not an explanation for his fabrications.  In 2003, a CIA analyst told the Committee that CURVE BALL was located when he sought asylum in a European country, when officials reviewed his asylum paperwork, noticed that he was an Iraqi chemical engineer, and approached him to be interviewed.   Source Nineteen  Ultimately....he was unable to provide basic organizational information on the IIS that would show familiarity with the organization. On February 27, 2002 Source Nineteen and Iraqi defector walked in to a third country embassy in the Middle East.  Officers from both the CIA and the third country's intelligence serve debriefed him four times.  Source Nineteen  claimed to have worked as a civilian employee in the IIS from 1988 to 2001, initially as a driver.  He claimed that he was aware of four trucks in Iraq that carried biological and nuclear materal and that in 1995 al-Qa'ida sent some of its members to receive training at a Baghdad intelligence school.  He also provided the names of individuals he sad were Iraq intelligence agents posted abroad.  ....he was unable to provide basic organizational information on the IIS that would show familiarity with the organization.  Other details about Source Nineteen reveal trivial details and lend support to his just being another fabricator/provacateur.  Some of his reports were included in one official IC product. go to Conclusions   See NewsFollowUp.com pages on Judith Miller, CURVE BALL.  also the New Yorker New Yorker "the defector's name is Adnan Ihsan Saheed al-Haideri." search internet: Woolsey, Chalabi, Miller Aljazeera  Neo-cons role in amassing dubious Iraq intel 4/10/2005 9:00:00 AM GMT In an interview with the former CIA head of counterterrorism operations and intelligence director at the National Security Council under Ronald Reagan, Vincent Cannistaro, he was asked if the documents on Iraq's purchase of uranium from Niger came from Italian intelligence to which he answered in the affirmative. However according to Cannistaro "…When we're talking about acquiring information on Iraq. It isn't that anyone had a good source on Iraq - there weren't any good sources. The Italian intelligence service, the military intelligence service, was acquiring information that was really being hand-fed to them by very dubious sources.

  • Rove's brain & fascism, NewsFollowUp.com promote open biz / govt http://www.newsfollowup.com/ledeen_facism.htm[5/29/2014 1:58:44 PM] Intelligence agencies in Britain, France, and Germany were also used in the same campaigns of lies which led to the attack on Iraq. One of the strategies was to feed some nonsense to one intelligence agency, and then have that nonsense distributed to other intelligence agencies. Then the claim would be that the information must be true, as it came from multiple sources. The handling of the source of the main lies used to justify the attack, the aptly named 'Curveball', also displays the same sophistication in technique. Curveball was too obviously undependable to be sent directly to the CIA. As Joseph Cannon writes: ". . . the Office of Special Plans] could feed lies directly into the Oval Office - but they needed more. They needed to find a way to make the CIA bestow its imprimatur onto this silliness. Thus, the neo-cons somehow arranged for Curveball to be routed through German intelligence - we don't yet know how it happened, but it happened. Why give this alky German minders? If the CIA had dealt with Curveball directly, they would have seen through his deceptions rather easily. But since the information came by way of the BND, the CIA tended to trust it. By the time the agency decided to take a closer look at the sourcing, war was already a done deal.  Furthermore, this little scheme offered a bonus: Since Tenet and McLaughlin had bought into the BND's information if it all went haywire responsibility could be laid to rest at the feet of the CIA. Not the OSP, not the INC, not the BND, not Mossad, not the neocon ideologues. Once again, we see use of a bold tactic: The use of a foreign spy shop as a go-between, in order to legitimise and circulate bogus (but ideologically useful) data within the U.S. intelligence community."  If you feed Curveball's shoddy information through German intelligence, with no CIA experts allowed to see him, and ignore the German protestations that he could not be trusted, you can have the lies fed into the American system without any caveats about reliability. The added bonus is that by using the CIA to convey the information, you can then blame the CIA when trouble erupts. The common thread in the forged Niger documents, the use of Curveball, and the British intelligence manipulations which ended up getting David Kelly killed, is a very clever use of multiple intelligence agencies to disguise the source of a collection of rather obvious lies which were used to justify the attack on Iraq. Whoever was behind this had to have had a long history of involvement in American government and involvement with multiple foreign intelligence agencies. There aren't that many people with that kind of experience. Who was: 1) a neocon in favor of an attack on Iraq; with 2) connections to Feith's Office of Special Plans; and with 3) ties to Chalabi and the Iraqi National Congress; and with 4) long-standing documented relationships with foreign intelligence agencies, particularly SISME?   Huffington Post "That Awful Power: How Judith Miller Screwed Us All" search James Woolsey. summary in reference to Chalabi and White House:  search terms related to Senate Intelligence Report: Miller's New York Times front page story: "AFTEREFFECTS: PROHIBITED WEAPONS; Illicit Arms Kept Till Eve of War, An Iraqi Scientist Is Said to Assert."

Miller, obviously, had written nothing related to nerve gas. Her story described only "building blocks" or "precursors" to chemical and biological weaponry.

Other efforts he took to funnel money to support causes of interest to his clients are also being probed. Washington Post reporters Susan Schmidt and James V. Grimaldi have written several stories about the Abramoff Affair  Rove's role in political prosecution of Siegelman. CIA? WayneMadsenReport June 3-4, 2010 -- Blackmail: Et tu Joe?      ....   Vice President Joe Biden has come to the defense of Israel claming the Zionist state had the right to board the Gaza-bound peace flotilla ships while in international waters. Biden said on the "Charlie Rise Show," "I think Israel has an absolute right to deal with its security interest."      ...    Biden's ardent support for Israel at a time when almost every nation on the planet has condemned the barbaric Israeli actions in murdering peace activists, some at point blank range, may not be so odd when considering that like President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, Biden may have his own sexual blackmail problems.     ...    On August 23, 2008, WMR reported: "Now that Biden is Obama's Veep pick, there is another nagging issue for Biden. After it was learned that Jeff Gannon, also known as James Guckert and originally from, it should be noted, Wilmington, Delaware, was not only attending White House press conferences but also ran a gay escort service, Biden went on Bill Maher's "Real Time" and said, "The bottom line is it that why is it that every major network in the country is investigating a security breach . . . and no one had any idea who this guy was? Forgetting everything else, assume he went in there and he was a saint, how could that be? The Judiciary Committee of Senate should be investigating. The House Judiciary Committee should be investigating it and if it were the other party in charge, it would be investigated."     ...    Biden's angst over Gannon/Guckert was odd, especially on national TV. There was a curious item in "The Hotline" from May 3, 2005, regarding an interview Gannon gave to Vanity Fair. "Gannon 'appears to have met Karl Rove only once'; for all 'his purported inside ties, he broke almost no stories.' He 'scarcely' knew Ari Fleischer, and 'apart from sending Scott McClellan a card when he got married, had little personal contact with him.' Nor did 'he have some sort of extra-curricular relationship' with Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE), 'though he'd suggested as much on his Web site.'"     ...     Gannon has mentioned to this editor that he has known Biden for a number of years going back to Gannon's days in Wilmington. Are there additional skeletons in Biden's closet?" Gannon said that then-Senator Biden often went out of his way to say hello to him when he saw him in the Senate. There was a clear indication that Gannon had a prior relationship with Biden in Wilmington.   For the Record "Wolfgang Bohringer, a German pilot, identified by Atta’s one-time girlfriend Amanda Keller as one of Mohamed Atta’s closest associates in Florida during the run-up to the 9.11 attack, and one of the handful of people the terrorist ringleader called “my brother,” recently resurfaced on a tiny island in the South Pacific, in the Republic of Kiribati." The Madame Debra Palfrey also operated a branch of her "high priced escort service" out of Miami and Sarasota Florida (not to get into too much here, but if you are interested, look into the Abramoff /SunCruz / Atta connection and Atta's girlfriend Amanda Keller at the time) but back to Spitzer - he was investigating the illegal trading going on with AIG and the insurance profits made on the shorted 9/11 stocks. The escort service was involved in money laundering and probably the blackmailing of those who dared to "learn too much" Free Market News "It is reported that Jack Abramoff operated a 'sex ring' out of several DC hotels, providing male and female prostitutes, some underage, to leading politicians. Overtly a part of his lobbying activity, reports are that these politicians were later subject to blackmail with photos/videos of their trysts, and that THIS may have been the real secret of Abramoff's success. Now add to this blackmail system the links between Abramoff and the Bush War Machine via Abramoff's secretary in Karl Rove's Office, and Abramoff's links to 9-11, via Mohamed Atta as regular guest on Abramoff's casino ship, and Abramoff start to emerge as the center player in a plot to trick the US into war in the Mideast and to prevent Congress from doing anything about it."  It was at Shuckum's, on Sept. 8, 2001 that Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi did some pre-mass murder tippling," reported TIME. "Atta drank vodka and orange juice, while Al-Shehhi preferred rum and cokes, five drinks apiece." .. FBI Agents had shown up at Shuckum's just 12 hours after the attack, reported all three major networks.

Think Progress "Gannon blogs at the National Press Club’s website.Filed Under: Media By Amanda on Jun 17th, 2008 at 3:51 pm Jeff Gannon blogs at the National Press Club’s website.» Poblano at DailyKos notes that disgraced “reporter” Jeff Gannon is blogging at the National Press Club (NPC). Gannon gained notoriety as the former male escort who, for two years, gained a White House press pass using a pseudonym. There appear to be seven active blogs on the NPC’s site, including Gannon’s. Steve O’Hearn, chairman of the NPC’s new media committee — of which Gannon is also a member — told ThinkProgress that the “current policy” is that any NPC member can have a blog on the organization’s site, although it’s so far mostly members of the committee. Gannon’s most recent post goes after CodePink and its “ties to terrorists and repressive regimes around the world.” WMR The U.S. government's bail out of insurance giant American International Group (AIG) comes as no surprise to intelligence community insiders. In fact, AIG has been at the center of a number of CIA operations for decades. The federal government's $85 billion "bridge" loan to AIG essentially makes the United States government an 80 percent stakeholder in AIG, a move that will prevent external players from peering into AIG's myriad intelligence operations on behalf of the CIA, according to an insider who has followed AIG's overseas operations for a number of years.  ...   The CIA's analysts who concentrate on Asia have also enjoyed routine access to a huge AIG database maintained in San Francisco. AIG's new building in Hong Kong was intended to be a major outpost for CIA agents assigned the China "beat." However, Chinese intelligence succeeded in thoroughly wiring the building with surveillance systems and AIG's China operations were blown.

DemocraticUnderground forum CBS News "Tired and timid are two adjectives never applied to Rove. The architect of the Bush victories in 2000 and 2004 came through the ranks of college Republicans with the late Lee Atwater, and their admitted and alleged dirty tricks are the legends many young political operatives dream of pulling off. So when Jeff Gannon, White House "reporter" for Talon "News," was unmasked last week, the leap to a possible Rove connection was unavoidable. Gannon says that he met Rove only once, at a White House Christmas party, and Gannon is kind of small potatoes for Rove at this point in his career.  But Rove's dominance of White House and Republican politics, Gannon's aggressively partisan work and the ease with which he got day passes for the White House press room the past two years make it hard to believe that he wasn't at least implicitly sanctioned by the "boy genius." Rove, who rarely gave on-the-record interviews to the MSM (mainstream media), had time to talk to GOPUSA, which owns Talon.  GOPUSA and Talon are both owned by Bobby Eberle, a Texas Republican and business associate of conservative direct-mail guru Bruce Eberle who says that Bobby is from the "Texas branch of the Eberle clan." Bobby Eberle told The New York Times that he created Talon to build a news service with a conservative slant and "if someone were to see 'GOPUSA,' there's an instant built-in bias there." No kidding. The Law Party "Cable television news reports have recently linked an alleged male prostitute to the present White House since George W. Bush permitted James Guckert to use an unprecedented Secret Service-approved alias (Jeff Gannon) while having access to the White House for two years as a pool reporter serving the younger Bush--before which Gannon had advertised himself on internet pornography sites as a male "escort" charging $200 an hour. Gannon is the subject of independent news reports which have referred to him as the former kidnapped Des Moines, Iowa paperboy Johnny Gosch--forced into child sex-slavery.] John DeCamp told this writer "I believe Johnny Gosch and Jeff Gannon are one and the same person--but I am not in a position to know positively." ""George W. Bush has not explained how Guckert/Gannon --who had advertised himself as a male escort--could apparently operate in the White House as a reporter for two years using a Secret Service-approved alias and regularly be called upon by George W. Bush and press secretary Scott McClellan during nationally televised presidential press conferences." RawStory "Guckert made more than two dozen excursions to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On many of these days, the Press Office held press gaggles aboard Air Force One—which raises questions about what Guckert was doing at the White House. On other days, the president held photo opportunities.  On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show either the entry or exit time missing. Generally, the existing entry or exit times correlate with press conferences; on most of these days, the records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.  In March, 2003, Guckert left the White House twice on days he had never checked in with the Secret Service. Over the next 22 months, Guckert failed to check out with the Service on fourteen days. On several of these visits, Guckert either entered or exited by a different entry/exit point than his usual one. On one of these days, no briefing was held; on another, he checked in twice but failed to check out." Sourcewatch ""Jeff Gannon" is the pseudonym used by James Dale Guckert , unmasked in February 2005 by John Aravosis's AMERICAblog.org Blogspot and Media Matters for America, a liberal watchdog group based in Washington, DC, to be a fake White House "correspondent" working for the pseudo news organization Talon News, which is closely tied to GOPUSA, a right-wing site owned by a Texas-based Republican activist.  Gannon had access to the White House and was admitted to the White House press briefing room on day press passes for almost two years. He was recognized for editorializing before asking "softball" questions of the White House press staff and, even on occasion, of President George W. Bush, to break up lines of aggressive questioning by legitimate reporters, thereby assisting the staff in controlling press conferences    and   .... had a career as a $200-an-hour escort 2].

And while Gannon's true identity still can't be confirmed, Rothstein says the more clues he uncovers, the possibility Gannon may be Gosch increases, "When you look into the whole abduction of Johnny, what happened, the cover-up that took place, the way the kidnapping was done, this was a professional job and it fits the profile that I have seen over the years as a professional investigator." WayneMadsenReport / Online Journal  "Except for the outbreak of news stories concerning the Franklin Credit Union-Lawrence King-Craig Spence child prostitution scandal in 1989 that involved midnight tours of the White House for underage male sex slaves from Nebraska and reached high into the upper echelons of the elder Bush administration, little has been heard about the sex crimes of top Republicans. That is, until it was revealed that "Jeff Gannon" was intricately tied to GOP operatives ranging from George W. Bush political "Svengali" Karl Rove, to White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, and Texas GOP provocateur Bobby Eberle. In typical Bush scandal fashion, Eberle's "Talon News Service" has disappeared as fast as Jeff Gannon from the James Brady Briefing Room and Doug Wead's secret tapes of Bush from the public ear—tapes that, at the very least, indicated Bush's prior use of marijuana, cocaine, and LSD." Gannon's White House press briefing question: "Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the US economy," Gannon said. " Minority Leader] Harry Reid was talking about soup lines, and Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet, in the same breath, they say that Social Security is rock solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work -- you said you're going to reach out to these people -- how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?" From TuffyLee, Democratic Underground forum: "Perhaps someone should look closer in to the Eberle role in all of this. We all know that 36 year-old Bobby Eberle, who lives in Houston, just happened to be in Washington on Sept. 11 and witnessed the Pentagon attack. There are conflicting reports as to the relationship between Bobby Eberle and Bruce Eberle, some say they are brothers, some say they are not related. They obviously have a business connection through GOPUSA.  Bruce Eberle happens to sit on a Board of Trustees for "Youth for Tomorrow" www.youthfortomorrow.org "Since 1986 YFT has offered new hope and new opportunities to young men who have been abandoned, abused, or otherwise alienated from home or community. YFT is a residential home, accredited school, and counseling center serving at-risk teenage young men between the ages of 11- 18.

The secret deal involved rogue CIA agents working with vice presidential candidate George H. W. Bush and Reagan campaign manager William Casey to keep U.S. hostages prisoner in Iran.  EATSCO's cover mission was to support the implementation of the 1978 Camp David accords.  The Iran weapons smuggling plan was cooked up by Bush, Casey, and CIA officials Donald Gregg and Robert Gates as a way to ensure President Jimmy Carter's electoral defeat.  We reported on EATSCO last November: "On Nov. 17/18/19, 2006, WMR reported on the presence of an aircraft linked to Viktor Bout's international weapons smuggling network at Mogadishu airport. WMR reported that the "Boeing-707, registered in Ghana with registry number 9G-GAL, marked with “SACHA” on the fuselage, used the call sign 9QCTA. The plane landed in Mogadishu at 0700 GMT on November 13, 2006. The plane reportedly made previous stops with arms and ammunition at Mogadishu."  S.S. Poet Roger Ailes,  (on Lapin / Abramoff): "Rabbi Daniel Lapin's nonprofit, founded with Abramoff and film critic/radio talker Michael Medved, promotes faith-based conservative politics in tandem with the religious right. Through Abramoff's considerable GOP connections, Lapin has brokered alliances with congressional and Bush administration officials as well. They include tax-reform guru Grover Norquist and consultant Ralph Reed, both of whom have been subpoenaed to appear before Sen. John McCain's Senate Indian Affairs committee, which is looking into the extraordinary lobbying fees Abramoff charged tribes and casinos, work performed mostly after leaving Preston Gates. A radio host on KTTH- AM (770), Lapin is co-chair of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians, whose board includes Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. Lapin is involved in other religious/political alliances that worked to get George W. Bush elected and re-elected. Last year, Newsweek reported, "When fundraising began for Bush's re-election effort, Rabbi Daniel Lapin . . . urged friends and colleagues to steer campaign checks to Bush via Abramoff." President Bush recently reappointed Lapin to the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America's Heritage Abroad, which helps preserve cemeteries, monuments, and historic buildings in Eastern and Central Europe. Donors to his charity, according to IRS tax filings, comprise the cream of the religious right, such as Lenore Broughton, the Carthage Foundation, and the Scaife Family Foundation. They have helped Lapin raise, on average, about $500,000 a year, based on filings from 1997 through 2003 -- money he uses to "educate the public through conventions, seminars, public speaking, and class studies on Judeo Christian values," he told the IRS.  WMR  more search terms: Sun Shipbuilding and Drydocks, Gerald Ford, CIA Carter, William Colby, SS Glomar Explorer, sunken Soviet Golf-II diesel submarine, Project Jennifer, K-129, Brent Scrowcroft, SSN5 ICBM, John Warner, Chester, Pennsylvania,  Reagan, Casey, Robert Gates. Global Research "While Ledeen and the CIA try to claim that Gladio is a "legend," fabricated by the Soviets in an attempt to blame the US for their actions, the revelation of historical evidence is indicting America and the agency for introducing political terrorism to Western electoral politics. Gladio is an ongoing operation by our government to savagely kill and wound thousands of our own allies, in order to blackmail them into supporting America's fascist plans for the world. "Political action" took on a whole new meaning at the hands of the CIA and its hidden allies. ...  Terrrorism, as political action, became the driving force in American foreign policy, and any nation that sought our aid, or to become allied with us, had to accept this reality and the necessity to keep blaming others for our own commissioned attacks. The historical record of "terrorist" bombings throughout the world is, for the most part, a record of our actions, done under the cover of layers of "plausible deniability," created by the compartmentalization of terrorist strike forces into different secret levels.  ...  If the mercenary Gladio paramilitary forces could not provide a sufficient level of violence to satisfy the Company's needs, then the agency could rely on its own paramilitary units, or on special troops from Defense Intelligence under the 30-31B provision. If the work required an extra layer of "plausible deniability" then there were always criminal organizations for hire and the super-secret network of "rogue operators" like Ed Wilson, who were officially alleged to be "former CIA." In the book, Charlie Wilson's War, former agent Wilson told President Anastasio Somoza of Nicaragua that he could raise an army of 1000 "ex" agents to defeat anti-government rebels, for the right price."           & ephebophilia The Franklin Scandal 1989, Lawrence E.

Conveniently, Foley co-chaired the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, which would have had authority to investigate charges of child prostitution in the Northern Marianas.... RawStory: "History Revisited  In 1983, Congressional oversight committees learned that the Reagan administration and the CIA were engaged in unapproved clandestine activity in Nicaragua, supporting an extreme right wing group called the Contras, who were working against the democratically-elected socialist Sandinista government. In response, Congress passed the Boland Amendment, that blocked direct government funding for the Contras, as a measure by which to rein in the extra-legal activities of the Reagan White House.  In order to continue funding the Contras, the White House began running arms to Iran, an avowed enemy of the United States then just as now, and funneled the profits to the Contras under the management of National Security Council aide, Lt. Col. Oliver L. North.  Special prosecutor Lawrence Walsh described the markup strategy in his final report: Lt. Col. Oliver L. North of the NSC staff had inflated the price to the Iranians for HAWK missile spare parts that were to be delivered at the Tehran meeting by a multiple of 3.7. Manucher Ghorbanifar, who brokered the parts sale, added a 41% markup to North's price of $15 million. With another increase added by Ghorbanifar during the Tehran meeting, the Iranians were charged a total of $24.5 million for HAWK spare parts priced by the Defense Department at $3.6 million. Operating as a "carrier pigeon" of messages between North and Ghorbanifar was Michael Ledeen.  Vaughn Forrest, who recently accompanied Congressman Hoekstra to Paris, was then an aide to former Florida Congresman Bill McCollum and allegedly involved with North's activities on the Contra end. Forrest is even alleged to have toured Contra camps in Costa Rica.   Wayne Madsen Report:  Crist and his "Sweet Sixteen" friend.

Bush's choice to co-chair his commission to investigate intelligence failures prior to the Iraq War is a long-time, right wing political activist closely tied to the neo- conservative network that led the pro-war propaganda campaign  ...  In 1980, when he served as part of former Republican president Ronald Reagan's senior campaign staff, he played a key role in setting up secret contacts between the Reagan-Bush campaign and the Islamic government in Tehran, in what became known as the ''October Surprise'' controversy.  (Former president George HW Bush, the current president's father, was Reagan's vice-president for two terms, 1981-89).  Rewarded with his appeals court judgeship several years later, Silberman helped advise right-wing activists during the 1990s on strategies for pursuing allegations of sexual misconduct by then-Democratic president Bill Clinton, according to various accounts.  Besides Silberman and Robb, a conservative Democrat who also has strong ties to neo-conservatives through the Democratic Leadership Council, Bush chose five other commission members and indicated that two more have yet to be named.  The five include Arizona Republican Senator John McCain; former White House counsel for Clinton and former president Jimmy Carter, Lloyd Cutler; Yale University President Richard Levin; former deputy Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director, Admiral William Studeman and retired appeals court judge Pat Wald.   But it is his role in the 1980 election that is perhaps most intriguing about Silberman's appointment.  He is alleged to have set up and participated in a mysterious meeting in Washington on Oct. 2, 1980 -- one month before the election -- with Reagan's top foreign policy adviser, then-Marine Lieutenant Colonel Robert McFarlane (Reagan's national security adviser during the Iran-Contra scandal), and at least one Iranian arms dealer.  It was the culmination of a series of secret meetings -- never reported to the U.S. government -- between Reagan campaign officials and Iranians who purported to represent the government of the Ayatollah Khomeini.  The precise purpose of those meetings has never been resolved, but one school of thought, propounded most effectively in the early 1980s by Carter's top National Security Council adviser on Iran, was that the Republican campaign was trying to ensure that Tehran would not make a deal with Carter to release U.S. Embassy hostages who were being held in Iran until after the November elections.  In return, Iran would be covertly supplied with U.S.-made weapons via Israeli middlemen, according to the theory.  Reagan officials, including Silberman, have vehemently denied this version of events.  Nonetheless, it appears that Silberman was a key conduit to Iran during the early 1980s.
