of a sudden Saddam, or one of his groomed doubles, is talking on tape.
Bush was right all along about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, or
at least partially right, and there is a new shine of legitimacy on the
invasion of Iraq and the murder of thousands of Iraqis who probably
should have known better than to live in a country with such a
perfidious dictator, a guy who messed around with weapons of mass
destruction behind the back of the United Nations and the Greatest Darn
Country on Earth.
"Hussein … can be heard speaking with
high-ranking Iraqi officials about deceiving United Nations inspectors
looking into Iraq’s weapons program, which his son-in-law, Lt. Gen.
Hussein Kamel, oversaw," reports CNN.
"The tapes, which U.S. officials have confirmed are authentic, are part
of a much larger cache of information on the nation’s weapons
programs." No doubt these are the same officials who confirmed the
Osama tapes as authentic. On the side, they sell used cars in
Since news is now considered entertainment, we
are expected to check our disbelief and suspicion at the door. However,
there is one small troublesome aspect to the Saddam tapes—they were
released to the public by the International Intelligence Summit,
described "as a nonpartisan, nonprofit forum that promotes an exchange
of ideas among members of the international intelligence community….
The summit’s main sponsor is the Michael Cherney Fund, whose Web site
describes the fund’s main objective as 'helping realize the
intellectual potential of the post-Soviet emigres to Israel.’"
the casual observer, this bit about post-Soviet émigrés and Israel may
seem confusing—that is until you realize, as Bush’s adviser Philip Zelikow
revealed, the invasion of Iraq was launched to "protect" Israel, not
that the enfeebled nation of Iraq, suffering from more than a decade of
debilitating sanctions, posed a threat to Israel with its modern
high-tech weaponry, including more than 400 nukes.
On the Michael Cherney Foundation web page,
Cherney is described as an "Israeli philanthropist…. who has donated
more than $20 million over the last decade to anti-terror activities
and studies, and support for terror victims." It appears Cherney made
his money "buying low and selling high in the chaotic and unregulated
post Soviet economies in several newly independent Eastern European
states," in other words he exploited the misery imposed on the people
of Eastern Europe by a gang of globalist neoliberal bankers, loan
sharks, and carpetbaggers after the props were pulled out from under
the Soviet Union. Some of Cherney’s pals, described as the
Russian-Jewish "Oligarchs," have "fled Russia for the protection of
Israel, where defrauding Gentiles is not considered a crime," according
to Focal Point.
Cherney is not allowed to enter America due to his connections to the
Russian Mafia, who are in turn connected to the Russian-Jewish
So tainted is the "Israeli philanthropist"
Cherney, even staunch Straussian neocons are backing away from him. "In
the last week both John Deutch and James Woolsey abruptly left their
positions at Intelligence Summit, according to its president, John
Loftus, who said their departure is part of a campaign by the
directorate of national intelligence to punish him for releasing the
recordings," reports the New York Sun.
"The reason both men gave for their resignations was new information
they received regarding one of the summit’s biggest donors, Michael
Cherney, an Israeli citizen who has been denied a visa to enter America
because of his alleged ties to the Russian mafia…. The Russian
businessman immigrated to Israel in 1995 after allegations in his
native country swirled that he was involved with assassinations and
other criminal enterprises… In 1998, he was barred from Bulgaria for an
alleged plot to assassinate the son of a Cabinet minister. The
information originally was passed on by Israeli law enforcement
authorities, who later rescinded the claim."
In short, the
alleged Saddam tapes, supposedly revealing how Hussein attempted to
hide his desire to kick start a weapons of mass destruction program
(and thus lending credence to the war crimes of the Straussian
neocons), are tainted by the criminal background of "one of the
summit’s biggest donors, Michael Cherney," obviously an Israeli agent
proffering dubious goods even hang tough Straussian neocons back away
from, smelling a rat.
Of course, the corporate media will
ignore all of this and go for the lathered gusto of the Saddam tapes
story, even though we know the Straussian neocons are inveterate liars
and flimflam artists, predicating the Iraq invasion on a passel of
fabrications and outright and often absurd lies. None of this matters
because it is all beyond the intellectual capacity of the average
American, unable to break out of the Borg hive mentality of corporate
media as it hucksters Straussian neocon and Jabotinsky Israeli
Meanwhile, a new propaganda campaign directed
against the next target is going famously. "The World Jewish Congress
has launched a campaign against Iran following the nuclear crisis and
the anti-Semitic statements of Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad," Haaretz
reported on February 10. "In its biannual gathering in Jerusalem on
Thursday the WJC called on Jewish communities throughout the world to
pressure their governments to act against the Iranian nuclear program
and urge economic and political sanctions against Iran," in other words
attack Iran for nukes it does not have and will not have for a decade
or more, according to experts not on the Israeli-Straussian neocon
payroll. Rabbi Israel Singer, chairman of the WJC’s Policy Council,
"said Jewish communities around the world must make it clear to their
governments that the Iranian regime threatens not only the Jews with
its utterances and nuclear activity, but all the countries in the
Naturally, no mention here of the fact Israel has "200 and 500 thermonuclear weapons and a sophisticated delivery system," as John Steinbach
noted in 2003. "Since the Gulf War in 1991, while much attention has
been lavished on the threat posed by Iraqi weapons of mass destruction,
the major culprit in the region, Israel, has been largely ignored.
Possessing chemical and biological weapons, an extremely sophisticated
nuclear arsenal, and an aggressive strategy for their actual use,
Israel provides the major regional impetus for the development of
weapons of mass destruction and represents an acute threat to peace and
stability in the Middle East."
No mention as well of the
established fact the Israelis encouraged the Pentagon to use
"non-contaminating tactical nuclear weapons" against Iraq in 2003 (see The Third Temple’s Holy of Holies: Israel’s Nuclear Weapons, Warner D. Farr, USAF Counterproliferation Center).
Israeli government is preparing to use nuclear weapons in its next war
with the Islamic world. Here where I live, people often talk of the
Holocaust. But each and every nuclear bomb is a Holocaust in itself. It
can kill, devastate cities, destroy entire peoples," Mordechai Vanunu stated in a December, 2005, interview.
instead of worrying about Israel and its bulging weapons of mass
destruction arsenal—and its apparent desire to use nukes against its
enemies, who are considered little more than cockroaches and beasts
walking on two legs—we are distracted by a questionable Saddam
videotape and a few comments, taken out of context and hysterically
blown all out of proportion, by the anti-Zionist president of Iran.
a "Russian oligarch," Cherney, also known as Mikhail Chernoy, "along
with several other oligarchs, cornered the Russian aluminum industry
under Yeltsin in the 1990’s through bribery and murder. As he is under
indictment for these crimes in Russia, he has taken refuge in Israel.
Recently Cherney was indicted in Israel for money-laundering and
fraudulent receiving evidence for his part in the purchase of a 20%
stake in state-run phone company Bezeq. Mr. Cherney has been associated
with a number of international fraudsters, including Marc Rich of the
New York Bank scandal. The Cherney Foundation is seen by Israeli
investigators as a public relations ruse," according to a Colorado
Congressman Bob Beauprez
Q&A. Is it possible the Saddam tapes are a "public relations ruse"
as well? It is curious, however, to watch Straussian neocons, infested
with the lice of war crimes, run away from the likes of a scumbag such
as Mikhail Chernoy, obviously a bird of a feather.
past, Cherney bankrolled the Jerusalem Summit, a Straussian-Jabotinsky
confab held "at the King David Hotel on the first days of Sukkot, Oct.
12-14," 2003, according to Helen Freedman, Executive Director,
Americans For a Safe Israel. It should be noted that the location is
appropriate, since the King David Hotel was bombed on July 22, 1946, by
the Irgun terrorist and future leader of Israel, Menachem Begin,
killing 91 and injuring 45. As for the Straussian and Jabotinsky
luminaries in attendance, see the photos on this page. As Habib Siddiqui
noted at the time, the first Jerusalem Summit was held on the "10th
anniversary of the Oslo Accord" and was tasked with establishing "an
international think tank that would solidify Israel’s position
vis-à-vis sanctifying its illegal annexation of Jerusalem and
occupation of Palestinian territories." As if to dispel and doubts the
confab was anything but a radical Jabotinsky affair, "Rabbi Benny Elon,
head of the Moledet Party and Tourism Minister, unveiled [a] plan
calling for the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority and
recognition of Jordan as the Palestinian state, with West Bank Arabs
becoming citizens of the Palestinian state in Jordan. It also called
for Israeli sovereignty over Judea, Samaria and Gaza." In short, the
attendees discussed ethnic cleansing and rampant violations of
international law, common enough fare in conquered Palestine.
At a subsequent summit, neocon friendly Congress critter Bob Beauprez
characterized Afghanistan and Iraq as "free Arab states," even though
Afghans are not Arabs (we cannot expect the good congressman to tell
the difference), and "are now a candle of hope where a short while ago,
only darkness lived," even though Iraqis resoundingly declare things
were better under Saddam, even with a million and half people killed
under brutal medieval sanctions (500,000 of them children).
