THE HOEKSTRA-HARMAN HOAX: HOW THE WAR PARTY PLANS TO LIE US INTO WAR - AGAIN by Justin Raimondo
"It is coming because there is simply no opposition to the Lobby's ironclad control of the U.S. Congress. The defense of Israel overrides and effectively neutralizes all other considerations. It doesn't matter that a confrontation with Iran will create yet more terrorists determined to strike at America, it is deemed an act of "appeasement" to point out that, if we contained the nuclear-armed Soviets for half a century, we could easily deter the Iranians from attacking our Middle Eastern allies and it is considered beyond the pale to note that the advocates of war with Iran are serving the interests of a foreign power, namely Israel, over and above what is clearly in American interests...

"Like a bully spoiling for a fight, the U.S. is pushing the Iranians hard, and it is only a matter of time before the Iranians push back. When that battle comes, and the Democrats try to escape their own major responsibility for the inevitable disaster, remember that they, too, signed on to the Hoekstra report and joined their voices to the chorus demanding "action" against Tehran."

The Hoekstra-Harman Hoax

How the War Party plans to lie us into war again


by Justin Raimondo


For the War Party, deception isn't just a tactic, or even a strategy it's a lifestyle. That's why they're indifferent to getting caught. Like a hardened criminal arrested for his umpteenth felony, the neocons see brazen lying as just a routine procedure. Caught red-handed, they just move on to their next subterfuge, one invariably designed to drag us into war.

That is the only way to explain what Reps. Peter Hoekstra and Jane Harman thought they were doing when they released their "report" [.pdf] on Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program, which as the International Atomic Energy Agency puts it is chock full of "erroneous, misleading, and unsubstantiated information." In a letter [.pdf] to House Intelligence Committee chairman Hoekstra, IAEA official Vilmos Cserveny takes "strong exception" to "incorrect and misleading" claims in the report that the IAEA fired an inspector, one Christopher Charlier, for giving the Iranians a hard time. He was let go, says the Hoekstra-Harman report, because he went up against an alleged policy "barring IAEA officials from telling the whole truth about the Iranian nuclear program," as Hoekstra-Harman put it. This conspiracy theory is put to rest by Cserveny, who curtly informs the American Congress that Iran is fully within its rights, under the Nonproliferation Treaty, to ask for the replacement of one inspector out of over 200 which it has accepted.

Cserveny points out, as did some in the blogosphere when the report first came out, that the "weapons grade" enrichment described by Hoekstra-Harman as occurring at Natanz is a complete fabrication. Why, it was only last April, Cserveny reminds the esteemed members of the House, that the inspectors verified a 3.6 percent enrichment rate not the 90 percent or more required to qualify as "weapons grade."

The lies pile up, one placed upon another until an edifice of massive deception is constructed, a narrative that can convince the American people to go along with the effort to start World War III (or IV, as some would have it). Iran, the latest target of the regime-changers, is in America's sights, and we aren't going to let such a paltry consideration as the facts get in our way. Hoekstra-Harman have no interest in reality: their "report" is war propaganda, pure and simple. That's why they shrieked that Iran is "covertly" producing polonium-210, a substance with "two known uses," one of which is to produce nukes (the other is to make satellite batteries). Who cares if Iran is not required, under the terms of the NPT, to provide information about P-210 production? It sounds scary, and the average reader and reporter is not going to know what is entailed or that the UN has made an investigation [.pdf] in good faith to determine the nature and extent of Iran's P-210 production. Instead, they are expected to swallow the conspiracy narrative woven by Hoekstra-Harman that depicts the IAEA as the Iranians' willing instrument. After all, isn't the head of the IAEA named ElBaradei? Don'tcha know those ragheads are all in on it together?

The War Party has learned nothing and has no regrets, and this willful blindness is underscored by the latter half of the Hoekstra-Harman duo. Even as the Democrats rail against the "quagmire" in Iraq, and decry the conduct of that war, their leaders are intent on dragging us into yet another conflict, this time much bigger, and with far more mire.

Harman has referred to Israel's murderous assault on Lebanon as "draining the swamp," and her position on Iran isn't much better: Her solution to the Iranian problem is to "recruit a much more diverse group of spies with cultural sensitivity" rather than rely on the IAEA. I see she's learned a thing or two since her "debate" with Richard Perle at AIPAC's 2005 shindig, when she fell over herself agreeing with the Dark Prince of the War Party, as chronicled by Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank:


"Perle drew cheers for denouncing Palestinian anti-Semitism and the French. Harman mentioned that an aide once worked for AIPAC, called her audience 'very sophisticated' and celebrated Yasser Arafat's death as 'a blessing.' Debating a hard-liner in front of a pro-administration crowd, Harman heaped praise on President Bush, calling the Iraqi elections 'sensationally impressive' and moving to 'applaud' or 'commend' Perle and the administration a dozen times. 'Richard is right, and so is President Bush,' she said at one point.

"But after half an hour of this, Harman could not keep up. Perle provoked cheers from the crowd when he favored a military raid on Iran, saying that 'if Iran is on the verge of a nuclear weapon, I think we will have no choice but to take decisive action.' When Harman said the 'best short-term option' is the UN Security Council, the crowd reacted with boos."

Threat to France as Al-Qaeda enrolls Algerian Islamists

Friday September 15, 12:31 AM

DUBAI, Sept 14, 2006 (AFP) - A radical Algerian Islamist group that has singled out France as its sworn enemy officially placed itself at Al-Qaeda\'s orders, vowing to support the terror network\'s war on \"crusaders\" worldwide.
The Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), an armed movement which has long been linked to Al-Qaeda, formally pledged allegiance to the network\'s chief Osama bin Laden in a statement released online.
\"Our soldiers are at his call so that he may strike who and where he likes,\" said a text signed by the group\'s leader Abu Mossaab Abdelwadud, who also vowed to pursue the group\'s \"jihad\" or holy war against the Algerian authorities.

Bin Laden\'s right-hand man Ayman al-Zawahiri earlier announced that the group -- long known to have links to Al-Qaeda -- was now part of the network, in a video released on the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Zawahari called on the GSPC to step up its attacks against France, the United States and their allies.

\"We pray to God that they will be a thorn in the side of the American and French crusaders and their allies,\" he said.

Reacting to the tape, French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin confirmed that France was in a \"situation of risk\".

\"I have examined all the information we have at our disposal on the question, which confirms there is cause for concern,\" he told reporters.

\"We must not lower our guard. There is indeed a situation of risk and we must be continually adapting our response. We must be extremely vigilant and attentive -- as we have been now for several years,\" Villepin said.

France lifted its terrorism alert level to \"red\", the third highest on a four-colour scale, after last year\'s bombings in London.

Well....Isn\'t this nice. And timely too. Pretty soon we shan\'t have to give any more a care about \"France\" than we do Al Franksaweiner and \"Air AmerSharia\", also going down the porcelain shitter....Eh?

Another outstanding post BMG. And it certainly brought out the Bush supporting trolls and shills. I am pleased that the Democrats are also included here as part of the problem, considering the extent to which they have gone along with the madness. Another thread today talks about this fake "War on Terror," and I think that targeting Iran is yet another part of the same scheme.

What I find so particularly sad is how the "Land of the Brave" has become the land of fear, the land of cowards who are all too willing to give up the last vestage of freedom to gain some illusory security. What they don't realize is that in the process, they are transforming this country into something closer to Nazi Germany or Stalin's Soviet Union, where no dissent will be allowed, but where ruthless individuals will be able to make huge profits from war.

Check this out, go to the advanced search and do a search of replies by user ID 117252 and check it out. Also realize this isn't the only Sock that Paste Monkey has, you can check out all his posts and pretty much all of them have a Bumping Sock Monkey pop in. What's up with that JEWS MUST GO?

Aren't you content enough with being a Paste Monkey and letting the replies dictate the popularity of your worthless threads on their own? Why deploy the Sock Bumpers? C'mon Paste Monkey, it's bad enough that you're just a mindless regurgitator as it is, using the forum as your own news blog and never replying execpt a few weakass sentances or another Paste-o-gram.

If you lack writing skills, that's OK, you can always take a remedial writing class or something and try and improve, you could even ask me for help, or review my thread replies, I hardly ever paste anything, but this constant puking up somebody elses words just makes you into an obnoixious juke box that won't turn off and plays the same old crappy ABBA song like "Waterloo" that sucked ass the first thousand times we heard it.

So C'mon Paste Monkey, give us break already, at least with the sock puppet bump Monkeys. Pull the plug on the broken record machine and grab a guitar and play something yourself for a change, even if it sucks at least it'll be live. If you get boo'ed just buy the board a few rounds of Shots and pretty soon you'll start to sound pretty decent, bout 2:00 AM and six Cuervo's later, you'll be Jimi re-incarnated and everybody will be singing along with you to all those old Communist party tunes like they were the greatest songs ever written, before we start puking and the cops come and chuck us out, LOL.

Is it the Mossad? No.

Is it the CIA or al-Queda (or even al-CIAda) as some idiots would believe? No.

Is it the Neocons? No.

Believe it or not, it's non-other than a Catholic Pope, re-reading something that had been penned more than five centuries ago....And this is the cause of all the new violence and angry rhetoric. Perhaps this woman was right?

[link to www.youtube.com]

Refer back to the first article (and I quote), During his visit to Germany, the Pope quoted 14th Century Christian emperor Constantine who said the Prophet Muhammad had brought the world only "evil and inhuman" things. These words infuriated Muslims all over the world, although the Vatican said the Pope wanted to make clear that he rejected violence motivated by religion.

So, the pope entreats the Muslim community to 'spread not religion by violence of the sword', and they do what?

Any takers?

*crickets chirping* chuckle

Oh bloody that, I'll break the suspense. Just like the 'cartoon crisis' of earlier this year, they get VIOLENT AGAIN. Proving everything BAD you ever could have imagined about them as absolutely TRUE. They could have responded in an otherwise peaceful manner which would have made the pope look foolish...But bloody fuck, just as earlier this year they meet words just as cartoons with what? Violence. Where was the outcry with violence by protesting Jews worldwide when this happened?:

This is why you are so perpetually lost. You must look for the arcane and the hidden when it need not be. Staring you in the face, there it is that a fool could (and by rights should) see it, and rather you must engage fanciful dissconnected imaginings of either the (ahem) 'so-called' "NeoCons", "The Mossad", "The CIA"....(ad infinitum) and what you fail to realize is that it takes so little to even place you in opposition to them. I have to wonder....At that last moment, when you realize that you could be wrong and FIND YOURSELF in direct opposition to "Radical Islamic Ideology", will you then accuse YOURSELF of being a card-carrying member of the NeoCons, the Mossad, CIA? scared

You poor, stupid man. chuckle
