Gordon Duff: COMPROMISE AND ‘MENDING FENCES’ OBAMA’S
EXCUSE FOR “BUSINESS AS USUAL”
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
America elected Barak Obama for one reason only. We had spent years with a government found to have become utterly corrupt, a pack of criminal gangsters no better than Pinochet in Chile or Pol Pot in Cambodia. We were going to go in, put Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, Rice, Ashcroft, Gonzales along with 2 dozen top military leaders and more senior members of Congress in prison. When we were done, we would go thru the oil companies, banks, defense giants, insurance companies and more, doing the same. We hoped that when we were finally done, whoever was left would know that they were part of a government by and for the people, not employees of a criminal conspiracy.
President Obama, his backers, the Democratic Party and the boys in Congress across the aisle, however, didn’t want anything to change, it was simply their chance to cash in. We are now left with a political debate in America devoid of any public interest at all, only thieves fighting over the remains of a corpse.
The simplest thing to stay would be to demand an investigation over the illegal attack on Iraq and the national disaster to follow. We have 5000 dead Americans, over a million dead in Iraq and hundreds of billions of dollars stolen in cost overruns, missing oil, missing weapons and a cast of criminals who have convicted themselves. This one is a ‘no brainer.’ Mr. Obama, you won’t even look at this? What are you thinking?
The safe bet for the Bush boys is 9/11. They grew up looking at how a cabal in government had killed President Kennedy and managed to push the whole thing on a half wit, Lee Harvey Oswald. With a cheesy investigation run by the conspirators themselves, led by Allen Dulles, shadowy former Hitler crony, witnesses were silenced, evidence destroyed and an implausible cover story was sold to the American people.
All that was needed was a heavily infiltrated terror cell helped along by friendly Israeli airport security, Rumsfeld “standing down” our Air Forces and several black ops attacks like the Pentagon bombing/missile attack coordinated into the time frame and the stage would be set for a second term, national bankruptcy and the overthrow of our democratic government. Even when it all fell apart, films, evidence, witnesses, testimony all led the planning and execution of 9/11 to the Bush White house, and millions around the world clamored, “COVERUP!!” the perpetrators will still safe.
Too much money had been made, too many were involved and the whole rotten mess, Democrats and Republicans, would all have to rot in prison together if it came to the surface.
What was the lesson of 9/11? Today it seems to be drugs. When we privatized, not only the CIA but rendition flights that never stop at customs and death squads that can name their own victims, we were really building a national drug Mafia to take the place of the CIA and a dozen more agencies.
How can it be gotten away with? As with Iraq, billions of dollars worth of heroin/opium is flowing out of Afghanistan, enough to pay off governments in the region, military leaders, friendly warlords, unfriendly Taliban and hundreds of key players in Washington and elsewhere. Not only can we fly tons of drugs around the world, but we can murder anyone who tries to stop us, law enforcement or competitors as “terrorists.”
Will we ever look into the hundreds of billions of dollars bilked out of the American people, theft going on still, every minute, from rigged gasoline prices? Again, the same answer, a flood of money, enough to buy Congress, enough to own the White house, enough to buy any newspaper, any network.
We could name a dozen scandals, two dozen. Everything our government touches is corrupt. Nothing is done without payoffs somewhere or it would “die in committee.” We have no government except to steal. Without theft, we would have no military. They are the enforcers for the gangsters, with the real dirty-work contracted out to “out of town” hit teams, the “private contractors” who now number in the hundreds of thousands, enough to overthrow our government, since our real army is being held in camps in Germany, Afghanistan, Iraq and thru the Persian Gulf and Horn of Africa. There are no troops left to defend America.
When did it start? Who is to blame? Look for those people in their 60s and 70s and ask them who killed Kennedy. If they say “Oswald” then you know where it began. It began when decent Americans gave up caring.
