Treason in Plain Sight.
The same two Senators who insisted that the U.S. invade Iraq on false intelligence are now marketing Pakistan as the next in a series of “plausible” Evil Doers.
Their complicity runs deep. The consistency of their conduct confirms that what we see again unfolding is treason—ongoing in plain sight and, to date, with legal impunity.
With transparency, that impunity will end. With exposure, accountability will follow. The Founders made treason a capital crime for good reason.
Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman, an outspoken Jewish Zionist, have long been political partners and fellow travelers. Along with Senator Jon Kyl, a Christian Zionist from Arizona, they co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.
That bill embodied the agenda described in A Clean Break, a strategy paper crafted for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 1996. Lead author Richard Perle, also an outspoken Jewish Zionist, took over as chairman of the Defense Policy Advisory Board in 2001.
Reflecting Israeli themes, the “Clean Break Bill” began to prepare the American public for a military agenda that required only the murderous provocation of 911 to appear reasonable.
The relationship between McCain and Perle dates to the 1970s when McCain served as U.S. Navy liaison to the Senate. That’s when Perle & Company profiled him as an attractive asset—someone with a reliably pliable personality.
McCain has since proven himself one of the best assets ever. It’s no mystery why he’s routinely welcomed in Tel Aviv along with Lieberman, his travel companion and handler.
Featuring a pretty face, an electable CV and a presentable (second) wife, McCain was moved from Washington to Arizona to fill a House seat four years before the anticipated retirement of Barry Goldwater.
Known for a violent temper, a weak character and an even weaker intellect, in 1982 he was “elected” to Congress as part of a fast-growing stable of pro-Israeli assets.
Beating the Rap
Branded a true-blue American as a former prisoner of war, McCain quickly proved his mettle by assisting organized crime with a $150 billion fraud that ravaged the savings and loan industry.
That fraud was a warm-up for even larger frauds in which he, Lieberman and Kyl either played an active part or aided the fraud by their failure to act.
McCain’s career is replete with serial frauds designed to cover-up his real history. Few Americans know that he made several dozen broadcasts for the North Vietnamese while in captivity. No wonder he returned tan, fit and rested while other POWs look like, well….POWs.
If McCain could be candid with the American public, he would insist on the declassification of those broadcasts. A master of misdirection, he aided the S&L fraud while in the House and then in the Senate. When each chamber deferred to the other, McCain escaped accountability.
His history reflects a lifetime with no accountability. The brat son and grandson of four-star Navy admirals, he finished at the bottom of his class at Annapolis and went downhill from there.
McCain the War Maker
A key asset in a sprawling network of Zionist operatives, McCain laid a mental thread in the public consciousness when the Clean Break Bill called for the removal of Saddam Hussein three years before 911 and appropriated $97 million for that purpose.
Distracted by mid-term elections, Bill Clinton signed the bill into law October 31, 1998. Lost in the shuffle of contributing factors was an impeachment proceeding stemming from lies about his sexual liaisons with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
When staging such sophisticated operations, timing is everything.
After 911, McCain and Lieberman became inseparable travel companions and irrepressible advocates for the invasion of Iraq. Looking “presidential” aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt in January 2002, McCain waved an admiral’s cap while proclaiming, alongside Lieberman, “On to Baghdad.”
That was three months after 911—with Al Qaeda hiding in Afghanistan and their leader likely already dead from U.S. air attacks.
Why was McCain parroting Perle in calling for an invasion of Iraq? Whose agenda was he advancing? Whose interest was he serving?
Was he once again advancing the Zionist agenda of Perle & Co.?
When treason charges are (belatedly) filed against John McCain, what will be his defense?
Given the consequences of his conduct, a plea of ignorance will meet with little favor by an informed jury. Incompetence would be a more persuasive defense.
With McCain’s help, we were conned—again. Did he know what he was doing? Or was he just acting out his profiled personal dysfunctions, allowing himself to be used as an asset by others?
If he was so pathetic that he could be persuaded to behave like a traitor, then treason is the correct charge. Should he choose not to resign, the federal sanction should apply.
