There can now be no doubt any more that Obama is Uncle Tom to the Israel Lobby's slave master.
AP reports "A former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia resigned Tuesday from his new post as chairman of the National Intelligence Council following congressional criticism for comments about the Israeli government and alleged ties to foreign governments.
Charles Freeman's resignation came just hours after National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair said at a Senate hearing that he was standing behind his appointment of Freeman as chairman of the council, which analyzes national security issues. Freeman had not yet begun his work as chairman, and Blair said he accepted the resignation "with regret."
The council draws information and analysis from all U.S. intelligence agencies to produce national intelligence estimates. NIE's are the intelligence agencies' most comprehensive statements and are meant to be unvarnished and apolitical."
According to Ray McGovern "The Freeman flip-flop is merely the latest sign that Obama is afraid to take on the Lobby. But the world is watching the new president. Most will interpret the new president's acquiescence in this charade as a sign of weakness – of his not being his own man...Obama now has shown himself easy to push around."
"On October 5, 2007 I published an article on Israel's deliberate attempt, on June 8, 1967, to sink the USS Liberty in international waters off the Sinai, killing 34 of the Liberty crew and wounding over 170 in the process.
The lead was:
"So Who's Afraid of the Israel Lobby? Virtually everyone: Republican, Democrat – Conservative, Liberal. The fear factor is non-partisan, you might say, and palpable. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee brags that it is the most influential foreign policy lobbying organization on Capitol Hill, and has demonstrated that time and again, and not only on Capitol Hill."
The point? In June 1967, the Israelis learned that they could get away, literally, with murder and still not endanger their influence in Washington.
Events of the past weeks demonstrate that they and their Lobby are equally good at character assassination. It is embarrassingly shameful to watch President Obama acquiesce in all of this."
According to McGovern, neo-con Daniel Pipes boasted that the brains behind this gambit was none other than " Steven J. Rosen of the Middle East forum". The same Steve Rosen "who is currently on trial for violations of the Espionage Act involving the transmission of classified information intended for Israel."
Meanwhile, Christopher Ketcham, who writes for Vanity Fair, Harper’s, GQ and many other magazines, has lifted the lid on the real Israeli menace: "Israel runs one of the most aggressive and damaging espionage networks targeting the U.S."
Ketcham quotes James Bamford "regarded among journalists and intelligence officers as the nation’s expert on the workings of the NSA", as saying "Virtually the entire American telecommunications system," he avers, "is bugged by [Israeli-formed] companies with possible ties to Israel’s eavesdropping agency."
I recommend reading the entire article of you want to know the workings of the gangsters in Israel.
"Whether it’s a Democratic or Republican administration, you don’t bad-mouth Israel if you want to get ahead," says former CIA counterterrorism officer Philip Giraldi. "Most of the people in the agency were very concerned about Israeli espionage and Israeli actions against U.S. interests. Everybody was aware of it. Everybody hated it. But they wouldn’t get promoted if they spoke out. Israel has a privileged position and that’s the way things are. It’s crazy. And everybody knows it’s crazy."
Meanwhile, the truth is beginning to come out regarding Cheney's assassination squads:
