The scandals lately all seem so reminiscent of Lewinsky and Iraq. I have to wonder if they all have more to do with Syria than anything else.

Peter Beinart on Netanyahu

Quote:
But the problem with this more charitable analysis is that Netanyahu has been brazenly intervening in American politics—often with an eye to screwing Democratic presidents—since long before he became obsessed with Iran. It’s just the way he rolls. In 1989, as Israel’s deputy foreign minister, Netanyahu pushed Congress so hard to scuttle the nascent dialogue between the United States and the PLO that James Baker briefly had him banned from the State Department. In 1998, three days after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, Netanyahu, in a previous stint as Israel’s prime minister, addressed a rally organized by Clinton tormenter Jerry Falwell. Falwell later said, “It was all planned by Netanyahu as an affront to Clinton,” who was pushing Netanyahu to fulfill Israel’s obligations under the Oslo agreement by ceding significant land in the West Bank to the Palestinians.

Perhaps because of his deep ties to America—he attended high school, college, and graduate school in the United States, and held U.S. citizenship until he was in his 30s—Netanyahu has long exuded an extraordinary confidence that he could make the American government bend to his will. In his memoir, Dennis Ross recalls that after Netanyahu’s first meeting with Bill Clinton as prime minister, Clinton remarked in bewilderment, “He thinks he is the superpower and we are here to do what he requires.”

In other words, Netanyahu’s decision to publicly call out Hillary Clinton over Iran last week, soon after his tirade against U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro, is not only about Iran. It’s about Netanyahu’s general belief that when push comes to shove, U.S. leaders can be moved in the direction he wants them to go. ...

Also, this interesting little tidbit on one of the grand old cheerleaders, whose staff gets payed to hack the phones of the important ones(not to mention non-important celebrities): Israel awards first Golan oil drilling license - Globes

The Mission of Syria at the United Nations


It's almost too predictable to even be considered entertaining.

It's not a huge secret that Israel and other parties want the US to be "more firm" on both Syria and Iran, with Israel already getting impatient and bombing Syria on their own just in past weeks. Obama isn't publicly going along with openly arming the foreign backed terrorists euphemistically referred to as "Syrian Rebels", which even many of his own colleagues in congress think he should be doing. Why wouldn't they use contrived scandals to apply pressure and get their way? Considering the type of bullying they're already well known for? Along with the dodgy dossiers and faux intelligence they peddled to get their way on Iraq in '03(and prior to that as well)? Not to mention Murdoch's reputation, now that he also has a large economic stake in regime changing Syria?

I suppose they could be going after Obama just because he's black, though I don't believe that's why Cynthia McKinney was run out of her seat either.

I think you need to add an extra layer of tinfoil.

Did Netanyahu not interfere in the US elections to try and get what he thought would be a better US president? Why would he stop interfering now? Especially as he's done it before? I have a hard time seeing how their blatant "run-up to war" propaganda against Syria is probably entirely seperate from the contrived scandals against Obama, I mean he's one of a handful of people who seems to be dragging his feet. I think it's obvious Murdoch, the owner of Faux News and other media outlets, has a huge stake in it as well, would anyone have a problem questioning his own motives?

I'm sorry, remind me again what the hell the Israeli Prime Minister has to do with whether American politicians in the Republican Party may have altered emails purportedly exchanged between members of the American government regarding an attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which several employees of the Department of State of the United States of America were killed?

Even if your half-baked paranoid ramblings had any resemblance to reality, you're still failing to grasp that an attempt to weaken our current Presidential administration and our current State Department leadership would not alter American foreign policy so as to be more proactive on issues relating to Iran. If anything, it would have the opposite effect: senior State Department officials would resign and have to be replaced, various staff would be shifted around, diplomatic events would be postponed, etc. In other words, the only effect that such a scandal would have would be to make our foreign policy officials pay far less attention to Iran, or Syria, or anywhere else because there would be so much turmoil back home.

But like I said, that would presume that those paranoid conspiracy theories bore any resemblance to reality. The most likely explanation, the most blatantly fucking obvious one, would be that American politicians in the Republican Party were acting to try to gain a temporary domestic political advantage by trying to turn a tragic loss of life into a political scandal. It is also possible, of course, that incompetence played a role, or there was some sort of mixup or transcription error or who knows what else that would not necessarily be malicious, to result in the differences between these documents.

But please, don't let me interrupt you while you jack off to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

If Obama is not to blame, Israel is. That's really all you need to know.
