"Weapons of Mass Deception"


Did Cheney Out Plame?

It looks like the FBI and the Justice Department are finally doing something about prosecuting the neocons who outed the CIA agent, Valerie Plame, wife of Joseph Wilson, who served as ambassador to Gabon and told the world Bush's Niger uranium claim was hogwash.

"According to [federal law-enforcement officials] sources, John Hannah and Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, were the two Cheney employees [facing possible prosecution]," reports Richard Sale. "The strategy of the FBI is to make clear to Hannah 'that he faces a real possibility of doing jail time' as a way to pressure him to name superiors, one federal law-enforcement official said."

Let's hope he names Cheney and all of the other Bushite neocons responsible for invading Iraq.

Of course, this may be a way for Bush to clean the slate before the election. However, if true, this is a risky strategy because there is no telling what Hannah and Libby will tell the FBI and federal prosecutors.

Both Hannah and Libby are staunch Zionists. Hannah worked for the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), a Zionist think-tank in Washington. "WINEP's founding director, Martin Indyk, had previously been research director of AIPAC which, then as now, focuses much of its efforts on Congress," writes Disinfopedia. "Indyk developed WINEP into a highly effective think tank devoted to maintaining and strengthening the US-Israel alliance through advocacy in the media and lobbying the executive branch." WINEP thoroughly colonized the Clinton administration. "When the Bush administration came to office in 1989, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy was the nongovernmental organization with the greatest influence over U.S. Middle East policy," writes Joel Beinin. "It operates an effectively targeted spin machine focused on the central goal of promoting the U.S. strategic relationship with Israel." In other words, WINEP specializes in sending your money to Israel.

Lewis Libby is one of the key players behind Bush's "pre-emptive force" doctrine. Libby and Paul Wolfowitz wrote "a draft version of the Defense Policy Guidance [that] served as a template for the founding statement of principles of the Project for a New American Century, which was signed by a who's who list of hawks and neocons who now serve in the current administration, including Cheney, Libby, Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Elliot Abrams, Peter Rodman and Zalmay Khalilzad," explains the Interhemispheric Resource Center. Libby was a lawyer for convicted felon and Israeli spy Mark Rich, whom Clinton pardoned as he exited office. "Sources in and around the Bush Administration have reported that Lewis Libby has emerged as one of the most rabid 'chicken-hawks' in Washington," Jeffrey Steinberg claims. "Libby has been identified as protector of the nest of Sharonists in the Pentagon and State Department."

If the Justice Department and the FBI are serious about going after Hannah and Libby, it can only be good news. However, things have a way of going astray in Washington -- and criminals such as Hannah and Libby often are pardoned or let off the hook after pleading to lesser charges. Iran-Contra is a perfect example.
