State Department Seeks ‘Viable’ Iranian Candidates

Now Accepting Applications

The State Department seeks a ‘viable’ Iranian political candidate to lead and channel the current dissenter factions in Iran to topple the current Anti-US regime and replace it with one certified and approved by the United States Government and US ‘special’ business interests. The latest developments in Iran have presented our ‘real’ policy makers with a golden opportunity to execute their plan for Iran and to at long last achieve their objectives. The previous administration’s bold and hawkish methodology and their overly used and exhausted ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ and ‘evilization’ rhetoric failed to achieve these objectives, which are shared by those who actually ‘matter’ in our country. Today we have a new administration brought to power by brilliantly and masterfully utilizing the rhetoric of ‘change.’ This new slogan of ‘change’ includes a new style and methodology in addressing long-sought Iran objectives. This opportunity is mutual, where the Iranian candidate of our choice will enjoy not only the symbolic power position supported and protected by US intelligence and military services, but enormous monetary benefits he or she will be able and allowed to parasitically extract from the resources and people of Iran. This may be your opportunity.

Listed below are the candidate qualification criteria and ‘some’ of the unclassified major benefits we are committed to providing the chosen ‘viable’ candidate. Also attached are two appendixes to provide you with examples of ‘real life’ candidates we have successfully installed and supported. In order to make them even more relevant we chose examples from your neighboring countries. Once you submit your application you will receive an initial package containing additional examples, similar to those listed in these two appendices, in much greater detail.

Candidate Qualifications

  • Applicants must hold an Advanced Degree obtained in the United States or the United Kingdom, during which time extracurricular activities will have occurred and relationships formed. Candidates with degrees obtained elsewhere may be considered on a case by case basis with evidence of exceptional qualifications in other criteria.
  • Applicants must provide evidence of previous covert or overt relationship(s) with the US intelligence apparatus, preferably the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), or its UK counterpart, MI6.
  • Applicants should have previous formal or informal connections with ‘key’ nongovernmental agencies (NGOs) and or think tanks involved in ‘development’ and/or ‘endowing democracy’, supported by US Government agencies and/or congressionally designated funding.
  • Applicants are favored who possess an appealing criminal record. Record may include, but not necessarily be limited to: successful executions of fraud and embezzlement schemes, money laundering, bribery - as either recipient or donor, weapons smuggling, and/or mid to high level international narcotics trafficking. Candidates will be credited with their spouses’ criminal records.
  • Applicants will be screened for an Interesting Bill of Mental Health, with the following preferred conditions: Pathological Lying Tendencies; Narcissism; Sadistic Mindset; Non-debilitating Psychotic Behavior. Those inflicted with moral, ethical, or conscientious predispositions need not apply.
  • Applicants preferred with immediate family members connected to established mafia and/ or similar underground criminal groups and/or their related financial institutions, whether in Iran or elsewhere.
  • Applicants should be exceptionally experienced in the art of ‘Multiple Image Projection’, with ability to smoothly but rapidly switch from a pious image satisfactory to the mullah sector, to a modern and progressive image to pacify the youth segment, to a pragmatic business-minded image to please the business (Bazaar) sector, to a patriotic nationalist image to garner support from the military.
  • Applicants will be required to successfully complete our ‘BS detector’ exam, designed to test a candidate’s ability to deliver an expansive repertoire of ‘BS’ promises and messages undetected by the general population. This is not to be confused with an ordinary ‘polygraph test’, which is used for criminal suspects and lower level public servants. This sophisticated measuring system is solely designed to measure a political candidate’s ability to deliver ‘BS’. Further, the requirement to take this test is not ‘discriminatory’ to Middle Eastern political candidates. US presidential candidates are also required to pass this test before they are selected and declared ‘viable’ by our establishment and the media. For further analysis see our ‘BS’ record breaking 2008 presidential candidate.
  • Applicants must evidence willingness and make a commitment to take the ‘US Ally Pledge’ - ‘thou shall always put US strategic and resources interests above the irrelevant public interest in Iran.’ This pledge is also known as the ‘Mi Casa, Su Casa Pledge,’ meaning, you consider your country, its resources, its strategic location, ours.

Benefits Provided

  • You will be provided with necessary logistical support to enable you to build a positive international image in order to garner domestic and international support for your candidacy and post election rule. A quick look at our record in this area will evidence our successful dominance in national and international PR.
  • You will be provided with direct and indirect military, educational and development aid worth billions of dollars. We will leave the allocation and consumption of this monetary assistance completely up to you. You may do as you wish, as you please.
  • We will ensure that you secure additional external and international aid for the duration of your presidency. In addition to direct military aid and indirect ‘democratization & development’ aid, you will be granted a considerable allotment from IMF, and as indicated above, you will have complete freedom to consume, disseminate, waste, misdirect, and/or embezzle as you wish. No questions will be asked.
  • You and your regime will benefit from our direct and indirect participation in your security and protection. You will have at your disposal the intelligence we collect on your dissenters and those in opposition factions. We will train your security and intelligence forces with our state of the art technology and methodology. This will include our intense and enhanced interrogation techniques and associated video capture and photography. During the initial training period, until you accumulate your own prisoners and detainees, we will provide you with subjects selected from among our own detainees globally. In addition, we will designate up to two of our special Gulfstream jets to exclusively assist you in your extraordinary renditions - reserved for your special and high profile dissenters.
  • You and your immediate family will be granted US and/or UK citizenship status in case of any unlikely future regime failure. This will be supplemented with safe financial havens for you to deposit any and all funds you gather prior to and throughout your presidency. No questions will be asked regarding the sources of these funds, and any external attempts to question and or investigate them will be tactfully quashed.
  • You will be guaranteed immunity from any international charges and or prosecution throughout your presidency and afterwards. Similarly, you will be retroactively immunized from any and all charges and or prosecutions that may deal with your deeds prior to your candidacy.
  • You will not be subjected to prohibitions regarding acquiring weapons of mass destruction. In fact we may indirectly assist you in obtaining and developing such weapons. Our record should be a sufficient indicative of this pledge (please refer to Pakistan & AQ Khan, also Pre- 1988 Iraq and Saddam Hussein).
  • You will be given a permanent ‘pass’ for any of your direct participation in previous and future Human Rights violations. All our chosen and installed third world leaders carry similar passes. Any international and/or organizational attempt to bring charges will be successfully quashed.

Appendix A

Turkey and Former Prime Minister Tansu Ciller

Former Prime Minister of Turkey, Ms. Tansu Ciller is a perfect example of a Middle Eastern leader who was selected, declared ‘viable,’ supported, promoted, installed, and protected by the United States. As can be seen Ms. Ciller met many if not all of the qualifications criteria listed above:

1. Ms. Ciller completed her advanced degrees in the United States - M.S. from the University of New Hampshire and PhD from the University of Connecticut. During this extended period while she resided in the US we had ample time and opportunity to train and mold her for the leadership position in Turkey.

2. Ms. Ciller was granted citizenship in the United States. In order to keep this fact from tarnishing her image during her candidacy campaign in Turkey and afterwards, we designated her US citizenship status ‘Classified and Top Secret’ on the grounds of Sensitive Diplomatic Relations. To this date, despite all attempts, Turkish authorities have been unable to have these files opened.

3. Ms. Ciller and her husband Ozer Ciller were closely involved with certain CIA operations prior to and after her return to Turkey, and their intimate relationship continued throughout her tenure as Prime Minister of the Republic of Turkey. In fact, the CIA’s Roger Tamraz (see BCCI) was their partner in two front companies: ‘Emperyal’, which acquired and operated six (6) Casinos in Turkmenistan, and, ‘Lapis,’ involved with the oil pipeline project.

4. Ms. Ciller and her husband, before being considered ‘viable’ by us, already had an established shady financial past, including involvement in an embezzlement scandal connected to the collapse of ‘Istanbul Bankasi’, one of Turkey’s largest private banks. This along with involvements fortified Ms. Ciller’s qualification criteria when compared to competing applicants.

5. Ms. Ciller understood and participated in Turkey’s important strategic and operational role in the supply and transportation of heroin. She skillfully and very aggressively combined and furthered the marriage between the state military-police-intelligence and the underground heroin industry. Her notoriety even reached the German Courts, where she was accused of supporting and protecting the drug mafia - active not only in Turkey but elsewhere, including Europe and Central Asia.

6. Ms. Ciller played a direct role in scandals involving corruption, embezzlement, and state sponsored terrorism and narcotics operations. The best known scandal, one of her masterpieces, is known as ‘Susurluk’. Ciller and her husband - who is known for his mafia links and dealings, were directly implicated in Susurluk. The high profile kept by Ms. And Mr. Ciller during these scandals and their handling of them afterwards significantly bolstered their ‘value’ and ‘viability’ for us.

7. Ms. Ciller’s ‘known’ wealth is confirmed to be over $50 million, all of which was gained after she became a ‘’viable’ candidate supported directly by the US. A large portion of her investments and accounts are in the United States. We will not list the exact amount at this point, however, the selected candidate will be given an opportunity to see the ‘real’ dollar amount, and even consult with Ms. Ciller directly.

We can list many other desirable qualities of former Prime Minister Ciller, however for this appendix the above points should suffice. Interested candidates can conduct their own research and compare their qualifications to Ms. Ciller to get a better understanding of our ‘viability’ criteria for those candidates we select, support, promote, install, and sustain in ‘that’ part of the world. As you can see, we helped Ms. Ciller weather all accusations, investigations, and official charges, whether in Turkey or internationally. We made sure she and her government continuously received our military aid, development funds, and of course IMF funds. How she chose to spend, divert, or ‘lose’ these funds were left completely up to her, with no questions asked. Today she enjoys her incredible, almost fairytale like lifestyle, made possible with the enormous wealth accumulated through her official position, gained and sustained by our backing. We are pleased to take full credit for this. We will guarantee similar benefits for our candidate of choice in Iran.

Appendix B

Pakistan & Former Prime Minister Bhutto

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Ms. Benazir Bhutto provides another appropriate profile of our ‘ideal and desired’ leadership candidate for your part of the world. As can be seen there are remarkable similarities between Ms. Bhutto and Ms. Ciller:

1. Ms. Bhutto obtained her bachelor degree in the United States - BA from Radcliffe College at Harvard University. Later she attended Oxford University in the UK where she pursued International Law and Diplomacy. She spent a total of eight years in the US and UK - 1969-1977. Again, this time was ideal for the satisfactory grooming of Ms. Bhutto for ‘installment.’

2. Ms. Bhutto was granted British Citizenship and maintained her dual citizenship throughout her career as a candidate and later as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Her husband, the current President of Pakistan, also received British citizenship and has maintained his dual citizenship to date. The perceived conflict of interest back in her home country did not prove to be an obstacle for ‘us’ or the Bhuttos, thanks to our PR and global image projection activities.

3. Ms. Bhutto and her husband maintained intimate relationships with the underground economy and high level players of the heroin pipeline. Ms. Bhutto was a close ally, protector, and intimate friend of convicted Pakistani Drug Baron and Former Parliamentarian, Ayub Afridi, who like Bhutto, was given protection and safe haven in Dubai, one of our closest allies. These relationships and direct connections, some of which were directly inherited from her father, significantly bolstered Ms. Bhutto’s value for us and our British counterparts.

4. Ms. Bhutto and her husband proved to be desirably ambitious and admirably skilled in using their power, position, and connections, together with our protection, to misuse their proceeds of corruption and embezzlements to accumulate great wealth. Today her husband, who inherited this wealth, is the fifth richest man in Pakistan with a net worth of nearly $2 billion. As confirmation of their successful accumulation of wealth, in the 90s Ms. Bhutto and her husband purchased a 20-bedroom mansion in Surrey, England. They were known for their proficiency in receiving ‘kickbacks.’ Just the kickbacks they received from Swiss Cargo Inspection Companies alone were worth $12 million, which they stashed wisely in offshore companies in Swiss bank accounts. Ms. Bhutto’s record truly authenticates the future benefits of becoming our ‘ideal and viable’ candidate.

5. Ms. Bhutto’s Bill of Mental Health was not of much interest. However, she was permitted to transfer credits from her husband, Mr. Ali Asif Zardari. His is a far more interesting mental health record, made all the more interesting since she pledged to place him in an official position of power. He and his ‘mental health’ conditions proved to be extremely useful in ‘necessary’ operations involving murder, drug smuggling, corruption, and embezzlement, thus our making an exception for Ms. Bhutto was justified in this particular case.

6. Ms. Bhutto demonstrated tremendous talent in dealing with weapons of mass destruction from both sides of the issue. She successfully presented her image as a proponent of nuclear nonproliferation, while ambitiously pursuing proliferation domestically and internationally. Even AQ Khan had to admit who was the ‘real boss’ when it came to supplying Iran with centrifuge equipment and drawings from 1988 to 1990. Ms. Bhutto’s clever and original plot to use her family dentist in deals related to providing ‘rogue’ regimes with nuclear technology was awe inspiring even among the crustiest WMD dealers in leadership positions.

7. Ms. Bhutto exhibited great skills in ‘Multiple Image Projection’. With our direct backing and promotion she quickly sold her image as a needed progressive, democratic, and pro humanitarian leader for Pakistan. Just as quickly, at home in Pakistan, she was able to establishherself as equal to if not better than her dictatorial predecessors by sanctioning and carrying out extrajudicial killings, torture, persecution of religious minorities, and arbitrary detention. She also determinedly took extraordinary measures to muzzle the independent media. These skills were also applied to her utilization and exploitation of feministic support. At the same time she was portraying herself as a progressive and feminist example for ‘that’ part of the world, she was making deals and establishing close ties with the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, notorious for their abuse of women…

As with ‘Exhibit A’ we can list many other desirable qualities of former Prime Minister Bhutto, but for this appendix the above points should suffice. We actively, directly and indirectly, selected, supported and protected Ms. Bhutto prior to, during, and after her position as PM. We provided her with billions of dollars in aid and billions of dollars in IMF loans. She in return was given complete discretion to use these funds to purchase our weapons, and of course to accumulate her and her family’s enormous wealth, during and after her position as PM. We shielded her despite serious charges and evidence of corruption and embezzlement brought against her and her husband, in Pakistan and worldwide, over nearly two decades. We continue this support and courting to date, after her assassination, through her husband, President Zardari. We will guarantee similar benefits for our candidate of choice in Iran.

    The amount of each with undesirable peccadilloes is astounding… especially for republicans.

    Here's another 'can't touch'.
    Butto gave a November 2007 interview to David Frost in where she mentioned that Osama bin Laden had been murdered by a close associate (Omar Sheik) around the time of the Tora Bora days.
    The clip was even edited out by YouTubefor awhile but the cat was already out of the bag.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnychOXj9Tg
    Butto was assassinated a few months after this public slip.
    The MSM has not discussed this statement in any manner that I've heard.

  6. Awesome again Sibel. Humor is a very powerful tool to shed light on the dark things, eh? John Perkins described how this all works and since then I have looked at everything with better eyes. Thank you for widening the scope even more.

  7. greatdogs says:

    Sibel, most excellent post!

    Will Part II be the unsuccessful candidates or those who strayed from the "program"? Names that come to mind are Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Aristede, and as previously mentioned Ms Butto.

    What a hell of a way to run a foreign policy!

  8. Kingfisher says:

    "John Perkins described how this all works and since then I have looked at everything with better eyes."

    The Perkin’s book, the first one at least, is very interesting. I am not sure I would take it all literally though. I think he describes the dynamic very well, but probably uses a very creative literary device to do so. For example: I have serious doubts that he was employed or sheep-dipped into the NSA; however we absolutely use international financial aid as a tool of influence and dependency. Much better, and more scholarly imo is James Henry’s The Blood Bankers: Tales from the Global Underground Economy.

    Islamic Leaders Visit Sarajevo to Support Bosnia Government. The New York Times, February 3, 1994.

    "Two Islamic Prime Ministers — Benazir Bhutto of Pakistan and Tansu Ciller of Turkey — visited Sarajevo today to show their support for the Bosnian Government."

    Any scoops on that one Sibel? Red Arrow ATGM's maybe?

    I heard AQ tried to schwack Marc Grossman in Bosnia once in the 90's. Have you heard that too Sibel?

    It could be true, it could part of some groups IO, could be both. What triggers your BS antenna Sibel?

  13. Metemneurosis says:

    Speaking of things that stink in the coverage of Iran there was on youtube a video I first saw 3,4, 5 days ago of a young woman dying in the streets, blood coming out of her mouth and nose. I'm sure many of you have seen it. Various news agencies here were able to find out pretty damn quickly exactly who she was. Or at least they claim to know. Anyway now Fox and others are touting her as an "angel of freedom". She's perfect because she's actually quite pretty and in some pictures looks very western.

    Also it's interesting that if you went to youtube yesterday there was a special bar at the top of every page on the site touting their new iran channel. I didn't do a screen capture and it's not coming up now, so I can't give you the exact wording but I seem to remember the word 'citizen' was in there somewhere, evoking ideas of our communal duties and bringing to mind the relation between a people and their government.

  14. Sibel Edmonds says:

    KingFisher: 'My BS Antenna': I've been getting info from the ground, and the reports are covering one side only. Some among the protesters have been setting cars on fire, engaging in violence, etc. Certain entities who want to trigger more violence, harsher response, thus more international attention…

    A woman whose face was pixilated said she had carried a "war grenade" in her hand-bag. "I was influenced by VOA Persian and the BBC because they were saying that security forces were behind most of the clashes," she said.
    "I saw that it was us protesting … who were making riots. We set on fire public property, we threw stones … we attacked people's cars and we broke windows of people's houses."

    Then, lately, this coverage of Shah's son. WTH?!! That criminal literally SOB who is dying to get a piece of this, his long-held dream of going back and getting his crown…

  15. Sibel Edmonds says:

    Metemneurosis: Interesting observation. I keep saying 'wag the dog' because in Nashville they wrote a song for this woman. I truly feel sorry for the young life taken away like this; it's terrible…however, you see how they are exploiting it? Go and watch 'wag the dog' again. I almost looked for a 'kitten' in related pictures!!!!

    It's almost like playing 'reverse psychology.' The administration sits back, appears cool, and let the people get fired up and demand action…so they will reluctantly respond to the public demand (made possible with intensive PR as we see) and 'do something.'

    As I mentioned above, now Shah's son is entering the picture. Nauseating

  16. Mizgîn says:

    BRAVO!!

    I have always said that Ciller's corruption was legendary even by Turkish standards. I'm glad you mentioned her citizenship since it's something that no one wants to remember.

    Reza Shah Pahlavi getting involved certainly makes everything better, doesn't it? . . . "bullets piercing," sniff, sniff, "our beloved," sniff, sniff, "Neda!" Sniff, sniff. . .

    Yeah. Right.

    As far as I'm concerned, the news presented in the US/UK media on this matter is not to be touched with a ten-foot pole. Iranian security forces have been doing the same kinds of things in Iranian Kurdistan for years. Last year there was a video of a young Kurd who had been shot by pasdars the same way that Neda had. Very similar images. They wrapped him in a blanket and left him where he fell.

    Of course, no one noticed that.

    Given that the Americans and the British have been so hot to bomb Iran, the media frenzy over the current situation is total propaganda and hypocrisy. But it does make a nice diversion from all the civilians they're blasting to pieces in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Thnaks to Sibel and those who have left comments. These highly informative posts are precious, and raise (or force) the discussion to a higher level, even, I should think, for those who disagree with the analyses presented here. Thanks also to Kingfisher for the suggested

    Just discovered this site. Am very happy to see Sibel Edmonds alive and well and commenting. Hope to have the whole story from her one day.

    There's an article by Gareth Porter over at Counterpunch :

    Investigating the Khobar Tower Bombing

    mentioning Louis Freeh's role in fobbing off the bombing on Iran rather than tracing it to Al Qaeda.

    I'd be very interested to learn what Sibel Edmonds knows about Louis Freeh.

    He seems to me to be the tool, knowing or un-, that allowed the 9/11 plot to go forward "undetected".

    Check the timeline information detailing Freeh's activity and inactivity during the buildup to 9/11 at The Road through 9/11

    I will check and correct that link (Ciller); thank you!

    "Thanks also to Kingfisher for the suggested reading."

    My pleasure Hannah, I am glad they are of interest. There is one book that has little to do with subjects discussed here, but I must recommend it to everyone because it is so wonderful, and brings me hope when I am otherwise a cynical realist. It is called Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time (here is a nice review ) and it is by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. Everyone I have recommended it to, from progressives to military personnel, has loved it.

    Sibel, I would be interested in seeing your reading list. Maybe you could do a recommended reading list. I am most interested in good material on the Turkish Deep State, and activities in central asia.

    Here's an interesting aricle by Robert Parry that ties the two sides of the Iranian election debacle to the October Surprise of Reagan's election in 1980.

    http://www.opednews.com/articles/Iran-Divided–the-Octobe-by-Robert-Parry-090624-493.html

  22. John Perkins has pretty much laid this sort of thing bare, hasn't he?

    From "Confessions"

    Iran illustrated beyond any doubt that the US was a nation laboring to deny the truth of our role in the world. It seemed incomprehensible that we could have been so misinformed about the shah and the tide of hatred that had surged against him. Even those of us in companies like MAIN, which had offices and personnel in the country, had not known. I felt certain that the NSA and the CIA must have seen what had been so obvious to Torrijos even as far back as my meeting with him in 1972, but that our own intelligence community had intentionally encouraged us all to close our eyes.

  23. Holy Kabuki, Batman! I just read the Robert Parry piece and I gotta say: this whole Iran thing is just too weird for words, but Parry seems to have a pretty good handle on it. He credit someone as quoting Mousavi feeling betrayed by the Reagan folks: "We did everything you guys wanted. We got rid of the Democrats. We did everything we could, but the Americans aren't delivering [and] they are dealing with the Iraqis."

    Moldy cheeses, and it was the Likud who ushered in Reagan? Thanks, guys! Thanks a million. We needed that like herniated ulcer.

  24. The new standard for 'scathing'.

    Repost from Jim Corbett:
    Now we arrive at Destabilization 2.0, really not much more than a slight tweak of Destabilization 1.2. The only thing different is that now Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social media are being employed to amplify the effect of (and the impression of) internal protests. Once again, Soros henchman Evgeny Morozov is extolling the virtues of the new Tehran Twitter revolution and the New York Times is writing journalistic hymns to the power of internet new media… when it serves western imperial interests. We are being asked to believe that this latest version of the very (very) old program of U.S. corporate imperialism is the real deal. While there is no doubt that the regime of Ahmadenijad is reprehensible and the feelings of many of the young protestors in Iran are genuine, you will forgive me for questioning the motives behind the monolithic media support for the overthrow of Iran's government and the installation of Mir-Houssein "Butcher of Beirut" Mousavi.

    Anon The Neocon-

    Is it too much to ask if you were "zaverbovana" in Leningrad Mrs. Edmonds?

    What do you have against dual citizenship? Or are you one to care if Obama is even a natural born US citizen? No – because in this case it doesn't matter, suddenly. Everything matters when the CIA is behind it. I get it.

    Dual citizenship is legal, and as far as I know, our own government has plenty of duals. Are we to purge them now?

    The perceived conflict of interest back in her home country did not prove to be an obstacle for ‘us’ or the Bhuttos, thanks to our PR and global image projection activities.

    Please show me how Bhutto's dual citizenship prejudiced her policies against Pakistanis? Right- that's why she was murdered. Got it.

    On that page, how did our global PR machine do anything for her? No one cares about Pakistan, except suburbs in London. You have evidence that BM or Saatchi were on contract? Lord Bell perhaps?

    You say Ciller was CIA, and her husband. HOw do you know this? Yes, there was a trial in Germany. Name me one Turkish organisation in Germany, especially among the Muslim ones, who are clean?

    The world is not perfect Mrs. Edmonds, and its not the CIA's fault.

    Bhutto had absolutely nothing to do with drugs. And you are slandering her. Rashid admitted to the conflict between DEA and CIA in keeping Pakistan on our side – and you distort his words.

    Today her husband, who inherited this wealth, is the fifth richest man in Pakistan with a net worth of nearly $2 billion.

    Crime!! He has money – its a crime!

    Yes, they took kickbacks. And would you be for going after all the crooks in the third world? It would make our present foreign policy look isolationist – if we took the jurisdiction to do so!! Something tells me, you would not back us.

    As per Khan's admissions. Want to use it in a court of law? I can see the credibility.

    Yes, we supported Bhutto. Was that a crime? Is supporting someone a crime? So why not stand up against Obama, for supporting Ahmedi-nejad?

    I get it – America – bad.

  27. Kingfisher says:

    "Bhutto had absolutely nothing to do with drugs."
    No political or tribal leader in Afghanistan or Pakistan has absolutely nothing to do with drugs. Here husband was involved in drugs. Haji Ayub Afridi, a massive heroin broker, allied with Bhutto to oust Sharif in 1993. Her party, the PPP, has long had the patronage of, and she was very close to Mirza Iqbal Baig, who was one of the biggest dealers in Pakistan.

    "Today her husband, who inherited this wealth, is the fifth richest man in Pakistan with a net worth of nearly $2 billion.

    Crime!! He has money – its a crime!"
    As I said, Zidari was involved in drugs.

    I know this may seem off topic but it all ties into virtually everything on this site. I came across some information that, in part I learned a few years back in an article similar to the one I am posting. This just blew me away and helped me understand how we got to where we are today. Once I realized and understood that our country was dramatically altered in 1871 into a Corporation with Washington D.C. as Corporate H.Q. everything became clearer to me, including 9-11 as well as the information in your "pilot" article. It starts out slow but becomes an eye-opener as it was for me.

    Please read the following article at this link http://www.serendipity.li/jsmill/us_corporation.htm (as it is a few words too large to post here) titled "The United States Isn't a Country, It's a Corporation" then watch the short clip at the link below VERY carefully.

    You will come to a new understanding of the workings our government and why they routinely violate the laws they are sworn to protect or at least that we THINK they are. Please give me your take on this. One other point, James Traficant made a speech on this before Congress and mentioned all of this while most of Congress walked out during his tirade, he was later found guilty of corruption charges (without being allowed to call witnesses on his behalf) and has been imprisoned for the past eight years set to be released later this year:

    No political or tribal leader in Afghanistan or Pakistan has absolutely nothing to do with drugs. Here husband was involved in drugs. Haji Ayub Afridi, a massive heroin broker, allied with Bhutto to oust Sharif in 1993. Her party, the PPP, has long had the patronage of, and she was very close to Mirza Iqbal Baig, who was one of the biggest dealers in Pakistan.

    You are referencing the present president, Asif Zardari. He has , I repeat, absolutely nothing to do with drugs. Yes, in Pakistan that's impossible, and so when I hear someone referencing Zardari and drugs, the reference is clearly suggesting that Zardari somehow used his wealth and political ties, in the drug market.

    You know, it's so easy to make the charge – it's that much harder to prove.

    Zardari knew big drug-barons due to his wealth- who doesn't in Pakistan? But it doesn't imply he made any money off the trade.

    His wealth originates from both his family (Zar-dari – Kauffman/Treasurer) and first and foremost from the Bhutto family!!!

    When it comes to Bhutto, Ralph Peters had some insight- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jiMiQS5zG8&feature=player_embedded

    I hope viewers pick up on the line "she mislead us". Since everyone here thinks its big bad CIA always responsible for everything. That and US foreign policy.

    Like I hinted previously- if you really want democracy in the world, then get ready for a crusade. And if you aren't ready for one – then forget democracy – abroad, and eventually, in America.

    I assume that the last Anon was anon the Neocon. No one here has suggested that the CIA is responsible for all the evil in the world. As I pointed out previously Sibel, in fact, has already had some unflattering comments to make about Bhutto and Ciller. You, in keeping with all other neocons, confuse honest criticism with being unpatriotic, when in fact it's the most patriotic way to be an American. I think this is a reflection, in general, of a mind set obsessed with power, because of course neocons would rather people not mess in their business or criticize them. Therefore they are the most un-American.

    But, as to your point about democracy here at home requiring a crusade, I agree totally – against the neocons first and foremost, the power obsessed in general, and anyone who has an inherent hatred for dissent.

    Viva la revolution. Now I have to go get some pizza.

    What gets me is Anon’s defense of the Agency; that is very unbecoming of neoconservative. Most people don’t understand this, but there has been a mutual distrust between the two going back at least to Team B in the 1970’s. I often defend the agency often from its detractors, but it is not beyond reproach.

    @Metemneurosis,
    I would caution that obsession with power or hatred for dissent is not exclusive to neoconservatives specifically, or the right in general. These are matters of the human psyche, and can be found in the faculty lounge at the most liberal of academic institutions, just as it can be found at the American Enterprise Institute.

    I agree it is a natural human tendency to dislike those who disagree with any strongly held belief of ours. It's inevitable and it's something that some are better at controlling than others. I'm quite aware that it can be found on the left as well as the right. My views have always been an odd mix of both left and right actually, but years ago I was much closer to Anon the neocon's position than I am now. Back then I was acutely aware of a certain hypocritical intolerance among those on the left who wanted to claim to be the most tolerant. But in any case nothing I said implied in anyway that the neocons have a monopoly on lust for power or hatred of dissent. That's why I said 'neocons . . . and the power obsessed in general' and those who hate dissent. The intent was to imply that the latter two groups were larger than the neocons alone.
