Bolton Flunky Fleitz Raises Stakes for Iran – Antiwar.com Blog

June 2, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

On a recent TV appearance, I was asked about whistleblowing, but the experience brought back to mind a crystal-clear example of how, before the Iraq War, CIA careerists were assigned “two bosses” – CIA Director George Tenet and John Bolton, the Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, the arch-neocon who had been thrust on an obedient Secretary of State Colin Powell.

CIA “analyst” Frederick Fleitz took the instructions quite literally, bragging about being allowed to serve, simultaneously, “two bosses” — and becoming Bolton’s “enforcer.” Fleitz famously chided a senior intelligence analyst at State for not understanding that it was the prerogative of policymakers like Bolton – not intelligence analysts – to “interpret” intelligence data.

The neocons who sought his political extinction in 2016, the royals of the Gulf, Bibi Netanyahu, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The IRGC had warned Iranians that the Americans were duplicitous.

When Trump finished speaking, Bibi launched strikes on Iranian bases in Syria, and flew to Moscow to persuade Vladimir Putin not to give the Iranians any air defense against Israeli attacks.

But that complicating fact may no longer matter since Bolton now enjoys the enthusiastic backing of President Trump. And so those who voted for Trump and those who until five minutes ago were denouncing him as a loose cannon can at least agree that Trump is a fine fellow for appointing Bolton and also for giving us Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Even Trump hater Rich Lowry gushed with praise over Trump’s wisdom in appointing Bolton. In a National Review editorial, Lowry bestowed on the new national security advisor the endorsement of his Never Trump publication, explaining: “All his critics call him a neocon but he’s a hard-headed realist.”

Coming Attraction: Lunatic Loose in West Wing – Consortiumnews

John Bolton’s March 22 appointment-by-tweet as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser has given “March Madness” a new and ominous meaning.  There is less than a week left to batten down the hatches before Bolton makes U.S. foreign policy worse that it already is.

During a recent interview with The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill  (minutes 35 to 51) I mentioned that Bolton fits seamlessly into a group of take-no-prisoners zealots once widely known in Washington circles as “the crazies,” and now more commonly referred to as “neocons.”

How John Bolton Wants to Destroy the Constitution to Attack North Korea

April 4, 2018 by · 1 Comment 

In other words, Bolton is not arguing that North Korea is in fact about to attack us. Rather, he contends that it is legal for a country to attack another if the second country may soon possess the ability to attack the former with nuclear weapons. But this would obviously mean that it’s legitimate for Kim Jong Un to attack the nuclear-armed U.S., particularly after Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea at the United Nations in September. Indeed, by Bolton’s standard, it would also be okay for any country on earth to immediately nuke the U.S.

U.S. Establishment: Nixing Arms Control – Consortiumnews

April 2, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

John Bolton’s appointment as national security adviser to President Donald Trump is the latest blow to hopes for a less confrontational U.S.-Russia relationship that would include new talks on arms control. Mutual trust is now hanging by a very thin thread.

One wag suggested to me that the Bolton appointment should not really come as a surprise, since it fits the recent Washington pattern — if White House chaos can be considered a pattern. For Kremlin leaders, though, White House zig-zags are no laughing matter. Let’s try to put ourselves in their shoes and imagine how the unfolding of recent events may have looked to them.

COLD, CALLOUS, CALCULATING, with an aspect of vicious intent, the study of John Bolton’s face leaves one with a sense of edginess.Coupling this with his pursuit of committing more war crimes by the US in pursuance of Jewry’s interests (not America’s), the study of John Bolton’s scowl proffers an emblem of America’s enslavement to Jews.Take another look at Bolton.

Land Destroyer: US National Security Advisor John Bolton Backs Terrorists

March 31, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

Bolton’s appointment carries with it greater implications both to those apparently criticizing him as well as those attempting to promote him. Bolton has – for years – lobbied for a terrorist organization guilty of kidnapping and killing both US service members as well as US civilian contractors, along with an untold number of Iranian civilians and politicians in a campaign of terror that has stretched over several decades and continues today.

Worst of all, the terrorist organization Bolton lobbied for was literally listed on the US State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organizations list during his lobbying activities – in direct violation of US counter-terrorism laws. That organization – Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) and its political front, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) – has since been delisted as of 2012. However, the organization was delisted not because it has fully given up armed terrorism, but because the US has planned since at least as early as 2009 – according to Washington’s own policy papers – to use MEK as armed proxies against the nation of Iran.

While Trump and Mattis were celebrating big military spending increases, the president announced that John Bolton, one of the chief architects of the Iraq war debacle, would become his national security advisor. As former CIA analyst Paul Pillar has written, this is a man who, while at the State Department, demanded that intelligence analysts reach pre-determined conclusions about Iraq and WMDs. He cooked the books for war.

Let’s Call John Bolton What He Is: A War Criminal With Terrorist Ties

March 26, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

John Bolton helped lie our country into an illegal war of aggression that killed several hundred thousand Iraqis, wounded over a million, and displaced 4 million from their homes, helped deliver Baghdad into the hands of Iran, and helped create ISIL, which blew up Paris. In a just world, Bolton would be on trial at the Hague for war crimes. Instead, he has been promoted into a position to do to Iran what he did to Iraq.

The appointment of John Bolton as President Trump’s National Security Advisor – his third so far – is bad news for anti-interventionists, but hardly the catastrophe #TheResistance is making it out to be. I’ve covered Bolton’s crazed ideology of perpetual conflict in this space on several occasions – you’ll recall he was up for Secretary of State in the first months of the new administration, and he also lost out to H. R. McMaster when Mike Flynn was ousted – and so I won’t repeat myself here. Having made it on the third try, Bolton is now being characterized as the “proof” that Trump has abandoned his “America first” aversion to overseas intervention, as the otherwise sensible Jim Antle avers.

Israel Praised John Bolton’s Appointment | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

March 25, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Trump’s lunatic fringe war cabinet should terrify everyone – comprised of Defense Secretary “Mad Dog” Mattis, hawkish imperial spear-carrier Mike Pompeo at State, generalissimo White House czar John Kelly, geopolitical pyromaniac Nikki Haley as UN envoy, and now raging hawk John Bolton as national security advisor.

They comprise a hugely dangerous rogue’s gallery of hot warriors, favoring endless wars of aggression, rejecting peace and stability.

God-damn you President Trump, John Bolton is an Israel-First/Neocon warmonger and a lethal enemy of our Republic | Non-Intervention.com

March 24, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Mr. President, you are involved in two losing wars — in Afghanistan and Iraq — and Bolton will want more U.S. participation in each. Although the U.S. and Western media are not covering the wars, the truth is that the non-defeated Islamic State (IS) has moved into the southern suburbs of Damascus; IS and the Taleban are expanding their control in Afghanistan; after 17 years the U.S. military and its useless allies cannot even secure Kabul; Iraqi Shias are merrily murdering mounting numbers of Sunnis; and IS conducts ambushes and bombings in Iraq whenever and wherever it wishes. Your senior CIA, Defense, and political advisers, Mr. President, have given you nothing in Afghanistan or Iraq save opportunities to be mired in each until you have to flee as they fled from Saigon. Bolton is a loser and he will back those losers to the hilt, and so more of our kids and dollars will be wasted. Burned up in the waste of those two wars will be young American men, women, and dollars that could be used to control the border, build the wall, and rid the republic of dole-sucking illegal alien felons. And because he is more loyal to Israel than to America, Bolton will look for opportunities to cause trouble with Russia, which is always a priority of Israel First.

Trump: Conflict Between His Words And Deeds – PaulCraigRoberts.org

March 23, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

President Trump (belatedly) congratulated Russian President Putin on his smashing reelection and said, again, that he favored getting along with Russia. Yet, how can Trump mean it when he follows up by appointing John Bolton, America’s most notorious warmonger, National Security Adviser? It makes no sense.

Bolton is the third national security adviser in 14 months. To Bolton, getting along with Russia requires Russia to be a US puppet state such as the UK, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, Japan, and all the rest. In other words, accept Washington’s hegemony or we will bomb you into the stone age.

The firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his replacement by Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo, a neocon and Christian Dominionist, and the continued presence of neocon Nikki Haley in Bolton’s old job at the U.N. marks a sharp turn for a president who campaigned on general U.S. non-involvement in global affairs as the “world’s policeman.” Bolton, Pompeo, and Haley advocate a more confrontational U.S. foreign policy with nations like Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela.
