Rick Perry Abuses His Office for Israel by Philip Giraldi
This article tears into Rick Perry (gov of Texas).
It ends with:
"I have to question how a man of so little moral character as Rick Perry gets to be governor of a large state in the first place, but that is perhaps a discussion for another place and another time. If the people of Texas were seriously concerned about the Constitution and civil liberties, they would remove him from office for his attempt to criminalize the actions of a group of innocent citizens. When a government believes itself to be empowered to go after its own people on trumped-up charges, watch out. When it does so on behalf of a foreign government, all kinds of warning flags should be going up. That no one in the media or punditry seems to care is a tribute to the grip that Israel and its friends have over politics in the United States. And that is precisely why I and other contributors to Antiwar.com keep raising the issue of Israel. Its tight embrace and the policies that it forces on the sheep in Washington are central to what is wrong with us as a nation. Until we loosen that hold, we will continue to stumble and fall, and we will have the presidents that we deserve, possibly including Rick Perry."
From reader responses:
- "What Motivated the 9/11 Hijackers? See testimony most didn't!:
- "One has to read former Republican Congressman Paul Findley's 'They Dare to Speak Out' (the third edition) book as well. And 'The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy' by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt (scroll down to the link for the Dutch documentarty at: http://tinyurl.com/mearsheimer)"
