Coup and counter-coup in Washington

General David Petraeus, former CIA director

 

By Webster Griffin Tarpley

Sometimes, generals purge politicians. In 1648, during the English Civil War, Colonel Pride and his troops removed those members of the Long Parliament who opposed military domination; the puppets who remained were called the Rump Parliament.

This year, a cabal of generals evidently believed it could secure the White House for Mitt Romney by staging the Benghazi incident and using it as the signal for a cold coup under cover of elections — probably including computer-generated election fraud — to bring down Obama. They guessed wrong.

Politicians sometimes purge generals. When the French Secret Army Organization (OAS) staged a putsch in Algiers in April 1961 to prevent the independence of Algeria, President de Gaulle had to round up and jail a number of generals and other officers. The Obama administration and its establishment controllers appear to be ousting a number of intelligence and military officials who took part in illegal operations to replace Obama with Romney. These sackings are being presented to the public under the guise of soap opera sexual infractions or expense account padding, in the hope of hiding some real mechanisms of power from the popular gaze. The outgoing US military cabal favors the extension of colonial wars, like those in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as an attack on Iran. Good riddance.

General Petraeus: Neocon Who Sought War with Iran

The most spectacular example is the fall of General David Petraeus, the CIA director, and one of the leading US advocates of an early war with Iran. The heads of several other rogue figures are rolling. The result is one of those rare moments when parts of the rogue network or invisible government can be observed by those who have enough knowledge to understand what they are seeing. But the firings have only scratched the surface.

The Romney backers were made up of neocons, Bush holdovers, and members of the Mormon Mafia in the intelligence community — a relatively narrow base. The Obama supporters were the Brzezinski-Nye soft power group and military opposed to the Iran war. The neocons and reactionary Mormons wanted to restore aggressive war and wholesale bombing as the preferred option for US foreign policy. Although they love drones and assassinations, they want to keep significant US conventional forces in the Middle East.  Continue reading

CIA Chief Enters Lesser Occultation

1. Does it help if folks know that I hosted Elie Wiesel and his wife at our quarters last Sun night?! And that I will be the speaker at the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps in mid-Apr at the Capitol Dome…” (David Petraeus)

Frankly, I think Petraeus deserves what he got just for sucking up to the Zionist lobby by “hosting” Elie “what is my real name?” Wiesel. By the way, Wiesel’s name is pronounced “Zionist Asshole” just in case you weren’t aware.

A while back I linked to a Mondoweiss article showing some of Petraeus’s machinations. The quote at the top is from that article. It makes good reading. The source is James Morris who had been in some email contact with Petraeus.

So here’s a guy who really really wants to do all he can to be THE man. And he resigns over screwing a West Point graduate over achiever after an investigation by the FBI which concluded that there would be no charges against him or her and that national security had not been violated? So he resigns. Excuse me, but something is just not right.

The Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post (JEWNYPT), reports:

One of them said Justice Department officials were unclear on what steps to take after they concluded that there would be no charges against the CIA director or Broadwell and that there had been no breach of national security.
But then the same report states that ODNI director Clapper told Petraeus to resign which he then did and outed himself and Broadwell in the process. I find that very interesting.
