YouTube video linked at Buchanan.org. I’m sure Raimondo is feeling vindicated.
Note: I’m not saying Israel did know in advance, but this would be outrageous if true.
Btw, in Buchanan’s latest article he really goes after the lobby:
A Democratic House that came to power denouncing the rush to war on Iraq is about to vote to demand that Bush commit an act of war against Iran.The front men for 362 are liberal Gary Ackerman of New York and conservative Mike Pence of Indiana. But the juice behind them is that of the Israeli lobby AIPAC, which is marching in step with Israel.
Last week, Mossadâ€™s chief, Meir Dagan, was here to make the case for war on Iran. This week, Defense Minister Ehud Barak visits Dick Cheney and maybe Bush. Next week, it is the head of Israelâ€™s armed forces.
Israel and its Fifth Column in this city seek to stampede us into war with Iran. Bush should rebuff them, and the American people should tell their congressmen: You vote for 362, we donâ€™t vote for you.
Retired Sen. Hollings’s (SC) warnings come to mind. It’s ironic that America’s empire has grown so far reaching that foreign governments now establish lobbies in America to lobby our government: we intervened ostensibly for American interests only to have foreigns exert influence over us.
