Libby part II: an Israeli MOSSAD agent; the Libby-Mark Rich-Guliani ties; Fitzgerald's defense

Time for republicans to sit up and pay attention and follow the documentation here. This is not mere allegation or conjecture. The republicans must purge the self-labeled neoconservatives from their ranks and philosophical policies if they expect to be respected by patriotic Americans and West Virginians.
The Libby prosecution and sentence commute is a key illustrative point in this most important issue.

The neo-republicans (neo-conservative controlled republicans) have defended the Bush decision to commute Libby's sentence (and justify further pardon) by simply stating that Clinton pardoned the infamous Mark Rich.
The fallacy in this argument is two-fold: (1) it plays the party card and says therefore that Bush's virtual pardon is just as bad as Clinton's (i.e. therefore justified?), and (2) it fails to look deeper and just who both Mark Rich and 'Scooter' Libby are. When will this partisan game stop! NEITHER WAS JUSTIFIED, BOTH WERE CORRUPT, BUT DONE TO DEFEND THE ISRAELI OPERATIVES HEAVILY INVOLVED IN COVERT ACTIVITIES ON BEHALF OF ISRAEL WITHIN U.S. GOVERNMENT. (The same can be said of Larry Franklin as well, also spying for Israel and removing classified documents to cover a trail). After reading this article you will see why Rudy Guliani was "compelled" (i.e. due to his own historical involvement) to vehemently protest Libby's sentence, in order to stay on a particular group's good side. (Historical compromises haunt present politicians). PARTISANSHIP BLINDS PEOPLE TO THE CORRUPTION WITHIN BOTH PARTIES, AND PROTECTS A SECRET CABAL.

Why should this revelation be surprising? The neocons are largely comprised of Israeli-Zionist infiltrators who have hijacked, thru Cheney, and others well placed outside with Pentagon ties through "consulting" contracts (e.g. Booz Hamilton's James Woolsey, Rabbi Dov Zakheim--follow the money trail to Israel here), both the Executive Branch and the Pentagon. (The "Zionist" elements in the Pentagon are openly discussed by former Colin Powell aid Larry Wilkerson, whom he calls "a cabal" here). This is why Libby was virtually pardoned, and their is no pretended conflict between Libby and Rove et al--the neocons control the Executive Branch! AFTER READING THIS DOCUMENTED ARTICLE ASK YOURSELF WHETHER THE NEOCONS REPRESENT A FOREIGN POWER WITH U.S. GOVERNMENT OR NOT.

Another important article, The Libby Affair and the Internal War, that ought to be read by republicans in particular is one by James Petras, (author of The Power of Israel in the United States, bottom of blog), who states this, and puts the Libby issue in perspective:
Libby's rise to power was part and parcel of the ascendancy of the neo-conservatives to the summits of US policy making. Libby was a student, protégé, and collaborator with Paul Wolfowitz for over 25 years. Libby, along with Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, Douglas Feith, Kagan, Cohen, Rubin, Pollack, Chertoff, Fleisher, Kristol, Marc Grossman, Shumsky and a host of other political operators, were long-term believers and aggressive proponents of a virulently militaristic tendency of Zionism linked with the rightwing Likud Party of Israel.
It is time for Americans to wake up and see that a foreign power has hijacked (via 9/11 as a "catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harbor"--PNAC document) and virtually controls the present U.S. government!
Libby a long-time Israeli intelligence agent

Wayne Madsen Report
Jul 3, 2007

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby has been a long-serving intelligence agent for Israel's Mossad, according to a veteran CIA "official cover" officer who spoke to WMR on deep background. The CIA's Clandestine Service has, over the years, gathered a tremendous amount of intelligence on Libby's activities on behalf of Mossad.

Libby served as the lawyer for Switzerland-based American fugitive financier Marc Rich, aka Mark David Reich, who is also known to be an Israeli intelligence asset and someone Israel relies upon for missions that demand "plausible deniability" on the part of the Mossad.
Rich heads up a worldwide empire of dummy corporations, foundations, and numbered bank accounts that have been involved in sanctions busting and weapons smuggling. The nations involved include Israel, United States, United Kingdom, Iran, Panama, Colombia, Russia, Iraq (under Saddam Hussein), Cuba, Spain, Nigeria, Singapore, Bolivia, Jamaica, Bermuda, France, Italy, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Australia, Argentina, Peru, Ireland, Zambia, Sweden, Monaco, and apartheid South Africa.

In 1983, the then-U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York urged jail time for Rich and his partner Pincus Green for racketeering. The name of that U.S. Attorney is Rudolph Giuliani. Giuliani, who is now running for president, praised Bush's decision to commute Libby's jail sentence. After Clinton's pardon of Rich, Giuliani said he was "shocked." Paul Klebnikov, the Moscow editor for Forbes' Russian edition, wrote about the connections of Rich to Russian gangsters like Boris Berezovsky, a business partner of Neil Bush, in his book "Godfather of the Kremlin." Klebnikov was shot to death gangland-style on a Moscow street on July 9, 2004.

Libby not only provided the Mossad with a top agent inside the White House but also an important conduit for the Russian-Israeli Mafia.

Libby arranged for Rich's eleventh hour pardon by outgoing President Bill Clinton in January 2001. The pardon of Rich was urged in a phone call to Clinton by then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, as well as Shimon Peres and Ehud Olmert.

Yesterday, Libby received a commutation of his 30-month prison sentence from President George W. Bush. Libby was convicted on four counts of perjury, lying to a federal law enforcement officer, and obstruction of justice in the investigation by U.S. Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald of the White House's leak to the media of the identity CIA non-official cover officer Valerie Plame Wilson.

Libby was denied bail by U.S. Judge Reggie Walton and was ordered to prison while appealing his sentence. Libby was assigned Bureau of Prisons inmate number 28301-016.

Libby worked for Paul Wolfowitz in the State Department's Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs from 1982 to 1985. Libby again worked for Wolfowitz in the Pentagon as the Principal Undersecretary for Strategy and Resources. Libby later became the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy and served as a chief aide to Defense Secretary Dick Cheney.

It was while Libby was working for Wolfowitz at State, the FBI arrested Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, who had delivered enough highly-classified U.S. documents they could have entirely filled a garage. It was well known that Pollard had a "control officer" within the Reagan administration. The control officer was code-named "Mega."

Current British Lord Chancellor and former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said that during Middle East peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, "It's a toss-up whether [Libby] is working for the Israelis or the Americans on any given day." Clinton's Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder told the House Government Affairs Committee in 2001 that he discovered much more about Rich after Clinton's pardon and said, "Knowing everything that I know now, I would not have recommended to the president that he grant the pardon."

It has also been reported that, in addition to pressure from leading neocons in the United States to keep Libby out of jail, Bush was urged by leading Israeli government officials to prevent Libby from going to prison.

Fitzgerald issued the following statement regarding Bush's commutation of Libby's prison sentence:

"We fully recognize that the Constitution provides that commutation decisions are a matter of presidential prerogative and we do not comment on the exercise of that prerogative.

We comment only on the statement in which the President termed the sentence imposed by the judge as 'excessive.' The sentence in this case was imposed pursuant to the laws governing sentencings which occur every day throughout this country. In this case, an experienced federal judge considered extensive argument from the parties and then imposed a sentence consistent with the applicable laws. It is fundamental to the rule of law that all citizens stand before the bar of justice as equals. That principle guided the judge during both the trial and the sentencing.

Although the President's decision eliminates Mr. Libby's sentence of imprisonment, Mr. Libby remains convicted by a jury of serious felonies, and we will continue to seek to preserve those convictions through the appeals process
