Secret War Being Waged Between Obama, Neo-Cons
By Victor Thorn
When President Obama reluctantly agreed to begin sending 30,000 more troops into Afghanistan late last year, did he do it under pressure from the neo-conservatives and the military-industrial complex? In a recent article, filmmaker John Hankey points to a secret war going on inside the Beltway that pits old-guard neo-conservative internationalists against the na´ve administration that is currently occupying the White House. It’s a life or death battle, says Hankey, with the American people caught in the middle.
In a Feb. 3 interview, this writer told Hankey that the situation is reminiscent of George Orwell’s “perpetual war” combined with Mad magazine’s “Spy vs. Spy.”
In Orwell’s book 1984, a tyrannical government used the notion of perpetual war to keep a lock on power and hold its citizens in check. Contrast that with the famous “Spy vs. Spy” black-and-white cartoon in Mad magazine, where two ruthless spies attempt to carry out missions but are constantly foiled by each other.
Hankey cited the false-flag Fort Hood massacre and how former vice president Dick Cheney is incensed that Obama isn’t using the incident to escalate our war against Islam. This same “pro-war, pro-death” neo-con Israel-first faction also manufactured the Christmas Day underwear bombing.
“Their goal was not only to make Obama look weak, but to send a message,” Hankey explains. “Deliver our agenda or you’ll have another huge terrorist attack to deal with.”
Since a legacy has already been established that Obama is soft on terror, one more major “al Qaeda” event would effectively signal the end of his presidency. This process began when Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, appeared on “60 Minutes” and called out Obama.
“The general flexed his muscles and showed Obama’s weakness,” stressed Hankey. “In essence, he asked, ‘Are you going to take on the entire military and defy us?’ The military-industrial complex is completely stacked in favor of those who are pro-Cheney. McChrystal’s intent was clear. ‘Can you take us on? No, you can’t.’”
As a result, Obama is caving on Gitmo, pulling out of Iraq, holding open 9-11 trials in New York City and increasing troop levels in Afghanistan. Hankey proceeded to compare Obama’s situation to that of John F. Kennedy, and how a “programmed” patsy killer at Fort Hood and two party-crashers were overt warnings from the “old murder network” who engineered the 1963 slaying in Dallas.
During Kennedy’s time, the CIA and Pentagon ran a huge war machine and drug trafficking network in Vietnam. Today, the U.S. military budget surpasses that of every other country combined, while Afghanistan produces 90 percent of the world’s heroin. In addition, the United States is doing Israel’s dirty work by fighting its enemy with Iran certainly in their sights.
As it stands now, Cheney’s Zionist cabal is winning the public relations battle, making Obama and his befuddled cohorts look like na´ve babes in the woods. As such, Hankey asserts that “a military coup, of sorts, has taken place.”
On Feb. 3, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) asked CIA Director Leon Panetta, National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair and FBI Director Robert Mueller about the likelihood of another U.S. terror attack within the next three to six months. They all agreed in their answers: “Certain.”
There aren’t any good guys in this scenario. Instead, what we’re seeing is a power grab. Which faction will control billions of dollars in black-budget profits, and which faction will set the agenda for a half-trillion dollar defense budget?
More importantly, who will reap the benefits: Obama’s cabal or the Cheney-Zionist cabal?
Right now, the Obama crowd knows that their “Spy vs. Spy” counterparts have effectively orchestrated three strikes: the June 1 shooting outside a military recruiting center in Little Rock, Ark., Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan’s Fort Hood bloodbath and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s escapade on Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit.
On the other hand, Attorney General Eric Holder is fully aware that a cabal within the CIA, Pentagon, and Mossad would be devastated if 9-11 trials were held in a NewYork City civilian court. To prevent such an occurrence, serious threats have been leveled by the actual 9-11 plotters.
So, in the meantime, Obama’s people are scurrying to bolster their own intelligence network not to fight “Muslim extremists,” but those who, as Hankey writes, are “wresting by force of power from the hands of the president” the control mechanisms to maintain their hold on the vast profits from our drug and war machines.
