Brzezinski: Obama may be tested
Sat, 08 Nov 2008 17:46:12 GMT

Zbigniew Brzezinski talks about a possible attack during the Obama administration.
A former US national security adviser says President-elect Barack Obama may be tested by terrorists after he takes office on Jan. 20.

"It's possible. There's no way of predicting that. It's a possibility, but it's by no means a certainty," former Carter administration national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski said in an interview with Deutsche Welle.

Brzezinski said that history shows that every new US president is tested by transitional challenges and circumstances.

"I think that Obama has shown that he is very calm, very rational and very deliberate in his approach to issues and I think if he is tested he will respond cogently and rationally and effectively," said Brzezinski.

The last two US presidents have been tested early in office - the two attacks on the World Trade Center occurred in the first year of Democrat Bill Clinton's and Republican George W. Bush's presidencies.

Brzezinski added that changing the substance of US policies is not as easy as it sounds and Obama may be incapable of bringing a 'dramatic change' to Washington.

"You have to think of foreign policy as, for example, a boat moving on the sea. A huge ocean liner doesn't change its course in the way that a fast motor boat does. Therefore it is not possible for the United States dramatically to change every one of its policies. But I think there will be a significant shift in substance and in tone," Brzezinski concluded.


these are the kind of people

who would know. And it's not like at least 1/3 of Americans and half the wold doesn't know now, and growing, after 9/11.


That's comforting coming from the guy that created what has become known as Al Qaeda.

i feel similarly discomforted

Zbig should know.

If necessary, Obama's boat will be steered by "events".

“On the altar of God, I swear eternal hostility against all forms of tyranny over the mind of man."--Thomas Jefferson

that's why he got the Bilderberg stamp of approval

he spoke a lot of generalized slogans about "change" and "hope", but he more specifically mentioned to Wolf Blitzer recently that he may need to put his platform on hold, in order to keep bailing out his campaign contributors from the financial sector.

Watch For Russian Moves

Russia and the west are drawing lines once again. (regarding energy reserves and other resources.)

There may be differences in the approaches of the Zbig and Kissinger wings of the gangster corporatocracy, but they are still two heads of a common monster.

Notice how Zbig's statement is designed to reinforce the illusion within the public's mind of U.S. policy being guided by only their publically "elected" president.

U.S. policy is formulated by roundtable groups like the CFR and implemented by their quarterback (the executive branch and state department)

Obama mistakenly referred to 57 U.S. states during the campaign. He is not deciding the fate of the western world by himself.

russia could easily be one of the

"4 to 5 scenarios" Biden said he can think of.

What's the significance of the "57" states remark? From the look on his face and the related comments, that seems like a brain fart, that he meant to say "47" and got it confused with Heinz ketchup, as if he's Reagan and a vegetable.
