Zelikow Appointed to Obama's Intelligence Advisory Board

Zelikow Appointed to Obama's Intelligence Advisory Board

September 7, 2011 — President Obama appointed Philip Zelikow, associate dean for graduate academic programs in the University of Virginia's Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, to serve on the President's Intelligence Advisory Board, the White House announced Tuesday.

Zelikow, White Burkett Miller Professor of History, will remain with the University while serving on the board, which serves as an independent source of advice to the president on the intelligence community's effectiveness in meeting the nation's intelligence needs, and on the vigor and insight with which the community plans for the future.

"Philip is a valued colleague, exceptional scholar and highly skilled administrator with a distinguished record of service in government and academia," said Meredith Jung-En Woo, dean of the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences. "This appointment reflects his and the University's longstanding commitment to education and public service. We're pleased that he will be able to serve the president and our country in this important role while continuing to oversee the College's graduate academic programs as well as our international initiatives and partnerships. His experience on the president's advisory board will only deepen and enrich his work on behalf of the College."

Zelikow will serve with 13 others, including former U.S. Senators David Boren and Chuck Hagel, who co-chair the board.

"I'm glad to do what I can to help," he said.

Zelikow began his career as a trial and appellate lawyer in Texas, and is a former career diplomat whose posts overseas and in Washington include service on the National Security Council staff of President George H.W. Bush.

His books include "Germany Unified and Europe Transformed" (written with former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice), "The Kennedy Tapes" (with Ernest May), and "Essence of Decision" (with Graham Allison).

In recent years, Zelikow has taken two public service leaves from academia to return full time to government service: in 2003-04 to direct the 9/11 Commission, and in 2005-07 as counselor of the Department of State, a deputy to Rice. He also advises the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's program in global development and is a consultant to the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Zelikow joined the College faculty in 1998 and also served as director of the Miller Center for seven years.

Spread this story around...

I'm appalled at this. The odds are so far stacked against us it isn't even funny. Hard to know how we can win when they have this much power over our government and media and elections. Good find. Expose Obama with this stuff.

Who is Philip Zelikow?

Take heart, Orang

No one should be surprised by this. We knew what Obama was even before he announced his intention to "look forward, not back." They are circling the wagons. Insiders are being brought close.

This outrageous appointment--like the ramped-up US corporate media assault on "9/11" skeptics--should be understood as defensive reflex and posture. You have their attention. They consider you a serious threat. You are hurting them. Make no mistake: you are up against sociopathic professionals. In the years I have been a guerilla "information warrior" I have seen the full spectrum of disinformation and intimidation techniques deployed against "9/11" activists--en masse and individually. Personal psychological attacks have gone unreported within the movement to hinder the "example" effect of social amplification. Ask any of the most effective "9/11" researchers or bloggers.

You cannot "win" their House-rigged game anyway. Their media will never report your progress, because they know the real war is for the Public Mind, which has been almost entirely informed by their media. But thanks to you and many other activists, their influence is no longer absolute. Think of the half-million views of the WTC7 mini-doc. Think of the word-of-mouth.

"9/11" was a televised "shock and awe" psychological operation. Its target audience was global, It was possible to infantilize many millions at once with that trauma, imprint the "public myth" and maintain it with triggering images and references. Without a countervailing mass media "event" to deprogram those millions your campaign to "free their minds" has necessarily at times seemed Sisyphean. But the essential mission of the "truth movement" has been to maintain the flame of humane free thought. And it is no exaggeration to say that millions have been touched by that light. And among those millions are many who will not hesitate to take up the torch should its bearer falter.

True. Thanks!

Good perspective.
James Corbett's video 9/11: A Conspiracy Theory has OVER HALF A MILLION views now too!
Keep spreading the news!

"Circling the wagons" is right

Who better to bring in to shore up the disintegrating official story than its primary author?

The 9/11 Truth movement has layed the groundwork for a critical mass to start getting it. I got a heartening call on Monday the 12th from a colleague who has been dismissive of the whole idea of an inside job. He said "You know, I was watching all the specials on TV yesterday, and they showed videos of the Twin Towers coming down. Why had I never seen these before? It dawned on me that these towers were literally exploding, not collapsing. It's suddenly very suspicious and I'm carefully reconsidering what you've been saying."

One mind at a time we can unravel Zelikow's fiction. What a repugnant and ultimatey futile task he and Sunstein and the rest of them have before them.

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth."--Buddha

The White House deserves to be besieged with objections

Zelikow prepared an outline the Kean commission report before the hearings began. He also consulted with Rove during the hearings. If someone has the internet skills, they could facilitate thousands objecting to this to Obama.

Failure of Imagination : Our Man Zelikow

Here's Phil at the CFR on Sept 12 2011

Here's Phil melting at the end of "Raiders of the Lost Ark"

That's "quite"

an imagination you have there. :)

Nice find.

It is frightening sometimes, to see them doing what they do,as if they're laughing at us, knowing that they got all the basis covered, knowing that "we" can't do nothing they cannot handle if I can put it that way .
I think that we all need to take a good long look at how exactly we are going to make sure that these "sociopathic characters" are going to "leave the stage". What will it take? How big will the sacrifices have to be? Anybody willing to give his or her, career, family or even life, when push comes to shove?
These people won't go away silently, or without a fight, we know that already. But looking further ahead in time, what's the plan for us?

Getting a new investigation, and then what? Getting some key players incarcerated? Then what?

If we don't have a real plan to turn all this around, how're we going to make sure that it actually does turn around? Maybe it's off-topic but does anybody have any thoughts on this? What's the plan? How are we going to tackle all the back-up plans that these sociopthic professionals no doubt have lay in place, ready to be activated when they deem necessary?

Notice also among the nominations

is Zbig's son Mark Francis Brzezinski as ambassador to Sweden.

Zelikow needs to be put in jail

for ignoring Tony Schaeffer & able danger.

We need to target him & put him in jail.

Zelikow should be tried in a

Zelikow should be tried in a federal court for derailing and rigging a federal investigation into the mass murder of 3000 and $billions in property destruction. If found guilty, a life prison sentence without parole is appropriate.

"change we can deceive in"

The Very Best Organized Criminals

Those who occupy the highest positions within the federal government and major corporate boards are by most appearances organized criminals who collectively abuse their positions for the sake of greater control over resources, information and people. These persons of interest can regularly be seen passing back and forth through revolving doors between high public office and corporate America.

And like the Mafia, these same persons of interest are often relatives of one another.

Attitude

Well put, but those who occupy the highest positions consider it their right to lie, kill and deceive. They have no respect for the public. It's key to understanding how 9/11 came about because the average person cannot comprehend this. A man who left high level government service and is now retired told me they think of us as ants that can be crushed with a footstep.

OK, so this is our adversary

So it's pretty clear who we're dealing with here. Now how will this relatively small group of individuals be removed by the people? They're bad for mankind as a whole, bad for our planet, bad for everything alive. They should be removed.

Does anybody have any vision on how this can be achieved by us (preferably in a nonviolent manner)? Thusfar I have never ever seen or heard anybody bring up this subject. What are our options, how do we counter their backupplans, what's our best shot at making this happen?

Are there websites or places, thinktanks etc. where stuff like this is discussed and thought about? I know it's offtopic, but still.

This video is not pleasant to watch, but I think it speaks for itself:

In the houses of shadow, everybody lies.

zelikow and Sunstein's 'Obama propaganda ministry'[OPM] will be dealing with recent ripples in pool out of Florida, which, if opened by 'new investigation' [sen.Graham], would HAVE to deal with continued suppression of explosive information presented in Daniel HOPSICKERs extraordinary work "Welcome to Terrorland", where DEKKER and ATTA and JEB appear in all their dark conspiracy, racing the back roads of deviant FLORIDA, cocained up in red TransAm and far from narrative martyrdom presented by the equally deviant phillipZ, sat up there behind LEE and DEAN.
Mister Graham is not going to tell me he doesn't know a whole lot more about undertows of interactive deep state Florida than he is telling.

Apart from that, I imagine phillip[the minder] KNOWS his whole disgusting 911psychofantasia is stretching skin of credulity mighty thin over the sharpening bones of those sacrificed where ever it is presented by the intellectual revolutionaries of North american engineering architectural chemical/physics/aviation sciences - and just sheer heroic independent investigative activism taking ON the LIARS of this false flag attack. Does CASS outsource technique to counter growing awareness of CLEAR 911 science; the unequivical conclusion of the Harrit/Jones WTC DUST paper - the exposure of ridiculous anti-science [agnotology] of NCSTAR "probable' fire induced animations; these deep sea swells of information exposing evidence removal, conflicts of interest unreported, ownership of property, financial foreknowledge and just general scope of foreknowledge THROUGHOUT intelligence/military/beltway,
For any among us not familiar with the work of George ORWELL, the seminal work previous to 1984 and Animal Farm was an autobiography of his experience in the fascist war 1936 SPAIN "Homage to Catalonia" where he clearly saw and reported news propaganda in early action.
Would certainly recommend anyone reading it if they have time, to add to the pot of knowing what we are experiencing RIGHT NOW in global media control.
