Ron Paul - We've Been Neo-Conned!

Ron Paul - July 10, 2003 -

. . .

"The Defense Policy Board, chaired by Richard Perle played no small role in coordinating the various projects and think tanks, all determined to take us into war against Iraq. It wasn't too long before the dream of empire was brought closer to reality by the election of 2000 with Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld playing key roles in this accomplishment. The plan to promote an “American greatness” imperialistic foreign policy was now a distinct possibility. Iraq offered a great opportunity to prove their long-held theories. This opportunity was a consequence of the 9-11 disaster."

It was with this article by Ron Paul that I knew he knew.

Couple of related points

Dean Acheson was Truman's Secretary of State and also a very powerful advisor to Kennedy and Johnson. Acheson passed along his sophisticated knowledge of Washington and his expertise on American policy specifically to Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle as one of his final actions, in 1969. (see James Mann, Rise of the Vulcans, p31)

One of the signers of the Operation Northwoods plan, Admiral George W. Anderson, was also the chairman of President Ford's FIAB in 1975, which pushed the idea of "Team B" on Ford. A letter to Ford from Anderson and company, which was the impetus for Team B, gave the neocons the foot in the door that allowed them to go on to government leadership positions in the Reagan, Bush I and Bush II administrations. Anderson's letter is a link between someone who is known to have planned government-sponsored terrorism, and the neocons.

2001 Defense Policy Board

Here's a good article on the subject.

"Of the 30 members of the Defense Policy Board, the government-appointed group that advises the Pentagon, at least nine have ties to companies that have won more than $76 billion in defense contracts in 2001 and 2002. Four members are registered lobbyists, one of whom represents two of the three largest defense contractors."

"The board was set up in 1985 to provide the Secretary of Defense “with independent, informed advice and opinion concerning major matters of defense policy.” The members are selected by and report to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy—currently Douglas Feith, a former Reagan administration official. All members are approved by the Secretary of Defense. The board’s quarterly meetings—normally held over a two-day period—are classified, and each session’s proceedings are summarized for the Defense Secretary. "

A lot of folks find out about 9/11 via Ron Paul supporters

I run into many folks who have found out about 9/11 from Ron Paul supporters and Campaign for Liberty groups (and vice versa).

Orangutan, thanks for the brief on the Maine fraud.

The system stacks the cards against honest men.
