An inside peek at AIPAC

Why Steve Rosen is Suing AIPAC
The Samson Gambit

by Grant F. Smith / April 8th, 2009

On March 2 former American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) foreign policy chief Steve Rosen filed a civil lawsuit in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Rosen accuses his former employer, directors, and outside public relations firm of libel and slander. Rosen seeks damages of $5 million from AIPAC and punitive damages of $500,000 each from former board members and the public relations firm Rational PR, L.C. An analysis of Rosen’s civil complaint reveals how his “Samson’s gambit” of threatening to pull down the walls of justice over the heads of the Israel lobby may prevail in getting criminal espionage charges dropped within the next two months.

AIPAC has been pushing very hard for a House Resolution to enforce an embargo against Iran. The toughest part of the embargo is the blocking of refined oil into Iran, this report by Real News.com featuring Gareth Porter will get you up to speed if this is news to you;

Stop AIPAC.org has a page dedicated to stopping House Resolution 362 (and the Senate version Res. 580), is calling for a protest in San Francisco on July 8, and is encouraging everyone to contact their representatives;

Ex Weapons Inspector: Iran Not Pursuing Nukes, But U.S. Will Attack Before '09

By Jason Leopold

Also published at my website, The Public Record.

In 2002, Scott Ritter, the former Chief United Nations Weapons Inspector In Iraq, publicly accused the Bush administration of lying to Congress and the public about assertions that Iraq was hiding a chemical and biological weapons arsenal.

By speaking out publicly, Ritter emerged as one of the most prominent whistleblowers since Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times in the early 1970s.

Ritter’s criticisms about the Bush administration’s flawed prewar Iraq intelligence have been borne out by numerous investigations and reports, including one recently published by the Senate Armed Services Committee that found President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and other senior administration officials knowingly lied about the threat Iraq posed to the United States.
