A Terrible Choice, A Grim Portent
INTRODUCTION: Donald Trump has now named former Bill Clinton CIA director and extremist neoconservative James Woolsey (pictured) as his “senior adviser on national security issues.” The oddest aspect of this is perhaps that Woolsey, who departed the CIA back in 1995, continued on with a career as one of Washington’s most outspoken promoters of US wars for Israel in the Middle East. With all Trump said regarding his opposition to war, it seems strange that he would opt for Woolsey.
While Trump referred to the Iraq War as “a disaster,” Woolsey, who is a key member of the Jewish-led neoconservative Project for a New American Century (PNAC), pushed for the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and advocated waging war throughout the Middle East.
Woolsey even signed a letter in 1998 that called for Clinton to depose Saddam Hussein, and also, preposterously and mendaciously, blamed the 9/11 attacks on Iraq. Woolsey chairs the “leadership council” of the Jewish-led “Foundation for the Defense of Democracies,” an Israel-subservient NGO. Woolsey recently went on CNN to announce that his main reason for supporting Trump came from the President-elect’s desire to expand U.S. military spending.

IN COMMON with many Trump supporters on the alt-right I’ve long harboured a horrible doubt that — just maybe — he was a huckster using his marketing genius to tap into the zeitgeist, leveraging it to close the ultimate sale. Did he really plan to get on with Russia, de-fund NATO, pull American troops out of the Middle East (i.e. stop fighting wars for Israel) and instead focus attention and resources on domestic issues? If that represented his true beliefs then he literally could not have made a worse choice for National Security Adviser.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey recognised early in his career the boundless opportunities open to an energetic shabbos goy. Shamelessly throwing in his lot with the Israeli-Jewish power structure he became rich and powerful despite (or by way of) being mired in corruption and conflict of interest at every stage.
And he repaid his benefactors in full, enthusiastically supporting the slaughter and destruction in Iraq, Libya, Lebanon and Syria. On cue he’s now agitating for war with Iran and for taking a ‘tough stance’ with Russia. He endlessly proclaims Israel to be “America’s greatest friend and ally”. His pandering on occasion has even embarrassed many American Jews, such as when he claimed that spy Jonathan Pollard was in jail only because of his Jewishness.
He’s the Neocon’s Neocon and Trump’s stated position is not compatible with his. Someone will have to concede. I’m not optimistic.
