GORDON DUFF: Bush “Blood Money” Tour Cancelled
Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
Former President George “W” Bush has been forced to cancel a highly paid speaking engagement to an Israeli group in Switzerland. Bush was going to be arrested as a war criminal. He is now fighting extradition. This will not be reported in any American mainstream media.
Wikileaks, an organization many say exposes American hypocrisy while serving Israel’s global ambitions, a hypothesis well supported by even a cursory examination of the carefully chosen material “leaked” to date, has had one quite positive result worldwide. Human rights activists around the world have been vindicated and government after government is prepared to use the legal process to lash out at the remnants of America’s unilateralist policies during the Bush administration.
Bush, whose two term presidency saw a virtual takeover of most US government functions, both domestic and foreign, by Israeli interests, now faces imprisonment largely because of Wikileaks, an organization said to be directly controlled by Israeli intelligence.
Psychological warfare and disinformation are not perfect sciences. This may be the biggest “Wiki-backfire” yet.
MANY AMERICANS WHO TRAVEL UNDER THREAT
Americans abroad are seldom subject to legal scrutiny. That, however, seems to have changed. Now it seems, only Israelis will enjoy the privilege that has allowed acts like Israel’s piracy attack on the Freedom Flotilla to go unpunished. Now, however, with the chilling of relations between the US and Israel, more Americans are likely to be subjected to laws demanding accountability for their parts in governmental crimes, even though they were involved in a private capacity.
In coloring America’s government as conspiratorial and criminal, Wikileaks has shined a spotlight on the broad involvement of many sectors in America, both public and private, and their roles in torture, murder, kidnapping and war for profit. At one time or another, every court, every police agency, every military command, every newspaper or network has knowingly advocated human rights abuses and too many have openly participated.
Totally by accident, Julian Assange may have done more to restrict air travel by Americans than the TSA, or even Michael Chertoff and the bogus “crotch bomber” or the long forgotten “Times Square fizzler.”
