Philip Giraldi, contributing editor at The American Conservative magazine and columnist for Antiwar.com, discusses the collusion of Congress, AIPAC and the media in agitating for war with Iran, how the media’s repetition of a single false premise shapes public opinion toward war, a proposal for an “X Street” lobby that advocates for U.S. national interests and why the CIA and the National Endowment for Democracy need curtailing.

MP3 here. (27:23)

Philip Giraldi is a former CIA and DIA counter-terrorism officer, member of the American Conservative Defense Alliance and contributing editor at The American Conservative magazine. His “Smoke and Mirrors” column is a regular feature on Antiwar.com.

  1. Giraldi is something else. He's an ex-CIA man who believes that the CIA and the National Endowment for Democracy must be reined in. And, of course, his sane, balanced look at America's corrupt foreign policy is refreshing.

    True to form, the Fawning Corporate Media, the Israel Lobby, and the latter's hacks in the Parliament of Whores are yelling for an attack on Iran.
    Senator Joe LIEberman (Zionist-Israel)–er, (Independent-CT)–is a swine.

  2. A while ago it was reported on Antiwar.com that according to the view of one profesor of History from Chicago that the result of an Israeli/United Bluff attack on Iran would bring us back to 1932 economically.

  3. 100 Nuclear Weapons Explosions are enough for Nuclear Winter. But as the Pentagon is still ursuing a disarming and unanswerable first-strike capability they obviously don´t believe in the Nuclear Winter (NW, Uni of Colorado). Are they mad – or what´s going on ?

  4. Let's not forget about the other government/media lie. Ahmedinejad Never threatenente towipe Israel off the map. He said something more along the lines of the Zionist regime will vanish from the pages of time as the soviet, the Shs regime etc. regime So in the context it was said he (if he were theatening to wipe anyone off the map that would include Iran. He was taken out of context, misinterpreted,and it has been drilled in to the American peoples head for all these years by the government and the media. Do so serious research. Even Mike Wallaces interview was edited and used to further this propaganda and he got an award. Disgusting!

  5. From which one cannot come back because there isn't enough oil. Finally I will be able to use my Mad Max costume!

  6. I hope it doesn't come to war with Iran. I fear millions will die, probably 95% of them Iranians but tens of thousands of Americans and Israelis too. I have a strong hunch that Israel is dying to try out its' nukes. This nation has come to openly embrace war and all the cruelty it brings with it. Honesty no longer gets very far in our society. Obama found that out and got himself elected, but he is a 'changed' man. The Media sets up the framework within which people can think. 'Think outside the box' is a cliche for those who brag about their position within the box. The box, in our time, is war.
