Former CIA and DIA officer Philip Giraldi discusses the cloak-and-dagger media spectacle of a former CIA agent claiming to have knowledge of secret Iranian weapons, the possibility of an Israeli air strike on Iran this summer, how Israel sabotages US relations with Mideast rival countries, why it has become politically impossible for the US to rein in Israel and how the cost of maintaining US empire is the constant threat of blowback.

MP3 here. (51:48)

Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer, is a contributing editor to The American Conservative and a fellow at the American Conservative Defense Alliance. He writes regularly for Antiwar.com.

  1. Who was responsible for Lockerbie?

    See "Taking Another Look at the Destruction of Pan Am 103" by Andrew Killgore, former U.S. ambassador to Qatar and publisher of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.

  2. And who "found" the Pakistan Taliban confession videos?

    "Almost every statement by Osama bin Laden published on the Internet, to name only one example, is first made public by SITE and IntelCenter."

    Are SITE Intelligence and IntelCenter reliable, objective sources?

    "And Katz, Venzke and Devon will continue to see the humor in such theories: Yep, this is Mossad Headquarters. Exactly!"

  4. About Lockerbie. The two Libyans put on trial for it are almost certainly innocent.

    Never mind what Gaddafi admitted to. In 2003 he helped Bush by "admitting" he had a WMD programme, but was now abandoning it over fear of suffering Iraq's fate, which was cleary absurd.

    Where this was originally posted (Sanders Research) they later turned subscription only, so the links are from funky reposts.

  5. Don't ya think that U.S. policy is deliberate in provoking terrorism? MIC needs an enemy, post-cold war, so must keep terrorism on the front pages.

  6. Yes.

  8. As for Philip saying that Israel does not need nuclear weapons… They do. And Martin Van Creveld, an Israeli military historian and professor can tell us why. Just look at the last paragraph at: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2003/sep/21/israe

  11. Read Giraldi’s current column “A Timetable For War.” Also, read Ray McGovern’s current column “Loose Lips on Iran Can Sink America.” (Giraldi’s recent columns on Dr. Lani Kass, the Israeli mole (?) serving as a top adviser to the Air Force Chief of Staff, are interesting to say the least.)

    I hope Giraldi’s wrong about an Israeli attack on Iran. Israel looks at the U.S. the way a dog looks at a lamppost–as something to piss on. Given that, NuttyYahoo and his boys wouldn’t be averse to attacking Iran–and letting the U.S. take it from there.

    We should deny Iraqi airspace to Israel. If Tel Aviv defies us, knock their planes out of the sky.
