Grant F. Smith


Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C., discusses Steve Rosen’s $20 million defamation lawsuit against AIPAC, a reminder that the whole Larry Franklin/Rosen/AIPAC cloak and dagger operation was to determine (and front-run) the Bush administration’s internal deliberations on Iran policy, how Rosen’s frenzied rush to warn Israel’s embassy about his FBI encounter shows where AIPAC’s loyalties are and why all the pretrial mudslinging is probably a fight for leverage in an eventual out-of-court settlement that will leave AIPAC unscathed – apart from its declining financial fortunes.

  1. Piss on AIPAC, the slimy, perfidious Israel lobby/fifth column in this country. I'd like nothing better than to ship the asses of Rosen, Franklin, and the rest of 'em straight to Tel Aviv. It's where their loyalties truly lie.

    Listening to Smith is always educational.

  2. A very large number of our congressmen just wrote a letter to the president suggesting that the USA release the traitor J. Pollard. The congressmen did this because AIPAC asked them to do it. What is amazing is the same congressmen just ignored the fact that millions of USA unemployed will be losing unemployment benefits because they failed to take an action on the matter. They were busy being prostitutes to AIPAC. Some of those unemployed lost their job because Israel too the information that J. Pollard provided and either directly used the information to help Israel companies or sold it to the Russians and Chinese making the item no longed needed. One has to wonder just why people facing economic destruction would elected people of such low character. The truth is the cheap TV attack ads work. People listen to the liars on the TV and it gets the scum elected.

  3. Frankly almost every congressperson or senator could, or should be classed as an Israeli agent. And if they were actually ever forced to choose between America and Israel I very much doubt that too many of them would choose America over Israel. They are that brainwashed.

    1. Did you notice that when Israel committed terrorists acts in the Mediterranean sea against the Turks, 87 (I mean 87%) senators sent a letter to the WH asking the president to support Israel?
      I have no problem supporting a foreign country, but supporting a terrorist state is beyond what I can stand for! We're fighting gang terrorists and we should NOT side with state terrorists.
