Part II in a series based on an interview with a former, highly-placed U.S. intelligence official who breaks his silence on the increasing probability of abandonment of Israel by the U.S. and other Western countries based on what he termed “malicious intelligence.” (Click here for Part I).
10 March 2009: The Middle East will be the site of “the coming war,” and Israel will be at it’s epicenter. If we survive as a nation, the U.S. will not be on the side of righteousness in this war, instead turning our back to - or our guns against - our only true friend in the Middle East: Israel.
“Remember the phrase malicious intelligence?” asked the source during our latest interview. Well, Charles Freeman, appointed by Barack Hussein Obama to chair the National Intelligence Council can be presented as “exhibit 1.” Freeman, a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf war and an obvious the benefactor of Saudi money in his position as head of the Middle East Policy Council, has shifted his public position on the “reasons” behind the attack of 9/11 and Israel as a U.S. ally as quickly as former UN weapons inspector Scott RITTER shifted his public position on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
RITTER is referenced here not to digress from the primary topic, but is an integral part of the topic. He also illustrates how someone is apparently able to mentally reconcile and public embrace two starkly opposing viewpoints in a matter of a few short years without being medically diagnosed as a schizophrenic. In a most generic sense, many of the same factors involved in the about face done by Scott RITTER can be used as a template overlay for Charles Freeman, sans RITTER’s “alleged” search for contraband of a different type at a Burger King restaurant in Colonie, a suburb of Albany, NY. In a more specific sense, however, some of the “usual suspects” begin to emerge in both cases. While RITTER has been relegated to “shill status” for those “usual suspects” intent on implementing a “New World Order,” FREEMAN is being moved in as a key player.
RITTER, of course, was a United Nations weapons inspector from 1991 to 1998 and was an outspoken critic of Saddam Hussein. That was, of course, until Shakir al-Khafaji, a close contact of Saddam Hussein and an Iraqi-American businessman from Detroit reportedly provided RITTER with $400,000 to produce a documentary titled In Shifting Sands that was extremely critical of the U.S. led U.N. inspections. It should be noted that in 2004, Shakir al-Khafaji pled guilty to multiple felony charges for his role in the U.N. Oil-for-Food scandal and that RITTER, of course, staunchly denies being the benefactor of Iraqi money. In fact, when RITTER was questioned about how he would respond to accusations of a “quid pro Quo relationship” with Shakir al-Khafaji (about monetary allocations in his name), he was quoted by Dr. Laurie Mylroie, writing in the Financial Times, stating: “I’d say that person’s a f***ing liar…and tell him to come over here so I can kick his a**.” [Expletives deleted].
I experienced some of that same venom when I had the opportunity to question RITTER about his “epiphany” about Iraq when he appeared as a guest on the Pat Campbell Show a few years back. During that exchange, RITTER denied receiving any Iraqi money from al-Khafaji, but was less than concise when he attempted to explain the underwriting process of that pro-Saddam, anti-U.S. propaganda.
Now consider the Charles FREEMAN’s about-face regarding Israel as a friend and valuable ally of the United States, his more recent comments about the reasons behind the 9/11 attacks, and perhaps more importantly, his relationship with Saudi Arabia (including Citibank shareholder Prince Al-Waleed) through the prism of the RITTER affair. While both experienced their own individual epiphanies that share the same anti-Israeli roots, the difference here is that FREEMAN is about to assume a position of leadership with the National Intelligence Council, whose stated goal is to provide U.S. policymakers with unbiased information on issues of national security and global threats. He is on the inside, while RITTER, perhaps still searching for a method of “having it his way,” is presently out of the inner circle.
Both, however, appear to share the common public position that Israel and the U.S. pro-Israel lobby is to blame for everything from the impetus for the 9/11 attacks to our war against Islamic terrorists. Both share vicious criticism of Israel. Both seem to be at ease with Iran’s nuclear ambitions. In the case of Charles FREEMAN, however, such sentiments extend beyond propaganda and can influence – or become U.S. policy.
An article published today in the Wall Street Journal titled Obama’s National Intelligence Crackpot (What does the Jewish lobby have to do with China’s dissidents) does well to expose FREEMAN for who he is and the role he will play in our relationship with Israel and our war against Islamic terrorism. And if you want to follow the money and the globalist agenda, note that FREEMAN sits on the board of a major oil company owned by the Chinese government that is in the midst of a multibillion dollar deal with Iran, as reported by World Net Daily. So now we have the presumptive leader of the National Intelligence Council having ties to Iran via China, in addition to his financial ties to Saudi Arabia, the largest exporter of Wahabbism in the world - and the bankroll behind the Islamists inside the U.S.
How can any rational or sane person accept such a preposterous appointment? Well, it seems that many such appointments have been made that defy rationality, unless one can recognize that a larger agenda is at play here.
Intelligence for national security purposes must not be subjugated by politics or financial interests, otherwise it becomes malicious at the hands with those having agendas. If one chooses to argue that Iraq was the victim of big oil interests, than that same argument must extend to our relationship with Israel and opposing Arab countries. In other words, money talks – and it talks loudly, frequently drowning out the truth with political propaganda propagated by a media already influenced by Arab financial interests. And with money comes power and influence.
“Now you can see where intelligence and politics meet and often collide,” a reference made during my initial interview with this former U.S. intelligence official. Now this intelligence official explained that the Obama administration is being purposely filled with people who are truly anti-Israel, either because of their own financial interests or a larger globalist agenda that does not include Israel, or for that matter, the United States as a sovereign nation.
“Whatever the reason, the anti-Israel, pro-Islamist policy makers will be appointed or have already infiltrated nearly all levels of the U.S. government. These are the people who place anti-Semitic references in school textbooks, promote revisionist history regarding Islam, 9/11, and are the same people who allow or even promote the Islamic agendas in all aspects of Western society, especially the restrictions on speech against Islam. With regard to the latter, note that the United Nations is quite involved in forcing the restriction of “hate speech” and the implementation of global standards, some that have already been adapted by European nations.”
“Closer to home, there is an organized, concerted effort on the part of these individuals to foster an atmosphere of anti-Semitism throughout the West, and in particular within the United States. This is an important aspect of their global objectives, and includes blaming the Jews for our current financial crisis. The majority of Americans might not care about or even understand the situation with the Palestinians, Israel or the Middle East, but they certainly care about their own finances, especially when they see their retirement funds evaporating before their eyes. Now, they become afraid, anxious and angry.”
“Associate Israel or Jewish interests with global instability, Americans will become upset with the Jews and Israel. Blame them for being responsible for or contributing to the loss of their retirement and their economic problems, they will become angry. The objective is to erode support for the Jews and Israel in America, and is being done with the assistance of a media influenced and infiltrated by anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian, Arab and Muslim apologists. At the same time that the anti-Semitic undercurrent is perpetuated in America, world pressure against Israel will mount. Expect to see an increase in hostile acts against Jews in the U.S., Jewish synagogues and other Jewish assets,” stated this source.
Meanwhile, in order for the globalist agenda to succeed, the United States cannot remain a close ally of Israel. That relationship is being undermined from within, and the information being publicly disseminated is being manipulated from within - by a compromised and all-too-willing media.” According to this source, the groundwork to get to this point has been in the works for years, if not decades. “It was just placed on the fast track under Obama, who has promised his allegiance to the Arabs. If not already, this will become quite evident to even the most skeptical, much to the consternation of the majority of American Jews who voted for him.”
As for the coming war, it has already begun as a war for the minds, hearts and souls of the people in the West, and will manifest itself quickly to a physical war between Israel and her Arab neighbors. It will likely begin as it has in the past, with a missile or rocket fired by HAMAS, followed by a measured response from Israel. Then a good dose of propaganda from the media, who will portray the Jews as murderers of innocent men, women and children. Then outrage and condemnation from the international community, led by the United Nations, who will demand peace at the expense of Israel. This time, the U.N. will have the cooperation of the United States under the Obama administration.
We will send troops as part of a larger ‘peacekeeping mission,’ but they will most certainly not be there to help the Israelis. But first, America must be convinced that being an ally of Israel is not in our best interests, and they are the antagonists in this scenario. By electing who we have, and by the appointments already made and policies already implemented, they’re off to a pretty good start, don’t you think?”
Numerous people have questioned how a junior senator from Illinois - a virtual unknown - could rise from virtual obscurity to the leader of the free world in seven years. Many of the same people have asked how that same person could rise to power despite still-unanswered questionsof his eligibility, and a past checkered by questionable associates and associations.
The answers lie in the globalist agenda, one that has no place for Israel, beyond Israel being the catalyst for the implementation of a new world order.

RETRACTION: 1 March 2010:
On March 10, 2009, Douglas Hagmann, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, erroneously reported that Michigan resident and businessman Shakir al-Khafaji “pled guilty to multiple felony charges for his role in the U.N. Oil-for-Food scandal…” That statement is absolutely incorrect as pointed out by his attorney in a letter to this agency dated February 10, 2010 demanding a retraction. Mr. al-Khafaji was was neither charged nor convicted of any crime with respect to his activities with the Oil for Food program. His attorney, Sheldon S. Toll, has also advised us that Mr. al-Khafaji has, inf fact, “received two commendations from the United States Government for his undercover work in counter-terrorism.”
We nonetheless stand by the reports that Shakir al-Khafaji was identified as one of three Americans by Iraqi newspapers and in the Independent Report on the Manipulation of the Oil-for-Food Program dated 27 October 2005 as a participant with Saddam Hussein in the UN’s “Oil for Food” scandal. It has been reported that Shakir al-Khafaji conducted an estimated $50- $70 million in business with Saddam Hussein through his trading company based outside of the U.S. Mr. al-Khafaji is specifically identified in the Report on Program Manipulation; Chapter 2; Oil Transactions & Illicit Payments although was never charged with any criminal wrongdoing as erroneously reported.
We regret the error of our initial statement and any confusion relative to our initial retraction. We apologize for this error and therefore fully retract the erroneous statement as requested by the most recent legal correspondence we received.
