Gorilla in the Room

There is a brand-new blog called The Gorilla in the Room on the influence of radical right-wing Israelis on current American politics, and it looks like it is going to be very good. Check out the posting on the composition of the infamous Office of Special Plans, the group tasked by the neocons to go around traditional American intelligence to produce the basis - now proven to be entirely lies - to justify the attack on Iraq. In particular, read the biography of Michael Makovsky. It's unbelievable that an obvious agent for the most insane part of the Israeli settler movement had been installed by Douglas Feith as part of his team to create the lies used to force the United States into the ruinous attack on Iraq. It's important to remember that many of these same people will be working on the lying basis for the break-up of Lebanon and the coming American attacks on Syria and Iran. Will they be allowed to get away with this again?
