So after months of hinting that something big was in the wind, Josh Marshall & friends have broken their story. The thesis?
The DoD-Ghorbanifar meetings suggest the possibility that a rogue faction at the Pentagon was trying to work outside normal US foreign policy channels to advance a “regime change” agenda not approved by the president’s foreign policy principals or even the president himself.
I need to go dig into my library to confirm this (and it’s late Saturday night so I’m not going to do it now) but I have a recollection that Ghorbanifar did in fact have some sort of Israeli connection as well as being a player in Iran-Contra way back when. If I’m remembering correctly, then it’s quite possible that Mossad is involved in this whole DOD/intelligence passing mess and boy is that not good for the Jews.
All that said, this is not the “bombshell that’s going to rock Washington” that Marshall was promising, unless there’s more yet to come. Bummer.
