KSFR radio show Camp Lovewave will host CIA veterans Bill and Kathy Christison in another discussion of their views on the 9/11 attacks and the situation on the ground in Israel/Palestine on Saturday, December 15th at 10AM Mountain Time. Bill Christison, a 25 year veteran of the CIA has made clear his position that 9/11 could have been an inside job in a piece for Dissident Voice (www.dissidentvoice.org) entitled “Stop Belittling the Theories of September 11th.” Christison, who served as Director of the CIA’s Office of Regional and Political Analysis, joins a large contingent of military, political and intelligence professionals who have questioned the official story of 9/11 at the website www.patriotsquestion911.com .
After discussing the problems with the official story regarding the collapse of the World Trade Center Buildings 1,2 and 7, and the anomalies at the Pentagon, Christison concludes that these particular datapoints “strongly suggest that some unnamed persons or groups either inside or with ties to the government were actively creating a “Pearl Harbor” event, most likely to gain public support for the aggressive foreign policies that followed — policies that would, first, “transform” the entire Middle East, and second, expand U.S. global domination.”
Bill’s wife, Kathy Christison, has published extensively on the situation in Palestine, and her books at www.christison-santefe.com are recognized scholarly works on the subject. The two of them release articles regularly on counterpunch.org and the most recent one chronicles their recent trip to Palestine. Their 45 minute slide show is available for theaters and community groups by contacting them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The two of them pull no punches in their recent article entitled: “Genocide or Erasure of Palestinians,” and lay it on the line based on their eyewitness testimony:
“In fact, it matters little what you call it, so long as it is recognized that what Israel intends and is working toward is the erasure of the Palestinian people from the Palestine landscape. Israel most likely does not care about how systematic its efforts at erasure are, or how rapidly they proceed, and in these ways it differs from the Nazis. There are no gas chambers; there is no overriding urgency. Gas chambers are not needed. A round of rockets on a residential housing complex in the middle of the night here, a few million cluster bomblets or phosphorous weapons there can, given time, easily meet the UN definition above [of genocide.]
Children shot to death sitting in school classrooms here, families murdered while tilling their land there; agricultural land stripped and burned here, farmers cut off from their land there; little girls riddled with bullets here, infants beheaded by shell fire there; a little massacre here, a little starvation there; expulsion here, denial of entry and families torn apart there; dispossession is the name of the game. With no functioning economy, dwindling food supplies, medical supply shortages, no way to move from one area to another, no access to a capital city, no easy access to education or medical care, no civil service salaries, the people will die, the nation will die without a single gas chamber. Or so the Israelis hope.”
The role of the Israel lobby in American politics is becoming more and more controversial as former President Jimmy Carter recently released a book entitled “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid.” The issue will not go away until there is justice in the region. It’s time to get serious about countering the militant Zionist lobby in America and worldwide, and the Council for the National Interest has just released a full page advertisement in the New York Times on the subject of the wall and the fact that it has cut off the road between Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
