Don Rumsfeld was charged with war-crimes today. Bushco’s connection to Mid-East terrorism and pork may be the next story to blow.
Retired Air Force Gen. Joseph W. Ralston, a former NATO commander Bush appointed last year as his special envoy to work on the issue, left the job recently because of what several sources described as his frustration at the administration’s failure to devote serious attention to the problem. Ralston, vice chairman of an international consulting firm led by former defense secretary William S. Cohen, did not return several calls for comment.
There’s far more at stake…
“He never said he was leaving in protest,” another administration official said of Ralston, adding that the one-year appointment had expired. “But I guess you could speculate that if things were really going gangbusters, maybe he would have stayed on.”
Ralston was selling Lockheed fighters to the Turkish military when he was supposed to be eliminating PKK activity in northern Iraq. Ralston officially quit two weeks ago around October 11th just as the shit started to hit the fan. After some digging it became clear that Ralston actually walked off the job sometime in July this year. Why?
PKK/PJAK terrorists stepped up their attacks this summer. Turkish soldiers and Iranian soldiers were the victims, leading to the present crisis with Turkey. US security contractors‘ vehicles were sighted at the headquarters of PKK Leader Murat Karayilan just weeks ago.
We were well on top of the Bush/Ralston/PJAK connection long before the MSM. The Wapo coverage is just the tip of the ice-berg. We need to keep the pressure on. Ralston needs to go before Congress and testify under oath about what he knows about the Lockheed deal and Bush support for Middle Eastern terrorism.
