Gird Your Loins Israel: Obama Think Tank CNAS Proposing Palestine Protection Force (Video)

Special Relationship.

Take cover fellow Zionists. CNAS (the Center for a New American Security) is perhaps one of the most influential American Think Tanks these days, it is associated directly with the Obama administration as a core policy former. High profile administration members were plucked directly from CNAS for Obama’s administration. Oh Joy.

CNAS are the good people who brought us:
Game Changing Diplomacy

Otherwise known as shelving the military option and engaging like eunuchs with Iran. In fact the entire fruitless 15 months of disastrous American policy in regards to Iran that we have all suffered from, came directly from CNAS. That’s the same fruitless failed policy Sec. Def. Gates recently warned basically amounts to no policy at all!

But Don’t You Worry.. Now they have another whopper on deck for us.

CNAS: Setting the Conditions For A Palestinian State

RED ALERT: CNAS presents Setting the Conditions For A Palestinian State & the Palestine Protection Force.

For the past year since Obama took office, CNAS has been working on a special project. A detailed plan & study for:

Implementing an International Protection Force in Palestine!!

I wonder who commissioned that one huh?
Exactly the type of protection force you might need if;

  • You were to say try & impose a peace deal on the parties.
  • Strip Israeli sovereignty and its rights of self defense.

Woohoo! How do you like them apples!? But you don’t need me to explain this, Samantha Power – One of the top tier national security advisers for President Obama already explained how such a force could protect Palestinians from Israeli Genocide previously in this classic, where she outlines the need for a Palestine Protection Force..

Holy Triple Schizer Batman!

Thankfully Rahm Emanuel, the court’s super jew has declared that now is not the time to impose a peace plan, only maybe a bit later on. So this is just a plan, kinda like Game Changing Diplomacy was also ‘just a plan’..

Let’s say it all together now.. Oy Vey.
It’s a 108 pages long, I’ll get back to you once I read it all so you won’t have to..

LINK UPDATE:
Obama now pledging that Peace cannot be imposed from outside in a letter to his prime backer Alan Solow. This whole imposition plan has really riled up the feathers on both continents it seems, hardly surprising seeing as the notion breaks every pledge to Israel America has ever made. I hope this Obama pledge is of the iron clad variety, unlike US pledges to Ariel Sharon regarding Jerusalem as well as major settlement blocks, all of which conveniently evaporated when Obama took office..

NIE Debacle: Benefits of Game Changing Diplomacy Backed by Game Changing Intel

Back in late 2007, I wasn’t alone while tripping out over what was clearly highly politicized intelligence. The American National Intelligence Estimate released on Iran at the time went against the prominent views of the US Bush administration, the NIE released just prior in 2005, and stood in contrast to the intelligence estimates of a number of key western allies; Including Israel, the UK, Germany and even France.

The NIE made the absurd claim that Iran had ceased the military dimensions of its nuclear program. Worse it did so in the cagiest of manners with buried footnotes, selective declassified wording, topped off with media briefings. It resulted in a derailing of effective US policy on the Iranian issue buying Iran plenty of precious time, a respite which continues.

Dishonest sorta means lying doesn’t it?

Alan Dershorwitz writes..

In December of 2007, I wrote an article about the National Intelligence Estimate that had just concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program back in 2003. The immediate effect of this pollyanna-ish report was to diminish the need for tough sanctions against Iran and take the military option off the table. We now know that the conclusion reached in the report was categorically false, and that those who issued the report knew it was false. [...]

It now turns out that at the time this “stupid intelligence” estimate was released, our intelligence agencies were aware that the Iranians were building a secret military facility buried deep in the mountains near the holy city of Qom. The United States recently disclosed the existence of this facility (after Iran was forced to acknowledge its existence) together with its firm conclusion that it could be used only for the development of a nuclear weapons program. If the intelligence community knew then what they know now, then its 2007 National Intelligence Estimate was not only stupid, it was dishonest.

Pretty damning, and justifiably so. Ed at Hotair commenting on a scathing WSJ Opinion piece, states matter of factly that it seems clear enough bureaucrats at US intelligence pulled off a full fledged sabotage of then President Bush’s foreign policy..

As Glenn Reynolds says, the NIE has been exposed as an effort by a handful of people at the CIA to kneecap Bush on national security. It deliberately misled Congress and the nation on the threat posed by Iran, a lie that has cost us valuable time in stopping the nuclear threat. If Iran gets the bomb, we can thank Tom Fingar and his colleagues for distracting the US long enough to allow them to do so.

Jennifer Rubin goes right to the source, raising a number of questions while commenting on remarks by CIA Director Leon Panetta to Time Magazine – She concludes..

Both the 2007 NIE report and the behavior of the Obama administration betray a concerted aversion to confronting Iran and doing what is needed to halt its nuclear ambitions.

Game Changing Diplomacy

Questions which tie in the current administration seem apt. The politicization of the intelligence had an important role supporting and nourishing the floating think tank engagement theories which were emerging. Those theories have become the hallmark of Obama’s foreign policy strategy, and called for ‘putting the military option in the drawer’. The think tanks termed it Game Changing Diplomacy, after a brief by The Center For A New American Security (CNAS) on US Iranian strategy in 2008. CNAS members then went on to staff Obama’s administration in a big way, including  the Deputy Secretary of Defense Michele Flournoy.

Today, CNAS policies are closely associated with the Obama White House, so it should come as no shock that the Game Changing Diplomacy / Grand bargain strategy has become the blue print for Obama on Iran. However, it is somewhat shocking that apparently part of the effort to usher in ‘Game changing diplomacy’, may have involved a little nudging best effectuated by ‘game changing intelligence’.

A game that seemingly has continued to this day.
