I open my commentary with a selection from an NPR Morning Edition interview regarding US plans for Syria as outline by War Secretary Mattis, pointing out the absence of any reference to the legitimacy of the US even being in Syria, pointing out that it is “authorized” under the post-911 open-ended legislation that allowed Bush and the US to attack everywhere without further Congressional approval.

I then describe details of secret memorandum of understanding between the US and Israel signed in the White House 12/12 and revealed on Israeli TV. laying out the plans for the two countries to proceed against Iran, something no other president had done before and further evidence of the subjugation of Washington to Israel's foreign policy agenda.

I then quote a handful of Israeli agents, John Bolton, Dennis Ross and JINSA's Michael Makovsky on what US response should be to Iran protests. Makovsky calls for an Oded Yinon approach, upending all the surrounding countries who have no legitimacy and need to be broken up. I note that JINSA keeps a low profile but that it has 57 former admirals, generals, and police chiefs plus Joe Lieberman and John Bolton on its advisory board, that it sends ex-generals and admirals each year to Israel plus arranges for US police department chiefs to travel to Israel and learn counter-terror practices.

Finally, I cite ex-General Wesley Clark and his 2007 report that after 911 he had been given a list of Middle East countries that the Pentagon had marked for dismemberment. Only two, Lebanon and Iran remain.
