The Powell-Armitage-Wilkerson cabal

By

Draw your own conclusions from the fact that Armitage's best friend Colin Powell called Dick Cheney's supporters (including Scooter Libby, Doug Feith and Paul Wolfowitz) the "Gestapo Office" (quite insulting considering that there is a history of relatives lost in the Holocaust among them).

Factor in that Powell called Doug Feith "a card—carrying member of the Likud Party" and referred to the Likudnicks in the White House controlling policy during his "exit interview with Bush" (see Assassin's Gate: America in Iraq) — thereby showing his support for anti—Semitic conspiracy theorists.

Don't forget that Powell is also joined at the hip with Brent Scowcroft — no friend of Israel and an investor in the Saudi—funded Carlyle Group?
 
Consider that Armitage felt it was fine for Libby to undergo undeserved torment during Fitzgerald's inquisition and that Colin Powell also knew that Armitage was the leaker but kept quiet about his knowledge when interviewed by the Justice two days after Amitage admitted to Powell he was the leaker.

Remember that Powell's other good friend, and former chief of staff,  Larry Wilkerson, sees no problem with teaching his college courses at William and Mary and George Washington University using the Walt/Mearsheimer Israel Lobby Paper — and  that many have criticized as being anti—Semitic? Wilkerson believes the paper contains "blinding flashes of the obvious."

Keep in mind that the same Larry Wilkerson has a history of making anti—Israel (some bordering on anti—Semitic)  statements and believes in the neo—conservative "cabal"  and who can be quoted,

"I have some reservations about people who have never been in the face of battle, so to speak, who are making cavalier decisions about sending men and women out to die. A person who comes immediately to mind in that regard is Richard Perle, who, thank God, tendered his resignation and no longer will be even a semiofficial person in this administration. . . . I call them utopians. I don't care whether utopians are Vladimir Lenin on a sealed train to Moscow or Paul Wolfowitz. Utopians, I don't like. You're never going to bring utopia, and you're going to hurt a lot of people in the process of trying to do it.

—State Department chief of staff Larry Wilkerson, quoted by GQ, May 4
 
Well, there seems to be a cabal here alright ——an anti—Semitic one.
