Skip to comments.The Powell-Armitage-Wilkerson Cabal
Posted on 08/30/2006 1:02:09 PM PDT by the Real fifi
Draw your own conclusions from the fact that Armitages best friend Colin Powell called Dick Cheneys 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 Assassins Gate: America in Iraq) thereby showing his support for anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists.

Bump for later.
This is part of the same group that uses the term "neocon" as a code word for a Jewish cabal. Just ask Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan.
Powel reminds me of Jimmy Carter.
The real "cabal" that needs to be investigated is Scowcroft-Powell-Armitage-Wilkerson and also State dept. hacks like Marc Grossman (Joe Wilson pal, formerly in high position under Powell). The RINOs and State Dept. lovers of the Aspen Institute and the Council on Foreign Relations never could accept that they had not been elected President or Vice-President and that they did not run US foreign policy.
People on forums throw around some pretty lose terms, such as "Gestapo Office" or some such. It's rather strange to think that a professional at the level of Colin Powell would use such rhetoric. This is a charged term that reveals some of Powell's inner being, and it's not exactly flattering.
At one point Powell's name was lofted for high office. At the time I thought we knew far too little about his core beliefs. That view has been proven over time to be pretty accurate.
I have to say I have some of the same concerns regarding Condi Rice. I'll have to know a lot more about her before I could every consider voting for her.
Powell's comments do sound as if he's bought into the theory that the 'evil' Jews "run everything". That pretty much ranks him as a zero in my opinion.
I like your comments, but they don't? LOL
There's a great deal of truth in what you say. Watching the pre trial proceedings, it struck me that Fitz was utterly unaware than Grossman (who surely helped put the finger of suspicion of Libby and Rove) was a lifelong friend of Wilson and Plame.
Yeah, and I have yet to see the name Marc Grossman be mentioned in this week's articles about the role of Armitage, etc. Let's see, Armitage and Grossman worked very closely together at State but NEVER ever discussed Wilson, Plame, the jihad against the White House, etc.??? Or maybe just maybe it WAS a topic of discussion between them and none of the MSM has yet caught on to the questions they should be asking of Armitage, Grossman, the Wilsons, Colin Powell, and others? How can any supposedly competent (sic) journalist write an article about Armitage as the leaker and not look AGGRESSIVELY at Marc Grossman?
So we now know who leaked. Where's the Bid Media outrage? The silence from Liberals and Big Media for punishing the leaker is deafening.
I was told, many years ago, that Powell is a creation of Armitage, almost from the ground up. I'm not surprised to see it floating to the top.
Does anyone remember the end of the Gulf War when U.S.forces had Saddam's armor trapped near Basra. Schwarzkoff made a statement on TV about being angry that G H W Bush had stopped a little too soon. When asked about this, GHWB seemed surprised and thought that Stormin Norman had agreed to the timing.
WHO was between the General and the President?
None other than Colin Powell!
Saddam later used that same armor to suppress the uprising!
Coup-plotters...all those people you mentioned are COUP-PLOTTERS!!! Tenet, Scowcroft, Powell etal....disgusting bunch.
No wonder Alma Powell suffers from depression...she's married to the Cabalist Colin.
How do you KNOW that Marc Grossman and Joe Wilson are Friends???
It came out in the pretrial period. Grossman and Wilson went to college together (UCSB), were stationed together in the diplomatic service where Grossman met Wilson. In fact, as I recall, it was Grossman who introduced Wilson to Plame and they have all travelled together on vacations.
Straight up and to the point. Only the unemployment line is good enough for the CFR remnants and their worthless mandarins at State.
What has happened to Colin Powell??? He was a great person when he served under GHWBush....what happened between then and now?
This is disheartening to say the least....IMO he was Presidental material, but not now...this is a shame....
"Yeah, and I have yet to see the name Marc Grossman be mentioned in this week's articles about the role of Armitage, etc. Let's see, Armitage and Grossman worked very closely together at State but NEVER ever discussed Wilson, Plame, the jihad against the White House, etc.???

Because there are only two people you can count on to consistently speak against the DC cabal -- Brit and Rush. And neither are quite onto Grossman's possible role yet.
Maybe someone else can ping Mr. Snerdly -- I have forgotten his FReename. But I'll page Kristinn. That's almost as good. ;-)
Remember too that Powell and Armitage are currently Foreign Policy Advisors for John McCain's 2008 Presidential campaign.
Who is going to take America down first...the Cabal of this article...or the Islamofacsists??
I know...you would think that Chrissy Matthews would have had Armitage, Powell and Wilkerson on just GRILLING THEM...right??
Also...John Murtha has bragged about telling GWBush to pull out of Iraq...and Clinton to pull out of Somalia!!
That book you are talking about is getting longer, and longer, isn't it??
All of them look like backstabbers to me. To hell with them!
and Bill Kristol!
I don't know what may or may not have transpired between Grossman and Wilson or Grossman and Armitage over the years, but it is increasingly hard to believe that there have not been serious discussions of these matters among them. Grossman was #3 in the State Dept. under #2 Armitage and #1 Colin Powell. Some unnamed person(s), according to Joe Wilson, urged him to publish his NY Times op-ed, and I suspect strongly that was Grossman and/or Armitage. Grossman and Joe Wilson were both Class of 1972 at UC Santa Barbara and went into State Dept. careers which turned out to have some interesting overlaps in geographical proximity (leading up to Gulf War I, Grossman was #2 in the US Embassy in Turkey while Wilson was #2 in US embassy in neighboring Iraq). It may be conceivable in some alternate universe that 2 people from the same college graduating class working in the State Dept. in nearly parallel careers could be posted in Iraq and Turkey at the same time and not know each other well, but I seriously doubt it. Even if they did not have the college connection and/or never met during or after college (possible but unlikely), when they were posted in Ankara and Baghdad it seems extremely likely they would have had meetings at some point. Anyway, there's lots of suggestive stuff here:
AW...yes. I wonder how Bill Kristol LIKES being with these guys now that the truth is out??
Also, when reading the article, did you hit the link towards the end on the word "cabal"?
That goes on and lets us know more about that Michael Scheurer, the CIA agent that wrote Imperial Hubris while STILL a CIA agent....
It seems his anti-Semitism is being exposed...
Yeah and no. Yeah, it would be great if some assclown like Matthews would grill those three stooges, but I don't think that'll ever happen since all four of them are on the same side.
Chrissy is such a wussie...he hasn't even be in this week...which by my calculations would be about his 8th week of vacation already this year...LOL
He seems to be out every week there is GOOD news about anyone in the Bush Administration...
He who is rumored to have sold his soul to Soros, on the thread The Cult of Soros, and was instrumental in passing the McCain-Feingold Act, which in the end handed enormous power to Soros funded 527's such as MoveOn.org, leading to the leftist (Soros) domination of the Democrat party, and such things as its ouster of Lieberman?
I pray that come November 2008, I am not choosing between Clinton and McCain in a lonely voting booth. Talk about the rock and the hard place ... or in this case perhaps it would be molten lava versus the hot place.
It would be nice for a change if the media followed up on this, now that the leaker(s) have been pegged. You'd think they'd be going ape right about now, for being duped all this time by the DA and by the left-winged kook blogosphere.
I believe Wilson has said it was Scowcroft ywho urged him to write the NYT op ed.
LOL I've noticed that he's been gone when the liberal world comes crumbling down.
Your concern is well founded, however Dicky the toe sucker thinks she is the second coming., the only chance we have to beat Hillary.
Powel was/is an Aribist and so is Condi.
Any republican, or Democrat for that matter that runs on a get tough anti amnesty platform will win in a walk.
Of course the party elites will gives us two dumbo choices and I guess we will have to live with them until the people get a collective spine.
Jeff Greenfield was on CNN earlier and said that Republicans that are celebrating the disintegration of this Plame case against the Bush Admin..
better think again...because there was ONE paragraph in a WaPO article back in 2003 that said something to the effect that "a top White House official reported that 2 White House people called 6 journalists to tell them Plames' name"...and that this happened BEFORE Armitage told Novak???
I just checked DUmmieland...and they have glommed onto that reports and are doing the snoopy dance that THEY were right all along...!!!!!
Noting happened to Powel. he was always that way, you just didn't know it. Bad press comes from outing a prominant Black leader, as an anti Semite.
So your saying its the MSM????
I heard Rush mention that yesterday on his program, and he said it was October 2003 (exactly 6 months after we liberated Baghdad). Colin Powell was asked and his answer simply was that he couldn't go into the specifics at [this] that time.
I've always figured it was either Powell (his sudden departure came as no surprise) and Armitage (Powell's right hand man at State -- he spent more time trying to cover up his own tracks even while he was still in the White House, right in front of the Senate hearings he was asked to testify in front of.)
Okay...that makes sense.
The myths of a whole lot of "heroes" are gonna be dispelled with that failed attempt to get rid of Bush in 2004....and get us out of Iraq..
What has happened to Colin Powell??? He was a great person when he served under GHWBush....I believe this is the Rush theory. The media did NOT like Stormin' Norman. Too military, too sure of himself, to unPC. They wanted a new hero. How about a black hero, hmmmm? The media made Powell out of whole cloth and pushed him up and Schwartzkopf (sic) out of the national picture. They also touted him as running for President, VP, etc. and practically swooned when he was appointed S of State.
Not entirely, the State Department is supposed to impliment the President's Foriegn policy. I guess the President was afraid to stand up to him, and gradually forced him out, only to replace him with Powel lite.
The $64,000.00 question is what does Fitz plan to do now? His face is already bloodied, but he ain't seen nuthin' yet if he goes ahead with a sham of a prosecution of Libby after these revelations.
OMG!! The Wilson/Plames are friends of the memo writer Marc Grossman!!! I can't make that picture come clear, but SOMETHING is fishy!!! What is it??
