Chas Freeman's Paranoid Statement (Israel Lobby and Joooows Were out to Get Him)
LittleGreenFootballs ^ | 3/11/2009 | Charles Johnson

If you need any more evidence why Chas Freeman was not fit to hold the office of Director of the National Intelligence Council, have a look at his paranoid, antisemitic statement about his withdrawal: Exiting, Chas Freeman Attacks ‘Israel Lobby’.

"Freeman says, “The libels on me and their easily traceable email trails show conclusively that there is a powerful lobby determined to prevent any view other than its own from being aired, still less to factor in American understanding of trends and events in the Middle East. The tactics of the Israel Lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods, and an utter disregard for the truth. The aim of this Lobby is control of the policy process through the exercise of a veto over the appointment of people who dispute the wisdom of its views, the substitution of political correctness for analysis, and the exclusion of any and all options for decision by Americans and our government other than those that it favors.”

Wow. This is the man Barack Obama picked for a sensitive job related to foreign policy.

Damn, what a loss we all are suffering by this withdrawal by Achmed Freeman. I’m certain he would be a great intellectual help to Leaky and Rockie in the Senate as they are almost as smart as my poodle, and all of them really know how to keep a secret!!!

Since Jews voted OVERWHELMINGLY for Obama. I almost wish that Freeman had made it thru, just to teach them a lesson.

Two problems with that.

First, he works for the Saudis/Chicoms, it's America he'll be damaging, not American Jews or Israel no matter how appealing that might be.

Politically, his diplomatic career began and was nourished under Reagan and Bush I. He'll be portrayed as an anti-Israel Republican, bounced by Clinton, a democrat. Worst thing Obama did was reach across the aisle.

I may be off-base here, but I detect just a hint of sarcasm in your post.

In any normal time O’Leary would be in Levenworth instead of running some phony African Aid Council.

He's our Director of National Intelligence, confirmed by the Senate. He's a retired Admiral who has had some ethical issues in the past. As to his choice of Freeman

March 9, 2009 The Honorable Dennis Blair
Director of National Intelligence
Office of the Director of National Intelligence
Washington, DC 20511

Dear Director Blair:

During your nomination process, you indicated your understanding of the importance of clear and accurate intelligence analysis. You explained your understanding of the reasons behind the Iraq WMD intelligence failure and assured Members that one of your goals was to prevent such analytic failures in the future.

You also told the Committee that if nominated your "objective will be to ensure that the analysis produced by the Intelligence Community is objective and free of any political bias, whatever the issue or political climate might be" and said that "President Obama has made it clear ... that he expects independent analysis."

In light of your comments, we were surprised by your decision to appoint Charles Freeman as the next Chairman of the National Intelligence Council (NIC).

The NIC is responsible for providing policymakers with "the best, unvarnished, and unbiased information." Its Chairman leads this effort, is the Intelligence Community's most senior analyst, and is at the forefront of reforming analysis so that mistakes like the Iraq WMD failure are not repeated. Mr. Freeman has a distinguished resume, but his intelligence experience appears to be only as a consumer of intelligence-in other words, using intelligence for policymaking. We are unaware of another instance in which someone without years of intelligence analysis experience has been appointed to this position.

Also concerning-in light of the need for any NIC Chairman to have unquestioned objectivity and an ability to convey the Intelligence Community's judgments in a measured and non-provocative manner-are Mr. Freeman's highly controversial statements about China and Israel. While Mr. Freeman has since made efforts to clarify his remarks, one of the lessons of the 2007 Iran National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) is that an essential quality in leading the NIC is an ability to ensure that NIEs and other NIC products clearly and accurately convey the views of the Intelligence Community when they are published. Once a product is released it is too late to try to clarify the Intelligence Community's judgments.

At a time when the analytic community is continuing to struggle with reforming itself and when U.S. leaders, from the President to Members of Congress, have called for a depoliticization of intelligence, we believe this appointment sends the wrong message. The NIC, as the highest intelligence entity providing top level analysis, must represent the clearest level of analytic expertise, an expertise the rest of the government and the public must be assured is free from policy bias. Given our concerns about Mr. Freeman's lack of experience and uncertainty about his objectivity, we intend to devote even more oversight scrutiny to the activities of the NIC under his leadership.

Sincerely,

Tom Coburn
Christopher S. Bond
Saxby Chambliss
Richard Burr
Orrin G. Hatch
James E. Risch
Olympia J. Snowe

Rats, and I thought I had really hidden my sarcasm good!! You win, but in this guy’s case, I think we all won when the pompous jerk decided not to go for it. Net Zero has always picked losers, starting with his mates,( marriage & V.P.), and we can only wonder what the clown comes up with next.

The Hidden Hand: Middle East Fears of Conspiracy by Daniel Pipes

Funny story about Daniel Pipes. His father was the famous Sovietologist who shaped Pres Reagan’s policy that defeated the USSR. In the early 1970’s Daniel decided to get a doctorate in Islamic History. He said his father questioned his choice. What will you do with that degree.

He told that story at a lecture I went to.
