Bill Kristol, PNAC, 9/11 & The Media
Jesse, Editor - TvNewsLIES.org
September 30, 2005


To understand Bill Kristol, you have to examine his modus operandi his devious ways of plying a nefarious art. Bill Kristol is a master neocon, a heartless warmonger and an accomplished charlatan. But Bill Kristol works behind the curtain. He sets the stage and pulls the strings, while others do his dirty work. And Bill Kristol, with little fanfare or publicity, is one of the most influential architects of George W. Bushs wars.

To know the man, you have to look behind his overt persona. Bill Kristol makes no secret of his views or his philosophy. He has never hidden his affiliation with of the Project for a New American Century PNAC), of which he is a founder. And yet, when introduced to the public, he is never, ever connected to that organization. He is always presented as the editor of the Weekly Standard, as benign an introduction as can be.

Neither Kristol nor the magazine is ever tied to PNAC by the corporate media. The dots are never connected. The truth is never told, and the facts behind the story remain hidden. But just this week, a slight slit appeared in the mask. A recent feature article in Kristols Weekly Standard gave this editor food for thought. Some signs of anxiety and concern on the part of the always-smiling, always-suave Bill Kristol may just be seeping through. See if you can follow me.

1. Also, His father was a student of Leo Strauss, just like
Paul Wolfowitz. Leo Strauss is considered the founding mind behind the neocon philosophy.

4. Just a little reading on these guys will give you nightmares.
Terms like "regime change", "tyranny", " moral relativism", are all terms we hear from neo - cons, but they mean something different for them.

5. Nightmares you just reminded me of something
I once read from Leo Strauss, the neo-con's philosopher/guru argued that the "wise men" have a moral justification to lie to protect themselves and their policies. Tell me this isn't the attitude of every "Neo-Con alive".

10. This is probably why we're hearing insanity from Bennett right now...to
create a smokescreen as the crimes come out. They are getting down to a countable number of treasonists.

8. Kicked and recommended! Thanks also for the names of previous/current

12. More names and a good overview here
at this link:
http://www.eurolegal.org/neoconservatives.shtml

...Regrettably, Albert Wohlstetter and Leo Strauss had a prodigious combined effect on those who sat at their feet and many University of Chicago students are to be found in the Bush Administration Defence Department, in other posts connected with the "war on terror", or in Neoconservative think tanks:-

(1) John Aschcroft, Attorney-General, (JD 1967);

(2) Ahmed Chalabi, the founder of the Iraqi National Congress, and the Pentagon's preferred candidate for the Presidency of Iraq, (PhD 1969);

(3) William J. Bennett (JD 1975);

(4) Gary Edson, Deputy National Security Advisor to President, (JD 1982);

(5) James Ho, Justice Dept, Office of Legal Counsel, (JD 1999);

(6) Zalmay Khalilzad, National Security Council, Bush "special envoy" to the Iraqi opposition, (PhD 1979);

(7) Michael Mobbs, Department of Defence Detainee Advisory Group, (JD 1974);

(8) Gary Schmitt, President of the Project for the New American Century, (PhD in 1980);

(9) Abram Shulsky, Director of the Pentagon Office of Special Plans, (PhD 1972);

(10) Deputy Secretary of Defense, Paul Wolfowitz, who is regarded as the "chief architect" of the Bush Administration's foreign policy (PhD 1972)

13. Thanks Emit! I really get upset by all of the evil students this one man
generated. I read several of Strauss's books in Political Philosophy courses many years ago in college. I would have NEVER guess that he would be capable of producing such horrific spawn, and it remains a mystery to me til this day. (Although I must admit that I was relatively ignorant of PNAC until DU reading just prior to election 2004.)
