Pentagon Mole Outing? Woodward and Bernstein or Joe McCarthy?

Here's an essay which deserves to see as much light of day as possible. It is a post by Col.(Ret.) Pat Lang on his Sic Semper Tyrannis blog which has quite a strong and loyal following, but still a blog, not a wide circulation national newspaper.

The title I've chosen for this comes from my inclination to look for hidden agendas in what whistle blowers say and write. This one is likely legit, more like Woodward and Bernstein investigative journalism than the Joe McCarthy witch hunts of the cold war. I don't sense that this author is motivated in the same way and by the same zeal as Joe McCarthy.

The right wing Likud types seem to have the propaganda upper hand in Zionist Israel these days, and it's been proved that Israel has spied on the U.S. (likely the U.S. has spied on Israel as well).

The Neocons seem to have the propaganda upper hand in the U.S., and it's no big surprise that they are cozy with the Israeli Likud and Likud supporter types, like AIPAC for example. This essay is quite thorough in it's detailing of Kass' credentials and work history, which gives it, to me at least, a level of credibility deserving of further investigation.

Personally, I don't trust the Pentagon as far as I could throw it. It is what James Carroll of the Boston Globe called a "House of War", the actual title of his 2006 tome on that institution. The subtitle is, "The Pentagon and the Disastrous Rise of American Power".

The Pentagon operates like a fourth branch of the U.S. government with window dressing oversight at best and with an obscene budget. Supposedly it's under the direction of what is euphemistically called The Defense Department. During WW II it was called The War Department. That title still accurately describes it's mission; wars of choice, somewhere, all the time.

Based on the needed outing of this Elephant in the Room, and the credentials of this Israeli bred woman who has the ear of the top leaders of our country, it seems prudent that this essay should be as widely read as possible. Don't hold your breath that it will appear in the Main Stream Media any time soon, at least not above the fold of, or even on, Page One.
