Obama adviser blames Iraq war on the Jews

Ed. Morrissey:

The interview of Tony McPeak in the Oregonian has turned into a bigger headache for Barack Obama than first thought. Obama’s chief military adviser told the newspaper in a 2003 interview that the US should keep troops in Iraq for “a century … if we do [the war] right,” echoing exactly the same sentiments that Obama has ridiculed as “a hundred years of war” when John McCain made them. Now Obama has to explain why the former Air Force Chief of Staff blames the Jews for the Iraq war:

In an interview with The Oregonion about five years ago, McPeak argued that the influence exerted by American Jews is responsible for the lack of progress in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. According to the general the problem was New York and Miami.

“We have a large vote here in favor of Israel. And no politician wants to run against it,” he said.In the same interview, McPeak spoke of his personal experience with Israel.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in Israel, worked at one time very closely with the Israeli Air Force as a junior officer,” he said, “but that’s maybe the more cosmopolitan, liberal version of the Israeli population.”

McPeak also charged that Jews and Christian Zionists manipulated American foreign policy in Iraq. “Let’s say that one of your abiding concerns is the security of Israel as opposed to a purely American self-interest, then it would make sense to build a dozen or so bases in Iraq,” he said.

McPeak’s formulation uses a little more subtlety than most of the Jewish-cabal conspiracy theorists, but the thrust is the same. Jews and “Christian Zionists” operate from a concern for the interests of Israel over America. It’s not that protecting the region’s only democracy and our strongest ally somehow doesn’t fall within our own interests, but that this group of Americans act against our national interests to manipulate American policy at the expense of our country.

...

McPeak is becoming Obama's foreign policy problem like Wright has been his race problem. Is a conversation on Israel speech to follow?

  1. The war in Iraq was not for oil or democracy. It was to destabilize the country so Israel can dominate the region. McPeak is correct, the Jews dominate our foreign policy. While our infrastructure crumbles and inflation further weakens the dollar, our tax dollars are given to the Israelis, in fact they receive more foreign aid than any other country.
    And who is calling for a preemptive nuclear strike on Iran? Its not the Catholics or Atheists, its the Israelis, American Jewish groups such as AIPAC, ADl, JINSA, and their useful idiots, the Christian Zionists. You were an officer in the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam, have you ever heard of the U.S.S. Liberty false flag attack?

  2. The war in Iraq was caused by Saddam's failure to comply with his cease fire agreement with the US and failure to comply with 17 UN resolutions. The US had concerns that he would cooperate with al Qaeda in future attacks on the US and those concerns were legitimate even if few operational ties were uncovered. He was waiting until the heat was off to reconstitute his WMD programs and he had a record of supporting Zawahiri in past terrorist activity.

    I am aware of the Liberty attack, but unlike the Israel haters, I don't harbor ancient grievances against them. The Israelis have a right to live in peace in their homeland and the religious and ethnic bigots in the Palestinian community are the primary reason why there has been no "peace" agreement. At this point the Palestinians have nothing of value to offer the Israelis.
