Richard Perle

Perle Mossad Spy/Agent of Influence

Perle is a Israeli Spy or Agent of Influence. This first came to light in 1970 when Perle was caught on a federal wiretap disclosing classified information with a contact at the Israeli embassy. Since then Perle has shown a pattern of actions and associations commiserate with those of those of a foreign agent.

Richard Perle was the protege of Dorothy “Dickie” Fosdick who was foreign policy advisor and chief aide to the late Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson. Fosdick was a hereticaly liberal Christian who was also a foreign policy hard-liner. She mentored Perle and helped make him the man he is today. I know of no evidence that Fosdick was also a Traitor.

Under President Ronald Reagan Richard Perle was Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy. While at the Pentagon Perle brought in Pro-Likudnik radicals Frank Gaffney and Doug Feith.

Richard Perle has been a fundraiser speaker for a front group for the ultra-violent Mossad backed terrorist group MEK or Mujeheddin-e-Khalq. This odd association appears to be a result of the MKO Mossad alliance after Iraq feel and Sadam Hussein was no longer able to protect the MKO.

The Prince of Darkness

“How could you write about Dick Perle and neglect to mention the reason he’s called the Prince of Darkness? In the 1980s, this character demanded a US nuclear strike on the USSR, which would have started the Big One and killed everybody. Only the Evil One himself hates humanity more than Richard Perle does.” In These Times | Richard Perle: It Pays To Be the Prince of Darkness

Conyers Releases Perle IG Report; Calls for Legislation to Fix Conflict of Interest Loopholes

Rep. John Conyers, Jr. issued the following statement in connection with the report issued by the Department of Defense’s Inspector General regarding allegations of conflict of interest and misuse of public office involving Richard Perle (the report was requested by Mr. Conyers on March 24, 2003):

“The IG’s report confirmed what I have suspected for some time – that Mr. Perle has benefitted financially by working for firms with major business before the very agencies he was entrusted to advise. In one case, Perle was even willing to tout his government position and ties as part of his consulting business. While the IG concluded this course of behavior did not technically violate the law, it is clear too that his conduct constitutes a breach of faith with the American people. As a result, I intend to introduce legislation that would eliminate the legal loopholes identified in the report.”

The IG’s report included the following findings:

– Perle appears to have represented Global Crossing and Loral in matters pending before the Defense Department, but escaped violations of the conflict of interest laws by virtue of the fact that he was only considered to be in the employ less than the required 60 day period. (IG Report, Pg. 3) Conyers noted, “To me it is absurd that a position as powerful as Chairman of the Defense Policy Board is treated as a small time adviser, when, in the present Administration the position has taken on a decisive advisory role.”

– Perle signed an affidavit claiming that his position as Chairman of the Defense Policy Board gave him a “unique perspective on and intimate knowledge of national defense and security issues.” (IG Report, Pg. 3) Conyers stated, “the fact that the offending language was subsequently removed from the affidavit, of course, doesn’t change the reality of the assertion, or the awkwardness of the conflict.”

Perle met with Saudi Arabian businessmen at a luncheon in Marseilles, France, in January 3, 2003.” (IG Report, Pg. 3) Conyers noted, “the fact that the IG could not identify a specific quid pro quo by the Chairman for obtaining investments in Perle’s defense venture capital firm, does not eliminate the appearance of impropriety that comes with confirmation of such a meeting.

– “Perle contacted State Department officials on behalf of his client Loral” and “participated in a telephone conference call with investors as a paid consultant of Goldman Sachs.” (IG Report, Pg. 3-4) Conyers reiterated, “it is repugnant to me that an individual trusted with advising our government on matters of war would go on to benefit financially from those very ties.”

Conyers concluded: “My legislation will include several provisions to respond to the abuses highlighted in the report. Among other things, the law needs to include a hard and fast rule preventing high ranking officials such as the Chairman of the DPB from profiting from their positions, and we also need to increase disclosure of these business ties to the public. There is no reason the public cannot scrutinize these relationships for conflict of interests on their own. To bring these conflicts to light, I will consider language that requires advisory committee members to make conflict of interest and ethics disclosures to Congress. The last thing we need is profiteering by our own trusted advisors at a time of war.”

`Heads should roll’ over Iraq
Adviser wants U.S. intelligence chiefs to quit

Cites faulty conclusions on Saddam’s weapons

ERIC ROSENBERG
SPECIAL TO THE STAR

WASHINGTON—Richard Perle, a chief proponent of last year’s U.S. invasion of Iraq, yesterday called for the chiefs of the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Defence Intelligence Agency to step down because of their faulty conclusions that Saddam Hussein possessed mass-killing weapons.

Perle, a close adviser to U.S. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, said top officials made no attempt to skew the intelligence about Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction. Instead, he implied, top policymakers relied in good faith on the conclusions of the intelligence agencies.

“George Tenet has been at the CIA long enough to assume responsibility for its performance,” Perle told reporters, referring to the director of the agency. “There’s a record of failure and it should be addressed in some serious way.”

“The CIA has an almost perfect record of getting it wrong in relation to the (Persian) Gulf going back to the Shah of Iran,” Perle said. He called for “a shakeup” in the U.S. intelligence establishment.

“I think, of course, heads should roll,” he said. “When you discover that you have an organization that doesn’t get it right time after time, you change the organization, including the people.

“I’d start with the head head,” Perle said when asked which heads should roll at the CIA. Perle said the DIA ” is in at least as bad shape as CIA (and) needs new management.”

Navy Vice-Adm. Lowell Jacoby has headed the agency since July, 2002.

U.S. President George W. Bush, Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Colin Powell have said they relied on intelligence from the CIA and DIA in their assertions that Saddam had stockpiles of mass-casualty weapons. The claim was the main rationale for the U.S-led invasion.

David Kay, former head of the U.S. weapons-hunting team in Iraq, has concluded it was highly unlikely that Saddam possessed stockpiles of such weapons.

“It turns out we were all wrong, probably, in my judgment, and that is most disturbing,” Kay said last month.

While Kay dismissed the prospect that stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction would ever be found in Iraq,Perle disputed him on two relatively minor claims: that Iraq wasn’t seeking to enrich uranium or develop mobile weapons laboratories to manufacture chemical or biological weapons.

“The jury is still out” on those points, Perle said.

Perle, the former chairman of — and current member of — the Defence Policy Board, a senior level advisory panel to Rumsfeld, was an advocate for overthrowing Saddam, asserting in the months leading up to the war that the Iraqi dictator’s weapons stockpiles posed a grave threat to the United States.

In the lead-up to the war, Perle regularly warned about Saddam’s reputed arsenal and the danger that would follow if the United Nations failed to get the Iraqi dictator to disarm.

Tenet was first appointed by president Bill Clinton and confirmed by the Senate in 1997 and then moved over to the Bush administration after the 2000 election. His agency has been criticized for the Iraqi weapons episode and for failing to detect the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist strikes.
