Will the Prince of Darkness Go Down?

Jane Hamsher, writing for the Huffington Post, details the possible take down of the arch-neocon and disgusting human specimen, Richard “Prince of Darkness” Perle. “In his day job as US Attorney in Chicago, Fitzgerald is also looking into Perle’s activities on the board of Hollinger International, one of the country’s largest media empires,” writes Hamsher. “His investigation focuses on how exactly big NeoCon chiseler Lord Conrad Black allegedly looted the company of some $540 million.” As we know, Perle was a co-conspirator in Black’s looting, and was thus was “one of the beneficiaries of Black’s largesse.” Last March, the SEC issued a Wells notice, “a formal warning that the agency’s enforcement staff has determined that evidence of wrongdoing is sufficient to bring a civil lawsuit,” Bloomberg reported at the time. “Hollinger International officials, shareholders and the SEC allege that Black and former Hollinger President David Radler wrongfully diverted proceeds from the sale of some of the chain’s newspapers for their personal use. Perle was a member of Hollinger International’s three-member executive committee, with Black and Radler, from 1996 to 2003.”

As Hamsher points out, “in his dogged climb to the top of the crap heap upon which Black himself is perched, Fitzgerald managed to flip Chicago Sun-Times publisher David Radler, who has agreed to serve 29 months and turn state’s evidence.” Of course, if Radler turns state’s evidence, this will spell big trouble for Perle. Moreover, “Hollinger’s board just censured Perle in an internal company report, and they are reportedly suing him. Fellow board member Henry Kissinger and others settled a $50 million lawsuit with Hollinger shareholders in May, which also delightfully teases that there may criminal charges waiting for that old warmonger, too. But it is Perle who really has his neck in the noose.”

For those of us who have fumed over the fact the Bushcons have run free for years, snubbing their noses at the law and arrogantly striding about, demanding wholesale invasions and bombing campaigns, thus elevating them to near-Nazi status in the war crimes hall of shame, Fitzgerald’s investigations and possible prosecutions come as partial vindication—I say partial because the neocons are still lurking about the Pentagon and White house like the vampires they are and there is scant chance they will be arrested en masse and carted off to The Hague, although a small town courthouse here in America will do (as for incarceration, a recommend a restoration of Île du Diable, or Devil’s Island, just to make sure these psychopaths never escape and endanger another life).

In the meantime, we will have to settle for Fitzgerald’s investigation. “Fitzgerald’s investigation has already inflicted a severe case of dyspepsia to the BushCo. apparatus who have definitely been off their game since Matt Cooper testified last summer, and it looks like he’s also having an effect on the international front since many of the bad guys are running for cover,” Hamsher continues. “But the good news in all of this is that Fitzgerald gets it. He sees into the ugly, greedy, oozing heart of the NeoCon kleptocracy, its mafia-like structure and the all-too-cozy overlap between the war party and the profiteers, and it pisses him off… Let’s hope Mr. Fitzgerald can put a few more NeoCons in the ‘posthumous’ category before this is all over.”

Let’s hope so. But I wouldn’t count on it. Because no doubt the neocons have a few tricks up their sleeves. As Fitzgerald closes in on the brimming cauldron of Bushcon fecal matter, possibly tipping it over for all of us to see and rousing our collective disgust, these warmongering rodents, with their Enronesque ethical standards and penchant for dirty tricks, may pull a rabbit out of their hats—and that rabbit will have “al-Qaeda” written all over it. For years now the Bushcons have told us it’s only a matter of time before “al-Qaeda” strikes with a “dirty bomb” or other such apocalyptic device (the fearsome “dirty bomb” is not an apocalyptic device, in fact it is mostly booga-booga theatrics, pure Hollywood, but anything with “nuclear” attached to it has the capacity to scare the dickens out of ill-informed Americans). No way will Cheney and the vulcans sit idly by and face the music of criminal justice without attempting to save their pathetic hindquarters and possibly killing more than a few Americans in the process.

Either way, the unfolding drama will make Watergate and the downfall of Nixon look like a grade school play by way of comparison.
