From a question
asked by a real journalist (whose name we do not know) of John Bolton (my
emphasis in red):
“REPORTER: Sir, you talked quite often about the credibility
of the UN ...
JOHN BOLTON: And so has Secretary Rice.
REPORTER: yes and Rice has as well but that seems to work
in your favor when they do what you want them to do but you violated the UN
Charter when you went to war against Iraq and you consistently lied to us
about the reasons that we went to war. And this
war was drawn up in Herzlia, Israel, in 1996, with the Project of a New American
Century; and why do you have credibility other than that you've
just got the biggest guns?
JOHN BOLTON: Can, may I ask what media outlet you're from?
REPORTER: [unclear] news weekly.
JOHN BOLTON: I see. We did not violate the UN Charter in
the war to overthrow Saddam Hussein and that plan was not drawn up in Herzlia,
the Project for a New American Century ...”
Herzlia (or Herzliya), Israel
is a city north of Tel Aviv which is of some interest:
It contains the Israeli offices of Odigo, the company with foreknowledge
that something was going to happen at the WTC on September 11
It contains the headquarters of the Mossad
It is named after Theodor Herzl
It is the site of the Interdisciplinary
Center, a think tank/university set up with a large amount of American ‘Israel
Lobby’ money, including money from Lobby-ist Marc Rich
It is the site of the annual ‘Jerusalem
Summit’, a plot-fest of various extreme
but mainstream right-wingers from around the world (note this typical
The Project for a New American Century was officially founded in Washington
Almost immediately, it tried to stir up an American attack on Iraq.
Is the reporter telling us that PNAC and the attack on Iraq were actually
planned at the 1996 Jerusalem Summit held in Herzliya? Should PNAC in really
be called the Project in Connivance of a New Israeli
Century, or PICNIC?
