Like Cheney, Bolton wants to promote skewed intel to have influence. That means avoiding or at least downplaying analysis that comes from biased sources. I know the foibles of US intel but special interest disinformation is not intel, it is psyops. thedailybeast.com/trump-administ…
Think tanks funded by special interest groups, anti terror "intel" agencies (many of them Israeli) and private networks like Erik Prince constantly try to skew policy against Iran to the benefit of Sunni dictatorships. Money skews logic and America ends up making bad decisions.
These influences are why we didn't catch bin Laden at least in 8 scrubbed missions times before 9/11, why we created Jihadi groups in the tribal areas, why we invaded Afghanistan instead of Pakistan and why Iraq was such a needless mess which led to ISIS.
We are doing it again. Ignoring intel, pushing other nation's agendas and threatening to put our men and women at risk under false pretenses. There is no accountability for Trump, Bolton, Pompeo, Kushner, Prince or lobbyists etc who are driving us towards yet another #ForeverWar
For example using demo via divers to place shape charges at the water line near non destructive points on ships is strictly for photographic and news purposes not for demolition purposes. apnews.com/d5884f62de8c4f…
Iran using limpet mines or shape charges in UAE controlled harbor space for psyops purposes would be, well, dumb. But this administration is sloppy. The professionals would create a massive fireball with great loss of life and strike quickly.
So a hired team of western demo experts (I have been told a Danish national) placed charges on the hulls of friendly ships and UAE/KSA flagged ships and now Americans are reviewing the evidence to prove the pre agreed narrative to be correct. Wait for the kicker....
When I was in Misrata in 2016 I was told that Erik Prince had a plan to place demo charges to prevent Fayeez Siraj from landing in Tripoli. He requested a letter of introduction. I have a copy of that letter and the name of the person who repped Erik Prince. Prince chickened out
Prince's rep was a former Blackwater employee and Iranian in background. So whenever you hear these stories that sound too simple and well timed to be true, remember there is an entire world of #fuckery behind those efforts. All working hard to make fake stories sound true
