Philip Giraldi

Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi, now Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest, says the refugee crisis was “made in America” by the neocons. It was the completely predictable consequence of the regime change operations designed to destroy Iraq, Libya and Syria…three key enemies of Israel.

Giraldi writes:

“On May 3rd a letter by a Dunn Loring Virginia woman named Valerie Murphy was printed by the Post. Murphy complained that the Iraqi child victim photo should not have been run in the paper because it would ‘stir up opposition to the war and feed anti-US sentiment.’ I suppose the newspaper thought it was being impartial in printing the woman’s letter, though I couldn’t help but remember that the neocon-dominated Post had generally been unwilling to cover anything antiwar, even ignoring a gathering of 300,000 protesters in Washington in 2005.

“Rereading the woman’s complaint and also a comment on a website suggesting that the photo of the dead little boy had been staged, I thought to myself, ‘What kind of monsters have we become.’ And in truth we had become monsters. Bipartisan monsters wrapped in the American flag. Bill Clinton’s Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once said that killing 500,000 Iraqi children through sanctions was ‘worth it.’ She is now a respected elder statesman close to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
