Mousavi Was "Butcher of Beirut" & Did CIA Place an Agent as President of French Republic?

Paul Craig Roberts argues that "Ignorance is Strength" and wonders "if anyone anywhere in the US media or US government knows that Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who served as prime minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran from 1981 to 1989, the decade following the overthrow of the American puppet government by Khomeini, has been fingered as the Butcher of Beirut, responsible for the bloody attacks on the US embassy and Marine Corps barracks in Beirut during the Reagan administration that blew to pieces 241 US Marines, Sailors, and Army troops.?"

Bob Baer, a CIA Middle East field officer at the time, says that Mousavi “dealt directly with Imad Mughniyah,” the person responsible for both attacks.

All of these facts have gone into the Memory Hole. The US media and government have turned Musavi, the bloody butcher of US servicemen, into the would-be liberator of Iran from theocracy.

Only in America and in George Orwell’s fictional population in his predictive book, 1984 can we find such citizen ignorance.

Every day in America, a.k.a. Oceania, we see the growing power of Big Brother’s three slogans: WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

From ignorance comes the strength to create a hero out of America’s terrorist enemy, Mousavi.

From freedom comes the protection provided by being constantly spied upon, no longer endangered by privacy which might keep Big Brother from discovering a terrorist plot. This freedom from terrorists morphs into the slavery of being held in indefinite detention without evidence or charges. Habeas corpus has become the opposite of freedom as it prevents our protection from terrorists.

According to this missive from, they are all a bunch of big-swinging dicks.


And that's why we're in such big trouble. You think election reform will change this? Ha! (Emphasis marks added - Ed.)
One should judge Nicolas Sarkozy according to his actions, and not according to his personality. Yet when his doings surprise even his own constituents, it is legitimate to take a detailed look at his biography and question the bonds that brought him to power. Thierry Meyssan has decided to write the truth about the French Republic’s president background. All the information included in this article is provable, except for two assertions signalled by the author who alone takes full responsibility. Tired of the overextended presidencies of François Mitterrand and Jacques Chirac, the French elected Nicolas Sarkozy counting on his energy to revitalize their country. They were hoping for a break with years of no-change and ideologies of the past. What they got instead was a break with the very principles which founded the French nation, and have been shocked by this "hyper-president,” seizing every day a new dossier, attracting towards him the right and the left wing, and tearing apart all points of reference to the point of creating a total confusion. Like children who have just made a boo-boo, the French are too busy trying to find excuses for themselves to admit the magnitude of the damages and of their naiveté, and they refuse all the more to see who Nicolas Sarkozy really is, that they realize they should have known since a long time who he was. One must say the man has talents. Like a magician he tricked them. By offering them the spectacle of his private life and posing in People’s magazines, he got them to forget his political history. The aim of this article must be clearly understood. It is not to reproach to M. Sarkozy his family, his friends or his professional ties, but the fact of having hidden those ties from the French who believed, wrongly, they were electing a free man. To understand how a man whom all agree today to view as an agent of the United States and of Israel was able to become the head of the Gaullist party and the president of the French Republic, we must go back in time, very very far back. We must make a long digression in the course of which we will present the protagonists who are today taking their revenge.
The Family Secrets At the end of Second World War, the United States secret services relied on Italo-US godfather, Lucky Luciano, to control the security of American ports and prepare their disembarking in Sicily. The main contacts of Luciano — held at that time at a New York luxury prison — to the US intelligence services went notably through Frank Wisner, Sr. Later, when the “godfather” was liberated and chose to exile in Italy, they operated through his Corsican "Ambassador,” Étienne Léandri.

Yeah, the people seeing Mousavi as somehow better for US interests are fuggin' idiots. He's an Islamist true believer -- the Guardian Council would not have let him run otherwise. The deal in Iran is an internal struggle between two factions of Islamists, not some sorta puppy dogs and everything nice fairy tale of good vs. bad, and the Iranians protesting for Mousavi have absolutely no problem chanting "Death to the Great Satan!" in their own mosques. Only reason to support the protesters is that supporting folks who want fair elections is always a good deal because eventually fair elections DO end up with a nice guy as President... but Mousavi? Uhm, no worse than A-dude, but that ain't sayin' much.

Exactly, BT. And thanks for the comment!

The sad fact of our time is that our rulers have an inside bet on the ignorance of the citizenry and that it can be told any lie boldly and often enough that it drowns out the few voices of truth in the country - but not in the media unless an internet connection is involved.

He's an Islamist true believer -- the Guardian Council would not have let him run otherwise.

And the plan to invade Iran to save it from the undemocratic democratically-elected ruler is in play - as usual.
