Antiwar Radio: Grant F. Smith

Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C., discusses newly declassified documents from the US Senate’s 1963 investigation of foreign agents following the Israeli false flag “Lavon Affair,” how enforcement of FARA prompted the American Zionist Council to reorganize as a non-registered lobby (now called AIPAC), the hundreds of quashed FBI and DOJ investigations into the Israel lobby’s routine lawbreaking, how the biggest scandals involving large numbers of government officials become politically impossible to prosecute, how Israel’s real existential threat is the lack of an existential threat and why Israel chooses militaristic isolation instead of participating in open market prosperity in the Mideast.
