05/20/11 – Philip Giraldi – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 20, 2011 | Interviews

Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi discusses Obama’s underwhelming speech on Middle East policy, hyped by the NY Times because it broached the subject of Israel’s 1967 borders; how Obama’s speechwriters really earned their money this time, twisting language and logic to please multiple constituencies; Israel’s enduring and perplexing ability to influence US foreign policy; why war in Pakistan is too crazy to even consider; the few remaining options for NATO in Libya; why Osama bin Laden was not capable of being a terrorist mastermind at the time of his death; and how former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s easily-met million dollar bail marks the difference between the world’s elite and the rest of us.
