09/14/11 – Richard Silverstein – The Scott Horton Show

by | Sep 14, 2011 | Interviews

Richard Silverstein, writer of the Tikun Olam blog, discusses his article “Secret trial revelations prompt US-Israeli diplomatic storm” about the Israeli agenda revealed by FBI translator and whistleblower Shamai Leibowitz; why a DOJ prosecution should be anticipated, despite the First Amendment protection of journalists publishing classified information; why government employees interested in protecting the US should be prepared to pay a steep price for patriotism; how the media spun the story as “US spies on Israel!” while saving the actual content for later paragraphs; how Israel manages to control Congress and run US Middle East foreign policy; how the Israeli government gets op-eds published in American newspapers and starts lawsuits against American companies boycotting Israel’s goods; and why there was likely a deal between Obama’s electoral transition team and Israel to stop Operation Cast Lead two days before the inauguration.
