David Wurmser Leaving White House Employment

-

David Wurmser, one of the Vice President’s most dedicated neoconservative spear-carriers, is leaving the administration to start a risk assessment consulting firm.
A close friend of his who still works for President Bush shared with me that Wurmser has been looking for a new position for quite a while — which is what actually led him to share some of this information that I reported and the New York Times, Time‘s Joe Klein and others helped substantiate. Ironically, the New York Times article, according to this source, made it more difficult for a consulting shop or firm to acquire Wurmser.
But several people tell me that Wurmser has wanted to leave for some time and that his departure now was consistent with what he wanted to do before disclosures about policy tension between contending teams in the White House over Iran policy.

    What are they going to do? Exactly what Hitler did. Everything is in place, 600 death camps in America, the press is controlled, the banking system, the medical industry, all controlled by the Ashkenazi Jews. It is not antisemitic to observe reality. WW1 and WW2 were all about breaking the military alliance between Turkey and Germany in order to take Palestine for Israel. Both wars started by false flag terror attacks and the gentiles tricked into fighting them.

    Looks like Wurmser is picking a nice niche for his new business endeavors, has he been taking classes at the Michael Brown Academy for Independent Businessmen?

    The War on Terrorism started well before the “neocons” came to power. George Bush, Cheney, Wurmser are not the enemy. The enemy is those that carried out 9-11 (the SECOND WTC attack): Islamic Fanatics.
    I don’t who wins the next presidential election, the next administration will have to deal with the REAL crazies: Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Pakistan and the Wahabbis in Saudi Arabia.
    You’re sneering at the wrong people.

    A risk assessment consulting firm? Risk assessment? Where was he in the run-up to Iraq?
    Why not tell the truth? He wants to spend more time with his money.

    I was looking at that same blog earlier and caught this —
    “Simultaneous attacks on the ports of Los Angeles and San Francisco would re-terrorize the population at large but would also help cripple the economy of a state that has shown resistance to the neo-con agenda (remember power crisis, Enron, ad nauseum). More importantly, if those ports were shut down by dirty bombs, the event would be used to overcome the current resistance to the NAFTA highway which we would “need” to move goods into the US.”

    It seems to me these risk assessment think tanks have slowly grabbed more power and intel than our congress. Last week, Chertoff spoke at USC to a DHS risk assessment think tank and warned of simultaneous attacks on San Fran and L.A.

    Rats are jumping off the zionist ship. Only Israel benefits from these endless Middle East wars. Iraq is the beginning. As we commit war-crimes in Baghdad, the US gov’t commits treason at home by opening mail, eliminating habeas corpus, using the judiciary to steal private lands, banning books like “America Deceived” from Amazon and Wikipedia, conducting warrantless wiretaps and engaging in illegal wars on behalf of AIPAC’s ‘money-men’. Soon, another US false-flag operation will occur (sinking of an Aircraft Carrier by Mossad) and the US will invade Iran.. Then we’ll invade Syria, then Saudi Arabia, then Lebanon (again) then ….

    The same people that were the Nazi party are the same people that now have control of our government.
    Who are they? They are the Ashkenazi sect of the Jews from Germany and Poland.

    They plan to make an international financial feiftom in Israel. Star wars program put up the satellites that they are going to use.
    By deception thy shalt make war. – The motto of the Israeli Mossad.

    Now you KNOW why Hitler and other leaders of the past had these vermin yanked from ALL positions of governing power or any position of influence over the citizenry. Anti-Semitic? Fuck No! It’s the truth and FACT of history.

    maggots abandoning picked to the bone National Treasury…say I have a question….if Hillary who promises to “get us out of Iraq” if she becomes President… what will happen to that 600 million dollar “embassy” we tax payers paid for….? I think some politicians are still lying….just why do we need a 104 acre “embassy” in a country about the size of California…? And just who will be occupying it..? Seems to me that if the Democratic party really wanted to bring all our troops home….they would stop allocating money for this “Embassy” monstrosity

    And, no doubt, Wurmy will need to get his s*** together before the Rosen-Weissman trial.
    These people are not only “thick-as-thieves”….they ARE thieves!
    Early 2002 – Wolfowitz and Feith create an Iraq war-planning unit in the Pentagon’s Near East and South Asia Affairs section, run by Deputy Undersecretary of Defense William Luti, under the rubric “Office of Special Plans” (OSP), into which the WURMSER-Maloof intelligence unit is folded. Luti had come to DoD by way of Cheney’s office. Wurmser becomes senior adviser to Undersecretary of State John Bolton, who was in charge of the State Department’s disarmament, proliferation, and WMD office and was actively promoting the Iraq war at State. OSP begins a relationship with Ahmed Chalabi, from whom they receive intelligence…..”
    (http://www.globalexchange.org/countries/mideast/iraq/1448.html).
    “The OSP was an open and largely unfiltered conduit to the White House NOT ONLY for the Iraqi opposition. It also forged close ties to a parallel, ad hoc intelligence operation inside Ariel Sharon’s office in Israel specifically to bypass Mossad and provide the Bush administration with more alarmist reports on Saddam’s Iraq than Mossad was prepared to authorise.
    “None of the Israelis who came were cleared into the Pentagon through normal channels,” said one source familiar with the visits. Instead, they were waved in on Mr Feith’s authority without having to fill in the usual forms.
    The exchange of information continued a long-standing relationship Mr Feith and other Washington neo-conservatives had with Israel’s Likud party….”

    Perfect. After all, look at the success he enjoyed with his “risk assessment” of the ramifications of invading Iraq. The sheer numbers of servicemen returning with injuries incurred while catching thrown roses are a testament to his abilities.

    Bye-bye Wormy! Glad to see you finally leaving the scene. All that treason work must be finito. Someday when the restraints come off the International Criminal Court at the Hague, Bush/Cheney/Wormy/Rice and all the little sycophants and weasels in the war criminals employ will be dragged into the dock. Kicking, whining, crying, and peeing themselves every inch of the way. What a grand and glorious day that shall be. Just wait and see!

    Don’t forget this about the firster wormer.
    “Wurmser’s cooperation with Fitzgerald would certainly come as no surprise to those who have been following his career. Last year, he was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for his possible role in leaking U.S. security secrets to Israel.
    According to a 2004 story in the Washington Post, the FBI interviewed officials in Cheney’s office and the Pentagon, including Hannah and Wurmser, former Defense Policy Board member Richard Perle, Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, to determine if they were involved in leaking U.S. security secrets to Israel, the former head of the Iraqi National Congress Ahmed Chalabi and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
    The revelation that Hannah and Wurmser have become prosecution witnesses, as well as being identified as the original sources of the leak, indicates Fitzgerald now may be looking into the motive for outing Plame and how Administration officials sought to derail a vocal critic of Iraq intelligence.
    The two administration hawks were instrumental in shaping the Bush administration’s agenda with Iraq prior to 9/11.
    Wurmser was the lead author of a 1996 policy paper for then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu titled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.” It called for removing Saddam from power in Iraq as part of a broad strategy to transform the region and remove radical regimes. Eight months before 9/11, Wurmser called for joint U.S.-Israeli air strikes on Iraq, Iran, Syria and Libya.”

    Hmmmmm, would you say he’s been looking to leave ever since he had to co-operate with Fitz on the Plame leak? Maybe the work environment is not as cozy?

    Reading the Huffington Post review of Mr. Wurmser’s past policy suggestions and views, he sounds like a total looney who may desire some appocalyptic showdown. What else can one possibly expect to come from Isreal unilaterally trying to reshape the Middle East or U.S./ Iranian military confrontation? Really, I sometimes am amased that any rational person can hold such views… let alone get such a prominent job in the national security realm.
