It would have been doing the world a big favor had the Mossad assassinated GH Bush!
Former Mossad Agent – Victor Ostrovsky
If President John F. Kennedy was killed by a conspiracy orchestrated—at least in part—by Israel’s spy agency, the Mossad, this evidently not be the last time that the Mossad planned the assassination of an American president. According to former Mossad agent, Victor Ostrovsky, elements of the Mossad were plotting an attempt on the life of President George Bush. The reason: according to Ostrovsky, Bush was hated by the Mossad and considered an enemy of Israel.
This amazing revelation was published in the February 1992 edition of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. The author of the report was former Congressman Paul Findley (R-Ill.), himself a prominent critic of Israel. (Findley’s best-selling book, They Dare to Speak Out: People and Institutions Confront Israel’s Lobby, is a classic exposition of the way Israel’s lobby has worked to silence American critics of the foreign nation.)
Findley reported that Ostrovsky had learned through his sources in the intelligence community that because of President Bush’s seeming intransigence toward Israel’s demands, the Mossad had begun coordinating plans for the assassination of the American president. Ostrovsky relayed this information to several members of the Canadian parliament, indicating that the Mossad and not Israel’s elected leadership, is “the real engine of policy in Israel.”
One of those attending the meeting with Ostrovsky passed the information on to another former U.S. Representative, Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey (R-Calif.). Upon learning of the potential threat to President Bush, exCongressman McCloskey himself flew to Canada where he met with Ostrovsky. According to Findley: “Ostrovsky impressed McCloskey as a patriotic Zionist who believes the Mossad is out of control.
Ostrovsky told him the present leadership of the Mossad wants ‘to do everything possible to preserve a state of war between Israel and its neighbors, assassinating President Bush, if necessary.” “He said a public relations campaign is already underway in both Israel and the United States to ‘prepare public acceptance of [vice president] Dan Quayle as president.’ After lengthy discussion during which he became convinced that Ostrovsky was ‘real’ and telling the truth, McCloskey took the next flight to Washington.
Paul Findley is a former United States Representative from Illinois, who represented its 20th District. Was ousted because he put America before Israel
“There he relayed the information to the Secret Service and State Department, receiving mixed reactions to Ostrovsky’s reliability. An officer of the Navy Department dismissed him simply as a “traitor to Israel.” AMERICANS KILLED BY ISRAELI INTRIGUE Findley points out that in his controversial book, By Way of Deception, the aforementioned Ostrovsky documented a Mossad action which was “especially shocking to American readers.”
In that instance, 241 U.S. Marines were murdered by a terrorist truck bomb that plowed into the Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983. Although Israeli agents learned that the attack was impending, the Mossad headquarters in Tel Aviv ordered its agents to ignore the threat and to not alert the American servicemen to the danger. “We are not there [in Beirut] to protect Americans,” the Mossad leaders explained. “They’re a big country. Send only the regular information.” According to Ostrovsky, the “regular information” was “like sending a weather report, unlikely to raise any particular alarm.”
“Is it conceivable,” asks Findley, “that Israel’s Mossad might assassinate George Bush in order to put a more sympathetic man in the White House? It is well to remember two earlier occasions when Israeli authorities were willing to sacrifice American lives to serve their own national interests.” Congressman Findley points out two other occasions where Americans died or otherwise faced extinction at the hands of Israel:
On June 8, 1967, naval and air forces of Israel deliberately—and without provocation—attacked the American spy ship, the U.S.S. Liberty killing 34 American sailors and wounding 171 others. It was an attempt to destroy the ship and its entire crew.
During the October 1973 war, Israeli pilots were ordered to shoot down an unarmed U.S. reconnaissance plane that was overflying Israel’s secret nuclear bomb development site at Dimona. The plane, however, flew too high for Israel’s would-be assassins to reach. Assessing the potential threat to President George Bush, Congressman Findley concludes, “The U.S. Secret Service will be wise to assume the worst.”
Incredibly enough, at almost the same time Findley’s provocative report first appeared, several unusual events occurred that seemed to give credence to the allegation that there might indeed be a plot afoot to eliminate George Bush—if not physically, at least politically. Each of these threatening incidents took place during President George Bush’s January 1992 trip to the Far East. The most notable incident, of course, was the President’s bizarre public seizure while dining in the company of the Japanese premier. More than a few people speculated—privately—that the president might indeed have been poisoned.
This, of course, is speculation, but it is based in reality. Interestingly, it was while the president was on his Far Eastern junket that The Washington Post—the daily newspaper of record in the nation’s capitol—inexplicably reversed itself and began publishing a lengthy and glowing seven-part series hailing Vice President Dan Quayle. Obviously this seems to be a confirmation of Victor Ostrovsky’s claim that preparations were being made in the United States to make a Dan Quayle presidency palatable. The Post’s unusual flip-flop was made all the more potent when the news arrived that the president had been stricken. Quayle, evidently, already had the Establishment’s support if he had been unexpectedly thrust into the presidency. Oddly, prior to the Post’s turn-about, the Washington daily had been one of Quayle’s most persistent critics. However, something quite alarming also took place during that eventful week.
A SECURITY BREACH
For two days, during President George Bush’s visit in Seoul, South Korea, top-secret information regarding the president’s personal arrangements was inexplicably made available to the public. Incredibly enough, this was during a period when terrorist alert status was already high. Security experts believed that if potential presidential assassins had such action in mind, the security breach would have assisted them tremendously. According to Robert Snow, a spokesman for the Secret Service, “It wouldn’t be stretching it to suggest that the security lapse could have put Bush in danger. Blame for the lapse in security was laid at the hands of the U.S. Information Service (USIS), a branch of the State Department. For their own part, officials at the State Department were unable to provide an explanation of the bizarre security breach. The White House refused to comment.
The USIS published a list of the names and hotel room numbers of the president’s traveling party, which numbered 471 people. (The fact that the president was staying at the U.S. Ambassador’s residence was part of the information revealed.) Included on the list were the names and room numbers of 122 Secret Service agents, eight Marine guards, four presidential stewards and six military aides.
Also revealed were security control room locations in the hotel where the president was staying as well as the names of the 10 Secret Service agents heading security at the various locations that the president visited while in Korea. The room assignments of top administration officials accompanying the president, as well as those of the thirteen corporate executives along for the trip were also published.
This incredible revelation caused suspicion that perhaps there were those in positions of power who may not necessarily have been concerned for the president’s safety. The tentacles of Israel’s Mossad do reach far and wide— even into the depths of the U.S. State Department. Was this breach of security a first step in an assassination attempt—perhaps one to be carried out by some obscure Korean terrorist group acting as a “false flag” for the Mossad?
Retired Air Force Col. L. Fletcher Prouty, himself an acknowledged authority on covert operations—including assassination planning—says that 78 Off With His Head one of the primary necessary measures in any assassination plot is the process of removing or otherwise breaching the intended victim’s blanket of security. Prouty, who worked in presidential security with the military, knows whereof he speaks. According to Prouty, “No one has to direct an assassination—it happens. The active role is played secretly by permitting it to happen . . . This is the greatest single clue . . . Who has the power to call off or reduce the usual security precautions that are always in effect whenever a president travels?” F IN 1991, WHY NOT IN 1963?
In his 1994 book, The Other Side of Deception, Mossad man Victor Ostrovsky finally revealed the specifics of what he had learned of the 1991 Mossad plot against Bush: the Mossad planned to assassinate Bush during an international conference in Madrid. The Mossad had captured three Palestinian “extremists” and leaked word to the Spanish police that the terrorists were on their way to Madrid. The plan was to kill Bush, release the “assassins” in the midst of the confusion—and kill the Palestinians on the spot. The crime would be blamed on the Palestinians—another Mossad “false flag,” more about which we will learn in Chapter Three.
