“The urgent issue of war and peace in Iraq should be decided by the people we elected, not a commission. If we’d wanted James Baker to run the country, we’d have voted for him.”


The Baker (Botts) Hamilton Iraq Study Group is too deeply linked to Saudi Arabia to have any credibility. James A. Baker III is a Senior Partner in Baker Botts. His son, James A. Baker IV heads the Washington office. Baker Botts is defending Saudi Arabia against a 9-11 lawsuit.

Lee Hamilton said don’t follow the money on 9-11 financing. But Congress had already found them, search on Saudi Arabia 9-11 and see Lee Hamilton has admitted he didn’t question Reagan or Bush Elder when Hamilton ran an Iran Contra investigation. Hamilton said he didn’t ask them because the country couldn’t have another impeachment. Hamilton has admitted he hid information in an investigation to the country when his midwestern straight arrow personality was being relied on to tell the truth.

Hamilton has, to read between the lines, covered up for Saudi Arabia, even after Congress found the links. These are the 27 pages in 2003 that couldn’t be published. The truthout site has a letter with a summary of the information.

Look at James A. Baker IV and III at the Baker Botts webpage. Its full of oil deals in Central Asia, Middle East, and all the countries in the region. They want to do deals with Iran.

They are selling us out, letting Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran get away with terrorism world wide and now letting Iran get nuclear weapons. Saudis are many of the foreign fighters in Iraq the Post has reported. They are funding insurgency in Afghanistan. Our troops are being sold out by the establishment for pipeline deals, etc.

== Later comment

They should tell the facts and forget the recommendations.  The difficult facts, like Saudi foreign fighters and money.  This is the opposite of the Hamilton Kean 9-11 Commission.

They hid key facts, like Saudi funding and Pakistan’s links to it, and instead made recommendations.  Those turned out to be pure smokescreens, reorganize the government, to distract us from what was going on, Saudi and Pakistan involvement, already spotted in 2003 by Congress, from being acted on.

Panel May Have Few Good Options to Offer

Panel May Have Few Good Options to Offer
Bipartisan Group’s Plan Expected in Dec.

“After meeting with President Bush tomorrow, a panel of prestigious Americans will begin deliberations to chart a new course on Iraq, with the goal of stabilizing the country with a different U.S. strategy and possibly the withdrawal of troops.”

Baker Hamilton Iraq Study Group


Many good comments above. Basically, the study group is pretending we are at war with Iraq and nothing else. This is the Religion of Peace PC. It means we can’t talk about anything.

Saudi Arabia, Iran and Pakistan are free to fund insurgencies against us in Iraq and Afghanistan and to support genocide in Africa, and we can’t talk about it under the MSM Democrat Republican Cone of PC Silence. Of course, the original cone of silence was where you could talk truth without being afraid. Problem is that only happens on the Internet. We have to go to the source to win.

If in WWII we had stopped in N. Africa to nation build, we would have lost. We didn’t have a Powell to spout KGB propaganda of 3rd world liberation and reparations. Instead we just invaded Sicily, Italy, France and Germany. We didn’t nation build along the way.

Does anyone even know when the last US troops left North Africa? No. Everyone forgot N. Africa and we went on to win.

In this war, we nation build the first little countries we get to instead of island hop to Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia the countries that are the real source of what’s against us. The time to fight wars is when we lose 200 killed.

The Saudis are the source of the foreign fighters and money in Iraq. Go the source countries against us, Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

We will fight forever until we go against those 3. We have to put them all out at the same time, its like John Wayne’s oil fire fighting movie, Hellfighters (1968).


Bakers realism only extends to the next check from Saudi Arabia.

Lee Hamilton has already said that Pakistan and Saudi Arabia had no link to 9-11 that he could find. Evidently he couldn’t find the 27 pages of the 2003 Congressional report linking Saudi Arabia to the financing of 9-11.

He also can’t find the web site of the Complete 9-11 Timeline. Nor can he find Christina Lamb’s London Times article, nor it appears anything else that might interdict the money flow from Saudi Arabia to big Washington law firms like Baker and Botts.

Now Baker and Botts has a James A. Baker IV, head of the Washington office. If he is young enough to collect Saudi money for 40 years, then Baker III isn’t going to recommend any action against Saudi Arabia. Why don’t we send the partners of Baker and Botts to fight in Iraq against Saudi foreign fighters funded and supplied from Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Send the Washington Office of Baker and Botts to Afghanistan. How long until they recommend we take on Pakistan after that happens? A draft of their kids might wake up Washington to who is funding the killing of our kids.

    “But in laying out their arguments, Sultan’s U.S. lawyers also presented highly detailed new evidence of the Saudi government’s role in funneling millions of dollars to a web of Islamic charities that are widely suspected by U.S. officials of covertly financing the operations of Al Qaeda and other international terrorist groups.”

    Saudi Government Provided Aid to 9/11 Hijackers, Sources Say
    By Josh Meyer
    The Los Angeles Times

    Saturday 02 August 2003

    WASHINGTON – The 27 classified pages of a congressional report about Sept. 11 depict a Saudi government that not only provided significant money and aid to the suicide hijackers but also allowed potentially hundreds of millions of dollars to flow to Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups through suspect charities and other fronts, according to sources familiar with the document.

    One U.S. official who has read the classified section said it describes “very direct, very specific links” between Saudi officials, two of the San Diego-based hijackers and other potential co-conspirators “that cannot be passed off as rogue, isolated or coincidental.”

    Said another official: “It’s really damning. What it says is that not only Saudi entities or nationals are implicated in 9/11, but the [Saudi] government” as well.”
