OBAMA, McCAIN, OSAMA; Dominic Lawson might know who is to be the next president of the USA.

Dominic Lawson might know who is to be the next president of the USA.

Former spy Richard Tomlinson wrote that journalist Dominic Lawson worked for Britain's spy service MI6 and that his MI6 identity was "Smallbrow". ("Editor 'provided cover for spies'", Guardian, 26 January 2001.)

Dominic Lawson was born into an influential Jewish family.

Lawson is married to the The Honourable Rosamond Mary Monckton, who was 'close' to Lady Diana.

Rosa’s brother, the Honourable Anthony Monckton, a diplomat, has also been an MI6 spy according to Tomlinson.

Reportedly, Anthony and Rosa’s grandfather worked for Edward VIII and kept a close watch on him for the security services. (MI6 & The Lying Game: Rosa Monckton and the Oxbridge spooks.)

MI6

In the Independent, Dominic Lawson, on 24 October 2008, wrote an article entitled: One election player has been overlooked: Osama bin Laden.

This article may provide clues as to who a certain group within the CIA and the Pentagon will try to put into power in the USA.

Lawson reminds us that in 2004, "Four days before that election, Al Jazeera broadcast a video tape in which America's most wanted finally took responsibility for the World Trade Centre attacks – and also ridiculed President Bush's response on the day."

According to Professor Joseph Nye of Harvard: "In the first poll after that tape was released, President George W Bush opened up a six-point lead over Senator John Kerry."

If we assume that the Al Jazeera tape was made by the CIA, then we can assume that the CIA, or a faction within the CIA, was backing Bush.

On 22 October 2008, we read that so called al Qaeda supporters want John McCain to win, so as to weaken America. (Al-Qaeda Hails Financial Crisis)

Lawson writes about what now to expect:

"We should indeed expect a bin Laden tape criticising John McCain, cunningly designed to cause Americans to reject Barack Obama instead.

"In that case, they must also accept the corollary: that if no such tape is sent to Al Jazeera, it would suggest that bin Laden really prefers that Obama became President.

"This, however, will be a difficult proposition for them to take on board; it would mean in turn that bin Laden and those who advise him are more worried by the prospect of a continuation of the policies pursued by George W Bush and are desperately anxious for a President who might take the military heat off them.

"The most recent authenticated leak of correspondence between the al-Qa'ida leadership suggests that their lives are not a bundle of joy, after seven years on the run.

"A December 2005 letter from Atiyah Abd al-Rahman to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi conceded that bin Laden and his colleagues are 'weak' and 'have many of their own problems'.

"On this analysis, bin Laden is a marginalised figure of exaggerated importance (as well as self-importance).

"After all, who could have believed that in the seven years after the outrages of 9/11, al-Qa'ida would have been unable to launch a single follow-up attack on the American mainland?

"That might be attributed in part to the security measures undertaken by the Bush administration, but it also reveals a complete inability on al-Qa'ida's part to recruit successfully in the heartland of their chosen enemy."

So, the Jewish Dominic Lawson appears to think that Bush has been successful against al Qaeda.

And he's hoping McCain will win?

And what might a certain faction within the CIA and Pentagon think about Obama?

On 1 February 2008, we read in Mother Jones (Obama's Israel Shuffle)

"The suspicion of pro-Israel advocates for Obama was most recently captured in a January 23 Jerusalem Post op-ed in which Danny Ayalon, the former Israeli ambassador to the U.S., called the senator's candidacy cause for 'some degree of concern.'

"A memo by a top official at the American Jewish Committee, recently leaked to the Jewish Daily Forward, neatly outlined the roots of this concern: In the late 1990s Obama reportedly called for an even-handed approach to the conflict; his pastor had praised Louis Farrakhan; he has called for diplomacy with Iran; and, of course, he was once photographed breaking bread with the late Palestinian-American academic Edward Said."

Mullen

However, there is a powerful faction within the Pentagon and CIA that appears to support Obama.

On 3 July 2008, we read:

"Did the country's top uniformed military leader endorse the Obama plan for Iraq and Afghanistan yesterday?

"In a briefing at the Pentagon, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen said he wants more troops in Afghanistan - but can't get 'em until forces are taken out of Iraq...

"The other day you had team Obama endorsing a second term for Defense Secretary Robert Gates. " -(Mullen Agrees with Obama on Iraq, Afghanistan?.)

CIA chief Michael Hayden, on 30 September 2008, said that the U.S. intelligence community is keeping a close eye on Afghanistan's border with Pakistan.

"All of the threats about which we are aware have threads that take them back into that Afghan/Pakistan border region, either in terms of command and control, or training, and direction," he said. (CIA Chief: US Must Continue to Take Fight to Al Qaeda)

Obama has expressed far more willingness than McCain to threaten sending U.S. troops over the border in ground raids against terrorists. McCain, by contrast, argues that Pakistan must control its territory. (RIVALS SPLIT ON US POWER, BUT IDEAS DEFY EASY LABELS)
