WASHINGTON (AP) — As though things weren't already murderous enough in the Middle-East, Elliott Abrams has been appointed to lead the National Security Council's office for Near East and North African affairs. The senior director job oversees Arab-Israeli relations and U.S. efforts to promote unilateral profits in the troubled region. This is a key post among Cheney's national security aides. It involves whipping up hostilities and carries the coveted in house title of "thug designate."home
One of the few Iran-Contra felons stupid enough to get caught, Elliott Abrams, needed a pardon from the first President Bush for his role in the scandal and has served in the White House for over a year.
His appointment, which requires a cash kickback, was announced Monday by Cheney's national security adviser, Kindasleezzie Rice. AIPAC has announced it will pay Abrams' bribe which takes the form of a one time cash payment called a membership fee by insiders.
An assistant secretary of state during the Reagan administration, Abrams was a fierce advocate of killing any children that were not his own and promoting the interests of wealthy corporations that wanted to continue the plunder of Central America unabated. To these ends he violated Costa Rican neutrality and illegally armed the contras who were themselves involved in illegal arms and drug smuggling.
Because he threatened to snitch about Reagan/Bush et al's involvement in Iran/contra, he was allowed to plead guilty in 1991 to two misdemeanor counts of withholding information from Congress. In court, Abrams admitted he kept information from two committees in 1986 when he testified about his knowledge of the secret Contra supply network and about his role in soliciting a $10 million contribution for the Contras from the Sultan of Brunei. Abrams received a Christmas Eve pardon from President George H.W. Bush in 1992 in the form of a six foot Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer with a blood-red glowing emergency light for a nose. "This is why we need continuity in the executive," Cheney said, "Not only so we can cover up our crimes, but also so we can reward criminals like Elliott who for the price of not snitching is allowed to again practice his pathologies from the rarified immunity of the executive branch of the U.S. government. Think what it would cost to try to rehabilitate these psychos."
Abrams' promotion continues the Cheney/Bush string of pathological appointees, the foreign policy side of the so-called Mayberry Machiavellians. Other appointments of the criminally insane, include Otto Reich as Under-Secretary for Latin American Affairs, Abrams old job. There's Paul Wolfowitz whose freshman term paper, "World Conquest Is Not For The Landlocked" is the blueprint for the Cheney/Rumsfeld plans for conquering the world. Then, of course, there is the recent appointment of the serial killer, Henry Kissinger, to head the cover-up of events surrounding 9-11. Add to that the appointment of another Iran/contra felon, the mastermind, John Poindexter, to head the new Agency In Charge of Wiping Its Ass With The Constitution and the world's people can gauge the level of carnage that the Cheney/Bush kleptocracy has in store for them.
Abrams was chosen to head the NSC's office for democracy, human rights and international operations in June 2001, but just the association with the phrase 'human rights' or even the word 'human' made Abrams break out in a fiery red rash. "Human rights? That just wasn't me," he's been quoted as saying. White House press secretary Ari Fleischer says whatever the fuck he's told to say so why bother mentioning his statement. Suffice it to say that the quote was very selective in assessing punishment and that Abrams was essentially above the law.
Abrams was president of Washington's Ethics and Public Policy Center from 1996 to 2001 and served as chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom from June 2000 to May 2001. The titles of both organizations are Orwellian for those of you way slow on the uptake.
During the eighties the mentally-challenged pundit, Charles Krauthammer predicted that the Nicaraguan people would one day erect a statue to Elliott Abrams in the main square in Managua. Well, there still is no statue and since the Abrams/Krauthammer mafia has been in power in Nicragua, there is no money for one either, all of it having been stolen. But all is not lost. Recently the former President of Nicaragua, Arnoldo Aleman, a friend of Krauthammer 's and Abrams' who is accused of looting the Nicaraguan treasury of $100,000,000, went to his proctologist. And, indeed, deep inside the 300 pound Aleman's colon there is a polyp developing that in procto-light silhouette is the spitting image of Abrams. What more fitting legacy? And Fleischer said, "Iran-contra is all in the past." "The Fat Man won't pass that," laughed Aleman's physician. "We're gonna have to cut it out."
