Hillary -- Obama's Stooge for War and Wall Street

August 12, 2016 EIR Manhattan Marches 7
Aug. 4—Within 24 hours of Hillary Clinton’s
formal nomination as the Democratic
Party’s 2016 presidential candidate,
some of Clinton’s top foreign policy
and national security campaign advisers
came out with blood-curdling attacks
against Russia and against Syrian President
Bashar al-Assad.
Even as the Democratic Convention
was underway, former CIA Director and
Defense Secretary under Barack
Obama, Leon Panetta, told the convention
on July 27 that the key to
ending the Syrian war is to overthrow
President Assad. Two days
later, Jeremy Bash, Panetta’s former
chief of staff at CIA and the Pentagon
and now a top adviser to Clinton,
told the Daily Telegraph that
one of Clinton’s first actions as President
would be to order a top-down
review of Syria policy, with the goal
of putting the ouster of
Assad at the top of the priorities.
He argued that there
is no prospect of defeating
the Islamic State and Jabhat
al-Nusra without removing
Michèle Flournoy, who
is viewed as Hillary Clinton’s
top choice to be Secretary
of Defense, told Defense
One that a new
administration must create a
“no bomb zone” in the north
of Syria, to safe-house rebel
fighters and train and arm
them to overthrow Assad, as
well as to combat ISIS and
Al-Nusra. She advocated the use of standoff
weapons—guided missiles which can
be launched from sufficient distance to
protect the attackers from defensive
action—against the Syrian Army as another
escalation in the regime-change
war launched against Syria by President
Obama and Secretary of State Clinton in
early 2011.
Flournoy is the CEO of the Center for
a New American Security (CNAS), a
think-tank dominated by Clinton advisers
and other neoconservatives.
Flournoy’s interview with Defense
One was a condensed version of a
report CNAS had just produced from
its ISIS Study Group, which included
a collection of war-hawks
and neocons who are all part of the
Clinton stable: Ryan Crocker, Kimberly
Kagan, Joseph Lieberman,
Gen. David Petraeus, Kenneth Pollack,
Andrew Tabler, and
Frances Townsend.
In May, CNAS had published
a blueprint for global
confrontation, called “Extending

petitive World Order,” which was
co-authored by Robert Kagan, a
leading neocon who prepared a similar
study for the incoming Bush-
Cheney Administration in 2000, the
“Project for a New American Century.”
Both documents advanced a
unipolar world based on projection
of ever-expanding U.S. military
power. The PNAC study was widely
seen as the game-plan that Bush and
Cheney used to launch the decade of
permanent wars in Afghanistan and
Iraq,— a game-plan later extended
by Obama and Clinton into Syria
and Libya.
Following the diatribes by Panetta,
Bash, and Flournoy, many
astute observers concluded that the
attacks on Syria, Russia, and China
which were included in their combined
remarks, could not have been
issued without prior approval by
Hillary Clinton herself.
In short, Clinton has declared
herself as the “continuity” candidate
from the nearly two decades of permanent
war launched by Bush and
Obama. Those wars have now put
the world on the verge of thermonuclear
war with Russia and China,—
a war that will wipe out humankind.
While serving as Secretary of
State, Hillary Clinton was one of the
most strident advocates of war and
more war in the Obama Administration.
Clinton was and remains a
strong promoter of the need to overthrow
the Assad government in Damascus,
through direct U.S. military
involvement if necessary. Her
demand to create a no-fly zone inside
Syrian territory is a blatant violation
of all principles of national sovereignty,
and her role in the launching
of the disastrous Libyan war—
widely described as the decisive vote
in the rush to regime-change—has
created a permanent crisis through-

Lyndon LaRouche
Aug. 5—In recent discussions with associates
in the wake of the Democratic Convention
in Philadelphia, Lyndon La-
Rouche said of Hillary Clinton, “She is
not a winning figure. Nor is he [Trump].
The only thing they can do is to cause
doom. They cannot win, except by causing
doom.” He went on to describe Hillary
Clinton as “a professional stooge for
Obama,” who is running a “swindle
against the people of the United States.”
He said that she is on the edge of “going
down as a political figure.” LaRouche
identified the starting point of that doom
as the moment on July 13, 2015, when
LaRouche PAC organizer Daniel Burke
asked Hillary Clinton at a Manhattan
event whether she would act to reinstate
Glass-Steagall. “He insisted that he get an
answer, and she refused. She’s just making
more and more enemies,” LaRouche said.
LaRouche further emphasized that
someone has to identify what caused
Obama to become President of the United
States, and pointed to the role of British
Empire operator George Soros. He said,
“Obama is an instrument of this body.”
Hillary has made herself a tool of the
same British Empire that runs Obama, by
her decision to support him. Hillary Clinton
has been identified as the instigator of
the Obama Administration’s 2011 bombing
of Libya, and the subsequent murder
of its President Muammar Gaddafi. She
later wittingly lied about the cause of the
Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S.
Consulate in Benghazi, which resulted in
the deaths of four American citizens, including
Ambassador Chris Stevens.

out the African continent, leading to
mass deaths and social chaos.
It was Hillary Clinton, along
with Susan Rice and Samantha
Power, who pushed for the ouster of
Libyan leader Qaddafi, even though
it meant aligning with hard-core
Al-Qaeda and related jihadist terror
groups. The overthrow and assassination
of Qaddafi turned Libya into
an ungovernable no-man’s-land,
run by warring cliques of heavily
armed militias, many dominated by
Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb
(AQIM) and subsequently by the
Islamic State.
Nuland’s Nazis
The weapons that were “liberated”
from Libyan government
stockpiles have fueled wars across
the African continent, and large quantities
of those “loose weapons” were
smuggled into Syria, through U.S., British,
Saudi Arabian, Qatari and Turkish
channels, into the hands of the jihadists
who have turned Syria and Iraq into a
Hell on Earth. Millions of refugees from
the North African, Syrian, Iraqi, and
Afghan conflicts, all boosted by Obama
and Clinton, have flooded into Western
Europe in desperate flight for their lives,
creating the biggest refugee crisis in the
entire postwar period.
Hillary Clinton’s four years as Secretary
of State for Barack Obama, led directly
to the events of Sept. 11, 2012,
when jihadists from Ansar al-Sharia
staged a heavily-armed assault on the
U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi,
Libya, resulting in the murder of U.S.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens and
three other American officials.
As State Department documents detailed,
for months prior to the Benghazi
9/11 attack, Ambassador Stevens and
other U.S. diplomats in Libya had begged for increased
security personnel. The State Department
compiled a grid of scores of attacks on foreign diplomats
and even the International Red Cross, but security
was actually stripped, rather than
boosted. While State Department official
Patrick Kennedy was ostensibly in
charge of security arrangments for the
U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya,
the buck really stopped with the Secretary—
Hillary Clinton.
As the Benghazi attack on 9/11/12
was unfolding, live reports from Benghazi
and from the embassy in Tripoli
made clear that the attack on the mission
was premeditated, well-planned,
heavily armed, and deadly. A Defense
Intelligence Agency assessment, released
within the government days
after the attack, spelled out precisely
how the attack was conducted.
Yet, President Obama and Secretary
of State Clinton, more concerned with
the upcoming November 2012 presidential
elections, chose to lie to the American people
and claimed that the attack in Benghazi was a “spontaneous”
protest against a little-known video slandering
the Prophet Mohammed—a baldfaced lie.

That lie, worked out in a late-night
phone call between President Obama
and Secretary Clinton, and first issued to
the public in a press release issued under
Clinton’s name, was maintained for
days. On the Sunday after the attack, National
Security Adviser Susan Rice went
on a string of interview shows to peddle
the “spontaneous protest gone wild” lie,
first issued by Clinton.
Hillary Clinton put the re-election of Barack Obama
ahead of the truth and the vital national security interests
of the United States. She calculated that if she had
told the truth and resigned from the Administration,
Obama would have been defeated for re-election, she
would have been blamed, and her own future prospects
of being Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party
would have been ended.
Lyndon LaRouche presented the case against Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama in an historic press conference
in Washington, D.C. at the National Press Club in
the weeks following the Benghazi tragedy. LaRouche
identified Clinton as a stooge for Obama and as a leading
member of the war party, that has given the United States
and the world the longest-running perpetual war, has
created the conditions for the rise of
the Islamic State, and has bankrupted
the U.S. economy.
Hillary Clinton not only presided
over the rise of ISIS and the
total destabilization of the entire
Middle East/North Africa region.
She, along with her trusted State
Department ally, Victoria Nuland,
created a total confrontation with
Russia, which, at critical moments,
put her in bed with outright Nazis.
Clinton promoted Nuland, the
wife of neocon
ideologue Robert
Kagan, to top State Department
posts, from spokeswoman for Secretary
Clinton and the Department, to
Assistant Secretary of State for European
and Eurasian Affairs. From that
post, Nuland presided over the “color
revolution” which overthrew the Yanukovych
government in Ukraine,
using assets from the Banderist Nazi apparatus,
which had fought side-by-side
with Hitler’s armies during World War
II,— and then spawned several generations
of avowed neo-Nazis like the Ukrainian
Right Sector and Azov Brigades.
At one crucial moment in the overthrow
of Yanukovych, Nuland boasted to
an audience at the National Press Club in
Washington that the United States had
spent $5 billion on the Ukraine “democracy”
campaign since the breakup of the
Soviet Union.
That 2013-2014 coup d’état in Kiev marked the dramatic
escalation of the Obama Administration’s already
ongoing provocations against Russian President Vladimir
Putin, actions that now include the deployment of
NATO forces on the borders of Russia for the first time
since the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in World
War II.
It was Obama and Clinton, joined at the hip, who
destroyed the United States-Russian relationship, and
have now put the world on a dangerous course towards
general war, and even potentially a thermonuclear war
of extinction. This is the real Obama-Clinton legacy.
Hillary Clinton detests the fact that Lyndon La-
Rouche has fearlessly made the truth of her record
available to the American people and the world.
