There is clear-cut evidence that Israel has interfered in all American elections since 1948. It bribed and threatened politicians and spread misinformation about Arabs and Muslims at large.
CIA, FBI, Democrats, and the Organized Jewry have all accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of using every dirty trick to get Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election. on the other hand, some Western political gurus have claimed that it’s Israel and not Russia, to blame for Hillary’s defeat.
According to some sources Washington had interfered in 81 foreign elections in addition to regime changes in over a dozen countries including Iran (2009), Pakistan (1971 and 2007), Lebanon, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Occupied Palestine (2006), Venezuela, Australia (1975), etc.
However, very few Americans know that Britain and Islamic Republic of Iran, too interfered in US elections by funny ways. Thomas E. Mahl in 1998 book, Desperate Deception: British Covert Operations in the United states, 1939-1944 – claims that hoping for help against Nazi Germany, the British promoted an anti-German Republican presidential candidate Wendell Willkie, a lawyer and businessman (he made Time magazine’s cover page) against Democrat president Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) in 1940. However, looking at FDR’s anti-German record, the book doesn’t make any sense.
Recently, American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen claimed that Iranian revolutionaries agreed with Republican Ronald Reagan’s campaign manager William Joseph Casey and later CIA director (d. 1987) met Iranian officials in October 1980 with a request to hold the US embassy staffers in captivity until November 9, 1980. Casey offered that if Reagan won, he would lift ban on shipment of spare parts for the American fighter-jets and tanks purchased by King Reza Shah government.
According to Madsen, some officials from Jimmy Carter administration also met Iranian officials to have the embassy staffers released in October 1980 to boost his re-election campaign.
“The Reagan conspirators included, in addition to Bush and Casey, Robert Gates and Donald Gregg, the CIA’s moles inside the Carter National Security Council. Carter’s national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, not happy with Carter’s human rights stance, may have given a «wink and a nod» to the treason. The entire caper was conducted without the knowledge of Stansfield Turner, Carter’s friend and U.S. Naval Academy classmate who served as CIA director,” claims Madsen.
According to Madsen, CIA bought the spare parts in black market and loaded them on SS Poet, a WWII merchant vessel, to ship them to Iran on October 24, 1980. After unloading them at Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, the vessel was declared lost at Sea along with 34 of its American crew.
“The CIA’s cover story, dutifully echoed by the Coast Guard, was the Poet sank without a trace in three minutes and without a distress call. One of the Poet’s previous trips, in the months prior to sailing to Iran, was to Israel. The vessel had been chartered by Hawaiian Eugenia Corporation, the Poet’s owner and a firm with murky CIA links, to sail to Israel. There is a strong possibility that the Israelis rigged the ship with explosives that would be detonated after its delivery of weapons to Iran on behalf of the CIA and Reagan-Bush campaign plotters,” says Madsen.
Madsen, however, didn’t mention the following facts in his article.
On January 20, 1981, the Jew York Times published the text of an agreement between the US and Iran to settle their grievances in the presence of Algerian foreign ministry officials in Algiers. According to the Algiers Accord, Washington promised to release Iranian frozen assets, worth $16 billion, restore diplomatic relation as existed prior to 1979 Islamic Revolution, and promised not to interfere in Iran’s internal affairs. In return, Tehran promised to release all remaining US embassy staffers.
The agreement was signed by Warren Minor Christopher (d. 2011), Jimmy Carter’s deputy secretary of state. Christopher’s mother Catherine Anne Lemen and his first wife Joan Southgate Workman were Jewish.
But as expected, as soon as the freed US hostages arrived in the United States on January 21, 1981, the newly inaugurated president Ronald Reagan ‘tear up’ the agreement.
The SS Poet cargo was paid fully by deposed King Reza shah regime ahead of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Richard H. Curtis (d. 2013), former managing- editor the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WARMEA) version of these events is more closer to reality than Wayne Madsen’s version.
