House Foreign Affairs Chair Ed Royce referred on Nov. 13 on CNN to a “policy review,” making clear that US aggression against the Assad government of Syria was the desired goal. Royce recounted happily that the US strategy might now include a bombing campaign against the Assad government (the main barrier to ISIS) to impose a no-fly zone over Syria designed to please the treacherous President Erdogan of Turkey — who has been a strong backer of the ISIS butchers — and “other regional actors” including “the Gulf states” — i.e. Qatar. Royce indicated that the US air campaign, including the overthrow of Assad, would be the price for a Turkish invasion of Syria with troops and tanks. All of this would add up to a general war in the Middle East — which may well be the goal of the more lucid of these plotters.

Royce also praised disgraced Marine General John R. Allen, once the deputy chief of the US Central Command for the Middle East, who was forced to resign after the revelation of his extensive and dubious email correspondence with the mysterious Lebanese society woman Gilberte “Jill” Khawam Kelley was revealed in November 2012. Allen, along with his colleague David Petraeus, was one of about two dozen generals and admirals forced out of the military after the Benghazi incident, which was a provocation to deliver the presidency to Romney, and has been compared to a warmonger putsch.

On September 13, 2014, Allen — although demonstrably a serious security risk — was appointed by Skull & Bones Secretary of State John Kerry as “Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL” based in the State Department — in effect, as ISIS Czar. Despite Allen’s checkered past, there was little media hue and cry. Allen was malodorous enough to be denied his promised Supreme Command in NATO after his missives to Kelley were revealed, but he somehow was rehabilitated in time for ISIS. Allen’s job description is to “sustain the coalition so it can operate across multiple lines of effort in order to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL.” Is Allen a focus of the defeatism and internal self-sabotage which has crippled the anti-ISIS effort? Has he been responsible for coddling Erdogan’s and Qatar’s pro-ISIS treachery? As part of the Petraeus faction, Allen must in any case be considered as a dangerous advocate of escalation and wider wars.

Allen’s sidekick is the randy Brett McGurk, a former National Security Council official who was denied confirmation as US Ambassador in Iraq in June 2012 when Cryptome published a series of his scabrous emails sent to Wall Street Journal reporter Gina Chon. Kerry soon rewarded McGurk the “Iraq expert” with the post of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.

Allen and McGurk are thus both rejects, who should have been stripped long ago of the security clearances they need to hold these jobs. It appears they are both serving as advocates for Turkey, Qatar, and the Moslem Brotherhood. They should both be fired at once.
