Remember Elliott Abrams, of Iran-contra ill-fame
? Back in the day, he wasn't so very opposed to Arabs -- in fact, he shook down the Sultan of Brunei for a $10 million contribution to the wars in Central America (which that damned Congress had decided not to fund).
His wife, Rachel, is another fun person. Here she is, outlining her sick plans to murder millions of people
guilty of the crimes of being Arab and in the way of Greater Israel:
Then round up his captors, the slaughtering, death-worshiping, innocent-butchering, child-sacrificing savages who dip their hands in blood and use women-those who aren't strapping bombs to their own devils' spawn and sending them out to meet their seventy-two virgins by taking the lives of the school-bus-riding, heart-drawing, Transformer-doodling, homework-losing children of Others-and their offspring-those who haven't already been pimped out by their mothers to the murder god-as shields, hiding behind their burkas and cradles like the unmanned animals they are, and throw them not into your prisons, where they can bide until they're traded by the thousands for another child of Israel, but into the sea, to float there, food for sharks, stargazers, and whatever other oceanic carnivores God has put there for the purpose.
Here's the kicker: Last week, Elliott Abrams accused the Occupy Wall Street protesters of indulging in hate speech.
There's a lot more to be said about the way Abrams ran the contra war -- including the very real possibility that he countenanced drug smuggling on behalf of that effort. Here's a taste
In a February 10, 1986 memo, Robert Owen tells North--now “ Blood and Guts”-- that a plane previously used by Vortex Corporation in Florida had been used to run drugs. The owner of the firm was a known drug dealer, and a humanitarian venture controlled by North and Elliott Abrams paid the firm $300,000 that year. The memo also detailed Contra drug activities and suggested that two drug dealers working with them were probably just in it for the money...
Oddly enough, Abrams is now one of the few people trying to draw attention to the Wachovia scandal
, which involves a big U.S. bank kept afloat by Mexican dug money. Listen to Elliott, kidlings. He knows about such things.
Of course, he would probably accuse me of hate speech for writing this post.PS.
Speaking of hate speech, note this gem from the '80s
“The Council on Hemispheric Affairs reported that the breakdown of the Nicaraguan talks also implemented the game plan urged several weeks ago by Assistant Secretary of State Elliott Abrams: that the administration was urging the contras not to sign a peace agreement with the Sandinistas, but go along with a prolongation of a de facto truce, hoping that some adventitious Sandinista military action, like shooting down a contra supply plane or opening fire on a contra unit, would enable the White House to seek a resumption of lethal military aid from Congress. According to Abrams this was the very least that he was hoping for. When asked what was the most that the United States would do if given such a pretext, he responded, "We'll flatten Managua."
