LaRouche gives preliminary assessment of U.S. strikes

The following is a summary of an assessment by Lyndon LaRouche on Aug. 21, of the U.S. strikes against Sudan and Afghanistan:

  1. Any attempt to analyze these events outside the context of the systemic financial and civilizational crisis, is meaningless;

  2. On Aug. 14, LaRouche began a paper, titled "Behind the Bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Kenya," which analyzes in detail the responsibility of London-centered oligarchical forces and their British-cum-Israeli mercenary assets, in carrying out the bomb attacks in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Before this document could reach the Clinton administration, a powerful combination of British forces in the State Department and the FBI went into a full mobilization to mislead the President to take an investigative trail, which ultimately resulted in the trap of the action in Sudan;

  3. This massive and systematic operation to mislead the President was done in the environment of the Kenneth Starr operation around the Monica Lewinsky matter. Additional pressure was exerted on the President, indicating that retaliatory action, following the false State Department-FBI trail, would somewhat loosen up the hyper-tense situation for the President, including the danger of impeachment;

  4. The operations in Afghanistan are of a special nature, and of a completely different quality, than the attack on Sudan. The pro-British clique surrounding the President, including Vice President Al Gore, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, the FBI, and the Department of Justice, put special emphasis on targetting Sudan, as a way of not just trapping the President, but of targetting LaRouche. The so-called "proof" against Sudan, as indirectly admitted by Defense Secretary William Cohen, is completely ludicrous;

  5. As long as Lyndon H. LaRouche is not exonerated and given his historically proper place, tragic events like these will occur again and again.
