Heshie’s Neo-Con-undrum?


Have any of you guys seen Heshie?

From the what took so long to register this absurd accusation file?—comes this appropriately conspiratorial (read Jewish Neo-Cons ad nauseum) story from one of the prototypical our persecutory fantasies are “news” outlets that inundate the Arab media, Al Arabiya.

News flash to Arab media fantasists peddling Antisemitic conspiracies, and their acolytes:

Major Coughlin isn’t a Neo-Con, and any dolt reading his public access thesis might (appropriately), if they had a reasonable complement of working Betz cells, understand the philosophical differences between Coughlin’s views, and those actually espoused by some of the most outspoken Neo-Cons.

But alas, here is the conspiratorial reductio ad absurdum Al-Arabiya narrative in its floridly (if typically) paranoid essence:

“Neo-con congressmen are expected to ask for an official investigation into his removal from office.”

  1. Amusingly, Al-Arabiya quotes Gordon England gushing about his Muslim mentor in the American Forces Press Service puff-piece that disappeared from the DoD Web site but may still be seen at:

  2. It’s not building my confidence as time passes with the DoD pretending it’s all a bad dream.

    People were sending up the red flags and shooting up flares in books and articles. There’s no excuse for not doing a basic background check on a guy you put in charge of all the most advanced cutting-edge weapons proposed for the future, one would think.

    Nothing makes me think we’re winning on any front except actual military combat. I wouldn’t be surprised if Hesh is left in place to avoid any controversy. Rosett will be attacked instead.

  3. I love the picture and the pure levity of it all. There was never a conspiracy theory the Arab world didn’t take a shine to.
