Obama vs. McCain an Irrelevant Choice


(WASHINGTON, D.C.) As John McCain and Barack Obama finish up their presidential campaigns, a former Capitol Hill insider is releasing an account charging that the outcome is irrelevant based on the issues that matter most to the long-term prospects for peace and prosperity.

In Guilt by Association: How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America to War, Jeff Gates, former counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance, chronicles the influence that Israel exerts over the candidates. Both McCain and Obama, Gates charges, are unwitting “assets” of an agenda pursued by Tel Aviv.

“Explosively revealing” concedes a former U.S. envoy to Baghdad.

“Stunningly provocative” says a former U.S. Ambassador to Qatar.

“Breathless just reading it,” reports M.I.T. Professor Noam Chomsky.

Cautioning voters not to expect real change absent a dramatic change in U.S.-Israeli relations, the author describes how pro-Israelis deceived Americans to wage war in Iraq in pursuit of Israel’s aspirations. That extremist agenda both endangered and discredited America by making the U.S. appear guilty by its association with Israel’s expansionist policies.

Guilt By Association fulfills its promise to “make treason transparent” by revealing how warfare is waged in the Information Age. Gates shows how foreign agents displace facts with what people can be deceived to believe—whether it’s belief in Iraqi WMD and mobile biological weapons laboratories, or faith in the infallibility of unfettered financial markets.

This explosive analysis accuses both political parties of offering voters only the appearance of choice while catering to Israeli interests. The promise of change is shown to be a sham in a presidential election in which both candidates are committed to a pro-Israeli agenda that, in turn, is closely linked to transnational organized crime

An acclaimed author, attorney, investment banker, political advisor and consultant to government, corporate and labor leaders worldwide, Gates’ previous works include Democracy at Risk: Rescuing Main Street From Wall Street and The Ownership Solution: Toward a Shared Capitalism for the 21st Century. Endorsers for these books include CEOs, heads of state, legislators, educators, commentators and Nobel laureates.
