THE KENNEBUNKPORT WARNING
To the American people, and to peace loving individuals everywhere:
Massive evidence has come to our attention which shows that the backers, controllers, and allies of We call on the House of Representatives to proceed immediately to the impeachment of Cheney, as an urgent measure for avoiding a wider and more catastrophic war. Once impeachment has begun, it will be easier for loyal and patriotic military officers to refuse illegal orders coming from the Cheney faction. We solemnly warn the people of the world that any terrorist attack with weapons of mass destruction taking place inside the United States or elsewhere in the immediate future must be considered the prima facie responsibility of the Cheney faction. We urge responsible political leaders everywhere to begin at once to inoculate the public opinion of their countries against such a threatened false flag terror operation. are determined to orchestrate and manufacture a new 9/11 terror incident, and/or a new Gulf of Tonkin war provocation over the coming weeks and months. Such events would be used by the Bush administration as a pretext for launching an aggressive war against , quite possibly with nuclear weapons, and for imposing a regime of martial law here in the United States.List implications to prevent nuclear war.

Cheney's Ouster May Be Last Chance to Stop .
By Jeffrey Steinberg.
The latest word from the Democratic chicken-coop on Capitol Hill is that, if orders military strikes against , both he and will be immediately impeached. This is the newest prize-winning excuse of- the-week being circulated by a number of leading Democratic lawmakers to their key constituents, who remain fit-to-be-tied over the Dems' capitulation to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who has declared, for months, that impeachment is "off the table."
Just when you thought that things couldn't get worse, Congressional Democrats, having failed to support Rep. Dennis Kucinich's (D-Ohio) H.R. 333, calling for the impeachment of Cheney, have now gone one step further towards capitulating to another devastating Cheney-Bush war, through legislative acts of treachery that have given the a green light to bomb back to the Stone Age—even as internal political developments in suggest that the war party in has been weakened.
On Sept. 26, by a vote of 76-22, the U.S. Senate approved an amendment to the defense authorization bill, calling on to list Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a "foreign terrorist organization," subject to a wide range of economic sanctions. Military experts consulted by EIR confirmed that, while the designation principally authorizes economic measures, the ambiguities of the Bush Administration's so-called "Global War on Terror" makes the Senate vote a de facto endorsement of military action.
As the result of the amendment, which was introduced by two of Cheney's leading Senate allies— (I-Ct.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.)— can order a bombing campaign against at any time, without having to go to Congress for further authorization, according to a number of constitutional scholars and military analysts.
While two particularly egregious sections of the amendment were removed after protests by Sen. James Webb (DVa.), prompting some Senators to claim that the vote was not a de facto authorization to go to war, it remains to be seen whether the White House, particularly Cheney, will abide by that strict "interpretation."
The same day that the Senate was providing Bush and Cheney with their backhanded authorization for war, the House of Representatives was caving in similarly. By an overwhelming vote of 408-6, the House passed the Iran Sanctions Enabling Act, which would impose sanctions against any foreign or American companies investing more than $20 million in Iran's energy sector. According to Inter-Press Services' Jim Lobe, the Iran Sanctions Enabling Act has been the numberone legislative priority of the Israeli Lobby since the beginning of the year.
Once again, the stage has been set for a Bush-Cheney preemptive war. As has been warning for months, the only sure-fire war avoidance option left is the immediate ouster of from office.
On Sept. 25, retired CIA officer Philip Giraldi penned a frightening piece for antiwar.com, which took up the potential consequences of a U.S. military confrontation with . Under the provocative title "What May Look Like," Giraldi spelled out an unfortunately realistic scenario for an escalation of military conflict between the United States and , triggered by a low-level skirmish between U.S. and Iranian soldiers along the border. Under Giraldi's scenario, a full-scale war erupts between the United States and , which soon spreads to , where Shi'ite insurgents engage in large-scale asymmetric combat with American soldiers, who finally have to shoot their way out of the country, at tremendous loss of life. Ultimately, the conflict spreads to the Eastern Mediterranean, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent; it sparks a war between and , a violent coup in , a war between and Syria/Lebanon, rioting throughout the Muslim nations of the Pacific region, and, ultimately, U.S. use of nuclear weapons, which draws both and to the brink of intervention. As Giraldi concludes, " has begun."
While we are hopefully some distance away from such an Armageddon nightmare, the onrushing global financial meltdown, and the tensions and war-moves throughout Southwest make it a most appropriate time to take seriously the warnings offered by the former CIA officer.
Furthermore, according to a variety of military sources, the is stepping up war plans against through a planning unit called Project Checkmate. Created in the 1970s to plan out strategic warfare against the , Project Checkmate was revived in the early 1990s, as the air-war planning unit for . In June of this year, Project Checkmate was reactivated, to plan for future wars, targetted immediately at , and, in the longer term, against and . According to a Sept. 23, report in Rupert Murdoch's Sunday Times, Project Checkmate is the Air Force's primo planning agency. Col. John Warden ( ), who ran Project Checkmate in the 1990s, told the Times that the unit is vastly better situated to plan out the next war than the staff at the Central Command. "The Centcoms of this world are executional— they don't have the staff, the expertise, or the responsibility to do the thinking that is needed before a country makes the decision to go to war. War planning is not just about bombs, airplanes and sailing boats," he told the Times' Sarah Baxter.
A wide array of Washington insiders interviewed by EIR confirm that there is a humongous faction fight inside the Bush Administration, over war on . Vice President Cheney remains the chief proponent of preventive war, and Defense , with the backing of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA, opposes it, arguing instead for robust diplomacy. One centerpiece of the fight is the still-pending National Intelligence Estimate on Iran's nuclear program. The report was, according to several sources, completed in February and submitted in draft to the White House; but it has been sent back to the intelligence community at least four times. The reason? The report concludes that will not have the capacity to build a nuclear bomb until sometime in the next decade—after Bush-Cheney have left office.
Giving Ahmadinejad the Saddam Treatment
One of the more clearcut indications that the war party is still pressing for an attack on came during the visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to , to address the United Nations General Assembly. U.S. intelligence sources have confirmed that Ahmadinejad was sent to the United States, under orders from the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Kamenei, to signal that is prepared to compromise and avoid war. In appearances at , on CBS-TV's "Sixty Minutes," and in a closed-circuit broadcast into the National Press Club in , the Iranian President was repeatedly insulted and ridiculed. As one longtime observer put it, "Ahmadinejad was given the treatment," referring to an early 1990s interview with Saddam, in which he was publicly trashed, as a signal that the United States was turning towards war.
Just hours after Columbia University President Lee Bollinger delivered a 30-minute "bill of indictment" against the Iranian leader, in introducing him to a university audience, a group of scholars and journalists gathered at the . campus of Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), to discuss the Iranian situation. One speaker, M.J. Rosenberg of the Policy Forum, an organization created after the 1993 Oslo Accords to promote a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict, lamented that Dr. Bollinger's behavior had reminded him of "the ."
The forum was convened to release a new book by SAIS graduate Dr. Trita Parsi, on the complex and treacherous relationship among , , and the United States. Dr. Parsi and the other speakers highlighted the recent signals by the government in , that it wishes to resolve all the issues of conflict with , through diplomacy and compromise, not military conflict. The re-emergence of Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, as a counterweight to ; the recent progress in Iranian negotiations with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over Iran's nuclear energy program; and the Iranian government's release of a number of Iranian-American dual citizens from custody, were all cited as evidence of a turn in Iranian diplomacy towards the United States. Furthermore, Dr. Parsi cited the May 2003 communiqué between then- Iranian President Seyyed and then- U.S. Secretary of State , offering comprehensive bilateral talks "with no preconditions," as evidence that has been seeking a diplomatic rapprochement with for a long time. That May 2003 offer was flat out rejected by the Bush White House, with Cheney and then-Defense Secretary most aggressively opposing any talk with .
EIR's own sources emphasize that Iran's top leadership has woken up to the fact that at least some factions inside the Bush White House are intent on a military confrontation with , before leaving office, and that the Iranians are attempting to demonstrate that they are prepared to negotiate.
It is in this context that LaRouche has again warned Congress that its failure to force 's ouster from office could go down as the fatal act of cowardice that destroyed the American Republic.
