Mary Bancroft – Master Spy

“I can’t understand what the f–k you are saying.” The voice came from an elderly lady in the back row of my computer class. It was from Mary Bancroft, a part owner of The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of Autobiography of a Spy and was the woman behind the plot to kill Hitler, the lover of CIA chief, Allen Dulles, the lady who invited me to dinner to meet Woody Allen and, yes, Mary Bancroft was my computer student.

Kerry, Heinz, Assad, and Shia Islam

Faleh al-Khazali, Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Malikim Kerry, Teresa Heinz, Faleh al Khazali Assad’s fighter.

A U.S-backed Iraqi Shiite politico who proudly fought for Syrian President Bashar Assad against Sunni rebels in Syria’s civil war is now running for parliament in his home country, where the conflict has raised already-high sectarian tensions. To be in parliament or even to run for office in Iraq you must have the backing of the U.S. which has put the Iraqi Shiites in power.

Faleh al-Khazali is one of an unknown number of Iraqi Shiites who have gone to fight on the side of Syrian President Bashar Assad against a Sunni-led rebellion. This could not have happened without the backing of the U.S., specifically U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry.

Khazali, a 39-year-old father of four, commanded the first group of Iraqi Shiite forces that traveled to Syria “to free the area surrounding the Sayyida Zeinab [shrine] from the takfiris,” he told AFP in the southern port city of Basra, referring to Sunni extremists.

The shrine to the daughter of Imam Ali, located near Damascus, is a revered site for Shiites, which Iraqis who go to Syria say they are fighting to defend.

“We entered Syria a year and three months ago … in a preemptive war to eradicate” the extremists, said Khazali, who is running on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s State of Law list in the April 30 parliamentary election.

Iraq’s Shiite-led government has favored Assad, who is a member of the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.

“I was wounded in my eye in front of Sayyida Zeinab and lost it, and I am delighted and proud of this, and I will return to Syria as the situation requires,” Khazali said.

Khazali, a government employee, was also wounded in his right leg while fighting in Syria.

His public Facebook page makes no secret of his involvement in Syria, featuring pictures of him clad in camouflage, including one slightly blurred shot that appears to show him holding a Kalashnikov assault rifle in each hand.

Other pictures include a montage of the Sayyida Zeinab shrine, Khazali in battle dress giving a victory sign and a campaign poster with pictures of him and Maliki and the slogan: “We build Iraq.”

He is also shown lying in a hospital bed with a bandage over his right eye.

“Our national security, as Iraqis, requires that we go there [to Syria] to defend the holy places first, and second to defend Iraq,” Khazali said.

In addition, Kerry has torpedoed the Israeli/Palestinian peace process by accusing Israel of apartheid. This is not the only anti-semitic pro-Arab act that Kerry has produced. Kerry is himself of Jewish descent, but his family has changed their name from Kohn to Kerry and their religion from Judiasm to Catholicism.
