Podhoretz Gets Pissed at Book Crowd

Apparently the dangerous textbook neocon quack Norman Podhoretz got a little enraged over a crowd at a Barnes and Noble book signing who offered up real questions against his anti-American rhetoric and disinformation. He was there to promote his new book that might as well be titled 'I Love Fascism, But Use It In My Propaganda.' Podhoretz is of course one of Giuliani's main foreign policy contributors, and does his best to garner conservative Jewish support.

Asked whether there should be a fresh investigation into 9/11, Podhoretz simply dismissed the suggestion as "paranoia" and refused to answer the question.

He later defended the fact that he signed the infamous Project For a New American Century documents, a Neo-Con manifesto for world domination that includes advocating the use of race-specific bio-weapons, and claimed that the PNAC had been "misrepresented".

Podhoretz then admitted that the CIA had overthrown the U.S.-friendly Iranian government of Mohammad Mossadegh in the 50's, but called it "ancient history."

He then went on to make a case that Iran was behind the violence in Iraq and had formed an alliance with Al-Qaeda, despite the fact that the two are Shia and Sunni respectively and as such are arch-enemies. He was then educated about how in fact it was the U.S. government that is funding Al-Qaeda affiliated groups to attack Iran. This mattered little to Podhoretz, who was then asked why we should "fight back" against Iran by bombing them when they had never attacked us?

Podhoretz's answer was to state that, "We were attacked by Islamofascists on 9/11," clearly implying that Iran attacked the U.S. on 9/11. Such unmitigated and bellicose propaganda might fly on Fox News, but many members of the audience were having none of it, asking why they should trust Bush and the Neo-Cons after being lied to for six years.

"Why don't you shut up," barked Podhoretz, seemingly having abandoned his ceaseless regurgitation of warmongering rhetoric and finally losing his temper.

Several members of the audience were kicked out of the store by cops but as Podhoretz left he was heckled again as protesters chanted "No Iran war," before ducking into a vehicle and scurrying away.
Even the more hellbent neocons like Podhoretz have to be getting the clear message now that their days of controlling the foreign policy in this country are coming to an abrupt and ugly end.
