US continues establishment of new
airbase in northern Lebanon

May 9-11, 2008 -- US continues establishment of new
airbase in northern Lebanon
WMR was the first to report on the establishment of a major US airbase at Kleiaat (or Qlei’at) in northern Lebanon to facilitate logistics for America’s planned long-term stay in the Middle East, including the occupation of Iraq. We have now learned from our intelligence sources in Lebanon that on May 5, a representative from the US Embassy in Beirut spent three hours at Kleiaat surveying the airport and meeting with local officials. The secretiveness of the embassy official’s visit was highlighted by the prohibition of cameras at the airport.
The United States has made an agreement with the pro-US, Israeli, and Saudi government of Prime Minister Fuad Siniora to gradually transform the Kleiaat airbase from a civilian airport to a military airbase. The base will function under a NATO umbrella but will be controlled by the United States.
The recent move by Siniora against a private Hezbollah telecommunications network that extended from Beirut International Airport, south Lebanon, the Bekaa Valley, Mount Lebanon, and greater Beirut to pro-Michel Aoun Christian enclaves in Jbeil and Keserwan is seen as a way to ensure that the Hezbollah-Aoun March 14 Alliance cannot securely communicate. The fact that the Lebanese opposition to the pro-US government was able to evade total electronic surveillance by the Israelis, the US National Security Agency, and the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) prompted pressure on the Beirut government to act against the Hezbollah network. That triggered a Hezbollah retaliation and the outbreak of warfare between Hezbollah and its allies and the central government.
The outbreak of warfare between Hezbollah and the central government comes after a planned Israeli Mossad assassination of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut on April 25. That would have triggered an environment for the outbreak of a general war involving Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. That possibility prompted a leak from the office of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Olmert is now under pressure to resign for accepting bribes from Orthodox Jewish Long Island businessman Moshe (aka Morris) Talansky, dubbed the « Laundry Man, » between 1999 and 2003 when Olmert served as Jerusalem’s mayor.
Talansky is CEO of Globes Resources Group, an investment firm. Olmert and Talansky co-founded the New Jerusalem Fund, a charity for public works projects in Jerusalem. Talansky has also donated money to New York’s former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Bill Clinton, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT), and George W. Bush. and Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY).
