Press Release

Behind the Targeting of Hillary Clinton:
Obama, Gorbachev and Susan Rice

December 2011

Qualified sources in Washington and Moscow have provided new details about just how President Obama, in collusion with some of the worst enemies of Russia, set up Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and set back U.S.-Russian relations and ongoing war avoidance efforts. The incident provides one more unavoidable piece of evidence that President Obama is criminally insane and an agent of the British Empire faction promoting world war, and must be removed from office immediately.

According to the sources, in the weeks leading into the recent Russian Duma elections, former Soviet Premier and British agent Mikhail Gorbachev was in phone contact with President Obama, UN Ambassador Susan Rice, and National Democracy Institute (NDI) Chair Madeleine Albright. Within hours of the Duma election results being announced, Gorbachev denounced the results and demanded new elections, triggering an international feeding frenzy against Putin and United Russia. Through USAID and private European and American foundations, millions of dollars had been poured into Russia to promote the opposition (USAID program director Sean Carroll had come to the agency from the Club of Madrid, an organization of former heads of state in which Gorbachev plays a leading role).

Next, President Obama ordered Secretary of State Clinton to issue a harsh condemnation of the Russian elections—before she had any opportunity to speak with her counterpart, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Naturally, the Russians responded with a criticism of Clinton for jumping the gun and issuing statements before any of the election monitors had even filed their reports.

President Obama then reportedly contacted Secretary Clinton a second time, chastizing her for being too soft, and demanding an even more outrageous statement from her.

The clear intent was to break a level of trust and candor that had been carefully developed by Secretary Clinton with Lavrov and other Russian leaders over the past three years. Fortunately, the LaRouche statement "Was It Hillary's Error?" had been released and widely circulated internationally, thus undermining the British scheme to break one key U.S.-Russian war avoidance channel.

Obama's personal ties to Gorbachev go back at least to March 20, 2009, when President Obama "walked in" on a scheduled meeting between Gorbachev and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House. On July 7, 2009, during his visit to Moscow, President Obama again met with Gorbachev face-to-face and sought his input into a major speech he was scheduled to give at a Moscow university. In May 2010, Gorbachev launched yet-another front group, the New Policy Forum, based in Luxembourg, with both George Shultz and Lord Robert Skidelsky (biographer of John Maynard Keynes and Sir Oswald Mosley) on the board.
