Ben Affleck could be hanged for war crimes: US intelligence expert

Is Argo “just a movie?” Or is it a disguised intelligence operation - maybe even a war crime?

These questions may soon be answered in court. Well-known French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre has met with Iranian officials planning a lawsuit against the makers and distributors of the controversial film.

Mohammad Lesani, General Secretary of Monday’s Hoax of Hollywood conference in Tehran, announced, "Argo is made by three film-producing companies in Hollywood...the Islamic Republic of Iran is going to sue all those who have been active in the anti-Iran domain, including directors and producers.”

If the makers of Argo are deposed under oath, they may be forced to reveal that their film -- like the fictitious film-within-the-film -- is a covert operation disguised as a movie. One of America’s leading experts on covert operations believes that Argo is the propaganda project of an intelligence agency or agencies, and that its purpose is to convince the American people to go along with Israel’s plan to drag America into a war on Iran.

That expert, Barbara Honegger, was a Special Assistant to the President as well as White House Policy Analyst (1981-83), and worked for over a decade as Senior Military Affairs Journalist with the Naval Postgraduate School, the premiere science, technology and national security affairs graduate research university of the US Department of Defense. The author of October Surprise, she is one of America’s leading experts on ultra-secretive covert operations or “black ops.”

In a radio interview Tuesday on the Kevin Barrett Show, Honegger stated that filmmaker Ben Affleck might one day be hanged for war crimes and treason - not only for Argo, which she said is designed to pave the road to war on Iran, but also for his role in the 2001 film Pearl Harbor, an earlier intelligence operation designed to pave the road to the 9/11 “New Pearl Harbor.” According to Honegger, Affleck - like his character in Argo - appears to be a covert operator posing as a filmmaker.

At the 2001 Golden Raspberry Awards, Pearl Harbor was nominated for six awards: Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Actor (Ben Affleck), Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple, and Worst Remake or Sequel. This pathetic excuse for a movie cost over USD150 million. Whoever invested that USD150 million was not interested in making money - or even making a movie. Pearl Harbor had only one purpose: To spread the “Pearl Harbor” meme in the public mind in preparation for 9/11. In a sense, Pearl Harbor was like Argo’s fictional science fiction film-within-a-film: It was a fake movie, but a real intelligence operation.

Donald Rumsfeld, like Affleck and the makers of Pearl Harbor, spent 2000 and 2001 hyping the “Pearl Harbor” meme in preparation for 9/11. According to Swiss researcher TH Meyer, Rumsfeld gave away hundreds if not thousands of copies of Roberta Wohlstetter’s book Pearl Harbor, ‘Warning and Decision.’ (Roberta Wohlstetter was the wife of neocon godfather and rabid Zionist Albert Wohlstetter, Paul Wolfowitz’s mentor, named in his obiturary “The world’s most influential unknown figure of the past half-century.”)

Rumsfeld’s (and Affleck’s) Pearl Harbor propaganda campaign set the stage for the chorus of “Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor” on September 11th, 2001. On Air Force One, as Bush flew from Florida to Nebraska, the event was already being framed as a new Pearl Harbor. Henry Kissinger quickly echoed the Pearl Harbor comparison. Zbigniew Brezezinski pronounced, “It (9/11) is more murderous even than Pearl Harbor, and the psychological impact is the same.” On the evening of September 11th, 2001, George W. Bush reportedly confided to his diary, “The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today.”

In Argo, the fake film (and real covert operation) is a CIA project, and Affleck plays a CIA agent. But were the Pearl Harbor and Argo movies covert operations by the CIA or by the Israeli Mossad?

Barbara Honegger, who has been studying intelligence agencies and their covert operations for three decades, said that both films “appear to have made by the CIA - or worse.” I asked what she meant by “or worse.” Honegger suggested that the criminal, drug-smuggling, 9/11-complicit “Bush crime family” wing of the CIA may have been working with the Israeli Mossad in all three co-productions: The movies Pearl Harbor and Argo, and the 9/11 covert operation itself.

Honegger voiced her hopes that the Argo covert operation will “blow up in Ben Affleck’s face.” How?

According to Honegger, Argo has stimulated US public interest in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis - and that as a result, the story of the 1980 “October Surprise” that overthrew US president Jimmy Carter in a CIA coup d’état is being picked up by the mainstream media. She pointed to a March 5th Christian Science Monitor story reporting the testimony of then-Iranian-president Bani-Sadr, who has repeatedly confirmed that George H.W. Bush and William Casey made a deal with top Iranian leaders to keep the US hostages locked up long enough to ensure the defeat of then-US-president Jimmy Carter.

Honegger stated that the Bush-linked criminal wing of the CIA, in some cases together with the Israeli Mossad, perpetrated several of the worst crimes in recent history, including the JFK assassination and the 9/11 false-flag event. She said that the same forces, led by extremist Likud elements in Israel, are planning to launch a war on Iran, via a false-flag attack against a US ship in the Persian Gulf, by this summer. According to Honegger, the exposure of the 1980 October Surprise can help prevent such a war.


Will Ben Affleck, and other covert operators working to launch a criminal war of aggression against Iran, ever be brought to justice? Iran’s lawsuit against the makers of Argo is a good place to start.
