LaRouche Targets the DLC: ‘Protection Racket for Cheney’  

by Jeffrey Steinberg and Edward Spannaus

The Democratic Leadership Council, consisting of neo-conservative “stay-behinds” in the Democratic Party, is the only reason that Vice President Dick Cheney has not been forced to resign, or be impeached, as a result of the lies he told to manipulate the President and Congress into going for war against Iraq. The DLC, founded in the mid-1980s, is a creation of the “Synarchist” fascist circles on Wall Street, as personified by Felix Rohatyn, the banker from Lazard Brothers who is also a board member of the DLC. It is also the bastion of opposition within the Democratic Party to Lyndon LaRouche’s campaign for the Presidency.

by Michele Steinberg

Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.) rushed through legislation supporting the Israeli policy of “preventive assassinations,” blaming the Palestinians for all the violence that has occurred since the Aqaba summit.
