Imperial America's in Good Hands with Philip Gordon
by Stephen Lendman
Top priority is advancing America's imperium.
He's an American diplomat. He's a foreign policy specialist. He's Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. His portfolio includes 50 countries.
He's moving on. More on that below.
He serves US imperial interests. They include international security, NATO, coordinating with EU nations and regional organizations, counterterrorism, and nonproliferation.
"From the beginning of the Obama administration," he said, "we've made a deliberate and conscious effort to strengthen our ties with Europe and to work with our most important allies around the world on global issues."
Imperial ones are prioritized. He stopped short saying so. His new position includes them. He's Washington man in an important part of the world. He's Israel's man at State.
On March 2, the White House announced his appointment. He'll join Obama's National Security Staff. He'll do so on March 11.
