Douglas Feith is a neoconservative political agitator who served as the undersecretary of Defense for Policy for Former United States President George W. Bush, from July 2001 until August 2005. He has been suspected of treason in the United States, supplying Israel with confidential information.
Feith was born in a Jewish family and his father was a Zionist.1 As a testimony of his belief in Zionist occupation and supremacy, it has been reported that Feith had a picture of Theodore Herzl, the theorist behind modern Zionism, hanging in his room.2
Feith is currently working at the conservative Hudson Institute.
Feith has also been a board member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA).3 JINSA is known to be very influential in fielding hawkish Zionist politicians which have at historic times made pivotal decisions defining US foreign policy. Former US Vice President Dick Cheney and former national security advisor John Bolton are a number of notable US politicians which have worked with JINSA.
Iraq War Lobbyist
Feith, is part of circle of influential Zionist Jews who has been considered as one of the main architects of the Iraq war. Feith provided the US intelligence community with documents regarding Saddam Hussein’s “relation” with Al Qaeda.4 Feith’s influence in the Bush administration paved the way for neocons such as Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle to gain a foothold in the government.5
Along with individuals such as Richard Perle and David Wurmser, Feith wrote a notorious report titled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”. The report argued that the removal of Saddam Hussein’s regime was in Israel’s interests. This report was given to then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.6
Israeli Intelligence Asset in the US government
Feith supervised the Pentagon Office of the Special Plans. This office provided US officials with raw intelligence gathered from the country’s intelligence community. Feith hired Lawrence Franklin, who along with senior AIPAC officials such as Steven Rosen, transferred confidential documents to Israel.
It is worth noting that between 1981-1982, Feith worked as an analyst at the National Security Council but was fired because FBI suspected him of providing confidential documents to the Israeli embassy.7 It appears that Feith, joining a list of names such as Jonathan Pollard and Ben-Ami Kadish, was an Israeli intelligence asset operating in the US government.
