Robert Bartley reveals that the hub-bub surrounding the Neo-Con, Straussian conspiracy in the popular press originated in the anti-Jewish fever swamps of the Lyndon LaRouche 2004 Presidential campaign.
Here are two paragraphs from Bartleys column:
"Just weeks after the LaRouche in 2004 campaign began nationwide circulation of 400,000 copies of the Children of Satan dossier, exposing the role of University of Chicago fascist philosopher Leo Strauss as the godfather of the neo-conservative war party in and around the Bush Administration, two major establishment publications have joined the exposé."
So brags an article under the byline Jeffrey Steinberg on Executive Intelligence Review, a Web site devoted to the perennial presidential campaign of Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. This time around, Mr. LaRouche is running on a platform equating the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon with the 1933 Reichstag fire, set by Nazis so they could blame the Communists and take over the German government.
With sources like these, no wonder the New York Times is doing so well.
