On the first day of the Jewish new year, Valerie Plame Wilson tweeted: “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” The tweet contained a link to an article from The Unz Review by Philip Giraldi with a headline with the same wording.
The article suggested that American Jews should be singled out and labeled as such whenever they wish to voice an opinion or appear on TV.
For those American Jews who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is ‘Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.’ That would be kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison – translating roughly as ‘ingest even the tiniest little dosage of the nonsense spewed by Bill Kristol at your own peril.’
Plame Wilson rose to fame in 2003 when she was purportedly outed as a CIA operative in a column by Robert Novak. She has since tried to back-pedal her comments, explaining that she tweeted out the piece after she “zeroed in on the neocon criticism” and “missed gross undercurrents to this article.” Maybe next time she should actually read the headline before tweeting the article out, as the headline plainly spells out the direction the rest of the article was headed. In fact, before backtracking Plame Wilson doubled down on Twitter, urging people objecting to the link to “read the entire article.” Then when she relented she said she hadn’t in fact really read the article.
She also said she didn’t do her “homework on the platform this piece came from,” a funny claim to make as she has tweeted articles from The Unz Review at least eight other times by my count of her search results inside Twitter. One such instance was in 2015, following then-candidate Trump’s claim that American Muslims were celebrating the fall of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. The Unz Review published a piece entitled “The Dancing Israelis,” claiming some people celebrating 9/11 were Israeli.
“Trump was right about 9/11,” the subtitle reads. “But they weren’t Muslims.”
Plame Wilson tweeted a link to the post, writing “I never heard this story about 9/11.”
This isn’t the first time she’s tweeted an article by the same author, either. In 2015, she shared a link to a post criticizing the role of Jewish people serving in Congress
“War Inside The Beltway,” the headline reads. “Israeli-occupied Congress confronts the White House.”
“Most of the Congressmen being quoted in the media are Jewish and are openly stating their concern for Israel while the media is uncritically accepting that as a reasonable position,” Giraldi wrote in 2015.
Plame Wilson commended the writeup, particularly the bit about former CIA Director James Woolsey being a “fully owned parasite hovering in a regular neocon orbit who spoke at the recent ‘Stop Iran’ rally in New York City.”
In 2014, Plame Wilson tweeted a link to an article by the same author entitled: “Why I Dislike Israel.”
“Well put, Mr. Giraldi,” she wrote in a tweet linking to the piece.
Understandably, Plame Wilson’s tweet made a lot of people upset, especially because it occurred on the first day of Rosh Hashanah — the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, which kicks off the Jewish new year.

Louise Mensch tried to explain how Twitter works to the former CIA operative.
Sorry, Louise, but Plame Wilson doesn’t appear to need your helpful tips, as it appears the former CIA operative knows what she’s doing.
