White House Speech Writer Turns Violent After 9/11 Questions


White House Speech Writer Turns Violent After 9/11 Questions

’Axis of Evil’ author David Frum Responds to Questions With Physical Assault and Obscene Language

A member of We Are Change L.A. was assaulted and cursed at by former White House speech writer David Frum during a book signing, according to reports.

Frum– a neo-con policy maker who is often credited with coining the phrase ’Axis of Evil’– allegedly lost his temper when he recognized Stewart Howe, of We Are Change L.A., from a previous book signing. Howe approached Frum to ask a question when Frum became angry, and then violent, reports indicate.

Frum told Howe, “The one thing I regret from our last conversation is that I didn’t say to you what my friend Christopher Hitchens said… which is, you should fuck off.” [expletive is reportedly a direct quote]

According to Howe, David Frum then got up from behind the book signing table and swung at Stewart and his camera while he was phrasing a question about the unraveling 9/11 cover-up and potential criminal charges.

Frum could be the first of former Bush Administration officials to actually get violent with reporters, though a number of mainstream media outlets have called for violence against 9/11 truthers, and at least one Bush supporter physically attacked a truther last week.

David Frum was quoted as saying, “Turn off the camera. Go away!” as he smacked the camera during the book signing event.

Howe replied “I will not go away. I will not turn off the camera. We are in public. Are you worried, perhaps, about the criminal liability of being a partner to mass murder after the fact? You know that is a real concern because the truth is coming out.”

Reportedly, David Frum swung repeatedly at the camera during this statement before members of event security separated him from Howe and sent him back to his seat. Moments later, Frum got up from his seat to assault Howe for a second time after over-hearing a discussion with the security guard regarding ’the neo-con agenda laid out in PNAC documents.’

David Frum allegedly tried to break the camera while Howe announced to the recording that “he’s assaulting me, and I have it on film.”

Frum then said, “I don’t want to be on your camera.” Stewart Howe responded, “We’re in public. I’ve just been assaulted by David Frum on film.”

Security escorted the We Are Change L.A. reporter from the event on grounds that he was obstructing the book signing, though the guard agreed that Howe had a right to free speech and that Frum had assaulted him.

Members of the book signing staff objected that he was holding up the line. Howe objected that no one was in-line and that he had asked the question in a civil and polite manner.

Members of We Are Change L.A. tried to clarify the incident with David Frum during an event the following day (April 27th) where reporters say Frum again became upset and battered their cameras.

Neocons Continue To Push ’Bombing Campaign’ Against Iran ’Now’

Following Podhoretz’s Lead, Right Wing Continues Push For ‘Bombing Campaign’ Against Iran ‘Now’

In the June 2007 issue of Commentary, neoconservative icon Norman Podhoretz laid out “The Case for Bombing Iran,” in which he argued that “the only prudent–indeed, the only responsible–course” is to “strike” Iran “as soon as it is logistically possible.” Though the recent NIE has slowed down hawkish belligerence towards Iran a bit, Podhoretz is still arguing that President Bush should take “military action” against Iran “soon.”

In a new article for Commentary, titled “Stopping Iran: Why the Case for Military Action Still Stands,” he argues that Bush should commence with a “bombing campaign”:

Iran can still be stopped from getting the bomb and even more millions of lives can be saved–but only provided that we summon up the courage to see what is staring us in the face and then act on what we see.

Podhoretz isn’t alone in his desire to keep pushing for an attack on Iran. Ever since Podhoretz’s recent article was released online, right-wing radio host Hugh Hewitt has been promoting it, encouraging his audience to “read the whole thing. Twice.” Hewitt has also been asking his guests, including New York Times columnist William Kristol, if they agree with Podhoretz’s assessment. Scarily, they do.

Bill Kristol:

HEWITT: Bill Kristol, do you think it is possible, not even likely, but just possible that the Bush administration will take military action against Iran in their last year?

KRISTOL: I think it’s possible. I think people were a little too quick after that National Intelligence Estimate came out, which was, I think, an attempt by the intelligence agencies to prevent the Bush administration from sort of seriously considering taking action. And I think people were too quick to say ooh, that rules it out, you know, they’re just paralyzed for the next year.

National Review’s Mark Steyn:

If we had a CIA that actually did anything, as opposed to sitting around Langley reading e-mail all day, we would be able to do that. But because we haven’t done that, the bombing option is becoming the only one that will be left, if not for this president, then for somebody.

Hewitt brought Podhoretz on his show yesterday, where he explicitly endorsed bombing Iran “now”:

HEWITT: Do you think President Bush needs to authorize air strikes against Iran now?

PODHORETZ: Yes, I do. The question is whether he will, although I thought, I was pretty confident that he would before the National Intelligence Estimate came out in early December. I still think in the end, he will order air strikes before he leaves office. But I am, as the NIE would say, I offer that prediction now with only low to moderate confidence.

HH: Well, I agree with your assessment of what has to happen.

With their desire to bomb Iran undeterred by the NIE, Hewitt and company are presumably pleased with President Bush’s repeated efforts to distance himself from the report.
