Judith Regan, the book publisher who was fired by the News Corporation last year, asserts in a lawsuit filed today that a senior executive at the media conglomerate encouraged her to mislead federal investigators about her relationship with Bernard B. Kerik during his bid to become homeland security secretary in late 2004.Link
The lawsuit asserts that the News Corporation executive wanted to protect the presidential aspirations of former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Kerik’s mentor, who had appointed him New York City police commissioner and had recommended him for the federal post.
“On or about June 13, 2003, ‘John Doe #7,’ a Brooklyn businessman, made a personal loan of $250,000 to Bernard B. Kerik (‘the John Doe #7 loan’). As Kerik well knew, john doe #7 obtained the funds with which to make the loan to kerik by in turn taking a loan from ‘John Doe #8,’ a wealthy Israeli industrialist whose companies did business with the federal government.”
And let's not forget about McGreevey's Little Boyfriend, the Israeli intelligence agent who had his dear, little heart set on a top New Jersey Department of Homeland Security post.
The pattern emerges: DHS = Israel's Provincial American Government
