DR. JAFAR’S IRAQI ‘BEACH BALL,’ WHEN COUPLED WITH RUSSIA’S CLUB-K, PRESENTS A NATIONAL SECURITY NIGHTMARE THE U.S. CANNOT AFFORD TO RISK.
The next time you watch a freight train pass by a railroad crossing, or hear the evocative sounds of the mournful horns of trains passing in the night or railroad crossing warning bells as flatbed rail cars double-stacked with cargo containers roll by, or see a flatbed semi-truck hauling a cargo container down the highway, keep in mind that President Barack Hussein Obama and his administration awarded Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear mastermind access to Florida’s Port Canaveral cargo container terminal, a U.S. port of entry that gives Russia and its Axis of Evil client states unfettered access to the entire United States.
This paper will explore how the confluence of several seemingly disparate factors have come together to create a perfect storm, threatening the United States and the West.
The tectonic shift of (i) the placement of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear scientist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar and Gulftainer inside the wire at Port Canaveral with a 35-year container terminal lease through a secret operation known as ‘Project Pelican’ (ii) the dawn of Russia’s Club-K container missile launch system, (iii) The Jafars’ and Gulftainer’s joint venture with Russia’s state-owned Rostec, which owns 100% of the shares of Rosoboronexport, the exporter of the Club-K, (iv) Dr. Jafar’s miniaturized nuclear weapon, known as the ‘Arab bomb’ or ‘Beach Ball,’ (v) the Jafar family’s long-term relationship with Russia and the KGB/SVR and GRU intelligence services revolving around nuclear, chemical, and biological WMD, (vi) Dr. Jafar’s collaboration with North Korea on weapons delivery systems, and (vii) the similarities between Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ and the miniaturized nuclear weapon seen with Kim Jung-un, has become the perfect storm of danger, both on and off our shores.
In December 2016, we wrote “What Could Possibly Go Wrong.” Subsequently, we learned that several things have already gone wrong and could likely get worse. The advent of a new advanced weapon system designed and built by Russia, and the involvement of hostile foreign governments deeply tied to the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction (WMD) experts who leased Port Canaveral’s container terminal, have now made the already dire national security situation at Port Canaveral exponentially more dangerous. The situation has reached critical mass.
All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. – Sun Tzu
‘Project Pelican’: Gulftainer’s Jafar Family, Which Includes Saddam’s Rogue Nuclear Scientist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, The Creator Of Miniaturized Nuclear Weapon ‘Beach Ball,’ Given 35-year Lease To Florida’s Port Canaveral Container Terminal
‘Project Pelican’ was the secret operation that handed over the cargo container terminal at Port Canaveral, Florida to Iraq’s oil-wealthy Jafar family, major power players in Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear WMD programs.
Particle physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, under the watchful eye of KGB General Yevgeney Primakov, masterminded Saddam Hussein’s top secret Petrochemical Complex Three (PC-3) nuclear weapons program. As Saddam’s Deputy Defense Minister and chief nuclear adviser, Dr. Jafar also oversaw procurement operations for Iraq’s vast nuclear, biological, and chemical WMD programs.
Dr. Jafar, his brother Hamid Jafar, and Hamid’s sons Majid and Badr are all key executives steering the family business, the Crescent Group conglomerate. The Crescent Group is the ultimate parent company of Gulftainer and Crescent Petroleum.
The Jafars were able to take control of the American cargo facility at Port Canaveral through an illegal 35-year lease granted to the Jafars’ UAE-based ports company Gulftainer (GTUSA).
Hamid Jafar was the key player in Saddam’s ‘Oil for Superweapons’ scheme, also known as ‘Put a Tyrant in your Tank.’ Under this scheme Crescent Petroleum, acting as a front company for Saddam, would sell millions of barrels of Iraqi crude oil to be used for Fina gasoline sold in the United States in order to fund Dr. Jafar’s rogue nuclear weapons program.
This ‘Oil for Superweapons’ scheme resulted in Crescent Petroleum becoming the target of investigations by the U.S. Treasury Department and four Congressional committees as a ‘front company for Saddam Hussein.’
“Crescent Petroleum is owned by senior Iraqi military figures” according to a citation in Dr. Christin Marschall Routledge’s (Ph.D. Harvard — History and Middle Eastern Studies) 2003 book “Iran’s Persian Gulf Policy From Khomeini to Khatami.”
The Project Pelican operation succeeded in placing Gulftainer and Dr. Jafar inside the wire at Port Canaveral without the required national security reviews because the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) process was corrupted. CFIUS staff chairperson Aimen Mir at the Treasury Department bypassed the mandated 30 and 45-day national security reviews of the Gulftainer Port Canaveral transaction, allowing the Jafars to fly under the radar of the intelligence community.
In an October 18, 2017 tweet, author James Rickards, former advisor to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) Support Group of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), revealed that “before Uranium One” Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper “disbanded” the CFIUS DNI advisory group.

Russia’s Club-K Container Missile Launch System: An Apocalyptic Threat
A paradigmatic example of the application of Sun Tzu’s principle of deception in warfare, is the Russian-designed WMD delivery system known as the Club-K (Klub-K). Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile launch system, the so-called ‘pandora’s box’ or ‘doomsday box,’ is an apocalyptic needle in a haystack, a modern-day WMD Trojan Horse delivery mechanism controlled via satellite.
U.S. defense experts have stated that the Russians have sold Club-K to Iran and also possibly to North Korea, Venezuela, Malaysia, China, and the UAE. Club-K container cruise missile launchers are designed to look identical to standard ISO intermodal commercial cargo containers, making them extremely difficult to detect and track. Club-K containers can be moved unnoticed throughout the United States aboard ships, riverine boats, rail cars, and flatbed semi-trailers.
Club-K Russian Kalibr-class cruise missiles can carry nuclear, EMP, chemical, biological, or conventional payloads and could deliver instant devastation far beyond anything Americans witnessed during the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 attacks.
The Club-K is a Trojan Horse that hides enemy missiles in order to attack the United States from inside the United States.
The Jafars’ Gulftainer And Club-K Are Linked Through A Joint-Venture With Russia
Gulftainer is in a joint-venture with Russian state-owned ROSTEC, which owns one hundred percent of the shares of ROSOBORONEXPORT, the exporter of the Club-K container missile launch system. ROSTEC markets the Club-K through its weapons export unit ROSOBORONEXPORT. ROSTEC entered into the joint venture with Gulftainer to operate Russian ports infrastructure projects, with Vladimir Putin personally overseeing the signing of the agreement. “As a result, Gulftainer became a co-owner of a terminal at the Ust-Luga port” on the Baltic Sea near St. Petersburg, according to “Russia Beyond the Headlines.”
Club K containers have a shelf life of ten years. Each unit can lay dormant for a decade, until activated.
“There are terminals everywhere, where they can be stored however long it takes” boasted Rostislav Atkov, director for foreign economic activity at Morinformsistema-Agat Concern, the Russian manufacturer of the Club K container missile system. Atkov’s menacing remark about stealth Club-K launchers lying in wait in “terminals everywhere,” translated from Russian, suggests that Russia conceptualizes the Club-K as not just a defensive weapon but also as an offensive system for preemptive attacks. Atkov’s words were picked up by Global intelligence firm Stratfor and subsequently released by Wikileaks. Atkov’s comments from “I Serve Russia” a TV program on Russian Defense Ministry-controlled Zzezda TV.
Gulftainer is “the largest port operator in the Middle East with regards to the number of terminals operated in the region, with the company managing 40 percent of all the major container terminal facilities in the Middle East.”
Dr. Jafar And His Nuclear Weapons Advisor And Accomplice, Russian KGB Chief Yevgeny Primakov, The Architect Of The ‘Islamic Bloc’
Baghdad-born Dr. Jafar began his high energy physics career studying nuclear fission in the Soviet Union after being rejected for a position at his U.K. alma mater the University of Birmingham. He spent decades under the tutelage of Saddam’s Soviet Adviser, KGB General Yevgeny Primakov (a.k.a. Nemchenko) (a.k.a. KGB code-name MAXIM). Dr. Jafar has been working with the KGB and its successor the SVR, for at least 36 years, dating back to at least 1982.
Dr. Jafar proposed to Saddam that Iraq deceptively remain a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to avoid raising suspicion in the West while he was secretly moving Saddam’s nuclear weapons program into new clandestine facilities.
“‘If we walk out now, our enemies will say this is proof of our real intentions. I say we keep them guessing. Better we stay inside and learn how to deceive them’’ Dr. Jafar reportedly told Saddam.
Dr. Jafar turned to the KGB for technical assistance and advice in concealing his rogue nuclear weapons program inside structures that U.S. satellite imagery analysts would not recognize as WMD facilities.
Dr. Jafar used Vietnamese tunnel diggers (who had years of experience digging tunnels for the communist NVA during the Vietnam War) to dig Dr. Jafar’s new underground nuclear WMD facilities.
Kenneth R. Timmerman writes in his book “Shadow Warriors”:
“The debriefings indicated that the underground facilities had been dug by 2,500 Vietnamese laborers during the mid-1980s who toiled for $4 per month,” the former CIA officer said. “They dug at night to avoid infrared signatures. It was all done by drill blast, without heavy machinery.” To the trained eye, these were all telltale signs of Iraq’s intent to camouflage the work from satellite surveillance.
Dr. Jafar would go on to occupy the highest echelons of Saddam Hussein’s brutal regime, relying on his deep understanding of particle physics and his engineering prowess to advise President Hussein on how to unleash the power of science against their shared enemies, the United States and Israel.
Spy master Primakov, also known as the ‘Bear in the Desert,” directed all of the KGB/SVR’s foreign intelligence operations for several years. Virtually single-handedly, Primakov ran Russia’s interests in the Arab World via the KGB’s Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS) and the KGB’s successor the SVR, which Primakov established and directed. Primakov was CIA mole Aldrich Ames’ handler.
Ferociously anti-Semitic and fluent in Arabic, Primakov clandestinely created Russia’s Islamic Bloc of rogue terror-sponsoring Middle Eastern regimes: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Sudan.
With cold calculation, Primakov targeted the poorly-educated Islamic populations of these countries with anti-Semitic propaganda brainwashing. Throughout the Islamic Bloc, Primakov weaponized Islamic extremism against the ‘imperialist’ United States and the ‘Zionist’ Israel, all to Russia’s benefit.
Primakov’s use of the Islamic Bloc and Russia’s so-called ‘War on Terror’ were both contrivances of Soviet/Russian intelligence services and crucial sub-strategies of the KGB/SVR’s long-range ‘Perestroika Deception.’
According to KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn and Christopher Story (former adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher), the Perestroika Deception is a KGB/SVR operation designed and conducted to deceive the United States, the U.K., and NATO into thinking that “the West ‘won the Cold War’, that the enemy ‘disappeared’, that ‘Communism is dead’, that the Soviet Union ‘collapsed’ and that Russia has embarked upon ‘progress towards democracy.’”
The Perestroika Deception and the Islamic Bloc were meant to weaken the U.S. military through endless wars on terror, and to set the stage for Vladimir Putin’s takeover of the Middle East, while U.S. strategic nuclear forces became antiquated.
With the U.S. military mired in Primaokov’s deadly project known as the ‘War on Terror,’ America took its eyes off the mushrooming threat from its old Cold War adversary Russia.
Putin, seeing an opening, rapidly innovated and accelerated Russia’s strategic weapons programs, expanded Russia’s cruise missile arsenal and submarine fleets, and developed new asymmetrical systems like the Club-K. Russia is proliferating these new weapons and tactics across the Axis of Evil as America becomes surrounded by menace.
Former Pentagon nuclear strategist Mark Schneider, commenting on the growing cruise missile threat from Russia, told the “The Washington Free Beacon” that “the Russians are preparing to fight us while we are preparing to fight terrorists.”
Dr. Jafar’s Miniaturized Nuclear Weapon: The Iraqi ‘Beach Ball’
Dr. Jafar, a “Dr. Strangelove who mixes Muslim fatalism, Arab nationalism, and modern technocracy,” executed his most terrifying crowning achievement (perhaps prior to ‘Project Pelican’) with the successful design and production of his super-secret miniaturized nuclear weapon known as the ‘Beach Ball,’ was a worrisome and alarming technical accomplishment.
‘Beach Ball’ was the manifestation of Saddam’s and Dr. Jafar’s dream of creating the first ‘Arab bomb’ and Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball” created a sea change in the Middle East nuclear weapons environment.
According to Al J. Venter’s book “Allah’s Bomb: The Islamic Quest for Nuclear Weapons,” many years after Israeli war planes had bombed Dr. Jafar’s Osirak nuclear reactor during 1981’s Operation Opera Dr. Jafar reportedly bragged about deceiving the West:
Let the Israelis believe they destroyed our nuclear capability. Accept the sympathy offered for this aggression then proceed in secret with an atom bomb program — which is what we did.
America At Risk Of Nuclear Or EMP Attacks: Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ And Russia’s Club-K Mobile ‘Container’ WMD Delivery System — A Marriage Made In Hell
With the arrival of the Club-K, the true scale of the threat from Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ must be recalculated.
The Club-K container system’s stealth WMD delivery capability has exponentially expanded the danger zone from Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball” — it does not cover just Israel and the Middle East anymore but has now expanded to every city in America.
Defense analysts call the arrival of Club-K an asymmetrical “game changer” that has shifted the U.S.-Russia strategic balance of power to Russia’s advantage.
Russia is even equipping its new state-of-the-art arctic icebreakers with Club-K missile systems.
Officials at NORTHCOM/NORAD concede that the United States has no off-the-shelf technical solutions for (i) tracking Club-K units that determined adversaries may have already smuggled into the U.S. or (ii) defending America from surprise Club-K cruise missile attacks, which could include nuclear and EMP attacks.
The coupling of ‘Beach Ball,’ Dr. Jafar, and Gulftainer with the genesis of Russia’s Club-K container missile launch system, and the placement of Dr. Jafar ‘inside the wire’ at Port Canaveral, adds up to a catastrophe in the making.
In 2011, around the same time that Gulftainer was setting up their Ust-Luga port operations, a prototype of the Club-K debuted at the nearby 2011 International Maritime Defence Show in St. Petersburg.
Gulftainer’s Ust-Luga is one of twelve Russian ports where ships carrying nuclear material or products are allowed to dock.
Dr. Jafar Seeks ‘Beach Ball’ Delivery System; North Koreans And Iraqis Met In Damascus For Missile Factory Deal
Because Primakov led the Islamic Bloc — Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Lebanon — it must be understood that Dr. Jafar was not merely Saddam’s rogue nuclear scientist, but was also one of the leading nuclear scientist in Russia’s wider Red-Green alliance, spanning from North Korea to Iran.
Accordingly, it comes as no surprise (i) that Dr. Jafar has worked with the North Koreans since the 1990s seeking a delivery system for ‘Beach Ball,’ (ii) that the Jafars and Crescent are deeply connected to Iran’s brutal regime, (iii) that the Jafars’ Director of Strategic Planning was deeply involved in President Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA P5+1) (the ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’) — working for the Iranian side — (iv) that the Jafars’ employee Siamak Namazi, a former Iranian army officer and Iranian regime government official, became Crescent Petroleum’s Director of Strategic Planning.
Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ Closely Resembles Kim Jung-Un’s North Korean Miniaturized Nuclear Weapon
Dr. Jafar’s Iraqi ‘beach ball’ nuclear bomb bears a striking resemblance to the miniaturized nuclear warhead which North Korea’s ‘Rocket Man’ Kim Jong-un was photographed posing with and ‘hugging’ in propaganda images released by North Korea in 2016.
A U.N. official “holding his arms out in a circle like a man holding a beach ball” described Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ as “about a yard across, weighing about a ton” according to a 1991 first-hand account of a meeting at U.N. headquarters published in “The New York Times Magazine.”
The Wisconsin Project described Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’:
The latest blueprint, according to United Nations inspectors, is of a sphere measuring 32 to 35 inches in diameter with 32 detonators. The bomb would weigh less than a ton and fit on a Scud missile, the weapon Mr. Hussein used in the war to hit Israel and kill American troops.
The ‘Beach Ball’ represents a horrific development. It is, however, made significantly more frightening by its coupling with the stealthy cargo container delivery system.
The Club-K can be launched remotely and provided with target acquisition data from “any coastal, shipborne, aviation, or satellite system,” such as North Korea’s mysterious KMS 3-4 and KMS-4 satellites, currently orbiting over the United States, in a high-tech enemy act of military deception.
Dr. Lajos F. Szaszdi, an expert on the Russian military, reports at the “Daily Signal”:
The Club-K missiles have satellite navigation, which currently would utilize the U.S. GPS and the Russian GLONASS (GPS) systems, and possibly also China’s Beidou 2 system and Europe’s Galileo in the future. According to the Club-K promotional video, targeting coordinates would be provided from space by a satellite, but these could also be supplied by airborne platforms.
Experts such as Dr. Peter Vincent Pry fear that North Korea could use a miniaturized nuclear weapon or a variant — the so-called ‘Super EMP,’ in order to knock out much of the U.S. power grid, plunging America into darkness with disastrous repercussions for the American public.
Wiping out America’s power grid with an EMP is something that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has recently hinted he is prepared to do.
“Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness” North Korea’s official KCNA news agency threatened in a September 2017 statement.
Iran Practicing Launching EMP Attacks From Cargo Freighter Ships
Major General Paul E. Vallely, Chairman of Stand Up America, according to “Townhall,” wrote:
SUA believes strongly that Iran now possesses low yield nuclear warheads that can be mounted on the Shehab missile and deployed on the oceans in container ships with the Russian provided Club K missile launch system…to launch EMP (electromagnetic pulse) weapons on U.S. Coastal cities and freeze our national grid systems.
Not only has Iran reportedly purchased the Club-K, it has been practicing launching EMP attacks from cargo freighters and has deep ties to the Jafar’s cargo container operations.
“The Washington Examiner” reported:
(Dr. Peter Vincent) Pry, president of EMPACT America, one of the nation’s leading authorities on EMP, revealed that Iran recently purchased Russia’s Club-K missile launcher, which can be hidden in tractor-trailer-sized cargo boxes.
“I and my colleagues, including Reza Kahlili, who warned six months ago that these Iranian patrols were coming, think it more likely Iran would make an EMP attack by launching a missile off a freighter, so they could do the deed anonymously, and escape retaliation,” Pry explained…”The Club-K, if armed with a nuclear warhead, could be used to execute an EMP attack.”
Jafar’s Gulftainer Is Majority Owner In GSCCO Consortium With Partner KGL — KGL Was Under FBI And DoD Investigation, Implicated In Laundering Money For Iran
- KGL Executives Secretly Operated Container Ships With Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) Through RAK Shipping
- KGL/RAK Executive Set Up Secret Shore-to-Ship Communication To IRISL-Controlled Ships Via ‘Ghost Email’ System
- KGL Board Members Were Detained At Dulles and SFO Airports, One Was Charged With Undermining US National Security, Selling Aircraft Parts To Iran
When Gulftainer took control of container terminals at three major Saudi Arabian ports by grabbing the helm and the majority equity stake of the renamed Gulf Stevedoring and Contracting Company (GSCCO) the Jafars also became consortium business partners with GSCCO’s co-founders KGL, a Kuwaiti ports company. KGL executives and board members, it had recently been revealed in an American court, were deeply involved in a secret container ship operation with the The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) and were under FBI and DoD investigation for money laundering and sanctions violations.
IRISL was under U.S., EU, and UN sanctions at the time due to IRISL’s history of shipping materials for Iran’s rogue nuclear weapons program. The KGL officials worked closely with a top IRISL executive who was placed under sanctions as a Specially Designated National (SDN) by the U.S. Treasury Department and was separately indicted for conspiracy by U.S. District Attorney Cyrus Vance in Manhattan.
The attention might have been a problem for Gulftainer as it secretly courted first Port Jacksonville (located near Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and Naval Station Mayport), and then Port Canaveral.
Senators Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) demanded answers from Undersecretary of Defense Ashton B. “Ash” Carter as to why KGL has been awarded over $1 billion in Department of Defense contracts.
Under Secretary Carter skirted the truth in a reply letter Senator Kirk by stating that there was “no indication that KGL Holding has violated U.S. law.”
Dr. Jafar’s Company Employs Former Iranian Regime Official (As Its Director Of Strategic Planning) Who Is Also Tied To 33 White House Visits And To Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal
The Jafars’ business interests are not only intertwined with Russia and Russian intelligence services, but also with the terror-sponsoring Iranian regime. The Iranian government has served as a talent pool for key executive posts within the Jafars’ shadowy business empire.
The Jafars turned to a former Iranian army officer and regime official with deep ties to Obama’s ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’ to operate as its Director of Strategic Planning for the Jafars’ Crescent Petroleum.
Siamak Namazi and his Iranian father Baquer Namazi were feeding talking points to Swedish-Iranian operative Trita Parsi. Siamak Namazi’s other contacts include Iran’s UN ambassador and former US Ambassador to the Urkraine William Greene Miller, then-Senator Obama’s backchannel to the Iranian regime.
Ambassador Miller’s mentor Fred Dupee joined the CPUSA and handed out communist literature to the longshoremen’s union in New York City, where Miller grew up. Dupee was a member of CPUSA’s League of American Writers.
MILLER: I also was reading and studying American literature with Fred Dupee. I don’t know if you know that name.
Q: I’ve heard the name.
MILLER: Yes, he was a visiting professor from Columbia. Fred Dupee, became a close friend and was a very important influence.
Ambassador Miller promised the Iranians a better deal than what the Bush administration was offering. This backchannel diplomacy took place in advance of the 2008 presidential election.
Court documents proved through the exposure of Siamek Namazi’s emails that Namazi was giving talking points to Trita Parsi.
In an article titled “Namazi: NIAC Ringleader,” Iran Lobby, a group of pro-America Iranian-Americans whose stated objective is “Exposing the activities of the lobbies and appeasers of the Mullah’s dictatorship ruling Iran,” published and analyzed an email in which Ambassador Miller’s name is mentioned:
(In one of the subpoena’d emails sent by Parsi) Parsi discussed the contents of the minutes from their conference call.
There has been silence since the draft minutes of last week’s telephone conference was sent to the group for your review and approval. I assume everyone has been busy, but it would be good if we could finish the minutes by Tuesday so that we can follow Mr. Ba[qu]er Namazi’s instructions and sen[d] it to Amb. Bill Miller. [emphasis added]
“Iran Lobby” provided an analysis of the email.
The email reveals that Baquer Namazi is the ringleader of the group, giving instructions to Parsi and the others. Parsi is thus working with Namazi, who has close ties to the Iranian regime, and whose family members work for one of the top consulting companies in Tehran with multiple links to government officials and ministries.
The email indicates Parsi also was working with William G. Miller, then an advisor for the Search for Common Ground and a member of the board of the American Iranian Council. He earlier had been a political officer at the US Consulate in Isfahan (1959-62) and Embassy in Tehran (1962-64).
Namazi sent emails to Trita Parsi, his cofounder of NIAC as Parsi visited the Obama White House on 33 occasions in the run up to the Iran Nuclear Deal.
“The Washington Free Beacon” reported:
Sources familiar with the nature of the meetings told the Washington Free Beacon that both Parsi and Mousavian helped the White House craft its pro-Iran messaging and talking points that helped lead to the nuclear agreement with Iran. These efforts were part of a larger pro-Iran deal “echo chamber” led by senior Obama administration officials who were tasked with misleading Congress about the nature of the deal.

Trita Parsi and Siamak Namazi co-founded the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Namazi and Parsi were crafting the Iran Nuclear Deal and heavily lobbying Washington for its implementation. Parsi was photographed meeting with senior Iranian regime officials in Switzerland during negotiations for the Iran Deal.
The Jafars’ Director of Strategic Planning Namazi attended the 2012 World Ports and Trade Summit in the UAE with Gulftainer officials during the secret Project Pelican deal negotiations.
Putin Credits Yevgeny Primakov As First To Propose Iran Nuclear Deal — That Obama Implemented
In 2016 Vladimir Putin credited his KGB mentor Yevgeny Primakov for being one of the first to propose what would become the ‘Iran Nuclear Deal.’
President Putin stated:
Let us recall that Mr. Primakov was one of the first to propose a solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. And all who were involved in resolving this problem know the role the different countries, diplomatic services and intelligence services played in this complex process. We know this role. We are not exaggerating anything here, but the fact remains that Mr. Primakov was one of the first to propose a peaceful solution to the problem.
Pearl Harbor 2: Russia’s Asymetrical Endgame Warfare Strategy – Massive Axis Of Evil Cruise Missile Attacks Against U.S. Using Club-K ‘Containers’ And Submarines
The military deception tactics designed into Russia’s ‘Trojan Horse’ Club-K exemplify the Sun Tzu dictates found in “The Art of War.”
A study of evolving Russian military doctrine reveals that Club-K container cruise missile launchers, smuggled through U.S. ports and armed with Kalibr-class (NATO code-name Sizzler) cruise missiles, could be used in a Pearl Harbor-style attack on U.S. naval forces sitting in port. The Club-K gives “any merchant vessel the capability to wipe out an aircraft carrier.”
These Club-K container cruise missile attacks could be augmented by force-multiplying submarine fleets from (i) Iran (a member of the Islamic Bloc), (ii) from North Korea, Vietnam, and China (members of the Trans-Asian Axis) (iii) and from Russia. These submarines (such as the Russian Akula II class) along with surface warships and merchant ships also carrying Kalibr cruise missiles could result in a massive coordinated surprise cruise missile attack from both off U.S. shores and from within the U.S. interior, including highways, rail lines, and rivers.
A single Club-K with four missiles carrying nuclear or conventional weapons could devastate several U.S. cities. Russia designed its Club-K system container units to be used in large numbers as components of a massive preemptive ‘distributed lethality’ attack against the United States. A coordinated Club-K attack by Russia and its affiliates could immediately limit America’s counter-strike options and capabilities.
The ‘Kalibration’ of the naval forces of Russia and other Axis-of-Evil states including Iran and North Korea is the ‘distributed lethality’ tactic of widely deploying Russian Kalibr cruise missiles aboard axis submarines and hidden in ‘Club-K’ ‘cargo containers’ which can launch Kalibr cruise missiles from ships, riverine boats, rail cars, and semi-trucks inside the United States.
While we focused on CT (counterterrorism) and COIN (counterinsurgencecy) fight, other countries, Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, went to school on us. They closely watched how we fought (in Iraq) in ‘91 and ‘03. They studied our doctrine, our tactics, our equipment, our organization, our training, and our leadership. And in turn, they revised their own doctrines and they are rapidly modernizing their militaries today to avoid our strengths in hopes of defeating us at some point in the future.
Recently a senior Russian official, Ambassador to the United Kingdom Alexander Yakovenko, he said quote… “Russia can now fight a conventional war in Europe and win. Russia is the only country that will remain relevant forever. Any other country is dispensable, and that includes the United States. We are in endgame now” end quote.
Bluster? Hubris? Bravado? Or does he mean what he says. Does he believe it? And more importantly, do the leaders in the Kremlin believe it? Well, history tells us to be careful. It’s always wise to believe foreign leaders’ declaratory policy as most nations tend to telegraph their strategic intentions.
The Russian Defense Journal “Natsionalnaya Oborona” (translation: National Defense) published a paper in 2015 written by Aleksandr Mozgovoy called “RUSSIAN NAVY’S LONG ARM: KALIBR MISSILE FAMILY.” Mozgovoy writes (translated from Russian):
Thanks to the (Kalibr) cruise missiles, nuclear and conventional submarines will no longer have to change ship targets all over the ocean, but strike them in their ports, attacking from long ranges. They can now attack a wide range of land targets and from directions poorly protected by air defenses. This also applies to attacks on surface ships. In the near future, Russian submarines, missile boats, and surface ships will be able to hold at risk all important sites in Europe and in the Middle East. While the nuclear subs will have the US as their potential target…We believe that the idea of placing Kalibrs in standard 40-foot containers (the Kalibr-K system) installed on civilian ships, including riverine ones. Such concealed floating arsenals can operate on seas and rivers unnoticed. Club-S export version is also enjoying success. It has been installed on more than twenty diesel-electric submarines delivered to Algeria, Vietnam, India, and China. Iranian sailors are casting covetous gazes at them.
The West clearly understands the power of the Kalibr system. Not for nothing did they name it the “Sizzler.”
Emergency Exit: Primakov And Russian Special Forces Evacuate Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball’ And Jafar’s Other WMD Programs Out Of Iraq
Primakov helped oversee Russia’s GRU Operation ‘Emergency Exit’ (Russian code-name: Sarandar) that hid Dr. Jafar’s and Saddam’s WMDs by moving them to Syria, Lebanon, and Iran via truck convoys and air cargo operations in early 2003 as the US and coalition military forces prepared to invade Iraq at the onset of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Primakov, with the help of Russian Spetsnaz special operations elite units dressed in civilian clothing to avoid detection by American spy satellites, worked side-by-side with Saddam’s elite Iraqi Special Security Organization (SSO) special operations personnel, to move and hide all traces of ‘Beach Ball’ and other WMD.
A compilation of reports indicated that converted Iraqi Airways Boeing aircraft were used in 56 sorties into Syria (disguised as relief missions for flood victims), truck convoys, refrigerated cargo containers, and Primakov’s own aircraft, to move Iraq’s WMDs into Syria, Lebanon, and Iran.
Former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw, speaking in 2006 at a private ‘Intelligence Summit’ in Virginia said that Saddam’s WMDs “were moved by Russian Spetsnaz (special forces) units out of uniform, that were specifically sent to Iraq to move the weaponry and eradicate any evidence of its existence.”
There Were WMDs In Iraq: The Left Hid It For Political Advantage
Political operatives inside U.S. intelligence, led by CIA Chief of the European division for clandestine operations in the Directorate of Operations Tyler Drumheller, sought to gain political advantage in the 2004 presidential election, by insisting that there were no WMDs in Iraq. In fact there were — a deception which benefited Dr. Jafar, Primakov, Putin, and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad greatly. Drumheller’s wife was working for John Kerry’s presidential campaign. Drumheller threw his country under the bus for political advantage in the upcoming election.
Not everyone bought into Drumheller’s story. Just ask Dave Gaubatz, a civilian US federal agent with the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI), who previously spent 20 years on active duty. Agent Gaubatz was exposed to WMD in Iraq and he has the medical records to prove it.
Agent Gaubatz, highly trained in counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and Arabic linguistics, deployed to Nasiriyah, Iraq in 2003, tasked with looking for WMD. His team, with help from a few local Iraqis who wanted to help America, all risked their lives but succeeded in locating several WMD sites. Mysteriously, the OSI WMD reports that Gaubatz and his team filed were ‘lost’ by OSI and the Department of Defense. By 2006, the WMD sites Gaubatz’s team located had still not been inspected.
Agent Gaubatz returned from Iraq suffering from acute radiation sickness and chemical weapons exposure after his deployment to an Iraqi Air Force base.
Agent Gaubatz wrote in one of his medical reports:
Certain areas of the base had tested above normal for radioactive materials. All personnel in my unit became sick at various time during the deployment at the Iraqi base.
Agent Gaubatz complained of “weakness, muscle aches, headaches, dizziness, difficulty breathing, tired after sleeping, diarrhea, indigestion, vomiting.”
According to the CDC, symptoms of “Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS), or radiation sickness, may include nausea, vomiting, headache, and diarrhea.”
Another former U.S. military member who does not buy Drumheller’s story is former CENTCOM Arabic translator Bill Tierney, who actually listened to audio tapes of Saddam and Dr. Jafar (the so-called ‘Saddam Tapes’) discussing their WMDs and the ways to use them. However, and inexplicably, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte shut down the ‘Saddam Tapes’ program prior to the completion of the review of all of the tapes. Failure to analyze all of the Saddam Tapes leaves vast amounts of intelligence, including additional data on Dr. Jafar and his WMD programs, inaccessible to decision makers.
According to “The Weekly Standard,“ former CIA director George Tenet — who headed the agency under both Clinton and Bush — takes pages in his book “At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA” to call out Drumheller for not telling the truth and dismantle[s] his version of events brick by brick.”
n the political and media environment of ‘Bush Lied, People Died,’ the most dangerous components of Dr. Jafar’s, Saddam’s, and Primakov’s nuclear weapons programs, including ‘Beach Ball,’ vanished in the darkness of night, under remote mountains and rivers, and across the deserts and out-of-the-way settlements of the Middle East.
However, Saddam always had contingency plans to reactivate his nuclear WMD programs in the future, even in the event of the fall of his regime. With the components and CDs of blueprints of “Beach Ball” safely hidden by Dr. Jafar and Primakov’s Russian special operations troops, the potential scourge of ‘Beach Ball’ was never fully taken off the table.
THE PERFECT STORM: TIMELINE
Like Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile launch system,’Project Pelican’ and the ‘Iran Nuclear Deal’ are also examples of the effective application of the principles found in Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War.” Notably, the three parallel operations were concurrently executed.
For many months, the full scope of Iran’s and Russia’s strategic takeover of Iraq, Syria and with a presence not before seen in the the Middle East, made possible by President Obama, his cabinet, certain members of Congress, wealthy foreign-born financiers and businessmen, spies and double-agents operating throughout DC and the intelligence community have become frighteningly and soberingly apparent.
Still unanswered questions about Barack Hussein Obama’s personal background and his 1980s travels to Pakistan are coming back to haunt U.S. national security as names of his former foreign student college roommates (Hamid Wahid and Vinai Thummalapally), several of whom traveled with Obama on a mysterious trip to Pakistan, reappeared in the investigation of the handover of a U.S. port to a company linked to Saddam Hussein’s WMDs, Russia, Iran and Pakistan.
Seemingly disparate chapters in this grand rearrangement of the pieces on the chessboard are, upon closer inspection, parallel operations moving the United States closer and closer to a complete and final intelligence, military, economic, and civilizational defeat, burying the American experiment in democracy and permanently extinguishing any light from the shining city on the hill. The parallel operations are now coming together and on the verge of reaching critical mass.
The withdrawal from Iraq, the murder of American heros at Benghazi, Extortion 17, the Pakistani Awan Brothers Congressional IT spying scandal, and now the Gulftainer Port Canaveral deal are only the visible signs of the iceberg tearing into America’s bow.
Below deck, America’s intelligence secrets have been spilling into the sea. Secret military hardware, communication systems and GPS technology have been handed over to enemies.
One of our most strategic seaports has been given away to the UAE and by proxy to Iraq, Iran, Russia and more. Secret and illegal computer servers and fraudulent email accounts were set up as cyber-Wal-Marts for hostile governments to collect virtually unlimited data and secrets including Special Access Programs (SAP — above top secret) a classification which includes live Intel and silo locations. Interestingly not one single live intelligence operative remained standing in China after 2011.
America is flying blind.
America’s enemies have been elevated, their powers expanded, while America’s reputation was sullied.
For a major WMD commander like Dr. Jafar to emerge from Saddam’s Iraqi regime — the regime that created that threat environment that pulled the U.S. into the Iraq War — and to then gain access to U.S. national security hub Port Canaveral makes it impossible to evade the question any longer: On whose side was Barack Hussein Obama? What else has he done that we do not know about?
The perfect storm did not just happen, it was conceived and created.
