Dershowitz: Anti-Semitic Article Tweeted by Valerie Plame 'Just Like What Was Written in Nazi Germany'
Former CIA operative Valerie Plame has apologized for tweeting an anti-Semitic article that blames “America’s Jews” for the country’s wars.
Her sharing of the Unz Review article, titled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars,” led to outrage on social media.
After the backlash, Wilson said she didn't read the article thoroughly and had only paid attention to its criticism of neoconservatives.
Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz says this story is "much, much worse" than the media has presented it.
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, he said that the author of the article, Philip Giraldi, is a "well-known anti-Semite."
"In this article, he says that Jews like me or Bill Kristol, when we appear on television, should have on the bottom of the screen identification saying we're Jews. And he says it's 'like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison. Ingest at your own peril,'" Dershowitz said.
"All you have to do is read the first couple paragraphs: Jews control the media, Jews control politics," he continued. "This is just like what was written in Nazi Germany."
Dershowitz noted that Plame tweeted another anti-Semitic article by Giraldi in 2014, and he suggested that her social media activity reveals "her real set of beliefs."
"The interesting thing about Twitter, you do it so quickly, it often reflects your real, genuine beliefs. Then you realize what you've said and you say, 'Uh oh. I'm sorry,'" he explained. "Who would believe that a former CIA operative would retweet that and, I believe, endorse it?"
Plame gained fame in 2003 after she was outed in the media as a covert CIA officer, which sparked a well-publicized criminal investigation.
