Wayne Madsen is an excellent DC-based investigative reporter whom we admire, and we have carried many of his stories on RI. You can see the archive here.
An interview with him was published today in Press TV, the state Iranian TV new channel, where he alleged that Graham is being blackmailed.
This is a topic of open speculation due to the Senator's feminine manner, the fact that he has never been married and has no children, and the fact that he is one of the shrillest advocates of pro-Israel positions.
Madsen was discussing the Syria bombings:
“Graham is a well-known neoconservative war hawk. He was hoping obviously that John Bolton, who’s his fellow traveler in neoconservative circles and the new national security adviser, that we would see a more sustained military attack against Syria.”
“What Lindsey Graham wanted to see of course was a US attack on Syrian airfields, infrastructure, the presidential palace, and on the nationals of Russia or Iran or Lebanon, and members of Hezbollah killed. That’s just fine for Lindsey Graham,”
“Lindsey Graham does not care about putting the world on the brink of World War 3. And I think the reason for that is the fact that Lindsey Graham, who comes from a very conservative state, South Carolina, the Israelis have significant blackmail information on Mr. Graham having to do with his homosexual lifestyle,”
