It is clear from a December 11, 2009 e-mail that (Fred) Burton’s source on all the anti-Obama references ascribed to Netanyahu are from Netanyahu himself. The e-mail, referencing Burton’s source, states: “Fred Burton wrote: my source is bb (eyes only).”
However, the most important statement is Burton’s comment, keeping in mind that Netanyahu was passing on to Burton the strategic thinking of Mossad, that “I think they [Mossad] will assassinate A-Dogg. His helo will have a malfunction.”
Burton is a former Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) special agent at the Department of State. From other leaked Stratfor e-mails, Burton, who previously served as the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Assistant Director for Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism and currently serves on Governor Rick Perry’s Texas Border Security Council, is known for making racist references to minorities, including describing Arabs as “towel heads,” “camel jockies,” and “sleezy arsehole ragheads.” Burton has also referred to Pakistanis as “Pakis” and has charged that “black Dems” commit election fraud in the United States and that Obama has a “black thing” going with Nigerian anti-oil drilling activists.
