Richard Perle is a former neoconservative Pentagon policy advisor who was chairman of the Defense Policy Board for 17 years[1].

Career

Perle served as assistant secretary for defense under Ronald Reagan, during which time he was known as "The Prince of Darkness" for his hardline views[2]. Seymour Hersh described Perle as "one of the most outspoken and influential supporters of the war in Iraq [3].

Perle was on the board of Hollinger International who owned The Telegraph and The Spectator, while simultaneously chairing the Defense Policy Board[4]. While Perle was chairing the Defense Policy Board he worked with Devon Cross[5], who sold the Iraq war to the British press (Including The Telegraph and Spectator) in her PR role with the Lincoln Group"[6].

Corruption

In 1970, Perle was an adviser to Senator Henry Jackson. NNDB reports "In 1970, a federal wiretap found Perle discussing classified information with staff at the Israeli embassy. There is no indication he was reprimanded."[7] He may also have passed classified documents to the Israeli Embassy - although reliable documentation on this point is lacking.[8] He has also been identified as implicated by Sibel Edmonds.[9]

Deep political connections

Perle attended Le Cercle together with his aide, Pat Balestreri. Also a member of the Bilderberg steering committee.
