Is Zbig a LIHOPer?

We highlighted Luke Rudkowski's mau-mauing of Zbigniew Brzezinski earlier in the week; now comes a blog post claiming that Zbig is a LIHOPer:

Brzezinski is reportedly refraining from accusing the administration of actually aiding the Al Qaeda attacks. Instead, sources say, he claims that a "cabal" of high-level officials knew or strongly suspected that a major terrorist attack was likely to occur but did nothing to stop it in order to create a pretext for an endless war abroad and police-state-like powers at home.

I'm always leery of "sources say" when they're being quoted by a mainstream media source; obviously I'm even more skeptical when it's an anonymous blogger. Especially since the blogger does not appear to be a fan of Zbig:

At 79, Brzezinski is no stranger to foreign adventures and intrigue. A veteran Israel-basher, the Polish-born political scientiist was primrily responsible for the Carter administration's pro-Islamist policy--a revamped version of late 19th century British attempts to harness militant, fundamentalist Islam in the Crown's competition with Czarist Russia (known as the Great Game).

But let's recall that it was only a few months ago (PDF file) that Zbig at least implied during a Senate hearing that the US might resort to a false-flag terrorist attack to justify war with Iran:

A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a “defensive” U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Obviously yellow light on this one.
