PFB readers will undoubtedly gravitate toward Tom Englehardt’s new book, Shadow Government: Surveillance, Secret Wars, and a Global Security State in a Single-Superpower World.

Tomgram: Engelhardt, Entering the Intelligence Labyrinth
One Caveat:

“Since 9/11 (which might be considered the intelligence equivalent of original sin when it comes to missing the mark), what exactly are the triumphs of a system the likes of which the world has never seen before? “

No, Tom.

He buys into the “intelligence failure” myth of September 11th. There was no failure. There was high treason. That is a very, and categorically, different interpretation of what happened.

Readers here should know two things like the backs of their hands, as I’ve repeated them often enough:

1. “Fifty, five-oh, CIA personnel knew” about the San Diego hijacker cell, straight from the mouth of Richard Clarke. Including George Tenet, the CIA Director. Yet they allowed the attacks to happen.

2. The cover-up of Saudi Arabian government material aid to the hijackers is “aid and comfort” to the enemy, or high treason in the parlance of the US Constitution, which all of  these monkeys take an oath to defend. Protecting Saudis is treason. Case closed. Arrest the president, the former president and their co-conspirators on down.

The “Big Lie,” in the view of Adolf Hitler and friends, was that the lie had to be so audacious and so monumental that regular people could not conceive of telling it themselves.  And here we are.
