CIA Director Pompeo Admits Convincing Trump Over Disproven Chem Weapons Attack In Syria

“I got a call from the President one afternoon back in April. He wanted to talk about some disturbing images that were coming in from Syria. I’m sure you saw many of them yourselves—scenes of innocent civilians writhing in agony, the apparent victims of a chemical weapons attack.

The President had a very direct message for me: Find out what happened. So we immediately assembled a crack team of Agency experts. They began piecing together the evidence, working closely with some outstanding partners from across the Intelligence Community.

The next day the President called his cabinet together. As we sat down, he turned to me and asked what we had learned. I told him that the IC had concluded that a chemical weapon had indeed been used in the attack, and that it had been launched by the Syrian regime.

The President paused a moment and said: Pompeo, are you sure? I’ll admit that the question took my breath away. But I knew how solid the evidence was, and I was able to look him in the eye and say, Mr. President, we have high confidence in our assessment.

The President never looked back. Based on the Intelligence Community’s judgment, he made one of the most consequential decisions of his young administration, launching a strike against the very airfield where the attack originated.

So I can assure you that when it comes to having the confidence of the Commander in Chief, CIA and the Intelligence Community are in great shape.”

Exit Obama in a Cloud of Disillusion, Delusion and Deceit

CRAIG MURRAY:

William Binney, who was Technical Director at the NSA and actually designed their surveillance capabilities, has advised me by email.

…NSA would have the actual hack on record, would be able to recognise the emails themselves and tell you exactly the second the transmission or transmissions took place and how they were routed. They would be able to give you date, time and IP addresses.

…But the report gives no evidence at all of the alleged successful hack that transmitted these particular emails, nor any evidence of the connection between the hackers and the Russian government, let alone Putin.

…Obama has been a severe disappointment to all progressive thinkers in virtually every possible way. He now goes out of power with absolutely no grace and in a storm of delusion and deceit. His purpose is apparently to weaken Trump politically, but to achieve that at the expense of heightening tensions with Russia to Cold War levels, is shameful.

Joe Giambrone

I’m not only referring to Trump’s tards (as Democrats would have instantly presumed) but to an equally malignant demographic: the smug, arrogant, pseudo-intellectual. These people think they know what they do not know and are thus rendered incapable of thought, incapacitated, intellectually stunted. Those types make great Nazis, in fact, and are arguably half of the voting population.

They are the Peace Laureate’s defenders and cheerleaders, Hillary’s people, corporate comedians like Samantha Bee, Zionists like Bill Maher, listeners of NPR, and readers of Alternet. These lobotomized partisans only oppose war when it is convenient, when a Republican is in office. Not when the warmonger is a Democrat, and that is disgusting hypocrisy. They have pushed the nation toward moral bankruptcy, a rampaging duopoly of blustering hypocrites talking around the crimes. They don’t notice nor even care about the bombs Barack Obama drops, nor the shiploads of arms he sells to the world’s most despicable tyrants.

How to understand such people?

They aren’t lacking in a worldview, and that’s the problem. Ideology supplants honest analysis, full stop. In this case, their only apparent ideology was revealed to be that they believe themselves to be a “lesser evil” than their opponents; that’s all. Clinton offered nothing except that her last name wasn’t Trump.

Constantly reinforced with finely streamlined propaganda that omits damning facts while pretending to investigate, this modern propaganda provides the illusion of knowledge, not the real thing. The model here is the ‘limited hangout.’ The pseudo-intellectual Democrats are permitted to know something about the topics, just enough to be brought to heel. They are manipulated at a slightly higher level than their sworn enemies, the willfully ignorant dumbasses who don’t care. A better brand of puppet is thus manufactured via top-shelf propaganda (CIA, NPR, State Department, NY Times, Washington Post, etc.). Few readers are sophisticated enough to challenge the claims of these organs, and so even nonsense can pass as factual and accurate most of the time—often all that is needed is one unnamed source.

The Putin Ate My Baby

As the alleged “Russian hacking” fiasco has shown, no credible evidence is even required to sell a new Cold War to Americans.

It’s easy to show that most of the coverage of the ‘Russians hacked the DNC’ story is propaganda and not journalism at all. Journalistic ethics require a real journalist to print the other side of the story and to present it to readers so that they can determine for themselves what to believe. Julian Assange and Wikileaks are the other side of that story, and they have been clear and consistent that the files they published weren’t “hacked” at all but leaked by a “disgusted” DNC insider. Any “news” story that omits that crucial part of the narrative is untrustworthy propaganda, the sort you’d expect living in the Soviet Union (ironically).

“Journalists should…

– Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.


– Support the open and civil exchange of views, even views they find repugnant.”
Society of Professional Journalists, Code of Ethics

The complete collapse of journalistic ethics across the spectrum, in the rush to demonize Russia in lockstep with the government, is arguably a far more serious concern than whether some Russian hacker found his way to some emails. The complete brainwashing of a superpower is frightening no matter how it is spun. Anti-Russian hysteria has been the norm as Washington surrounds Russia with NATO bases and destabilizes Russia’s allies, including Ukraine and Syria. These are provocations with body counts. They are not in the interest of the people parroting the official propaganda. The Great Game of imperial one-upsmanship benefits the war industry, not the common people.

It may end life on earth.

Granted, most of the content that western media provides is accurate but incomplete by design. Omission is the staple technique for those who would present biased narratives. At the large daily papers, omission is a high art form.

As the old propaganda system melts down, to much commotion, everyone needs to stay on top of the story. Western media has been exposed as corrupt, untrustworthy, and in a hostile war to influence the public mind.

No one really knows whom to trust anymore. It is a paranoid age, where even your friends lie to you daily by posting nonsensical memes based on no sourcing whatsoever. Laziness is at the heart of the dissemination: convenience culture (a la Idiocracy). No one bothers to check the veracity of their claims, to take responsibility for the information they put out into the world, although this may be turning around among a few.

We must all be journalists and demand corroboration: multiple credible sources. We must all be skeptical of news organizations, all news sources, trusting nothing without a thorough analysis. The specific phrasing matters. We must stop tolerating obvious gibberish, the fake news flooding Facebook that has no redeeming value. Noise drowns out the truth.

Real journalists back up their claims with extensive sourcing. Do you?

Oliver Stone on Snowden relevance: ‘The US government lies all the time’

NBC-Iran-Williams-300x147

 

The professional liar class that creates a delusional America…

globalresearch:

“NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams told viewers on September 27 that Iran was “suddenly claiming they don’t want nuclear weapons.”

Of course that’s been official Iranian policy for a decade, and Williams himself heard the same thing from former president of Iran… twice.

But NBC should know that this isn’t a “sudden” change at all; Iran has sent the same message for years–and it has been reported on NBC Nightly News.”

2006 interview:

“WILLIAMS:  Stop enriching uranium toward weapons.” How do you react?”

“AHMADINEJAD:  We are against the atomic bomb.”

2008 interview:

“AHMADINEJAD: We are not working to manufacture a bomb. We don’t believe in a nuclear bomb. “

Not exactly “sudden” news for NBC to exploit.  This warmongering, imperialist stuffed suit ghoul needs to be removed.  War isn’t fun and games, asshole.

Free Drones!

The “ScanEagle” drone that the US Navy says doesn’t exist:

 

It’s odd how US military organizations choose to routinely lie.  Every airstrike kills “militants” and “terrorists” even the 2 year old variety.  The CIA went to absurd lengths to claim that no civilians had been killed by their drone strikes.  None.  Zero.  Ignore the bodies in the photos.

But now, we evidently have a Drone Free Giveaway Program, some kind of promotion apparently.  Iran has captured a second drone to reverse engineer and study.  It’s okay.  America has infinite money for more weapons and war plans.  Take the drone.  We’ll build more.  It’s what we do.  Take ’em.  Have fun.  Fly it around for the kids.  It doesn’t exist anyway.
