Must-read Douglas Valentine interview on CIA criminality.

The CIA: 70 Years of Organized Crime

 

Donohue was a typical first-generation CIA officer. He’d studied Comparative Religion at Columbia and understood symbolic transformation. He was a product and practitioner of Cook County politics who joined the CIA after World War Two when he perceived the Cold War as “a growth industry.” He had been the CIA’s station chief in the Philippines at the end of his career and, when I spoke to him, he was in business with a former Filipino Defense Minister. He was putting his contacts to good use, which is par for the course. It’s how corruption works for senior bureaucrats.

Donohue said the CIA doesn’t do anything unless it meets two criteria. The first criterion is “intelligence potential.” The program must benefit the CIA; maybe it tells them how to overthrow a government, or how to blackmail an official, or where a report is hidden, or how to get an agent across a border. The term “intelligence potential” means it has some use for the CIA. The second criterion is that it can be denied. If they can’t find a way to structure the program or operation so they can deny it, they won’t do it. Plausible denial can be as simple as providing an officer or asset with military cover. Then the CIA can say, “The army did it.”

Plausible denial is all about language. During Senate hearings into CIA assassination plots against Fidel Castro and other foreign leaders, the CIA’s erstwhile deputy director of operations Richard Bissell defined „plausible denial“ as “the use of circumlocution and euphemism in discussions where precise definitions would expose covert actions and bring them to an end.”

So as to 9/11, the CIA claims there were problems with “intelligence sharing.” That is the euphemism they use for hiding multiple Al Qaeda terrorists inside the US from arrest and the exposure of the plot. The circumlocution is passed onto gullible lackeys in the meida, like Ben Norton at Alternet, who faithfully call this deliberate hiding of hijackers “incompteence.” Like a Mighty Wurlitzer, the CIA plays gullible media lackeys to sing their tune and make their crimes go away–even Treason.

House Select Intelligence Committee hearing on "Potential Changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)"

NSA performed warrantless searches on Americans’ calls and emails – Clapper

So yes, Virginia, you do live in an unaccountable police state that can listen to all your private communications without adhering to the law.  And there’s not a God damned thing you can do about it.

  • NSA used ‘back door’ to search Americans’ communications
  • Director of national intelligence confirms use of new legal rule
  • Data collected under ‘Prism’ and ‘Upstream’ programs

 

“These queries were performed pursuant to minimization procedures approved by the Fisa court and consistent with the statute and the fourth amendment.

BULLSHIT.

 

Anyone who can actually read English can deduce that this was illegal:

4th Amendment to the Constitution

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Lock up Clapper, Alexander… Obama.

Washington’s Blog shreds the latest spin, with much about what was known prior to 9/11:

benedict-cumberbatch-plsying-julian-assange

Cumberbatch ignores the criticisms of the script laid out by Assange. Specifically, he avoids addressing whether the script was changed at all from the version Assange had, and what his contribution, if any, was to making script changes. This is dancing around the substance and pushing a lot of PR styled flak in support of the film (hired gun style).

Letter

“The Fifth Estate is a powerful, if dramatized, entry point for a discussion about this extraordinary lurch forward in our society.”

Delusions of grandeur?  An “entry point?”  So people have no idea what Wikileaks is and need his movie to get up to speeed?

The Ten Most Disturbing Things You Should Know About the FBI Since 9/11

 

jwaug16_13

WSJ:

“The NSA is allowed to keep Americans’ information and turn it over to the FBI if it is ‘reasonably believed to contain significant foreign intelligence information,’ ‘evidence of a crime’ or information about communications security vulnerabilities, the documents say. Americans’ communications also can be kept if they are encrypted, according to the documents.”

They have used a deliberate loophole that all communications with foreigners and foreign websites are open season and can be monitored in direct violation of the US Constitution.

“When conducting 702 FISA surveillance, the only information NSA obtains results from the use of specific identifiers (for example email addresses and telephone numbers) used by non-U.S. persons overseas who are believed to possess or receive foreign intelligence information.”

“Intelligence” information is any information.  There is no meaning to the term “intelligence” as used here.  It can be anything.  This is a blanket excuse for running a police state, and is directly in violation of the Constitution when Americans’ personal communications are violated.  Where does it say in the US Constitution – the Supreme Law of the Land – that Americans’ personal communications with any foreigner are to be searched and stored and used against them?

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

-The 4th Amendment (still our Law until further notice)

Beyond this latest NSA admission of widespread tyranny, a variety that the nation’s founders would have revolted over, we know that these so-called “restrictions” are all bullshit.  These are stories to tell little people, underlings, yes-men.

Edward Snowden and Russell Tice exposed the unrestrained and politically-motivated use of this surveillance state.  This is an abomination, and if this government isn’t impeached and jailed, America is over.  Freedom is dead.

NSA / Booz Allen Hamilton whistleblower Edward Snowden:

“Any analyst at any time can target anyone.  …I sitting at my desk certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from YOU or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email.”

NSA Satellite Analyst Russell Tice:

“[NSA] went after lawyers and law firms… They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand… They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House — their own people.”

What really goes on and what the government tells the proles are two entirely different things.

The US military is involved in partnership with Monsanto in CYBER WAR against GMO protesters and independent scientists studying these malignant inventions sold as “food.”

“As revealed yesterday by Sustainable Pulse, on July 13th the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung detailed information on how the US Government “advances the interests of their corporations,” focusing on Monsanto as a prime example.
The report titled, “The Sinister Monsanto Group: ‘Agent Orange’ to Genetically Modified Corn
,” described a ‘new fangled cyber war’ being waged against both eco-activists and independent scientists by supporters and former employees of Monsanto, who are described as “operationally powerful assistants” and who have taken up sometimes high-ranking posts in the US administration, regulatory authorities, and some of whom have connections deep within the military industrial establishment, including the CIA.
Monsanto contacts are known to the notorious former secret service agent Joseph Cofer Black, who helped formulate the law of the jungle in the fight against terrorists and other enemies. He is a specialist on dirty work, a total hardliner. He worked for the CIA for almost three decades, among other things as the head of anti-terroism. He later became vice president of the private security company Blackwater, which sent tens of thousands of soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan under US government orders.
Thanks to Snowden and Wikileaks, the world has a new idea of how these friends and partners operate where power and money are concerned. The whistle-blowing platform published embassy dispatches two years ago, which also included details about Monsanto and genetic engineering.”

Stone apologizes repeatedly for wild NSA claims, taking everything said by the government at face value.  Chris Hedges shows him up.  Stone also has connections to Obama and Obama administration.

Yesterday I pointed out the pathetic progressive method of challenging government criminality by not challenging it.  They beg criminals to be nice on a fairly regular basis.  “Please Mr. Hitler, it’s not nice sending all those people away on cattle cars.  It’s unprecedented.  We’ll still vote for you though, but your unwarranted attacks on our Jewish neighbors doesn’t seem right.

So today, yet another weasel-worded embarrassment to political action, this time from CREDO:

“Tell Eric Holder: Stop your attack on the First Amendment

“The petition reads:

Attorney General Holder: Your department’s seizure of two months worth of the Associated Press’ phone records amounts to nothing less than an unprecedented attack on the First Amendment. But sadly, this indiscriminate surveillance of journalists is part of a larger pattern within your department to go after whistleblowers without consideration of the vital role a free press plays in our democracy.  We join the Associated Press in calling on you to return the records you seized and to destroy any copies you have made. In addition, we call on you to end your dangerous war on whistleblowers.””
