Ghost ship. A ‘ghost’ prisoner’s fate is no better

The CIA versus NSA (Pentagon) internecine war ticks up a notch with CIA presstitute AP snitching out the Pentagon’s torture ‘black sites’ on ships:

“THE SHIPS”

“Several inmates said guards frequently threatened prisoners by saying they would “take them to the ships.”

“Senior U.S. defense officials flatly denied the U.S. military conducts any interrogations of Yemenis on any ships.

“We have no comment on these specific claims,” said Jonathan Liu, a CIA spokesman, adding that any allegations of abuse are taken seriously.

“But a Yemeni officer told AP he had worked on a vessel off the coast where he saw at least two detainees brought for questioning.

“He said the detainees were taken below deck, where he was told American “polygraph experts” and “psychological experts” conducted interrogations. He did not have access to the lower decks and thus had no first-hand information about what happened there. But he said he saw other Americans in uniforms on the ship. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared retaliation for discussing the operations.

“A second Yemeni officer said he was involved in moving detainees to a ship, where he said he saw foreigners though he didn’t know their nationality. “They say these are the important ones. Why are they important? I have no idea,” he said of the detainees.

“A top official in Hadi’s Interior Ministry and a senior military official in the 1st Military District, based in Hadramawt, also contended that Americans were conducting interrogations at sea, as did a former senior security official in Hadramawt. The three men spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to share military information”

No doubt the American public will see this as some revelation but actually this old news:

Black_site_ships - 1

Obama didn’t actually close down black site prisons, he merely relocated them to preexisting black site ships run by the military. This (above screenshot) article is from 2010:

“U.S. PRISON SHIPS: On June 2, 2008 UK’s Guardian reported, “The US has admitted that the Bataan and Peleliu were used as prison ships between December 2001 and January 2002”. According to Reprieve, the U.S. may have used 17 ships as “floating prisons” since 2001. Detainees are interrogated on ships and may be rendered to other, undisclosed locations. Reprieve expressed concern over the time the U.S.S. Ashland spent off Somalia in early 2007. According to The Guardian, “At this time many people were abducted by Somali, Kenyan and Ethiopian forces in a systematic operation involving regular interrogations by individuals believed to be members of the FBI and CIA. Ultimately more than 100 individuals were ‘disappeared’ to prisons in locations including Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Guantanamo Bay. Reprieve believes prisoners may have also been held for interrogation on the USS Ashland and other ships in the Gulf of Aden during this time.”

The U.S. Navy, through a spokesman, said, “There are no detention facilities on US navy ships” but Commander Jeffrey Gordon told The Guardian some individuals had been put on ships “for a few days” during initial days of detention.

Reprieve quoted one prisoner released from Guantanamo who was on one of the U.S. ships who said there were 50 other prisoners in cages in the bottom of the ship and they were beaten even more severely than in Guantanamo. Clive Stafford Smith, Reprieve’s legal director, is quoted as saying, “They choose ships to try to keep their misconduct as far as possible from the prying eyes of the media and lawyers. We will eventually reunite these ghost prisoners with their legal rights”

Well, good luck with ‘reuniting’ those ‘ghost’ prisoners with their families, recalling it was Henry Kissinger mentored the South American military strongmen who ‘disappeared’ tens of thousands of ‘suspected’ leftists. The relevance? Multiple tens of thousands of ‘ghost’ prisoners remain unaccounted for, of the estimated 100,000 or so ‘renditioned’ prisoners directly related to the USA’s war on terror. The real news is, it would appear those prisoners who aren’t ‘outsourced’ but meet ‘importance’ criteria enough to be sent to ‘The Ships” are disappeared and don’t come back. How many? This, on top of renditions math that doesn’t add up, the ‘lie by omission’ the AP is never going to admit (if only because it gets sticky, in that case, for the CIA, not only the Pentagon.) Adding ‘The Ships’ to the known CIA renditions flights, we ALL can know the Feinstein torture investigation had been little more than a whitewash.

Here’s my article on the renditions math from December, 2014:

122 KNOWN aircraft were used in renditions within a database of 11,000 flights (by those aircraft) during the known period of renditions. With 119 ‘detained suspects’ acknowledged in Feinstein’s ‘torture report’, the first problem we see is, there are more planes known to have renditioned people than the ‘torture report’ admits had been renditioned. Ignoring the idea the CIA had required use of a separate plane for each rendition (+3 planes), the initial math comes out to 92 flights per prisoner. Let’s toss 1/2 the flights and we have 46 flights per prisoner. Let’s toss 1/2 the flights again, and we have 23 flights per prisoner. Ok, so now we’ve thrown out 75% of the flights by known renditions aircraft and that works out to 25% of the flights would amount to renditions of 2,750 prisoners. So, let’s cut that by half again; if 12.5% of the known flights were renditions, there would be 1,375 kidnapped and or captured persons flown by the CIA. Cut in half again, to 6.25% of flights by planes known to fly renditions, and we should have 688 involuntary ‘transportees.’ If 3% of the flights by KNOWN renditions aircraft, were transporting ONE prisoner each, depending on number of stops, we’d still have up to 344 people (versus Feinstein’s 119), relating to the CIA renditions.

The disparity of the math is too great to give any sense of  credibility or reliability to the Feinstein report. And there is no present way of determining whether flights ‘disappearing’ people (dumped at sea) had been employed in the (CIA supported) Latin America junta style.

Now, it stands to reason we don’t have close to all of the planes and flights identified because many of them would have been military. As well, we know the American military has not been even close to fully probed over its own ‘black site’ torture centers, this documentary film’s existence (suppressed in American media) is a singular example:

How many people are missing? We’ll never know so long as the people perpetrating the crimes (CIA-U.S. military) are the people providing access to the information, such as the CIA had in the case of the Feinstein probe. The Feinstein ‘torture report’ can be little more than a ‘we’ll acknowledge as little as possible’ white-wash or professional psychological operation employed for purpose of damage control.

There needs to be an authentic accounting. Most or nearly all flights that weren’t to ‘black sites’ were likely military flights to, examples given, Bagram and Guantanamo. The point of using civilian jets together with filing false flight plans is to cover criminal activity such as kidnap renditions. A civilian jet points to a kidnap rendition or less often, someone handed over by a 3rd party, for instance Pakistan, as opposed to a battlefield capture. What are the structures? Aside from inferred CIA black sites in the  Senate report identified from other sources (Poland, Romania et al) it is known prisoners were delivered for torture to 3d party nations Morocco, Jordan, Syria, Egypt and Libya, there was a ‘black site’ under military control at Bagram and there well may have been a ‘black site’ at Guantanamo separate from the regular detention facility, not to mention strong indicators pointing to Diego Garcia. As well, I’ve seen reports Special Forces in Afghanistan, working with CIA, had numerous small (off record) detention facilities in remote areas where prisoners had been shell-gamed to evade rules, and reports of black site jails on U.S. navy ships. Also there are indications renditions had been reduced in favor of stepped up assassinations under Obama. The subject of renditions is a longs ways from broken open in any sense of reality.

And there is a large question yet looms .. ‘what had been the fate of the women prisoners’ ?

Another installment on why this blog has a specific category for ‘morons.’ In short, following on week one’s notes, it turns out the nominal hedge-fund ‘Blackstone’ will be the Saudi partner in Trump’s USA infrastructure development initiative. Who is Blackstone?

Blackstone, among other things, profiles as an umbrella for laundering intelligence agencies black-ops; associated with two notable ‘principals’, the supposedly ‘former’ spooks  (once CIA, always CIA), Frank Carlucci and Richard Armitage.

Frank_Carlucci_official_portrait

Frank ‘the capo’ Carlucci

Carlucci, the Princeton roommate of Donald Rumsfeld, was a CIA officer under cover as the US Embassy’s Second Secretary in Congo when Patrice Lumumba was assassinated:

“[CIA Station Chief] Devlin and Carlucci worked together “on Congolese efforts to get rid of Lumumba.” De Witte further commented: “We know that Devlin and other US personnel in the capital were informed about the transfer of Lumumba to the Kasai or Katanga… Everybody knew that there were waiting some subcontractors to do the dirty job, and, given the rank and involvement of Carlucci in Lumumba-related activities from the US embassy, we may assume (although it’s not proven) that Carlucci knew of what equaled a death sentence for Lumumba””

Beyond this immediate preceding, what does it say to you about Carlucci’s work in Congo when CIA officer John Stockwell states the CIA had custody of Lumumba’s body immediately following his assassination? Carlucci went on to have his fingers in numerous CIA related murderous geopolitical pies as he rose through the hierarchy to become Ronald  Reagan’s Secretary of Defense, left government  due to Iran-Contra and immediately joined Blackstone (Carlucci profiles throughout his career as a close CIA colleague of George H.W. Bush who coordinated ‘The Enterprise‘ or the Coe cult‘s government penetration project.)

Richard ‘the maggot’ Armitage

Armitage is just as smelly or worse. Fingered as a CIA international narcotics trafficker from the source…

Mister Richard Armitage, Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, is one of those USG officials implicated by [longtime warlord/opium producer/CIA ally] Khun Sa”

…complicit in the annual export of 900 or more tons of heroin precursor (opium) from the ‘Golden Triangle’ of which both Harry Reid and George H.W. Bush were informed, of course nothing is done, no one (ever) goes to jail. They just go on to lucrative (CIA sponsored) private careers.

Armitage, in short, from his early days as a CIA officer, went on to become the party responsible for issuing 15 (all to Saudis) of the 19 alleged 9/11 hijackers USA entry visas according to former Department of State officer Michael Springmann. Previous to this, Armitage had served a stint with the CIA-Special Forces joint venture Phoenix Program, which ties to Daniel Ellsberg’s narcotics trafficking associates in Vietnam, notably the CIA’s Ted Shackley, in charge of the opium producing Golden Triangle region or ‘off record’ war exterior to the Vietnam ‘official’ war zone, and Ellsberg’s boss Edward Lansdale, mastermind of Phoenix. Phoenix was an assassination program responsible for the murders of up to 50,000 non-combatants. Shackley would go on to become the CIA Chief of Station in Saigon.

Where this background ties together for Armitage & Carlucci (as well as G.H.W. Bush & Bill Clinton in CIA black budget program importing narcotics at Mena, Arkansas) is in the Iran-Contra narcotics trafficking where Iran-Contra’s General Richard Secord, who profiles as a career CIA officer under military cover, had been running Khun Sa’s opium out of the golden triangle during the USA’s Indochina wars (Ted Shackley era.)

It was rogue Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben Menache best blew the whistle (eye-witness) on international narcotics trafficking integrated to the Iran Contra business, not only (the murdered) Gary Webb (Superman could shoot himself in the head TWICE, ordinary mortals don’t.)

The preceding thumbnail assessments of people who have no qualms murdering en mass, whether directly or indirectly, point to a remarkably dangerous prognosis; Jared Kushner leveraging a Blackstone-Saudi deal for reconstruction of the USA’s infrastructure points to MOSSAD-Saudi-Enterprise (Coe cult) preparing a reprise of 9/11. When the moron Trump is ‘safely’ out of the picture, look for the upcoming Gladio style false-flag mega-event enabling the Mike Pence aligned generals dictating every aspect of American ‘security.’ Meanwhile, don’t expect al-Qaida to be the boogyman this time around; look for blame pinned on Russians via Iran.

1 February 1988

Honorable George Bush, Vice President, United States of America, Washington, D.C.

Sir:

Why does it seem that you are saying “YES” to illegal narcotics in America?

I turned over video tapes to your NSC staff assistant, Tom Harvey, January 1987, wherein General KHUN SA, overlord of Asia’s “Golden Triangle”, offered to stop 900 tons of heroin/opium from entering the free world in 1987. Harvey told me, “…there is no interest here in doing that.” General Khun Sa also offered to identify U.S. Government officials who, he says, have been trafficking in heroin for more than 20 years.

November 1986, Scott Weekly and I went into Burma in coordination and cooperation with The White House. Tom Harvey told me you received a letter from Arthur Suchesk, Orange County, CA, dated 29 August 1986. Dr. Suchesk said that Gen Khun Sa had access to U.S. POWs. Harvey said the letter had received “highest attention”. He gave me a copy along with other case documents. I was asked if it was possible to verify the information. According to Harvey, the CIA said Khun Sa had been assassinated some months before. Harvey supplied Scott and myself with language under White House and NSC letterhead that would help us gain access to Khun Sa. It worked. Unfortunately, Khun Sa knew nothing about US POWs. He did, however, offer to trade his nation’s poppy dependence for a legitimate economy.

Instead of receiving an “Atta Boy” for bringing back video tape showing Khun Sa`s offer to stop 900 tons of illegal narcotics and expose dirty USG officials, Scott was jailed and I was threatened. I was told that if I didn’t “erase and forget” all that we had discovered, I would, “hurt the government”. Further, I was promised a prison sentence of “15 years”.

I returned to Burma with two other American witnesses, Lance Trimmer, a private detective from San Francisco, and Barry Flynn from Boston. Gen Khun Sa identified some of those in government service he says were dealing in heroin and arms sales. We video taped this second interview and I turned copies over in June 1987, to the Chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence; Chairman of the House on Foreign Affairs Task Force on Narcotics Control; Co-Chairman, Senate Narcotics Committee; Senator Harry Reid, NV; Representative James Bilbray, NV; and other Congressional members. Mister Richard Armitage, Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, is one of those USG officials implicated by Khun Sa. Nothing was done with this evidence that indicated that anyone of authority, including yourself, had intended to do anything more than protect Mr. Armitage. I was charged with “Misuse of Passport”. Seems that it is alright for Oliver North and Robert MacFarlane to go into Iran on Irish Passports to negotiate an illegal arms deal that neither you nor anyone else admits condoning, but I can’t use a passport that brings back drug information against your friends.

Lance Trimmer and I submitted a “Citizen Complaint of Wrongdoing by Federal Officers” to Attorney General Edwin Meese, III on 17 September 1987. Continuous private and Legislative inquiries to date indicate that the Attorney General’s Office has “lost” the document. Congressional requests to the Government Accounting Office have resulted in additional government snares and stalls.

January 20, 1988, I talked before your Breakfast Club in Houston, Texas. A distinguished group of approximately 125 associates of yours, including the Chief Justice of the Texas Supreme Court, expressed assurance that you are a righteous man. Almost all of them raised their hand when I asked how many of them know you personally. If you are a man with good intent, I pray you will do more than respond to this letter. I ask that you seriously look into the possibility that political appointees close to you are guilty of by passing our Constitutional process, and for purposes of promoting illegal covert operations, conspired in the trafficking of narcotics and arms.

Please answer why a respected American Citizen like Mister H. Ross Perot can bring you a pile of evidence of wrongdoing by Armitage and others, and you, according to TIME magazine (May 4, page 18), not only offer him no support, but have your Secretary of Defense, Frank Carlucci tell Mr. Perot to “stop pursuing Mr. Armitage”. Why Sir, will you not look into affidavits gathered by The Christic Institute (Washington, D.C.), which testify that Armitage not only trafficked in heroin, but did so under the guise of an officer charged with bringing home our POWs. If the charges are true, Armitage, who is still responsible for POW recovery as your Assistant Secretary of Defense ISA, has every reason not to want these heros returned to us alive. Clearly, follow on investigations would illuminate the collective crimes of Armitage and others.

Several years ago a secretary working for Armitage asked me “Why would he have us expunge his official record of all reference to past POW/MIA assignments and activities?” Not knowing, I ventured a guess that maybe he was considering running for public office and didn’t feel the POW -Vietnam association would be a plus in his resume. It was about the same time a CIA agent named by Khun Sa turned up dead in Bangkok under “mysterious circumstances”. Also about this time, as an agent of NSC’s Intelligence Support Activity, I was told by ISA Chief Jerry King, “…there are still too many bureaucrats in Washington who don’t want to see POWs returned alive”. I failed to realize the fullness of his meaning, or these other events, until in May 1987, Gen Khun Sa, in his jungle headquarters, named Richard Armitage as a key connection in a ring of heroin trafficking mobsters and USG officials. A U.S. agent I have known for many years stopped by my home last month enroute to his next overseas assignment. He remarked that he had worked for those CIA chiefs named by Khun Sa, and that by his own personal knowledge, he knew what Khun Sa said was true. He was surprised it had taken so long to surface.

I am a registered Republican. I voted for you twice. I will not do so again. If you have any love or loyalty in your heart for this nation; if you have not completely sold out, then do something positive to determine the truth of these most serious allegations. You were Director of the CIA in 1975, during a time Khun Sa says Armitage and CIA officials were trafficking in heroin. As Director of Intelligence you were responsible to the American people for the activities of your assistant – even as you should know what some of these same people are doing who are close to you now as our Vice President because I feel these “parallel government” types will only be promoted by you, giving them more reason to bury our POWs.

I am enclosing some documentation that supports the charges made. Chief is a letter from Khun Sa to the U.S. Justice Department dated 28 June 1987, wherein Richard Armitage is named along with Theodore Shackley (your former Deputy Director CIA from Covert Operations) and others. Please also note William Stevenson’s article, “Bank of Intrigue-Circles of Power”. You, Armitage, and General Richard Secord are prominently mentioned. Stevenson, you might remember, authored A MAN CALLED INTREPID. Also Tom Fitzpatrick’s article, “From Burma to Bush, a Heroin Highway”, should interest you. Both of these men are prize winning journalists. The book, CRIMES of PATRIOTS, “A True Tale of Dope, Dirty Money, and the CIA”, by Jonathan Kwitny, reporter for the Wall Street Journal, details for you the bank connections that Khun Sa mentions. Finally, the basic primer that spells out exactly how this dope for covert operations gambit began, is Alfred McCoy’s THE POLITICS OF HEROIN IN SOUTHEAST ASIA. All of these should be required reading for the man appointed chief cop by our President to safeguard America from illegal narcotics. These are just a sampling of many works now available that chronical disgraceful conduct by those sworn to protect and defend our Constitution.

Parting shot Mr. Vice President: On 28 January 1988, General Khun Sa tendered an offer to turn over to me one metric ton (2,200 pounds) of heroin. He says this is a good faith gesture to the American people that he is serious about stopping all drugs coming from the infamous Golden Triangle. I, you and Nancy Reagan are really serious about saying “NO” to drugs, why not test Gen Khun Sa? I challenge you to allow me in the company of agents of your choice to arrange to receive this token offer worth over $4 billion on the streets of New York City. It will represent the largest “legal” seizure of heroin on record. You can personally torch it, dump it in the ocean, or turn it into legal medication; as I understand there is a great shortage of legal opiates available to our doctors. I think Gen Khun Sa’s offer is most interesting. If you say “YES” then the ever increasing flow of heroin from Southeast Asia (600– tons– ’86, 900 tons– ’87, 1200– tons’88) may dry up–not good for business in the parallel government and super CIA circles Oliver North mentioned. If you say “NO” to Khun Sa, you are showing colors not fit for a man who would be President.

What is your decision? I challenge you to demonstrate exactly where you stand with respect to big-business-drugs, parallel government, misuse of U.S. tax-payer dollars in foreign drug supression programs that don’t work, no interest in dialogue that will stem the flow of illegal narcotics, return of POWs while they are still alive? I for one am not for a “USA, Inc.” with you or anyone else as Chairman of the Board.

Respecting Your Office,

James “Bo” Gritz

Note on the preceding 1988 letter of (the much maligned) Bo Gritz to George H.W. Bush concerning narcotics trafficking: Having personally witnessed CIA (via Air America) deliver large quantities of heroin to American military headquarters (on more than one occasion) at Vung Tau, Vietnam, in 1971, Gritz’s letter would appear to describe authentic facts on its’ face. That I had been mentored in my brief (1974-1975) but eye-opening military intelligence position by Special Forces veterans of CIA operations in Indochina and Latin America only adds to my conviction Gritz is giving accurate information. On top of this, Gritz’s narrative lines up with numerous sources over a several decades period of subsequent assessments.

Note 2: Having seen zoomed in footage of the 2nd plane hitting the WTC ‘twin towers’, I can state with confidence that particular plane was not the plane ascribed by media as hijacked; it clearly appeared to be a cargo model dressed up (painted) to look like a passenger jet from distance. Very unusual, the plane had some sort of pod attached to the right side of the under fuselage, something I’d never seen before (or since) on any commercial jet.

What became of the actual planes and those persons on those so-called ‘hijacked’ planes of 11 September 2001 is a mystery to me (however Area 51 comes to mind.) Footnoting all of this would be the thought ‘the enterprise’ (Coe cult) member Ted Olsen must’ve seriously wanted rid of his wife.

Note 3: Trump is surrounded by so many connected, complicit, treasonous players, including people in his business empire and in-laws, not only the Pence faction in the executive branch, it would appear Trump, his family and his entire business operation had been targeted by intelligence agencies for quite a long time.

The CIA’s Amazon Books (or how to own a billionaire)

So, how is it a ‘kindle’ e-book detailing the history of a contemporary era CIA assassin is ‘out of print’ at amazon books? Can virtual reality actually have a paper supply problem? Or is it because Jeff Bezos’ amazon (Bezos is amazon’s largest stock-holder & CEO) has a $600,000,000 (six-hundred-million) contract supplying the CIA with ‘cloud’ services?

Small wonder Bezos’ Washington Post is recently the CIA’s preferred street-walker for planting fake news stories even as it had shrieked over ‘fake news.’ Now, going to the banned-at-amazon book:

‘How to Get Away with Murder in America: Drug Lords, Dirty Pols, Obsessed Cops, and the Quiet Man Who Became the CIA’s Master Killer’

Enrique_Prado - 1

^ Enrique Prado (he would be older now, perhaps 60+)

“This is a story that the CIA will not want you to read. It will likely shake your faith in the highest levels of America’s national security establishment. And it will leave you feeling as if you are living not in the United States but in a seedy banana republic where there is no line between the good guys and the bad guys.

“In “How to Get Away with Murder in America,” the celebrated journalist Evan Wright reveals the extraordinary story of Enrique “Ricky” Prado, an alleged killer for a major Miami drug trafficker who was recruited into the CIA. Despite a grand jury subpoena and a mountain of evidence unearthed by a federal task force, Prado was promoted into the agency’s highest echelons and charged with implementing some of the country’s most sensitive post-9/11 counterterrorist operations, including the agency’s secret “targeted assassination unit.” All while staying in close touch with his cocaine-trafficking boss and, evidence suggests, taking part in additional killings for him.

“After Prado retired in 2004 at the rank of SIS-2—the CIA equivalent of a two-star general—he moved to a senior position at Blackwater, the private military contractor, where he continued to run the same, now-outsourced “death squad.” Contrary to government assurances that it was never actually activated, Wright reveals explosive testimony from one of the Blackwater assassins that Prado’s unit was indeed carrying out assigned killings. As a former military intelligence officer told Wright in 2011, “Private contractors are whacking people like crazy over in Afghanistan for the CIA.”

“In “How to Get Away with Murder in America,” Wright discloses never-before-seen federal investigation files and lays out a mind-boggling and ultimately damning indictment of Ricky Prado and the intelligence community that embraced and empowered him. It is the deeply disturbing story of a criminal case abandoned because of CIA intervention, political maneuvering, and possibly corruption. Its cast includes Mafia capos, former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, former CNN host Rick Sanchez, and Prado’s longtime boss at the CIA and then Blackwater, J. Cofer Black, who is now a “special adviser” to presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Wright also delivers a stunning portrait of Prado’s childhood friend Albert San Pedro, a.k.a. “the Maniac,” the drug lord whom he served for years as loyal bodyguard and enforcer, as well as their longtime nemesis Mike Fisten, the detective who began pursuing them more than two decades ago and still hopes to put them both in prison for murder.

“There are many conspiracies in Wright’s story, all of them unsettling. Did the CIA knowingly hire a suspected murderer with strong ties to drug traffickers? Or was the agency a stooge, infiltrated by an underworld hood described by one investigator as “technically, a serial killer”?

“How to Get Away with Murder in America” is likely to have serious repercussions for the U.S. national security establishment. And it will shake to the core your conceptions of government and justice in America”

Sure it could have “serious repercussions” if it were available. The book was offered for sale at amazon in 2012. Bezos picked up the 600 million ‘private cloud services’ contract with the CIA in 2013:

“Professor Robert McChesney, who has published books dealing with conflicts of interest in the media, for example, also blasted the links. “When the main shareholder in one of the very largest corporations in the world benefits from a massive contract with the CIA on the one hand, and that same billionaire owns the Washington Post on the other hand, there are serious problems””

No shit, Sherlock. And serious problems at amazon. After all, when the CIA comes calling, Bezos wouldn’t want things going wrong and a last sight of Enrique Prado’s silenced pistol presented in a follow-up visit:

“When best-selling author Evan Wright began digging into the hard-to-believe life story of Enrique “Ricky” Prado–a former Miami thug who became a top CIA official–he was told to stay away or risk getting “whacked.” One investigator warned, “You don’t want to f— with this guy.” Wright first learned about Prado while researching American Desperado, his shockingly good book about drug trafficker Jon Roberts. At first, he refused to believe that an alleged hitman and bodyguard for a mobster could become a CIA informant and eventually rise to the top echelons of the U.S. national security and intelligence systems. In this riveting account, Wright says the “two halves of Prado’s life…made no sense.” But through dozens of interviews and thousands of documents, Wright tries to make sense of them. The result is a story of two fiercely loyal Cuban-American childhood pals–Prado and his former cocaine-running boss, Albert “the Maniac” San Pedro–whose kinship lasted throughout Prado’s CIA career. Even as Prado rose to the CIA equivalent of a two-star general, he helped San Pedro with numerous deadly deeds. This is investigative journalism at its best—brave, meticulous, and significant” -Neal Thompson

The CIA’s concubine, Associated Press, has run an article on Iranian musician Shahin Najafi, picked up by the CIA’s favorite street hooker, The Washington Post, describing a Tel Aviv concert where an Iranian dissident teamed up with an Israeli dissident; in a concert undermining the deliberately cultivated, political poison practiced on all parties part, Iran, Israel and the USA.

With an Iranian ‘fatwa’ hanging over his head, Shahin Najafi should now understand he has made himself the target of not only Iran’s secret service but has just put a bull’s eye on his back for MOSSAD & CIA as well. How is that? We’ll go there but first:

The Assassins

This next, however mere supposition, is a valid line of inquiry; as too many Russian diplomats have been dropping dead in recent months. But these are the obvious in circumstance where the rogue intelligence agency has taken off the gloves and will resort to anything goes. Here, it is the less obvious proposed as numbers one & two on the CIA’s assassinations ‘laundry list’

Boris Nemtsov posed precisely ZERO political threat to Putin. Realizing this, one can only wonder whether the murderous spooks at Langley had decided Nemtsov was more valuable dead, with his death pinned on Putin, than Nemtsov would ever be effective alive. Demonizing the ‘thug’ and ‘killer’ Putin has been the high sport of the USA’s CIA bed-partner, the Western press. Which brings up this next:

Kim Jong-nam was even less threat to Kim Jong-un, and possessed sub-zero value while alive, to the CIA; he wasn’t political, kept a low profile and for the most part, entirely minded his own business. But a deliberately sloppy assassination, by default pinned on the crude by nature North Korean state, would see a priceless propaganda return, for pennies on the investment in Kim Jong-nam’s murder. This post is not the only source taking this line; as we’ve discovered  concurrently published investigation following the assassins tracks to South Korea (they should look for further tracks to the CIA’s chief of stations in Tokyo & Seoul.)

Next Up?

Following on the CIA co-opted American media making a big story of Shahin Najafi’s dissident art, a MOSSAD or CIA hit on Shahin Najafi would make perfect sense. Not only for the immense propaganda value that should come with framing Iran for a hit Iran’s ayatollahs had pre-positioned themselves to receive blame for, but would remove a pro-peace, counter-propaganda irritant for the deep state behind both MOSSAD and CIA.

Watch Your Back Closely Shahin Najafi, because any naïf who’d believe the CIA doesn’t employ professional killers (CIA assassination most definitely isn’t all about drones) should have a read about Enrique Prado:

“Enrique “Ricky” Prado’s resume reads like the ultimate CIA officer: veteran of the Central American wars, running the CIA’s operations in Korea [bold mine, RTW], a top spy in America’s espionage programs against China, and deputy to counter-terrorist chief Cofer Black — and then a stint at Blackwater. But he’s also alleged to have started out a career as a hitman for a notorious Miami mobster, and kept working for the mob even after joining the CIA”

The Poisonous Toad

A creation of the social sciences laboratory at Langley, Virginia, there is a poisonous toad in the field, perhaps comparable to a bt toxin genetically engineered into an otherwise clean crop, could be the metaphor. Prior to the CIA metastasizing a Salifist cancer via the fundamentalist Wahabi Saudi Arabia, and the creation of al Qaida when sponsoring Jihadis to drive the Soviets out of Afghanistan, Sufi influenced Islam had been a quiet, hospitable, moderate and stabilising force throughout much of the Islamic world. The lab techs at Langley couldn’t have messed this up any better than a social-science-fiction horror movie. They wrote the script something like this:

Following on dumping many hundreds of millions of dollars into paying, feeding, arming and otherwise supplying the many thousands of Arab & other volunteer ‘Afghani jihadis’ who were motivated via radical Saudi Imams as ‘holy warriors’, the CIA initially abandoned these thoroughly radicalized, but now unemployed, Salafist militia. At loose ends, some of them hooked up in Somalia and brought a ‘Blackhawk Down.’ At least that’s the partial truth and ‘alternative’ line Langley would have you believe, in the day and age where any curious person can sort the CIA was responsible for the birth of al Qaida; the Afgan-Frankenstein brain child of Zbigniew Brzezinski midwifed into existence by George H.W. Bush and Robert Gates in the 1980s. But in actuality, many of these fighters found continued employ in the ‘clandestine’ service of the USA; as many now perfectly Russian hating jihadis were funneled off to Central Asia, the Russian Caucasus, and so far as Western China, to terrorize and destabilize the entire region on behalf of the usual suspects; western big oil corporations and the armaments industry they employ in the attempted strong-arm robbery of nations. The vehicle utilized to coordinate this? A socially illiterate, poisonous toad.

Where would the CIA’s Robert Gates’ lieutenant & Central Asia hit man, Graham Fuller,  insert a poisonous toad? Amphibians require a clean environment, and Sufism was the cleanest environment in Islam:

“To Sufis, the outer law consists of rules pertaining to worship, transactions, marriage, judicial rulings, and criminal law—what is often referred to, broadly, as “qanun”. The inner law of Sufism consists of rules about repentance from sin, the purging of contemptible qualities and evil traits of character, and adornment with virtues and good character”

In other words, the ‘inner law’ of the Sufis could be (and has been) described as ‘waging Jihad on all that is inferior in the self.’ A Sufi centered community would be the location you would find the least corrupt and least corruptible persons in Islam. A perfect cover for CIA social scientists wishing to further pursue world class crimes.

The logic must go something like this; having morphed much of the Arab and larger Islamic world into victims of the ultra-radicalized Salafi sect or offshoot of medieval Wahabi Islam centered in Saudi Arabia, where people are executed for so much as possession of new age literature and method of execution can include crucifixion, it would seem the CIA needs to come up with a project to ‘moderate’ Islam into a ‘kinder, gentler world.’ But because this is CIA, that ‘kinder, gentler world’ should also be a vehicle to further the interests of its corporate sponsors.

The answer? Build a world-class, private schools system, costing billions, spanning the globe, where Sufism is the underlying philosophy and place an educated to 5th grade CIA asset who is dirty as sin, but eloquent and nominally Sufi, in place as a figurehead. This toad (a bigger fraud than L Ron Hubbard) will do whatever he’s told to do, because he is not competent to chew gum and tie his shoes, let alone run the logistics of this thing. Then, after having attracted sincere Sufi talent to staff these schools across much of the non-Arab Islamic world, use the entirety of this vast system to provide cover for your agents who’re running false-flag and other terror operations, coordinating international narcotics trafficking, as well gun running to al-Qaida and numerous, related spin-offs, to include Islamic State, while 90%+ of this Sufi education network are kept sincerely clueless as to the real goings on.

Then, when it all starts falling apart, as it has in Turkey, sit back and pretend none of this could be farther from the truth, as the least corruptible community in Turkey, the Sufis, are fired from their civil service jobs in the tens of thousands for the fact they are Sufi and to be Sufi is now associated with Graham Fuller’s CIA introduced poisonous toad: Fethullah Gülen. The Sufis, left un-tampered with, could have brought Turkey forward in many positive respects, with adherence to an authentic, and moderate, rule of law. Instead, since Turkey’s Erdogan has fallen out with his former partner in crimes against Syria, the CIA, the Sufis have been largely purged from Turkey’s civil service, enabling the corrupt to the core Erdogan administration to replace the many upright Sufis, on the pretext of an anti-Gulen purge, with cronies. Now, if/when the paranoid, narcissist Erdogan is finally removed from power by the CIA, following on this past year’s failed coup, a thoroughly corrupted and weakened Turkey will be ripe for exploitation. It seems almost as if it could have been planned that way. Never was a more cynical or greater CIA crime committed against the wider Islamic community.

And so it is, ‘life’ goes on…
