Goodman_Amazon - 1 (1)

On Melvin Goodman’s ‘Whistle Blower at the CIA’, an assessment of both; book & author. Of too may criticisms to detail, we begin with what appears to be the statement of a naif:

“The CIA I joined was not the paramilitary organization it is today”

This preceding statement is patently absurd; see former Pentagon liaison to CIA Fletcher Prouty’s nearly 50 years ago account ‘The Secret Team.’ What Goodman misses is, the paramilitary arm of the CIA, part of its’ directorate of operations, is simply [these days] ‘out of the closet’ as compared to the era of Alan Dulles which initially had built this quite amazing, but in those days ‘clandestine’ paramilitary arm, replete with world-wide logistics.

As Goodman details the methodical destruction of the CIA’s independent intelligence function, over decades, by politics driving policy, Goodman seems to naively believe the CIA can be salvaged with un-corrupted leadership imposing its’ will from the top down. Many a well intended executive has gone to their career gallows when presiding over a crime syndicate which despises-sabotages their leadership from within.

Goodman has a positive bias (blind spot) towards certain military, reflecting his war college days. Goodman gets the right-wing orientation and archaic military culture correct, but neglects the institutionalized religious extremism and is too generous to top military figures, particularly former students, e.g. Martin Dempsey, and certainly H.R. McMaster; Dempsey sat on his hands and did nothing to address the problem of (as documented by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation) Christian extremism in the officer corps, McMaster is likely part of this present day problem. This infection is also known to have spread throughout the CIA, how can it not be so much as be noted?

Goodman’s assessment of William Colby is unnecessarily oxymoronic; Former director Colby was a ‘reformer’ troubled by the abuses of the agency but this has to be squared with Colby’s on-site leadership of the office overseeing ‘Phoenix Program’ in Vietnam … but as Goodman was aware, Colby profiles as a ‘catholic conscience’ whose CIA crime programs he oversaw had ‘escaped the lab’ or gone out of control, Phoenix with up to 50,000 assassinations of mostly non-combatants (Colby acknowledged 20,000 dead Viet Cong proper, which is questionable), or for that matter, GLADIO aided and abetted by Colby via Opus Dei and the resultant false-flag terror in Europe. He [Goodman] couldn’t write about the prior, and dare not actually touch the latter; on account of his desire to see the CIA salvaged on the one hand, and his having to submit his book to CIA censors on the other hand. However Goodman mentions the possibility in passing, no one from the CIA is going to delve into actual circumstance of Colby’s death; pointing to assassination for his loose tongue over decades, and not least, for putting Douglas Valentine onto the principals of Phoenix, inclusive of Daniel Ellsberg and Ellsberg’s association with international narcotics traffickers.

Goodman describing Colby as an “honorable” CIA director is more than a stretch. Colby, at best, was repentant, however this cannot forgive a world class international criminal, deserving of nothing less than a life in prison term. That other CIA directors were worse, cannot conceal Colby’s personal history of initiating incalculable evil. This ‘catholic’ attitude of ‘forgiveness’ on Goodman’s part, overlooking a world class criminal’s faults, is one of the worst tools of a self-psychology skewing reality; a human defect that largely destroys his book.

On Robert Gates: “Gates lacked a moral core … his long history of lying, pandering and conniving…” Goodman might have better said Gates had been the ‘flotsam in the septic tank at Langley’ but Goodman is a gentleman in all circumstance, whereas I am not. But there is no mention of Gates’ hardcore Iran-Contra crimes as noted by rogue Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben Menache.

Instead, Goodman lays tremendous blame on William ‘Bill’ Casey for all sorts of nefarious acts and yet admits Casey was incomprehensible and senile. He seems to miss it was Robert Gates was actually running things on behalf of the Vice President George H.W. Bush, for the mentally disabled Casey, instead Goodman makes Gates out to be Casey’s sycophant. No doubt Robert Gates is worthy of utter contempt, but to put much of the book into reducing Gates’ more than considerable influence during the Reagan administration, to one of a small, shallow, vindictive, two-faced suck-up and butt-kisser (no doubt Gates was all of these) undermining objective intelligence analysis at the CIA, and whose incompetence combined with conforming ‘intelligence’ to ideological policy had done tremendous damage, is an insult to the informed reader. In reality, Robert Gates was also a cunning, accomplished, world-class criminal, throughout his government career. Despite knowing Gates from 1968, Goodman couldn’t properly read him.

There is no mention of Robert Gates role in the 1980 ‘October Surprise’ (in fact no mention at all, of this critically important event.)

Goodman mentions Robert McFarlane but there is no mention of one of the best kept secrets in Washington; that Reagan’s National Security Advisor, McFarlane, was an Israeli intelligence asset, and this is the real reason he was ‘retired’ rather than face politically damning treason charges, to protect George H.W. Bush’s upcoming run for the presidency.

There is no mention of the Guardian expose, where David Petraeus is shown to have been reported to, at the apex of chain of command, concerning clandestine torture sites, and related death squads, in Iraq. This documentary was closely timed to his [Patraeus] resigning from the CIA (only weeks prior to film release), certainly the real reason behind Petraeus departure, the illicit affair with Paula Broadwell exposed as a ‘cover story’ for his resignation, and why the Broadwell case sat on Attorney General Holder’s desk for a year; to see how revelations might develop, answering a question at the White House: would there be any instance of American press picking up the Guardian Films/BBC Arabic documentary? It stretches credulity Goodman wouldn’t have known this.

For all his criticism of Obama’s protection of John Brennan and handing the CIA over to the operations people, with Obama keeping the CIA Office of Inspector General vacant for 42 months, Goodman is timid, there is no chance this guy would look into Obama’s mother’s career as a clandestine services intelligence officer and the fact a young Barack was employed by a CIA front company.

Goodman utterly blows his North Korea analysis, when using LBJ’s metaphor of a nation that “couldn’t piss its way out of a phone booth” let alone pose an existential threat to the USA. He probably wishes he had that back; since his book’s May 2017 publication, North Korea has tested a hydrogen bomb, and appears to have successfully performed a MIRV (multiple independent re-entry vehicles) test with a medium range missile over the Pacific. Directly relevant to this, there is no mention of the ‘Tinners’ CIA ‘sting’ operation that actually accelerated North Korea’s nuclear program; when the CIA had passed authentic bomb designs, with deliberate flaws introduced, through the international black market … and the CIA’s corrupt cut-outs, who just happened to be expert nuclear engineers, caught and corrected the mistakes prior to selling the bomb schematics. This resulted in the CIA insisting all evidence of the ‘sting’ operation be destroyed, an event described by a Swiss investigator as “hiding their own stupidity.”

Goodman’s treatment of Feinstein’s torture report sticks closely to what is already reported in ‘mainstream’ without so much as a whiff of considering whether the entire exercise were a damage control information operation pointing to Feinstein and CIA in collusion to bury the real numbers of renditions and not having to deal with ‘disappeared’ people. The very idea of Feinstein holding the national security state accountable is at odds with her voting record and real actions in nearly every respect.

If Goodman were a real whistle-blower, the CIA history he details, at minimum, would have 1) pointed out the renditions story has never added up, questioning whatever exercise the Feinstein report is really all about; because there is a glaring inconsistency in the math of 11,000 known flights and more  identified renditions aircraft than acknowledged ‘black site’ prisoners, 2) brought up the Guardian expose of Petraeus, 3) confirmed the 1980 ‘October Surprise’ deal with Iran’s ayatollahs, and Robert Gates involvement, 4) fingered William Colby’s key role in setting up the GLADIO cells that eventually terrorized Europe throughout the 1980s, 5) brought up the ‘Tinners’ nuclear sting gone awry, 6) spilled on the CIA’s history of international narcotics trafficking (NOT an isolated Iran-Contra linked phenomenon but ongoing from Vietnam to this day in Afghanistan),  and, not least, 7) how it is a known cartel hit-man, Enrique Prado, rose to become the CIA equal to a two star general, even as  he continued to conduct business with the international narcotics trafficking under-world. Prado is in private business, to this day, untouched. Tell us Goodman, who at CIA is protecting Prado? Goodman could have outlined these subjects without submitting his book for review & censorship and willingly suffered the consequence, but he didn’t.

On the other hand, as an analyst who, having never worked in the ‘operations directorate’, Goodman is a technocrat who never actually experienced the ‘underbelly’ of the CIA. That said, it is hard to believe he’d not be intimately informed of the dirtier side’s history after 24 years at the agency. And most certainly, no one who wishes to stay within the safe confines of the establishment would ever point to the official 9/11 record as being equally bizarre to any of the conspiracy theories; particularly as relates to World Trade Center Building 7 having ‘died of fright’ on the afternoon of 11 September.

Finally, Goodman’s admiration for William ‘the Iran animus’ Burns  – Condoleezza Rice’s hatchet-man, when it came to sinking any rehabilitation in the USA’s relations with Iran under cover of, or pretense of, ‘diplomatic’ efforts – and wishing that genuine creep could have been appointed Director of CIA, shows Goodman’s utter poor judgement of character, or the disingenuous nature of those portions of his book amounting to a revisionist historical fiction. I’m guessing it is poor judgement of a failed analyst for the following important facts Goodman DOES bring out:

Goodman points out that, in March 1985, the CIA was responsible for a Beirut car bomb laden with 400 lbs of explosive that entirely missed its target but killed 80 innocent people. This was result of a) false (read politicized) analysis leading to US Marines stationed in Lebanon b) the subsequent blowing up of the marine’s barracks c) resultant attempt to target a Lebanese responsible for the attack on the marines due to said false analysis placing marines in harms way d) assassination of SOLELY 80 INNOCENTS;  on account of corruption/incompetence by the CIA from beginning through end of process.

‘cash awards’ (legal bribes) paid for ‘politicized’ (falsified) analysis by superiors. Early example is the 1985 assessment Agca’s Attempt to Kill the Pope: A Case for Soviet Involvement.’ The falsifiers are promoted within the system, a legacy of Robert Gates.

Concerning subsequent falsified analysis, this following metaphor is used when choosing people to produce the product:

“”Judge shopping in the courthouse” for there is no better way to assure the outcome of a tendentious intelligence product. You can get the sentence you desire with the right judges; you can do the same with the appointment of the right analysts to draft an intelligence product”

When the better intelligence didn’t fit the politics of policy, Robert Gates routinely blocked that information’s circulation. John Brennan took this farther with his reorganizing the CIA into regional ‘fusion centers’ where the analysts themselves are now subject to manipulation via pre-corrupted ‘raw’ intelligence fed to them directly by the operations side of the agency; thus ‘taming’ the independence of the analysts. This is consistent with my own analysis of the new fusion centers (which goes much farther.)

The office of DNI was designed under Bush to give intelligence final product control (delivery/dissemination) within the administration to the Pentagon; who controls the DNI budget and personnel (!!)

The offices of inspector general are compromised at Defense, State, CIA & NSA.

The CIA’s operations directorate “senior leadership” began an internal war against the OIG office under Bush but this endeavor was much more successful under Obama…

“Obama endorsed an overall weakening of the office of Inspector General throughout the national security bureaucracy and undermined to work of individual inspectors general”

…noting Goodman’s wife was employed at CIA OIG during Bush Jr, to 2005, his source is premium. As well, Goodman notes:

“The State Department had no Inspector General during the entire tenure of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, leaving in place an acting Inspector General with close ties to Secretary Clinton and her husband”

Diane Feinstein “sat on her hands while CIA director Panetta dismantled and marginalized the oversight responsibilities of the Office of Inspector General”

And finally: “The Pentagon is responsible for nearly 90% of personnel in the intelligence community and 85% of the community’s $75 billion budget”

The upshot of Goodman’s book: the military has won the internecine intelligence battle for control set in motion with the creation of the CIA as an intelligence GATHERING (not clandestine operations) agency by Harry Truman and this is not good news. At the end of the day, with a thoroughly militarized intelligence community (noting the CIA’s operations sector has been paramilitary since the era of Allan Dulles), Goodman’s overall point is correct, but this could be lost on readers drowned in the book’s obsession with Robert Gates rants.

Mephisto

A Mephisto assessment of reality

Robert Baer.jpg

“I know the guy that went into his broker in San Diego and said “Cash me out, it’s going down tomorrow. His brother worked at the White House”Robert Baer, 2008, speaking of 9/11

Former CIA operative Robert Baer’s moment of hubris, spoken with the smirk more typical of private dinner parties attended by mafia, hit men, and spooks moved on to private ‘contracts’, points to the ambivalence of a man whose dying conscience could not rise above:

“Professional standards require intelligence professionals to lie, hide information, or use covert tactics to protect their “cover,” access, sources, and responsibilities. The Central Intelligence Agency expects, teaches, encourages, and controls these tactics so that the lies are consistent and supported (“backstopped”). The CIA expects intelligence officers to teach others to lie, deceive, steal, launder money, and perform a variety of other activities that would certainly be illegal if practiced in the United States. They call these tactics “tradecraft,” and intelligence officers practice them in all the world’s intelligence services” -Hulnick & Mattausch, “Ethics and Morality in U.S. Secret Intelligence”

Baer enjoys talking out both sides of his mouth, it would seem, having at other times denied 9/11 could have been pulled off by intelligence services. Or, Baer could care less the White House put its middle finger up the anus of the USA on 9/11, and much of the world in the process.

After all, Robert Baer appears on CNN, and these days practices his ‘tradecraft’ by propagandizing the American people. Why? Because however he might have lived ‘dangerously’ as a CIA spook, at the end of the day he’s either an amoral coward or a greed driven psychopath. If this were not so, Baer would have spoken out in no uncertain terms on who he knows whose “brother worked at the White House” no matter the personal consequence. And that consequence, at the least, would determine he’d have no more lucrative media gigs, he’d not be working, propagandizing the American people, for the corporate prostitutes’ press corps, especially CNN, whose “lies are consistent and supported

“My sense here is we’re approaching the smoking gun, that this meeting may have very well have been to talk about hacked emails,” Baer said while talking with Ana Cabrera on “CNN Newsroom”

There you have it, Robert Baer, in July of 2017, pushing ‘the Russians hacked the election’ propaganda lie, a product of Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s imagination, while performing geopolitical fellatio for the USA’s Counterfeit News Network.

Have a listen to a smirking, amoral, traitorous coward concerning 9/11:

 

Probably not many of the lower echelon at Central Intelligence Agency realize the agency propagandizes its own employees. I’ve touched on this story before, particularly in regards to the CIA creating false legacy, in a historical  context, for internal consumption. But here, in context of the Abottabad raid (I have issues with Hersh’s take on that story but this is besides today’s point), Hersh points out very well how the CIA lies to its own people, when the CIA had asserted agency intelligence officers and analysts were responsible for locating bin-Ladin.

“There’s something the agency, it’s so interesting, people call it, the newspapers some times call it in a story, eyewash .. it’s when you do something, and you have to protect the source, [in the case of the CIA] you let other people in the agency think that they were responsible for certain actions. So, you’ve got people down in the bowels, intelligence people in the intelligence office, analysts in the analysts office of the CIA, writing, looking at couriers, and they’ve been doing it for years without much luck, but you now tell them ‘you did it guys’ .. and then they can be taken out to reporters and be very credible, because they are credible, they think they did it” -Seymour Hersh

Go to minute 18:30 of the video and have a listen:

16 September 2017 update: Antiwar.com reports:

“Under this deal, which was reported by the Wall Street Journal, Assange would provide conclusive proof that Russia was not the source of hacked emails WikiLeaks published. In return, he would be offered a pardon, or some other assurance that he wouldn’t be prosecuted by the US for involvement in WikiLeaks.

“Rohrabacher brought this deal to the White House Wednesday [13 September 2017], but Chief of Staff John Kelly not only apparently didn’t like the offer, but didn’t tell President Trump that the offer had been made, instead telling Rohrabacher to take the proposal to the intelligence community.

“The intelligence community almost certainly wouldn’t be in a position to offer any sort of amnesty for Assange, which likely means the end of the proposal. Rohrabacher offered to set up a meeting between Assange and a Trump representative, but that too appears to have been dismissed by Kelly”

So, the generals keep Trump sequestered like the Vatican keeps a rampant pedophile priest under wraps; away from any real work and responsibilities (in this case, kept from knowledge of what’s actually going on in the world.) But now, with the Wall Street Journal blowing the whistle, Ivanka should soon be whispering in her daddy’s ear; and what will tell you everything is, what happens next. Suppose Trump keeps his mouth shut and says nothing? This will indicate the absolute completion of the Pence aligned generals capture of the Oval Office.

But the real news here is, Assange provides evidence of his belief that he is personally more important than any unconditional release of information which should stop the Pentagon and NATO’s pursuit of a war footing directed at Russia in its tracks.

Narcissism? Is there a stronger word? Julian Assange, who fancies himself ‘Jesus of the Digital Age’ would appear to be tired of bearing his cross. The Roman’s puppet, King Herod, hasn’t been authorized to provide the pardon and Pontius Pilate’s (read Mike Pompeo’s) people will deliver Jesus of the Digital Age to crucifixtion on behalf of the ‘duopoly’ mob, to satisfy their blood lust. Good luck with the world’s biggest ‘deal-maker’ (read loser) Wikileaks, because you blew it by waiting too long.

The entire sand-castle (a product of Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s imagination) the “Russians hacked the election” is finally washing away with an incoming tide. How this plays out is anyone’s guess.

The open question is, how the new information will be leveraged, if it were to actually break into the open widely, with the bad boy Trump essentially captured by the surreal evil that surrounds him. Other than pure evil (e.g. Pence), only a narcissist or a fool would ever desire to be president of this particular republic. In ‘The Donald’, we have both.

1 August 2017 an audio tape is leaked in which Seymour Hersh states the FBI knows it was Seth Rich leaked the DNC mails:

“What the [FBI] report says is that some time in late Spring… he makes contact with WikiLeaks, that’s in his computer. Anyway, they found what he had done is that he had submitted a series of documents — of emails, of juicy emails, from the DNC” -Seymour Hersh

On 9 August 2017 The Nation magazine publishes a column on a group of independent experts…

“Forensic investigators, intelligence analysts, system designers, program architects, and computer scientists of long experience and strongly credentialed are now producing evidence disproving the official version of key events last year”

…demonstrating the DNC mails were leaked, not hacked.

On 18 August 2017 Antiwar.com reports Congressman Dana  Rohrabacher has met with Assange concerning the DNC mails and [the article] further credibly suggests Assange is holding the DNC leak evidence hostage as a bargaining chip to possibly acquire a pardon for himself and leverage wikileaks into legitimacy with a President of the United States who at this point is owned by the USA’s intelligence agencies, a hare-brained scheme destined to fail. Assange & company waited too long.

But this would fit Julian Assange’s self-centered, persecuted-savior complex which never ceases to amaze, this guy (as well, Craig Murray) has allowed the idiots surrounding Trump to push us towards the brink with Russia, for months. All because Assange is tired of his embassy confinement in London, a circumstance that is entirely his own fault for the fact he didn’t have the self-discipline to keep his dick in his pants (whether Assange’s admitted intercourse was a case of rape or not.)

What’s more is, this blog pointed to strong circumstantial evidence it was Seth Rich leaked the DNC mails this past January, and recalling this, it still stretches the imagination a former UK ambassador would make an amateur espionage move worthy of a cub scout playing spy. But that’s what Craig Murray had done in the case of the DNC emails leaked to WikiLeaks.

Seymour Hersh states Seth Rich is the source of the DNC mails. Craig Murray states he had met with the source of the DNC mails. A + B = C:

Craig Murray met with Seth Rich

That Murray would be a high value target for American counter-intelligence to monitor for the reason of his high profile association with WikiLeaks is beyond obvious. For Murray then to state

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things”

…goes to the practically bizarre when coming from a former United Kingdom ambassador to Uzbekistan. The UK is little different to the USA in the case of embassies providing cover for spies; in which case Murray should at least have some rudimentary espionage understanding such as YOU DO NOT MEET YOUR SOURCE DIRECTLY WHEN YOU ARE A HIGH PROFILE TARGET OF YOUR ADVERSARY’S COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE HUNTING YOUR (in this case, WikiLeaks) SOURCE(S)

Then, we had WikiLeak’s Assange giving what amounts to a ‘Glomar’ ‘I will neither confirm or deny’ response concerning the murder (assassination) of Seth Rich after appearing to suggest Rich was the source of the DNC emails leak:

Beyond this, WikiLeaks offering a $20,000 reward for the solving of the Seth Rich murder is laughable, that’s what an American west coast upscale community would offer for the arrest of a serial killer of the neighborhood’s cats. Two million dollars might get two seconds’ attention of a corruptible counter-intelligence agent with knowledge of a professional hit on Seth Rich, twenty million might even net an inside the agency sucker willing to take the exceedingly high risk to one’s life (almost certain death) that would attend selling out an agency hit man for substantial lucre. In truth, the WikiLeaks reward offer amounted to little more than a tabloid publicity stunt.

Narcissism is a blinding thing; and a self-righteous narcissism is no exception. Ambassador Murray could have every good intention but on the face of it, he had seriously screwed up. Murray and WikiLeaks should have immediately come clean, there was little to lose. Seth Rich was the source, Murray had met with him, and much could have been gained by stating so; there would be nothing given up any intelligence agency involved did not already know. It have been the right thing to do.

Craig Murray stating ‘I had a serious lapse of professional judgement and this resulted in the death of Seth Rich’ would be the most responsible and newsworthy move WikiLeaks could have taken; to counter the CIA’s ‘the Russians hacked the DNC’ propaganda lie, in which there is much invested by the agency; and the consequent damage to relations with Russia, and growing threat to what little world peace yet exists, is immense. WikiLeaks should have done the right thing a long time ago and they have not. Why not? Because Assange and WikiLeaks believes Assange’s comfort is more important than world peace. What fucks. This is beyond inexcusable, it’s criminal. But for Murray, there’s more at stake here than just a hit to ego & image.

Murray’s likely role in the DNC leaks case? A personal meeting with Rich to confirm for WikiLeaks Seth Rich was a bona fide insider with authentic material prior to a WikiLeaks cash payment to Rich and arrangements completed for the mails transfer.

Now, it is a question of ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ release the evidence because WikiLeaks waited too long, and let the criminals surrounding Trump consolidate their power while investing deeply in the myth of the Russians hacked the election; a criminal cabal that will up the ante on the world stage to any level necessary to avoid accountability. WikiLeaks Idiots. WikiLeaks Morons.

Meanwhile, Murray subsequently barred from the United States (except that he applies for a visa, typically unnecessary for a British citizen) appears to have been, in a  manner of speaking, a deep state message to Murray: ‘thank you very much for the lapse of judgement, we have taken full advantage with the assassination of Seth Rich and we won’t be requiring your services after this’ (he’d be smart to stay away.)

The really sticky problem for WikiLeaks in this scenario is, Seymour Hersh asserts in the  recorded call WikiLeaks had paid Rich for the leaked documents, damaging or reducing to element of pretense WikiLeaks claims of journalism & providing rationale for deep state prosecutors & judges to find this had been straightforward espionage. But they won’t do it if the Rich-Murray meeting stays buried, a LOT is invested in ‘the Russians did it’ for the public consumption. If it DOES break open, Murray’s ‘goose is cooked.’ It’s now not only WikiLeaks problem in a larger sense, but Murray’s, whether he does or doesn’t admit the assassinated Seth Rich had been the DNC mails source.

Murray’s reputation? C’est la mort.

I watched the second plane strike live on tv, and since, had seen zoomed in footage (from much closer & different angle) of a cargo model jet dressed up (painted) like a passenger jet hitting the building. This plane had a ‘pod’ attached to its underside, I’ve not seen in any commercial plane model, passenger or cargo, before or since. For myself, when it comes to our government’s ‘stories’ and the same endlessly repeated in the western democracies commercial news, nothing will ever be seen the same; meanwhile a couple thousand trained architects and engineers see things differently too:

“On September 11, 2001, the three worst structural failures in modern history took place when World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7 suffered complete and rapid destruction.

“In the aftermath of the tragedy, most members of the architecture and engineering community, as well as the general public, assumed that the buildings’ destruction had occurred as a result of the airplane impacts and fires. This view was reinforced by subsequent federal investigations, culminating in FEMA’s 2002 Building Performance Study and in the 2005 and 2008 reports by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

“Since 9/11, however, independent researchers around the world have assembled a large body of evidence that overwhelmingly refutes the notion that airplane impacts and fires caused the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7. This body of evidence, most of which FEMA and NIST omitted from their reports, instead supports the troubling conclusion that all three skyscrapers were destroyed in a process known as “controlled demolition,” where explosives and/or other devices are used to bring down a building”

Key Evidence

  1. Rapid onset of destruction,
  2. Constant acceleration at or near free-fall through what should have been the path of greatest resistance,
  3. Numerous eyewitness accounts of explosions including 118 FDNY personnel,
  4. Lateral ejection of multi-ton steel framing members distances of 600 feet at more than 60 mph,
  5. Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete, and large volumes of expanding pyroclastic-like dust clouds,
  6. Isolated explosive ejections 20 to 60 stories below the “crush zone,”
  7. Total destruction and dismemberment of all three buildings, with 220 floors each an acre in size missing from the Twin Towers’ debris pile,
  8. Several tons of molten steel/iron found in the debris piles,
  9. Evidence of thermite incendiaries on steel beams,
  10. Nanothermite composites and iron microspheres found in WTC dust samples.

The preceding (italicized) from Architects & Engineers for 9-11 Truth. Follows is my own article from 2013:

Fear of Minor Debris

If you can wrap your head around the fact over 2,200 certified architects & engineers have directly disputed the official report on 9/11, that’s a good start. Now, consider what happened to a 47 story steel & concrete modern structure on the afternoon of 9/11.

No plane hit Building 7, only minor debris

Building 7 is the only modern steel structure in the world purportedly brought down by minor fire, compared to other steel structures surviving much larger & more intense fires.

The 1,500 professionally trained architects & engineers who dispute the government’s WTC Building 7 collapse explanation (above video) has grown to 2,200 professionally trained architects & engineers who dispute the government’s WTC Building 7 collapse explanation (below video)

And an entirely independent BYU scientist draws identical conclusion:

And the highest ranking former intelligence officer yet to speak out on what’s wrong with the 9/11 picture, Major General Stubblebine:

Then,  a five minute explanation of about 10% of what’s wrong with the ‘official’ 9/11 account:

If that gets your interest, at Asia Times there is an exclusive investigative report on 9/11 related ‘put options’ or “insider trading” based on advance knowledge of the attack.

With this evidence, people should look more closely at what had happened on 9/11:

http://architects-engineers.org/

And a big question has remained swept under the rug; how is it several of the supposed ‘hijackers’ subsequently appear to have turned up alive?

“Of the 19 identities assigned by the FBI to the alleged suicide hijackers of the four commandeered jetliners, at least six have been disputed”

Did stolen passports provide their identity? We now know this has been an Israeli method, since a blown operation in Dubai:

“Six more innocent Britons were thrust into the international murder plot of a Hamas leader after it emerged yesterday that their identities had also been stolen. The revelation means at least 12 British identities were cloned to carry out the audacious hit on Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai. Dubai police yesterday identified 15 new suspects over the attack at a luxury hotel, bringing the total number to 26. The assassination, which bears all the hallmarks of a spy novel, is widely believed to be the work of Israel’s feared secret service Mossad”

Perhaps the preceding article is too friendly to MOSSAD with ‘suspected’, it could be stated with some clarity we know most certainly a fake passport scheme was utilized by MOSSAD, on account of a case in Germany:

“The man, using the name Uri Brodsky, is suspected of working for Mossad in Germany and helping to issue a fake German passport to a member of the Mossad operation that allegedly killed Hamas agent Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January, a spokesman for the German federal prosecutor’s office told The Associated Press”

In fact, with intelligence agencies using stolen or fraudulently acquired passports for operations, and with strong circumstantial evidence of 9/11 accused hijackers turning up alive, evidence swept under the carpet rather than thoroughly investigated, the identity of every alleged hijacker can be said to be in doubt. And then we have:

“They [FBI] feel the higher echelons torpedoed the investigation into the Israeli New Jersey cell. Leads were not fully investigated”. Among those lost leads was the figure of Dominik Suter, whom the U.S. authorities apparently never attempted to contact. Intelligence expert and author James Bamford told me there was similar frustration within the CIA: “People I’ve talked to at the CIA were outraged at what was going on. They thought it was outrageous that there hadn’t been a real investigation, that the facts were hanging out there without any conclusion”

And:

“What is perhaps most damning is that the Israelis’ [MOSSAD] celebration on the New Jersey waterfront occurred in the first sixteen minutes after the initial crash, when no one was aware this was a terrorist attack. In other words, from the time the first plane hit the north tower, at 8:46 a.m., to the time the second plane hit the south tower, at 9:02 a.m., the overwhelming assumption of news outlets and government officials was that the plane’s impact was simply a terrible accident. It was only after the second plane hit that suspicions were aroused. Yet if the men were cheering for political reasons, as they reportedly told the FBI, they obviously believed they were witnessing a terrorist act, and not an accident”

With just these few preceding tidbits of verifiable information, the official explanation for 9/11 suddenly seems more far-fetched than those claims of some so-called ‘conspiracy’ theorists:

‘War by Deception’

On top of inaccurate identities, the accepting what appears to be a government claim WTC Building 7 died of fright, and uninvestigated [by law enforcement] insider trading of ‘put options’ demanding 9/11 be pulled off as presently written into the record to make a profit, what more is needed to understand the 9/11 Commission engaged in a whitewash?

Fear, nothing more, prevents solving the mystery of Building 7. Every western industrialized national leader who sits silent on Building 7 intelligence reports contributes to a culture of deceit & cowardice

The most likely criminal cabal behind 9/11 finds its roots in the 1980s, when Shimon Peres, with CIA complicity, sought to open a competing channel to arm Iran via the Iran-Contra business model, as noted by Ari Ben Menache’s ‘Profits of War’, and accomplished little more than provide a screen for the 1st (LIKUD aligned MOSSAD) channel; in the event the CIA-MOSSAD joint venture was to spill into the open. It is my opinion this is why George H.W. Bush and Robert Gates’ CIA allowed the 2nd (Peres-Labor) channel to set itself up in business (Reagan’s Vice President Bush had been career CIA and Robert Gates was running the CIA for Bill Casey.) From their point of view, it was a prescient move on account of the difficulty of keeping something as big as this had become, under wraps. In fact, Iran-Contra’s 1st channnel never missed a beat and went on as though the scandal had never broken into the news. What is important to note is, profits from Iran-Contra were funding corrupt political leadership and their programs, in the 1980s, on the Israeli side, Iran Contra was propping up LIKUD and West Bank settlement expansion. On the USA side, Iran-Contra profits was bankrolling the criminal enterprise of the Bush dynasty and associated politics. The cooperation between the intelligence assets on the political right has been longstanding between the American and Israeli entities.

Robert Parry’s journalism notwithstanding, the authentic facts of Iran-Contra were never reported on in mainstream. What had been reported as the most salient facts were essentially a smokescreen. This is reinforced by the fact Newsweek had virulently attacked Ari Ben-Menache’s narrative on publication; not long after presenting Robert Parry’s reporting on Iran-Contra as fact. These are irreconcilable phenomena except in the case of Ben-Menache’s considerably expanded account, undermining the limited picture spoon fed to the public by the press, is correct. The Iran-Contra ‘cover’ story had to be protected, investigations were ongoing and the CIA had engineered damage control. North and Poindexter et al, as complicit and stupid as they were, were nonetheless patsies. Robert Parry’s reporting over the ensuing years reinforces the idea his role, all along, has been that of a disinformation asset, whether willing or unwitting, for the CIA. Parry has moved on to pervert American constitutional history in contradiction of (one could say smearing) the anti-federalists intentions relating to checks on a central government, he had put a lot of energy into being an apologist for the inexcusable Obama (laying blame on neo-cons working for Obama as though Obama were not complicit) and, not least, Parry denies the incontrovertible fact the official 9/11 report white-washed the actual circumstance of the collapse of the twin towers and the several hours later destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 (in the afternoon) of 11 September, 2001.

Recalling Robert McFarlane, Ronald Reagan’s National Security Adviser, had been working for Israeli intelligence, there is practically no position in American government cannot be construed to be at risk of penetration and compromise via AIPAC. How this might play in the events of 9/11 is open to conjecture; Ariel Sharon, the Israeli prime minister on 9/11, was a man possessed of the necessary character to murder three thousand people in a gambit to get the USA to fight Israel’s wars, this much is clear. Whether MOSSAD had co-opted enough key people in the USA security apparatus to bring it off, is not. At odds with the Israelis’ initiating the attacks is the fact of Dick Cheney ordering the New York area air defense shut down for the morning of 11 September, while a ‘coincidental’ exercise was to be run simulating a ‘terrorist attack’ with jet liners crashing into New York sky-scrapers. Could Cheney’s team all have been Israeli assets? It seems unlikely. On the other hand, it is classic Israeli style to use their enemies, wherever possible, to take care of their most dirty work. And America is LIKUD’s enemy in a cold political calculation. Related to this, however MOSSAD and Saudi intelligence might cooperate in common geopolitical interests, most certainly Israel and Saudi Arabia are not friends. Utilizing al-Qaida as a front to initiate the attacks, or utilizing Saudis as patsies for a false-flag ‘terrorist’ attack, either one, is consistent with Israeli style; in the past MOSSAD has laundered operations through the Palestine Liberation Organization for purpose of everything from terrorism for propaganda purposes, to political murders.

An alternative possibility is the Israelis duping the USA’s people into assisting with their operation. The Israelis may have/had the necessary access and certainly the motivation; whereas the Americans have repeatedly demonstrated they are guilty of that particular brand of hubris that is blinding.

Another possible scenario is the USA’s geopolitical intelligence engineers having penetrated an Israeli operation and opened doors for the 9/11 actors, basically rolling out the red carpet for an Israeli run operation, unbeknownst to the Israelis, a covert co-option if you will.

A fourth possibility is a joint venture.

A fifth possibility is the Bush criminal syndicate responsible for 9/11, taking care to frame the Israelis in case the operation were to unravel.

In any of these hypothesis, Rudy Guiliani having located his disaster headquarters in WTC Building 7, is key. Building 7’s demolition can been seen as obliteration of evidence; as it ‘fell down’ on the afternoon of 9/11 and profiles as a deliberately demolished command center.

My own estimation is, based on a history of CIA/MOSSAD cooperation, the fourth and fifth possibilities are most likely, with elements of both integrated to the actual facts. Backstabbing is a common phenomenon in geopolitical dirty play.

What’s almost certain is, the Saudis, no matter how dirty and complicit, were cynically used and Al-Qaida was a minor actor, a dupe and cover story, and was not primarily responsible for 9/11.

Insofar as responsibility & accountability, there is none. These agencies or actors, with the possible exception of al-Qaida, would have access to tactical nuclear weapons or ‘suitcase nukes’ for purpose of false-flag terrorism, were it to come to the likes of a Bibi Netanyahu, or Bush crime syndicate and minions, in effect the associated Doug Coe cult, determinated to up the ante as opposed to face accountability.

That’s where you have Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, and Jeff Sessions, examples given, in the shoes of Dick Cheney, Robert Gates, and John Ashcroft in today’s politic –

What follows should be viewed as a more honest ‘part two’ of the preceding post authored by Andreago Ferreira of Akamai Tree blog, noting Andreago Ferreira is a pseudonym, the author does not publish under his authentic identity –

I’d moved on to read part two of the Akamai Tree assessment, part one being on Snowden, part two being on Wikileaks, and one should never be surprised at a second result at seeming cross-purposes with a first result. I spotted several ‘weaknesses’ (read mistakes) in the 2nd article and when I touched on those mistakes with a comment, the ‘mistakes’ morphed into disinformation with the author’s reply.

Akamai - 1

My comment:

There has been a growing ‘preponderance of the evidence’ the DNC mails were leaked by Rich. You can find that in the title ‘incompetent espionage and wikileaks’ at my blog, if interested. Also, the article disappoints in its’ missing ‘the other family’ which Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions (and more) belong to (of ‘C Street’ infamy, exposed by Jeff Sharlet.)

The Snowden piece (part one) is much stronger

Was met with this reply:

As far as I can tell, there is virtually no even remotely compelling evidence that Rich leaked the DNC emails. The ‘forensicator’ report is highly misleading and many of the claims in it are outright false (particularly the claims regarding data transfer rates/download speeds).

Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions are way outside the scope of this blog post as well as the two-part series as a whole, so I really don’t feel as though their exclusion is of any consequence at all or that including them would have added anything to the core points being made here

Clearly, while throwing Snowden (probably deservedly/accurately) and Assange (deservedly but very inaccurately) under the bus, the blog author appears to be shielding Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions, and covering for the assassins of Seth Rich. Oops.

I will address self-labeled “propagandist” Andreago Ferreira’s (I have a screenshot of his old Blogspot ‘about me’) rebuttals to my comment in reverse order, dealing with his following, first:

Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions are way outside the scope of this blog post as well as the two-part series as a whole, so I really don’t feel as though their exclusion is of any consequence at all or that including them would have added anything to the core points being made here

Well, I’m not really certain how Ferreira expects he can drive that particular square peg into this round hole:

Akamai - 1 (1)

If Trump were truly a dire threat to the deep state and the media was entirely in the pocket of the Clinton crime family as the altmedia goons suggest, subtle orders filtered down through media executives and top editors (nearly all of whom play ball with the power-elite and have intelligence connections) would have made sure that Trump be utterly blacked out in the media and treated as a mere nuisance as opposed to a legitimate threat to democracy, guaranteeing that he be relegated to obscurity, as for example Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan were. Political outsiders are simply not given full control of the news cycle. The truth is that Donald Trump, contrary to both the alternative and mainstream media, is a long-time political insider who’s throughout his life had intimate ties to some of the most powerful men in the world and installed into the Oval Office by very same kinds of people his base loathes; he’s the latest in the line of phony political outsiders which includes Ross Perot, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Ted Cruz, etc. and has been thrust into power by an alliance of the American conservative/defense establishment and the international Zionist syndicate under former CIA director and top neoconservative Zionist James Woolsey. These groups are vying for power within the administration as well as consorting and scheming with the liberal “globalist” establishment, which has managed to install numerous members in the administration

His preceding is actually a somewhat astute observation but cannot be squared with excluding Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions as “way outside the scope of this blog post” as Ferreira maintained in his comment/rebuttal of myself. How’s that? It is as simple as his paragraph’s last sentence:

These groups are vying for power within the administration as well as consorting and scheming with the liberal “globalist” establishment, which has managed to install numerous members in the administration

There is no group “vying for power in the administration” more successfully than the group represented in Mike Pence (whose role model is Dick Cheney), the administrations highest ranking member of the Coe cult, also known as ‘The Fellowship’ and ‘The Family’ which now holds the office of the Vice Presidency. Who’re these people? Here’s a small sampling:

Men under the Family’s religio-political counsel include, in addition to Ensign, Coburn and Pickering, Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Jim DeMint and Lindsey Graham, both R-S.C.; James Inhofe, R-Okla., John Thune, R-S.D., and recent senators and high officials such as John Ashcroft, Ed Meese, Pete Domenici and Don Nickles. Over in the House there’s Joe Pitts, R-Penn., Frank Wolf, R-Va., Zach Wamp, R-Tenn., Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., and John R. Carter, R-Texas. Historically, the Family has been strongly Republican, but it includes Democrats, too. There’s Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, for instance, a vocal defender of putting the Ten Commandments in public places, and Sen. Mark Pryor, the pro-war Arkansas Democrat responsible for scuttling Obama’s labor agenda. Sen. Pryor explained to me the meaning of bipartisanship he’d learned through the Family: “Jesus didn’t come to take sides. He came to take over.” And by Jesus, the Family means the Family

Other than Vice President Pence, known top ‘family’ members in the  administration include Jeff Sessions who neatly abandoned Trump, resulting in special counsel Robert Mueller’s ‘the Russians did it’ coming travesty of Justice (Mueller should be famous for what he DID NOT investigate when heading up the FBI, like CIA narcotics trafficking and related money laundering), as well Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, plugging ‘the family’ into American intelligence across the spectrum.

My source closely investigating these people states Mike Pompeo is a suspected member and it would appear Betsy DeVos is aligned and closely collaborating.

Who was present when then president-elect Trump was introduced to the movement’s leader? Mike Pence, who is responsible for General Mike Flynn’s departure from the administration.

coe_trumo_meet-1

Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953 has spoken at the breakfast, a point made at the meeting to Trump by the evangelical lay minister Douglas Coe, a leader in The Fellowship religious organization, according to Coons. Also attending the meeting with Trump was Boozman, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, and several of Trump’s faith advisers

Now, somehow these people are outside the purview of Ferreira’s “groups … vying for power within the administration” with his “Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions are way outside the scope of this blog post” despite they’ve not only fired Flynn, and have undermined Trump with stepping out of the  way of appointing Robert Mueller special counsel, they seem to have mostly brought Tillerson to heel (if indeed Tillerson was ever ‘friendly’ towards the Russians) and they’re likely behind having rid Trump of Bannon, related to Pence aligned generals consolidating control; recalling it was General Kelly sent Bannon packing:

Now, going to the ‘vying for control’, lets have a look a little closer at who’s actually doing the ‘vying.’ Would you believe Bannon’s nationalists versus the Coe Cult’s (read Pence’s) internationalists?

Khan, meanwhile, told me he was sought out by Doug Coe, head of The Family, the secretive fundamentalist group which, as Jeff Sharlet reported in his book The Family and C Street, facilitates prayer and meetings for the elite politicians and businessmen that group considers to be Jesus’s “key men”

So, we have Coe’s people (preceding) locked into a fight with (Bannon aligned) Islamophobes:

Akamai - 1 (3)

And May’s Sharia panel, which featured former CIA director James Woolsey

Huh. Why does Woolsey ring a bell? Probably because he’s a main bad guy (he TRULY IS bad) picked on by Ferreira, recalling his claiming accurately:

Donald Trump, contrary to both the alternative and mainstream media, is a long-time political insider who’s throughout his life had intimate ties to some of the most powerful men in the world and installed into the Oval Office by very same kinds of people his base loathes […] and has been thrust into power by an alliance of the American conservative/defense establishment and the international Zionist syndicate under former CIA director and top neoconservative Zionist James Woolsey

WHY, then, would self-labeled “propagandist” Ferreira use the classic disinformation technique of simply making a false and unsupported assertion (he’s too savvy not to  know better) of…

Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions are way outside the scope of this blog post

…when Pence and Sessions are clearly big-league players in his:

groups […] vying for power within the administration”

This brings us to the other portion of his comment/rebuttal of my short remarks at his blog:

As far as I can tell, there is virtually no even remotely compelling evidence that Rich leaked the DNC emails. The ‘forensicator’ report is highly misleading and many of the claims in it are outright false (particularly the claims regarding data transfer rates/download speeds)

Because if you were a Clintonista…

^ Ferreira’s old Blogspot ‘about me’

…and Ferreira most certainly is, you’d have a lot invested in ‘the Russians hacked the election’ (a Hillary mantra, and Hillary, by the way, has more than flirted with the Coe cult in the past) and this requires not only supporting the aligned (through pretending they are outside the scope of discussion) Doug Coe cult’s Pence, whose people are also deeply invested in ‘the Russians did it’ bullshit, but also requires covering for the assassins of Seth Rich, the leaker who accordingly needed removed from every sense of reality, not only this life. But first, let’s go to his…

The ‘forensicator’ report is highly misleading and many of the claims in it are outright false (particularly the claims regarding data transfer rates/download speeds)

Given that the Snowden leaks didn’t really reveal much that we didn’t already know from William Binney, Tom Drake, James Bamford as well as whistleblowers from other agencies and exposes from the ’70s onward about the “Five Eyes”/ECHELON comprehensive electronic surveillance network

Noting Ferreira tossed a bone to both William Binney and Thomas Drake in his part one (the very good Snowden piece), the reader can examine how these two came down on opposite sides of the ‘forensicator report’ Ferreira claims is patently falsified in his comment to me at his Wikileaks article:

Drake’s group, in its challenge on interpretations of evidence, also maintains there is no verifiable evidence the ‘Russians did it’ (the Guccifer claims promoted by Ferreira) but maintain a ‘hack’ (as opposed to a leak) cannot be ruled out:

However, this VIPS memo could have easily raised the necessary and critical questions without resorting to law-of-physics conclusions that claim to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that it was an inside-network copy only and then asserting the “fact” that the Russians (or anybody else for that matter) did not hack the DNC

Binney’s group, in it’s rebuttal, says the Drake group dropped the ball:

Many of the points raised suggest the authors do not fully understand the analysis

Moreover, Binney’s group seems more strongly credentialed in the cyber world of intelligence whereas Drake’s group is more of a straightforward military and/or intelligence background. There’s a bit of crossover in both groups but they appear to be weighted just as stated. One can read the backgrounds of each group at the respective links. In any case, there is clearly a hung jury, but solely reflecting on the technical aspect, bringing us to the HUMIT (human intelligence.) Here is where I have to come down solidly on the side of Binney’s group because they’ve noted the statements of former UK ambassador Craig Murray:

Akamai - 1 (2)

An associate of Assange, former UK ambassador Craig Murray, has said the WikiLeaks source was a leak from an insider. “To my certain knowledge,” said Murray, “neither the DNC nor the Podesta leaks involved Russia.” Oddly, Murray has not been questioned by any US official or journalist

What do you know about that. Wikileaks has pulled some good people into its web, notably Baltsar Garzon who ordered the arrest of Pinochet and hardly could be sympathetic to Clinton or Trump, it was on Obama’s watch he was forced off the bench in Spain via USA pressure for his ‘crusading’ against among other international crimes, the USA’s renditions and assassinations. Another misled soul sucked into the Wikileaks web is Craig Murray, who notably tied (the likely MI6 assassinated) Russian FSB anti-corruption officer Livenenko to uncovering the NATO export of heroin from Afghanistan:

My knowledge of all this comes from my time as British Ambassador in neighbouring Uzbekistan from 2002 until 2004. I stood at the Friendship Bridge at Termez in 2003 and watched the Jeeps with blacked-out windows bringing the heroin through from Afghanistan, en route to Europe. I watched the tankers of chemicals roaring into Afghanistan. Yet I could not persuade my country to do anything about it. Alexander Litvinenko – the former agent of the KGB, now the FSB, who died in London last November after being poisoned with polonium 210 – had suffered the same frustration over the same topic

This Murray guy cannot be ignored. Contrary to honorable, when Ferreira states…

As far as I can tell, there is virtually no even remotely compelling evidence that Rich leaked the DNC emails

…he’d had to ignore not only Murray but my drawing his attention to Murray:

There has been a growing ‘preponderance of the evidence’ the DNC mails were leaked by Rich. You can find that in the title ‘incompetent espionage and wikileaks’ at my blog, if interested

Because this follows is verbatim what I’d drawn propagandist Ferreira’s attention to; what more would one need to know to understand the Akamai Tree blog’s author has not only covered for The Coe cult’s Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions but has covered for the likely assassins of Seth Rich? Not only Craig Murray, but Seymour Hersh has weighed in and they’re the ones who truly can’t get any press:

Incompetent Espionage and Wikileaks

The entire sand-castle (a product of Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s imagination) the “Russians hacked the election” is finally washing away with an incoming tide. How this plays out is anyone’s guess.

The open question is, how the new information will be leveraged, if it were to actually break into the open widely, with the bad boy Trump essentially captured by the surreal evil that surrounds him. Other than pure evil (e.g. Pence), only a narcissist or a fool would ever desire to be president of this particular republic. In ‘The Donald’, we have both.

1 August 2017 an audio tape is leaked in which Seymour Hersh states the FBI knows it was Seth Rich leaked the DNC mails:

“What the [FBI] report says is that some time in late Spring… he makes contact with WikiLeaks, that’s in his computer. Anyway, they found what he had done is that he had submitted a series of documents — of emails, of juicy emails, from the DNC” -Seymour Hersh

On 9 August 2017 The Nation magazine publishes a column on a group of independent experts…

“Forensic investigators, intelligence analysts, system designers, program architects, and computer scientists of long experience and strongly credentialed are now producing evidence disproving the official version of key events last year”

…demonstrating the DNC mails were leaked, not hacked.

On 18 August 2017 Antiwar.com reports Congressman Dana  Rohrabacher has met with Assange concerning the DNC mails and [the article] further credibly suggests Assange is holding the DNC leak evidence hostage as a bargaining chip to possibly acquire a pardon for himself and leverage wikileaks into legitimacy with a President of the United States who at this point is owned by the USA’s intelligence agencies, a hare-brained scheme destined to fail. Assange & company waited too long.

But this would fit Julian Assange’s self-centered, persecuted-savior complex which never ceases to amaze, this guy (as well, Craig Murray) has allowed the idiots surrounding Trump to push us towards the brink with Russia, for months. All because Assange is tired of his embassy confinement in London, a circumstance that is entirely his own fault for the fact he didn’t have the self-discipline to keep his dick in his pants (whether Assange’s admitted intercourse was a case of rape or not.)

What’s more is, this blog pointed to strong circumstantial evidence it was Seth Rich leaked the DNC mails this past January, and recalling this, it still stretches the imagination a former UK ambassador would make an amateur espionage move worthy of a cub scout playing spy. But that’s what Craig Murray had done in the case of the DNC emails leaked to WikiLeaks.

Seymour Hersh states Seth Rich is the source of the DNC mails. Craig Murray states he had met with the source of the DNC mails. A + B = C:

Craig Murray met with Seth Rich

That Murray would be a high value target for American counter-intelligence to monitor for the reason of his high profile association with WikiLeaks is beyond obvious. For Murray then to state

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things”

…goes to the practically bizarre when coming from a former United Kingdom ambassador to Uzbekistan. The UK is little different to the USA in the case of embassies providing cover for spies; in which case Murray should at least have some rudimentary espionage understanding such as YOU DO NOT MEET YOUR SOURCE DIRECTLY WHEN YOU ARE A HIGH PROFILE TARGET OF YOUR ADVERSARY’S COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE HUNTING YOUR (in this case, WikiLeaks) SOURCE(S)

Then, we had WikiLeak’s Assange giving what amounts to a ‘Glomar’ ‘I will neither confirm or deny’ response concerning the murder (assassination) of Seth Rich after appearing to suggest Rich was the source of the DNC emails leak:

Beyond this, WikiLeaks offering a $20,000 reward for the solving of the Seth Rich murder is laughable, that’s what an American west coast upscale community would offer for the arrest of a serial killer of the neighborhood’s cats. Two million dollars might get two seconds’ attention of a corruptible counter-intelligence agent with knowledge of a professional hit on Seth Rich, twenty million might even net an inside the agency sucker willing to take the exceedingly high risk to one’s life (almost certain death) that would attend selling out an agency hit man for substantial lucre. In truth, the WikiLeaks reward offer amounted to little more than a tabloid publicity stunt.

Narcissism is a blinding thing; and a self-righteous narcissism is no exception. Ambassador Murray could have every good intention but on the face of it, he had seriously screwed up. Murray and WikiLeaks should have immediately come clean, there was little to lose. Seth Rich was the source, Murray had met with him, and much could have been gained by stating so; there would be nothing given up any intelligence agency involved did not already know. Not only would it have been the right thing to do, the only thing at stake here for Murray was a hit to ego & image.

Craig Murray stating ‘I had a serious lapse of professional judgement and this resulted in the death of Seth Rich’ would be the most responsible and newsworthy move WikiLeaks could have taken; to counter the CIA’s ‘the Russians hacked the DNC’ propaganda lie, in which there is much invested by the agency; and the consequent damage to relations with Russia, and growing threat to what little world peace yet exists, is immense. WikiLeaks should have done the right thing a long time ago and they have not. Why not? Because Assange and WikiLeaks believes Assange’s comfort is more important than world peace. What fucks. This is beyond inexcusable, it’s criminal. But for Murray, there’s more at stake here than just a hit to ego & image.

Murray’s likely role in the DNC leaks case? A personal meeting with Rich to confirm for WikiLeaks Seth Rich was a bona fide insider with authentic material prior to a WikiLeaks cash payment to Rich and arrangements completed for the mails transfer.

Now, it is a question of ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ release the evidence because WikiLeaks waited too long, and let the criminals surrounding Trump consolidate their power while investing deeply in the myth of the Russians hacked the election; a criminal cabal that will up the ante on the world stage to any level necessary to avoid accountability. WikiLeaks Idiots. WikiLeaks Morons.

Meanwhile, Murray subsequently barred from the United States (except that he applies for a visa, typically unnecessary for a British citizen) appears to have been, in a manner of speaking, a deep state message to Murray: ‘thank you very much for the lapse of judgement, we have taken full advantage with the assassination of Seth Rich and we won’t be requiring your services after this’ (he’d be smart to stay away.)

The really sticky problem for WikiLeaks in this scenario is, Seymour Hersh asserts in the recorded call WikiLeaks had paid Rich for the leaked documents, damaging or reducing to element of pretense WikiLeaks claims of journalism & providing rationale for deep state prosecutors & judges to find this had been straightforward espionage. But they won’t do it if the Rich-Murray meeting stays buried, a LOT is invested in ‘the Russians did it’ for the public consumption. If it DOES break open, Murray’s ‘goose is cooked.’ It’s now not only WikiLeaks problem in a larger sense, but Murray’s, whether he does or doesn’t admit the assassinated Seth Rich had been the DNC mails source.

Murray’s reputation? [and in this case, Ferreira’s] C’est la mort.

^ “JOINT ENABLERS”

Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) is the world leading event that brings together the global defence and security sector to innovate and share knowledge. DSEI represents the entire supply chain on an unrivalled scale

First of all, forgive the British their English. Secondly, I appreciate the opening provided in the term “Joint Enablers.”

DoD_Joint_Enabler - 1

The JECC [Joint Enabling Capabilities Command] and its three support elements — joint planning, joint communications and joint public affairs — have supported every major military operation since 9/11

Where this is headed or, the bottom line, is until ‘joint enabling’ schemes behind weapons related profit is taken out of the western economic engines blueprints, war will be the norm. Where people miss the mark in the social equation is, the relationship to military-industrial corporate boards. War is good for business and anything good for business is in the so-called ‘national interest’ and protecting the national interest is in the intelligence agencies work description; and every American military arm has its’ own professional intelligence apparatus.

That’s where social engineering through psyops (a military euphemism for civilian consumption is ‘public affairs‘) comes into play. The peoples of the west are as heavily propagandized, in their own way, as any peoples, anywhere. And so long as this is the rule, covert destabilization abroad, whether related to renewing, perpetrating or initiating conflicts, will pay out. And because this pays out, largely to military-industrial related corporate boards, but with considerable tax wealth also expended on the modern mercenaries euphemistically labeled ‘contractors’, there is a lot invested in maintaining what amounts to a ‘growth industry.’

Here’s the simple equation:

Psyops = generated fears = justifications in the public mind to spend tax revenue enriching weapons producers.

It really is that simple. Beyond replacing the no longer viable ‘spreading communism’ with a ‘spreading terrorist networks’ freaking people out to numbness and justifying intelligence agencies huge arms shipments supplying moderate® rebels™ generating conflict in Syria, example given, or the ‘humanitarian violence‘ sale to people who believed a classic psyop employed to convince Libya would be a better place without Gaddafi, other, larger psychological operations are employed to justify a non-stop military growth industry.

Reagan bought into ‘star wars’ and by comparison, Trump not buying (or attempting to not buy) into the current Russophobia, simply demonstrates whoever sits in the Oval Office makes no difference. The military-industrial corporate boards’ satellite, NATO, needs enemies more robust than any CIA created junior boogieman (e.g. al-Qaida) to justify the higher ticket weapons platforms, whether nuclear submarines, super-sonic bombers, super-carriers or modernized nuclear warheads, and the generals buy what the corporations demand and here’s why. The generals were mentored by the previous generation and the current generation will mentor the next generation, where the ‘afterlife’ (after life and career at the Pentagon) is at the boards of Raytheon, Chevron, and too many more of ‘the usual suspects’ to recall in any given moment. So, when the next generation of generals retire, they add a six figure ‘civilian life’ (military-industrial-corporate) salary to their six figure military retirement benefit. Some will be (others are already) pulling in five hundred thousand or more dollars a year.

The Globe analyzed the career paths of 750 of the highest ranking generals and admirals who retired during the last two decades and found that, for most, moving into what many in Washington call the “rent-a-general’’ business is all but irresistible.

From 2004 through 2008, 80 percent of retiring three- and four-star officers went to work as consultants or defense executives, according to the Globe analysis. That compares with less than 50 percent who followed that path a decade earlier, from 1994 to 1998.

In some years, the move from general staff to industry is a virtual clean sweep. Thirty-four out of 39 three- and four-star generals and admirals who retired in 2007 are now working in defense roles — nearly 90 percent.

And in many cases there is nothing subtle about what the generals have to sell — Martin’s firm is called The Four Star Group, for example. The revolving-door culture of Capitol Hill — where former lawmakers and staffers commonly market their insider knowledge to lobbying firms — is now pervasive at the senior rungs of the military leadership.

Among the Globe findings:

Dozens of retired generals employed by defense firms maintain Pentagon advisory roles, giving them unparalleled levels of influence and access to inside information on Department of Defense procurement plans…

Essentially, what we have in the preceding is a military-patrician mentor system of legalized, inter-generational bribery to benefit corporate boards, all propped up with psyops particularly aimed at congress.

In a macro-cosmic sense, this is what military-industrial ‘joint enablers’ are all about. And it’s why Russia is the generals’ enemy, it’s why Trump has been captured  by the generals and it’s why we have a general as Secretary of Defense, traditionally a civilian role, and it’s why we have a general as (Trump’s babysitter) Chief of Staff at the White House and it’s why, there you have it, Trump’s National Security Advisor is a general.

A post script note would be, the moron neo-liberals at the CIA played into the Pentagon’s hands with the ‘Russia hacked the election’ propaganda lie, the senior staff at Langley can’t back down from their overplayed hand and the generals don’t want to call out the CIA on their big lie because that lie will serve to make their corporate allies rich.
