Steele - 1

Robert David Steele’s “The truth at any cost lowers all other costs” is a fundamentally sound idea. However his “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is NOT a fundamentally sound idea. Furthermore, these preceding should be mutually exclusive concepts. Yet, Robert David Steele embraces both; concurrently claiming together with his ‘truth’ maxim, that he is ‘agnostic’ when it comes to associating with those persons whom Steele sees as advantageous to his agenda but otherwise Steele should be well aware promote known falsehoods. Case in point is Steele’s Public Intelligence blog hosting Robert Parry:

Steele_Parry2 - 1

Robert Steele had, admirably, declared on 19 January 2016, 9/11 (and other notable ‘terror’ events) a false-flag. How or why it took Steele, a trained spook, 15 years to arrive at this conclusion in public forum is tangential to this short essay; the real question here is, why does Steele promote, more than one full year on his public declaration, the pervasively false journalism of Robert Parry, where Parry is on record denying the obvious: World Trade Center Building 7 was blown to bits by professional demolition on the afternoon of 11 September 2001? This is a case of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my enemy.’

“He [Parry] also denies that WTC-7, a 47-story skyscraper that came down at 5:20 PM, seven hours after the Twin Towers were destroyed.  It fell in approximately 6.5 seconds, which is about the speed of free fall, a classic indication of a collapse that was brought about by a controlled demolition.  Many experts have found the pattern of collapse supports that conclusion.  A very nice video that demonstrates this to be the case, “This is an Orange”, refutes his [Parry’s] allegation that it was because the building had a large atrium that it collapsed as fast as free fall.  That ignores the fact that the entire building was extremely robust in construction, having been erected over two massive electrical generators providing back-up electricity for lower Manhattan.  This building obviously came down as the result of a controlled demolition, which is why so many in the 9/11 truth community emphasize WTC-7″

If this preceding should be the most visible angst or tension in Steele’s embrace of Robert Parry’s journalism with its ‘no lie is too big for my readers to swallow’, the most insidious lie Steele takes on with his embrace of Parry, is the rank constitutional revisionism Parry promotes when attacking the religious right’s false constitutional narrative with (a Parry specialty) alternative false narrative

“So, today’s Tea Partiers, “libertarians” and the Republican Right are not so much descendants of the Framers as they are heirs to the Anti-Federalists who tried to strangle the U.S. Constitution in its cradle. And a principal motive for this fierce opposition was a desire to protect slavery” -Robert Parry

…noting the anti-Federalists (North & South, slave-owning & non-slave-owning) were actually opposed to investing the new federal government with those royal powers they had been in rebellion over:

“I somehow doubt the anti-federalist 4th amendment concerning privacy in one’s papers had anything to do with propping up slavery, a given example of motivation in the anti-federalists’ actual intentions. Or other rights, for instance prohibition of a bill of attainder. Or the right to petition for redress. Or the right to confront your accuser. To name but a few provisions of the first through eighth amendments authored by the anti-federalists.

“If our “Bill of Rights” had been insisted upon by anti-federalists, and it most certainly was, the entire world, it would be implied by this specious and twisted revisionism coming from the left, is indebted to slaveholders for the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights inspired by the American Bill of Rights and certain of its provisions. Parry’s argument is beyond irony, it is patent nonsense. The fact is, slaveholders were a minority of the Americans with anti-federalist sentiment, and a minority in the geographic south as well, and this is where the left’s ‘equating anti-federalists with slavery’ crotch slams into the bicycle bar…

“Anti-federalism was by no means an exclusive southern phenomena related to a minority of slave owners but was a general angst of the new republic’s citizenry from Georgia to Maine…” -Ronald Thomas West

Having received high marks as adjunct professor of American constitutional law (Summer semester 2008, Johannes Gutenberg University at Mainz), requiring a certain knowledge of history in the subject, I will refer to folklore as a metaphor; if anything, the rank and file (common citizenry) anti-Federalists from Georgia to Maine, were firmly determined King George III should not be replaced with a King George Washington. That’s the short fact of the USA’s first ten amendments coming into existence, a political legacy of Thomas Paine.

Can Robert Steele’s “the truth at any cost lowers all other costs” bear witness to truth by hosting Robert Parry, and by extension, Robert Parry’s own patently revisionist constitutional history and stand up? Or, Does Robert Steele’s ‘lip servicing’ a return to, and upholding of the American constitution, amount to a crowd pleasing political fellatio? Steele should be socially savvy enough to understand there would be many placing faith in his [Steele’s] judgement might go on and uncritically extend their faith to the wider, dishonest work of Robert Parry, example given (I could provide even more blatant example of Steele associating with a dishonest journalist but that can wait, for the moment.) Maybe Robert Steele has simply taken on too much to properly vet those false flag journalists he is presently keeping company with. In any case, Steele is in a mini reflection of Trump’s circumstance; working with quislings.

Meanwhile, for Robert Steele’s edification, I will provide example of just how screwed up the spooks world of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ actually is; perhaps Steele is suffering espionage-centric myopia and needs the blinders removed. This follows had been originally posted at this blog on 29 November 2015, we can call it Mike Flynn’s ‘for 30 pieces of silver I’d have  sex with Erdogan in a Turkish bath’ alliance:

Whereas My Enemy is My Friend’s Favorite Fuck

NATO’s UPGRADED GLADIO is the subject of this article, where the western democracies enemy Islamic State is Turkey’s favorite fuck-buddy. Call it a play on the Middle East expression ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Only here it is ‘my enemy is my friend’s favorite fuck.’

This week, a result of a lawsuit filed personally by the president of Turkey (Edogan, image above), two courageous journalists were arrested and charged with treason, terrorism and  revealing state secrets. What had they done? Revealed Turkish intelligence had been caught by some over-zealous local gendarmes when running guns and ammunition to hard-line Islamist militia with close ties to al-Qaida:

Now, if that were not enough concerning NATO member Turkey’s efforts in ‘the war on terror’, we can back up a mere five weeks and understand Erdogan’s paranoia of free press; it was in October, 2015, two members of Turkey’s parliament revealed it was Erdogan’s intelligence services had arranged the 2013 Sarin gas attack that had killed over 1,300 Syrians:

Zaman2.jpg - 1

Of course this had been blamed on Basher al-Assad by Hussein Obama:

“The evidence is overwhelming that the Assad regime used such weapons on August 21st. U.N. inspectors gave a clear accounting that advanced rockets fired large quantities of sarin gas at civilians. These rockets were fired from a regime-controlled neighborhood and landed in opposition neighborhoods” -Barack Obama

I guess we could call that one ‘my friend fucks my enemy for me.’

And, of course, this past week has been all about satellite images and Russian warplane video of Islamic State tankers exporting oil via… you might have guessed it, Turkey. Well, I guess the warplane images indicate ISIS ‘suddenly not shipping quite as much oil.’ The USA hadn’t even noticed these targets prior to the Russians hitting them, I suppose our religious right generals at the Pentagon would call that ‘sexual abstinence’

But this next guy would seem to think he’s been fucked in the ass over oil by Russia and that must be why Turkey ambushed a Russian bomber, his name is Hakan Fidan and he’s Erdogans’s intelligence chief:

Hakan Fidan rap sheet: Murdered more that 1,300 Syrians with sarin gas, blamed it on Assad; runs guns and ammunition to Islamic State; imports Islamic State oil to Turkey from Syria and Iraq; accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count; a close Erdogan confidant

Now, let’s consider what Vladimir Putin had to say in relation to Turkey and by implication its intelligence services chief Hakan Fidan:

“We assume that the top political leadership of Turkey might not know anything about this [illegal oil trade]. Hard to believe, but it is theoretically possible. But if the top political leadership [in Turkey] doesn’t know anything about this, let them find out. I can state that there may be some elements of corruption, secret dealing, they should sort it out” -Vladimir Putin

I doubt Putin was in a good humor when he stated the preceding but his use of irony under the circumstance indicates he’s not in any mood to be fucked with; and furthermore indicates Turkey is going to be fucked but good.

Now, more or less ‘sticking’ with oil, lets look at some sound assumptions; our several intelligence agencies answer to the executive in the western democratic model. It follows, they report to the those same democracies bosses. So, what has Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND or German CIA) boss Gerhard Schindler been telling Angela Merkel? That Assad gassed his own people? Sorry but the BND reputation for intelligence in the region doesn’t allow for pigs growing wings:

Revelations over spying activities by the German foreign intelligence office Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) are undermining relations between Germany and Turkey at an already difficult time. According to a document acquired by Der Spiegel, the BND has been systematically wiretapping its NATO ally Turkey since at least 2009…

voyeur |voiˈyər, vwä-|
noun
a person who gains sexual pleasure from watching others when they are naked or engaged in sexual activity.
• a person who enjoys seeing the pain or distress of others.
DERIVATIVES

voyeuristic |ˌvoiyəˈristik, ˌvwäyə-| adjective.

It’s safe to assume Angela Merkel knows whose fucking who when it comes to Turkey gassing Syrians:

The report quotes a US intelligence agent as saying: “No Western intelligence service has as good sources in Syria as the BND does.”

A member of the BND told the newspaper that the intelligence service was “proud of the important contribution [it] is making to the overthrow of the Assad regime.”

Gerhard Schindler, boss of German intelligence; accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

Now, when it comes to Islamic State doing a billion dollar oil business with Turkey, do you suppose the Germans, Angela Merkel particularly, could claim she ‘didn’t know’? After all, according to a United States Defense Intelligence Agency report, the whole idea of “the western powers” fostering the rise of Islamic State was to bugger Assad. Who’re “the western powers” other than Germany? France and its multinational Total Oil Company make a fine next step into the bordello where your enemy is your friend’s favorite fuck:

Bernard Bajolet, boss of Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure (French CIA), accessory to murder of 130 Parisians and accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

The French company has ignored threats from the central Iraqi government in Baghdad and signed oil deals directly with the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, where crude reserves are plentiful and contract terms more attractive than in the south.

“This success confirms Total’s exploration strategy in Iraq,” said Marc Blaizot, senior vice president for exploration at Total

Now, what will French intelligence chief Bernard Bajolet have told France’s President Hollande about Kurdistan having to do with ‘my enemy is my friend’s favorite fuck?’

Well, according to oilprice.com, ‘Kurdistan’ is a deliberately planned for, broken away piece of Iraq where:

“It is important to understand that Northern Iraq is a major market for Turkish exports and that oil and gas from coming Iraqi Kurdish territory is moved on to worldwide markets through Turkey,” Jellyfish President Michael Bagley told Oilprice.com.

“From a financial and logistical standpoint, an Ankara-Erbil marriage is one of exceptional convenience. From our standpoint, Northern Iraq stands to be one of the next great investment areas in the Middle East, and so far, the KRG [kurdish regional government] has managed to out-play Baghdad in the natural resources and investment game”

AND THIS

Exxon-al_Qaida_deal.jpg - 1

Ninewa today is one of the last bastions of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and its blessing of the KRG-ExxonMobil deal is significant in terms of security

Did oilprice.com just say “al-Qaida in Iraq” gave a ‘security’ blessing to a Kurdish Regional Government deal with an oil company? I believe they did. Who is ‘al-Qaida in Iraq’ these days? Why it’s been recently re-branded as Islamic State. Huh. We could call this one ‘my friends who fuck my enemies who’re my friends.’ Or something like that.

alex-younger_MI6

Alex Younger, head of MI6 (British CIA), accessory to the murder of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

So, how does that all fit into Turkey is a one billion dollar partner in Islamic State oil exports and no one says anything? Let’s ask the Brits:

The attorney general was consulted about Monday’s decision. Karmy-Jones told the court in pre-trial hearings that Gildo had worked with Jabhat al-Nusra, a “proscribed group considered to be al-Qaida in Syria”. He was photographed standing over dead bodies with his finger pointing to the sky

Well, it seems British intelligence had to ask the British courts not to prosecute because MI6 had been funneling arms to the very Syria al-Qaida branch the returning jihadi had fought with. We could call this one ‘I won’t let you fuck my terrorist friend because he helps me to fuck people I like to see fucked.’ Considering this, I kind of doubt we’d get a  straight answer concerning British Petroleum activities in Turkey, you think?

Our downstream business in Turkey dates back to the 1940s and now includes retail fuels, lubricants and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). We have over 600 dealer-owned and operated fuel stations throughout the country, as well as fuels and LPG terminals and storage facilities. ATAS, the former refinery and currently the largest fuels terminal in the Eastern Mediterranean, is 68% owned by BP. One of our most modern and high-tech lubricants plants is located in Gemlik

But David Cameron most certainly has a report on his desk pointing to BP had exported Kurdish oil via Turkey. Is British spy chief Alex Younger updating him on any BP related Islamic State exports? That’s his  job. Or maybe BP is informing Cameron direct, it’s not like his government keeps the multinational at arms length:

The Foreign Office, for example, held its annual “BP high level dinner” last July, “to strengthen the strategic relationship between BP and the FCO on global economic and energy issues”, according to heavily redacted documents marked “sensitive” and “restricted”. All the top FCO directors from the head of the diplomatic service down through the directors of the main regions, to the heads of the FCO economic, strategy, and “prosperity” units, were on the attendees list

I’ll bet Cameron accused Assad of gassing his own people too:

Cameron said he took “full and personal responsibility for the decision to recall parliament, for the decision to take a strong and principled stand against the gassing of children in Syria, and I take full responsibility for putting forward as generous a motion I could, to bring as many people with me as I could. Everyone who voted has to live with the way that they voted”

He actually meant to say ‘it’s easy to fuck ordinary Syrians [who Erdogan’s intelligence people gassed] when people suck up to my ‘Assad did it’ media lies’ (at The Guardian, no less.)

AND FINALLY

Airstrike_Leaflet

The ‘special relationship.’ How is it the Pentagon gives the [only just very recently noticed] Islamic State oil-tanker truck drivers 45 minutes warning before blowing up [a few, token] trucks delivering oil to Turkey?

Do you suppose the CIA’s John Brennan is actually concerned about civilian casualties? That doesn’t seem to concern his boss, ‘Commander-in-Chief’ Obama, in the case of drones.

ObamaPick

Serial killer of nations; cold-blooded killer of too many Syrians and Iraqis to count

I do believe the actual reason is linked to the screenshot of the article on delivery of arms to hard-line Islamists at the beginning of this essay; where in this related story…

Testimony from gendarmerie officers in court documents reviewed by Reuters allege that rocket parts, ammunition and semi-finished mortar shells were carried in trucks accompanied by state intelligence agency (MIT) officials more than a year ago to parts of Syria under Islamist control

…it is intelligence assets are the drivers of the trucks loaded with weapons delivered into Syria. One loaded Islamic State tanker truck driven out of Syria almost certainly out-values, by far, any truckload of weapons driven in. It follows, you don’t bomb your allied fuck-buddies’ fuckers who do the driving. Call it a matter of being discreet: ‘we won’t butt-fuck our fuck-buddies fuckers outside of the barracks.’

Meanwhile (this update comes precisely one day since I’d penned the preceding), Erdogan’s government henchmen have arrested and charged the police officials who’d initiated the investigation into illegal weapons transfers to jihadists in Syria:

Maj. Gen. Aydın and retired Col. Cihangiroğlu were arrested on charges of “obtaining confidential information for purposes of political or military espionage; disclosing confidential information pertaining to state security for espionage purposes; attempting to destroy or prevent the government of the Republic of Turkey from functioning; founding or leading an armed terrorist organization.”

Brig. Gen. Celepoğlu was arrested on charges of “attempting to destroy or prevent the government of the Republic of Turkey from functioning; founding or leading an armed terrorist organization.”

Two journalists from the Cumhuriyet daily, Editor-in-Chief Can Dündar and the Ankara representative Erdem Gül were arrested last week on similar charges after publishing footage that showed the arms [trucks] were carrying guns, contrary to earlier government claims that they were transporting humanitarian aid:

^ Erdogan’s ‘humanitarian aid

At the end of the day, if you’re a honest cop doing your job but cross Pasha Erdogan’s dirty dealings with ISIS and al-Qaida, the consequence is simple: “You’re fucked”

Don’t like this shit? Here’s a letter to copy, paste and send plus the email addresses of those people who’ll be most butt-hurt at having to do something about it: Send a Letter

*On behalf of the people of Paris*

16 December 2015 update: A Turkish member of parliament who spoke to Russia’s RT News about the export of sarin gas from Turkey to Syria has been charged with treason:

https://www.rt.com/news/326084-erdem-rt-interview-treason/

Note on the original post: In March 2016 Erdogan had ‘Today’s Zaman’ newspaper shut down, killing the links to the related stories. However  anticipating this, I saved screenshots and text of the Zaman article on Turkey supplying the sarin gas used at Ghouta, Syria in August 2013. That information is preserved HERE.

Meanwhile over at Jihad Watch:

Turkey Provides Military Equipment to ISIS

  • An ISIS commander told The Washington Post on August 12, 2014: “Most of the fighters who joined us in the beginning of the war came via Turkey, and so did our equipment and supplies.”
  • Kemal Kiliadaroglu, head of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), produced a statement from the Adana Office of the Prosecutor on October 14, 2014 maintaining that Turkey supplied weapons to terror groups. He also produced interview transcripts from truck drivers who delivered weapons to the groups. According to Kiliadaroglu, the Turkish government claims the trucks were for humanitarian aid to the Turkmen, but the Turkmen said no humanitarian aid was delivered.
  • According to CHP Vice President Bulent Tezcan, three trucks were stopped in Adana for inspection on January 19, 2014. The trucks were loaded with weapons in Esenboga Airport in Ankara. The drivers drove the trucks to the border, where a MIT agent was supposed to take over and drive the trucks to Syria to deliver materials to ISIS and groups in Syria. This happened many times. When the trucks were stopped, MIT agents tried to keep the inspectors from looking inside the crates. The inspectors found rockets, arms, and ammunitions.
  • Cumhuriyet reports that Fuat Avni, a preeminent Twitter user who reported on the December 17th corruption probe, that audio tapes confirm that Turkey provided financial and military aid to terrorist groups associated with Al Qaeda on October 12, 2014. On the tapes, Erdogan pressured the Turkish Armed Forces to go to war with Syria. Erdogan demanded that Hakan Fidan, the head of Turkey’s National Intelligence Agency (MIT), come up with a justification for attacking Syria.
  • Hakan Fidan told Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Yasar Guler, a senior defense official, and Feridun Sinirlioglu, a senior foreign affairs official: “If need be, I’ll send 4 men into Syria. I’ll formulate a reason to go to war by shooting 8 rockets into Turkey; I’ll have them attack the Tomb of Suleiman Shah.”
  • Documents surfaced on September 19th, 2014 showing that the Saudi Emir Bender Bin Sultan financed the transportation of arms to ISIS through Turkey. A flight leaving Germany dropped off arms in the Etimesgut airport in Turkey, which was then split into three containers, two of which were given to ISIS and one to Gaza.

Turkey Provided Transport and Logistical Assistance to ISIS Fighters

  • According to Radikal on June 13, 2014, Interior Minister Muammar Guler signed a directive: “According to our regional gains, we will help al-Nusra militants against the branch of PKK terrorist organization, the PYD, within our borders…Hatay is a strategic location for the mujahideen crossing from within our borders to Syria. Logistical support for Islamist groups will be increased, and their training, hospital care, and safe passage will mostly take place in Hatay…MIT and the Religious Affairs Directorate will coordinate the placement of fighters in public accommodations.”
  • The Daily Mail reported on August 25, 2014 that many foreign militants joined ISIS in Syria and Iraq after traveling through Turkey, but Turkey did not try to stop them. This article describes how foreign militants, especially from the UK, go to Syria and Iraq through the Turkish border. They call the border the “Gateway to Jihad.” Turkish army soldiers either turn a blind eye and let them pass, or the jihadists pay the border guards as little as $10 to facilitate their crossing.
  • Britain’s Sky News obtained documents showing that the Turkish government has stamped passports of foreign militants seeking to cross the Turkey border into Syria to join ISIS.
  • The BBC interviewed villagers, who claim that buses travel at night, carrying jihadists to fight Kurdish forces in Syria and Iraq, not the Syrian Armed Forces.
  • A senior Egyptian official indicated on October 9, 2014 that Turkish intelligence is passing satellite imagery and other data to ISIS.

Turkey Provided Training to ISIS Fighters

  • CNN Turk reported on July 29, 2014 that in the heart of Istanbul, places like Duzce and Adapazari, have become gathering spots for terrorists. There are religious orders where ISIS militants are trained. Some of these training videos are posted on the Turkish ISIS propaganda website takvahaber.net. According to CNN Turk, Turkish security forces could have stopped these developments if they had wanted to.
  • Turks who joined an affiliate of ISIS were recorded at a public gathering in Istanbul, which took place on July 28, 2014.
  • A video shows an ISIS affiliate holding a prayer/gathering in Omerli, a district of Istanbul. In response to the video, CHP Vice President, MP Tanrikulu submitted parliamentary questions to the Minister of the Interior, Efkan Ala, asking questions such as, “Is it true that a camp or camps have been allocated to an affiliate of ISIS in Istanbul? What is this affiliate? Who is it made up of? Is the rumor true that the same area allocated for the camp is also used for military exercises?”
  • Kemal Kiliçdaroglu warned the AKP government not to provide money and training to terror groups on October 14, 2014. He said, “It isn’t right for armed groups to be trained on Turkish soil. You bring foreign fighters to Turkey, put money in their pockets, guns in their hands, and you ask them to kill Muslims in Syria. We told them to stop helping ISIS. Ahmet Davutoglu asked us to show proof. Everyone knows that they’re helping ISIS.” (See HERE and HERE.)
  • According to Jordanian intelligence, Turkey trained ISIS militants for special operations.

Turkey Offers Medical Care to ISIS Fighters

  • An ISIS commander told the Washington Post on August 12, 2014, “We used to have some fighters — even high-level members of the Islamic State — getting treated in Turkish hospitals.”
  • Taraf reported on October 12, 2014 that Dengir Mir Mehmet Firat, a founder of the AKP, said that Turkey supported terrorist groups and still supports them and treats them in hospitals. “In order to weaken the developments in Rojova (Syrian Kurdistan), the government gave concessions and arms to extreme religious groups…the government was helping the wounded. The Minister of Health said something such as, it’s a human obligation to care for the ISIS wounded.”
  • According to Taraf, Ahmet El H, one of the top commanders at ISIS and Al Baghdadi’s right hand man, was treated at a hospital in Sanliurfa, Turkey, along with other ISIS militants. The Turkish state paid for their treatment. According to Taraf’s sources, ISIS militants are being treated in hospitals all across southeastern Turkey. More and more militants have been coming in to be treated since the start of airstrikes in August. To be more specific, eight ISIS militants were transported through the Sanliurfa border crossing; these are their names: “Mustafa A., Yusuf El R., Mustafa H., Halil El M., Muhammet El H., Ahmet El S., Hasan H., [and] Salim El D.”

Turkey Supports ISIS Financially Through Purchase of Oil

  • On September 13, 2014, The New York Times reported on the Obama administration’s efforts to pressure Turkey to crack down on ISIS extensive sales network for oil. James Phillips, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, argues that Turkey has not fully cracked down on ISIS’s sales network because it benefits from a lower price for oil, and that there might even be Turks and government officials who benefit from the trade.
  • Fehim Tastekin wrote in Radikal on September 13, 2014 about illegal pipelines transporting oil from Syria to nearby border towns in Turkey. The oil is sold for as little as 1.25 liras per liter. Tastekin indicated that many of these illegal pipelines were dismantled after operating for 3 years, once his article was published.
  • According to Diken and OdaTV, David Cohen, a Justice Department official, says that there are Turkish individuals acting as middlemen to help sell ISIS’s oil through Turkey.
  • On October 14, 2014, a German Parliamentarian from the Green Party accused Turkey of allowing the transportation of arms to ISIS over its territory, as well as the sale of oil.

Turkey Assists ISIS Recruitment

  • Kemal Kiliadaroglu claimed on October 14, 2014 that ISIS offices in Istanbul and Gaziantep are used to recruit fighters. On October 10, 2014, the mufti of Konya said that 100 people from Konya joined ISIS 4 days ago. (See HERE and HERE.)
  • OdaTV reports that Takva Haber serves as a propaganda outlet for ISIS to recruit Turkish-speaking individuals in Turkey and Germany. The address where this propaganda website is registered corresponds to the address of a school called Irfan Koleji, which was established by Ilim Yayma Vakfi, a foundation that was created by Erdogan and Davutoglu, among others. It is thus claimed that the propaganda site is operated from the school of the foundation started by AKP members.
  • Minister of Sports, Suat Kilic, an AKP member, visited Salafi jihadists who are ISIS supporters in Germany. The group is known for reaching out to supporters via free Quran distributions and raising funds to sponsor suicide attacks in Syria and Iraq by raising money.
  • OdaTV released a video allegedly showing ISIS militants riding a bus in Istanbul.

Turkish Forces Are Fighting Alongside ISIS

  • On October 7, 2014, IBDA-C, a militant Islamic organization in Turkey, pledged support to ISIS. A Turkish friend who is a commander in ISIS suggests that Turkey is “involved in all of this” and that “10,000 ISIS members will come to Turkey.” A Huda-Par member at the meeting claims that officials criticize ISIS but in fact sympathize with the group (Huda-Par, the “Free Cause Party”, is a Kurdish Sunni fundamentalist political party). BBP member claims that National Action Party (MHP) officials are close to embracing ISIS. In the meeting, it is asserted that ISIS militants come to Turkey frequently to rest, as though they are taking a break from military service. They claim that Turkey will experience an Islamic revolution, and Turks should be ready for jihad. (See HERE and HERE.)
  • Seymour Hersh maintains in the London Review of Books that ISIS conducted sarin attacks in Syria, and that Turkey was informed. “For months there had been acute concern among senior military leaders and the intelligence community about the role in the war of Syria’s neighbors, especially Turkey. Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was known to be supporting the al-Nusra Front, a jihadist faction among the rebel opposition, as well as other Islamist rebel groups. ‘We knew there were some in the Turkish government,’ a former senior US intelligence official, who has access to current intelligence, told me, ‘who believed they could get Assad’s nuts in a vice by dabbling with a sarin attack inside Syria – and forcing Obama to make good on his red line threat.”
  • On September 20, 2014, Demir Celik, a Member of Parliament with the people’s democratic party (HDP) claimed that Turkish Special Forces fight with ISIS.

Turkey Helped ISIS in Battle for Kobani

  • Anwar Moslem, Mayor of Kobani, said on September 19, 2014: “Based on the intelligence we got two days before the breakout of the current war, trains full of forces and ammunition, which were passing by north of Kobane, had an-hour-and-ten-to-twenty-minute-long stops in these villages: Salib Qaran, Gire Sor, Moshrefat Ezzo. There are evidences, witnesses, and videos about this. Why is ISIS strong only in Kobane’s east? Why is it not strong either in its south or west? Since these trains stopped in villages located in the east of Kobane, we guess they had brought ammunition and additional force for the ISIS.” In the second article on September 30, 2014, a CHP delegation visited Kobani, where locals claimed that everything from the clothes ISIS militants wear to their guns comes from Turkey. (See HERE and HERE.)
  • Released by Nuhaber, a video shows Turkish military convoys carrying tanks and ammunition moving freely under ISIS flags in the Cerablus region and Karkamis border crossing (September 25, 2014). There are writings in Turkish on the trucks.
  • Salih Muslim, PYD head, claims that 120 militants crossed into Syria from Turkey between October 20th and 24th, 2014.
  • According to an op-ed written by a YPG commander in The New York Times on October 29, 2014, Turkey allows ISIS militants and their equipment to pass freely over the border.
  • Diken reported, “ISIS fighters crossed the border from Turkey into Syria, over the Turkish train tracks that delineate the border, in full view of Turkish soldiers. They were met there by PYD fighters and stopped.”
  • A Kurdish commander in Kobani claims that ISIS militants have Turkish entry stamps on their passports.
  • Kurds trying to join the battle in Kobani are turned away by Turkish police at the Turkey-Syrian border.
  • OdaTV released a photograph of a Turkish soldier befriending ISIS militants.

This article, reprinted with the consent of the author, has been banned from a wide variety of ‘progressive’ news outlets. It is, in my opinion, one of the most important pieces of information people should have absorbed. Dr Bramhall’s reporting on this subject is independently consistent with my own research on ‘color revolutions’ (my appended observations follow Dr Bramhall’s article.)

The CIA and Nonviolent Resistance

One important aspect of the “diversity of tactics” debate (i.e. the debate whether to be exclusively nonviolent) in the Occupy movement relates to mounting evidence of the role CIA and Pentagon-funded foundations and think tanks play in funding and promoting nonviolent resistance training.

The two major US foundations promoting nonviolence, both overseas and domestically, are the Albert Einstein Institution (AEI) and the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC). Both receive major corporate and/or government funding. The latter comes mainly through CIA “pass-through” foundations. While the ICNC is funded mainly by the private fortune of hedge fund multimillionaire (junk bond king Michael Milken’s second in command) Peter Ackerman, the AEI has received funding from the Rand Corporation and the Department of Defense, as well as various CIA-linked foundations, such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the International Republican Institute (IRI), the US Institute of Peace and the Ford Foundation (read here on The Ford Foundation and the CIA), which all have a long history of collaborating with the Pentagon, the State Department and the CIA in destabilizing governments unfriendly to US interests.

This is a strategy Frances Stonor Saunders outlines in her pivotal Cultural Cold War: The CIA and the World of Arts and Letters. According to Sanders, right wing corporate-backed foundations and the CIA have been funding the non-communist left since the late sixties, in the hope of drowning out and marginalizing the voice of more militant leftists.

Gene Sharp, the Fervent Anticommunist

Much of this debate focuses around the American godfather of nonviolent resistance, Gene Sharp, the founder and director of the Albert Einstein Institution. Sharp’s handbooks on nonviolent protest were widely disseminated in the Eastern Europe color revolutions, in the Arab spring revolutions and in the Occupy movement in the US (see Nonviolence in the Service of Imperialism). Unfortunately Sharp has become a decoy in this debate, deflecting attention from the larger question of whether the US government is actively financing and promoting the work of the AEI, the ICIC and other groups that promote nonviolent resistance, to the exclusion of other militant tactics. The question is extremely important, in my view, because it possibly explains the rigid and dogmatic attitude in the US progressive movement regarding nonviolence.

Is Military-Intelligence Funding Compatible with Progressive Politics?

The institutional nonviolence clique has cleverly refocused the debate on whether Sharp, who is eighty-three, is a CIA agent and whether he actively participated in US-funded destabilization efforts in Tunisia, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Iran and elsewhere that resulted in so-called “Arab Spring” revolutions. The obvious answer to both questions is no. The more important question is why the alternative media and “official” progressive movement embrace Sharp unconditionally as a fellow progressive without a careful look at his past or his ideological beliefs. Sharp has never made any secret of his fervent anticommunist views. He also makes no secret of the funding he has received from the Defense Department; the Rand Corporation; CIA-linked foundations, such as NED, the IRI and the US Institute of Peace; and George Soros’s Open Society Institute. All this information is readily available from the AEI website.

Thierry Meyssan’s 2005 Expose

The current brouhaha over Gene Sharp was first triggered by an article, The Albert Einstein Institution: Nonviolence According to the CIA, Thierry Meyssan published on Voltaire Net in October 2005. Meyssan, a French intellectual and political activist, first gained international prominence in 2002 by publishing a French best seller entitled L’effroyable imposteur (English title: The Big Lie). The book claimed that the 9-11 attacks were directed by right-wingers in the U.S. government and the military industrial complex, who were seeking justification for military action in Afghanistan and Iraq. Meyssan’s 2005 article on the Albert Einstein Institutes enumerates a long list of collaborations between Sharp and opposition groups receiving covert US support in campaigns to bring down Asian and Eastern European governments unfriendly to US interests.

Iran and Venezuela’s Denunciation of Sharp

The article was widely reposted on leftist and libertarian websites. In 2008, it resulted in a formal denunciation of Sharp by the Iranian government and Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, both targets of AEI destabilization activities. In June 2008, Stephen Zunes, chair of the Academic Advisory Committee of the Peter Ackerman’s International Center for Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC) issued a rebuttal, Sharp Attack Unwarranted, in Foreign Policy in Focus. The latter is an on-line magazine of the Institute for Policy Studies, where Zunes serves as Middle East Editor. The article was simultaneously reprinted in the Huffington Post.

Zunes subsequently persuaded Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Code Pink and other high profile progressives to help launch an on-line petition defending Sharp’s progressive credentials. However, as numerous critics point out, he never addressed Meyssan’s most important concerns: the military/intelligence backgrounds of many of the Albert Einstein Institution’s (AEI’s) directors and advisory board members; their documented collaboration, together with Sharp, with opposition groups responsible for the “color” revolutions in Eastern Europe; and their work with Venezuelan opposition groups in an effort to topple president Hugo Chavez.

AEI ties to Department of State and Military-Intelligence Complex

Australian researcher Michael Barker, Canadian activist Stephen Gowans and CIA watchers wrote detailed critiques defending Meyssan’s 2005 expose. Barker’s rebuttal is entitled Sharp Reflection Warranted. Barker’s main argument is that the problem of elite manipulation of ostensibly progressive groups isn’t at all new. He also points readers to excellent links regarding collaboration between the CIA and the Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and others.

Gowans argues that Zunes, a paid adviser to the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC), is hardly a neutral or objective party, given his involvement with Peter Ackerman and the ICNC. Ackerman, hardly the progressive peace activist, is a Wall Street investment banker, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and head of Freedom House. The latter, according to Noam Chomsky (in Manufacturing Consent), is “interlocked” with the CIA and a “virtual propaganda arm of the (US) government and international right wing.” According to Louis Proyect, Ackerman is also on the advisory board of the ultraconservative Cato Institute’s Project on Social Security Choice. Not surprisingly, this group strongly advocates for privatizing Social Security.

A Close Look At Sharp’s Past

There is no question that Thierry Meyssan’s 2005 article on Gene Sharp’s extensive links to the US military-intelligence complex is one of the most important exposes of the 21st century. Its only weaknesses is Meyssan’s failure to cite many of his references. What follows is the best publicly verifiable chronology of Sharp’s life I could come up with (most comes from Meyssan’s 2005 article with sources added):

1953 – conscientious objector during Korean War, imprisoned for nine months for refusing to report for alternative duty. Imprisoned for refusing to fight in Korean War (People and The Progressive).

1973 – publishes The Politics of Nonviolent Action (1973) with an introduction by Thomas C. Shelling. Shelling was a well known economist and professor of foreign affairs, national security, nuclear strategy, and arms control. After working with US ambassador Averel Harriman in Paris in 1948 to implement the Marshall Plan, Shelling had a fifty year affiliation with the Rand Corporation (US military think tank) and is widely credited as the theoretician behind military escalation in Vietnam.

1983 – founds the Albert Einstein Institution (AEI) in Boston, with the assistance of Major General Edward B Atkeson, who was on the first AEI advisory board. The AEI website identifies Atkeson as Senior Fellow at the Institute of Land Warfare Association of the US Army. According to the CIA website, during the 1980s Atkeson was also a National Intelligence Officer for General Purpose Forces.

1985 – publishes a book entitled Making Europe Unconquerable: the Potential of Civilian-base Deterrence and Defense. The second edition includes a preface by George Kennan, historian and State Department senior diplomat whose writings influenced Truman in the creation of the Truman Doctrine. Kennan is viewed as the father of the US foreign policy of “containment” (by force) of Soviet expansion.

1986, 1988 and 1989 – travels to Israel/Palestine to bolster support for the Palestinian Center for the History of Non-Violence, founded in 1983 by one of Sharp’s disciple. It’s a matter of public record that Sharp met with Colonel Reuvan Gal, who directed the Israel Defense Force (IDF) Psychological Action Division. Meyssan claims the two conspired to create a split in the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) by creating a dissident “nonviolent” group. Gal and Sharp claim the purpose of their meetings were to devise ways to dissuade IDF commanders from using tanks and excessive military force against Palestinian settlers (see The Jeruselem Fund, Mubarak Awad,  and Nonviolence).

1987 – receives funding from the US Institute of Peace to host seminars instructing US allies on defense based on civil disobedience. By law, the US Institute of Peace integrates elements of US intelligence.

1989 – assists Colonel Robert Helvey in training anticommunist Burmese opposition groups concerned about the growing strength of the Burmese Communist Party. The AEI website refers to Helvey as a retired US military officer and ex-military attaché in Burma. He was actually a thirty year veteran of the Defense Intelligence Agency with extensive experience in overseeing clandestine and subversive operations in Southeast Asia (see Guerrillas Without Guns Col Helvey Weaponizing Nonviolence and Peace Magazine Archive). Following his retirement from the Defense Intelligence Agency, Helvey has been board member and president of the Albert Einstein Institution.

1990 – with his AEI team (according to AEI website), assists Lithuanian opposition leaders in organizing popular resistance against the Red Army. According to the website, the AEI also did trainings with anticommunist opposition groups in Tibet, Estonia, and Belarus.

1998 – travels, with Helvey, to Eastern Europe to train Otpor, a group of Serbian youth opposed to Slobodan Milosevic and Europe’s last communist government. Milosevic was immensely popular with Serbian people for standing up to NATO and for his generous social policies. The trainings were funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). (See 2000 New York Times interview with NED officer Paul B. McCarthy).

2003 – assists, with AEI staff, in the launch of the “Rose Revolution” in Georgia (see The Secrets of the Georgian Coup).

2004 – Helvey and other AEI members meet with the Ukrainian resistance in Kiev (see Mowat’s Coup d’État in Disguise).

2003-2004 – travels, with Helvey and other AEI team members to Venezuela to meet with wealthy Venezuelan opposition leaders, following the failed 2002 CIA-sponsored coup against Chavez. The AEI advises them in organizing a recall referendum against Chavez. They also train the leaders of Súmate during the August 2004 demonstrations and assist in the formulation of “Operation Guarimba”, a series of often-violent street blockades that result in several deaths. According to an analysis published by Strategic Forecasting (Stratfor), Venezuelan student leaders traveled to Belgrade in 2005 to meet with representatives of AEI-trained OTPOR/CANVAS, before traveling to Boston to consult directly with Sharp himself.

Fast Forward to the “Arab Spring”

In the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011, Sharp and the Albert Einstein Institution (AEI) seem to have handed the baton to his disciple Peter Ackerman. It was Ackerman who conducted nonviolence trainings in Cairo and Tunisia in 2009-2010 (see Foreign Policy Journal and New York Times).

As others have documented elsewhere, the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa were neither spontaneous nor indigenous. Many of the individuals and groups who helped organize them received training (in the US) sponsored by the State Department and CIA-linked democracy manipulating foundations (see Tony Cartalucci’s Soros Celebrates the Fall of Tunisia). The New York Times lends further credibility to these claims in their April 2011 U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings.

Ronald Thomas West’s appended notes:

CIA methods of discrediting excellent work such as Dr Bramhall’s above article includes [but is not limited to] leaning hard on the better known progressive sites [alternet killed Dr Bramhalls’ article, probably faced with funding threats] not to run the pieces while providing other so-called ‘alternative’ news sites where the articles CAN be run but subjected to guilt by association and other method of discrediting the information. For instance ‘Daily Censored’ picked up and ran this article but concurrently ran an article supporting David Icke’s ‘lizard DNA’ theories [to associate Dr Bramhall’s work with nut jobs.] It then becomes the dilemma of the author whether to publish in less than optimal circumstance or not get the information a wider audience (beyond one’s personal blog.)

Since Dr Bramhalls’ article had been originally published, the classic ‘color revolution’ model based on U.S, Department of State (Siamese twin to CIA) or ‘the Sharp method’ had been employed (again) in Ukraine.

Other method of disinformation is noted in regards to alternative media’s Robert Parry has misreported events in Ukraine (myself not being the only one to notice), effectively pointing away from actions reflecting the role of ‘covert operations’ intelligence. Now, it can’t hurt (truth) to demonstrate the consequence of Gene Sharp suborning Ghandi’s model to utilitarian ‘Realpolitic’ sans morality. What Robert Parry (and his associate Ray McGovern) inexcusably fail to report in relation to Ukraine is, not only did Department of State/CIA aligned NGO’s organize and train the Maidan protesters based on Gene Sharp’s nonviolence model; the CIA operations sector subsequently organized the deaths of the same when they trained and imported the snipers who murdered them. A conservative Polish Member of European Parliament, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, states in an interview the Maidan snipers were trained in Poland in a joint operation with USA intelligence services:

Question: “[you are] a supporter of the thesis it was a CIA operation?”

Answer: “Maidan was also our operation. The snipers were trained in Poland”

The original interview transcript in Polish language HERE

A reasonable English language summary of the interview by PRAVDA:

An earlier leaked phone call between the European Union’s Cathrine Ashton and the Estonian foreign minister, indicate it was people aligned with the new USA supported Ukrainian administration were behind the snipers who killed both protestors and police during confrontation in Kiev.

Robert Parry points solely to out of control ultra-nationalists behind the snipers. A better explanation (backing up both the Polish MEP and leaked conversation) is found in rogue CIA officer Phillip Agee’s expose: ‘Terrorism and Civil Society

Furthermore, Robert Parry has misreported the facts on MH 17, detracting from intelligence operations in effort shifting responsibility, as well has pushed blatant American constitutional history revisions. With Ray McGovern’s former military intelligence and CIA background in close association with Robert Parry’s reporting, it is more than fair to question to what extent the American non-violence movement has been penetrated for purpose of information operation manipulations away from discovering the actual facts of the USA’s geopolitical dirty work.

The CIA And Nonviolent Resistance

The outstanding questions are, how this came about, and especially the extent to which Robert Parry is knowingly complicit; or that is to ask, are Parry’s claimed ‘sources’ manipulating him, or is he taking prepared scripts? Although I cannot rule out the possibility Parry is in denial and consequently ripe for being unwittingly manipulated, this seems unlikely. I am strongly of the opinion he is knowingly pushing out scripted material.

In espionage there are three basic means (and several possible combinations thereof) to penetrate and/or use a hostile organization or movement to one’s advantage:

1)  Turning an employee or activist/journalist through some means such as intimidation, blackmail, sex, bribery or appeal to a psychological weakness such as working on someone’s conscience or ideology and convince them to become your organization’s asset (agent/traitor)

2)  Placing your own officer within the organization or dissident movement as an employee or activist (spy)

3) Using psychology and disinformation to convince a movement or organization’s staff to work to your advantage and/or commit acts against its own interests (false flag/sale)

My take is, Robert Parry’s work within the so-called ‘alternative media’ and ‘dissident’ movements profile as a probable category 1) with Ray McGovern playing supportive role of 2) in combination with 3)

Robert Parry had crossed one of the most evil and powerful men on the planet, George H.W. Bush, with his reporting on the 1980 October Surprise. You typically don’t pull something like that off and live to tell. My hypothesis is, Robert Parry’s is a case where the George H.W. Bush criminal cabal (integrated to the CIA’s clandestine services) had managed to turn him, with blackmail and/or threats, into a CIA asset.

One purpose Robert Parry serves, in common with players Ray McGovern, Daniel Ellsberg and Julian Assange, is to draw attention away from the central core of the corruption and its minions behind empire; that is the several cells of an exclusive club within the western intelligence agencies:

Sociopaths & Democracy

Their purpose is pointing people away from this hyper-right-wing Christian religious club’s coup at the Pentagon and related intelligence agency cells responsible for a metastasized GLADIO false-flag terror apparatus spread via ‘democracy’ throughout the globe. Former Pentagon liaison to the CIA, Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty, had labeled this deep state cult ‘The Secret Team’ and described it as a “new religion.” Investigative reporter Jeff Sharlet has documented the related Doug Coe cult extensively. Seymour Hersh and more have touched on it. It has both Catholic & Protestant chapters that overlap with Opus Dei and Assemblies of God (and other sects.) This endeavor had begun in the 1930s with Hitler sympathetic-religious businessmen, bankers & armaments industry personalities (overlapping with spy agencies) organized into cells based on intelligence security model. Their immediate post WW II rescue of the  3rd Reich intelligence apparatus, subsequently integrated to the several western democracies intelligence agencies, is the prima facie cause behind, and evolved to the present, covert rule over our nations and lives.

The goal of an elite, weaponized (Nazi inspired) Christian hierarchy usurping western democratic institutions (an international endeavor based in powerful corporate board interests integrated to our most powerful law enforcement, intelligence agency and military personalities) is nearly within reach for what amounts to a self-annointed extreme Christian religious cult-international criminal syndicate. That goal is rule by corporations guided by a global Christian-cult ‘chosen’ elite.

On the political and intelligence sides, initial key players were Allen and John (Foster) Dulles:

The Dulles brothers were traitors -Justice Arthur Goldberg

Subsequent ‘annointed’ leaders have been George Herbert Walker Bush; who in turn mentored Robert Gates, Gates was a shepherd minding George W. Bush & subsequently played baby sitter to Barack Obama. Gates bowed out and handed affairs to David Petraeus who’s tenure became complicated for undisclosed reasons (never mind the ‘affair’ cover story) and had to hand off the responsibility to John Brennan who may or may not have had his successor chosen to now.

Alternative media ‘cult personalities’ such as Robert Parry, Ray McGovern, Daniel Ellsberg and Julian Assange, all serve to divert attention away from this necrotic phenomena-

 

spyVspy

A spy versus spy episode

So, Robert Parry writes another ‘I’m trying hard to pull Obama’s chestnuts out of the fire & everything is the fault of neo-cons’ tripe article. In his article, Parry makes this dubious claim relating to the downing of MH-17:

“Soon after the shoot-down, I began hearing indirectly from U.S. intelligence analysts that their investigation was actually going in a different direction, that there was no evidence that the Russians had supplied such sophisticated weapons, and that suspicions were focusing on extremist elements of the Ukrainian government. I’m further told that President Obama was apprised of this intelligence analysis”

Robert Parry has, over time, suggested (based on his ‘sources’) everything from it was ‘drunk Ukrainian soldiers‘ to ‘rogue nationalists‘ used a Buk surface to air missile to down MH-17. Now, Parry claims he hears ‘indirectly’ from analysts with innuendo it was out of control radical-right Ukrainian nationalists shot down MH-17 with a Buk missile, an alternative, face-saving emergency exit engineered for Team Obama who is responsible for Joe Biden and John Kerry’s rabid anti-Russia rhetoric and actions in relation to Ukraine; not to mention separate Joe Biden and John Brennan visits coinciding with undermining early cease-fires in the conflict. Noting if Obama want the rhetoric translating to upcoming hostility dialed back, that is exactly what would happen. The rhetoric has not been dialed back, NATO is promoting war in Ukraine and every intelligence agency in the world knows it was a Ukrainian combat jet downed MH-17 in a false flag operation .. not to mention this (yours truly) former intelligence professional (freelancing in the present.)

Judging from his articles, Parry next book should be titled “How I re-twisted America’s twisted narrative’

Refuting other points in the new Parry spiel, Obama had previously backed down from bombing Syria because of a ground-swell of opposition at home threatened ‘business as usual’, not because he was anxious to be rescued by Putin. And Parry neglects to mention Obama is on the ‘remove Assad’ track again, now in concert with NATO’s Turkey (despite twisted denials to the contrary) where it will be Turkey expected to do much of the heavy lifting; after little more than a pause for breath and retooling of the same imperial strategy in which Obama has never demonstrated himself a truly reluctant player. Obama had hired a neo-liberal-neo-con team (Rice-Power/Brennan-Hagel would be examples) and has never hesitated over supporting policy propping up American imperialism.

Parry is like a rear guard for ‘hope’ that never in fact existed; a ‘legend of hope’ that was little more than a packaging ploy to distract from the realities Parry never delves into; the numerous clandestine dirty wars the USA is pursuing around the world under Obama, particularly in Africa:

Deep State V (economics & counter-insurgency)

If Parry were intending to go to the criminal core of American imperialism, rather than focus alternative media readers’ attention on familiar and comfortable targets, detracting from what’s actually going on, he’d delve into the real danger zone:

Deep State IV (sociopaths & democracy)

If Robert Parry’s mission were other than following intelligence agency disinformation diktat, he’d foreclose on the Buk surface to air missile used to down MH-17 line of professional propaganda; as well lift the ever shrinking fig-leaf on Obama’s full complicity in America’s criminal acts .. a fig leaf so small in reality, it defies the Black ‘package’ stereotype:

Robert Parry’s Journalism, Part Two

With a triumphant ‘cock-a-doodle-doo!’ in his recent “Re Shootdown Of Flight MH-17—–German Intelligence Concludes Missile Was Ukrainian, Not Russian” Robert Parry plays lick-spittle to intelligence agency spittoon, taking the bait of a deliberately engineered information operation (disinformation ploy) hook, line & sinker. Alternatively, Parry took a prepared script from his intelligence agency handler and ran with it. In either scenario, the unwitting or the complicit, Robert Parry is what is known in the business of spies as an ‘asset.’

First, let’s have a look at the ‘German Intelligence’ behind Robert Parry’s sudden YEAH! (with no doubt a fist-pump)

Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) or Federal Intelligence Service (Germany) reports directly to Angela Merkel. This German counterpart to the CIA had been born out of the USA’s rescue of Nazi intelligence at the end of World War Two. Initially organized by the OSS and subsequently CIA as the ‘Gehlen Organization’ under Hitler’s veteran Soviet spymaster (Nazi war criminal) Reinhard Gehlen, the BND came into existence when the Gehlen Organization, staffed with Nazi Party & SS veterans, as well as more than 100 former Gestapo officers, was transferred by the USA to the Federal Republic of Germany (then so-called ‘West Germany’) to be under the authority of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. And so it was Hitler’s top intelligence people became Germany’s post-war CIA. One can only imagine Reinhard Gehlen’s smirk when he’d stated his organization employed a lower percentage of former SS & Gestapo than most ministries in Adenauer’s Federal Republic of Germany government.

Nazi’s don’t shed their spots, folks. Simple social psychology determines an agency staffed with Gestapo that is historically, closely wedded to Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (and especially the CDU’s ‘sister’ party, the Christian Social Union) will have kept a certain proclivity or sympathies intact. It’s like any exclusive club at the top, you are hired based on the people controlling the interview process (Gestapo) and promoted to the top because of your willingness to ‘play the game’, insuring a particular mindset will perpetrate itself (similar to inter-generational violence.) This will certainly be  the case of the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) in relation to Angela Merkel’s political support structures in the Bundestag (German Parliament) and its numerous Nazi founders. To see Merkel’s minions (and by implication BND) fingerprints supporting the CIA initiated putsch installing a neo-nazi regime in Ukraine, one need look no farther than Merkel’s CDU aligned Adenauer Foundation:

“According to press reports, the German government would like to have boxing champion Vitali Klitschko run for president and bring him to power in the Ukraine. It would like to enhance the popularity of the opposition’s politician by staging, for example, joint public appearances with the German foreign minister. For this purpose, a meeting is also planned for Klitschko with Chancellor Merkel at the next EU summit in mid-December. The Konrad Adenauer Foundation is, in fact, not only massively supporting Klitschko and his UDAR party. According to a CDU politician, the UDAR Party was founded in 2010 on the direct orders of the CDU foundation. Reports on the foundation’s activities for the development of Klitschko’s party give an indication of how Germans are influencing the Ukraine’s domestic affairs via UDAR. Berlin’s use of Poland in its policy toward the Ukraine is also increasing. Berlin and Warsaw are cooperating with the Ukrainian ultra right-wing Svoboda (“Liberty”) party, which stands in the tradition of Nazi collaborators, who massacred 100,000 Christian and Jewish Poles during WW II”

Now, back to the gist of Robert Parry’s cock-a-doodle-doo in relation to the BND ‘intelligence finding’ reported to parliament, and how Parry’s reporting serves the purpose of an information operation (disinformation campaign.)

The USA had been stupid enough (John Kerry, particularly) to claim Russia was behind the shoot-down of Flight MH-17. This media hype calculated to stir the ill-informed American masses into a Russophobia frenzy, put Germany’s Angela Merkel between a rock and a hard place. Merkel, despite her Nazi derived support structures, has to balance the reality Germany has a solid Russia aligned core in its left political wing, Germany’s business world has significant investments in Russia, and not least, Germany’s populace is not entirely, or even for the most part, so ill informed as to come off as stupid (as rank and file Americans.) Mix this into the pie of Angela Merkel’s CDU & CSU party cadres and intelligence personalities, with strong Nazi tendencies, are little more than USA policy sycophants and there has to be a ‘middle way’ discovered to both; please ‘big brother’ (USA) and avoid appearing to both Russia and domestic press  to be as solidly insane as the Obama administration in relation to Ukraine (despite the fact they are.)

What is certain is, it was not a Ukrainian ‘rebel’ controlled Buk (surface to air) missile brought down Flight MH-17, there are simply too many professionals have examined the evidence and found it to be more than unconvincing, rather the so-called ‘evidence’ comes off as disingenuous. We know the ‘rebels’ had a captured Buk. We know both Kiev and the rebels had stated the Buk launcher was inoperable. The rebels had invited outside observers to examine the Buk in their possession, abandoned by Kiev’s forces, to determine the Buk could not have been used to shoot down MH-17 (an offer declined by the western democracies.) Angela Merkel’s intelligence people (in consultation with the CIA no doubt) have to come up with a Solomon solution to this dilemma, and they do so by offering to cut the disinformation by half. The solution? Blame the rebels, but exonerate Russia. This is accomplished by presenting ‘evidence’ (that was not made public) to the German parliamentary committee overseeing foreign affairs in a closed meeting and then inform Der Spiegel. This is how the disinformation game is played in mainstream media folks.

Now, in relation to alternative media, with a carefully engineered false line of information published on behalf of the intelligence agencies, CIA asset Robert Parry has his chance to cock-a-doodle-doo to the heavens, crowing IT WASN’T THE RUSSIANS! (we already knew that) delivering a BND engineered escape route to the Obama Administration’s CIA despite the more reliable facts point to Kiev as the actual perpetrators of the MH-17 shoot-down NOT with a missile but with a COMBAT JET. The BND’s ‘Sorry, it wasn’t the Russians put up a surface to air missile, it was the rebels’ twisted by Parry into a ‘out of control Ukrainian nationalists by far more likely than rebels used a Buk’ falsehood gets coverage in alternative media. That will have to do as a fallback position for DCI John Brennan’s people wanting ambiguity to be sustained. Except that we know it wasn’t Parry’s accused ‘rogue nationalists’ or the BND’s accused ‘rebels’, it was Kiev’s interior ministry, and it wasn’t a Buk surface to air missile, it was a military jet shot down MH 17. By leaving open the door to a rogue nationalist or rebel shoot down with a surface to air missile, rather than foreclosing on the Buk surface to air missile reporting on what has been nothing more than a ruse, helps kill the chances there will be a serious exam in media of the facts convicting Kiev (quite likely with assist from CIA or ‘other’ agencies covert ops) use of a military jet. This is Robert Parry’s professional disinformation engineering method; substituting false narrative with alternative false narrative, and it’s not the first time.

How is it Robert Parry can claim reliable sources to feed supporting disinformation into his story lines? Look no farther than his bosom buddy, ‘disgruntled & retired’ CIA analyst Ray McGovern. A ‘mr insider’ as a close associate will make anything Parry claims in relation to ‘reliable’ inside sources look credible. If indeed Parry had sources spilling information the Obama administration did not want in the public purview, they’d be all over Parry like flies on stink and McGovern and related ‘other’ sources would be sitting in a cell next to John Kiriakou.

Meanwhile, the steadily growing trail of verifiable facts back up the Russian investigation of events:

If Robert Parry were peddling honest materials, he’d have long since foreclosed on any surface to air missile scenario; where in fact all his reporting serves is to provide escape mechanism for the perpetrators of the murders of 298 innocent international air travelers in a false-flag intelligence agency caper intended to frame Russia for a heinous crime-

Nevertheless, he knows he’s liable to be compromised eventually: “I’m going to slip up and they’re going to hack me. It’s going to happen”” James Bamford, quoting Edward Snowden

All the encryption in the world isn’t going to protect a hacked computer, trust Edward Snowden. But first, a bit of my own story and then on to how (not) to leak:

When I’d exited the U.S. Army in April, 1976, I held a top secret clearance. The only documents I had taken with me were a complete record of my military 201 file. I also had (since) acquired copies of my veterans and social security files. How I’d managed copies of these are a secret, along the lines of Benjamin Franklin’s ‘three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead.’ In this regard, it is worth mentioning I have held information between my ears that has never been entered into a computer, let alone sent via any email.

Ok, so I can tell how I acquired the social security file, the social security administration fucked up and mailed me my own file. Yes, the original, which I went through with what certain people might have assumed would be great satisfaction, as supposedly I realized I was the censor who’d decide what I could see in my file. Of course I redacted or with-held nothing in my self exam, prior to sending the file on to my attorney who notified the social security administration we were (supposedly) inadvertently in possession of the file and to who should we send it to? A lady at the administration, in subsequent conversation, commented to myself something along the lines of ‘NO ONE has had the access to their file that you have had…’

But in fact this social security business was patent bs. Almost certainly the file had been deliberately sent my way, stripped of certain records, to throw me off the trail of then senators Max Baucus and Conrad Burns who both were suspects in regards to my file having been sequestered for months at the Social Security offices in Maryland while it was investigated whether I could be charged with fraud. Why? The USA appears to have left no stone unturned in efforts to take myself out of the public circulation due to my anti-corruption work of that era (1990s.) It was about this time I’d produced copies of records from my VA file (like a magician) after certain originals had gone missing following an ‘expert’ sent from Washington to Helena (Montana, where my file was kept) to ‘review’ files, kept me from charges of fraud relating to my veteran’s disability pension.

This (failed) ‘deep state’ caper in regards to attempt at trumping up felony charges intended to send me to jail and end my work, follows typical false flag spy-craft model. The people hearing the case, had it been successfully pursued, would have been innocents looking at a record they could not know (or believe) had been tampered with, to secure a conviction. My having copies of my VA file documents, saved my butt. I produced the necessary copy of a critical document at the initial hearing and the case was dismissed on the spot.

It wasn’t until I’d dug into the USA’s funding of charter schools as cover for intelligence embeds, the agencies had begun playing hardball or, that is to say, devoted resources to taking me out physically (assassination.)

Prior to this, during my stint with Special Forces, I’d the best possible education in operations and intelligence because it was not school, but OJT (on-the-job-training) with veterans of operations coordinated with CIA in Indochina and Central America. This was the best (or worst, depending on one’s perspective) avenue to knowledge in the ‘game’ of international intrigue; it was unrestricted, first hand knowledge of the dirty aspect of the business on the ground, where the intrigues hatched by criminal minds at Langley, Virginia, are played out.  Suffice it to say, I departed Special Forces with a remarkable understanding of how underhanded the game of spies is played, the paramount importance of employing psychology to one’s advantage (in often devious ways), and the imperative necessity of the death of one’s conscience to be successful and survive (and ultimately is why I accepted a reduction in rank to leave a Special Forces intelligence assignment and retrain for a new & different skill set, shy of a year on the job.) I took my conscience, intact, with me on departure, together with a remarkable skills set I developed through experience, in subsequent work as investigator. My favorite of these skills had been open source analysis, in fact in light of the avalanche of criticisms since the Snowden revelations, it has been pointed out CIA open source analysis has been more effective, by far, than any NSA program, in relation to spy-craft.

Now, applying old school spy-craft, to the point of this essay; how NOT to leak-

Since WikiLeaks, we’ve had ‘OpenLeaks‘ (a flop) and now we are presented with ‘SecureDrop.

However ‘SecureDrop’ might be well intended, I wouldn’t touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole. What’s more is, I doubt you’d even need it, if you wished to leak. I’ll go into the why you wouldn’t need it first, and then why I wouldn’t touch it.

If you wished to have a secure platform to leak criminal activities from, as opposed to a ‘secure’ online platform to leak to, you should be able to build one yourself. And you shouldn’t need to be a computer guru to do it. The recipe is exceedingly simple:

Acquire an older laptop that cannot be traced to you, from a yard sale in an unfamiliar neighborhood, example given. Park your car away from where you make the purchase. Or pick one up in a junk store. I don’t advise stealing a machine, but that’d work if you’re a professional thief and don’t leave a trail. You prefer a laptop that predates NSA advances in modifying computers in the commercial market. Acquired a working clunker from 2002, say a PowerBook with an airport card? Perfect. An Apple machine is preferable, so there are no complications with anti-virus updates. We know the NSA has arranged to implant computers with bugged software, actual hardware in some cases, and we want a computer that does not ‘call home’ (NSA) when certain red flags might be triggered by materials you might be handling.

Now, before you even fire the old machine up for the first time, you kill the web-cam with indelible marker or a piece of paper taped over it will do just fine. And you plug the microphone and speaker jacks with dummies cut from discarded actual microphones and speakers and epoxy them in place, just to make certain they stay there. Cut them off where the metal plug extends from the jack, so they are not obvious. Now your ‘leak platform’ is blind, deaf and dumb. Search the machine for any GPS integrated software programs and disable them. DO NOT log into internet from your home.

Now, as to what you might be leaking, consider whether it will be tracked to you on the back-end (source.) Be assured there will be (post Snowden) efforts to do certain things, like identify a computer that had items downloaded onto a memory stick. How will you get your materials safely to the machine you intend to leak from? Old fashioned spy-craft is something to consider, if you do not feel secure in the environment whose security you are breaching. Digital photos of actual documents can be loaded into the computer or paper documents can be scanned into your ‘leak platform’ (in which case you will want an older, untraceable scanner as well.) Use a digital camera that cannot be traced to you. You NEVER want to mail by post any documents, because certain addresses will be flagged by intelligence agencies and your package could be intercepted and might give up fingerprints and/or DNA. and other information, such as a the postmark information needed to review security footage at specific location on certain date. Also, you’ll want clean paper documents for a scanner (particularly) or digital camera, on account of the possibility with a high resolution, you might inadvertently scan your own or your colleagues fingerprints (use gloves when working with any paper documents.)

Ask yourself, is the material you are considering making public, of a demonstrable criminal nature? Or, does it shock the conscience in a sense of egregious violating principles of ethics? COVER YOUR ASS, BECAUSE NO MATTER THE PRECAUTIONS TAKEN, YOU MIGHT GET CAUGHT. Public opinion might save your butt, but don’t count on it, it hasn’t worked for Snowden (yet.)

Remind yourself, from the time of Bradley Manning to Snowden, there has been a dearth of leakers that have gone undetected. Has it ever crossed your mind there has been no ‘deep throat‘ in our present era, and why it seems everyone gets busted instead? As well, our Federalist Society majority on the USA’s ‘deep state’ owned (corporate board controlled) Supreme Court has just refused first amendment free press protection to journalism in the case of James Risen in a leaks case. They’ll be after you with everything at the system’s disposal and your chances are not good if you are detected.

Now, you’ve decided, as a patriot, your leak is worth your liberty and/or life and you’ve convinced yourself you’ve stolen the material you wish  to leak without getting caught (let’s hope you’re right) and it’s time to deliver to the journalists, undetected. Perhaps you’d wish to wait three or six months, after you’ve gotten away with the initial theft, it’d be nice if the trail grows cold. Now, your documents are loaded into file that is easy to access, for instance located on the desktop. The email addresses you wish to send the information to are handy. Now, your platform, ‘Dr Leakey’ (named for the archaeologist), is ready. You are in familiar turf (if you are confident), or you have traveled to unfamiliar territory (if you have nerves of steel.) What you need is an open wireless signal you can log onto. When you’ve found this at a cafe or a truckstop or simply a careless person in any neighborhood where you can log in from, sitting in your car parked close by, log on. Create a faked email account (that you will never use again.) Send a first mail (BCC to recipients) to yourself, explaining there is a second mail following with attachments and stating if the recipient does not see the second mail, to look in their spam folder. This mail should pop up and you see it with no failed addresses (from the BCC to the people you are mailing.) Seeing you have a working address on both ends (i.e. a functioning mail account) and are you still determined to do this, ask yourself, for real? Deep breath, new mail addressed, attached file(s), hit send, have coffee, read the paper, look at ease, normal, belonging in your environment while the what might seem like ages in time pass as the file uploads over a clunker computer and finally the mail goes ‘whoosh’ (in your mind) and the leak is done.

Calmly go on about your day and know how you will be disposing of Dr Leakey. You used him for this one project and will never use him again. Example given, pull out the ram, hard drive goes to the incinerator (an all night campfire will do), break the screen as though Dr Leakey had been accidentally dropped & parts salvaged, and the carcass destination ends in a dumpster. Same end for either the digital camera or scanner, if you used these. Be patient for results in the news. You’ve just dropped a bomb from the unseen world and any journalist worth your while, will take time to try and authenticate the information you’ve provided. If they blow it off and never pursue the lead, maybe the gods actually love you. You’ve laid in a small dose of Valium for a possible polygraph (you can beat by simply being relaxed with telling a lie.) If you’ve gotten away with it, resist temptation to ever do it again. There might be such thing as a charmed life, but it’s probably not yours.

By now, the NSA with its billions of mails to look through, will come up with (at most) someone sent a mail from an account used ONCE, from an old computer they never see log in again, over some unsecured random wireless signal in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, example given. Maybe you live in this area of 13 million people or maybe you don’t. This is because you left little in the way of digital fingerprints by finding a way around taking your leak out on a memory stick. Enjoy a quiet laugh and hope you were good enough getting the material out the back-end, with a cold or faint trail, because if you did it right,  they can’t track you from that end. And then erase your personal memory, the one between your ears, because you never wish to tell ANYONE, who you are, in relation to what you’ve done. And at the end of the day, remember Snowden did not use an online leaks platform. He’s since stated he has professional spy training and this is borne out by his actions, he leaked the old fashioned way, along the lines set out by a former FBI agent in the article ‘Spy Craft for Hacks.‘ You’d need cold nerves, excellent understanding of the environment and good luck, to pull it off. Nothing suffices for this like training and even then, there is no absolute way of doing these things undetected. Luck and competence of your adversaries play into this as well.

Now, to why you probably don’t actually want or need to leak. Firstly, Snowden has done everything that needs done. What we know is no longer a conspiracy ‘theory’ (rather fact) is, the USA’s security state is behaving like nazis in relation to surveillance of its own people. We know it’s likely the corporate ‘deep state’ co-opted congress, president and courts are doing and will do little or nothing to actually change this behavior of the MILITARY elements in control of the runaway NSA, other than at most, wring their hands for public consumption. You don’t need much more knowledge than Snowden has provided, to effect change, if change is going to happen. And if change isn’t happening, what’s the point? If our society’s leading lights are merely content (at most) to shout and stamp their feet like spoiled children at what is going on, rather than shut down ‘business as usual’ along the lines of refusing this criminal hydra legitimacy and attending power, and you don’t see the tectonic plate shift in public outrage necessary to force the issue, there really is no point, people have been cowed into obedience along the lines predicted by both Orwell & Huxley. On the one hand you have Orwell’s conservative sheep bleating on behalf of the ‘security’ state over the terror propaganda all of our western world has been fed. On the other hand you have Huxley’s ‘it’s all about me’ MTV generation could care less about civil liberties beyond freedom to consume, extreme sport, sex, fashion and media ego. With corporate media feeding a public with an education one mile wide and one quarter inch deep, Billy Graham and Hollywood (our two primary oracles of ‘god’) rule a society which has cannot be saved from itself, because you cannot get the majority’s attention long enough to explain a few things that might change their focus, if not their beliefs, whether puritan or hedonistic. This reflects social engineering via information operations. Stepping into/out of this world in relation to spies and leaking is a very dangerous proposition for the untrained. Now is time to work with what Snowden has revealed, not obsess with pursing endless soap operas concerning information on criminals you exercise no real control over. And there is a reason intelligence will want you obsessing (keep reading.)

Secondly, what Snowden has revealed merely confirms what can be clearly inferred from open source analysis, our civil structures have become criminal, out of control, one could go so far as to simply state ‘insane.’ And this is what is distracted from, when obsessed with being outraged at the western democracies ‘voyeurism’ in relation to ‘the people’ who supposedly are in control of our future direction via the principle of ‘consent of the governed.’ The propagandists at the several corporate board controlled intelligence agencies, via co-opted western media, will work to guide and exploit this national tantrum to a calmed down child at the end of the day.

As to the ongoing criminal agendas, one only need look at Monsanto as a corporate poster child and how they’ve managed to buy congress and the courts via Federalist Society owned justices at the top, along the lines of ‘citizens united.’ As for the out of control, one only need look at how ineffective congressional oversight has been, and is presently, in regards to NSA, example given, and there is no change in sight. As for the insane, one only need look at the USA, and it’s lapdog western democracies, pushing Russia to the brink with geo-political capers recently best illustrated in Ukraine, and how western media lies to the public about what is actually going on. Left unchecked, this insanity will certainly lead to VERY BAD subsequent events.

Now, thirdly, to alternative media and the so-called ‘progressive’ movement, recalling Snowden leaked the ‘old fashioned’ way and farther reason why I wouldn’t touch any online platform, despite the indomitable Guardian has subscribed to ‘SecureDrop.’

To begin with, directing leaks to electronics communications platforms is playing to the NSA’s strong point, this area of expertise is SIGINT (signals intelligence) forte. No matter the encryption expertise involved in any platform’s construction, it is an invitation to play in the lion’s den. Be assured, the NSA (not to mention GCHQ and other intelligence agencies) will assign crack teams to SecureDrop. To the Guardian’s credit, they warn there is no promise of a foolproof system and they cannot assure anyone 100% security with the new platform. But, in addition to this caveat, there is an altogether overlooked danger in using SecureDrop.

The Guardian is an organization that would be very deliberately targeted by HUMINT (human intelligence) as a matter of fact. Organizations wishing to penetrate, spy, shape dialogue & policy within the Guardian would include MOSSAD, CIA, DGSE (France) and the British intelligence agencies. Each of these agencies will have a vested interest in covert penetration of the Guardian on account of that paper not having been entirely co-opted by the western democracies ‘deep state.’ As opposed to dealing with a Glenn Greenwald who’s connected at the top tier of Guardian management, anything, even were it successfully sent through what might be a presently secure system, is at risk nevertheless, of exposure to clandestine a rabbit warren designed by spies within the Guardian organization. Trust me, they’re there. MOSSAD particularly, would be interested in any information it could potentially acquire, as ‘chits’ to trade to the USA (and other nations) for political favors, as its political currency continues in steady decline over West Bank issues. Just because you possibly managed a ‘secure’ leak over the SecureDrop system, does not mean you are secure, not by a long shot, because you cannot know how the material might be compromised after it has been put through, let alone whether the system itself is already penetrated/designed to identify the source point of the upload. And every week that passes since the SecureDrop introduction, the mathematical probabilities it will be penetrated by national & corporate SIGINT agencies increase, with multiple resources devoted to precisely that task.

And now to the odious (closing) aspect of this essay.

“You can imagine my surprise when I read the June 13, 1971, issue of the Sunday New York Times and saw there among the “Pentagon Papers” a number of basic information papers that had been in my own files in the Joint Chiefs of Staff area of the Pentagon. Most of the papers of that period had been source documents from which I had prepared dozens — even hundreds — of briefings, for all kinds of projects, to be given to top Pentagon officers. Not only had many of those papers been in my files, but I had either written many of them myself or had written certain of the source documents used by the men who did.

“Many people have been so concerned about what has been happening to our Government that they have dedicated themselves to investigating and exposing its evils. Unfortunately, a number of these writers have been dupes of those cleverer than they or with sinister reasons for concealing knowledge. They have written what they thought was the truth, only to find out (if they ever did find out) that they had been fed a lot of contrived cover stories and just plain hogwash

“In the hands of Allen Dulles, “secrecy” was simply a chameleon device to be used as he saw fit and to be applied to lesser men according to his schemes. It is quite fantastic to find people like Daniel Ellsberg being charged with leaking official secrets simply because the label on the piece of paper said “TOP SECRET,” when the substance of many of the words written on those same papers was patently untrue and no more than a cover story. Except for the fact that they were official “lies”, these papers had no basis in fact, and therefore no basis to be graded TOP SECRET or any other degree of classification

“Any reader of the “Pentagon Papers” should be warned that although they were commissioned on June 17, 1967, by the Secretary of Defense as “the history of United States involvement in Vietnam from World War II [Sept 2, 1945] to the present” [1968], they are unreliable, inaccurate and marred by serious omissions. They are a contrived history, at best, even though they were written by a selected Task Force under Pentagon leadership” -Pentagon liaison to the CIA, L. Fletcher Prouty

Daniel Ellsberg has been a champion of WikiLeaks. And now he is promoting SecureDrop for Exposefacts.org. Open source analysis profiles (STRONGLY) Daniel Ellsberg as an intelligence agency officer, almost certainly CIA. What the CIA edits at wikipedia doesn’t inform of, when the public is fed

“Ellsberg served in the Pentagon from August 1964 under Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (and, in fact, was on duty on the evening of the Gulf of Tonkin incident, reporting the incident to McNamara). He then served for two years in Vietnam working for General Edward Lansdale as a civilian in the State Department”

…is Ellsberg’s work for Edward Lansdale at Department of State has CIA information operations written all over it. One of CIA’s big tasks is information operations or social engineering via psychological manipulation of entire populations. And Ellsberg was working with one of the CIA’s true big shots in this area of intelligence expertise. The ultimate purpose of the ‘Pentagon Papers’ leak was information operations (social engineering) to shield the CIA from public accountability for the massive intelligence & related policy failures in Vietnam; by shifting public focus onto the Pentagon. The CIA was expendable and could have been disbanded. The Pentagon could not be done away with.

Colonel Prouty blew the whistle on the CIA & Ellsberg over 40 years ago. His work, which has borne the test of time, is buried, meanwhile, whistle-blower ‘legend’ Ellsberg invites leakers into the SecureDrop cobra’s lair… as you actually believe the initial SecureDrop developer, Aaron Schwartz, hanged himself. Probably, like Gary Webb shot himself in the head TWICE (Superman could do that.) It’s an old model, for instance when Eli Black had stepped into longtime CIA turf at United Fruit, he was framed with an SEC investigation and subsequently ‘depressed’, Eli  ‘jumped’ 44 floors from his office building. No-no, the CIA liaised generals at NSA won’t be allowing certain activities to move forward unimpeded. The only question with ‘SecureDrop’ is, how it has been/will be compromised.

Has it ever occurred to anyone, as to why, no one has ever outed a ‘Kim Philby‘ embedded in the progressive and peace movements, as though intelligence operatives would never caper within that playground? I’ll name you three. 1) Daniel Ellsberg. 2) Robert Parry. 3) Ray McGovern.
