Release of Intelligence Report Designed to Divert Attention from Failed Obama Policies

So the Senate intelligence committee report on CIA “torture” practices has been released. The report is apparently 6300 pages and the summary is 600. Out of all those pages the only thing we should take from the report is that America, at least under Republican control, is bad. CNN reported that “The CIA’s harsh interrogations of […]

Dem Says CIA Contractors Who Fought at Benghazi are Liars

Remember the movie A Few Good Men? The most famous line from that movie is when Tom Cruise as Lt. Kaffee, has Jack Nicholson as Col. Jessep on the witness stand and demands that he tells the truth.

CIA Smuggling Arms in Benghazi — No, Really?

News flashes from the mainstream media, followed by the reaction of knowledgeable people (i.e., those who don’t wait for the mainstream media to find out what’s going on): The CIA had personnel on the ground when the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked last year, leaving four Americans, including an ambassador, dead. Duh. The […]

CIA Now Tampering With Planet

I have a twitter feed I sometimes look at that has all the “kooky” conspiratorial sites. Over the weekend I thought I must have accidentally hit the link for it because, without planning to, I was looking at the tweet: “CIA Studying How To Control The Earth’s Climate.” It wasn’t some conspiracy theory. It was […]

Benghazi Whistleblowers Threatened By Obama Administration

The fiasco surrounding the attack last year of the US Consulate in Benghazi has all of the makings of another Watergate cover-up.  As information continues to leak out, it appears that President Barack Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not only lied to the American people about what happened, but they may have […]

How Does Bribery, Corruption, and Heroin Support Democracy?

This is one of those stories that have been reported before in piecemeal fashion, but the New York Times has hit is again: “With Bags of Cash, C.I.A.

CIA Playbook For Drone Killings Leaves Pakistan Exempt

The CIA under the direction of Director-to-be John Brennan have come up with a “playbook,” a sort of policy and procedures manual that lays out rules for killing people in drone strikes. But even after President Obama signs off on it, the playbook rules won’t apply to Pakistan. For the next 1 or 2 years, […]

Protecting US? Or Just Spying On US and Fighting Each Other?

When we suffered the horrible attacks on September 11, 2001, we were told that there was a problem. First, our security agencies were not able to spy quickly enough and with enough autonomy to really protect us. Second, our security agencies were not working together, pooling their data, and sharing resources. The Patriot Act and […]

At least two cables, published by Foreign Policy magazine, show that Ambassador Chris Stevens’ team was aware the U.S. mission in Benghazi was being observed the morning before the attack that killed Stevens and three other Americans.
