IS THE C.I.A. AMERICA'S FRIEND?
By Lynn Stuter
November 27, 2007
A nationwide news agency, supposedly of the conservative persuasion, recently sent out an e-gram containing items for sale loosely commemorating patriotism and the “holiday season.” Tucked amidst the offerings of DVD’s of John Wayne’s tribute to America and Cecil B DeMille’s epic classic, The Ten Commandments, with Yul Brynner and Charlton Heston, was an ad for a CIA cap, stating,
First of all, the so-called War on Terror isn’t a war on terror at all, it’s a war on the Constitution and Bill of Rights; a war on the rights of the American people. The War on Terror is like the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty; in each case the targeted problem got worse instead of better: the War on Drugs brought more drugs into the United States; the War on Poverty increased poverty. In each case, however, federal bureaucracies were spawned that managed to gobble up more and more tax dollars, gain more and more power, while whining that more money would surely cure the problem. Just like more money won’t cure the woes of a failing federal education bureaucracy, more money will not cure any problem in which the government has taken a role. More money to the federal government simply means more bureaucracy, a concept understood by our Founding Fathers but lost on the American people today who continue to hold out hope that things will get better if they just give more money, when consistently the opposite has been proven the case. One would think that after a while the American people would catch on that paying more money into a black hole nets the American people nothing but more grief. While holding out hope, the American people seem addicted to the self-destructive concept that more money will cure ills.
Now we have the War on Terror which has already cost the American taxpayers an estimated $610.5 billon ($610,500,000,000); established a huge federal bureaucracy called the Department of Homeland Security ; and further infringed on the rights of the American people through
All in the name of fighting a nebulous, loosely-defined group of unknowns with no apparent faces, features or characteristics, called “terrorists.” Not even Osama bin Laden who, immediately following September 11, 2001, was at the top of the list of “wanted”; but who, after Bush got his invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, was suddenly no longer important and no longer hunted. The conundrums only get worse.
For all this, has terrorism decreased? No, it hasn’t. And no, it won’t. But the threat of people blowing up, cars blowing up, planes blowing up, buildings mysteriously imploding into their footprints, bridges collapsing, shopping malls, coliseums and sports arenas being blown up, ad infinitum, ad nauseam, is continually being dangled as a possibility before the American people, complete with graphic pictures of the same occurring elsewhere, to extort more money and more rights from them. And the American people are buying it, hook, line, and sinker.
At the same time, we have not seen one meaningful measure taken to staunch the flow of illegal aliens crossing the borders, north and south, of the United States. Included in that flow — to the tune of 12 to 20,000,000 illegal aliens — are terrorists, rapists, murderers, sodomites, drug dealers, human traffickers, drunks, dope addicts, and many other of the criminal element beyond the fact that every illegal alien becomes a criminal the moment he/she sets foot in this country without the required permission and documents to do so. On average, at least 25 Americans are killed each day by illegal aliens on American soil. Materials needed to build IEDs have shown up in Texas; prayer rugs and terrorist clothing have shown up in the deserts of the Southwest known to be routes of ingress for illegal aliens.
Yet we have the Bush Administration bragging that the War on Terror has been so successful that we’ve not been attacked since September 11, 2001. Of course, who was truly responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001, has never been proven. What we have is an official government story that is so full of holes, so riddled with cover-ups, inconsistencies, improbabilities and impossibilities, denials of access, refusals to disclose, and secrecy that only a fool would believe the Bush Administration and government didn’t have something to hide. And the staged 9/11 Commission and its resulting report only makes the government cover-up more apparent.
Then, too, we have media hacks like Glenn Beck contending that those seeking the truth about the events of September 11, 2001, are “idiots” who think the United States government “capable” of pulling off the events of September 11, 2001 without it ending up “front page of the New York Times.” If Beck truly believes this about the government, just how could he possibly imagine the same was not true if this was the foreign born plot of terrorists who delight in taking immediate responsibility for their actions, the limp and unsubstantiated supposed claim of al Qaeda long after the fact (October 2004) notwithstanding?
But all of this could lead one to another conclusion: the reason there have been no further attacks on America is that the attacks that have occurred have occurred to bring about the wanted solution — to bring the American people, who would not support a War on Terror otherwise, to support the Bush Administration’s invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. Time and again, the Hegelian Dialectic has been used to move the American people to accept something they would not otherwise accept. Who can forget the Project for a New American Century document, Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century in which the need for a “new Pearl Harbor” is advocated? Who can forget the laundry list of Bush Administration officials whose names are indelibly connected to that document: Dick Cheney, Eliot A. Cohen, Paula Dobriansky, Aaron Friedberg, Francis Fukuyama, Zalmay Khalilzad, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Norman Podhoretz, Peter W Rodman, Henry S. Rowan, Donald Rumsfeld, Vin Weber, and Paul Wolfowitz? Did these people have motive? Did they have means? Did they have opportunity?
Following this train of thought, further terrorist attacks would only become necessary if the American people needed further encouragement to jump on, or stay on, the imperial expansionist band wagon. Consider that when Bush got his troop surge in Iraq, the terrorist threat suddenly disappeared; and apparently, so did Chertoff’s gut feelings prominently aired and promoted leading up to that troop surge. How many times does this scenario have to be repeated before the American people catch on?
The ad above describes the CIA as “one of the world’s most secretive and effective government agencies.” While the name, Central Intelligence Agency, implies this agency is about the gathering and analyzing of intelligence, that is an assumption in large part. Why is the CIA secretive? While most would be quick to respond “for reasons of national security,” do the following fall in the realm of national security?
There is no question that the CIA has been effective. The question is, effective at what? At furthering freedom, liberty and justice as the American people have been led to believe? Or has the CIA been effective in destroying America as it has destroyed other nations in the name of “national security”? Was the CIA behind the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy? Evidence now coming to light suggests more than a scant probability that such is the case ; especially in light of the flawed Warren Commission report.
Attempts to view the budget of the CIA, to surveil the scope of operations of the CIA, have been continually thwarted and denied. The budget of the CIA exists in a black hole of secrecy that even Congressman have no access to. The CIA is accountable to no one; their operations cloaked under the guise of “national security” and kept away from the eyes of the American people and Congress until declassified years later, if then.
It is beyond comprehension that the majority of the American people would support the work of the CIA, knowing what they have been and are involved in that is so detrimental to the best interests of the people of the United States, so depraved in purpose and construct. It is beyond comprehension that the American people could believe that the work of a rogue agency is not being used on the American people as it has been used on the people of other nations. CIA involvement in the Franklin cover-up and Washington call-boy scandal is but one instance of this rogue agencies actions.
It is long past time the light of exposure and truth be shined upon the CIA, the depth and extent of its operations laid bare for the American people to see. When an agency must exist within a total vacuum of secrecy, such is not in the best interests, ever, of the people it purports to serve. What is coming to light now, after years of CIA operations in the United States and abroad, proves that.
Wear a CIA cap proudly proclaiming support for the CIA? Not in a million years!
1, It is of interest, and should be of interest to the American people, that under Hitler, Germany was constantly and continuously referred to as “the homeland” just as Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff refers to the United States as “the homeland” every time he opens his mouth.
2, And lest some one think an attempt is being made to denigrate the lives lost in such fashion, such is definitely not true. What is true is that the perpetrators are not necessarily those appearing, with repetition, on television screens nation-wide.
3, Early leaders at Esalen Institute include B.F. Skinner, Abraham Maslow, and Carl Rogers, all involved in humanist psychology; their behavior modification theories and techniques incorporated in teacher curriculums taught in colleges and universities across the United States. B.F. Skinner is best known for his operant conditioning techniques of how to train a child, not educate a child. Abraham Maslow is considered the founder of Third Force Psychology. Carl Rogers is considered the father of the “human potential movement” (HPM), the concepts of which are taught in teacher curriculums in colleges and universities nation-wide and touted by New Age guru’s like Jack Canfield who, in his self esteem curriculum for schools, 101 Ways to Develop Student Self-Esteem and Responsibility, Vol I, supports teachers putting children in “altered states of consciousness” — a hypnotic state used in mind control in which the mind becomes highly susceptible to suggestion.

4, E Howard Hunt, in a death-bed confession to his son, stated the CIA was behind, was involved in the assassination. Other evidence coming to light supports this confession.
