A bit hazy as far as it goes but someone needs to start this discussion. But as always the role and structure of money itself has to be central to the question of social organization.
But Brennan is a proven, documented liar. He was busted for lying to Congress and the American public by claiming that the CIA wasn’t spying on the Congressional investigation into torture … when it was.
Indeed, the Washington Post called on Brennan to be fired for lying.
And Brennan lied when – as Obama’s counter-terrorism advisor – he said that in the past year there had not been a single collateral death from drone strikes. (He later changed that slightly to say there was no “credible evidence” of such deaths.) But there was abundant and credible evidence of collateral deaths from drone strikes. As just one example among many, a March 2011 CIA drone attack in Pakistan killed some 50 people, including tribal elders who were gathered for a tribal conclave.)
Trevor Timm pointed out at the Guardian:
Internal intelligence documents leaked to McClatchy later confirmed Brennan to have lied at the time ….
When Brennan was approved by the Senate, many of his friends told the media he wanted to get the CIA out of the drone business and hand operations over to the Pentagon, but of course once he assumed his office, he seems to have reversed course and kept the drone program under CIA control.
Brennan also fed the public wildly inaccurate details about the Osama bin Laden raid in 2011, and despite condemning leaks of classified information from others, he has often leaks classified information himself to suit his own needs.
This is the type of spy … who lies because he doesn’t like to tell the truth.
Indeed, Brennan’s CIA even created hacking techniques to frame other countries for hacking incidents.
As Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Seymour Hersch said in January in a story questioning the whole Russian hacking story:
[If I had been covering the story,] I would have made [John] Brennan into a buffoon. A yapping buffoon in the last few days. Instead, everything is reported seriously.
Postscript: The other intelligence official behind many of the Russian hacking claims – James Clapper – is also a confirmed liar.
We’ve noted for many months that the DNC emails were leaked by an insider, not hacked by the Russians.
Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh – who revealed in 1974 that the CIA was spying on Americans, who broke the story of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Iraq prison torture scandal – said in a recent phone interview linked by WikiLeaks:
[The DC police took Seth Rich’s computer, but couldn’t get past his password.] So they call the FBI cyber unit.
The Feds get through [the password-protection on Rich’s computer], and this is what they find. This is accoring to the FBI report.
What the report says is that – some time in late spring or early summer – he [Rich] makes contact with WikiLeaks. That’s in his computer.
They [the FBI] found what he [Rich] had done was he had submitted a series of documents – of emails, of juicy emails – from the DNC.
By the way, all this shit about the DNC, where the hack, it wasn’t hacked …
He offered a sample, an extensive sample, I’m sure dozens of emails, and said I want money. [Remember, WikiLeaks often pays whistleblowers.]
Later, WikiLeaks did get the password. He [Rich] had a dropbox, a protected dropbox, which isn’t hard to do.
They got access to the dropbox. That’s in the FBI report.
He [Rich] also let people know with whom he was dealing … the word was passed, according to the FBI report, “I also shared this box with a couple of friends, so if anything happens to me, it’s not going to solve your problem”.
But WikiLeaks got access, before he was killed.
I have a narrative of how that whole fucking thing began. It’s a [former CIA director John]Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation [campaign].
On June 09, 2017, the advisors to the International EMF Scientist Appeal submitted a letter of comment to the recent FCC proposed rulemakings, which if passed would allow 5G ‘small cell’ antennas to be rapidly built throughout the United States.
The scientists submitted a comment in opposition to FCC Docket Numbers 17-79 and 15-180 which would allow streamlined approval of 5G infrastructure to be built on existing utility poles, in greater number than current cellular antennas.
The EMF Scientists are over 225 reputable scientists from 41 countries who have peer reviewed publications on electromagnetic fields who made a 2015 appeal to the United Nations and all member States in the world to encourage the World Health Organization “to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines, encouraging precautionary measures, and educating the public about health risks, particularly risk to children and fetal development.” Read the 2015 EMF Scientist Appeal and see the long list of signatories here.
Their letter calls on the “The FCC to critically consider the potential impact of the 5th generation wireless infrastructure on the health and safety of the U.S. population before proceeding to deploy this infrastructure.”….
