Think you know the Jonestown story?
It’s a safe bet that if something receives front page coverage, just about everything about the story has been massaged before it becomes “news.”
In the 1970s, there was no bigger story than Jonestown.
Supposedly, several hundred people voluntarily committed suicide rather than have their “paradise” taken away from them.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
We play this video now because it turns out that Jim Jones, the leader of the Jonestown cult (i.e. experimental offshore jungle prison camp) was an associate of CIA agent in USAID clothing Dan Mitrione whose life as a torture expert lent out to South American dictatorships was featured in the film “State of Siege.”
They were from the same town, they were both in Brazil at the same time, and they both had double lives, posing as one thing (a traffic expert, a religious figure) while being involved in something very different.
If it’s on the TV news, odds are it’s a manufactured lie. This is so pervasive, we should really start calling TV “liar-vision.”
In the 1990s, twenty years after Jonestown, accessing documents and photographs never shown in mainstream news reports, Brasscheck produced this web site that documented the widespread political corruption in San Francisco and California that enabled the Jonestown tragedy.
