CIA spreads disinformation to news agencies

That is the assertion made not by some loony bin, but by the late investigative journalist Jack Anderson in 1981, back in those days when America’s reporters actually had the guts to investigate.

Jack Northman Anderson (1922–2005) was a newspaper columnist, syndicated by United Features Syndicate, who is considered one of the fathers of modern investigative journalism. Anderson won the 1972 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for his investigation on secret Nixon administration policy decision-making between the U.S. and Pakistan during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Anderson was a key and often controversial figure in reporting on J. Edgar Hoover’s apparent ties to the Mafia, the Watergate scandal, the John F. Kennedy assassination, the search for fugitive ex-Nazi officials in South America, and the savings and loan crisis. He also discovered a CIA plot to assassinate Fidel Castro.

Jack Anderson on CIA disinformation

Here are excerpts from Anderson’s article:

the Central Intelligence Agency is . . . trying to shut off channels of information to the electorate . . . and . . . spreading “disinformation” to news agency.

The most disturbing is the disinformation campaign. This poisons the well from which Americans draw the facts they need to govern themselves. The wise Thomas Jefferson sought to lay this issue to rest two centuries ago when he argued that the people’s right to know is more important than the officials’ right to govern.

Now along comes Bill Casey, the doddering CIA director, with the argument that the government has the right to mislead the public by planting phony stories in the press.

His purpose ostensibly is patriotic. He wants to build public support for the political, economic and military measures that the Reagan administration believes are necessary to counter the worldwide conspiracies of the Soviet Union.

Legal experts have warned that the CIA is forbidden by law from conducting operations within the United States and that disinformation aimed at the American public, therefore, would be illegal. But Casey has found a way that he thinks the CIA can get around the law. The disinformation will be planted with foreign news bureaus whose stories are routinely picked up by U.S. newspapers. […] Trusted CIA sources have told my associate Ron McRae that the foreign press, in the words of one insider, “is already being manipulated directly.”

My question is:

What makes us think the CIA had stopped its disinformation campaigns?

Recall that last February in an interview with Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network, retired four-star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, former Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet (1985-1987), the largest single military command in the world, said that the Benghazi attack on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, was a false flag “October surprise” that went horribly wrong.

According to Adm. Lyons, Obama intentionally had conspired with Muslim “terrorists” to stage a bogus attack against the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, and the bogus kidnapping of Ambassador Chris Stevens. If the plan had succeeded, Obama would successfully “negotiate” for Stevens’ release in a prisoner exchange for “Blind Sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman, which would bolster Obama’s then-mediocre approval ratings just prior to the 2012 election.

And so the Obama administration intentionally gutted security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi prior to the staged kidnapping of Stevens. But former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down. The two men raced to the U.S. compound and killed scores of attackers, but were themselves killed. Obama’s Muslim co-conspirators took Woods’ and Doherty’s heroism to mean Obama had reneged on the deal, so they took their anger out on Stevens by torturing him and dragging his body through the streets.

Benghazi smoking gun: White House email orchestrates propaganda blaming terrorist attack on a video

On September 11, 2012, the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi was attacked by a heavily armed group of 125-150 gunmen, whose trucks bore the logo of Ansar al-Sharia, a group of Islamist militants working with the local government to manage security in Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed during a series of raids, commencing at nightfall and continuing into the next morning. Ten others were injured. [Wikipedia]

Initially, it was reported that the Benghazi attack emerged from a spontaneous protest against a video, Innocence of Muslims. Subsequent investigations by the U.S. State Department; by the House of Representatives committees on Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, the Judiciary, and Oversight and Government Reform; and by the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence determined that there was no protest and that the attack was a planned terrorist attack launched by Islamist militants. [Wikipedia]

Fellowship of the Minds has published posts on how, from the beginning, the Obama administration had lied about the Benghazi attack being a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islamic video (see here and here).

Now, thanks to the tireless efforts of the nonpartisan citizen watchdog group Judicial Watch, we have the smoking gun in the form of an email from the White House instructing and coordinating a systematic propaganda campaign to portray the Benghazi attack as being, in the words of the email, “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” The White House-orchestrated propaganda was despite the fact that State Department officials initially had accurately described Benghazi as an “attack” and a possible kidnap attempt.

This email points to a CONSPIRACY. Those who are allergic to conspiracy theories and who portray conspiracy theorists as tinfoil hat-wearing kooks should take note.

The email was written by Benjamin J. Rhodes, then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser, and was dated September 14, 2012, 3 days after the Benghazi attack.

Ben Rhodes, Obama’s current deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, has been a foreign policy speechwriter for Obama since 2007. Rhodes is an advocate for U.S. “support” (read: arming, funding, and training) the Syrian rebels (read: jihadists). Rhodes’ wife is Ann Norris, chief foreign policy adviser to Senator Barbara Boxer; Rhodes’ brother, David, is president of CBS News. What a nice incestuous bunch!

UPDATE:

“Just minutes ago, the world was informed that a Select Committee investigation on Benghazi has finally been announced. This will bypass Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and will likely lead to the impeachment of Barack Obama and the end of Hillary Clinton’s career.
 
“The only question is why this hadn’t been done sooner. Benghazi was a massive system of crimes, cover ups, and outright lies by the Obama administration. Their goal was to win an election in 2012… but the cost might be impeachment in 2015.”

Retired 4-star admiral: Benghazi was an Obama false flag that went wrong

As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic public event that is:

  • False: The public are given an untruthful version of the event by the government and the media.
  • Results in a “rallying around the flag” effect: The objective is to arouse and manipulate the emotions (fear, anger, outrage, indignation) of the American people so that they’ll “rally around the flag” in an outburst of patriotism, supplying the current White House occupant and his (and his party’s) policies with their support and loyalty.

Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (US Navy, Ret.), 86, an officer of the U.S. Navy for 36 years, is the former Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet (1985-1987) — the largest single military command in the world. Today he is a columnist for The Washington Times and the chairman of the Center for Security Policy’s Military Committee. He is also a co-author, along with 18 other top national security professionals, of Shariah: The Threat to America.

In an interview with Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network., Adm. Lyons says that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, against the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, and the bogus kidnapping of Ambassador Chris Stevens.

According to the plan, Obama would successfully “negotiate” for Stevens’ release in a prisoner exchange, which would bolster the POS’s then-mediocre approval ratings just prior to the 2012 election.

In Lyons’ words, “The attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi . . . was the result of a bungled abduction attempt . . . the first stage of an international prisoner exchange . . . that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’.”

Admiral Lyons’ assertions make sense. They would explain many of the oddities of the Benghazi incident, including:

Note: Admiral Lyons had made these accusations back in November 2012, and nothing came of it. But there isn’t much else he can do, which is why he and others. in a Jan. 6, 2014 letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner signed by more than 70 people, are demanding a Congressional select committee to investigate the Benghazi debacle. But their demands are falling on the GOP establishment’s deaf ears.

The Battling Boys of Benghazi

Tyrone Woods & Glen DohertyR.I.P. ex-Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who died while defending staff at the U.S. diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, on September 12, 2012.

THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI

By Anonymous (a U.S. Marine Corps officer)

We’re the battling boys of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
defending our country we loved so well.
It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.

We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
led them to safety, and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
but we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
so we fought, and we fought, and we fought ’til we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.
Just two dead SEALS who carried the load,
no thanks to us,
we were just “bumps on the road“.

Americans in Benghazi attack sent distress calls, pleading for their lives

chris-stevens1Clockwise from top left: Ambassador Christopher Stevens; Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith; former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Rest in Peace

This makes me weep . . . .

Americans trapped in Benghazi that awful night of Sept. 11, 2012, were pleading for their lives — for someone to rescue them.

But their Commander In Chief was thousands of miles away that night in the White House and disappeared for hours — hours about which the White House refuses to account. Their Commander In Chief was so blasé, he actually went to bed and slept, then hopped onto Air Force One the next day to fly to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.

Later that month, in an interview, their Commander In Chief airily dismissed their deaths as mere “bumps on the road“. Later still, when she was hauled before a Congressional hearing, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, too, dismissed their deaths with the quip, “What does it matter?”

POS and Broomhilda

Catherine Herridge reports for Fox News, Nov. 20, 2013:

State Department employees at the Benghazi compound knew they were in a death trap and made a series of radio distress calls to the CIA annex during the terror assault last year, according to congressional sources familiar with recent testimony on the attack from five CIA personnel.

Sources told Fox News that the radio calls, which were described in closed testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, were characterized as almost frantic, with State Department employees who knew they could not defend themselves “pleading” for their lives. 

When the CIA team arrived from the annex about a mile away, they found the State Department employees without guns that could adequately protect them; one of the agents was found hiding in the consulate, apparently in a closet. The testimony lends more weight to repeated claims, in the wake of the attack, that the consulate was not adequately protected despite being located in a volatile and violent area prone to attack. 

When the CIA personnel were asked for their reaction to the administration’s initial explanation that an anti-Islam video and a demonstration gone awry were to blame for the attack, Fox News is told they were seething with anger because everything on the ground — from their perspective — showed it was a premeditated attack. 

At least three of the five — who were all in Benghazi — responded to the scene that night. The witnesses testified that five mortars rained down on the annex in less than a minute. They pointed to those details as more evidence of a professionally trained team, describing the attack on the annex as akin to a professional hit on the operation in order to drive it out of Benghazi.

Congressional sources say the testimony seems to further conflict with and undercut the briefing three days after the attack by then-CIA Director David Petraeus, who likened the attack to a flash mob. When pressed on the number and precision of the mortars, Petraeus offered that Benghazi was flooded with mortars, and played down their accuracy by suggesting they could have been fired from the back of a pick-up truck.

When Petraeus appeared on the Hill in November, following his resignation from the CIA over his admitted affair, he tried to claim that he knew it was a terrorist attack all along and insisted that he did not put the emphasis on the anti-Islam film.

What was Pres. Lucifer doing while Americans were being killed in Benghazi?

Where was Obama, the Commander In Chief (CIC), when a United States consulate was being attacked and an ambassador and three other Americans were being killed?

On Fox News Sunday, May 19, 2013, that’s the question asked of White House aide Dan Pfeiffer.

Where was Barack Obama’s whereabouts the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when our consulate in Benghazi was besieged and Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department official Sean Smith, and ex-Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed? The terrorist attack lasted all night long at multiple locations in Benghazi. We now know that an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone was in the skies over Benghazi that night, and that the White House knew (and saw) what was happening, as it happened.

But while insisting that Obama had kept “in constant touch that night with his national security team and kept up to date with the events as they were happening,” Pfeiffer deemed the CIC’s whereabouts that night, and specifically whether Obama  was in the Situation Room, “a largely irrelevant fact.”

In an op-ed for Politico, Rich Lowry writes:

Obama’s actions and nonactions on that terrible night are a blank spot in his presidency. We simply don’t know much about them, and the White House has always been perfectly content to leave it that way.

We know he was meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey on an unrelated matter at 5 p.m. Washington time, when he learned of the attack. In congressional testimony, Panetta said he had no contact with the president or the White House after that point.

Dempsey said he didn’t hear from the president, either. […]

Next, we know that the president talked to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at 10 p.m., when the assault that killed Chris Stevens and State Department computer expert Sean Smith was over but the mortar attack that killed two former U.S. Navy SEALs at another facility hadn’t yet taken place.

What about the rest of the time? […]

The day after his mystery night, Obama publicly emerged. He gave a statement at 10:35 a.m. condemning the Benghazi attack — and left Washington at 2:20 p.m. for a fundraiser in Las Vegas.”

Obama3187.jpg

a self-described “conservative homosexual” who lives in Chicago and blogs on HillBuzz, believes Obama was high on cocaine during those “missing hours” of the Benghazi attack.

In his post of May 24, 2013, DuJan writes:

If you’ve ever known anyone who is a drug addict, you’d see it’s obvious that Barack Obama was high on cocaine the night of Benghazi; it is the only logical explanation for his disappearance and the White House’s refusal to comment on what he was doing at the time.  Since this was a night of great crisis for our country, the only logical reason that the White House won’t explain where the president was is if this man was high as a kite on illegal narcotics at the time. […]

According to Lowry’s timeline:

* Obama appeared sober on 9/11/12 at 5pm EST when he met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey. […] Obama appears to have been still functional and ambulatory at 5pm that day.

* Lowry says that Obama learned of the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens at this meeting…before Obama disappeared for many hours. These are the mystery “missing hours” that the White House refuses to talk about.

* Obama next emerged from cloister at 10pm EST 9/11/12 when he spoke with Hillary Clinton; it’s not stated if this was in person or if it was on the phone, but it sure feels like Obama was out of his mind on drugs when this happened.  Clinton would never bust him on this (because she can never say a bad word about this man if she wants to secure the black vote in 2016), but even people on a late-80s-Wall-Street-grade binge of cocaine can talk on the phone for a few minutes. […]

* Obama then went missing until the next morning. […]

* Lowry then says Obama was next spotted at 1035am EST on 9/12/12 when he pretended the Benghazi attack was about some YouTube video…and then he disappeared again until he boarded his plane for fabulous Las Vegas at 220pm EST later that day.

After reading Lowry’s article, my good friend Justine in California emailed me to ask whether I thought Obama was having sex with Reggie Love during the “missing hours” and if that’s where he was. […]

I think Obama doing cocaine is a much better explanation for his missing hours, simply because at his age and with all the men he’s been with it’s not like he couldn’t just stop romancing Reggie for a little bit…and then get back to it when they were in Vegas. I know the stereotype of gay guys is that we’re all sex-crazed and can’t control ourselves, but even the biggest gay sexual glutton in the world can pull himself away from a hot guy long enough to take care of something important (if need be). It’s not like this would have been the first time that Barack Obama was having gay sex…so surely he could have pushed “pause” to be president for a while (before getting back to whatever he was up to when the crisis was over).

However, once you take drugs you are pretty much on another astral plane for however long it takes for the drugs to leave your system.  I’ve sadly watched a lot of incredible people in the nightlife scene ruin their lives with cocaine over the years, and once these people got high they stayed high until the drugs metabolized enough for them to function. […]

The timeline Lowry fleshed out perfectly fits a scenario where Barack Obama retired to his private quarters (perhaps with Reggie Love…or maybe one of the other low-ranking young men who are forever suspiciously palling around with this president, unlike any president before him) sometime around 6pm EST or so on 9/11/12. He then seems to have taken drugs (which I believe most likely involved cocaine). Hillary Clinton either showed up to kill his buzz or she kept calling on the phone over and over again until he answered at 10pm. […]

From then until the staff was finally able to rouse, dress, and make him presentable enough for the public at 1030am the next day. Barack Obama appears to have been out of his mind high on drugs.

Since the White House deliberately is insisting that it’s “irrelevant” where Obama was during those missing hours that Lowry has asked about, we must assume I’m correct and the President of the United States was incapacitated from heavy narcotics use.

I would gladly retract this story if the White House would sufficiently explain Barack Obama’s whereabouts during those missing hours and prove he was not out of his mind on cocaine at the time (or gluttonously engaged in gay sex, as my friend Justine believes). 

You should know by now that whenever the Obama Regime stonewalls and absolutely refuses to reveal information mysteriously, there is a reason for it.

With this particular president, that reason more often than not involves drugs or gay sex (or a combination of both)…and just like with John F. Kennedy’s own drug use and sexual escapades, there are many people who will refuse to believe this about Obama for decades. But, at some point in the future I hope you live long enough to see people openly talking about Obama’s drug use and homosexuality, as it’s as clear as day for those of us who are gay and have known people with drug problems as rampant as this president’s. It’s not like the man disappeared off the face of the Earth into another dimension during those “missing hours”.  But, I suppose it’s uncomfortable for a lot of people to imagine what he was really doing during that mystery time.

So what do you think the POS was doing in those mystery missing hours?
