CIA spreads disinformation to news agencies

Rate this post

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.
Here’s a scanned image of a column Anderson wrote on the disinformation campaign waged against Americans by the CIA, which was published on September 22, 1981, in the Santa Cruz Sentinel. (Source: Activist Post)

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.

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

  1. This story always made the most sense.

  2. I hadn’t seen that story until now! You make a very compelling argument, Dr. Eowyn.

  3. We expect trust government to conduct clandestine missions and not put them on the front page of the New York Times.
    But with that trust is that they are Patriotic Americans whose highest priorities are to uphold the Constitution and defend and protect America.
    The extremist Capitalists and extreme Socialists were at it, but both were more or less in balance.
    But that isn’t the case now and during a few past administrations.
    Ike was straight; JFK was not driven by greed. But after they snuffed JFK we have been in decline with regards to those priorities.
    It is giving the WH a big benefit of the doubt that the motives were merely to spike the poll numbers, especially in light the other moves they’ve made to transform us.
    We are so screwed

  4. Given this subject matter, perhaps an article that was recently posted by one investigative journalist might be useful for other readers here: Needless to say google seems to be part of an apparatus to spy on the ‘net and people in general, and perhaps that is the point, if it is illegal for the CIA to conduct operations within the U.S. perhaps they get around that by “proxy-ing” their operations through a front corporation (ala google, TOR networks, etc.) and as such, aren’t “directly” conducting any operations within the U.S… just a thought.

  5. Dis-Information is how the Progressive Globalist Elites separate peoples to conduct perpetual wars for profit. Elites (Government) profit all the while the common man pays the price. Starvation, torture, etc,
    Government-Media market fear, terror; essentially domestic Psychological Warfare Operations by manipulating, directly and indirectly, Event Illusory Correlation with manufactured consent of the masses being the objective.
    Manufactured consent is part of our global vocabulary, consciousness due in no small part to Noam Chomsky’s book Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media.
    If the Government-Media create an Event Illusory Correlation of violence, death, reinforce it with emotions to include making a case for National Security then it does not matter whether the String is real or illusory they have succeeded in manufacturing consent for their agenda and pogroms.
    {It is important to understand Event Correlation serves a positive purpose in and for survival of the species, criminal investigations and literature as a partial list of examples.}

  8. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post. Clearly, what the Admiral has said makes perfect sense in light of the facts as you have set forth for us to remember. This is a most horrific and terrible abomination.
