(Truthstream Media) At least, that’s what I’ve been told. I really shouldn’t waste my time focusing on them. They’re no big deal, just a bunch of paper pushers, really.
Interesting advice considering the dire warnings in David Wise’s 1976 book, The American Police State: The Government against the People.
Here’s a short piece of the description from the book’s inner jacket:
The American Police State tells in detail how the CIA, FBI, IRS, NSA and other agencies have spied on Americans, engaged in break-ins, wiretapping, bugging, mail-opening, and other forms of government lawbreaking under seven Administrations, from Roosevelt to Nixon to Ford. It documents how this uniquely American form of a police state has come about, and shows how the power of the government is used against political enemies in the name of “national security.”
Sound familiar? Of course, that was four decades ago. Guess it isn’t all that uniquely American anymore these days, sadly.
The video above details a particularly fascinating chapter titled, “CIA: The Spying Comes Home.”
Wise also warns the book should have a major impact on “the continuing debate over how to control our intelligence agencies before they control us.”
Before they control us…
That was nearly four decades ago, and now here we are.
It was in the book 63 Documents the Government Doesn’t Want You to Read that Jesse Ventura asked a question that no one can really seem to answer (and no one official is even asking).
He was talking about how the CIA appears to answer to no one, not even the president anymore. “They’re supposed to be the president’s arm on foreign intelligence, but the best way I can put it is: There’s been an amputation. That body part isn’t attached anymore. Time and again, the CIA thumbs its nose even at presidents,” Ventura wrote.
He concludes by asking, “So who runs this agency if the president doesn’t?”
If they really were just a bunch of “paper pushers,” a question like that might not even be worth asking in the first place. Wise’s book, his detailed accounts and warnings of the illegal domestic operations against the American public going down four decades ago and everything that has happened since proves they are anything but.
An answer to Ventura’s question is long overdue.
