VSF: The CIA is said by many to have become the World Drug Cartel. We know about Zapata Oil, the Clintons in Mena AK, Air America in the Viet Nam era, and now the poppy fields in Afghanistan — which are likely the source of the Big Pharma opiod crisis. No wonder our country continues its descent into depraved corruption. This is an excellent book, heart breaking, that will open eyes.
The CIA as Organized Crime: How Illegal Operations Corrupt America and the World / January 15, 2017 / by Douglas Valentine (Author)
This book provides a cross-section of Douglas Valentine’s investigations into CIA engagement in terrorism, drugs, and propaganda. Author of three books on CIA operations, Valentine’s research into CIA activities began when CIA Director William Colby gave him free access to interview CIA officials who had been involved in various aspects of the Phoenix program in South Vietnam. It was a permission Colby was to regret. The CIA would rescind it, making every effort to impede publication of The Phoenix Program, which documented the CIA’s elaborate system of population surveillance, control, entrapment, imprisonment, torture and assassination in Vietnam.
While researching Phoenix, Valentine learned that the CIA allowed opium and heroin to flow from its secret bases in Laos, to generals and politicians on its payroll in South Vietnam. His investigations into this illegal activity focused on the CIA’s relationship with the federal drugs agencies mandated by Congress to stop illegal drugs from entering the United States. Based on interviews with senior officials, Valentine wrote two subsequent books, The Strength of the Wolf and The Strength of the Pack, showing how the CIA infiltrated federal drug law enforcement agencies and commandeered their executive management, intelligence and foreign operations staffs in order to ensure that the flow of drugs continues unimpeded to traffickers and foreign officials in its employ.
Ultimately, portions of his research materials would be archived at the National Security Archive, Texas Tech University’s Vietnam Center, and John Jay College.
This book includes excerpts from the above titles along with subsequent articles and transcripts of interviews on a range of current topics, with a view to shedding light on the systemic dimensions of the CIA’s ongoing illegal and extra-legal activities. These terrorism and drug law enforcement articles and interviews illustrate how the CIA’s activities impact social and political movements abroad and in the United States.
A common theme is the CIA’s ability to deceive and propagandize the American public through its impenetrable government-sanctioned shield of official secrecy and plausible deniability.
Though investigated by the Church Committee in 1975, CIA praxis then continues to inform CIA praxis now. Valentine tracks its steady infiltration into practices targeting the last population to be subjected to the exigencies of the American empire: the American people.
from an amazon review: The author has been warning us for decades about the clear and present danger that is the CIA. I was unaware of Valentine’s work for most of those years, perhaps because our media outlets (even the “anti-establishment” ones like Democracy Now and The Intercept) have been compromised. Valentine’s work has been suppressed since his ground-breaking book on the Phoenix Program.
Not that I didn’t know anything about the sordid history. I knew about MK-Ultra, some of the agency’s drug running and empire-building exploits. This work goes much deeper and paints a much bigger picture. The extent of the agency’s influence is much greater than I had imagined.
This is not another history book about dirty tricks. It is not just about our insane foreign policy and empire building. The cancer of corruption, of outright crime, has metastasized into every agency of the government right here in the US itself.
Those dirty tricks and crimes have become domestic policy- in fusion centers and Homeland Security, in the militarization of local police and in Congress, from Wall Street to Main Street. Border Patrol, the DEA, Justice and State have all been compromised. Want to know why the DEA is losing the war on drugs, how torture has become policy? Want to know why the government no longer represents your interests? Look no further.
The problem is now. We are the new targets.
Read it and weep, but for God’s sake, please read it.
A highly informative and comprehensive book, and a scathing, fearless indictment of government corruption.
I cannot overstate it’s importance.
Quotations from the above book by Douglas Valentine:
“ … When the United States took over drug law enforcement in Afghanistan, opium production increased dramatically. … Afghan heroin is flooding the US & Europe. It still is. … all the opium warlords are on the CIA payroll. The DEA sends six hundred agents to Afghanistan to make sure nobody knows about it.”
“I think the CIA is the mega cartel. … certainly no other organization in the world knows as much about drug trafficking. The CIA has computer systems that contain every bit of information about every trafficker and trafficking group; it knows where they bank and where they invest; it can predict their moves, whether in Afghanistan or in Mexico. … Since 1973 the CIA has been in control of US narcotics intelligence worldwide.”
Jesus was killed over debt money / Michael Hudson
Published on Oct 2, 2018
Economist Michael Hudson describes how Jesus was killed by the Romans over his desires to have debtors debts cancelled. Debt cancellation was opposed by the leading Jewish Rabbis. Jesus spoke about in his early sermons. Jesus went to the Temple unrolled the scroll of Isiah and proclaimed the Jubilee year. The creditor interests took control of the Jewish church, and had Jesus killed for trying to restore people from their DEBTS , NOT sins. The word SIN and DEBT are the SAME in archaic language. That’s what debts originally was taken up for, to pay for causing a sin, or personal injury.
