CIA to Reveal Decades of Misdeeds

The US Central Intelligence Agency is to declassify hundreds of documents detailing some of the agency's worst illegal abuses from the 1950s to 1970s.


The papers, to be released next week, will detail assassination plots, domestic spying and wiretapping, kidnapping and human experiments.

Many of the incidents are already known, but the documents are expected to give more comprehensive accounts.

It is "unflattering" but part of agency history, CIA chief Michael Hayden said.

"This is about telling the American people what we have done in their name," Gen Hayden told a conference of foreign policy historians.

The documents, dubbed the "Family Jewels", offer a "glimpse of a very different time and a very different agency".

The full 693-page file detailing CIA illegal activities was compiled on the orders of the then CIA director James Schlesinger in 1973.

He had been alarmed by accounts of CIA involvement in the Watergate scandal under his predecessor and asked CIA officials to inform him of all activities that fell outside the agency's legal charter.

'Skeletons'

Ahead of the documents' release by the CIA, the National Security Archive, an independent research body, on Thursday published related papers it had obtained.

These detail government discussions in 1975 of the CIA abuses and briefings by Mr Schlesinger's successor at the CIA, William Colby, who said the CIA had "done some things it shouldn't have".

Among the incidents that were said to "present legal questions" were:

  • the confinement of a Soviet defector in the mid-1960s
  • assassination plots of foreign leaders, including Cuba's Fidel Castro
  • wiretapping and surveillance of journalists
  • behaviour modification experiments on "unwitting" US citizens
  • surveillance of dissident groups between 1967 and 1971
  • opening from 1953 to 1973 of letters to and from the Soviet Union; from 1969 to 1972 of mail to and from China

The papers also convey mounting concern in President Gerald Ford's administration that what were dubbed the CIA's "skeletons" were surfacing in the media.

Henry Kissinger, then both secretary of state and national security adviser, was against Mr Colby's moves to investigate the CIA's past abuses and the fact that agency secrets were being divulged.

Accusations appearing in the media about the CIA were "worse than in the days of McCarthy", Mr Kissinger said.

OPERATION DISTRACT PUBLIC FROM 9/11 TRUTH

Let us take a listen Inside the conspirators bunker...

"ODPFT plan B: throw the unwashed gullible masses a bone of truth about the CIA to pick on. They will feel self- satisfied and will hopefully, finally drop their 'search for truth'. They are stupid, but unfortunately they are no longer scared. ODPFT plan A: 'Terrorists Over Every Shoulder', has lost it's effectiveness."

"Sir, what if plan B doesn't work?"

"Then we switch to OPERATION EVERY CONSPIRATOR FOR THEMSELF plan A: find U.S.- friendly countries WITHOUT extradition treaties. Oh, and put everything you've got into gold, we are going to need it. My father always told me not to shit where I eat, dammit, I should have listened!"

"They took it from the top to the bottom, we're gonna take them from the bottom to the top." - Dan Wallace

To the LIAR in the picture...

...who tried to tell a reporter that Article IV of the Bill Of Rights doesnt have anything to do with "probable cause" and only involves "unreasonable" searches and siezures...

Article IV of The Bill Of Rights - The Constitution Of The United States
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and siezures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, BUT UPON PROBABLE CAUSE, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be siezed."

End Article IV
End Story

Do you reckon there will be any "real" truths revealed next week, or just what they want us to see ?

I hope it's not the case but after all I have seen and learnt, it's hard to be optimistic...

Best wishes

THATS EXACTLY THE ONE!

And I am sooooooo glad you posted the hypocrite Olbermann saying so, because he recently decided to subscribe to the Constitutional LIARS club himself, discussing the second ammendment. He said on air "The second ammendment is so organized state malitias can bear arms, not the people, go read the ammendment". I NEVER watched his show again.

Dear Mr. Olbermann, gun-grabber-boot-licker, constitutional liar, let us discuss the second ammendment, shall wee?....

Article II of The Bill Of Rights - The Constitution Of The United States
"A well regulated Malitia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

The people form the "well regualted Malitia" to preserve and protect THE FREE STATE, not "a state", or "state malitia", the State being the entire UNION - the country --you lying bastard.

Do you reckon there will be any "real" truths revealed next week, or just what they want us to see ?
Haha, the CIA investigating itself? Or anyone investigating the CIA? LOL, no way.
Its like Satan himself telling us he's gonna be investigated, and promising tell the truth. :)

this thing is gonna omit

this thing is gonna omit more than the 9/11 Commission Report did. goddamn liars.

"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media." ~ William Colby, Former Director, CIA

So what's new?

This report has the feel of AA meetings where alcoholics admit that they're abusers- it doesn't undo past damage or predict a clean future for the confessors, though it does provide hope. I'm curious what they will omit. "Trust us- We are the good guys...really! "(yeah right). Twelve steps to prison has a better ring to it.

assassinations huh? does

assassinations huh? does that include domestic coups? cant wait for this farce......

CIA to air decades of its dirty laundry
Assassination attempts, domestic spying among the abuses

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19360920

In anticipation of the CIA's release, the National Security Archive at George Washington University yesterday published a separate set of documents from January 1975 detailing internal government deliberations of the abuses. Those documents portray a rising sense of panic within the administration of President Gerald R. Ford that what then-CIA Director William E. Colby called "skeletons" in the CIA's closet had begun to be revealed in news accounts.

An article about the CIA's infiltration of antiwar groups, published by New York Times reporter Seymour Hersh in December 1974, was "just the tip of the iceberg," then-Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger warned Ford, according to a Jan. 3 memorandum of their conversation.

Kissinger warned that if other operations were divulged, "blood will flow. For example, Robert Kennedy personally managed the operation on the assassination of [Cuban President Fidel] Castro." Kennedy was the attorney general from 1961 to 1964.

Worried that the disclosures could lead to criminal prosecutions, Kissinger added that "when the FBI has a hunting license into the CIA, this could end up worse for the country than Watergate," the scandal that led to the fall of the Nixon administration the previous year.

In a meeting at which Colby detailed the worst abuses -- after telling the president "we have a 25-year old institution which has done some things it shouldn't have" -- Ford said he would appoint a presidential commission to look into the matter. "We don't want to destroy but to preserve the CIA. But we want to make sure that illegal operations and those outside the [CIA] charter don't happen," Ford said.

“We're an empire now, and when we act we create our own reality."

Perhaps a little preemptive innoculation.....

....of corruption for the American people, so when the tidal wave of 9/11 Truth soon comes rushing down through Main Street America, the public won't be so shocked by news of government criminality against it's own citizens.

Maybe the CIA will be made the fall-guy.

Good point, Altruist! What is the motive behind this?

The GOP is acting with such devil-may-care attitude, it leads me to think that shit could hit fan soon!!

I had a thought about the Pelosi "impeachment off the table" and the related similar remarks by other Dems...I wonder if they realized that the only way to take down the Bushitti Crime Family is by stealth...perhaps we are in for some wild times, with Bush, Cheney and Rove all being escorted out of the WH in cuffs...one can only hope.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. military command in charge of protecting the homeland asked the Pentagon earlier this year for a contingent of special operations officers to help with domestic anti-terrorism missions...

...."Keating's request to the Pentagon raised some eyebrows because of the sensitivity of deploying commandos domestically. Under U.S. Special Operations Command, covert warriors are playing a key role in fighting terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere overseas.

"The possibility for military operations in the U.S. is something that we have to plan for in the age of international terrorism," said Daniel Gallington, a former policy adviser to former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.:...
