Response to Christopher Ketcham's take on Bob Baer (CIA)
Ketcham keeps bolstering the Big Lie by pretending that the incompetence theory of 9/11 has merit. In numerous ways he defends the criminal actions of high level players who have a long history of helping terrorists and funding their networks. While admitting to such practices in the distant past, Ketchum ignores the period leading up to 9/11 as well as the present.
What Ketcham should have grilled Baer about is terrorism by proxy: ISI and Saudi intelligence in particular, (MI6, BND and Mossad also engage in this practice).
It is no longer even denied that ISI created and protected "Al Qaeda," and assists the Taliban to this day, nor is it reasonable to deny that the USA funds the ISI.
Much credible evidence links the Saudi government to the 9/11 hijackers, and we don't hear anything about that, despite Senator Graham's open admissions of the facts. FBI surveillance showed links between a Saudi agent and the Saudi embassy, as he assisted hijackers in San Diego.
If the Saudi government sponsors "act of war" and US government officials protect Saudis from repurcussions, then US government officials are committing high treason = "aid and comfort" to the "enemy."
Let's also ask Mr. Baer about "Visa Express." How did ALL of the hijackers receive US entry visas despite being profoundly unqualified to receive them?
Why have former State Department official Michael Springman's accusations gone unanswered? Springman states unequivocally that numerous radical Islamist "terrorists" were given visas by CIA after state department officers denied them.
We also have a BLOCKED, that's right blocked memo from CIA Counter Terrorism Center liason who worked for FBI. Blocked memo allows known "Al Qaeda" terrorist to come into USA and allegedly fly plane into Pentagon. No follow up? More treason.
More presidential medals of grandeur?
Further issues with this Ketchum article:
"He says he prevented a terrorist attack on the USS New Jersey, which was to be rocketed off the coast of Lebanon."
Everyone concerned knows the difference between a military attack and a terrorist attack. This is juvenile.
"But the WMDs were an illusion, and meanwhile there were dissenters on the ground in the CIA who said as much and were ignored."
FABRICATION, not "illusion." Lying to Congress and the world, ergo a criminal fraud and conspiracy.
Numerous crimes are discussed, numerous violations of international law, the UN charter -- but no calling a conspiracy a conspiracy.
The CIA should be dismantled and its operations made illegal. Its partnerships with other criminal intelligence agencies should be terminated, and terrorism should actually be opposed, not just in soundbites.
Even the drug trafficking references ignore the elephant in the room right now: Afghanistan. It also ignores the CIA's long involvement in Afghanistan with drug lords being the main allies. As in Colombia, drugs are a profitable side-venture for the CIA and are not opposed despite the "possible severe consequences." The USA partners with drug lords around the world and protects them. This is big business.
