Dr. James David Manning explains as Lincoln and JFK were assassinated, so too will Obama be, by the CIA and in the video below he explains why he believes this. Manning makes it clear it is his belief that this will happen because Obama’s “purpose was fraudulent from the beginning.”

Worldwide Militarization and the Weapons Industry: America’s Surveillance and Targeted Assassination Machine | Global Research
Perpetual mass-media deception and pervasive surveillance encompass a never ending train of abuse that won’t end any time soon. As long as armaments factories continue producing weapons of death for the fortune 500 Wall Street elite who reside in U.S. capitalist society, war and threats of war will continue to expand and take on an ever deadly character.
Over 1000 military bases stationed, world-wide, nuclear weapons, a nuclear, first-strike posture by U.S. anti-ballistic missile systems and thousands of tanks, planes, bombers, armadas, special forces killer teams, hundreds of proxies and the Central Intelligence Agency that massacres civilians in Pakistan with drones on a routine basis, not because the missiles are missing their targets as claimed but because slaughtering civilians is a rapacious and depraved tool of the U.S. war mongers and their imperial war machine–that includes the civilian CIA, for resource control against Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia and any other nation the U.S. bombs to sustain its militarized war economy and claim to control the world’s most coveted petroleum resources in the Caspian Basin and Africa.

BREAKING>>> GOP Rep: Obama WH Is Hiding Benghazi Survivors AND CHANGING THEIR NAMES Video | The Gateway Pundit
This came after Jake Tapper at CNN broke the news that there were “dozens” of CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi on 9-11 when the consulate came under attack and the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.Gowdy told Greta the Obama Administration is hiding the survivors, dispersing them around the country, AND changing their names…………..
CIA Agents Who Were In Benghazi Warned By CIA: Keep Silent – “You Jeopardize Your Family”Freedom Outpost ^ | Aug 2, 2013 | Tim BrownPosted on Friday, August 02, 2013 11:14:41 AM by EXCH54FEOn Thursday, CNN’s Jake Tapper reported that the Central Intelligence Agency is now pressuring agents who were on the ground in Benghazi, Libya on the night of September 11, 2012 to keep silent and not talk to Congress or the media.
The Hill reports:The CIA allegedly had “dozens” of agency operatives on the ground at the U.S. diplomatic annex in Benghazi, Libya, during last year’s deadly terrorist attack that ended with the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.Langley is taking extreme measures to mask the agency’s operations in Benghazi and in northern Libya at the time of the strike, according to CNN.Agency employees involved with CIA operations in the country are being subjected to monthly polygraph tests, among other counterintelligence measures, an unnamed source told CNN.
How 911 Really Happened… “Secrecy was no problem. Anyone with foreknowledge of the plan, who considered revealing the daring operation out of guilt or misgiving, would be either threatened personally, have their family threatened and have their story ridiculed and denied. After all, who in the media would have believed 9-11 before it happened? Media complicity, among top directors of the US media, was understood well in advance.”
…..The attacks were masterminded by a select few of interconnected insiders who, not surprisingly, remain in power today. Certain key members of Congress, the CIA, Mossad, Pentagon, and the White House organized the plan to perfection.

» Study: Conspiracy theorists’ sane; government dupes crazy, hostile Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!
Recent studies by psychologists and social scientists in the US and UK suggest that contrary to mainstream media stereotypes, those labeled “conspiracy theorists” appear to be saner than those who accept the official versions of contested events.
The most recent study was published on July 8th by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent (UK). Entitled “What about Building 7? A social psychological study of online discussion of 9/11 conspiracy theories,” the study compared “conspiracist” (pro-conspiracy theory) and “conventionalist” (anti-conspiracy) comments at news websites.
Pentagon Orders Purge of Osama Bin Laden’s Death Files from Data Bank … “The Pentagon spokesperson denied the fact that the removal of these files was to avoid the legal requirements of the Freedom of Information Act. But secretly moving the records allowed the Pentagon to tell The Associated Press that it couldn’t find any documents inside the Defense Department that AP had requested more than two years ago, and could represent a new strategy for the U.S. government to shield even its most sensitive activities from public scrutiny. New York Daily News According to the official statement, the record transfer from the Pentagon to the CIA has nothing to do with…”| Global Research
A new wave of camouflage is underway at the Pentagon and the CIA. The bin Laden “death files” contained in the Pentagon’s data bank have become the object of controversy.
Navy Vice Admiral William McRaven has been entrusted in removing these secret military files concerning the May 2011 Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden’s alleged hideout in Abbotabad, Pakistan from the Pentagon’s data banks.
The files of the bin Laden SEAL operation had to be removed to sustain the Big Lie. Osama was allegedly killed on the orders of the US government, despite ample evidence that he was already dead at the time of the attack:
… the US government pulled off one of the most audacious stunts of the 21st century, when on May 2nd 2011 they claimed to have killed Osama bin Laden during a Navy SEAL operation in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
The contemptuously sloppy story spun by the US government, parroted without question by the controlled corporate media, and obligingly swallowed by a largely gullible Western public, was dubious in the extreme. (Brit Dee, Global Research, May 03, 2012)
Why Was JFK Murdered? by Donna Coe… “Citizen denial is a term that should be easy to understand. The difficulty is to determine whether citizen denial was the mindset in 1963 and whether it is our mindset today. Plausible deniability is a term coined by the CIA during the Kennedy administration. It is a term used to describe the withholding of information from senior officials in order to protect them from repercussions in the event that illegal or unpopular activities by the CIA became public knowledge. “
A few years ago while traveling to Connecticut I came across a book written by James W. Douglass, “JFK and The Unspeakable, Why He Died and What It Matters”. At the time I thought it was just another book with more of the same worn-out conclusions. I had no interest in reading it.
It wasn’t until recently when I came across an interview given by Lew Rockwell, that my interest in this book reached a renewed level of curiosity. Reading JFK and The Unspeakable prompted me to write to you today.
Mr. Douglass taps into an entirely different approach. His approach is less about “who” pulled the trigger and more about “why” citizen denial overwhelming took hold of our nation’s mindset, in addition to the role of government’s plausible deniability, and how these elements allowed the unspeakable to occur.
Before I continue some of the terminology and circumstances Mr. Douglass discusses will need a brief explanation:

At a secret February ceremony at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., the chief of the CIA’s base in Benghazi the night of the 9/11 anniversary attacks there was awarded one of the agency’s highest intelligence medals, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.
The honor given behind closed doors to “Bob,” the officer who was in charge of the Benghazi intelligence annex and CIA base that was attacked in the early morning of September 12, 2012 and then abandoned for nearly three weeks, illustrates the murky lines of command that preceded the attack, and helped make it a politically volatile issue.

The Benghazi affair is on fire and it could possibly go nuclear soon.
It is now very clear that the Obama regime scrubbed the truth from the Benghazi talking points.
Politics: It would be naïve to expect any White House to ignore the political implications of a foreign policy crisis occurring two months before a presidential election. But there is a reason why no White House admits to finessing a tragedy: It’s unseemly. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland injected politics into the U.S. response to Benghazi when she raised objections to draft “talking points” being prepared for Rice’s television appearances.
I never met Malcolm Shabazz, the outspoken activist whose grandfather, Malcolm X, was the most influential African-American of the 20th century. Now I will never meet him. According to reports, Malcolm Shabazz was recently murdered in Mexico.
I had been hoping to get to know Malcolm Shabazz at last February’s Hollywoodism Conference in Tehran. But the US National Security State had other ideas. While trying to catch his flight to Tehran, Malcolm was arrested by the FBI. No explanation for the arrest was ever provided.
Why did US authorities prevent Malcolm from traveling to Iran?

Former famed CIA director David Petraeus apologized last week for his blackmail-able extramarital affair with sycophant author Paula Broadwell that “caused such pain for [his] family, friends and supporters,” during an event honoring the military at the University of Southern California.
While it must have been devastating for his wife Holly of 37 years to have to go to the family doctor to be tested for sexually transmitted diseases thanks to her husband’s infidelity and lies—something all spouses and partners need to do under such circumstances, that is between them.
The truth is Petraeus is getting off easy. Sex has a provided him with cover that conceals his real record worthy of apology, explanation, and contrition; a record no number of shiny medals can camouflage that has hurt America’s national security while destroying and continuing to destroy military families.

David Petraeus apologized in front of an audience of about 600, who welcomed him with a standing ovation, for an extramarital affair with his biographer in his first public speech since resigning as the head of the CIA.
“Needless to say, I join you, keenly aware that I am regarded in a different light now than I was a year ago,” Petraeus said Tuesday night to an audience of mostly veterans at the University of Southern California’s annual ROTC dinner at a hotel in Los Angeles…….

Most likely he was either poisoned or infected with cancer causing substances. Four cancer surgeries in 18 months raise suspicions.Chavez knew he was marked for death. He said so numerous times. Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez believes Washington and Israel conspired to kill him.
He called it similar to how Israel murdered Yasser Arafat. Radioactive polonium poisoning killed him. Forensic evidence proved it.On March 12, acting President Nicolas Marudo said a state commission will investigate his death.
“Important scientists from different countries” will be involved.Maduro believes forensic evidence will show Chavez was “injected by imperialist forces.”He “was poisoned by dark forces in order to hit at the Venezuelan people and Latin America,” he stressed.
More information on his cancer will be explained later. It “didn’t correspond with any of the normal behaviors of the illness.”“He received lots of death threats.
Maybe they didn’t manage to it through a direct attempt” on his life.“Everything seems to indicate that they managed to affect his health using the most advanced techniques.”For decades, America experimented with cancer causing substances. Expert technologies exist. Assassination by bullet, bomb, slit throat, or plane crash reflects policy. Why not incurable diseases?William Blum’s done some of the best research on America’s successful and failed political assassinations. On March 12, he headlined
“I Personally Believe That Hugo Chavez Was Murdered By The United States.”He thinks CIA operatives may have been involved. Post-WW II, they targeted over 50 foreign leaders for removal. Some died. Others lived.Fidel Castro survived hundreds of assassination attempts. He knows better than anyone how Washington operates.Chavez replaced him as its number one enemy. He spoke truth to power. He did so more forthrightly and eloquently than anyone.He touched important nerves. He denounced US imperialism.

The shoo-in confirmation of Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John Brennan as director of the CIA was supposed to be low-key nonevent, fading out into oblivion the very first nanosecond it was announced.
But it hasn’t – and hardly ever will be forgotten for a foreseeable future.
The freezing of public attention span has nothing to do – almost – with the character traits of the new Langley chief, but has inexorably linked with the White House Nobel Laureate closet infatuation with the Black Ops, conducted by the best toys for the big boys – RPA, remotely piloted aircraft – with a paternalistic passion of ‘no prisoners left behind’.
The Myth of Fed Independence… “By far the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government is not, as one might expect, the CIA, DIA, or some other super-secret intelligence agency.” – Murray N. Rothbard – Mises Daily
[Excerpted from The Case Against The Fed.]
By far the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government is not, as one might expect, the CIA, DIA, or some other super-secret intelligence agency. The CIA and other intelligence operations are under control of the Congress. They are accountable: a Congressional committee supervises these operations, controls their budgets, and is informed of their covert activities. It is true that the committee hearings and activities are closed to the public; but at least the people’s representatives in Congress insure some accountability for these secret agencies.
It is little known, however, that there is a federal agency that tops the others in secrecy by a country mile. The Federal Reserve System is accountable to no one; it has no budget; it is subject to no audit; and no Congressional committee knows of, or can truly supervise, its operations. The Federal Reserve, virtually in total control of the nation’s vital monetary system, is accountable to nobody—and this strange situation, if acknowledged at all, is invariably trumpeted as a virtue.

Recently by Ron Paul: Beware the Consequences of Pre-Emptive War
Last week, Senators threatened to put a “hold” on the nomination of John Brennan to be CIA director over his refusal to answer questions about the use of drones to kill Americans on US soil. That the president’s nominee to head the agency that has used drones to kill perhaps thousands overseas could not deny their possible use at home should be shocking. How did we get to this point?
The Obama administration has rapidly expanded the use of drones overseas, as they appear a way to expand US military action without the political risk of American boots on the ground. In fact they are one of the main reasons a recent Gallup survey of Pakistan, where most US drone strikes take place, found that 92% disapprove of U.S. leadership. This is the lowest approval rate Pakistan citizens have ever given to the United States. And it is directly related to US drone strikes. The risk of blowback increases all the time. However the false propaganda about the success of our drone program overseas leads officials to believe that drones should also be used over US soil as well.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus and other top intelligence officials were kept out of the loop on secret raids in Libya which may have triggered the attacks on the U.S. Consulate last year, according to a new book out Tuesday.
According to the authors — a former Navy SEAL and former Army Ranger — the man tapped by President Obama to lead the CIA in his second term, White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan, was behind those classified “combat operations” which were allegedly conducted in the run-up to the September 2012 terror attack.
The e-book, called “Benghazi: The Definitive Report,” covered a number of behind-the-scenes claims, including that Petraeus was ensnared by a “palace coup” at the CIA that ultimately helped expose his affair with biographer Paula Broadwell.
Petraeus was humiliated after a ‘palace coup‘ by high-level intelligence officers who did not like the way he was running the CIA, authors say

A contingency plan was formulated by MJ-12 to throw everyone off the trail should they come close to the truth. The plan was known as MAJESTIC TWELVE. It was implemented with the release by Moore, Shandera, and Friedman of the purported genuine “Eisenhower Briefing Document”.
The document is a fraud. The document lists the Executive Order as #092447. A number which does not exist and will not exist for quite a long time at the present rate. Truman wrote Executive Orders in the 9,000 range,
Eisenhower wrote in the 10,000 range, Ford was up to the 11,000 bracket, and Reagan got only into the 12,000 numbers. Executive Orders are numbered consecutively, no matter who occupies the White House for reasons of continuity, record keeping, and to prevent confusion. The Executive Order is only 1 of several fatal flaws contained within the document.
The plan so far has thrown the entire research community off the trail for several years and has resulted in the wasted expenditure of money looking for information which does not exist. It resulted in a total waste of a grant by the Fund for UFO Research of $16,000 which was given to Stanton Friedman to research the information. Many thousands of man hours have gone into looking for a “Red Herring”. If you doubt the secret government’s ability to run you through the rose garden you had better think again.

The One Armed Bandit Goes to His Grave
The Contras, Crack and Senator Inouye
by THOMAS MOUNTAIN
The USA’s longest serving and reputably most powerful Senator, Daniel “The One Armed Bandit” Inouye has died in a hospital outside of Washington D.C. at the age of 88, bringing an end to the career of one of the most loyal, and criminal, careers in service to Pax Americana.
Dan “the One Armed Bandit” Inouye was christened such by his comrades in arms in the US Army’s legendary 442nd outfit made up almost exclusively of Japanese Americans during W.W.II for stealing a wedding ring off a dead woman civilian and subsequently having the arm allegedly bearing the stolen ring blown off by a German artillery shell.
This marked the beginning of a long, sordid career in service to the USA that reached its peak when he almost single handedly covered up the role of the CIA in starting what went on to become the global pandemic known as the Crack Cocaine holocaust (see Gary Webb’s “Dark Alliance” or “White Out” by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair).

John F. Kennedy (many believe the CIA had a hand
in that public execution), but, at the same time, most
citizens may not realize that assassination is a popular
tool of those who work for the various “nameless”

…..Though being described in the US mainstream propaganda media as a mysterious “doomsday prepper” and “gun enthusiast” who, without a job, lived in a $1.6 million mansion, this report continues, Nancy Champion Lanza demonstrates all of the characteristics and lifestyle the CIA creates for those of its top agent-analysts who work in the netherworld between American intelligence agencies, their nations corporations and their countries schools whose students have long been subjected to mass experimentation.
Unbeknownst to the vast majority of the American people is the CIA’s long history of unethical experimentation on children, and other citizens, without their knowledge, a fact known since 1977 when through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request over 16,000 pages of mind control documents were found as part of that intelligence agencies financial history.
Prison Planet.com » Ron Paul: Expanding Covert Warfare Makes Us Less Safe… (“In 2010, I said in a speech that there had been a CIA coup in this country. The CIA runs the military, the drone program, and they are in drug trafficking. The CIA is a secretive government all on its own. “)
….In 2010, I said in a speech that there had been a CIA coup in this country. The CIA runs the military, the drone program, and they are in drug trafficking. The CIA is a secretive government all on its own. With this new expanded Defense Intelligence Agency presence overseas it will be even worse. Because the DIA is operationally under control of the Pentagon, direct Congressional oversight of the program will be more difficult. Perhaps this is as intended. The CIA will be training the DIA in its facilities to conduct operations overseas.
Much of this will include developing targeting data for the president’s expanding drone warfare program.Already the president has demonstrated his preference for ever more drone attacks overseas. In Pakistan, for example, President Obama has in his first four years authorized six times more drone strikes than under all eight years of the Bush Administration. Nearly three thousand individuals have been killed by these drones, many of those non-combatants.President Obama said recently of Israel’s strikes against the Palestinians in Gaza, “No country on Earth would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders.”
This announcement by the administration amounts to precisely that: the US intends to rain down ever more missiles on citizens overseas. I believe what the president says about Israel is true everywhere, so what about those overseas who live in fear of our raining missiles?
How will they feel about the United States? Is it not possible that we may be inviting more blowback by expanding the covert war overseas? Does that make us safer?An exhaustive study earlier this year by Stanford and New YorkUniversity law schools found that US drone strikes on Pakistan are “damaging and counterproductive,” potentially creating more terrorists than they kill. Its recommendations of a radical re-appraisal of the program obviously fell on deaf ears in the administration.

It was to tell the story of JFK, and of all of us, for that matter. It was representing everyone in this country and, because of the nature of the conflict, in some sense, everybody in the world. We’re talking about weapons that could destroy the world. And that story, and of his turning – I use that word advisedly. It comes from the Hebrew Scriptures – his turning away from that kind of destructive power, towards peace, that’s the “why” of his assassination.
ROCKWELL: You know, we hear, for example, about his speech where he said he was going to undo the CIA as an organization. Was that part of it, I mean, in terms of what the CIA did then, what it does today, what the Pentagon does, the Military-Industrial Complex?

This year, a cabal of generals evidently believed it could secure the White House for Mitt Romney by staging the Benghazi incident and using it as the signal for a cold coup under cover of elections — probably including computer-generated election fraud — to bring down Obama. They guessed wrong.

Petraeus scandal puts four-star general lifestyle under scrutiny
View Photo Gallery — The David Petraeus scandal: Cast of characters: A scandal that began with the relationship between retired Gen. David Petraeus, the director of the CIA, and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, has mushroomed. Here’s a look at the people mentioned in the case.
By Rajiv Chandrasekaran and Greg Jaffe, Published: November 17
Then-defense secretary Robert M. Gates stopped bagging his leaves when he moved into a small Washington military enclave in 2007. His next-door neighbor was Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time, who had a chef, a personal valet and — not lost on Gates — troops to tend his property.
Gates may have been the civilian leader of the world’s largest military, but his position did not come with household staff. So, he often joked, he disposed of his leaves by blowing them onto the chairman’s lawn.
Among the new information uncovered by the Post’s Greg Jaffe and Anne Gearan, the Petraeus biographer was asked to leave her doctoral program at Harvard and apparently mistated her accomplishments at West Point.

Supposition: If you were a senior military commander and seriously concerned with the direction of the country; with upcoming presidential elections, how could you ensure the current administration loses?
First, Find like minded senior officers I knew well and respected. Meet with them and devise a plan.
Second, I would find information so damaging to the current President that he could not possibly be re-elected.
Third, I would confront him with the information and demand he throw the election (not resign or we would have President Biden)
The evidence that Gen. David Petraeus, formerly the commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, the author of the current Army field manual, Princeton Ph.D. and, until last week, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was forced to resign from the CIA to silence him is far stronger than is the version of events that the Obama administration has given us.
The government would have us believe that because the FBI confronted Petraeus with his emails showing a pattern of inappropriate personal private behavior, he voluntarily departed his job as the country’s chief spy to avoid embarrassment.
The government would also have us believe that the existence of the general’s relationship with Paula Broadwell, an unknown military scholar who wrote a book about him last year, was recently and inadvertently discovered by the FBI while it was conducting an investigation into an alleged threat made by Broadwell to another woman. And the government would as well have us believe that the president learned of all this at 5 p.m. on Election Day.
Obama administration’s dirty hands
The evidence that Gen. David H. Petraeus, formerly the commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, the author of the current Army field manual, Princeton Ph.D. and, until last week, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was forced to resign from the CIA to silence him is far stronger than is the version of events that the Obama administration has given us.
RUSH: I’m gonna go back to Petraeus. Have you heard, by the way, that Petraeus went to Libya after Benghazi, did his own investigation? He did. He interviewed people himself. You gotta remember this, too. Petraeus also testified, or I think he testified. I think it was testimony.
If he didn’t testify, he said publicly that it was spontaneous combustion that led to what happened in Benghazi. He lent credence to the fact that it was the video, as the CIA director. Then he goes there, and he went to Benghazi, he conducted his own interviews. It’s after that trip to Benghazi that all of this starts hitting the fan.
Petraeus probably knows what happened. He knows full well what happened. And he could explain what really happened. But what happens now if he does? And, by the way, how does Hillary Clinton get away with being out of the country, and Panetta?
What is this, a monarchy? (imitating Clinton) “I’m sorry, I don’t feel like testifying. I’m tired. All I want to do is sleep and taste wine.”
“The real issue is dealing with political uncertainty, the difference from what is publicly said, what is publicly seen and what actually exists.”
Is our Republic being ‘rearranged’?
by Gordon Duff and Press TV
The United States is undergoing a political maelstrom that, in many ways, parallels what is currently going on in China.
Though the election ended days ago, a significant victory for Obama, perceived by most as a repudiation of American support for Netanyahu, the real issues are far more sinister.
Powerful forces within the government are reacting, not just to threats of civil war, assassination and domestic terrorism. There is a vast and well-orchestrated clandestine effort to centralize power behind the presidency, preparation likely to lead to an expansion in executive power. All competing factions, Pentagon, State Department, CIA and courts face disembowelment by the Obama administration.
Does this represent a change in American policy, both domestic and foreign, or is this a consolidation at the behest of the unseen ruling elites many claim controlled both candidates, Obama and Romney, equally?
Today, General David Petraeus resigned as CIA director sighting “poor judgment” in his personal life, an “extramarital affair” as the reason. No one believes him.
(“Did NeoCons Take Down Petraeus?”) ~ A Covert Affair: Petraeus Caught in the Honeypot? by Justin Raimondo
The outing of Gen. David Petraeus as an adulterer, and his subsequent resignation as CIA Director, was carried out by an unknown FBI “whistleblower” who leaked the facts of the FBI investigation into the General’s private life to Rep. Eric Cantor. The New York Times reports:
“Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, said Saturday an F.B.I. employee whom his staff described as a whistle-blower told him about Mr. Petraeus’s affair and a possible security breach in late October, which was after the investigation had begun.
“’I was contacted by an F.B.I. employee concerned that sensitive, classified information may have been compromised and made certain Director Mueller was aware of these serious allegations and the potential risk to our national security,’ Mr. Cantor said in a statement.
The story of David Petraeus’s resignation is evolving, and we may know more soon enough. But for now, he is said to have resigned because he committed marital infidelity in a way that could have exposed the U.S. to harm. Greta van Susteren of Fox News says his jobs as a general and CIA director made him “very vulnerable to blackmail from those with very bad intentions against the United States.”
The Obama regime’s star witness on Benghazi would be better tagged as an alleged mistress than a “military expert”.

According to two well-vetted sources with intimate knowledge of the CIA operations and events in Benghazi, the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus is directly related to the testimony he was expected to provide before a closed-door hearing next week before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
I may have awakened him. The late James Jesus Angleton, once the chief of CIA counterintelligence, sounded kinda groggy to me after I got him–loud and clear!–on my famously untrustworthy ouija board. Of course I have no idea whether he gets to sleep at all. I don’t quite know exactly “where” he is, after all, and he doesn’t answer direct questions on the subject. Anyway, there he was, and I started right in.
ML: So what am I supposed to think about Petraeus?

Today, David Petraeus resigned from the CIA citing marital infidelity as the reason. Paula Broadwell, a West Point graduate and 15 year “intelligence agent” with highest security clearances is cited by most publications and said to be under FBI investigation for attempting to “hack” General Petraeus’ email accounts.

From the New York Times:
To Harry Hughes, regional director of the National Socialist Movement, the largest neo-Nazi group in the United States, Mr. Ready was “a patriot” — “a sincere and compassionate man,” he said in a telephone interview.
Mr. Ready had been a member of the movement, Mr. Hughes said, but resigned two years ago to found the U.S. Border Guard, an armed group that conducted expeditions in the Arizona desert to search for migrants and drug smugglers.
Mr. Hughes said he had joined one of those expeditions. “We’d come across people who have been out in the desert for eight or nine days, we’d give them water and then we’d notify the Border Patrol,” Mr. Hughes said.
Following a pair of denials by the CIA and the National Security Council to a Fox News story published Friday, the Pentagon has come under scrutiny for its response to the assault on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.
However, in a statement to The Atlantic Wire, a senior defense official says the Pentagon never rejected requests for military intervention in Benghazi. Not only that, the official said no such requests were ever made.
Don’t mess with the CIA [Benghazi]… (“You know who doesn’t like getting thrown under the bus? The CIA. You know what the CIA does when you try to throw it under the bus? They get even — quickly, quietly, and with fatal consequences.”)

You know who doesn’t like getting thrown under the bus? The CIA. You know what the CIA does when you try to throw it under the bus?
They get even — quickly, quietly, and with fatal consequences.
That seems the most logical explanation for the torrent of information pouring out this week (unless Hillary Rodham Clinton — also thrown under the bus by President Obama — is scrapping any chance of ever running for president again and is simply setting the whole administration on fire, along with her legacy as secretary of state).
Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus has emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of Sep. 11. The Weekly Standard and ABC News (report) that Petraeus’s denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to assist “would have been a presidential decision.”
Benghazi ambassadorial staff: Obama determined they were expendable… (“”And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” — Revelation 13:4″)

It was reported and revealed this morning on Fox News‘ Happening Now Breaking news that the CIA in Benghazi, Libya had at least twice on 11 September 2012 requested from their superiors in the US help for the consulate’s employees.
The CIA employees told the Obama official — who was likely already viewing the attacks live from the safety of his or her own offices — that Ambassador Stevens, his staff and 2 security people were in jeopardy of being killed by the ongoing Islamists‘ assault.
The first time the Obama official was contacted for assistance, CIA Benghazi was told “No. Stand down!” 1-2 hours later, CIA Benghazi again contacted the Obama official again and begged for help they were again told to “stand down” and advised that no help would be forthcoming.

Mind-baffling outrageous crimes have a certain logic, language, and dark humor that repeats itself again and again.
If you aren’t familiar with Aleister Crowley, you will learn how his writings and philosophy have been embraced and disseminated widely by those who believe that a select few should rule over the masses; Bain spells out how the 9/11 events are an “Ode to Aleister Crowley.”
Bain’s work is a virtual Rosetta Stone, a key to decoding the images and signals that constantly bombard us. Bain modestly acknowledges that he is simply compiling the insights of other writers, thinkers, and researchers who have penetrated the matter in depth.

By assigning covert action roles to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), it is as if the White House and Congress had legitimized the Ku Klux Klanto operate globally. That’s because the CIA today resembles nothing so much as the “Invisible Empire” of the KKK that once spread terror across the South and Midwest. Fiery crosses aside, this is what the CIA is doing globally.
