U.S. Intelligence Agencies Have All Been Busted Lying Again and Again

CIA, NSA, FBI and other Intelligence Agencies Lie

CIA chief John Brennan was busted this week for lying to Congress and the American public by claiming  that the CIA wasn’t spying on the Congressional investigation into torture … when they were.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted that he lied to Congress and the American people about spying, and many congress members, a co-chair of the 9/11 Commission, and a constitutional expert all say that he should be prosecuted for perjury.

The NSA has been caught in lie after lie about surveillance on the American people.

An order from the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California has revealed the FBI lied to the court about the existence of records requested.

And then there’s Iraq.    Ray McGovern – a 27-year CIA veteran, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates and personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their vice presidents, secretaries of state, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials – notes:

Sadly, the credibility of U.S. officials and American intelligence is now at rock bottom. One need only think back on the evidence adduced to “prove” the existence of WMD in Iraq. “The intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy” is what the head of British intelligence told Prime Minister Tony Blair on July 23, 2002, after conferring with CIA Director George Tenet at CIA headquarters on July 20.

Of course, this is nothing new … An NSA whistleblower told  Washington’s Blog:

[NSA officials] were asked 40 years ago whether NSA had bugged Congress. And, of course, they lied. They lied through their teeth.”

And the NSA itself now admits that it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin … creating a false justification for the Vietnam war.

The Christian Science Monitor quoted 9/11 Commission Chair and former long-time Congressional intelligence committee chair Lee Hamilton as saying that all administrations use false intelligence to bolster their policy decisions:

Selective use of intelligence information is not particular to any one presidential team ….

“This is not a problem unique to George Bush. It’s every president I’ve known, and I’ve worked with seven or eight of them,” Hamilton says. “All, at some time or another, used intelligence to support their political objectives.

***

“I’m always skeptical about intelligence,” adds Hamilton, who has been awarded medallions from both the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency. “It’s not as pure as the driven snow.”

Not Just Passive Lying, But Also Active Manipulation

Spy agencies have also been busted manipulating the Internet – including social media – in order to promote false propaganda and to stifle dissenting information. And see this.

And they have played a central role in carrying out false flag terror as well:

  • The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister
  • A U.S. Congressional committee found that – as part of its “Cointelpro” campaign – the FBI had used many provocateurs in the 1950s through 1970s to carry out violent acts and falsely blame them on political activists

Postscript:  A senior NSA executive tells Washington’s Blog that the NSA can use information gathered from mass surveillance to FRAME anyone it doesn’t like.

    So what’s wrong with ‘mericuns lying? It is as natural as for pigs to wallow. As happy as a pig in you-know-what.

    It seems the acronym agencies and the inter generational political aristocracy that comprise the “Deep State” come out into the open more with each passing election event. The Senate – CIA incident being nothing more than an inter office spat.

    It is the last sentence that is chilling. That anyone of the agencies of the “Deep State” can frame anyone to the extent warranted for their neutralization or destruction with lies, or just outright assassination. This alone tells us where we are at.

    Did you know that Bush/Cheney instituted the illegal NSA spying program almost immediately after they seized power in Feb. 2001, then lied to the public when it was exposed in 2006 by saying it was only introduced after – and because of – the 9/11 attacks?

    “Joseph P. Nacchio’s account, which places the NSA proposal at a meeting on Feb. 27, 2001, suggests that the Bush administration was seeking to enlist telecommunications firms in programs without court oversight before the terrorist attacks on New York and the Pentagon.

    The Sept. 11 attacks have been cited by the government as the main impetus for its warrantless surveillance efforts.”

    Google the Washington Post article “Former CEO Says U.S. Punished Phone Firm”.

    The US has been engaged in massive economic espionage, criminal blackmail and brinksmanship, criminal insider trading and industrial-scale counterfeiting for a very long time. Working for Wall Street is the prime job of the CIA and NSA. Protecting “national security” is not what Americans think it means in the sense which has been routinely espoused by their government. Protecting it offensively, not just defensively. They use the cover of “terrorism” and instilling fear in the public so they can continue to pull off these illegal crimes for Wall Street. The US government is guilty of state terrorism against its own citizens and other nations. There is an entirely covert system of illegal financing on a truly breathtaking scale being carried out by these gangster agencies, running in the hundreds of billions if not trillions of dollars – and the NSA is the leading vanguard of this criminal enterprise.

    Whenever people talk about the NDAA they just know about the indefinite detention clause. But there is another section that reverses and legalizes a longstanding federal law made it illegal for the US Department of State to share domestically the internally authored news stories sent to American-operated outlets broadcasting around the globe.

    In other words they could use propaganda everywhere but here on US soil against Americans. It’s section 501 of the NDAA. It overturns the Smith-Mundt Act

    Abolishes the stipulation that the U.S. Had to leave it’s propaganda just overseas. It now
    allows the government to use propaganda on it’s own citizens.
