This is not referring to the Iraqi liar who was the basis for the psychopathic, long-planned invasion of Iraq, the anonymous twerp who assured the CIA that Saddam had WMD. Even those initials have become obscenities, let alone the words for which they stand. I’m referring to a so-called American. So-called Americans can be very dangerous people. Bush and Cheney, for example, are so-called Americans. Obama, we’re not so sure what he is, beyond a mystery-man-of-the-world. Obama appears to be a creation of the CIA and Zbigniew Brzezinski.
We actually don’t have proof that the anonymous Iraqi lying twerp actually existed. We just have the word of the CIA. We have learned the hard way how much the CIA’s word is worth. The Lie Factory was undone by its own liar.
I haven’t been hooked up to television for several years and missed a 2008 CNN report they called “Dead Wrong,” but watched it online the other night. It chronicled the bald-faced lies jammed in our ears by the CIA. Now, the words, “dead wrong,” suggest something a little softer and less malevolent than “stinking lies that got millions of people killed.” Ooh, you guys were dead wrong when you assured us that Saddam’s three-inch-diameter aluminum tubes weren’t for rocket launchers but were for nuclear centrifuges, that this little glass vial here contains enough anthrax to wipe out DC, and these trailers carrying what look like gas bag inflators are actually mobile weapons of mass death, attested to by a certified Vietnam war criminal named Colin Powell, bosom pal of Richard Armitage, the king of CIA heroin.
And CNN provided a number of CIA liars with sad faces who regretfully told us how things went bad, how their beloved Lie Factory was used so callously to, er, lie to us. That the noble, lachrymose director, George Tenet, with so many great but classified CIA successes to his credit, may have overdone it a little by assuring George Bush that Iraqi WMD was a slam-dunk. This noble guy who put the American label on massive secret kidnapping and off-shore torture centers. Sanctimonious CIA liars such as Michael Scheuer and David Kay, among others, admitted their dreary contributions to crimes against humanity. Scheuer had for some years been paid by us fools for heading up the “Bin Laden desk.” For some reason, Scheuer didn’t choose to tell us that Osama was a long-time CIA asset who had immediately denied any involvement in 911, which was pretty obvious anyway, or who had in fact died about three months after 911. David Kay looked and looked for Saddam’s WMD for six months and resigned, but not until four days after Bush’s January ’05 state of the nation address. Kay admitted that he had agreed to postpone his resignation so as not to make Bush look like, well – a stinking congenital liar. CNN didn’t have the guts to remind us how Joe Wilson destroyed the Lie Factory’s lies about Saddam’s Niger “yellow cake” or how Wilson’s CIA wife was hysterically betrayed by her own bosses in retaliation. The astonishing treachery by Armitage and Liebowitz – excuse me, Libby – must have disconcerted the Langley Liars Club, to put it mildly. Revealing the identity of Valerie Plame, who was herself occupied with finding weapons of mass destruction? This sort of thing has such homosexual overtones, as does the CIA itself.
No, the Curve Ball that inspired this piece is a so-called American, naturally a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He works now for CNN as a national security adviser, which means he feeds viewers new CIA lies to paper over the previous CIA lies. And he openly refuses, in his role as an adviser to a “news company” to tell us the truth about what George Tenet told George Bush about Iraqi WMD that resulted in millions of Iraqis and thousands of Americans being slaughtered, plus hundreds of thousands severely wounded. CNN hires this professional liar with thirty years experience lying to Americans and foreign governments as an advisor? And we’re supposed to trust CNN? Oh, his name is John McLaughlin. On the CNN show he says, “I never repeat anything said in the Oval Office.” Then what the hell good are you? That’s where the important lies were told, in the Oval Office! Lies that killed millions of people. Lies told to us by George Bush based on lies wheedled out of George Tenet. It didn’t take much wheedling, it turns out.
