Exposure of the CIA
from Larry Ross

This is a rare jewel to have a potential assassination victim, Fidel Castro, commenting on the CIA's 'Family Jewels' self-exposure and a few of their numerous attempts to assassinate him.
Although this exposure and Castro's comments do expose a lot of sensational, unbelievable plots and assassinations, and the blackest of black operations, it covers up and omits far more, and probably far worse crimes against humanity.  As Castro points out, the CIA actions today are far more extensive under Bush than any previous US president. It underlines the fact that Western society really is becoming more like Orwell's book '1984' every day. Read it and weep for the future of humanity under the criminal Bush regime and what is likely to follow.

It was announced that the CIA would be declassifying hundreds of pages on illegal actions that included plans to eliminate the leaders of foreign governments. Suddenly the publication is halted and it is delayed one day. No coherent explanation was given. Perhaps someone in the White House looked over the material.
The first package of declassified documents goes by the name of "The Family Jewels"; it consists of 702 pages on illegal CIA actions between 1959 and 1973. About 100 pages of this part have been deleted. It deals with actions that were not authorized by any law, plots to assassinate other leaders, experiments with drugs on human beings to control their minds, spying on civil activists and journalists, among other similar activities that were expressly prohibited.

  CIA Falsification of Intelligence
Comment by Larry Ross

James Risen's book shows that In 2002 the CIA had testimony from many Iraq sources that Iraq's WMD or nuclear programme had been dead for 10 years.
Nevertheless the CIA gave the Bush Administration what it wanted - an "intelligence estimate that Iraq was reconstituting its nuclear program." The Bush Administration planned a war with Iraq and had the CIA provide what they called "intelligence" to provide material they could use as justification.
This case illustrates that the CIA is also a propaganda agency and much of its material is produced to suit the political objectives of the Administration. It is yet another expensive tool of the state used to fool the American people.

A new book on the government's secret anti-terrorism operations describes how the CIA recruited an Iraqi-American anesthesiologist in 2002 to obtain information from her brother, who was a figure in Saddam Hussein's nuclear program.

Assassinations of anyone, anywhere is the world, as long as Bush claims they are linked to al Qaeda, is one of the many asssignments Bush gave to the CIA in 2001. It is incredible what the US gets away with using CIA agents. Then the CIA becomes the whipping boy for blame if Bush lies are exposed, such as the alleged 'intelligence failure' which Bush claims caused him to go to war against Iraq.
More and more the world is becoming a police state, with a huge infrastructure of secret agents enforcing Bush's crazy edicts and judgements.

The effort President Bush authorized shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, to fight al Qaeda has grown into the largest CIA covert action program since the height of the Cold War, expanding in size and ambition despite a growing outcry at home and abroad over its clandestine tactics, according to former and current intelligence officials and congressional and administration sources.



Comment by Larry Ross, October 21, 2004

The following CIA Secret Report shows how Bush and accomplices are trying to suppress information about the 9/11 attacks.

The L.A. Times 19/10/04 referred to " ..the Bush administration's great determination since 9/11 to resist any serious investigation into how the security of this nation was so easily breached." It said "the president fought against the creation of the Sept. 11 commission" and "refused to testify to the commission under oath or on the record" and then when he finally agreed "to chat with the commission members, with Vice President Cheney present...commission members were not allowed to take notes."

The Times said it was "strange behaviour for a man who seeks re-election to the top office in the land based on his handling of the so-called war on terror."

How true that comment is. Sounds to me like the actions of a guilty man.
The Secret Report was leaked to the Times, and it's official release has been stalled for 17 months by acting CIA Director John McLaughlin and now by Bush Republican ally, Porter J. Gross, who was appointed by Bush to head the C.I.A. More and more, we see evidence that the CIA and many other US spy agencies are programmed and controlled to provide so-called 'intelligence' that will serve the President's secret agenda, rather than provide objective and accurate intelligence. The Iraq war illustrated this.

NZ Intelligence

So far as I know, the NZ intelligence agencies treat US intelligence reports as gospel and do not question its accuracy or it's possible objectives such as influencing NZ government policies. They do not appear to be programmed to assess intelligence from the US or other nations in the light of the real political agendas of these nations.

The case of Ahmed Zaoui shows NZ acts on faulty intelligence

The case of Ahmed Zaoui seems to perfectly illustrate the principal of using fraudulent 'secret' intelligence as a political tool to influence other governments. This was brilliantly illustrated by a Oct 13/04 TV1 documentary, “Enemy of the State” on the Zaoui case. Secret agreements prevent suspect intelligence being exposed.

It shows that people can be imprisoned and deported because of secret 'rubbish' intelligence reports issued by conspiratorial military states like Algeria. The Algerian military dictatorship has a well-established record of killing, torturing and imprisoning it's elected democratic opponents like Zaoui. Nevertheless NZ's intelligence agency, and it's supposed political masters, treat secret Algerian reports as unquestionable gospel and are willing to suppress information and persecute the innocent on the basis of this phoney information. The mystery is why the NZ government continues to be a victim of this fraud, and continues the victimisation of Ahmed Zaoui?

Bush's phoney 'war on terror' has resulted in a flood of lies and phoney reports and 'intelligence' of all kinds to convince other governments and people that the US is doing the right thing in its phoney wars. So it is essential that if the government does not want to be duped, it should set up assessment procedures to evaluate incoming intelligence reports. Otherwise it will continue to be duped as the Zaoui case illustrates.

The US has been successful in duping the UK and Australian governments with phoney reports, claims and secret intelligence on Iraq and the terrorist threat. Both governments have had their defence policies profoundly altered. They have gone to war, spent millions, endangered their countries and looked foolish because they believed, or pretended to believed, and even embellished, faulty and politically-motivated US intelligence. They are politically locked-in to the US propaganda machine and their major opposition parties are afraid to tell the truth. A good example was the recent Australian election. Labour was afraid it might offend the US by exposing Bush and Howard lies about Iraq. Consequently the Iraq war was hardly mentioned during the Australian elections. The result was that Labour lost and Howard won another term. It was a triumph for the big lie.

NZ has shown some political independence by sending only non-combat troops to Iraq to help rebuild the country.

The 9/11 Secret in the CIA's Back Pocket
The Agency is withholding a damning report that points at senior officials

by Robert Scheer, pub. L.A. Times, October 19, 2004

It is shocking: The Bush administration is suppressing a CIA report on 9/11 until after the election, and this one names names. Although the report by the inspector general's office of the CIA was completed in June, it has not been made available to the congressional intelligence committees that mandated the study almost two years ago.

"It is infuriating that a report which shows that high-level people were not doing their jobs in a satisfactory manner before 9/11 is being suppressed," an intelligence official who has read the report told me, adding that "the report is potentially very embarrassing for the administration, because it makes it look like they weren't interested in terrorism before 9/11, or in holding people in the government responsible afterward."

When I asked about the report, Rep. Jane Harman (D-Venice), ranking Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee, said she and committee Chairman Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.) sent a letter 14 days ago asking for it to be delivered. "We believe that the CIA has been told not to distribute the report," she said. "We are very concerned."

According to the intelligence official, who spoke to me on condition of anonymity, release of the report, which represents an exhaustive 17-month investigation by an 11-member team within the agency, has been "stalled." First by acting CIA Director John McLaughlin and now by Porter J. Goss, the former Republican House member (and chairman of the Intelligence Committee) who recently was appointed CIA chief by President Bush.

The official stressed that the report was more blunt and more specific than the earlier bipartisan reports produced by the Bush-appointed Sept. 11 commission and Congress.

"What all the other reports on 9/11 did not do is point the finger at individuals, and give the how and what of their responsibility. This report does that," said the intelligence official. "The report found very senior-level officials responsible."

By law, the only legitimate reason the CIA director has for holding back such a report is national security. Yet neither Goss nor McLaughlin has invoked national security as an explanation for not delivering the report to Congress.

"It surely does not involve issues of national security," said the intelligence official.

"The agency directorate is basically sitting on the report until after the election," the official continued. "No previous director of CIA has ever tried to stop the inspector general from releasing a report to the Congress, in this case a report requested by Congress."

None of this should surprise us given the Bush administration's great determination since 9/11 to resist any serious investigation into how the security of this nation was so easily breached. In Bush's much ballyhooed war on terror, ignorance has been bliss.

The president fought against the creation of the Sept. 11 commission, for example, agreeing only after enormous political pressure was applied by a grass-roots movement led by the families of those slain.

And then Bush refused to testify to the commission under oath, or on the record. Instead he deigned only to chat with the commission members, with Vice President Dick Cheney present, in a White House meeting in which commission members were not allowed to take notes. All in all, strange behavior for a man who seeks reelection to the top office in the land based on his handling of the so-called war on terror.

In September, the New York Times reported that several family members met with Goss privately to demand the release of the CIA inspector general's report. "Three thousand people were killed on 9/11, and no one has been held accountable," 9/11 widow Kristen Breitweiser told the paper.

The failure to furnish the report to Congress, said Harman, "fuels the perception that no one is being held accountable. It is unacceptable that we don't have [the report]; it not only disrespects Congress but it disrespects the American people."

The stonewalling by the Bush administration and the failure of Congress to gain release of the report have, said the intelligence source, "led the management of the CIA to believe it can engage in a cover-up with impunity. Unless the public demands an accounting, the administration and CIA's leadership will have won and the nation will have lost."
