Phi Beta Iota: Most people–including naive Presidents and their key staff and most CIA employees–simply do not grasp the degree to which the CIA covert operations culture (and now the military culture) nurture psychopathic personalities who are absolutely certain they are above the law and their “mission” demands lying to Congress and the Executive as well as the US public and foreigners. It also includes, as we now know, rendition and torture. Col Ed Landsdale was the primary actor in originating the concept of “fake terror” in the Philippines as leader of a covert action, and the NATO/CIA fake terror operations in Italy are now well-documented. It is impossible to over-estimate the depth of the depraved “culture of deception” within certain [small but overly influential] circles of the CIA, the same ones that engaged in waterboarding and that have absolutely no grip on reality–they live in a fake world isolated from accountability. We continue to believe that the Bin Laden Show has been staged, and continue to recommend a complete investigation by a MULTINATIONAL international legal tribunal able to hold the US accountable for extra-judicial assassination without any proof or legal basis. Israel is also a major player–perhaps the major player, in faking terrorist incidents to keep the US “War on Terror” as a flanking and funding movement. The “Underpants Bomber” and the exploding print cartridges shipped via UPS were in all probability both Israeli covert operations aimed directly at the US audience.
