A talk by James Bamford, the author of "The Puzzle Palace" and "Body of Secrets" & Chris Calabrese Program Counsel of the ACLU Technology and Liberty Project. This man has fought the government and won his case against the NSA. That takes guts.Â
Â Â Â Â The National Security Agency can be traced to the May 20, 1949, creation of theÂ Armed Forces Security AgencyÂ (AFSA). This organization was originally established within theÂ U.S. Department of DefenseÂ under the command of theÂ Joint Chiefs of Staff. The AFSA was to direct the communications and electronic intelligence activities of the U.S.Â military intelligenceÂ units: theÂ Army Security Agency, theÂ Naval Security Group, and theÂ Air Force Security Service. But the agency had little power and lacked a centralized coordination mechanism. The creation of NSA resulted from a December 10, 1951, memo sent byÂ CIAÂ DirectorÂ Walter Bedell SmithÂ to James S. Lay, Executive Secretary of theNational Security Council.Â The memo observed that "control over, and coordination of, the collection and processing of Communications Intelligence had proved ineffective" and recommended a survey of communications intelligence activities. The proposal was approved on December 13, 1951, and the study authorized on December 28, 1951. The report was completed by June 13, 1952. Generally known as the "Brownell Committee Report," after committee chairmanÂ Herbert Brownell, it surveyed the history of U.S. communications intelligence activities and suggested the need for a much greater degree of coordination and direction at the national level. As the change in the security agency's name indicated, the role of NSA was extended beyond the armed forces.
The creation of NSA was authorized in a letter written by PresidentÂ Harry S. TrumanÂ in June 1952. The agency was formally established through a revision of National Security Council Intelligence Directive (NSCID) 9 on October 24, 1952,Â and officially came into existence on November 4, 1952. President Truman's letter was itselfÂ classifiedÂ and remained unknown to the public for more than a generation.
Serious news report on the allegations against the CIA and the fabrication of the organization of Al-Queda and Osama Bin Laden. Hopefully the truth will keep coming out to the fore front and this information will be called from every mountaintop in all of the lands. Let the truth come out. Let theÂ Â deceptionÂ be know to everyone that this war and 911 was a strategic move Â by our own intelligence services and Zionist infiltration to create a global military presence. If you think the American Empire is under a different steward you are sorely mistaken. Same game, special teams.
It almost seems Â as if the paradox of running a secret spy agency in a Democracy if further convoluted by the selfish manipulations by the political elite who ran t. Rumsfeld and Bush running operations against each other while in the CIA is the most crazy crap . You can't wriite this material.
Journalist Tim Weiner discusses future President George H.W. Bush's appointment to Director of Central Intelligence under Gerald Ford.
In his balanced, and thus all the more disturbing, history of the CIA, Tim Weiner tells how an agency intended to inform the President about the world became so mired in cloak and dagger politics that the US now lacks the intelligence it needs to operate effectively on the world stage.
Why is it that the agency intended to provide us with intelligence about the world became a tool to shape our perception of that world for political purposes?
Why, for decades, did the agency acquire a shining reputation despite misreading nearly every global crisis?
How did the CIA misread Castro's Cuba, chances of victory in Vietnam, and the Soviet Union's staying power?
Mr. Weiner argues that these C.I.A. missteps have encouraged many of our gravest contemporary problems: Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and terrorism - World Affairs Council of Oregon
Tim Weiner is a reporter for The New York Times. He has written on American intelligence for twenty years, and won the Pulitzer Prize for his work on secret national security programs. He has traveled to Afghanistan and other nations to investigate CIA covert operations firsthand.
Jesse Ventura Speaks about his personal experiences and knowledge of such facts!Â
Former Governor Jesse Ventura exposes he was interrogated by more than 20 CIA agents during his term of office in Minnesota. Despite the CIA's mission statement which states they are not to be operational within the Unites States, Ventura stated that he had embedded CIA agents working in high level positions of the Minnesota state government. Ventura also said that when these agents retired, their replacements were already chosen for him by the CIA.
Part II of a talk by Dr. Michael Parenti on "Lies, War, and Empire" given May 12, 2007 at Antioch University in Seattle. Listen intently to Parenti. He omits the threatened switch to the Euro for oil futures on Iran's own stock exchange. That exchange sits vacant today and Iran remains un-invaded.
Dick Morris Unplugged - Bye Bye Pelosi. Commentary on Nancy Pelosi's slow destruction and inevitable demise.
Dick morris is a Republican stooge but holds his own at times. We have to admit his analysis of this Pelosi situation is right on the money. Â Pelosi has got some real problems here and in our Â opinion it is time for her to re-evaluate. Under her, Harry Reid, and the rest of the gang, we had all of the Bush years. They gave their tacit approval for every initiative the Bush admin. went after and got on a golden platter. The democratic party has no balls. there was no opposition. Hillary was the greatest asset they had and Â she's Â been co-opted.

This video highlights the connection between the environmental movement and those who are striving to bring about a new system of control to the world.
