Senior McCain Advisor Helped Arrange Rev. Moon Coronation

FTR #895 The CIA and the “Privacy” Advocates: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Con­tin­u­ing analy­sis and dis­cus­sion from FTR #891, we fur­ther explore the CIA-gen­er­at­ed back­ground and fund­ing of the “pri­va­cy” advo­cates who com­prise much of “Team Snow­den.” Recall that Snow­den him­self was with CIA when he chose to dou­ble on NSA. We begin by review­ing our scruti­ny of Edward Snow­den from the per­spec­tive of Colonel L. Fletch­er Prouty, the Air Force “Focal Point Offi­cer” who devel­oped a CIA-con­trolled net­work inside of the branch­es of the mil­i­tary and oth­er agen­cies of the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment. This “focal point” net­work con­sti­tut­ed a “secret gov­ern­ment with­in a gov­ern­ment” that appears to exist to this day. Next, we set forth the evo­lu­tion of the Broad­cast­ing Board of Gov­er­nors and Radio Free Asia, the par­ent orga­ni­za­tions of the Open Tech­nol­o­gy Fund. The OTF has cap­i­tal­ized much of the encrypt­ed “anti-sur­veil­lance” tech­nol­o­gy that has been devel­oped. “Team Snow­den,” in turn, has evolved from this milieu. In our past dis­cus­sions of the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy, we have not­ed that the very same covert action net­works used to over­throw and elim­i­nate gov­ern­ments and indi­vid­u­als deemed hos­tile to U.S. inter­ests were ulti­mate­ly deployed against Amer­i­cans and even the Unit­ed States itself. “Regime change” and desta­bi­liza­tion came home. In a sim­i­lar fash­ion, it is our con­sid­ered opin­ion that a CIA-derived tech­nol­o­gy milieu devel­oped to assist and effect “ops” abroad was used to desta­bi­lize the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion through the Snow­den “op.” ” . . . Read­ers might find it odd that a US gov­ern­ment agency estab­lished as a way to laun­der the image of var­i­ous shady pro­pa­ganda out­fits (more on that soon) is now keen to fund tech­nolo­gies designed to pro­tect us from the US gov­ern­ment. More­over, it might seem curi­ous that its mon­ey would be so warm­ly wel­comed by some of the Internet’s fiercest antigov­ern­ment activists. . . . . You’d think that anti-sur­veil­lance activists like Chris Soghoian, Jacob Appel­baum, Cory Doc­torow and Jil­lian York would be staunch­ly against out­fits like BBG and Radio Free Asia, and the role they have played — and con­tinue to play — in work­ing with defense and cor­po­rate inter­ests to project and impose U.S. pow­er abroad. Instead, these rad­i­cal activists have know­ingly joined the club, and in doing so, have become will­ing pitch­men for a wing of the very same U.S. Nation­al Secu­rity State they so adamant­ly oppose. . . .” Pro­gram High­lights Include: The con­tro­ver­sy over What­sAp­p’s encryp­tion tech­nol­o­gy; the devel­op­ment of What­sAp­p’s encryp­tion tech­nol­o­gy by the CIA-derived Open Tech­nol­o­gy Fund; FBI Direc­tor James Comey’s sup­port for Mitt Rom­ney in 2012; the appar­ent role of Comey in desta­bi­liz­ing the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and the Hillary Clin­ton cam­paign.

FTR #891 How Might Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty Have Viewed Edward Snowden? (The Foxes Aren’t Guarding the Henhouse, They ARE the Henhouse, Part 2: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook)

One of the most inci­sive crit­ics of the CIA was the late [U.S. Air Force] Colonel L. Fletch­er Prouty. Cho­sen by Allen Dulles to set up “focal point” func­tions for CIA with­in oth­er agen­cies of the U.S. gov­ern­ment, Prouty was instru­men­tal in the cre­ation of what he called a “Secret Team”–the title of his 1969 book about “The Agency.” Dulles’ secret net­work infil­trat­ed the mil­i­tary, the State Depart­ment, the FAA and even the White House. Look­ing at CIA offi­cer Edward Snow­den’s activ­i­ties, Prouty would NOT have tak­en them at face val­ue and would have seen them against the back­ground of the sub-rosa activ­i­ties with which he was famil­iar and had helped cre­ate, weigh­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Snow­den was oper­at­ing against NSA on behalf of CIA. Much of the pro­gram details the sab­o­tage of Fran­cis Gary Pow­ers’ U‑2 spy plane in 1960 on the eve of a sum­mit con­fer­ence between then U.S. Pres­i­dent Dwight Eisen­how­er and Sovi­et Pre­mier Niki­ta Khr­uschev. Dis­patched against the spe­cif­ic orders of Dwight Eisen­how­er, the U‑2 appears to have been delib­er­ate­ly sab­o­taged. The inci­dent led to the can­cel­la­tion of the sum­mit con­fer­ence and the neu­tral­iza­tion of detente between the Sovi­et Union and the Unit­ed States. Prouty would have not­ed that Edward Snow­den was work­ing for the CIA when he under­took his leak­ing oper­a­tion. Prouty would also have not­ed Snow­den’s extreme right-wing views and would not have tak­en his activ­i­ties at face val­ue. Snow­den’s jour­ney to Hong Kong frus­trat­ed Pres­i­dent Oba­ma’s attempts at resolv­ing U.S. and Chi­nese elec­tron­ic spy­ing and hack­ing. Snow­den’s Chi­na sojourn also antic­i­pat­ed U.S. mil­i­tary and eco­nom­ic pres­sure on Chi­na. Snow­den’s jour­ney from Chi­na to Rus­sia led to the can­cel­la­tion of a sum­mit con­fer­ence between Oba­ma and Putin and end­ed the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion’s “reboot with Rus­sia.” The Snow­den “op” pre­ced­ed the Maid­an covert oper­a­tion and atten­dant Ukrain­ian civ­il war, as well as West­ern eco­nom­ic pres­sure on Rus­sia. As a trained intel­li­gence offi­cer, Prouty would have not­ed that the 1.7 mil­lion doc­u­ments (2.7 mil­lion by some accounts) pur­loined by Snow­den fun­da­men­tal­ly com­pro­mised NSA, per­haps to pre­vent whis­tle-blow­ing on CIA use of Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-relat­ed Islamists as proxy war­riors and her­alds of cor­po­ratist eco­nom­ics in what Mr. Emory calls “The Earth Island Boo­gie.” The pro­gram con­cludes with dis­cus­sion of the intel­li­gence con­nec­tions of the very pri­va­cy activists who are sup­pos­ed­ly opposed to U.S. gov­ern­ment elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance. Are Snow­den and those so-called “pri­va­cy activists” actu­al­ly “focal point” per­son­nel in the net­works set up for Allen Dulles by Prouty? Pro­gram High­lights Include: Tor net­work devel­op­er and “pri­va­cy activist” Jacob Apple­baum’s links with U.S. intel­li­gence asset Gene Sharp; Gene Sharp’s sem­i­nal role in the so-called “col­or rev­o­lu­tions,” some of which are fea­tured in “The Earth Island Boo­gie;” the links of Apple­baum and oth­er “pri­va­cy activists” with the Broad­cast­ing Board of Gov­er­nors, a long-time CIA and State Depart­ment cut-out; review of Apple­baum’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in “L’Af­faire Snow­den;” so-called “pri­va­cy activists’ ” advo­ca­cy of apps and net­works devel­oped by the BBG.

Why US Shields Japan’s WWII Denials

Sun Myung Moon’s influ­ence-buy­ing schemes inside U.S. con­ser­v­a­tive polit­i­cal cir­cles – and the fed­er­al gov­ern­men­t’s odd refusal to aggres­sive­ly enforce laws when Moon’s oper­a­tion is caught in legal­ly ques­tion­able activ­i­ties.
