• a pair of CIA internal memos from 1984 and 1991, recently exposed by Edward Snowden, show how the agency planned and implemented a heightened infiltration of academia, the press, and the entertainment media
• in 1984, CIA heads viewed the press as villains who had been corrupted by their “absolute power”, and regarded them as a hostile intelligence service
• in response, the CIA pursued centralized control of the press, to deceive and push their own agenda
• by 1991, the CIA had developed relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation, often persuading them to postpone, change, hold or even scrap news stories
• the CIA uses the vast entertainment industry as a distraction
• the U.S. government annually classifies an estimated half a billion documents
• this is an example of how the intelligence community and the Deep State manipulate virtually every segment of society in order to hide government projects such as the Secret Space Program from the people
In this case, it’s the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the document in question, written up in 1984, shows how the agency had definite plans to infiltrate academia and change/influence the curriculum, specifically journalism.
As Emma Best from Muckrock reports, recently Tweeted by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, memos from the CIA Inspector General’s (IG) office reveal the agencies perspective on the press and how to handle them. It’s from 1984, approximately three decades prior to when the Agency declared Wikileaks a hostile non-state intelligence service. It shows how the CIA viewed the media the same way.
Are organizations like Wikileaks really a threat to National Security? Or are they simply a threat to a small group of powerful people who make millions, billions, or even trillions of dollars via government secrecy? Are they a threat to the global national security agenda that is taking place, disguised under the guise of globalisation? Was president Vladimir Putin right when he said “imaginary” and “mythical” threats are being used to impose the Deep State’s way on the entire world? Perhaps truth and transparency are a threat yes, but not to national security. If we continue to ignore these questions, the national security state will continue to be heightened, one in which our rights are constantly violated, with our right to privacy being one of many great examples.
