CIA’S “CLOUT” IN THE WHITE HOUSE
SUGGESTS AGENCY MAY BE RUNNING U.S.
By Mike Palecek
Who really runs America? One way to answer that question is to see if there is any person, group or organization that is above the law. One entity’s name that comes up immediately is the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA), which breaks laws all over the world.
In recent years, it appears that the influence of this Agency has grown to epic proportions inside the White House.
Shortly after his election, President Obama, speaking at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., said it was time to “look forward,” i.e.— not to hold the CIA responsible for its past renditions during the Clinton and Bush years, and the tortures it inflicted on hapless suspects.
The Agency regards itself above the law of nations, which forbids abductions and torture, as does the U.S. Constitution. Obama’s words are not surprising as he is a former CIA employee.
The U.S. has to go all the way back to President Jimmy Carter “to find a President who was not a CIA agent and placed in the Oval Office by the CIA,” Dr. Kevin Barrett writes in just published “Dynamic Duo”, published by CWG Press. Barrett is a former university lecturer, a member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, and founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance.
President Obama, he says, is only the most recent in a line of presidents who worked for, or were closely tied to, the controversial CIA.
Writing in a new book, “Dangerous Duo,”(CWG Press) Barrett says that he is certain that President Obama, if he wasn’t CIA all of his life, has “been groomed by the CIA for a long time.” Barrett says it appears that both Obama’s mother and stepfather were CIA employees and Obama certainly was CIA by the time he attended Columbia University in the fall of 1981.
There, “he was living quite mysteriously, not being seen by anybody, even his roommate,” and his first job out of college “was as a CIA agent,” Barrett writes. According to Wikipedia, upon graduating from Columbia University, Obama for a year (1983) “held a position as a research associate” in Business International Corp.(BIC), a CIA front.
BIC is alleged to have kindly paid off Obama’s college loans and employed him in its financial services division, where he edited “Financing Foreign Operations,” a global reference service, and wrote for “Business International Money Report.”
According to an article in the “Rock Creek Free Press,” of Washington, D.C., reporter Wayne Madsen wrote, “Through its contacts with leading liberals around the world, BIC sought to recruit those on the left as CIA agents and assets.” At any rate, the New York Times reported in 1977 that a BIC company official admitted providing “cover” for CIA employees.
“He’s America’s fourth consecutive CIA President, because both of the Presidents Bush have been CIA, and of course they’re not only CIA they’re also ultra-corrupt drug smuggling mafiosi CIA, and then Bill Clinton is also drug smuggling mafiosi CIA,” Barrett writes.
Barrett charges that Clinton “ran the import end of the CIA’s Central American coke-smuggling business that went through Mena, Arkansas (and) was a CIA cocaine smuggler.”
“So, basically, every President since Reagan has been a CIA agent, and of course Reagan’s White House was heavily controlled by Bush the vice president, who was a CIA agent (and former CIA Director). So we have to go all the way back to Jimmy Carter to find a President who was not a CIA agent and placed in the Oval Office by the CIA,” Barrett writes.
So who’s really running America?
