Enjoy watching news/thrillers? Storylines written by CIA.

The Agency’s decision to work publicly with Hollywood was preceded by the 1991 “Task Force Report on Greater CIA Openness,” compiled by CIA Director Robert Gates’ newly appointed ‘Openness Task Force,’ which secretly debated –ironically– whether the Agency should be less secretive.

The report acknowledges that the CIA “now has relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation,” and the authors of the report note that this helped them “turn some ‘intelligence failure’ stories into ‘intelligence success’ stories, and has contributed to the accuracy of countless others.”

It goes on to reveal that the CIA has in the past “persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests” […]

Espionage novelist Tom Clancy has enjoyed an especially close relationship with the CIA.

In 1984, Clancy was invited to Langley after writing The Hunt for Red October, which was later turned into the 1990 film. The Agency invited him again when he was working onPatriot Games(1992), and the movie adaptation was, in turn, granted access to Langley facilities. More recently,The Sum of All Fears(2002) depicted the CIA as tracking down terrorists who detonate a nuclear weapon on US soil. For this production, CIA director George Tenet gave the filmmakers a personal tour of the Langley HQ; the film’s star, Ben Affleck also consulted with Agency analysts, and Chase Brandon served as on-set advisor.

The real reasons for the CIA adopting an “advisory” role on all of these productions are thrown into sharp relief by a solitary comment from former Associate General Counsel to the CIA, Paul Kelbaugh. In 2007, whilst at a College in Virginia, Kelbaugh delivered a lecture on the CIA’s relationship with Hollywood, at which a local journalist was present. The journalist (who now wishes to remain anonymous) wrote a review of the lecture which related Kelbaugh’s discussion of the 2003 thriller The Recruit, starring Al Pacino. The review noted that, according to Kelbaugh, a CIA agent was on set for the duration of the shoot under the guise of a consultant, but that his real job was to misdirect the filmmakers, the journalist quoted Kelbaugh as saying […] Kelbaugh emphatically denied having made the public statement.

    Hi, Tap I thought you might be interested in this, a repeat of stuff I told you last year, that appears to have disappeared.

    .Dr. Steve Piieczenik

    So who in the world is Dr. Steve Pieczenik (pronouned Pa-chi-nik)?

    As I have stated, I have told you about this Chap in previous Posts, one in particular was related to the Supposed Assassination of Bin Laden, when Clinton H. was trying to make it look convincing, whilst watching a Video, but didn’t, actually pull it off.

    Many have no idea of the background of this Chap, I have even seen it stated on one site that he was an Insurance Salesman, Turned Author.

    Pieczenik is a 27 times New York Times Best selling author.

    He received his Medical Degree from Cornell. He has a Psychiatry degree from Harvard. And a PhD in political science from MIT.

    Pieczenik served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and/or Senior Policy Planner, under Secretaries Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, George Schultz and James Baker. Which also means he has served under 5 different US Presidents dating back to Nixon.

    Dr. Pieczenik was the principal International Crisis Manager and Hostage Negotiator under Secretaries Kissinger and Vance. During this time he developed conflict resolution techniques that were instrumental in saving over five hundred hostages in different terrorist episodes

    In 1991 Dr. Pieczenik was a chief architect of the Cambodian Peace Conference in Paris.

    He is currently an advisor to the Department of Defense.
    Dr. Pieczenik also was instrumental in the formation of The Delta Force.
    Dr. Pieczenik has boldly proclaimed that not only has Osama Bin Laden been dead for several years of kidney failure and/or Marfan’s Syndrome…but that he is ready and willing to testify before a grand jury that a high level United States General informed him 9/11 was a stand down/false flag operation and that Bush Jr, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rice should all be tried for war crimes.

    I have never believed any of the claims of the 9/11 conspiracies and I still do not. And let me be clear I am not asking you to either. However, it is fact that our intelligence community have used false flag events in the past to stoke the American patriotic fires and launch us into war before. And when a man with credentials such as Dr. Pieczenik says he is ready to testify before a grand jury that a top US General told him 9/11 was a false flag, and that he is concerned the potential for another one is high, ……….
