CIA Chronicles: The CIA Veering from the Truth! How Shocking!

Newt Gingrich and John Boehner, there are many of us who see through your recent political snake dance.

Here you are expressing shock that Nancy Pelosi could actually suggest that the CIA would veer from the truth!  You have both said that such a disgraceful act should bar her from serving as Speaker of the House.

Ah, and how touching it was, Republican Minority Leader Boehner, for you in your outrage to say that the CIA had no reason to lie.

All you needed, Newt and John, to make your Washington carnival complete was a conga line led by you to the accompaniment of Shirley Temple singing "The Good Ship Lollipop."

All is well!  Our Washington leaders are there to protect the good name of the CIA!

How did the organization start, gentlemen?  It was derived from the World War Two intelligence group Office of Strategic Services.  Ah, and what a beacon of liberty it immediately became.

Mark Zepezauer put together a succinct account of the agency's misdeeds called "The CIA's Greatest Hits" and no, he was not talking about bestselling records from Elvis Presley. 

William Blum, Peter Dale Scott, Jonathan Marshall and many others have also written about an organization known for repeated intrusions into the affairs of other nations on behalf of global corporatism.

John Foster Dulles would ultimately become President Dwight D. Eisenhower's "brink of war" secretary of state.  Dulles to Bern, Switzerland following World War Two to get some clandestine figures to sign on to the fledgling CIA.

Dulles had impeccable credential for his assignment as a Wall Street lawyer.  You remember Wall Street.  This was the outfit that was recently bailed out by President Obama and the Congress. 

Dulles marched to the tune of Standard Oil.  With a client like that, Dulles held significant clout in the global order.

Dulles recruited talent from none other than the Nazi intelligence high command, chiefly from Gehlen Org.  This was the operation commanded by Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's intelligence chief for the Eastern front.

For almost ten years the Gehlen Org was the CIA's leading source of intelligence for Eastern Europe.  The CIA also employed other Nazi war criminals, including merchant of death Klaus Barbie, deservedly known as the "Butcher of Lyon" for work on the French front.

No, Newt and John, the CIA, despite your rosy scenario, was never an adjunct of Boy Scouts of America.

Firmly ensconced, the CIA could march forward for the global corporate order.  Gentleman, there was that escapade in Iran. 

The duly elected government of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh was overthrown in a coup the CIA engineered on behalf of British Petroleum after he had the supreme audacity of seeking a better share of oil money for the Iranian people.
