This essay is inspired by what I learned about the efforts of the State Department, under Hillary Clinton, when it tried to reign in the CIA private war machine (drone strikes with their own kill list) and failed. This is the real scandal behind the fake scandal over "mishandled emails" and "dirty tricks" to help defeat Sanders in the primary. This scandal is not about emails but about who controls US foreign policy and, in the end, has the power to punish and reward those who aspire to the top levels of public leadership. This investigation goes back to the day that JFK, the one President who actually fired the CIA chief Dulles and then said he would dismantle it, was removed from office.

I will look beneath the surface of two fake scandals to expose the underlying truth about how the Deep State not only controls our policies but elects or takes out uncooperative leaders. The latest scandal is the "email scandal" which was used to defeat Clinton and elect Trump. The earlier was the Benghazi scandal, which covered up CIA gun smuggling to terrorists in Syria leading to a conflict that has killed nearly half a million people and caused (along with Iraq) a massive immigration crisis in Europe which has led to the resurgence of fascist parties in Belgium, Greece, France, and other countries.)

The Email Scandal

When the Clinton/Obama administration tried to reign in the CIA by making their drone attacks and kill list subject to White House oversight they became instant enemies......and that is why the CIA/FBI so detested Clinton, though in the end, she caved in.

The scandal behind the scandal of Clinton's emails is suggested in an article from the Wall St. Journal:

"The e-mails were not merely forwarded news articles but consisted of informal discussions between Clinton's senior aides about whether to oppose upcoming CIA drone strikes in Pakistan.
