Jeff Wells comments in his Rigorous Intuition blog from January 12, that finally the mainline media is going after the CIA-money-laundering banks.
However, I am not so sure, that the motives of those media-outlets are really as pure as they make it look.
Whenever the mainstream media, especially the Wall Street Journal, is going after a seemingly controversial story I suspect an ulterior motive, which would have nothing to do with informing the public about political crooks and getting them to justice.
The CIA has been in the cross hairs of some of the Bush-administration for quite a while. By now, it has been quietly dismembered for also.
It seems to me that there is a power-struggle going on between different economic elites.
The elite with the upper hand is more attuned to the super-secret NSA, which is working from inside the Pentagon and has no congressional oversight at all - and of course, they have their Office of Special Plans as well.
They are trying to get the CIA on their side by transforming it. But this might have a blowback. Some of the displaced might not go quietly.
So now in order to discredit them some beans are being spilled, not enough of course to really rock the boat. Some countries, which are very big in money laundering, are not mentioned at all. And the targeted Saudi-Arabia is on the shoot-down list of the Neo-cons.
Since Bush, the younger, always has been nothing more than a puppet in this administration, Cheney and his minions might not have any scruples in sacrificing him now, after the elections.
We should remember that Bush, the older, ex-President and ex-CIA-chief, has been publicly against the Iraq adventure. At first, I thought that this was no more than a ploy, but now I am convinced it was his honest opinion, an opinion shared by most of the CIA.
Osama bin Laden, of course, was a creation of the CIA. And the guy impersonating bin Laden a few times until the last elections was an actor paid by them. It was last minutes try to get Kerry elected instead of Bush by showing Bush’s incompetence in this supposed "war against terrorism". And it would have worked, if the elections had not been rigged.
Of course, another outfit did the Osama tapes after the election. Even Jihad Unspun caught unto that, or maybe they got a tip. Some say they have some relationship to the CIA.
So, whom should we be rooting for?
The CIA or the NSA and the Neocons?
Or maybe should hope that they will finally destroy each other?
But then, the last time those 2 elites had a disagreement it brought us WW II: There was the banking elite around Churchill and Roosevelt against the industrial elite in Germany and the US (Henry Ford and Prescott Bush, for instance), financing Hitler.
And the cannon fodder for their power plays was most of the world, soldiers and civilians alike - and the final victims were 50 million dead and untold millions maimed.
The stakes might even be higher this time around.
