CIA Fueling New U.S. Drug Epidemic Using Cheap Afghani Heroin?; CIA, Obama Team Up to Hide Darkest Secrets

CIA Fueling New U.S. Drug Epidemic Using Cheap Afghani Heroin?; CIA, Obama Team Up to Hide Darkest Secrets

13_CIA_Heroin

Across the U.S., heroin use has skyrocketed. But how are these drugs getting into the country, and is the CIA back to its old tricks, using drugs money to fund covert operations?

By Victor Thorn —

The tragic overdose death of Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on February 2, brought renewed interest to the subject of cheap heroin on America’s streets. Across the country, heroin use is on the rise, despite the billions of dollars spent by United States law enforcement fighting it. Recently, southwestern Pennsylvania suffered 22 overdoses in little more than a week’s time from tainted heroin, and dozens of users were hospitalized in Camden, New Jersey due to a highly potent batch that was being sold on the streets of that city.

One of the big questions asked by naïve media talking heads is: Where does all of this heroin come from? The answer is the same as it was a decade ago following a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-led invasion of Afghanistan: 75%-80% of the world’s heroin is exported from Afghanistan. In spite of the fact that the U.S. military controls a great deal of that mountainous country, production levels hit record highs last year.

Since American forces have been entrenched in Afghanistan for a dozen years and have squandered over $700B to date, AMERICAN FREE PRESS has long been one of the few publications to openly address a highly taboo subject. Namely, elements within the CIA having been heavily involved with illegal narcotics trafficking since the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s and Iran-Contra in the 1980s.

On March 13, this reporter contacted investigative historian Robert Morrow, whose research into the murder of CIA-sanctioned pilot Barry Seal is unparalleled. Seal claims to have run drugs for U.S. intelligence.

When asked about official criminality associated with Afghan’s opium business, Morrow replied: “U.S. government involvement in the drug trade ebbs and flows depending on a particular administration’s level of corruption. If a Bush or Clinton is in office, you better believe it’s rip-roaring.”

Morrow provided more insights. “Or, maybe their complicity is so institutionalized that presidents don’t even control it. Intelligence agencies and the military do. The government has many faces. OneDEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] agent could be entirely honest while another is on the take from drug cartels and the government.”

Delving into deep state secrets, Morrow stressed: “The people who ran all the drugs into America during the Iran-Contra era were George Bush, Sr., CIA Director William Casey, Oliver North and both Clintons. Airports like the one in Mena, Arkansas that Bill and Hillary operated stretched all across the southern U.S. You need to remember that Barry Seal [who allegedly flew more cocaine into America than any pilot in history] was personal friends with Bill Clinton. He also spoke with Bush, Sr. on a weekly basis.”

Morrow turned his attention to Clinton’s partner-in-crime.

“As Vice President, George Bush, Sr. had all aspects of law enforcement answering to him,” said Murrow. “That way, legitimate police officers weren’t arresting his CIA drug dealers.”

Ending on a riveting note, Morrow said: “These topics aren’t expressed in the mainstream media because it would be detrimental to the government’s credibility. Nobody is supposed to know that certain elements running our country are drug dealers, murderers and thugs.”

On March 13, this reporter also spoke with Dean Henderson, author of the book Big Oil & Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf: Four Horsemen, Eight Families & Their Global Intelligence, Narcotics & Terror Network.

In terms of CIA links to the Afghan heroin trade, Henderson said: “They’ve been running it from the get-go, all the way back to when the Mujahideen were formed. It’s been the same game starting withJimmy Carter’s people through Reagan, the Bushes, Clinton and now Obama.”

Henderson provided more details: “After the Vietnam War when heroin stopped coming out of the Golden Triangle, the CIA set up bases near Afghanistan in the late 1970s. CIA asset Osama binLaden helped train these men, and soon warlords were planting poppies. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Obama’s advisors work for the same neocons as did Bush’s. These same people do the dirty work.”

Victor Thorn is a hard-hitting researcher, journalist and author of over 50 books.

CIA, Obama Team Up to Hide Darkest Secrets

By Richard Walker

Recent coverage of the congressional battle over Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) snooping on the Senate Intelligence Committee has served to obscure the real story of the CIA’s misdeeds and the demands to cover them up.

For example, in 2010 and 2011, there were credible reports of the CIA running a “black site” in Somalia, even though President Barack Obama issued a 2009 presidential directive banning torture and ordering the closure of all secret black sites used by the CIA. However, the White House cleverly worded the directive to ensure it did not limit detainees being secretly interrogated in countries that routinely use torture.

Instead of making the CIA accountable, Obama has failed to allow the public to see an inter-agency task force report on “the agency,” which he commissioned in 2009, and never displayed any inclination to expose the torture used during the Bush era. On the contrary, as President-Elect Obama, when asked about the issue, he told the American people it was better to look forward and not back.

Obama knows what the CIA has hidden in its files and has no appetite to make this information public. But it is not only the CIA that would like him to stem the tide of demands by some members of Congress for access to all the CIA torture material; there are governments in 54 countries that aided the agency in the rendition and torture of suspects and they want this issue to go away. Thenames of the countries are known but not the names or the numbers of suspects the CIA processed through its black sites.

There are intelligence figures in European nations, including Polandand Lithuania, who fear they could find themselves hauled before theHuman Rights Court in The Hague should the CIA spill its secrets. There are others in Britain, Ireland, Austria, Belgium and Spain, to name but a few European nations, who facilitated rendition that led to torture. They, too, worry they will be charged with abetting torture.

A stark example of how the CIA operated after 9-11 was a black site on an army base in Poland where detainees were waterboarded and subjected to a range of tactics that constituted torture. The CIA personnel who set up the site, picked up $15M in cash from a diplomatic pouch in the U.S. embassy in Warsaw so they could renovate the site with special cages.

CIA personnel then refused to sign papers for that site, knowing they were breaking international laws.

So when the media focuses on whether or not the CIA spied on a congressional committee, it loses sight of the bigger picture, which is the sheer lack of information made available to the American public on the use of torture at black sites on land and on ships and the role played by the CIA when it used foreign intelligence services to torture suspects.

A retired European intelligence officer familiar with the CIA’s recent history, agreed to speak to this writer on condition of anonymity. He felt certain the congressional committee would eventually release a sanitized version of the information it saw, and doubted whether the whole congressional report would ever see the light of day.

“The CIA is not worried by the media’s coverage of the work of the congressional committee because it takes the focus away from the big issue, which is all the black stuff the agency has been doing since 2001,” he said. “That’s the jewel the CIA and White House will protect at all costs. You simply cannot separate the bad behavior of an intelligence agency and its political masters, whether Bush or Obama.”

    Both political parties in the U.S are corrupted beyond repair and the very few members of government such as Ted Cruz or Mike Lee are demonized, marginalized, and silenced by the praetorian guard mainstream media and their prospective parties. We are in a post-Constitutional era. Our children are being indoctrinated from grade school to colleges and universities. Capitalism is attacked on a daily basis. The Supreme Court, EPA, IRS and every other institution are being used as weapons by the federal government to destroy any company in the fossil fuel industry to advance the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people: climate control. The socialist Democratic Party has laid waste to the greatest health care system on the planet, our military is a shell of its former self, race relations is at an all time low as the president and attorney general light the fuse to every incident, our police are being demonized, demoralized and executed, our borders are nonexistent, hundreds of cities and towns have declared themselves sanctuary cities and defy federal law which is ignored by the federal government anyway. They know they can’t get the people’s guns so they go after the stores and distributors. This government run by George Soros, the puppet master, has illegally helped dethrone governments such as Egypt and Libya, leaving both countries in turmoil, the latter being taken over by the JV team ISIS which has slaughtered thousands of innocent Muslims, Christians and whomever else doesn’t conform to their sick ideology. The U.S is a country that’s lost its moral fiber. It funds butchers that go by the name of Planned Parenthood who slaughter and sell aborted babies. It may not be end times but we are very close to losing the greatest successful country ever conceived: America.

    THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS THAT OUR OWN GOVERNMENT IS IN THE HEROIN BUSINESS. HOW CAN A GOVERNMENT WHO CLAIMS TO BE LOOKING OUT FOR THE WELFARE OF THE PEOPLE IT HAS BEEN HIRED TO REPRESENT BE BEHAVING IN SUCH AN ABHORRENT ILLEGAL WAY? IT IS QUITE DISGUSTING. WE KNOW THIS WAS STARTED WITH THE MOST EVIL PERVERT IN THIS COUNTRY AND THAT IS GEORGE H.W. BUSH. HE MOST LIKELY GOT HIS SON JEB RUNNING TO PROTECT HIM FROM JAIL OR THE ELECTRIC CHAIR. IT IS BAD ENOUGH THAT HE IS CREATING HEROIN DRUG ADDICTS WHEREVER HIM AND HIS CRONIES ARE DISTRIBUTING IT, BUT THE OTHER EVILS THIS MAN HAS DONE ARE ASTONISHING. HE IS A NAZI, HIS FATHER PRESCOTT BUSH FINANCED HITLER WITH HIS N.Y. UNION BANK. HE WAS INVOLVED IN THE SHOOTING OF PRESIDENT REAGAN. HIS FAMILY WERE FRIENDS WITH THE HINKLEYS. WHEN HE WAS WORKING AT THE C.I.A. HE WAS INVOLVED IN THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK AND HE WAS INVOLVED IN MK ULTRA. IT WAS THEN HE STARTED MOLESTING CHILDREN, LITTLE 3 YEAR OLD GIRLS. READ CATHY O’BRIEN’S BOOK, TRANSFORMATIONS OR BRICE TAYLOR’S BOOK, THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES. BUSH ’41’ RAPED BOTH THEIR DAUGHTERS WHEN THEY WERE AS YOUNG AS 3, REPEATEDLY. HE IS A MONSTER. HIS WHOLE FAMILY ARE EVIL SATANISTS. THEY DON’T WIN ELECTIONS, THEY STEAL THEM. THERE IS NO WAY JEB WOULD CONSIDER RUNNING IF THAT WEREN’T THE CASE, CONSIDERING THAT MORE THAN HALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THAT 9-11-01 WAS AN INSIDE JOB WITH CHENEY AND GEORGE W. BUSH DOING DADDY’S DIRTY WORK.

    It’s not a secret Obama is an Afghani heroin junkie. Take away his padded suits (and the tanning lotion he puts on for the TV cameras) and all that is left is the REAL Obama….a VERY skinny, homosexual junkie.Here’s a video of “he man” Obama (LOL) working out with five-pound aluminum women’s weights.

    The sight of the strain on his face in order to lift these girly weights all the way up is hilarious.

    Hi, I was entrapped by the CIA in the year 1989 right here in Australia and have been a subject of electronic torture and persecution ever since with their microwave weapon technology.You may have heard of Bill Hamilton of Inslaw, Inc., of Washington D.C., a former NSA nanotechnology genius who created PROMIS, the Prosecutor’s Management Information System, that can read your mind via your visual cerebral cortex, the mid-brain, and what you see with your eyes enters, the same and is displayed on a TV monitor. (beam me up Scotty)

    It’s happening in many countries all across the world and I know of some persons who have committed suicide and others who have died in mysterious circumstances.

    These microwave weapons cripple your body and to a degree your mind. I spent six months paralyzed in a wheelchair and still use a four-wheel walker as my legs and arms are still badly damaged.

    If they ever entrap you, you will wish that you were never born at all; I pray for death every night I go to sleep, That’s after being physically and sexually and mentally brutalized hour after hour.

    Break my mind, then CIA and you will experience a massive KARMIC side blow worldwide.

    Drop me an email and I will disclose many of their sick tricks of an unspeakable nature.cosmic07@bigpond.com

October, 2004: Google acquires CIA-linked company

“Somebody Is Watching You!”

But be not fearful because SOMEBODY is not only watching them but recording in “infinite non redactable detail” any and all of their inspired by Satan crimes against G-d’s children and for which the LAKE is ready for their arrival upon “death of their bodies” so they then can be in the realms of eternity their “Leader…Satan”!!

 

October, 2004: Google acquires CIA-linked company
Google has acquired Keyhole, Inc., which has a database of 3-D spy-in-the-sky images from all over the globe. Their software provides a virtual fly-over and zoom-in with one-foot resolution. Keyhole is supported by In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm funded by the CIA, in an effort to “identify and invest in companies developing cutting-edge information technologies that serve United States national security interests.”

In 2003, Keyhole’s CEO John Hanke was quoted in an In-Q-Tel press release: “Keyhole’s strategic relationship with In-Q-Tel means that the Intelligence Community can now benefit from the massive scalability and high performance of the Keyhole enterprise solution.”

The spooks in Washington now had another hook into Google, Inc. Then in mid-2005, Rob Painter joined Google as Senior Federal Manager. He came straight from In-Q-Tel, where he had been Director of Technology Assessment.

 

November, 2006: Comment from Robert Steele
from John Battelle’s Searchblog

It would be useful to get specifics on who at Google denied this. I am quite positive that Google is taking money and direction from my old colleague Dr. Rick Steinheiser in the Office of Research and Development at CIA, and that Google has done at least one major prototype effort focused on foreign terrorists which produced largely worthless data.

Hopefully Google learned from Bill Clinton that the denial is often more costly than the deed when it completely undermines one’s integrity.

CIA is not very sophisticated. In 1986 they knew the 18 functionalities for an all-source analysis workstation (Google for CATALYST and CIA) and they still don’t have it. CIA is a kludge of contractor-provided stovepipes, none of which play well together.

I like Google. I think they have enormous potential. I think they are seriously stupid to be playing with CIA, which cannot keep a secret and is more likely to waste time and money than actually produce anything useful.

Best wishes to all, Robert Steele    Posted by: Robert David Steele, November 9, 2006 03:17 PM

 

Spooks on board at Google

Matt Cutts, a software engineer at Google since January 2000, used to work for the National Security Agency and had a top-secret clearance. Google would like to hire more like him. Can you trust Google with a database of all the search terms you’ve ever used?

 

========================================

 

Nielson/NetRatings reported that 25 percent of Google’s
cookies were deleted in July 2004,  based on their direct
measurement panel. Do one-fourth of all Googlers know
something about Google’s total tracking that you don’t?

Purpose revealed behind the 2038 expiration date for Google’s cookie!

On 2004-02-26 Larry Page told Reuters:

“On the more exciting front, you can imagine your brain being augmented by Google. For example you think about something and your cell phone could whisper the answer into your ear.”

At the Search Engine Strategies conference on 2004-03-03, Craig Silverstein said that in the future people will have “search pets”:

Silverstein sees search pets as being able to find to the correct answer to these tricky interpretive questions. Will searching as we know it be completely replaced by search pets? “We’ll still search for facts,” he says, “but in all likelihood the facts will be contained in a brain implant.”


… but … Will these Google brain implants be opt-in, opt-out, or pay-per-thought?
After we get our Google implants, and we happen to think of the word “Jew” for some reason, will we automatically start google-stepping?

We used to try and trick your browser into giving us your Google cookie, assuming that you have one. One-third of those using Internet Explorer were vulnerable to our JavaScript exploit. But that got boring after a year, so now we merely send our server to Google’s home page on occasion and pick up a new cookie to show you:

Gookie

Yikes! Too many preservatives: Expires on January 17, 2038PREF=ID=1ee1349b174cd530
TM=1157559460
LM=1157559460
S=aR-VHdIQD3E7dOv5

The ID number is your very own. Either write it on your forehead, or delete your Google cookie so that they have to give you a new one.

You may have some preferences set between this ID and the TM.

TM=1157559460 means 2006-09-06 16:17:40 GMT — the time when you first got this cookie.

LM=1157559460 means 2006-09-06 16:17:40 GMT — the last time you set some preferences.

We believe the S= is a checksum to insure data integrity.

The CIA had to stop using a comparatively innocent log-analysis cookie that expired in 10 years, and their document search site isn’t even used by many people. Google handles 200 million searches per day, and their cookie expires in 2038. One of Google’s leading software engineers, Matt Cutts, had a top-secret clearance and used to work for the National Security Agency. Google doesn’t even feel the need to defend their cookie policy; they merely laugh off anyone who inquires about it.

A cult of geeky blogging Google pundits joins in, and ridicules the notion that you’ll be using the same computer in 2038. That’s not the point. Google’s expiration date is a barometer of its insensitivity to privacy issues. When we noticed this in year 2000 (it was the first time we had ever seen such a long-lived cookie), the idea of Google Watch was born. Google’s response to other privacy issues since then tells us that we were right.

The purpose of the unique ID is to record your search terms for present or future profiling. Google says that the cookie is needed to set preferences. At the CIA, Google’s cookie story would be termed a cover story, because the unique ID is completely superfluous for this function, even when the rest of the cookie is used to do this. In fact, you can set preferences without any sort of cookie at all.

Have you seen this on Google’s site?



For years Google has been telling us that
the cookie is necessary if you want to set
user preferences. How can we argue with
Google? We don’t have 100 computer
science PhDs on our payroll !


But we did have an old laptop that we loaned to the local zoo.
After only one year, they got back to us with a solution.
On behalf of our local zoo,
we are pleased to present…

 

How to set Google preferences –
and still disable Google’s cookie!

We don’t know how long this will work, or if it works for the Google country domains, but it’s worth a try because it’s so easy. Perform these nine steps in this order:

UPDATE 2004-11-11: Fifteen months after we posted this procedure, Google sabotaged it. Here’s a new hack you can use. Edit your current Google bookmark by inserting the four characters q=+& immediately after the question mark in the URL. This places a space in the search box, and leading spaces are ignored when Google searches. It also sidesteps Google’s sabotage because the box is no longer empty. Note the new addition to number 6 below, which accomplishes the same thing.


1.  Enable cookies if they are turned off.

2.  Go to http://www.google.com/

3.  Click on “Preferences” on the right side of the search box.

4.  Set your preferences and click “Save Preferences.” You’re back to the search box.

5.  Click on “Advanced Search” on the right side of the search box.

6.  Do not fill out anything, but just click on “Google Search.”
Update: Place a single space in the main search box and click on “Google Search.”

7.  Bookmark this new search page.

8.  Disable your cookies for Google. Explorer 6.0

            Tools — Internet Options — Privacy — Edit (near the bottom) — type in google.com — Block — OK — OK

Firefox 1.0

            Tools — Options — Privacy — Stored cookies — highlight your google.com cookie — check Don’t allow… box at bottom — Remove cookie — OK — OK

Opera 7.51

            Tools — Cookies — highlight your google.com cookie — Delete — New — type in google.com — check Apply… — uncheck 3 Accept… — OK — Close

Netscape 7.1

            Tools — Cookie Manager — Manage Stored Cookies — highlight your google.com cookie — check Don’t allow… box at bottom — Remove cookie — Close

9.  Test your cookie block:

        Exit and reload your browser — go to http://www.google.com — click Preferences on the right side of the search box — Google should tell you that your cookies seem to be disabled

Now when you use your new bookmark for Google searches, your preferences are passed to Google in the URL, without a cookie. And with cookies disabled, Google won’t be able to associate your search terms with the unique ID number that they use in their cookie. This is so wonderful that we think Google will patch this workaround sooner rather than later. If they do, it will prove for once and for all that the real reason Google uses cookies is to track you, and not to set preferences. But you knew that already, didn’t you?

You can block Google’s cookie, but how sticky is your IP address?  Check it here.  If it stays the same for several days, you should know that Google can also call up a history of search terms by IP address, even without your cookie ID.  Searching Google from work, or from a broadband connection at home, could betray you.  One solution is to use Scroogle for your sensitive Google searches.

Why we hate Google’s cookie

From the Electronic Frontier Foundation‘s analysis of the Patriot ActBe careful what you put in that Google search.  The government may now spy on web surfing of innocent Americans, including terms entered into search engines, by merely telling a judge anywhere in the U.S. that the spying could lead to information that is ‘relevant’ to an ongoing criminal investigation. The person spied on does not have to be the target of the investigation. This application must be granted and the government is not obligated to report to the court or tell the person spied upon what it has done.”

 

Google’s Chief Is Googled, to the Company’s Displeasure

by Saul Hansell
The New York Times, August 8, 2005, page C1

Google says its mission is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” But it does not appear to take kindly to those who use its search engine to organize and publish information about its own executives.
CNETNews.com, a technology news Web site, said last week that Google had told it that the company would not answer any questions from CNET’s reporters until July 2006. The move came after CNET published an article last month that discussed how the Google search engine can uncover personal information and that raised questions about what information Google collects about its users.

The article, by Elinor Mills, a CNET staff writer, gave several examples of information about Google’s chief executive, Eric E. Schmidt, that could be gleaned from the search engine. These included that his shares in the company were worth $1.5 billion, that he lived in Atherton, Calif., that he was the host of a $10,000-a-plate fund-raiser for Al Gore’s presidential campaign and that he was a pilot.

After the article appeared, David Krane, Google’s director of public relations, called CNET editors to complain, said Jai Singh, the editor in chief of CNETNews.com. “They were unhappy about the fact we used Schmidt’s private information in our story,” Mr. Singh said. “Our view is what we published was all public information, and we actually used their own product to find it.”

He said Mr. Krane called back to say that Google would not speak to any reporter from CNET for a year.

In an instant-message interview, Mr. Krane said, “You can put us down for a ‘no comment.’ ”

When asked if Google had any objection to the reprinting of the information about Mr. Schmidt in this article, Mr. Krane replied that it did not.

Mr. Singh, who has worked in technology news for more than two decades, said he could not recall a similar situation. “Sometimes a company is ticked off and won’t talk to a reporter for a bit,” he said, “but I’ve never seen a company not talk to a whole news organization.”
