CIA Has Been Tickling People to Death for Years
Tuesday, 21 October 2008 09:54
by Peter Chamberlin

Michael Hayden said the clandestine agency is using Predator missile attacks to "tickle" enemy groups, to provoke a reaction.

"We use military operations to excite the enemy, prompting him to respond."

The agency director was jokingly referring to the policy of committing multiple mass-murders of innocent citizens of Pakistan, as a tactic for provoking retaliation by their relatives. This immoral terrorist act is considered to be a legitimate military strategy by the demented CIA mind. It sees no wrong in committing criminal acts, to cause others to commit further criminal acts, as a rationale for starting a divisive world war for resources, under the guise of "self-defense." The idea that committing acts of war, to cause a greater war is not a war crime itself, is a product of a deranged psychopathic mind. This psychopathic mind personified by the CIA is the scourge of mankind.

The American use of the Israeli terror tactic of "targeted assassinations" to perhaps kill one "wanted" individual (remember no "war" has been declared there), without concern for the attendant civilian death is a war crime. The use of flying terror platforms to fire Hellfire missiles into crowds of innocent people, in a country that you call your "ally" is either pure idiocy or evil of the highest order. The choice to fight a ground war from the air reaps little military gain at the enormous cost of widespread civilian death.
 
Agency Director Hayden said that the CIA is "working closely with the military...where American troops have fought Sunni insurgents." If the agency was really working with our own military or with military leaders in allied nations then the war might not be at an impasse. In all war theaters the secret war has served to escalate the real war that our troops must fight, for political reasons. The question is, is the CIA a "rogue" agency creating problems for our own military, or is it doing so on White House orders?
Did the agency bother to consult with our allies the Pakistani Army on June 12, when it sent a Predator to kill 11 Pakistani soldiers at Gora Pai Outpost in the Mohmand region?

Hayden said, "Our pilots are targeting not structures, but individuals."

But clearly, after watching the video of the Predator attack, who could believe that it is possible to identify who is being targeted on the ground by these terminator-planes?

Did the CIA bother to consult U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen on the September 18 Predator strike that killed six and wounded three, a mere hours after he personally reassured Pakistan's prime minister of "cooperation and coordination" on security issues?

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who was one of those officials who met with Mullen, told reporters that Pakistani officials "were not informed" of the strike beforehand. Asked about Mullen's statement, he said,

"It's a clear, clear commitment to Pakistan to respect Pakistan's sovereignty...and now if having said that there was an attack later in the night, that means there is some sort of an institutional disconnect on their side, and if so, they will have to sort it out," he said.

Here we have evidence from a foreign perspective of the massive disconnect within the government of the United States, in this case, between the Pentagon and the CIA, over the spy agency's running its own separate foreign policy in the war on terror. It is seen coming to a head over the covert military policy of the US spy bureau verses the legitimate policies of the actual military. This policy extends deep within the establishment reflecting the vast moral differences between most of our government and the super-secret spy bureau that flies our flag.

The brutal immoral CIA policies of terrorizing (sorry, I meant "tickling") civilians to create panic and hopefully generate specific controlled reactions is not only the cause of the terror war, but it is the reason that the military cannot achieve anything approaching victory on either of the two other fronts. In Pakistan, as in all the world's frontline states, the secret US policy actually creates terrorist groups to administer the "tickling" on behalf of the agency to the targeted people. This, in turn, make the local fight against insurgencies unwinnable, by any acceptable standards.

In Pakistan, the "local Taliban" (under the command of "public enemy number one," Baitullah Mehsud), which US forces are allegedly targeting, are known among the local population as tools of the US, Indian, Afghan and Israeli secret services. Mehsud's apparent immunity from American retaliation, his detailed knowledge of Pakistani troop movements and his highly-advanced communications equipment and weaponry is cited as proof of foreign sponsorship. In other words, the CIA is creating the justification (bombings in Pakistan and cross-border attacks from there into Afghanistan by CIA proxy fighters) that is providing a sort of legitimacy for military actions.

In Iraq, the same pattern of covert "tickling" was carried-out by shadowy US-connected terror groups, who drove the inter-religious civil war that successfully partitioned most of the country. The harsh attacks carried-out upon fellow Sunnis by these "al Qaida linked" groups pushed the Iraqis into fighting against themselves. The same thing was attempted in Lebanon with Sunni terrorist groups like Fatah al-Islam. In the Palestinian Territories the Security Forces carried-out the same function against the legitimate Hamas government forces. Before that, US-backed Muslim terrorists were brought into Yugoslavia who attacked ("tickled") local Muslims to agitate for international intervention.

Before the demise of the Soviet Union and the creation of the new "Islamic threat" by the CIA, covert "tickling" operations were carried-out by our mercenary forces of right-wing extremist white guys in Europe, like Operation Gladio in Italy. The secret CIA armies there tickled our unfortunate European allies into electing hard-right political parties which supported American aggression.

Throughout all the previous examples, the CIA has followed the same "shock doctrine" of applying terror bombings to targeted populations in order to stimulate planned responses. This form of mind warfare has been developed by government psychologists and behavioralists studying the phenomenon since the fire-bombings of WWII were used to manipulate the German population. The link between political terrorism and democratic reactions was discovered when intensive fire-bombing pushed frightened enraged German citizens to demand government concessions to appease Allied bombers. The science of the "shock doctrine" was developed from these studies, over time, by government scientists, who refined it down to its essence, learning to use smaller shocks to achieve the same reactions.

This same policy of psychological warfare became the principle tool of the CIA, where it was used over many decades upon both friend and foe of the United States, even upon the American people themselves. Provocative "ticklings" of various types were administered to the American people to control social pressures, from the assassinations of our leaders, to the shocks of the destruction of our free press and our national economy. The American people were systematically shocked and demoralized, as we were driven like the cattle that they think we are down the road to the slaughterhouse.

On September 11, 2001, the wholesale slaughter of Americans began. American-allied intelligence agencies, worked in unison to administer the most severe "tickling" of all time, to a peaceful people who were normally slow to rouse to war, in order to start the stampede. Today, the CIA's own war has been sabotaged by the very tactics it has chosen to employ, to the point where our voluntary military force is decimated and our national economy is following suit. The government psychiatrists and schemers overlooked their primary obstacle, they never figured on the depth of the human spirit to resist the great obscenity being cast upon us. Anyone who is given the ability to see automatically begins to fight back.

The CIA war against the people of the world and especially against the American people is one of the greatest tragedies and crimes of our time. Their hostile actions have brought the world to the edge of the cataclysm we now face. Whatever their ulterior reasons are for destroying the country that they have sworn allegiance to, they cannot be allowed to succeed in their terrorist plans. This is the government that must be overthrown, the secret government of the United States.

The CIA must be abolished. Our remaining moral leaders must step forward to de-fund the agency. Our military leaders must follow former Joint Chief Peter Pace's example and refuse to carry-out immoral acts. The terminator planes being used by the CIA must be grounded. The proxy forces that they have created to "Balkanize" Pakistan just as they have done in Iraq must by stopped. Give the government there the help it needs by supporting the decisions it makes without attacking them for it.

Pakistan is not our enemy, but the CIA most definitely is.

Israeli terror tactic?
From whom do you think the Israelis learned? Killing and hurting innocents to demoralize the enemy has been a favorite US/UK (anglo) strategy for centuries (not that other cultures are much better, but no one is better at making themselves look saintly in the midst of atrocity). To name a few, there's intentionally infecting blankets with small pox as a 'gift' to Native Americans; the British opium wars on China (destroying people with drugs); fire bombing of Tokyo in which tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children were burned to death in their wooden homes; and the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki -- an act of unspeakable evil. Every war anglos have fought begins with dehumanizing the enemy as less than animals, followed by terror tactics and wholesale slaughtering of innocents. They usually win their 'just wars' through a combination of ruthlessness and immense wealth from world-wide pyramid schemes enabled by previous conquests. Then they get to write the 'official' history -- overlooking and spinning their most heinous crimes against humanity, codifying their war-time propaganda, and vilifying their opponents. I repeat, it's not just anglos playing at this 'game', but none surpass them; that's why they're the leaders of the prison planet (oops...'free world').

Actually you forgot to mention the Dresden Holocaust where at least 100,000 women and children were burnt alive in the fire storm. But then of course they were only Nazis.

Free Press?
The only reason you are allowed to extoll the garbage you put forth as news is that the very people and countries you vilify fought for your right to write this.

War is hell, either way, it heinous, its WAR. You either play to win or roll over and die. Mistakes are always made when humans and their creations (machines) are involved. Thats the nature of this world. Deal with it.

I for one hope the CIA continues to fight behind the scenes for the way of life we too often take for granted.

Pops misses the point
The point is the CIA is CREATING these enemies. training and funding and equipping thousands of fanatical Muslims, thats just nutty but they did it and the blowback was the WTC attacks and the subsequent Patriot Act which Congress and Supremes allowed to gut the Consitution.
You can't save democracy by destroying it.

CIA , the destroyer of democracies
I have always said that the CIA has done more to obstruct and in fact destroy democracy throughout the world than any other organization. While America proclaims democracy during the day, the CIA works during the night under the cover of darkness to destroy it. It has assassinated labor leaders and national leaders who sought to promote their people's interests before American business. It has provoked conflicts and wars through chicanery and subterfuge. It has been over 30 years now since it was last investigated - the Church Commission- and even that left a lot of information undisclosed. This organization infiltrates and subverts every government on earth against its own people's interests. Since WWII it has nurtured and suckled what was left of Nazi evil and transformed it into an American phenomenon.

Too bad John F. Kennedy wasn't able to carry through on his threat, after the Bay of Pigs, to "shatter the CIA into a million pieces." They, in collusion with others, got to him first. CIA is an evil organization, in which, nevertheless, many good, patriotic Americans work. The guys at the top of the organization are the only ones who know the "big picture," as well as our national "leaders," who are far different from the people the voters think they elect. The good people in the organization should clean house, for the sake of mankind, and for their own sakes. Hey, d'ya think those armed Predator drones could be reprogrammed to shoot at, shall we say, different targets?

CIA Justified as an Instrument of War.
Of course the CIA operates outside the public view. Of course the CIA is an independent organization. Of course the CIA targets terrorists and collaborating civilians. It was designed to do so by the people of the United States through the Congress and the President of the United States (elected to office by the citizens of the United States). We need a scapegoat to perform these activities so that we can disclaim them publicly while embracing them privately. Collateral damage to civilian who are supportive of terrorists is not collateral. Whole cities were bombed by every participant of WWII. Today's use of remote air power and unmanned vehicles of all sorts is a weapon of war used to combat and neutralize a nation that uses soldiers in civilian dress(women and children included)to fight its wars, being unable or unwilling to openly declare war on the United States. Declared or not, it is still war against the United States. 9/11 established that fact for all the world to witness. Civilians have always been a collateral resource for the armed uniformed military forces of all nations. Many uniformed Americans were killed in Vietnam by these civilian weapons carriers. Women and children are still being recruited, brainwashed, and sent forth as suicide bombers to blow up the enemy, regardless of nationality, creed, age, or sex. They are non-discriminating killers. America has adapted to this new warfare by taking it to the enemy on a scale that cannot be matched or anticipated by those who planned 9/11. You think drones are something ... you don't know the half of it. There are non-nuclear space weapons in place right now that are capable of destruction on a scale unimaginable to the average United States citizen ... all prepared in secret by the CIA for the defense of the homeland of the United States. God bless the CIA!

Dont worry, Pops gets it
The enemy of your enemy often has to be enabled to take it to your main enemy. The Muhajadeen in Afghanistan for example. Do you really think the CIA enabling them to defeat the Soviets actually considered them to be friends? Do you think the CIA thought that after the Soviets were out we'd be friendly with those left to run Afghanistan? Not a chance. It was a well calculated move as part of the overall thrust to defeat the Soviets during the cold war. You must consider the larger picture. Every day those in the Armed Forces, CIA, FBI, Police, etc. risk thier lives to protect you and your way of life. Is it perfect? No. Does it work? Not always. But, they DO risk their lives to protect yours. Would you do likewise? Would you do things against your better moral judgement to save your brother? Probably not from the basis of your opinion. However, thats often whats needed, and I pray God give them deliverance for sustaining the greatest ideals to which we do hold. Sometimes you have to play dirty, as there are real enemies to be dealt with.

(CIA) Criminals Internal & Abroad
When will the rest of the world wake up and understand that the American economy is what drives all major conflicts in the world, not religious belief or any other concoted reason. The Americans, with all their patriotism and technology could have (and if they had any right to be there in the first place, should have)concluded all hostilities within a matter of a few weeks in any combat they have been involved over the last 70 years. Sadly the economy take a little longer to kick into action and the coffers begin to swell once more. 9/11 was an inside job without a doubt. Within hours the alleged instigator had been named and targeted. The american people reacted predictably to the carefully orchestrated and managed media campaign which gave George W a blank cheque to go to war anywhere in the world. Wal-Mart could not keep up with the incredible demand for American Flags. These people would have thrown their life savings and more into this mass hysteria call for revenge. The sacrifice of a few unwitting martyrs who were elevated to near saintly patriotic heroes is testament to the orchestration by the CIA, which relegated the evangelists, of which there are no shortage in the USA preying on the gullible citizens, to rank amateur status. The American involvement in the Second World war suddenly opened eyes to the amazing economic benefits of being at war. Since then, Korea, Viet-nam, Iraq, Iran, All up and down Central America, the Middle East, Afganistan, and numerous other minor scuffles here and there are carefully planned and executed over prolonged periods without any real result. Why? Pure and simple greed for the greenback. And now the greed spread and without America being involved in a major squirmish the funding to support this monster has fallen away. The effects, well to America significant, but to many other countries in the world trying to fight their own battles like poverty etc. have sadly become major victims, and their only crime was to link their currency to the dollar in order to attempt to stabilize and strengthen their own economy.

Hmmm
Yes my friends it is a sad state of affairs. I do not pretend to know the answers nor will I extol any advice. If you look, we are at a precipice in the scale of human existance. It is unfortunate that people use war to fatten there wallets instead of protecting what is thiers. Ultimately this has all been reported by an old man imprisoned on the Island of Patmos some years ago. This is the time ( or the very near future ) when all of his visions will come to pass. Who says this? The creator does. We can pontificate all we like but it will change nothing. It is not predestination it is mearly the knowing of how people are going to act in certain situations. You still have the chance to stop depending on man and depend on your creator.
