The Chris Hedges Report Podcast: John Kiriakou on Why the CIA Needs to be Abolished

  1. It will wither from the lack of need once we tackle and take care of the inflationary debt problem.
    That’s not a government led process, however. People to need to rethink their trading habits and create the shift that leads to peace and prosperity.

    Our answers are found through the free market catalyst.

    1. ruling class answers in the fake free market…your hillbilly economics hilarious

  2. I just wished that people like Chris Hedges and John Kiriakou would finally understand 9/11 . They are both intelligent enough to understand the physics of it. If they are not, I would really really really ask them to go and talk to a physicist if it is at all possible that steel beams and concrete are the same as thin air.

    Until you understand, that it was not two planes that brought down three buildings you completely misunderstand everything that happened afterwards. And if you think, that surely no government would kill 3000 of their own population, i need to ask you if you think no one knew that Iraq did not have WMD’s? If you need proof, that there are people that give a shit about other human beings, read up on how Otto Ambros was treated by the US after WWII.

    1. You post utterly foolish unlearned dreck and you do it in marginal written English comp. Your post in Medium is an insult to anyone who had even an average HS physics teacher, it’s idiotic double-talk and bullshit. You don’t know how to describe an event honestly, or propose a significant question, you are a bullshitter and not a very good one.

      People like you posting here are a reason this website needs to moderate out loons from the comment forum. Nobody should listen to to a written word out of this liar/fool Swen Gerards.

  3. And it is so fucking sad to hear towards the end them talking about Allen Dulles, his brother and their involvement in the assassination of JFK. They really need to read up on Allen Dulles. What he did after WWII and his time at the OSS, how he used his position, worked with the Cercle Pinay, and then handled Joseph McCarthy. McCarthy was completely in line with the Anti-Communist agenda with the people in power. How then does it make sense for Dulles to tackle McCarthy when he was investigating the CIA for Communist ties? It makes sense when you understand that Allen Dulles was integral in working together with the former Nazis that were pulled into the CIA after WWII. Dulles needed to know how much McCarthy already knew about the former Nazis in the CIA. That is why he not only wrote an official letter to McCarthy urging him to tell him what he knew, but also used the CIA to break into McCarthy’s office. It took another couple of decades before the CIA admitted to using and protecting former Nazis after WWII regardless of how many innocent people they had killed.

    1. Truman wanted the OSS / CIA to gather intelligence information. The information was to be passed to other agencies for analyzes. Allen Dulles had other ideas. By manipulation and double speak he guided the CIA into being a secret operating branch of the government

  4. Fully agree that the cia should be abolished! It will never happen! Does anyone believe the there are “leaders” out there that will stand up with authority to do so and try to abolish the cia?

    JFK wanted to abolish the cia and he was murdered, most likely by the cia, mossad, and mi6. RFK stood for cleaning up the coverup and he was murdered, most likely by the cia, mossad, and mi6.

    Does anyone believe that the cia, mossad, and mi6 will stand by and allow anyone to meddle in their murderous sand box. I believe not.
