Deep Penetration

WaPo : Who Runs the CIA? Outsiders for Hire.

If you've read the above piece in the Washington Post you might believe a "mammoth" private spying industry" all but runs U.S. intelligence operations today.

According to RJ Hillhouse in WaPo : "Over the past five years (some say almost a decade), there has been a revolution in the intelligence community toward wide-scale outsourcing. Private companies now perform key intelligence-agency functions, to the tune, I'm told, of more than $42 billion a year. Intelligence professionals tell me that more than 50 percent of the National Clandestine Service (NCS) -- the heart, brains and soul of the CIA -- has been outsourced to private firms such as Abraxas, Booz Allen Hamilton, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon."

Now, is this supposed to be new or news? That big business runs the CIA ? Excuse me, but Big Business founded CIA officially back when Frankie Roosevelt appointed the first Coordinator of Information - Wild Bill Donovan - war hero and powerful Wall Street lawyer (also classmate of Roosevelt).

NCS is new – created after 9/11/01, thanks to a bill from U.S. Senator C. Patrick Roberts, to coordinate HUMINT (human intel). As far back as, well even to Hitler, business folks have been a good source of humint.

Henry Ford, Lindbergh, Bush grandpappy, William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy, John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon (head of Alcoa, banker, and Secretary of Treasury), DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil (now Exxon), Ford, ITT, Allen Dulles (later head of the CIA), National City Bank, and General Electric – all friendly with fascism and humint.

Why, just look at Brewster & Jennings businesswoman, Ms. Valerie Plame. If real businessmen aren't gathering the intel – CIA creates their own businessmen and women.

Ever wonder why so many high level CIA are from big business and return to big business after their job stints in the Company?

You think the overthrow of Jacob Arbenz in Guatemala was an original CIA idea or United Fruit with suits on the ground in Guatemala City?

You think Big Business/CIA were not backing both Castro and Batista in that revolution because Anglo business thugs thought they would get a better deal if Castro's revolutionaries got rid of a greedy Batista and if not Batista would be humbled at coming so close to losing his American protectors?

You think ITT board member and ex-CIA director John McCone didn't promise Henry Kissinger $1 million to support CIA action in preventing Allende from taking office in Chile? Or that David Rockefeller's business group wanted to protect copper mining and feared Allende would nationalize mining and utilities?

You think Vietnam was fought because CIA humint came back stating communism was a dire threat?

You think the Nicaragua/Contra war was again about commies at our backdoor? Or big business losing another chunk of the latin plantation? Lots of big business hired intel running around Danli and El Paraiso back then too, although may pose as school marms and volunteers of all sorts or nuns and priests.

And Panama. To catch a drug dealer or dump one greedy little overseer to install a new government (board of directors) for that lucrative little slice of the Latin American pie.

You think Smedley Butler was bullshitting about high class muscle pay for Big Business and Wall Street? A businessman in military uniform.

I could be wrong but it appears Ms. Hillhouse feels, in her own words, that "The private spy industry has succeeded where no foreign government has: It has penetrated the CIA and is running the show."

Heeheeheehee. Private spy industry has penetrated CIA and running the show. Hon, my daddy could have told you that 50 years ago. Well, actually he would have said Big Business birthed CIA, for home and abroad.

And ya know, since today Big Business is multinational and global who can say that no "foreign government" is not running the show?
