Judge Brett Kavanaugh joins in a major CIA Coverup

Recommended Posts

From the article: The  2-to1 decision authored by Judge Brett Kavanaugh (a George W. Bush appointee and co-author of the Kenneth Starr report that published extensive details of the Monica Lewinsky affair), agreed with Justice Department and CIA lawyers that because the history volume was a "pre-decisional and deliberative" draft, its release would "expose an agency's decision making process in such a way as to discourage candid discussion within the agency and thereby undermine the agency's ability to perform its functions."

I thought your comment would be about Kavanaugh's recent decision against Jeff Morley.

Glad I clicked on your link.  So he joined the coverup in 2014.  

In either case that would make for a great headline in the new York times or Washington post.  Kavanaugh Joins CIA Coverup !

Check out what was covered up:

<quote on, emphasis added>

Titled "CIA's Internal Investigation of the Bay of Pigs Operation," Volume V apparently contains [Jack] Pfeiffer's aggressive defense of the CIA against a hard-hitting 1961 internal review, written by the agency's own Inspector General, which held the CIA singularly responsible for the poor assumptions, faulty planning and incompetence that led to the quick defeat of the paramilitary exile brigade by Fidel Castro's military at the Bahia de Cochinos between April 17 and April 20, 1961.

The Archive obtained under FOIA and published the IG Report in 1998. The CIA has admitted in court papers that the Pfeiffer study contains "a polemic of recriminations against CIA officers who later criticized the operation," as well as against other Kennedy administration officials who Pfeiffer contended were responsible for this foreign policy disaster. </q>

Namely, Dean Rusk and McGeorge Bundy, who took over BOP planning from the CIA in March '61.

This deflates conventional wisdom concerning the Bay of Pigs, does it not?

Pfeiffer absolves the CIA for the failure of the BOP.

"A major CIA cover-up"? 

It's a major cover-up of the activities of Rusk and Bundy.
