CIA assassination manual ignored


Recommended Posts

In a message on another subject, I mentioned the CIA Assassination Manual.

I am surprised that apparently this excellent website went ignored...

...since nobody mentioned it. I suggest everyone give it a look.

Jack, I took a look at the manual long time ago and re-read it yesterday. Very chilling like Kubark torture manual, like so many other things. The near total decline in morality and respect for law and life itself (other than the Oligarchs who protect their own friends, family - and their ill-gained plunder) is where we find ourselves now. We [uSA] are signers of numersous treaties that would make carring out anything in such a manual illegal - as well as internal laws on the books [no doubt secret signing statements by the Fuhrer have long ago negated that in fact]. We also engage in 'assassination' wholesale by bombings, state-sponsored terrorism, wars, sponsoring of death squads elsewhere and the occassional homebaked assassination....certainly JFK, MLK, RFK - maybe even 3.000 in 9-11. Mr. S likes to rant and rave that we are un-American for pointing the above truths out. I, and I think most on this site (at least the sane and humaine ones) condemn such asctions equally when done by any other nation...it just so happens that the USA now is leading the world in this and is the most powerful and influential nation on earth [sadly]. Morally, ethically, we are near the bottom of the barrel. I don't recognize a concept of un-American. I do recognize the concept of being moral and truthful and for peace, justice, law, equality - and those [like the current adminstration and the Beast that has America in its grip now] who abhor all those things - despite the PR spin [read propaganda cover-up] which Mr. S likely is a part of there in DC. Americans are afraid....Presidents get killed. Their neighbors get killed. Soldiers get killed fighting a trumped-up war. We are all spied upon and many feel they shouldn't speak too much nor loud or take out the wrong book from the library, etc. There is a general sense that if one opposes the Government too much in America today they may face loss of job, tax 'problems', chilling attention by the athourities, in extreme cases imprisonment or even in rare moments death. And there is just too much damn violence in America and a cult of violence coming largely from the example set at the top - as well as from the massive inequality of opportunity and wealth distribution in the USA and other ills of the society. When I lectured on JFK and other related things long ago persons made clear, when talking to them afterwards, many would also have liked to speak out more, but were afraid of the consequences. It is only worse now - much worse. Those of you who live outside of the USA don't really know the level of fear and insecurity, now inside the country and growing. America is still 'riding' on the momentum of its image at the end of WW2 and too few inside and out have failed to notice that while we may have defeated that evil system, we have also over the 60 intervening years come to follow all too much in their footsteps and are headed in that direction now. I know that sounds alarmist and to many not a valid analysis. I fear not. It will not look the same as it did then. It will look more like what gleam is in the eye of those in control in the USA today. See excellent book at

http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Fascism/...ism_BGross.html

Those that turn a blind eye to the assassination manual, the torure manual, the assassinations and torture going on now and those of the past, the wars only for control and profit, the dimunition of civil liberties and freedoms in the USA and elsewhere, the false-flag covert operations, the government manipulations and overthows, the cover-ups and lies, the imperialism, the growing militarism, the rise of a policestate and prisonsystem (largest in the world in number and %), the growing inequality, the theft of the nation - in fact of many nations, the rising tide of neo-fascism, currently centered [oh so sadly] in my own country [uSA] will, I think, pay the price for that lack of attention.

It is cliche', but also true that those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.....

The planet simply can not 'afford' where we are currently headed even one more time. My own country is at the brink of horrible things. Because we have never come to terms with the symptoms and evidence before us, over the last decades, keeps most citizens without the tools of analysis needed to see what is going on [the media and propaganda system also having a major effect here] -and then do what is needed to expose, correct and stop it. Our election system, long a failed one of two similar corporate-oligarch parties, is now not even functioning at all. The Congress is a rubber stamp of the best-money-can-buy prostitutes. The Judiciary packed and rigged all too much. The Military too big, too well funded, not under control - but too much in control, backed by the War-Profiteers, hungry for conquest and blood. The police are all over the streets, airports and everywhere in America armed-to-the-teeth and protecting the property and the system - not the people. I could go on. I will stop here. It is a very sad moment in history...

Mr. S represents quite well [if in a very crude fashion] a segment of the US mindset [my guess would be about 20% - another 20% can be fooled when needed to support parts of this agenda]. They may be the lunatic fringe in the eyes of many, but they are currently in power and not about to relinqish it without a fight IMO.

NB. Below are 14 characteristics of some past fascist governments. I'll leave it for the reader to see if anythings within seem resonant to where things are heading in any big superpower today.

The 14 characteristics of Fascism by Dr. Lawrence Britt http://www.rochester-citynews.com/gyrobase...?oid=oid%3A3136

Dr. Britt, a political scientist, studied the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile). He found the regimes all had 14 things in common, and he calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism. ]

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism -- Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights -- Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to 'look the other way' or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause -- The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military -- Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism -- The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and antigay legislation and national policy.

6. Controlled Mass Media -- Sometimes the media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or through sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in wartime, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security -- Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined -- Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected -- The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed -- Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts -- Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment -- Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses, and even forego civil liberties, in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption -- Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions, and who use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections -- Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against (or even the assassination of) opposition candidates, the use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and the manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

It is not too late to do something about it...but IMO getting very late in the day, indeed. I don't believe it would be correct to say this horrible fate has yet been completed today, but things are headed that way fast.

Not to belittle the work done by a political scientist with probably lots of letters after his name but is there much difference between what he sees as 14 characteristics of certain fascist governments and the infamous 'Protocols of the elders of Zion'.

It has always amused me or more precisely annoyed me that people argue over whether the Protocols story is authentic over and above whether the individual protocols themselves describe how things are or how far they've reached/descended in the world of governance.

Quite simply, the whole history of the world comes under the study of individual and group psychology, preferably using eyes and ears and throw away the books containing 500,000 words interspersed(?) with 2,000 words of useful information. There are no mysteries and no surprises in the world of what people want, individually or as a group, and how far/low they'll go to get it. I would suggest that mass control started with the pyramid building programme and has rarely if ever ceased. It's just the means of control that change. I also claim to know how they could have moved the pyramid stones with relative ease, but that'a another story...Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

As far as the CIA assassination manual is concerned. I read part of it, got bored, in a relative sense, with the detail and just felt saddened to be reminded in increasingly graphic detail of what my fellow human(?) kind will resort to under the states guidance.

Thanks for posting this Jack,

I like the idea of classifying assassinations into types.

According to their terminology,

JFK would have been Chase, not Guarded, and if LHO the

assassin, Safe, since he got away from the scene, and

then Lost, and Open-Terroristic.

I also like, "The essential part of assassination is the death of the subject."

"The specific technique employed will depend on a large number of variables,

but should be consitant on one point - death must be absolutly certain. The

attempt on Hitler's life failed because the conspiracy did not give this matter

proper attention."

Also, a brief outline and critical evaluation of historical assassinations would be instructive.

It is interesting they mention Trotsky, Hitler and Harding (Guarded, Safe, Secret),

but not McKinley (Guarded, Lost, Terrorist-fanatic).

I've previously noted the connections between the attempted assassination

and coup against Hitler and the JFK assassination.
