  • Imperialism Is NOT Capitalism

    Statists and Keynesian economists point to class disparities and lack of social justice as an example of why Laissez-Faire/Austrian economic policies do not work. They point to the impoverished, both in the developing world and in the United States, as examples of victims of greedy, ruthless capitalism. While these people are righteously pointing at a …

  • Inside Romania’s Secret CIA Prison

    Just a conspiracy theory, right?

  • CIA Doublecross?

    Ahmed Wali Karzai was not a nice guy. Known as one of the big leaders in the Afgani opium trade, he obviously had some enemies. Combine that with his brother, Hamid Karzai, being the American puppet leader of Afghanistan, and no one should be surprise that he was assassinated. However, despite the awesome movie his …

  • “Wicked Problem”

    Last semester I took a history course on the CIA in the third world. One of the problems presented by the professor concerning the overall intel apparatus of the United States was that there was not a “grand master” intelligence head. The head of the CIA was originally going to be that spearhead, organizing and …

  • Gitmo Shutdown = More Drone Attacks

    According to this administration’s math, shutting down Gitmo will mean more drone attacks. Get ready for more “Shock and Awe” people! The ever peace-loving White House is planning to force the CIA and Pentagon to increase  more drone attacks in Pakistan and around the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. How realistic is it? Apparently, not so much. Since 9/11, …

  • CIA Sees Obama as a Key Tool in Continuing NATO War

    Despite an MSM blackout and dissapointing recent gains for the war’s popularity, about half of Americans oppose the “good war” in Afghanistan. Though this certainly isn’t negligible opposition, overseas it’s a different story. Most people in most NATO countries were antiwar from the start.  Pro-peace sentiment overseas, even in traditional US allies like the UK,  continues to …

  • Ron Paul and Glenn Beck on the CIA and Foreign Policy

    People have been making a huge deal of Ron Paul’s comments made at the recent C4L regional conference. I’m not sure why this is newsworthy since the congressman was very open about his stance on the CIA throughout his presidential campaign. Indeed, it’s refreshing to hear respectful discussion on such an important issue.

  • The implications of the warfare state — should we fail to resist it.

    The state’s ability to get its “subjects” to go along with the killing operation is perhaps its most remarkable accomplishment. Yes, those in-the-know secular elites realize exactly what they’re doing, but it’s truly an amazing feat how they get a largely Christian populace to go along with what at best can be described an “ends-justify-the-means” …

  • Jordanian “Triple Agent” Responsible For Killing CIA Members In Afghanistan

    It is evident that Jordanian Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi was responsible for killing the 7 CIA agents in Afghanistan, along with a Jordanian agent. Al Balawi was also an aspiring doctor who apparently worked at a clinic in a Palestinian refugee camp. He was also an open Al Qaida sympathizer who started leaning towards radical ideas …

  • The New Scandal Brewing

    When the news of the White House/NSA wiretapping scandal hit the front pages, there was a public backlash. Pundits’ heads spun, lawsuits were filed, and congressional hearings were scheduled. When Alberto Gonzalez testified he told us that the programs had ended and gave us his word that no new programs would be authorized without FISA …
