Afghanistan: Opium, the CIA and the Karzai Administration

Is US Triumph in Drug-Addicted War possible?
Afghanistan: Opium, the CIA and the Karzai Administration

by Peter Dale Scott | Focus | According to Peter Dale Scott, there is no point in deploring the expansion of drug production in Afghanistan and the heroin epidemic gripping great parts of the world. Conclusions must be drawn from the established facts: the Taliban eradicated poppy cultivation; NATO promoted it; drug money corrupted the Karzai government but it is especially inside U.S. institutions that drug corruption is rife. Therefore, the solution does not lie with Kabul but with Washington.

Musing on Misinformation & Morons.

The net is abuzz with a rumor claiming that the CIA is behind a Wikileaks mirror that was hosted at http://wikileaks.psytek.net.  This rumor lacked any real evidence, yet was reported by many in the hacker/hacktivist community as fact.

The rumor was started by a comment on Reddit.com. On Thursday, December 9th 2010 at 08:28 PM PST Reddit user isoteemu commented:

“I was going thru WikiLeaks mirrors list, and noticed a small oddity; http://wikileaks.psytek.net was on netblock which belonged Central Intelligence Agency. It has now changed, but 010-12-08 12:27:34 (EEST) was still registered for CIA.”

Most users replied with more baseless speculation, while the few users asking for real evidence were drowned out by a beautiful circle-jerk of ignorance.

Hank P. Albarelli Jr – CIA’s Denial of Protecting Nazis is Blatant Lie

From Voltairenet:

CIA’s Denial of Protecting Nazis is Blatant Lie (Part 1)

by Hank P. Albarelli Jr.*

Leaks or revelations are often more compelling because of what they don’t reveal. Through Operation Paperclip, the U.S. organized a monumental transfer of black technology by actively recruiting Nazi scientists guilty of war crimes for employment by U.S. intelligence. In his three-part investigation, author H. P. Albarelli dredges up the part that was omitted from the recently-outed official report: the U.S. pointedly chose ’fervent’ Nazi scientists with experience in chemical, biological and radioactive warfare to become the architects of the CIA’s darkest military experiments involving human guinea pigs, as was the case in Nazi Germany.

On 11 November 1954, thirty-nine of the German-born scientists who entered the United States through Project Paperclip were sworn in as U.S. citizens. Military Intelligence “cleansed” the files of Nazi references. By 1955, more than 760 German scientists had been granted citizenship in the U.S. and given prominent positions in the American scientific community. Many had been longtime members of the Nazi party and the Gestapo, had conducted experiments on humans at concentration camps, had used slave labor, and had committed other war crimes.

Andrew Kreig – DOJ Probe of CIA Torture Evidence: Another Whitewash?

From News From Underground:

DOJ Probe of CIA Torture Evidence: Another Whitewash?

by Andrew Kreig

Here’s why the Justice Department’s halt to its probe of CIA obstruction of justice involving torture looks like another whitewash.

The DOJ compromised its probe from the beginning in 2008 by assigning it to Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham, whom courts have twice implicated in suppressing evidence. In one of those cases, a federal judge rebuked him also for what she described as “severe misconduct” during cross-examination.
