  • Understanding The Secret Team
  • The National Security Act of 1947
  • President Truman abolished the OSS, created the National Intelligence Group
  • A new branch of the service: the Air Force, a single Department of Defense
  • Intelligence ... wasn't coordinated, new ways of gathering intelligence
  • CIA is created to coordinate the intelligence of the rest of the government
  • An atom bomb ... has no real value until it's been delivered
  • We were made a defensive nation by the Department of Defense
  • OSS members, well-trained in covert work, came into CIA
  • OPC (Office of Policy Coordination), was to preserve certain assets
  • The creation of the National Security Council
  • President, Vice-President, Secretaries of State and Defense, no others
  • Directive "10-slant-2" (10/2) recognized ... covert action
  • In 1948, the Allen Dulles, William Jackson, Mathias Correa Report
  • Dulles ... saw that report as, you might say, his own Mein Kampf
  • The single primary character of the CIA is Allen Dulles
  • There is no law that says it is a covert operations agency
  • President Truman wrote, greatest mistake, to create the CIA
  • Shifting NSC oversight from directing to approving plans
  • OCB was the Operations Coordinating Board, a part of NSC
  • OPC was the residual OSS organization, from World War II
  • Dulles was able to circumvent the law, to have clandestine capability
  • NSC found itself, approving reactive covert operations
  • Gulf of Tonkin, North Vietnamese, had been provoked, they did not initiate
  • Deputy Director Plans, just our euphemism for covert operations
  • His brother, Secretary of State, the dominant vote in the NSC
  • Only one, NSC had directed the CIA to involve itself in Tibet
  • The intelligence community, was not homogenous
  • Futile to try to enforce the law, on either Defense or CIA or State

  • We can still go on the offense, we are doing it economically
  • Evolution of warfare, ended with the explosion of the hydrogen bomb
  • CIA could promote, counterinsurgency or covert operations
  • We had to create this Manichaean devil so we created Communism
  • Then you can justify having a navy, air force, and an enormous army
  • I was, "to provide military support of clandestine operations of the CIA"
  • National Security Council Directive #5412 of March 15, 1954
  • Dulles said, "I want an office that has access to a system in the Pentagon"
  • That agency might not even know that employee was our man
  • Colonel Lansdale, a full colonel in the Air Force, that was his cover story
  • A member of the office of the Secretary of Defense, his home is really CIA
  • We bought hundreds of airplanes for the CIA, technically for the Air Force
  • Millions and millions of dollars, never went through Air Force procurement
  • Units in the Army that were supporting CIA, there were 605
  • A lot of these people worked right up into the White House
  • Eisenhower, did not want the CIA to create a capability that was on-going
  • The secret of covert operations is the control of money
  • Reimbursement is very important, it keeps bills from appearing in public
  • Reimbursement, can be used, without explaining that it was for salaries

  • Generals Lemnitzer and Shoup, never knew they were part of a covert operation
  • "I want 2,008 missiles", you have to have the authority
  • CIA, used an Air Force unit, without raising any eyebrows at all
  • All covert operations require foreign alliances
  • The Bay of Pig, thirteen hundred troops, is not covert
  • They didn't ask for airplanes, rifles, trucks, they already had all that
  • President Eisenhower never, never authorized an invasion of Cuba
  • The Agency told us, that their target would be an invasion of Cuba
  • The plan was to wipe out all Castro's combat aircraft
  • To control the CIA we created an organization called the NSC
  • "I don't need to know about that, Colonel. What I don't know ..."
  • To really understand CIA, the world is all just one big chess board

  • Deception is an extremely important function, rarely talked about
  • The shift from Eisenhower to Kennedy, was most unexpected

  • This Taylor/Burke/Dulles/Kennedy report, was NSAM No. 55, 56, and 57
  • "You are my advisor in peacetime as you would be in wartime"
  • Not going to depend on Allen Dulles and the CIA
  • In fact it may have caused a major move toward that deadly decision

  • Maxwell Taylor was not the right man to do that.
  • Kennedy's years of Congressional experience, paid off in a big way for him
  • Member of the House and of the Senate, had grown up in the Court of St. James

  • People in Iran who are in power have access to the people that we've trained
  • Allende was elected by the people and then he was killed by Pinochet
  • The Kennedy administration began to stop some of these activities
  • These activities don't take place within the CIA alone, this is the Secret Team
  • "All of a sudden, people from the Pentagon are calling me buying sugar stock"
  • Leave room for the U.S. government to plausibly disclaim its role
  • They asked me for 42,000 rifles, that was not covert
  • What you are really doing is denying the sovereignty of another nation
  • Everyone except the American people knew ... about these things
  • We live in a one-world financial communications sphere
  • In the United States, we have had the advantage in economic power
  • What we're going to do ... is move into the energy and food eras
  • The big war will be over the energy supplies, transport and food supplies

  • Letter "found" in the Paines' garage
  • In 1999, Russian President Boris Yeltsin handed some 80 files to Bill Clinton pertaining to Oswald
  • It included a memo from the Russian Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin who saw the letter as a provocation to frame Russia
  • "One gets the definite impression that the letter was concocted by those who, judging from everything,
    are involved in the president’s assassination. It is possible that Oswald himself wrote the letter as it was
    dictated to him, in return for some promises, and then, as we know, he was simply bumped off after his
    usefulness had ended"
    - wrote Anatoly Dobrynin
  • The letter has one attribute that can play an important role, actually proving who some of the conspirators were
  • It talks about Oswald's Mexico trip prior to the assassination when very few would have known about it
  • And if the Mexico City trip never happened, who would have known about the cover story?

  • All modern technology including "renewable" energy depends on the non-renewable resources that make it possible
  • The only "renewable" materials consumed in PV production are obtained by deforestation - for wood chips,
    and by burning vast areas of tropical rainforest for charcoal used as a source of carbon for silicon smelters
  • Both media and journal claims that solar photovoltaic (PV) can somehow "replace fossil fuels" have not addressed
    the “non-renewable reality” of all the global manufacturing supply chains necessary for the mining, manufacturing,
    and distribution of PV power systems

  • Other analysts claim ICT could consume 51% of total global electricity and emit upto 23% of greenhouse gases by 2030
  • Smartphones' CO2 emissions will grow from 4% of total global emissions in 2010 to 11% by 2020
