Guest submission by Richard Cook, Challenger disaster whistleblower
Tucker Carlson, whose nightly show on Fox News, “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, is the most-watched US TV news show, has changed history with his feature broadcast last night on “‘The CIA Was Involved in the Assassination of President Kennedy,’ Top Source Tells Tucker Carlson.”
This is the first time a mainstream media news program has stated this formerly unthinkable and unmentionable fact that millions of people have already known for decades, yet one that the CIA has successfully choked off a meaningful discussion about until now.
The genie is truly out of the bottle. Of course there are hundreds of other suspected CIA crimes we now might be able to discuss openly as well. Let’s include 9/11 in the mix, along with CIA terror programs in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places going back to the infamous Vietnam Phoenix program. And let’s lift the lid on CIA drug dealing as exposed by the late journalist Gary Webb and other sources over the past fifty years. Not to mention MKULTRA that flooded college campuses with LSD in the 60s and 70s and Operation Mockingbird, by which the CIA controls–and throttles–the mainstream media with its resident censors. We can also throw in the CIA’s control of foreign governments by bribes and assassinations as well.
The list goes on and on. But one thing is clear. It is now time to revive past proposals to abolish the CIA altogether made by Senators Bernie Sanders, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and others.
I think I know who Tucker Carlson’s source was–a former CIA Director–but cannot name that person without further confirmation. But I am certain that the source was absolutely authentic. I am also not surprised that Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump’s CIA Director, refused to appear on Carlson’s show, because he was one of the worst ever, ramping up the covert CIA assassination program in Afghanistan and declaring before a public audience his delight at the ease with which his minions at the CIA “lie, cheat, and steal” with impunity. Pompeo also seems to have the gall to have expressed interest in actually running for president himself. With Pompeo at the helm, we could expect an even worse reign of terror.
We also need to focus on the role of the CIA in the current war in Ukraine. The 2014 Maidan coup, when the elected government was overthrown in Ukraine and replaced with a Neonazi cabal, was a CIA project. A key player was the CIA cutout, the National Endowment for Democracy, which has been doing the CIA’s dirty work since the mid-1980s with “color revolutions,” etc., aided by dirty money from the likes of George Soros and State Department Neocons like Victoria Nuland.
The war in Ukraine is above all a CIA project, aimed at destabilizing Europe, Russia, and the world. So is the deindustrialization of Germany, another CIA enterprise.
It all has to stop–now. Maybe Tucker Carlson’s revelations can finally get the ball rolling before the CIA succeeds in what seems to be its dearest wish of blowing up the entire world.
