The CIA's History of Deception

By Melvin A. Goodman

“Let me be clear about this,” CIA director Leon Panetta told his troops last week, “it was not CIA policy or practice to mislead Congress. That is against our laws and our values.”

Can somebody please tell me how Leon Panetta KNOWS - with certainty - that the CIA never lied to Nancy Pelosi?

Was Panetta there in the CIA at the time? According to my calendar, he wasn't.

Does Panetta even know - with certainty - WHAT the CIA told Pelosi - and what they didn't?

Face it Leon - YOU and I know with the same certainty - ZIP - What Was Said To Whom, By Whom, About What, Where It Was Said And When It Was Said.

I would love to see Consortium News set up a bigger forum using phpBB type software.

I use forum software to host my engineering design portfolio. I use Dreamhost.com for the web host - costs about $100 a year.

I'm pretty sure Robert Parry has enough readers to make for a solid forum.

The problem with a forum is SPAM - I got about 20,000 porn spam postings in a 2 month period, until I locked down permissions.

It seems to me that if the professionals in the IC have any self respect left, they would police their own community and clean the political hacks out of their ranks.

Once again we see the rabid Repocons attacking instead of thinking. They have created an issue, by attacking Pelosi and even calling for her impeachment, that brings out counter arguments that make the CIA, they say they are protecting, look far worse than if they, the Repos, had just kept their collective mouths shut.

Thank you Repocons for creating a situation that allows truth speakers to educate the next wave of new voters.

the cia is in the buisness of lies, deception and propaganda. that is what they do. to say that they do not, is another bald faced lie. from viet nam, iran contra and many other so called issues of "national security" to the the present, we have been continually lied to. BUSH I was the worst covering up for nixon. panetta should know better.
