Only in America, land of the free, home of the Back Room Boys. Could this be Bush’s Goering? I couldn’t fabricate a best seller with all of the twists, turns, and creepy background plots; no one would believe it! Porter Goss stepped down as CIA Director on Friday, suddenly and without explanation. John Negroponte supposedly steps in to the post, even with his known support of the Honduran Death Squads under his watch as Ambassador of that country. Some will say that as National Director of Intelligence, this makes sense, as he was already vetted and approved for that job – a job which, in fact, was superior to the new CIA Directorship he may be taking on today. So why step down a notch?
Let’s start by filling in a few of the blanks. Porter Goss was hired by GW two years ago with an agenda to ferret out the bad and make corrections, in particular with the clandestine operations. By all accounts, except for a few veteran officers of the Agency with hurt feelings over the political snubbing that a regime change always brings, he has been doing an outstanding job of creating a new framework and setting up new ideals and agendas to achieve this. No one has or will argue that last statement. No one of course, except Bill O’Reilly and the other talking puppets of the GOP. These guys have already started a feeding frenzy to slant this as a “bad boy, go to your room” adventure on the part of Goss.
A little background on John Demitri Negroponte from Wikipedia:
He is considered a controversial figure by some because of his involvement in the covert funding of the Contras and the cover up of human rights abuses carried out by CIA-trained operatives in Honduras in the 1980s. According to The New York Times, Negroponte carried out “the covert strategy of the Reagan administration to crush the Sandinista government in Nicaragua.”, and is a career diplomat currently serving as Director of National Intelligence for the United States.
Negroponte has served in one government post or another since graduating Yale in 1960. This is the same Yale GW and GWH Bush attended, with a membership in the same Skull and Bones secret society that father and son belong to; the same secret society that is purported to cull and groom those wealthy and connected students at an early age to groom into our nation’s leaders. This is a society with an alumni list that reads like a who’s who in American power structure: Names like Taft, Weyerhaeuser, Goodyear, Sloan, Rockefeller. Prescott Sheldon Bush, GW’s grandfather, sat on the Union Banking Corp. board of Directors in 1932, along with six other Skull and Bones members, two of which were German Nazis, H.J. Kouwenhoven, and Johann Groninger. This group led the banking interests that financed Adolf Hitler & the USSR. Please do not take my word for it; read for yourself. The Union Banking Corp. was founded by George Herbert Walker, GW’s great grandfather, who was a, you guessed it, Skull and Bones member.
I promise you, I couldn’t fabricate stuff this intriguing if I tried. Now before I go any further, I want to ask all you hardcore GOP believers to take note of my reference links, such as Wikipedia, Fox News, etc. I did not use Left Wing, biased hyperconscious rags, just simple ordinary, and credible reference points. That being said, I will draw a few conclusions, and yes, steer my perceptions and anticipations; so argue, comment, and rant if you will, but come with your facts straight. I did.
Back to my question: So why step down a notch? Is it possible that Bush needs a shepherd to steer a small part of the flock on a path to watch the other shepherds? Could it be that by stepping down a notch, Negroponte is actually stepping up three notches? Why not? Goering did it when Hitler needed him to. Having been the Reichstag parliament’s president, he stepped back to be a General, and later, Wikipedia notes,
He became Commander-in-Chief of Forschungsamt (“FA”), the Nazi underground monitoring services for telephone and radio communications. This was connected to SS, SD and Abwehr intelligence services.
Sounds like CIA to me, and you? Goering headed the Daddy of all watchdog intelligence groups in the Nazi regime, and according to Wikipedia, became:
“…the highest figure in the Nazi Hierarchy who had authorized on paper the ‘final solution of the Jewish Question’, when he issued a memo to SS Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich to organize the practical details,” (which culminated in the Wannsee Conference). He wrote, “submit to me as soon as possible a general plan of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying out the desired final solution of the Jewish question.” It is almost certain however that Hitler issued a verbal order to Göring in the fall of 1941 to this effect.”
He later made this infamous statement at the Nuremberg trials that rings a little too chillingly close to home and the current war we are in now:
Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.
I am by no means the first writer to highlight the so-called Bush/ Nazi comparisons, yet, to date, this is one of the most striking developments. Is Negroponte Bush’s Goering? Do we need to keep a close eye on these developments or is this just a very well scripted piece of fiction on my part? You decide; I just place it on the table for you. Either way, as Arsenio Hall used to say, “one of those things that make you go ‘hmmmm’?”
And if General Hayden gets it instead, then the mystery only deepens. Who is leading whom and what better way to be in control of all, than to be truly in control of the watch and the dog?
