From 9/11 to Ukraine – The Dystopian Script Foretold

The-Dystopian-Script-Foretold1

The overwhelming evidence that the events of 9/11 could have in no way been perpetrated without inside complicity is irrefutable. Whether the impossibility of those two massively over-designed structures being pulverized and another dropped into its own footprint, or the abject lack of response by the most defended airspace in the world, the events of that day had to have been at least aided and guided, if not co-perpetrated, by inside, complicit forces.

The least bit of open minded investigation will lead anyone to that conclusion.

The only alternative is to blindly trust the staged media narrative, carefully reinforced by a belated congressional report that clearly ignored important evidence – another government report based on scant clues, planned conjecture, and a lot of falsified, deleted and diluted information.

What’s remarkable, and may explain much of the hysteria that accompanied those events, is that all of this was carefully performed after many years of building the demonization of an extremist Muslim uprising, an external enemy of a vague yet suddenly appearing world threatening nature. The perfect target for suspicion in any ensuing violent event.

And the public bought and swallowed the whole enchilada.

Laying the Groundwork

When you trace the pattern, this run up of so-called terrorist events then begs many questions: Was the attack on the USS Cole in 2000, immediately attributed to al Qaida, really done by 2 local Arab youth in a tiny boat causing an explosion that blew out the hull of a major naval vessel and killing 17? Or is there another explanation? The 4/11 London bombings is another scenario that doesn’t hold a drop of water. Going even further back, was the horrific 1983 blasting of the US barracks in Lebanon really carried out by radical Muslim “insurgents”? Or were the various embassy bombings similar “attacks”, or were they inside jobs? The list of likely false flags over the years is long.

The prime example is the stage-setting 1993 bombing of the WTC, proven to be set up and executed by the FBI and their patsies, yet the image in the public mind was virtually set in stone: Muslim terrorists are capable of infiltrating NYC and bombing a major landmark.

If you need an even earlier precedent, the admitted “insider” bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946 paving the way for regional and otherwise false flag terrorism has been openly boasted of by complicit Zionists and should serve as a very strong clue as to just what’s behind this staging of an invasion of the middle east. In fact, you’ll find Israel’s handiwork throughout these false flag events, culminating in their deep involvement in 9/11.

After all, cui bono? Who benefits?

The narrative was laid down for years preparing Americans and much of the world to believe there were Muslim terrorists afoot, and that these terrorists were eventually attached to a then newly arisen figure named Osama bin Laden and another new phenomenon called “al Qaida”. When the events of 9/11 took place the mainstream media was blaming this same Osama bin Laden and al Qaida within minutes of the towers coming down, following the narrative laid down for the years preceding.

An easy sell at that point.

Odd that this same Osama just happened to be from the same mega wealthy Saudi family very close to the Bushes and whose family business was subsequently contracted to build the many US bases in the Mideast region. A renegade son? Or a staged trade-off of some sort. Something to ponder amongst the plethora of other abnormalities. But does the mainstain news even mention this or anything else contrary to the party line?

On to Afghanistan and the Russia Connection

It was claimed bin Laden was masterminding 9/11 while hiding out in a cave deep in the mountains of Afghanistan, a country then run by the Taliban, a by product of the Mujahadeen, an inserted insurgency trained by the US and its CIA to bait and counter the Russians many years prior. Al Qaida literally means “the base”, and is said to be the name of the database of trained insurgents placed there by the CIA. There is much to substantiate this.

Some Historical Perspective

From the redstate.com article: How Zbigniew Brzezinski Created the Taliban.

“US aid to the armed Mujahadeen Islamic insurgency started six months before the Soviets invaded Afghanistan with the intention of making it more likely for the USSR to attack Afghanistan to support its puppet government. Brzezinski admitted as much in a 1998 interview:

“According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Soviets into the Afghan trap…. The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter “We now have the opportunity of giving to the Soviet Union its Vietnam War.”

“Brzezinski got his wish, and once the Soviets invaded he sprung into action.

“We immediately launched a twofold process when we heard that the Soviets had entered Afghanistan. The first involved direct reactions and sanctions focused on the Soviet Union, and both the State Department and the National Security Council prepared long lists of sanctions to be adopted, of steps to be taken to increase the international costs to the Soviet Union of their actions. And the second course of action led to my going to Pakistan a month or so after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, for the purpose of coordinating with the Pakistanis a joint response, the purpose of which would be to make the Soviets bleed for as much and as long as is possible; and we engaged in that effort in a collaborative sense with the Saudis, the Egyptians, the British, the Chinese, and we started providing weapons to the Mujaheddin, from various sources again – for example, some Soviet arms from the Egyptians and the Chinese. We even got Soviet arms from the Czechoslovak communist government, since it was obviously susceptible to material incentives; and at some point we started buying arms for the Mujaheddin from the Soviet army in Afghanistan, because that army was increasingly corrupt.”

“In that same 1998 interview referred to above, Brzezinski recognized that his policies brought about the Taliban and said it was worth it.”

“What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?”

9/11 and the March Through Eurasia Were Planned and Staged in Plain Sight

Perhaps the most obvious and damning evidence is in these planners’ and own words. Oddly enough, and perhaps part of the dynamic in some macabre way, these same perpetrators lay out their plans for all to see. Globalist advisor to 5 US Presidents (including Obama) Zbigniew Brzezinski has written whole books on the subject. One in particular is called “The Grand Chessboard” where he lays out the plan for global hegemony, even listing those countries that need to be subjugated as the imperialists surround the powers of Russia and China.

Interestingly, they include not just the Middle Eastern countries we’ve already seen toppled, but he particularly and ultimately targets the strategic Eurasian region surrounding Russia, including Ukraine. Note the reference to Pearl Harbor. The book was written in 1997.

“The last decade of the twentieth century has witnessed a tectonic shift in world affairs. For the first time ever, a non-Eurasian power has emerged not only as a key arbiter of Eurasian power relations but also as the world’s paramount power. The defeat and collapse of the Soviet Union was the final step in the rapid ascendance of a Western Hemisphere power, the United States, as the sole and, indeed, the first truly global power) (p. xiii)

“But in the meantime, it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus of also challenging America. The formulation of a comprehensive and integrated Eurasian geostrategy is therefore the purpose of this book. (p. xiv)

“The attitude of the American public toward the external projection of American power has been much more ambivalent. The public supported America’s engagement in World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. (pp 24-5)

“For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia. Now a non-Eurasian power is preeminent in Eurasia — and America’s global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained. (p.30)

The Globalist Attitude Toward Democratic Peoples and How to Herd Them:

Zbigniew Brzezinski continues…

“It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America’s power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is, defense spending) and the human sacrifice (casualties, even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.” (p.35)

“Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multi-cultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat.” (p. 211)

Zbigniew on the Ultimate Objective, Encircling Russia on the Eurasian Front:

“Two basic steps are thus required: first, to identify the geostrategically dynamic Eurasian states that have the power to cause a potentially important shift in the international distribution of power and to decipher the central external goals of their respective political elites and the likely consequences of their seeking to attain them; second, to formulate specific U.S. policies to offset, co-opt, and/or control the above.” (p. 40) [emphasis mine]

“To put it in a terminology that harkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together.” (p.40)

“Henceforth, the United States may have to determine how to cope with regional coalitions that seek to push America out of Eurasia, thereby threatening America’s status as a global power.” (p.55) (Source)

All being blatantly fulfilled before our eyes.

War becomes perpetual when it is used as a rationale for peace (1)

The Coup de Grâce – Zionist PNAC Neocons Justify and Execute the Plan

Another such blatant example was the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) report published by a neo-conservative think tank just prior to 9/11. This is now a very famous document that will become more difficult to retrieve as time goes on, but in this report they literally outline a strategy for global hegemony. Their predicament, however, was getting the backing of a fully convinced US populace as well as the compliance of world opinion.

Here’s a short summary of some of the PNAC plans and their obvious intentions that 9/11 “just happened” to catalyze:

A subsequent PNAC plan entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces and Resources for a New Century,” reveals that the current members of Bush’s cabinet had already planned, before the 2000 presidential election, to take military control of the Gulf region whether Saddam Hussein is in power or not…

The 90-page PNAC document from September 2000 says: “The United States has for decades sought to play a more permanent role in Gulf regional security. While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein…

“Even should Saddam pass from the scene,” the plan says U.S. military bases in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will remain, despite domestic opposition in the Gulf states to the permanent stationing of U.S. troops. Iran, it says, “may well prove as large a threat to U.S. interests as Iraq has…

A “core mission” for the transformed U.S. military is to “fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars,” according to the PNAC…

The strategic “transformation” of the U.S. military into an imperialistic force of global domination would require a huge increase in defense spending to “a minimum level of 3.5 to 3.8 percent of gross domestic product, adding $15 billion to $20 billion to total defense spending annually,” the PNAC plan said…

“The process of transformation,” the plan said, “is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event-like a new Pearl Harbor”…

American Free Press asked Christopher Maletz, assistant director of the PNAC about what was meant by the need for “a new Pearl Harbor”. “They needed more money to up the defense budget for raises, new arms, and future capabilities,” Maletz said. “Without some disaster or catastrophic event” neither the politicians nor the military would have approved, Maletz said.

The “new Pearl Harbor,” in the form of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, provided the necessary catalyst to put the global war plan into effect. Congress quickly allocated $40 billion to fund the “war on terrorism” shortly after 9-11. (Source – Rense.com)

[If this isn’t obvious enough, see Gen. Wesley Clark’s admission of what he was told at the Pentagon about the war plan. If you haven’t seen it, it’s time you did.]

Now They Have Their Money and Program, It’s Time to Crack Down

The populace now has a new common threat, this time the carefully fabricated al Qaida “demons” who “could strike anywhere”, so we need surveillance, tighter controls, bigger and stronger and more militarized government.

And here’s the cherry on the cake; how this current surveillance state and “technotronic era” was predicted, i.e. pre-planned, and why it’s in place. Using the excuse of their same manufactured terrorists to gain public backing and money for their plan, they now turn their attention inward to subdue this free-thinking populace, according to their stated strategy.

Remember Brzezinski’s words:

“It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America’s power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy.”

As telling as anything can be. But how to take care of this “too democratic” situation?

Techno-Suppression

While the following was written over 40 years ago, Huxley’s pharmaceutical control forecast “Brave New World” was written almost 70 years ago. These are long-term planners we’re talking about.

Add the ongoing geo-engineering programs, GMOs, tainted water and food, trans-humanism, etc. to this electro-magnetic warfare well under way and we start to get the true picture of their massive efforts to control the world’s population.

Here again from Brzezinski, from his 1970 book “Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era”:

“The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values [like liberty and democracy – ed.] Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.

“In the technetronic society the trend would seem to be towards the aggregation of the individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason.”

“This regionalization is in keeping with the Tri-Lateral Plan which calls for a gradual convergence of East and West, ultimately leading toward the goal of one world government. National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept.”  — Zbignew Brzezinski, as National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter.

“Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J.F. MacDonald, a specialist in problems of warfare, says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth … in this way one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period”

” … no matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages, to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades.”

– Zbiniew Brzezinski 25 years ago (source)

This Isn’t New – And Why

Manipulating events to bring about the whims of controlling forces and the subjugation of humanity has been going on for centuries, if not millennia. From the sinking of the Lucitania to the Reichstag fire to Pearl Harbor, major events were staged to achieve desired results, either war or tighter societal controls…or both. And whether it’s the Oklahoma City or Boston bombing, or the 9/11 watershed event, the facts never add up.

But the desired results always do.

There is now in place a “powerful and aggressive” common enemy. It’s not just a time for war, but easily justified surveillance, tighter controls, and bigger and stronger militarized government at home. That’s their “story”.

In reality, this clearly shows the underbelly and true intention of the beast: full spectrum dominance.

Conclusion

Sadly but not unintentionally, this information is not circulated where it needs to be. Without knowing the Truth, people have either bought into the mainstream narrative, or if they are catching on they are just too lazy to say or do anything about this fascist totalitarian takeover. Or perhaps this is due to fear, or thinking they can’t make a difference.

How wrong they are!

May this spur you on to questioning and personal activation, sharing pertinent information wherever you can and disconnecting with this sick, manipulated matrix.

That the PTB need, demand and manipulate our complicity, shows the power of our non-complicity.

Again, the global architect Brzezinski:

Brzezinski’s call of warning to the “global political awakening” has only intensified in recent years. Last year during a speech in Poland, Brzezinski noted that it has become “increasingly difficult to suppress” and control the “persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples.” Brzezinski also blamed the accessibility of “radio, television and the Internet” for the “universal awakening of mass political consciousness.” (source)

We are many, and we are awakening. And that’s what they fear.

Keep the fires of awakening burning brightly.

Keep searching, and shoring up your knowledge. It leads to freedom, and meaningful activation.

It’s time to take the battle to them.

Love, Zen

UFOs: Is Out Of Sight Really Out Of Mind?

It is a fraud for the U.S. government to pretend that it is not interested in UFOs. In fact, it has been a matter of high and probably pre-eminent interest for decades.” –Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defense

Eppur si muove is an Italian phrase meaning “And yet it moves,” famously uttered by the Italian mathematician, physicist and philosopher Galileo Galilei after being forced to recant in 1633 before the Inquisition, his belief that the Earth moves around the Sun. Galileo asked the priests during his trial to look through the telescope, but they refused, because they knew they would see something that they did not want to accept. It would seem the same is true with the UFO phenomenon today.

We can offer a definition of UFOs that you may find useful when you study the subject: A UFO is the reported sighting of an object or light seen in the sky or on land, whose appearance, trajectory, actions, motions, lights, and colors do not have a logical, conventional, or natural explanation, and which cannot be explained, not only by the original witness, but by scientists or technical experts who try to make a common sense identification after examining the evidence. UFOlogists and private UFO organizations are found throughout the United States.

Since Biblical times humans have witnessed and recorded strange manifestations in the sky and speculated on the possibilities of visitors from another world. Today, the airline pilots of the world, from the skies of California to the fields of Kansas to the rice patties of the Orient, have regularly and persistently reported sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects, which we have named flying saucers. UFOs are real if you read the case reports from ordinary citizens and thousands of flight and military personnel. There are 12,000+ case files that have been reported to the U.S. Air Force from 1947 to 1968; of these, 701 are still classified as true unknowns.

While ET observation and interaction with Earth is probably an ancient phenomenon, as opposed to a purely modern occurrence, the marked increase in activity coinciding with World War II and the dawning of the “nuclear age” indicates that ETs are quite concerned about this transitional stage of human social evolution. They are particularly worried about human nuclear weapon technology and its potential for worldwide destruction, and possibly for its potential threat to ETs, although this is minimal. Some benevolent ET beings are greatly interested in our peaceful transition to a world society, international peace, and the establishment of a just, effective and representative world government.

ET technology is strictly guarded by both ETs and human governmental agencies because of its potential for military applications which would greatly threaten world security. It is imperative to the benevolent ETs that this technology not gain significant human applications until such a time as the Earth attains international peace and an effective world government free from corruption.

The U.S. government, at least at the level of a highly compartmentalized above top secret group, has known about the reality of UFOs and their occupants since at least 1947. A strict secrecy and a worldwide cover-up of these facts has been maintained because there is a fear of public panic and social disruption if this information is known, reminiscent of the hysteria caused in 1938 when Orson Wells broadcast a phony alien invasion story. Of course there are major security issues surrounding possible military and technology applications of ET hardware, especially in the setting during the last quarter of the century of a world beset with Cold War tensions and competing interests.

MOST PEOPLE ARE TRUE BELIEVERS

According to a report by the United Nations, since 1947 over 150 million people have been witnesses to UFO sightings throughout the world. More than 20,000 of those have been documented landings. Even if we can discount 90% as misperceptions or hoaxes, that leaves far too many credible events documented many times over by high-ranking government and military officials. Consider also the careful research of countless engineers and scientists who say the evidence is irrefutable and who logically  attribute to our alien counterparts the same kind of careful, sophisticated, efficient, high-tech exploration, especially those who likely are far more advanced than we. In addition, the kinds of contacts reported and objects sighted range from little floating orbs the size of a baseball to giant lighted spaceships bigger than an aircraft carrier. So, there are countless manifestations of alien activity in addition to the more common flying discs.

At the beginning of the 21st century, the overwhelming majority of Americans reported they believed that UFOs are real, and that these crafts are most likely guided by intelligent beings from other worlds or dimensions. A Roper poll conducted in the USA reported that 70% of the population believes that the government is not telling the public everything it knows about UFOs and extraterrestrials. One in 12 Americans claim to have personally seen a UFO. And this belief is formulated with no prompting whatsoever by the U.S. government. Are that many of us unbalnced to believe this? Is this the greatest mythology of all time stirring within us? Or is this an awareness of a collective unconscious memory surfacing?

To claim, as some people still do, that there is no evidence suggestive of intelligent extraterrestrial life visiting our planet simply belies the facts. The deniers include the many branches of the U.S. military, media, and government-funded science programs such as NASA and FERMI Labs. UFO sightings are global in nature, especially since there are too many hard sensor data-points to ignore, plus millions of eyewitnesses. It is only through ignorance or pomposity that one can say no evidence exists.

The central column holds the secondary windings of this very large Tesla Coil device. The base of the vehicle is about 7.3 meters in diameter and is made up of 48 individual asymmetric plate capacitor sections, each having eight plates. By varying the amount of electricity pulsed at each section from the central column, and exploiting the Biefield Brown Effect, maneuvering control can be achieved.This is a cutaway illustration of the backward engineered “Alien Reproduction Vehicle,” or “Fluxliner,” as it is sometimes called.

By varying the amount of electricity pulsed at each section from the central column, and exploiting the Biefield Brown Effect, maneuvering control can be achieved.

The mainstream scientific community also remains uninterested in and scornfully dismissive of the question of the reality of UFOs, or the possibility of intelligent extraterrestrial life visiting Earth. This is in spite of scientists and astronomers discovering billions of new, potentially inhabitable, planets and never before seen solar systems; documenting new exotic life forms on Earth that thrive in extreme environments previously thought to be uninhabitable; and uncover tantalizing hints of life on at least 10 planetary bodies within our own solar system. Yet, for reasons which we shall attempt to resolve, mainstream scientists continue to mock and deride those who take the phenomenon of UFOs seriously. Contrary to popular accounts in the mainstream media and many scholarly articles on UFOs, the phenomenon is frequently reported by scientists, military personnel, police officers, as well as commercial and private airplane pilots. There have been literally millions of sightings in over a hundred countries around the world. Jimmy Carter claims to have seen a UFO before he became president.

Also contrary to popular belief, UFO reports are not limited to rural areas or confined to the United States. The phenomenon has been reported in about 150 nations and over major metropolitan areas in the U.S., the U.K., the former U.S.S.R., Germany, France, Spain, all the Scandinavian countries, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, throughout Africa and Central and South America, and at both the North and South Poles. In Hessdalen, Norway there are so many UFO sightings that a permanent webcam has been set up, with amazing results. UFOs have also been reported repeatedly over civilian and military nuclear facilities; at military bases in the U.S. and worldwide; above and beneath the surface of the Earth’s oceans; and outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

All kinds of people see UFOs. It does not matter whether you are rich or poor, educated or uneducated, young or old. In fact, many people who report seeing UFOs were not even looking for them when they had their sightings. The chances for seeing a UFO are greater for those people who live in small towns or in the country and are outside late at night. Even though most have never seen a UFO, some say that their interest in UFOs was sparked by seeing one when they were children or young adults. Many UFO researchers argue that UFOs have appeared throughout history. There are many myths, legends, and stories that tell of strange things seen in the sky or beings that came from above to help humans develop civilization. Because modern scholars cannot directly check the facts of these stories, it is impossible to determine if these are accurate reports of true events. Caution should be taken when evaluating many UFO news items. Readers are encouraged to investigate and research information pertaining to UFOs on an individual basis so they can draw their own conclusions.

But let’s be honest. If the only strange things seen in the sky were a few oddly moving lights, or some specks glinting in the sun, there would be no UFO problem. If there were no human abductions or cattle mutilations, there would be no problem. But there have been many close observations of these strange objects along with first-hand experiences. Plus, physical traces of various kinds have been left behind, and witnesses have experienced physical and medical effects, including injury, implants and death. If we can narrow down all of the reported sightings to between 5% and 25%, depending on the sample, then even this is enough to warrant expert examination. Even 1% would warrant attention.. And the disturbing truth is that the USA and U.K. governments have been complicit with a certain minority group of ETs, enabling them to do harmful things to people and animals, all the while hushing up their presence in a tangled web of agreements run amuck.

PsyWar: A Short History of the Battle for the Mind

free-dumb

As with all totalitarian regimes, the black/white or the good/bad Baby Bush “You’re either with us or you’re with the Terrorists” – binary rhetoric lies at the heart of the Global Power Elite’s PsyWar technology.

In 2004, Denis Boneau, a French journalist writing for the Voltaire Network, published an article called “The Science of World Domination”  (www.voltairenet.org/The-Science-of-World-Domination), making an excellent summary of key milestones in the development of the United States’ post-World War II Global Psychological Warfare Strategy.

He starts by describing the Truman Doctrine of “Containment” of the former Soviet Union that was based on the so-called “long telegram” sent to the State Department in 1946 by an advisor in the US embassy in Moscow – and key Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) scholar – George S. Kennan.

Shortly afterwards, Kennan was called back to the US to brief his superiors more fully and his recommendations were finally published in the July 1947 issue of Foreign Affairs, the official journal of the CFR, as “The Sources of Soviet Conduct.” This became known as the “X” article because that’s how Kennan signed it, as there was still heated debated as to whether it would become official US foreign policy.

It did. With his highly influential article, Kennan gave birth to the US policy of “Containment” of the Soviet Union which consisted in blocking the expansion of communism through the control of national emancipationist movements that could lead to greater power to pro-socialist or nationalist leaders.

As official policy, “Containment” required the collaboration of experts capable of providing geographical, economic, cultural, psychological and sociological data useful to the US Armed Forces and the intelligence community, working very closely with key think tanks like the CFR.

Thus began the Cold War which Kennan and the US Government believed would give the United States a historic opportunity to assume leadership over what they would eventually describe as the “Free World.” With time, as the Global Power Elite became more deeply embedded inside the US and British public and private power structures (and that of their key allies), that “leadership” would end up encompassing practically the whole planet.

In a way, one can say that the CFR in conjunction with other think-tank and university scholars – George Kennan, Henry Kissinger, Leo Strauss, Zbigniew Brzezinski included – single-handedly started and macro-managed last century’s forty-five year long Cold War.

As part of that global strategy, 1947 also saw the Truman Administration sanction the National Security Act which, amongst other things, created the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) tasked with designing, planning and executing “propaganda, economic war, direct preventive action, sabotage, anti-sabotage, destruction, subversion against hostile States, assistance to clandestine liberation movements, guerrilla, murders, assistance to indigenous groups opposed to the enemy countries of the ‘free world’…

What is Psychological Warfare?

Boneau defines Psychological Warfare (PsyWar) as a number of actions ranging from radio propaganda to torture, that require comprehensive information on targeted populations. In a document written in 1948, American ground forces defined “psychological warfare” as follows:

“It is based on moral and physical means different from those upon which orthodox military techniques are based on. Its purpose is: (a) To destroy the will and the fighting spirit of the enemy and avoid its allies’ support and, (b) To encourage our troops and our allies’ will of being victorious.”

PsyWar uses every possible weapon and tool to influence and impact the will of the enemy. Such “weapons” are labelled “psychological” because of their effect and not because of their own nature. This is the reason why, open propaganda (“white”), secret (“black”) or “grey” propaganda – subversion, sabotage, murders, special operations, guerrilla, espionage, political, economic and racial and ethnic pressures – are all considered useful PsyWar weapons.

To implement such programs, the intelligence services recruited specialists on behavioural sciences capable of inventing the “simple, clear and repetitive” white propaganda and black propaganda aimed at provoking “disorder, confusion and… terror” within the enemy forces.

We thus begin to fathom that the so-called “Arab Spring” of today did not just suddenly and spontaneously explode in 2011, but was rather hatched from an “egg” laid decades ago and brooded by the secret intelligence agencies.

“White” Propaganda

This began in the 40’s and 50’s with Project Troy that mobilised top scholars to identify available means of transmitting the “truth” (i.e., US propaganda) behind the Iron Curtain through powerful radio transmitters like the Voice of America, the broadcasting network created by the International Information Service (IIS), another PsyWar institution created under the Truman Administration.

Voice of America was used to promote US “values” of so-called “democracy,” the “American Way of Life,” “freedom” and Corporate Capitalism. A key leader of Project Troy was James Webb, adviser to Secretary of State Dean Acheson and a “psychological warfare” operative who recommended university experts and the government to work closer.

They soon realised, however, that Voice of America was not enough to penetrate the Iron Curtain and supported by the US Navy and the CIA, they suggested other channels to implement “white” propaganda: university exchanges, publications of books, information through the mail, professional journals, commerce and industrial publications.

Truman also created the Psychological Strategy Board encouraging studies of “Soviet society” through a program of recruiting dissidents called Project CENIS – Centre for International Studies – at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) directed by CFR operative Max Millikan.

This worked so well that in 1950 the US Air Force commissioned and funded similar research on the Korean population. Wilbur Schramm, the founding father of the mass communication paradigm, John Ridley and Fredericks Williams were given the mission of interviewing anti-communist refugees to draw up a suitable propaganda strategy on Korea. The study also resulted in the establishment of the “Public Opinion Quarterly” (POQ), the official magazine of “psychological warfare” community.

In the 1963 Project Camelot was created that defined process models leading to national revolutions in Third World countries to facilitate counter-insurgence operations. Camelot is a good example of the strengthening ties between behavioural scholars and the US Intelligence community (i.e., intel services, universities, major corporations, think-tanks and the Military). It facilitated interventions in Yemen, Cuba and the Congo, and helped foresee and prevent the risk of revolution.

In Chile, operating through the Special Operations Research Office (SORO), Project Camelot supported CIA plans to overthrow the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende imposing General Augusto Pinochet’s military junta on Chile on 11 September 1973.

Psychological Warfare Strategy development also counted on key universities dealing in Communication Sciences to develop the “mass communication” paradigm financed by the US Military, the CIA and the State Department. This led to effective propaganda used to penetrate the Iron Curtain through different means, including leaflets and broadcasting. The discipline’s field of study was wide: persuasion techniques, opinion polls, interviews, military and political mobilisations, ideological dissemination…

They have now come a long way thanks to dramatic breakthroughs in communications and information technologies, where propaganda and PsyWar have to a great extent been outsourced and privatised. Today, their main PsyWar weapons include TV, radio, press and internet outlets such as Fox, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, New York Times, Newsweek, BBC, RTVE, RAI, Time, Daily Telegraph, Sun, Mirror, Daily News, Reuters, Jerusalem Post and their global subsidiaries and dependants.

Most importantly, this process also encompasses that key arm of social engineering and thought deformation known as the “entertainment industry” with Hollywood as its main hub and flagship.

Dirty Tricks Departments

From the very beginning, torture was considered a research field in social sciences. During the Korean War, the BSSR (main “black” propaganda research centre) was charged with carrying out studies for the Army to identify Eastern Europe population’s “vulnerability targets and factors” while defining different “aspects of psychological violence.” BSSR reported on the effects of traditional interrogation techniques – electric shocks, blows, drugs – all funded in part by the CIA, especially on the populations of Viet Nam and Africa, geared at improving torture effectiveness.

The paradigm of mass communication was inserted in a broader intellectual plan consisting in the division of the world map based on the American strategists’ logic. The patriarch of this discipline, Wilbur Schramm (as did Leo Strauss), offered a perspective of this reductionist dimension of communication sciences based on the “good guys/bad guys” antagonism, where communism symbolised “Evil” and America symbolised “Good.” This was shared by the majority of the intellectuals and scientists supporting the US government in its fight against Soviet expansionism where neutrality was considered treason.

In 2001, the Bush Administration reactivated these Cold War mechanisms, not to fight the Soviet Union but to impose a “New World Order.” Since 11 September 2001, the excuse for this reactivation is “The War on Terror.” Once again the intelligence community turned to universities: the CIA’s director of scientific research, John Philips, took control of the Rochester Institute of Technology; Michael Crawl, deputy director of the CIA’s joint economic association in the computer sector was appointed dean of the University of Arizona, and Robert Gates (former CIA director under Bush Senior) before becoming Bush/Obama’s Pentagon Chief was president of Texas A&M University.

Alas! Nothing new under the sun…
