I was averaging about two dates a day three or four days a week for several months. I was e-mailing with a tattooed polygamist, a successful author, an Israeli engineer and a professional comedian who sent me unsolicited nude selfies rear view. I got to mess around with a hot app developer 20 years my junior even if I did have to pick him up at the BART station. I got to enjoy the popularity I missed out on in high school. His mother and my father worked together as physicists at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. George was 11 with curly dark hair, brown eyes and a serious manner as he politely showed me his model train set. Over the years, George and I saw each other at family parties. We both smiled a lot. In , when I was a year-old nerd, I needed a date for my senior prom.
For those who believe in the existence of the deep state, there are a number of institutional as well as extralegal relationships that might suggest its presence. There is a certain logic to that assumption, as a deep state has to be organized around a center of official and publicly accepted power, which means it normally includes senior officials of the police and intelligence services as well as the military. For the police and intelligence agencies, the propensity to operate in secret is a sine qua non for the deep state, as it provides cover for the maintenance of relationships that under other circumstances would be considered suspect or even illegal.
There have, in fact, been four military coups in Turkey.
Glenn Greenwald’s article is completely accurate, Philip Giraldi, a former counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer at the CIA, told Sputnik, commenting on the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist’s recent op-ed which shed light on Facebook’s controversial practice of blocking accounts of individuals at the request of the US and Israeli governments.
Others say it is the files on leading Mafia figures who were previously hired by the CIA to kill Castro but never testified before congressional investigations because they were slain just before they were about to appear. But there are several categories of files that they agree offer the prospect of bringing into better focus a plot that most Americans believe involved more than Oswald acting alone. Just as importantly, researchers say, the files could clear some individuals or agencies that have been suspected of involvement.
Among them are the repeated references to a pair of security reviews that were conducted by the Navy on Oswald, a former Marine who defected to Russia before returning to the United States. Advertisement The information is considered by researchers to be critical to understanding what the military discovered about Oswald before and immediately after the assassination. In the s the Assassination Records Review Board interviewed former military investigators who said they were involved in investigating Oswald.
Tunheim said he thought he had been making progress in getting the information. A spokesman for the Office of Naval Intelligence told the Globe that the agency does not keep records that old but said he would make additional inquiries. Repeated follow-up calls were not returned. Yet it is the CIA that remains the major focus of most disclosure efforts by journalists, scholars, and other researchers.
The CIA maintains that it has provided all relevant documents to the Archives.
It Was Israel’s Mossad Which Tutored SAVAK In Torture, According To CIA Officials
Reply Are you even listening? I acknowledged that the Roosevelt administration bolstered the Soviets, but it was merely incidental; an accident of history. The Soviets were merely a proxy for opposition to Nazi Germany, which was threatening Anglo-American dominance of the European continent and the OSS and proto-CIA groups only funded all these communist resistance groups across Asia because they were opposed to the Axis powers which were occupying their homeland. Firstly, free trade particularly , open borders and population transfers have been championed by members of the left and right and both right and left wing groups are involved in pushing and funding these causes at various points in time.
This is literally all in pursuit of Anglo-American hegemony through tearing down barriers to trade and the expansion of the corporate apparatus. Again, you seem to be completely incapable of recognizing incidental connections and fabricate patterns by cherry picking facts.

Over a dozen informants were killed or imprisoned in the period by the Chinese government, a devastating and confounding setback for the agency, the Times reported.

Handwritten in their pages were the names and phone numbers of CIA assets and undercover officers, as well as the addresses of covert facilities and operational notes — pieces of secret and top secret information “the disclosure of which could cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States,” the government wrote.
The CIA declined to comment beyond the information publicly released on the arrest. Lee, 53, made an initial court appearance in Brooklyn on Tuesday and did not enter a plea, the Justice Department said.

Deep State America
Vanessa Pierson, the heroine of Valerie Plame’s first novel, is — ahem — “blonde, lithe, and nicely sexy. But just as her informant is about to tell her where Bhoot will be, he’s shot by a sniper who misses Vanessa — or does he simply overlook her? How will Vanessa Pierson halt the terrorists, protect the world and, by the way, also keep the secret of her forbidden romance with David, a fellow CIA ops officer with green-flecked hazel eyes?
Blowback moves through assorted picturesque world capitals, including Vienna, Paris, London and Prague, with occasional glimpses of the comparatively mundane suburbs around Washington D. The authors are Sarah Lovett, a career suspense novelist, and Valerie Plame, who may be the most famous former CIA covert operations officer who was ever portrayed by Naomi Watts in a major motion picture.
As a spy thriller, the book contains its fair share of shootouts and high-speed chases, but Plame tells NPR’s Scott Simon that she and Lovett wanted the novel to paint a “realistic portrait” of a female operations officer.
I have been confronted with a problem on a dating/relationships site to which I belong, and, although I have discussed the problem with several local law enforcement members, I have not had the opportunity to discuss it with anyone “in the know” therefore, I hope that an officer HERE on the Police Forums will be able to tell me if I should drop it or report it.
Is it illegal for anyone to wear a Police Uniform , I was going to report it to the local FBI offices. But, prior to doing so, I wanted to discuss first. Concerning the problem, I will attempt to keep it short, and, if you need to know more, I will add more per your demands. Yesterday, as I was searching through the site’s ads, I came upon an advertiser who is running a full length view of himself wearing a full uniform of a Police Uniform including the shoulder patches and the badge, but minus the Gun Belt with the items that are normally on the Gun Belt.
I sent that advertiser an e-mail telling him that he could be charged with impersonating a peace officer in so doing, and he laughed at me, so, I informed the site’s owner, who, also thought that I was merely stirring up trouble. They do not distinguish anyone, just impersonating anyone in general. This site makes a similar statement but not to that strong impact.
Because I minister to members of Law Enforcement as an ordained minister, LEOs to me are like members of my own flesh and blood family and it truly irritates me when any who doesn’t even normally like cops, wears a uniform of the Law Enforcement members. What I would like to know, should I merely drop the issue or go ahead and report it to the local FBI offices.
I have written to several places including the Police Forums offices, and awaiting responses. If you think drop it, then I will drop it.
Visas for Al-Qaeda: CIA Handouts That Rocked the World
In late a high official of the Papal Secretariat offered the Americans information on strategic bombing targets in Japan. His contacts in Italy, including those with the Vatican, made him an ideal choice for the Italian assignment after the war. Brennan balanced his staff with agents from the left and the right.

Then again, damsel in emotional distress is During his time at Quantico , he had believed he was working undercover as an FBI recruit, but Liam O’Connor revealed to him that he had been dropped as a special agent, and was, in fact, retraining.

Donovan bowed his head reverently as the pontiff intoned a ceremonial prayer in Latin and decorated him with the Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Sylvester, the oldest and most prestigious of papal knighthoods. From then on, Pro Deo was financed by Donovan, who believed that such an expenditure would result in valuable insight into the secret affairs of the Vatican, then a neutral enclave in the midst of fascist Rome.
When the Allies liberated Rome in , Morlion re-established his spy network in the Vatican; from there he helped the OSS obtain confidential reports provided by apostolic delegates in the Far East, which included information about strategic bombing targets in Japan. For centuries the Vatican has been a prime target of foreign espionage. Ecclesiastical, political and economic information filters in every day from thousands of priests, bishops and papal nuncios, who report regularly from every corner of the globe to the Office of the Papal Secretariat.
So rich was this source of data that shortly after the war, the CIA created a special unit in its counterintelligence section to tap it and monitor developments within the Holy See.
The CIA is hardly the only spy service to grapple with blowback from making prisoners scream. Even leaders of Communist Vietnam’s wartime intelligence agency, notorious for torturing American.
