Jeremy Scahill's - Dirty Wars

Some of us have been a bit critical of Jeremy Scahill's Dirty Wars. Nothing that really affects the establishment gets made into film these days, and for those of us who count the CIA body count (6 million and counting) the Joint Special Operations Command isn't really killing enough to be taken seriously.

Also as a few informed commentators have pointed out, like Ellesberg's Pentagon Papers, this is most likely, clever propaganda by the CIA against the military when most military are just taking orders and are not as smart as the CIA in information warfare and political control. Ellesberg after all got the military the blame while nobody knows about the CIA's  Operation Phoenix.

However, this documentary is still worth watching because JSOC are just another gang of American Taliban too brainwashed to figure out for themselves that they are, as Kissinger put it, 'dumb stupid animals, to be used as pawns'.

The military need to be reminded of this if they haven't got the guts to snuff a few CIA out.

I would argue that outside of covert operations most CIA aren't very clued up too, and that the enemy is inside not outside, but the bottom line is it's hard to stop most low intelligence people from killing if it pays their mortgage.

It's an insult to the intelligence of course but not to mine. Watch the documentary while it's still online and free.
