This week we continue our look at the secret state with the help of Scott Noble's latest film, Counter Intelligence on the out of control apparatus of "national security services". The focus this week is on drug trafficking and False Flag operations. We supplement the adaptation with some classic Michael Ruppert on the narco-connection to US politics, Mark Crispin Miller on the phrase "conspiracy theory" and a speaker on the FSB and the Ryazan Apartment bombing of 1999.
Thanks to Olivier for a pointer to Counter Intelligence, and thanks to Metanoia Films for making it. The 9/99 video was taken from the ISGP video channel on YouTube
This week we continue our radio adaptation of Scott Noble's latest film, Counter Intelligence, which takes up most of the show. We begin with a profile of the so-called War On Drugs - how this meshes with the agenda of prison privatization, works as an off-the-books income source for the secret government and as a cover for neo-colonialism abroad and for conditioning the domestic population to SWAT teams and the rest of the militaristic totalitarian agenda. We take a break from the film to listen to a speech by a younger and more optimistic Mike Ruppert from a classic Unwelcome Guests episode, number 23 - Double Dipping into Misery (Crack, the CIA and the Prison Industrial Complex). Ruppert notes that laundered drug money is highly correlated with political influence and thus, as we noted last week, since the CIA are so involved in organizing drug smuggling, the secret state effectively controls the US political kabuki.

Part 2 of Counter Intelligence concludes with constitutional lawyer Glenn Greenwald reminding us that the fact that the defining characteristic of the rule of law is that noone should be above it - so how did the idea of prosecuting government leaders for their wrongdoing come to be regarded as a radical one in modern day USA?

The hypocrisy of the Cold War is underlined, with national leaders simultaneously decrying the communist menace to the public whilst accepting their reasonableness in private. We focus particularly on Italy and Operation Gladio as part of a 'Strategy of Tension', noting that there is nothing new about the creation of a fictitious enemy as an excuse for expanding both military oppression overseas and for rolling back civil liberties at home. The sound track of a video from the ISGP video archive about the bombings of apartment blocks in Russia in the run up to the war in Chechnya underlines the fact that the use of fear to manipulate compliant citizens is by no means confined to Western Europe or to the 20th century...
