SENATE BURGLARY: CIA Domestic Black-Op Team Arrested



By Gordon Duff

Last week’s breakin at Senator Mary Landrieu’s office in the New Orleans Federal Building was more than it seemed, much more.  All of the 4 arrested had been trained by the CIA and, possibly, Israel.  One arrested, Stan Dai, is listed as an Operations Officer of the Department of Defense Irregular Warfare Program and  a known expert and lecturer on, not only surveillance but explosives training, assassinations and “false flag operations.”  If you wanted a plane to crash, an enemy to get sick and die or a building to blow up, Dai would be the man to know how to make it happen.  Problem is, his skills were being used as part of a criminal conspiracy inside the United States against members of our own government.

Original reports on the “break-in” were also wrong.  One of those arrested was found blocks away with a covert receiver, managing the office bugs.  The man in the car is identified as Stan  Dai, Operations Officer for the Department of Defense Irregular Warfare Program:

“one of the four was arrested with a listening device in a car blocks from the senator’s offices.” The FBI’s affidavit noted that Flanagan and Basel were in the building with O’Keefe, and a federal law enforcement official confirmed to AP that Dai was the one in the car.”

What is not initially known is whether this was the first attempt or, as is much more likely, an additional incursion to plant new bugs as the ones in place were missing key conversations.  Also, it is not known how many “black ops” crews are being run by the CIA inside the United States in violation of their charter or if their operations are being limited to spying on Democratic lawmakers or if operations of a more threatening nature have been performed but remain undiscovered.

Additionally, as this was a covert op against  US government investigations of, not only terrorism and terrorism funding but major financial crimes against the United States, it is unclear who the recipient of the “product,” an intelligence industry term for “output” or information put up for “distribution” might be.  Potential buyers could be the Republican Party, Israel, Turkey, India, Russia, China, Venezuela, North Korea or financial institutions involved in massive money laundering schemes being investigated by the Senate’s Committee on Homeland Security of which Senator Landireu is a member.

Learn how the Intelliegence Community Center for Academic Excellence (IC CAE) at Georgetown University and the CIA got involved in this seedy domestic “black ops” group.  In a story broken this week:

Dai’s links to the intelligence community appear to be particularly strong. He was a speaker at Georgetown University’s Central Intelligence Agency summer school program in June 2009, and is also listed as an Assistant Director at the Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence at Trinity in D.C. (note the parallels between the Georgetown program tied to “conservative think tanks” and the GWU program with similar ties and the same characters where we trace Dr. Hasan, Ft Hood mass murderer to)

The university’s president Patricia McGuire told The Associated Press that it promoted careers in intelligence but denied that it trains students to be spies.  (a seemingly meaningless statement considering what has happened)

The Trinity program received a “$250,000 renewable grant from the U.S. Intelligence Community” upon launching in 2004, according to its Web site. The program’s goals are stated:

The IC CAE in National Security Studies Program was established during 2005 in response to the nation’s increasing need for IC professionals who are educated and trained with the unique knowledge, skills and capabilities to carry out America’s national security objectives.

The CIA summer school packet also notes that Dai “served as the Operations Officer of a Department of Defense irregular warfare fellowship program.”

Dai has been an undergraduate fellow with the Washington-based national security think tank Foundation for the Defense of the Democracies (FDD), according to his College Leadership Program award biography at the Phillips Foundation — as Lindsay Beyerstein first reported.

FDD claims that it’s partly funded by the US State Department. Its Leadership Council and Board of Advisers comprise many high-profile conservative politicians and public figures — including former House speaker Newt Gingrich, Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), Weekly Standard editor William Kristol, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), former Bush official Richard Perle and columnist Charles Krauthammer.

Operatives recruited in universities and managed thru conservative think tanks receive paid “vacations” to Israel and elsewhere, places where they are trained in silent killing, use of poisons, explosives and other potentially useful skills whether their career is in intelligence or politics.  As with other terrorist suspects such as those who travel to Afghanistan for their training, these domestic types are funded covertly through the US government but, as we see in New Orleans, rented out to either Israel, India or the Republican party.

This history of this program parallels one from the Nixon administration after the Vietnam War.  CIA recruiters subsidized hundreds, perhaps several thousand veterans, Marines, Special Forces and Army Rangers who served in unofficial and semi-official capacities in and out of the US.  Some serve to this day.  Today’s, if current bio’s are any indication, depend more on ideology than physical bravery or intellectual qualifications.  Perhaps the “purity” test left little room for battle hardened veterans who might choose country over party and loyalty over cash.

In a “clarification” of how Israel is involved and sees their cooperation in this domestic terror organization as part of their support of the United States as a trusted ally, we received the following story:

Dai traveled to Israel for two weeks in 2004 on an FDD (Foundation for the Defense of the Democracies, a conservative Washington based “think tank” with CIA ties) -sponsored trip, the Daily Herald reported. “All expenses (room, board and travel) will be assumed by FDD,” FDD’s Web site said of its Israel program.

A host of FDD testimonials from Academic Fellows reveal that many fellows have traveled to Israel for training and field trips. The Foundation says the course includes “lectures by academics, diplomats, military and intelligence officials, and politicians from Israel, Jordan, India, Turkey and the United States.”

FDD proclaims that “Like America, Israel is at the forefront in the war on terrorism.” Further explaining its interest in Israel, FDD declares:

“Both the United States and Israel are democracies, and both face the same enemy. It is this connection between Israel’s experience and the future of the United States that is the essence of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.”

One FDD testimonial, by 2004-2005 fellow Dr. Cathal J. Nolan, highlighted the group’s bond with high-level intelligence and government officials in Israel:

“The access which FDD provided to top government officials–and to academic, police, security service, and intelligence experts at the highest levels–was truly remarkable. I know of no other foundation or fellowship program which is able to provide so much top-level access and first-hand intelligence and security service information in so compact a form, or in such an intellectually stimulating environment.”

No explanation was offered as to how this “stimulating environment” managed to foster attacks on high security government offices, filled with vital intelligence.  If Israel and the United States face the same enemy, why is Israel training Americans to attack America?  One can’t help but see parallels between “junkets” to Israel for “intelligence training” and Islamic militants who go to Afghanistan for “terrorist” training.

How few Islamic terrorists would we catch if they were aided by Washington “think tanks,” guided by the Department of Defense or funded by the CIA?

Last week, Veterans Today outlined the many high security projects being monitored from Senator Landrieu’s office which included, not only terrorist money laundering and other security issues but investigations targeting tens of billions of dollars being hidden offshore illegally by Americans, many with ties to Israel.  The projects subject to spying by this CIA/Israeli operation are, among others:  (source:  Department of Homeland Security and the United States Senate)


Current hearings held by the Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Landireu, hearings subject to this espionage attack involve:

  • Intelligence reform in the aftermath of the Christmas terrorist attack
  • Overviews of contracting corruption in Afghanistan
  • Planning for securing America’s diplomats around the world
  • The Terrorist Reform and Terrorist Prevention Act (IRTPA)
  • Investigating the root causes of the Ft. Hood attack
  • Securing America from financial crimes
  • America’s Defense from Cyber Attack
  • Development plans for “post surge” Afghanistan

Current investigations by the Sub-Committee on Investigations are:

  • Speculation in trading and how it effects national security
  • How US banks help overseas corporation dodge US taxes
  • Report on Tax Havens hiding billions from the IRS
  • Massive abuses of government credit cards by employees
  • Ending “offshore secrecy” to allow the US to recover billions in tax shortfall
  • Shell Oil credit card interest abuses
  • Medicaid abuse and equipment overcharges
  • Billions in unpaid taxes on Medicaid income by American doctors
  • Speculation in the energy markets costing American consumers billions a year
  • Failures in United Nations reform, waste and corruption
  • Speculation and manipulation that controls and rigs crude oil and gasoline markets
  • and many many more


  • The Senate HSC is responsible for implementing all intelligence reforms resulting from the findings of the 9/11 commission especially in light of continued failures as demonstrated by the Ft. Hood tragedy and the Detroit terror attack.

Current contracting oversight responsibilities:

  • Overseeing all USAID reconstruction contracts in Afghanistan
  • Investigating massive corruption tied to the US Embassy in Kabul
  • Overseeing all US contractors used in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world in regard to corrupt practices and cost overruns
  • Detecting and Prosecuting Contractor Fraud

No information has been given as to how Federal authorities came to break up this terrorist operation but we are told that informants inside the CIA still loyal to the United States were involved.  The arrest of Dai, a highly trained operative blocks away from the scene opens a number of scenarios.

With much of the CIA’s former leadership now employed by Blackwater/Xe, a company owned and controlled by Republican party leadership, the lines between domestic and foreign intelligence operations have become blurred.  “CIA agents” killed in Afghanistan recently may all have been Blackwater/Xe employees, some or all former CIA operatives seeking the higher salaries of the private security industry.  Has the CIA become “interchangable” with a mercenary group tied to a political party and available for hire by anyone with enough money?  The deteriorating security sitiuation in Afghanistan and Pakistan gives creedence to this hypothesis.

The use of forces designated only to be used against American enemies outside the United States against elected officials of our own government, possibly on behalf of an unfriendly foreign government, is a total indictment of the usefulness of our entire intelligence community.  Attempts to centralize intelligence resources only tied those resources to individuals whose political ideologies surpassed loyalty to the United States or were superceded by moral flexibility, so often the case with politicians, now popularly described under the term “situational narcissism.” (believing one’s position places one above any moral code or ethical standard)

Significant polarization within the political community during the Bush administration encouraged members of the intelligence community to look on members of the opposition political party as terrorist sympathizers.  We are told that many members of the military and intelligence community may be actively involved in “extracurricular” activities, freelancing for individuals no longer in government.  Those co-opted by extremist views are vulnerable to ploys from foreign intelligence agencies who represent themselves as part of “right thinking” or “conservative” patriotic groups.

This is a common ploy, developed long ago by the KGB in the Soviet Union and now SOP, (Standard Operating Proceedure) for agencies of friend and foe alike.

It is now a subject for a legitimate investigation as are such “accidents” as the Ohio plane crash that killed Mike Connell, GOP “vote rigging” guru who asked for police protection from Karl Rove tied to rigging the 2004 Presidential Election.  Connell’s family believes his death was murder.  US Senators, investigative reporters, whistleblowing scientists, “girlfriends” and so many other categories seem to die in numbers well beyond any actuarial table.

We are already spending billions of dollars a year hunting foreign terrorists that threaten the United States.  Do we need to double this and go on a “witch hunt” within our own agencies, the ones we entrust with our own security?  There is only one answer:  Yes, of course we must.  We may not have a few “bad apples,” we may have a diseased orchard.

    Thanks so much for writing this piece. On the heels of an article in the Washington Times recently about “nano-thermite” being discovered in large quantities in the dust of the world trade center disaster on 9/11, I now no longer have to wonder how it may have gotten in those buildings, and by whom. This is getting scarier every day, and I don’t know what to do about it.

  2. MDB  February 12, 2010 at 2:38 am

    Here – here!

    This reminds me of Watergate, only deeper.

    The Times-Picayune has a follow-up on this story in today’s paper,

    very vanilla report, mostly on the attempt by attorney’s for defense to “settle the matter.”

    I bet.

    Her office is only a few miles from my house, I just might go by tomorrow and ask a few questions for the hell of it.

    The criminal conspiracy behind everything that is going on today started in 1913 with the illegal and incomplete adoption of the Federal Reserve private central bank. It continued through the wars that were engineered to permit the banksters to profit off the death and suffering that they caused. Today, we have the CIA running the country.

    Please visit and read the archives. It is time to put our foots down unless we really want to live in assigned housing, work menial jobs and SERVE people that cannot mow their own lawns, fix their own cars or cook breakfast. IS THEIR ORGANIZATION WELL-HONED AND WORKING? NO. If it was, they would not be trying to loot the IRAs of Americans to fund a continuation of their crime spree.

    There are things that we can do. We can organize a national tax strike, move our money to smaller banks and QUIT BUYING ANYTHING UNTIL THEY REALIZE THAT WE ARE SERIOUS. More than any group, veterans have been abused by this group of people who don’t even respect the military at all…that is why they don’t fight themselves or let their children fight.

    We have a real advantage strategically speaking—in that they have completely underestimated our intelligence, our determination and our integrity. Reading postings that make it sound like the self-appointed elite are somehow superior in their planning makes me really mad. The advantage that normal people have over them is that we actually help each other and they actually compete against each other and try to make money from their misdeeds. Their greed is the fulcrum by which they can be toppled.

    decades old disrespect for FBI turf was the originating cause..followed by so much money coming into the political arena…everyone wanted to get their “feet” wet


  5. Steve Naidamast  February 5, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    What the “frak” is going on in this country!?!? The CIA spying on government officials!?!?

    And how does a trained CIA operations officer get picked up in such a small-time operation? Sounds like this may be a “diversionary” operation…

  6. Gordon Duff  February 5, 2010 at 8:50 pm


    You are displaying an excellent working understanding of the world we live in. How do we find more of you?


  7. Mike S  February 5, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    Sounds to me like these scum should be held as enemy combatants and not given any rights. And of course we should collect information from them, since we’ve been assured that waterboarding is not torture, I hope they will get to try it out and enjoy a pleasant swim until they confess everything.

  8. Gordon Duff  February 5, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    good to see u back


  9. Gigas  February 5, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    I have to comment on o keefe. This kid when I first saw him on fox’s glenn beck looked like he was way to incompetent to single handily pull off an investigation of acorn. Than his hot stuff side kick was even less convincing the duo was working just for themselves. There was to much stammering and silent moments explaing the purpose to be believable they were working alone.

    I suspect they are assets for one of the alphabet gang and may very well be cloaked over by the mossad. Now, everything I have been reading since 92 seems to have spook handlers with either Israeli or CIA fingerprints on it. The more information surfacing, the more Israeli played it appears.

    Since Israel owns the us government, they have free reign to run operations where ever they wish, and if anyone stands up to them, they run em over with anti semite finger pointing if not a bullet, rope or injection with suicide as the cause. Look what they did with James Traficant.

    The Jewish people(converted KHAZARS FROM THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN,FAKE JEWS;REVELATION 2:9,3:9) as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.

    In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”

  11. D Costa  February 5, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    This article by Gordon Duff has brought to light the dark aspects of the so called think tanks (operated by Zionist criminals and funded by Zionist criminals, charitable funds of well meaning people who are Zionists without the knowledge of what true Zionism means to our future and even the US government at the expense of tax payers)which can be used for sinister purpose and the names of some people who call themselves conservatives (except Joe Lieberman: a warmonger who calls himself an Independent) who have given a bad name to the conservative movement. They are all well known warmongers who are now caught redhanded for having resorted to criminal activity in alliance with Georgetown University, CIA and Israel. This demonstrates to us their behind the scenes activities to provide coverup and protection to criminal bankers and other Zionist criminals— to help advance their New World Order and One World Mao government– aimed at reducing the world’s population and making the rest eternal slaves– while also promoting crime and terrorism through endless illegal wars– to bankrupt America, kill and injure our young and brave soldiers and to kill as many Muslims, black and other citizens as possible in the world–All for the benefit of Zionist Israel.

    By just studying the names of people behind this think tank we can learn a lot. America’s foremost enemies Eric Cantor (RINO)and Joe Lieberman belong to different political parties but their ultimate goal is the same. These people should be living in Israel serving Israel. America has nothing to benefit from these people. Charles Krauthammer and William Krystol have different platforms but their message is the same aimed at brainwashing different audience. Richard Perle is a Jewish Zionist like all others involved in this case except Newt Gingrich who is a Zionist himself and an attendee of the Bohemian Grove. It is time for the Republican Party to get rid of Eric Cantor and Newt Gingrich ( two foremost enemies of America) and it is time for all Americans to stop getting brainwashed by Charles Krauthammer and William Krystol by rejecting these foremost enemies of America and it is time to cancel all subscriptions to the Weekly Standard of William Krystol. Do a detaled study of who William Krystol is. This America hating warmonger had the audacity to say Ron Paul does not like America. Tea Party movement has been highjacked by America’s enemies. These same enemies are now infiltrating into the Liberty Movement of Ron Paul. Carefully watch those new candidates who are trying to convince America they are for Liberty. No Warmonger can be for Liberty. Any candidate that advocates war on terror is a fraud and a wolf in sheep clothing who is trying to gain entry to our congress. We need to make sure that we do not write a single check to any fraud who advocates war on terrorism. Same goes for our vote. We want our troops home. We want all soldiers treated well and their needs taken care of by the US government instead of giving billions to Israel. We need to stop all illegal wars. We need to stop fighting wars for Israel. America needs to stop meddling in the Middle East and other parts of the world.

    America needs to stop meddling with the inner workings of other sovereign nations such as Sri Lanka. Obama, Hillary Clinton and Ambassador to Sri Lanka Blake are on a mission in their effort to dismantle the stable Sri Lankan government by creating division between various branches of government. They have been manipulating the Army General Sarath Fonseka against President Mahinda Rajapakse and even given General Sarath Fonseka a Green Card to to visit/live in America. This is what these criminal US politicians want to do while saying they want to help other countries. President Mahinda Rajapakse of Sri Lanka is a strong leader who refuses to be manipulated by foreign politicians and who refuses to sell his country for bribe. He is just minding his own business in his own country and these criminals in the US and perhaps their (mistaken) ally Israel cannot allow other nations to mind their own business. We should insist that every politician serves his country and its people. We should insist that they mind their own business without sticking their nose into the business of other countries.

    If there is any threat to the life of President Mahinda Rajapakse the beloved leader of Sri Lanka the culprits are US and their so called ally the criminal state: Israel. Please refer to the article “Why is America in so many wars? by Sherwood Ross, Uruknet 2/3/2010. Contact Lawrence Velvel, Dean of MA School of Law for further information on illegal wars and attend future coferences about this subject. Soldiers: fight against illegal wars and stop allowing yourselves to be used in fighting illegal wars that have nothing to do with protecting America. Read books by Jeff Gates, Texe Marrs, Richard Mack, Michael Collins Piper, Victor Thorn and Mark Glenn. God Bless the World and God Bless our soldiers.

    Wow! Read Gordon Duff and then watch Glenn Beck for a week. They are on different pages of the same book. Fascinating.

  13. Gordon Duff  February 5, 2010 at 5:02 am


    No conjecture. This was a bungled CIA job done by a typical domestic operations team, like the ones they have been recruiting on campuses for decades. If it weren’t for one of their perps having a dad in the US atty’s office, able to slime him out of jail, the CIA would have used a professional team…building cleaners, maintainence..etc…better quality.

  14. Alton  February 5, 2010 at 3:57 am

    What i would like to see is if after the congressional hearing and the parties responsible are dragged before the Congress, that Ms. Landrieu gets up out of her seat, walks over to the person responsible, slaps his face and shouts “how dare you!” I think in a case like that I would pay to see it done and since probably nothing will happen B/C of the press being controlled…yeah it would be something to see.

  15. Gordon Duff  February 5, 2010 at 2:02 am

    You are joking, aren’t you? Quoting Fox News? When Dai was arrested, he was in a car with a Dominator receiver, made in Israel and used for national security level wire tapping.

    As for disinformation, what is the source for any of the pap your are spreading? Is it your fox news URL? Do you have any real sources? Denials from lawyers are worthless, however, we have sources on O’Keefe, Dai and Flanagan.

    Ignore what you will.

    Your boys got turned in for running a phony CIA op for the wrong handlers. Not sure what your angle is but you aren’t very good at it. We do know this about you. You are an employee of a Washington firm that is using a proxy server that plants other misleading idiocy around the internet.

    Get a better quality Proxy, one that will hide your IP address.


  16. YankeeWriter  February 5, 2010 at 1:53 am

    This is the worst attempt at planting disinformation I’ve ever seen. Let’s try the truth. Oh and the Senator’s name is spelled Landrieu not Landieu (you couldn’t even get the only true fact you wne t with straight.: Title: Filmmaker Who Targeted ACORN Arrested in Alleged Senate Phone Scheme.

    Story in part: The independent filmmaker who brought ACORN to its knees last year with undercover exposes was arrested this week along with three others, including the son of a federal prosecutor, and accused of trying to interfere with the phones at Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office.

    Federal officials did not say why the men wanted to interfere with Landrieu’s phones or whether they were successful. She has been in the news recently because she negotiated an increase in Medicaid funds for her state before announcing her support for Senate health care legislation.

    Calls to the cell phone of the filmmaker, James O’Keefe, were not returned, but his lawyer, Michael Madigan defended his client’s character.

    “We don’t have any of the facts yet, but James O’Keefe, at heart, is a really good kid,” Madigan said in a statement to Fox News. “We are looking into this further and are awaiting hearing from James directly.”

    O’Keefe, 25, already was in Landrieu’s New Orleans office Monday when Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, both 24, showed up claiming to be telephone repairmen, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s office said Tuesday. Letten says O’Keefe recorded the two with his cell phone.

    In the reception area, Flanagan, the son of acting U.S. Attorney Bill Flanagan in Shreveport, and Basel asked for access to the main phone at the reception desk.

    After handling the phone, “Flanagan and Basel next requested access to the telephone closet because they needed to perform work on the main telephone system,” Letten’s office said.

    The men were directed to another office in the building, where they’re accused of again misrepresenting themselves as telephone repairmen.

    They were arrested later by the U.S. Marshal’s Service. Details of the arrest were not available. A fourth man, Stan Dai, 24, was also arrested, but Letten’s office said only that he assisted the others in planning, coordinating and preparing the operation.

    Somewhere recently I read, “Do you know how to tell that the CIA didn’t shoot Kennedy?”

    A: He’s dead, isn’t he?

  18. Gordon Duff  February 4, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    Thank you Tony, will keep up the good effort

  19. Gordon Duff  February 3, 2010 at 5:03 pm


    One of my friends sent his son to such a school. He died there. That the CIA would ignore hiring their normal crew of elitists and delusional vets and focus in on moronic evangelical types is amusing.


  20. Gordon Duff  February 3, 2010 at 5:01 pm


    Your comments are inaccurate. thanks for reading. is there a school near you? if so, attend it please.


  21. Gordon Duff  February 3, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Curious response.

  22. MDB  February 3, 2010 at 2:19 am

    I’m in New Orleans, and this story isn’t even being talked about, much less published in the Time-Picayune. Nothing after the first 4-days, then complete blackout.

    I HAVE to trek down to Landrieu’s office and ask some questions, along with the local paper. Something is terribly wrong here.

  23. D Costa  February 3, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Thank you for your nice article.

  24. D Costa  February 3, 2010 at 1:14 am

    Thank you Gordon Duff for this wonderful article. This exposes several well known people who are enemies of America (Newt Gingrich, Eric Cantor, Bill Crystal, Richard Perle, Charles Krauthammer and Joe Lieberman) which I have known for a while. Their association with each other and alliance with CIA/Mossad operation while hiding behind a think tank to get Zionist funding for their shady operation and while using Georgetown University are all understandable. I have been writing about Zionist crime myself for nearly four years. Zionist criminals have been intercepting my phone, blocking my e mail, tamperinf with my mail and watching every move I make. It makes me sad the way our sodiers have been made to fight illegal wars for the benefit of Israel. America’s military has been highjacked by Zionist criminals.

  25. Lynda Hendrell  February 3, 2010 at 12:51 am

    You’re just another right wing kool aid drinker.

  26. Lynda Hendrell  February 3, 2010 at 12:49 am

    Indeed Nelson. That’s why Obama isn’t taking any action. I believe he’s already been told that if he doesn’t do what the National Security State wants him to, regarding Israel/Palestine and Afghanistan and general “war on terror” and 9/11 coverup, he will share JFK and RFK’s fate.

  27. Lynda Hendrell  February 3, 2010 at 12:46 am

    John, You’re sick if you think God approves of Israel’s behavior! Forget Iran wiping it off the map, I expect God itself to do it! They are condemned out of their own scriptures, even the Old Testament. It’s a right wing police state practising apartheid on the Palestinian people, whose country they stole outright in a military coup! Israel gov. acts with impunity because the entire Western world is shaking in fear of being called Anti Semitic! So they pursue the final solution to the Palestinian problem (and probably the Jordanian, Lebanese, Syrian, and Iranian problems too). Meanwhile, they are practically running the American gov. through AIPAC. I’m not saying it is the Israeli people, most of them, only the government.

  28. Ned Delaney  February 3, 2010 at 12:28 am

    This article pretty much validates the ongoing contention that rogue elements within the government are heavily at work undermining the very fabric of constitutional law. I suggest you stay tuned, because until the the events of 9/11 are documented and clarified, those behind the plot as it played out will certainly continue to pollute our nation’s fiber. Likewise, a nation in denial not only places itself at risk but those generations to come that we claim to value so highly.

  29. Jen  February 2, 2010 at 4:48 pm

  31. Michael Russell  February 2, 2010 at 12:58 am

    This is a very well written, researched, and documented article. Why isn’t it being covered by the broadcast media. This scandal is at least as big as Watergate, and much more devastating. If moles within our secret government agencies have taken over, and are guilty of attacking our own representatives, then revolution awaits.

  32. LewisM3  February 1, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    So many conspirecy theroies but so little fact. The one about supporting Isreal to kiss God’s butt was ripe. LOL… How long will the sheep do circles?

  33. MK  February 1, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    It is time for ALL AMERICANS to begin pulling together. It was too easy to get everybody convinced that ACORN an organization associated with low income families of color was EVIL without too much effort. A little more research would have demonstrated that these SKEESE BALLS (like this kid) who “investigated” ACORN went to a lot of ACORN offices and got turned down before they found the one bad apple. What kills me is that most Americans have no idea who is REALLY STEALING from this country…it is not the poor people. I will prove it.

    One, there was a study performed at the request of Dick Cheney. It was supposed to prove that poor people are usually dishonest and that they lie to get benefits etc. The study was never publicized because it proved the complete opposite.

    Two, if you read the book, “Perfectly Legal” by David Cay Johnston, you will quickly discover that the reason that stars and politicians buy homes everywhere is to have a legal way to hide money by deducting interest expense and “depreciation” from their many homes. They do the same thing with private jets, face lifts and a whole host of other things that the rest of us consider “luxuries” by saying that they need them for their “jobs” as movie stars and politicians.

    Three, most of the members of Congress have incorporated themselves as for-profit companies and have SEC id numbers. This permits them to legally deduct their entire lifestyle as corporate expenses. It also permits them to hide many investments that would really upset most Americans. Far too many of them own stock in weapons companies, military contractors, road construction, real estate development, pharmaceuticals especially VACCINES, agribusinesses and so forth. They also set up Trusts supposedly for charitable purposes but which generally permit them to pursue activities that will keep them in office and weaken their opposition or push social agendas helpful to them AND DEDUCT THEM.

    Now, who do any of you know in Acorn or any other group that is doing the things that I just mentioned? As long as we (average Americans) remain divided and suspicious of each other, the crooks that are in our government and its agencies can keep victimizing us.

    The CIA has been the handmaiden of big business and industry ever since Nelson Aldritch Rockefeller helped to REORGANIZE it after WWII. Since when is bankrupting other countries to blackmail their leaders into “giving over their natural resources” to US business interests in the Security interests of this country? It actually makes this country less safe because other countries who have been robbed in this fashion will want to attack you and me. We will end up fighting while the guys who made money from this theft are sitting pretty on a beach at Belize.

    I disagree with: “Since the CIA decided to recruit only ‘Christians” … their ability to find tough and intelligent people is likely to suffer a bit.”

    Here’s why. In my book, An American GULAG, Secret P.O.W. Camps for Teens , I described secret, ultra-fundamentalist, independent Baptist *snake-pit* schools where desperate, angry parents send their out-of-control teens. Most of these facilities are in the South, as well as Utah, Montana and Idaho. Many of these teens represent some of the best and brightest kids who were acting out because of the chaos of their parents divorce, or because they refused to be compliant.

    The result: their wealthy parents sent them off for “behavior modification.” I call these teens “walking time bombs.” They have been abused. They suffer from PTSD and dissociative disorder. They have been brainwashed and become robotic. In these faith-based “schools” they are required to salute the Christian flag, not the American red, white and blue. When they return home, their parent(s) is offered a satisfaction guarantee: “If you’re not satisfied, send them back.”

    The phrase: “The more the money, the worse the abuse,” is true. Parents can keep their teens imprisoned in these private “Christian boarding schools,” until they are encoded and able to follow directions. Thus CIA recruiting “the best and brightest” from wealthy families under these circumstances, is like fishing in a stocked pond.

    Mr. Duff,
    What an incredible article. The dots you connected are spot on and you should be comended for having the guts to write about these things.

    Well done,

  36. John Fontenot  February 1, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    The only reason God has not come down solidly against the USA is the support we give God’s people in Israel. Put them under the bus and see what happens to the USA. And should you be stupid enough to go after God then you better pray for mercy.

  37. Gordon Duff  February 1, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    Our Mr. Dia has other friends than these fools in training. Since the CIA decided to recruit only “Christians”….their ability to find tough and intelligent people is likely to suffer a little bit. (they never wanted honest people anyway, so that part will be fine, even better…nobody trusts a “Christian”)

    You can kiss my ass. Crime is crime no matter what part of the government you are operating with. Character assassination is pretty easy, isn’t it? My guess Eugene, is that a normal anti-conspiracy reader wouldn’t be commenting, or much less, reading this sort of thing. I know there are agents that are paid to discredit the opinions of the collective anti-corruption movement. If you are one of those agents, you ought to realize that it won’t be long until we see you in hand-cuffs along side these criminals.

    The Origins of the Overclass

    The wealthy have always used many methods to accumulate wealth, but it was not until the mid-1970s that these methods coalesced into a superbly organized, cohesive and efficient machine. After 1975, it became greater than the sum of its parts, a smooth flowing organization of advocacy groups, lobbyists, think tanks, conservative foundations, and PR firms that hurtled the richest 1 percent into the stratosphere.

    The origins of this machine, interestingly enough, can be traced back to the CIA. This is not to say the machine is a formal CIA operation, complete with code name and signed documents. (Although such evidence may yet surface — and previously unthinkable domestic operations such as MK-ULTRA, CHAOS and MOCKINGBIRD show this to be a distinct possibility.) But what we do know already indicts the CIA strongly enough. Its principle creators were Irving Kristol, Paul Weyrich, William Simon, Richard Mellon Scaife, Frank Shakespeare, William F. Buckley, Jr., the Rockefeller family, and more. Almost all the machine’s creators had CIA backgrounds.

    During the 1970s, these men would take the propaganda and operational techniques they had learned in the Cold War and apply them to the Class War. Therefore it is no surprise that the American version of the machine bears an uncanny resemblance to the foreign versions designed to fight communism. The CIA’s expert and comprehensive organization of the business class would succeed beyond their wildest dreams. In 1975, the richest 1 percent owned 22 percent of America’s wealth. By 1992, they would nearly double that, to 42 percent — the highest level of inequality in the 20th century.
    How did this alliance start? The CIA has always recruited the nation’s elite: millionaire businessmen, Wall Street brokers, members of the national news media, and Ivy League scholars. During World War II, General “Wild Bill” Donovan became chief of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA. Donovan recruited so exclusively from the nation’s rich and powerful that members eventually came to joke that “OSS” stood for “Oh, so social!”

    Gotta do what’s necessary to keep this planned 70 year long war against the Muslim world hot.

    The left wing can say what they want but ACORN is about as crooked as anything I have ever seen and the liberal news media is still trying to absolve it of any wrong doing. I don’t know the whole story on Sen Landrieu’s office but it seems that others do.

  41. Eugene  February 1, 2010 at 3:54 am

    And you will continue to be confused if you listen to this half-baked screed. But, of course, it is always better to rush to judgment with your brains left behind.

  42. belle  February 1, 2010 at 1:29 am

    I’m confused, I thought the kid who did the Acorn expose was the one who got arrested for this break-in?

  43. Nelson_2008  January 31, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    Well we know the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was a botched false-flag attack, covered up by U.S. government “insiders” including Johnson; we have video evidence irrefutably proving that 911 was an inside job; we know for a fact that the “anthrax attacks” were an inside job. Not to mention the countless other government-related suspicious events and illegal/immoral activities in American history that were supressed, lied about, etc. And whatever came of any of it? Absolutely NOTHING of course.

    Hell we even had 5 Israeli agents in custody that were seen celebrating the 911 destruction, had demonstrated foreknowledge, and whom subsequently failed lie detector tests…and what happened? Well they were obviously let go, without any explanation whatsoever, of course.

    The “deep state” can apparently do whatever it wants with impunity. And anyone who disagrees and makes waves, will find out, just like JFK and Martin Luther King did, that “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun”.

  44. Brian  January 31, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    A fascinating, insightful article. Unfortunately the Zionist controlled major media won’t be asking Gordon to appear on Dateline or any other show to discuss the break in at the New Orleans Federal building. If a mainstream reporter criticize Israel their career is over.

    The Israel connection is intriguing and probably correct. They brazenly commit espionage in the USA whenever they want because when they get caught, they get let go due to Israel’s control of our politicians.

    This is outrageous and humorous: FDD proclaims that “Like America, Israel is at the forefront in the war on terrorism.”

    Most of the major terrorist activities, including the 911 attacks, are false flags masterminded by the Mossad. I have written an extensive text on the issue but just Google Mossad 911 and enjoy the reading. What Really Happened and Rense are two of the numerous good sources.

    The Mossad motto: “By way of deception, thou shall do war”

    Of the MOSSAD, the Israeli intelligence service, the SAMS officers say: “Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.” Army School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS)

    Duffy, great stuff need not look any further than the white powder after 9/11 that almost killed two senators dashel and leahy(but did kill some postal workers)and the plane accident that killed senator paul wellstone all politicly involved in either slowing down or attemping to stop the outrageous bill known as the patriot act and to debunk the propaganda being sent out to attack iraq. there is much more,much much more.all coincidental? i think not.

  46. Antiegrav  January 31, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Good stuff. I love when people dismiss stuff by saying “That’s just another government Conspiracy Theory.”
    This is one more story that shows us the only way ANYTHING gets done in government is by conspiring to avoid most of the rules. Someone conspired to ‘out’ this op. Someone conspired to pay for it. Someone conspired to keep it secret. A bunch of somebodies conspired to set up a system where working outside the system was the MO of everyday work.
    I used to chuckle whenever I saw that “Government Code of Ethics” poster hanging in an office.
    The only solution to this is to live locally, ignore the government, and let it all eat itself. We aren’t ever going to be secure if any one of our neighbors is hungry. We aren’t going to be able to buy a bigger government conspiracy than the corporations can buy.
    The Democrats, if they had any balls at all right now, would resign en masse and form a new government system, including a new Constitutional convention which removes the ‘personhood’ rights from corporations and replaces elections with random selection (we would have fewer felons in office), and turns Washington D.C. into an amusement park while the new capitol would be in an ‘unnamed secure location’ where visitors are only allowed to access through video interfaces (read “Haze” by Modesitt) when legislatures are in session, and all officials are recorded and netcast whenever they meet with anyone during their term of office.
    Our government needs to be surveilled, not us.

    “…we may have a diseased orchard.”

    No doubt, that’ a rhetorical question.

    Thank-you, as always, for your in-depth reporting on this. As a result of your background, expertise, and experience, etc., your perspective is exceedingly valuable to everything going on these day. “Deep insights” are necessary to understanding “deep politics.” I always appreciate the fact that you help to “deeply educate” as well as to inform.

    Your blogs entries just keep getting better and better. Your writing is tight, focused, well-referenced, with liberal links. While he blogs in a different way on different issues to a different audience, I have to say that your writing is beginning to top the well-respected, well-known Glenn Greenwald of

    I have long been a fan of his but most of my comments over there simply repeat my encouragement to him to have greater courage. He writes on topics that are interesting but doesn’t often come even close to the central issues, the toughest issues, the issues that demand speaking truth to power, all of which involve great risk.

    I don’t expect his focus to change. Thank god there’s you!

    I’m no detective but I suspect that you are looking at the difference between US Mountain time and Greenwich mean time – ZuLu time.

    Interesting: The above comment I just made was made at 5:30 p.m., mountain time, on Jan. 30, 2010. The January 31, 2010 at 12:30 a.m. is not correct. Rita W. Ague

  50. Rita Walpole Ague  January 31, 2010 at 12:30 am

    Thanks so much for “letting it rip.” Take a look at what happens in the nation’s super fusion center, Colorado Springs. Local cops, often ‘spook’ directed, torture and brutalize non-violent peace demonstrators time and time again, with no consequences. But maybe, just maybe, we are going to get a DOJ investigation going. Google: Colorado Springs Independent, Jan. 21-27 edition, “No peace or justice” news article. There’s mass voter disenfranchisement, intimidation and disenfranchisement of elected delegates/alternates, by the then head of the ACLU, a former (current?) NSA operative. Lots here to investigate. Please help us to “let this one rip. “

    Are we in hell now a hand basket??? I had a hunch years ago that the person that first told me that would be right.
