Washington, DC, February 29, 2016 – The Gerald Ford White House significantly altered the final report of the supposedly independent 1975 Rockefeller Commission investigating CIA domestic activities, over the objections of senior Commission staff, according to internal White House and Commission documents posted today by the National Security Archive at The George Washington University (www.nsarchive.org). The changes included removal of an entire 86-page section on CIA assassination plotsand numerous edits to the report by then-deputy White House Chief of Staff Richard Cheney. read more…
All the usual suspects, all the usual techniques and the introduction of EMR, Heart Attack and Drone technology.
The White House took a different tack. A steering group of officials working on the political crisis of the “Year of Intelligence,” proposed that President Ford issue an executive order (E.O.) to govern intelligence agencies and operations, and that the order include a prohibition on assassinations. Senator Church objected that anything a president set by fiat could be changed by fiat as well, by means of a future executive action. Besides, the Ford executive order, issued in February 1976, lacked the definition that would have been supplied by the Church Committee-recommended statute. President Jimmy Carter issued his own executive orders on intelligence, in a preliminary form in May 1977 and in a reworked version in January 1978. The assassination prohibition would be widened somewhat, by removing the word “political,” which the Ford E.O. had used as a qualifier (as in “political assassination”), and by extending the ban beyond government employees to anyone working for or on behalf of the United States. The Carter ban would be repeated verbatim in President Ronald Reagan’s E. O. 12333, issued on December 4, 1981. Every subsequent president has continued the ban, and the Reagan E.O. itself remains in force.
The solution was so simple. Outsourced to CIA, Mossad, MI6 affiliates known as Gladio, al-qaeda and ISIS.
How much dirt does Hillary have? Henry Kissinger and Dick Cheney know. Bill Clinton is family but Hillary I am not so sure. Henry likes her and she worships him. I’d expect her to have some insurance though. I imagine she has enough classified information to protect herself. She may have enough to guarantee her presidency, a “political assassination” and some very generous donations to the foundation. I expect Dick and Henry can provide her with much information on how to live well and safe as bonafide war criminals.
From JFK to Scalia, it’s like a long running Day of the Condor where the US and Foreign nationals who have refused the bidding of the Global Crime Syndicate have found the Kiss of Death to be lethal.
