As the regime media narrative concerning the Muslim Gold Star father Khizr Khan unravels and self-destructs almost by the hour (see here, here, here) it is becoming more apparent that he is just another duplicitous (and disposable) tool of the subterranean deep state and their psychological warfare adjuncts above ground. Like “Nayirah,” and Private Jessica Lynch, his televised emotional words and hastily manufactured persona became an overnight media sensation to drive home a specific narrative. But the immediate impact and impression of their images, however later proven totally spurious and disingenuous, is what remains in the consciousness of the mass public. Propaganda is not about truth but about creating a desired stimulus and response.
Nothing must stand in the way of the deep state’s concentrated effort to discredit and eliminate Donald Trump by any means necessary, just as they did their earlier enemy Senator Joseph McCarthy. They are engaged in an all-out, full court press against him, using all their regime media disinformation assets in attack mode.
In the 1950s CIA director Allen Dulles directed his counterintelligence chief James Jesus Angleton to find a means of destroying McCarthy. Angleton chose a veteran of the OSS, James McCargar, to undertake this covert espionage/disinformation action against McCarthy. These facts are discussed in Tim Weiner, Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA; and Gregg Herken, The Georgetown Set: Friends and Rivals in Cold War Washington.
Joe McCarthy was brought down by an organized covert campaign by the deep state and their Operation Mockingbird media assets. CBS chairman William Paley, Fred Friendly, and Edward R. Murrow were part of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Operation Mockingbird to provide deflection and cover for the CIA’s ‘family jewels’ of the day. CBS News president Sig Mickelson (1954-61) was liaison to the CIA. Because of his frequent communications, Mickelson even had a direct private phone line installed to the Agency. CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite was a former military intelligence officer also connected within this elite nexus.
The destruction of McCarthy and his populist crusade against the elites governing America was a triumph of the most powerful forces of the National Security State.
George Clooney’s film, Good Night and Good Luck, does not delve into Joe McCarthy’s preliminary investigation of CIA covert activities and how CBS chairman William Paley, Fred Friendly, and Edward R. Murrow were part of the Agency’s Operation Mockingbird to provide deflection and cover for the Agency’s ‘family jewels’ of the day.
CIA director Allen Dulles, CBS chairman William Paley, and CBS board director Senator Prescott Bush were long-time intimate associates in various sociopolitical networks of the northeastern seaboard establishment found in Washington and New York during the days of the early Cold War. Whether they would meet in their private clubs, at the Harold Pratt House of the Council on Foreign Relations, or in Wall Street corporate and bank board rooms, these old birds of a feather flocked, connived, schemed, and conspired together. McCarthy was one of their principal targets.
In the fascinating and absolutely compelling book by David Talbot, The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government, we find the following:
“In March 1954, McCarthy’s subcommittee convened a hearing on “alleged threats against the chairman.” One witness — a military intelligence officer named William Morgan who had worked for C. D. Jackson in the White House — stunned the subcommittee by recounting a conversation that he had the previous year with a CIA employ named Horace Craig. As the two men were discussing how to solve the McCarthy problem, Craig flatly stated, “It may be necessary to liquidate Senator McCarthy as was [assassinated Louisiana senator] Huey Long. There is always some madman who will do it for a price.”
And who was C. D. Jackson? Jackson was an expert on psychological warfare who served in the Office of Strategic Services in World War II and later as Special Assistant to the President in the Eisenhower administration. In 1960 he became publisher of Life magazine.
After Abraham Zapruder took the famous film in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Jackson purchased it on behalf of Time/Life to “protect the integrity of the film”… that is, to ensure the truth was kept from the American people.
While serving as chief analyst of military records at the Assassination Records Review Board in 1997, Douglas Horne discovered that the Zapruder Film was examined by the CIA’s National Photographic Interpretation Center two days after the assassination of President Kennedy.
In this film, Horne interviews legendary NPIC photo interpreter Dino Brugioni, who speaks for the first time about another NPIC examination of the film the day after the assassination. Brugioni didn’t know about the second examination and believes the Zapruder Film in the archives today is not the film he saw the day after the assassination.1:05 pm on August 4, 2016 Email Charles Burris
