The Real NewsPosted: March 24, 2017
The Russia hacking story distracts from real and important issues surrounding the CIA and its future in U.S. policy.
One of those real issues is that the CIA has consistently lied to the American people for many, many years. Why would Trump conclude that CIA Director Brennan was spouting fake news? Well, in the past 15 years, the CIA said that it was not torturing its prisoners. That was a lie.
The CIA said that it had not created an archipelago of secret prisons where it was holding hundreds of people, including innocent civilians. That was a lie.
The CIA said that it had not created and used a dungeon torture center called the “Salt Pit” in Afghanistan. That was a lie.
The CIA said that it was not sending prisoners to third world countries to undergo torture with a wink and a nod from the CIA’s leadership. That was a lie.
The CIA said that it had not hacked into computers belonging to investigators of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence while they were writing the definitive report on the CIA torture program. That was a lie.
