White House Admits CIA Director Brennan Was "Secretly" In Kiev

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Late last night we asked if, as the Russian media had reported and only the Russian media, CIA director John Brennan had secretly visited Kiev over the weekend: "Brennan landed in Ukraine on Saturday under an assumed name and held a "series of secret meetings" with the country's "power bloc" Interfax reported, citing an unidentified official in the Ukrainian parliament.  The person who said this to Interfax in a phone talk added that John Brennan came to Ukraine not under his real name.  According to some yet unconfirmed information, the decision to suppress protesters in Slavyansk, a city in Ukraine's east, with force was advised to Ukraine's authorities by Brennan."

One can further admit the meeting was "secret" - if only in initial intent - not only because of Brennan's assumed fake name (why the secrecy?) but because until Russian Interfax- of all places - had reported about what is certainly a key meeting in a nation in which disinformation and counterpropganda is not only rife but the last thread the current Kiev regime is hanging by - Brennan's meeting was completely unmentioned by the US press.

Until today, when moments ago White House speaker Jay Carner confirmed that indeed the CIA director was in Kiev last weekend.

From Reuters:

"We don't normally comment on the CIA director's travel but given the extraordinary circumstances in this case and the false claims being leveled by the Russians at the CIA we can confirm that the director was in Kiev as part of a trip to Europe," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.

 

According to media reports, Russia has urged Washington to explain what Brennan was doing in Ukraine.

 

"Senior level visits of intelligence officials are a standard means of fostering mutually beneficial security cooperation including U.S.-Russian intelligence collaboration going back to the beginnings of the post-Cold War era," Carney said.

 

"U.S. and Russian intelligence officials have met over the years. To imply that U.S. officials meeting with their counterparts is anything other than in the same spirit is absurd," he said

You know what's absurd? Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Or YouTube clips "proving" an Assad chemical weapons attack... which was organized and executed by NATO member Turkey with the blessing of rht US. Or the same CIA director showing up in a Kiev hotel under a fake name. Or for Interfax to have more credibility than US media outlets. 

You know what isn't absurd? Speculation that just like the CIA organized the overthrow of the Yanukovich regime, which has been confirmed courtesy of the Russian secret services leaking Victoria Nuland's very inconveient recording, so the recent escalation in east Ukraine is indeed the work of the CIA.

You know what won't be abusrd? If and when the Russians release another recording, this time of Brennan, proving that all the latest "Russian" propaganda is once again in fact, fact.

Lavrov-

 

The minister stressed that those who encourage Kiev's actions in applying force against protesters must be held responsible. "The decision to apply military force is an extremely dangerous development. Those, who encourage such actions in Kiev should be held responsible to the full extent," Sergei Lavrov said.

(emphasis mine)

I wonder who he was refering to?

As a sign of solidarity with the Ukrainians, Obama has decided to change his name to the equivalent Ukrainian word.

He is now to be called President Kuntka.

We look like fools to the rest of the world. Who can take us seriously when we're accusing Russia of interfering in the internal politics of Ukraine while we are sending the director of the CIA in for "secret" meetings.

What's it going to take for Obama to be impeached?

There are so many clueless fuckers leaving comments on MSM stories, it's mind-boggling. Just read one on Yahoo about the ex-pres of Ukraine blaming the CIA for this mess, and the comment section is full of idiots calling such an accusation unpossible. Now we have confirmation.

Meanwhile, I visited with my parents this weekend, and they still haven't heard anything about the Nuland recording on "the news." MSM propaganda is obviously doing its damnedest to make everyone rally behind Uncle Sam's bloody flag.

Use evidence with multiple sources and logic in your arguments.

Most are trapped by emotionalism and old habits and brainwashing.

I try not to completely write off any one, The time will come when even the clueless will 'get' that things aren't right.

If someone as block headed and stubborn as I was can see the light, anyone can.

No sense pissin' 'em off.  There have been a couple occasions when individuals (both ex-bosses) who told me I was batshit crazy later went out of their way to look me up to apologize.

Not that I feel vindicated- but their experience(s) caused them to remember, and reluctantly agree.  Better'n nuthin', right?

@ acetinker - - - "Better'n nuthin', right ?"

Absolutely

A few years back, I was plenty ready to hear about market manipulation and the funny 'money' system - because I could see the impact of that right in front of my eyes at my computer terminal.

But 9/11, the globalist NWO, Agenda 21, and the eugenics population reduction agenda was just 'too far out there' for me to hear.

I looked at the evidence and logical arguments with the idea of disproving 'such nonsense'.

But I ended up coming to the conclusion "Oh shit !  This stuff is real. The ones pushing this agenda forward are crazy psychopaths."

Samantha Power: "you don’t have to take my word for it, or even those of the Ukrainian government. You need only witness yourself the videos of professional military shepherding thugs into a building in Kramatorsk, the photographs showing the so-called concerned citizens taking over Sloviansk equipped exactly like the elite troops that took Crimea, or the video of a military operation in Krasny Liman by armed men with the same equipment."

So forget presenting facts, now it's our job to watch some youtube videos and carry out DIY geo-political analysis of whether some images constitute actions of "elite troops" or not so much?! What's going on with these people? Are they for real?

US warmongers know that they could easily convince the American public that it's time for yet another war.  In fact, it probably won't take any convincing.  The average American's knowledge of Russia is limited to old war movies and cheap vodka.

And considering that half of America has an IQ below average (I'm being generous), you might as well file that tax extension to see how things play out.
