CIA Undermines North Korea Summit By Leaking Report To Media Asset

Authored by Elizabeth Lea Vos via Disobedient Media,

Just as it was reported that the summit between the United States and North Korea was back on and that Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea was on his way to New York to meet with officials in preparation for the June 12 summit, the CIA leaked an intelligence assessment concluding that “North Korea does not intend to give up its nuclear weapons any time soon.” The timing of this leak is striking, as it seems to be an effort to undermine negotiations between the two nations and comes just days after ranking members of the Democratic Party and Republican hardliners attacked President Donald Trump over his efforts to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The identity of the reporter who helped break the story also raises serious questions about whether or not a faction within the CIA deliberately attempted to undermine diplomatic efforts to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula. According to NBC News, the report was leaked to none other than NBC national security reporter Ken Dilanian, known as “The CIA’s Mop-Up Man.”

In 2014, The Intercept reported on Ken Dilanian’s correspondence and relationship with the CIA while Dilanian was a reporter for the Los Angeles Times.

According to The Intercept, “Email exchanges between CIA public affairs officers and Ken Dilanian, now an Associated Press intelligence reporter who previously covered the CIA for the Times, show that Dilanian enjoyed a close collaborative relationship with the agency, explicitly promising positive news coverage and sometimes sending the press office entire story drafts for review prior to publication. In at least one instance, the CIA’s reaction appears to have led to significant changes in the story that was eventually published in the Times.”

According to the Huffington Post, while writing for the Los Angeles Times, Dilanian also reported a CIA claim as fact by stating that “there was no collateral murder in a 2012 drone strike on Al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi.” Dilanian’s article was directly disputed in an Amnesty International report.

In the aftermath of the revelations about Dilanian’s ties to the CIA, he was disavowed by the Los Angeles Times. The disclosure of Dilanian’s collaboration with the CIA also led his former employer, David Lauter of the Tribune Washington to believe Dilanian could have violated Tribune news policy. Lauter acknowledged that Tribune policy dictates that reporters “not share copies of stories outside the newsroom.” Lauter further stated that he was “disappointed that the emails indicate that Ken may have violated that rule.”

Dilanian has not shied away from pushing articles written by former CIA officials who continue to perpetuate the “Trump-Russia” collusion narrative without any regard to facts, such as Steven Hall’s Washington Post article titled: “I was in the CIA. We wouldn’t trust a country whose leader did what Trump did.”

Wikileaks has also pointed out Dilanian’s agency connection and his pushing of the “Trump-Russia” collusion narrative, tweeting: “CIA’s ‘mop up man’ Ken Dilanian is the NBC ‘reporter’ used to channel claim about president Putin + US election.”

In the aftermath of recent revelations concerning the CIA’s collaboration with foreign intelligence agencies to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign during the 2016 US Presidential Election the fresh leaks continue to show a pattern of rebellion that has long run rampant in the US intelligence community. While the CIA’s apparent violations of ethical considerations concerning surveillance of candidates running for public office was serious enough, their interference drags the reputation of the agency to a new (and in the case of Korean peace negotiations, more dangerous) low amid their conflict with the sitting President of the United States.

However, despite these attacks, preparations between the two countries have continued for the upcoming June 12 summit. President Trump announced earlier today via Twitter that: “We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea. Meetings are currently taking place concerning Summit, and more. Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to New York. Solid response to my letter, thank you!”

A DIFFERENT thought.

What if it was Trump himself who asked the CIA to leak this.

Because he knows he won't get NOTHING from Kim that he would want, thus realizing he made a fool of himself and therefore preparing the PUBLIC in advance.

After all, unlike Middle East Policies TRUMP doesn't have Satanyahoo whispering in his ears to tell him EXACTLY what to do.

Artist's IMPRESSION of Satanyahoo RIDING Trump

I really believe they are in their death throes and these are last ditch efforts that will also fail.

Enough people know about MK Ultra and many probably at least will yield the possibility that some of these school shootings could be linked to a CIA program (sanctioned or not).

It would be amazing if NK really sought peace and unification of the peninsula. Plus the potential of a complete financial investment in the north mutually shared by China and the West. It would be another global GDP bump that could stave off the coming correction.

With the approach of the midterms, I believe the inspector general’s report will provide enough indisputable evidence (since most is already in the public realm) of major crimes of many current and former politicians on both sides the aisle, which will force Sessions to act (Mueller case folds with no evidence of collusion, some sacrificial lambs to even the scale, and potential cooperation with DOJ).

I could be cynical, but I rather have hope. The future will be better than today - for a lot of people.

North Korea has been run by the Deep State / CIA as a black ops country.  They employ the strategy of tension whenever peace and stability seems to be breaking out.

Donald J. Trump spoiled their party, it is already over.  The public exposure of same is what this latest "leak" is supposed to divert us from.  It will not work.

In 11 days the world will know the truth unless thy watch ABC or CNN

You are fucking retarded, Trump is the king of the swamp, the sock puppet of Jacob Rothschild, the creature of the swamp or Hillary with a penis. Trump is going to ruin nothing and he is not being played, it's you and the rest of the trumptards who are being played. The deep state loves the orange swine and all the fighting is staged. Are you aware of the fact that Ivanka Trump was dating Nathaniel Rothschild, Jacob Rothschild's son before marrying Kushner, are you aware that the Rothschilds bailed out Trump in the 90's via Wilbur Ross?


Go on refute the evidence.

Truman knew that he had given birth to a monster, only 1 year after he created the CIA...

Dwight D. warned us in 1961...

JFK warned us before his assassination at the hands of the same people... 

Senator Inouye warned of a secret government, with a secret army, secret navy and secret air force... 

Every POTUS since JFK has been in the back pocket of these people, that is until Trump... 

They've had 70 years of unfettered control of everything from elections to the drug trade... You think they are going to just give it up due to Trump's rhetoric? Don't bet on it...

The way the story goes, Trump was recruited by the military to become POTUS, in an effort to combat the other side of the evil coin, the intelligence communities... This is not MY narrative, but what is floating around in the ether... In reality, we have seen this play out in the ME with the US military siding with one faction that is in direct combat with another faction run by the CIA... The US funding and fighting on both sides of a dispute... So, Trump may not be the classic definition of a CIA puppet, but he's controlled by something just as dangerous, the MIC... Ever wonder why he is surrounded by Generals?

He's not big enough to be independent. His inability to create a protective inner circle of men and women capable of directing immediate change, or order and deliver deliver prompt investigations into obvious criminal practices, by members of the un-elected Deep State operatives occupying the halls of bureaucracy, shows that he has other people thwarting his promise to deliver the country back into the hands of the people. This isn't Trump's war against the State, it's ours. It will take more than voting ,because voting doesn't impact the bureaucrat.

It's The Money, Stupid!

Yes, basically true.  No one can name one positive thing the CIA has ever done for humanity. The organization protects elite business interests worldwide at the tax payers expense.  It was born out of the OSS and ESF to protect the rich.

Exactly what Trump has been doing.


Trump put Mike Pompous in at CIA to Drain the CIA Swamp & Fire & Prosecute the CIA leakers - and that's exactly what he did - hence his promotion to Secretary of State.


Now Trump has handpicked Gina Hairline to bed the FBI and Gina is Draining the CIA Swamp and Firing & Projecting leakers!!




Trust Trump

Trust Kansas

To state the obvious; the CIA has deeply humiliated the American people in their attempt to tie the American people to be responsible for the CIA's crimes against humanity across the world.


The CIA appears to be the world's greatest threat to peace and prosperity. It is the penultimate terrorist organization, being the direct or indirect creator of all other terrorist organizations. It also appears to be the world's penultimate illegal drug smuggler and pusher making all other illegal drug trading possible and instigating the horrors of addiction and suffering around the world.


If I believed that the CIA was working in any way on behalf of the US government and the American people then it would be sad and shameful indeed. However, it is my belief that the CIA instead was captured long ago, as was the secret military operations and now works for a hidden power that wants to dominate or failing that, destroy humanity.


It's those Select Highly Compartmentalized Criminal Pure Evil Rogue Elements at the Deep State Top that have had control since the JFK Execution that have entrenched themselves for decades & refuse to relinquish Control.


The Agency is Cancer. There should be no question about the CIA's future in the US.


Dissolved & dishonored. Its members locked away or punished for Treason. Their reputation is so bad and has been for so long, that the fact that you joined them should be enough to justify arrest and Execution for Treason, Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against The American People.

"Not everyone at the CIA is a criminal ...."


Just like "not all cops are bad"...

That argument doesn't wash anymore...

I've said it recently re. the FBI field agents calling to be subpoena'd...

"See Something-Say Something"

applies to ALL of us, including cops / fbi / cia & any other agency... 

I'm not advocating for a surveillence state here... I'm saying if you see injustice, wrongdoing or criminal / treasonous acts , you need to speak up...  😡😠

The CIA was not "captured". "US" intelligence begins with a group of Wall street privateers, as in pirates. Dubbed "the Room" as I recall. They morph into the Catholics in Action OSS, who knew all abt the Nazi ratlines through the Vatican and on to Sth America. This was Dulles' turf. Nothing said. They backed Mao v Chiang Kai-Shek and were probably the source of the intel to Kim I re the Inchon landings, which he either was too slow to do anything abt or thought it was a set-up. Bad to the bone.
