CIA Teams Up With Defense Industry To Undermine Korea Negotiations

Via Disobedient Media

In a new development that will shock no one, factions within the CIA attempted for the second time in just over a month to undermine President Trump's peace overtures towards North Korea by leaking information calculated to decrease confidence in Kim Jong Un's willingness to earnestly negotiate.

On June 29, 2018, NBC News released a report quoting anonymous CIA officials who claimed that North Korea was increasing nuclear production at "secret sites" without providing any actual evidence for such claims. The report's credibility is further weakened by the fact that it also cited reports from a think tank which has strong connections to the defense industry and other private special interests.

In disseminating their report, the CIA used NBC reporter Ken Dilanian as an outlet for leaks. As Disobedient Media previously reported, Dilanian was outed by the Intercept in 2014 as a CIA asset. In the aftermath of the disclosure, Dilanian's previous employers at the Tribune Washington and Los Angeles Times disavowed the disgraced journalist. In at least one instance, the CIA’s instructions to Dilanian appears to have led to significant changes in a story that was eventually published in the Los Angeles Times.

Since that time, Dilanian has persisted in 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.”

In the absence of hard evidence from the CIA to back their claims about North Korea, Dilanian cited the opinion of Clinton administration official Joel Wit and reports from 38north.org. 38north is a project run by the Henry L. Stimson Center. The Stimson Center's Board of Directors includes individuals associated with organizations such as Northrop Grumman, the Boeing Company, Warburg Pincus, the Carnegie Endowment, Mercy Corps, The Council on Foreign Relations, the Department of Defense, the CIA and US Department of the Treasury. Their Partners include the George C. Marshall Foundation, Saudi Arabia's Gulf Research Center and the Jinnah Institute.

Satellite images circulated by 38north claiming to show improvements to North Korea's Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center appear to have been obtained from Airbus Defense and Space SAS, a subsidiary of European multinational conglomerate Airbus Group SE. Airbus was the brainchild of Germany's DaimlerChrysler Aerospace and British Aerospace. The association of a German connected transnational group in efforts to undermine Korean peace negotiations is interesting given the strong connections they held with the now scandalized South Korean government of Park Geun-hye.

The involvement of a think tank in a website that is centered around undermining US confidence in North Korea is hardly a surprise given their connections to the military-industrial complex and internationalist special interest groups. Both Northrop Grumman and Boeing have seen their stock's value drop in the aftermath of Trump's Singapore meeting with Kim Jong Un in what analysts saw as a temporary setback to defense stocks. Seeing such corporations use their ties to institutions such as the Stimson Center to collaborate with the CIA in an effort to scuttle commitments to North Korean denuclearization and a peace accord between the Koreas and United States represents a new low.

Despite the best efforts of the CIA, President Trump has stated that there is no current nuclear threat from North Korea, and that the Singapore Summit represented a positive interaction with the leader of the so-called "hermit kingdom." Trump has repeatedly highlighted the opportunity for Chairman Kim to engage with the world and begin a new era of "security and prosperity" for North Korea. North Korea destroyed portions of their test site at Punggye-ri before a group of foreign journalist observers in the lead up to the US-North Korea summit on June 12.

Oh dear, here we go again: if Trump fucks up then it's never because Trump is a complete fucking idiot who has no clue what he's doing, but it's all the CIA's/MIC's fault.

Question: so why does Trump surround himself with CIA (Pompeo) and MIC (Bolton, Mattis) Deep State Swamp creatures?

I guess everybody already knows the answer, but most Trumptards are in a serious state of denial. Remember Trumptardies: 'this time it's really, really, really, and I mean really (Scout's honour!) different.' /sarc

I can’t argue with that.

Same dynamic behind the invasion of the US by the Vatican’s peasant army - US government appears very internally conflicted/weak.

If nothing decisive is done, wars abroad will prove of no consequence; a wave of ever-larger migrant tsunamis will crush the US, as all of Latin America bum-rushes/dogpiles on the American taxpayer’s back... US will collapse.

" Trump leadership once again proven poor. Cant control his own government."

What if you became President of the most compromised country on Earth and you just want to make it better?

First, you would need to get elected ... CHECK.
Then you will need to get rid of ALL the Criminals ... working ... working ... working (there's a lot)
Then you will need good Constitutional SC judges ... working ...
After that you will need to charge and prosecute all of them at once (they will scatter otherwise) - Huber - 45,000 indictments (is that normal?)
Finally, patriots will have to back POTUS with their lives, rebuffing attacks by the left.

Post log: Lefties will have to be deprogrammed ... start in grade schools and entertainment industry.

You are right.  We, the more awake, are charged with holding it all together when the shit hits the fan.  We need to stay together, as couples, as families, as communities.  They would have us splinter into division, so we cannot object to the enslavement.

When the 45,000 (growing at 5,000 per mo as we speak) indictments are unsealed, our friends and neighbours will have a very hard time dealing with the shock, with the uncontrovertible evidence that those they have believed in are crooks, murderers, child abusers and satanists.  

We are the ones who have to support them through the initial shocks, then the long road back needs to be travelled in good heart.

Can't understand why Haspel and company can't control their employees? Trump should disband the CIA immediately along with the FBI and DOJ. The fucking tail is wagging the dog in everyone of those agencies so just get rid of them and start new with fresh blood!

Disbanding may require some more time to unravel all the shit they're involved in.  Plus if you tried it now you would have all of MSM howling about how he is putting us at risk by interfering with the people that keep us safe (with plenty of false flags to prove the point).

Keep in mind, it's not just CIA/FBI.  It's the intel agencies of Five Eyes and other countries working together (on behalf of international bankers and puppet masters) against the citizens and elected governments of all nations.

So you have to allow them to exist for now but gradually take away their power and funding until they are weak enough to be shut down for good. A good first step would be to start declassifying all the documents that expose their corruption for all the world to see.  The people need to understand what these secret orgs are really all about so no one will believe them when they claim to be keeping us safe...

They can't control what they don't know about.  Remember, everything in those agencies is stovepiped and the people at the top have to take the word of a pyramid of underlings who often have very self-centered agendas (and big budgets to boot).

 

I agree Trump should fire 90% of the top management at most of the IC agencies and he'd be better off.  Flatten the management structure and make gubmint employees more accountable.  No more gubmint employee unions, either.  Get Congress to pass a law stating that ALL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT IS AT-WILL.  He should have done that in his first month in office and he'd have been better off.

"Congress to pass a law stating that ALL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT IS AT-WILL " They should also pass laws that all gubmint employees and politicians either resign or submit to mandatory brain scan to identify all psychopaths and sociopaths. Once they are identified, determine the best way forward to minimize the damage these people cause. Perfect example John Bolton

No, not just fresh blood. A whole new approach to their jobs.

Above all, CIA must give up active operations, including placing spies. We cannot be a trusted country if we run assassinations, etc.

CIA analysis functions can be replaced with open source intelligence analysis.

NSA is absolutely prohibited from collecting information from the internet. NSA's remaining sigint  goes to the military.

FBI can't be allowed to use informants, they use them to set up people for blackmail. 20,000 full-time informants is crazy.

We need to abolish almost all Federal crimes, only crimes that truly affect the entire nation. That will restrict the FBI's scope.
