Confessions of a Covert Agent
Psychological Operations is my specialty. PsyOps.
Everything I’ve done has been highly classified, all black programs
and black operations. Some people I know thought I worked for the CIA,
but it’s much more complicated than that. I’ve worked with people in
the CIA, DIA, NSC, NSA, SAIC, Army Intel and many more lesser known
agencies within the intelligence apparatus.
Before focusing on PsyOps I started out running covert combat
missions, special operations. I was good at what I did and rose
through the ranks fast. When the “War on Terror” started I was paid a
lot of money to consult with private military contractors. When
private paramilitary units needed to get the jobs done that paid the
most money they would come to me with checkbooks filled with US
I’ve seen the worst things imaginable, hell on earth. Had friends die
in my arms. Seen piles of rotten corpses. Seen men, women and children
tortured. I’ve seen the eyes of terrified and confused children being
sold into a vicious life of slavery and an early death.
I could get a lot more graphic, but you get the idea.
That was my life, and all along I was told that I was fighting for
freedom and working for the “good guys.” What a ridiculous comment
that is! In the black world, that is, in the covert world, there
aren’t any “good guys” — just varying degrees of evil.
As Brigadier General Butler famously stated, “War is a racket.” It
doesn’t have anything to do with freedom and democracy. It is not good
fighting evil. There’s just a bunch of old greedy gangsta
motherfuckers making obscene amounts of cash and breeding hatred,
violence, terrorists and sex slaves.
The truth is, there is no oversight! Meaning, you can get away with
anything, nothing is illegal because no one knows about it, or the few
who do are either in on it or have a vested interest in keeping quiet.
Whether you’re runnin’ guns, weapons, drugs, gold, diamonds, women,
children, it just doesn’t matter. As long as the old guard gets their
resources, it’s all good. And in the end, it’s all about power. The
people who really run this planet know that natural resources (oil,
water, coltan, cobalt, etc.) are the key. The “War on Terror” is just
a front for a geo-strategic resource grab on a massive scale. Even the
wars in Northern Africa are all about exploitation of resources. Once
the good ole CIA boys at Bechtel did their NASA satellite studies of
the Democratic Republic of Congo‘s (DRC) mineral resources and
discovered that it was the “richest patch of earth on the planet,” all
hell broke loose! They figured out that the DRC has 80% of the world’s
coltan, among many other vital resources. Without coltan, you can’t
have any technology that requires a computer chip: computers, cell
phones, satellites and weapon systems, of course. So Bechtel, the
CitiBank boys, the World Bank, IMF and various covert elements have
been supplying brutal regime after brutal regime in the region. Well
over four million and counting have died there.
Same thing with oil in the Middle East. Do you think they really give
a shit about Iraqi freedom? We worked hard to make you believe that,
but c’mon, they don’t give a shit about the Iraqi people. They’ve
killed about a MILLION of them! And that’s NOT an exaggeration! They
sure as hell give a shit about Iraqi oil though. They also care about
Saudi oil, and have a nice deal with a dictatorship that brutally
oppresses their people. If freedom and democracy are the issue, how
about freeing the Saudi people? Why do you think 15 of the 9/11
terrorists came from Saudi Arabia? We support a regime that oppresses
those people. We support them because they cooperate on the oil front.
So, why strike back at them? Let’s hit Iraq. They don’t give us any
oil – let’s get’em!
If you look at the history of covert special operations, it’s all
about securing a piece of land that has some valuable resource. Once
the resource is identified, special ops figures out the most efficient
way to suppress or extinguish the population that is unfortunate
enough to live near it. Then the big companies come in, from the
United Fruit Company to the Bechtels and Halliburtons of the world.
That is the way it has been and still is, from John D. Rockefeller and
Allen Dulles right through Kissinger, Bush Sr. and Cheney. Millions of
innocent civilians have been slaughtered. Let me repeat that: Millions
of innocent civilians have been slaughtered. And I’m not kidding you.
These are evil motherfuckers and they are no friends of ours. These
things don’t have anything to do with protecting the US people or
standing up for freedom and democracy. They don’t give a shit about
the average American. In this age of the global economy, the concept
of nation state is obsolete. If only proud Americans could understand
that. Pride in the American way is just another propaganda device for
PsyOps agents — people like me — to use to manipulate you and make you
think that black is white and white is black.
If you were to ask me who is a bigger threat to the people of the US,
Cheney or bin Laden, or who has done more damage to the US, I would
say Cheney without hesitation. Cheney, along with Bush Sr. and
Kissinger, has been running the covert world for about 40 years now.
A little side note for you: I firmly believe Robert Gates, the current
Secretary of Defense and Bush Sr.’s right-hand man in the covert
world, used computer cryptography and software security assets to get
Bush Jr. elected both times. I do not have direct knowledge of the
operation, but research “Robert Gates,” “Bill Owens,” “electronic
voting security,” “HAVA,” “VoteHere” and “Scientific Applications
International Corp.” [We will post more on this in the near future.]
The operation went so well that Gates was going to be made the first
ever Director of National Intelligence. He turned down the job, but
then took the Secretary of Defense position when Rumsfeld was removed
from his public position. I don’t think there will ever be solid
evidence linking directly to members of the administration; it’s all a
tangled web of plausible deniability. But I do think it will
eventually be proven that the elections were manipulated to deliver
Bush the victory. Many people in the covert world take this for
granted, as common sense.
Please don’t confuse this as partisan propaganda. I don’t give a shit
about the Democrat or Republican PsyOps mind-fuck dynamic. They’re
just labels to divide a potentially powerful united US public.
It’s hard to get the average American to understand these things. Most
everyone in this country has been mind-fucked since birth. For a very
blatant example, you can look at the advertising industry and the way
they have increased intensely their focus on the youth. It’s all about
breeding impulsive emotionally driven consumers through repetition –
over and over again – buy, buy, buy. You hear something enough and you
internalize the message. It becomes something like the air you
breathe, like gravity. It’s there, omnipresent, but you don’t realize
it or consciously think about it. It becomes the spring from which
your thoughts leap forth.
What it all boils down to is the exposure rate. You take a simple
message and you repeat it over and over, such as mentioning Saddam and
9/11. You don’t have to say Saddam was involved in 9/11, because that
is not true. You just have to mention Saddam and 9/11 in the same
simple repetitive message thousands of times and people will support
an attack on a country that didn’t have anything to do with 9/11
because they’ve been psychologically conditioned to link the two.
It’s psychological operations on a grand scale, mass psychology. The
scientific art of manipulating public opinion is 100 years old now.
PsyOps have evolved to the point, thanks to the all pervasive mass
media, where we can make you believe, or at least passively accept,
whatever we want you to. I secretly worked with the world’s most
powerful media companies to get you to believe what “they” want you to
believe. The media is the most efficient weapon of tyranny and
oppression ever created. No need to physically control populations
anymore when you can do it mentally – program it in, internalize the
To give a little more background on publicly revealed psychological
operations, in 1977, after the Congressional Church Committee
investigated CIA manipulation of the news media, and right after
George Bush Sr. left his post as the Director of the CIA, famed
Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein searched a little deeper into what
was known as Operation Mockingbird. He revealed that over 400 US
journalists were actually carrying out clandestine CIA PsyOps
services. Bernstein identified operations involving almost every major
US news outlet, most notably The New York Times, CBS and Time
magazine. The CIA responded to all of this with a “limited hangout.” A
“limited hangout” is CIA speak for when classified information gets
out and you have to make it seem as if you are “coming clean” with all
the information on the operation, but in reality you are really just
admitting part of the operation so you can cover up other deeper parts
and continue the program. This worked very effectively for them, as
the US public quickly moved on and this operation has largely been
forgotten. Currently, I would estimate, with cable news and the
Internet now, that there are well over a thousand covert operatives
spread throughout the news media. They have a firm grip on television,
newspapers, wire services, radio and magazines. However, with the
Internet – that’s their weak spot – it’s too decentralized and
difficult to control.
The Pentagon’s Information Operations Roadmap now describes the
Internet as an enemy “weapons system.” The Pentagon doesn’t hide the
fact that they want total control over information, or as they call it
“information dominance.” They very plainly state that they seek to
“control land, sea, space and information.” This is what they refer to
as “full spectrum dominance.” If you don’t think they see this as a
top priority, look at Iraq. The plan to “embed” journalists with the
military in Iraq was a strategic operation that considered “journalism
as part of psychological operations.” The journalists that weren’t
“embedded” were considered “enemy combatants.” More journalists have
been killed in Iraq than in any other war, and it is the US doing a
large portion of the killing.
Before I go too far here, the point I want to make to the US public,
the bottom line is that the most power crazed and greed addicted
people are above the law and get away with everything. In the covert
world rules do not apply. Democracy is a fairy tale. Nothing is what
it seems, reality isn’t real. Through the looking glass Alice goes.
I’ve fought against it and got nowhere. I’ve informed people that I
naively thought could do something, but nothing could be done. I took
all the blood money I’ve made and donated it to humanitarian causes.
Will it make a difference? No. Not in the grand scheme of things, but
in the short run it may save a few people… maybe. And that’s all I can
hope for at this point.
I’ve become so cynical! I live with guilt and cynicism weighing on my
every move, my every thought.
When you’ve seen the things I have seen, been involved with the things
I’ve been involved with, when you’ve spent the majority of your life
living like I have, what do you do when you decide to give it up and
get out? Can you ever get out?
I was able to get out, thus far, when no one I knew thought I could
get out. But once you lived in the covert world, “normal” civilian
life feels like a prison sentence. Then again, the covert world was a
I’ve been strongly advised to keep a very low profile and forget about
things for a while. But I find it hard to just fade into the night
when we are reaching an event horizon, a breaking point. Despite my
cynicism, there is a part of me that knows I have to keep fighting.
The stakes are just too high, higher then they’ve ever been. The human
species is in serious trouble, facing a set of crises unlike anything
we’ve ever faced before. Unless these covert forces are exposed, and
ultimately eliminated, I don’t see how we can even begin to make the
bold actions that we need to start making now – and I mean right
fucking now! These covert forces are a root cause and driver, a cancer
spreading through the system and planet.
As far as I can tell, you can’t change the system from within the
intelligence community itself. This includes the Senate Intel
Committee. If the urgently needed changes are ever to happen, it has
to come from the US public. Now I know first hand how the American
public has been conditioned to be apathetic and not get involved in
politics and has been fed a steady diet of misinformation. But
propaganda only works to the point where the population being
propagandized is not feeling the direct impact and negative
consequences on a personal level in their daily lives. That’s why the
draft played a large role in bringing an end to Vietnam. We need
another draft to push the mainstream over the edge and into action,
but the façade is beginning to crack – 9/11 had some effect, the war
in Iraq certainly, Katrina, massive job loses and an economic downturn
that has really just begun have all factored into creating a critical
mass. Even the most propagandized population in the history of
civilization will have to act when their very survival and well-being
is directly threatened and impacted. I just hope enough people will
understand the need for bold decisive action now, before it’s too late.
So, to the people who have awareness of the problems facing us, if I
could give advice, it would be this:
1. Try the Bush Administration for war crimes. If the case could
ever be brought to court, the evidence to convict is definitely there.
This is why the administration has been strongly against the
International Criminal Court. If we are to begin repairing this
country, and the world, we must begin by showing these power crazed
and covert forces that they are accountable. If we can convict someone
like Cheney, we will send a powerful message to the covert world. If
we let them walk, we will keep having these problems. New people will
follow them and take their place.
2. Investigate where all the military spending has been vanishing
off to. There are literally trillions of taxpayer dollars unaccounted
for. This money is fueling the covert world and terrorism in general.
As part of this, I would include an investigation into war
profiteering as well.
3. Make it mandatory that all electronic voting machines must have
a 100% verifiable paper trail.
4. Get people into the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) who
will smash the current media ownership rules. The concentration of
media ownership is the foundation of the covert power structure.
Without that, the whole thing is a house of cards. That’s why the FCC
is currently trying to ram through rules that will further consolidate
media ownership before the Bush administration leaves office. As part
of this, it is pivotal that we protect the open architecture of the
Internet. The media belongs to the people, as does the government, in
theory anyway, but we need an information system that actually serves
the public interest.
5. Declare a national and global emergency on the environmental
front. We have already reached the breaking point. We need organized,
governmental, policy driven, bold action now.
6. We need to address entities that now have power over the
Constitution, such as the undemocratic and unelected corporate global
governing structure – institutions like the World Trade Organization
(WTO) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and “agreements” like
NAFTA and DR-CAFTA, to name a few. Most Americans don’t even know what
these power structures are, let alone that they have power that
supersedes the Constitution. We must also address the National
Security Act, that’s where the ultimate power of our country lies. The
National Security Act has effectively made the Constitution
meaningless and is the primary driver of the covert world. The PATRIOT
Act and various other newly granted powers must also be drastically
revised or eliminated completely in order to protect our civil liberties.
7. Lastly, we need to have publicly financed elections. As long as
we have a system that requires candidates to raise tens of millions of
dollars to even be considered for office, we will have politicians who
bend over backwards for the richest one percent and the most powerful
elements of society at the citizens’ expense. An important aspect of
this has to be a requirement for large media companies to provide
candidates with free airtime. Candidates have to spend the majority of
their money on advertising in the mainstream media. That’s why the
major news media spend so much time focusing on who is raising the
most money, because they are the ones who end up with all that money.
Once we have publicly financed elections and free airtime for
candidates, we will get people in office who will work in the
interests of the public because they are not beholden to the large and
powerful entities. When you have politicians depending on the public
instead of the private sector for survival, all the issues mentioned
above could be addressed because they won’t have to fear the
withdrawal of support from large corporations and the wealthy and
powerful who do not want these things to happen. This will also enable
us to eliminate tax breaks for the richest one percent, put an end to
corporate welfare practices, and stop funding for obscene military and
prison industrial companies that are profiting off of disasters and no
longer serve security interests. Then we can redirect that money into
environmental, education, health care and social security programs, to
mention a few.
In the current political environment this may all sound like an
unrealistic pipe dream, but these are the seven pivotal things that
MUST happen. If all seven don’t happen within the next few years, we
will have set the world on a disastrously irreversible course. This is
“the unfortunate reality of our current situation.” It is not going to
be easy, but you better start fighting for it now, while we still can.
It really does come down to us. You have to personally, in your daily
life, do everything you can. With enough public pressure all of these
things are achievable. Once we get a small portion of the population
acting in this direction, it will quickly catch on and spread. Even
though the overwhelming majority of the US population is incredibly
propagandized on the surface, just underneath is the realization of
the need for mass action. They just need leaders to point this out.
The mainstream just needs a spark. Do what you can to set it off. It
is a matter of unprecedented significance.
