The Pentagon Papers and Daniel Ellsberg represent an interesting slice of history, and some things that simply do not compute. This does tie in to current electoral politics, everyone’s obsession, so bear with me.
Go back to Watergate, and the initial burglary that set the whole affair in motion. The five men caught in the act were high-profile, and the burglary was crude and inept, as if they were meant to be caught.
It made no sense. One, party politics is of no great concern to high intelligence agencies, who operate above that milieu; and two, even assuming there was information inside Democratic headquarters that Nixon wanted, he knew how to get it. He would either plant a mole, or do a sophisticated break-in leaving no trace. If caught, the burglars would have no traceable ties back to him.
Nixon was not a fool. He did not order that burglary, and those who did were not fools or bunglers but rather intel ops who did it with the intention of being caught.
That set in motion the Watergate affair, a bloodless coup d’état. My own reading apart from everything leads me to believe that the man behind Watergate was George H.W. Bush. Nixon had agreed in 1968 to select him as VP in exchange for being allowed to be the nominee. Nixon, wanting life insurance (as Ronald Reagan learned, having Bush as VP is extremely dangerous), selected Spiro T. Agnew as VP, a move that surprised and infuriated Bush. And of course, prior to Nixon’s removal, Agnew was scandalized out of office in a separate and minor coup d’état, clearing the way for Nelson Rockefeller, who eventually stepped aside for Warren Commission member Gerald Ford.
But the thing that caught my eye and never made sense was the clumsy burglary. It was obviously staged. It reminded me of another one, that in 1974 of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist’s office. Again, it was extremely clumsy, and again, the operatives (E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy) were high-profile, high-skilled assets, and traceable to the Nixon White House. It was meant to be discovered. The effect, the release of Daniel Ellsberg, was most likely the intended result.
This means that Ellsberg was either a dupe or an agent himself, the latter most likely. And the effect of the whole episode was to introduce the Pentagon Papers into the record as real history. And that’s odd because within them is no mention of the most important event in postwar history, the JFK assassination.
So the Pentagon Papers affair was a PSYOP intended to rewrite history. The method used to assure that people would believe in them, the leak.
There’s a candidate for congress in Montana, Ryan Zinke, who claims to be a former Navy Seal, and is shooting off his mouth about Seal Team Six and the supposed murder of Osama bin Laden. Assume he is who he says he is: He is bound to secrecy. If he violates that oath, he can be imprisoned, suffer dishonorable discharge, lose pay, privileges and benefits, including health care, the reason most kids join the military. These people can and do keep secrets.
There is a book out by Team Six member Matt Bissonnette. Again, the same rules apply. If he was unauthorized, the book would have been censored, and if he attempted to publish anyway, he’d be severely punished. Because it appears as though he is an authentic source, even if unauthorized, we place more faith in his words, which are total bullshit.
Zinke and Bissonnette are part of a PSYOP designed to write false history into the public record, just as with the Pentagon Papers.
And again, what they do not talk about speaks volumes. Murder, she wrote.
