COI_Logo

On COI #46, Joanne Leon - Host of Around the Empire - returns to the show to talk about Biden's likely pick for CIA Director, Mike Morrell. Morrell was involved in lying the US into the Iraq War. While he admits he made mistakes in the lead-up to the war, he deflects responsibility for his role in forming the intelligence for Colin Powell's infamous UN speech. Kyle and Joanne discuss the Electoral College vote and how we got to this point.

COI_Logo

On COI#9, Kyle is solo as the show was struck with tech issues. Kyle covers an allegation published in Politico that Iran was planning to assassinate the US ambassador. The report was quickly debunked by South African intelligence. However, Trump is not opposed to assassinations as he wanted to take out the leader of Syria in 2017. Kyle explains how killing Assad would have been a boon to the jihadists. The Assange extradition hearing continues with the heroic Daniel Ellsberg taking the stand. Ellsberg explained the importance of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. Links YouTube – Conflicts of...

Russian Bounties Hoax Remains Unproved Because It’s Obvious Bullshit

NBC (CIA asset Ken Dilanian): Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of US CENTCOM, spoke with NBC News about the matter. “It just has not been proved to a level of certainty that satisfies me,” McKenzie said. “We continue to look for that evidence. I just haven’t seen it yet.” An unnamed military intelligence official also told NBC News that after reviewing the intelligence of attacks on US forces in Afghanistan over the past several years, none had been linked to any Russian bounty payments. In other news, anonymous sources say there is a report that says that Charlie Savage may have retired...

More Afghan Bounties Garbage

They admit they have no proof right in the big scary headlines: US intelligence indicates Iran paid bounties to Taliban for targeting American troops in Afghanistan Iran paid bounties for targeting US troops, intelligence reportedly suggests Since when do the Haqqanis need Iranian money to kill Americans?

NYT: ‘Was the intelligence tweaked by people seeking to hinder efforts to withdraw American troops?’

Can you believe these idiots? After two weeks of propaganda from their paper: "Other questions abound: When did the reported payments begin? Were they payback for American support of Afghan militants against Soviet troops there in the 1980s, or something else? Were the payments a factor in the deaths of any American or other coalition troops? Was the intelligence tweaked by people seeking to hinder efforts to withdraw American troops? Uh, yeah, good questions. Maybe you can assign Charlie Savage to investigate whether there is any truth to his story at all or whether it was leaked to him...

WSJ: NSA Says Russian Bounties Story is False

Journal: "The National Security Agency strongly dissented from other intelligence agencies’ assessment that Russia paid bounties for the killing of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, according to people familiar with the matter. "The disclosure of the dissent by the NSA, which specializes in electronic eavesdropping, comes as the White House has played down the revelations, saying that the information wasn’t verified and that intelligence officials didn’t agree on it. "Because of that, President Trump was never personally briefed on the threat, the White House said, although a key lawmaker...

How Confirmation Bias Works

Esquire: EVEN! Lindsey Graham and Liz Cheney believe the latest claims against Russia by anonymous "intelligence officials" (we don't even get to know what agency). So you see right there! That's how serious it is! When forced to choose between Trump and claims by nameless spooks -- Graham and Cheney picked the spooks! That can only mean one thing: It must be true! Wowee.

‘The Computer Got It Wrong’: How Facial Recognition Led To False Arrest Of Black Man

Check out this story from NPR about the false imprisonment of a man based on facial recognition technology. What's interesting to me is the first part of the headline: Ain't nobody's fault! The box did it! This is a theme heavily explored by the great Neil Postman in his book Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology, the diffusion of responsibility from those who possess political authority onto the sophisticated tools that they use to oppress us. As you'll see, the pigs went off the computer hit alone, did no other corroborative police work whatsoever before arresting this...
