I just finished reading a story about how CIA agents are moonlighting in the corporate world for companies like Goldman Sachs and other big names on Wall Street. It was a great read, I laughed my way through every word (and all four pages), then I stumble onto “Gumbo-gate“:
Last week’s breakin at Senator Mary Landrieu’s office in the New Orleans Federal Building was more than it seemed, much more. All of the 4 arrested had been trained by the CIA and, possibly, Israel. One arrested, Stan Dai, is listed as an Operations Officer of the Department of Defense Irregular Warfare Program and a known expert and lecturer on, not only surveillance but explosives training, assassinations and “false flag operations.” If you wanted a plane to crash, an enemy to get sick and die or a building to blow up, Dai would be the man to know how to make it happen. Problem is, his skills were being used as part of a criminal conspiracy inside the United States against members of our own government. [Keep Reading…]
Any body remember James O’Keefe from the ACORN Affair? Using a hidden camera, O’Keefe, accompanied by a young woman posing as a prostitute, shot videos in various ACORN offices where staffers appeared to offer illegal tax advice and to support the misuse of public funds and illegal trafficking in children.
The independent filmmaker who brought ACORN to its knees last year with an undercover expose was arrested this week along with three others, including the son of a federal prosecutor, and accused of trying to interfere with the phones at Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office. [Keep Reading…]
Yes, that’s our man, James O’Keefe, the conservative filmmaker who dressed as a pimp to sting the activist group ACORN. If he is convicted, he’ll no doubt tread the well-worn path of previous Republican criminals like Liddy and North and Colson. I expect he’ll have his own talk show within a few years.
FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes alleges that O’Keefe aided and abetted two others, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who dressed up as employees of a telephone company and attempted to interfere with the office’s telephone system. The FBI’s affidavit noted that Flanagan and Basel were in the building with O’Keefe, and a federal law enforcement official confirmed to AP that Dai was the one in the car.
Mr. Stan Dai was picked up in a car that was parked a few blocks away. He had a “covert receiver” with him which one can safely assume was being used to record the office bugs his buddies were attempting plant on the phone lines into the Senator’s office. One political commentary by Gordon Duff refer to this Dai person as “a highly trained operative” which put into my head the image of a middle-aged man sitting in a nondescript white van.
Dai, an immigrant from China, was president of the Conservative Student Union at George Washington University. In 2008, he was assistant director of an intelligence community “center for academic excellence” at Trinity Washington University.
“Stan Dai was a junior program administrator for one year in a grant-funded program at Trinity Washington University,” Ann Pauley, media relations director at Trinity Washington University. “The program was called the Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence (ICCAE).
Is it a conspiracy yet?
The arrest of Dai, has raised questions conspiracy and possible involvement of foreign governments all over the Internet. But a quick look a this this kid’s photo reveals he is still wet behind the ears, which makes me laugh when I read “highly trained operative.” Who are we kidding here?
In college, Stan Dai co-wrote a satirical work entitled The Penis Monologues, apparently a takeoff on the Vagina Monologues. I don’t know which is scarier. That the CIA would be involved in something like this. Or that the people they train are this stupid. A CIA trained operative tries to bug a senators office and records what he’s doing with a cell phone camera?
The CIA doesn’t teach its operatives how to hide a camera?
Walter Sobchak: You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You dont wanna know about it, believe me. The Dude: Yeah, but Walter... Walter Sobchak: Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 oclock this afternoon... with nail polish. These fucking amateurs...
why in hell would they want to tap Landrieu’s office for anyway?
As a series of reports called “The Family Jewels” reveal, the CIA has violated its charter from the 1950s onward. The reports reveal the CIA engaged in kidnapping, illegal wiretapping, surveillance of newspaper journalists, break-ins and warrantless entries, mail opening, assassination, amassing files on antiwar activists (Project RESISTANCE, Project MERRIMAC and Operation CHAOS), forging ID and documents in violation of state laws, and testing of electronic equipment on U.S. telephone circuits.
Knowing the history of the CIA has lead some to question whether or not these fools acting alone or if they were recruited by the CIA (or a foreign government) to wire-tap the Senator office in the New Orleans.
Operatives recruited in universities and managed thru conservative think tanks receive paid “vacations” to Israel and elsewhere, places where they are trained in silent killing, use of poisons, explosives and other potentially useful skills whether their career is in intelligence or politics. As with other terrorist suspects such as those who travel to Afghanistan for their training, these domestic types are funded covertly through the US government but, as we see in New Orleans, rented out to either Israel, India or the Republican party.
Is it a conspiracy let?
Last week, Veterans Today outlined the many high security projects being monitored from Senator Landrieu’s office which included, not only terrorist money laundering and other security issues but investigations targeting tens of billions of dollars being hidden offshore illegally by Americans, many with ties to Israel.
I don’t know about Israel, aren’t they busy harvesting organs in Haiti right now? Let see, who else could be behind this conspiracy? I can see this being tied to drug money. Everyone knows drug money saved banks in global crisis, maybe those Wall Street boy don’t want the world to know $352 Billion in criminal proceeds was effectively laundered by their financial institutions. Wait… we already know that… damn…. then again, maybe this whole thing is just a false flag op to make conservatives look bad.
But seriously, was this a highly trained CIA domestic black-op team?
or just a botched job by dumb and dumber?
If they were recruited–perhaps both–at least that is one theory. But wait a second, patsies don’t work as a team do they? Even the Watergate burglars had fake ID’s. And what was this crap about using a cell phone to capture the whole thing on video? No, these fools are way too obtuse to be either CIA or patsies. Sorry, I don’t buy it.
What do you think Wo?
I think Walter Sobchak nailed it.
