The Secret Government_ CIA Operations Part 1 (Sub)

Uploaded by Irzunn on 19.10.2008

A secret government is an interlocking network of official functionaries, spies,
mercenaries, ex-generals, profitiers and super-patriots
who for a variety of motives operate outside the legitimate institution of government.
Presidents have turned to them when they can't win the support of the congress or the people.
Creating that unsupervised power so feared by the framers of our contitution.
Just imagine that William Casey's dream came true.
Suppose the enterprise grew into a super-secret self-financing self-perpetuating organization.
Suppose they decided on their own to assassinate Gorbachev or the leader of white South Africa.
Could a president control them? And what if he became the enterprise's public enemy number one?
Who would know?
Who would say no?/
The history of our secret government..
World War II was over. Europe laid devastated.
The United States emerged as the most poweful nation on earth.
But from the rubble rose a strange new world.
A peace that was not peace. And a war that was not war.
We saw it emerging when the Soviet occupied Eastern Europe. The Cold War had begun./
An iron curtain has descended across the continent.
Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe./
The Russians had been our ally against the Nazis. An expidient alliance for the sake of war.
Now they were our enemy.
To fight them we turned to some of the very men who had inflicted on humanity
the horrors of Hitler's madness.
We hired Nazis as American spies.
We struck a secret bargain with the devil./
One that I know real well is Klaus Barbie.
He was wanted by the French as a number one war criminal
and somehow we employed a man like that as a very secretive informant./
Earhart Averinghouse(?) was employed in the US army counter intelligence core
and assigned to work with Nazi informants spying on the Russians.
One of them was Klaus Barbie "the Butcher of Lyon" Who had tortured and murdered thousands of Jews and resistance fires.
The Americans did not turn Barbie over to the French when they finished with him.
They helped him escape to Bolivia.
Other top Nazis were smuggled into the United States to cooperate in the war against the new enemy.
So begin the morality of the Cold War: anything goes.
The struggle required a mentality of permanent war.
A perpetual state of emergency.
And it made a vast new apparatus of power that radically transform our government.
It's foundation were laid when President Truman signed into law The National Security Act of 1947./
That National Security Act of 1947, changed dramatically the direction of this great nation.
It established the framework for a national security state./
Admiral Gene La Rocque rose through the ranks from (?) to become a strategic planner for the Pentagon
and now head of the Center for Defense Information, a public interest group./
The National Security Act of '47 gave us The National Security Council.
Never had we have a National Security Council so concerned about the nation's security
that we're always looking for threats and looking how to orchestrate our society to oppose those threats.
National Security was invented, almost, in 1947.
And now it has become the prime mover of everything we do is measured against something we invented in 1947.
The National Security Act also gave us the Central Intelligence Agency./
This is the house the Cold War built: The CIA.
The core of the new secret government.
It's chief legitimate duty was to gather foreign intelligence for America's new role as a world power.
Soon it was taking on covert operations. Abroad and at home.
As it's missions expanded the CIA recruited adventuresome young men, like Notre Dame's all American Ralph McGehee./
I looked back at the individual that I was when I joined the agency.
I was a dedicated cold warrior who felt the agency is out there
fighting for liberty, justice, democracy, and religion around the world.
And I believed whole heartedly in this.
Umm.. I just felt proud everyday that I went to work because I was out
at the vanguard of the battle against the international evil empire..
International communist evil empire./
Iran, 1953
The CIA mounted its first major covert operation to overthrow a foreign government.
The target was the prime minister of Iran, Mohammed Mosaddeq.
He held power legitimately through his country's preliminary process and he was popular.
Washington had once looked to him as the man to prevent a communist takeover.
But that was before Mosaddeq decided that the Iranian state, not British companies,
ought to own and control the oil within Iran's own border.
When he nationalized the British-ran oil fields, Washington saw red.
The secretary of state, John Foster Dulles, and his brother Allen, director of the CIA,
decided with Eisenhower's approval to overthrow Mosaddeq and reinstate the Shah of Iran.
The mobs paid by the CIA, and the police and soldiers bribed by the CIA
drove Mozadeq from office./
Crown Prince Abdullah greets the Shah as he lands at Baghdad airport after seven hour flight from Rome./
The King of Kings was back in control, and more pliable than Mosaddeq.
American oil companies took over almost half of Iran's production.
US arms merchants moved in with 18 billion dollars of weapons sales over the next 20 years.
But they were losers./
Nearly everybody in Iran of any importance has had a brother, or a mother, or a sister, or a son, or a father
tortured, jailed, deprived of property without due process.
I mean an absolutely buccaneering dictatorship in our name. That we supported.
Savak was created by the CIA./
Savak, the Shah's secret police, tortured and murdered thousands of his opponents.
General Richard Secord and Albert Hakim, whom we met earlier,
were among those who helped supply the Shah's insatiable appetite for the technology of control.
But the weapons an flattery he (?) America on the Shah blinded us to the growing opposition of his own people.
They rose up in 1979 against him
"death to the shah!" they shouted, "death to the American Satan!"/
Khomeini is a direct consequence and the hostage crisis is a direct consequence
and the resurgence of the shiahs is the direct consequence of the CIA's overthrow of Mozadeq in 1953
