Conspiracy Roundup (16-11-2017)
Muckrock draws attention to CIA director William H. Webster’s Bohemian Grove Lakeside Talk found online in the CIA archives. The text of the speech has a page and a half of redactions at the point where Webster brags to the Grove attendees about the CIA’s successes for that year, exemplifying the double standard that the elite routinely are privy to classified or sensitive information while the public who pay for the intelligence services (and the spooks’ salaries) are routinely denied access and thwarted at every turn.
Also, check out Muckrock’s article “Five times the CIA archives went full Kojima,” about the CIA’s paranoia concerning psychic bombs, soviet superweapons, global surveillance networks, secret ex-spies networks, and super soldiers — all reminiscent of themes from the Metal Gear video game series.
