Patreon-only: how the CIA controls the media & why former CIA directors are the same mean, loud, cigar-smoking, wife-cheating. https://www.patreon.com/posts/56317591 Former CIA analyst and case officer, who blew the whistle on its torture program, breaks down the newly declassified FBI document on the Saudi connection to 9/11 so that people who haven't been in the CIA or FBI can understand what the hell it says. The report was declassified by Biden. John Kiriakou (https://twitter.com/JohnKiriakou) is a former CIA analyst and case officer, and counterterrorism consultant. Upon leaving the CIA, Kiriakou was the first whistleblower to reveal the torture policy practiced by the US government. While employed by the CIA he was involved in critical counterterrorism missions following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He refused to be trained in “enhanced interrogation techniques” and never authorized or engaged in these, however he is the only person to have served prison time for revealing that there was a torture program. He was the 6th whistleblower indicted by the Obama administration under the Espionage Act, a law that was supposed to punish spies not whistleblowers.
