COUP D'ETAT: The Real Reason Tenet and Pavitt Resigned
http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/060804_coup_d...

JUNE 8, 2004 1600 PDT (FTW) - Why did DCI George Tenet suddenly resign on June 3rd, only to be followed a day later by James Pavitt, the CIA's Deputy Director of Operations (DDO)?

The real reasons, contrary to the saturation spin being put out by major news outlets, have nothing to do with Tenet's role as taking the fall for alleged 9/11 and Iraqi intelligence "failures" before the upcoming presidential election.

Both resignations, perhaps soon to be followed by resignations from Colin Powell and his deputy Richard Armitage, are about the imminent and extremely messy demise of George W. Bush and his Neocon administration in a coup d'etat being executed by the Central Intelligence Agency. The coup, in the planning for at least two years, has apparently become an urgent priority as a number of deepening crises threaten a global meltdown.

2. Hey even if it's not true

... sounds like a great Hollywood movie.

Harrison Ford as the CIA insider orchestrating the actions....

Gary Oldman as the President...

and Dennis Hopper as VP....

and Matt Damon as the journalist who discovers it all.......

The Sum Of All Fears II!

3. his stories always seem to involve former naval intelligence officers

Okay, now I'm further into the story, and wow, it alledges the CIA forged the Niger documents in order to entrap Bush and the neocons. That's pretty intense.

13. I thought it was saying the administration and some DISGRUNTLED
(re: Poppy bush's crowd) former CIA officers are the ones who forged the documents.... or had them forged by some Italian guy...whatever. At any rate, I thought what Rupert was saying was that it was this "other" group of CIA who were in with the administration that did the dirty deed. That, to me, also pointed to Poppy and his friends.

Which is why I'm wondering about Poppy's scheduled parachute jump next week at the age of 80.

4. Great if true, but I don't know anything about this web site.
I would think there would be more suppositions like this on some others if there were any real truth to this story.

10. My take on Rupert's work
very well documented in terms of sourcing information from other publications and putting things together on sound sources. Can follow up a lot of interesting stories (going to the sources) from this work.

Interesting, if not a tad slanted, analysis.

Sloppy writing on his own. Makes egregious factual errors, which unfortunately can make the rest read a little spurious. There were several such errors (on things that shouldn't be missed) in this article. One in particular has Bush as CEO of Harken before he sells stock and goes to baseball. Bush was a CEO of two (failed) companies, the second - before it folds - gets bought up (and it was worthless - the transaction was about buying access to the president through the son)... they put Bush on the Board - give him a salary for a year or so... then stop giving him salary just a stipend for his position on the Board. He serves on the audit committee - and is present when serious problems are disclosed - he sells his stock in a manner long reeking of insider trading.. and then buys into the baseball team. Only reason it is a problem - is when he gets very basic (and well known) facts wrong - it cuts into the credibility in other areas.

None the less his work is always worth reading, follow up the sources, and pondering.

5. I advise all to read the whole darn thing, things sorta began to fall in..
place. Even if it is a bit long, we grow too used to Pablum.

Do you remember the point, in America, at which the "press" actually started asking real questions of GW, and not being so docile? It was as if all at one time, this began. I read the InTheWilderness article, and remembered how many CIA agents are supposedly embedded in the media.

6. Fabulous, fabulous
article. I sincerely hope the author's assessment of the dissent in the CIA and government in general towards these phonies is accurate.

7. Another snippet from deep inside the article ..
"On this subject, I spoke with an experienced former federal prosecutor who works in Washington, specializing in white collar criminal defense (but who does not know Sharp). That attorney told me that he is baffled by Bush's move - unless Bush has knowledge of the leak. "It would not seem that the President needs to consult personal counsel, thereby preserving the attorney-client privilege, if he has no knowledge about the leak," he told me."


Hmmmmm :think:

9. tinfoil hat meltdown
This coup's been in the works for 2 years? And Bush and Scalia's coup was in 2000. And the coup that brought Clinton down? Oh yes. The great rightwing conspiracy. I almost forgot about them.

I've connected so many dots my paper has no white space left.

What a mess they've made of our country.

I think I'm going coup coup!
