17. This is... as usual for the perma-war/terror/fear state. It has been going on for decades. Invent a bogeymen, fund him, then kill him. All accompanied with rhetorical flourishes and fawning media attention.

But to even suggest such things, even though the record is clear, is to be group-scorned as a conspiracy nut. Who is nuts here, those who follow evidence, such as the Gary Webb's of the world, or those who refuse to see the nose on their face because it is so comforting to believe the oft-told bedtime story, the soothing narrative that paints the world in good guy/bad guy clarity.

Thanks for the post. It will go down the memory hole like most others of value.
