Did CIA Director William Casey really say, "We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false"?
According to Barbara Honegger who was there when Ronald Reagan first met with William Casey it is an accurate quote but there’s always context to shade a meaning. Nonetheless trust in Government of any persuasion is long gone.

Do I trust the source is my next question so Casey’s comment has served its purpose.
Musing on what I may or may not know to be true and false flag operations come to mind. No doubt they’re carried out by many a country but it’s the U.S.S. Liberty incident which immediately pops into view literally as youtube kindly ‘suggests’ it – probably due to algorithms but who knows.
If you’re not familiar with this shameful incident in which Israel attacked the U.S.S. Liberty – basically a spy ship – and Lyndon Johnson, scurvy rogue President, turned his back on his own countrymen rather than offend Israel with an expose of the affair. To the dismay of both countries the ship and some crew survived to tell the tale.
this is essentially an apologetic for the incident. A ‘nothing untoward’ piece delivered with sincerity. Suggests that it was all a mistake.
this is the testimony of someone who was there on the ship when the attack happened. It wasn’t a mistake.
Johnson followed Kennedy as President and the papers regarding the Kennedy assassination which were due to be released by Trump didn’t occur. Trump thought them too dangerous, too revealing, it hardly matters what his excuse was, the result is more secrecy. Why and who is it that needs to be protected after all this time.
Why would anyone trust in politicians. Sincerity counts for nothing if, unwittingly, one has become a mouthpiece for lies. Witness the ‘weapons of mass destruction’ nonsense which preceded the war in Iraq. Failure of intelligence? Whose intelligence? Yours – mine?
The war for the hearts and minds continues apace and, apart from 9/11 research, it’s the history of Central Banks and in particular the birth of the Federal Reserve which occupied my attention. Privately owned although you and I can’t buy shares and it’s neither Federal nor Reserve.
Woodrow Wilson was President at the time and this is what he said regarding the Federal Reserve:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world - no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” … said by Woodrow Wilson after signing the Federal Reserve into existence.
There is of course dispute over whether or not he said it however the salient fact here is that the Federal Reserve IS privately owned.
Hmm. Something to ponder.
Something more cheerful to finish off – Michael Sheldrake “Science set free.”
Meanwhile La Nina continues, the garden is sodden but is as prepared for summer as can be managed … and I find time to continue my education with BritainsHiddenHistory – remarkable that this history, hidden though it’s been, parallels that of Aboriginal Australia and Indigenous cultures worldwide.
and then there's this as food for thought
