How the Media Won't Report on John Brennan's E-Mails


Not since the death of Osama bin Laden will the contents of a leading terrorist's e-mails have been subjected to such scrutiny (public, in this case).  Unlike Bin Laden, who led a non-state terrorist organization which in its latter years lacked any significant capacity to inflict damage on its stated enemy, the United States, Brennan is a high-ranking official in the security state that has over time shredded the rights of its own citizens, and heads the CIA, a highly active and destructive terrorist organization that has presided over global campaigns of torture, disappearance, and other crimes against humanity.  Brennan’s organization has repeatedly violated international law and has generated new threats to the public it claims to serve.

Brennan is best known for presiding over a series of terrorist attacks using predator drones that have claimed the lives of thousands of innocent civilians in South Asia, the Middle East, the Horn of Africa, and the Sahel.  The global public will undoubtedly read with interest the contents of his e-mails.  Brennan and other state terrorists in the regime, including past leaders like George W Bush and Dick Cheney, have been protected from prosecution by the failure of their country to sign many international legal accords, and by current President, Barack Obama, who has shielded the security state from scrutiny, while enhancing its capacity to commit acts of terror around the world in the name of the public interest, while failing to disclose how the global war of, on, and by terror relates to the bread and butter issues that occupy the minds of most Americans and other global citizens.


The complicity of many American officials, including a leading presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in decisions that led to the expansion of state terrorism makes it unlikely that Brennan and his colleagues will face accountability any time soon.

  1. You seem to be going soft in your old age, "Not since the death of Osama bin Laden will the contents of a leading terrorist's e-mails have been subjected to such scrutiny " What about Hilary Clinton's emails? Or maybe you don't think she's a terrorist? Maybe you are warming up to her.
