5/25/2010 - The INQUIRY was America's first
Central Intelligence Agency. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, and
Woodrow Wilson's close political advisor and friend, Edward Mandel House,
suggested the idea to Wilson. House became the INQUIRY's first director, Walter
Lippmann was House's first recruit. The existence of the INQUIRY such a well
kept secret, that to this day hardly any Americans have heard of the INQUIRY or
are aware that it ever existed. Wilson paid for the INQUIRY from the President's
Fund for National Safety and Defense. He directed that it not be housed in
Washington. A remote room in the New York Public Library was its first office.
Later it moved to offices in the American Geographical Society at West 155th
Street and Broadway. James T. Shotwell, a Columbia University historian and an
early recruit came up with the agency name the INQUIRY, which, he said, would be
a "blind to the general public, but would serve to identify it among the
initiated." Shotwell probably chose the name because the word History is derived
from the Greek word meaning "a learning by inquiry." Ironically the INQUIRY
would use psychological warfare techniques to warp history by stressing
favorable and unfavorable truths and leaving out facts completely to shape
public opinion to support INQUIRY goals.
The INQUIRY and its members wrote most of Woodrow
Wilson's 14 points. Many of the members of the INQUIRY and the US State
department delegates at the Paris Peace conference belonged to the American
branch of a secret society founded by the English imperialist Cecil Rhodes. At
the Paris Peace conference they traded off most of the 14 points to establish
the League of Nations. After the conference they attended a meeting at the Hotel
Majestic and become the founding fathers of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Council on Foreign Relations member Edward M.
House became the first National Security Advisor. The National Security Advisor
serves as the chief adviser to the President of the United States on national
security issues. This person serves on the National Security Council within the
Executive Office of the President. The National Security Advisor's office is
located in the West Wing of the White House. He or she is supported by a staff
that produces research, briefings, and
intelligence for the NSA to review and present to the National Security Council
and the President of the United States.
The National Security Advisor is appointed by the
President without confirmation by the United States Senate. This is meant to
make sure they are not connected to the bureaucracies of the Departments of
State and Defense, and are therefore able to offer independent advice. Every
National Secuirty Advisor since CFR member House has been a member of the
Council on Foreign Relations. The current office holder is retired Marine Corps
General James L. Jones, who assumed the duties of the post when Barack Obama was
sworn into office on January 20, 2009 as President of the United States. General
James L. Jones is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
On September 12, 1939, the Council on Foreign
Relations began to take control of the Department of State. On that day Hamilton
Fish Armstrong, Editor of Foreign Affairs, and Walter H. Mallory, Executive
Director of the Council on Foreign
Relations, paid a visit to the State Department. The Council proposed forming
groups of experts to proceed with research in the general areas of Security,
Armament, Economic, Political, and Territorial problems. The State Department
accepted the proposal. The project (1939-1945) was called Council on Foreign
Relations War and Peace Studies. Hamilton Fish Armstrong was Executive director.
In February 1941 the CFR officially became part of
the State Department. The Department of State established the Division of
Special Research. It was organized just like the Council on Foreign Relations
War and Peace Studies project. It was divided into Economic, Political,
Territorial, and Security Sections. The Research Secretaries serving with the
Council groups were hired by the State Department to work in the new division.
These men also were permitted to continue serving as Research Secretaries to
their respective Council groups. Leo Pasvolsky was appointed Director of
The State Department has been controlled by Council
on Foreign Relations members since its inception. The NSA and State Department
are closely connected through Council on Foreign Relations membership.
[Council on Foreign Relations member ]Gen. David
Petraeus, commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East and Central Asia, says he
endorses [Council on Foreign Relations member ] Gen. Stanley McChrystal's
strategy in Afghanistan.
The Afghan assessment is contained in a confidential
report prepared by the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, a copy
of which was obtained by The Washington Post. The thrust of McChrystal's
assessment is that without more troops by next year the eight-year-old conflict
could result in failure.
Speaking at a conference of military and civilian
counterinsurgency experts, [Council on Foreign Relations member ] Petraeus said
the current multi-dimensional approach is the only way to fight terrorism in
Afghanistan, the Voice of America reported. He said Joint Chiefs of Staff
Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen also has endorsed [Council on Foreign Relations member
] McChrystal's assessment, the report said.
"To counter terrorism, and I'm talking about
terrorism writ large, extremism, requires more than just your special mission
unit forces," [Council on Foreign Relations member ] Petraeus said. "It really
requires a whole of governments,

partnerships and, again, a comprehensive approach to these problems is the
The report quoted Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell
as saying [Council on Foreign Relations member ] McChrystal's troop request will
be sent to Defenses [Council on Foreign Relations member ] Secretary Robert
Gates this week, while a review by President Barack Obama and his administration
officials continues. Morrell said there may be changes in the troop buildup if
Obama decides to adjust his strategy.

May 24, 2010: U.S. Is Said to Expand Secret Actions
WASHINGTON The top American commander in the
Middle East has ordered a broad expansion of clandestine military activity in an
effort to disrupt militant groups or counter threats in Iran, Saudi Arabia,
Somalia and other countries in the
region, according to defense officials and military documents.
The secret directive, signed in September by [
Council on Foreign Relations member ]Gen. David H. Petraeus, authorizes the
sending of American Special Operations troops to both friendly and hostile
nations in the Middle East, Central Asia and
the Horn of Africa to gather intelligence and build ties with local forces.
Officials said the order also permits reconnaissance that could pave the way for
possible military strikes in Iran if tensions over its nuclear ambitions
While the Bush administration had approved some
clandestine military activities far from designated war zones, the new order is
intended to make such efforts more systematic and long term, officials said. Its
goals are to build networks that
could “penetrate, disrupt, defeat or destroy” Al Qaeda and other militant
groups, as well as to “prepare the environment” for future attacks by American
or local military forces, the document said. The order, however, does not appear
authorize offensive strikes in any specific countries.
In broadening its secret activities, the United
States military has also sought in recent years to break its dependence on the
Central Intelligence Agency and other spy agencies for information in countries
without a significant American troop
[ Council on Foreign Relations member ] General
Petraeus’s order is meant for small teams of American troops to fill
intelligence gaps about terror organizations and other threats in the Middle
East and beyond, especially emerging groups plotting attacks against the United
But some Pentagon officials worry that the expanded
role carries risks. The authorized activities could strain relationships with
friendly governments like Saudi Arabia or Yemen which might allow the
operations but be loath to acknowledge their cooperation or incite the anger
of hostile nations like Iran and Syria. Many in the military are also concerned
that as American troops assume roles far from traditional combat, they would be
at risk of being treated as spies if captured and denied the Geneva Convention
protections afforded military detainees.
The precise operations that the directive authorizes
are unclear, and what the military has done to follow through on the order is
uncertain. The document, a copy of which was viewed by The New York Times,
provides few details about continuing missions or intelligence-gathering
Several government officials who described the
impetus for the order would speak only on condition of anonymity because the
document is classified. Spokesmen for the White House and the Pentagon declined
to comment for this article. The Times, responding to concerns about troop
safety raised by an official at United States Central Command, the military
headquarters run by [ Council on Foreign Relations member ] General Petraeus,
withheld some details about how troops could be deployed in certain countries.
The seven-page directive appears to authorize
specific operations in Iran, most likely to gather intelligence about the
country’s nuclear program or identify dissident groups that might be useful for
a future military offensive. The Obama
administration insists that for the moment, it is committed to penalizing Iran
for its nuclear activities only with diplomatic and economic sanctions.
Nevertheless, the Pentagon has to draw up detailed war plans to be prepared in
advance, in the
event that President Obama ever authorizes a strike.
“The Defense Department can’t be caught
flat-footed,” said one Pentagon official with knowledge of [ Council on Foreign
Relations member ]General Petraeus’s order. The directive, the Joint
Unconventional Warfare Task Force Execute Order, signed Sept. 30, may also have
helped lay a foundation for the surge of American military activity in Yemen
that began three months later.
Special Operations troops began working with Yemen’s
military to try to dismantle Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, an affiliate of
Osama bin Laden’s terror network based in Yemen. The Pentagon has also carried
out missile strikes from Navy ships into suspected militant hideouts and plans
to spend more than $155 million equipping Yemeni troops with armored vehicles,
helicopters and small arms.
Officials said that many top commanders, [ Council
on Foreign Relations member ] General Petraeus among them, have advocated an
expansive interpretation of the military’s role around the world, arguing that
troops need to operate beyond Iraq and Afghanistan to better fight militant
The order, which an official said was drafted in
close coordination with Adm. Eric T. Olson, the officer in charge of the United
States Special Operations Command, calls for clandestine activities that “cannot
or will not be accomplished” by
conventional military operations or “interagency activities,” a reference to
American spy agencies.
While the C.I.A. and the Pentagon have often been at
odds over expansion of clandestine military activity, most recently over
intelligence gathering by Pentagon contractors in Pakistan and Afghanistan,
there does not appear to have
been a significant dispute over the September order.
A spokesman for the C.I.A. declined to confirm the
existence of [ Council on Foreign Relations member ] General Petraeus’s order,
but said that the spy agency and the Pentagon had a “close relationship” and
generally coordinate operations in the field. “There’s more than enough work to
go around,” said the spokesman, Paul Gimigliano. “The real key is coordination.
That typically works well, and if problems arise, they get settled.”
During the Bush administration, [ Council on
Foreign Relations & Bilderberg member ]
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld
endorsed clandestine military operations, arguing that Special Operations troops
could be as effective as traditional spies, if not more so.
Unlike covert actions undertaken by the C.I.A., such
clandestine activity does not require the president’s approval or regular
reports to Congress, although Pentagon officials have said that any significant
ventures are cleared through the National Security Council. Special Operations
troops have already been sent into a number of countries to carry out
reconnaissance missions, including operations to gather intelligence about
airstrips and bridges.
Some of , [ Council on Foreign Relations &
Bilderberg member ] Mr. Rumsfeld’s initiatives were controversial, and met with
resistance by some at the State Department and C.I.A. who saw the troops as a
backdoor attempt by the Pentagon to
assert influence outside of war zones. In 2004, one of the first groups sent
overseas was pulled out of Paraguay after killing a pistol-waving robber who had
attacked them as they stepped out of a taxi.
A Pentagon order that year gave the military
authority for offensive strikes in more than a dozen countries, and Special
Operations troops carried them out in Syria, Pakistan and Somalia.
In contrast, [ Council on Foreign Relations member ]
General Petraeus’s September order is focused on intelligence gathering by
American troops, foreign business people, academics or others to identify
militants and provide “persistent
situational awareness,” while forging ties to local indigenous groups.

Big Brother has turned monitoring the Internet into big business,
which grows daily as the controllers wave the false flag of
cybersecurity. Since the magnitude of the "Top Secret"
Intelligence Industrial Complex has now been published by the
elitist mouthpiece, The Washington Post, it seems there is no
stopping the Internet control machine from eliminating all privacy
and anonymity on the Web.
made it clear they were participating in the eradication of
privacy when this week they published the private data of 100
million members. But it's not good enough just to have the data
available if the government needs it with a court order;
rather, they want to map everything in order to predict behavior
"just in case a crime may be committed" in the future. It is the
open announcement of a
Minority Report-style system that is set to work inside and
outside of The Cyber World.
The Internet now appears to be enfolding into a tyrannical high-tech
control grid. After all, the powerful monopolistic cartels that
control every industry, every government, and the media, must feel
thoroughly threatened by the Internet -- which, in its current form,
represents the ultimate "free market" of free minds where all the
people can voice their uniqueness.
According to Wired, Google has partnered with the CIA to fund
intricate tracking of the Internet:
The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of
thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the
relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents
— both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company
says its temporal analytics engine
goes beyond search by looking at the ˜invisible links"
between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities
Besides the now public merger between Google and the CIA, there
is a privately-held, little-known company called
The Hive Group, specializing in "decoding the Internet's raw
data," which seems to be at the heart of a philosophical high-tech
system that seeks to
track, trace, and database our every move. The Hive Group was
founded by the creator of hyperlink technology, Ben Shneiderman, a
computer scientist specializing in human-computer interaction.
According to their site they offer, "information
treemappingsolutions to both industry and government."
Their primary commercial product,
Honeycomb, is listed as a tool for Armed Services,
International Governance and Security, and Intelligence described
The company builds Highly Immersive Visual Environments that
are deployed in operational intelligence (OI), business
intelligence (BI), and complex event processing (CEP) contexts.

Shortly after September 11th, Hive Group founder Dr. Shneiderman
testified in Congressional hearings about national
identification systems and Biometric ID cards on behalf of the U.S.
Public Policy Committee of the Association for Computing Machinery (USACM),
which is an 80,000-member strong international professional society,
where he said:
Implementing an intricate national identification system is a
challenging systems engineering matter. It requires a complex
integration of social and technical systems, including humans,
hardware, software, networks, and database security. Such
socio-technical systems are always vulnerable to error, breakdown,
sabotage and destruction by natural events or by people with
In other words, Big Brother has a lot of work to do on predictive
behavior technology to keep us safe from the terrorists. Let's now
remember that this testimony took place nearly 9 years ago with many
billions since spent on the Intelligence Industrial Complex. The
Hive Group is one of the companies spearheading the bridge between
government and the private sector, having done work for the Defense
Department, Lockheed Martin, and SAIC,
and even mapped the spread of the
bogus H1N1 outbreak "pandemic."
The company also has a nefarious connotation with its acronym HIVE
and its key product Honeycomb. Both
concepts are derived from Transhumanism -- the philosophy to
self-direct evolution and facilitate the human-computer bond
into a scientific dictatorship modeled after the central direction
of the beehive colony in nature. It should be no surprise, then,
that The Hive Group offers a
world population application, since Julian Huxley -- the father
of Transhumanism -- was instrumental in the
philosophy and policies of population management and reduction.
We are heading toward an age where mind and machine are one and the
same. For the advocates of freedom, it is a true blessing to be
able to congregate and disseminate the message of peace and
prosperity. However, under the authoritarian rule of the
control-oriented HIVE philosophy -- where man is no better, nor
different, than bees in a honeycomb -- we have been reduced to be
workers at the service of the queen.
"So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of
Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost
not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his
iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn
the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he
do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast
thy soul." Ezekiel 33:6-9.
