A Long-Forgotten CIA Document From WikiLeaks Sheds Critical Light on Today’s US Politics and Wars-Ron Paul Institute

“But it was one WikiLeaks document that particularly caught my attention at first: a classified 2010 CIA “Red Cell Memorandum,” named after the highly secretive unitcreated by Bush/Cheney CIA Director George Tenet in the wake of the 9/11 attack.

What made this document so fascinating, so revealing, is the CIA’s discussion of how to manipulate public opinion to ensure it remains at least tolerant if not supportive of Endless War and, specifically, the vital role President Obama played for the CIA in packaging and selling US wars around the world. In this classified analysis, one learns a great deal about how the ‘military industrial complex,’ also known as the ‘Blob’ or Deep State,’ reasons; how the Agency exploits humanitarian impulses to ensure continuation of its wars; and what the real function is of the US President when it comes to foreign policy.
