Unjustifiably Slamming John Brennan’s Defrocking

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

A rogue’s gallery of former US intelligence community and other officials unjustifiably slammed Trump’s revocation of Brennan’s security clearance.

DJT didn’t go far enough. He should have ordered the Justice Department to indict him for high crimes of war and against humanity.

The problem is Trump, his regime hardliners, and most congressional members share guilt. Washington’s criminal class is bipartisan, especially its executive and congressional leadership, a deplorable situation too debauched to fix.

Brennan’s dirty hands also cooked up Russiagate, falsely claiming the Kremlin interfered in America’s political process, a bald-faced lie.

Claiming “100% certainty” about Russian meddling compounded Brennan’s Big Lie.

The Russian meddling hoax and phony Kremlin threat to US security are key to maintaining adversarial relations with America’s main invented enemy – unjustifiably justifying countless trillions of dollars poured down a black hole of waste, fraud and abuse at the expense of eroding social justice and other vital homeland needs.

The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post said “more than a dozen former intelligence directors, plus retired Adm. William H. McRaven, spoke out against the president’s move.” 

“On Aug. 17, they were joined by another 60 officials, and over 170 (others) added their names on Aug. 20. They include:

— former DNI James Clapper, an unindicted perjurer, among his other high crimes;

— former CIA directors and deputy directors Robert Gates, William Webster, George Tenet, Michael Hayden, Porter Goss, Leon Panetta, defrocked David Petraeus, John McLaughlin, Stephen Kappes, Avril Haines, David Cohen, Michael Morell, Dennis Blair, and Albert Calland.

Dozens of other former CIA officials and operatives, along with former US intelligence community members and officials in other capacities, joined the Trump bashing chorus – opposing one of the rare positive actions he took.

WaPo said scores of other former US officials signed another statement of protest.

All the signatories and countless others comprise a rogue’s gallery of shame, complicit with current dark forces in America – unaccountable for high crimes of war and against humanity too grievous to ignore.
