Daily Kos: CIA Engineered Controlled Opposition?

Daily Kos: CIA Engineered Controlled Opposition?

[What's wrong with this picture?]

Is it possible Markos Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga, leader of the "Kossaks," that is to say followers and fawners of the Daily Kos, is a CIA operative? Francis Holland, posting on the My Left Wing messageboard, details Moulitsas’ relationship with the CIA:

...Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, owner of the DailyKos website, now admits that he spent six months in the employ of the US Central Intelligence Agency in 2001, writes Holland. "In a one-hour interview on June 2, 2006 at the Commonwealth Club, Moulitsas, also known as 'Kos,’ admitted that he was a CIA employee and would have 'no problem working for them’ in the present."...

...I applied to the CIA and I went all the way to the end, I mean it was to the point where I was going to sign papers to become Clandestine Services, Moulitsas admits in the interview. "And it was at that point that the Howard Dean campaign took off and I had to make a decision whether I was gonna kinda join the Howard Dean campaign, that whole process, or was I was going to become a spy. (Laughter in the audience.) It was going to be a tough decision at first, but then the CIA insisted that if, if I joined that, they’d want me to do the first duty assignment in Washington, DC, and I hate Washington, DC. Six years in Washington, DC [inaudible] that makes the decision a lot easier."...

Moulitsas considers the CIA "a very liberal institution," never mind the agency, according to John Stockwell, former CIA Station Chief in Angola (see my John Stockwell: The Third World War video), is responsible for killing more than six million people.

"This is a very liberal institution. And in a lot of ways, it really does attract people who want to make a better, you know, want to make the world a better place…. Of course, they’ve got their Dirty Ops and this and that, right but as an institution itself the CIA is really interested in stable world. That’s what they’re interested in. And stable worlds aren’t created by destabilizing regimes and creating wars…. I don’t think it’s a very partisan thing to want a stable world. And even if you’re protecting American interests, I mean that can get ugly at times, but generally speaking I think their hearts in the right place. As an organization their heart is in the right place. I’ve never had any problem with the CIA. I’d have no problem working for them ... "

they still reject the official story on Kennedy, 9/11, and other situations. They are just paralyzed with fear, overworked and underpaid, so don’t expect too much from them now in this present republican created social breakdown. There are programs out there that anticupate social breakdown and it’s consequences. A canadian study found that taking care of people is half as expensive to a nation than not doing so. did it factor in lost future intellectual potential, because with the cuts to public education, this nation si going to get even farther behind. Most people don’t understand multilateralism and how it… Read more »

I think that’s why reagan nazis studied Soviet terror-famines of 1920’s/30’s in 1985. They knew impact of budget cuts even then and didn’t care; rather they found ways to justify violence against targetted groups and people by mislabelling them enemies of the state when in fact the rightwingers under Reagan constituted a huge threat to the interests of the majority of americans and thus should have been labelled as antisocial fascists then for their massively subversive activities that involved old nazis from eastern europe (the worst stories of torture I have read have come from Uzbekistan.


That interview is still available online as podcast.
