The hatchet jobs against NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden keep on coming with a new book whose author says he applied James Angleton’s counterintelligence techniques to Snowden

Edward Epstein has been in bed with CIA his entire career.

He wrote, many years ago, a trio of books on the Kennedy assassination: Inquest, Counterplot, and Legend

The first of them questioned some limited aspects of the Warren Commission, gaining “creds” for Epstein among assassination critics.

But the next two books are virtually unreadable by anyone well-informed on the matter.

Epstein proceeded to support all the key findings of the Warren Commission. He also proceeded to attempt destroying Oswald as a person.

It is an old intelligence trick. Give something to establish your creds, then proceed to do what you really want to do. A pat on the back just before a violent kick in the ass.

If you look back at the publications in which Epstein was typically published, you’ll find the kind of outfits CIA used to secretly subsidize and use as outlets for disinformation.

The CIA had a whole stable of well-known magazines and publications in the United States and abroad it used as outlets for people like Epstein.

So, here’s Epstein in his old age once again doing what he does best, write scripts for the CIA.
