‘I Was the CIA Director – We Lied, We Cheated, We Stole’ – Mike Pompeo

What we see here is big fat Mike Pompeo, ensconced comfortably in a chair on stage, smiling and laughing away in front of an audience at Texas A & M University about lying, cheating, and stealing in the CIA.

 ‘…a Christian religious news broadcaster was the only media that seemed to pick up on Pompeo’s words last week, and described it as follows: “that’s not the resume of the Secretary of State… that’s the resume of Satan.”’

The person writing the brief piece at Citizen Free Press characterized the religious broadcaster’s words as “extreme overreaction.”

Sorry, I’m not a fundamentalist, not even a Christian, yet I regard the religious broadcaster’s words as no overreaction at all. Just bitter truth, put into religious terms, about a man in very high office who brags of leaving his Bible open on his desk at work and who claims to be a “born again” Christian.

I don’t see the point or meaning of either claim, Bible or Christian identity, if what you do is cheat, lie, and steal – and, of course, we should add, left out in the piece, kill – laughing about it all.

The writer of this sick little squib in Citizen Free Press clearly shares Pompeo’s humorous attitude towards depravity and power. Any means to an end. We all knew anyway, so big deal.

Well, yes, I did know, but seeing this kind of treatment of the ugly facts tells us yet something new.

No ethical or moral standards and no principle beyond getting what you want, anyway you want. And laughing about it? I’m not sure America hasn’t touched bottom.

My God, what do words even mean?

And why should the words of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights mean anything either? Or of international law or protocols?

They don’t. As we’ve amply seen in the CIA’s International Torture Gulag for “rendered” (kidnapped) innocent people? And in its industrial scale extrajudicial killing program, America’s hi-tech version of what the old Argentine junta used to do when it “disappeared” thousands of legally innocent people grabbed off the street?

I find this sick and frightening, both Pompeo’s psychopathic words and humor and the response of the anonymous writer of the little piece. We hear no objection from the audience either.

But it all has the great value of ripping away the covers and exposing with the extreme clarity and sight and smell of a bleeding carcass, American values at the highest level of power, at a gathering in a major university, as well as at the level of some anonymous Internet scribbler.

If you’re really paying attention, you understand how profoundly corrupt America has become.
