On This Day — U.S. Admits CIA Payments to Noriega (January 19 1991)

“US officials in Central America failed to address this drug issue for fear of jeopardizing the war efforts against Nicaragua… and senior US policymakers were not immune to the idea that drug money was a perfect solution to the Contras’ funding problems.”

US Senator John Kerry

After Vice President George Bush took office in 1981, he met with Noriega and put him back on the payroll of the CIA. Bush met with Noriega on two occasions, once as CIA director and again during a trip to Panama in December 1983. [Source : Former CIA Director Stansfield Turner]

Four Years Ago — Former DCI Admiral Stansfield Turner Dies (January 18 2018) [Opinion — The CIA Knew the Truth about the Vela Incident. And I suspect, they know the Truth about Havana Syndrome.]

“Turner’s most disturbing discovery was the harsh questioning and illegal imprisonment that the Agency’s Counterintelligence Staff had imposed for several years on Soviet defector Yuri Nosenko. This convinced him that CIA could be a dangerous organization if not kept closely accountable to the DCI, the President, and the Congress.”

5G Belgium — Chaos Across the Spectrum [UPDATE — U.S. Airlines Warn of Chaos if 5G Is Deployed]

“The interferences caused to GSM-R receivers have been a very strong concern for Railway operators over the last years. Several cases of interference have been reported in various Member States, causing non-acceptable operational and even safety issues.”

EU Agency for Railways

May 31 2019 — Belgium’s telecoms regulator, the Belgian Institute for Post and Telecommunications (BIPT), has begun a public consultation to assess interest in using the 26GHz band for 5G services. Amazingly, the document does not say one word about possible interferences with — for instance — very important weather satellites. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

MLK Day — Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King (January 15 1929 – Assassinated April 4 1968) [The FBI Suicide Letter]

“The debate over how much the government should know about our private lives has never been more heated. Should intelligence agencies be able to sweep our email, read our texts, track our phone calls, locate us by GPS? Much of the conversation swirls around the possibility that agencies like the N.S.A. or the F.B.I. will use such information not to serve national security but to carry out personal and political vendettas. King’s experience reminds us that these are far from idle fears, conjured in the fevered minds of civil libertarians. They are based in the hard facts of history.”

Beverly Gage — Professor of American history at Yale


April 4 2021 — On November 21 1964, a letter — and a tape recording allegedly of King’s sexual indiscretions — was delivered to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The author appears to suggest that King should commit suicide or else… Although the letter was anonymously written, King suspected the FBI had sent the package He was not wrong. Today, I will raise an obvious question: Is the CIA behind the infamous PORNHUB website? Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today

On This Day — Patrice Lumumba is assassinated (January 17 1961) [“Project Wizard” — CIA covert action program]

Stephen R. WeissmanStaff director of the U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee on Africa from 1986 to 1991

Patrice Lumumba (July 2 1925 – January 17 1961) and Dag Hammarskjöld (July 29 1905 – September 18 1961)

January 17 2022 — The election of John F. Kennedy caused fear among Mobutu’s faction, and within the CIA, that his administration would favor Lumumba. Three days before Kennedy’s inauguration on January 20 1961, Lumumba was assassinated. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

On This Day — Reagan Approves Covert Arms Sales to Iran (January 17, 1986) [The Lockerbie Solution — Timeline]

“My purpose was… to send a signal that the United States was prepared to replace the animosity between the U.S. and Iran with a new relationship… At the same time we undertook this initiative, we made clear that Iran must oppose all forms of international terrorism as a condition of progress in our relationship. The most significant step which Iran could take, we indicated, would be to use its influence in Lebanon to secure the release of all hostages held there.”

US President Ronald Reagan (November 13, 1986)


January 17 2021 — Under the January 17 1986 Presidential Finding — which CIA director William Casey and CIA General Counsel Stanley Sporkin helped Colonel Oliver North put together — the U.S. Army sold the TOW missiles to the CIA, who in turn passed them on to general Secord, who then delivered them to Iranian agents. Crazy enough? The Reagan administration then used the proceeds of the arms sale to fund terrorists in Central America. This is not Fake News. This is History. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

One Year Ago — Lockerbie Third Appeal : Judges uphold guilty verdict [Errare humanum est, perseverare diabolicum]

“On March 11 2020, the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission [SCCRC] decided to refer the Lockerbie case back to the High Court of Justiciary for determination.

As a result of the Commission’s decision, Mr. Megrahi’s family was therefore entitled to instruct an appeal against his conviction.

To many observers, the SCCRC decision marks the beginning of Justice. I am afraid that I share neither their joy, nor their hopes.

The Devil is in the detail. And a careful reading of the SCCRC statement of reasons indicates that all hopes of Justice have already been annihilated.”

Lockerbie — Three Decades of Lies: J’Accuse…!

Wikipedia Anniversary — Operation “On Wings of Eagles” [Disinformation]

“Excessive consumption of sugar has been implicated in the onset of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and tooth decay. Numerous studies have tried to clarify those implications, but with varying results, mainly because of the difficulty of finding populations for use as controls that consume little or no sugar.”
