The 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état was a covert operation carried out by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that deposed the democratically elected Guatemalan President Jacobo Árbenz and ended the Guatemalan Revolution. Code-named Operation PBSUCCESS, it installed the military dictatorship of Carlos Castillo Armas, the first in a series of U.S.-backed dictators who ruled Guatemala.

Сегодня кровавый палач и директор ЦРУ Джон Бреннан провёл пресс-конференцию про пытки, в которой оспорил их бесполезность. Я, конечно, в первую очередь ждал, ввернёт ли он знаменитое спасение Лос-Анджелеса от разрушения пост фактум. Оказалось, что нет. Эта хохма прочно забыта. Надеюсь, не благодаря каким-нибудь ужасным событиям 2016 года.

Оказывается, знаменитый доклад представляет дело таким образом, что лично президент Буш не был садистическим маньяком, а просто ЦРУ ему ничего не рассказывало. Интересно, как отреагирует президент Буш. Надеюсь, выступит с опровержением, что прекрасно все рассказывало.

House Intelligence chief warns report will spur attacks on Americans" -- The chairman of the House intelligence committee is warning that the release of a Senate report that details "enhanced interrogation techniques" used after the 9/11 attacks, will lead to violence abroad and the deaths of Americans serving overseas. Абсолютно согласен с председателем. Звучит в высшей степени логично.

WP -- A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques.

Washington (CNN) -- CIA-funded weapons have begun flowing to Syrian rebels, a U.S. official told CNN. But opposition groups say they have yet to receive any. Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday during a Google+ Hangout discussion that "many of the items that people complained were not getting to them are now getting to them." He did not elaborate on specifics.

К директорам ЦРУ, которые совершенно секретно утверждали, что Сноуден своими разоблачениями нанес непоправимый урон государственной безопасности США, добавились другие директора ЦРУ, которые совершенно секретно уточняют, что Сноуден ничего про совершенно секретные программы ЦРУ знать не мог, и что все его разоблачения - вранье.

Jeffrey Goldberg@bloomberg: Here’s a question I asked myself yesterday: Would I rather have my phone records collected and readied for possible inspection by the National Security Agency, or have my genitalia scrutinized by the Transportation Security Administration? One answer, of course, is, why choose? In today’s America you can have both.

REUTERS.COM -- Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday. These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference. The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.
