CIA Director Pompeo is far from the best choice to lead the CIA and it’s mission unless you like keeping it corrupt and spying on you. The man who once supported Wikileaks and it’s information flipped over and now says it is a dangerous intelligent agency. How can we trust someone with this background?
In the publication about Pompeo, Breitbart makes this point:
Pompeo has supported online surveillance programs. He has said former NSA contractor Edward Snowden should be “brought back from Russia and given due process.” He stated, “I think the proper outcome would be that he would be given a death sentence” because he “put friends of mine, friends of yours who serve in the military today at enormous risk because of the information he stole and then released to foreign powers.
In the same article, this was stated:
Pompeo has been accused of “Islamophobia” by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, for statements such as this one, made after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013: “When the most devastating terrorist attacks on America in the last 20 years come overwhelmingly from people of a single faith, and are performed in the name of that faith, a special obligation falls on those that are the leaders of that faith.” He continued, “Instead of responding, silence has made these Islamic leaders across America potentially complicit in these acts and more importantly still, in those that may well follow.”
I am not sure of the real reason President Trump picks this man who blatantly has some issues. Going after whistleblowers and leakers is definitely showing ties to Deep State and shows that this man cannot be trusted as he would hide corruption from the citizens of the United States.
Here is another quote from Mike Pompeo on Wikileaks:
“… the American people deserve a clear explanation of what their Central Intelligence Agency does on their behalf…. we are an organization committed to uncovering the truth and getting it right…. And sure—we also admit to making mistakes…. But it is always our intention—and duty—to get it right. And that is one of the many reasons why we at CIA find the celebration of entities like WikiLeaks to be both perplexing and deeply troubling.” – CIA Director Mike Pompeo, April 13, 2017
WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. It has encouraged its followers to find jobs at CIA in order to obtain intelligence. It directed Chelsea Manning in her theft of specific secret information. And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations. It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is – a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.
He is wrong in his opinions. The only reason he could possibly have went from loving Wikileaks to hating them is his current position. He wants to make a name for himself regardless of the truth. He is fighting against the truth which is what the CIA seems to endorse.
Wikileaks has the same goals as any news organization. They want to publish the truth, (though many of those organizations would rather lie in these troubled times and are bias), Julian Assange and Wikileaks has always only published the unbiased honest facts. They have never had to retract a story and do not want to bring down America in any way. We The People have a right to a transparent government and Assange has made that possible.
Once again the high hilarity of the deceitful surfaces in Pompeo’s calling Assange a threat to democracy. Once again, it is obvious how quickly people turn on the truth and choose deception and lies. Pompeo has called torturers patriotic or his open support of such places as Guatanamo open which is defined often as a place of torture.
He has publicly recommended survelliance on the American people which is in direct violation of the Constitution which clearly states it would be a violation of rights to privacy. The fourth amendment clearly states:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
So then as a director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo will not be constitutionally fit for office nor will he be for the rights of the people. He will seek to destroy organizations such as Wikileaks and seek the death penalty in all whistleblower cases. In fact because of the NDAA act of 2011, he could detain Julian Assange or Edward Snowden indefinitely. What chaos will this man cause in our country while he is director? Do we as a country need this in light of all the other problems we have?
