The CIA released their "family jewels" yesterday, a series of documents detailing abuses of power. You can read it at the CIA’s Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room, but it’s over 700 pages long, so you might want to download it from The National Security Archive to peruse at your leisure. The CIA also released the CAESAR-POLO-ESAU papers, which is a detailed (11,000 fucking pages detailed) analysis of Soviet-Chinese relations and internal politics during 1953-1973.
The American Central Intelligence Agency announced that they are releasing documents detailing abuses from the 1950s to the 1970s. There’s some crazy shit in there, like hardcore surveillance, assassination plots, and brainwashing! They brainwashed "unwitting" people. I want to read that shit. How the fuck is someone "unwitting" to being brainwashed?! Did they use the Jedi Mind Tricktm?! Was sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll involved?! If I didn’t read the BBC News story, I would’ve thought that hackers planted this after ruining Harry Potter for everyone. Supposedly these documents are being released to present a complete picture of history. You know why they really want you to take a closer look at their history, don’t you? It’s in order to distract you from all the fucked up shit they’re doing now.
If you’re ever in Greece, be careful if you drive. Especially of the police. If they don’t steal your car outright, they just might shoot your ass for double parking! I know the Greek police have a history of brutality and corruption, but shooting people for minor parking offenses is pretty hardcore. Reminds me of Clint Eastwood in Magnum Force, when he says, “where do you draw the line? Pretty soon you’ll execute someone for jaywalking, or you’ll execute your neighbor ’cause his dog took a shit on your lawn.”
