The family jewels are upon us

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.

In related news, the US Senate has issued a subpoena for documents relating to (possibly illegal) surveillance of US terror suspects.

Family jewels means testicles you know (420,000 could also be a drug reference)

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.
