When will the American people learn that the government is filled with liars? The good news is that in the information age denial of facts is becoming much more difficult.
Today, the head of the CIA John Brennan apologized for hacking into US Senate computers to cover-up torture investigations, a charge he mockingly dismissed earlier this year.
Using very political language the CIA admitted their officers "acted improperly" and "inconsistent with the common understanding" of sharing classified data, and Brennan was forced to apologize to leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee for the breach.
What's most striking about this apology, is that Brennan told a bald-faced lie about these very allegations in March at the Council on Foreign Relations when he said:
"As far as the allegations of CIA hacking into the senate computers, nothing could be farther from the truth. We wouldn't do that. I mean, that's just beyond the scope of reason in terms of what we would do."
Brennan went on to predict, "When the facts come out on this, I think a lot of people who are claiming that there has been this tremendous sort of spying and monitoring and hacking will be proved wrong."
Hacking allegation discussion starts at 18:25 mark:
You'll also remember when the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress about whether the NSA was collecting the phone records of millions of Americans:
Clapper lied because he knew collecting phone records of Americans without a warrant is a violation of the Constitutional right to privacy. Now we know, thanks to Snowden leaks, that they do far more than collect phone metadata on innocent people.
Clapper lied about invading our privacy and Brennan lied to cover up the CIA torturing human beings.
These are the type of people who direct the government and society. Is it any wonder why less and less people trust these thugs?
