I find it somewhat humorous how, depending on which politician is being investigated, how the FBI is either praised or castigated. And we wonder why
the Intelligence Services are politicized? I find it particularly disheartening when a self-proclaimed liberal fully supports the FBI, CIA, or
military simply because of statements or actions which further their political positions.
Here's an article that reflects the true nature of the FBI for the large majority of its existence, a corrupt organization that willfully harmed
people they knew to be innocent of the charges to simply justify their own actions. However, this example also exemplifies what happens when power
goes unchecked. I believe that it is one of our duties as US Citizens to hold the Intelligence services, the Armed Forces, our elected officials, and
any governmental employee to a higher standard not only because they represent us but also because unchecked power corrupts.
Mobster's Life Tells the Real Story of the FBI
Peter Limone, a Mafia soldier from the North End who just died at the age of 83,
spent 33 of those years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit — because he was framed by the FBI.
Think about that the next time you see some talking head on TV pontificating from Washington about how the FBI is the world’s greatest law
enforcement agency blah-blah-blah.
Not only did the FBI know Limone et al. weren’t guilty, they also knew who the real killers were.
This same columnist for the Boston Herald, Howie Carr, has written several books about Boston area mobsters and they are somewhat compelling reads,
especially "The Brothers Bulger". This book chronicles the unchecked power of a gangster who was protected by the FBI (after undergoing MKUltra
style mind-control experiments with '___' when he was locked up at Alcatraz). It also chronicles the often unchecked power of his brother, who was
the most powerful politician in Massachusetts for more than two decades.
Supporting corrupt organizations or politicians simply because they support your personal political beliefs is corrupt in and of itself. If we, as a
nation, stopped voting for the corrupt and the liars, we would have a far better ruling class. We've accepted too much for too long. This country
is in desperate need for a change, the change both Obama and Trump campaigned upon, the change that has yet to come to fruition.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? We must. If we don't, no one will.
