So, this is probably gonna sound kinda dumb to you guys but something I noticed has been bothering me. Thought, of all people, you were the ones to ask so you might poke holes in my theory. You've likely saw the reports friday about the wikileaks message sent to the Trump family that CNN, MSNBC and others ran with. It's an obvious mess, but something caught my eye. The email that was sent to them is shown here...

Intercept



CNN’s PR Department then claimed that “multiple sources” had provided CNN with the false date


The multiple sources becomes a theme throughout the story by Greenwald, which made me wonder who they could be.


So i got curious, and started digging around on the net. The two businesses listed Aviation Management Inc and Drone Co Habitation Services can both be traced to an address shown in the following links...

Drone Co Habitation
Aviation Management

Only AMI says that Michael J Erickson is the President who just so happens to live at the address listed for both these companies. Since both only have 1 employee, it stands to reason that its him right?

Michael J Erickson

On the surface that didn't seem to mean anything, but as i was googling around Wilmington I came across the fact that the CIA is apparently in operation there....

Steps to Become a Core Collector in the CIA’s Clandestine Services in Delaware

That wasn't all.

The following links takes you to a book/page which tells the story of a man who was admitted to the University of Delaware because of the CIA office in Wilmington...

Mig 15 to Freedom

and this book in which we learn about a man who after attending the University of Delaware went to work for defense contractors like Dupont, whose HQ is also located in Wilmington, DE.

Dangerous Games

And this book, which states that funding for a CIA mission to Prague would be dispensed by two attorneys, described as benefactors, one of whom just happens to have an office in Wilmington, De.

International Programs: NSA in the Cold War

Which seems to make sense since a casual google of the University of Delaware brought up a slew of web pages connecting the CIA to the school...
UD Students tour CIA
Former CIa officer talks espionage in the digital age
Global Agenda


CIA employees pilot drones and gather surveillance on known enemies, but some spend large portions of their days reading through emails. Thousands per day, to be more precise, according to one analyst in the agency.


Which made me wonder.....what are the chances that a company started two years ago, run by a man named Michael Erickson would both be related to aviation/drones in an area that have links to Dupont and the CIA.

Is this all just random luck or did the CIA through an Agent in Wilmington, DE set up the main stream media outlets with the help of "multiple sources" who just happen to have confidential information about Wikileaks (which we all know is often linked to Russia)?

Seemed like far too many coincidental links to be nothing....but perhaps that's just my imagination. Then there is this.....I found links to CIA Rendition flights out of Wilmington

Edit: Apparently a ton of CIA agents also retired/lived in Wilmington, NC. What is it with the CIA and cities called Wilmington..


And if I end up getting killed over this I am so #ing haunting ATS.

That intercept article linked in the OP is excellent. For me who is not too fond of Trump Glenn Greenwald nailed it with this passage:


No matter your views on those political controversies, no matter how much you hate Trump or regard Russia as a grave villain and threat to our cherished democracy and freedoms, it has to be acknowledged that when the U.S. media is spewing constant false news about all of this, that, too, is a grave threat to our democracy and cherished freedom.


That the mainstream media may have been set up crossed my mind. On the other hand there have been so many examples of MSM fake news pushing that angle that it really leaves only one conclusion. They have an agenda and truth be damned. Way to erode any remaining trust in our western democracies. But maybe that actually is one of the the goals behind this kind of fictionalised reporting.

ETA another quote from intercept article


this type of recklessness and falsity is now a clear and highly disturbing trend – one could say a constant – when it comes to reporting on Trump, Russia and WikiLeaks.

At this point, why anyone would trust the MSM is completely beyond my comprehension. Confirmation bias seems to be a major determinant though... idiot sheeple everywhere just eat up!

It really was a great article, the list of false stories was rather eye opening..



Russia hacked into the U.S. electric grid to deprive Americans of heat during winter (Wash Post)

An anonymous group (PropOrNot) documented how major U.S. political sites are Kremlin agents (Wash Post)

WikiLeaks has a long, documented relationship with Putin (Guardian)

A secret server between Trump and a Russian bank has been discovered (Slate)

RT hacked C-SPAN and caused disruption in its broadcast (Fortune)

Crowdstrike finds Russians hacked into a Ukrainian artillery app (Crowdstrike)

Russians attempted to hack elections systems in 21 states (multiple news outlets, echoing Homeland Security)

Links have been found between Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci and a Russian investment fund under investigation (CNN)


Of course if the CIA wanted to completely discredit some of the most powerful news agencies in the country this would be a wonderful way to do it. And oddly enough, the man who helped Snowden has a real jones for the CIA who believes that they want to take down Trump.



Journalist and Intercept co-founder Glenn Greenwald told CNN he believes both the CIA and FBI as well as Russia interfered in the US presidential election. CNN's Michael Smerconish asked Greenwald whether he gave "any credence to the conspiracy theory" that the CIA, along with the Russians, had attempted to manipulate the results of the election, and the journalist replied simply that it "was probably both."
And he asserted the FBI had also played a part.

"I also think the FBI clearly sided with Donald Trump and did a lot of damaging leaks on purpose to hurt Hillary Clinton," he added, an apparent reference to the bureau's handling of the investigation into Clinton's email.

Greenwald went on to sum up the 2016 election as "a proxy war ... for unseen forces."


CNN
Sean Hannity Twitter

Googling CIA and Greenwald brings up a long list of stories over the past year with multiple ties back to the CIA, so is it Trump they are after (as Greenwald believes) or is this all a larger plot to take down both which would give them an incredible amount of power over both the Media and the White House.

Dude, this is what ATS is all about!

I'll dig in to this a bit more in detail later today and see if anything shakes out.

Excellent thread!

Damn, i was enjoying your article until I read this



...Wikileaks (which we all know is tied to Russia)?


Ruins it. I will still dig into it, though, and make the assumption you misspoke.
It does make sense that exposing the media for what they are would include giving them rope to hang themselves...

Why's that? It's not like I am the first person to make that suggestion, or even the hundredth.

You can make the suggestion, but we don't 'all know' Wikileaks is tied Russia.
Interesting thread nonetheless.

Interesting ideas...

Could it be also that the CIA set up one of their own to try and detect where the leaks are coming from?

The old "put out multiple versions of a story to various suspects and then see which version gets leaked"?

Good thread anyway

I was thinking about this as soon as the Aviation links where mentioned, I believe there was a thread some years ago regarding the CIA having registered planes within a shell company in Wilmington??, very questionable directors etc etc, typical spook stuff...

I could be very wrong about a few details as my memory is not what it once was, defo something to dig deeper with..


Good thread...

a reply to: slider1982

Your memory is quite good...it's called Summit Aviation...

Times


The ownership of the plane that crashed can be traced back to the Investair Leasing Corporation of McLean, Va. Investair bought the plane in October 1982 from Summit Aviation Inc. of Middletown, Del., and the plane was stored and maintained at the Summit airfield, according to public records and an Investair official. Companies Work for Government Both the Summit company, which was established in 1960 by Richard C. DuPont Jr., and Investair, which was organized in 1982, do classified military work for the Government and for the C.I.A., according to company officials and Congressional sources. Both companies also employ officials formerly affiliated with the C.I.A., according to published accounts.


The links between the CIA and DuPont are rather extensive....the other link I noticed ties back to the CIA Rendition flights in my OP. Plenty of planes from Wilmington, DE.

I don't see that quote in the article at all. In fact, Greenwald makes this point in his article. Note, The Intercept does not consider itself a part of the mainstream media.


As CNN sees the world, this would prove collusion between the Trump family and WikiLeaks and, more importantly, between Trump and Russia, since the U.S. intelligence community regards WikiLeaks as an “arm of Russian intelligence,” and therefore, so does the U.S. media.

To me, it doesn't matter if they were set up or not, they were set upable. They've been relying on leaks, etc. for so long that they don't know how to vet a story anymore.

Heck, I bet they don't even have fact checker staff anymore! Lazy!

Well, IMO, this is THE story of the week. The implications of this are staggering and certainly need exposed.

Nice work, OP...this belongs at the top of the page . This is what ATS is really about.

There is a war going on write now between the elected US government and the shadow government. The news normally sides on the side of the shadow.

soz off topic: like what you are seeing in saudi arabia.. Who was arrested.. why where they hung upside down and totured by us mercernies. These are the peeps that facilitated in 911


What you are seeing are power shifts. They are many and they are large. ATS for some reason is missing this boat..

Massive stuff is afoot..

Very interesting angle.
I thought wikileaks is a result of snowdens leaks though?

Russia really needs to hack into wikileaks?

James Bond flicks rub me the wrong way anymore.
Meddling spooks are always in cohoots always have been.
Good thread.
