Deputy Director of C.I.A. Is Stepping Down





WASHINGTON — Stephen R. Kappes, the veteran clandestine officer who
came out of retirement in 2006 to lift morale in the Central Intelligence
Agency’s troubled ranks, is stepping down as deputy director, the agency announced on Wednesday.

Stephen R. Kappes has been credited by Democrats with soothing agency
turmoil.

Mr. Kappes, a stern former Marine who over his career served undercover in
Moscow, Islamabad, Pakistan, and, in the 1980s, at a secret C.I.A. station in
Germany collecting information about Iran, was the first officer from the
clandestine service to become the agency’s second-ranking official since
the early 1980s.

The very guy who's job it is to lift moral at the CIA
is leaving. Do their morals not need lifting anymore?? lol
Any clue as to the real reason why he's leaving???

I have no clue as to why this was moved to general conspiracy
forum. Somebody leaves the CIA is NOT a conspiracy.
It is fact and a military project where I originally posted it.
But I'm not a mod


Anyway it would seem this man has been under pressure
from civil rights groups for the treatment of war detainees.

Turmoil within the CIA - naw 911 had nothing to do with that.
well 911 traces back to them the FBI - NYC - and a whole host
of other suspects. I can see how a little thing like whacking 3200
people could cause as they say turmoil.

now all we need is a few of them to go on TV and admit
they knew about 9/11 before it happened and the CIA
would crumble like a stack of twigs.

I say his stepping down is a blessing.

Since he was DDO during September 11th, his lack of effectively doing his job then, he should have been put down, like a horse with a broken ankle.

I'm still trying to determine if it was a deliberate betrayal or collusive action.


Quote from : Wikipedia : Stephen Kappes : First CIA tour (1981-2004)

At the time of the September 11 attacks, Kappes was the associate deputy director for operations for counterintelligence.


The CIA, Business Connections and Corruption


Considering the Project for the New American Century was heavily involved in the alleged masterminding of September 11th, I would have to say probably a bit of both. Unless he was betrayed by those within P.N.A.C.


Quote from : Wikipedia : Project for the New American Century

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006.

It was co-founded as a non-profit educational organization by neoconservatives William Kristol and Robert Kagan.

The PNAC's stated goal was "to promote American global leadership."

Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that "American leadership is both good for America and good for the world" and support for "a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity."

The PNAC exerted influence on high-level U.S. government officials in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush and affected the Bush Administration's development of military and foreign policies, especially involving national security and the Iraq War.


Possibly this belongs in the 9/11 Conspiracies instead of General Conspiracies?

Maybe he just wanted to go back to being retired, since he had come out of retirement in 2006? Not everything is a huge convoluted conspiracy.
