I'm new here, so please forgive my ignorance, but it seems with indigothefish's 1st quoted statement "THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO TALK ABOUT ATS BEING
A CIA or MASONIC INSIDE JOB!", he was not directly accusing ATS of being cointelpro, but merely questioning why the discussion of such possibility
does not seem to be allowed here. (And let's be frank -- this is a conspiracy site, so perhaps ALL conspiracies (even the conspiracies within
conspiracies) should be entertained with equal vigor. In other words, if TPTB are able to let's say pull off something like global depopulation, for
instance, then they could certainly pull off something requiring far fewer resources like a conspiracy website -- so a discussion on this possibility
would seem highly relevant).
To this 1st quoted statement came SO's reply "read the opening post. there is no inside job." Then SO quoted indigothefish's next statement
"however, they kind of beat around the bush about it", to which SO replied "What isn't clear about the opening post?"
Well, what indigothefish meant by "beating around the bush about it" was not that ATS mods beat around the bush about the accusation being
true/false, but that they "beat around the bush" about the allowance of discussing the possibility of this accusation being true/false -- in other
words, can we, or can we not, openly discuss this possiblity right here on this site? I'm afraid the opening post isn't particularly clear on
whether such discussion is allowed.
Also, the bit about SO's old business acquaintance with "high civilian security clearance" stating that such cointelpro is not within the
means/budget of government...This is an interesting anecdote, but doesn't seem to quite make the case. If even just ONE of the major conspiracies
discussed here daily is indeed correct (i.e., 9/11, or the secret space program, or depopulation plans), then it would seem well within the
means/budget of the offending institution to engage in cointelpro of every feasible fashion to ensure everything runs -- well, is covered up --
