TURNER:Boy, what is it with you people? Do you think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth? HIGGINS:No, it's simple economics. Today, it's oil, right? In ten or fifteen years, food, plutonium, maybe even sooner. Now what do you think the people are going to want us to do then? TURNER:Ask them. HIGGINS:Not now; then! Ask em when they're running out! Ask 'em when there's no heat in their homes and they're cold. Ask 'em when their engines stop. Ask 'em when people who've never known hunger start going hungry. Want to know something? They won't want us to ask 'em! They'll just want us to get it for 'em.
There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear. How we work. What we think. It's all about the information.
The world isn't run by weapons anymore. Or energy. Or money. It's run by little ones and zeroes. Little bits of data. It's all just electrons.
GINA DAVIS: " Budget cuts? Is that what this is about? Operation honeymoon...f**k me! You're running a fund raiser!"
SAM JACKSON: Fund raiser? (surprised)
CIA DIRECTOR: "1993, World Trade Center bombing, remember? During the trial one of the bombers claimed the CIA had advanced knowledge; (laughing) the diplomat who issued the terrorists visa was CIA, its not unthinkable they paved the way for the bombing, purely to justify a budget increase."
SAM JACKSON: (surprised) "You're tellin' me that you're gonna fake some terrorist thing just to scare some money outta congress?"
CIA DIRECTOR: "Well, unfortunately Mr. Hennessy I have no idea how to fake killing 4000 people, so we're just going to hafta do it for real. Oh, blame it on the Muslims naturally, then I'll get my funding."
Now what happens if you dump free energy onto the world market, stock markets around the world would plummet, our own economy would collapse overnight, recession, unemployment, war....the world is speeding up too fast, we can barely hold on as it is.
A good conspiracy is unprovable. I mean, if you can prove it, it means they screwed up somewhere along the line.
Gabriel: Our job is to make terrorism so horrific that it becomes unthinkable to attack Americans.
Gabriel: Misdirection - what the eyes see and the ears hear the mind believes.
Redford: Happy? Seventy-five casualties, an apartment block leveled, one dead terrorist? Yeah, happy.
Pitt: We have some f**ked-up barometer for success, don't we?
Really? Let's see, who else has 27,000 nukes for us to worry about? -It's the guy with one that I'm worried about.
People called Hitler crazy. He wasn't crazy. Just stupid. You don't try and fight Russia and America. You get Russia and America to fight each other.
