Well I had no idea that Brittany was dead but it really does not suprise me at all.
These kinds of organizations have been super dodgy for years and years and years. at certain points in history, certain acronym org's have been more
brazen with the truth but used things like the cold war or WWII as excuses for being so paranoid and extreme and at those times these explanations
were accepted because people were afraid for the future.
Honestly, most of the nations on earth have this shady sort of business going on and if pushed they would most likely say that the reason they do one
thing is to protect something else of dire importance.
These are the kinds of people that are happy to destroy entire townships to protect secrets or secret process's that if discovered would seriously
jepordize the security of this, that or the other.
Sometimes, regardless of the crime, nothing will be done and we the people will never know if it was in any way justified like a nessecary sacrifice
or if it's merely evil men doing evil things.
But America is at the top of the pecking order (or near enough anyway) and is CERTAIN to be conducting these sorts of activities regulary.
Many of the people that you see on the news being gunned down by various police and security forces are probably totally innocent of whatever the news
tells you they done... but guilty of things that the authorities cannot talk about.
Imagine a man in the military steals some documents that would destroy a mayjor trade alliance with another country, but that trade alliance is top
secret and cannot be disclosed. they have to do something to stop him, but the news programs and public will demand answers, an arrest means a
trial./.. thats no good for keeping secrets, you can't have some judge be privy to secrets that violate the laws of the country. so you frame the guy
and kill him, either making it look like an accident, natural causes or accuse them post mortem of being a terrorist or some such thereby justifying
him being shot dead in a police action.... hell even the guys doing the shooting don't need to know the truth!
Our leaders are dodgy, cloak and dagger loving, sociopaths who have structured things in such a way that they just get progressivly more and more dark
and shady. Thats just how things work, and have worked ever since the first large nations appeared.
whistleblow all you like but they will just destroy your reputation to the point where your own family is unsure and then kill you dead.
Never trust those volunteering for a positon of power. Never fully trust Authority. pick your battles and know when to keep your mouth shut.
Thats the reality of our world. deal with it because there is 'F' all that you can do to change it as long as most of the people are comftable with
their own lives. Only the ones being hassled will ever care.
An individuals life means less then nothing to most of these people, only when a large number of people begin to care will the individual ever be safe
from the people they entrust with their safety.
And celebrities can be knocked off a dime a dozen because most of society expects it to happen and will not question a drug o.d or similar.
Unfortunatly we all have to wait for one of these organizations to mess up bad enough to alert a very large number of people before any of us can do a
damned thing about it.
Have a nice day.
