The CIA has always employed people to blend into the media(which today is the "interwebs"), so this seems like a natural evolution.
Controlling(actually, effecting by participation/manipulation) public discourse and opinion has become a very viable and cost effective option by
inserting "operatives" into the online flow.
Back in the 40s-90s the CIA posted people in newspapers(e.g., Washington Post, Woodward), news organizations (UPI, AP, etc.) to plant stories of
various kinds to further their disinformation and control agenda.
Today its the internet, and ALL digital communication (thank you FISA Amendment Act and the "Patriot" Act). Ever since 1947, the intelligence
"community"(NRO, DIA, CIA, etc.) has been beyond the control of any branch of government. This is unconstitutional! Why do you think Eisenhower
mentioned the threat of the "military-industrial complex" as he left office? IT WAS ALREADY TOO LATE! He knew it, but was powerless to do anything
Various "conspiracy theories" attribute this to the evolution of a power elite that began in 19th century Europe as the banking "industry"
developed and influenced nation-state conflicts. Continuing into the U.S., an elite group of industrialists(funded by international banking
interests) began the systematic plundering and looting of natural resources and, as their wealth and power grew, influenced and controlled both
domestic and foreign policy to further their avarice. Into the 20th century, the consolidation of energy resources(oil) and intelligence (to insure
their grasp and control) caused international conflicts which resulted in a further consolidation of their control.
For example, Prescott Bush (former Wall St. banker, Conn. senator and father of George H.W. Bush) profited immensely by investing in the military
hardware buildup of Nazi Germany. His son was involved in the intelligence community beginning in WWII, aiding the energy/intelligence machine as it
moved to west Texas, the Mideast, and Central and South America. Allen Dulles, the head of the CIA, had a hand in guiding/controlling all
developments of the HIGHLY profitable oil/energy business. Before the Batista regime in Cuba fell, U.S. oil companies had leased VAST areas of both
land and offshore sites for oil drilling. Castro canceled their claims. The Bay of Pigs invasion was supposed to wrest control back to the oil
companies, but JFK refused to back the effort. Guess what happened to him? Guess where George H.W. Bush was on November 22 and 23, 1963? Dallas,
TX, although he claimed "not to remember" where he was that day. NO ONE who was alive then cannot remember where they were when they heard the
news. From that day, no U.S. president has been selected and elected by "the people". The intelligence/energy elite have controlled and conspired
to make sure their interests, and POWER would be protected. They have bought off Congress, the Supreme Court and the presidency(although some
presidents had/have no idea what was actually going on). Because of their deep and longstanding control of the intelligence and military-industrial
complex, they have created a compartmentalized organization that stifles technological developments and societal evolution by creating a perpetual war
culture in the U.S. We're at war with drugs, terrorists and anyone or group that dares cross the line of their control.
Sound paranoid? Sure it does. But ask yourself this: How was it we went from the Wright Brothers in 1903, to the moon in 66 years, but in the 43
years since then(and with the addition of the explosion of digital technology) we haven't advanced beyond the same solid fuel rockets we used in the
60s? Do you think this makes ANY sense? As just one example of the stifling of technological development, look up Dr. Ning Li, University of
We've lost our republic.
