American journalist accuses US intelligence agencies of spreading misinformation

Independent American journalist Glen Greenwald, on the air of the Fox News channel, accused the US intelligence agencies of fabricating conspiracies. According to him, the constant lies and disinformation that has been spread for years by the CIA, the FBI and other structures have completely undermined the confidence of citizens in the authorities.


The journalist recalled the conspiracy of 2002-2003, when the CIA allegedly found evidence of the creation weapons mass destruction in Iraq. Based on the aforementioned "intelligence", the United States launched a war against the regime of Saddam Hussein. However, later it turned out that the CIA officers were “mistaken”, and there were no nuclear or biological weapons in Iraq. Naturally, according to Greenwald, this conspiracy was politically motivated and primarily aimed at changing the objectionable regime in Iraq. As a result, in Iraq since then, according to the most conservative estimates, about 600 thousand people have died.

In turn, the journalist emphasized that the aforementioned “mistake” is far from being an isolated case of abuse of special services in favor of the so-called “deep government”. Such conspiracies appear more and more often and already raise doubts among ordinary Americans.

At the same time, the credibility of the authorities, according to Greenwald, was finally undermined after the fabrication of the “Russian conspiracy” after the 2016 elections, when President Trump was accused of having links with Russia. No evidence was presented.

At the same time, the expert added that real persecution has been declared against journalists who are trying to expose the lies spread by the special services and the government. Back in the time of Barack Obama, "dissident" media experts were prosecuted under the so-called "Espionage Act", which, by the way, was adopted a hundred years ago.

Joe Biden, being vice president during the Obama years, was directly involved in this persecution. That is why, according to Greenwald, in the fight against "whistleblowers" today, similar, but even more severe, methods are used.

    Well, this Greenwald will not live long, Kennedy was killed, it is still unknown who, and it is not a problem at all to eliminate a journalist in the most democratic country on the planet!

      Yes, he "from grief, himself" can "bite or sniff" something. So much so that it will also be extreme in any political scandal of your choice.

      Why kill? There are more sophisticated methods. Block access to all little known publications, continuous surveillance, blocking cards, and so on. You know that in the US one of the most common crimes is computer hacking and theft from accounts and bank cards. There, as soon as they see an unfamiliar car that has stopped at the house, they immediately call the police and they come to check. Because the machines are equipped with equipment for intercepting, connecting to a modem. This is such a lyrical digression. Nasty criminals robbed a poor journalist, banks did not give a loan, and now he is a new bum.

        Everything was very detailed on the topic in the film "Enemy of the State", of course a movie, but most likely there are intersections with reality ...

      Nothing will happen to him, this news perfectly shows how the free press works in the USA (namely, free, but not independent), Fox News regularly criticizes Biden, CNN criticizes Trump, none of them are recognized as foreigners. We in Russia lack this, because if you criticize the authorities, reveal acute social problems, then at best you become a foreign agent and we see the results by the current state of our army. And over the past 6 years, the free press has been actively suppressed in our country, as a result, 20 million sets have disappeared.

        Who about what, and lousy about the bath.
        The blocking of Russian channels is good, the requirement to identify the source of funding for foreign publications in Russia is bad.
        Who would doubt that.

          Why are you arguing with reality? Well, try to create now a news portal in Russian jurisdiction that will cover acute social problems and publish constructive criticism, if it has an audience of one and a half people, then most likely no one will be interested in it, but if it even goes to the regional level, then they will quickly “find ” and foreign funding, and can under the articles bring the benefit of them to accept from discrediting the Armed Forces to insulting the authorities.

            I'm not arguing with reality, but with double standards.
            Either do not persecute for representing the point of view of the Russian Federation, or do not accuse you of reciprocating.
            The fact that we have a lot of, to put it mildly, abuses is not a secret for anyone, but you should not broadcast in the spirit of "but she herself, she herself!".

        The creation of the ghost of free speech they have worked out there to jewelry. They were doing this, moreover, successfully, back in the days of the USSR.
        What is allowed for Fox News is not allowed for the average journalist.

          So let it be so (although in the USA there is simply the most powerful institution of independent journalists), but what we have in the USA is free media, free means that different points of view can be broadcast in the media.

    Lies and hypocrisy are the main weapons of satanic American propaganda. They would say honestly, as it is: we need Saddam's oil, we need Gaddafi's oil and his billions. No, they mumble something about the violation of democratic principles, some kind of chemical weapon that was never found. And Iraq and Libya are in ruins.

    And nothing at all - it took twenty years to understand this American lie, although it was clear from the very beginning.

    Are the Americans already slower than the Estonian people? Has Eestooonia infected the entire NATU?

      The US never says that they take one and a half million barrels of oil a day from Iraq and made Israel happy by destroying Iraq. Yes ! The US has just sent its own terrorist hire to steal Syrian oil. Everything is more democratic

        They are now promising Europe (promise does not mean marriage) a million barrels a day.

        Stolen. At an exorbitant price.

    Accused. So what's next? Fabricated conspiracies, dubious presidential elections, billions of dollars allocated to Ukraine, which not all Americans can find on the globe? It should be noted that fancy democracies do not work. Biden can stumble as many times as he wants and reach out to say hello to the shadows. And still there are no legal mechanisms for his re-election. Rather, they are present (a system of checks and balances), but it is not realistic to excite it, because everyone is bought! American democracy is dead. By the way, Biden called those who voted for Trump semi-fascists. It’s normal to call a good half of the country like that. So, what is next?

    Russia may strike at airports in Poland through which NATO military aid for Ukraine arrives - US senator. "There is a lot of talk about nuclear strikes, but I'm worried about a possible Russian attack inside NATO territory. For example, targeting an airport in Poland or some other distribution point," Senator Marco Rubio told CNN.

    It is such publications, which do not report anything new, that create the illusion of the existence of a free press.
    Of course, nothing threatens this journalist, unlike Assange, who really stepped on a sore spot.

    How is it that an American journalist was admitted with dissent to the federal American channel? Something on so in neighboring kingdom.
