The Ride has Begun

I suggested in a previous post that

BushCo has irreperably damaged its relations with the CIA and with the Pentagon. They have pissed off some serious and powerful people in these agencies. I have no idea what they could do, or how they would do it, but the CIA has successfully overthrown democracies for the US throughout the world. Perhaps they'll do the same for their own country.

The Tenet resignation indicates this is just what's occurring, via an article cited at length by Kurt Nimmo: COUP D'ETAT: The Real Reason Tenet and Pavitt Resigned from the CIA on June 3rd and 4th by Michael C. Ruppet and Wayne Madsen. Here's the beginning of their article:

JUNE 8, 2004 1600 PDT (FTW) - Why did DCI George Tenet suddenly resign on June 3rd, only to be followed a day later by James Pavitt, the CIA's Deputy Director of Operations (DDO)?

The real reasons, contrary to the saturation spin being put out by major news outlets, have nothing to do with Tenet's role as taking the fall for alleged 9/11 and Iraqi intelligence "failures" before the upcoming presidential election.

Both resignations, perhaps soon to be followed by resignations from Colin Powell and his deputy Richard Armitage, are about the imminent and extremely messy demise of George W. Bush and his Neocon administration in a coup d'etat being executed by the Central Intelligence Agency. The coup, in the planning for at least two years, has apparently become an urgent priority as a number of deepening crises threaten a global meltdown.

Based upon recent developments, it appears that long-standing plans and preparations leading to indictments and impeachment of Bush, Cheney and even some senior cabinet members have been accelerated, possibly with the intent of removing or replacing the entire Bush regime prior to the Republican National Convention this August.
Shortly after the "surprise" Tenet-Pavitt resignations, current and former senior members of the U.S. intelligence community and the Justice Department told journalist Wayne Madsen, a former Naval intelligence officer, that they were directly connected to the criminal investigation of a 2003 White House leak that openly exposed Valerie Plame as an undercover CIA officer. What received less attention was that the leak also destroyed a long-term CIA proprietary intelligence gathering operation which, as we will see, was of immense importance to US strategic interests at a critical moment.

Here's an excerpt from later in the article:

The Bush administration has proved itself to be an insular group of inept, dishonest and dangerous CEO's of the corporation known as America. They have become very bad for business and the Board of Directors is now taking action. Make no mistake, the CIA works for "The Board" - Wall Street and big money. The long-term (very corrupt and unethical) agenda of the Board, in the face of multiple worsening global crises, was intended to proceed far beyond the initially destructive war in Iraq, toward an effective reconstruction and a strategic response to Peak Oil. But the neocons have stalled at the ugly stage: killing hundreds of thousands of people; destroying Iraq's industrial and cultural infrastructure as their own bombs and other people's RPGs blow everything up; getting caught running torture camps; and making the whole world intensely dislike America.

These jerks are doing real damage to their masters' interests.

And finally:

It is one of the greatest ironies of the Plame affair that the Bush administration, spawned and nurtured by oil, might have committed suicide by vindictively, cruelly and unthinkingly exacting personal retribution on an intelligence officer who had committed no offense, and who was, quite possibly, providing the administration with critical oil-related intelligence which the President needed to manage our shaky economy and affairs of state for a while longer to squeak through to re-election.

I had a strong feeling the Plame scandal would be the one thing that could bring down BushCo: you don't fuck the CIA up the ass and not expect them to reciprocate tenfold. The article gives a succinct accounting of the nexus between the CIA, Big Oil, BushCo & their family of companies, Saudi Arabia, Ahmed Chalabi, and what could be a covert operation by America's own intelligence agency to depose its sitting president. It's vital reading. (This article by Chris Floyd makes for a good footnote as it paints the Iraq war as a "dust-up in the boardroom".)

And so, in a truly classical display of dramaturgy, we see the heroes brought down by their own hubris in a poetic justice worthy of Shakespeare.

But the show is not over yet. The last act will prove to be filled with classical dramaturgy's demand for a body-count in the denouement. With the inevitable slide of Smirky McClusterfuck into an increasingly unhinged political paranoia -- a real textbook case of bunker mentality -- we're going to see a political dogfight in America unequalled since the days before the Civil War. I can't predict who's going to win, but BushCo makes up in rabid zealotry what they lack in competence, and they are going to be vicious and fierce. You can be certain that if they go down, they're going to bring lots of others down with them -- whole populations aren't out of the question. Never underestimate the strength, tenacity and vengefulness of zealots -- they make formidable adversaries, especially when forced to confront realities contrary to their worldviews.

Unfortunately a lot of innocent people live in the warzone. What's that expression...something about "in a battle between elephants, the ants get squashed"?

The ride has begun.
