Sir,
So you think that Haspel really could be arrested or otherwise taken out?

I thought maybe you were testing your readership to see who among us is susceptible to the info-war raging in the media and on the internets.

I take your point that if that is an event that serious and respect worthy people (like yourself) believe within the realm of possibility, then it needs to be disproven ASAP if she is actually free and going about her usual business.

If she's not free and going about her business, then ...wow!

Yes

Keith Harbaugh

My view: If the CIA Director has better things to do with her time than disprove every wild-ass rumor that pops up on the internet, that's fine with me and seems quite reasonable.
If she has better things to do than appear in public, what's wrong with that?

My wife just gave me a Tee shirt that says "I need new conspiracy theories, all my old ones came true"

Have a laugh.
Note the time and source of the video.
Nowadays, in CNN-land, the machines are 100% secure and only an orange conspiracy theorist would doubt they were.

In my 24 years at the other well-known IC agency, I encountered a phenomenon similar to Gina Haspel’s. Mid-way through my time there I became head of data processing for a primary targets. On the office staff, our personnel officer, whom I knew very well, was a young woman close-friend of our older, married chief; she’d followed him from job to job. Her primary claim to fame was arranging lavish parties for the office and higher-level organizations. No technical skills or background whatsoever. About 25 years later, working as a contractor at the primary IC agency, I met up with her in a hallway with a contingent of suits. I greeted her but she seemed barely to know me, my surprise. I learned she’d become the Deputy Director of my previous agency, the highest civilian official. (The 3-star Director, much publicized in the media, was typically a non-entity getting his ticket punched.) People that knew her said she’d advanced so far so fast through social skills alone that she was way above any level of competence, describing her “a deer caught in the headlights.”

“So take my advice, and never go to sea, and you’ll become the ruler of the queen’s Nay-vee."

I stopped trusting or believing any of them a long time ago. I want proof that she is happily at work. You think I go to the trouble of keeping this blog because I think the government is in good hands? Sure. I just love having a target on my back.

Turcopolier,

It is these little stories that makes this blog, one the most authentic in the alt-media sphere. Your story made me chuckle colonel.

With regards to the rumor, maybe she is 'dead', as in she's been fired by Trump. There has been a quite firings at DoD, HS, State, DoJ... I think the special forces' raid in Frankfurt a while back was enough to do her. Barr too is apparently so close to being fired by Trump.

Does anyone remember back in '19 during Trump's SOTU speech at Congress how weirdly she was acting and when he brought up regime change in Venezuela she got up and started clapping and all. Odd woman indeed!

mcohen

evidently the Iranian scientist and family "defected".sounds good.stop the planned Iranian policy change by Biden in its tracks.

BillWade

Maybe she's busy cleaning up Hunter.

The following video does not have my total trust and endorsement. I do believe the first ten minutes are worth your time.

This was linked from a source that I do not always trust, but which definitely does get SOME facts right:

https://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2020/12/more-stunning-information-about-the-frankfurt-raid-with-gina-haspel-and-simon-parkes-must-see-video-3736528.html

Interestingly, many sources of verifiable facts believe that Q posts on 8kun are worthwhile. One such source is CodeMonkeyZ:


Another 8kun-friendly source noted that Trump says anons basically just support good government, but suggested that CNN should not get any clicks:

I have always believed that whatever country was involved in the release of covid also nuclear capability.just my intuition.after looking at all the variables I believe Iran to be the source.this is based on whatever it takes type sacrifice which Iran is capable of such as the human waves in the Iraq war.
if the Iranian guy was responsible or he can confirm then in the next 2 weeks there will a bombing of all military sites in Iran.imho.

@ mcohen... seems like thomas wictor is a paid agent for ksa with those youtube videos he spins.... i wonder who pays him?

@ spen
This reminds me; has anyone seen Michael D'Andrea this year?

Beat me to it !
That's what i thought when I saw the title.
And yet, Iran lost two guys this year. Wonder whether The Dark Prince is still alive and where he is living.
Hope not in Mauritius where his wife is living.

Like I read somewhere on Twitter:

It cant simultaneously be true that Tehran is fully infiltrator by US & Israel, and also that anyone Iran arrests as a spy is an innocent hostage academic/journo.

Artemesia

mcohen:
-- release of covid
-- nuclear capable
-- capable of self-sacrifice

Hmm.
That fits Israel to a T.

a. Israel was first off the mark to announce a cure for covid -- just a few days after WHO declared it a pandemic, if memory serves

b. Avner Cohen (any relation?) has written on Israel's nuclear weapons, and Dem-then-Republican senator Arlen Specter went to great pains to protect Zalman Shapiro, who was head of NUMEC when uranium went missing, said to have been shipped to Israel to make its nuclear bombs.

c. Michael Ledeen has spoken and written about the long tradition of "Jews killing Jews" -- first at Mount Sinai where Levites killed those Hebrews unwilling to invade Canaan. Ledeen, an outspoken advocate for war in Iraq, brought that tradition to the present with his bold statement, "I am a proud Levite."

Artemesia,

The Isreali's did it is a new one on the Covid front.

Maybe Haspel is like Hilary Clinton when she "disappeared" during her last days on the government payroll - getting some major plastic surgery done while still on the public dime?

Clinton looked so "refreshed" when she emerged for her Benghazi hearings, after her self-imposed solitary confinement for an alleged slip and fall. Be sure to observe before and after photos of Haspel if/when she also re-emerges.

What is with these Democrats - they keep slipping and falling - proof they are systemically unbalanced. Is Biden due for some more hair plugs, botox and skin-tightening pulls, like Kamala Harris quickly got when the spotlight finally shone upon her aging visage.

Which raises the next question the media keeps overlooking - how did Nancy Pelosi get her eyebrows back down from the center of her forehead to now closer to her hollowed out eye sockets. Micro-blading brows like Michelle Obama got before she also left the WH?

No wonder Pelosi is so interested in getting someone else to pay for "health care".

Keith Harbaugh

Some above seem to have a negative view of Ms. Haspel.
In contrast, Michael Scheuer has written the following about her:

"The current CIA Director is one of the officers I worked with,
and she, almost single-handedly,
helped CIA’s bin Laden unit destroy an al-Qaeda organization in Eurasia.
I have always admired her greatly for her brains, personal courage,
and for never, in my experience, flinching from truth and duty."

Do you know Scheuer? I do. He is one of the stranger dingbats in the world of intelligence puffery. I am perhaps one of the others.

Keith Harbaugh

My sole knowledge of Michael Scheuer is from reading two of his books, "Imperial Hubris" and "Marching Towards Hell", and from occasional reading of his blogs, one now defunct and one current.

His understanding of issues, of what the problems are, seemed admirable to me.
Where I hsd severe disagreements was with his proposed solutions to the problems, which always seemed to relsy too much on force and even bloodshed.
E.g., his statement in the blog post cited above:
"I still want blood, and want it soon."
That certainly sounds over the top to me.
But it didn't diminish my valuation of his professional assessment of Gina Haspel.

NAY!!!! Treason??? Land sakes honeydear, you sound like a Prog. 'Tis a boon. The hardest debts of all to acknowledge are the ones we owe to our bad examples. This exquisitely cringeworthy and teachable demonstration can be shown to school children as such.

Keith Harbaugh,

I used to read Michael Scheuer's blog and would enjoy watching him debate people at TV. I still do check out his blog from time to time just to see what is the newest thin he's angry at. But the reality is that he has gone off-rails, he is believer of Qanon, still believes Trump drained the Swamp, Trump was a God-send and Israel had nothing to do with his administration's policies. I even remember him calling Trump to bomb Iran and Syria with nukes and all. He is not principled and nuanced like Colonel Lang here, but seems quite deranged and on the verge of explosion. For God's sake he married an actual CIA torturer some years back and seems okay with bombing and torturing and killing and nuking nowadays. And I am saying this as a libertarian not a leftist, but boy he's changed so much from 2000s. His best moment IMO was when he decimated those pro-Israeli congressmen during a House testimony I think back in 2013-2014...

Leith

I expect Gina is keeping a low profile due to the threats against her by some Qanon believers.

The bigger question to me is: Who will replace her as D/CIA?

Admiral Whitworth, J2 for the Joint Staff would be a good choice. As would General Haugh, Commander of AFI; Admiral Aeschbach, Commander of ONI, and General Potter, Army G2. Mike Morrell, former Acting D/CIA, is said to be in the running but faces pushback. Same for Tom Donilon, former Natl Scty Advisor for Obama. But the smart money is on LtGen Stewart former DIA Director; or Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin, a CIA analyst in the early 2000s and later a senior assistant to DNI and she held senior posts in DoD and State.
