FROM: CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY, CIA2.
December 12-14, 2008 -- Michael Hayden is desperate to remain as CIA Director, for he has to keep the "Jewels" from falling into the wrong hands....Crown Jewels about the White House Murder Inc., Jewels about the Shadow Government operating off balance sheets of the GAO...NSA run-amock, rogue operations galore, CIA2 Matrix of assassinations world wide...PNAC to be born-again... etc.
FROM: CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
Retired Air Force General Michael Hayden is pulling out all the stops to remain as the head of the CIA under the Barack Obama administration. Hayden has already received the endorsement of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Sylvestre Reyes (D-TX), who has called on Obama to retain Hayden as CIA director for a period of time similar to the extension in office offered to and accepted by Defense Secretary Robert Gates....and the DNI is in the same uncomfortable situation.... Meanwhile:
As I recall, once in the past a CIA director was appointed at a time when the Agency needed to recover from a reputation for scandal and illegality. At that time President Ford went outside the agency and appointed an experienced politician/diplomat with (AFAIK) no prior connections in the intelligence world - namely George H.W. Bush. My recollection is also that Bush did a rather good job (others may disagree....? ).
Is there some reason why Obama shouldn't do the same....?
Sources say that Obama's team is having trouble finding a potential CIA director who lacks politically incriminating links to controversial Bush Administration policies and yet commands the respect of the agency's rank and file. Potential nominees include John Gannon, a Bush era Homeland Security official and Clinton-era intelligence officer and Jami Miscik, former chief of the CIA's directorate of analysis. The New York source.... reported that New York crisis management consultant Jack Devine, a former CIA chief of operations, is also a potential candidate.
Yesterday, Hayden hosted a day-long ceremony at CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia that honored the late Polish Army Colonel and CIA spy Ryszard Kuklinski. Kuklinski spied for the CIA from 1972 until his exfiltration from Poland in November 1981 after Polish counter-intelligence discovered the Polish military high command had a senior spy in its midst. Kuklinski and his family lived under false identities in the United States for a number of years. Kuklinski died in 2004 in Tampa, Florida.
Kuklinski photographed over 40,000 classified documents and provided them or the information derived from them to the CIA via dead drops, rolling hand-offs, and ciphered burst transmissions. Five CIA station chiefs in Warsaw assisted Kuklinski during his espionage mission. The wives of the CIA station chiefs assisted their husbands in site selection for clandestine meetings and dead drops.
Although it is believed that Kuklinski made contact with U.S. intelligence in 1972 during a sail boat excursion from Poland to West Germany, which was, in actuality, a Polish espionage mission on NATO sea defenses, there is a belief by some in the CIA that Kuklinski was recruited when he served in Saigon, South Vietnam during the Vietnam War as a member of the International Control Commission (ICC). The other two members were Canada, representing the West and India, representing the non-aligned bloc. Poland was the only Communist nation with representatives in Saigon during the duration of the Vietnam War. Polish ICC members were targets for recruitment by the CIA station in Saigon as well as by Canadian ICC members working for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), and, hence, the CIA.
By the time of the Carter administration, Kuklinski's espionage for the CIA was highly-prized by his fellow Pole, President Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Hayden's special guest yesterday at the CIA ceremony honoring Kuklinski was Brzezinski, who said "based on Kuklinski's information, a fatal blow was dealt to the imperial structure of the Soviet Union." It was also revealed yesterday that Brzezinski decided to provide direct U.S. military aid to the Afghan mujahidin against the Soviet Union as a way to demonstrate to the Polish Solidarity movement that the U.S. was prepared to assist them directly as well. The Afghan mujahidin gave rise to the Taliban , "Al Qaeda." and all the joint creations of the PNAC murderers of CIA2/MOSSAD and MI6 etc.
After Hayden's and Brzezinski's remarks at the CIA auditorium, they left together. I learned that Hayden's ceremony for Kuklinski has moved Brzezinski to the point where Brzezinski heartily endorses Hayden remaining as CIA director. It is expected that Brzezinski, who is a senior adviser to Obama, will press the president-elect to keep Hayden on board at Langley. Hayden's terms as National Security Agency (NSA) director and Deputy Director of National Intelligence have been controversial for his support for the Bush administration's electronic surveillance and torture/rendition policies.
The CIA ceremony honoring Kuklinski concurrently saw the release of a number of de-classified CIA documents dealing with the intelligence provided by the Polish colonel on Warsaw Pact military strategy and Poland's plans for martial law in 1981.
I was present at the CIA headquarters yesterday for the Hayden-Brzezinski "CIA Polish Day" ceremonies. Hayden quickly skirted past me after I nodded to him while offering a perfunctory greeting...
The CIA has not changed very much from my visits there in xxxx. My return to the agency after ... years, on a day that was rainy and dark, was eerie, to say the least. The "surveillance detection run" by the bus that took the participants in the seminar to another location to be "dog sniffed," prior to driving to the agency, added to the surreality of the day.
CIA employees are still smarting from the Porter Goss regime but also still suffer from the "group think" that has plagued the agency since the foundation of the joint venture of CIA2/MOSSAD/ISI/"Al-Qaeda....
If Obama agrees with Brzezinski and keeps Hayden on as CIA2 director, Obama's problems with the "Democratic wing" of the Democratic Party are certain to increase a thousand folds.....

Soviets in Afghanistan:
According to former CIA Director Robert Gates's memoir From the
Shadows, the big expansion of the US covert operation in Afghanistan
began in 1984. During this year, "the size of the CIA's covert program
to help the Mujahidin increased several times over," reaching a level
of about $500 million in US and Saudi payments funneled through the
Zia regime in Pakistan. As Gates recalled, "it was during this period
 that we began to learn of a significant increase in the number
of Arab nationals from other countries who had traveled to Afghanistan
to fight in the Holy War against the Soviets. They came from Syria,
Iraq, Algeria, and elsewhere, and most fought with the Islamic
fundamentalist Muj groups, particularly that headed by Abdul Resaul
Sayyaf. We examined ways to increase their participation, perhaps in
the form of some sort of 'international brigade,' but nothing came of
it. Years later, these fundamentalist fighters trained by the
Mujaheddin in Afghanistan would begin to show up around the world,
from the Middle East to New York City, still fighting their Holy War
only now including the United States among their enemies. Our mission
was to push the Soviets out of Afghanistan. We expected a post-Soviet
Afghanistan to be ugly, but never considered that it would become a
haven for terrorists operating worldwide." (Gates 349) But the
international brigade Gates talked about was in fact created as the
group now known as al Qaeda. (Tarpley, 9/11 Synthetic Terror, pp.
Anatomy of "a" Victory: CIA's Covert Afghan War
"On a secret visit by the CIA director to plan strategy for the war against
Soviet forces in Afghanistan, helicopters lifted CIA director William Casey
to three secret training camps near the Afghan border, where he watched
mujahidin rebels fire heavy weapons and learn to make bombs with
CIA-supplied plastic explosives and detonators.
During the visit, Casey startled his Pakistani hosts by proposing that they
take the Afghan war into enemy territory -- into the Soviet Union itself.
Casey wanted to ship subversive propaganda through Afghanistan to the Soviet
Union's predominantly Muslim southern republics. The Pakistanis agreed, and
the CIA soon supplied thousands of Korans, as well as books on Soviet
atrocities in Uzbekistan and tracts on historical heroes of Uzbek
nationalism, according to Pakistani and Western officials.
