Is Lt. Col. Vindman CIA?

Share on Social Media

The title question would seem to be just about the most obvious one that a person could raise, considering Alexander Vindman’s background, his associations, and his most recent behavior. The fact that hardly anyone seems to be making it is just one more reason, I believe, that he very likely is working for the CIA and has been throughout his military career. Actually, very much to his credit, Rush Limbaugh has observed that Vindman appears to be employed by people other than those in his chain of command. He just stops short of speculating as to who, exactly, that might be, like, say, the CIA.

We’re talking about the Jewish Ukrainian American military officer in the middle of the ginned-up Adam Schiff-Nancy Pelosi-MSM impeachment inquiry. From all indications, he is the man who shared his supposed concerns about President Donald Trump’s July 25, 2019, telephone conversation with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky with the “whistleblower.” The latter person has been widely identified as the Yalie, CIA analyst, and Democratic Party partisan, 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella. On its face, Vindman would appear to be acting in an insubordinate fashion toward the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces, of which he is a part. At the same time, if we have learned nothing more from the entire Russiagate fiasco, it is that the U.S. intelligence community, abetted by the Operation Mockingbird press, has been in a state of almost open revolt against Donald Trump for quite some time now. What could explain the man’s behavior better than that he is a part of that crowd?

Taken at face value, Vindman’s actions would appear to be an absolute career killer. What incredible effrontery for a United States military officer to sneak around behind the back of the United States President, providing what should be considered classified information to said President’s obvious political enemy, to be leaked to the enemy press and the enemy Congress to put the President in the worst possible light! Even worse, the bad-light-shining is accomplished by mischaracterizing the core information being leaked. Yet, Vindman, this obvious careerist-to-the-core even followed up with a willing performance before the President’s chief Congressional antagonist, Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

If our government institutions and the lines of authority are all to be taken at face value, Vindman’s actions absolutely defy explanation. I think that I can say without fear of contradiction that this is not a man who is acting purely from principle, the cost to himself and his career bedamned. Rather, this is clearly a rather typical careerist who is acting according to where his bread is buttered, and he knows full well that it is not buttered in the conventional, straightforward manner.

Unless things change rather radically in the country in the next few years, you can take it to the bank that there will be no cost to Vindman’s career, which, as I have indicated, there surely would be if Vindman’s real chain of command were what it would appear to be on paper. My guess is that it is more likely that his career will flourish. The reason for that is that being a member of the CIA would make him a member of the secret government, which, at this point in our history, is more powerful than the government that we see on the public organization chart.

Why the CIA for Vindman?

Let’s consider other reasons for my supposition other than the man’s odd recent behavior. In today’s United States, a military career is not held in very high esteem in the Jewish community. It would be much more attractive to the young Vindman and his family, however, if he were assured that he had a special inside track to advancement in the American halls of power through the cover of a military career. Up to now, that promise, if made, looks like it has come pretty close to having been kept, what with his White House job, his national prominence, and all.

From the CIA’s perspective, Vindman’s multicultural background in an important strategic area brings a lot to the table. He is said to be fluent in both Ukrainian and Russian. Once they had recruited him as a covert operative, the next order of business would be finding an appropriate cover for him. Two of the most popular are State Department and private business. There’s nothing to prevent them from using military service, however. One would have to be extraordinarily naïve to believe that it is not done. With service in the military officer corps, as with State Department service, the CIA, in addition to cover, would gain the additional benefit of influence within the upper reaches of that organization.

That latter purpose is widely on display. In my article, “Spooks on the Hill,” I have presented strong evidence that the halls of Congress are likely to be laced with CIA operatives in staff positions, if not in elected positions, themselves. If one were to look for likely current high-level elected officials on Langley’s payroll, one might start in Nebraska Senator and Yale product, Ben Sasse. Both his pedigree and his never-Trump-Republican policy positions virtually scream it out. If we’re looking for one who might have used military cover in the past, Arkansas’s ambitious Harvard Law School product and warmonger, Tom Cotton, would be high on my list. Among the current presidential candidates, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, with his rather curious military career and his fawning press, is the most likely candidate to be CIA. Of course, we already know that he was in Naval Intelligence, and might still be, for that matter.

Of course, it goes without saying that the Clinton and Bush crime families are the virtual poster children for the CIA, going back to the Mena Airport drug-smuggling operation and beyond and as indicated by their press promotion and protection, depending upon the need of the moment.  It had been clear that what had been prepared for the country in 2016 was a choice between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, and Donald Trump’s thwarting of those plans might well explain the press’s otherwise almost unexplainable extreme animus toward him.  This is certainly something that you are not going to hear from Rush Limbaugh or anyone at Fox News.

As the Wikipedia Operation Mockingbird page indicates, the press has been virtually chockablock with CIA operatives, and, from all indications, still is. I have written about a very likely candidate in the person of another Yale Law School product, J.D. Vance, in my recent article, “Hillbilly Agent?” If my title question is answered affirmatively, he would have been another who used the military as cover, in his case, the Marines.

Now some of the few people who listened to Lt. Col. Vindman testify and respond to questions, might come to the conclusion that he really doesn’t sound smart enough to be a likely candidate for intelligence work. To those people, I offer just two words in response, “John Brennan.”

  1. Is the following of interest ?


    Various writers lament the headless fourth branch of U.S. government and the Deep State. It is submitted to be the same force that has been active in imposing oppressive tyrants and economic exploitation in nations around the world for decades as documented by William Blum, Michel Chossudovsky, Michael Hudson, and others. John Perkins has more definitively identified Wall Street as the nexus—behind cutouts. Wall Street bankers have been repeatedly connected with political disruptions in Greece, Argentina, Venezuela, and Syria among others. Douglas Valentine [CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME] has written that CIA actions he has witnessed worldwide in similar situations, with details revealed from interviews with agents, are being seen in the United States. Carroll Quigley claimed to have been inside the group. David Rockefeller touted it as utopian.

    The Federal Reserve has been the object of public criticism for decades, but instances identifying specific malfeasance have never been levied. Specific accounting procedures are now alleged to be used by the Federal Reserve to purloin billions daily from the government for the benefit of Wall Street bankers. Ref.

    The operational accounts of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks are audited by a national accounting firm and reported to Congress annually. What is NOT audited include client accounts which are exclusively managed by the FRBNY as fiscal agent for the government. These accounts disburse funds from the auctions of Treasury securities. Ref. 31 CFR 375.3. The accounts handle >$11 trillion annually. Over one trillion [new cash] seems to strangely disappear. Ref. The GAO has authority to audit any handling of government funds such as these upon request of any congressional committee. Such an audit has not occurred.

    Bloomberg recently used FOIA to obtain production of Federal Reserve records:
    “So long as records at the [Federal Reserve Banks] satisfy the plain language meaning of 12 C.F.R. § 261.2(i)(1), they qualify as agency records of the Board and are subject to FOIA requests. … Records of the Board include . . . all information coming into the possession and under the control of the Board, any Board member, any Federal Reserve Bank, or any officer, employee, or agent of the Board or of any Federal Reserve Bank, in the performance of functions for or on behalf of the Board that constitute part of the Board’s official files; or [records] [t]hat are maintained for administrative reasons in the regular course of business in official files in any division or office of the Board or any Federal Reserve Bank in connection with the transaction of any official business…The FRBs give all revenue in excess of expenses to the U.S. Treasury. 12 U.S.C. § 289.” Bloomberg L.P. v. Bd. of Governors of Fed. Reserve Sys., 649 F. Supp. 2d 262, 274 (S.D.N.Y. 2009), aff’d, 601 F.3d 143 (2d Cir. 2010).

    Wall Street’s involvement in the set-up of HMS Lusitania to pressure the US into military involvement in WW I. Ref. Wall Street had $450 million loan to Britain and more to other countries that would have defaulted if Germany won. Jacob Schiff invested $20 million in the Bolshevik revolution to seize the 600 million gold rubles held by the Czar. A USSR defector told Congress in 1946 that essential decisions that were not forthcoming from Moscow could be readily obtained from a Manhattan telephone number. It appears the USSR-Wall Street relationship was altered when the USSR declared bankruptcy and defaulted on Wall Street loans. The US-NATO invasion, and the current Ukraine-impeachment debacle appear to evidence a change. [:smile::smile: Does the story of IMF, Goldman Sachs, lose of tens of tons of gold in Ukraine banks, and Jews, fit in with the Trump-impeachment fiasco ? Ref. Lt. Col. Vindman has been suspected of being CIA. Ref. :blush::blush:]

    Communist China was established by US policy so Wall Street could have a redundant straw enemy to justify unrestricted military spending. Ref. WHILE YOU SLEPT by John Flynn; HOW THE FAR EAST WAS LOST by Anthony Kubek. Richard Nixon dissolved the scam when he opened China for trade and the CIA hounded him out of office with bogus CIA evidence and endless MSM agitation. [Does this sound familiar ?] RMN’s midnight massacre of 1700 CIA agents and his closing of the CIA school at Leadville training Tibetans to invade China may have also been factors.

    Robert Stinnett used FOIA to obtain government documents that Wall Street connived with their crony FDR for 17 months to pressure Japan to attack Pearl Harbor. Ref. DAY OF DECEIT. Wall Street feared the industrial competition of Japan. In Europe, Hitler was pictured as Man of the Year on the cover of TIME magazine and received funding from Wall Street according to Antony Sutton, but that was all altered after Hitler attacked Wall Street’s puppet state USSR.

    David Talbot and Stephen Kinzer have each written that Wall Street used their crony Allen Dulles to set up the CIA to conceal their nefarious acts behind national security. The CIA’s first coup was led by Kermit Roosevelt to restore the Shah to the Iranian throne so Wall Street oil moguls could acquire control of and rape the British Petroleum oil fields that had been nationalized. National domination, wars, and coups by debt have became the modus operandi of Wall Street to replace military invasion. Ref. The government of the U.S. received no benefit from the Iranian coup or any other coup yet the US taxpayers must pay for the CIA coup and worldwide US military enforcement in seven active theaters.

    John Perkins in CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN, Stephen Kinzer in THE BROTHERS, David Talbot in DEVIL’S CHESSBOARD, William Blum, and others identify the CIA, and also the US military, as the operating arms of Wall Street—along with the IMF and WB. Recent actions have seen direct State Department, DOJ, and FBI involvement.

    It is concluded the Deep State is being funded by embezzlement utilizing the accounts of Treasury security auctions. The testimony of State Department agents, and of the US military representatives, who recently testified they were motivated in their duties in Ukraine to support military hostility toward Russia which was not in compliance with the guidelines of the President is submitted to evidence the depth that Wall Street now controls the U.S. government and their hostility to any progression to peace. Greg Palast has written of an internal Wall Street memo identifying collection on the $20 trillion US National Debt to be the “ultimate goal.” One potential sequence that Wall Street might use to seize assets of the U.S. by bankruptcy is detailed at

    The Federal Reserve accounts are subject to FOIA requests. Inquiry as to a closely-held corporate ownership of the FR Board of Governors would be a relevant factor. If you agree with this analysis, knowledge of any entity [lawyer ? accounting firm ?] that might be interested in participating in, or endorsing, a FOIA suit would be appreciated
