The Mission and operation strategies of today’s CIA

crew-22312113An occasional reader on this site has taken exception with the CIA funding ISIS, ISIL, al-Qaeda, and what may be left of Osama bin Laden’s Mujahideen.

 

logoIt’s true, the CIA sets up and backs these groups in an attempt to avoid blood and treasure of our own and allied troops.

A brief history of the CIA follows.

The CIA website

Every developed country has its own spies and counter-intelligence agencies.

Truthfully, they all spy on their enemies and allies alike.

The aim with groups like ISIS is to develop them, turn them into spies against their own groups, if not, be done with them.

“Three Realities We Aren’t Being Told About Afghanistan. “US is Not Fighting Terrorism”

Originally in Afghanistan, it was payback time for the attack on our Twin Towers on 9-11-01.

Then on to Iraq to take out Saddam Hussein who gassed his own citizens and did, in fact, have weapons of mass destruction hidden within his country.

The New York Times published an article this week that has re-ignited a 12-year-old debate:

Was then-President George W. Bush right about Iraq?

 

 

The report examined U.S. service personnel’s encounters with abandoned chemical weapons in Iraq.

Some conservatives were quick to pounce on the story as evidence that claims by Bush in the lead-up to the war that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction were true and that the United States’ 2003 invasion was justified.

The article by Times reporter C.J. Chivers focused on U.S. soldiers who suffered from exposure to the sulfur mustard and other nerve gasses which emitted from the bombs.

According to the story, about “5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs” were found scattered across Iraqi soil.

The U.S. government buried the cases from both the public and the troops.

As a result, injured soldiers did not receive proper medical treatment.

Since sources told us at the time we went there to secure their oil, since we are no longer dependent upon the Middle-East for fossil fuel, what with new finds in America and fracking, we are energy independent.

Thus begging the question why are we still there?

Since the Iraqi Army, for the most part, has been a joke.

When faced with serious battles they have tended to cut and run, leaving heavy weapons for their enemies in the region to use.

 

Militant Islamist fighters take part in a military parade along the streets of northern Raqqa province June 30, 2014. Militant Islamist fighters held a parade in Syria's northern Raqqa province to celebrate their declaration of an Islamic "caliphate" after the group captured territory in neighbouring Iraq, a monitoring service said. The Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot previously known as Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), posted pictures online on Sunday of people waving black flags from cars and holding guns in the air, the SITE monitoring service said.

This History of the CIA

CIA Vision, Mission, Ethos & Challenges

Vision

CIA’s information, insights, and actions consistently provide tactical and strategic advantage for the United States Mission

Preempt threats and further US national security objectives by collecting intelligence that matters, producing objective all-source analysis, conducting effective covert action as directed by the President, and safeguarding the secrets that help keep our Nation safe.

Ethos

The officers of the CIA are guided by a professional ethos that is the sum of our abiding principles, core values, and highest aspirations. This ethos holds us on

This ethos holds us on a course, as we exercise the extraordinary influence and authorities with which we have been entrusted to protect the Nation and advance its interests. CIA’s ethos has many dimensions, including:

  • Service. We put Nation first, Agency before unit, and mission before self. We take pride in being diverse, inclusive, agile, responsive, and consequential.
  • Integrity. We uphold the highest standards of lawful conduct. We are truthful and forthright, and we provide information and analysis without institutional or political bias. We maintain the Nation’s trust through accountability and oversight.
  • Excellence. We bring the best of our diverse backgrounds and expertise to everything we do. We are self-aware, reflecting on our performance and learning from it. We strive to give all officers the tools, experiences, and leadership they need to excel.
  • Courage. We accomplish difficult, high-stakes, often dangerous tasks. In executing mission, we carefully manage risk but we do not shy away from it. We value sacrifice and honor our fallen.
  • Teamwork. We stand by and behind one another. Collaboration, both internal and external, underpins our best outcomes. Diversity and inclusion are mission imperatives.
  • Stewardship. We preserve our ability to obtain secrets by protecting sources and methods from the moment we enter on duty until our last breath.

Key Challenges

  • Close intelligence gaps with enhanced collection and analysis on the countries, non-state actors, and issues most critical to the President and senior national security team.
  • Fulfill our global mission to give customers decision advantage as they confront an unprecedented volume and diversity of worldwide developments that affect US interests.
  • Leverage technological advances for better performance in all mission areas—collection, analysis, covert action, and counterintelligence—while protecting against technological threats to the security of our information, operations, and officers.
  • Improve the ways we attract, develop, and retain talent to maximize each CIA officer’s potential to contribute to achieving the mission.
  • Better manage Agency resources during a period of fiscal austerity.

  1. The problem with this analysis is that it fails to discuss their mental capabilities of many nations. The Middle-East is not educated nor do they have manufacturing or much agriculture.

    The Islamic Nations have about1400 years of inbreeding which has many disadvantages from an intelligence point of view.

    Then. there is the educational system of the Islamic states – there is none.

    It is difficult to believe that these nomadic tribes can operate computers and do complex strategy planning for war. Design complex IED devices and use cell phones and other complex electronic tools.

    On the other hand, America has the most advanced training, education and technology available and ever known to mankind.

    So, the Muslim warriors are stupid and ignorant while our guys are smart, trained and very educated.

    So, why does American even need these CIA spies?

    How does the Muslim Nations even train Spies?

    The logistics of training, arming and feeding an Army is a complex task. Just planning a vacation for a group of 50 people is a challenge. Consequently, I do not believe that ISIS or ISIL is a Muslim Army. Plus these guys are driving U. S. Equipment. Ever notice how these guys are always covered up – completely.

    If America simply pulls out its complete support for these folks they will starve in a short period of time. That tactic is exactly what General MacArthur did in the Battle of the Pacific. MacArthur simply bypassed many Islands and cut off their supplies. Guess what – no more battles and no more loss of life.

    The CIA is basically useless in these type of situations.

    • Try reading it a bit slower Dave your questions have been answered, unless they were not the scope of this posting.

    • Complex strategy? “The logistics of training, arming and feeding an Army is a complex task.” Really? Since when was this their method? Who are the “stupid” ones?

      Try guerrilla warfare. Try hit and run tactics. Look what they did to the Russians for 9 years in Afghanistan.
      Try our stupidity in repeating that error, becoming enmired in Afghanistan; a country which is 50% rugged, mountainous terrain, more than twice the size of Arizona.

      Fk the misguided attitude of the CIA.

      BTW – their “culture”… Go back to WWII strategy, not this &*#$ U.N. multicultural “win hearts and minds” B.S.
      Don’t go to war on their terms. Only when justified, and then go in to annihilate the enemy so they can’t ever pose the threat again.

  2. In 1986 and 1987 I lived in Jersey City NJ. This was being planned clear back then. My neighborhood was crawling with Muslims. Some ignored us but others were openly hostile. Every afternoon my friend and I walked to the A&P on Kennedy Blvd. An old faded 4-door sedan would pull up and double park. Two men would get out and help the OLD BLIND SHEIK out, lead him across the sidewalk to the stairs that led to his Mosque which was upstairs over the grocery store. My friend or I would hold the door open for them. They always thanked us politely. After the 1993 FIRST bombing of World Trade Center, the sheik was arrested for planning it. He is doing LIFE in a Federal Prison. I read an article years ago that was from EITHER the FBI or CIA. They said the sheik did not come here until 1991 because he was in prison in Egypt! I BEG TO DIFFER! He was there at LEAST as early as 1987 if not 1986. Because Those two years were the ONLY time I lived there and I saw him nearly every day. I do not remember when I FIRST saw him but he was there a long time before I left! So, our “intelligence” agencies do not know EVERYTHING!

  3. My point was and remains, WHOM is doing the planning for ISIS? American special operations people – IMO.

    The Muslims are simply not smart enough to plan n complex mission! Again IMO
