Last week, former CIA director and current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke at Texas A&M University and proudly announced, “What’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It was like — we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment.” And the students applauded. [Let’s look deeper. Everyone present was in agreement that, as head of the CIA, Pompeo was defending America against the ‘bad guys’ in the world. He was seen as hero and savior. The students applauded, because they, too, would gladly lie, cheat, steal – and even kill if it would save American lives and defend liberty, justice, and prosperity? Isn’t that what we have to do in war? Wouldn’t you lie to save someone’s life? So there you have it. As long as people fail to see a difference between their country and their leaders, as long as they think that men become saints and heroes merely by being elected or appointed to public office, we shall have to endure widespread approval of comments like this. ] -GEG
Former CIA director and now Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has long accused WikiLeaks of being a “non-state hostile intelligence agency”, usually manipulated by Russia. Since Pompeo first made this claim as CIA Director in April 2017, countless major US news sources from NPR to CNN to the Washington Post have uncritically repeated the line, smearing Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as “Russian agents,” and more broadly using the narrative to stifle independent journalism and government whistleblowers.
But whether Pompeo or any other current or former CIA director makes such a bombastic claim without offering evidence — such as more recently asserting that China and Russia have “helped destroy” Venezuela through faltering investments, should anyone ever believe a high CIA official? Certainly the mainstream media routinely takes intelligence officials simply at their word, but Pompeo himself recently admitted the CIA is in the business oflying, cheating, and stealing.
Last week Mike Pompeo spoke at Texas A&M University, itself long
known for being a favored recruiting ground of the CIA, considering too
that one of the university’s last presidents, Robert Gates, was CIA
chief and later served as Bush and Obama’s Secretary of Defense.
During the Q&A session, Pompeo boasted that in the CIA both the training and culture are geared toward the following:
“We lied, we cheated, we stole.”
Interestingly, a Christian religious news broadcaster was the only
media that seemed to pick up on Pompeo’s words last week, and described
it as follows: “that’s not the resume of the Secretary of State… that’s the resume of Satan.”

Assange has been given political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, but pressure may be applied to bring him to the US to face charges.
