Listen: Uncovering the CIA: Whistleblower Philip Agee interviewed with John Marks (1976)

31 October, 2021 — 21st Century Wire

Philip Agee was a former Central Intelligence Agency officer who turned into one of the agency’s most vocal critics, and who exposed the inner workings of Unites States regime change and destablizations operations all over the world. During his nearly four decades in the intelligence game, Agee became disillusioned with his work for the agency, and later went on to publish numerous books including “Inside the Company: CIA Diary” (1975) which infuriated US officials after identifying some 250 officers, front companies and foreign agents working for the CIA. Agee passed away in Havana, Cuba in 2008. During his activist career, Agee inspired a new wave of publications including Covert Action Information Bulletin, as well as numerous films detailing the clandestine exploits of the American deep state.

By Michael Welch and Michael Parenti

“Those larger institutional forces are directed by conscious human agency, and those agencies use conspiracy or non-conspiracy, they use conspiratorial forces or non-conspiratorial forces, and that the conspiratorial forces are important, they’re not rare exceptions, and that they are systemic in their nature and in their output.”  – Michael Parenti (from this week’s lecture.)

Women Lead Fight Against Police Violence in UK 

Black Agenda Radio with Nellie Bailey and Glen Ford
One reason Black women are in the forefront of British anti-police violence campaigns, is to counter the capitalist smear that Black families are “not capable of raising children, leading to criminality,” said Adam Elliott-Cooper, an activist and PhD candidate at King’s College, in London. Black women fight back by “articulating their love for family by challenging police violence.” Elliott-Cooper wrote a paper which concluded that every recent campaign to protest the killing of Blacks by British police has been led by a woman.

Shooter Capitalism

6 August 2019 — Anti-Capital

It, it being  capitalism, wears a thousand masks and obscures itself behind a thousand labels.  Called and calling itself at one time or another —laissez-faire, free market, conservative, liberal, neo-conservative, neo-liberal, progressive, neo-progressive, state, enlightened, gangster, welfare, welfare-state, party, non-partisan, crony, democratic, radical, responsible, racketeering, managed, bureaucratic, mercantilist, free-trade, protectionist, enclave, niche, tea-party, libertarian, populist, oligarch, sober, drunkard— it has always been capitalism and the adjectives, modifiers appended before or after are just so much….advertising, teething rings for suckers.

Nora Barrows-Friedman The Electronic Intifada Podcast 1 February 2019

1 February 2019 — Electronic Intifada

Welcome to a new era and a new format for The Electronic Intifada Podcast!

Joining Nora Barrows-Friedman as co-host for the first time is her colleague and fellow reporter Asa Winstanley.

This week we take a deeper look at Asa’s latest investigative article, “Fake Labour accounts fueling ‘anti-Semitism crisis’,” which went viral soon after publication.

We discuss how the story came about and the wider background of events in the UK Labour Party over the last few years.

Who is behind the “anti-Semitism crisis” in Labour? Is this media narrative having an effect? How is Israel like ISIS? Has there been any official response to the story?

What would Asa say to Jeremy Corbyn if he had another chance to interview him? And why do people who try to ban the term “Israel lobby” annoy the hell out of us?
