I am pleased and proud to introduce The Deep State, a project of the Independent Media Institute.
As editor and contributor, I will be covering the world’s secret intelligence agencies with journalistic rigor, diverse opinion and critical edge. I have been breaking news about the CIA since I wrote published “Confessions of a Contra” back in 1985. I will be blogging daily about the CIA, FSB, Mossad, MI6 or whatever spy service is in the news. I’ll do fact checking on “deep state” reporting in the mainstream and partisan press. And I’ll do my own reporting on the CIA’s ongoing role in the complex chaos of the Trump presidency.
The impact of IMI’s Deep State project is educational: to dispel conspiracy theories and refute government propaganda, while informing citizens about the realities of the CIA and secret intelligence services everywhere. The goal is to empower people, to educate voters and taxpayers, and ultimately to hold the CIA and its ilk accountable.
The Deep State will serve as the platform for a diverse range of voices on the world of secret intelligence services. We will create some short, sharp educational videos about the CIA: how it is organized, and how it executes secret operations at home and abroad.
You can find my writing for IMI online at its partner publications. I’ll be commenting on social media feeds, and distributing my reporting via email.
Here are a few recent articles from IMI’s Deep State project:
