Edited by Jefferson Morley, The Deep State is the thinking person’s portal to the world of secret government. Hosted by author/editor Jefferson Morley, this site provides revelatory reporting and informed commentary on the machinations of the CIA, NSA, and other intelligence agencies. The site also serves readers as a reliable BS detector on the so-called “deep state” by fact-checking news stories, debunking populist conspiracy theories, and deflating state-sponsored propaganda. By documenting the malign influence of secret intelligence agencies on our politics and world, the site empowers citizens to become activists on war and peace.
