The Hidden Government Group Linking JFK, Watergate, Iran-Contra and 9/11
By Peter Dale Scott
Peter Dale Scott is considered the father of “Deep Politics”— the study of hidden permanent institutions and interests whose influence on the political realm transcends the elected, appointed and career officials who come and go.
A Professor of English at Berkeley and a former Canadian diplomat, he is the author of several critically acclaimed books on the pivotal events of our country’s recent past, including Deep Politics and the Death of JFK ; Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina (War and Peace Library); The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America and American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan (War and Peace Library). He is also a poet, whose long work, Coming to Jakarta: A Poem about Terror, was hailed as “the most important political poem to appear in the English language in a very long time,” by Robert Hass, Poet Laureate of the United States from 1995 to 1997.
Daniel Ellsberg said of his book Drugs, Oil and War, “It makes most academic and journalistic explanations of our past and current interventions read like government propaganda written for children.”
What follows is based on a recent Scott lecture entitled “The JFK Assassination and Other Deep Events”, and will be expanded on further in his next book, The American Deep State, due out in November.
October 12, 2014 “ICH” – “WhoWhatWhy” – For some time now, I have been analyzing American history in the light of what I have called structural deep events: events, like the JFK assassination, the Watergate break-in, Iran-Contra, or 9/11, which repeatedly involve law-breaking or violence, are mysterious to begin with, are embedded in ongoing covert processes, have political consequences that enlarge covert government, and are subsequently covered up by systematic falsifications in the mainstream media and internal government records.
The more I study these deep events, the more I see suggestive similarities between them, increasing the possibility that they are not unrelated external intrusions on American history, but parts of an endemic process, sharing to some degree or other a common source.
For example, one factor linking Dallas, Watergate, Iran-Contra, and 9/11, has been the involvement in all four deep events of personnel involved in America’s highest-level emergency planning, known since the 1950s as Continuity of Government (COG) planning, or more colloquially inside the Pentagon as “the Doomsday Project.” A few of these actors may have been located at the top, as overseers of the secret COG system. Others – including some I shall talk about today – were located further down in its secret communications network.
I see this planning group as one among many in what I have chosen to call the American deep state, along with agencies like the CIA and NSA, the private groups like Booz Allen Hamilton to which more than half of the US intelligence budget is outsourced, and finally the powerful banks and corporations whose views are well represented in the CIA and NSA. But if only one group among many, the COG planning group is also special, because of its control of and access to a communications channel, not under government control, that can reach deeply into the US social structure. I discuss these matters at some length in my next book, The American Deep State, due out in November.

Panel includes: William Binney, NSA whistleblower; Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, EPA whistleblower; Jessica Desvarieux, journalist [moderator]; Phil Donahue, journalist; Thomas Drake, NSA whistleblower; and Kirk Wiebe, NSA whistleblower – September 22, 14
By James Corbett and Richard Gage
Global Research, September 09, 2014
William Binney was a 30 year career official at the NSA who resigned in October 2001 because of the flagrant and deliberate violations of the constitution that the agency was engaging in. For the last 13 years he has been working to hold the agency to account for its actions. Now he has signed the petition from the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth to call for a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks.
Today on GRTV, James Corbett talks to William Binney and Richard Gage about the NSA, 9/11, and the ongoing cover up surrounding the truth about September 11th.

Richard Gage, AIA, Drives Home Explosive Evidence
It’s the kind of rare opportunity that members of the 9/11 Truth Movement wish would come more often.
Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA, was invited to bring the evidence for the explosive demolition of the three World Trade Center towers to viewers of C-SPAN today on its morning program Washington Journal. His 45-minute appearance — which can be viewed here by those who did not see it live — is enabling the 9/11 Truth message to reach a national television audience of millions.
Gage explained to viewers that his organization, representing more than 2,200 architects and engineers, is focused on the science of the event and on calling for a new, independent investigation. He encouraged viewers to visit the AE911Truth.org website and watch the landmark video 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out.
“Every one of our [C-SPAN] viewers today should be calling their Congressmen and Senators and finding out why they’re not investigating the worst act of mass murder in U.S. history and the third-worst structural failure in modern history,” Gage said. “This is an extraordinary and unacceptable situation.”
Host Peter Slen told viewers that Gage was brought in as a guest because Washington Journal had received so many calls in recent months asking its other guests to address the issue of how Building 7 fell on 9/11 when it was not hit by a plane. The invitation shows that the continuing efforts of 9/11 Truth activists to bring the issue to the attention of the public are not in vain.
Slen read excerpts from the Frequently Asked Questions section of the National Institute of Standards and Technology website, which gave Gage the opportunity to explain how NIST fails to address the forensic evidence that AE911Truth’s building and technical experts have accumulated, including the symmetrical destruction of Building 7 at free-fall acceleration, the explosions reported by first responders, the evidence of thermite in the dust, and the molten iron found in the rubble of all three towers. Gage also pointed out that at least two media outlets — CNN and the BBC — reported the destruction of Building 7 before it actually occurred.
Several excellent questions were asked by Washington Journal callers, most of who made intelligent points about the subject and had supportive comments about AE911Truth.
The appearance by Gage on C-SPAN as well as recent attention given by the media to the High-Rise Safety Initiative offer real hope that the ongoing efforts of the 9/11 Truth Movement are starting to show some significant results.
Indeed, after the interview, Gage told the AE911Truth that he is “quite encouraged to finally be treated in a fair and balanced manner in a mainstream media TV interview. I also appreciate Washington Journal’s commitment to providing a forum for all voices concerning the important issues that affect our country. When it comes to the controlled demolition evidence,” he mused, “the question is, ‘How soon before other networks learn from C-SPAN’s example?’”
Lucas Alexander presents for “Age Of Truth*TV” – Dr. NIELS HARRIT ~ “9/11 & THE SEVENTH TOWER”, an in-depth interview-documentary with the Danish associate Professor of chemistry and nano-science, and a famous 9/11 truth researcher who has been giving lectures in many different countries.
What exactly happened on the infamous world-changing date, September the 11th 2001 in New York and Washington? 9/11 has become a mystery to many people who question the official story of what happened to the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Especially because of the mysterious collapse of a third building on the same day, World Trade Center Bulding 7, which was not hit by a plane.
Dr. Niels Harrit explains in details why he is certain as a scientist that the World Trade Center Building 7 could only collapse because of explosives inside the building orchestrated carefully in order to perform a controlled demolition. He also goes into great detail about why the two airliners, the planes that hit the Twin Towers, could not have caused the buildings to collapse, and why he believes it also was a controlled demolition, with the use of nano thermite to explode the two steel frame high risers.
Dr. Harrit also explain at length about all of the most crucial and important factual aspects concerning the whole 9/11 phenomenon. Everything that occurred on September the 11th 2001 step by step in New York at the World Trade Center and at the Pentagon in Washington. He also talks about Osama Bin Laden and Al Quada´s role in the horrific attacks that changed the world, and why he believes that official explanation of the 19 hijackers carrying out the attacks is impossible according to him.
Age Of Truth TV speaks from a journalistic, non-partial, open-minded, critical and in-depth point of view, and is asking questions to Dr. Harrit as a beginners guide to an alternative view of the events that took place on 9/11, and why the Truth movement is divided on this topic matter of how the attacks were carried out.
The interview took place at the University of Copenhagen on February 20, 2013.
The film premiered as a cinema-style presentation before a live audience in Copenhagen, Denmark on March 19, 2014.
