Daniel Ganser’s book on Operation Gladio: If democracy is a system of rules and procedures which define the parameters within which political action can take place, what happens when alongside this system there is another [system] whose rules are mysterious, its procedures unknown, its power immense and which is able to protect itself against the formal institutions of democracy by a wall of secrecy?
==Operation Gladio, Daniel Ganser
Without some type of protection mechanism in place, criminals will gain control of government and use its power to prey on the population. They will do as they please to those who are too weak to resist them. (They will never use the power of government to prosecute and punish themselves.)
==Tragedy and Hope 101: The Illusion of Justice, Freedom, and Democracy (Plummer, Joseph)
In questions of power…let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.
—Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions
The mere presence of SAP material on her “private” email server is a federal offense — and should be. Sometimes described as “above top secret” these programs are no-BS “need to know” and you must be read into each one individually, then you must access whatever material is involved in a secured facility from which that material may not leave. There is no such thing as “having access to them” on a general basis, no matter who you are.These programs typically deal with human intelligence of some form — an agent on the ground in a foreign nation employed in a very sensitive role and operation. Divulging the material will cause great harm to national security, usually will get people killed outright and might start a war — literally. That’s not hyperbole — it’s real and is no joke.
