The Jonestown Massacre - The CIA -- And The Murder Of Congressman Leo Ryan
Many individuals who've for one reason or another stumbled across a criminal act that was perpetrated by their own government, are often accused of being conspiracy nuts. And is it any wonder, since in quite a number of instances their claims are at least on the surface outlandish.
However, when one delves more deeply into investigating their claims, more times than not they will find that there's more than a hint of truth in what such conspiracy theorists are saying.
The reality of the situation is that in order to deal with the numerous complexities of the dark side of human nature, the covert organizations which operate within most countries (which includes their intelligence communities) are forced into a situation where they cannot win.
And while there's little doubt that many of the people in intelligence entered this specialized field with the intention of doing good work and making positive contributions to society, the elite powers of the world were quick to control these organizations, in turn forcing many of these agents to get involved in very complex and criminal operations that they'd probably never envisioned themselves taking part in.
That is not to say that there aren't others operating within the intelligence communities around the globe who are very controlling and evil people; those who do enjoy hurting others, while seeking a collective rationale for doing so. There most certainly are a great number of these men and women to be found within the global intelligentsia.
Sadly, it would appear that the majority of these intelligence communities are comprised of the latter of these two personality types, as evidenced by a myriad of horrific crimes that these federal organizations have perpetrated throughout their history.
After a time, it becomes easier for them to deny such deplorable crimes, then it is to acknowledge that the organizations which they've been supporting are truly evil institutions - a congenital mistake.
As someone who's experienced first hand, the absolute evil that the United States Military-Industrialist-Intelligence complex is capable of, I will never again be able to see my country in the way that I once did. I say this because I have learned that the United States Federal Government has used a series of perpetual untruths to mask its culpability in some of the most outrageous crimes ever documented.
America's persona as the bright and shining light of the free world is as fraudulent as the Nazi's excuse for torturing and mutilating many Jews was under the guise of medical experimentation, during the Nazi Holocaust.
In the modern day, to be a truly well educated American citizen means to eschew the veil of lies that this government has fed us since the time that we were all children.
American history books are replete with more fabrications than one can count; lies so extensive that they have completely altered the landscape of our American Constitutional Republic -- something this country long ago adhered to, but has now lost due to the most egregious subversion of our once healthy government.
Still worse, is that your average American does not even realize that their country was created as such a government. Ask another family member, friend or even neighbor what type of government they think we have in the United States, and they will quickly answer back -- a democracy of course!
However that was not what America was created to be. And the truth is that a democracy is a terrible form of government where the majority rules the minority. However, since the criminal PNAC/Bush 43 Administration stole their way into this country's highest positions of government as the result of ballot stuffing, we are now living in a Zionist financed military-intelligence dictatorship; courtesy of the House of Rothschild and its international Jewish counterfeiting/money laundering cartel.
It is the House of Rothschild which has secretly controlled the U.S. Federal Government since 1913, when the treasonous Federal Reserve Act was passed into legislation, and the private corporation known as the Federal Reserve System was created in which to both loot the United States Treasury of the American people's gold bullion, as well as to counterfeit and launder the Rothschild's fiat currency through the U.S. economy. A situation in which the U.S. Congress was tricked into giving up its Constitutional power to coin and regulate the value of American currency, while the Rothschilds used their new found authority in the United States to overthrow the U.S. Federal Government, while using the Federal Reserve central bank in which to furtively destroy the U.S. economy.
On November 18, 1978 the world awoke to the horrors of the Jonestown massacre and one of the greatest deceptions in human history. The American media was reporting that the Reverend Jim Jones had forced roughly 900 (American) members of his cult to commit suicide, and shown the absolute carnage that ensued after he had given them cyanide laced cups of Kool-Aid to consume.
As a child, Jones, whose father was active within the Ku Klux Klan, was exposed to the darker side of human nature. And this would turn out to have a very significant and tragic affect on him as well as many of his followers.
To anyone who's familiar with the Central Intelligence Agency's MKULTRA mind control research, the Jonestown massacre is simply so typical of the CIA's covert operations, that it quite literally demands to be independently investigated.
And over the years that's exactly what has happened.
While there have been a great number of issues independently investigated regarding the Jonestown mass murders -- issues which the mainstream U.S. media was either never told about, or conveniently chose to omit from their coverage of this tragic story - there is one issue regarding the Jonestown massacre which so typifies the CIA's chronic paranoia and need to murder those whom the agency deems to be powerful enough to expose some aspect of its criminal operations, that it literally cries out to be exposed.
In 1974 out of frustration at Congresses inability to properly oversee the U.S. Intelligence community, two then Democratic members of Congress, Harold E. Hughes and Leo Ryan, drafted the Hughes-Ryan Act as an amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961.
The Hughes-Ryan Act required that the President of the United States report any covert Intelligence operations to a Congressional oversight committee within a specified period of time. Hughes also saw this Act as a means of limiting the covert operations being carried out by U.S. Military Intelligence and NSA agents who might be operating without having the President's full knowledge or approval of what they were doing.
Hughes would retire from Congress in 1974. However, his co-sponsor of the Hughes-Ryan Act would stay in office for several more years and strangely enough become the first member of Congress to be murdered while in the line of duty, when he was gunned down In Jonestown, Guyana by members of the "People's Temple Cult," after attempting to negotiate the release of more than 900 hostages.
Suspiciously enough, the Hughes-Ryan Act would be replaced shortly after his death, with the 1980 Intelligence Oversight Act. It was the latter, which would amend the Hughes-Ryan Act that required United States government agencies to report covert actions to as many as eight oversight committees, and ultimately only authorize two committees (The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence) to oversee these agencies.
While Hughes retired from Congress in 1974, Ryan was still active and would most certainly have fought any attempts to amend the Hughes-Ryan Act, since the 1980 Intelligence Oversight Act would undermine what he and Senator Hughes had drafted in the original amendment.
There's no question that the U.S. Intelligence community, and in particular the CIA, were threatened by both Hughes and Ryan. Moreover, this agency would certainly need to remove them if it were to reduce the level of oversight that carefully monitored the CIA's covert drug trafficking operations, and myriad other crimes that this agency continues to be notorious for in the present day. With Hughes' retirement from Congress, he no longer posed a threat to the CIA.
However, Ryan was still an active member of Congress at the time of his death, and most certainly would not have stood idly by while the Hughes-Ryan Act was passed over by the later and less effective Intelligence Oversight Act, which would only serve to undermine the work of both Hughes and Ryan.
Given these facts, the following question should be asked:
In understanding the CIA's covert involvement in the Jonestown massacre, and its concern that Congressman Leo Ryan was poking around in the agency's backyard, was the CIA also responsible for the covert murder of Congressman Ryan?
In this author's opinion, the circumstantial evidence surrounding the murder of Leo Ryan overwhelmingly suggests, that Ryan was in fact murdered by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency to end his attempts to investigate the CIA and other intelligence agencies.
