order to comprehend the ostensibly bizarre Wikileaks phenomena
that is continually in the news these days, it is essential to first
comprehend the concept of the 'Mighty Wurlitzer'.
used to be the honorific of Frank Wisner,
the first chief of political warfare for the Central Intelligence
Agency, used to describe the C.I.A.’s
plethora of front organizations and newsmedia stooges that he was
capable of playing (like a great organ with many keyboards) for
synthesizing any propaganda tune that was needed for the day. More
details may be gleaned in the disclosures of Operation
fact that such an omnipresent Message-Machine is not ancient history
but very much current affairs, is underscored by this NYT headline
“Behind TV Analysts, Pentagon’s Hidden Hand”,
today, I use the term 'Mighty Wurlitzer' as a metaphor to
pluralistically refer to the same message-machine, i.e., the
intelligence apparatus for manufacturing consent and controlling
dissent, and its concomitant conscious manipulation of peoples'
thoughts, feelings, actions and in-actions, in order to serve the
primacy interests of the ruling-elite. The latter are, invariably,
also the de facto owners of the complete messaging-system now even
more globally ubiquitous than when Frank Wisner
played the world for a fool.
'grand organ' is now able to even more effectively synthesize,
implant, and reinforce, all the right set of beliefs (myths) among
the entire world's public – by suitably combining 'events' with
imaginative 'expos' writing – which appropriately primes the
world populations to acquiesce to the oligarchic agendas. While
playing this orchestra is now an integral part of all state-craft,
its major musical themes are entirely determined by the behind the
scenes owners of the system. While some might refer to the underlying
techniques as propaganda and psy-ops,
'Mighty Wurlitzer' singularly
captures the messaging-system controlled under a unified purpose of
command which is both highly compartmentalized and cellularized.
Only the Mighty Wurlitzer knows the entire tune.
this means is that not all who willingly cooperate with the Mighty
Wurlitzer in synchronistically humming its themes are knowingly being
purveyors of its myths and deception. Many of its most shrill echoers
are often well intentioned functionaries who are fed different
motivating myths at different levels in the hierarchy –
sometimes the lie is different at every level – such that it
suitably motivates each according to their own predilection,
professional station, and mission statement.
Mighty Wurlitzer operates on the core premise which has been
empirically shown to psychologically motivate most human action. That
premise was elegantly captured in the following insightful
observation made at the so called “Terrorism
that “'Public Assumptions'
Shape Views of History: Such presumptions are beliefs (1) thought to
be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty),
and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community. The
sources for such presumptions are both personal (from direct
experience) and vicarious (from books, movies, and myths).”
Successfully implanting such
presumptions and pre-suppositions among any group is to motivate its
overall actions in accordance with those implanted beliefs. Thus,
many intelligent peoples for whom it is otherwise inexplicable to
understand why they persist in 'United We Stand' with absurdities,
are motivated to react sympathetically to those absurdities.
barely catch a glimpse of how it's partially done, the following
description by Col. Fletcher Prouty from
the Preface to the first edition of his 1973 book “The
is instructive (PDF
is another category of writer and self-proclaimed authority on the
subjects of secrecy, intelligence, and containment. This man is the
suave, professional parasite who gains a reputation as a real
reporter by disseminating the scraps and "Golden Apples"
thrown to him by the great men who use him. This writer seldom knows
and rarely cares that many of the scraps from which he draws his
material have been planted, that they are controlled leaks, and that
he is being used, and glorified as he is being used, by the inside
secret intelligence community.
Dulles had a penchant for cultivating a
number of such writers with big names and inviting them to his table
for a medieval style luncheon in that great room across the hall from
his own offices in the old CIA headquarters on the hill overlooking
Foggy Bottom. Here, he would discuss openly and all too freely the
same subjects that only hours before had been carefully discussed in
the secret inner chambers of the operational side of that quiet
Agency. In the hands of Allen Dulles, "secrecy" was simply
a chameleon device to be used as he saw fit and to be applied to
lesser men according to his schemes. It is quite fantastic to find
people like Daniel Ellsberg being charged with leaking official
secrets simply because the label on the piece of paper said "top
secret," when the substance of many of the words written on
those same papers was patently untrue and no more than a cover story.
Except for the fact that they were official lies, these papers had no
basis in fact, and therefore no basis to be graded top secret or any
other degree of classification. Allen Dulles would tell similar cover
stories to his coterie of writers, and not long thereafter they would
appear in print in some of the most prestigious papers and magazines
in the country, totally unclassified, and of course, cleverly untrue.
every case, the chance for complete information is very small, and
the hope that in time researchers, students, and historians will be
able to ferret out truth from untruth, real from unreal, and story
from cover story is at best a very slim one. Certainly, history
teaches us that one truth will add to and enhance another; but let us
not forget that one lie added to another lie will demolish
everything. This is the important point. Consider the past half
century. How many major events -- really major events -- have there
been that simply do not ring true? How many times has the entire
world been shaken by alarms of major significance, only to find that
the events either did not happen at all, or if they did, that they
had happened in a manner quite unlike the original story?'
implicit in Col. Prouty's afore-quoted
empirical statement: “and
the hope that in time researchers, students, and historians will be
able to ferret out truth from untruth, real from unreal, and story
from cover story is at best a very slim one”, is the
Machiavellian notion of sewing faits accomplis in current affairs by
straight-jacketing all public discourse in
deception, and leaving the ferreting out of 'truth' to future
generation of scholars and historians when separating myths from the
calculus of hegemony can at best only be a bogus academic exercise
entirely irrelevant to reversing the faits accomplis already sewn.

above, is the Wikileaks' July 2010 disclosures of 'The Afghanistan
Papers' which revealed nothing new.
has always been a rather transparent Mighty Wurlitzer ops. It is
trivial to see through the absurdity of its existence despite it
promoting itself as being a sort of watchdog upon the empire, and
therefore, ostensibly, being inimical to its unbridled quest for
“full spectrum dominance” – just like Al
Jazeera television based in Qatar, which too, absurdly enough, is
permitted to function unhindered in the same nation as America's
CENTCOM headquarters. Would it not be trivial for an armed to the
teeth National Security State to take-out either apparatus rather
trivially? And that may happen once the useful idiots have outlived
their utility, for he who sups with the devil must have a long
reason each is allowed to function is of course social engineering,
the sine qua non for waging modern warfare upon civilian populations
by way of deception. It spans the entire gamut of engineering
consent, from mantra creation in the mainstream
and diabolically controlling dissent in order to control all
opposition, to actually fabricating the visible pretexts which can
naturally ripen the conditions for the mantra of “clash of
civilizations” to be
called real before the Western public in order to sustain the
otherwise untenable “imperial mobilization”.
Zbigniew Brzezinski had most succinctly
summed up this motivation in his book The Grand Chessboard
– American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives:
“Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization”.
can one tell manufactured reportage and fabricated leaks from the
real stuff? How can one see through the Mighty Wurlitzer?
daunting as it might appear to the mainstream television watcher, it
is in fact rather straightforward for those unencumbered by blind
faith in governments and its statecraft. Just look for the core-lies
and unquestioned axioms of empire that are typically retained in the
“leaks” and reportage which, in order to sound credible,
often openly expose what is mostly already known anyway or
judiciously employ some variation of “Limited
wrapped in a veneer of dissent, 'freedom of the press', and often
accompanied by the facade of angst and opposition from the state.
look for some of the lauded dissent names rushing to support the
Limited Hangout – just as it was with Daniel Ellsberg for his
infamous Pentagon Papers – to afford a veneer of
legitimacy to the whistleblowing revelations of supposed
state-secrets having caused some great harm to the state. The
extravagance enacted in the mainstream media, alternately
making heroes of the whistleblowers and demonizing them, is a
giveaway to the circus show being enacted for plebeian consumption.
For, it matters not which side one takes, both are lies, right out of
the text book of the Technique
: invent two lies and keep the public busy
debating which of them is true!
as empirically evidenced in the forensic analysis presented here,
these so called whistleblowing of leaky buckets only succeed
in accomplishing two important elements of statecraft:
vicariously reinvigorate in the short-term public memory, the already
established-by-fiat facts and core-axioms of empire;
establish new convenient facts on the ground which are subsequently
accepted as revealed gospel truths because of the already established
thought-stream by the scholars of empire that when something is held
in secret or is classified and subsequently declassified, or is
prematurely leaked to the public, that it must contain some genuine
“state secrets”, and never red herrings. Such
thought-streams enable the directives of NSC 10/2 for plausible
deniability (and those like it which we do not know about) to be
trivially impressed upon the public mind (see Anatomy
of Conspiracy Theory).
These revelations of presumed
become the new unquestioned backdrops, the new “doctrinal
motivations”, with copious help from the Mighty Wurlitzer's
refined machinery in the global media and
in the world of scholarship and academe, for the successful
mobilization of pre-planned policy
prescriptions which impel the various incantations of hegemony
forward in baby-steps. Both, domestically by incrementally clamping
down hard on rising dissent in the name of “national security”,
and internationally by continuing to wage unpopular wars of
preemption upon the 'untermenschen' because the infernal enemy has
now been confirmed to exist since even empire's own henchmen in their
secret documents also betray that belief!
Brzezinski in his book the Grand
Chessboard, un-abashedly explained the
need for such invigorations of the public
mind in the following majestic words, betraying his immense knowledge
of Machiavellian statecraft's reliance on
opinion polls suggest that only a small minority (13 percent) of
Americans favor the proposition that 'as the sole remaining
superpower, the US should continue to be the preeminent world leader
in solving international problems'. ... Moreover, as America becomes
an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult
to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the
circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external
threat. .... More generally, cultural change in America may also be
uncongenial to the sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial
power. That exercise requires a high degree of doctrinal
motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification.”
(page 211 and onwards)
with rising skepticism among the public, more “harmful leaks”
will occur, but understandably none which are actually substantial,
like blowing the lid on 9/11 as an inside job, directly naming
the top beneficiaries who shorted the Airline stocks raking in
billions, or revealing how BBC came to report the demolition of WTC-7
a full 20 minutes before it actually transpired, never mind lending
confirmation to any of the forensic detective work by independent
researchers from the debris of 9/11, etceteras.
And the main leaker du jour, Mr. patsy Julian Assange,
like Mr. patsy Lee Harvey Oswald before him, will be sacrificed,
perhaps with a new 'lone gunmen' enactment, or perhaps juridically,
to lend the hoopla even more public respectability. Also see

Response to Philip Giraldi.
the exact same recipe as is used by all the other fabricated and
controlled dissent assets of empire when they are not outright
spinning patent lies, for spinning half-truths requires far more
brilliance. One can already see the main dissent-chiefs of the West,
like the venerable professor Noam Chomsky, anointed by the New York
Times as “arguably the most important intellectual alive”,
and the distinguished Daniel Ellsberg, excitedly supporting these
Wikileaks exposés as if something
ethereal was revealed in the Sinai!

believe has been accomplished by Wikileaks. Also see the January 2011

Wikileaks revelations, in “Wikileaks

core-lies retained in the Wikileaks' July 2010 disclosures –
which I call 'the Afghanistan Papers' – is to once again
reaffirm that there is a real nemesis called “Osama Bin Laden”,
that the “war on terror” is real, that it is being
inflicted upon the West from Pakistan-Iran nexus, and to
re-substantiate the handoff of former President George W. Bush's
clairvoyance to the Obama Administration that “If another
September 11 style attack is being planned, it probably is being
plotted in Pakistan, and not Afghanistan”! That, when such
a “planned” attack transpires, it “will
make Sept. 11 pale by comparison”. See: ‘Bin
Laden’: Key enabler of “imperial mobilization” and
nuclear attack on Iran-Pakistan.
successful handoff of “imperial mobilization” to
Pakistan and Iran, now further sprightly underscored by Wikileaks'
documents, is once again demonstrated by President Obama's Secretary
of State Hilary Clinton's July 2010 remark to the BBC
as quoted by Reuters:
“There are still additional steps that we are asking and
expecting the Pakistanis to take. But there is no doubt in anyone's
mind that should an attack against the United States be traced to be
Pakistani, it would (have) a very devastating impact on our
relationship”. And that is merely just another echo from
the Obama Administration of what the Pakistanis themselves have been
made to parrot the past 9 years, as demonstrated by its own
Wednesday, a media report quoted Pakistan’s envoy to Washington
as saying that US leaders had warned Islamabad that if the United
States suffered an attack that was traced back to Pakistan Washington
would retaliate. “Those (statements) have been made,”

Washington Post. “We want to make sure that it doesn’t
come to that.”' -- DAWN,

would attack Osama bin Laden the moment it had reliable intelligence
on the Al Qaeda leader's whereabouts, Ambassador Husain Haqqani said
on Wednesday. Haqqani also said he was confident Pakistan could help
foil any Al Qaeda plans to attack the United States, although he did
not know of any right now. “A cooperative effort between all
the allies, and that includes Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United
States and NATO – I think we can thwart any potential plans for
an attack,” Haqqani said in an interview with Reuters. He
said Pakistani intelligence had helped defeat many of the “several
dozen” Al Qaeda plots detected worldwide since the September
11, 2001, attacks, but government officials knew of no immediate
threats to the United States. Haqqani said Pakistan would act on its
own against Al Qaeda if necessary. “If Pakistan, Afghanistan
or the United States had specific intelligence on the location of
Osama bin Laden, they would have acted on it. No reservations would
have come in the way of action on that, and none will even in the
future,” he said. “If any of us had that actionable
intelligence we would all act. We would act separately, we would act
in tandem, we would act cooperatively – we would act.”'

could these self-serving 'Afghanistan Papers' have been any more
convenient as a casus belli, carrying forth the same core-lies now
entering its tenth year? If Wikileaks' dramatization grabbing all the
world's headlines isn't an officially sponsored “modified
limited hangout” for exactly that purpose of reinforcing
the core-lies, then the White House not even bothering to stop the
New York Times – whose own motto is 'All the news that's fit to

is the real import of the craftsmanship of the Mighty Wurlitzer! To
engineer a fait accompli by manufacturing consent among the gullible
masses and dissent among the rabble rousers, leaving future scholars,
historians, and the odd malcontent to laudingly
study the ashes left behind by “history's actors”.
A diabolical modus operandi of democratic statecraft which the Mighty
Wurlitzer's operators even brazenly brag about:
an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while
you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act
again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and
that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and
you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”'

anxiousness about 'are we alone in the universe', and which is
designed to become part of “imperial mobilization”

references to UFOs even made it into one of Wikileaks whistleblowing
disclosures indicate that its unveiling time is likely approaching
near. See Part1 Wikileaks

effectively they are all the same because they all end up serving
