In the wake of the scandals over the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups, and the Justice Department’s spying on journalists, the Paulding County Republican Examiner (PCRE) was contacted last Sunday night that the latest scandal to break is the systematic political purge at the under the direction of CIA Director, .
The news was received by the PCRE by Kent Clizbe, a former CIA counter-terrorism operations officer and author of Willing Accomplices and Obliterating Exceptionalism, of the purge of non-supporters of Obama and vicious reprisals and threats against anyone who dared to speak out against the CIA or the administration and that it began in 2009 and has escalated ever since.
While Brennan has been Obama’s CIA director since March 8, 2013, Brennan has been President Obama’s confidant since 2008.
Clizbe’s troubles with Brennan first began when he wrote about what he called the Obama/Holder Global War on the CIA, in August of 2009 in Newsmax, when Leon Panetta was the Director of the CIA. In the next two years, Clizbe wrote several more articles about the politicization of the CIA and the war on terror. The main target of his analysis was John Brennan, who at the time was Obama’s “Terrorism Czar.”
In 2010, Clizbe wrote “John Brennan – Connecting the Dots Spells Conflict of Interest” in which the CIA was not pleased, especially Brennan.
When Clizbe left the CIA a while back, he was hired back on in 2011 as a contracted consultant.
In April 2013, two weeks after Brennan arrived at the CIA, not only were some other agents purged or threatened with termination, Clizbe was purged from the CIA payroll.
The reason? The CIA purged Clizbe because he was at the forefront of criticizing Brennan through his writings, appearances, and his two books.
