International Republican Institute: No CIA Ties (Timothy Ashby, Spain, 01/20/19 4:10 am)

With all due respect to my friend, Boris Volodarsky (January 14th), the International Republican Institute/IRI does not have ties--close or otherwise--to the CIA.

I had a contract with the IRI some years ago and know the organisation well. The IRI has been taken over by Trumpian zealots who view the CIA as a Deep State enemy.

JE comments:  Tim Ashby no longer lives in South Africa, but there's a glitch in the WAIS website and I cannot update a member's country of residence.  Perhaps The Eagles said it best:  You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave...?  (In any case, Tim, I promise to get this fixed.)

We read a lot about Trump's war with the "Deep State," but what does this really mean?  Shall we open a general discussion on the DS?

  • US Organizations and CIA Connections (Boris Volodarsky, Austria 01/20/19 3:57 PM)

    With all due respect to my friend Tim Ashby (20 January), all 80-plus-years past experience shows that any US organization with offices overseas, let along Russia, has ties with the CIA, whether it is declared or not and whether its leadership knows it or not. And this has nothing to do with a supposition or a wild or educated guess--it is a fact.

    If Tim carefully considers any example, including the CPUSA or just anything that can be realistically checked, he will see that I am right. There is nothing good or bad in it; this is how things work. The same of course is true about the SVR of Russia and SIS of the UK.

    JE comments:  All organizations?  Even if the leaders don't know it?  This cannot possibly be the case with US-based NGOs.  The big question:  what about the US Peace Corps?
