I think that there is more to this conflict between the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee and the CIA than merely a show of hypocrisy by Feinstein as many in liberal and left media are seeing it. (Diane Feinstein last summer remarked that "what he [Snowden] did was an act of treason"). As a Senate liberal, Feinstein has supported nearly all Empire aggressions. The fact that she has gone public with this conflict with the CIA indicates to me that even liberals are becoming concerned with the level of the arrogance displayed by members of the shadow government. Notice also that the CIA director went before one of the most powerful behind-the-scenes ruling class organizations to issue what many regard as a thinly veiled threat:
"I would just encourage members of the Senate to take their time to make sure that they don’t overstate what they claim and what they probably believe to be the truth. These are some complicated matters.”I have no doubt that the conflict will be quietly handled in favor of an aggressive shadow government and its secret agencies, and aided by their media executives who will make sure that their talking heads on TV handle the issue appropriately so that the public goes back to sleep. I see this incident as one more indication that our ruling class is intent on moving further toward fascist rule.
