The Treason Machine, How Israel and Turkey Nearly Burned Down the World in 2013

Syria President Bashar al-Assad

By “Frank Konkel”

In August 2013, a chemical weapons attack in Syria’s capital, Damascus, killed some 1,500 civilians and left two sides – the Syrian government and the rebels opposing President Bashar al-Assad’s regime – blaming each other for the destruction.

Within just nine days, that confusion ended when the White House released an intelligence assessment unequivocally linking the Syrian government to the attack, highlighting communications and other intercepts by U.S. spy agencies used to make the assessment.

Two weeks later, the United Nations reached the same conclusion in its own report. How was the intelligence community able to reach such a rapid, accurate analysis of such an attack on foreign soil?

The answer, according to Beth Flanagan of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, is integrated intelligence, or the increased ability for the 17 intelligence agencies to develop and share data and work on problems using the same platforms and environments.

Driven by the Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise — or ICITE (pronounced “eyesight”) — the IC has been shoring up the same kinds of intelligence gaps that preceded the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

At its core, ICITE is all about moving IC agencies toward shared services, such as cloud computing and a common desktop environment.

Speaking Tuesday at an event hosted by Defense One and the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, Flanagan, NGA’s ICITE mission lead, explained how ICITE allowed intelligence analysts from several IC agencies to rapidly “put the puzzle pieces together.”

“That’s the power of integrated intelligence,” Flanagan said. “The power of ICITE, of integrated intelligence, is reducing the time our analysts hunt and peck for data. It makes it easier for them to interrogate data and serve up conclusions to policy makers.”

Flanagan, a geospatial intelligence analyst by trade, said analysts usually spend “most of our time looking for the needle in the haystack.”

Through common services, platforms and collaborative tools ushers in by ICITE, analysts spend less time searching through data repositories and more time actually analyzing information, drawing up conclusions that senior policymakers and senior warfighters can use.

“We’re actually making the data and using the power of big data analytics, so the data will actually help find itself,” Flanagan said. “We’ve put in place the principles where it’s easier to serve up myriad of conclusions and make it less complex without taking humans out of the loop. (ICITE) makes it easier for them to interrogate data and serve up conclusions to policymakers.”

Flanagan’s example, she noted, dates back to 2013, just two years into the rollout of ICITE. She wouldn’t speculate how rapidly the IC could tackle an event similar to the Syrian chemical strikes today, but she said ICITE’s continued development bodes well for more effective intelligence integration in the future.

“The power of what we’re moving toward in the future, where data is an IC asset, we’re sharing data and using big data analytics, we’ll be able to reduce chaos and take advantage of things like the common desktop environment and common tools and platforms,” Flanagan said. “It’ll be easier for the workforce to do those things.”

  1. “treason machine” = mass murderers by proxy of military mercenaries deliberately misnamed as being “rebels”. mass media is guilty of aiding these murderers, continually lying when the truth HAS already been exposed. may they ALL enjoy a happy rope swing for what they have done and continue doing.

  2. The article thoroughly reveals the most recent application by ICITE, no doubt of what began as PROMIS software. Rafi Eitan, of Judaism´s MOSSAD, formed a team of programmers to redo PROMIS, approx. 25 years ago. “They decomposed the PROMIS disc and rearranged its various components, then added several elements of their own.” “By 1989, over $500 million worth of Promis programs had been sold to Britain, Australia, South Korea and Canada.” This amount does not include the CIA version of PROMIS sold to various intelligence agencies. The MOSSAD version of PROMIS would hack into intelligence computers without being discerned, and could be used by non-computerized agents who could tap keys on a keyboard. Details in “Gideon´s Spies The Secret History of the MOSSAD,” by Gordon Thomas, updated 2009, pps 202-204.

  3. What a great article. And it’s another blockbuster disclosure of the KM entities that are trying to start a full scale ICBM based WW3 between America and Russia. Putin and Russian Federation air power has now stopped the KM and their ISIS mercenary armies of mind-kontrolled soulless nutcases cold. So then Soros, another KM Kingpin with an endless supply of KM “funny money”, pays to ship all the displaced refugees to Europe to create chaos and breakdown as revenge and to further the KM Globalist NWO Agenda. What would the KM do if all heir top crime lords and kingpins (not that many either) were rounded up, arrested and placed in black prison camps like they set up at USG expense to be later tried for all their crimes against humanity? The KM would collapse overnight and they would scream and kick like the little cowards they are when their protection is withdrawn.

    • They will try it until we imprison or hang them, They are like a hydra with multiple heads and we have to kill the heart of the beast to kill the whole thing.
      Thanks to Gordon and you, Mr. James, we are very well informed now and can see the beast clearly. But we cannot always see those who are infected by this virus. Only time will tell.

    • I think the basic mindset HAS to be one of decentralisation there is a strong truth vibration going around but yes I agree people seem a little unsure of the next step. For me it has to be all out offence on decntalisation. Leave the details of possible arrests and trials to those who are ITK am very hopeful that there is bomb proof evidence that can really end up making good use of those ghastly FEMA camps.

      But yeah, be really helpful if something really significant and groundbreaking made it into the MSM, that would be a real game changer. But there is so much justice that needs to be done that it is difficult to know where to start. Of course at the same time awareness needs to be ramped up to avoid a tragic escalation much like what Mr Duff has reported on here, but a great article, all written very professionally.

  4. Absolutely spot on, it is sad that many, many more are not aware of the tireless efforts made by the likes of Gordon Duff and his team at VT though one can only hope that corporations and the media whores have an Epiphany and pretty damn soon to call times tense would be a serious understatement.
