In light of President Obama’s drone assassination program with countless collateral civilian deaths as well as worldwide blowback terrorist attacks, such as recently in Iraq, with thousands of senseless civilian deaths ~ perhaps it’s time, voiced by many Americans this Independence day, for America to take the lead, stop its War of Terror and begin to listen to our enemies, as former undercover CIA Officer Amaryllis Fox so eloquently recommends: Allen L Roland, PhD

 

” An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”   ~ Mahatma Gandhi

 

Gandhi’s words resonate with me and many others ~ but I will listen to this new messenger for it has been essentially my message for the past 15 years and it takes great courage to deliver it. It absolutely makes no one safer to make our cities and the world a battlefield ~ with no apparent victors.

In the wake of yet another terrorist attack in Iraq and Bangladesh, as well as numerous acts of domestic terror, a former CIA counterterrorism agent Amaryllis Fox has shared her insight into what causes such tragic, intentional carnage ~ and she is worth listening to despite the skepticism of some of my colleagues. It represents the high road and the only way out of our current low road eye for an eye abyss.

Amaryllis Fox spoke for the first time publicly with Al Jazeera Plus (AJ+) about terrorism, misguided narratives on why it happens, and the underlying motivators driving it ~ ultimately urging Americans and those in power to adopt a different approach in combating the ongoing violence.

If I learned one lesson from my time with the CIA, it is this: everybody believes they are the good guy,” says Fox, who is currently “in the process of getting her CIA cover rolled back,” AJ+ reports. She is now a peace activist and runs Mulu, “an e-commerce company supporting at-risk communities around the world.”

Fox worked as a counterterrorism and intelligence CIA official for the clandestine services during the 2000s. In her first public statement on her time there, she discussed the limitations on the American public’s perception of the war on terror ~ See 4 minute video

In summary ~ this former CIA officer’s secret life evidently taught her one important lesson: Listen to your enemy ~ but I would also ominously add ~ quite often God may be sending a message.
