Default WaPo's Woodward: Government A 'Rat's Nest Of Concealment And Lies'

Quote:
Famed Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward said Sunday a “secret government” and a “rat’s nest of concealment and lies” are responsible for Team Obama scandals and miscues – including the ObamaCare website fiasco.

Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday, Woodward said:

“They need to review this secret world and its power in their government because you run into this rat’s nest of concealment and lies time and time again then and now. You get to a point where it’s what do you worry about? Secret governments.”

As it relates to ObamaCare, Woodward said:

“We were talking earlier about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. That was run by Leon Panetta, who was CIA director, who knew to make sure you checked all of the boxes, and they literally had a place…a compound that they reconstructed and…they practiced. And we didn’t even practice ObamaCare.”

Incidentally, Woodward knows a thing or two about scandals, “concealment and lies” and “secret governments.” Along with then-colleague Carl Bernstein, he famously worked, in concert with a high-level FBI informant then known as “Deep Throat,” to uncover the Watergate scandal.

The media is responsible for allowing this den of thieves to exist. Even Bob Woodward hasn't done the investigative journalism he is so famed for. The media has ignored the scandals and have gone so far as to agree with obama when he says the scandals are phoney. The progressives have the MSM in their hip pocket and the only time you will see the claws come out is if/when a republican is elected to the presidency.

Bob Woodward: NSA Scandal Caused by 'Secret Government'

Quote:
"They need to review this secret world and its power in their government because you run into this rat's nest of concealment and lies time and time again, then and now," Woodward said.

Because the United States was so intent on stopping terrorism, he said, intelligence agencies have acquired too much power and run amok.

"What's interesting here is the technology that gives us the information about the terrorists is very similar, essentially, to the technology that allows us to get conversations of world leaders on cellphones. And ... somebody's got to look at this and see where it's going,"

There has been a "secret government" since at least 1963. Kennedy was going to dismantle the CIA.

and stop the Vietnam build up

Why do people think that the so-called "secret government" would be in the C.I.A.? As Nancy Pelosi and some of her fellow figureheads explained, they're allowing their staffers to write bills that the congressmen never read, and don't understand. It seems to me that we need look no farther that the career bureaucrats to find your secret government, hidden in plain sight.

if you listen to the video at the newsmax site he was talking about Kennedy just before the cherry picked statements in the op. the cia isn't "the" secret government no but there certainly is something going on and has been for a very long time in my opinion.

The problem being that is has intensified tremendously under Obama. He is willing to lie about anything to achieve his goals and that has been proven time and time again. People are finally starting to realize this including MSM. If they turn on him and start reporting honestly, he will be exposed for the charlatan he is.
