CIA Counterterror Chief Suggests Going To War Against ‘Domestic Insurgents’

Compares dissenting Americans to Taliban, Al Qaeda; Compares President Trump to Saddam Hussein.

The former head of the CIA Counterterrorism Center has suggested that counterinsurgency tactics used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan should be applied to ‘domestic extremists’ inside the US.

NPR reports that Robert Grenier, who directed the CIA’s Counterterrorism program from 2004 to 2006, declared “We may be witnessing the dawn of a sustained wave of violent insurgency within our own country, perpetrated by our own countrymen.”

In an op-ed for The New York Times last week, Grenier suggested that “extremists who seek a social apocalypse … are capable of producing endemic political violence of a sort not seen in this country since Reconstruction.”

Grenier, also a former CIA station chief in Pakistan and Afghanistan, grouped together “the Proud Boys, the Three Percenters, the Oath Keepers, ‘Christian’ national chauvinists, white supremacists and QAnon fantasists” and claimed they are all “committed to violent extremism.”

Grenier labeled dissenters an “insurgency” and called for them to be “defeated” like an enemy army.

In further comments to NPR, Grenier stated that “as in any insurgency situation, you have committed insurgents who are typically a relatively small proportion of the affected population. But what enables them to carry forward their program is a large number of people from whom they can draw tacit support.”

Grenier also stated that insurgents may emerge from groups who “believe that the election was stolen,” or those “who don’t trust NPR or The New York Times.”

“The most violent elements that we are concerned about right now see former President Trump as a broadly popular and charismatic symbol,” the CIA spook added, before comparing Trump to Saddam Hussein.

“You know, just as I saw in the Middle East that the air went out of violent demonstrations when [Iraqi leader] Saddam Hussein was defeated and seen to be defeated, I think the same situation applies here,” he proclaimed.

Grenier suggested that Trump should be convicted at the upcoming impeachment trial as a ‘national security imperative’ because “So long as he is there and leading the resistance, if you will, which he shows every sign of intending to do, he is going to be an inspiration to very violent people.”

Grenier then compared Americans to Al Qaeda and the Taliban, noting that in Afghanistan “the thrust of our campaign there was, yes, to hunt down al-Qaida, but primarily to remove the supportive environment in which they were able to live and to flourish. And that meant fighting the Taliban.”

“I think that is the heart of what we need to deal with here,” he added.

The CIA is a terrorist organization

They're drawing a line that even Stevie Wonder can see.

I seem to recall that including MOABs.

There seems to be a secession movement afoot in Texas, and the above kind of crap is what will push it mainstream.

If it starts to take root in Texas, you can bet other southern states will start their own joint secession initiatives. It's hard to imagine such a movement could be anything more than a strong political statement to DC, but by golly, if the DC establishment as a whole starts talking like the kook above is, then that would make the betting odds a bit more even.

First... the CIA is not supposed to be running operations on American Soil. Second... there is no domestic terror threat currently greater than Antifa and BLM.

They know it, they sponsor these groups and they run ops with their own guys to catch a so called terrorist that has been pushed or somehow empowered to do something stupid.

If you really want to know how to catch a domestic terrorist, stake out your local FBI branch and see who goes in and out wearing plain clothes. I guarantee you, those are your "terrorists".

CIA and every other intel agency in the world work for the international banking pedophile sacks of shit that worship satan and have the nerve to sit right next to you in your 501 (C)(3) fucking fake churches and PREY for you and more importantly your children.

I am so sick and tired of the FAUX NEWS Geniuses that haven't got a fucking clue as to what's been happening their entire life. Shame on all of the pension prostitutes and parasites clinging to a job that requires them to sell out their friends and their own souls out of fear and insecurity, never TRUSTING GOD instead trusting the same men, the same system that is destroying everything good.

Too busy chasing the wrong "profits" and gorging themselves on bread and circuses, while being led to accept every deviant trend introduced by the likes of Miley (the disgusting tramp) Cyrus, placing their tots upon the laps of convicted child molesters in drag for story time, and allowing the school teachers permission to teach that 100 genders exist, and add to that the dementia addled cocksucker proclaimed President by every Jew run media outlet is ordering by fiat that weirdo kids with dicks imagining they're girls will legally compete against real girls in sports !

Secession is definitely a worthy consideration - and don't forget to bring your guns !

All I can say is "Fuck you, Robert Grenier," for your subserviance to satanic forces that are the real insurrectionists in America.

Every county that Trump won should be declared a Conservative American sanctuary county !

Excellent blast across their bow to start this Friday, thank you! It was a pure joy to read.

Thanks, when every day comes complete with another obnoxious invasion of normalcy and decency it's time to decide what must be done about it.

I ain't no saint or puritan but I have had my fill of this perpetual "horseshit" being force fed to Americans by this cabal of sick and twisted psychopathic leadership imposters.

These forces of luciferian scum are itching for a fight that they can't win. Americans have been saddled with the debt accumulated over the years to support agendas and activities most Americans would reject. The tolerance shown by conservatives making every attempt to get along with perverts of every sort that are never satisfied has brought us to the precipice of civil war ...

Good heavens..I can read that you are in fine fettle and fighting mood this morning.

Of all people, Donald Trump has found the depth and width of the Washington swamp to be greater than he ever imagined.

Will Trump gut the so called republican party or will he go third rail???

If Trump does nothing, WE ARE DOWN THE DRAIN. Force McCarthy and McConnel to walk the plank and be rid of the spineless bastards.

I agree, and think there will be a spark that ignites a shit storm like we've never seen. Our culture has banned anger, honest dialogue, and instilled short sighted sugar coating of so much bullshit in a failed attempt raise the standards of one class of welfare sucking bums and bring down the class working harder and harder trying to pay the bills accumulated by the non-producing parasites in the political class.

D.C. has had their chance to succeed ... they did not !
