The American Empire requires many nasty people to do its dirty work. Many of them end up in the public/private circle jerk that one U.S President called “The Military-Industrial Complex.”
Fred Burton is one such person.
Burton is a former Deputy Chief of the Department of State’s counterterrorism division for the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS). Now he is Vice President for Counterterrorism and Corporate Security at STRATFOR.
Burton has some fun thoughts on Julian Assange and gives us all a reminder that people who work in the War and Intelligence industry tend to be sociopaths, from Wikileaks:
“Take down the money. Go after his infrastructure. The tools we are using to nail and de-construct Wiki are the same tools used to dismantle and track aQ [Al Qaeda]. Thank Cheney & 43 [former US President George W. Bush]. Big Brother owns his liberal terrorist arse.”
Yep. Terrorism is anything against the interests of the 1% and their empire. Got it.
“Bankrupt the arsehole first, ruin his life. Give him 7-12 yrs for conspiracy.”
Ruin his life. What a nice gentlemen I am so glad he is briefing American officials.
“Assange is going to make a nice bride in prison. Screw the terrorist. He’ll be eating cat food forever.”
… wow. Where does one begin to deconstruct such a horrifying sentiment so gleefully said. Psycho.
This is the mentality of the police state – anyone and everyone who threatens the interests of the 1% must be destroyed. And guess what? That’s probably you if you don’t want to be a slave to Wall Street.
Enjoy your cat food everyone.
