If it were not for the many consspiracists who disrupt the left with their
nonsense about 9/11 and JFJ this kind of disinformation by the CIA would not
work. The CIA is the enemy; they do what they do. But friends who play into
the hands of the CIA are something different. I've always read maggie's
posts with interests, but if this post means what it seems to mean -- i.e.,
a defense of conspiricism on 9/11 & JFK I'm afraid I will have to add her
name to my kill file.
I've always read

Subject: Facebook DELETED my posts re. 9/11 films; CIA weaponizing a term
I just discovered that Facebook has deleted at least one of my posts, and
possibly more. The one I was looking for (I happened to be looking for the
link again) and realized it's gone was about the 9/11 film festival "50
Years of Betrayal - From JFK to Today" (see email below, entire festival can
be viewed for free now, or for $5 with better presentation). FB is
definitely doing CIA's bidding at hushing up "conspiracy theories".
It turns out, according to a CIA directive released as a result of a 1976
FOIA request, that labeling views that cast doubt on official stories as
"conspiracy theories" to discredit them has been an active strategy of the
CIA since the time of the Warren Commission report on JFK assassination,
when CIA instructed all its operatives, particularly its assets in the media
and in the political apparatus to do the perception management for their
purpose of defending the official story:
(The actual CIA directive, complete with attached propaganda material, can

This is done despite the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smith-Mundt_Act> , which "forbids the domestic
dissemination of U.S. Government authored or developed propaganda...
deliberately designed to influence public opinion or policy".
Though illegal under that act, CIA's Operation Mockingbird was all about
completely infiltrating the media and public think tanks in order to
deliberately influence public opinion or policy.
