A paragraph from an irresponsible rant on the murder of a Saudi journalist.


It is quite possible that the murder took place exactly as the press, claiming the CIA as the ultimate source, has described it.  On the other hand, there is no reason to believe anyone in the media, whether Jim Acosta or Sean Hannity,  and after the past few years it is pretty clear we have no reason to believe the FBI, and if the FBI is specializing in political propaganda, can the CIA--the agency that appears to have engaged in massive drug smuggling in order to fund its black ops--be far behind?
