The Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), a group of former high-level American intelligence veterans, addressed an open letter to President Donald Trump on Dec. 21 countering the claim of key members of the Trump Administration and others, that Iran is a leading state sponsor of international terrorism. That “dubious distinction”, according to the letter signed by the entire VIPS board and published in Consortium News, goes to “Iran’s accusers – first and foremost Saudi Arabia”.
EIR held an intense conference in Manhattan on Sept. 9 on the theme “The ‘Russian Hack’ Inside Job: Who’s Trying To Destroy The Presidency And Start A World War With Russia?” Featured speakers were two experts of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) William Binney and Ray McGovern, as well as EIR’s William Wertz. The event drew a packed crowd, including many activists from organizations eager to hear the evidence of how the “Deep State” (financial interests, intelligence community, complicit media and politicians) manipulated the entire Russiagate affair.
At a LaRouche PAC forum in Manhattan on Aug. 19, 2017 two founding members of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) gave a detailed report on the forensic evidence concerning the emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) computers that were leaked, and not hacked, while providing a fascinating look into how the intelligence community in the United States operates (or rather mis-operates). The two experts were Ray McGovern, a CIA analyst for 27 years who prepared the U.S. President’s daily brief in the 1980s, and William Binney, a technical expert of the NSA for over 30 years who designed many of the technologies still used today,
A strategic priority is to circulate as widely as possible the recent memorandum by the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) which refutes the Russian “hacking” of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and thereby discredits the main argument for the current witch-hunt against the Trump Administration as well as the drive for war.
The memorandum released on July 24 by the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), a group of former high-level intelligence officers, makes the case that the emails from the Democratic National Committee computers given to Wikileaks, were not hacked by “Russians” but leaked from the inside. These findings in themselves debunk the entire fairy tale of the Kremlin’s manipulation of the U.S. electoral process, which explains why no major media has covered the memo. Numerous blogs have, however.
Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, a well-known leader of the group of patriotic former U.S. intelligence agents calling themselves the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), asked some pointed questions concerning the frenzied drive to overthrow President Trump. In an interview with RT on July 26, McGovern called on the U.S. Congress and President Trump to specifically investigate former FBI Director James Comey’s role in setting up the “Russians hacked the email of the Democratic National Committeee” fraud.
The following statement was posted on July 25 on the www.LaRouchePAC.com website for mass distribution:
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, CIA Director John Brennan, political figures in both parties, as well as the mainstream U.S. media have still not tired of blaming Hillary Clinton’s loss of the presidential election on “hacking” by Russian intelligence and President Putin. Brennan claimed that “there is a strong consensus [among intel chiefs] on the scope, nature and intent of Russian interference in our presidential elections.”
