Kevin Shipp is a former CIA officer who spoke recently at a geoengineering conference in Redding, California. In this presentation, Shipp discusses government secrecy in general terms, without going into his own case in too much detail, although you will hear him refer briefly to what appear to have been government attempts to poison his family. Should you, however, after watching the video, want to know more about his own story, you can go here.
Shipp is the author of From the Company of Shadows, published in 2012. The book cover’s inside flap reads:
From the Company of Shadows is a fascinating revelation of the procedures the CIA uses in conducting covert operations, counterintelligence investigations and counter terrorism. This is a detailed expose’ covering multiple facets of government intelligence and secrecy.
Kevin Shipp, a decorated CIA officer, held several sensitive high level positions, operating in over twenty foreign countries and participating in life threatening assignments. He recounts some of these operations, including humorous events usually not revealed to the public.
Included with excerpts from his previous book In From the Cold. CIA Secrecy and Operations, Shipp provides additional detail disputing the account of reporter Bob Woodward’s alleged deathbed conversation with CIA Director William Casey during the Iran Contra Affair.
He provides a detailed expose’ of the CIA’s use of secrecy and the Executive Branch’s abuse of the little known State Secrets Privilege.
“From 1953 to the present the federal government, and most notoriously the CIA, has used the assertion of the State Secrets Privilege to block cases of negligence, discrimination, shut down whistleblower claims, prevent other branches of government from conducting investigations…and block contractors from resolving business conflicts…”
Shipp provides a stunning example of the CIA’s concealment of negligence by including excerpts from his book on the subject, blacked out by CIA censors. He spent months going back and forth, line by line, word by word, negotiating with the CIA for the book’s release.
He also supervised the Department of State Anti Terrorism Assistance program and managed the protective detail assigned to the president of Afghanistan following the US invasion.
Shipp courageously exposes the current stealth jihad movement operating in the US and lays out the techniques terrorist organizations use to carry out their attacks.
