Tarpley article supports my view of government to some extent

By all accounts, Ambassador Stevens was assassinated by the organization known as Ansar al Islam, controlled by the infamous Sufian bin Qumu. Qumu, previously a member of the Al Qaeda affiliate calling itself Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, had been held up by the United States in the Guantanamo Bay concentration camp for several years until his release in 2007. Qumu had returned to Libya and set up al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), a key part of the effort to overthrow Qaddafi. Qumu’s career points up the widely misunderstood role of Guantanamo, which is not just a prison, but is also a training center for terrorists destined to be recycled back into the field in the service of the CIA.

Although this article supports my view of the nature of our government (see previous entry), it also implies that Obama has some power to counteract the military-intelligence complex. So, perhaps my view is overly simplistic, or discounts the human element. Organized Satanism might not be as monolithic as I tend to believe - there might be more internal power struggles than I've previously imagined.
