April 22, 2012 in United States
Occasionally, a seemingly insignificant story on mainstream media (MSM) gains my attention because it won’t go away. I’ve learned that this is an indication that something other than the story is taking place behind the scenes.
The latest story is the sex scandal surrounding the United States Secret Service. The short version of the story is that the advance Secret Service detail that went to Columbia for President Obama’s trip of the Summit of the Americas visited a legal brothel. After enjoying the services of the establishment, they refused to pay as agreed.
Some have speculated that Secretary of State Clinton’s office was upset because the Secret Service may have been the ones who released the pictures of her dancing and drinking in Columbia that weekend.
One thing is for sure.
After a week, this story just won’t go away.
Of course, it may just be election year politics. The Republicans are certainly using it as an excuse to bash Obama’s leadership abilities.
Or, it may be a smoke screen to hide something else.
Drake, who claims to be an insider spokesperson for the White Hats at the Pentagon, says it is a complete fabrication created by MSM. In his usual cryptic style he said, “The secret service is having a cow over a mess that does not exist… all of that is made up by mainstream media. The NY Times sez two supervisors are on suspension…not fired as reported. Everyone can take it from there.”
As I reviewed several lengthy stories this morning, I noticed they were long on implications and innuendos and short on facts, especially names. Even when names were mentioned, it was unclear exactly what happened with those people.
The story has become a mystery, veiled in secrecy, providing just enough information to cause the reader to wonder what really happened.
If the reports of upcoming arrests are accurate, it would seem that White Hats within the Secret Service would know about the plan. Therefore, one of the best ways to discredit those people would be to use the age-old technique of creating a sex scandal.
It would not only distract, it would discredit. It would cloud people’s minds into wondering who they can trust and which part of law enforcement is reliable.
By keeping this story in the public eye, MSM hopes to make it seem bigger than it is.
They hope to create confusion and chaos.
This would make it more difficult to implement the planned arrests and bring major change to the United States.
Therefore, the story remains in the headlines. Apparently, it will continue to do so until it has served its purpose.
