Editor’s note: Wayne Madsen is an investigative journalist who has covered political happenings inside the Beltway for decades. His work is superior and his sources are global. He is owned by no one and is therefore free from corporate constraints to report the facts as told to him. Wayne and his investigative work is a rarity these days b/c corporate media cut investigative journalism budgets long ago. You know when you are reading a Wayne Madsen Report that it is the unvarnished truth, and obviously, reporting said truths, especially related to the empire’s CIC who has gone to great lengths to hide all there is to know about him, is threatening. Well, here’s a big clue – stop hiding who and what you truly are, Mr. President! Give American’s some credit – they may actually like the hidden Obama more than the pretend one seen in plain view everyday! And tell your lackey’s to back off because WE THE PEOPLE will be watching…closely.
