Post’s “Top Secret America” Hides the Real Secrets

On the eve of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the Washington Post has published excerpts of Top Secret America, a book based on a series of articles in the Post by Dana Priest and William M. Arkin. The book refers to “the new national security state,” meaning the U.S. military, the CIA, the FBI, and other public entities and even private contractors engaged in defense or intelligence work. One waits in vain for the Post to investigate and expose the strategic plans of the Muslim Brotherhood and other groups that want to destroy us.
“More than a dozen Washington Post journalists spent two years developing Top Secret America,” we are told.
The answer to the expansion of the “national security and intelligence system,” which is presented as a major problem in the work of Priest and Arkin, can be found in the activism of Priest’s husband, the silent partner in the series, a left-winger by the name of William Goodfellow. This is an open “secret” that the Post wants desperately to conceal from its readers. It leads to the exposure of the far-left networks behind much of the “real news” we see, read, and hear in the mainstream media.
Goodfellow runs the Soros-funded Center for International Policy (CIP), which “is in the vanguard of the movement to develop an alternative foreign and defense policy based on international cooperation, demilitarization and respect for human rights,” its newsletter proclaims.
Its other goals include:

  • Finding “new ways to encourage cooperation” with the Castro dictatorship.
  • “Reining in the CIA.”
  • “Ending the war in Afghanistan,” and
  • “Building public support for peace.”

The Goodfellow connection is never mentioned in the Priest bio on the paper’s website. William M. Arkin, a columnist and reporter with The Washington Post and washingtonpost.com since 1998, is the co-author of the book and the series and “has worked on the subject of government secrecy and national security affairs for more than 30 years,” his bio says.
