In-Q-Tel: The CIA’s VC arm

Did you know that the CIA has a VC arm? It’s called In-Q-Tel. They invest in a whole bunch of companies, including Keyhole, now known as Google Earth.

  1. This should come as no surprise – The Company American Intl. Corporation
    along with the Rogenfelder dogs – Dulles – Harriman – Bush; have worked diligently to privatize the U.S. Government for their own personal fortunes. Much legislation – Civil Service especially was enacted to stop this dispicable and traiterous habit; yet privatization and subversion has accelerated…..why? In-Q-Tel: The CIA’s VC arm was put together by the Swiss Banking industries agent Krongard…..I wonder what an “independant” audit of that “industry” might turn up; about the personal fortunes of some of our respected leaders. Personally I believe that it is just plain greed……the Satanic variety; which is leading the world swiftly to that Armaggeddon which “the nations” were warned of long ago.
    Peace be with you; better is a dinner of herbs – that a feast with that “contentious woman”!
