This is a 2009 interview with Steve Pieczenik – and it’s as relevant today, as ever. Get ready to have your ears blown up and feel free to do any *quiet* chores that you’ve been putting off, as you listen to this knock-out radio interview by Steve Quayle on Coast to Coast AM.
Steve Pieczenik is the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance and James Baker, during the presidential administrations of Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
He has been fictionally portrayed as the character, Jack Ryan in a number of Tom Clancy novels and was Clancy’s business partner on those projects, where he functioned mainly as a technical consultant.
He is also a writer, in his own right, with several novels, a self-help book and works of poetry under his belt.
The renowned Tom Clancy, who fictionalized Steve Pieczenik in several his works, was a very prolific and successful author, known for his spy novels which were distinguished for being technically-detailed and loaded with military science (due to Pieczenik’s help). Most of these novels were set during and in the aftermath of the Cold War.
A whopping seventeen of Clancy’s novels were bestsellers, with more than 100 million copies of his books currently in print.
Due to the espionage themes of Clancy’s work, his recent death, in October 2013 from heart disease was inevitably rumored by many to be a murder.
Dr. Pieczenik, once a fully-accredited MD psychiatrist, was forced to resign from the American Psychiatrist’s Association (APA), after telling Newsweek that President H. W. Bush was “clinically depressed,” during the time he was serving him, as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.
Pieczenik’s expertise also includes foreign policy, international crisis management and psychological warfare. He has been given much credit as a key figure in bringing down the Soviet Union. Cuba-born Pieczenik is the son of Russian parents.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Mary McGrory described Stephen Pieczenik as “one of the most ‘brilliantly competent’ men in the field of terrorism” and Pieczenik was involved in the devising successful negotiating strategies and tactics used in several high-profile hostage situations.
Pieczenik is self-described as a Patriot of the United States and he goes into great detail, in this interview about the many ways in which the US Government has now turned against its own people – and about how heartbroken he is about this current state of affairs.
Pieczenik has called himself a “maverick troublemaker,” who has made many controversial claims, including the following:
* On May 3, 2011, radio host Alex Jones aired an interview in which he claimed that Osama Bin Laden had died of Marfan syndrome in 2001 shortly after the September 11 attacks (as also claimed by numerous Arab-language newspapers in December of 2001).
* In the same interview, Pieczenik claimed that the attacks on the United States on 9/11 were part of a false flag operation by entities within the American government.
* On October 20, 2011 in another interview with Alex Jones, Pieczenik claimed that Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi is alive and he said, “There’s no way they killed Muammar Gaddafi, that’s not our operating mode and I’ve been involved in 30 years, with the takeouts and regime changes.”
* Pieczenik has also slammed President Barack Obama by calling him an “obsessional, pathological liar”.
* On March 27, 2013, Pieczenik claimed Sandy Hook was a hoax and that it was a false flag event.
* On 9 May 2013, Pieczenik claimed Benghazi was the result of a turf war between the CIA and military intelligence agencies: National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), etc.
* Pieczenik said that the CIA wanted to get rid of General Petraeus (and they did). Obama wanted his appointee, John Brennan to replace Patraeus as the Director of National Intelligence, to get him to have the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) unit to “illegally” arm the Syrian rebels, which Pieczenik calls an “impeachable offense.”
SOCOM is the Unified Combatant Command charged with overseeing the various Special Operations Component Commands of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps of the US Armed Forces.
