This is the second of the 5-part non-profit documentary film series, ‘Counter-Intelligence’ by the gifted independent filmmaker, Scott Noble. This episode, “The Deep State” begins with the implications of the Iran-Contra cover-up, as one of the first looks that a broader American public got a peek at the National Security State.

The film series has been lauded roundly by multiple CIA veterans and by college professors, alike – the latter recommending this series to become part of the coursework for classes on political science, history, sociology and cultural criticism.


Acclaim for

“An extraordinary work by a gifted filmmaker, “Counter-Intelligence” shines sunlight into the darkest crevices of empire run amok. The film vividly exposes a monstrous and unconstitutional “deep state” in which multiple competing chains of command — all but one illegal — hijack government capabilities and taxpayer funds to commit crimes against humanity in our name. Anyone who cares about democracy, good government, and the future will want to watch all five segments of this remarkable film.”

“A beautifully crafted and thought-provoking journey through America’s secret wars.”

— Trevor Paglen
Author, The Dark Geography of the Pentagon’s Secret World


“Sunshine is the best disinfectant. With Counter-Intelligence, Scott Noble is here to clean house.”

— Stephen Lendman
Veterans Today


“A compelling, prodigious work,”

— Kathy Christison
Former CIA Officer


“A groundbreaking, much needed review of the structure and operational capability of America’s intelligence bureaucracy.”

— Bo Filter
Author, The Cause of Wars and Aggression


“Scott Noble may have outdone himself with Counter Intelligence. The Psywar filmmaker amassed a tour de force of power elite and deep state scholars weighing in and synthesizing decades of research. From the rise of the national security state and mass proliferation of state/corporate propaganda to the normalization of constant, now remote (drone) warfare and the ongoing decay of constitutional rights, Noble lays out some of the most significant, yet oft overlooked or outright censored information about one of the most significant issues of our times– Black-Ops. Noble helps expose the real conspiracies of the powerful factually, transparently, and responsibly. It’s a film that should be screening across the US, but given the nature and subject of the film, don’t count on it. Share and show it far and wide. Counter-Intelligence would be an excellent addition to college classes on political science, history, sociology, or critical thinking to spark debate and discussion, utilizing what’s left of our First Amendment rights while we still can.”
