Has anyone besides Digby commented on this? Scroll down to Michael Froomkin Update:
December 30, 2005 — More on Firstfruits. The organization partly involved in directing the National Security Agency program to collect intelligence on journalists — Firstfruits — is the Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC), a component of the National Intelligence Council. The last reported chairman of the inter-intelligence agency group was Dr. Larry Gershwin, the CIA’s adviser on science and technology matters, a former national intelligence officer for strategic programs, and one of the primary promoters of the Iraqi disinformation con man and alcoholic who was code named “Curveball.”
Digby provides a link to Firstfruits. The CIA’s agency in charge of domestic spying on American journalists was named Firstfruits. So there’s a CIA department on a mission from God to spy on journalists? This is skin crawling, send a shiver down your spine creepy.
