West Metro Critical Thinking Club

TOPIC: Propaganda and Psychopathy, Psychology 101 eveyone needs to know
Critical Thinking is essential to see through the Neo Con's war propaganda to push people's emotional buttons such as fear, hate, greed and false pride. Basic ingrediants of psychopathy are the predator's skiil at reading and manipulating not to mention their utter lack of concern about the past or the future.
SPEAKER: Coleen Rowley, in May of 2002 Coleen Rowley brought some of the pre 9-11 lapses to light and testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee about the endemic problems facing the FBI and the intelligence community. Rowley's memo to the FBI Director in connection with the Joint Intelligence Committee's Inquiry led to a two year long Department of Justice Inspector General investigation. She was one of three whistleblowers chosen as persons of the year by TIME magazine. In April 2003, following an unsuccessful and highly criticized attempt to warn the Director and other administration officials about the dangers of launching the invasion of Iraq, Rowley stepped down from her (GS-14) legal position to go back to being a (GS-13) FBI Special Agent. She retired from the FBI at the end of 2004 and now speaks and writes on two different topics: ethical decision-making and "civil liberties and effective investigation."

    It was a great meeting. The whole topic of psychopathology is fascinating - important to understand when looking at powerful people.
