The CIA Term BLOWBACK, What Does It Mean For The PMC Torturers Of Targeted Individuals

The BLOWBACK SYNDROME: Oil Wars and Overreach
[niceyoutube id=”j5SoE9vBc6I”]

For times like this, when there might be unintended public reaction to the CIA’s interferences in others private affairs. The Private Military Contractors (PMC) Handlers of Targeted Individuals are set up for this Blowback syndrome. Soon enough the time will come when this psychopathic program of torturing the American Citizens will probably come to an end.

Rarely have wars and conflicts of this type lasted more than 10 or 15 years before the people get fed up and put a dead stop to it in the form of a passive revolt. This war is right on schedule. In the slim chance the Private Contractor Handlers get immunity for torturing and murdering American Citizens, they would surely lose in the court of public opinion. The normal people will think psychopaths are just too scary in light of pain and death they have just caused, to allow them to remain among the normal people. Everyone who participated in torture will have to be taken into protective custody for the greater good and relocated to FEMA camps for the time being. Their fate will be decided later.

Here is the more well known definition of the term Blowback :

Blowback {excerpt} is unintended consequences of a covert operation that are suffered by the aggressor. To the civilians suffering the blowback of covert operations, the effect typically manifests itself as “random” acts of political violence without a discernible, direct cause; because the public—in whose name the intelligence agency acted—are unaware of the effected secret attacks that provoked revenge (counter-attack) against them.  IA is worried about the publics response to the CIA TORTURE REPORT.  So much so that the redacted a good portion of the report.   Then got caught spying on Senate staffers who were auditing the report.


Originally, blowback was CIA internal coinage denoting the unintended, harmful consequences—to friendly populations and military forces—when a given weapon is used beyond its purpose as intended by the party supplying it. Examples include anti-Western religious figures (e.g. Osama bin Laden) who, in due course, attack foe and sponsor; right-wing counter-revolutionaries who sell drugs to their sponsor’s civil populace (see CIA and Contras cocaine trafficking in the US); and banana republic juntas (see Salvadoran Civil War) who kill American reporters or nuns (e.g. Dorothy Kazel).[citation needed]

In formal print usage, the term blowback first appeared in the Clandestine Service History—Overthrow of Premier Mossadeq of Iran—November 1952–August 1953, the CIA’s internal history of the 1953 Iranian coup d’état, sponsored by the US and UK, which was published in March 1954. Blowback from this operation would indeed occur with the Iranian Revolution and the Iran hostage crisis.

Chalmers Ashby Johnson {excerpt} (August 6, 1931 – November 20, 2010) was an American author and professor emeritus of the University of California, San Diego. He served in the Korean War, was a consultant for the CIA from 1967 to 1973, and chaired the Center for Chinese Studies at the University of California, Berkeley from 1967 to 1972. He was also president and co-founder with Steven Clemons of the Japan Policy Research Institute (now based at the University of San Francisco), an organization promoting public education about Japan and Asia. He wrote numerous books including, most recently, three examinations of the consequences of American Empire: Blowback, The Sorrows of Empire, and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic. A former cold warrior, his fears for the US changed: “A nation can be one or the other, a democracy or an imperialist, but it can’t be both. If it sticks to imperialism, it will, like the old Roman Republic, on which so much of our system was modeled, lose its democracy to a domestic dictatorship.”

How Will This Blowback Effect the PMC Handler Torturers

It can be seeno man can control menn how the people are getting progressively more worked up and angry with the revelation of each new outrage? This is also what is called a classicle BUBBLE forming in public opinion leading up to the Blowback. The way it works is the people keep getting angrier and angrier until that virtual bubble gets stretched to the breaking point. All the torturers who are stupid enough to continue torturing until then will be court martialed and executed. The actual CIA employe es are in fact worried about what the public will think of them when the torture report comes out, because they tortured foreign terrorists.

The contractor handlers are still not worried what the public will think of them for torturing and murdering American Citizens in their homes.  Most people wold think this is quite a bit more severe, in that it is done to the American People directly.  Do the PMC Handlers know something the CIA torturers don’t know, I hardly think so.  The PMC Handlers are not familiar with the CIA term “BLOWBACK” and so they don’t know to look out for that sort of thing. I bet a CIA psychopath told them not to worry about it because as private contractors, they would get immunity;)  Whatever is causing their misplaced bravado, they might want to take a queue from their CIA overseers playbook. Usually people of that level are left to take the fall as their overseers retreat to a safe position.
