Daily Kos Founder Admits To Seeking CIA Job Before Getting Involved in the Dean Campaign

Kos In Uniform

Francis Holland of MyLeftWing writes about the CIA connections of Daily Kos founder and current operator, Markos Moulitsas.

Holland is immediately attacked by other MyLeftWing posters as having written something unverifiable, distorted, untrue and damaging to the reputation of the blog, MyLeftWing. I find it interesting how little consideration is given to the notion that a supposed leftist that sees no problem with the CIA or with even working for them (both of those things are admitted by Kos in the interview upon which the story was based) might actually be working for the CIA or had worked for the CIA. They are claiming that Holland’s assertions are ridiculous?

Is it ridiculous to suggest that if Kos did work for the CIA at some point that he might be forbidden to admit as much?

Is it ridiculous to suggest that the CIA has undercover agents and that if Kos is currently under the employ of the CIA that he might not be able to admit it?

I can’t prove these things but are these ridiculous assertions to make about a prominent political figure that voluntarily approached the CIA and went through the training program? Far from ridiculous, these are sensible guesses to make. However, they remain guesses. If only the desire for the truth and not some mainstream corporate respectability was the driving force of communities like MyLeftWing, and others, we wouldn’t be having this discussion about Kos because he’d be made irrelevant by serious political forces. As it stands, conservative netroot movements like DailyKos and this followers have been ordained as the serious political force themselves. A situation, CIA directed or not, that should worry anyone serious about Left politics in the United States.

  1. MAMZ has acknowledged now SOME but not all of the information posted at The Truth About Kos blog.

    However, MAMZ has still has failed to address the most damning fact: that he spent six months with the CIA in 2001.

    Listen to the audiotape where he admits his CIA involvement, so that you can effectively debate with people who are engaged in the cover-up.

    I have guest-posted your article above at the “Truth About Kos Blog.

  2. A fresh analysis of the timeline of the life of Markos C.A. Moultisas Zúñiga (MAMZ), based on testimony he gave in his speech at the Commonwealth Club on June 2, 2006, proves that MAMZ must have been at the CIA for AT LEAST one year, and maybe TWO YEARS. Wiki: Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga

    This means that after MAMZ completed the standard six-month CIA interviewing period, he must have accepted to be trained by the CIA WITH PAY in the months that followed.

    This is NOT what MAMZ has told the public, and it appears that he must clearly have lied about the nature and duration of his involvement with the CIA. In his June 2, 2006 speech to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, MAMZ said that he began “interviewing” at the CIA in 2001.


    During the Commonwealth Club speech, MAMZ ALSO said that his time at the CIA ended when he began working for Howard Dean. However, upon reviewing the historical record, it was only on 18 months later, on June 9, 2003 that MAMZ “officially” announced at DailyKos that his consulting firm, (Jerome) Armstrong/Zúñiga, had won a consulting contract with Howard Dean’s presidential campaign.

    On June 9, 2003, MAMZ announced at DailyKos, “I’ve been on the road a lot the past few months ( . . . ) the bulk of it was for my new political consulting firm (alongside my partner). I spent this weekend in Burlington, VT, where we officially accepted work on behalf of presidential candidate Howard Dean” DailyKos Archives

    So, count the months: Even if MAMZ began his time at the CIA on December 31, 2001, he would have to have still been there 17 months later if he turned down permanent employment at the CIA because he began to work for Howard Dean. Wiki: Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga

    This analysis of the timeline is based on MAMZ’s own words. This proves that, based on MAMZ own recollection of events, he MUST have worked at the CIA for at least 18 months, including a full year AFTER he started DailyKos.

    Since MAMZ started DailyKos May 22, 2002, the inescapable conclusion of this analysis of the timeline is that MAMZ was employed and training at the CIA for at least 17 to 18 months during the very same period when he was leading an ostensibly leftist anti-war blog.

    It does seem to present a very serious conflict of interest and breach of the public trust to lead an anti-war blog at the same time that one is secretly working for a Government agency whose job is to investigate, infiltrate and disrupt anti-war activities.

    Because the proof comes from a careful analysis of MAMZ’s own words, this is no longer in the realm of “conspiracy theories.” It is an infiltration in-fact of the anti-war movement and the Democratic Party by an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency.

    Because of censorship issues at MyLeftWing (in that we have been ordered by the owner, Maryscott OConnor, not to investigate the MAMZ/CIA facts any further at that blog, and some of us have been banned for insisting on doing so) Peeder of MyLeftWing has started a new blog – “Political Fleshfeast” – specifically for the purpose of continuing the investigation and analysis of CIA infiltration the Establishment blogosphere, blog apartheid, and other issues whose investigation leads to bannings at the Establishment blogs.

    At this new blog, the blogger who first broke the story at MyLeftWing of MAMZ’s CIA involvement, Stupiddy, has been re-analyzing the biographical information provided by Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ).

    To make this story easier for the reading public to follow, I have prepared a MS Word-based chronological timeline table of Markos C.A. Moulitsas’ life, that makes the graphic and visual case that MAMZ was probably on the CIA payroll for as long as two years, based on his own statements.
