322 Meets 911: CIA Hands Over Drone Program to Pentagon

On March 22, 2013, the CIA gave control of the 'drone program' to the Pentagon, which began construction on the infamous date of September 11, 1941, 60 years to the day of the attack on the Pentagon.  It should also be noted, the CIA was founded by the 33rd President, Harry Truman.  On December 22, 1963, nearly 50 years ago, he stated that the CIA should be reduced to nothing more than an intelligence gathering agency.  Keep in mind, this was a month to the day of the assassination of JFK.

From Democracy Now:
March 22, 2013- The Obama administration is reportedly poised to shift control of its secret drone program from the CIA to the Pentagon. The move follows mounting scrutiny of targeted killings as the program’s architect, John Brennan, was confirmed to head the CIA. While the report follows calls for greater transparency in the drone war, some note the killings could easily remain covert under military control. The Pentagon already oversees drones in Afghanistan and Somalia, and in Yemen, along with the CIA.

Please recall March 22, or as a number, 322, represents Skull and Bones.  March 22 is marked with many historic date's in our nation's history, from the Stamp Act to Obamacare.  It is also the date the Federal Bureau of Investigation came into being.
