Michael Hayden, CIA head, spewing out New World Order eugenic dreams/nightmares

CIA director worried over world population trends

He cites growth of population in nations that may not be allies


MANHATTAN, KAN. — The world is changing in ways that promise little good for the future of the United States, CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden said Wednesday.

He cited population growth in poor and unstable countries, the emergence of a European Muslim underclass and an increasingly bold China.

"China is a competitor — certainly in the economic realm and increasingly on the geopolitical stage," he said at Kansas State University.

He then added more optimistically: "China is NOT an inevitable enemy of the United States. There are good policy choices available to both Washington and Beijing."

Much of the world population growth, he noted, is in Latin and Asian countries that are not necessarily American allies and that have not been able to establish stable democracies.

The Muslim population in Europe is growing at a quick pace while the traditional European birth rate is declining. Assimilation on the continent was the exception rather than the rule, he said.

He suggested that would add to differences in how to approach terrorism in the future: "It is not yet clear when or if the United States and Europe will come to share the same views of 21st-century threats — as we did for the last half of the 20th century — and then forge a common approach to security."

But Hayden delivered his most pointed comments against China, saying the Asian giant had learned lessons on the sidelines of the two gulf wars and had been investing heavily in military hardware and technology.

That new muscle, Hayden predicted, would be flexed in the struggle for the world's dwindling resources.

"It is the intelligence community's view that any Chinese government, even a democratic one, would have similar nationalistic goals."

Hayden, a four-star Air Force general, previously served as director of another highly secret Washington institution, the code-breaking, communications-mining National Security Agency.

When he was named to the CIA post two years ago, some senators questioned having a military leader in charge of the civilian operation at Langley, Va.

Hayden recently announced that he would retire in July from the Air Force, while retaining the directorship of the CIA.

After the speech, Hayden complained about the Senate Intelligence Committee trying to impose restrictions on CIA interrogation of terror suspects.

Almost identical legislation was vetoed by President Bush last year. The Senate panel would limit the questioning of such suspects to 19 techniques spelled out in the Army field manual.

Hayden said the manual, which was designed to in effect protect someone like a captured 18-year-old enemy infantry private, did not necessarily set out the appropriate limits for CIA agents.
