CIA 'Fact Book'? -
Take A Closer Look
By Ted Twietmeyer

Below are key data taken from the CIA's "World Fact Book."  We hear periodically at one time or another people quoting this book, and it was time to take a closer look. The unchecked errors and outright lies are there for anyone to see. Anyone who quotes data from this book should be suspect. Or perhaps they have not taken it out into the sanitizing light of day. Even though some of the following data are 5 years old, most of the important facts are grossly understated or just left out as "NA."
According to the agency, this fact book was supposedly updated two months ago on Nov. 1st 2005
(according to their website at .)
Author's commentary on various figures in this book of fiction are shown below in [ ].
Unemployment Rate
5.5% (2004 est.)
[This is more like 15% to 30% and has been for about 3 years now, and increasing daily. Anyone that doesn't agree should pick one of their neighbors at random and go over and ask them. It's almost a certaintly everyone has one or more neighbors who are unemployed. Again, note how this "fact book" was just updated 2 months ago as of this writing. When the big discount grocery store Aldi's has employment day, the line of people wraps all the way around the inside of the store, and people are sent from one table to another like cattle. It reminds one of movies showing 1929 employment lines. All should bow to the dictator for our accelerated third world status.]
Population Below
Poverty Line:
12% (2004 est.)
[Many experts strongly disagree - the real value is at least two to three times this figure. Go ask a neighbor if you aren't already a member of the "working poor." Note: We're not including people that use credit cards foolishly to make themselves poor either. We're talking job wages so low people cannot survive on them. Just ask almost anyone who is now renting if they think they will ever be able to buy a home.]
Household Income Or Consumption By Percentage Share:
Lowest 10%: 1.8%
Highest 10%: 30.5% (1997)
Distribution Of
Family Income:
45 (2004)
Inflation Rate (consumer
2.5% (2004 est.)
[Apparently the authors of the fact book have never stepped foot into a grocery store or filled a gas tank. Perhaps the authors live in log cabins and just walk to work through the nearby woods around Langley. Or, the person makes so much money working at the agency that their butler does everything for them...]
Investment (gross
15.7% of GDP (2004 est.)
[Invested WHERE, and IN WHAT? If the USA is running a big deficit - how can it invest in anything at all? Perhaps we are all involuntarily investing in Sharon's modernized version of the Berlin Wall. I don't see any investment by the government in JOBS in America, do you?]
Revenues: $1.862 trillion
Expenditures: $2.338 trillion, including capital expenditures of NA (2004 est.)
[More lies - deficit is nearing12 trillion. But since the pentagon manages to lose billions of dollars at a time - how can we really know just how bad it is? I can't spend far more than I earn, so how can the government do so indefinitely? It cannot.]
Public Debt:
65% of GDP (2004 est.)
[Public debt is politician-created debt. Public debt is well known to be far greater than 100% of the GDP. This figure is rising daily in hundreds of millions of dollars, thanks to the idiotic war we cannot win.]
Agriculture - Products:
wheat, corn, other grains, fruits, vegetables, cotton; beef, pork, poultry, dairy products; forest products; fish
Leading industrial power in the world, highly diversified and technologically advanced; petroleum, steel, motor vehicles, aerospace, telecommunications, chemicals, electronics, food processing, consumer goods, lumber, mining
[How many of the above categories does the US really lead in today? Most of the steel mills were shutdown many years ago, The only steel we export appears to come from buildings blown up by government funded terrorists. Motor vehicle assembly is being moved to China, and almost ALL electronic components are now made overseas. The US petroleum industry is nothing more than a cruel joke.
And what about mining? Foreign interests have come here from Canada, leased government land in the west for $1.00 an acre and strip mine it of gold. The gold is taken out of the country, and not one cent is ever paid to the American people as a fee. This has been on television documentaries, and the billions of dollars stolen out of the US soil could have been used to help balance our budget. You won't find this pillaging discussed the "fact book."]
Industrial Production Growth:
4.4% (2004 est.)
[What growth? We cannot have unemployment on the rise, and still have REAL growth. That defies all common sense. This figure is utterly ridiculous since most manufacturing has moved to China. Remember that the agency webpage this data came from, was updated two months ago. The only real "growth" is overseas, not here. But everyone knows this is far higher than 4.4%.]
Electricity - production:
3.839 trillion kWh (2002)
Electricity - consumption:
3.66 trillion kWh (2002)
Electricity - exports:
13.36 billion kWh (2002)
Electricity - imports:
36.23 billion kWh (2002)
Oil - production:
7.8 million bbl/day (2004 est.)
Oil - consumption:
19.65 million bbl/day (2001 est.)
[They expect us to believe these outdated figures? There are devices known as ELECTRIC METERS and FLOW METERS which have been around for 100 years, and are installed everywhere. Yet they claim current production, consumption, exports and imports shown below are NA? We can see that we produce enough electricity, yet we import 36 billion kWh? The only country we can "import" electricity from is Canada.]
Oil - Exports:
[Export WHAT oil? It should read "no surplus" is we are to believe the whining of oil companies, especially after Katrina. And how can the agency know oil production and consumption values, but not know how much we export? Oil companies are perfect examples of the story about the boy who cried wolf.]
Oil - imports:
[How convenient that this is NA. This should read "Held at 80% and forced to remain that way by government control to insure dependence on foreign oil. Congress sits idly by and allows it."]
Oil - Proved
22.45 billion bbl (1 January 2002)
[This oil is reserved for a "rainy day" that will never come. Wiped-out and shut down oil refineries are certaintly not a valid reason to use this reserve, right?
Even a comet strike will not be a sufficient reason to use it. Why? Because after such an event, the government will state "we can't use the oil because now the distribution system is too badly damaged. You must walk and freeze instead."]
Natural Gas - Production:
548.1 billion cu m (2001 est.)
[Think that gas companies don't have to file regular government paperwork on their production like all other commodities do? Anyone that thinks the government doesn't know EXACTLY how much gas is produced, sees a fool in the mirror each morning. WHY isn't this a 2005 figure, instead of an old figure?]
Natural Gas - Consumption:
640.9 billion cu m (2001 est.)
[Meters are placed on ALL businesses, homes, gas lines and pipelines, yet we are supposed to believe that no one knows exactly how much total gas is consumed and it must be "estimated" AND out of date? Those that believe it should go look in the mirror in the morning and see if a fool is looking back at them.]
Natural Gas - Exports:
11.16 billion cu m (2001 est.)
[The natural gas production/consumption figures above show a production vs. consumption DEFICIT of 92.8 BILLION cu m. Logically, how can the US export ANY natural gas at all? Is gas shipped out and then shipped back again, just so the goverment can say we exported it? Or, is this exported "natural gas" created by cattle which then rises up to the jet stream? WHY don't they have actual numbers from 2005, instead of another "estimate?" Note that evn though it's estimated, it begins with the infamous number "11."]
Natural Gas - Imports:
114.1 billion cu m (2001 est.)
[This must be where the exported 11.16 billion cu m is shipped back just for the exercise? Note how this figure is more than 10x the gas exports - yet we can still export gas? If we are importing more gas than we consume - WHERE IS IT STORED, or WHO/WHAT CORPORATION is using it? Note that the figure shown is estimated, yet it also begins with "11," too.]
Natural Gas - Proved Reserves:
5.195 trillion cu m (1 January 2002)
[We must keep these TRILLIONS of cubic meters of gas in reserve in order to keep the price high, even after hurricanes have closed refineries. The winter of 2005-2006 have resulted in a doubling of gas prices in the northeast which are brutal on everyone, but still the reserves are NOT USED. These reserves will NEVER be touched, for any reason. Flooding, devastated cities and refineries and a brutal economy are NOT considered valid reasons to use these reserves. We must keep them available for the NWO for it to use as it pleases, or for them to just steal it as an asset when they take over. For all we know, it might already be gone.]
Current Account Balance:
$-646.5 billion (2004 est.)
[What account is this referring to? The government has thousands of accounts for numerous departments. And a large majority of them are classified, which may or may not be included in the above figure. If they can't provide the oil imports or exports figures - HOW can they even begin to estimate the "account balance?" Uncle (sam) was the inventor of voo-doo bookkeeping - no wonder the presses at the national mint are overheating. You and I can't write checks with a negative account balance - but Uncle Sam does, and has done so for almost 100 years.]
$795 billion f.o.b. (2004 est.)
[Export WHAT? It appears to be referring to JOBS, since the US has so little manufacturing left to make anything cheap enough to satisfy a Walmart world.]
Exports - Commodities:
agricultural products (soybeans, fruit, corn) 9.2%, industrial supplies (organic chemicals) 26.8%, capital goods (transistors, aircraft, motor vehicle parts, computers, telecommunications equipment) 49.0%, consumer goods (automobiles, medicines) 15.0% (2003)
[Someone apparently never told the fact book author that almost all transistors, computers, telecommunication equipment and many motor vehicle parts are made in the Pacific rim countries.]\
Exports - Partners:
Canada 23%, Mexico 13.6%, Japan 6.7%, UK 4.4%, China 4.3% (2004)
[What do we export to China that they can't make themselves? They have done this for decades, long before 2004.]
$1.476 trillion f.o.b. (2004 est.)
[What imports are they referring to? It must be Wal-Mart and K-Mart inventory. This figure shows only the very tip of the trade deficit iceberg.]
Imports - Commodities:
agricultural products 4.9%, industrial supplies 32.9% (crude oil 8.2%), capital goods 30.4% (computers, telecommunications equipment, motor vehicle parts, office machines, electric power machinery), consumer goods 31.8% (automobiles, clothing, medicines, furniture, toys) (2003)
[A walk through any WalMart of K-Mart will show the above import list is far from complete. Remember that screwdriver someone gave you as a present that proved worthless when you tried to use it? If it was made in an American factory, it would last you a lifetime. Yet the billions of dollars from imported tools is not even listed above. Neither are rubber mallets, which the fact book's author should be tapped on the head with to see is somebody is home.]
Imports - Partners:
Canada 17%, China 13.8%, Mexico 10.3%, Japan 8.7%, Germany 5.2% (2004)
Reserves Of Foreign Exchange And Gold:
$85.94 billion (2003)
[Where are these reserves stored? The term "foreign exchange" is about as fuzzy as it gets. And who's gold does it belong to? Are these reserves government or foreign? Several days before 9-11 happened, the vaults under the WTC were completely emptied under armed guard into tractor trailers. This happened according to numerous eye-witnesses.
Ft. Knox is known to have little or no gold since US currency dropped the gold standard many decades ago. A guide opened a door at the "vault building" at Ft. Knox for documentary cameras about two years ago. The door was located on the side of the building. It showed a tiny little room too small for even one person to stand in. Gold bars stacked up to the ceiling on three walls. Then the door was shut. Is this is all the gold left in the fort? Perhaps so. Is this it still possible for America's currency to be based on gold? No, because we no longer have a gold-backed currency! Instead we have suffered at the hands of the privately run Federal Reserve Bank for about 100 years now, which isn't really "federal" at all. And this is why all the greenbacks in your pocket have the word "note" printed on them. When you buy anything today, you are only trading one kind of debt for another.]
Debt - External:
$1.4 trillion (2001 est.)
[Debt was FAR LARGER than that in 2001, even though it was claimed we had a "surplus" when Willy returned home to Arkansas. More voo-doo ecomonics. Why isn't the TRUE number shown for 2004 or 2005? Perhaps because it's too frightening even for the spooks to look at.]
Economic Aid - Donor:
ODA, $6.9 billion (1997)
[Again - Why use an OLD OBSOLETE FIGURE HERE? Why not 2004? Why not show how many BILLIONS of dollars was given to Israel? That alone deserves its own line item. It is well known world-wide that they received most of the aid, a.k.a. a "handout."]
Currency (code):
US dollar (USD)
[Printed daily on presses which are wearing out from non-stop use.]
Exchange Rates:
British pounds per US dollar - 0.5457 (2004), 0.6139 (2003), 0.6661 (2002), 0.6944 (2001), 0.6596 (2000); Canadian dollars per US dollar - 1.3014 (2004), 1.4045 (2003), 1.5693 (2002), 1.5488 (2001), 1.4851 (2000); Japanese yen per US dollar - 108.13 (2004), 116.08 (2003), 125.39 (2002), 121.53 (2001), 107.77 (2000); euros per US dollar - 0.8048 (2004), 0.8866 (2003), 1.0626 (2002), 1.1175 (2001), 1.08540 (2000)
With all the lies and old/missing data published as facts - can we believe ANYTHING we are told? One must have  a good calculator and good common sense to read this book. These are required whenever "facts" from the government are presented. Why doesn't the world come to OUR aid when we need them? Because many countries despise the very air we breathe. And those in the world that take billions in aid from America, never have to pay it back. They feel they don't even owe Americans the time of day.
President Kennedy was right - "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." We can start by sending all the crooked NWO-oriented policitians back under the rocks they came from and take America back. We will never be able to repay trillions in debt to other countries, but we can STOP the over-spending now and regain the respect of the world. 
A dictator out of control has done this to you, me and America. Now the unpleasant task of stopping it is upon the American people. American citizens are the true policeman.
