    I don’t know whether this guy is an agent of the Third Eye; the most secretive and ruthless intelligence service in the world. Formed before the WWII to coordinate joint actions of the Indian colonial parasites around the globe in particular the ones in the former India -British Empire mow the Indian Empire.
    Indian agents are in almost all Media Conglomerates in the West and in Indian colonies.
