Interests Foreign policy of the United States
Set up in 1789, the US State Department is the United States federal executive department responsible for international relations of the United States, equivalent to the foreign ministry of other countries.

The US House of Representatives and the US Senate approved legislation to establish a Department of Foreign Affairs on July 21, 1789, and President Washington signed it into law on July 27, making the Department of Foreign Affairs the first Federal agency to be created under the new Constitution. The Department is led by the US Secretary of State, who is nominated by the US President and confirmed by the Senate.

Official narrative

Something to do with party politics about serving the electorate.

US Deep state control

The US deep state needs effective control over the US Department of State. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears to have implied, albeit unwittingly, that it is de facto controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations.[1]

Further evidence of external control is provided by Sibel Edmonds, who described a recurring pattern in FBI and DEA operations. Potentially successful operations were often interrupted at the last minute by intervention from senior State Department officials, stating that since the individuals involved had diplomatic immunity, their arrest would create a major diplomatic incident and must not happen. The fact that they are repeatedly aware of supposedly secret operations and intervene in real time indicates that the "separation of powers" is no longer a reality and suggests that - at least for US government employees in the FBI and DEA, realtime mass surveillance has become routine.[2]

Activities

The Integrity Initiative leak revealed that the US Department of State contributed £250,000 to the Institute for Statecraft.

Fraud

In 2013 the Washington Post published a story about the State Department's spending over $630,000 to increase Facebook "likes" for four of its pages on the social-networking site, citing an report from the inspector general as the source. The report also claims that the state department now spends only around $30,000/year on online advertising.[3]

Funding from US/State Department, £250,000 for research and dissemination activities (excluding any activity in USA)
