    Well. If this kind of bs passes there won't be anyone out there willing to be in the CIA or any other intelligence gathering entity. I sure wouldn't.

    I guess the country would just have take its chances. Jeeze.

    Actually, dollar for dollar, they likely cost the taxpayers a whole lot more than they are worth.


    Even the super duper MOSSAD cannot manage to get their shit together.

    FROM TIME to time I ask myself: what would happen if the world’s governments decided to abolish all their spy agencies simultaneously?

    True, it would be a great blow to the authors and movie producers who make their living from secret service stories. Their products would lose their appeal.

    It would be a disaster for the huge army of fans which gobbles up spy adventures, the enthusiastic consumers of books and movies about superhuman heroes like James Bond and super-devious geniuses like John La Carre’s Smiley.

    But what would be the real damage if Washington stopped spying on Moscow and Moscow stopped spying on Washington, and both on Beijing? The result would be a draw. Immense sums of money would be saved, since a large part of the efforts of every spy agency is devoted to obstructing the intrigues of the competition. How many diseases could be overcome? How many hungry people fed, how many illiterates taught to read and write?
    The popular books and movies celebrate the imaginary successes of the intelligence agencies. Reality is much more prosaic, and it is replete with real failures.

    THE TWO classic intelligence disasters occurred during World War II. In both, the intelligence agencies either provided their political bosses with faulty assessments, or the leaders ignored their accurate assessments. As far as the results are concerned, both amount to the same.

    Comrade Stalin was totally surprised by the German invasion of the Soviet Union, even though the Germans needed months to assemble their huge invasion force. President Roosevelt was totally surprised by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, even though the bulk of the Japanese Navy took part in it. The failures were so fantastic, that spy aficionados had to resort to conspiracy theories to explain them. One such theory says that Stalin deliberately ignored the warnings because he intended to surprise Hitler with an attack of his own. Another theory asserts that Roosevelt practically “invited” the Japanese to attack because he was in need of a pretext to push the US into an unpopular war.

    But since then, failures continued to follow each other. All Western spy agencies were totally surprised by the Khomeini revolution in Iran, the results of which are still hitting the headlines today. All of them were totally surprised by the collapse of the Soviet Union, one of the defining events of the 20th century. They were totally surprised by the fall of the Berlin wall. And all of them provided wrong information about Saddam Hussein’s imaginary nuclear bomb, which served as a pretext for the American invasion of Iraq.

    It's this attitude from the Obama administration that led us to have 3 Al Qaida attacks within the US in Obama's first year, when the previous 7 years we were protected from Al Qaida attacks within the US.

    And I have a force field that has protected my home from metoric impacts for many years.

    Then there is my mystic swiss army knife which has kept me safe from terrorists for all my life.

    Perhaps the morman magic underwear helped as well?

    You're beginning to freak me out. 8 posts and every single one of them just says 'thank you'. How odd.

    Don't forget your tin-foil hat that protects you from receiving mind melting microwaves from space aliens.

    I was trying to figure out who the USMB member was that started busting caps in the Pentagon yesterday. Word has it he was a truther. Maybe it was Curvelight.
