Is American Intelligence going Mad?

Unread post by simonshack » Mon Jul 19, 2010 7:16 pm


Is this Washington Post "investigation" designed to provide an excuse for the next
'communication breakdown' and 'ineptness' in handling the Terrorist Threat?
Place your bets, folks!

‎"Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on
programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence
in about 10,000 locations across the United States."

And unfortunately all those moronic tea-partiers screaming about
shrinking the government have no intention of reducing the money spent
on the military, CIA, and all this other crap.

It's too bad much of America is so stupid, bloodthirsty, and unwilling to mature beyond the false left/right partisan distractions.

The Drooling Beast of War Is Forever Hungry

When we come upon a murderer covered with the blood of victims who never threatened him, we do not defend him by appealing to his "good intentions" or by claiming that "he meant well" -- at least, we do not if we seek to remain civilized.

In terms of its foreign policy of aggressive, ceaseless, violent interventionism, the United States has been a murderer of this kind on the world stage for over a century. And our ruling class continues to state repeatedly, in a manner demanding that we credit the assertions, that their infernal and bloody work is far from done. ... ungry.html

Imagine the terrible consequences if a few Al Qaida terrorists were among the 875,000 people with Top Secret clearances! It could be even worse than a Muslim psychiatrist at Ft Hood!


Interestingly, Slate is attempting to link the Christmas Underwear Bomber and fake Oil Spill to the Tea Party. Where are they going with this 'American hypocrites' theme?


American Hypocrites
The only thing Americans hate more than big government is the absence of government protection.

[...] I've watched the Tea Party evolve from a joke into a political force.

Americans--with their lawsuit culture, their safety obsession, and above all their addiction to government spending programs--demand more from their government than just about anybody else in the world. They don't just want the government to keep the peace and create a level playing field. They want the government to ensure that every accident and every piece of bad luck is either prevented or fully compensated. And if the price of their house drops, they will hold the government responsible for that, too.

When, through a series of flukes, a crazy person smuggled explosives onto a plane at Christmas, the public bayed for blood and held the White House responsible. When, thanks to bad luck and planning mistakes, an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, the public bayed for blood and held the White House responsible again.

If we didn't believe that Anne Applebaum was a respected independent journalist we could almost conclude that she was working for the White House and trying very hard to fit some canned psyop themes into her 'article'.
