It’s scary to read that Hezbollah has also captured 100 Israeli agents. Everybody seems to think that the Israeli spy agency is the best.

Central Idiots Agency

Never saw the Soviet Collapse coming.

Spends more time undermining Presidents with even a shred of conservatism than actually working against the enemies of the USA. (Busted Reagan on Iran Contra, misled Bush on Iraq WMDs, etc.)

When they get a statist liberal in the WH, they die, yet continue to promote socialism/statism.

Idiots.

Like a little kid trying to be accepted by the A-clique, Obama, Barry, (whatever his real name is) will do anything to ingratiate himself to the Muslims.

He is still having flashbacks about being put in the low tier ‘infidel Catholic school’ when he first arrived in Indonesia. He still needs to prove to the Muzzies that he is worthy. He craves their acceptance. He has the mind of a teenager and cares nothing about America at all.

I would not work for him internationally. I do not trust him, or anyone in his administration, to keep anything at all secret. And the same goes for that shrill yenta Hillary.

When he says the most transparent administration ever he is talking about our enemies, not us.

He has already openly given NASA to Muslim outreach. And there is no way to know how much other sensitive classified technological and other secrets he has simply given away to his friends, our enemies.

“gay congressman Barney Frank’s appearance at the CIA to speak to its gay employees. Loeb said it reflects a break with the agency’s “homophobic” past. This term “homophobic” is pushed by the gays themselves to smear their opponents. You can’t find the term in some older dictionaries. Critics of the gay lifestyle are said to be “homophobic” — that is, they have an irrational fear of gays. But the gays themselves, who engage in dangerous sexual practices involving pain, and lie about it, are supposed to be normal.

The story itself deserves to be told, and it say a lot about the direction of the government under the Clinton Administration. Loeb, however, was careful not to tell the truth about Barney Frank, who was reprimanded by the House of Representatives after his relationship with a gay prostitute became known. The prostitute, Stephen Gobie, ran a prostitution ring out of Frank’s house, although Frank claimed he didn’t know anything about it. Frank also tried to fix some parking tickets for Gobie, who had been selected as Frank’s lover after running an ad in the Washington Blade promoting himself as a “hot bottom.” Loeb said nothing about Frank’s sleazy past.

If you want to know why we have security problems in this country, one reason is contained in the Loeb article. He says gay intelligence officers came out of the closet after Clinton signed an executive order in 1995 prohibiting the denial of security clearances based on sexual orientation. In other words, these gay intelligence officers had been lying about their own sexual orientation. This made them targets of blackmail.

The New York Times story about Frank’s appearance also failed to mention his unsavory past. It dwelt on Frank’s comments to the agency employees. He told the Times that CIA director George Tenet said he was actively recruiting gays...”

Did the Moslem Brotherhood and/or Hezbollah also have
access to DOD and CIA computers?

Of course they did; while at the White House,
and while they were being armed during Fast and Furious.

Idiots.”

This treason was done on a major scale during the Carter years. CIA op agents were named in liberal news papers like the NY Slimes, Compost and LA Slimes.

One fellow we knew had been with the farm since the end of WWII. He went from the NSG to the farm in one day. His cover for decades was he was with the state dept.. That cover was blown when his name appeared in our left wing media under Carter’s watch.

The agency got him out safely and most of his family. A daughter was working for real in country, and it took a while to get her out. He retired/left the farm after his CIA bio was published in a book. His expertise of setting up covert ops and recruiting locals was gone due to the publicity.

We are amazed how this guy after these events would try to blame what happened to him on Nixon/Reagan unless I was around to clarify when he was exposed and that Carter was the president. I told him, he reminded me of John Kerry lying about Nixon sending him into war, weeks before Nixon became president.

I prefer to call them brain washed instead of idiots. They are brainwashed into believing that their liberal presidents/leaders could never do anything wrong and only the evil republicans do harm to this country.

Idiots are incapable of knowing what to do. The brainwashed are not idiots as they have bought into the liberal bs.

This is almost as bad as Congressman Andrew May’s colossal blunder back in 1943. During a press conference, he revealed that many US submarines were surviving because the Japanese were setting their depth charges too shallow. Admiral Lockwood, COMSUBPAC, later estimated that this blunder cost the US ten submarines and eight hundred men.

Drudge (Report) has story as well.

Repub Leadership had better be- all over this.

Meantime, we have Obama team, still whining about 'water boarding'.

Anyone want to even contemplate, what has/is. . .being done to our people, who could not even count on their Gov to better protect them?

Not only was he a Dimmy, but he was also convicted of bribery and war profiteering in a case involving defective fuses for 4.2-inch mortars that resulted in the deaths of at least 38 US servicemen. He served nine months in federal prison for this, but later received a full pardon from Harry Truman.

I am afraid the Brotherhood was given access to our spy network details including the whole Pali operation. I also am confident that this was released to put more pressure on Israel not to strike.Pray for our friends in Israel as I am afraid they will be struck hard from both sides after they attack Iran and we may not help them until they have taken heavy losses.

They say it’s good for self esteem to lose such self respect.

Ah! The only phobics are the gays in denial who once caught doing it keep saying nothing bad was happening to them.

“In the rush for immediate results, former officers say, tradecraft has suffered.”

Translation.... The CIA is now politically correct and have hired unqualified people to fill their ranks. Thus, now we are seeing the results (dead agents) of political correctness.

Have a question for everyone which may go back to my previous paragraph. Who Pilots the UAVs outside the U.S. that are not in the U.S. military? If the answer is the CIA, then they need to learn how to shut their agents up. They are yapping it up on Facebook. I'm not joking. Freaking idiots!

“The CIA is now politically correct and have hired unqualified people to fill their ranks.”

We get what we vote for. The CIA has been politicized since the Church Commitee witch witch hunts in the aftermath of Vietnam. Even 9-11 couldn’t stop the nonsense. When Vice President Dick Cheney asked the CIA to look into reports that Saddam was trying to obtain yellowcake uranium in Africa, the CIA’s fecklessness ended in the lynching of his assistant Scooter Libby.

Bush eventually managed to assemble a team that could get useful intelligence information. But now, with the with the Dems back in charge of the Presidency, these functional professionals have been under constant threat of prosecution.

Carter cut our intelligence to the bone which resulted in the capture of Americans under his watch. Panetta is so busy working on his plan to cut and gut our Defense Dept now...that has been his dream for years. Dems think waterboarding is torture? they have no clue what is or has been done to our agents. Torture is putting it mildly. We need a STRONG Commander in Chief, a strong Sec of Defense and experienced people such as John Bolton as advisors. LTC West should be on the intelligence committee or used as a source of advice. Bachmann is on that very committee....my heart is in my throat as the visual of what our agents endured goes through my mind...butchers from hell
