CIA Recruiting Within "LGBT" Community for Spy Agency Staffing

Once considered severe security threats within the nation's intelligence service, homosexuals are now being actively recruited to join the CIA.

CIA Recruiting Within "LGBT" Community for Spy Agency Staffing


The New American
08 December 2012


Apparently the Central Intelligence Agency is looking for a new style of agent. According to a National Public Radio report, as “part of the CIA's efforts to diversify its workforce, the spy agency is reaching out to a group that once was unable to get security clearance — lesbians and gay men.”

In late November the CIA partnered with Florida's Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce for an event to network with homosexuals who may be interested in working for the agency. “This is the first time we've done a networking event of this type with any of the gay and lesbian chamber of commerces in the United States,” said Michael Barber, the CIA's LGBT Community Outreach and Liaison program manager. Barber, who made it clear that he is “straight,” emphasized that his agency is not as picky as it once was about whom it recruits, and now welcomes lesbian, gay, straight, and even transgender (LGBT) individuals for service in the spy agency.

“For many years, the CIA and other federal agencies routinely denied security clearances to gay men and women,” reported NPR, “until President Clinton signed an executive order ending the practice in 1995. Now, Barber says, the CIA even has a program for gay couples. 'We actually have LGBT employees serving overseas with their partners,' Barber said to the few dozen gathered at the networking event. 'So you can do it.'”

NPR recalled that hundreds of homosexuals were purged from the CIA ranks during the 1950s and '60s — for obvious security reasons. But as long ago as the late 1980s a select few were allowed to stay on, pioneering the way for today's wide-open compromise. Tracey Ballard, a CIA technical intelligence officer who spoke at the Miami-Dade LGBT recruiting event, recalled how she “came out” to her superiors in 1989, “knowing that the admission could cost her security clearance and her job,” reported NPR.

Shockingly, whoever was in charge let Ballard stay, so that today the CIA is rife with LGBT employees, and, as with most other federal agencies, even boasts a homosexual fraternity of some 200 members within its ranks. In addition, notes NPR, the “spy agency is one of the founding partners of Outserve, an organization that represents gay active military personnel, including those with the CIA.”

On its own website the CIA posted a press release boasting of its participation in a professional conference in November that catered to homosexuals interested in math and science careers. “For the first time in its history, the CIA served as a corporate sponsor of the oSTEM — Out in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics — recent national conference in Chicago, and led discussions in the Intelligence Careers conference track,” stated the release. “The CIA participated in the event as part of its nationwide outreach to diverse communities with mission critical talent.”

oSTEM is a “national society that promotes leadership opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and allied (LGBTQA) communities in the STEM fields,” explained the CIA release.

According to the release, Susan Gordon, the CIA's director of support, spoke to the 100 conference attendees, assuring them that “sexual orientation and gender identity have absolutely no relation to one’s ability to do the job. When you blend LGBT and STEM, you get innovation, different perspectives, connections between complex ideas, and applications that drive bottom-line business results.”

While seasoned intelligence experts would argue that such relaxing of standards by the federal intelligence agency represents a security compromise ripe for exploitation by those unfriendly to America, straight arrow CIA recruiter Michael Barber insisted to NPR that being openly homosexual “is no longer an issue for holding security clearance ... we want the best and the brightest regardless of your sexual orientation.”

As often pointed out here, this agency is packed with senior level, liberals from academia, and hasn’t been “conservative” for decades.

This is a great asset in Obama’s program to destroy America.

It must be getting harder to find people who want to work in this country than I thought it was. When the CIA is out there scrapping the bottom of the barrel, you know America is in heap big trouble.

Why not? A couple months ago the DOJ was offering hiring advantages for (I’m not kidding) INSANE DWARVES. I’m sure they would have settled for a documented pattern of simple mental instability by a l’il person.

But still. Also, almost as incredibly:

Department of State established hiring advantages at Bengazi for Arabic-speaking folks handy with an AK but also HOMOSEXUAL. With benefits for domestic partner, etc.

And willing to work for $13,000 per year.

Intentionally staffing with homos for diversity reasons may not work out so well:

Gay officials interfering with police LGBT liaison supervision, so the liaison decided to go out and rape some underage boys.

40 years ago, my Dad was among hundreds they pushed into early retirement for being “broken down WWII vets”. No “Greatest Generation” sentiment back then! Now, look at them.

In the 80’s, I thought Moynihan was certifiable when he advocated abolishing this monstrosity. But, he was right.

“This country is becoming too stupid to last much longer.”

Correct. The elections have shown that much. With people like Hank Johnson, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, etc. given gov’t ruling power along with Bammy and crew, Hollywood and the MSM in full Pravda mode, I’d say we’re seeing a sad collapse.

Not our whole country, of course. But enough to make a difference. The country will wake up too late.

Conservative principles and morals are simply incompatible with liberalism. The two cannot co-exist for long. The sooner conservatives accept this fact, and take some bold actions to save us from the destructive path of liberalism, the better. I think this eventually means some form of balkanization of regions within this country. There are just too many irreconcilable differences.

Makes sense. A piece of advice; send them to Islamic countries!

0h0m0 IS the LGBT in Chief who would not have it any other way. Under a communist regime, all agencies are tripping over each other to seek favors with the first secretary of the communist party.

I’ve been pretty sporadic with pinging lately, the horrible news has so overwhelmed me.

Thanks for reminding me about this nasty article, I will ping it out tomorrow.

Never did I think that our country would transmogrify into a full blown Muzzie/commie/racist/faggot pushing tyranny so quickly and so completely.

I only wonder if any opposition will stand up and be counted.

When I was in college, a buddy of mine interviewed with DoD and was dismissed when he confessed to having tried illegal drugs.

I briefly worked for DoD and met a woman who had tried them without endangering her ability to get a clearance.

So yes, I wondered if the standards were kept high for white men but not for others.

A little bone to pick here: Where you’ve said “stupid” I would say “decadent,” the idea being the current regime has no claim on an upright person’s loyalty.
