CIA finds 1 in 5 flagged job applicants hail from Hamas, Hezbollah, al Qaeda
Washington Times ^ | 9/2/13 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 09/02/2013 8:20:23 AM PDT by Nachum

An estimated one-fifth of a subset of all applicants for Central Intelligence Agency positions had significant ties to the terror groups Hamas, Hezbollah and al Qaeda, a newly released document from the Edward Snowden collection revealed Monday.

The document — released by Mr. Snowden as part of his National Security Agency intelligence dump — said the terrorist groups worked hard to infiltrate America’s top security agencies. CIA officials uncovered thousands of applicants, roughly one in five of a subset, with “significant terrorist and/or hostile intelligence connections,” the document states, as Ynet News reported.

The specifics of those ties were not revealed, but the groups most often cited as attempting to infiltrate the U.S. intelligence network were al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah.

The NSA, in response, launched investigations into 4,000 instances of suspected abnormal staff activity, Ynet News said. Those investigations included the tracking of employee keystrokes on agency computers and the recording of document downloads.

Americans want to know:

Is even ONE of the other four considered?

Makes sense, isn’t the CIA head Brennan a moslem?

Brennan, Barry, and Huma would never allow this to happen!

Let me guess -

They all had glowing letters of recommendation from Barack Obama or Eric Holder.

Don't believe it. Don't believe for a second that it took a lot of work..

In the land of PC idiocy? I'll bet Homeland has more radical Muslim employees in key positions than right wingers... Same for the CIA and FBI...

The other four were from the same place and hired. (:

The other hirees were from places like China and Russia.

And the rest, just run of the mill anti-American way leftists.

This is important information from Edward Snowden. I have mixed feelings on his actions, but the American people deserve to know this. I would like to hear some patriotic senators and Congresscritters shouting from the rooftops about this. We are living in dangerous times indeed.

No surprise when they have recruited these people into the White House.

“In other words, there are some that got through.”

Exactly. Also, if I was going to try to infiltrate an organization like this, I would inundate them with somewhat easily flagged applicants - to occupy them and give them a false sense of security in their ability to prevent infiltration - while at the same time make other attempts that were much more difficult to detect. If any of us can think of these things on a Sunday morning just sitting at the computer, you know our enemies have thought of and likely implemented such approaches.

America is in true peril with a Muslim president and an Islamic convert as Director of CIA.
God help this country.
Congress won’t.

So, one in five Muslims applying for jobs with the CIA are radical jihadists trying to infiltrate American intel apparatus?

I want that one in five translated into an actual numerical value. Exactly how many radical jihadists did the CIA detect - 10? 100? 1000? - and what did the CIA do once these murderous psychos were detected? Were they arrested? Where are they now? Name them! We have a right to know!

Did they get hired? Affirmative Action?

This story is very poorly sourced. The Washington Times only refers to “a document,” but does not quote the document, and does not specify how it became aware of the document or to whom the document was released. I was expecting a reference to The Guardian, which has been Snowden’s main conduit for releasing information, but I found no such reference. I did not see this story on Drudge, either, so I’m wondering where it came from and if it’s accurate.

Surprise? The agencies are under order to make nice with those middle eastern religion of peace people, the nice kind tolerant souls who jumped up and down for joy on 9/11.

So naturally, hordes of those nice people are trying to get into agencies where they can damage the USA the most.

Listen. The religion of peace is a violent, world-domination movement cleverly disguised as a religion. Any one who belongs to it is by reason of membership working for the overthrow of the American form of government.
