Personally, I believe our intelligence community consisting of 16 publicly acknowledged agencies received a boon in the form of post 9/11/2001 which was mainly focused on terrorism throughout the Bush years.
Unfortunately, this same community came under the command of Team Obama in 2009 and drastically departed its mission and activities since then.
I actually welcome these revelations and I hope they continue because we are not a nation of revenge and internal coercion as has been evidenced by Obama's manipulation of the IRS, State Department, et al, nor should be externally.
Until this government actually starts using valid intelligence information to create some substantive public good, like actually preventing some terrorist act instead of lying about it, then I hope worldwide attention is brought to this President's activities that are only focused nefarious intention.
I appreciate your viewpoint and hope you’re correct.
