Sheesh. We have spies on top of spies, and likely have capabilities that are redundant to 10x. Whatever this costs, we can’t afford it!
Oh good, an even larger and more expensive government.
Officers only? Doomed to fail, except to earn promotions, ribbions, and other fancy, meaningless, chest decorations.
Just subcontract out to Google. They know just about everything about everybody already. Throw in Facebook and you’ve got it all.
The CIA is too busy spying on us.
Surround everyone with everything we’ve got!
Because that’s what we need. Spies to spy on the spies who spy on us.
“....it’s unclear how the Defense Department has been able to move around the money to afford a new agency.”
I don’t know.... Maybe the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand’s doing in DC? Maybe agencies routinely lie about their finances and regularly have more money than they know what to do with? GSA just happened to have a cool million sitting around to blow on a big ol’ Vegas PAR-TAY!
It’d sure be nice if Congress was proactive rather than reactive to the abuse of taxpayer’s dollars for once tho. You know.... Question budgetary requests for a change, rather than just shoveling money at them and then acting surprised when its abused?
Bet its already done.
Military operators are apparently tired of dealing with CIA stuffed suits, and are setting up their own competing shop.
We already have 77 armed federal law enforcement and intelligence gathering agencies, what’s one more.
The “new spy agency” is off to a ridiculous start. They’ll publish names of agents next. Happy spying!
When they point the blame now, they’ll have to take off boots and socks to point some toes also.
Aside from the sheep-dipped folks, CIA is ridden with liberal, beard-stroking liberal idiots.
Roll all the sheep-dipped operators into this new monstrosity, and then fire ALL the CIA would-be-soc profs remaining —they can be parking-lot attendants, or something.
Or better yet, axe this new idea and just fire all the non-military derived folks from CIA and keep it so that they actually DO (good) stuff.
