Botched CIA Communications System Helped Blow Cover of Chinese Agents
Foreign Policy ^ | August 18, 2018 | Zach Dorfman

Posted on 09/03/2018 12:48:08 PM PDT by Behind the Blue Wall

"It was considered one of the CIA’s worst failures in decades: Over a two-year period starting in late 2010, Chinese authorities systematically dismantled the agency’s network of agents across the country, executing dozens of suspected U.S. spies. But since then, a question has loomed over the entire debacle.

How were the Chinese able to roll up the network?

Now, nearly eight years later, it appears that the agency botched the communication system it used to interact with its sources, according to five current and former intelligence officials. The CIA had imported the system from its Middle East operations, where the online environment was considerably less hazardous, and apparently underestimated China’s ability to penetrate it."

A few weeks old, not sure if it was posted here before. But you don't have to connect very many dots from "Hillary's emails were hacked by China" to "our covert online communications network in China was compromised". I know, I know, just add another 30+ dead bodies, however many felonies and yet more diminution of America to Hillary's account, but I wonder whether the lengths to which Brennan, et. al. seem willing to go to bring down Trump might be at least in part based on their attempts to cover up this particular colossal screw-up? It's also interesting how quiet this issue has been kept. China's not really a small, insignificant country, especially as it relates to espionage and Trump. Is this where this war between Trump and the Deep State is headed, with the dozens of dead bodies and priceless state secrets lost to the Chinese because of Hillary's depravity being placed front and center in the political debate?

It was not “botched” communications.

It was deliberate treason.

It happened because of Hillary, and there's no credible question about it. This ridiculous, reprehensible cover story is just some meme-building to keep her from hanging when the indictments start to fly. Thanks Behind the Blue Wall.

Having, in realtime, for years, every single email to and from the United States Secretary of State might have had something to do with it.

Every. Single. Email.

To and from the US Secretary of State. The defacfo leader of CIA policy and Operations.

For years.

Just a hunch.

The problem is not Hillary. It is not even Barak Obama, who knew all about her server, and encouraged it and others like it in his administration.

The problem is the people who would vote for such people. And the fact that there are scores of millions of them.

It didn’t take long for the cover story to come out. There was no need to put this story out except to cover Hillary and the deaths of the agents. Especially the timing involved.

Yeah, just a cover story/whitewash for the treason by Mz Clinton.
Her acts and omissions, defended by lies, were no accidents.
And the Comsec damage incalculable.
To explain why you, Revolutionary, are right would take a volume of deep math.
But the Clinton Apologists will never be convinced.

It’s not much of a surprise to see this info coming out at the same time as news of China’s “real time” link to Hillary’s email server.

What a disaster those geniuses - the Clinton’s and Obama - were.

It was deliberate treason.

Partner, now we know it was the American Hating Piece of Work Obama and Miss Hillary doing their best work in destroying the U.S.A.

"Why Miss Hillary is not wearing an Orange Jump Suit with handcuffs and ankle cuffs with a ball and chain is beyond my pay grade."
