Under Obama, the CIA Suffered a 'Catastrophic' Disaster
PJ media ^ | November 4, 2018 | Michael Walsh

This story, which broke on Nov. 2, got mighty little attention from the national media. I wonder why:

In 2013, hundreds of CIA officers — many working nonstop for weeks — scrambled to contain a disaster of global proportions: a compromise of the agency’s internet-based covert communications system used to interact with its informants in dark corners around the world. Teams of CIA experts worked feverishly to take down and reconfigure the websites secretly used for these communications; others managed operations to quickly spirit assets to safety and oversaw other forms of triage.

“When this was going on, it was all that mattered,” said one former intelligence community official. The situation was “catastrophic,” said another former senior intelligence official.

I’ll bet John Brennan will rush to a microphone to bash Trump over ... wait, this all happened under his watch? Oh. Never mind. He’s busy today, no calls or appointments please.

Huma likely played a major role as well.

The first instinct is to circle the wagons and deny there is an issue. The British and Americans (with the help of Poles) read German military code all throughout WWII, and the German intelligence officials refused to believe they had a problem.

The German Navy suspected there was an issue and modified their code machines, and it worked for a while, but was not successful for very long once the Allies figured out what they had done. It was a disaster of epic proportions for the Germans, and looking back the blind acceptance of hundreds of ‘coincidences’ seems stupid beyond belief.

But, the failures continue even today.

It’s not merely a coincidence that the time period in which the CIA suffered these setbacks is contemporaneous with Snowden springing forth from the bowels of the CIA to inflict damage to the NSA (NSA being operated by the military). The war between the deep state and patriots in the military was already underway.

It’d be interesting to track all the sneak attacks on our troops by the Fraud’s terrorist BFF’s during this time period.

I watched a TV show recently that told of a Brit who was fundamental in code breaking after the Enigma was captured.

He developed a technique called Traffic Analysis to place all the radio signals in context and derive intelligence there from. His work remained secret for a long time, even after the divulgence of the enigma posession. The technique is fundamental to the intelligence business today. It is still oficially secret.

Obama being commander in chief commanded the resources and tecnique to be used against his domestic enemies, namely Donald Trump. We have not yet leaned of the others that we can be certain who were surveiled...... all of the Republican candidates at a minimum

Not exactly secret!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_analysis

and marketing analysts used an advanced version (with AI - Machine & Deep Learning algorithms) today. Its really a subset of social network analysis

We already saw from his healthcare law that Obama didn’t know how to run a website.
