While we were captured by the visuals of the WW II memorial shut down, a much more evil and sinister process was underway at our intelligence agencies. One can only conclude that the furloughing of a majority of those who dedicate their lives to protecting us was an intentional act to make us less secure. If one accepts this premise, then one has to conclude that any attack would have been well received and could have been used for political purposes. In other words, we are expendable for the good of the Obama agenda. One also has to wonder how much intelligence was lost, never to be able to be recaptured. Here we go. Our man Clapper.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted that furloughing “nearly three-quarters of the workers at the government’s intelligence agencies” due to the shutdown “put the United States at greater risk of terror attacks.”
According to McClathcyDC, “lawmakers, former intelligence officials and national security experts say they were shocked that the administration furloughed the bulk of federal workers at 16 intelligence agencies, many of them tasked with the most important job in government: safeguarding lives.”
It’s difficult for me to understand,” said Leon Panetta, who served as the director of the CIA and the secretary of defense under President Barack Obama. “People that are involved in our intelligence are critical. You can’t possibly put 70 percent on furlough and not harm national security.”
For those who want to have a recap of the purpose of our man Clapper, an interview with humor. ABC interview : The Director of National Intelligence lacks some “intelligence”… (I mean “intel”, of course…) Diane Sawyer is confused.
