More Info On Spying In America Wednesday, December 21, 2005

Cynicus posted this as part of the discussion on the previous post but I think it is worthy of it's own post. It gives a little background into the history of Spying in the U.S.:

To defeat the giant, use his strength against him. To overcome the larger opponent, use the principles of judo.

What we need to do is to start all these spy agencies - all desperate for success, which means BUDGET - to start spying on each other.

It worked in the 1950's & to some extent the 60's - when records were declassified in the 1990's, it was found that the majority percentage of Communist groups the FBI was watching consisted of undercover FBI agents. In fact, there were groups that consisted ENTIRELY of undercover FBI agents. We may safely anticipate the CIFA, DIA, FBI, CIA, NSA, FEMA, NSAIDS, AWOL, FUBAR, ETC. to end up in little circle-jerks reporting on each other.

(Note to history majors: Elizabeth I of England invented the 'modern' spy service - basically Francis Walsingham and Dr. John Dee created what would be the British Secret Service. And those early agents were notorious for reporting on each other, both from incompetence and from the fact that the ppl who use spies and run spies have paranoia as a feature, not a bug.)

All these new agencies with spy missions and 'auth-or-i-tah'.... betcha the process has already started.
