What The CIA Is Not Doing

Published by under All General Discussions

What is the CIA not doing while it is spending all its time making partisan media leaks and tipping off the enemy? Good questions from Varifrank: 4. How many “dots” are not being “connected” because half of the CIA is sitting in its cubicles frothing at the mouth in hatred over the words “President Bush”. […]

Mary And Valerie And Joe

Ace of Spades had posted in the idea Mary McCarthy might have sent Joe to Niger (link busted right now). In 2002 I do not believe McCarthy was in a position to send Joe to Niger. In 2003 she may have been in a position to deal with the referal from the CIA to DoJ […]

Kerry The Idiot

John Kerry is the clumsiest, most foibled politician I have ever seen.  How he keeps getting elected is beyond me.  On the day President Bush announces a ground breaking event of historic interest in Iraq, Kerry is giving a speech on why we should surrender, and why it is not such a terrible idea. Bush […]

NY Times Runs McCarthy Defense

I guess, if Mary McCarthy is a source for the NSA story investigation, the NY Times would best be served by trying to come to her defense in case she implicates them. And so they do: On Thursday, the C.I.A. fired Ms. McCarthy, 61, accusing her of leaking information to reporters about overseas prisons operated […]

Mary McCarthy Plame Source For Knight Ridder?

One story in the Plame Game that always tantalized me was the Knight Ridder story that came out June 12, 2003. It is one of the first three stories (the other two being the Kristof and Pincus articles) that dealt with the Joe Wilson story. No one really discusses this story much anymore, but it […]

‘The’ Source On Mary McCarthy

The source on Mary McCarthy’s career is definitely Spook86 at In From The Cold. You’ll note that many media accounts describe the leaker as an “analyst,” suggesting that she was, at best, a mid-level staffer. That was hardly the case; few analysts make the jump from a regional desk at Langley to the White House. […]

Mac Ranger On Mary McCarthy

Mac Ranger has inside sources which provide a lot of insight into what is happening. Don’t miss his latest post – it is a big one. A tease or two seems to be in order: …Mary’s discovery definitely came as a part of a tip, most likely on the promise of immunity, which I find […]

Al Qaeda Agent/Spy Caught In US

Atlas Shrugs has the story of an Al Qaeda agent or spy caught in the US, supposedly planning to take out the US Global Positioning System (GPS). That is one tough target for a group like this. Still, one wonders if NSA leads tipped off the authorities that this person was heading to the US.

Left Wing Jumps To McCarthy’s Defense

*** update at end: McCarthy was Larry Johnson’s Boss *** In a sign that is surely not good for Mary McCarthy, the far left is coming to her defense to leak secrets and calling for the serious, professionals at CIA to be censured: Robert David STEELE Vivas, a career intelligence officer who went on to […]

The Leak Investigation Is Huge

The Washington Post confirms my suspicions on how Mary McCarthy was detected through a series of polygraph tests (not the ‘gotcha’ single round you would see in a sting). CIA officials said the career intelligence officer failed more than one polygraph test and acknowledged unauthorized contacts with reporters. The “officer knowingly and willfully shared classified […]
