What is the point? We, as a country, spend millions of dollars each year on the FBI, CIA, NSA and every other configuration of 3 letter agencies, to operate and protect the military, national defense, congressional activates and even the original formula for Coke and the Colonel’s chicken, yet the other agency BMFM (Big Mouth for Money), also known as the ‘media’, reveals the secrets, almost before the ink is dry on the original report.
Guglielmo Marconi said; “The coming of the wireless era will make war impossible, because it will make war ridiculous”. Maybe he was right! If the ‘leaks for money’ mob, on one side, continue to leak secrets to the other side, why would we need to fight…. or more to the point – how could we fight and expect a successful conclusion to any battle.
Recently the results of a very high level security briefing for the POTUS and POTUS elect, was leaked to the media, two hours – TWO HOURS – after the top-secret briefing! (yelling intended). The Spook Agencies might as well have held a press conference!
Enough is enough; we have two choices. Lower the ‘cone of silence’ (not everyone knows what that is) or open it totally up so that we and our potential enemies know what we know. How could it mess us up any more than it is now?
Open it up so we know exactly which government officials are having affairs with which interns…. who is bribing who, what weapons do we have and what do they have, why did we fake the moon landing and why are their alien scientists working in Area 51?
Didn’t we learn from the toy company Mattel that military secrets went away a long time ago?
Pogo was correct: “we have met the enemy and he is us”.
