“I FEEL NO COMPASSION”
August 20, 2018
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
About the latest kerfuffle over ex-CIA Chief Brennan’s security clearance, allow me, as someone who’s been there with the highest security clearances, to clear up any confusion.
First, you get a thorough check before you get the final clearance. For Top Secret, SCI (Specially Compartmentalized Intelligence) and others, I can tell you that no one is supposed to have access to such information unless they have a LEGITIMATE NEED TO KNOW!. In short, if you are not in the intimate, small circle of decision-makers at that particular moment, you CANNOT HAVE ACCESS! Got that? Open doors to everything about what’s going on in the intelligence world is SUPPOSED to be restricted to those who have a legitimate need to know and are involved in the current operation.
Let me explain how it works in the DoD (or at least the JCS and the military commands). If you are privy to – and have an ‘assumed’ need to know – you must sign a document that you can inform only two people in your chain of command about what you are working on. And, you must acknowledge that you will be subject to a polygraph if a breach of security is detected. Got that? You are going to be found out and courts-martialed!
I had a two-star boss who I could read into what I was working on (and thus, would have less time for the regular tasks that would might be assigned to me), but I could not inform my Director (a three-star) about what I was doing. Got that? See how tightly we were controlled? And now we have this guy Brennan insisting that he retain his access to Top Secret material. I’m sorry, but I feel no compassion for his ‘plight.’
Also, please check out where Brennan — a lifetime commie — is coming from. Anybody who hated America was his kind of guy. From Castro to Ortega, to the Kremlin Chiefs – he was there for all of them. America was the problem… never them. And yet somehow Brennan was given the top spot in CIA – but only by another ‘fellow traveler,’ Barack Obama!
