#2 If you've got a foreign country looking to put you in jail, and the U.S. isn't giving you up, DON'T LEAVE THE U.S.!

#3 If Obama doesnt slap this down in a hurry, then the CIA and the political Obama-asskissing worms at the top might be in big trouble - because the rank and file will not sit still for being sold out. ANd trust me, no matter how they spin it, those that do the work will see it as just that - a sell out by the very men they leaked to put into office.

More proof of my contention that the CIA needs to be dismantled, parted out to other agencies and the military, then figuratively burned to the ground and rebuilt as a much more single purpose agency, along the lines of the OSS from which it came. ANd that also means that most of the rest of the IC needs a similar dismantling and rebuild, with some agencies diminished, some created, and some removed entirely from their current structure (Dept State's own intel for instance, needs to be fully integrated with other agencies to reduce redundancy and increase visibility of data to them and from them).

Semi-organized jottings for a future opinion piece deleted at OldSpook's request.

#4 Mods please delete everything after the second paragraph. I inadvertently hit enter, and was typing up some underdeveloped thoughts to post to the opinions section this weekend.

#5 Dunno, OS. It's all sorta Joe-like in its provacative opacity.

#7 its because I was just flowing some thoughts, rather than organizing them and looking at them critically - jsut spur of the moment brainstorming that hadnt had any weeding applied to it. I'd rather not have such stuff posted, and will next time write offline first. Oh Rantburg, where is they delete button for certain regulars?

#8 Oh Rantburg, where is they delete button for certain regulars?

They call it the Preview button, OldSpook dear, as well you know. Being as you are not only a 'certain' regular but a computer professional in your own right.

Let me suggest Sunday for the piece you are working on -- that way it will get the widest possible readership, not to mention time for pondering that is lacking even on Saturdays.

#9 yep - thats what I was writing it for, sunday. Problem is, a quick tab and leaning on the keyboard (accidentally hitting enter) can do the job well before intent enters the picture.

#10 IN other words, I need to be careful about pushing back my chair whilst my hands are still near the keyboard
