Dont say I didnt tell you so. Here it is Sept, 9th, and still no arrest.
I dont think most people are aware of how complex and intertwined the intelligence community really is. How much time goes into making these
individuals, and the danger that some of them face on a daily basis. Before we make a brash decision and pull the plug on these guys, lets let
process do its thing.
We can all armchair what we do and dont know to a degree just as I do. But in all honesty, I dont think the CIA or the FBI are pulling potential
terrorists out of a grab bag. Lets get real. As far as framining someone goes, thats a whole different deal. Not being able to make a case against
somone and then making a false case against them to catch them is, and should be illegal.
I hope, as we all do, there is a degree of morality and ethics to each and every person empowerd in altering the path on peoples lives in the name of
public safety and freedom. Should that person, or persons operate in a capacity that is less then noble or in maliciously creating havoc in the world
for personal or party gain, then those agents and or operatives should be removed.
In the case of the CIA and italy, they are attmepting to track down a terrorist. I cant begrudge them for that. Its my trust that they be held to a
higher standard internally. Its my fear, that they use their power for politcal gain. Its my hope, that the truth and moraly upright be done and that
the agency can be left intact in being effective without politial intervention, in protecting and detecting, potential threats to US citizens and
Its in closing, with the last line above, the I realize, that the " interests " is a broad term. It has been said that Government is merely a shadow
of business, and its unfortunate, but our Government is all about business now days.
