It boggles my mind that most of you don't seem to allow the possibility that some spooks are friendly and on our side

Okay, let me throw some reason out here into the swirl of chaos you've stirred up.
I am a US Army Counterintelligence Special Agent.
I can prove that to you offline but not on here.
Under Executive Order 12333, we are prohibited from "spying" on US citizens or collecting information on you for any reason without your knowledge. The only time it becomes acceptable is when there is an official investigation underway on someone under suspicion of espionage or a similar crime. That being said, we do not canvas entire sites looking for people to target. That would be a horrible waste of time and resources for any government agency. Believe me. Especially on sites such as this.
Yeah, we like to pride ourselves as being among the best conspiracy sites on the net, but believe me - this place is barely even known by most of the agents I know - supervisors and subordinates. Since our job is extremely similar to that of the CIA, I highly doubt they're watching this place too.
No, the threads you mentioned probably shouldn't be on ATS. They should be on BTS, where they belong and you know what - they are interesting in their own right. Sometimes I see a crazy avatar someone has and wonder why they chose the particular symbology they did. Does that mean I'm an "OMFG UBER SPY FROM THE DARK MASONIC NWO GOVERNMENT"!!!?!?!??!?!? .... no. That means I was curious about an avatar.
Yeah - we (government agents) are on here.
But not because this site is important enough to merit anything more than a curious pause or a good read every once in a while.
Enjoy your paranoia.

I certainly hope intelligence agencies are sifting through these threads. If they aren't, I would be shocked and disappointed. There is always interesting knowledge to gain and threats to sniff out. I don't mind seeing some of my tax dollars at work right here on ATS.
