Definitely something to consider. I'm still leaning towards the "young guys want to pretend they're spooks" argument.
In the midst of two wars and the fight against Al Qaeda, the CIA is offering operatives a chance to peddle their expertise to private companies on the side — a policy that gives financial firms and hedge funds access to the nation’s top-level intelligence talent, POLITICO has learned.
In one case, these active-duty officers moonlighted at a hedge-fund consulting firm that wanted to tap their expertise in “deception detection,” the highly specialized art of telling when executives may be lying based on clues in a conversation.

There may be more to the story of the break-in at Senator Mary Landrieu’s office than what we were first told. Allegedly some of the person’s arrested in the break-in were trained by the CIA and Israel.
SENATE BURGLARY: CIA DOMESTIC BLACK-OP TEAM ARRESTED
Last week’s break-in at Senator Mary Landrieu’s office in the New Orleans Federal Building was more than it seemed, much more. All of the 4 arrested had been trained by the CIA and, possibly, Israel. One arrested, Stan Dai, is listed as an Operations Officer of the Department of Defense Irregular Warfare Program and a known expert and lecturer on, not only surveillance but explosives training, assassinations and “false flag operations.” If you wanted a plane to crash, an enemy to get sick and die or a building to blow up, Dai would be the man to know how to make it happen. Problem is, his skills were being used as part of a criminal conspiracy inside the United States against members of our own government.
Original reports on the “break-in” were also wrong. One of those arrested was found blocks away with a covert receiver, managing the office bugs. The man in the car is identified as Stan Dai, Operations Officer for the Department of Defense Irregular Warfare Program:
“one of the four was arrested with a listening device in a car blocks from the senator’s offices.” The FBI’s affidavit noted that Flanagan and Basel were in the building with O’Keefe, and a federal law enforcement official confirmed to AP that Dai was the one in the car.”
What is not initially known is whether this was the first attempt or, as is much more likely, an additional incursion to plant new bugs as the ones in place were missing key conversations. Also, it is not known how many “black ops” crews are being run by the CIA inside the United States in violation of their charter or if their operations are being limited to spying on Democratic lawmakers or if operations of a more threatening nature have been performed but remain undiscovered.
Additionally, as this was a covert op against US government investigations of, not only terrorism and terrorism funding but major financial crimes against the United States, it is unclear who the recipient of the “product,” an intelligence industry term for “output” or information put up for “distribution” might be. Potential buyers could be the Republican Party, Israel, Turkey, India, Russia, China, Venezuela, North Korea or financial institutions involved in massive money laundering schemes being investigated by the Senate’s Committee on Homeland Security of which Senator Landireu is a member.
They had a guy who was an expert in “false flag operations” involved.
Looks like there may be more to this break-in than meets the eye.

Here's Duff's record. The Warren Commission is a pack of lies. The Iran-Contra hearings were a pack of lies and coverups. The 9/11 Commission was lied to by everyone, particularly the CIA and FBI. Osama bin Laden died at Tora Bora on December 13, 2001 and was buried by 30 of his followers, 6 of whom still survive and can testify to his death. All bin Laden tapes issued since that time are the fabricated work of the Mossad. The FBI doesn't list bin Laden as a suspect in the 9/11 attacks. NW Flight 253 underwear bomber Abdulmutallab has connections to the CIA and Mossad, and the bin Laden tapes claiming Al Qaeda's connection to Abdulmutallab are another Mossad fabrication.
Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world. www.fbi.gov...
