Here is some FOIA info that follows a series of "misconduct", and spans from events in 2006 through this year.

Just came across the source site, and havn't done too much looking through it yet, but figured a few other ATSers may find it of interest. So, my compulsion to share strikes again.

FOIA Releases
EFF filed suit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and a half-dozen other federal agencies involved in intelligence gathering, demanding the immediate release of reports about potential misconduct.

This does not surprise me in the least, ADVISOR.

This is because of the paranoia within Government agencies.

They believe if they are caught with their pants down they might be spanked.

As they rightfully should if they are up to nothing but trouble.

Notice not one individual who screwd up on 9/11 got fired.

Yet those who tried to show evidence were silenced?

Odd that, that those who actually tried to do their jobs were censured.

Yet those who did not are usually promoted.

That is because of the Groupthink mentality.

Quote from : Wikipedia : Groupthink

Groupthink is a type of thought within a deeply cohesive in-group whose members try to minimize conflict and reach consensus without critically testing, analyzing, and evaluating ideas.

As defined by Janis, 1972 “A mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' strivings for unanimity override their motivation to realistically appraise alternative courses of action”.

Individual creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking are lost in the pursuit of group cohesiveness, as are the advantages of reasonable balance in choice and thought that might normally be obtained by making decisions as a group.

During groupthink, members of the group avoid promoting viewpoints outside the comfort zone of consensus thinking.

A variety of motives for this may exist such as a desire to avoid being seen as foolish, or a desire to avoid embarrassing or angering other members of the group.

Groupthink may cause groups to make hasty, irrational decisions, where individual doubts are set aside, for fear of upsetting the group’s balance.

The term is frequently used pejoratively, in hindsight.

Additional it is difficult to assess the quality of decision making in terms of outcomes all the time, but one can almost always evaluate the quality of the decision-making process.

Basically, anything or anyone who rocks the boat, is a threat.

Even if they are correct.

Because people in Government are never held accountable for their actions.

A perfect example is a former female F.B.I. Agent.
