Apologies... I replied to this earlier - pushed the enter key and everything... and now the post doesn't exist ( throw that into the conspiracy
bandwagon! - though chances are I just had browser freeze and didn't catch it with multiple tabs open ).... Anyway, I'll try to remember what was
said in the original attempt.
Operation Chaos was more recent and more on point. However the CIA Domestic Operations Division deals with a very specific type of issue:
The main function of the domestic division, which has stations in many major U.S. cities, is to conduct voluntary debriefings of U.S. citizens
who travel overseas for work or to visit relatives, and to recruit foreign students, diplomats and businesspeople to become CIA assets when they
return to their countries. It was unclear how many CIA employees would relocate to Denver under the plan.
Although collecting information on U.S. citizens under suspicion for terrorist links is primarily an FBI function, the CIA may also collect
information on citizens under limited circumstances, according to a 1981 executive order. The exact guidelines for those operations are spelled out in
a classified document signed by the CIA director and approved by the attorney general.
Though it is feasible to ponder that the CIA might be supporting the FBI on a domestic level in the social engineering and human behavioral issues (
which forum agitators would qualify as ) - that would be somewhat akin to buying a football team and demanding that the coach hire Alex Rodriguez as
the quarterback simply because he's an apex athlete. A-Rods skill set wouldn't necessarily translate to the desired task as effectively as others
Thus the domestic infiltration of cyberspace, IMO, is still most definitely the provenance of Cybercommand and the NSA - with the NSA more than likely
acting as the data mining and data control arm ( securing the theater ) and Cybercommand acting as the "troops".
