I'm not sure if the following story has been covered already in specific reference. It isn't important. I'm not posting this to hash out the 'here
and now' immediacy of whether something happens today or not. I'm posting this because the sheer, unmitigated stupidity is enough to leave me numb.
Here is the outrage, my fellow Netizens:
Senior U.S. Official: Intercepted Al Qaeda Communications Indicate Planned Attack ‘Big,’ ‘Strategically Significant’
Now, you may have to read that a few times to really grasp the sheer unmitigated level of pure STUPID involved here. However, it's there, I assure
you. Oh, it's there in spades with bells on!!
let's look at recent history, yes? The spy systems for the United States and Great Britain have been the subject of public headlines, expose'
stories and detailed files never before seen or (in many cases) even suspected for capabilities. In recent times, we have learned the NSA not only CAN
monitor and record every communication on the Planet Earth, they *DO* in fact record and monitor them all. If they miss one or two? Well...some goober
in outer Mongolia needs to update their Telcom systems from the days of a recorded dial tone spinning up when the first line picked up for a day.
In this environment of the whole world knowing now that U.S. officials hear and see EVERYTHING that is said by way of electronic or convention
communication ...........What happens?
Oh my golly goodness... Al Qaeda just blabs over open lines that they intend a massive strategic attack! RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!! ....or take a damn
moment to realize WE JUST GOT PLAYED like a grand piano.
I don't know which pisses me off more, to be honest. The sheer gullible and foolish nature of those we trust to do something like a good job by our
nation? ...or the fact we assume and actually take for granted our enemy is SO simple minded and outright stupid, they would use precisely those
methods they KNOW the U.S. is listening to?! (That would be EVERY method short of ..well, I'll just say there are some secure ones....and they damn
sure didn't choose them here).
So enjoy the Sunday as I am sure our President is on his Birthday. Enjoy our peaceful day, knowing we moved great resources and spent ungodly sums of
money to respond to a crank who yanked our chain so hard, I swear Uncle Sams eyes rolled like a slot machine. It sure hit the jackpot too. Al Qaeda
got the JACKPOT of Propaganda victory.
All they had to do was act as patently stupid as our side believes they are.
One of these days they'll MEAN to do this and we'll be reminded ....we don't get neon signs of warning over monitored communications methods IN
ADVANCE. They may be dying to become Shaheed, but they aren't looking to be martyrs to the monument of a Darwin award. That takes American
Intelligence to achieve these days. Ask people like Ambassador Stevens. .....with a Ouija Board.
