Of course, since the head of the CIA is also the chair of the NYSE, it makes perfect sense that its employees would be engaged in this kind of conduct.
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.
Think there might be something shady going on with the CIA given that good ole Leon is in charge?
Heavens no! Our CIA would never be engaged in financial fraud or corporate blackmail!
The article goes on to give some goodie-two-shoes examples of how allowing CIA operatives to moonlight outside the agency provides benefits to the private sector, but they also hint at the opaqueness of the policy.
There is much about the policy that is unclear, including how many officers have availed themselves of it, how long it has been in place and what types of outside employment have been allowed. The CIA declined to provide additional details.
The CIA is filled with people who professionally lie and detect lying for a living. They do nothing but lie. These people need to be kept on a tight leash.
The CIA actually operates its own businesses for revenue generation. How do you think the CIA funds all of its massive black operations? They get that cash by laundering drug money and through financial fraud. All that cash is off the books. Nothing can be traced back to them. They operate with impunity.
The very fact that the former and current heads of the CIA have all had ties to Wall Street is HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE. This is a criminal organization that needs to be shut down.
