CIA Makes Happy Faces While Droning Natives
Advertisements [?]
unhappycamper note: Since the Pentagon has requested that I only post one paragraph from articles on Army Times, and Airforce Times, Ive decided to give yall an unhappycamper summary of the article and a link to the OP. To keep in that same (new) tradition, I will also do the same for for articles on Navy Times, Marine Corps Times, stripes.com and military.com.

To read the article in the military's own words, you will need to click the link.

I didn't realize that the Pentagon/MIC could restrict my First Amendment rights as well as morph the Copyright Act of 1976, 17 U.S.C. 107 with zero, zip, nada Congressional approval. (NOTE: I am going to revise the preceding sentence.) It sure is beginning to smell like fascism.

unhappycamper summary of this article: Since its inception in 1947, the CIA had gotten exactly one thing correct. One. Fricking. Thing.





Panetta is working to protect the CIA's budget at a time when Congress is looking around for cuts, and to guard the CIA's role as the lead agency in the war on terror. Panetta also hopes to boost the morale of a staff that's been criticized and even prosecuted for its practices, including its handling of terror suspects who have been whisked away to "black sites," or secret prisons, and sometimes waterboarded.
