In partial response to Mr. Farmer, there is very little leakage of
classified material in the US compared to the vast amount of
material safely kept from the American people. Moreover, the
most damaging leaks have been by those most trusted to keep
secrets, more often than not intelligence personnel.
It is a carnard that there is huge leakage, prated only to divert
attention from obsessive overclassification. Secret keeping has
become a disease in the US creating fear and paranois in those
who would be strenthened and enlightened by information now
withheld -- not a few of who are ensnared in secret, compartmented
traps, not to say mind traps.
However, you are commended for speaking in the fashion conspiracy
theorists, including spies who are forever countering fantasms
with greater fantasms, one suspects these two gangs are in cahoots:
by continually raising near-mad speculations they heighten expectations
of consumers to believe the truth is out there, out there in the bountiful
Neither conspiracy theorists nor spies have an interest in truth, too
mundane, too non-fictional, too hard to discover. Like the DoD IG
handled Able Danger, best to propound a vacuous report ridiculing
those investigated and dismissed. That is a long-lived technique of
dispensers of conventional wisdom, now grown habitual in national
security affairs, aiming to narcotize by the well-known and unquestioned
repetition of comforting platitudes and reminders of terrible punishment
Whether national security and concomitant blind faith in secrecy is
now a full-blown cult, an advanced religion of avarice or a demonism
out to destroy democracy remains to be examined but not by those
most rewarded by its perpetuation.
Thus, opinionated generalizations in return, facts sanitized.
