Reads to me like the buffoons are looking for someone who will spook easy by the publishing of a clearly PR=B$ story. Why the story because they don't have a clue and they are trying to force changes in patterns of behaviour. In the world of professional paranoia those least to trust are your own comrades in invasions of privacy, keeping secret what the public should no, in damaging democracy to feed the ego and greed of a minority, is betrayal of their own society to the detriment of all. The real traitors are the ones on public display giving speeches to protect their power and to seize more.
First that empty pompous speech like we have to listen to our employees, where those idiots forget who they are working for and are all whiny about being a pack of fuck ups. Now empty news stories, yes, they are on the hunt for spies, crooks, and traitors (except they ones they know about and control to enhance their own power and ego), yes because prior to this the fuckwits were on holiday for decades hunting no one. Saudis flying jets, Israelis celebrating buildings being destroyed, terrorists with US arms and munitions, incompetent government officials incapable of maintaining secrets, mass charity fraud behind the auspices of government, corporations corruptly controlling government agencies, wars for profit, supporting enemies and betraying allies, blind as fuck (incompetence as an excuse if failing and the corruption has become pretty public) to all that but Wikileaks is the problem because they expose that.
I think they are kind of stuck, raiding a whole bunch of employees houses and harassing their families, whilst it might produce results would further cripple morale, generate thousands of resignations and further damage their recruiting capabilities. They have become fearful and incompetent in their corruption, nepotism running rife, really crap political appointees all over the place, those idiot fuckers are using tactics straight out of hollywood movies thinking they will work, instead of just making them look like incompetent morons. Next up will be grabbing agents and contractors at random and interrogating them, enhanced interrogation, third world style, to match the third world style fools running the US.
