The CIA's communications suffered a Catastrophic compromise. It started in Iran. It lasted throughout Obama's Second Term.… via @YahooNews
The Security Breach Compromised the CIA's Worldwide Communications Network, and Extended to every corner of the US Intelligence apparatus - Multiple Intel Agencies. Congressional Intel Committees, Independent Contractors and Watchdog Groups.
The breach originated Iran, and despite numerous warnings, remained unrepaired for years. More than 24 CIA agents Died in China as a Result.
The effects of this Breach will last for years. Many people were killed.
The system was used beyond it's original mission, and it was not designed to safely handle the worldwide network it was being used for. Despite the warnings, the CIA Directorate of Science Technology insisted the system was "impenetrable."
As a result of the breach, Iran identified 30 US Spies and Executed Some.
The security breach hampered the CIA's ability to collect intelligence at a time when the Iran was expanded its nuclear program.
A Lack of Proper Vetting led to the Iranians recruiting a rogue CIA agent they used as a double agent. From there they breached the worldwide communications system.
China and Iran are believed to have shared information they obtained from the CIA breach. They eventually shared this information with the Russians, All three countries increased their hacking activity against the US shortly thereafter.
In 2008, a contractor named John Reidy reported the catastrophic communications breach. He was eventually fired and his warnings were ignored. He believes he was retaliated against. In 2010, he found out the breach he warned about had occurred.
At the time Reidy reported the breach, 70 percent of the CIA's network was affected. But his warning were ignored for several years, until more than 24 agents were killed in China, and more in Iran.
“This is one of the most catastrophic intelligence failures since Sept. 11,” he said. “And the CIA punished the person who brought the problem to light."

Can you imagine the different outcome if the CIA had heeded the warnings instead of going after him?
One of the central concerns among those familiar with the scope of the breakdown is the institutions responsible for it were never held accountable.
The failure to hold the persons responsible for the largest Security Breach since 911 will only lead to corruption and increased espionage against the United States. The practice of severe retaliation against whistleblowers will prevent others from coming forward.
