#whelan is potentially what I was: an asset or source being run by a US intel agency. He is likely not a CIA officer. It shows how dangerous this work is and how key it is to providing actionable intelligence.
This is a game the USG plays, and it uses people who are outside its sphere to do things they can’t physically or legally do. This is exactly what I did.
This is where the “real” spying happens. It’s dangerous and the risks are extraordinarily high.
Part of the propaganda is to make Whelan seem like a schmuck or a bafoon. It’s all a way of downplaying the role of people like him and Whelan. In the end human assets are the Crown Jewels of any intel service.
