No time like now to stand up a real, strategic counterintelligence system to root out Russian, Chinese & other penetration agents throughout our intelligence community. Strange that there's been so little interest in doing it since #Bush43 set up #ONCIX.
Ever notice how most #counterintelligence cases result in the arrests very junior people, the low-hanging fruit? Ever wonder why almost no traitors, like Ames & Hanssen, are found in more senior positions? And where some, like #Montaperto, get off with a wrist slap?
I've always wondered why, when he was @DefenseIntel director, James #Clapper protected openly pro-Castro female analysts. One of Clapper's protectees, Ana Belen Montes, would be arrested as a Cuban spy. Yet Clapper got promoted.
@DefenseIntel Clapper also purged from the #DIA those professional officers whom he considered "russophobic." These people were some of the nation's best hawks. #Clapper got them transferred out of @DefenseIntel while giving Russia's #GRU rezident a Pentagon pass.
