~ It’s about people and those who live in glass houses and with the new Pro-Scan scanners we all do.
So No! This post is not so much about the TSA and about a government that wants to get down to the skinny and underneath all the briefs and wants to use technology (and idle hands) to fact-check what is often never in plain sight. So where ever you are and whatever you are doing you should remember that every word shared with a U.S. government operative is for the open press; it’s transparent, one day your every word (every verb) may reverberate across the world.
The word is out. The U.S. government is incapable of keeping a secret (secret). It is what you get when you try to get those who are not spies to spy. Thanks Hillary, thanks Bill – you showed us how.
Hillary Clinton always thought of herself as an amateur sleuth. She snuck around looking for “Bill” somewhere, she would find him, but failed too to look under his desk. That’s the difference between the amateurs and the professionals. The one is trained, the other is not. It’s like most Americans, watch one episode of “I Spy” or the latest new movie starring “James Bond” and bingo-bango-bongo you (one) thinks that they are a spy or wants to be a spy and all that happens is the secrets start leaking out.
“So, I hear James Bond is good in bed,” are you? “Sure,” comes the answer, “I have the videos to show you,”. Never mind that the woman that you are pictured with was not your wife, not even the hooker that lives next door. It’s a lot like “Sex, lies, and video tape“, this reading about the updated Wikipedia which is Wikileaks in real time as it tells of the hidden times of real neighbors, friends, and enemies – not to mention accusations of “Pussy Galore”.
So are all the diplomats really spies as the Russians and North Koreans have always said? Was Henry Kissinger always totally wrong or totally naive when he built a career at Harvard saying that “Diplomacy” was the key – in reality diplomacy was just another word for spying, for lying about who you are and what you represent. All those missing credit card slips for when you took an American diplomatic friend out to dinner – they’re in the U.S. Embassy vault; you never “lost” that slip at all, it was stolen by your dinner mate, who was not a “mate” but just a common spy, and “no” he/she was not that good in bed.
So, how many governments around the world will fall before this is over? Maybe all of them. Sleeping with America, shacking up with the U.S.A., spilling out your guts about whiskey – women – men – even children and booze; it makes you sick when it all hangs out, not a little like Homeland Security and feeling up the crotch because “physically it’s necessary for security as you know”.
So, did you feel the bomb that went off yesterday? It shattered glass all over America and around the world and every glass-house American Embassy has fallen as the inhabitants and habituatees habituated to bad habits have been blown to bits or at least have bitten the very dust. Another one bites the dust.
Do you think? Do you think that Homeland Security would be better off scanning the U.S. Embassy cable traffic than the genitalia of U.S. citizens to see what is what and where? Not a chance. The idea is not to make the U.S. or U.S. interests secure, it is transparency; and the real war has started, and it is the government now that must strip, keep stripping, strip again and again until every surface and every cavity and every body cavity is laid bare. Remember, it was TSA that taught us how, it is TSA that has trained us regarding what to expect. And yes. everyone lives in glass houses now.
Good luck Hillary in sorting everything out. I think Obama finally got you (and Bill). He’s even. Hillary, you have no place in history, except for being just another stooge – communist or otherwise, just a “stand by my man” stooge. But, it was Obama that appointed you; maybe he too can disappoint you. In the State Department there is a pressing need for a lot of firing; do it now!
Yes. Every diplomat will always be a political appointee and a spy. That glass house has been forever exploded. If you are an American ambassador you are a spy, you cavort with spies, you get down and dirty like all the other spies. Your embassy is a den of spies. North Korea was always right; they learned their lessons a long time ago; like a good and worthy adversary they took a lesson from the U.S. and that’s not why they are better than us (?) – yes, they are just like us.
So let’s keep all the exposure, stripping down, transparency going and growing. We need this exercise. It’s parity for all. Mark my words, corporations will be next. You’ve asked to see mine, “I want to see yours”. Then we will see if there really is a difference. The game is on!
