I entered on duty with the CIA in September 1985. I spent a year in the Career Trainee Program and then, in September 1986, took up my work as the lone Honduran analyst in the Central American Branch. That was a hot position that put me in the frontline of one of the top foreign policy priorities at the time of the Reagan Administration–the Central American Wars and Soviet interference in Nicaragua. When I write, “hot position,” I mean that I was writing two to three times a week for the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) and the National Intelligence Daily (NID).
I had a front-row seat to watch the struggle to present intelligence that cut against the grain of the political priorities of the Reagan Administration. I recall vividly sitting in a “Warning Meeting” that was chaired by the National Intelligence Officer (NIO) for Latin America. At one point during my briefing I referred to the Contras who were based in the Salient in southern Honduras. The NIO interrupted and ordered me to refer to them as “the Nicaraguan Democrat Resistance.” Me being me responded, “But the President calls them the Contras.” The NIO responded, “Yes, but he’s the President.”
When you start dictating politically correct language to an intelligence analyst you are on the threshold of Orwell’s 1984. I count myself fortunate to have worked at the CIA when it still had some shred of integrity intact. My experience was not the first time that a political agenda intruded on the intelligence process. Cuba in the 1960s and the Vietnam War preceded me as other dark examples of trying to cook the intelligence to match White House priorities.
Now we have this ridiculous recruiting video featuring the new generation of CIA officers:
The CIA has released its recruitment video that features an “intersectional” and “cisgender” Latina mother who says that her employment was not a slip through the cracks and wants to make it known she is “educated, qualified and competent.”
Instead of committing to serve America, this new generation is self-serving and dysfunctional. Instead of weeding out mentally disturbed individuals, the new model “cisgender millenial” seemingly brags about her mental illness-i.e. anxiety disorder. Yep, that is the kind of person a Russian or Chinese target for recruitment by the CIA wants to entrust their life to. Remember, the job of a CIA officer doing human intelligence is to convince foreigners to commit treason against their countries to provide the United States with information that cannot be obtained any other way.
And when you are working in a foreign country you have to fit in with the foreign culture. How do you think Miss Cisgender would do in Pakistan trying to recruit a member of Pakistan’s Intelligence Service to
