6. Usually if somebody says "nobody cares," what they mean is that

they themselves don't care, despite that millions of others do.

5. Breaking rules and breaking laws carry different penalties

Breaking rules in this case can lead to your security clearance being revoked while crimes may warrant jail time.

I am of the opinion if crimes were committed and there is a reasonable chance of conviction they should be prosecuted regardless of who the perp is.

9. Well revoking a clearance means shit to a person not on the job any longer

He needs to pay in some way shape or form.

8. If half of what has been posted by Q

is accurate we had a attempted coup. I'm to young to remember J. Edgar Hoover when he was running the FBI but he was know to be blackmailing some of the most powerful people in the world. Hoover could have been behind the killing of JFK and ML King or being in charged of the investigation could hide the truth.

I need to see people in cuffs and on trial.

13. That often happens in banana republics. ...

The “little people” live with a different set of laws than those in charge. Those in charge do well while the “little people” get screwed.

15. Very true.

Remember Harry Truman?

Harry Truman Writes:
Limit CIA Role
To Intelligence

By Harry S Truman
Copyright, 1963, by Harry S Truman

***snip***

For some time I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas.
I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. Some of the complications and embarrassment I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue—and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda.
With all the nonsense put out by Communist propaganda about "Yankee imperialism," "exploitive capitalism," "war-mongering," "monopolists," in their name-calling assault on the West, the last thing we needed was for the CIA to be seized upon as something akin to a subverting influence in the affairs of other people.
I well knew the first temporary director of the CIA, Adm. Souers, and the later permanent directors of the CIA, Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg and Allen Dulles. These were men of the highest character, patriotism and integrity—and I assume this is true of all those who continue in charge.
But there are now some searching questions that need to be answered. I, therefore, would like to see the CIA be restored to its original assignment as the intelligence arm of the President, and that whatever else it can properly perform in that special field—and that its operational duties be terminated or properly used elsewhere.
We have grown up as a nation, respected for our free institutions and for our ability to maintain a free and open society. There is something about the way the CIA has been functioning that is casting a shadow over our historic position and I feel that we need to correct it.
