American government black box
Psyops at work - Weird story is trouble symptom
According to the story “Roger” is a shadowy figure with lots of experience and skill in tracking terrorists. His identity is secret even as he heads a counterterrorism operation at the CIA.
Now, suddenly, from out of the shroud, this story appears in the Washington Post. Somebody wants “Roger” to move along, and I suspect that it is David Petraeus.
In the WP description, one would wonder what kind of department would want to hire and keep a guy like “Roger,” not that he didn’t do his job. But, if you think about the best candidates among the universe of possibilities, is this the best they have?
Once they let him out of the box, better keep an eye on him, and they will.
If you read the whole story that I did not post here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/at-cia-a-convert-to-islam-leads-the-terrorism-hunt/2012/03/23/gIQA2mSqYS_story.html?wpisrc=nl_headlines , you may discover an unlikeable character residing in a dark spot government.
“At CIA, a convert to Islam leads the terrorism hunt
By Greg Miller, Published: March 24
For every cloud of smoke that follows a CIA drone strike in Pakistan, dozens of smaller plumes can be traced to a gaunt figure standing in a courtyard near the center of the agency’s Langley campus in Virginia.
The man with the nicotine habit is in his late 50s, with stubble on his face and the dark-suited wardrobe of an undertaker. As chief of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center for the past six years, he has functioned in a funereal capacity for al-Qaeda.
Roger, which is the first name of his cover identity, may be the most consequential but least visible national security official in Washington — the principal architect of the CIA’s drone campaign and the leader of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. In many ways, he has also been the driving force of theObama administration’s embrace of targeted killing as a centerpiece of its counterterrorism efforts.”
