New CIA Task force---WTF


The CIA has launched a new task force to study the damage from leaked US diplomatic cables. Wikileaks Task Force. That's right, WTF.

You can't say the CIA doesn't have a sense of humor.

The OSS was a worthy enemy... they were instrumental in the logistics of guerilla warfare in China, and in Korea... long ago... CIA which came after CIG, which itself came after IRIS... all along this process, the operational value of OSS was progressivly overwhelmed by bureaucrats...

IMHO OSS would never have allowed something like 9/11 to happen...

Soon, we will see a task force to monitor task forces. It'll be called CIA Task Force CI.
