Since 9-11 the CIA has gone through 4 Directors and are now on Number 5 Mr Leon Panetta and I hear, it's been reported that he is threatening to QUIT. Anyone find this strange? Since 9-11 nobody seems to want to do this job, I wonder why that is.
As for Panetta quitting the White House claims that it's not true.
The White House is denying a report that CIA Director Leon Panetta threatened to quit.
ABCNews.com on Monday cited reports that Panetta, frustrated by several administration actions and discussions with regard to the CIA, got in a "profanity-laced screaming match" with a senior staff member last month and has also threatened to leave. Panetta reportedly was upset over potential plans to open an investigation into alleged CIA abuse of terror suspects.
ABCNews.com also reported that White House staff are discussing a broader potential shake-up of national security officials.
Anyway it seems to be quit the high stress level position these days.

I've not done much on the Blackwater psyop but it seems that some on line sites are just now figuring out what private security sources are really all about. You had to be blind not to see this one coming. They raised how much ( DRUG MONEY ) I mean venture capital when they founded Blackwater Come on people lets open our eyes here.
Blackwater mercenaries used for CIA renditions
By Patrick Martin

The German news magazine Der Spiegel announced Saturday that it has obtained evidence that the security firm formerly known as Blackwater Associates was hired by the CIA to transport prisoners from Guantánamo Bay to secret prisons in Central Asia where they could be tortured.
US press reports late last week revealed that Blackwater had CIA contracts to carry out “targeted killings”—assassinations—and to load and service the missiles used by CIA officers to conduct assassination strikes against targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The report in Der Spiegel adds to the litany of crimes committed by Blackwater, which was renamed Xe after five of its operatives were charged with mass murder in the slaughter of 17 Iraqi civilians on September 17, 2007 in a Baghdad square.
The CIA needs this known as public knowledge about like it needs another hole in it's head. Why? Because if you think that Blackwater was the first outside entity used by the CIA for dirty work then you have a screw loose.

Here is how these spooks make some coin in the Name of National Security right under the noses of people who think that they are really concerned with protecting American Citizens. It's phucking laughable.
The 2004 contract cemented what was then a burgeoning relationship with Blackwater, setting the stage for a series of departures by senior CIA officials who took high-level positions with the North Carolina security company.
The revolving door helped fuel a backlash against what many inside the agency and on Capitol Hill came to regard as an overuse of outside firms, many of which made millions of dollars after filling their staffs with former CIA employees.
Dive and conquer, oh and a fist full of dollars doesn't hurt anyone!
