More recently the USG and many agencies within the USG are getting more and more secretive. Some claim they have many more enemies now from a multitude of sources, be it terrorists, Russian expansion, home grown terrorists, criminals and extremist elements within the borders of the United States.
Further I have noticed through the use of the US FOIA a number of strange censorship decisions, including censoring names of individuals who authored documents, even though you can obtain a vast number of names, ranks, position, from LinkedIn, face book, government websites etc. Yet these would be censored in any official documents released. Also I noticed that one individual or group filed for a very specific document by the Information Report number to the DIA, and they in return censored that number in the applicable releasable document. The FBI did the same to me with a document concerning a certain individual name; they declassified it by censoring this individual’s name.
There is a systematic paranoia throughout the USG, which is influenced by uncertainty, hype from the media and the reaction of certain military types, including reactions by the public and the politicians. This hype has been a constant ongoing problem in US society, most apparent during the height of the cold war, with hype from the media affecting the social culture which intensified the military resolve and mind set towards anti communism and the terms such as “commie reds” and nuclear Armageddon, which some generals favoured, due to their limited mind sets.
Individuals inside the USG power structure are not all powerful, some have limited mental and social insights, intelligent but inefficient in other respects. They make serious mistakes, and bad decisions, sometimes as a result of the systematic nature of the command structure and inaccurate assessments from intelligence sources and bad estimates from intelligence documents.
Now this systematic paranoia has spread to terrorism, which has intensified due to intervention in certain Middle Eastern countries by the US and others powers. Some of it is no doubt justified but due the mind set of some in Washington and others in military circles the paranoia which is a part of the official line of thinking for decades has raised its ugly head, and in turn spread to the media, and some in political and public circles....
