In time, Angleton's zeal and paranoia came to be regarded as counter-productive, if not destructive, for the CIA. In the wake of his departure, counter-intelligence efforts were undertaken with far less enthusiasm. Some believe this overcompensation responsible for oversights which allowed Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen, and many others to compromise the CIA, the FBI, and other agencies long after Angleton's resignation. Although the American intelligence community quickly bounced back from the embarrassments of the Church Committee, it found itself uncharacteristically incapable of policing itself after Angleton's departure. -- Wikipedia.The latest report from Waldo, the patriotic Three Percenter intelligence agent on the Fifth Floor of ATF HQ in DC (aka "the Concrete Asshole of the Universe") covers many big changes happening there, only a few of which can now be revealed. The most interesting tidbit which we can now report is the pending big meeting of Special Agents in Charge.
Of course the latest DOJ decision giving the FBI the right to call the ball at bombing scenes has pissed a lot of street agents off, but the meeting will cover much more than mere jurisdictional poaching.
We will try to have a complete report on that afterward, because there's a better than average change that Waldo will be in the room when the new directives come down from on high. This will leave the counter-intelligent agents (and yes, I meant "counter-intelligent," not "counter-intelligence") of the Chief Counsel's Office chasing their tails once more in their desperate search to answer the question: "Where's Waldo?"
Here's a clue, Little Jimmy. It doesn't really matter who he is, you made him what he is today. Just like ole CPT R.A. Bear, you and your office's misdeeds created him, informed him and set him upon the path of avenging righteousness. Sorta like SA Jody Keeku did for me with the Olofson railroad job.
"Do you love it?Startin' to feel like James Jesus Angleton, Jimmy? Just a BIT paranoid?
Do you hate it?
There it is,
The way you made it."
