Seems sensible.

27 August, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

With the American debate polarized politically over WMD and the “VietNam Hangover Syndrome” as applied to Iraq, and with the old “Arab theory re enemy of my enemy” saws going around the internet discussions, here is an undramatic, quite sensible analysis from Germany (begins a few paragraphs down)… via Deutsche Welle – English

I don’t normally read Kremlin Pravda (as we call RT at home here) but this is a wonderfully witty comeback to the revelations that NSA has a LOVEINT problem bigger than most police forces and post offices put together… Well, we have to laugh about losing our 1st Amendment speech as well as our 4th, […]

90s tech for the Teens?

22 August, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

I first heard about this from investment bankers in the 90s who were concerned that another bank, in the glass tower across the street from their glass tower, could pick up vibrations or otherwise “laser in” on their IPOs… I’m surprised it’s news again. Hmmmm. This is the BBC report suggesting the Guardian might need […]

Which means maybe a decade, really.

21 August, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

In wartime, spies generally get a one- or two-day court martial and then a last cigarette. 35 years with parole eligibility means about a decade, really. Kinder, gentler indeed. Just as Gitmo is no deterrent for those who live by the VBIED, ten years won’t stop a serious spy let alone an amateur who just […]

Pot, meet Kettle.

When you act as a paid courier of purloined national secrets, transiting an affected country where you have no legal standing, did you really expect to get through hassle-free? Bad optics, but good reasons –

File this under “whoops”

15 August, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Long have American and German intelligence personnel, among others, railed against and/or circumvented the ban on using Facebook. But some of NATO’s top brass just got hooked in a Chinese fishing expedition via Facebook, so may the brass ought to follow their own rules about avoiding social networking sites?

Throwing the “bullshit” flag

15 August, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Just because one is transgendered or trans-curious does not mean one is so “confused” that one betrays classified information. I sincerely doubt Manning suddenly confused his flashdrive of classified material for Wikileaks with a wand of mascara. I personally know transgendered people in sensitive positions, highly-responsible positions, serious-pressue positions, in various walks of like. One’s […]

This is why you read the source’s entire report…

… Instead of just scanning the headlines. Especially in these days of “click candy”, it’s absolutely crucial to comprehend fully and to think critically before clicking. JFK package probably NOT nerve gas, try to relax people!

Propaganda of the Image

8 August, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Back from a journey to find: This well-stated newspaper op-ed about the recent jailbreaks and chatter; Indications the WH will cave in to terrorist detainee hunger strikes and hard-left protests by furthering the release process for a handful of Gitmo’s enemy combatants to Yemen; and Today’s plane diversion , which is either a nifty false-flag […]
