Top secret America has grown beyond control since 9/11: America's secret Army!
Top Secret America
top secret America has grown beyond control since 9/11
The results of this 2 year investigation is scary stuff! The top secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. They can continue to grow and do what they want even against us and no one is the wiser.
These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by the Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine. Reality is hidden and lost in our cumbersome bureaucracy and those benefitting will never let it shrink.
The investigation's other findings include some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies working on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in some 10,000 locations across the United States. There is no way of knowing size or costs because in buildings scope and structure it is growing every day and is multifaceted and hidden from others as the intelligence community can do what they want in the name of America and our security even if it is against our best interest. This is frightening!
An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1 1/2 times as many people as live in Washington, hold top secret security clearances. This does include the likes of cooks and janitors who work in top secret environments but there is no way to tell who is spying on who or working for who. This is a terrible out of control situation that boggles the mind.
In Washington and the surrounding area, 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings -- about 17 million square feet of space. That is only what we know and we don't even know that as no one has to tell us anything as long as they have the power and say they are doing it for us. I kid you not, this is scary!
Many security and intelligence agencies do the same work, creating redundancy and waste. For example, 51 federal organizations and military commands, operating in 15 U.S. cities, track the flow of money to and from terrorist networks. top secret America continues to grow out of control
This will never be brought under control! Just how do we bring this under control? Short answer is we don't! The Government bureaucracy and intelligence agency knows they can always justify more redundancy as they did with the fabricated anthrax attacks to pass the Patriot Act facilitating this monster.
Our intelligence has become a mystery in itself purposely to hide numerous hidden agenda's. This is nation wide and in 10,000 US cities. This is crazy but I only see it continuing unabated whoever is President because right or wrong, regardless of the real reason, they can justify it. Damn, damn, damn, this is scary!
