Larry Johnson’s most recent rant

One of the saddest parts of the 2008 primary was the online melt down of Larry Johnson. Today he has a curious rant about Obama’s visit to CIA HQ.

He brings up the old canard that spooks don’t trust Obama. Oh really? Because Obama got 61% of the vote in Fairfax County, home of the CIA. It is difficult to believe that Obama could have gotten those kinds of numbers if all of the spook vote were against him. I would point out that Obama won by even higher margins in Falls Church, Arlington and Alexandria. You simply can’t win those jurisdictions by a landslide if the entire security community is against you. There are too many military, FBI, and CIA people who live in Northern Virginia to win by a landslide without their support.

Many CIA Case officers broke their allegiance to the Constitution by torturing people, and given that they did so on behalf of a president who betrayed the identities of a case officer and an agent. Shame on them and shame on Obama for his willingness to play Cardinal Law to their Father Shanley.

I am glad that Obama went to the CIA. There are many hard working people there trying to protect our country and it is proper that their President come and thank them in person.

On the other hand, it is much more to the purpose what citizens think of the CIA than what the CIA thinks of our President.
