unceasing vigilance

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 01, 2004

The Central Intelligence Agency wants us to know that it celebrates diversity.

The Agency Network for Gay and Lesbian Employees (ANGLE) is an outreach of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans-gendered employees providing internal networking support and education to the overall Agency regarding issues relating to sexual orientation and the workplace. Efforts are geared toward fostering the principles of diversity and creating opportunities for information sharing and open discussions at all levels of the Agency.

That's what we need -- more opportunities for trans-gendered information sharing in our security services. And this under our right wing, culturally-reactionary (etc., etc.) Republican administration. God knows what the Democrats will bring in.

Curiously, "Ginger's CIA Adventure," available at the CIA's Homepage for Kids, gives us a virtual tour of the CIA compound omitting the staff restroom where, presumably, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered employees foster principles of diversity.

Remind me -- what is it exactly that we're being protected from?

    I worked for the government until retirement three years ago and I can tell you that every government agency persues an activist pro-homosexual agenda as an inergal part of its diversity program. It's enough to make one ill to see it and to be on the receiving end of this propaganda. The impact of this pervasive propaganda is that few who fail to embrace it ever receive advancement Linus

    The Agency is on a course for self-destruction. "Information sharing" and "discussions at all levels" will be implemented to resolve all conflicts -- necessarily framed in the neo-speak of happy relativism, (effectively neutralizing the organization's professed mission to protect), where, alas, nothing remains worthy of protection. Come to think of it...what is it exactly that we're protecting right now?
