she’s attractive. Consider this though: She was a spy. Spies ARE actors/actresses. And – she’s plenty real:
Spies are actors that don’t get a second take
They can make money off their work. In fact, they can talk freely about _anything_ they did or learned that doesn’t compromise national security.
And, most things they do or say _don’t_ compromise national security.
Here’s the oath: It’s not that much:
“I , [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.””
It’s possible. Still though, I’ve known ex-CIA folks. It was a job that happened to be with the govt. But once they get into the private sector, it’s just a really awesome thing to have on your resume.
We have buttloads of ex-CIA, ex-FBI, and ex-Mafia folks living here.
Their jobs are DONE, over, finished. If you think they’re under a gag order, then you haven’t sat down and had to listen to long involved stories when all you want to do is go to the bathroom.
No, no gag order except for ongoing missions. Ultimately, a spy job is a job as an actor/actress but with the government, no cameras, and real special fx that can kill you.
I believe she’s in the private sector completely now and has been for a few years.
She started an online company that flopped miserably in 2012. Could that have been a cover? A front? Part of her mission? Perhaps. But I don’t think so.
She *was* quite vague about some details in her video. She didn’t say the “who” of the “small group of people”. She didn’t say “who” was fighting on the ground. She was careful with how she talked. She’s not dumb. This was an Al Jazeera video too : AJ *is* known for having good journalism and they’re in the unique position of being able to appeal to both West and Middle East successfully: A rare feat for any news outlet.
I don’t think anybody was undermined here.
That being said, CIA spies _are_ actors/actresses so yes, it’s possible that this is part of her mission… *just like* it’s possible that the new guy who showed up as an alternative for Trump could be on another secret mission.
There’s no way for us to know. It’s easy to believe in puppet-masters because THEN the world makes sense. “Ah, at least SOMEBODY’S in control, and I know who they are!!” – but what if there’s not? That’s a far more frightening possibility.. and the one I think that’s a little more likely.
Consider fighting a war on multiple fronts. On one hand, you have to fight hard “’cause they’re evil”. That’s one narrative.
But then, you can’t run that narrative only. You have to consider diplomacy.
Imagine a scenario that your enemies laid down all their arms in exchange for peace talks. Would you be ready to listen? Would you be willing to see their point of view?
You have to be, otherwise there’d be no peace. Peace has to be the final exit strategy.
So, what she’s doing isn’t anti-American. It’s pro-American. It’s pro-Peace. It’s another angle.
Is she under order from the CIA? I don’t know. I suspect she’s here in the private sector, not doing anything that compromises national security.
Yet if she was working for them, it wouldn’t surprise me either. Right now, “the people” want to hear WAR. But _some_ people want to hear PEACE. And within the CIA, achieving peace (which protects national interests) _is_ part of their mission.
Could be good cop/bad cop? Or maybe she’s a hippie at heart. Either way, I don’t have any problem with what she’s doing.
