When the State Department recently asked the CIA for names of Iranians who could be sanctioned for their involvement in a clandestine nuclear weapons program, the agency refused, citing a large workload and a desire to protect its sources and tradecraft.
Frustrated, the State Department assigned a junior Foreign Service officer to find the names another way — by using Google. Those with the most hits under search terms such as “Iran and nuclear,” three officials said, became targets for international rebuke Friday when a sanctions resolution circulated at the United Nations.
Bech and the Rambler always accuses me of being CIA and now that the secret’s out about how the US Government collects intelligence, I must now confess: I used Google today …
Now, really, who is afraid of the big, bad wolf …?
