Where we spy one, we spy all.

Subby, Q means something else now.

So your headline is suggesting the CIA believes there is a massive Democratic conspiracy to eat babies.

So they're going to have all the cool tech gizmos like James Bond now?   Cool.

The CIA didn't have its own lab before now?

Have they had a member of the Q Continuum show up on Star Trek: Lower Decks yet?  Because I would totally watch that episode.

They already did, but no one really paid attention to the DST as the CIA is mostly librarians, analysts, and knuckle draggers now, with little in the way of actual field operations.

Adding a way for the research to generate economic benefits and commercial applications brings it somewhat in line with what the DOD has been doing with DARPA and SBIR stuff for some time.

It does, but it is purely in-house. This is entirely different

We already have DARPA. Guessing this is just a way to funnel money to more contractors...

Our son's first job after college was for a company founded with CIA seed money. This story isn't all that surprising.

It's now a profit center with civil servants sharing the spoils.

Since I dnrtfa that's what I assumed, or maybe that they were launching a division to keep tabs on the Qanon idiots that have been identified as a potential terrorist threat. But now from tft I learn they're launching a division to build cool spy gadgets, and I'm left wondering why the fark they didn't already have one of those.

So they're restarting MKUltra, aren't they?
 
2020-09-21 4:16:02 PM  
Wouldn't this be a distraction from their core mission of spying?
 
2020-09-21 4:16:17 PM  
Meh.. it's just another part of the aparatus the Company have spun up to provide a veneer of oversight by those who ar not 'inside'.

You didn't think they'd let anyone just look in their closet? As if they'd let them...

My thoughts exactly.  Nearly shiat myself reading the headline

Wait... research we pay for as taxpayers is going to profit employees and the CIA itself? WTF?

"The CIA requests that other federal labs and academic leaders send in their ideas to work together via an online form."

Trust us.

"Some phenomenal innovations have come from CIA over the years..."

They did introduce LSD to America and its citizens.

This. I read the headline and had just a little more dread added to my already already overstocked dread stockpile.

I'm thinking the Victorian Porcelain Doll That Sounds Like Gilbert Gottfried was trying to pressure them to let him and Saudi Arabia and Eric Prince and Russia, etc in on it.

This may be a trap to see who bites.

An inevitable result of funding cuts. Everybody is holding bake sales now. Except the military.

damn that's crooked , they got the tools to pretty much steal all the crap everybody is inventing. disapearing them , then pocket it with no paper trail. .... a bit too much power in the same place with no oversight.

At this point I have lost trust in nearly every govt agency. Since they announced something like this with the orange mold still in office I will question their motives.

DO YOU HAVE TO SUMMARIZE THEM AND RANK EACH POSTER ON A THREAT MATRIX?

HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO EXPLAIN QANON TO A BALDING PUDGY LATE 50S MAN FROM LANGLEY, WHO JUST WANTS TO KNOW THE EXTENT TO WHICH THIS INDICATES AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE LOST SATISFACTION WITH THEIR LEADERSHIP?
