ARTICLES / DECEMBER 30, 2014 / TUESDAY

ON THE “POOR” SECRET SERVICE,…

12/30/14 – SECRET SERVICE AGENTS BLAME WHITE HOUSE SECURITY LAPSES ON POST 9/11 DEMANDS TO PROTECT MORE PEOPLE WITH LESS MONEY…BUT LAWMAKERS SAY AGENCY HAS BEEN UNACCOUNTABLE FOR YEARS
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2890441/Secret-Service-agents-blame-White-House-security-lapses-post-9-11-demands-protect-people-money-lawmakers-say-agency-unaccountable-years.html

COMMENTS: The Secret Service saying they are not funded well enough is laughable. The money they claim, 1.5B, is just the tip of the iceberg for the money the USSS has access to and spends (the Black Budget is many times this number, and add in all of the military contributions to Presidential Protection it dwarfs the given number). The problem is that they get TOO much money. They have so much “FAT” on the payroll, they are the two thousand pound obese man that is bedridden. Instead of going with the “security Experts” that rattle on about more, more, more, they should shut up, stand down, and just go back to the illiterate crap hole of which they came. They and their crazy, illogical, unreasonable ideas on security. We should be looking for QUALITY over quantity. There are too many Secret Service “administrationcrats” getting in the way of the qualified Agents. It is sad, it is pathetic, it is predictable ridiculous behaviors of a PC run police organization. I will take ten naturally talented security agents over a thousand clowns recruited and trained under the clownish SOP’s the USSS is held under at this time. All the money in the world will not make a Security Agent of any worth out of a CLOWN.

ON THE FBI AND NEW/OLD METHODOLOGIES TO INVESTIGATE HACKING AND HACKERS,…

12/30/14 – FBI BRIEFED ON ALTERNATE SONY HACK THEORY
http://www.politico.com/story/2014/12/fbi-briefed-on-alternate-sony-hack-theory-113866.html

COMMENTS: If this alternative “theory” turns out to be correct the FBI will once again look very foolish and incompetent. I believe it is time to go back to old methodologies of crime fighting and they start with the fact that there are no absolutes in criminal law unless and until you have the wrong doer in cuffs, the evidence to back up the facts, and a confession that jives with the facts. Anything less than that and you have speculation, innuendo, and supposition. The CIA went to this methodology years ago when they kept looking stupid giving their “theories” a 100 percent label. The 100 percent ended up being a much lower percentage, like 15 percent and they were wrong. The main point here is that the FBI believes the NK’s did the deed about 65-70 percent. That is not high enough to place your reputation on. There is nothing wrong with saying, “we don’t know”. It beats the alternative of “we’re sorry, we will get them next time.”

12/30/14 – ‘TRAITOR!’ NEW YORK MAYOR BILL DEBLASIO BOOED BY NEW NYPD OFFICERS AT ACADEMY GRADUATION CEREMONY
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2890261/New-York-Mayor-Bill-Blasio-BOOED-new-NYPD-officers-delivers-speech-academy-graduation-ceremony.html

COMMENTS: DeBlasio is going to do the lying politician thing, which today I saw him doing. He does not care about the police, he does not care about ANYONE that has a contrary view to his. He is all things hideous to logical, reasonable people. I will just say that he is NOT a good person for GOOD people.

12/30/14 – WITH NO TRACE OF MISSING AIRASIA JET, SEARCH RESUMES OVER WIDER AREA
http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/29/world/asia/airasia-missing-plane/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

COMMENTS: Some things in life just leave you speechless. This is one of them. There are no words to describe how idiotic it is that these planes do not have workable, operable GPS tracking. How can they not be located anywhere in the world? I have written about these factors, and the tragedy of flight 370 which is still ongoing.

ON THE BREAKDOWN OF CAPABILITY,…

What Makes Up a Capability?
Before discussing the capabilities possessed by an actor, one must first understand the three basics required to create a given capability: materiel/equipment (something to employ); strategy, doctrine and tactics (methods for employing it); and skills (i.e., proficiency in implementing the method).11 Expressed mathematically,
Capability = Equipment x Methods x Skills
