Craig McMillan: Super Genius

You gotta hand it to Craig McMillan. The NSA thought they could put one over on the world but he sniffed out their clever plan. In a Worldnetdaily column entitled “Is Edward Snowden an NSA Double Agent?” he rips the mask off the ghoul to reveal the truth to the world.

Imagine for a moment that you are a declining superpower in an increasingly dangerous world…

If you were the government in such a nation, what would you do?…

Or perhaps you might think about how to preserve your power and influence in the world, even with all the problems you had?

What if you were a gambler at heart? And what if you decided that your best hope for preserving your own power and your nation’s influence in the world was to convince everyone else that you really knew everything there was to know about everyone and everything else? That nothing could be hidden from you. And that resistance was futile?

Might you enter into a grand gamble? Might you try to convince the world on the outside and your own citizens on the inside that your already possessed omniscience? That you knew their words, dreams, deeds and thoughts? That it had already happened? And that there was nothing anyone could do about it? What if your goal was to buy time – to make it so?

And what if you sent Edward Snowden forth into the world to do this job? And when he was finished, arranged asylum for him to return back home?

What if?

I think he’s right, folks. This brilliant scheme was concocted by Otto Gershwitz. It’s an X K Red 27 technique. (10 points to the person who can identify that reference)

    Ed, the reference is to “A Fish Called Wanda”. Otto says it in trying to fool Archie’s wife.

    Pfft. This is small time thinking. They’re never going to catch on if they keep thinking small. It’s much bigger than that. He’s actually a septuple agent for the NSA, FEMA, Bilderberg, the illuminati, the Gay Agenda, and Satan.

    Indeed, he is almost as intelligent as Wile E. Coyote.

    And what does “debriefing KGB defectors in a safe house” have anything to do with this?

    If you were the government in such a nation, what would you do?…

    Pick some pissant 3rd world dictatorship and kick the shit out of it on prime-time TV. And, then, …. lose.

    There is a substantial black market for used underwear.

    Speaking of universe-shattering events beyond the pale of anything you can imagine, Larry Klayman just scored a major victory in federal court and is making headlines all over:

    Craig: Apes don’t read the NSA leaks!

    “Yes they do, Craig. They just don’t understand them.”

    That’s “The Agenda of the Great Gay Satan” to you, bucko.

    Loqi – That’s ridiculous. The illuminati exclusively employ pentuple agents.

    The illuminati exclusively employ pentuple agents.

    Nonsense! They use underground agents! Although I suppose it’s possible that they are polyloyal mole-people.

    ” resistance was futile?”

    THAT reference is to the Vogon guard’s Aunt.

    Aristotle was not Belgian! The central message of Buddhism is not “Every man for himself!” And the London Underground is not a political movement! Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked ‘em up.

    @ Marcus Ranum # 7 I am going to try real hard to forget that one.

    How would they ever hope to avoid the whole thing being exposed? Unless…they carefully crafted some uber-fringeoid wacko persona…call him “McMillan”… to publicize the scheme with the least possible credibility, so that NOBODY would believe…

    so, an omniscient superpower sent a son out into the world to spread the truth about the superpower.

    Snowden is Jesus!

    And we would have gotten away with it too if it hadn’t been for those meddling “reporters” at WND.

    This plan is so devious it could only have been conceived by Karla.

    Declining superpower, sure. Increasingly dangerous world? Bahahahaha. Read The Better Angels of Our Nature.

    @8&18:

    It appears that Judge Leon issued an injunction with a concurrent stay, pending appeal by the BHP*. The brief article I read here:

    http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/federal-judge-rules-that-nsa-metadata-collection-program-likely-unconstitutional/

    included this:

    “He ruled that he was not bound by a 1979 Supreme Court ruling that both the Obama Administration and the secret FIS court that has approved the data sweeps have interpreted as authorizing the program. Judge Leon said that the Supreme Court in the case of Smith v. Maryland did not deal with the communications world as it exists today, so its ruling does not directly apply to what NSA is now doing on a worldwide basis in search of terrorism information. He found that, today, telephone and other communications companies are essentially engaged in a joint intelligence-gathering program with the federal government”

    It’s seems an argument of degree and not kind, IANALOEAPWOIHRBTOSIAWIT*, so there is that.

    Leon, btw, seems to be one of the good guys going back to the Gitmo nonsense about detainees not having any rights. He was appointed by B41TLo2ESSF***, my Iron-O-Metric Model 5000′s dial looks like oneathem altimeters on the WWII fighter planes in a flat spin.
