In the spirit of “Hey! They left us a horse!”

A Chinese national hired at the Arizona Counterterrorism Information Center may have stolen data from the agency before abruptly flying back to China without notifying his superiors — a possible security breach the agency has been covering up since 2007.

The gent in question should likely not have been hired in the first place, since he was a Chinese national. When he left he erased his work computers, didn’t advise his superiors he was leaving, and took a number of hard drives with him. ‘Possible security breach’ may be understating the situation just a tad.

Locally, we appear to have a Trojan horse even higher up the security food chain. Not an idealogue in this instance, just someone with a few too many butterflies and daisies between his ears.

Who FFS hired this idiot? might be an unduly muted response to recent comments from the head of ASIO, David Irvine.  That’s Irvine, with an e, by the way, not Irving. We haven’t hired a Holocaust denier on as a spymaster. Perhaps I should add, not yet. But give us time.

Irvine has White Man’s Guilt enough for a Grand Final crowd. He’d like more Muslims to join his team so that Australia can better understand them.

The old boys of the KGB must be wishing they’d had it as easy. They had to infiltrate their people into Western intelligence services the hard way, with forged idenities and documents. David Irvine’s throwing the door open and offering halal lunches in the canteen.

As Bret Harte explains at Morning Mail, this idea isn’t new.

On Tuesday last week, Yasmina Haifi, an official at the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism in the Netherlands, tweeted: “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It is a preconceived plan of Zionists who want to deliberately make Islam look bad.”

Gettit? ISIS maniacs were set up with Jewish money, and Jewish direction, she says. They knew that ISIS would murder Christians, steal their possessions, slice throats of journalists, sell women as sex slaves and when they did that, it would give Muslims a bad name.

Our local Muslim community is almost as truculent. Many senior representatives boycotted a meeting with the Prime Minister recently. This was after Tony Abbott had backed away from the promised repeal of Section 18c, with the explicit purpose of placating the Islamic demographic.

ASIO stands for Australian Security Intelligence Organisation – or used to, at any rate.

Maybe it’s time to revamp the acronym:

Australian Spies Ignore Outrages.


Still laughing after all these years.
