It’s a health issue, so let the CIA and the Pentagram run it.
After the classification decision was made public, a subsequent report in Politico revealed that not only is the National Security Council managing the federal government’s overall response but that they are doing so in close coordination with the U.S. intelligence community and the U.S. military. It states specifically that “NSC officials have been coordinating behind the scenes with the intelligence and defense communities to gauge the threat and prepare for the possibility that the U.S. government will have to respond to much bigger numbers—and soon.”
Little attention was given to the fact that the response to this apparently imminent jump in cases was being coordinated largely between elements of the national security state (i.e. the NSC, Pentagon, and intelligence), as opposed to civilian agencies or those focused on public health issues, and in a classified manner.
The Politico article also noted that the intelligence community is set to play a “key role” in a pandemic situation, but did not specify what the role would specifically entail. However, it did note that intelligence agencies would “almost certainly see an opportunity to exploit the crisis” given that international “epicenters of coronavirus [are] in high-priority counterintelligence targets like China and Iran.” It further added, citing former intelligence officials, that efforts would be made to recruit new human sources in those countries.
Never let a crisis (or a false flag) go to waste! Remember that immediately after 9/11 they said it was America’s new Pearl Harbor. Now, nCoV is America’s new 9/11. Will they soon start saying that moping around the house wearing a mask is the new normal? 9/11 amounted to a massive intel failure and/or covered-up intel actions. The classifications and controls here and now suggest something similar. Is a new PATRIOT Act or another war far behind?
