Effectively none of these agencies have ever truly downsized and that alone powerfully argues for collusion.
On top of all that we are seeing ample indication of deliberate provocation.
All these agencies have no trouble bribing politicians as well. Once again, ample motive exists and add in public relations to guide reactions and it is only a matter of time that an ambitious individual finds a way to trigger an event.
What is startling is that we now can identify six suspects all demanding a serious rethink. That it has become obvious is the real surprise. It is not my own nature to suspect rogue behavior in agencies except through individual initiative and there is plenty of all that. That the leadership of any such agency would go rogue is very unfortunate.
