Federal National Security Workers Think Elected Officials Clueless

What do workers in the US national security state think of our democratically elected leaders? Defense One lets you know: They think their elected masters lack the skills necessary to supervise them.

The Obama administration has no strategy for ISIS, the Pentagon is not leaving enough troops to protect Afghanistan and Congress isnít qualified to keep watch over the military and intelligence services, according to survey of federal workers and troops at the Pentagon, and other national security agencies.

How fun is that? Great fun.

Our elected leaders point to elections as the source of their legitimacy. But suppose the Deep State is right about who gets elected. Then what? Well, it follows that the voters then are not up to the task of choosing who to put on the levers of power. Okay, I agree with that. But where to go with it? The voters and the elected officials aren't competent to govern such a powerful country.

Seems to me this problem is only going to grow as our unelected elites keep pushing to elect a new people with massive immigration. The new people do not show signs of being able make better decisions in the electoral process. Will the Deep State eventually rebel or will it just ramp up propaganda to get the masses to go along with the Deep State's wishes?

National Security is a tasteless joke. The Federal government has been waging war against Americans for decades using immigration as its primary weapon. If there were a National Security Deep State it would have, long ago, identified the enemies of the Nation and taken them out without the permission of the enemies.

The Creep State is hard to defy. Breivik probably allowed himself to be captured because he wanted to see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
