    Indigenous nationals. Pretty much what I suspected. They will be tortured and executed.

    Ok, so they could be Iranians that somehow broke some law inside Iran and the Mullah's saw value in promoting them as American spies. Typical.

    Apparently, they were indeed paid foreign informants for the CIA. It's very difficult to cultivate/maintain spy operations against Iran and Hezbollah. I tend to think these rings were low-middle echelon operations, but any loss of indigenous operatives is a definite intelligence setback.

    Yeah, no doubt. But hey, all is good because are we not told that Obama is going to make it better by just talking with them? In any case I hope we can recover without much damage to our intel assets, starting Jan. 2013 should be a great start.

    He's in charge. It's his show. Sooner, or later, he has to accept responsibility for something.

    Are you saying that Wikileaks provided the Iranian Intelligence Ministry the information that led to this spy ring being broken up? If so, do you have a source?

    I'm saying it's possible.

    Thank you, like I said it's a massive screwup.

    You thank people or groups for something its possible to do? Normally when you thank someone its for something they do, you know "Hey thanks for helping me move" as opposed to "Hey thanks for it being possible you may help me move." Sounds like you were placing blame for no other reason than its an convenient time to bash something you don't like, facts and reality be damned!

    That being said, I doubt you can blame Obama for this its not something the President personally manages, heck there may be nobody to blame at all. Maybe their handlers at the CIA and planners did the most rationale and smart move for the information they had, but it didn't work out because they were missing some information. Who knows, lets not jump to conclusions.

    No, GWTortureForLunch was a US presidunce, not Iranian. It's not torture and any deaths from enhanced interrogations are results of detainee suicides or self inflicted wounds. Knives in the back, etc. Well, anyway, I just mean torture and execution have been standard USA policy since the world's second place in executions leader showed us how to do it.
