Cheney: U.S. Will Drop Clinton-Era CIA Restrictions, CIA source: spy recruitment policies put in place by the Clinton administration had devastated the agency’s ability to gather human intelligence, Newsmax September 16, 2001

 

From NewsMax September 16, 2001.

“Cheney: U.S. Will Drop Clinton-Era CIA Restrictions”

“The Cheney statement confirms a report, broken by Christopher Ruddy on NewsMax.com in the immediate aftermath of the attacks:

Cheney announced the policy switch in response to a question from NBC’s “Meet the Press” host, Tim Russert.

RUSSERT: “There have been restrictions placed on United States’ intelligence gathering – a reluctance to use unsavory characters, those who violate human rights – to assist in intelligence gathering. Will we lift some of those restrictions?”

CHENEY: “Well, I think so. I think one of the by-products, if you will, of this tragic set of circumstances is that we’ll see a very thorough sort of reassessment of how we operate and the kinds of people we deal with.

“If you’re going to deal only with sort of officially approved, certified good guys, you’re not going to find out what the bad guys are doing. You need to be able to penetrate these organizations. You need to have on the payroll some very unsavory characters if, in fact, you’re going to be able to learn all that needs to be learned in order to forestall these kinds of activities.”

The vice president added that the Bush administration would “make certain that we have not tied the hands, if you will, of our intelligence communities.”

Just hours after the terrorists struck, a CIA source told Ruddy, NewsMax.com’s editor in chief, that spy recruitment policies put in place by the Clinton administration had devastated the agency’s ability to gather human intelligence.

Ruddy reported late Tuesday:

A regular NewsMax reader, “Roger,” was a CIA spy in the Mideast.

I met him almost two years ago. Roger wanted to tell me why a gung-ho American quit the CIA in disgust.

Roger said the CIA was not interested in recruiting spies.

Clinton and company knew they could not just tell the CIA to stop recruiting spies. That would look stupid and embarrassing.

So they just changed the rules of how spies are recruited, raising the bar on requirements to such a high degree that the most valuable spies could never meet CIA standards and couldn’t work for us.

Previously, I wrote how Clinton effectively stopped the recruitment of Chinese nationals by demanding that only high-ranking embassy officials could be recruited knowing this is almost impossible. Roger told me that. Roger reminded me again of this today.”
