No, no, not his I.Q. If that were the case, he's certainly wealthy enough to purchase more than the half-witted burps of semi-communication that he so proudly emits.

Unfortunately, this is serious stuff. Deadly serious. Please go read the entire piece at AlterNet. Here's a sample:
Private corporations are now a major staple of national intelligence and are heavily involved in producing the most important and most sensitive national security document -- the President's Daily Brief. [...]

But what is not generally known is that the secret side of the Iraq War and the larger "war on terror" is also conducted by private corporations, fielding private spies. The reach of these corporations has extended into the Oval Office. Corporations are heavily involved in creating the analytical products that underlie the nation's most important and most sensitive national security document, the President's Daily Brief (PDB).

Over the past six years, a quiet revolution has occurred in the intelligence community toward wide-scale outsourcing to corporations and away from the long-established practice of keeping operations in US government hands, with only select outsourcing of certain jobs to independently contracted experts. Key functions of intelligence agencies are now run by private corporations. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) revealed in May that 70 percent of the intelligence budget goes to contractors.

Please take a look at the rest here.

I am at a loss for words...
I hope my boss doesn't find out. He'd fire my ass for being stunned into silence.

Yes, this is stunning news, but not surprising. The scary thing is, what else don't we know about?

Remember that George Soros said we need a purge. How big?
