The spectre of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. *:-) ...... or more for real, SMERSH in IT and Spectacular AI ‽ .
Wallach, who has been with the agency for 19 years, noted that the FBI is still having difficulty recruiting talent. People who work for the FBI do so due to their belief in "the mission", he acknowledged.
A Department of Justice report into the agency earlier this year found that recruits were discouraged by the invasive recruitment processes, and better private-sector salaries.
A similar difficulty exists and grows in Blighty too, with the protection of corrupt and perverse politicians and extortionist banker systems administrators because of a failed and inept cuckold of an inequitable justice and criminal prosecution service, destroying any and all future belief in “the mission” being fair and reasonable and for the greater good.
And it being fully widely recognised as being inherently bad, and as a cancerous growth on societies, is their, the global public sector’s intelligence and security services sector’s, worst nightmare realised, as future considerably smarter talent goes pirate and private to make things better and earn unbelievable and/or unheard of fortune, for of course, the considerably smarter ones would be ensuring they be securely perfectly anonymously protected from both real and virtual discovery and physical capture.
Eventually, and who is to say not even now as the matter is being discussed here, the smarter ones will not be gainfully “employed” and leading the aforementioned compromised systems, to protect them from the systemic catastrophic vulnerabilities which exist to be ruthlessly exploited and exported.
After all, such shenanigans are default establishment practice are they not, as is evidenced with Nazis to victorious allies in an earlier exercise of utilising greater talent with Operations Paperclip and Osoaviakhim
