Ex-CIA Spy-in-Training Goes Public on Twitter

Ex CIA Trainee“I was with the CIA for about three and a half months before I was sent to their secret psychiatric prison in Northern Virginia. I was a clandestine service trainee in their program so I wasn’t officially a spy yet. I was training to be a spy,” says Lynnae Williams. Reports Eli Lake on the Daily Beast:

The Twitter feed belonging to Lynnae Williams at first glance looks like most Twitter feeds. There are tweets about what she is reading (Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Madame Bovary); tweets about politics (leans toward the Occupy movement); and tweets about food (tuna casserole, carrot-cake muffins).

But on closer inspection, the feed features something rare for Twitter and even the Internet: detailed disclosures about the CIA. On Tuesday for example, Williams tweeted, “The #Farm is #CIA’s training center near #Williamsburg, Virginia. I think it’s the Kisevalter Center or something.”

In other tweets, Williams, who in 2009 spent nearly four months training to be a CIA spy, details her own experiences with CIA case officers, psychiatrists, and the special security division of the agency that serves as the CIA’s police force. In short, Williams since late February has been disclosing details of her brief CIA career in 140 characters or less …

    I’m amazed with the apparent naive world-view this person must of had. Did she really expect them not to be corrupt? The spy biz is inherently corrupt – it is corruption itself.

    Duh……

      Is it corruption itself? or is it the black growth of advantages growing out of and towering over the muck of corruption we’re wading through.

      Maybe its meta-corruption.

        Maybe its like pouring a vat of shit into another vat of shit. Consequently, the recieving vat over-flows. Soon everything is covered in shit and starts to seem normal.

        Viola! Poof! Corruption is no longer corrupt

          Their’s tends to be carnivore shit which is more likely to be a vector for brain altering parasites as opposed to herbivore shit which is more likely to be part of the formation of life giving humus and myriad forms of shroomy goodness.

    In other not news, when you join the Army they really do expect you to do bad things.

    Pay is pretty good though.

       military work would be much cleaner than intel work, pretty much all humint relies on entrapment, manipulation, and betrayal, straight violence is much easier to deal with.

         Analyst work is pretty easy, browse the web, read documents, pour over maps, watch media and then try to guess what you bosses want to hear and try to interpret the documents to provide that message.
        Her career basically derailed, went a little off track, she resisted in a bad way and it went further off track, she resisted in an even worse way and it it completely off track.
        She was competent as an analyst and would have been fine if she stayed there, the mistake was to get caught in a peter principle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Principle  promotion.

    In other news, the CIA categorically denies everything and has a file on her that shows she worked as a prostitute for six years in Soviet Russia and regularly downloads child pornography.
