    Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate panel that an estimated 70% of intelligence workers had been placed on unpaid leave.

    He warned that the damage to US intelligence capabilities caused by a shutdown would be "insidious".

    Muh national security, our state secrets, but if you do want to attack the United States, we are unprepared.

    Is this not the most moronic thing that could be publicly stated?

      Even if what Clapper said was a gross exageration (and I suspect it was), this public statement was harmful; it can only encourage US enemies.

      Yes his statements were horrid.
      Is he the one who also said something about our agents would be tempted to go to the enemys' side if they don't get their paychecks?
      What does that mean?   That our agents are only mercenaries?   If they are, then really they don't need to be American agents, do they?

    No wait.... there is more!

    US President Barack Obama has warned that Wall Street should be concerned that a conservative faction of Republicans is willing to allow the country to default on its debt.

    At least a positive side of the shutdown. After all if the lowest stratus of our social fabric can suffer so can they!

    Here it is.........

    An ongoing government shutdown heightens the risk that American intelligence officers could be flipped as double agents, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday.

    “Each day that goes by the jeopardy increases,” Clapper said while testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. “This is a dream land for foreign intelligence services to recruit. Particularly as our employees, many of whom are already subject to furloughs… are going to have, I believe, even greater financial challenges.”

    This is some crazy paranoid carp we're being fed;  ludicrous!
    And if Mr. Obama is so scared of losing National Security,  he could give up his "baby" legislation in order to keep our Nation safe.   
    I keep wondering how much dumb stuff & how much propaganda he thinks the American people will buy into?
