I watched a series called The Americans. It was about how the Soviet Union in the 1980s planted highly trained KBG operatives in the U.S. to behave like normal families while they did their undercover spy operations. They were called moles.
I was just wondering if what appear to be normal people living normal lives and then creating mass shooting aren't really implanted by some organization from the mid-east. The latest shooter was born here and his Father said he was a good boy while growing up, but his school records show otherwise. Perhaps his father trained him to do what he did and the same thing with the San Bernardino shooter.
I don't think so. One of the reasons is that his dad did not exactly keep a low profile. He had that weird TV show and apparently he was a bit of whack job throughout his professional life here in the States. As we look back now, there were signs missed on this guy. Domestic violence, and other strange behavior. Just like other shooters.
Those moles the Soviets used during the Cold War were extraordinarily low profile. Almost too normal/perfect; the complete opposite of what the shooter and his dad were.
The Americans does a good job of showing the oridinary and scary side of their lives. Fascinating question.
Once again reality evades it's own detection , There are no moles , only the apparent incompetence of too many politically controlled FBI agents , to many bosses , to many liberal legal loopholes and a leadership that will not gamble on prevention by laws and action in his last six months in office .
Obama's election was some of our fault , his continued incompetence is all of our fault !

In an OP-ed piece on The New York Times, the Russian ad infinitum president Vladimir Putin, slammed the concept of American Exceptionalism, saying that it is extremely dangerrous to tell people that they are exceptional, no matter what the motivation is. I suppose he was just being a...
