Shocking !!!
From the very article:
A recently retired CIA officer remarked to SOFREP that right now our counter-intelligence is so bad that we are only catching the dumb ones, the people stupid enough to out themselves on social media or who mail classified documents to news outlets, leading one to wonder how many more are out there that our government is completely unaware of.

Just putting idealogy on the shelf for a moment. Some idiots do slip through the Officer training system into Infantry units, it happens sometimes. I had one at my first Active Duty Infantry unit in 1985 that pointed a loaded .45 at me and told me to shut up (a 1LT as well). Previously, he did the same to members of his own Platoon, several times previous. All of this at the West Berlin MOUT site no less. I never in my life saw an Army disciplinary action move so fast. Gone from the unit in 3-4 weeks, never to be seen from again. In this case having a strong NCO Corps was important to the speed of dispatch.

BTW, West Point Cadets have no real firm grasp of what goes on in a real line Infantry Company until the time between their Junior and Senior year when the Army allows them to spend time with one over the Summer recess. Out of 4 West Point Cadets sent to my 101st Airborne Infantry Company only one stuck with the MOS. 1 was written up so badly with evals he was forced to choose another MOS, the other 2 changed voluntarily their choices. So after seeing a real line Infantry Company only 1 in 4 of the West Point Cadets sent to my Company, remained in the Infantry Branch.

That's because after the Fall of the Soviet Union, we thought we were safe against foreign intelligence threats. We were wrong but empowering the intelligence community is not the primary goal of Congress right now.
