Former CIA official cites agency’s failure to see al-Qaeda’s rebound

U.S. intelligence agencies badly misjudged al-Qaeda’s ability to take advantage of political turmoil in the Middle East and regain strength across the region after Osama bin Laden was killed, according to a new book by the CIA’s former deputy director. Senior U.S. intelligence officials have previously acknowledged failures to anticipate the Arab Spring movement, which toppled governments in the Middle East and North Africa. But the former official, Michael Morell, wrote that the CIA compounded those errors with optimistic assessments that the upheaval would prove devastating to al-Qaeda.

  1. Some sketchy websites might claim to provide you with the hacks at no cost, however they consist of virus and even malware that could infiltrate within your system and also create mayhem. Look for boom beach hack. It beat CIA.

    1. What about FBI and NSA? THE CIA isn’t so big into the cyber thing when compared to teh others. Or maybe we just don’t know so much about it. It seems pretty clear to me that you either aren’t a native English speaker or you are social engineering visitors to this post. Either way, I’d like to know more about the CIA’s cyber-involvement.
