WSJ Says CIA Chief Wouldn't Do Anything 'Inappropriate'...

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Joshua Cho

Wall Street Journal report (5/25/19) by Warren Strobel whitewashed CIA Director Gina Haspel's career and put a positive spin on the CIA's insulation from public accountability with its turn towards its greatest opacity "in decades."

While one might expect CIA officials to support greater secrecy around the organization, it's odd that ostensibly independent journalists—with a mission to hold official organizations accountable by informing the public—would treat less information coming from the agency as a positive development.

Yet that's exactly what the Journal report did, depicting Haspel's strategy of avoiding backlash from the Trump administration by not publicly contradicting its dubious claims as "protecting the agency" from "the domestic threat of a toxic US political culture."
