“ALL TOO HARD”, SAYS ASIO CHIEF
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
ASIO reckons they can’t keep up with the work load as China now knows more about our secrets than ASIO does. Well, fewer golf games might help the spooks get on top of it. ASIO has been a Canberran joke for 50 years and Red Hill’s embassies have been openly co-opting Parliamentarians like Dastyari and Bob Hawke for not much money. Neither of whom has been held to account.
One incompetent spook boss after another has finally landed ASIO with its current Director-General, Duncan Lewis who, after reclining his Italian leather chair a notch further back, relies on budding jihadists’ families to “dob in” their prospective jihadi martyrs.
And in the interim, they insist there be no criticism of Islam as it may dissuade these “sensitive Muslim families” from “dobbing in” their family members. Sheeeeeez!
The fight now begins to see who holds it
As we can look forward to a surge in terrorist activity now that al Raqqa has been dismantled as the centre of ISIS’s caliphate, again we are told not to jump to conclusions. These attacks are “lone wolf” things and not a reflection on Islam. We must not upset good, honest, welfare dependent, Labor voting, Muslims.
I know it’s difficult to get the obvious through the top spook’s thick head, but terrorist incidents are pretty well exclusively Islam inspired. “Allahu Akbar” is not a Presbyterian expression. And separating heads from torsos is not a custom of the Hillsong mob. “Oh, but we foiled 25 attacks”, say the authorities. Bullshit! That’s so easy to say when trying to explain your apparent incompetence.
Name one Muslim who has snitched on an active jihadist and I’ll show you one dead Muslim who won't be looking forward to 72 virgins.
As for Chinese and Russian interference in Aussie politics, there has only been interference when ASIO and ASIS are asleep; they mostly are. As the new ASIO building (above) cost approached $800 million, it was discovered the Chinese had stolen the blueprints replete with all the internal wiring, so the entire interior had to be ripped out and replaced.
So where was ASIO then? Well, our band of Commonwealth sleuths must have been on the nineteenth hole over the road at Royal Canberra again? I used to play golf with these blokes once a weekday and I can tell you they have combined IQs of a mentally retarded turtle.
And Red Hill’s embassies invite all the likely politicians to their regular, themed, drinkies which degenerate into gear-off affairs. And that’s for a very good reason, you see no-one is ever game to say anything, (including me). A likely politician who is bumping into walls, pissed as a parrot with donger in hand and propositioning an attache’s missus, is a fair catch!
Either he agrees to cooperate or not, either way he will never say a thing!
Okay, I must be honest, this was my experience 50 years ago, but I have, among many, a clear recollection of being starkers talking earnestly to a starkers foreign Consulate Official with the Official’s topless wife (well, I think it was his wife) busy doing some yummy stuff with my package. I just kept talking for as long as possible before rushing off to find my partner.
How espionage was conducted through the 50s and 60s has likely not changed, so when the ASIO boss says it’s all too hard,
… hmmmm, he’s probably right.
