Hard Policy wears on a Career

Russian Hacking and Cybersecurity: 

Top U.S. intelligence officials testified at a hearing on cybersecurity threats which none of this would have made news if the Podesta e-mails were only about puppies and kittens but they weren’t.  Cats out of the bag and a real shit storm has hit Washington, even Judge Napolitano said the leak came from the NSA and filtered through Wikileaks, who else would have the e-mails?  This was leaking, this was not hacking.  Corruption has gone a bridge too far and it shows on the faces and in emotions of the ones who carry the sword, war is hell, war wears you down.

Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas questioned the intelligence officials on Russian interference with the election, when we get to Admiral Rogers in this clip at the 2:00 time stamp and it seems the Admiral could use some rest.  The question comes to Clapper, “that there is no evidence of vote tallies were manipulated in any way” Clapper response is No.  But now comes a hard question for a man who has given 53 years of service to the intelligence branch of government, “is ascertaining the motives, plans and intentions of foreign leaders amongst the hardest tasks we ask our intelligent services to perform?”  Before Cotton can finish and he knows what answer is coming, Clapper says, “it always has been” as he looks down to the desk to fidget with his thoughts.  Hard policy wears on a career when storing, creating, secret squirrel world and it shows.
