German intel top dog says analysts didn’t expect jihad terrorists to sneak into Europe with migrants

What’s that saying about people rising to the level of their incompetence?

    Well, I’d say the intelligence bunch are not all that intelligent. Actually stupid is the defining word here.

      I think it’s somewhat deeper than that simplistic analysis, Maggat.
      You can take it as read that there were certainly some who did, and they were spot on, but they were either removed, ignored or silenced in some way or the other because their analysis did not serve the purposes of the Merkal enabled NWO euro-ethnic cleansing project.

      • Bingo.

        They knew exactly what the threat was and ignored it.
        It’s like Obama finding out everything that has gone wrong on his watch from the media first.

  • Bernie

    I would say that the Intelligence Community has no intelligence and thinks the rest of us are totally stupid!

    Not a saying, it’s a principle:
    It looks like Europe has reached it. Scary thought.

    “Although they did not need to mix their people among the refugees…” Need??
    What the heck does NEED have to do with it?

    I liken this more to an Intelligence Branch that has been pummelled by political correctness. Essentially, some young captain/intelligence analyst making that statement in an intelligence brief would be browbeaten or worse sent off to re-education training…then the offending brief would be destroyed or altered to the point where any reference to the enemy mixing in with the “sainted” refugees would be deleted.

    • There may be more than a grain of truth to that. Look what happened in Rotherham etc etc etc.

    The new German police and security services motto is the same as Sgt Schultz’s.

    It’s called the Peter Principle. Don’t ask me why, but, that’s what it is. It is truly amazing how often it happens in government, in particular.

    • It does seem a fact of life.

      It’s named for Dr. Lawrence Peter, who authored a book about it.

  • That’s like standing in a downpour with an umbrella and saying: “I predict it’s not going to rain today.”

    Maybe they shoould hire some analysts wjo aren’t retarded.

    Is this a joke?
