Of Course There’s a Term for It

In the previous post I mention my suspicion that “former” intelligence community employees at Twitter were actually assigned there by their agencies to pursue official objectives.

It has since come out that there’s even a term for it, because of course there is: sheep-dipping.

Maybe you’ve seen the recent meme holding that “conspiracy theory” is just another term for “spoiler.”

Trust?

Whatever a former intelligence community operative, analyst, or manager may sincerely believe, as long as he or she still has a security clearance, I cannot afford to believe they are truly “out.”

That goes especially for former IC employees who went to work for Twitter during its years as a political censorship op masquerading as a social media platform.
