There is a hidden country within the United States. It was formed from the astonishing number of secrets held by the government and the growing ranks of secret-keepers given charge over them. The government secrecy industry speaks in a private language of codes and acronyms, and follows an arcane set of rules and customs designed to perpetuate itself, repel penetration, and deflect oversight. It justifies itself with the assertion that the American values worth preserving are often best sustained by subterfuge and deception. There are indications that this deep state is crumbling.

These two cretinous authors have out Clancy'd Amerifool, Tom Clancy. Truly, they put the word // theory \\ in the clownish phrase, conspiracy theory! Ambinder has written for The Atlantic, which just ran another disinformational story claiming that the bankers never broke any laws leading up to the global economic meltdown? Minus 20 stars!
