Honestly, this sounds like a man who took advantage of a stupid government position in a stupid office department. He started skipping days, nobody said shit, he started skipping months, nobody said shit, he started taking trips and charging to the department, and nobody said shit. He retired, and kept getting paychecks, and nobody said nothing. He got busted, paid back 1.3 mil by writing a CHECK like a boss, did got 32 months in prison which he started on December 18, 2013, and got out on June 1, 2016.
Wherever there are protections, there will be abuses. This is one example of that. However, there is always a positive trade off. In this case, the trade off was the benefit that the many honest CIA workers do for this country on a daily basis. It's important that we allow these people to continue to do their job, even if there is occasional abuse of the system.
No, it is my personal belief that the government does not do too much to protect the identities of CIA agents. I think that the government does just enough to protect the identities of CIA agents, because their jobs are some of the most important jobs in the world, and they need to be fully protected.
No, the government does not do too much to protect the identity of CIA agents because their identities must be kept secret. Just because one person abused the system does not mean that everyone is to blame. Sure, some changes could be made, but in general, the government needs to protect the identities.
