Intelligence Agencies May Dismiss Thousands of Officers Who Refuse Coronavirus Vaccine

No, not even if you work in a three letter agency.

It is always going to be the most competent that are going to refuse these vaccines.

Obviously, this is a program to cleanse every institution of people not loyal to the regime, but it’s not a very good plan. Along with losing competent people, they’re also backing competent people into a corner, on purpose.

They are really hurting their own selves here in ways that they do not seem to have thought through.


Thousands of intelligence officers could soon face dismissal for failing to comply with the U.S. government’s vaccine mandate, leading some Republican lawmakers to raise concerns about removing employees from agencies critical to national security.

Several intelligence agencies had at least 20% of their workforce unvaccinated as of late October, said U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart, a Utah Republican who is a member of the House Intelligence Committee.

CIA Director William Burns disclosed publicly last week that 97% of the agency’s officers have been vaccinated. The National Reconnaissance Office, which operates U.S. spy satellites, has more than 90% of its workforce vaccinated.

But Stewart said some agencies in the 18-member intelligence community had as much as 40% of their workforce unvaccinated. He cited information the administration has provided to the committee but not released publicly. He declined to identify the agencies because full information on vaccination rates was classified.

While many people will likely still get vaccinated before the administration’s Nov. 22 deadline for civilian workers, resistance to the mandate could leave major agencies responsible for national security without some personnel. Intelligence officers are particularly hard to replace due to the highly specialized work they do and the difficulties of completing security clearance checks.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined several requests to provide figures for the intelligence community. The office also would not say what contingency plans are in place in case officers are taken off work due to not complying with the mandate.

This is all very sloppy.

Not everything can be contracted out to Israelis.

Having soymen run the CIA is going to cripple both the domestic and international anal agenda.
