Via Judicial Watch:
As the CIA basks in the shame of a major sex scandal the spy agency divulges some of its valuable work concerning global warming, that it presents a worldwide security risk caused mainly by “social and political stresses outside the United States.”
This type of sensational information is probably not the sort expected from the government agency responsible for providing national security intelligence to senior U.S. policymakers. But this is today’s Central Intelligence Agency, with a fallen chief who may have compromised national security during an extramarital affair and a new emphasis on global warming.
In fact, many Americans may not know that the CIA, created in 1947 by President Harry S. Truman, operates a special center dedicated to global warming. Judicial Watch wrote about it last fall because it operates under a cloak of secrecy that rejects all public-records requests. What we do know is was launched under President Obama in 2009, it’s known as the Center on Climate Change and National Security and it is considered an exclusive unit led by “senior specialists.”
