CIA Raises Technical Incompetence Flag

The CIA‘s responded to Michael Morisy‘s request for:

“a copy of emails sent to or from the CIA’s FOIA office regarding FOIA Portal’s Technical Issues.”

gives these requirements for requesting emails:

We require requesters seeking any form of “electronic communications” such as emails, to provide the specific “to” and “from” recipients, time frame and subject.

(The full response.)

Recalling that the FBI requested special software to separate emails of Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner on the same laptop, is the CIA really that technically incompetent in terms of searching?

Is the CIA is incapable of searching emails by subject alone?

With a dissatisfied-with-intelligence-community president-elect Donald Trump about to take office, I would not be flying the Technical Incompetence Here flag.

The CIA may respond it is not incompetent but rather was acting in bad faith.

In debate we used to call that the “horns of a dilemma,” yes?

I’m voting for bad faith.

How about you?
