007, how old you are! Or about how the CIA is looking for analysts

Today is 03.04.2016 Spanish newspaper ABC published an article by FJ Calero


007 agent is obsolete: Daesh exposes the naivety of the European secret services

• Former CIA analysts analyze the evolution of Western intelligence services in connection with the new threat of jihadism

The article states that during not months, but years, Brussels continues to remain in a relaxed state, thinking that the attacks that took place relate only to the so-called. lone wolves, and in no way relate to terrorist cells. The New York Times states that the explosions were not sudden.

“Could we have prevented what happened?” Asks Randolph Ferson, a former CIA analyst for 28 years. Now the writer who published the textbook "Analytical Techniques for the Special Services", argues that analysis is the most important task. Regardless of the language in which the material is presented, it is necessary to study and analyze it, i.e. time to adapt to modern conditions. In recent years, jihadist leaders have begun to think big.

In an interview with the German weekly Der Spiegel terrorism expert Peter Neuman criticizes the lack of anticipation on the part of the special services in relation to simultaneous and well-organized Brussels attacks. He claims that the secret services have never regarded the so-called attacks. lone wolves as part of the strategy. In January, 2015 returned to Europe to those who learned to organize chaos. And it went unnoticed by security professionals. Neuman believes that intelligence agencies should have legitimate ways to gather all possible information related to the attacks. He also admitted that he was not concerned about privacy, if his own security was at risk. Ex-analyst believes that the West is on the path of suffering, adapting to new conditions. Despite the fact that terrorist attacks will occur, and someone will die, the West, as a strong society, must withstand this and move forward in the fight against terrorism.

From myself I want to add that I don’t want to joke in an article on terrorism at all. But ... further in the publication posted an announcement that the CIA invites to work an analyst. The work schedule and salary are indicated, as well as the address of the official site where interested persons can leave their details.

All this could and would have been much more fun, whenever it was so tragic ... If it were not for blood to be shed on the streets of European capitals, the blood of citizens, unprotected by anyone and nothing, is to blame only for the fact that they simply lived. But the sluggish apathy of the special services did not appear right now ... Endless surprise is caused by the pathological degradation of the instinct of self-preservation among Europeans. But still I would like to hope that the sobering up and recovery of amorphous Europe will come. Perhaps, through the grief and suffering that the Europeans have already endured, and then new tragedies will not come to their homes ... And the sooner this happens, the greater the chances of preserving European civilization itself.

I cite some reader comments on the article:
- The CIA lost confidence when it began to finance jihadists. Let them give explanations to the families of those who died in the attacks.
- Hypocrisy, the new world order ... If the Pentagon really had a desire to do away with IS, he would have done it in less than two weeks.
- Our naivety has not changed. Morality in relation to terrorism has become a fashion that drives us into the framework. We confuse Western morality with Eastern, and they are completely different. In war, we respect the rights of our opponents, but new wars of terror without rules and rights, absolutely ruthless to unprotected civilians, must be fought in ways that are adequate to their cruelty. As long as we continue to apply the rights of people to wild animals, we will get nothing but suffering, and we will feel it on our own skins.

    Yes, Europe, someone will die, but it does not matter, there are many of you, and even the Arabs will raise the population, do not hang up.

    "The publication contains an announcement that the CIA is inviting an analyst. The work schedule and salary, as well as the address of the official website where interested persons can leave their data, are indicated."

    Can I, for a deal, remotely? what

    "If the Pentagon really wanted to end IS, it would do it in less than two weeks."

    And when neither desire nor opportunity is a trumpet at all. yes

      Actually, this hypocrisy infuriates the United States, as states - all the entertainers themselves, organize to please their own, both opportunistic and long-term interests, and then they begin to teach how to live "in new conditions", and even overthrow the unwanted under cries of "dictators who support terrorists. " Before the American impact, in my opinion, there were only two organized paramilitary structures: the IRA in Ireland and Brigate Rosse in Italy (the latter was multiplied by zero), which carried out separate, now targeted, terrorist actions. And mass terror is the brainchild of the United States. And the list should begin with the largest international terrorist organization - NATO, which bombed the unwanted Belgrade into the ground at its will.

    In a war, we respect the rights of our opponents, but new wars of terror without rules and rights, absolutely ruthless to unprotected civilians, must be waged in ways appropriate to their cruelty. While we continue to apply the rights of people to wild beasts, we will not receive anything but suffering and we will feel it in our own skins.

    Well, this is definitely a good idea. But whether she can establish herself in the minds of European politicians and the elite is a big question. My personal opinion is that this will not happen in the near future. For too long, Europe has been in a stupor and atmosphere of absolute liberalism and tolerance. Perhaps when such attacks continue, the necessary thoughts and ideas will begin to form in the head of the average European politician. It’s sad that you have to pay for it with the lives of ordinary people

      I would like to tell him: "NEVER did yours respect the rights and rules of your opponents. ALWAYS VEHICLE, PROBABLY, STRONGLY, CRUELY, LOW, VILIOUS! From the Spanish conquistadors to Napoleons, Hitlers, Ameripedes. defeated.

        100% True! They have no normal analysts! Their evaluation principle is the enemy of my enemy is my friend. And the scheme is the enemy of my enemy - my enemy, forgotten after World War II. The United States does not see a real threat and an enemy, they did not understand that the world has changed after the fall of the socialist camp. Now the watershed is not in ideological views on the arrangement of the world, but in religious ones. Two worlds entered the clash, the Christian and the Muslim, and this is the direct fault of the United States! Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yugoslavia - mistake after mistake! By supporting radical Islam, the United States is digging a hole for itself and its allies. CHAOS cannot be controlled! Politically capitalist Russia, by definition, cannot be the enemy of the United States. Yes, economic interests are sometimes opposite, but political ones are not! And while the United States and its allies consider Russia a threat to themselves, a "scribe" who has been fed by them and gone out of obedience crept up to them. East is a delicate matter. And the huge military-police machine turned out to be ineffective in the fight against terrorism. Neither missile defense, nor a nuclear shield, nor nuclear weapons will save from fanatics. So, they really have problems with the analysis of challenges and threats. hi

      You are right that the United States seeks to destroy Europe. And although they won’t get anything from her, it will be a strategic step to get closer to your country. They are afraid of you !!! Therefore, the EU appeared so that ordinary people would suffer; therefore, Muslims were brought here so that fear reigned. And when everything becomes very bad, they will be the best. I do not believe a single word of them. They only need praise and talk about them. And America itself is a mess, but this does not boast.
      V.V.
      I agree and support Putin, I will stand on his side and without problems in case of conflict I will fight for the Russian Federation on her side so that we get rid of these Western terrorists and traitors to the homeland ...
      F.H.
      Why should the Czech people constantly climb into the anus of some power? Underpants.
      F.H.
      Czech people, do not be like the whole world and keep a cool head. Czech people, get rid of politicians who are paid for harm to Czech land.
      I.P.
      Mr. Putin, destroy America as well ...
      V. N.
      Most Europeans will not go to fight Russia. Has anyone ever heard such peace-loving calls from the Americans? I’ve never been before, and you vile “liberalists” take an example from them - you are rubbish like them.
      P. M.
      Mr. Putin, if something happens, you can be sure that most Europeans will take your side, and only a couple of fools think that European citizens will die for this mess and lack of freedom.

        Sorry, inaccurately expressed, he will be able as soon as the politicians change, and this will not be long - after the upcoming elections there will be many political corpses, the current ones have gotten so much. It seems that the stream of migrants has cleaned the brains of the people. And Putin conceptually somehow immediately became closer, and Russia does not seem so threatening. In general, everything is relative.

    When in Russia there was a peak of terrorism and people were dying, Europeans did not take it seriously (it’s somewhere out there, far away, we cannot have this). When it touched them directly, they began to think.

      Firstly, there are programs for automatic translation. Accordingly, the analytics will be automatic. Conclusions on it can only be made with a machine gun in the "bird's tongue".
      Secondly, there are no problems with analysts in Russia. In Dill, every second in Russia made conclusions a year ago. The issue of price. There is no fat in the USA, instead of transferring, it will be difficult for analysts to switch to viscose, but .... Maybe lace shorts will help to adapt.

    Mathematical analytics is in the embryonic stage of development, if not to say that it is in anabiotic state. There are no methods and methods for modeling and processing large amounts of data. Moreover, there are no methods. which allow me to compare the dynamic development of various processes. Take any classic equation — it’s always limited by input parameters. Take statistics - this is really primitively structured information, which not only does not allow you to see real processes, but also does not allow you to see related processes. That is, we simply state the facts and that is very subjective and without taking into account the possibility of many such subjective assessments as multivariance.
    The spoken expression is a function of the constant value of a number, scientists are in a stupor. Nobody has any idea what it is. Moreover, everyone knows about the variable function of the value of a number. Therefore, everyone still uses the services of analysts, namely those people who are "just in the subject." Moreover, the analyst is not just at the level of fiction, since it practically does not have substantiated conclusions either on the direction of development and the influence of dominant factors, but also does not substantiate the levels of contrasting, symmetric, and other processes.

      I completely agree. You can only add that, having technical superiority and the most powerful supercomputers, the Americans have more or less learned to collect colossal amounts of information transmitted over communications vehicles, and to sort them primitively approximately as in Exel.

      But with real analysis and forecasting, it’s really a disaster. And not just them. What is the use, besides harm, in billions of terabytes of information piled up in a heap?

      Therefore, everyone still uses the services of analysts, namely those people who are "just in the subject"

      Probably the point here is that no one still knows by what cunning algorithm our brain works, which allows it (the one "who is in the subject") to pick out such chains of events, where connections become obvious only after the fact.
      Therefore, it is possible to endlessly increase the operating capacity of machines, but until the NECESSARY mathematical apparatus is created a breakthrough in this matter will not happen and talented analysts "sharpened" for the problem will always be in value. But how to evaluate them?

        Oh, it’s a great luck for me to come into contact with a person who understands the essence of the reasons for the inability to process big data and understand. that analytics is a very serious thing and is very important for the development of civilization. This is the first time I am touching a person. who understands that a modern computer is not able to create new models for the development of the process. It trite performs only those functions that are required of it.
        That's because you understand that a mathematical mechanism is needed, and we say that we have discovered such a unique opportunity not through expanding the possibilities of work of modern mathematical methods of analysis, but through comprehending the depth and varieties of possible new methods, namely, mathematical analysis. What does it mean ? What is necessary to take the basis of mathematics in the form of properties of a number. I want to note not the number itself, but its properties. And that's why we say that the number has a new and "unknown" function of its constant meaning, which clarifies the possibility of understanding how our brain and the brain of any living being and plants and animals work. Again, we are not talking about physiology or other aspects of the work of memory, consciousness, subconsciousness, etc. We are only talking about mathematics. This means that it is possible to understand the mechanism of the essence of the analysis as systemic, symmetric. an algorithmically transforming process, as well as in combination with the function of the vector of the development of processes, the potentials of the work of contrasting flows of information, as well as an understanding of the process, which is oriented relative to some benchmarks of such analysis. After all, analysis is never irrelevant. This means that these functions should work in the system. All this must be collected into a system. The variable function of number does not give even a fraction of this possibility. This function of the number makes it possible to state only particular solutions in the algorithm of the whole process. Moreover, the functions of the dynamics of the process itself are generally beyond the reach of analysis.

        I am always interested from the position of some understanding of the analysis mechanism, to consider the reasoning of each person speaking on this forum or others. Indeed, in every reasoning, one can see and this is obvious, the essence of the basis of such reasoning. Every person, reasoning, involuntarily conducts a test on himself. Since childhood, I have had games when you go out to people and simulate age. profession, other properties of people. The most important thing is not the game itself, but the fact that if you engage in it for a long period of time, then it develops new capabilities of your own brain for analysis. Motor skills are developed for analysis and, in fact, you stop making efforts. A "peripheral" perception arises, which the analysis does not proceed from two. three conditional parameters, and already from one. So it is with us. We discovered the method, and instantly saw the result of the influence of this method on our consciousness. But again, it is important that there is a possibility of understanding that the search for such methods through matrices, matroids, scale-invariant structures, etc. reveals them again as particular solutions in the possibility that we are considering.

    Europeans often looked at their citizens (recruits) traveling to Syria as fighters against the tyrant Assad, it was so beneficial for the United States and was hammered into their heads by all the world media.
    Citizens returning from Syria, sensing the taste of blood of thugs, were not prosecuted by the European authorities for mercenarism, religious intolerance and killings on foreign territory, also with the filing of the State Department.
    The European intelligence services in the fight against terrorism and illegal migration simply tied their hands, gentlemen from Brussels with the filing of Washington.
    It will be much easier for citizens of the European Union frightened by the terrorist threat to deprive of their personal freedoms and to keep in check like US citizens after 911.

      Thinking with your head is a complete abstraction in the definition of an action. Man can be taught the mechanism of analysis. In general, the higher education system is not intended to invest a complex of knowledge, but to enable it to work with information. Moreover, the higher the university is quoted, the higher the thresholds of overcoming mental stress. It is worth saying that in humans, the potential for brain work is fundamentally different in level and ability to process information, the ability to analyze contrasting information, as well as the duration of work. Therefore, you can be sure that the announcement is intended specifically for people who have completed higher education.
