Preparing for the Worst-Case Scenario

A 30-year veteran of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) recently attended one of our farm tours. I’m known as the lunatic farmer, so these 2.5-hour hayride trips are affectionately called “Lunatic Tours.”

I had never heard of the DIA. I learned it’s an agency made up of spooks who oversee all the other American spooks and interact with spooks from other countries. In other words, the DIA is the umbrella agency that coordinates all of our intelligence efforts.

I can’t begin to remember all the things this recent retiree told me, but let’s just say he pinned my ears back for a while.

A couple of things stand out. One is that the spooks knew about COVID-19 long before it became a thing – up to a year in advance. They knew it was coming, they knew where it was coming from and they knew about the whole planned pandemic narrative – pretty much everything.

One key takeaway is that the rest of us mere mortals don’t know much.
