You're the leader!': Dominic Perrottet is GRILLED by Leigh Sales in his first major TV interview as he refuses to cast judgement over Gladys Berejiklian's secret five-year relationship which ended her career
The C.I.A. has lost dozens of informants — to death, to arrest, or to double-crossing — in the last several years, the intelligence service warned internally in a recent “top secret” cable that was then immediately leaked to the New York Times.
Some of the C.I.A.’s informant problems are probably somewhat unique to the nature of running a tool for U.S. imperialism: officers being tracked by rival foreign intelligence services using such technology as facial recognition and artificial intelligence, sources being hunted down and turned into double agents for other countries, and those double agents then feeding disinformation to the C.I.A.

Friends and family started working from home, but I was still required to go into the office throughout March, April, May…
