Daniel Rosen, the State Department's Director of Counter Terrorism was arrested in a sting operation in Fairfax County, Virginia, for soliciting a minor for sex.
Fox News reported that the juvenile was actually a female detective posing as a minor in an operation with the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Child Exploitation Unit. The unit conducted the investigation and made the arrest, Caldwell said.This is no small player at State, no low-level flunky. His LinkedIn page says he is “responsible for all Counter Terrorism Bureau strategic planning, policy planning, program and budget planning and oversight, and legislative relations and interaction.” He adds that he “oversees $300 million per year in CT programs related to Countering Violent Extremism, Antiterrorism Assistance, Counterterrorism Financing, Counterterrorism Engagement and Regional Initiatives. Manages the Office of Plans and Policy including oversight of 20+ personnel.”
Like a large percentage of engineers, I spent some time in the "dark" world and have had my fair share of security clearances. They'll tell you that one of the main purposes of the background investigation is not to find out if you're really friends with Boris and Natasha, but to see if there are things in your background you can be easily blackmailed with. Do you think this guy could be compromised? Anyone at State with the tiniest particle of brain lodged in their skull has so know that Russia, Iran, and anyone politically against us is working full time at trying to find someone just like Director Rosen. How much of our counter terrorism defense has been compromised by having an evil perv in the office?
Unfortunately, as I tend to say, "Don't worry. It's not that bad. It's worse". Last year, The Blaze network's investigative reporting show, For The Record, ran an episode called "Honor Fight" about epic evil like this from top to bottom in the State Department. The episode featured whistle blowers who would only come forward to The Blaze after being assured the stories would really run (after proper checking of course; everyone knows that allegations like this against the Fed.gov will bring more lawyers than advertising your product with Mickey Mouse endorsing them). Watch this teaser for the show.
After he revealed that high level state department employees were involved in hiring prostitutes, and hiring children for sex while out of the country, John Kerry sued whistle blower Rick Higbie. If you're a whistle blower, as they say in the video, they will use every last lever at their disposal to break you and make your life miserable.
State Department officials soliciting children for sex? Ropes, rails and hot tar. Then the lamp posts.
