Such high frequency of scandals testifies to another outburst of anti-espionage activities in the USA. The first stage of the espionage-mania occurred in the 1950s, and became known in history as the period of "McCarthyism" when US special agents were jailing a lot of people for their reluctance to see Russian spies practically everywhere. The mastermind of the "anti-spying campaign," Congressman Joseph McCarthy, eventually turned out to be a corrupt, alcohol-addicted official.(via Blondsense)
The CIA's and FBI's "success" in the struggle against spies can probably be interpreted as an attempt of the services to put a good face on things against the harsh criticism of unprofessional work in connection with the investigation of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. More and more reports about the background of the horrendous attacks surface in the USA, casting doubts on the official version of the tragedy.
