The job of intelligence services is not to say nice things about people. It's to grasp at straws so there's a haystack ready the next time they need to find a needle. I grew up in a nuclear weapons lab. My father had access to plutonium. I haven't asked to see my FBI file but I know beyond a reasonable doubt I have one.

So far, it hasn't interfered with my life one iota.
