    … lulled into assuming U.S.-MIC-branded secret power structures are well-intentioned and necessary, while automatically assuming the opposite of similar operations that carry the wrong national "brand."

    In the long run, the only Wikileaks-type operations the CIA and other such agencies will tolerate is one under their own strict control.
