Clapper: Shutdown Is “Dreamland” for Foreign Intel

james-clapperWhile most of the country is feeling the negative effects of the government shutdown, a precious few are benefitting from it. Among the lucky ones: international intelligence agencies looking to recruit money-hungry Americans.

“This is a dreamland for foreign intelligence services to recruit,” said National Intelligence Director James Clapper at a Senate hearing today.

Beyond potential recruitments, Clapper warned that the furlough of 70 percent of civilians may pose a threat to national security.

“I think this … seriously damages our ability to protect the security and safety of this nation and its citizens,” Clapper said. “This is not just a Beltway issue. This affects our global capability.”

    We Cried and We Cried

    I want to tell you that Zaidy came to me again from Olam Ha’emes. (My Zaidy, a great Tzaddik, was very famous when he was alive.) I want to tell you that he sat down next to me when I was sleeping, and said to me, “Yingel Yingel my Zeesa Yingel (my beloved boy) I am so proud of you. I am so happy that you are in the house that you are, in the home that you are, and I Bentch you that you should continue bringing truth to our family and truth to the Yidden wherever they might be.”

    And then he said, “I have more to tell you. I am very worried about my adopted homeland the United States of America. I am not worried about the place itself, as we all know its pure Edom. I have always realized how this Golus of Edom has almost destroyed all Yiddishkeit in America.

    “But no I am not worried about the Edomite country called the United States. I am worried about the Yidden in United States. First of all they are in very big physical danger and of course we know very well that the Yidden in America, including the Frum, are in great spiritual and physical danger. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule, but the very big majority of the Yidden in America are in very big spiritual danger.

    “Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that the Yidden all over the world are in a better condition, but I am worried especially about the Yidden in the United States of America.

    “I really want them to do Teshuva, real Teshuva. And I know that I have said this many times, and people don’t understand what I am talking about. Even when you explain it so clearly, most people just brush it off because it’s much more interesting to be busy with the Gashmius than to be busy with the Ruchnius. It take less spiritual and emotional effort to rise high in the attainment of the Gashmius, than it takes to rise high in the attainment of the Ruchnius.

    “Since I was very young I realized that the American Jewish community would eventually disappear. Now however I see clearly that the United States of America is disappearing right in front of our eyes. Soon there will be no United States of America, and the Yidden will have to find themselves a new home. I hope they decide on Eretz Yisroel, and hope they do it quickly, because if not well……. ”

    Then he asked me to sit down with him and say Tikkun Chatzos. Together we Davened and we cried, and we cried, and we cried. I closed my eyes so I could feel the Tza’ar HaShechina, (the pain of Hashem) and when I opened them my Zaidy was gone.

  2. Isn’t General Clapper the same individual who stated in the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) a few years ago that the Muslim Brotherhood was a political organization with no ties to terrorism? Just curious if his statement here has the same political motivation as the one made in the NIE.
