In-Q-Tel is a venture capitalist corporation chartered in 1999 with the permission of the Director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the Directorate of Science and Technology. The Directorate of Science is one division inside the CIA. If you would like to read more about IQT, just google or bing In-Q-Tel. It is public knowledge, although I am not sure that it should be.
The question that should be asked is why does the CIA operate IQT? The answer is that the CIA needs new and innovative software to analize information gathered from radio transmissions, visual images, and cell phone intercepts. If placed in written form, the information gathered by U.S. Intelligence would fill every page of every book in the U.S. Library of Congress EVERY THREE HOURS. This intelligence gathering continues every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day, of every week, of every year. Unfortunately, almost all of this information is worthless unless it is “analized for meaningful content” in a timely manner.
I wish the CIA well in their work. Same for the DIA, NSA, Department of Homeland Security, etc. However, I would like to offer a common sense suggestion. The U.S. Congress, which many sane people consider to be the biggest whorehouse in the world, could pass sensible legislation to regulate the U.S. – Mexican Border. By sending the President sensible legislation, we could regulate our Southern Border and make America much safer.
While it is true that most Mexicans who cross the U.S. Border are only poor people looking for work, the open border is an open invitation to drug dealers and terrorists to enter our country. So the question remains, why will Congress and the President not fix this problem? The answer of course is money. Some very rich corporations in the U.S. do not wish to employ American workers and pay them the minimum wage, and provide social security, and possibly health care. It is cheaper to “hire” illegal immigrants and pay them slave wages. After all, these same corporations give “contributions” to both the Democrat Crooks and the Republican Crooks in our corrupt U.S. Congress. Also, these corporations are very generous and set up Political Action Committees (PAC’s) in their corporations to donate additional funds to the Congressional Crooks who are willing to commit treason against the American People!
