Beware the truism shared at the very beginning of Tim Weiner’s, “Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA” …. which is a very uncomfortable read for Uncle Sam natives and immigrants alike, for it paints a dire picture of home grown intelligence efforts from which nothing intelligent has been learned …… thus the current expanding collapsing state of their present global affairs and national institutions ‽ .
“There are no secrets that time does not reveal.”—Jean Racine, Britannicus (1669)
And as one cannot stop time nor the much more intelligent use of an extremely obvious quite alien space for y’all, with ITs safe and secured spaces populated by learned others well versed in the Noble and Intimate Arts of Stealthy Informative Sharing of Advanced Intelligence Services …… a truly explosive time to be living in …… and something wonderfully easily plausibly denied as being presently possible and a current difficulty and catastrophic vulnerability to be actively addressed and exploited and expanded, as in further developed and improved upon, by any spokesperson ready, willing and able or enabled to comment on both or from either side of that very particular and peculiar fence.
And yes, surely does that suggest there is an incredible amount of stuff you have still yet to find and learn powerful lessons from …. which you can also deny be true and take temporary miserable cold comfort from, which appears to be an all too relevant human weakness deployed to be ruthlessly and relentlessly exploited to full body exhaustion.

A Semantic Web Developer writes in …… and questions an answer ?
Is that then indicative of the rise of the consultant vapourware agent in the new age style of a financial market expert?
I can’t see that as being enormously contestable in many ways, but it is sure to be implausibly denied [:-) as may be shown with a number of down votes here on this thread comment on El Reg, although without further contextual textual clarification accompanying any disagreement is such an opportunity for the sharing of an alternate wisdom immediately lost and presently squandered]
Some folk just have far too much time on their hands and not enough wit to use it in these spaces and media places constructively.
