The agency joined the image-sharing site this week with a photograph that has left users scratching their heads.

"The time on the clock for example is 8:46 - the same exact time that the first hijacked plane hit the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001."

Why on earth would they want to reference that? That was hardly their proudest achievement was it

You’re right, dude. What the hell?

I've heard the CIA reported their pre-9/11 findings/concerns to the White House...But Cheney/Bush did nothing about the intel.

What was he supposed to do?  Also, they never said they were going to fly airliners into buildings.  Bill Clinton had at least two opportunities to capture Bin Laden but he refused.

CIA Funds Facebook (2007)

Spoiler

The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999. One of the company's key areas of expertise are in "data mining technologies".

Facebook buys Instagram (2012)

Looks like the CIA is getting bored at work

Isn't it endearing how you manage to turn any criticism of George W into it being Obama or in this case, Clinton's fault ^_^

That's what they've all been programmed to do. It's like a trigger.

It was Clinton's fault, he had 8 years to deal with Bin Laden and opportunities to capture Bin Laden and did nothing, Bush had 11 months.  This doesn't exonerate Bush but it damns Clinton.

It appears to be a bit of a p*** take against conspiracy theorists . I mean the “top secret “ stamp sitting on top of the files, it’s a rediculous set up of what some might actually believe a CIA agents desk would look like. Particularly nice touch showing off the shredded paper.

perhaps it is a CIA mind tool designed to help spot trouble makers online? Or potential agents?

Now I am off to count inverted pyramids 

Edit: not shredded paper a wig, I guess I didn’t pass the test either way :(

Even if they had known that terrorists were going to use planes as weapons against the US we couldn't have done anything because if you looked at 18 to 35-year-old Arabic people the liberals would have had a wall-eyed fit about the racial profiling.

The clock is set to the wrong time. Don't they know all clocks need to be set to 10:10?
