      This is intriguing because it shows how much influence "one voice" can
      have. A guy says something - in this case, the CIA (talking) head
      offering what seems to be merely information or an opinion - and that
      something gets passed around and chewed on, digested by many other
      someones, and before long governments and institutions come crumbling
      down, all because that ONE GUY opened his big fat mouth.

      Maybe we ought to all take vows of silence, to prevent trouble.
