Who would be interested in the type of person that has all of the above qualities and could be considered "informed ambassadors of the nations and cultures where they served"?  The CIA, perhaps?   The following is a quote from Wallace Turner. He was a writer for the New York Times that had written articles on "corporate corruption" within the LDS church and other such issues. New York Times, Sep, 16th 1974   Many Mormon scholars work on contracts for the C.I.A  Here we have an intelligence agency that operates in many countries across the globe that would be in need of people that were intelligent, faithful, educated and were familiar with foreign languages and cultures. The LDS missionary program itself does all of the legwork to "groom" such an asset. But is there any reason to believe such a connection exists? This is where things get interesting.   The Robert Mullen Company was founded by, of course, Robert R. Mullen in 1952. It was a public relations firm based in DC that provided services for groups such as the American Automobile Association, American Bar Association and even the LDS Church. In 1971, the company was taken over by Robert Foster Bennett.   Bennett was a Republican Senator for Utah from 1993 to 2011 and was the grandson of Heber Grant, a former president of the LDS Church and Bennett's wife was the grand-daughter of a former LDS Church president. One year after Bennett took over at Mullen, the company was involved in a scandal that eventually led to the resignation of Nixon.....the Watergate Scandal. Howard Baker, a Senator and member of the Watergate Committee produced a report that stated the following: www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread996855/pg1 Anti-Corruption Media: FBI Corruption 10 most crooked things http://theantimedia.org/fbi-corruption-history-10-most-crooked-things/ Excerpt:  (TFC) Washington, D.C. — Though the FBI is often credited with solving crimes, the bureau’s assistance comes at a cost.

By The Atlas Obscura http://www.ldsliving.com/Why-Mormons-Make-Great-FBI-Recruits-How-the-FBI-Mormon-Mafia-Myth-Began/s/80479 Excerpt: But there’s at least one place in American society where Mormons have found an unusual degree of acceptance—in agencies like the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the CIA, which see Mormons as particularly desirable recruits and have a reputation for hiring a disproportionate number of people who belong to the church. While this comes as a surprise to most people, in Washington and particularly among people who work with or report on intelligence and law enforcement, it’s common knowledge. And occasionally it leaks into popular culture: In his 2009 memoir Agent Bishop, Mike McPheters describes his years doubling as a FBI agent and Mormon bishop—a community leadership position he inherited from another FBI agent. http://www.ldsliving.com/Why-Mormons-Make-Great-FBI-Recruits-How-the-FBI-Mormon-Mafia-Myth-Began/s/80479 Liberation News: FBI spying on college students with financial aid (06/09/2008) https://www.liberationnews.org/06-09-08-fbi-spying-on-college-students-w-html/ Linked In: History of Corrupt Culture in the FBI-DOJ.

It adversely affects national security and the lives of America’s people. No form of reorganization will correct this problem without exposing the pattern of criminal and even subversive activities that I and my dozens of government insiders discovered during hundreds of years of cumulative experience.  Forget everything you were taught or felt about integrity, honesty, guilt or innocence in the FBI and other divisions of the U.S. Department of Justice. Forget everything you may have heard about people sentenced to prison deserving what they got. The integrity of many who have been sentenced to federal prison is far greater than many Justice Department prosecutors whose misconduct constitutes major crimes and would be punishable if they were ordinary citizens.  Deeply Embedded Justice Department Culture:  The Justice Department culture is political, corrupt, and extremely dangerous to the people. The people in control of the awesome Justice Department power are responsible for human tragedies far beyond anyone’s comprehension. The Justice Department, under the U.S. Attorney General, includes the Solicitor General, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the U.S. attorneys, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), U.S. Marshals (USMS), and Bureau of Prisons (BP). https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140904183703-29817943-history-of-corrupt-culture-in-the-fbi-doj MSNBC:  Trump raises corruption allegations against FBI’s McCabe http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/trump-raises-corruption-allegations-against-fbis-mccabe New York Post: Clinton Ally gave $500k to wife of FBI agent on email probe.

There were rumors of corruption in the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office and whispers that Lann Tjuan Clanton, an ex-cop from a nearby police department, was selling drugs in the hardscrabble eastern half of the Tar Heel State.  So in April 2013, the FBI opened an undercover investigation that had agents posing as drug traffickers looking for law enforcement officers who could act as armed guards for people moving drugs and drug money up and down the East Coast. The bureau called the secret probe Operation Rockfish, a bottom-feeding fish for which the county is well known. By the end of the investigation, a dozen law enforcement officers would plead guilty to drug conspiracy and bribery raps, with long sentences handed down last week. http://www.newsweek.com/law-enforcement-corruption-fbi-crooked-cops-jail-guards-drug-smuggling-627282 Patheos:  Mormons and the FBI – A Bleg.   April 30, 2014 by Matthew Bowman http://www.patheos.com/blogs/peculiarpeople/2014/04/mormons-and-the-fbi-a-bleg/ Reuters:  By Richard Rashke (03/06/2013) http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/03/06/the-fbis-shameful-recruitment-of-nazi-war-criminals/ Slate:  The Latest Clinton-FBI Corruption Allegation Looks More Legitimate Than Usual.

A naturalized Filipino-American,[1] he was charged with espionage and with leaking classified information to the regime of a former Filipino president.  The FBI labeled Aragoncillo the first known case of espionage within the history of the White House. For over thirty-one months, from 1999 to 2001, Aragoncillo was assigned under Vice President Al Gore and then later under Vice President Dick Cheney.  Hired to work for the FBI at the Army's Ft. Monmouth base in New Jersey in July 2004, Aragoncillo began sending classified documents in January 2005, according to a federal complaint.  On October 5, 2005, Aragoncillo was indicted and arrested in New Jersey for espionage. Federal agents accused him of stealing classified information, including details about the current President of the Philippines, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and then passing that information onto opposition leaders in the Philippines.  According to reports compiled by Filipino intelligence professionals, there were indications of a link between Aragoncillo and the French intelligence service, Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure. Frequent visits by Aragoncillo to Manila allegedly were interspersed with clandestine meetings between identified, French operatives and several "illegals" (i.e. unregistered agents) around 2002 to 2004. https //en wikipedia org/wiki/Leandro_Aragoncillo Miller, RIchard Wikipedia https://en wikipedia org/wiki/Richard_Miller_(agent) Excerpt: On October 3, 1984, Miller was arrested with Svetlana and Nikolai Ogorodnikov, Russian immigrants who had moved to Los Angeles in 1973 to seek refuge, but who were actually access agents of the Soviet KGB. Miller was alleged to have provided classified documents, including an FBI Counterintelligence manual, to the Ogorodnikovs after demanding $50,000 in gold and $15,000 cash in return. Miller, who had eight children and was faced with financial difficulties, was having an affair with the married Svetlana Ogorodnikov, and was preparing to travel with her to Vienna at the time of his arrest. It was later alleged that Svetlana Ogorodnikov had been in touch with a KGB case officer working out of the Soviet Consulate in San Francisco and had made arrangements for Miller to meet with the KGB in Vienna.  After his arrest, a fuller portrait emerged of Miller. According to various news accounts, Miller occasionally took three-hour "lunches" at the 7-Elevens near his Los Angeles office, gorging himself on stolen candy bars while reading comic books. He was alleged to have cheated his own uncle by selling a muscle-relaxant device he'd patented, and skimmed cash from bureau coffers meant for one of his informants. Miller also ran auto-registration checks and searched FBI criminal indexes for a local private investigator at $500 per search. In early 1984, the LDS Church excommunicated Miller for adultery. He was divorced from his wife, Paula Miller (now renamed Hill), in late 1988. Following his release, he re-located to Northern Utah. He re-married Tamara Lewis (now Miller) September 23, 1995.[citation needed] https://en wikipedia org/wiki/Richard_Miller_(agent) Harold Rico https: //en wikipedia org/wiki/H._Paul_Rico Rico was an FBI agent. Indicted for murder in 2003, he played a significant role in the 1968 framing of four men for murder, unjustly imprisoning them for decades.

Agents Faced Arrest and Ruin After Trying to Conceive a Child.  By Adam Goldman (10/28/2017) https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/28/us/politics/fbi-matt-litton-fertility.html Excerpt: Matthew Litton, a former Army officer and member of the F.B.I.’s elite Hostage Rescue Team, choked up as he sat in a courtroom in Virginia earlier this year, questioned by his lawyer about his infertility problems. The hearing was Mr. Litton’s last best hope to get his F.B.I. job back and convince an administrative judge that he had been wrongly fired for failing to disclose the drugs he had taken to treat his disorder.  “It’s extremely embarrassing private information,” Mr. Litton testified in January. He began to cry, an unusually emotional moment for a taciturn man who served lengthy tours hunting Qaeda militants in Afghanistan as a Green Beret and later insurgents in Iraq as an F.B.I. agent.  Late last month, the judge ruled in his favor, ordering the F.B.I. to reinstate Mr. Litton and turn over part of his back pay, which totals more than $700,000. On Friday, the F.B.I. appealed the judge’s decision, contending that it was riddled with errors.Mr. Litton knew it would be difficult. Since the early 1990s, he had periodically seen blood in his urine and semen, and he had received a diagnosis of sterility from Army doctors in 1997. He joined the F.B.I. in 2001 and hoped that a job with more stability would allow him time to deal with his infertility, but after the Sept. 11 attacks, he was recalled to active duty, leading a seven-man Army Special Forces team in Afghanistan. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/28/us/politics/fbi-matt-litton-fertility.html http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/15/us/fbi-arrests-flds-leader-lyle-jeffs/index.html https://www.deseretnews.com/article/865576699/Wright-Words-Mormon-FBI-agent-risks-job-life-to-rescue-brother.html
