I ran across this story from August 29, 2011 (in my mail box, sent to me by a reader), which is remarkably like what I am being told is going on in DSS (Defense Security Service).
Note similarities, those of you familiar with the problems DSS seems to be propagating at an alarming rate:
Managers pushing out senior employees who have the knowledge, training and experience to do the job in order to make room for often unprepared, untrained, equally incompetent cronies from another work environment. Cronyism can be hiring relatives, or can be hiring members of a same church, college class, club, or military service branch etc. It does seem like DSS is having more than its share of such problems.
It seems like within DSS, as in this story, some crony seeking managers like people around who can spy on other employees for them, and be loyal to the manager in charge, even if they aren’t capable of doing the job they ostensibly were hired to do. In the case of DSS, how is this helping DSS protect our technology and oversee government contracts? (Answer: It’s not! But it may well be meeting the goals of certain defense contractors who don’t want any oversight anyway.) GFS
