Might help if you posted some of the story instead of just a link.


And yes, it's a legit story.

re: Yahoo News reporting legendary CIA officer forced to retire
The guy has been the grim reaper for Middle Eastern bad guys for decades. He reached the maximum age allowed for non retired cia officers a while back but received a special extension. When the extension expired they didn’t approve him for another and he was forced to retire.

re: Yahoo News reporting legendary CIA officer forced to retire
From another site…

The CIA’s Iran chief, described by his colleagues as “legendary,” is being forced to retire as the center he oversees is folded back into the agency’s larger Middle East division, according to former CIA officials.

The official, Mike D’Andrea — nicknamed the “Dark Lord” or “Prince of Darkness” and known by the undercover name “Roger”— had been granted waivers that allowed him to continue working at the CIA past the mandatory retirement age, according to former agency officials. But the agency declined his most recent retirement exception, according to these officials. D’Andrea’s retirement was first reported by the New York Times.

“They decided not to extend him again,” said a former senior CIA official. “It was basically, ‘Look, you’re not going to go any higher, we need new thinking, we need new people,’ and so they eased him out. He didn’t volunteer.”

While I understand English is actually your second language, do you also not understand board etiquette?

Blind links are no bueno (pas bon, non bene, niche gut).

So the Biden regime seems to be giving Iran free reign to do as they wish. No surprise there.

B.S.. It’s called the “silent service” for a fricking reason and if one is legendary, you and I will never be in the know. Story is a plant for a specific purpose or bull shite of the finest kind.

I simply fail to understand how, in 2021, people still use this term.

I'm sure in the past, there was a such thing as a blind link but, in 2021, every link can be previewed without clicking.

Moreover, giving a link a descriptive name is meaningless. I could link midget porn but call it "CNN Admits there's Proof Obama used Intel Agencies to Spy on Republicans".

That link would be every bit as "blind" as the one you're complaining about.

For one of the "Link/Sauce?" contingency on anything that blows your pet narratives out of the water, you suck at this game.

Thank you Wasting Time!

In my years of posting here I have never seen a poster type out (and I most certainly have not) type out "Breaking News - Trump to announce whether he will run for election at news conference" and clicked on it and gotten something like animal porn or an ISIS website.

I think that paranoia here has come over from the regular Off-Topic site where people were doing that years ago (especially with the "Rick Roll" joke) but people don't do that here. I don't get the worry especially since people can see exactly where the link will go before they click on it.

I just presume people on this page on this boards are adult and courteous enough to not do rick roll crap. Plus other post blind links all the time.

Here are examples and for those of you who are wondering these are links to other pages on this very same tigerdroppings board.

Again, how?

How does describing the link reduce your chances of clicking something bad in ANY way?

It quite simply does not. How do people not know this in 2021?

I've already seen that I agree with Euro on basically nothing he's posted. But that doesn't make the "OMG, blind link" shite any less dumb
