Little question

What’s in a name? NYT:

Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.

The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.

The name, a reference to the Rolling Stones lyric “I was born in a crossfire hurricane,” was an apt prediction of a political storm that continues to tear shingles off the bureau.

If you’ve got the FBI and CIA and all their foreign equivalents and Clapper and Brennan and Comey, etc., doing the nastiness, we suppose the name makes sense, though we think there’s a better name for what those 3 clowns were doing.

    Above all else, the public sector is a racket for the enrichment of insiders, cronies, bureaucrats and interest groups.
