That's only the people who try to cover up their shame and awkwardness 
by "getting offended". They should be offended by things like this

http://www.counterpunch.org/boles1010.html
http://www.counterpunch.org/green02242003.html
http://www.laweekly.com/ink/03/23/news-crogan.php

which is an important part of what Marc was talking about because that 
was the reason why said shady intelligence was necessary in the first 
place. I think that is more broken pride than offense.
