The CIA’s ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ Photo Fail

Biden’s intel chief would do well to recruit some old KGB photo fakers.

In what amounts to a fitting metaphor for the Biden/Harris regime’s “diversity, equity, and inclusion” façade comes a new report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

The report cover, prepared by the ODNI’s Office of Intelligence Community Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion — yes, there is one — includes a stock commercial photo labeled “Portrait Of Multi-Cultural Office Staff Standing In Lobby,” which was then badly altered to include a woman in a wheelchair and a blind guy with his dog. When I note “badly altered,” I mean it’s in the running for the most ill-conceived photo alteration failure in CIA history. The old Soviet KGB’s photo alterations of 50 years ago were far superior.

Just as pretentious, on the inside of the report, Biden’s director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, declared, “The Intelligence Community should reflect the diverse makeup of America and demonstrate that we are fostering an environment where every professional can succeed.” She added: “Promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is fundamental to our democratic values and critical to meeting the IC’s mission.”

That is a load of bull pucky. “Diversity, equity, and inclusion” is “fundamental” only to promoting the Democrat Party’s race-hustling agenda.

The photo fail was an instant hit on social media, with one observer noting, “Things like this make you pray there actually is a shadow government running things.” Another said, “No one in this super-diverse office appears to be over 35.”
