U.S. intelligence community, which has 107,035 employees.

I wonder how many of those employees are hired just to spy on other employees?
No Such Agency has a lot of people!
How many of those folks work as reporters and editors for the MSM? From what I heard, it’s more than you might expect. I heard there are even a few neoconservative GOPer journalists working for Obama. Hint, see if you can find any GOPer reporters supporting a Syrian War. This is when Obama asks them to step up to the plate.
"BACK TO WORK!"
I think it comes to around 1 spy for every 3000 people in America. That’s a lot of spooks. But, when you add in all the people in the world it comes to around 1 per 70,000. That’s a lot of snooping for one person. However, consider they have access to the most powerful computers in the world and the ratio is still scary.
And all of them KNOW NOTHING about Bengazi.
The election suggests that out of 300,000,000 people in the U.S. there are only about 145,000,000 with intelligence.

Not much of an intelligence community if we can find out how many employees are actually employed by the intelligence community.
they dont appear to have very good security or much in the way of management do they...
Selective intelligence was never more meaningful! or perhaps better put selective ignorance.
I await the data.....on their collective SALARIES
Im pondering the great likelihood that the number represented does not adequately represent vast number of spooks thusly employed.
mid level spooks?
Nothing about the Boston Bombers either - well nothing that stopped the slaughter... and nothing about the Fort Hood wacko... Oh - and the TSA has NOT caught ONE terrorist... not one....
Yep, we're getting our money's worth.
How many unpaid interns?
On the bright side, they know what you had for dinner...
And volunteers from Obamas Citizen Army?
Well, let’s see now. The population of the US is 311,591,917 according to the most recent census. There are 107,035 intelligence employees. Let’s make it simple (after all, this IS government work) and say 300 million and 100 thousand. So that is 3E8 / 1E5 or 3E3. So you have 3,000 people per employee. See how easy that is?
Sleep comfortably knowing you almost have your own personal agent acting as your guardian angel.
Indeed, the number of just over 100,000 intelligence “employees” grossly understates the total amount of manpower being marshaled and deployed. The WaPo article notes the CIA alone now has 21,575 “case officers,” up from 17,000 10 years ago. It also credits the CIA with $14.7 billion of budgeted spending in FY 2013, or about 28% of the total $52.6 billion reported. That’s almost $700,000 of CIA spending per case officer. Clearly, the published total of IC employees must only include the on-payroll (W-2 reporting) government staff. There must be two or three times that many people running around as unofficial “assets” being paid per diem or in casual ways for the work they do.
Took so many to find an IQ point?
Define “Intelligence Community”
There 16 different agencies which all have an intelligence aspect to them falling into several jurisdictions such as the DOD, the DOJ, DOS, the Treasury department and so . Actually, I’m surprised the number of employees isn’t higher.

Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
National Security Agency (NSA)
National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)
