Bulgaria: Security Services “Do Not Serve the Public”

Maya M of Maya's Corner comments on today's deadly bus explosion in the Bulgarian city of Burgas: “[...] While I understand that even the best intelligence can overlook the preparation of a terror act, I am angry, because our “services” are overstaffed and overfunded. They have generous subsidies even in the worst crisis, they receive more than the entire Bulgarian Academy of Sciences just to monitor telephone communications… and still they do not serve the public (to say the least) and do not provide the security which is their function.”
