Counterterrorism Degrees
BS/MS in Counterterrorism Taught by Former CIA, FBI and SS
Do you suppose they really have former SS officers providing instruction to eager future torturers? Oh, I see it means 'Secret Service'! My mistake?

This might be too silly to post, but I tend to worry less about SS than SA because of two tiny data points for these hilarious initials: Over the decades I've met only three Secret Service agents; none embraced the politics of the Schutzstaffel. Over the decades I've met thousands of South Americans; two of them were unrepentant veterans of the Sturmabteilung.
