Murdered EVE Online Player Was A CIA Agent, According To The Infinite Wisdom Of Glenn Beck

Continuing his blossoming love affair with the video game community, conservative pundit Glenn Beck has waded into the tragic events surrounding the death of State Department employee Sean Smith in Libya earlier this month.

Not to pay his respects, though. He’s bringing it up to accuse Smith and his colleagues of either working with the CIA or of being CIA agents, and that some of Smith’s final messages to the outside world – which were sent to members of the EVE Online community – were actually coded, and intended for the CIA.

…and he noticed that they’re watching all three [exits]. What does he do? Nah, he doesn’t call the White House, he doesn’t call the State Department, the, uh, embasssy in Tripoli. He calls a gaming website. Which is the first thing I would do. I’m like, I gotta check with my pals on the gaming website. And he writes: “We’re in Benghazi. At a safehouse. If we get out of this one alive, I’ll let you know. There are people watching all three exits.” Gang… he’s not telling his friendly gamers. He’s a CIA agent. He is telling people — this is where we are, help us! …

Because, you know. The CIA wouldn’t use secure transmissions or code. They’d just happen to be scanning for literal calls for help on video game message boards.
