CIA in UK Anthropology Classes

Times: CIA outrages UK academics/anthropologists

The Pat Roberts Intelligence Scholars Program (Prisp) funded anthropology students by up to $50,000 each through undergraduate courses if they agreed to work for the US intelligence services when they graduate

The only thing that surprises me: didn’t we expect this to be done anyway? We’re being told that the CIA reads our work and that they’ve taken anthro classes. Aren’t people allowed to take our classes even if their goals clashes with the goals of the discipline?
