We all know that ONI has done some....questionable activities throughout the events of Halo, such as the Spartan programs, and that a lot of ONI operatives, such as Parangosky, Ackerson, and Standish, are more or less a bunch of traitorous assholes that would not hesitate to quite literally backstab their "allies" for personal glory.
Of course, the real jem in this "treasure of assholery" is during the events of Glasslands. I haven't read the book yet, but I did read that Parangosky's having her lackeys work with some elite rebels to help kill Thel 'Vadam. Not only did Thel help humanity survive, but he's the guy that wants humanity's continued survival. And the guy that ONI's helping wants to kill Thel because he "spread lies about their religion"; which means he wants to activates the Halos. Betraying the guy that wants peaceful relations and instead siding with the guy that wants to wipe out all life in the galaxy not only showed that Parangosky's the personification of corruption and treachery, but also failed to take into account the long-term consequences of her "evil scheme".
Does anyone else agree with this?
