#4 I realize that it's disturbing to read that this kind of gamesmanship takes place at the upper levels of our intelligence service.
BLUF: The engire Klingon organization needs an extreme makeover.
Information is power, and we all know what power can eventually create. Witholding information or providing watered down or incorrect assessments assisted in bringing us 9/11 (and quite possibly some of the crap that happened yesterday). Little wonder Rumsfeld set up his own intelligence assessment cell within the Pentagon. Parallel government decision making stuctures are not needed. Good artikel, but I never trusted the bastids anyway. I never trust anyone who says:
"No need to count it, I've got all the money and I've got your 0600."

#5 It's been my experience that when people tell you they are going to do bad things to you, they mean it. Moreover, when they start to do things that indicate they are going to do bad things to you, do what you have to do quickly, decisively, and overwhelmingly.
