Speaking of Spies...

Some intelligence news going on today:

A new Congressional plan for the structure of the National Intelligence Director's office is being discussed. It would place a four-star general in the directorate as the key liason between the intelligence community and the military.

There is some criticism of the latest report on the state of American intelligence capabilities -
because the report states what went wrong, but not why.

Quoting Mr. Meyer in National Review Online: "When we have an intelligence failure, it's because one of three things went wrong: The collectors didn't gather up the dots, the dots were collected but never reached the analysts, or the analysts were provided with the dots but then failed to see the pattern those dots formed. So every failure is either a failure of collection, a failure of organization, or a failure of analysis — or a combination thereof."

Finally, the biggest news is that an indictment has been made against three men, accusing them of plotting attacks against American financial institutions. (Remember that alert? Seems there was something to it after all...)

I say screw GPS, it's too expensive. Let's just track people with the wonder gadget the bad guys have.

I like Dots. They're so chewy and fruitful. And you get to enjoy them for hours on end because they get lodged in your teeth.

What I want to know is why we can't just hire Jack Ryan and the Splinter Cell guys.
