So now you DON'T think an overhaul is necessary? This is a bureaucracy, that change just cost two years. So you are the source, the same that offers no solution, just the platitude 'overhaul our intelligence agencies'. So firing the Director, sending Pompeo over to clean house, appoint a new director, cut their comms, root out their operations WW isn't an overhaul.
Do all intel agencies need the same? I mean obviously Mil Int since they screwed up Pearl Harbor, but we covered that. Which service? All? Their criminal division as well? DIA, DIS, Counter-intel? Well yeah, they do HUMINT and deal with scumbags. Between DIA/CIA there are over 40k employees. Numbers are estimated since the real ones are classified. NSA adds another 35-55k, and that is the big 3 there are 13 more.
Pretty tall one-sized fits all 'overhaul.
One final thought, as Stormin Norman opined, you fight with the army you have, not the one you want. The current fight is WW, let's cripple the intel side for an 'overhaul' in the middle of a fight. Like holding an IG inspection 30 min after H hour on D-Day.
I personally do not consider the current intel status quo anything close to Holy or optimum.
I also believe there are a number of ways to 'skin a cat.' Overhaul does not have to be disabling.
BTW, how is it--given that the major nations are either wholesale or significantly under the control of the globalist oligarchy--how is it that the purported enemies are so complicit in playing their globalist assigned roles?
i.e. They, too often, seem to work cooperatively with each other more than they work in support of their own citizens.
You seem to be a great defender of the status quo without offering any solutions for the horrific aspects of the status quo. Some how that continues to underwhelm me.
Good points all. And arm chair quarterbacking ideas may not be applicable on the field.
You really do get lost in details, don’t you?
Of course details are necessary, but only for tactics and strategy. Not for policy and philosophy, which are assessed on a general scale. The inclination and ability to focus on detail corresponds with particular personality traits. Ditto for focusing on the general scale, such as analyzing entire systems.
In other words, some are good at focusing on detail but not good at expanded thinking. Others are good at analyzing the big picture while focusing on detail does not come naturally to them. Some might be good at both. At this point, it could be you’re mostly in the detail-oriented category.
So the major point here is that on a general scale, the good works produced by intelligence agencies is overwhelmed by the problems they cause.
