    and it wouldn't make any difference at all. What are they going to do? Produce a report? Report meet wastebasket.

    The intelligence community reports to the president. The president makes policy, the president gives the orders, the president is ultimately responsible. They'll do whatever the president orders them to do.

    This whole thing is silly. President Obama has the intelligence community he wants...either by design or by neglect. Either way, whatever he decides is all that matters. Not these silly 'advisory panels.'
