  •  To some extent it can be good. (7+ / 0-)

    Having all of the intelligence under one "hat" makes it too easy for that one "hat" to limit what the rest of government can know.  Also, some agencies have different intelligence needs, so to some extent the different intel shops do different tasks.  But in general I agree with you ... the National Security Branch has grown far too dominant in our government.

    Good morning! ::huggggggggggs::

      I can do tunnel vision with the best of 'em.  I don't like all the secrecy but I understand the need.  I get so mad when things upon which we spend so much money, where people risk their lives for us, don't run right.  I've been on a soapbox since I woke up at 4:30  CDT.  Maybe I should climb down for awhile :-)

        ... so I understand how you feel.  And I definitely need to climb down.  I'm so relieved that tomorrow is the Ask Ms. Crissie humor Morning Feature, and that plf515 and kktlaw will be doing Morning Features on Tuesday and Wednesday, so I can take an extra day off next week.  This week has been more difficult than usual.  So yeah, let's climb off those soap boxes and take a breather. :)

        Good morning! ::hugggggggs::
