    How many times have you posted this exact same diary now this week?  A dozen?  Or just half that?  Either way, please stop.

      And the problem is sitting there with no indication that strong quality control is in the works.

      Having another Harvard Law guy in there as Director of NCTC -- not an indicator of much in the way of kick-ass.

      That is Michael Leiter.

      He's also the one who wrote up a dishonest OpEd defending the broken RAILHEAD PROJECT.

      Do you have an idea of what the next big No Fly List screw-up is going to do ???

      This is important and word needs to get out.  

      The writing leads something to be desired -- it's way too long, the formatting is unhelpful, and it's not always clear what the meaty bits are.

      But the ideas are great and the software critique is convincing.

      Maybe break it up into shorter diaries coming from sections, like part 1 is how we know it's broken, part 2 is how they blew it, part 3 is how a fix would look, and so on.

      •  This is written for the offices of the National (0+ / 0-)

        Security Advisor and the Director of National Intelligence.

        They can call GTSI, RAND, or CACI needs be get somebody to read it for them.

        I don't trust anything about how the current system scores people. Look at the comments, today, for CIA meddling that let known hard-core Islamicists avoid the "special handling" that goes with getting tagged to the No Fly List.

        CIA screws the pooch for protecting airline passengers. Over and over again.
