Mr. Obama sketched four steps the intelligence community will take: assigning specific responsibility for following leads on terror threats; distributing intelligence reports more rapidly; strengthening the analytical process; and enhancing the criteria used to add people to terror watch lists.
I have a couple of questions:
How is what he proposes any different from what’s being done now?
How is that different from simply ordering people what to do?, or, as Drew points out,
So far it sounds like he’s saying, “I’ve directed we do things better”. Ah well, if only we had thought of that sooner.
He says he’s going to hold people accountable when they screw up but this time no one was directly responsible but the system failed. So, um, no one is held accountable if everyone is at fault? Ok.
But hey, at least he said we’re at war with al-Qaeda.
