Insiders say a multimillion dollar McKinsey-fueled overhaul of the countrys intelligence community has left it less effective. Dan McCready, congressional candidate in North Carolina worked for McKinsey.
McKinsey has secured close to $1 billion in government contracts in just the past 10 years. Its work with the intelligence community goes back at least a decade the firm played a central role in helping the FBI transform its intelligence mission in 2005 in response to pressure from the White House to restructure the bureaus budget.
They were receiving a generous consulting fee, but did not appear from my vantage to bring any particular expertise to the task, said Stephen Slick, a veteran intelligence official who served as the National Security Councils senior director for intelligence programs and reform in 2005.
With the more recent intelligence community restructuring, officials have also been vexed by what appears to be a lack of a competitive bidding process McKinsey seemed to seamlessly transition from working with CIA, to NSA, to ODNI via no-bid contracts, these people said, despite lingering skepticism over the firms effectiveness.

At CIA, they shattered longstanding structural constructs that people had invested their whole careers in, said Larry Pfeiffer, a 32-year intelligence veteran who now serves as the director of the Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy and International Security at George Mason University. It resulted in a coordination nightmare widely considered to be very heavy-handed, added Pfeiffer, who left government before the restructuring but remains in close contact with current officials.
Pfeiffer said he doesnt know a soul at CIA or NSA who would tell you that the reorganizations have made things better.
He is also running as a Democrat. Who is going to hold a rally for him, Elizabeth Warren?
Per the article
“McKinsey has also produced some of Americas most high-profile corporate executives, including Facebooks Sheryl Sandberg and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, not to mention Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Ind.”
He is the reason Trump is going to NC today. To beat this DEEP STATE Democrat candidate.
What spy or intelligence operative anywhere would feel secure if he or she knew that their true identity and activities were entered into a computer data base however “secure”. Security is a delusional myth in huge organizations such as the Pentagon, CIA, NSA and the FBI.
“After earning his MBA in 2011 from Harvard, McCready worked for a year as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company. He left the company in 2013 to cofound Double Time Capital, a solar-focused clean energy fund, with partner Rye Barcott. As of February 2017, “Double Time has financed 36 solar energy projects...”
Shocked, I say...
I, too, am SHOCKED, jeffc!
Rye Barcott (born 1979) is a social entrepreneur and the author of the memoir It Happened on the Way to War.
He previously co-founded Carolina for Kibera and Double Time Capital. He was a human intelligence officer in the United States Marine Corps, achieving the rank of captain.
Per National Democratic Institute Website
Rye Barcott is co-founder and CEO of WithHonor.org, a movement to build a cross-partisan coalition of veterans in Congress who can help fix our broken politics and put principles before politics. Barcott served previously in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he first came across NDIs courageous and important work enabling elections in Fallujah.
Barcott co-founded Carolina for Kibera, an NGO that helps prevent violence and invests in young leaders in the Kibera informal settlement of Nairobi, and he has served as an NDI election observer in Kenya.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put the pieces together.

Sen. Warren Calls for Investigation Into Raimondos Husbands Firm McKinsey & Co
Less effective to overthrow duly elected Presidents?
Less effective to trade secrets (gathered from research paid for by taxpayers) with the New York Times, Washington Post and MSNBC for their personal gain? Our 'intelligence' people are traitors to the American people. Traitors to the country. They're thugs who work for the benefit of one party - one very corrupt democrat party and for themselves.

When President-elect Barack Obama tapped Nancy Killefer for the newly created post of “chief performance officer,” he was merely opening the bidding on McKinsey & Co., the management consulting firm.

Diana Farrell, director of the McKinsey Global Institute, the firm’s in-house think tank, is expected to be named
