Lt Col North is correct in his assessment of the ODNI: it was a lousy idea poorly executed, as all of us who were in the intel community at the time knew from the start. NSA, CIA, NRO, DIA, AIA, the various counterintelligence, HUMINT, ELINT, COMINT, MASINT, etc. providers are too disparate in their methods, resources, agendas, personalities and ethoses (that’s a word, trust me) to be directed from a central office. Right or wrong, that’s the truth of it.

Colonel, USAFR

Thanks, I do believe you and also for your post. Appreciate hearing from someone that was close to it, egos may enter into it a little also.
