U.S. Intelligence Worse Since Adoption Of 9/11 Commission Findings

Capt. Ed has a giant "told you so" for us today. The House Intelligence Committee, in a bi-partisan vote, has now recommended that funding for the office of the National Intelligence Director, currently John Negroponte. That office, touted by the 9/11 Commission as the solution to the failure of domestic agencies and the overseas agencies to share and coordinate information, has now been seen as simply another large layer of bureaucracy. We're spending more, but there is no sign we are doing better at protecting ourselves.
