The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

DNI Resigns

The Director of National Intelligence, retired Admiral Dennis C Blair, has resigned and is out the door on 28 May 2010.

One person commented:
I would hope in weeks to come he would comment on the limited value of the DNI position and that its creation is more an admission of executive (and congressional) mismanagement than meaningful IC restructuring.
That is spot on.

Admiral Blair, and his two predecessors, lack the authority to really make the other Intelligence Heads toe the line.  Until the DNI gets that authority it is a sham job.

Does anyone remember the comment after the Times Square Bombing Attempt that there were 14 points at which we could have connected the dots, and didn't.  It would seem the IC is not working together and not working well.

Regards  —  Cliff

  IC = Intelligence Community.

What the Obama administration has done is create more points that are collectively more prone to disconnection...but create the appearance of enthusiastic strengthening of the intel community. Why can't we just have ONE good agency????
