Stupid intelligence.

I was out of town when all this 9/11 report stuff came out (we heard a bit on the radio), and this may not be news to you all, but it was to me: we have fifteen different intelligence agencies. I read that in the paper this morning and stopped short, trying to think of what those fifteen could possibly be when I could only think of 3 or 4. You give it a shot. It’s ridiculous.
(In the end, a web search may bring you to this html slideshow, which gives you the answer. For those of you who have no desire to look at some crappy image-based slideshow, the fifteen are: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Energy, FBI, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, NSA, State Department, Treasury, and Coast Guard.)
Yay bureaucracy.

  1. So, Loverchunky…does AP(ower)'(s) response mean
    1. someone at the AP follows your blog
    2. someone hates capitalism
    3. someone celebrates capitalism
    (This dilmma is one of the problems of inuendo without the courage of clarity: I am full of inuendo, yet I sure I hope I make my Good Moral Absolutist Self clear.)
    E.g., I was sure shocked to click on APowers to ask the question/s and find myself at the AP site.
    Such a Wow!
