Larry Johnson has got a common sense approach to making sure the Prez has reasonably good intelligence. Don’t you just hate it when it really is that simple.
So what does it take to fix this? Not much. We do not need more bureaucracy. We do not have to spend more money. We do not need to hire more analysts. The Director of National Intelligence simply needs to tell the intelligence community to get off of its lazy ass and ensure that every article that is circulated outside of an intelligence agency–especially the PDB–should be fully coordinated and cleared by the relevant analysts of CIA, DIA, INR, and FBI.
Stop making sense!
