Do you watch FOX? I do, along with lot`s of CNN and yes, even some MSNBC. Funny I`ve never seen the things you say are on FOX, ever. Maybe you know better than I do. I only have it on in one of the offices here all day. CNN in the cafe, and at night I have to watch Rachel Maddow for my daily dose of left-hate towards anyone that disagrees.
This explains...so much....
Cable news, i.e., "infotainment", is bad for you...like deep-fried butter.
Wow...that's a lot of television to watch in one day. Perhaps the poster should step away from the television once in a while. Too much cable news is bad for you.
That being said..it seems like Bigdog is someone who expect a zero sum game when it comes to the art of intelligence. I am satisfied with the way things have been handled. Sometimes in the intelligence community things go wrong..and the results are disastrous..but then you go back and evaluate..learn from the situation and adjust processes going forward. That is how logical-thinking people operate.
Keep in mind that we never hear about the successes in the intelligence community..which far outnumber the failures. Nothing is perfect..and expecting our intelligence to be 100 percent perfect is like expecting Ortiz to hit a home run every time he steps up to the plate.
At a minimum I would expect that on Sept.11th, a day that we should be on the highest alert, our intelligence should be somewhat aware of calculated, coordinated, attacks by al Queda at our embassy around the world. 9/11/2012 was an intelligence failure and 4 people died.
have US embassy's been attacked every year since 9/11?
More and more evidence is coming about Boston. This will prove (already has) to be an intelligence failure too.
If you`re "sastified" with American deaths by fanatics due to these failures, well, we disagree.
