NYT on TLA Rot
Today's NY Times has front page article and editorial on a
congressional study to be done
on the need for the CIA and reassessment of eleven other
Says funds for the study were included in recent $28 billlion
package for intelligence.
"Throughout the cold war, the nation needed a great
intelligence service, and by and
large, it got one," said Allen Goodman, a former CIA official
and dean of the School
of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. "But from about
1985 onward nobody's
been able to say if they are good or bad, and from 1990 onward
nobody's been able
to say exactly why we need them."
Bet many "national threats" are in the offing.
