Hard to believe, but we are not making this up.  The U.S. Intelligence Community still does not routinely depict threats in relation to the level of analysis, only in absolute terms and generally in worst-case technical threat terms assuming idealized scenarios favoring the enemy.  And when that is not good enough, field grade officers are assigned to manipulate the data bases and fabricate threat capabilities.
