Deaf Leading the Blind

1) The incident saved the  Counterterrorism Center’s budget.

2) New teams were formed to  chase leads, not write reports.

Phi Beta Iota: Click on the photo for the full story at Popular Mechanics.  Above we just list the three “ways,” each of them a perfect outcome for a fraudulent staged “threat” that was almost certainly concocted with Israeli help.  Until the guy video-taping the whole thing from in front is produced, our professional judgment is that the Underpants Bomber was an agent of the US Government doing precisely what this worthless activity wanted: give it a reason, however absurd, to keep on being worthless.   [Covert Operations against a US audience are illegal, but who cares about the Constitution or laws, these days?] NCTC’s leader, a decent well-intentioned politically-appointed lawyer who knows nothing relevant, is the poster child for what is wrong with the entire US national security domain.
