Phi Beta Iota: In isolation this is as good as it gets.  A serious, valuable document that has been ignored just as the Aspin-Brown Commission recommendations of March 1996 were ignored.  Other than point out that if you have analysts with little real word cultural, historical, and linguistic experience, they will not know they are only eating really expensive technical secret shit that is less than 20% of the relevant information, and their deductions will be, as one World Bank manager put it, “frightening in their ignorance.”  We do not lack of intelligence in the ranks.  We lack for integrity in the leadership.  Nothing has changed since this excellent document was produced.
