This entire web site is about intelligence reform, at three levels;
Level I: Unscrew the secret world, which spends $75B a year on the 10-20% it can steal (of which it only processes 1-6%, ultimately producing no more than 4% of what the President needs to know, and virtually nothing for anyone else.
Level II: Create a Smart Nation that allows Whole of Government operations able to eradicate the ten high-level threats to the USA by harmonizing the twelve core policies within a balanced budget, while eradicationg Wall Street and Mafia co-corruption with the two-party tyranny and the relatively ignorant White House.
Level III: Leverage our Collective Intelligence (the one billion rich) to empower the five billion poor so that their Collective Intelligence can create infinite wealth and thus achieve a propserous world at peace.
Below the fold are some of the more trenchant references for each level, but the student of intelligence reform should study the entire site inclusive of Books (OSS/EIN) (9); Graphics (104); Handbooks (26); Historic Contributions (223); References (172); and Reviews (1442). The quote below applies to both our politicians and policy makers, and to our intelligence professionals.
