Phi Beta Iota: The US Government generally, and the U.S. Department of Defense especially and most expensively (secret intelligence being a subset) lack integrity across the board. Although Chuck Spinney and many others have been documenting this for decades, only now is the US public beginning to realize that the intellectual and moral corruption of the U.S. Government is no better than that of Somalia, or Libya, or Saudi Arabia–crooks legalizing crime by other crooks, all at the expense of the public. We need an honest informed government in the USA. If that ever comes to pass, the Secretary of Defense should create four forces after next, and each of those forces will have a different mix of private sector and reservist participation. All this has been understood since the mid-1990’s. What has been lacking since then is honest modern governance accountable to the public; honest intelligence-driven Whole of Government.
