Here is the original post of the document and our critique.

Reference: Intelligence Community Directive (ICD) Number 300: Management, Integration, and Oversight of Intelligence Collection and Covert Action

Since then the position of the ADDNI/OS has been abolished, the long-standing director of the OSC that did so much damage in his ignorance and arrogance has retired, to be replaced by a second stringer from the NRO, and of course we now know that there is no management, no integration, and no oversight of intelligence collection and covert action — nor is there any management, integration, and oversight of everything else: processing, analysis, outreach, sharing, or the creation of ethical evidence-based decision-support, which is simply not what the US secret world does.  It collects — everything — as espensively as possible.  It kills with drones — with a 98% error rate — and also very expensively.  It does nothing useful to Whole of Government to to creating a prosperous world at peace, a world in which the USA can enjoy the fruits of peace, commerce, and friendship.

Below are a few graphics and high-level pieces on what the US intelligence should look like.  They are logical extensions of the earlier pieces published in the early 1990’s.
