getting the information to those who could have stopped it and those who could have stopped it having the information, but chose not to are 2
Everyone knows that the intelligence agencies have communications problems. theyre forbbiden fro sharing intelligence. Although this is being wroked
on. We also know that information doesnt always get sent up to the people who need to know about it.
Its the norm for an analyst to analyse intelligence, write a report on it, and instead of being sent up to people who need it, it will just sit on a
shelf and collect dust. There are also people who would need to know this kind of stuff in the agencies, and are looking for it in their data bases,
and cant find the kind of relevant information theyre looking for, even though it is there waiting to be read.
and again about communication problems, there are lots of barriers making it hard for agencies to share information. I was reading about one guy who
worked for the CIA and how he would have problems sending information to the FBI. He would have it couriered over to the people who needed it, they
would cal him and say "we havent gotten it yet". he would fax it, and they would still call him telling him they havent gotten it. the barriers they
create to make sharing info make this kind of thing difficult.
Its the events such as terrorist attacks that are a result of this, not of any evil doing or corruption. ITs the events you dont hear about, terroist
plots that have been stopped and kept on the DL for security reasons that result when it does work. you hear of the intelligence agencie's failures,
but not their successes.
It doesnt surpise me one single bit that they have a report or warnings that an attack was about to happen, and then it happened. I would expect that
kind of thing from intelligence agencies that have info sharing problems, and problems getting important info to the right people. Often, the
intelligence is there, its just problems of getting it to the right people that can cause # to hit the fan.
so hearing that they did infact have
the infor prior is nothing surpising at all! Oh but you CTers jump for joy when you hear about someone having the info beforehand. ooooh like that
means anything, its normal for info to be there before the event is supposed to happen.
yeah, its kinda normal, duuuuhhhhh.
When you find a report that says "mr.X knew about it, had the power to stop it, but chose not to becuase he had an evil plan to enact", then come
back and talk your conspiracies.
but "mr.X had the info beforehand, the attack could have been stopped!" just dont cut it.
keep dreamin up the fantasies though
