There has been an increased use of technology for intelligence gathering which supposedly allowed for 9/11 to happen as they missed major clues because of it.

I was just shocked when I read this. I had not heard a single whisper of this. At a time when there is a serious money flow issue for the Government this just seems so odd. Basically if I understand this you will have two agencies from the Government doing almost the same thing. They will be competing against each other. In my opinion it will make both the agencies less effective in the long run.
Why not just take lets say 3/4 of the cost of doing this vast operation and just spend the money making the CIA more effective.
Defense officials stressed that the DIA has not been given any new authorities or permission to expand its total payroll. Instead, the new spy slots will be created by cutting or converting other positions across the DIA workforce, which has doubled in the past decade — largely through absorption of other military intelligence entities — to about 16,500.
Vickers has given the DIA an infusion of about $100 million to kick-start the program, officials said, but the agency’s total budget is expected to remain stagnant or decline amid mounting financial pressures across the government.

Seems like I read a thread on here a couple days ago about the POTUS issuing a statement that implied there were people plotting within the FG to "decapitate" the American Government. (I'll see if I can find it...)
U.S. President Barack Obama a memorandum last Wednesday that takes action against “insider threats,” which some analysts claim is really a move to stop a plot to ”decapitate” the government.
The memorandum, signed by President Obama on November 21 without any significant media coverage, provides “direction and guidance to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security.
The National Insider Threat Policy looks to provide “the minimum elements necessary to establish effective insider threat programs,” which include “the capability to gather, integrate, and centrally analyze and respond to key threat-related information; monitor employee use of classified networks; provide the workforce with insider threat awareness training; and protect the civil liberties and privacy of all personnel.”
For those who are wondering about the real story behind the Patraeus affair, here is a completely different angle: General Petraeus has been and remains personal friends of Paula Broadwell and her husband for over 20 years.
Broadwell was trying to protect General Petraeus and Ambassador Stevens from an FBI Division 5 Israeli Mossad instigated email hacking attack against General Petraeus and Stevens as Petraeus and Stevens and other patriotic members of the U.S. military were compiling "smoking gun evidence" concerning the criminal money laundering activity of the Bush-Clinton-Cheney Crime Family Syndicate's Omega Fund.
Note: The Omega Fund has accrued massive profits from the illegal rigging of the LIBOR rate tied to Barclays Bank of England, UBS Switzerland and Citibank of New York." -- Tom Heneghan www.myspace.com...
Tom Heneghan's blog references links to death of Ambassador Stevens (characterized as a targeted hit)...
As we have reported in previous intelligence briefings, Ambassador Stevens was in possession of the December of 2001 Osama bin Laden aka 9/11 patsy and CIA employee Tim Osman's death certificate.
Stevens also was in possession of financial records regarding the money laundry activities of the Bush-Clinton-Cheney Crime Family Syndicate administered Omega Fund, which was involved in launderingWanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocol Funds through nine (9) major U.S. banking institutions.
Again, it is important to remember that the night of the Benghazi attacks massive volatility took place in gold, silver and crude oil futures in which billions of dollars were rearranged and disguised in illegal cross-collateralized derivatives tied to Citibank and the London LIFFE Exchange.'--Tom Heneghan www.stewwebb.com... ... 121111.htm
This statement from a previous intel report by Heneghan sums up the link between this takedown of Patraeus just before he is due to testify regarding the Benghazi incident:
Petraeus was ready to finger current dysfunctional U.S. Secretary of State, loser Hillary RodenhurstClinton for ordering a U.S. military stand down as U.S. Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens was being assassinated by bought and paid for U.S. government provocateurs, as well as the rogue U.S. CIA data base aka Al Qaeda. -- Tom Heneghan www.stewwebb.com... ... 121111.htm

It's a nice way of sticking out the proverbial tongue to so called 'enemies' of the state.
Either that, or it has something to do with money.
Maybe it's both.

If we had any proper intelligence then we wouldnt have to guess whether Iran is building nuclear weapons and a dozen of other things we appear not to know.
