"The Washington Post Is About To Push The Bounds Of Intelligence Reporting" but, WAIT! Three days later, The Much-Anticipated And Highly Controversial Washington Post Two-Year Investigation Of America's Intelligence Apparatus: "A Top-Secret America Hidden From Public View And Lacking In Oversight". That's RIGHT! Just give all our secrets away! Nice come back after the New York Slimes killed some Troops!
GREAT JOB! Morons.
Are there plenty of waste, fraud and abuse cases? Yes there is. We can start in CONgress, you know.
The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.
These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine.

And this is why I was so dead against the formatin of the now notorious DHS. Good intentions line the path to Hell. Bush thought of it. Bush made it happen. Bush thought up the Patriot Act. Congress passed it. And now a pathetic marxist-sociopath has the control. Nice.
* Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States.
* An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1.5 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances.
* In Washington and the surrounding area, 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings - about 17 million square feet of space.
* Many security and intelligence agencies do the same work, creating redundancy and waste. For example, 51 federal organizations and military commands, operating in 15 U.S. cities, track the flow of money to and from terrorist networks.
* Analysts who make sense of documents and conversations obtained by foreign and domestic spying share their judgment by publishing 50,000 intelligence reports each year - a volume so large that many are routinely ignored.
So now the morons in DC want to tax each and everyone of us and they have no idea where the money is going. Nice constitutional ways and means. Judas H Priest we have lots of work to do.
