We haven't learnedMon 19 July 2010 by Kevin van Haaren
Argh. I wrote this back in 2006: More Analysis Not More Data
Information gathering is certainly needed, but that isn’t what we’ve been lacking. We’ve been lacking good analysis of the information we do have. Why the administration insists it needs the ability to spy on anyone/anywhere without warrants when they can’t even analyze the current information they have is beyond me.
Now the Washington Post has an in-depth look at this building and building and building of intelligence agencies to suck in more data but not actually analyze it. Complete waste of time that is just waiting to explode into huge scandal of abuse and cover-ups.
