    In talking around this moring, I suspect the reason this has come up just now is, Murtha has ticked off one Democrat too many….. Does the name James Traficant ring any bells?

  3. And you think WP is tough?

    A little entry at Defense Tech highlights a new weapon the Marines have been using. It seems to be a brutal and effective device- exactly what I want the Marines fighting with. Unfortunately the usual suspects are now crying that it causes too many civ…

    Spies Like Us
    Michigan Congressman Pete Hoekstra called for the dissemination of the backlog of intelligence intercepts to be posted on the internet for assistance in translating them. His concept is Professors, bloggers and others would rapidly translate this backlog and report back what they have found. See article (

    This should raise a red flag that we are woefully underfunded, under staffed and way behind in collection, analysis and taking appropriate action on what our intelligence services are providing. It is asking for trouble however, to just post this information for all to see, it would seem more prudent to identify the Colleges, and others who could be useful, do background checks, organized their results, and provide an organized and controlled flow of information.

    This backlog, and lack of timely information, is another recipe for disaster in the making. If we have another 9/11 style attack, what will we find after the fact in this backlog of intelligence, which will be pointed to by another Commission, that could and would have prevented another attack.

    The Administration and Congress must address this issue forthrightly and promptly. Spend the money, hire the people and get this job done!
