CIA Reorganization

You probably saw the news reports last week about CIA Director* John Brennan's consideration of "sweeping plans" to reorganize the nation's premiere intelligence agency**. Mr Brennan is concerned that the current long-standing structure - based on two major directorates, one for intelligence collection and the other for analysis - is not the best arrangement for the threats faced by the country today. He appointed an internal committee earlier this year to examine the problem and report back to him.

I'm not sure why they didn't ask me to participate on the committee as an outside advisor. It must have been an oversight. As it happens, I have a reorganization plan to offer that's probably as good as anything else they'll come up with ...

It's not quite as good as my immigration reform plan, but it's probably as good as anything Congress could come up with ... because you just know that Congress will be happy to tell the CIA how to do its job. They can't do their own job, but they're great at telling the rest of the government how to do theirs.

Whattaya think? How does my plan look? What have I missed? Leave a comment.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

** Things just aren't the same since Maxwell Smart left Control.

A great reorganization plan! It's nice that it includes room for spare lawyers. Could there also be a category of "pink helicopters" just for confusion
s sake.

I think we need a music department to add a new dimension of drama to any reporting or espionage. James Bond and Jason Bourne would be a great addition. Looks like Matt Damon is coming back for a new movie anyway. He should be right for the job.

You're running for office when?

If I rent a cave, do you think I could get the government to deliver a pallet of hundreds to me?

On second thought, maybe I should buy a cave. Then I could rent it out and take a percentage of the deliveries.

No department of dirty tricks? I wonder how I would look in a short dominatrix?

It must be cool to wear leather or be a warlord in a mountain.

And openings for warladies?

The CIA could be improved with some James Bond-like hardware.
