General Flynn to Reform US Intelligence
#1
Interesting if it turns out to be true.

Quote:General Flynn's Proposals to Reform Intelligence
by Thierry Meyssan
Thierry Meyssan considers that General Flynn is getting ready to rock the world of US intelligence and override all post 9/11 reforms. This would put an end to the obsession with secret prisons and targeted assassinations and mark a return to the true nature of intelligence: making sense of and anticipating developments around the world.

General Michael T. Flynn, the next US National Security adviser is in the process of organizing a radical overhaul of the Intelligence Services.


According to our sources, he is getting ready to challenge the big reforms that took place during the Bush and Obama years:
- placing all 16 Intelligence agencies under the exclusive authority of a Director of National Intelligence, supposed to supervise information sharing;
- abolishing the line between agents on the ground and analysts in favour of functional centres such as the ones we see in the TV series 24.


As we had highlighted at the time, and as General Flynn has also subsequently emphasized:
- the Director of National Intelligence clearly had the power to centralize intelligence which until then had been dispersed, but he lacked the power to interfere with how the different agencies were operating. So for example, he did not have the power to remove an incompetent officer.
- key point: the current functional centres excel in providing information instantly. They are able to pinpoint an individual anywhere in the world and, if need be, eliminate him. But this is not Intelligence. The correct term is crime. Even if the CIA miraculously topples the regimes that the White House disapproves of and sets up secret prisons, it is not by any measure more knowledgeable on anticipating political developments, and to a lesser extent still, military developments.


Michael T. Flynn was so disappointed with how the new CIA was working that he tried in vain - to set up a service within the Defense Department to compensate for its shortcomings: the Clandestine Defense Service.


Colonel James H. Baker, who is currently directing the strategic office of the Pentagon and who is, like Flynn opposed to the neo-conservatives, should be promoted.


The nomination of Mike Pompeo as the next director of the CIA would have been conditional upon him agreeing to override the reforms brought into being under President Bush and Obama. Despite his extreme declarations in favour of secret prisons and against the shi-ites - the Kansas representative and the former captain of the calvary, should behave like an obedient soldier.


The current director of National Intelligence, James R. Clapper announced that his role would end with President Obama. Thus his post should disappear.


The 16 agencies should no longer be accountable to the National Intelligence Director but only to the National Security Adviser. In other words, they will be accountable to General Flynn personally.

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

They'll have a tough time getting that past all the "But what about 9/11? 9/11 changed everything!" crowd.

Worth a try though and they should anticipate all the objections and have an answer for them all.

Somehow, the whole thing kinda smells fishy to me. The core of the CIA for example has been to extend the Anglo-American agenda. The notion that its primary mission is to collect intelligence is a facade.

A segment of the film The Good Shepherd was, for me, more than interesting because of the way it set out the theme that the CIA/Skull and Bones element regarded itself as a sort of secret 'protector' of the Eastern Establishment cum Anglo-American core values of America.

But I can well see that Flynn may want to bring all the intelligence agencies under the direct control of the National Security Adviser and, therefore, the White House. We could see some wonderful turf wars occur in the near future.
