    There is a piece with Obama’s signature at the WSJ today that reports how much the country is doing for cybersecurity. I doubt that he even read it, much less wrote it. My first thought was whether it was put out today to shield him from what will come from FBI reports about Hillary’s private server. If anything is being done WRT intelligence and cybersecurity, it is the nameless faces in the agencies who are doing it. Obama doesn’t even attend security briefings.

    I think it’s safe to assume that, due to its opacity, there’s more fraud, waste and abuse in the intelligence community than in the government at large.

    Why are there (17) agencies in the “security community”? Could the same work not be done with say, (10)?

    Like our schools and the VA, measuring how much we spend does not measure our effectiveness.
