This substantial Washington Post
story (a product of a "two year investigation") on our intelligence agencies post-9/11will become consequential, of course. It will merit study. Here is how it begins: "The top-secret world the government created in response to the
terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy
and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many
people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how
many agencies do the same work." It goes almost without saying that intelligence gathering in our terror war--in the end--is not really distinguishable from the fight. Worth reading and filing for future use.
