Hey, I have an idea.
Why don’t you answer this question ?
What if policy makers are hell bent on starting a war and become involved in the intelligence gathering operation to make intelligence gathering fit the agenda? Is that the gatherers fault or is it corruption by the policy makers?
I've lost count on how many times I have answered this, and you have cut it, so that you can ask the question again.
BUt here you go again. It is the responsibility of the professional intelligence officers to give their honest professional judgements and advice, even if it is NOT what their bosses want to hear.
You obviously just want to use the war to smear your political enemies. That is all this is to you. Your pretense of caring about anyone or anything else is just bullshit.
