What about those of us who want a pre-1913 America? What's extremely sad is the majority of the people who actually read this will have no idea why I used the year 1913.
Michael D. November 09, 2012 at 07:47 PM
That is the basis of the political system, a series of political combat that keeps our government as a living document. With checks and balances.

"American Patriot" I have served as well, your bias shows through your "patriot" veil. I have no doubt that our Military intel members are looking into this and it is not my faith in them that is in subject. What I do hope is that our Commander in Chief will do everything in his power to make sure that IF mistakes were made and IF there were failures that they do not happen again. I want to thank you for serving but as for your comment about watching your back It saddens me that as a "service member" you would result in attacking someone you never met but this type of response has become typical and makes me question its source. From your description of your military duties you were more than likely watching my back and that scares me. Also isn’t COMINT a type of SIGINT? And what about the other types of Intelligence Collection Disciplines why didn’t you list them or were you just trying to impress me?
Daryl Dixon November 09, 2012 at 09:05 PM
or I should say that SIGINT is a type of COMINT right? along with HUMINT,IMINT,MASINT and OSINT?
American Patriot November 09, 2012 at 09:45 PM
Comint is indeed a type of Sigint, and I meant to say Elint (also a type of Sigint). And yes, there are multiple types of intel, but my point was that there are often conflicts in information that is coming in in real time and I was giving examples. In the Benghazi situation, I'd professionally wager that the best source will be Humint, supplemented by Comint. And, as multiple echelons were involved, the challenge for the incident evaluators will be to weigh the varying perceptions of each echelon as the events were developing. And as to corrections, if you really think that POTUS is going to personally write the report, and validate the decision, then you are not being realistic about the chain of command. Yes, he will be the final approver and authority. The key players for eval and correction will be State, CIA, DIA, CENTCOM, and CINCUSNAVEUR, along with the FBI for eval. And my point about watching my back relates to situations in which someone would make flawed judgments, by using a single source of info and not checking all intel sources available, and all comms incoming, so that the best judgment is made for the protection of all forces. Neither you, nor I, are tasked with uncovering the full story about this incident, and taking pot shots and making half-baked judgments is not helpful, and could be harmful. Let the professionals do their job. And thank you for your service.
