It turns out that North Korea may now have an intercontinental ballistic missile and nuclear weapons capability bringing even Washington DC within reach that even the Chinese and the Russians thought thought it would not acquire before 2040.  A North Korean nuclear challenge that no-one outside Pyongyang imagined the US would face for another 20 years is already upon us.

At its most basic level, this is a catastrophic failure of intelligence, showing how completely wrong about North Korea at least in this respect the US and most of the rest of the outside world has been.

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

It's a long list:

1.   North Korea;

2.  9/11/2001;

3.  Israeli spies working in US intel;

4.  Attack on USS Liberty by Israel;

5.  No WMD in Iraq;

6.  Missile technology transfers to China;

7.  A-Bomb production in Israel;

8.  Attack at Benghazi

 

So much more:  http://foreignpolicy...gence-failures/

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

The US government has the MOST EXPENSIVE INTELLIGENCE SERVICES IN THE WORLD!!!    17 different agencies, and not one of them figured out that sending missile guidance technology to China would end up in North Korean missiles???

 

North Korea can now deliver atom bombs to Washington, D.C. faster than Domino's can deliver a pizza to the White House.  

 

Good work CIA

Great Job, NSA

 

If Congress or Trump doesn't cut your budget to zero, consider yourselves lucky, because anyone looking at your track record would do exactly that, because your "intel" isn't worth a bag of kitty litter.

Whoever is sitting at the "North Korean Desk" should be waterboarded to make them confess why they know nothing about North Korea and which country paid them to remain ignorant.   

 

Bill Clinton, former president, belongs in prison for authorizing missile tech transfers to China, reactors to North Korea, among other crimes.  

 

Directors of Intelligence deserve to be indicted for misleading the American people and government about nearly everything connected with national security.

The failure of the Central Intelligence Agency to predict the unrest in Tunisia and Egypt dominated last week’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. At one point, committee chair Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said the CIA should have had more warning of the revolts, since demonstrators were using the Internet and social media to coordinate, in many cases publicly. “Was someone looking at what was going on on the Internet?” she quipped.

 

The country’s preeminent intelligence agency still has a reputation for cloak-and-dagger intrigue, but it has been hobbled by major intelligence failures over the last three decades. Among those embarrassments: being caught off-guard by the Iranian revolution of 1979 and India’s 1998 nuclear tests, failing to foresee the 9/11 attacks or even the end of the Cold War and, more recently, ignoring evidence that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

 

Even before Iraq, however, the agency’s intelligence lapses in the 1990s led to a “culture of failure ... a fatal cycle of error, criticism, overcorrection, distraction and politicization that undermined the quality and quantity of information provided to decision-makers who compounded these failing with major misjudgments of their own,” according to John Diamond, a former congressional staffer and author of “The CIA and the Culture of Failure.”

 

When the unrest in Cairo began to grow last month, surprising the White House, President Barack Obama reportedly told National Intelligence Director James Clapper that he was “disappointed with the intelligence community” and its failure to predict the unrest that led to the ouster of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali in Tunisia. Emphasizing that policy decisions by the president and Congress depend on timely intelligence analysis, Sen. Feinstein bluntly stated, “I have doubts whether the intelligence community lived up to its obligation in this area.”
