Dark Times at the FBI

Fast Company has fantastic article by Pulitzer Prize Winning journalist J.J. Brazil on the FBI’s abysmal modernization effort, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has a devastating expose on how the Bureau’s counterterrorism efforts come at the expense of fighting crime. This all comes as a drama unfolds in a Manhattan courthouse; were learned observers see the FBI’s reputation (whatever remains) at stake.

Bottom-line: The FBI should not have the primary domestic CT mission. The FBI should have been torn down and rebuilt from the ground up before 9/11.
