Comment More intelligence? (Score 1) 584

My question is: Would the Bush Administration correctly interpret the information that they receive from illegal wiretaps? I'm curious, because they had a document entitled "Bin Laden determined to attack inside the US" and another document entitled "Sociology and Psychology of Terrorism: Who Becomes a Terrorist and Why?" that warned that bin Laden's terrorists might hijack an airliner and dive bomb it into the Pentagon or other government building. ain509294.shtml So, if we record all conversations of every American, who will interpret them? If we gather every email and letter that goes across the sea, who will interpret them? At some point it's like Carnivore, where it's overload of information. The issue isn't that we didn't have information to stop 9/11 without illegal wiretaps, it's that we have retards interpreting those documents (Yes Dubya, I'm looking in your direction!)... I don't understand the NEED for MORE intelligence. How about the need for GOOD intelligence interpreted by people that actually can read? Just a thought...
