The Illusion of Competence

Fred Reed's latest column is on-line. He asks what I think is a very good question: "How can such incontinently funded agencies [CIA, NSA, Mossad, OGPU, NKVD, KGB, DIA, Savak, MI6] of very smart people accomplish so little?"

Or is it that we only hear of the failures? Let's face it, "Today in NYC, no buildings were successfully blown up." is hardly compelling news.
