TTIC…New Acronym for TIA?

It’s hard to argue with the need for a coordination of intelligence agency information after the disastrously poor communication between the CIA, FBI and police agencies prior to September 11. My first reaction to the Terrorist Threat Information Center announced during the State of the Union address was “about frickin’ time!” Here it is 16 months later, and you’re just now figuring out they need to talk to each other?

My second thought, however, was a little more cautious. It went in my ears as “the War on Terrorism”. It rattled around my brain as “a proposal to gather as much information as we can into one, big spying database, headed by the director of the CIA. And, no, we won’t tell you how it’s gonna work.”

In the end, I think it’s probably a good thing to get those lines of communication open between the the people keeping an eye the terrorists abroad and the terrorists at home. But let’s just make sure we keep our eyes on those people. Just in case.

    when in college i worked an internship at a paper in southern utah which means in the shortest of terms i was the office gopher, doing tasks for the editors and compiling research for reporters and it was during this time when the chance to make real actual money fell in my lap and i began to work as a freelance journalist for papers all over the country and it was good, but the day i felt i had really accomplished something being a girl from a small town in Utah was the day i had my byline published in the SLC Trib.

    Abso-friggin-lootely! I think the communication aspect of the terrorist threat information center is great, don’t you just hate when something blows up, and it’s like “ok, Charlie, *you* wanna claim credit for this, or should Achmed, or Bill…?”

    Oh wait. This is for Law Enforcement?
    Uhm. Just forget what I said up there, ok?
