Fractured US Intelligence Rules out Greater Cooperation with RussiaSalem-News.com
The mounting US intelligence failures since 9/11 can in large part be contributed to a lack of cooperation among US agencies themselves.
(LONDON) - The US intelligence community is in a state of disarray—most recently illustrated by the Boston Marathon Bombings—and the idea of a more structured cooperation with Russian intelligence as a direct result of this incident is a paper tiger.
The mainstream US media has latched on to the idea of a new era of US-Russian intelligence cooperation as a resu lt of the Chechen connection to the Boston bombing because this is an attractive post-Cold War idea that makes for good headlines.
The reality is clearly less dramatic. The mounting US intelligence failures since 9/11 can in large part be contributed to a lack of cooperation among US agencies themselves. Adding increased cooperation on a clearly structured level with external agencies simply isn’t feasible.
This idea is even trumping the blame game over Boston that will seek to determine whose intelligence failure this really was and who was responsible for the root causes of the incident: Russia or the US?
