It’s Academic

I can now join the TSA queue and prepare for my probing with a smile knowing that my latest Standard piece is available for your reading pleasure.  Thanks to Tom for the shout-out.

Folks, if you think the SSCI report is anything but a political tool, you are deluding yourself. Should we expect more? Perhaps if this had been a CRS or GAO effort, but like most of us staffers have day jobs that won’t wait while research and analysis efforts go on (kind of like working in the IC in general). I know people on the staffs of both house committees and they’re not slouches by any stretch. A valiant effort given the circumstances, but hardly definitive.
