[…] OMB has given a green light for the creation of an Open Source Agency as proposed by Congressman Simmons, strictly contingent on the DNI’s blessing of that agency being outside the wire in order to be fully effective with all those who do not wish to cooperate with an element of the secret intelligence community.
