Something Matt and I have been pimping for a while now (and the primary motivation behind the GroupIntel concept) covered here (up through ZenPundit, across 1 Raindrop, nothing but Mayfield).

Of course we are brought back to reality by Kent’s Imperative and from insights provided by my own sources who point out that there is the on-the-job blogging and then there is the “real” work that has to be done (lest you thought pin-headed Cold War GS-15s were going to let the whippersnappers get away with not filling out production worksheets and and checking off boxes on their COLISEUM taskers).

All things considered there has been a fair amount of progress, but we’ve got a long way to go before the IC can turn on an issue a’la Rathergate (your personal politics aside) or Green Helmet Man and produce comparable results in the same timeframe.
