"The agency seems to have barely stayed ahead of news outlets as events unfolded..­."
     Hardly surprising­, seeing the news outlets had 20 times the budget and 10 times as many feet on the street. The comparativ­e failure of the news outlets seems greater than the intelligen­ce agencies.

You are right, Rabbi, he should have invaded Egypt to orchestrat­e a regime change years ago. That would have made the Egyptians love us.
    Failing invasion, he could have publicly told Mubarak to go at the very first demonstrat­ion by more than six people. That would convince all US allies that American can be trusted and stands by those who have helped the USA.
    Only 20-20 hindsight can tell you when to jump on the next bandwagon - those who operate on intellect, as opposed to emotion, tend to think the hind-sighters a bit silly and self-serving..
