Top Secret America

I finished this book up a couple of days ago and I still find it difficult to believe some of the things in that book. For instance, the intelligence community has no idea how many classified programs it's running at any given moment. It also has no idea how many folks have a top secret clearance. There were other things in there that were equally disturbing but I don't want to be a total spoiler. In any event, those two tidbits were quite enough. I've always been taught that in order to exercise effective management you need to have visibility into the organization. Needless to say, it's probably not happening in that case
