Washington Post probe unveils massive intelligence inefficiency

The Washington Post has conducted a two-year investigation into the growth of the US security and intelligence industry. According to this probe, over 800,000 people now have top security clearance across the United States! But the paper concludes that the intelligence services are not any more efficient, since there is simply too much information out there. This and other stories in today’s international press review: TUESDAY, 20th JULY 2010

 

Articles in today’s international press review:
 
The Washington Post: “Top Secret America: a hidden world growing beyond control”
 
Correction: Some 850,000 people have top-secret clearance across the U.S., not just in Washington D.C., as I said during the press review.
 
Salon: “The real US government”
 
Wall Street Journal “A Staunch and Self-Confident Ally,” David Cameron
 
The Independent: “The bitter legacy of Franz Kafka”
 
Los Angeles Times: “Wherefore art thou, refudiate? Sarah Palin as Shakespeare”
