Re: The Ticking Lie Scenario

In some ways, this is the most important fact about the NIE: with Democratic control providing oversight, with progressive movement pressure,  in spite of the administration and its Republican enablers, enough pressure has been coming to bear on the system to begin to get government working in the public interest again.

Re: The Ticking Lie Scenario:

The NIE seems to have been made public as a result of pressure within the intelligence community. The new findings about Iran, if kept secret and distorted, might deeply affect the future of the United States; and so their release became a patriotic obligation. A similar motive can be heard in some recent court decisions and in public statements by leaders of the armed forces.
