"Political Diversion" needs to become 'language' in the 'intelligence community.'

...Homo Politico Americanus well knows this tactic of distraction (click title to entry - thank you) and frequently employs this stratagem when the fires under its feet get hot, although it does so for far more sinister reasons than merely to save its offspring. The present administration frequently uses this tactic to save itself from embarrassing exposures that would uncover suspicious and specious behavior and most probably even criminal liability (the rubric of national security falls under the law of diversion as well)....

The article at the title to this entry attempts to make the concept of political diversion palatable. It is actually treason, but, needs to be a VALIDATING language within the intelligence community, both domestic and international.

There should be no hurdles to 'effective' language between any intelligence service with another and those logistics need to be fine tuned. This is burgeoning 2010, there is no reason for these hideous issues to exist.

Let's try to work on that, okay?

One might find 'that concept' is what bolsters the Pakistani ISI. To the extent that brings its own instability needs to be tempted. Thought I'd mention it. The Pakistani ISI is the 'stop gap' between 'the street' and the government.
