Well Andreas, we covered this ground several months ago, but to reiterate: 
It is primarily the decimation of our HUMINT capabilities which have been 
most devastating from an intelligence standpoint.  My reading over the years 
has informed me that a nation without a large, active and competent fleet of 
Intel operatives on the ground overseas is significantly handicapped. 
Surely you can appreciate the limited usefulness of satellite imagery and 
other such long-range methods.  HUMINT, or human intelligence, is critical.

Regarding #1)  COINTELPRO,  I would think it quite appropriate for the FBI 
to keep an eye on the activities of a number of groups and individuals. 
It's called prudence and providing for domestic security, government's 
primary mandate.

#2)  Sounds GREAT to me.

#3)  Reluctant to swallow whole, your summary of this alleged activity.

#4)  Would depend upon the specific circumstances, but could envision 
scenarios where an administration might prefer to keep such an option on the 

#5)  Fine.  Those not aiding terrorist financially have nothing to fear.

Peace out,  --T
