Our Infallible Intelligence Agencies

Dean Barnett makes a critical point regarding our intelligence agencies and just how much they understand the region they're supposed to be uniquely informed about.

If they can't tell the Shia from Sunni and don't know who is who, how are they supposed to know anything of substance? Even I know the difference and I have nothing to do with anything even remotely approaching national security or any regional specialty. Absolutely amazing.

What you're missing is that these guys are not political appointees. They're career FBI agents.
