EO12333 Changes Published

Today’s “Secrecy News” from the Federation of American Scientists notes the publication of changes to Executive Order 12333 which deals with the U.S. intelligence community.

The entry comments – after noting some positive changes o the original EO 12333 issued in 1981 – that “To criticize (or praise) the provisions of the new executive order is to presume its status as a controlling document and a definitive source on intelligence policy. But a more troubling question is how much the order actually matters."

That is not only a troubling question but the key question. And unfortunately, the answer depends on the integrity of the person in the Oval Office.

Nothing more need be said.
