EO12333 Changes Published
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.
