I’m not always in alignment with Jeffrey Carr’s point of view but in this he is spot on. Succinct and to the point, Jeffrey Carr addresses cybercrime, cyberwarfare rules of engagement and forecasts the United States’ rapid decline:

And then Congress, who collectively has never accepted responsibility for doing anything wrong, will blame the CIA for not having "connected the dots".
