Flynn senior is the closest intelligence adviser to Trump. He was formerly the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He doesn't trust the CIA and the CIA doesn't trust him.
His son has a put out a tweet that links to a story by Thierry Meyssan titled: General Flynn’s Proposals to Reform Intelligence
This is where we learn what the intelligence community attack on Trump is really all about. It is self-defense from a Flynn reform plan that will rip the current intelligence community apart.
The story reports:
General Michael T. Flynn, the next US National Security adviser is in the process of organizing a radical overhaul of the Intelligence Services.Remember, this report was tweeted out by Flynn's son. It is the real deal. Flynn is going to rip apart the current intelligence agencies---not to shrink intelligence activities but to put it more in line with his military thinking on intelligence.
According to our sources, he is getting ready to challenge the big reforms that took place during the Bush and Obama years..
Michael T. Flynn was so disappointed with how the new CIA was working that he tried – in vain - to set up a service within the Defense Department to compensate for its shortcomings: the Clandestine Defense Service...
The nomination of Mike Pompeo as the next director of the CIA would have been conditional upon him agreeing to override the reforms brought into being under President Bush and Obama. Despite his extreme declarations – in favour of secret prisons and against the shi-ites - the Kansas representative and the former captain of the calvary, should behave like an obedient soldier.
The current director of National Intelligence, James R. Clapper announced that his role would end with President Obama. Thus his post should disappear.
The 16 agencies should no longer be accountable to the National Intelligence Director but only to the National Security Adviser. In other words, they will be accountable to General Flynn personally.
This is not a shrinking of government. It is only a severe shift in intelligence command and control into the hands of Flynn. Since Flynn is very suspicious of Russia, China and Iran, it is not a move toward a more secure world.
It is a new madman in charge.
