Thoughts on the military and military activities of a diverse nature. Free-ranging and eclectic.

This is coolbert:

My series of blog entries on intelligence failures is based upon the book, "Military Intelligence Blunders", by the British author, Colonel John Hughes-Wilson. I highly recommend this book to all interested parties. It's insight is profound, and the style of writing is acerbic.

Colonel John Hughes-Wilson is described as a career British military intelligence officer, retiring in 1993 after a career of 30 years as both a commander and general staff officer. His service included the Falkland Islands, the desert, NATO's political and intelligence staff and the jungles of Whitehall. Very insightful comments. Especially in the aftermath of the findings of the 9/11 commission.
