#1 He may be a fine Irishman, but a bit of what Dunnigan says, needs some salt. The target of the agency appeal to Congress, not mentioned herein, is their nemesis over at Bolling AFB, the Defense Intelligence Agency. The other aspect or reality, is the obvious reduction in administration participation or interest in clandestine collection activities and missions. Following the Money as the old saying goes, generally reveals at least a few potential motives.

#2 Remember the revolt when they tried to subordinate DoD intel to a Czar? Big dirty fight. DoD won that round, but the bureaucrats are always back to expand their domain and power.

#3 That picture reminds me of the Chicken Joke.
"A farmer wanted to raise chickens and sell them for food, he quickly found that people wanted more chicken Drumsticks than chickens."
So he invested in Hybrid Chickens(With 6 legs each).
A friend came by one day withgood wishes and found the hapless farmer sitting and crying, he said "What's wrong?"
The crying farmer said "I can't catch them".
Beware, the unexpected will bite you in the ass.

Sub-read, "USDOD" IS MOVING AWAY FROM A NATIONALIST "US DEFENSE DEPARTMENT" TOWARD A POST-NATIONALIST, OWG GLOBALIST "GLOBAL DEFENSE DEPARTMENT/AGENCY" [Space Strike/"Star" firepower]. THE FUTURE OWG MIGHTY USSA = OWG WEAK USRoA GLOBAL SSR WANTS A POLITICALLY-ORIENTED, POLITICALLY-CONTROLLED INTERNAL "KGB" + "KOMMISSAR" CORP FOR THAT???
[LATE 1960'S BRIT SHOW "UFO" + "S.H.A.D.O" SUPREME HEADQUARTERS, ALIEN DEFENSE ORGANIZATION here].
