The key is that our national government makes its decisions on the basis of official intelligence, so who controls the intelligence controls, to a large extent, our government. (Although government intelligence’s primary focus is international, the government’s responses to the information can have domestic impact—e.g., defense industries might get additional contracts.)

It has been good, as pointed out in this (recommended) column, that the government had the benefit of two independent sources of intelligence: DoD and the CIA. But now: only one point of view will control both sources of information. And control is the issue.
