Personally, from what I can tell it's fairly meaningless. On the one
hand it creates the appearance of centralizing administration of
intelligence, while at the same time merely creating another level of
ineffective bureaucracy. While I object top any form of government

redundant the government becomes the less capable it is of actually
doing anything to oppress us effectively.
