Outrunning the Radio - Not So Fast

The old adage that you can't outrun a radio proved true once again this past weekend.

While folks are justifiably huzzahing our special forces and our intelligence services, a more basic axiom has presented itself.

The value of information, the speed of information, and the exploitation of information.
What Wretchard is postulating is that our military and intelligence services now process data into actionable information faster than the enemy can adjust. We are often inside the enemies OODA Loop. We will be hearing of a rollup soon enough.

And, for those who will soon decry the death of innocent victims at bin Laden’s house, a simple message:

'Don’t Dine With Terror Turds.'
We might be nearing the end of our 4th Turning. One that starts with a war and ends with a financial collapse.

I hope we can say ‘Been there, Done that…’
