Peak Intel: How So-Called Strategic Intelligence Actually Makes Us Dumber

I'd like to share for the community, Eric Garland's new piece which made it all the way to the front page of TheAtlantic.com:
http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/04/peak-intel...

 

As you'll note, his intro will hit quite hard for any CI Pro:
An industry that once told hard truths to corporate and government clients now mostly just tells them what they want to hear, making it harder for us all to adapt to a changing world -- and that's why I'm leaving it.

Eric has never been short on dexterous insight for the CI community, and this piece is no different.  After reading his article, I can't help but ask, "Where do we go from here?"

 

Update:

Eric's piece has created no small stir of buzz, including this video interview on The Alyona Show:
