Letters to the Editor: Making SIGINT Sharable — the Database Is the Report


SIDtoday published two letters to the editor in response to a previous "Making SIGINT Sharable" article, about analysts giving customers direct access to raw SIGINT databases rather than writing reports. The letters express opposing views. In the first letter, the author is upset about how the rest of the "so called IC has been nibbling around NSA, trying to get more and more of our mission" and how giving customers this access is too far. The second letter is about how giving customers access to these databases "will make SIGINT far more efficient and effective."
