K Street Blues

"The client list of a very big player in transnational surveillance?"

"Yes, I think so. Just in case, we've embedded it in the cloud at multiple sites."

"Of course, we should be concerned about rogue nation/states as their clients. It is the secretive transnational private activity that appears to be the most disruptive and dangerous, however.

"Too often contractors are tasked with, in effect, watching themselves to detect and prevent conflict-of-interest. We now are beginning to discover the causal chains in the nearly catastrophic global financial meltdown of the last couple of years. Such self-regulation is at the heart of the matter.

"Why would we not assume that similar initiatives like say, regional conflicts to obscure a more consequential power change, are not conducted in the same way?"

Happily, the right folk are asking these types of questions, now."
