Wednesday’s Food for Thought: Giving Thanks for Pretty Much Everything

Added by Category: Daily Intelligence Brief, General


Welcome to the Wednesday’s Food for Thought post from got geoint? As many are heading out today for the long holiday weekend, we have decided to move our fan-favorite Friday’s Food for Thought post to Wednesday this week. And what better theme than the concept of ‘thanks.’ As many of us know, the Intelligence Community’s work is mainly done behind closed doors. As such, the IC often does not get the public credit that it deserves for protecting our great nation.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving09Right about now, most of our readers are gathered with family and loved ones getting ready to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. The editorial staff of got geoint? would like to wish everyone a healthy and happy Thanksgiving. For your reading pleasure, we found an article from our friends at Washington Technology that highlights “7 Government IT Turkeys,” projects that were essentially doomed.

Others scuffled along for years — frustrating department heads, Congress and regular users while keeping inspectors general and the Government Accountability Office fully employed – before coughing up some results.” So, if you are in the need of some holiday-time schadenfreude, check out the full article here. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
