It began as the GODFATHER OF MATH, evolved into the GOODFATHER OF MATH. Now this. Go figure...

President (Mo, Larry, And Curly) + 16 (Intelligence Agencies)

________________________________________________________________________________________________



Sober drunk or stoned...
George W. Bush
—the 43rd President—
was alternately
referred to as 
Mo, Larry and Curly


Each moniker had its own
intelligence gathering mechanism
(his Father had been a CIA chief)

The symbols above represent
sixteen Federal Intelligence Agencies

3 + 16 = 19

which equals the number
of terrorists involved
in the 9/11 attack

 
Each terrorist had a dossier
including such minutiae
as when they farted
or watched The Simpsons
or opened a door.

The nineteen intelligence agencies
were smart enough and detailed enough
to learn such things about their prey.

Unfortunately, each terrorist dossier
was the property of a different agency.

The nineteen intelligence agencies
were not smart enough to share
any of their intelligence
with any other agency.

What allowed the nineteen terrorists
to turn the world upside down
on September 11, 2001
was a simple matter
of a failure to communicate
information with eighteen
other agencies.

This happened nineteen times.

Intelligence without communication
is utterly worthless or...
as the day that will always
be remembered as a fraction proved...
utterly destructive.
