On The Night Watch


This is one of the most fascinating article I have read in a long time.

Headlights approach on an empty road. A government agent steps out of an armored SUV, carrying a locked, black satchel.

“Here’s the bag,” the agent says, to the intelligence official. “Here’s the key.”

The key turns, and out slides a brown leather binder, gold-stamped “TOP SECRET.” The President’s Daily Brief, perhaps the most secret book on earth.

The PDB hand-off happens in the dead of every night, the time and location withheld, although witnessed. The book distills the nation’s greatest threats, intelligence trends and concerns, and is written by a team at CIA headquarters.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
