I do remember Omsig, he could frustrate me, but he was an interesting man. The phonetic stuff drove me nuts, but only because I had to either write or edit or synthesize intelligence into something all branches of the military would understand. (there is very little room for creativity) but it still has to be the best that you have at that moment and in an agreed upon form that everyone would understand. All of the other non-military 'customers' would also be able to understand. It was an all-consuming passion that we kept everyone informed, if you constantly provided bullshit because you were lazy or careless...you didn't get to write reports anymore.
I know that the alt-right loves to talk about the Deep State, but there are thousands and thousands of DOD people keeping our military safe, warning them of changes or suspicions of unfriendly action......that's why we serve.
