Iraq: The Intelligence War

The Iraqi government admits that the insurgents are "one step ahead of them". Iraq the Model believes this is a good development--admitting the problem is the first step in solving the problem. Then he explains:

You can imagine now how much information the past regime had about the people of Iraq, and where did that huge database go?
It was kept by the same people who were in charge of it before, hard disks and box files were all taken home and the rest was burned and soon many of those personnel became the core of the local insurgency so it's somewhat correct to say that those intelligence collectors did not lose power because they retained one of the most powerful weapons in the kind of warfare we're fighting here.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
