Bang, Bang, Bang ... goes my head against the table
In fact, only 33 of the FBI’s 12,000 agents have even a limited proficiency in Arabic, the agency says.
Previously, I blogged about the fact that the State department only increased its full-time Arabic speaking staff from 198 to 231 post 9/11.
Combine this with the fundamental lack of understanding of the key issues in the Middle East (something mentioned in the article above and discussed in this previous post) and you really have to wonder, "What the heck is going on inside our government?"
