Some key excerpts, which are just as relevant and necessary today as they were then:
“There can be no bureaucratic impediments to success. All the rules have changed. There must be an absolute and full sharing of information, ideas and capabilities. We do not have time to hold meetings to fix problems–fix them–quickly and smartly. Each person must assume an unprecedented degree of personal responsibility.
We must ensure that the same principles apply in dealing with our law enforcement, military, other civilian agencies, and Intelligence Community colleagues. Whatever systemic problems existed in any of these relationships must be identified and solved now.
There must be an absolute seamlessness in our approach to waging this war–and we must lead.”
