Gen. John Batiste (Ret.) on interagency strategic planning.

My favorite part is where he acknowledges how bloody hard cooperation is. Most articles I see like this go something like "Yap yap agencies must share info and coordinate yap yap synergy yap frequent updates yap yap." Right. Because it's easy to get the lumbering bureaucratic behemoths that make up our federal government to spontaneously sit down for a tea party (the kind with china cups, not banners) and swiftly formalize a clear and readily-understood plan of action with concrete goals, responsibilities and metrics for all, which everyone can accept (with only a few reservations, perhaps) as a reasonable course of action with a good chance of success.

I can't do that in a crowd of larger than 4-6 people, never mind eighteen entire agencies.
