Watcher's Council results

Hey! I came in second!!


And now...  the winning entries in the Watcher's Council vote for this week are Why Is There Still a CIA? by Done With Mirrors, and A Strategy for the Long War by Blackfive.  All members, please be sure to link to both winning entries (and to the full results of the vote) in a post.  I actually had to cast a tie-breaking vote in the council category this week...  I enjoyed Hube's fisking of a book by Chris Hedges, but Callimachus' critique of the CIA ultimately won me over.  American Future was the only member unable to vote this week, and the only member affected by the 2/3 vote penalty.  Thanks to everyone for all the great entries this week...  I'm eager to see next week's entries!  Here are the full tallies of all votes cast:
