Daniel Hoffman, a former CIA officer and Moscow station chief, told The Washington Times that exposing the footnotes is a good defense against further Russian meddling.
"We don't have an unlimited number of smart people doing the work," he said. "And when you are bringing them to places like the NCTC and DNI and ask them to duplicate the work that is being done at CIA, FBI, that's a bad allocation of resources. The NCTC in particular was doing work that was very much duplicative of what CIA's counterterrorism center was doing. We don't have enough people in the field."
