So What Is It?

Back in July it was announced that the CIA had closed the unit known as Alec Station whose sole purpose was to track down Osama Bin Laden. At the time the CIA said the closure reflected the notion that the focus should be more towards regional trends rather than on specific individuals.

It looks like the Senate thinks that wasn't such a good idea as today they unanimously voted to allocate $200 million to fund the same organization that the CIA felt was unnecessary.
