John O. Brennan

John O. Brennan
I apologize for being obvious, but every time I watch the curtain come down on even a halfway decent production of a Shakespeare play I feel a little sorrowful that I'll never know the man, or any man of such warm intelligence.
Imagination is but another name for super intelligence.
Edgar Rice Burroughs
I absolutely don't think a sentient artificial intelligence is going to wage war against the human species.
Daniel H. Wilson
People's intelligence tends to be in inverse proportion to their number. People don't tend to get smarter as they get into bigger groups.
I think what he's - what he believes, and he may be correct, I don't know, that we have some intelligence information that leads us to know some things about what's going on in Iraq that we haven't revealed to others.
There's a lot of neuroscience now raising the question, 'Is all the intelligence in the human body in the brain?', and they're finding out that, no, it's not like that. The body has intelligence itself, and we're much more of an organic creature in that way.

Making use of human weaknesses in intelligence work is a logical matter. It keeps coming up, and of course you try to look at all the aspects that interest you in a human being.
Because hip-hop has no requirements, you deal with people that have the least intelligence on the planet. Some of the people that compare themselves to me, compare themselves to me because they rap and I rap. They can't even read the contracts that they sign to be a rapper, to do the deal.
The intelligence community gets hurt through sequestration.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
