From the interwebs...flattering criticism

Lambert, Mike [CAPT/USN]. "The Navy's Cryptologic Community -- A Transformational Phoenix?" U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 132, no. 10 (Oct. 2005): 74-75. Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 22, no. 1 (Jan. 2006): 32-33.
"Rising from the ashes of decline, the Naval Security Group (the Navy's cryptologic community) is seeing the benefits of its transformation from a legacy signals intelligence (SIGINT) collection, analysis, and reporting organization to a truly multi-faceted 'information operations' organization."
Admiral Jake Jacoby, "From the Chairman," Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 22.3 (Jun. 2006): 3, takes issue with some of Lambert's commentary. Jacoby argues that "[t]he need [for change] can be stated in more positive terms.... The case might be better made by talking about relevance and integration of Navy's SIGINT and Information Warfare capabilities into the broader mosaic that is absolutely essential to dealing with the very difficult intelligence challenges of today's war."
