For the most part you only know that an intelligence agency is involved when they screw up.
If you also count private intelligence companies I wouldn't be surprised if more than hundred different organisations are involved in gathering that kind of intelligence and that no single person exists who knows all of those organisations.
Oh, that's interesting - hadn't heard about that! Yeah, I suppose it's unrealistic to expect his answer to contain an actual number. But if he could shed some light on what other intelligence organizations he's come across in his work or had to cooperate with then I'd be very interested in that
And I suppose it should be possible to establish how many intelligence organizations have had access to Guantanamo prisoners? That would be an interesting number. No idea if he's the person to ask about such things though.
