A political writer using the Facebook name Jose Alejandrino expressed doubts regarding incoming National Adviser Prof. Clarita Carlos competence for the national security job after she was quoted saying forming group of scholars to craft national security strategy under the PBBM presidency. [Link here]
Alejandrino preferred our defense and security officials to do the job regarding our national security strategy, not scholars. Why?
Alejandrino is worried about leakages of state secrets only reserved for the President’s eyes because for sure scholars will be asking confidential intel if and when they are going to craft our national security strategy.
Alejandrino wondered if Carlos wants the enemy to know what are classified as secret matters?
Alejandrino is only agreeable to Carlos suggestion if scholars have A1 security clearance.
If there are leakages of sensitive intel, the NSA will become the biggest national security risk to the country.
Alejandrino ended the article expressing respect for Prof. Carlos intellect but the idea of scholars crafting our national security strategy is the most stupid idea he has heard.

DOES CARLOS KNOW WHAT SHE IS DOING?
NSA-designate Carlita Carlos wants scholars to craft a national security strategy. Why scholars and not our defense/security officials? Next the scholars will be asking for confidential Intel only reserved for the president’s eyes. Does Carlos want the enemy to know what are classified as secret matters? Leakages are always possible. No scholar must have access to highly confidential matters without A1 security clearance. If God forbid there are leakages of sensitive info, the NSA will become the biggest national security risk to our country.
I respect Carlita Carlos for her intellect but this is the most stupid idea I have heard.
