India's IB among top five intelligence agencies in the world

  • indian intelligence agencies are kept in a cloud of secrecy to protect them from unwanted foreign and local media attention. no one really knows what goes in the down and dirty world of the guys at RAW and Ib. But i figure they do a reasonable job. especially since the funding they get is minimal compared to their american israeli or even pakistani counter parts. Other than the normal funding that ISI gets from the govt. its well known fact the it controls pakistani politics and has most of the tax payer's money to its discretion.
