    Well, thanks for dragging *me* into this food fight . . . :> I agree
    with NIST's criticism of 17799. Don't know that I am quite comfortable
    that the CC are somehow "better," however. Smacks of apples and
    oranges to me. I *will* take the position, though, that if one tries
    to build an Information Security program around 17799, there will be a
    *lot* that is missing . . . IMHO it just doesn't cover all the bases.
