Bertie's 'intelligence'

When Shane Coleman, political editor of the Sunday Tribune, was asked did he think Bertie Ahern knew the woman he insultingly dismissed today he said.

I’m sure Bertie Ahern did, he’s got pretty good intelligence on the ground.

My impression was that Ahern had no idea who the woman was, that he was merely dismissing somebody he saw as an irritating peasant.

We can see that Coleman is an experienced journalist by his use of the word ‘intelligence’ in a sentence concerning Bertie Ahern.
