The job of Charles Allen, head of the Department of Homeland Security's intelligence office and a 40-year CIA vet, is keeping secrets. Except his own. In a town where the information on the business cards of government honchos is normally meaningless, Allen's is remarkably forthcoming. We know because he gave us one. Missing: the useless stuff like the general phone number of DHS. Included: accurate numbers of his cellphone, home-office phone, and work desk. And why? So those who need to can actually reach him.
