Bending a quote

From David Cameron's Remain speech --

As the historian Niall Ferguson observed, it takes a network to defeat a [terrorist] network.

Yes, but:

1. It's Niall Ferguson adapting a quote from US General Stanley McChrystal to make it about Brexit, and
2. The quote is about a single military force learning to use multiple sources of information, not enhanced coordination among multiple security services.
