Scaled Agile Framework - Is it Agile?

I was observing Mike Cohn's Certified ScrumMaster class today and noticed that when he listed everything under the agile umbrella (covered by the Agile Manifesto), he mentioned the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), as well as XP, lean, kanban, Disciplined Agile Delivery, and others. I agree, but not everyone does.

I'm including a great post on supporting points for the Scaled Agile Framework from author, popular speaker and originator of SAFe Dean Leffingwell. The post also includes links to articles on InfoQ and NetObjectives.

Personally, I appreciate what tooling can now do to support real-time decision making from portfolio through program management to teams. See Rally's support for SAFe and a nice post 41 Things You Need to Know about the Scaled Agile Framework.
