The release of the 9/11 Commission report fired a much needed
and highly effective volley at the status quo within the
intelligence community. Since then, Congress and the Administration
have actively sought better ways to gather, organize, and utilize
the intelligence required for advancing America' national security.
Competing visions, interests and legislative initiatives are
devolving into bureaucratic territorial battles that could
undermine good intentions. As 9/11 commission member, and former
Navy Secretary, John Lehman recently said, "A revolution is
coming." Or is it?
While updating how our nation's intelligence community operates
and cooperates is overdue, Congress must avoid a rush to failure.
The chance to fundamentally restructure our national security
apparatus rarely comes along. Once done, the energy needed to push
reform dissipates. Flaws can go uncorrected for decades.
Please join us as our speakers and panelists explore the national
security implications of prospective intelligence reforms.
