Intelligence Reform and the Safety of America: Have we Succeeded?

Recorded on January 6, 2005

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

On December 17, 2004 the President signed the most sweeping legislation since the National Security Act of 1947 to reform the intelligence community. Of the many provisions contained in this bill, one of the most significant is the creation of a Director for National Intelligence (DNI), mandated to oversee the United States intelligence community. While this new public law will dramatically alter the intelligence landscape, there are those who say that its arrival only marks the beginning, not the end, of this vital process. Does this legislation enhance the security of the United States? Join us as U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss addresses this and other crucial questions about the safety of America.

Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) served in the U.S. House of Representatives for four terms before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2002. In the 108th Congress, he served on five committees: Agriculture, Armed Services, Intelligence, Judiciary, and Rules.
