Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell on "Overhauling Intelligence"

Mike McConnell, the Director of National Intelligence, has published an article in Foreign Affairs called "Overhauling Intelligence." The article can also be read on-line in the July/August 2007 issue of Foreign Affairs.

Mr. McConnell published an earlier article on a related theme in the Washington Post (5-21-07). This article was called "A Law Terrorism Outran: We Need a FISA for the 21 st Century."

The key points of "Overhauling Intelligence" are summarized here:

Summary: Sixty years ago, the National Security Act created a U.S. intelligence infrastructure that would help win the Cold War. But on 9/11, the need to reform that system became painfully clear. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence is now spearheading efforts to enable the intelligence community to better shield the United States from the new threats it faces.
