Intelligence community: time for reform?
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Georgetown University. School of Foreign Service
Transcripts of the video interviews from Dean Peter Krogh Foreign Affairs Digital Archives.
Two years after a sensational spying scandal, the infamous Ames case, and at a time when Congress cut funding amid charges of ineptness at the Central Intelligence Agency, moderator Peter Krogh sits down with then Deputy Director of the CIA George Tenet to discuss the agency's role in a post-Cold War world. With the demise of the Soviet Union, the CIA no longer had a clear mission, and its purpose came into question. Tenet identifies ongoing threats and new concerns for the future. He observes that as long as the agency can provide new information on relevant issues, it will be a valuable tool for the government in combating terrorism, technology infiltration, organized crime, narcotic trafficking, and pariah states such as Iraq and Iran. He also calls on the integration of human and technological means to gather intelligence in the most effective way. Co-Chair of the Work Group on Intelligence Reform, Roy Godson, joins the discussion to underline the continued necessity of espionage and covert operations to keep the United States secure against multiple threats.
