Intelligence reform : what should it look like?

Person InterviewedHamre, John
Examines the restructuring of the U.S. intelligence community following the September 11th attacks and the misinformation used in the lead-up to the Iraq War.
Following the September 11th terrorist attacks and the revelation that faulty intelligence on Iraq's weapons capabilities was used in the run-up to the Iraq War, the U.S. intelligence community came under intense criticism. The prominent failures of the intelligence apparatus, highlighted by the report of the 9/11 Commission, prompted calls for reform from both sides of the political spectrum. Amid allegations of groupthink, turf wars and above all, a failure to communicate in order to connect the dots, it became clear that some form of intelligence overhaul was badly needed -- the question was, what form would it take? In this episode, host Peter Krogh is joined by John McLaughlin, former Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Hamre, President and CEO of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Richard Betts, professor of political science and director of the Institute of War and Peace Studies at Colombia University, to discuss the changing goals of the intelligence community as well as the restructuring of the U.S. intelligence apparatus.
