"Is U.S. Intelligence Health in the Wrong Direction?"

The article presents information on the views of the author on a paper previously published in the journal. The failure of the intelligence community to warn the U.S. about the fall of the Soviet Union, the dangers posed by al Qaeda and its misread of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction capabilities is the result of no one being responsible or accountable for intelligence community performance. A director of national intelligence acting as a chief executive officer over the 15 member agencies of the intelligence community should at a minimum be able to improve efficiency by forcing a synergy of resources and hopefully intelligence among community members.
