I&A Reconceived: Defining a Homeland Security Intelligence Role, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Intelligence, Information Sharing, and Terrorism Risk Assessment of the Committee on Homeland Security, House of Representatives, One Hundred Eleventh Congress, First Session, September 24, 2009 [open pdf - 130KB]
From the statement of Bart R. Johnson: "Basically, the vision can be summed up by saying this: I&A will be the premier provider of homeland security intelligence information products to our State, local, and Tribal customers, of which there are about 800,000 law enforcement officers putting their lives on the front lines each and every day. To do that, we are going to be leveraging, not replicating or duplicating, what is already out there. By 'leveraging,' I mean the Office of Director of National Intelligence, the National Counter Terrorism Center, the FBI, and the other intelligence community agencies that are out there and who possess a considerable amount of information and intelligence. We are going to do that all with a mindful eye to privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jane Harmon and Michael T. McCaul.
