Intelligence Reform: Hearings before the Select Committee on Intelligence, United States Senate, One Hundred Tenth Congress, January 23 and 25, 2007   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the opening statement of John D. Rockefeller: "The central question before us today is whether the promise of intelligence reform has been fully realized. Intelligence is our first line of defense against threats to our national interest. I can hear those words coming out of John Warner's mouth. You really can't do much of anything these days without the right intelligence. And, as the Committee's worldwide threat hearing on January 11th made very plain, the threats we face now as a Nation are serious, persistent, complex, and growing. Today, we are focusing on the Office of the Director of National Intelligence itself, and an examination of the consolidated budget and personnel authorities we vested in the Director position. On Thursday we will hold a second open hearing devoted to the examination of the implementation and reforms at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John D. Rockefeller; Christopher S. Bond; Mary Margaret Graham; Kathleen Turner; John S. Pistole; Charles E. Allen; Cathy L. Lanier; James W. Spears; and John C. Gannon.
