As of June 2008, this Intelligence Community Directive has been renumbered to "102". The contents of the directive have not been changed. "The purpose of this Intelligence Community (IC) Directive (ICD) is to improve the capability of IC elements to collect, retain, and disseminate information, in order to protect the United States from terrorism and other threats to national security, while ensuring that IC activities are carried out in a manner that protects the legal rights, civil liberties, and privacy interests of United States Persons (USP). EO [Executive Order] 12333 provides that agencies within the IC are authorized to collect, retain, and disseminate information concerning USP only in accordance with procedures established by the head of the agency concerned and approved by the Attorney General (AG) (hereinafter 'USP Guidelines'). Due to variations in each IC element's USP Guidelines and interpretations of EO 12333 over the years, there is a recognized need for greater consistency in applying and interpreting EO 12333 and USP Guidelines."
