"One new creation that evolved from the 9/11 attacks was the need to coordinate intelligence Information. The Terrorist Threat Integration Center (TTIC) does just that. TTIC was announced by President Bush during his State of the Union address on January 28, 2003, with instructions to the FBI, CIA, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense to merge and analyze all threat information in a single location. During this hearing, the Judiciary Committee and the Select Committee on Homeland Security examine how the center is working, the impediments that may prevent successful implementation, and its relationship with law enforcement and information collection. Witnesses in this hearing address concerns some have raised about the future evolution that TTIC might yield. "With so many changes, we must occasionally pause and conduct a pulse check and evaluate how our new organizational creations, technologies, and procedures are performing. We must ensure that these structural changes are real and produce positive results that allow our intelligence and law enforcement communities to effectively connect the dots." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Coble, Howard, F. James Sensenbrenner Jr., Christopher Cox, Jim Turner, Robert C. Scott, John O. Brennan, Larry Mefford, Bill Parrish, Jerry Berman, James R. Langevin, and Eleni P. Kalisch.
