ABSTRACT

Director of National Security Progress Report on the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction Recommendations   [open pdf - 2MB]

"In accord with the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA), in February 2005 President George W. Bush nominated John D. Negroponte to serve as the first Director of National Intelligence (DNI). Shortly thereafter, the Presidentially mandated Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction (the 'WMD Commission'), co-chaired by former Senator Charles S. Robb and Judge Laurence H. Silberman, issued its report. Ultimately, the President endorsed 70 of the Commission's 74 recommendations, approved detailed implementation plans, and assigned implementation of the vast majority of recommendations to the DNI. Since its establishment in spring 2005, the Office of the DNI (ODNI) has closely monitored and tracked implementation of the Commission's recommendations-ensuring that each met the Commission's original intent as well as the more specific implementation plans endorsed by the White House. This has been in addition to reform efforts in compliance with, for instance, the IRTPA. In looking at the Intelligence Community (IC) a year later, a good deal has already changed. A review of the WMD Commission recommendations, though by no means exhaustive, provides a good basis for assessing the breadth of those changes and for prioritizing the ODNI's goals for continuing IC reform in the coming year."
