From the opening statement of Richard C. Shelby: "In recent years, the Intelligence Community has increasingly been asked to justify its budget and therefore its role to the American public. The pressure for greater openness will persist for a long time to come, and this is as it should be. To the fullest extent possible, consistent with the protection of sensitive sources and methods, Americans should be made aware of what the Intelligence Community is capable of accomplishing. This public hearing on the Intelligence Community's assessment of the national security threat to the United States is conducted in this spirit to inform the American public about the threat to their country and their country's interests." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Toby Gati, Orrin G. Hatch. Patrick M. Hughes, J. Robert Kerrey, Frank H. Lautenberg, Richard C. Shelby, George J. Tenet, John H. Moseman, and Barbara Larkin.
