ABSTRACT

From a Whisper to a Shout: The IC Should Use Its Outside Voice   [open pdf - 758KB]

From the Document: "National security is the U.S. Government's most basic responsibility, laid out in the first sentence of the Constitution's preamble: provide for the common defense. But what was once the exclusive domain of the public sector now depends on a range of actors, individuals, corporations, and entities who--unlike government--are not beholden to the public interest. Their voices are noisy, voluminous, and--because they know little about how the government protects them and even less about the role of the Intelligence Community in national security-- often ill-informed. Their increased willingness to challenge government authorities means that, unless the IC [Intelligence Community] finds its voice within this rising cacophony, its silence will facilitate its demise and, along with it, the safety and security of the nation it is sworn to protect and defend."
