U.S. Intel Reform Not Taking Root, Lawmaker Says

Poorly implemented bureaucratic reforms have degraded the quality of U.S. intelligence on key international security issues, a leading Republican lawmaker complained yesterday.

“We still don’t have the intelligence community overall to give us, as policy-makers, the information that we need to make good decisions in North Korea, Iran and other places,” said Representative Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.), his party’s senior member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence.

“We’ve had problems in standing this up and developing more bureaucracy, and it’s a concern about the leadership in the intelligence community, not the folks who are working this 24/7,” he added (Eric Pfeiffer, Washington Times, March 5).
