Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Security depends on Intelligence, and in this book a leading authority discusses basic problems in American intelligence and how to fix them. for this edition he provides a new preface in which he assesses the security recommendations of the recently released congressional committee report on9/11.

Book News Annotation:

Basing his text in large part on a study he authored in 1997, published by the National Institute of Public Policy, Odom (a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and a former director of the National Security Agency) considers recommendations for the reform of American intelligence activities and organization. Among his suggestions are granting more intelligence oversight authority over all the diverse intelligence organizations to the Director of Central Intelligence; eliminating CIA obstructionism in expanding military intelligence capabilities; recognizing the need to have national managers for the separate disciplines of signals, imagery, and human intelligence; and taking counterintelligence activities out from under the provenance of the law enforcement agencies.
