Pretty damning. This report says that our intelligence services are still feuding and not collaborating in an efficient manner. The report also faulted the Director of National Intelligence for failing to make the agencies “achieve auditable financial statements.”
The agencies have complained that the Director of National Intelligence “sends duplicative taskings and conflicting messages to the IC (intelligence community), thereby undermining the ODNI’s credibility and fueling assertions that the ODNI is just an ‘additional layer of bureaucracy,’” the report said.
“The lack of clear communication to the IC of the ODNI staff’s authorities has encouraged some agencies to go their own way, to the detriment of the unified and integrated intelligence enterprise.”
