National Intelligence

9-11 panel set to call for intelligence shakeup.

At least one former CIA director is supporting the idea of a national intelligence director. The Nine-Eleven commission is expected to recommend creating such a Cabinet-level post when it releases its final report later this week. James Woolsey tells NBC's "Today" show that's a "wise idea." The former CIA chief says the country didn't have so many government agencies involved in intelligence when the director of central intelligence position was created. The Nine-Eleven panel is said to be recommending a national security "czar" to oversee the work and budgets of the 15 agencies now involved in intelligence-gathering. Acting CIA Director John McLaughlin said yesterday he doesn't think the move is necessary. He says all that's needed are some modest changes to the job of the director of central intelligence.
