Panel: Room for improvement at FBI/CIA
The non-profit successor organization to the Nine-Eleven commission assessing CIA and FBI reform sees room for improvement in both agencies.
In issuing a "report card," no grade was given, but the chairwoman, Jamie Gorelick, says one area of concern involves "turf battles." Gorelick says agencies are operating at cross-purposes or with ambiguous and overlapping charters. She says the agencies sometimes are not moving in the same direction.
Panel member John Gannon says there's a failure to align priorities in the U.S. government. He says Congress, the White House and the intelligence community must be aligned to prevent traditional frictions that develop in Washington.
