FY 98 Intelligence Report: Foreword (2)

FY 98 Intelligence Report: Foreword (2)

Source: CIA: Foreword. Director of Central Intelligence Annual Report for the United States Intelligence Community, May 1999.

Fiscal Year 1998 was a year of growth and restructuring for the Intelligence Community. While we accomplished a good deal as this report details, we have also learned where we need to refocus our efforts to improve our collection, processing and analysis.

The Senate's confirmation of the first Deputy Director of Central Intelligence for Community Management (DDCI/CM) and the appointment of the Assistant Director of Central Intelligence for Collection and the Assistant Director of Central Intelligence for Analysis and Production this past summer was a major step toward improving opportunities to manage the Intelligence Community as envisioned by Congress and the Administration. The DDCI/CM has moved quickly to develop processes and procedures needed to better manage the Intelligence Community on behalf of the DCI. Although we have a long way to go, I am optimistic that U.S. Intelligence is already moving away from its traditional "stovepipes" towards becoming a more collaborative and corporate enterprise.

In FY 1998, the Intelligence Community provided timely and useful intelligence to the policymaker, the diplomat, the warfighter and to the law enforcement community on many important issues. It supported the U.S. efforts in the former Yugoslavia with intelligence and personnel; provided real-time intelligence support on the Asian financial crisis; prevented terrorist attacks against US installations; and helped identify key international organized crime figures.

The Intelligence Community came together to work as a team in the wake of the bombings of our embassies in Africa to ensure that the terrorists who brutally killed hundreds of innocent people could not strike again. The entire Intelligence Community joined to collect and analyze critical intelligence used to identify Usama bin Laden and his organization as the responsible party. Once identified, the Intelligence Community played a vital role in planning the strike against Usama bin Laden's infrastructure.

The inability to predict the Indian Nuclear tests in May 1998 was a clear sign that the Intelligence Community needs to evaluate available resources, technology, and techniques against the threats facing us today.
