                     Committee Statement and Views


                              A. OVERVIEW

    In an era of asymmetric threats, intelligence continues to 
be one of the nation's most fundamental national security 
tools. A well-resourced, well-managed, and well-trained 
Intelligence Community is the nation's first line of defense 
against terrorists, proliferators of weapons of mass 
destruction, and other global actors who would do America harm.
    The Committee strongly supports the brave women and men of 
America's intelligence agencies and appreciates the personal 
sacrifices, overseas deployments, and enormous risks they and 
their families undertake to preserve our freedom.
    Most of the nation's intelligence successes, of which there 
are many, cannot be discussed in an unclassified report. So, 
too, some of the biggest intelligence gaps cannot be written 
about publicly. The Committee has conducted dozens of 
classified hearings, briefings, and site visits to understand 
the threats, assess our capabilities, and realign resources to 
match the threats properly.
    The Committee's principal concern continues to be that al-
Qaeda is stronger today than at any time since September 11, 
2001. Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri remain at large, 
likely in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas in Pakistan. 
Al-Qaeda is not the only terrorist group to grow in strength 
over the past seven years. Hezbollah and Hamas have become more 
capable and more determined. Dangerous states, including Syria, 
continue to pursue nuclear capabilities. There is the 
possibility that one of these states could transfer fissile 
material to a terrorist group. The Committee is convinced that 
this must remain our foremost worry.

                        B. THE COMMITTEE REVIEW

    The Committee completed its review of the President's 
fiscal year 2009 budget request, carrying out its annual 
responsibility to prepare an authorization based on close 
examination of the U.S. Government's intelligence programs and 
proposed expenditures.
    Over the past two months, the Committee conducted 14 full 
committee-level budget hearings and briefings on numerous 
topics, including the following:
     National Intelligence Program
     Military Intelligence Program
     Advanced Research and Development
     Overhead Architecture
     Human Intelligence
     Covert Action
     Human Capital
     Cybersecurity
    In addition to these events, committee members and staff 
have taken numerous budget-related briefings covering all 
intelligence programs within the National Intelligence Program, 
the Military Intelligence Program, and the Information System 
Security Program.
    As always, the Committee's legislative and budgetary 
actions are based on more than these budget-specific hearings 
and briefings. The actions taken in this bill are the result of 
the Committee's ongoing, rigorous oversight of the U.S. 
Intelligence Community throughout the year. This oversight 
activity includes scores of committee and subcommittee hearings 
and briefings; site visits and fact-finding trips; reviews of 
congressionally-directed reports; and studies of intelligence 
capabilities, strategies, plans, and challenges.

                           C. THE LEGISLATION

    The bill and accompanying classified Schedule of 
Authorizations includes the Committee's recommended 
authorizations for the Intelligence Community for fiscal year 
2009. This includes an authorization for the intelligence 
portion of the fiscal year 2009 bridge supplemental request to 
fund counterterrorism operations as well as operations in Iraq 
and Afghanistan. At the time of consideration of H.R. 5959, the 
Committee had not received the Administration's full emergency 
supplemental funding request for fiscal year 2009. The 
Committee will consider that proposal at a later time.
    H.R. 5959 improves U.S. intelligence capabilities in 
several important respects.
    First, the bill invests in people, our most important 
resource. It adds funding to enhance human intelligence 
(HUMINT) collection and provides much-needed funds for other 
enduring and emerging global security issues, such as 
challenges faced in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
    The bill continues the Committee's longstanding commitment 
to improving language capabilities in the Intelligence 
Community, adding both funding and reporting requirements in 
order to improve oversight of this perennial problem area.
    The bill mandates implementation of security clearance 
reform to allow first and second generation Americans, many of 
whom may have critical language skills, to serve in the 
Intelligence Community with proper clearances. In many 
instances, the cumbersome security clearance process has 
delayed the entry of highly-skilled applicants, or dissuaded 
them from even seeking employment in the Intelligence 
Community. The Committee has addressed a number of these 
concerns to encourage the Community to hire the most qualified 
people.
    Second, the bill enhances congressional oversight by 
ensuring that the Committee receives the information it needs 
to conduct its inherent oversight function. The Committee has 
borne witness to repeated failures by the Administration to 
comply with the National Security Act of 1947, which mandates 
that the Committee be ``fully and currently informed'' of all 
intelligence activities. These failures prompted the Committee 
to adopt two provisions to enhance reporting on intelligence 
activities to the full membership of the congressional 
intelligence committees. One provision would limit the use of 
covert action funds until the full membership of the 
intelligence committees are briefed on all covert actions in 
effect as of April 24, 2008. Another provision would restrict 
the Administration's attempts to limit information to only the 
Chairman and Ranking Member, and clarifies the information that 
must be reported to the full Committee.
    Third, the bill authorizes much of the request for the 
foundational activities of the Comprehensive National 
Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI), while expressing the 
Committee's concern about potential policy, implementation, and 
governance issues. To that end, the bill also includes a 
legislative provision requesting a presidential report on 
creating a senior advisory panel composed of representatives 
from the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the 
private sector for the purposes of providing a vehicle to 
address issues of concern. The Committee has performed an 
extensive review of the proposed CNCI, which included holding 
three hearings and numerous briefings and roundtables.
    Fourth, the Committee is also concerned that Congress does 
not have a full understanding of the magnitude of human and 
fiscal intelligence resources that have been devoted to Iraq, 
the expenditure of which often comes at the expense of fighting 
the war on terror. H.R. 5959 requires a detailed report to the 
Committee on this topic.
    Fifth, the bill addresses a number of long-term technical 
challenges in the Intelligence Community. It does so by adding 
significant resources in both the National Intelligence Program 
and the Military Intelligence Program to modernize signals 
intelligence (SIGINT) capabilities and integrate them into a 
global SIGINT Enterprise.
    Finally, despite the size of the budget request, the 
Administration did not include funds adequate to keep the U.S. 
Intelligence Community competitive in advanced technologies. 
Research and development funding is the nation's investment in 
retaining state of the art technologies. The bill adds funds to 
four agencies specifically for that purpose; and the Committee 
urges the executive branch to sustain, if not increase, this 
level of funding in future year requests.
    The Committee adopted a number of amendments to H.R. 5959 
offered by majority and minority members. The Committee is 
pleased that this bill passed with bipartisan support.

                      D. AREAS OF SPECIAL INTEREST

Comprehensive national cybersecurity initiative

    The single largest request and the most important 
initiative of the President's fiscal year 2009 budget request 
was the CNCI. Since the announcement of the CNCI and the 
issuance of the National Security Presidential Directive 54/
Homeland SecurityPresidential Directive 23 in January 2008, the 
Committee has focused much time and effort on understanding the CNCI 
and its components.
    At present, it would be fair to characterize the 
Committee's response to the CNCI as one of conditional support. 
The Committee finds a cybersecurity initiative worthwhile in 
principle, but the details of the CNCI remain vague and, thus, 
open to question. Until some of the governance, implementation, 
and policy issues are identified, debated, and resolved, the 
Committee believes that the funding request is excessive. Our 
conclusions are summarized in the following five points:
           A comprehensive, national initiative is long 
        overdue. The threat has continued to grow in scale and 
        sophistication, and our countermeasures have stagnated;
           The Administration's near-term approach of 
        securing federal government systems appears reasonable, 
        although the Committee remains concerned about program 
        management and systems engineering capabilities;
           There is consensus that an effective 
        cybersecurity initiative should be based on a ``defense 
        in depth'' approach that synchronizes the activities of 
        different elements of the government. However, the 
        various components of the CNCI do not seem very well-
        connected, nor is it clear there are adequate 
        governance mechanisms to achieve the necessary 
        coordination;
           The Committee understands the prudence of 
        delaying debate on major policy issues until the next 
        Administration, given the limited time remaining in the 
        current one. Nevertheless, the Administration has 
        addressed some important issues, and we must consider 
        how best to deal with those issues in order to achieve 
        progress; and
           For the CNCI to work as described in the 
        Presidential Directive, it will require a partnership 
        with industry unlike any model that currently exists. 
        The excessive classification of the CNCI, however, 
        militates against the collaboration necessary to 
        achieve that partnership.
    The Committee also notes that the federal government is not 
presently organized or equipped to negotiate the myriad issues 
and challenges presented by the implementation of the CNCI, 
especially those that cross organizational and jurisdictional 
boundaries. As the CNCI develops, it will be imperative that 
the government also take into account the interests and 
concerns of private citizens, the U.S. information technology 
industry, and other elements of the private sector. Indeed, the 
success of the CNCI will depend on the ability to develop and 
implement a well-defined, comprehensive model for public sector 
and private sector cooperation.
    Many of the details of the CNCI are still evolving, and an 
endeavor of this magnitude will need to be undertaken over the 
course of many years. The Committee believes a mechanism should 
be created to review the Intelligence Community's progress 
toward refining and implementing the CNCI, as well as make 
policy recommendations to the executive and legislative 
branches in the areas of governance, privacy and civil 
liberties, and regulatory issues. As a result, the Committee 
has included a legislative provision requiring a report from 
the President on options for creating a high-level advisory 
body.

Overreliance on supplemental funding

    The Committee wishes to express once again its unequivocal 
disapproval of the recurring practice of funding intelligence 
activities through emergency supplemental requests rather than 
within the parameters of the standard budgeting process. The 
supplemental funding process ensures significantly less 
scrutiny of funding requests, both within the executive branch 
and in Congress, and invites waste. It prevents authorizing 
committees from performing their functions of oversight and 
evaluation, often resulting in investment in ill-advised and 
unvetted programs. Many of these programs have out-year funding 
``tails'' that, in an era of declining budgets, will 
necessitate funding within base appropriations once 
supplemental requests cease.
    The practice of budgeting by supplemental is particularly 
egregious in the arena of intelligence activities, which by 
statute are supposed to receive a higher level of scrutiny than 
other federal funding. The Committee hopes that one of the 
first orders of business for the new Administration is to stop 
this fiscally irresponsible practice and to work with Congress 
to find funding solutions that do not bring the Department of 
Defense and the Intelligence Community to a stand-still.

Human intelligence capability throughout the world

    The maintenance of a robust HUMINT capability on a global 
basis is as much a mission priority as countering terrorism and 
supporting activity in the war theater. As world events 
continue to demonstrate, some of the greatest threats to the 
strategic interests of the United States emanate from sovereign 
nations, not from terrorist organizations or other non-state 
actors. The need for the National HUMINT Manager and other 
senior leadership in the Intelligence Community to devote 
sufficient personnel and financial resources to fulfill the 
global HUMINT mission has been a significant priority of 
Congress for many years.
    The Committee remains concerned that identified, 
meritorious HUMINT initiatives are not being funded or 
adequately supported by the Administration. Accordingly, this 
bill provides additional, targeted HUMINT funding to enhance 
the nation's capability to ascertain the plans and intentions 
of those seeking to undermine the interests and security of the 
United States.

Issues regarding Committee notification of Syria's nuclear program

    In April 2008, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) 
briefed the Committee on the construction of a covert nuclear 
facility in Syria and its subsequent destruction in September 
2007.
    Over the course of the preceding eight months, the Chairman 
and Ranking Minority Member had requested that the President 
brief the full membership of the Committee about these 
developments, which significantly impact U.S. foreign policy 
toward the Middle East and North Korea.
    Just hours before a highly-orchestrated public roll-out of 
the previously classified intelligence, the President finally 
sent briefers to the Committee. The delay was inexcusable and 
violated the National Security Act of 1947, which requires that 
the executive branch keep Congress ``fully and currently 
informed'' of all intelligence activities. Congress should be 
briefed on the threats to the United States in a timely manner, 
not simply when it is politically expedient.
    The world is more dangerous today than at any time since 9/
11. There are serious challenges to U.S. national and 
international security that require the Administration and 
Congress to work together. The Administration's clear disdain 
for the legitimate oversight role of Congress makes it 
difficult for Congress to do its part in meeting these 
challenges and keeping America secure.

Amendments to the National Security Act of 1947

    The National Security Act of 1947 is the principal 
legislative source for the executive's requirement to keep the 
congressional intelligence committees informed of the nation's 
intelligence activities. As the Committee has noted, this 
obligation is absolutely critical to sound congressional 
oversight, which in turn is central to a well-functioning and 
effective Intelligence Community.
    In recent years, the Administration has, on several 
occasions, ignored the plain language of the Act. In one case, 
the Administration refused, for an extended period of time, to 
brief the full Committee membership on the President's 
warrantless surveillance program, notwithstanding that it was 
not a covert action program. In another case, the 
Administration ignored months of requests for a briefing on 
Syria's nuclear program, despite the fact that the 
Administration was preparing to brief reporters on the same 
issue and had already briefed foreign nations on the issue.
    This is unacceptable. For this reason, the Committee has 
included several amendments to the reporting requirements of 
the Act. These amendments are intended to clarify that the 
obligation to report to the committees is not negotiable. It is 
not an obligation that the President can ignore at his 
discretion. It is not an obligation that can be evaded by 
claiming that briefing the congressional intelligence 
committees will require other committees to be briefed. It is 
not an obligation that can be evaded by broad assertions of 
executive power.

Diversity in the intelligence community

    The Committee is committed to increasing diversity in the 
Intelligence Community and notes with approval that the DNI 
identified treating ``diversity as a strategic mission 
imperative'' in his 100-day and 500-day plans. In particular, 
the DNI has stated that one of his goals is to improve the 
recruiting, hiring, and retention of first and second 
generation Americans. Indeed, across the community, minority 
hiring is at a five-year high. Despite this progress, the 
Intelligence Community overall is still substantially behind 
the civilian labor force and the federal workforce in minority 
and female representation. This gap is even more apparent in 
core mission areas and management positions, especially at the 
highest levels.
    The Committee believes that the DNI's stated commitment 
should show measurable results. Unfortunately, several 
indicators within the Office of the Director of National 
Intelligence (ODNI) show a lack of attention and commitment to 
diversity. For example, the ODNI is below average in the 
Intelligence Community for minority representation, and is 
significantly below average in the Intelligence Community in 
its hiring of minorities. In particular, the DNI's Office of 
Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity has suffered 
significant budget cuts over the past three years, despite 
taking on new mandates. The DNI's commitment to diversity can 
be most clearly shown in the composition of his own office. The 
Committee hopes that the ODNI will show an improvement in 
minority representation in the future, and urges the DNI to 
hold his office to the same standards that he expects from the 
rest of the Intelligence Community.

Committee investigation into the destruction of interrogation 
        videotapes by the Central Intelligence Agency

    On December 10, 2007, the Committee announced an 
investigation into the making, retention, and destruction of 
interrogation videotapes by the Central Intelligence Agency 
(CIA). That investigation, initiated as part of the Committee's 
oversight of the CIA, is intended to ascertain the facts 
regarding the destruction of the videotapes and failure to 
notify the Committee regarding the destruction.
    The Committee's investigation is ongoing and has made 
substantial progress. The Committee has received hundreds of 
pages of documents in response to its document requests. The 
Committee has also held two hearings to take sworn testimony 
and has conducted several staff-level interviews.
    While the sensitive nature of the investigation prevents 
extensive public discussion of the investigation, the Committee 
believes that it is critical to its oversight work. The 
Committee looks forward to completion of its investigation and 
plans to issue a report documenting its findings.

Creation of a National Applications Office in the Department of 
        Homeland Security

    Last year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 
announced the creation of the National Applications Office 
(NAO) under the Office of Intelligence and Analysis to 
facilitate access by non-traditional users to national 
technical means-derived intelligence. This new office currently 
has the authority to process imagery, measurement 
andsignatures, and electronic intelligence requests for civil 
applications and homeland security purposes.
    The Committee notes the apparent care with which the DHS is 
approaching the establishment of the NAO. Pursuant to 
congressional mandate, the Committee has received several 
documents outlining the legal authorities under which NAO will 
operate. The Committee, however, remains concerned with the 
planned use of national technical means for law enforcement 
purposes, as opposed to homeland security purposes. Such use is 
unprecedented and raises significant constitutional issues. 
Therefore, the Committee looks forward to reviewing the results 
of the statutorily-mandated Government Accountability Office 
review of the Secretary's certification that NAO activities 
comply with all existing laws, including all applicable privacy 
and civil liberties standards.
    The NAO charter also requires an interagency legal working 
group to resolve any privacy, civil liberties, and policy 
issues surrounding the use of national technical means for the 
purposes of law enforcement. The Committee expects to be kept 
apprised of the group's work on these issues and on the 
development of legal parameters and guidance on the functioning 
of the law enforcement domain within the NAO.

Major systems acquisitions

    The Committee notes with concern the continued cost 
overruns and schedule delays affecting the acquisition of many 
major intelligence community systems. At the same time, the 
Committee acknowledges the effort entailed in preparing the 
DNI's 2007 Annual Report to Congress on Intelligence Community 
Program Management Plans, which compares the performance of all 
National Intelligence Program acquisition programs against a 
DNI-established baseline. The Committee is also pleased that 
one goal of the DNI's 500 Day Plan is to build acquisition 
excellence within the Intelligence Community. With Intelligence 
Community Directive 105 and Intelligence Community Program 
Guidance 105.1, the DNI is requiring practices that will 
increase the likelihood of successful acquisitions. Finally, 
the Committee applauds the DNI's recommended greater use of 
experienced systems engineers during the acquisition process.
    The Committee encourages the DNI to issue a formal policy 
establishing a procedure by which the Intelligence Community 
would be empowered to withhold incentives from companies with 
poor contract performance. Such a policy would forcefully 
demonstrate the expectations for contractor performance. 
Despite coverage of this topic in the Federal Acquisition 
Regulation, practices are not standard across the Intelligence 
Community, even within directorates of individual agencies. The 
Committee believes that standardization of policy would restore 
meaning to the use of award incentives and benefit the entire 
Intelligence Community.
    The Committee notes that the continuing consolidation of 
industry is impacting the government's ability to contract with 
independent companies when conducting major systems 
acquisitions. Specifically, the Committee is concerned about 
cases in which a single parent company has a contract for 
engineering technical assistance in support of a source 
selection and also intends to compete for the system 
development contract. The Committee urges the Deputy DNI for 
Acquisition to consider whether established firewalls are 
sufficient to prevent any potential conflict of interest in 
such cases.

Acquisition program performance notification

    The Committee is concerned that delays in informing 
Congress that major acquisition programs for the Intelligence 
Community are over cost, behind schedule, or failing to adhere 
to milestones serves to undermine good oversight. In many 
cases, the Committee has learned of a program failure only 
after millions of dollars have been wasted.
    To remedy this problem, the Committee urges the DNI to 
develop, in consultation with the Committee, a standard for 
program notification to keep the Committee fully informed of 
program issues. The Nunn-McCurdy Amendment to the Department of 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1982 provides an 
example of such a standard. The guidance should, for example, 
ensure congressional notification at the end of each quarter of 
total acquisition costs per unit for each major intelligence 
program. It should also require notification if an agency head 
has reason to believe a program will exceed the authorized 
funding by a specific percentage.

Advanced research and development

    Advanced Research and Development (R&D) is critical to the 
ability of the Intelligence Community to accomplish its 
missions. Intelligence officers must remain several steps ahead 
of their targets and adversaries. Technical innovation is often 
the key to accomplishing this goal. The Committee believes that 
the Intelligence Community's investment in R&D is insufficient 
to enable the elements of the Intelligence Community to keep up 
with both current and future challenges. The elements of the 
Intelligence Community must be encouraged and allowed to invest 
more resources in Advanced R&D.
    The fiscal year 2009 budget presents an example of the R&D 
challenge. As often happens in the Intelligence Community, the 
research budgets were held steady, or cut, to fund the higher, 
near-term priorities of Intelligence Community. The Committee 
feels that these decisions were short-sighted. For this reason, 
the Committee has increased funding for Advanced R&D above the 
Administration's request. In the future, the Committee 
encourages the DNI to ensure the allocation of necessary 
funding and personnel resources to enhance the Intelligence 
Community's R&D efforts.
    The DNI must also provide adequate resources for the newly-
created Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity 
(IARPA). IARPA was created to address long-term research 
challenges from the perspective of the greater Intelligence 
Community, rather than from an individual agency's more 
operationally-focused vantage point. While the Committee had 
initial concerns about IARPA's creation and the impact it would 
haveon the research programs of the individual elements of the 
Intelligence Community, the Committee is pleased that the ODNI has 
taken the first required steps for success. IARPA will benefit greatly 
from the selection of a Director and the stability of a dedicated 
location for its activities. The Committee looks forward to observing 
how the ODNI nurtures this organization as it develops new and 
innovative long-term research programs.

Future course for overhead architecture

    The Committee remains concerned that neither the DNI nor 
the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence [USD(I)] is 
showing an appropriate sense of urgency in charting a viable 
future course for the overhead constellation. The classified 
annex to the bill contains guidance to the Intelligence 
Community to focus on lower-risk and presumably less-expensive 
solutions to current architectural problems. The Committee 
urges the Intelligence Community to pursue evolutionary 
upgrades to existing designs as a way to reduce near-term risk, 
while at the same time exhorting the DNI to make more progress 
in defining the next-generation designs. The Committee does not 
prescribe specific technical solutions, but it does seek to 
ensure that all available technologies and existing 
capabilities are being given full and careful consideration 
before the executive branch embarks on formal acquisitions. The 
Committee also seeks to ensure that any acquisition undertaken 
is part of a clear path towards a future capability or 
architecture.
    While there is no clear consensus on the specifics of the 
way ahead, there is widespread agreement that the DNI and 
USD(I) have yet to deliver an architecture sufficiently 
compelling to win the support of Congress. The Committee urges 
the DNI and the USD(I) to develop a cohesive and comprehensive 
strategy prior to the submission of the fiscal year 2010 budget 
request.

Integration of the Counterintelligence Field Activity into the Defense 
        Intelligence Agency

    The Committee has recently learned that the Secretary of 
Defense approved the dissolution of the Counterintelligence 
Field Activity (CIFA) and the integration of its functional 
elements into the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). As part of 
this integration, the USD(I) is seeking to amend DIA's charter 
in order to, among other things, designate DIA as a law 
enforcement activity.
    The Committee is concerned about DIA's suitability to 
engage in law enforcement activities that are designed to 
investigate non-DIA personnel. DIA's stated mission is to 
collect, analyze, and manage foreign military intelligence for 
war fighters. The Agency has no experience with managing, 
overseeing, and leading criminal investigations of non-DIA 
personnel, even investigations that have a counterintelligence 
nexus.
    The Committee will continue to follow this issue closely, 
including through reports required elsewhere in this Act.

FBI's use of national security letters

    The Committee has been, and remains, extremely concerned by 
the reports from the Department of Justice Inspector General 
(DOJ/IG), which found that the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
(FBI) abused its statutory authority with respect to National 
Security Letters (NSLs) from 2003 through 2006.
    An NSL is a demand letter used by the FBI to obtain, 
usually from businesses, the records and data related to 
telephone and electronic communications, financial 
transactions, and credit reports. Unlike search warrants, they 
require no probable cause and involve no judicial oversight 
unless challenged, which is difficult to do, as 97 percent of 
NSLs impose non-disclosure and confidentiality restraints on 
the recipients.
    In a March 2007 report examining FBI activities from 2003 
through 2005 and a March 2008 report examining activities in 
2006, the DOJ/IG detailed a complete breakdown in FBI oversight 
and internal controls over these intrusive investigative tools, 
including:
           inaccurate reporting to Congress of the 
        number of NSLs issued;
           poor training on Attorney General guidelines 
        on the balance of privacy interests and legitimate 
        investigative requirements;
           the use of more than 700 ``exigent letters'' 
        that circumvented the requirements of the NSL statute;
           an absence of FBI guidelines, reliable 
        record-keeping, or effective management controls 
        regarding the use of NSLs; and
           significant problems with the FBI's process 
        for identifying and reporting to the President's 
        Intelligence Oversight Board known statutory violations 
        and policy with regard to its use of NSLs, as required 
        by law.
    These abuses are made more worrisome because of the 
enormous growth in the FBI's requests to use NSLs, including 
those which seek information related to U.S. persons.
    Committee members and staff have been provided information 
about a series of corrective measures that the FBI has put in 
place since the release of the March 2007 report. The Committee 
agrees with the DOJ/IG that the FBI has made significant 
progress toward rectifying its many failures; and the Committee 
commends the Bureau's senior leaders for their personal 
involvement in these improvements. Among the changes are (1) 
new comprehensive guidance on the proper use of NSLs, 
accompanied by detailed training for agents nationwide; (2) the 
establishment of a new Office of Integrity and Compliance; and 
(3) the establishment of an NSL-tracking database to ensure 
proper authorizations are received and accurate reports are 
provided to Congress.
    In spite of these measures, the Committee is concerned that 
no one has been held accountable for the myriad failures of 
leadership, oversight, training, or quality control, 
particularly regarding the egregious issuance of ``exigent 
letters'' that demanded information by inaccurately promising 
that an NSL or grand jury subpoena would be forthcoming.
    Furthermore, the Committee agrees with the DOJ/IG's 
conclusion that it is too early to see if these corrective 
measures will mitigate the full range of problems and abuses. 
In particular, the Committee notes the DOJ/IG's finding that 
mechanisms established by the FBI still inadequately guarantee 
appropriate privacy safeguards or minimize the FBI's retention 
of NSL-derived information. The Committee urges the FBI to 
ensure that a proper balance is reached between protecting the 
privacy and civil liberties of U.S. persons and the FBI's 
genuine investigative needs. The Committee intends to remain 
fully engaged in future NSL-related developments and attentive 
to any accountability reviews conducted by the Department of 
Justice.

Global climate change

    The Committee continues to acknowledge the critical impact 
of climate change on our national security and the inherent 
intelligence challenges of developing analytically-sound 
indicators with which to gauge the rates and types of global 
change and the likely impact on migrations, ethnic and 
international tensions, and the capacities and intentions of 
nations.
    Several reports in 2007 and 2008 projected the security 
implications of various rates of climate change, and some also 
called for more robust intelligence capacities to address these 
scenarios. For example, a report by eleven retired U.S. 
generals and admirals, published by the Center for Naval 
Analysis in April 2007, found that ``projected climate change 
poses a serious threat to America's national security'' and 
recommended that ``the national security consequences of 
climate change should be fully integrated into national 
security and national defense strategies.''
    In the near term, the prospect of a catastrophic climate-
related national security crisis may seem remote. However, the 
Committee recalls a time when people thought that the prospect 
of a catastrophic terrorist attack on U.S. soil was remote.
    To better ensure that the nation is well-positioned to deal 
with such a crisis, the Committee has authorized additional 
funds for the purpose of enhancing the Intelligence Community's 
collaboration efforts with the scientific community to address 
these challenges and to build relationships with international 
and national sources of expertise. The Committee urges the 
executive branch to use these resources as a catalyst for 
innovative, forward-looking efforts to build the capacity of 
the Intelligence Community to provide warning and strategic 
analysis in the context of global climate change.
    The Committee is pleased that the National Intelligence 
Council (NIC) is addressing the security implications of 
climate change through a National Intelligence Assessment 
(NIA). The Committee is optimistic that publication of the NIA 
and its associated research will encourage intelligence 
analysts and managers to take climate change-related factors 
into account in their ongoing assessment of many intelligence 
issues.

               Committee Consideration and Rollcall Votes

    On May 8, 2008, the Committee met in open and closed 
session and ordered the bill H.R. 5959 favorably reported, as 
amended.

                              OPEN SESSION

    In open session, the Committee considered the text of the 
bill H.R. 5959.
    Chairman Reyes offered an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute to H.R. 5959. The contents of the amendment in the 
nature of a substitute, as amended, are described in the 
Section-by-Section analysis and the Explanation of Amendment. 
The Committee considered the following amendments to the 
amendment in the nature of a substitute:
    Mr. Hoekstra offered an amendment to limit the use of funds 
authorized by the bill for purposes of prohibiting or 
discouraging the use of certain words or phrases within the 
Intelligence Community or the Federal Government. It was not 
agreed to by a record vote of 9 ayes to 12 noes:
    Voting aye: Mr. Hoekstra, Mr. Everett, Mr. Gallegly, Ms. 
Wilson, Mr. Thornberry, Mr. McHugh, Mr. Tiahrt, Mr. Rogers, Mr. 
Issa.
    Voting no: Mr. Reyes, Mr. Boswell, Mr. Cramer, Ms. Eshoo, 
Mr. Holt, Mr. Ruppersberger, Mr. Tierney, Mr. Thompson, Ms. 
Schakowsky, Mr. Langevin, Mr. Murphy, Mr. Schiff.
    Mr. Hoekstra offered an amendment to require the DNI to 
produce a new National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on the 
Iranian nuclear program, to include a reassessment of past 
intelligence relating to the program. Mr. Hoekstra's amendment 
failed on voice vote.
    Ms. Schakowsky offered an amendment to prohibit the use of 
private contractors for interrogation of persons in the custody 
or control of the Federal Government. Mr. Rogers offered a 
second degree amendment to Ms. Schakowsky's amendment, 
authorizing the DNI to issue waivers to the prohibition. Ms. 
Schakowsky withdrew her amendment.
    Mr. Holt offered an amendment to require the video 
recording of interrogations of persons in the custody of or 
under the effective control of the Central Intelligence Agency. 
Mr. Holt withdrew his amendment.
    Mr. Hoekstra requested unanimous consent to offer three 
amendments en bloc: (1) an amendment to require the Director of 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation to complete a report on 
transformation of the Agency; (2) an amendment to require 
theDirector of National Intelligence to complete a feasibility study on 
revoking the pensions of persons who commit unauthorized disclosures of

sense of Congress that resources authorized by the bill should not be 
diverted from human intelligence collection or other intelligence 
programs designed to combat al-Qaeda in order to study global climate 
change.
    Each amendment en bloc was agreed to by voice vote.
    The Committee then recessed for House floor votes and 
reconvened in open session for business two hours later.

      Section-by-Section Analysis and Explanation of the Amendment


                    TITLE I--INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES

Section 101. Authorization of appropriations

    Section 101 of the Committee report authorizes 
appropriations for fiscal year 2009 for the intelligence and 
intelligence-related activities of a list of United States 
Government departments, agencies, and other elements.

Section 102. Classified schedule of authorizations

    Section 102 provides that the details of the amounts 
authorized to be appropriated under Section 101 for 
intelligence and intelligence-related activities for fiscal 
year 2009, and (subject to Section 103) the personnel ceilings 
authorized for fiscal year 2009, are contained in the 
classified Schedule of Authorizations. The Schedule of 
Authorizations will be made available to the committees on 
appropriations of the Senate and House of Representatives, and 
to the President.
    Section 102 also contains language indicating that no 
earmarks are authorized in this Act.

Section 103. Personnel ceiling adjustments

    Section 103 provides procedures to enhance the flexibility 
of the DNI to manage the personnel levels of the Intelligence 
Community.
    This section allows the DNI, with the approval of the 
Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), to 
authorize employment of civilian personnel in excess of the 
number authorized under Section 102 by an amount not to exceed 
three percent of the total limit applicable to each element of 
the Intelligence Community. The DNI must determine that the 
action is necessary to the performance of important 
intelligence functions and must notify the congressional 
intelligence committees prior to the increase.
    It also requires the DNI to notify the congressional 
intelligence committees of the exercise of authority under this 
section.

Section 104. Intelligence Community Management Account

    Section 104 authorizes the sum of $648,842,000 in fiscal 
year 2009 for the Intelligence Community Management Account of 
the DNI. The Intelligence Community Management Account is part 
of the Community Management Account. The section authorizes 772 
full-time, or full-time equivalent, personnel for the 
Intelligence Community Management Account, who may be either 
permanent employees or individuals detailed from other elements 
of the United States Government. Section 104 also authorizes 
additional funds and personnel in the classified Schedule of 
Authorizations for the Community Management Account.
    Under Section 104, the DNI may use the authorities in 
Section 103 to adjust personnel levels in elements within the 
Intelligence Community Management Account, subject to the 
limitations in that section.

Section 105. Limitation on the use of covert action funds

    Section 105 limits the obligation or expenditure of covert 
action funds to no more than 25 percent until such time as each 
member of the congressional intelligence committees has been 
briefed on all authorizations for covert actions in effect on 
April 24, 2008.

Section 106. Prohibition on use of funds to implement ``Five and Out'' 
        program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

    Section 106 bars the use of funds authorized under the Act 
to implement a program (commonly referred to as the ``Five and 
Out'' program) requiring the mandatory reassignment of a 
supervisor of the FBI after such supervisor serves in a 
management position for five years.

 TITLE II--CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY RETIREMENT AND DISABILITY SYSTEM

Section 201. Authorization of appropriations

    Section 201 authorizes appropriations of $279,200,000 for 
the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability Fund.

Section 202. Technical modification to mandatory retirement provision 
        of the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement Act

    Section 202 updates the Central Intelligence Agency 
Retirement Act to reflect the use of pay levels within the 
Senior Intelligence Service program, rather than pay grades, by 
the CIA.

           TITLE III--GENERAL INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY MATTERS

                     SUBTITLE A--PERSONNEL MATTERS

Section 301. Increase in employee compensation and benefits authorized 
        by law

    Section 301 provides that funds authorized to be 
appropriated by this Act for salary, pay, retirement, and other 
benefits for federal employees may be increased by such 
additional or supplemental amounts as may be necessary for 
increases in compensation or benefits authorized by law.

Section 302. Enhanced flexibility in non-reimbursable details to 
        elements of the Intelligence Community

    Section 302 expands from one year to two years the maximum 
length of time that United States Government personnel may be 
detailed to the ODNI on a reimbursable or non-reimbursable 
basis, in which case, the employee continues to be paid by the 
home agency. To utilize this authority, the joint agreement of 
the DNI and head of the detailing element is required. The DNI 
had requested authority to expand the permitted duration of 
details from one year to three years. The Committee believes 
that two years strikes an appropriate balance between the needs 
of the DNI and the needs of the elements of the Intelligence 
Community.

Section 303. Multi-level security clearances

    Section 303 amends section 102A of the National Security 
Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 403-1), which sets forth the 
responsibilities and authorities of the DNI, to require the DNI 
to ensure that the elements of the Intelligence Community adopt 
a multi-level approach to security clearances. This approach 
will help ensure that the security clearance system is flexible 
enough to allow the elements of the Intelligence Community to 
leverage the skills and expertise of persons with cultural, 
linguistic or other subject matter expertise critical to 
national security.
    Section 303 also requires the DNI to establish guidelines 
implementing the requirements of this section.

Section 304. Delegation of authority for travel on common carriers for 
        intelligence collection personnel

    Section 116 of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 
404k(b)) allows the DNI to authorize travel on any common 
carrier when it is consistent with Intelligence Community 
mission requirements or, more specifically, is required for 
cover purposes, operational needs, or other exceptional 
circumstances. Currently, the DNI may only delegate this 
authority to the Principal Deputy DNI or, with respect to CIA 
employees, to the Director of the CIA.
    Section 304 provides that the DNI may delegate the 
authority in section 116(b) of the National Security Act of 
1947 to the head of any element. This expansion is consistent 
with the view that the DNI should be able to delegate authority 
throughout the Intelligence Community when such delegation 
serves the overall interests of the Intelligence Community.
    Section 304 also provides that the head of an element of 
the Intelligence Community, to which travel authority has been 
delegated, is empowered to assign such authority to senior 
officials within the element, as specified in guidelines issued 
by the DNI. This allows for administrative flexibility 
consistent with the guidance of the DNIfor the entire 
Intelligence Community. To facilitate oversight, the DNI shall submit 
the guidelines to the congressional intelligence committees.

Section 305. Annual personnel level assessments for the Intelligence 
        Community.

    Section 305 requires the DNI, in consultation with the head 
of the element of the Intelligence Community concerned, to 
prepare an annual assessment of the personnel and contractor 
levels for each element of the Intelligence Community for the 
subsequent fiscal year. Section 305 is a new mechanism to allow 
both the executive branch and Congress to oversee personnel 
growth in the Intelligence Community.
    The assessment required by Section 305 seeks information 
about budgeted personnel and contractor costs and levels, a 
comparison of this information to current fiscal year data and 
data from the previous five fiscal years, and a justification 
for the requested personnel and contractor levels. The 
assessment also requires the DNI to state that, based on 
current and projected funding, the element will have sufficient 
internal infrastructure and training resources to support the 
requested personnel and contractor levels, and sufficient 
funding to support the administrative and operational 
activities of the requested personnel levels.
    Section 305 also requires that the assessment contain 
information about intelligence collectors and analysts employed 
or contracted by each element of the Intelligence Community and 
contractors who are the subjects of any Inspector General 
investigations. The assessment must be submitted to 
congressional intelligence committees concurrent with the 
submission of the President's budget request.
    The Committee believes that the personnel level assessment 
required by Section 305 will provide information necessary for 
the executive branch and Congress to understand the 
consequences of modifying the Intelligence Community's 
personnel levels. Section 305, therefore, recognizes that 
personnel growth must be better planned in the future to 
accomplish the goals of strengthening intelligence collection, 
analysis, and dissemination. In addition, the Administration 
must adequately fund its personnel growth plan and structure 
its resources to ensure that personnel growth does not 
compromise the implementation and execution of other programs.
    With regard to historical contractor levels to be included 
in the annual assessments, the DNI has expressed concern that 
there was no comprehensive effort, prior to the ODNI's 
contractor inventory initiated in June 2006, to capture 
information on the number and costs of contractors throughout 
the Intelligence Community. In light of the concerns outlined 
by the DNI, the Committee understands that information about 
contractor levels prior to June 2006 may need to be reported as 
a best estimate.
    The Committee is also concerned about the Intelligence 
Community's increasing reliance on contractors to meet mission 
requirements. The Intelligence Community employs a significant 
number of ``core'' contractors who provide direct support to 
intelligence mission areas and are generally indistinguishable 
from the U.S. Government personnel whose mission they support. 
Given the cost disparity between employing a civilian federal 
government employee, estimated at an average of $126,500 
annually in fiscal year 2006, and a core contractor, estimated 
at an average of over $250,000 annually in fiscal year 2006, 
the Committee believes that the Intelligence Community should 
strive to reduce its dependence on contractors. The personnel 
assessment required in Section 305 should assist the DNI and 
the congressional intelligence committees in determining the 
appropriate balance of contractors and permanent government 
employees.

Section 306. Comprehensive report on intelligence community 
        contractors.

    Section 306 requires the DNI to provide a one-time report 
by November 1, 2008, describing the personnel services 
activities performed by contractors across the Intelligence 
Community, the impact of contractors on the Intelligence 
Community, and the accountability mechanisms governing 
contractors.
    The reporting requirements of this section are designed to 
address three primary concerns. First, leaders in the 
Intelligence Community do not have sufficient factual 
documentation regarding the size and use of its large 
contractor workforce. Second, the Intelligence Community lacks 
a clear definition of the functions that may be appropriately 
performed by contractors and, as a result, whether contractors 
and government employees are duplicating similar functions. 
Third, the Intelligence Community does not have procedures for 
overseeing contractors and ensuring the recognition of criminal 
violations or the prevention and redress of financial waste, 
fraud, or other abuses by contractors. The report is intended 
to aid both the Intelligence Community and the congressional 
intelligence committees in conducting oversight and devising 
appropriate policy solutions.

Section 307. Report on proposed pay-for-performance Intelligence 
        Community personnel management system.

    Section 307 prohibits the implementation of pay-for-
performance compensation reform within an element of the 
Intelligence Community until 45 days after the DNI submits to 
the Congress a report for each element of the Intelligence 
Community, that describes, for each element, a proposed 
employee advisory group, a plan for ensuring diversity in that 
employee advisory group, a certification that all managers 
involved in a pay-for-performance system have been sufficiently 
trained on the implementing guidance for that system, and a 
description of a mechanism for employees to appeal pay 
decisions to someone outside the management chain of each 
element.
    The Committee remains concerned that the DNI is moving 
forward with a major overhaul of compensation reform without 
seeking sufficient employee input. The employees in the 
Intelligence Community should be able to make recommendations 
and advise senior managers on the creation and implementation 
of such a program. Such advisory groups should also represent 
racial, ethnic, and gender diversity. In addition, the 
transition to this new system will require greater attention 
and effort on the part of managers in the intelligence 
community. Managers should be trained on the new systemso that 
they know what will be expected of them, and how to implement the 
system fairly. Finally, because this new system leaves much more to the 
discretion of managers in setting performance expectations and rating 
their employees than ever before, the system is potentially vulnerable 
to arbitrariness, discrimination or abuse. The Committee seeks to 
ensure employees are adequately protected from such inappropriate 
actions and have adequate mechanisms to contest or appeal adverse 
decisions.

Section 308. Report on plan to increase diversity within the 
        Intelligence Community

    Section 308 requires the DNI, in coordination with the 
heads of the elements of the Intelligence Community, to submit 
to the congressional intelligence committees a report on the 
plans of each element of the Intelligence Community, including 
the ODNI, to increase diversity within that element. The report 
shall include the specific implementation plans to increase 
diversity.
    To ensure that the report is submitted in a timely fashion, 
Section 308 requires the DNI to submit the report by no later 
than November 1, 2008.

Section 309. Report on security clearance determinations

    Section 309 requires the Director of the OMB to submit to 
Congress a report on those security clearance determinations 
that have taken longer than one year to complete, including the 
agencies requesting such determinations and reasons for the 
delay. The Committee welcomes improvements that have been made 
in improving the timeliness of security clearance processing, 
but is concerned that the processing of some security 
clearances, particularly for industry, continue to take far too 
long. The report will contribute needed data for ongoing 
management by the executive branch as well as for congressional 
oversight.

                       SUBTITLE B--OTHER MATTERS

Section 311. Restriction on conduct of intelligence activities

    Section 311 provides that the authorization of 
appropriations by the Act shall not be deemed to constitute 
authority for the conduct of any intelligence activity that is 
not otherwise authorized by the Constitution and the laws of 
the United States.

Section 312. Clarification of definition of Intelligence Community 
        under the National Security Act of 1947

    Section 312 amends Section 3(4)(L) of the National Security 
Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 401a(4)(L)) to permit the designation as 
``element of the Intelligence Community'' of elements of 
departments and agencies of the United States Government 
whether or not those departments and agencies are listed in 
Section 3(4).

Section 313. Modification of availability of funds for different 
        intelligence activities

    Section 313 conforms the text of Section 504(a)(3)(B) of 
the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 414(a)(3)(B) 
(governing the funding of intelligence activities)) with the 
text of Section 102A(d)(5)(A)(ii) of that Act (50 U.S.C. 403-
1(d)(5)(A)(ii)), as amended by Section 1011(a) of the 
Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, Pub. 
L. No. 108-458 (Dec. 17, 2004) (``IRTPA'') (governing the 
transfer and reprogramming by the DNI of certain intelligence 
funding).
    This amendment to the National Security Act replaces the 
``unforeseen requirements'' standard in Section 504(a)(3)(B) 
with a more flexible standard to govern reprogramming and 
transfers of funds authorized for a different intelligence or 
intelligence-related activity. Under the new standard, 
reprogramming or transfer authority may be sought if, in 
addition to the other requirements of Section 504(a)(3), the 
new use of funds ``supports an emergent need, improves program 
effectiveness, or increases efficiency.'' This modification 
brings the standard for reprogramming and transfers of 
intelligence funding into conformity with the standards 
applicable to reprogramming and transfers under Section 102A of 
the National Security Act of 1947. The modification preserves 
congressional oversight of proposed reprogramming and transfers 
while enhancing the Intelligence Community's ability to carry 
out missions and functions vital to national security.

Section 314. Protection of certain national security information

    Section 314 amends Section 601 of the National Security Act 
of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 421) to increase the criminal penalties for 
an individual with authorized access to classified information 
who intentionally discloses any information identifying a 
covert agent, if that individual knows the United States is 
taking affirmative measures to conceal the covert agent's 
intelligence relationship to the United States.
    Currently, the maximum sentence for disclosure by someone 
who has had ``authorized access to classified information that 
identifies a covert agent'' is ten years. This provision 
increases that maximum sentence to 15 years. Currently, the 
maximum sentence for disclosure by someone who ``as a result of 
having authorized access to classified information, learns the 
identity of a covert agent and intentionally discloses any 
information identifying such covert agent'' is five years. This 
provision increases that maximum sentence to ten years.
    Section 314amends Section 603(a) of the National Security 
Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 423(a)) to provide that the annual 
report from the President on the protection of identities of 
certain United States undercover intelligence officers, agents, 
informants, and sources, also include an assessment of the need 
for any modification for the purpose of improving legal 
protections for covert agents.

Section 315. Extension of authority to delete information about receipt 
        and disposition of foreign gifts and decorations

    Current law (5 U.S.C. 7342) requires certain federal 
employees, spouses, dependents, and others, to file reports 
with their employing agency regarding receipt of gifts or 
decorations from foreign governments. Following compilation of 
these reports, the employing agency is required to file 
annually with the Secretary of State detailed information about 
the receipt of foreign gifts and decorations by its employees, 
including the source of the gift. The Secretary of State is 
required to publish a comprehensive list of such agency reports 
in the Federal Register.
    With respect to intelligence activities, the public 
disclosure of gifts or decorations for personnel and certain 
contractors in the Intelligence Community has the potential to 
compromise intelligence sources or confirm intelligence 
relationships with foreign governments and, consequently, 
undermine national security. Recognizing this concern, the 
Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) was granted a limited 
exemption from reporting certain information about such foreign 
gifts or decorations where the publication of the information 
could adversely affect United States intelligence sources. 
Section 1079 of the IRTPA extended a similar exemption to the 
DNI and applied the existing exemption to the Director of the 
CIA.
    Section 315 provides to the heads of each element of the 
Intelligence Community the same limited exemption from the 
specified public reporting requirements currently authorized 
for the DNI and Director of the CIA. The national security 
concerns that prompt those exemptions apply equally to other 
elements of the Intelligence Community. Section 315 mandates 
that information not provided to the Secretary of State be 
provided to the DNI to ensure continued independent oversight 
of the receipt of foreign gifts or decorations by personnel of 
the elements of the Intelligence Community.
    Gifts received in the course of ordinary contact between 
senior officials of elements of the Intelligence Community and 
their foreign counterparts should not be excluded under the 
provisions of Section 315 unless there is a serious concern 
that such contacts and gifts would adversely affect United 
States intelligence sources or methods.

Section 316. Report on compliance with the Detainee Treatment Act of 
        2005 and related provisions of the Military Commissions Act of 
        2006

    Section 316 requires the DNI to submit a classified, 
comprehensive report to the congressional intelligence 
committees on all measures taken by the ODNI, and by any other 
element of the Intelligence Community with relevant 
responsibilities, on compliance with the detention and 
interrogation provisions of the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005 
and of the Military Commissions Act of 2006. The report is to 
be submitted no later than 45 days after enactment of this Act.
    The Detainee Treatment Act provides that no individual in 
the custody or under the physical control of the United States, 
regardless of nationality or physical location, shall be 
subject to cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment. Congress 
reaffirmed this mandate in Section 6 of the Military 
Commissions Act, adding an implementation mechanism that 
requires the President to take action to ensure compliance, 
including through administrative rules and procedures. Section 
6 provides not only that grave breaches of Common Article 3 of 
the Geneva Conventions are war crimes under Title 18 of the 
United States Code, but also that the President has authority 
for the United States to promulgate higher standards and 
administrative regulations for violations of U.S. treaty 
obligations. It requires the President to issue those 
interpretations by Executive Order published in the Federal 
Register.
    The report required by Section 316 must include a 
description of the detention or interrogation methods that have 
been determined to comply with the prohibitions of the Detainee 
Treatment Act and the Military Commissions Act or have been 
discontinued pursuant to them.
    The Detainee Treatment Act also provides for the protection 
against civil or criminal liability for United States 
Government personnel who engaged in officially authorized 
interrogations that were determined to be lawful at the time. 
Section 316 requires the DNI to report on actions taken to 
implement that provision.
    The report shall also include an appendix containing all 
guidelines on the application of the Detainee Treatment Act and 
the Military Commissions Act to the detention or interrogation 
activities, if any, of all elements of the Intelligence 
Community engaging in such activities. The appendix shall also 
include the legal justifications of any office of the 
Department of Justice about the meaning of the Acts, with 
respect to detention or interrogation activities, if any, of 
any element of the Intelligence Community.
    To the extent that the report required by Section 316 
addresses an element of the Intelligence Community within the 
DOD, that portion of the report, and associated material that 
is necessary to make that portion understandable, shall also be 
submitted by the DNI to the congressional armed services 
committees.

Section 317. Incorporation of reporting requirements

    Section 317 incorporates into the Act, by reference, each 
requirement contained in the classified annex of this Act to 
submit a report to the congressional intelligence committees.
    Because the classified information in the annex cannot be 
included in the text of the bill, incorporating the reporting 
provisions of the classified annex is the only available 
mechanism to give these reporting requirements the force of 
law. The Committee, therefore, chooses to include Section 317 
to reflect the importance of the reporting requirements in the 
classified annex.

Section 318. Repeal of certain reporting requirements

    Section 318 eliminates certain reporting requirements that 
were considered particularly burdensome to the Intelligence 
Community in cases where the usefulness ofthe report, or 
section thereof, has diminished either because of changing events or 
because the information contained in those reports is duplicative of 
information already obtained through other avenues.

Section 319. Enhancement of critical skills training program

    Section 319 allows the head of any element of the 
Intelligence Community to establish an undergraduate training 
program for civilian employees. This is an authority similar to 
that granted to the Secretary of Defense under section 16 of 
the National Security Act of 1959 (50 U.S.C. 402 note) for 
civilian employees of the National Security Agency (NSA).

Section 320. Comprehensive national cybersecurity initiative advisory 
        panel

    Section 320 requires the President to submit a report to 
Congress outlining options for the creation of an advisory 
panel to make policy recommendations on the development of the 
CNCI. The report is to be submitted to Congress not later than 
February 1, 2009.

  TITLE IV--MATTERS RELATING TO ELEMENTS OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

      SUBTITLE A--OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Section 401. Clarification of limitation on co-location of the Office 
        of the Director of National Intelligence

    Section 103(e) of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 
U.S.C. 403-3(e)), as added by the IRTPA, provides that 
commencing on October 1, 2008, the ODNI may not be co-located 
with any other element of the Intelligence Community. Section 
401 clarifies that this ban applies only to the co-location of 
the headquarters of the ODNI with the headquarters of any other 
element of the Intelligence Community. Accordingly, the ODNI 
may be co-located with non-headquarters units of elements of 
the Intelligence Community.

Section 402. Membership of the Director of National Intelligence on the 
        Transportation Security Oversight Board

    Section 402 substitutes the DNI as a member of the 
Transportation Security Oversight Board established under 
section 115(b)(1) of Title 49, United States Code, in place of 
the Director of the CIA or the Director's designee. The 
Transportation Security Oversight Board is responsible for, 
among other things, coordinating intelligence, security, and 
law enforcement activities relating to transportation and 
facilitating the sharing of intelligence, security, and law 
enforcement information relating to transportation among 
federal agencies.

Section 403. Additional duties of the Director of Science and 
        Technology

    Section 403 clarifies the responsibilities and duties of 
the Director of Science and Technology within the ODNI and the 
DNI's Science and Technology Committee to ensure that, across 
the Intelligence Community, there is uniformity in the 
definitions of basic, applied, and advanced research goals and 
improved prioritization and coordination of science and 
technology. This section further requires the DNI to submit to 
Congress an annual report outlining the strategy for the 
development and use of technology in the Intelligence 
Community, demonstrating how applied resources map to the 
outlined goals.

Section 404. Leadership and location of certain offices and officials

    Section 404 confirms in statute that certain officers in 
the Intelligence Community are established within the ODNI. 
These are (1) the Chief Information Officer of the Intelligence 
Community (as renamed by Section 407); (2) the Inspector 
General of the Intelligence Community (as created by Section 
408); (3) the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center 
(NCTC); and (4) the Director of the National Counter 
Proliferation Center (NCPC). Section 404 also expressly 
provides that the DNI shall appoint the Director of the NCPC. 
Section 119A of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 
404o-1) previously provided that the President could establish 
the NCPC. In doing so, the President delegated to the DNI the 
authority to name the Director. Section 404 codifies that 
delegation.

Section 405. Plan to implement recommendations of the data center 
        energy efficiency reports

    Section 405 requires the DNI to develop a plan to implement 
the recommendations of the Environmental Protection Agency 
(``EPA'') report on data center energy efficiency submitted to 
Congress under Section 1 of P.L. 109-431. A brief report 
submitted by the DNI in February 2008 failed to address the 
recommendations of the EPA report and did not constitute an 
actual plan. This requirement is intended to encourage the 
Intelligence Community to develop a plan to reduce consumption 
of resources such as power and water by community data centers.

Section 406. Semiannual reports on the nuclear programs of Iran, Syria, 
        and North Korea

    Section 406 provides that not less than once during the 
remainder of this fiscal year and semiannually thereafter, the 
DNI shall submit to the congressional intelligence committees 
individual classified reports on the nuclear intentions and 
capabilities of Iran, Syria, and North Korea. An NIE may count 
as one such report for each country. The Committee encourages 
the DNI to make these reports available to other congressional 
committees with oversight jurisdiction to the extent consistent 
with the protection of sources and methods.

Section 407. Title of Chief Information Officer of the Intelligence 
        Community

    Section 407 expressly designates the position of Chief 
Information Officer of the ODNI as Chief Information Officer of 
the Intelligence Community. The modification to the title is 
consistent with the position's overall responsibilities as 
outlined in section 103G of the National Security Act of 1947 
(50 U.S.C. 403-3g).

Section 408. Inspector General of the Intelligence Community

    Section 1078 of the IRTPA authorized the DNI to establish 
an Office of Inspector General if the DNI determined that an 
Inspector General would be beneficial to improving the 
operations and effectiveness of the ODNI. It further provided 
that the DNI could grant to the Inspector General any of the 
duties, responsibilities, and authorities set forth in the 
Inspector General Act of 1978. The DNI has appointed an 
Intelligence Community Inspector General (IC/IG) and has 
granted certain authorities pursuant to DNI Instruction No. 
2005-10 (Sept. 7, 2005).
    A strong IC/IG is vital to achieving the goal, set forth in 
the IRTPA, of improving the operations and effectiveness of the 
Intelligence Community. It is also vital to achieving the 
broader goal of identifying problems and deficiencies wherever 
they may be found in the Intelligence Community with respect to 
matters within the responsibility and authority of the DNI, 
especially the manner in which elements of the Intelligence 
Community interact with each other in providing access to 
information and undertaking joint or cooperative activities. 
This section establishes an IC/IG in order to provide to the 
DNI and, through reports, to Congress, the benefits of an 
Inspector General with full statutory authorities and the 
requisite independence.
    The IC/IG will keep both the DNI and the congressional 
intelligence committees fully and currently informed about 
problems and deficiencies in programs and operations in the 
Intelligence Community and the need for corrective actions. The 
IC/IG will be appointed by the President, with the advice and 
consent of the Senate, and will report directly to the DNI. To 
bolster the IC/IG's independence within the Intelligence 
Community, the IC/IG may be removed only by the President, who 
must communicate the reasons for the removal to the 
congressional intelligence committees.
    The DNI may prohibit the IC/IG from conducting an 
investigation, inspection, or audit if the DNI determines that 
it is necessary to protect vital national security interests. 
If the DNI exercises the authority to prohibit an 
investigation, the DNI must provide the reasons to the 
congressional intelligence committees within seven days. The 
IC/IG may provide a response to the committees, including views 
on the denied investigation.
    The IC/IG will have direct and prompt access to the DNI and 
any employee of the Intelligence Community or employee of a 
contractor whose testimony is needed. The IC/IG will also have 
direct and prompt access to all records that relate to programs 
and activities for which the IC/IG has oversight 
responsibility. Failure to cooperate will be grounds for 
appropriate administrative action.
    The IC/IG will have subpoena authority. However, 
information within the possession of the United States 
Government must be obtained through other procedures. Subject 
to the DNI's concurrence, the IC/IG may request information 
from any department, agency, or element of the U.S. Government. 
Such information must be provided to the IC/IG insofar as 
practicable and not in violation of law or regulation.
    The IC/IG must submit semiannual reports to the DNI that 
include a description of significant problems relating to the 
programs and operations of the Intelligence Community and to 
the relationships between the elements of the Intelligence 
Community. The reports must include a description of IC/IG 
recommendations and a statement as to whether corrective action 
has been completed. The IC/IG shall provide any portion of the 
report involving a component of a department of the U.S. 
Government to the head of that department simultaneously with 
submission of the report to the DNI. Within 30 days of receipt, 
the DNI must submit each semiannual report to Congress as 
transmitted by the IC/IG.
    The IC/IG must report immediately to the DNI particularly 
serious or flagrant violations of law. Within seven days, the 
DNI must transmit those reports to the congressional 
intelligence committees together with any comments. In the 
event the IC/IG is unable to resolve differences with the DNI, 
the IC/IG is authorized to report a serious or flagrant 
violation of law directly to the congressional intelligence 
committees. Reports to the congressional intelligence 
committees are also required with respect to investigations 
concerning high-ranking officials in the Intelligence 
Community.
    Employees of the Intelligence Community or employees of 
contractors who intend to report to Congress an ``urgent 
concern,'' such as a violation of law or Executive Order, a 
false statement to Congress, or a willful withholding from 
Congress, may report such complaints and supporting information 
to the IC/IG. Following a review by the IC/IG to determine the 
credibility of the complaint or information, the IC/IG must 
transmit such complaint and information to the DNI. On 
receiving the complaints or information from the IC/IG together 
with the IC/IG's credibility determination, the DNI must 
transmit the complaint or information to the congressional 
intelligence committees. If the IC/IG does not find a complaint 
or information to be credible, the reporting individual may 
submit the matter directly to the congressional intelligence 
committees by following appropriate security practices outlined 
by the DNI. Reprisals or threats of reprisal against reporting 
individuals constitute reportable ``urgent concerns.''
    In providing this channel for whistleblower communications 
to Congress, Section 408 does not disturb, and the Committee 
intends to retain, the authoritative guidance for analogous 
provisions of the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Act of 
1998, Pub. L. No. 105-272 (October 20, 1998) as set forth in 
the findings in paragraphs (1) through (6) of section 701(b) of 
that Act, the Senate committee report for the legislation, S. 
Rep. No. 105-185, at 25-27, and particularly the conference 
report, H.R. Rep. 105-780, at 33-34, which emphasized that a 
disclosure to the Inspector General ``is not the exclusive 
process by which an intelligence community employee may make a 
report to Congress.''
    For matters within the jurisdiction of both the IC/IG and 
an Inspector General for another intelligence community 
element, the Inspectors General (IGs) shall resolve, 
expeditiously, who will undertake an investigation, inspection, 
or audit. In resolving that question, under an extensive 
subsection entitled ``Coordination Among Inspectors General of 
Intelligence Community,'' the IGs may request the assistance of 
the Intelligence Community Inspectors General Forum, a 
presently existing informal body whose existence is codified by 
this section. In the event that the IGs are still unable to 
resolve the question, they shall submit it for resolution to 
the DNI and the head of the department in which an Inspector 
General with jurisdiction concurrent to that of the IC/IG is 
located. This basic limitation addresses the concern raised by 
the DNI about the preservation of the authority of heads of 
departments and agencies over their respective departments.
    Within Congress, mutuality of oversight is assured by the 
requirement that Inspector General reports concerning 
intelligence committee elements within departments are shared 
with committees that have jurisdiction over those departments.

Section 409. Annual report on foreign language proficiency in the 
        Intelligence Community

    Section 409 provides for an annual report by the DNI on the 
proficiency of each element of the Intelligence Community in 
foreign languages and, if appropriate, in foreign dialects. The 
section also requires the DNI to report on foreign language 
training. The Intelligence Community has an increasing need for 
fluency in difficult-to-master languages and for expertise in 
foreign cultures. The information required by the report will 
allow the congressional intelligence committees to better 
assess the Intelligence Community's ability to manage language 
resources.

Section 410. Repeal of certain authorities relating to the office of 
        the National Counterintelligence Executive

    Section 410 amends the authorities and structures of the 
National Counterintelligence Executive (NCIX) to eliminate 
certain independent administrative authorities that had been 
vested in the NCIX when that official was appointed by and 
reported to the President. Those authorities are unnecessary 
now that the NCIX is appointed by and under the authority of 
the DNI.

Section 411. National Intelligence Estimate on weapons of mass 
        destruction in Syria

    Section 411 provides that the DNI shall submit to Congress 
an NIE on the history, status, and projected development of any 
weapons of mass destruction program undertaken by Syria. This 
requirement is intended to encourage the Intelligence Community 
to focus attention on Syria's efforts to develop nuclear 
weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. Section 411 also 
provides that the NIE be submitted within 180 days after the 
enactment of this Act and that it may be submitted in 
classified form.

Section 412. Annual report on intelligence resources dedicated to Iraq 
        and Afghanistan

    Section 412 requires the DNI to submit to the congressional 
intelligence committees an annual report on the intelligence 
resources dedicated to Iraq and Afghanistan during the 
preceding year.

Section 413. Ombudsman for intelligence community security clearances

    Section 413 requires the DNI to appoint an ombudsman for 
security clearances in the Intelligence Community. The 
Committee has learned that persons experiencing delays in their 
security clearances typically do not know where to turn for 
information or help. The lack of communication is especially 
frustrating for applicants who may seek other employment in the 
absence of notice about the process. A security clearance 
ombudsman will ensure that cases such as these will receive 
timely attention, and serve as a clearinghouse for customer 
concerns in the security clearance process.
    The provision requires the heads of each element of the 
Intelligence Community to provide contact information for the 
ombudsman to those applying for security clearances, and 
requires the ombudsman to make an annual report to the 
congressional intelligence committees addressing the concerns, 
complaints, and questions received over the preceding 12 
months. Nothing in the Section 413 prevents the ombudsman from 
having other duties.

Section 414. Security clearance reciprocity

    Section 414 requires the IC/IG to conduct an audit of the 
reciprocity of security clearances in the Intelligence 
Community and to report to the congressional intelligence 
committees on the results of that audit. The Committee is 
concerned that lack of full reciprocity among agencies is an 
indicator of concern within the Intelligence Community about 
the quality of security clearances. The delay resulting from 
``re-clearing'' previously-cleared personnel is disruptive to 
the operations of the Intelligence Community, costly to 
contractors, and a source of great frustration for the 
individuals and organizations involved. In creating a joint, 
collaborative, efficient Intelligence Community, people must be 
able to transition efficiently between agencies and from 
industry to government.

Section 415. Report on international traffic in arms regulations

    Section 415 requires the DNI to report to the congressional 
intelligence committees assessing the threat to national 
security presented by the efforts of foreign countries to 
acquire sensitive equipment and technology and the sufficiency 
of U.S. export controls in preventing such acquisitions.

Section 416. Report on nuclear trafficking

    Section 416 requires the DNI to report to certain 
congressional committees on the illicit trade of nuclear and 
radiological material and equipment. The report must include 
details of all cases of illicit sale, transfer, brokering or 
transport of nuclear material or nuclear explosive devices, an 
assessment of the countries that pose the greatest risk of 
nuclear trafficking, and a discussion of any dissents, caveats, 
gaps, or other information that would reduce confidence in the 
assessment of the countries that pose the greatest risk of 
nuclear trafficking.

Section 417. Study on revoking pensions of persons who commit 
        unauthorized disclosures of classified information

    Section 417 requires the DNI to conduct a study on the 
feasibility of revoking the pensions of personnel in the 
Intelligence Community who commit unauthorized disclosures of 
classified information and to report the results of that study 
to the congressional intelligence committees.

                SUBTITLE B--CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

Section 421. Review of covert action programs by Inspector General of 
        the Central Intelligence Agency

    Title V of the National Security Act of 1947, entitled 
``Accountability for Intelligence Activities,'' sets forth the 
Act's basic requirements on executive branch obligations to 
keep the congressional intelligence committees fully informed 
about intelligence activities. Section 503 of the National 
Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 413b) is specifically devoted 
to presidential findings and congressional notification on 
covert actions. Section 421 of this bill augments the oversight 
of covert actions by requiring that the CIA Inspector General 
(CIA/IG) conduct an audit of each covert action at least once 
every three years and submit to the congressional intelligence 
committees a report containing the audit results within 60 days 
of completing the audit. To a considerable extent, this 
requirement confirms in statute existing practice and assures 
its regularity.
    The DNI has expressed concern that this audit requirement, 
and several other provisions on intelligence community reports, 
raises concerns with respect to the President's authority to 
control access to national security information. To allay any 
such concern regarding the covert action audit requirement, the 
Committee has drafted Section 421 to state that the requirement 
is subject to the longstanding provisions of section 17(b)(3) 
and (4) of the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949 (50 
U.S.C. 403q(b)(3) and (4)) that empower the Director of the CIA 
to prohibit the CIA/IG from initiating, carrying out, or 
completing an audit if the Director determines that the 
prohibition is necessary to protect vital national security 
interests of the United States, provided that the Director 
report the reasons to the congressional intelligence 
committees.

Section 422. Inapplicability to the Director of the Central 
        Intelligence Agency of requirement for annual report on 
        progress in auditable financial statements

    Section 422 relieves the Director of the CIA from the 
requirement in section 114A of the National Security Act of 
1947 (50 U.S.C. 404i-1) to submit to the congressional 
intelligence committees an annual report describing the 
activities being taken to ensure that financial statements of 
the CIA can be audited in accordance with applicable law and 
the requirements of OMB. Although the Committee remains 
concerned that CIA does not expect to be auditable until 2011, 
two years later than previously projected, the report required 
by Section 114A is unnecessary as CIA is now submitting audited 
financial statements. The requirements of Section 114A continue 
to apply to the Directors of NSA, DIA, and NGA.

Section 423. Technical amendments relating to titles of certain CIA 
        positions

    Section 423 replaces out-of-date titles for CIA positions 
with the current titles of the successors of those positions in 
a provision in section 17 of the Central Intelligence Agency 
Act of 1949 (50 U.S.C. 403q) that establishes the obligation of 
the CIA/IG to notify the congressional intelligence committees 
about investigations, inspections, or audits concerning high-
ranking CIA officials.

Section 424. Clarifying amendments relating to Section 105 of the 
        Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004

    Section 424 changes the reference to the Director of 
Central Intelligence to the Director of National Intelligence 
to clarify that the establishment of the Office of Intelligence 
and Analysis within the Department of the Treasury (section 105 
of the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004 
(Pub. L. No. 108-177 (Dec. 13, 2003)), and its reorganization 
within the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence 
(section 222 of the Transportation, Treasury, Independent 
Agencies, and General Government Appropriations Act, 2005 
(Division H, Pub. L. No. 108-447 (Dec. 8, 2004)), do not affect 
the authorities and responsibilities of the DNI with respect to 
the Office of Intelligence and Analysis as an element of the 
Intelligence Community.

Section 425. Prohibition on the use of private contractors for 
        interrogations involving persons in the custody or control of 
        the Central Intelligence Agency

    Section 425 prohibits the obligation or expenditure of any 
funds for payment to any contractor to conduct the 
interrogation of a detainee in the custody of the CIA. The DNI 
may, however, grant a waiver if the Director of the CIA 
determines that no employee of the federal government is 
capable and available to conduct the interrogation, and that 
the interrogation is in the national interest of the United 
States. Section 425 also provides that contractors conducting 
interrogations pursuant to a waiver by the DNI shall be 
governed by the same laws that would apply if the interrogation 
were conducted by an employee of the federal government.

              SUBTITLE C--DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE COMPONENTS

Section 431. Integration of the Counterintelligence Field Activity into 
        the Defense Intelligence Agency

    Section 431 requires the USD(I) to submit to the 
congressional intelligence and defense committees a report 
describing the nature of any law enforcement authorities to be 
delegated to the DIA; the legal authority under which the 
Secretary of Defense is empowered to delegate a law enforcement 
function to the DIA; and the guidelines for the implementation 
of any law enforcement authorities delegated to the DIA should 
such a delegation occur.
    The Secretary of Defense recently approved the integration 
of CIFA into the DIA. CIFA is, in part, a law enforcement 
organization with certain law enforcement authorities. As a 
result of this impending integration, the DIA is now 
considering a change to its charter in order to absorb CIFA's 
law enforcement role. The change would designate the DIA as a 
law enforcement agency. Unlike CIFA, which is headed by a 
civilian director, the DIA is directed by a military officer.
    The Committee has several concerns regarding the Department 
of Defense's pursuit of this course of action. First, the DIA's 
stated mission is to collect, analyze, and manage foreign 
military intelligence for war fighters; it has no experience 
with managing, overseeing, and leading criminal investigations, 
even those investigations that have a counterintelligence 
nexus. Second, while there are operational efficiencies 
associated with absorbing CIFA's law enforcement capabilities 
into the DIA, those operational efficiencies must be balanced 
properly against the concerns associated with military services 
conducting law enforcement activities that could implicate 
civilians. The Committee seeks to ensure that the decision to 
absorb CIFA's law enforcement authorities into the DIA 
undergoes a thorough and exhaustive legal review and that, 
should the DIA's charter be amended to absorb the authorities, 
the amendments include important boundaries to ensure that 
civil liberties are adequately protected.

                       SUBTITLE D--OTHER ELEMENTS

Section 441. Clarification of inclusion of the Coast Guard and Drug 
        Enforcement Administration as elements of the Intelligence 
        Community

    Section 441 restores, with respect to the United States 
Coast Guard, the prior definition of ``intelligence community'' 
in the National Security Act of 1947 applicable to that 
service, See (50 U.S.C. 401a). Section 1073 of the IRTPA 
modified the definition of ``intelligence community,'' 
inadvertently limiting the Coast Guard's inclusion in the 
Intelligence Community to the Office of Intelligence or those 
portions of the Coast Guard concerned with the analysis of 
intelligence. Section 441 clarifies that all of the Coast 
Guard's intelligence elements are included within the 
definition of the ``intelligence community.''
    Section 441 also codifies the joint decision of the DNI and 
Attorney General that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) 
should be within the Intelligence Community.

Section 442. Report on transformation of the intelligence capabilities 
        of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

    Section 442 requires the Director of the FBI to report to 
the congressional intelligence committees on the Director's 
long-term vision for transforming the intelligence capabilities 
of the Bureau and the progress of the internal reforms of the 
Bureau intended to achieve that vision.

                         TITLE V--OTHER MATTERS

                SUBTITLE A--GENERAL INTELLIGENCE MATTERS

Section 501. Extension of National Commission for Review of Research 
        and Development Programs of the United States Intelligence 
        Community

    The National Commission for Review of Research and 
Development Programs of the United States Intelligence 
Community was authorized in the Intelligence Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2003 and lapsed on September 1, 2004. Section 
501 renews authority for this Commission by extending the 
reporting deadline to December 31, 2009, and requiring that new 
members be appointed to the Commission. This section also 
authorizes $2 million for the Commission from the Intelligence 
Community Management Account.

Section 502. Amendments to the National Security Act of 1947

    Section 502 amends the National Security Act of 1947 (50 
U.S.C. 413) in three ways to clarify the executive branch's 
obligations to notify Congress of intelligence activities.
    First, Section 502 requires that, in meeting the 
President's statutory obligation to keep the congressional 
intelligence committees fully and currently informed of all 
intelligence activities of the United States, the President 
must provide to the congressional intelligence committees all 
information necessary to assess the lawfulness, effectiveness, 
cost, benefit, intelligence gain, budgetary authority, and risk 
of intelligence activities.
    Second, Section 502 clarifies that for all intelligence 
activities other than covert actions, the DNI's obligation to 
keep the congressional intelligence committees fully and 
currently informed is an obligation to keep the entire 
membership of the congressional intelligence committees 
informed, rather than a subset of members of the committees. 
Section 502 allows reporting to less than the full membership 
of the congressional intelligence committees where the Chair 
and Ranking Minority Member of acongressional intelligence 
committee jointly determine to agree to a written request by the 
President for reporting to less than the full membership of the 
committees.
    Third, Section 502 defines ``significant undertaking,'' as 
that term is used in 50 U.S.C. 413b(d) to clarify when the 
President is required to ensure that the congressional 
intelligence committees are notified with respect to covert 
action.

Section 503. Report on financial intelligence on terrorist assets

    Section 503 amends a reporting requirement for the United 
States Department of the Treasury. Section 503 makes annual a 
report which had previously been required semiannually and 
eliminates certain data requirements from that report.

Section 504. Notice of intelligence regarding North Korea and China

    Section 504 amends the National Security Act of 1947 (50 
U.S.C. 413) to clarify that notification to the congressional 
intelligence committees of intelligence information relating to 
North Korea or China after all or part of the information has 
been communicated to the governments of North Korea or China 
does not fulfill the National Security Act's requirement to 
keep the congressional intelligence committees fully and 
currently informed of the intelligence activities of the United

million in 2009 and $642 million over the 2009-2013 period, 
assuming appropriation of the authorized funds. Enacting H.R. 
5959 would not affect direct spending or revenues.
    The bill includes new subpoena authority that would impose 
intergovernmental and private-sector mandates as defined in the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA), but CBO expects the cost 
of complying with those mandates would be small and well below 
the annual thresholds established in that act ($68 million for 
intergovernmental mandates and $136 million for private-sector 
mandates in 2008, adjusted annually for inflation.)
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary impact of H.R. 5959 is shown in the following table. 
The costs of this legislation fall within budget function 050 
(national defense).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Basis of estimate: Section 104 would authorize the 
appropriation of $649 million for the Intelligence Community 
Management Account, which provides the principal source of 
funding for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence 
and provides resources for coordination of programs, budget 
oversight, and management of the intelligence agencies. CBO 
estimates that implementing this provision would cost $325 
million in 2009 and $642 million over the 2009-2013 period, 
assuming appropriation of the specified amount.
    Section 201 would authorize the appropriation of $279 
million to CIARDS to cover retirement costs attributable to 
military service and various unfunded liabilities. The 
appropriation to CIARDS is considered mandatory, and the 
authorization under this bill would be the same as the amount 
assumed in the CBO baseline. Thus, this estimate does not 
ascribe any additional cost to that provision.
    Intergovernmental and private-sector impact: The bill 
contains intergovernmental and private-sector mandates as 
defined in UMRA. Section 408 would establish an Inspector 
General of the Intelligence Community with subpoena authority. 
Section 501 would extend the National Commission for the Review 
of Research and Development Programs of the U.S. Intelligence 
Community, and the subpoena authority of that commission. 
Entities in the public and private sectors, if subpoenaed, 
would be required to provide testimony, documents, or other 
evidence. CBO expects that the Inspector General and the 
commission would likely issue subpoenas sparingly, and that the 
costs to comply with a subpoena would not be significant. Thus, 
CBO estimates that the total costs of the mandates would be 
small and well below the annual thresholds established in UMRA 
($68 million for intergovernmental mandates and $136 million 
for private-sector mandates in 2008, adjusted annual for 
inflation).
    The remaining unclassified provisions of the bill contain 
no mandates as defined in UMRA.

the private sector: Dan Frisk.

                             MINORITY VIEWS

    The annual Intelligence Authorization Act is one of the 
most important bills that the House passes each year. It 
provides and allocates resources to critical national security 
programs that are the front lines of America's defense and 
foreign policies and, most critically, work to detect, prevent, 
and disrupt potential terrorist attacks on the American people. 
The bill also is essential to ensure close and effective 
congressional oversight of the intelligence community.
    Although we have concerns with issues that we believe must 
continue to be addressed and resolved as the legislative 
process continues, we are encouraged that this bill avoids many 
of the contentious items that have recently prevented the 
enactment of an intelligence authorization bill and that it 
reflects areas of bipartisan consensus on critical national 
security issues. We also believe that the bill was 
significantly improved by seven Republican amendments that were 
adopted on a bipartisan basis to address important issues 
facing the intelligence community.
    Our views follow with respect to a number of important 
issues. We are pleased that many of them have been addressed in 
the bill, and disappointed that others remain unresolved. We 
look forward to continuing the Committee's efforts to move a 
bipartisan, consensus bill to enactment.

          FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SURVEILLANCE ACT MODERNIZATION

    This bill is still missing the most significant and most 
critically needed consensus legislation on intelligence 
currently pending before Congress--the bipartisan compromise 
legislation to modernize the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance 
Act that passed the Senate by a vote of 68-29 and is supported 
by a majority of the House. With the expiration of the Protect 
America Act on February 17, 2008, the Intelligence Community 
lost critical authorities to react with speed and agility to 
potential terrorist threats around the world. The problem will 
soon be even further compounded when authority under existing 
certifications expires.
    It is irresponsible for the Democratic leadership of the 
House to continue to abuse its power to block vital national 
security legislation that the Senate passed on an overwhelming 
bipartisan basis, that a majority of the House has indicated 
that it will support on a bipartisan basis, and that the 
President has indicated that he will sign. Congresswoman 
Heather Wilson offered an amendment to include this vitally 
needed legislation in the bill. The amendment received 
bipartisan support but was not adopted by a vote of 10-11.
    The remarks of two Democratic members of the Committee 
during the markup recognizing the importance of FISA 
modernization to our national security and the urgency of 
completing action only reinforce the consensus that this issue 
must be dealt with immediately. We will continue to work with 
our colleagues on a bipartisan basis to enact the compromise 
legislation passed by the Senate at the earliest opportunity.

                                EARMARKS

    Last year, the House adopted a motion by Ranking Republican 
Pete Hoekstra to instruct House conferees on the Fiscal Year 
2008 Intelligence Authorization to remove all earmarks from the 
bill by a bipartisan vote of 249-160. Those instructions were 
nonetheless disregarded by House conferees. This year, the 
Committee--by a bipartisan vote of 17-4--adopted an amendment 
by Congressman Hoekstra to remove all earmarks, including an 
earmark in the bill text for the National Drug Intelligence 
Center.
    As a number of incidents have illustrated in previous years 
up to last year, our intelligence programs should be based on 
only one primary consideration--what best ensures that the 
intelligence community is able to do its job in the interest of 
the national security of the United States. Our priority should 
be those programs that the members of this Committee have 
collectively taken a careful look at, debated, and determined 
where money should be spent with input from the intelligence 
community--not member projects which all too often can be 
directed to parochial interests or wasteful spending rather 
than the national interest.
    The Committee's bipartisan vote to remove earmarks from 
this year's bill is an unprecedented step that we hope will set 
an example for this Committee as well as other legislation 
moving forward.

                    NATIONAL SECURITY ACT AMENDMENTS

    It is likely that there is no single current issue on which 
there is a stronger bipartisan consensus than our shared deep 
concern that the Administration is not fulfilling its statutory 
duty to keep each member of the Committee fully and currently 
informed with respect to certain intelligence matters. In the 
past year alone, Chairman Reyes and Ranking Member Hoekstra 
jointly called on the President to brief the Members of the 
Committee with respect to intelligence regarding the al Kibar 
facility in Syria, which was subsequently disclosed to the 
public on the same afternoon that Committee members were 
finally briefed, several months later. With respect to another 
matter, the Administration refuses to brief all Members of the 
Committee even though it has briefed five members of the 
Committee staff. This follows other incidents in which no 
member of the Committee was briefed in a timely fashion, if at 
all, with respect to critical and sensitive matters within the 
scope of the statutory duty to report. It is clear that reforms 
are necessary.
    Section 502 of the bill makes amendments to certain 
congressional notification procedures of the National Security 
Act of 1947. It is the product of bipartisan discussion and 
agreement between Chairman Reyes and Ranking Member Hoekstra 
and includes language suggested by both. The provision 
expressly provides that information briefed to the Committee 
reporting on activities other than covert actions shall be made 
available toeach member of the Committee, unless the President 
requests in writing that access to the information be limited and 
details extraordinary circumstances justifying the request. In the 
event of such a request to limit access, the Chairman and Ranking 
Member of the Committee may jointly determine whether and how to limit 
access to the material within the Committee. Absent such an agreement, 
access to the information or material will be limited.
    In our view, this provision does two critical things. 
First, it sets forth a statutory presumption that information 
briefed to the Committee should be made available to each 
member of the Committee rather than restricted to the Chairman 
and Ranking Member. Second, it provides a mechanism to permit 
exceptions when legitimate extraordinary circumstances arise 
impacting national security. We believe that this provision 
reflects a better balance than the current practice. It 
respects the Constitutional duty of the President to protect 
national security information by providing a mechanism to 
request that access to the information be limited. It also 
respects the Constitutional authority of the House to organize 
itself and to determine how to share information within the 
Committee. Ultimately, these interests are balanced and 
resolved by requiring a clear bipartisan consensus to override 
any request by the President to limit access to information.
    We are concerned that the new enhanced reporting 
requirements provided for in paragraph (a) of Section 502 of 
the bill are too prescriptive and burdensome and may not be 
practically workable. We hope that these provisions can be 
perfected as the bill moves forward in the legislative process. 
On the whole, however, this provision is a significant step 
forward to strengthen congressional oversight of intelligence 
activities in a manner consistent with the Constitution.
    Additionally, the Committee adopted by a bipartisan vote of 
17-4 an amendment by Congressman John McHugh clarifying that 
the statutory duty to ``fully and currently'' inform the 
intelligence committees with respect to intelligence 
information relating to North Korea or China is not fulfilled 
if a Committee is briefed after the information has been 
communicated to the governments of those countries. We are 
extremely disappointed that this clarification is necessary.
    It should be emphasized that this amendment is not intended 
to apply outside the scope of notifications understood to be 
required under Section 501 of the National Security Act of 
1947, and is not intended to preclude communicating information 
to the Governments of North Korea or China in emergency or 
exigent circumstances.

                    NATIONAL SECURITY SPACE SYSTEMS

    We are disappointed with certain provisions of the 
classified annex with respect to national security space 
systems. National security space systems have been and will 
continue to be a cornerstone of the nation's intelligence 
collection capability. However, the current bill lacks a sense 
of urgency with regard to making decisions on overhead 
architecture and fails to address critical architectural 
shortfalls. It does not adequately fund critical national 
security space systems and is overly prescriptive in certain 
areas mandating technical solutions without complete analysis. 
Despite these shortcomings, however, we believe the bill 
authorizes a minimally acceptable level of funding for these 
systems.

                FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION MATTERS

    The Intelligence Community continues to move forward with a 
number of reform initiatives in the wake of the September 11, 
2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. Perhaps none of 
these initiatives is more important than the transformation of 
the intelligence elements of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation from a culture of law enforcement and prosecution 
to one directed at detecting and preventing potential terrorist 
attacks in the United States. While the FBI has a number of 
initiatives in place underway with respect to its intelligence 
components, we remain significantly concerned at the Bureau's 
failure to communicate a high-level strategic vision for its 
transformation, and that the process simply isn't moving fast 
enough to implement fundamental change. In addition, the 
Committee remains concerned--without determining 
responsibility--with respect to specific instances where the 
working relationship between the Bureau, other elements of the 
intelligence community, and state and local governments has 
been strained. At the same time, however, the Committee's 
oversight efforts have repeatedly suggested that the FBI is the 
most appropriate federal agency to lead domestic 
counterterrorism and counterintelligence matters, and that the 
Bureau should be given time to make its reforms work before 
more radical alternatives are considered.
    The Committee adopted by voice vote an amendment by 
Congressman Mike Rogers to require the Director of the FBI to 
submit a report to the congressional intelligence committees 
describing his long term, strategic, vision for transforming 
the intelligence capabilities of the Bureau and the progress of 
the internal reforms intended to achieve that vision. It is 
important to stress that this report is intended to be a high-
level strategic report in which the Director describes the 
fundamental principles underlying his view of the 
transformation, the desired FBI capabilities and doctrinal 
approach at the end of the transformation, and the way to get 
there. The Committee has already received numerous reports and 
briefings detailing specific organizational changes and 
initiatives, but none have satisfactorily communicated a 
comprehensive, cohesive strategic vision for the overall 
transformation.
    In addition, the Committee adopted, by a unanimous vote of 
21-0, an amendment by Congressman Rogers to prohibit any funds 
authorized in the bill from being used to implement the 
mandatory reassignment of a supervisor of the Bureau after five 
years of service in a management position, commonly known as 
the ``five and out'' policy. We believe that this policy has 
hampered optimum counterterrorism capability, just as similar 
mandatory reassignment and rotation policies have adversely 
impacted other elements of the Intelligence Community. A 
substantial portion of FBI funding is authorized in this bill. 
We believe this personnel policy is counterproductive and 
unwise and do not support authorizing funds to further 
implement it.

        SIZE OF THE OFFICE OF DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE

    The Committee shares a bipartisan consensus that the Office 
of the Director of National Intelligence, just three years old, 
has already grown in size and scope well beyond the intentions 
of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act that 
created it. By voice vote, the Committee adopted an amendment 
to the classified Schedule of Authorizations by Congressman 
Mike Rogers to stop further growth and limit the size of the 
ODNI. In particular, we are dismayed at efforts by the ODNI to 
justify further growth by attempting to omit personnel from the 
National Counterterrorism Center from its personnel count, 
despite the express statutory provision that the NCTC is part 
of the ODNI.
    The Committee on a bipartisan basis had made clear that it 
views the ODNI as a coordinator, not a doer of functions. Our 
effort is about making ODNI an effective coordinator, not 
another layer of bureaucracy that stifles the speed, agility 
and creativity necessary in today's intelligence environment. 
During the Committee's oversight efforts, intelligence 
community personnel have indicated that they are spending 
increasing amounts of time responding to taskings and requests 
from the ODNI bureaucracy with little apparent benefit. Rather 
than attempt to rationalize further bureaucratic growth, we 
hope that the ODNI will carefully revisit how to accomplish its 
core coordinating goals within the authorized personnel 
strength.

           UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURES OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION

    As we have emphasized repeatedly in the past, the problem 
of unauthorized disclosure remains a grave one. Such 
disclosures harm national security, place American citizens and 
intelligence community personnel at increased risk, and 
inevitably result in substantial consequences to the United 
States--both tangible and intangible. We are disappointed that 
the Committee has held no hearings and conducted little to no 
substantial oversight on this issue during this Congress. In 
addition, we are concerned that the issue is becoming 
increasingly politicized, sometimes under the false premise 
that there are ``good leaks'' and ``bad leaks''. The Committee 
should take a firm and clear position that no unauthorized 
disclosures of classified information should be tolerated.
    Oversight efforts during the previous Congress clearly 
established that prosecution under current laws relating to 
unauthorized disclosure has not been an effective deterrent 
tool. The Committee adopted by voice vote an amendment offered 
by Congressman Mac Thornberry that requires the DNI to review 
whether current law or administrative authorities enable the 
revocation of pensions of intelligence community personnel who 
commit unauthorized disclosures of classified information. This 
provision is identical to one included by the House in the 
Fiscal Year 2007 Intelligence Authorization Act. We hope that 
it will be enacted and that the DNI will carefully review this 
matter and other options in an effort to provide a more 
effective deterrent to unauthorized disclosures of classified 
information.

            INSPECTOR GENERAL OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

    We have significant concerns with Section 408 of the bill, 
which would create a new Inspector General of the Intelligence 
Community. While we do not oppose either enhanced oversight of 
the Intelligence Community or a capability to review cross-
cutting issues within the Intelligence Community, we are 
concerned that this provision--which is almost a quarter of the 
entire bill--duplicates efforts of Department and Agency 
inspectors general, is unnecessarily complex and unwieldy, and 
threatens to further grow the size and bureaucracy of the 
Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Committee 
Republicans offered an amendment to strike this provision, 
which failed by a voice vote. We hope to work with our 
colleagues toward a more limited and rational resolution of 
this issue.

                               JIHADISTS

    Over the last few months, the National Counterterrorism 
Center, the State Department, and the Department of Homeland 
Security issued memos instructing their employees to not use 
several terms related to Islam and radical Jihadism, including 
``jihadist,'' ``jihad,'' ``Mujahadeen,'' ``caliphate,'' 
``Islamist,'' ``Islamo-fascist,'' and ``Wahhabi.'' These memos 
also recommend using the term ``mainstream Muslims'' instead of 
``moderate Muslims.'' This new policy reportedly reflected 
advice from unnamed American Muslim leaders on avoiding 
rhetoric that could offend Muslim audiences or bolster the 
cause of radical Jihadist groups like al Qaeda.
    During Committee consideration of the bill, Ranking Member 
Hoekstra offered an amendment to prohibit the use of any funds 
authorized by the bill from being used to prohibit or 
discourage the use of those terms. The amendment should not 
have been controversial, yet it was defeated by a party-line 
vote. We do not believe that free speech should be 
controversial, nor should candid, accurate, and fair discussion 
of the self-professed nature and goals of enemies who have 
attacked the United States, sworn to kill more Americans, and 
regularly seek to violently stifle the slightest criticism of 
their activities and intentions. It is more than ironic that 
some who have complained about alleged politicization of the 
Intelligence Community opposed this amendment, which simply 
would have ensured free speech and open, objective analysis, 
and it is unfortunate that they refuse to acknowledge the 
nature of the threats posed by our enemies.
    It is important to emphasize that we do not support any 
form of religious discrimination, bigotry, or hatred, or U.S. 
officials making statements that insult Muslims or any other 
religious or ethnic group. However, this new ``speech code'' is 
in line with other efforts by U.S. Muslim leaders sympathetic 
to radical Jihadist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah to stifle 
open debate about radical Islam by banning important terms that 
describe their efforts. For example, since Hizballah, Hamas, 
and al Qaeda routinely describe their terrorist activities as a 
``Jihad'' against the West, one cannot sensibly discuss their 
activities without using this word. Similarly, Osama bin Ladin 
claims his terrorist efforts are intended to recreate a 
``caliphate,'' in an area stretching from Moroccoto Indonesia 
that was under Muslim rule in medieval times. It is impossible to have 
an honest discussion of bin Laden's philosophy without using the word 
caliphate.
    We hope that common sense and free speech will prevail with 
respect to this issue, and will continue to pursue solutions 
through close and continuing oversight efforts.

                 NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATE ON IRAN

    Recent revelations with respect to the al Kibar facility in 
Syria have suggested the need for close and careful 
reassessment of previous intelligence and assessments with 
respect to other nations. Ranking Member Hoekstra offered an 
amendment to require a revised and updated National 
Intelligence Estimate with regard to the Iranian nuclear 
program, which would have specifically required a reassessment 
of prior estimates in light of the experience with al Kibar, as 
well as a review of how that incident affects the confidence 
level of the Director of National Intelligence in current 
assessments of the Iran nuclear program. The amendment failed 
by voice vote.
    We continue to believe, however, that the November 2007 
National Intelligence Estimate on Iran was so poorly drafted 
and so seriously undermined by subsequent developments and 
intelligence--especially the Syrian nuclear facility--that it 
is necessary for the DNI to go back to the drawing board and 
start over. We will continue to monitor this issue closely and 
seek the necessary review and reassessment through the 
oversight process.

 DIVERSION OF INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY RESOURCES TO STUDY GLOBAL CLIMATE 
                                 CHANGE

    The Committee adopted by voice vote a Republican amendment 
making clear the sense of Congress that resources should not be 
diverted from human intelligence collection and other 
intelligence programs designed to combat al Qaeda in order to 
study global climate change. Despite the existence of numerous 
more appropriate government programs and initiatives to study 
this issue, pressure to use intelligence resources in 
inappropriate and nonproductive ways relative to global climate 
change continues. This provision makes clear that intelligence 
resources should not be diverted from al Qaeda for this 
purpose.

                 LIMITATION ON INTERROGATION TECHNIQUES

    The Committee defeated--by a bipartisan vote of 9-12--an 
amendment that would have limited all elements of the 
intelligence community to the interrogation techniques 
authorized by the United States Army Field Manual on Human 
Intelligence Collector Operations. We think it is important to 
highlight this vote by the Committee. Despite vigorous debate 
and comment by other Members of Congress and the public at 
large (often based on inaccurate information or supposition) we 
want to reiterate our strong view that the congressional 
intelligence committees continue to be in the best position to 
review this issue.
    The Committee's bipartisan vote emphasizes some critical 
points. First, the United States does not torture, and the 
intelligence community conducts itself in accordance with the 
law, including the treaty obligations of the United States. The 
Committee has been briefed on the interrogation techniques 
currently being used by the Intelligence Community, and has 
conducted intensive oversight of both the underlying policy and 
its application. Second, it is critical not to provide al Qaeda 
or other potential adversaries with an enumeration and 
explanation of those techniques. To do so would severely 
undermine the capabilities of the Intelligence Community to 
collect information, sometimes in critical circumstances, and 
accordingly the security of the United States.
    While we fully recognize the importance of the underlying 
issues, we believe the better solution for the substantially 
more limited programs of the intelligence community is 
continued close and careful oversight, as provided for in the 
amendment adopted by the Committee on a bipartisan basis to 
prohibit the use of contractors in interrogations by the 
intelligence community, and several provisions of the 
classified annex to the bill.
