                     Committee Statement and Views


                              A. OVERVIEW

    In drafting the fiscal year 2010 Intelligence Authorization 
Act, the Committee sought to adopt legislative measures and 
authorize funding that would address the country's most 
pressing threats and improve national security. The Committee 
applauds the extraordinary efforts that the brave women and men 
of the Intelligence Community have put forth to protect our 
nation, but recognizes that there is still a great deal of work 
still to be done. To that end, H.R. 2701 provides the 
Intelligence Community with the necessary funding and 
intelligence authorities to continue this important work and 
simultaneously establishes critical oversight mechanisms to 
ensure that these funds are expended and these authorities are 
exercised in an effective, efficient, and responsible manner.
    The bill includes specific provisions that will assist the 
Intelligence Community in its efforts to continue the fight 
against al-Qa'ida where they have established strongholds, to 
address concerns from emerging trouble spots such as Yemen and 
Somalia, and to confront global challenges posed by such 
threats as weapons of mass destruction. The Committee has also 
included provisions to improve accountability and oversight by 
creating an Intelligence Community Inspector General and by 
establishing reporting requirements needed to assess the 
Intelligence Community's progress in closing critical 
intelligence gaps and making important internal reforms.
    As always, the Committee seeks to authorize the funds 
necessary to enable the Intelligence Community to carry out its 
mission while ensuring that the Congress and the courts are 
able to exercise their constitutional responsibility to conduct 
effective oversight on behalf of all Americans.

                        B. THE COMMITTEE REVIEW

    The Committee completed its review of the President's 
fiscal year 2010 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 11 full 
committee-level budget hearings and briefings on numerous 
topics, including the following:
         National Intelligence Program
         Military Intelligence Program
         Signals Intelligence
         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 legislation 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 
2010 and includes authorizations for the intelligence portion 
of the funding for overseas contingency operations for fiscal 
year 2010. The legislative provisions in H.R. 2701 will enhance 
U.S. intelligence capabilities in several important respects.
    First, the bill invests in human resources by building upon 
the Committee's longstanding commitment to improving language 
capabilities and increasing diversity in the Intelligence 
Community. The bill adds funding and establishes new reporting 
requirements designed to provide the Committee with the 
information it needs to assess the Intelligence Community's 
progress toward critical personnel goals. In an effort to 
encourage critical language acquisition, the bill authorizes 
the expansion of the Boren Fellowship program to include five 
high-priority African languages, and also makes permanent the 
Pat Roberts Intelligence Scholars Program, which provides 
stipends to college students studying critical languages and 
other subjects important to the Intelligence Community. The 
bill further requires the Director of National Intelligence 
(DNI) to develop a plan to increase diversity within the 
Intelligence Community.
    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. The Committee is 
concerned that there are no effective methods of measuring the 
quality of the security clearance process. In the absence of 
such measures, there are no guarantees that the system is 
functioning effectively, by granting trustworthy people access 
to classified information and preventing others from having 
those accesses. In addition, the delay in granting clearances 
frequently costs the Intelligence Community qualified 
applicants.
    Second, the bill enhances congressional oversight by 
ensuring that the Committee receives the information it needs 
to conduct its inherent oversight function. The National 
Security Act of 1947 mandates that the Committee be ``fully and 
currently informed'' of all intelligence activities. Over the 
past several years, the executive branch has failed to meet 
that standard in a number of important cases. These failures 
prompted the Committee to adopt language to enhance reporting 
on intelligence activities to the full membership of the 
congressional intelligence committees.
    One particular provision would repeal the so-called ``Gang 
of Eight'' provision, which has allowed the executive branch to 
limit notification on certain covert actions to only the 
chairmen and ranking members of the congressional intelligence 
committees. The new provision in H.R. 2701 would only allow the 
President to limit briefings pursuant to written procedures 
established by the congressional intelligence committees and 
allows the Committee to set procedures for the receipt of such 
notifications.
    The bill also strengthens the oversight mechanisms 
available to the Committee. It would create a statutory and 
independent Intelligence Community-wide Inspector General with 
a clearly-defined responsibility to report directly to 
Congress. A separate provision clarifies the DNI's obligation 
to cooperate with GAO investigations requested by the 
congressional intelligence committees to ensure that those 
committees will benefit from GAO's skilled personnel and 
thorough, objective analysis.
    In furtherance of the President's emphasis on protecting 
government information systems, the bill also makes a sizeable 
investment in foundational cybersecurity capabilities.
    Finally, the legislation authorizes funding to enhance 
human intelligence collection and provides critical funds for 
traditional intelligence challenges and other enduring and 
emerging global security issues in Asia, Africa, and Latin 
America.

                      D. AREAS OF SPECIAL INTEREST

The way forward in Afghanistan and Pakistan

    It is beyond dispute that the security of Afghanistan and 
Pakistan is inextricably linked to the security of the United 
States and its allies. The Committee notes with increasing 
concern that both the political and military situations in 
these countries continue to deteriorate.
    After an eight-year presence of U.S. military and Coalition 
Forces in the region, al-Qa'ida, Taliban, and other affiliated 
groups continue to enjoy a safe haven in Pakistan's Federally 
Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) from which they are able to 
plan and operate undeterred and with impunity. The Taliban has 
been able to regroup and gain more ground in Afghanistan, 
thereby posing a real challenge to the stability of the 
national government. The opium trade is booming, providing 
funding for the Taliban's illicit activities and attacks on 
Coalition forces. Citizens still lack the basic facilities they 
expect from their government, such as transportation and 
communications infrastructure, education, and health care.
    On the other side of the border in Pakistan, the situation 
is equally dire. The significance of the threat posed by the 
Pakistani Taliban, al-Qa'ida, and their affiliates to Pakistan, 
a nuclear-armed ally, cannot be overstated. The Pakistani 
Taliban has shown its strength in critical regions of the 
country, not only in the minimally-governed FATA, but also in 
the settled areas such as Peshawar and the Swat Valley. They 
have conducted suicide attacks against Pakistani and Western 
interests, including the attack against the Marriot Hotel in 
Islamabad, the murder of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, 
and the obstruction of U.S. and Coalition supply routes to 
Afghanistan. More recently, the Pakistani Taliban has made 
brazen attempts to expand its authority into areas dangerously 
close to Islamabad. While the democratically-elected government 
has recently taken military action against the Pakistani 
Taliban, the government will be relatively weak and unable to 
repel these threats without U.S. assistance.
    The Committee applauds the Administration's efforts to 
reemphasize the significance of these two nations and to 
approach the region with a new strategic vision. The Committee 
agrees that the United States must devote more resources, both 
financial and human, and use all instruments of power to 
overcome these challenges.
    The Director of National Intelligence has briefed the 
Committee on the Intelligence Community's plans to adjust its 
strategy to match the situation on the ground. The Committee 
will continue to monitor developments as they relate to this 
region and will work diligently to ensure that the Intelligence 
Community has the resources and support required to carry out 
its mission.

Cybersecurity

    Shortly after inauguration, the President ordered a 60-day 
review to develop a strategic framework for ensuring that all 
the various efforts to protect government information systems 
are fully integrated, properly resourced, and coordinated with 
Congress and the private sector.
    In May 2009, the White House presented the results of that 
review. This review provides a meaningful roadmap for improving 
cybersecurity in the future and outlines some of the challenges 
the nation will face in building a robust cybersecurity 
capability.
    Unfortunately, the national security establishment has come 
late to this issue. The Committee recognizes a need for a 
comprehensive effort on cybersecurity and appreciates the 
gravity and proximity of the cyber threat. The difficulty, as 
always, is in the details. As we move forward, there are 
critical oversight issues, difficult funding decisions, and 
thorny technical and policy questions still to be resolved. In 
some cases, those technical and policy questions may have to be 
resolved before the Committee has gathered enough information 
to be comfortable with authorizing significant sums for loosely 
defined purposes.
    Several standards will guide the Committee's oversight in 
the near-term:
     Funding for cybersecurity programs may need to be 
reduced or slowed until the future direction for cybersecurity 
is better defined.
     Any cybersecurity strategy or plans should include 
clear goals and metrics to enhance program and congressional 
oversight.
     There needs to be a clear doctrine for the use of 
offensive cyber capabilities.
     Securing government information systems should 
include efforts beyond building bigger and better firewalls, 
such as improving the capability to attribute attacks to 
specific government or private actors.
     Expansion of cybersecurity authorities and 
capabilities must include stronger oversight mechanisms to 
ensure that any monitoring is conducted in a manner consistent 
with laws and regulations.
     Securing government information systems will 
require both a significant increase in the number of 
cybersecurity experts in government service and a cultural 
change in the way federal employees approach computer and 
information security.
    The Committee will continue to monitor this area closely 
and looks forward to cooperating with the Administration in its 
efforts. The Committee will be prepared to authorize the 
expenditure of funds where those expenditures appear necessary 
and will offer legislation when there is a need for new 
authorities or greater oversight.

Diversity in the Intelligence Community

    The Committee has long been concerned about the lack of 
diversity in the Intelligence Community. Despite efforts to 
improve the diversity of its workforce, intelligence agencies 
continue to lag behind the rest of the federal workforce in 
this area.
    Diversity in the Intelligence Community is an operational 
imperative. For our intelligence apparatus to operate 
clandestinely throughout the world, the Intelligence Community 
needs officers of differing ethnicities. Diversity can improve 
our operational capabilities and, thereby, increase the quality 
and quantity of the intelligence our officers are able to 
collect.
    In order to achieve this operational objective, the 
Intelligence Community must adopt measures of diversity that 
match its mission requirements. Currently, in measuring 
diversity, intelligence agencies use only the six Office of 
Management and Budget-approved categories for identifying race 
and national origin. These are limited to: (1) Hispanic or 
Latino, (2) American Indian or Alaska Native, (3) Asian, (4) 
Black or African-American, (5) Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific 
Islander, and (6) White. These categories were created to 
prevent discriminatory employment and education practices, not 
to measure the foreign language skills and cultural knowledge 
the Intelligence Community needs to succeed.
    While it is important that the Intelligence Community have 
a workforce that reflects the American population, it is far 
more important that its workforce be capable of operating in, 
collecting information about, and analyzing developments in all 
parts of the world. If the Intelligence Community is to succeed 
in its global mission, it must have a global face.
    The Committee is, however, encouraged by the proposal of a 
new form for self-identification of ancestry, ethnicity, and 
cultural expertise. The form was made available for public 
comment on May 11, 2009. This is a good first step toward 
improving mission-oriented diversity, and the Committee looks 
forward to reviewing public comments.

Improving foreign language proficiency and management

    Expert foreign language capability is critical to effective 
intelligence collection and analysis. The Committee is 
encouraged that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has 
launched an initiative to double the number of employees with 
critical foreign language skills and looks forward to 
evaluating the fruits of that initiative in coming years.
    While the Intelligence Community has made significant 
strides in hiring personnel who have limited proficiency in a 
foreign language, the Committee believes that the Intelligence 
Community must intensify efforts to train these personnel to a 
higher level of professional proficiency. This degree of 
language expertise generally requires a substantial commitment 
of time and resources, but the Committee is convinced that 
serious, extended foreign language study will yield substantial 
benefits for the Intelligence Community. In particular, the 
Committee recommends that programs for overseas immersion 
language training be expanded.
    Currently, many agencies evaluate foreign language 
capabilities by tallying the number of filled billets that are 
categorized as ``foreign language required'' or ``foreign 
language desired.'' This method of accounting does not 
distinguish between the varied levels of foreign language 
proficiency. In effect, the mechanism distorts the agency's 
assessment of foreign language readiness, which, in turn, 
adversely affects the agency's ability to accurately evaluate 
its foreign language needs, plan its hiring strategies, or 
implement necessary training programs.
    In order to better inform agency foreign language plans, 
the Committee urges the Intelligence Community to adopt a more 
precise mechanism to measure the foreign language capabilities 
of individual agencies, preferably one that takes into account 
language proficiency levels.

Intelligence cooperation with Mexico and Latin America

    The Committee notes that Latin America has not received 
attention from the Intelligence Community commensurate with the 
region's importance to U.S. national security. As a result, 
intelligence agencies are hard-pressed to provide needed 
insights about the complex threats emanating from the Western 
Hemisphere, including a brutal narcotics trade and the 
proliferation of violent youth gangs that have moved into 
American cities beyond the Southwest border region.
    The Committee considers the recent announcement of the 
National Southwest Border Counternarcotics Strategy to be a 
positive indicator of the Administration's dedication to meet 
these hemispheric challenges head-on. In formulating specifics 
for the future course of this initiative, the Committee 
recommends that the Intelligence Community modify its approach 
to the region in the following ways.
    First and foremost, the Committee recommends greater 
collaboration among the elements of the Intelligence Community. 
In particular, the Department of Homeland Security Intelligence 
and Analysis Division (DHS I&A;) must do a better job of 
filtering and disseminating the unique intelligence that it 
draws from its operations on the U.S. borders and from state, 
local, and tribal resources. The Committee is pleased that DHS 
I&A; plans to deploy at least one full-time employee to each of 
the 70 Fusion Centers operating throughout the country.
    Additionally, the Intelligence Community should harness the 
expertise of the growing number of Hispanic-Americans, many of 
whom have strong cultural and linguistic ties to the region, 
including proficiency in regional dialects. To this end, the 
Committee encourages the Intelligence Community to intensify 
its multipronged efforts to attract Hispanics and other 
minorities to its ranks. For hard target countries in the 
region, such as Cuba, the Committee urges the Intelligence 
Community to tailor recruiting drives to attract exiles from 
those countries, just as the United States has done with Iraqi-
Americans in seeking to meet intelligence objectives in Iraq.
    Finally, the Committee encourages the Intelligence 
Community to strengthen its relationships in Latin America, 
particularly with the Mexican government. Mexico is confronting 
powerful drug cartels that have used billions of dollars from 
drug sales in the United States to bribe officials and arm 
themselves with American-purchased weaponry. This is a shared 
problem for which the United States and Mexico must both 
shoulder the responsibility of finding a solution.

Emerging terrorist safehavens

    In its role as both the overseer of the Intelligence 
Community and a consumer of intelligence, the Committee seeks 
to identify those areas of the world in which future threats 
lie in order to provide resources and funding to meet those 
threats. In that regard, the Committee is concerned with the 
threat of increasing instability in Yemen and the continuing 
turmoil in Somalia. History has demonstrated that al-Qa'ida and 
its affiliates seek out those countries with either a weak 
central government or significant instability to use as 
safehavens from which to plot against the United States or U.S. 
interests abroad. While al-Qa'ida's main safehaven along the 
border of Afghanistan and Pakistan is of gravest concern, it is 
essential that neither Somalia nor Yemen become the next 
safehaven for al-Qa'ida.
    Somalia has not had an effective national government since 
1991. While certain areas of the country have developed 
internationally unrecognized governments, much of Somalia, 
including Mogadishu, remains largely lawless despite 
international efforts. Today, the terrorist group ``al-
Shabaab,'' which has issued statements praising Osama bin Laden 
and associating themselves with al-Qa'ida's global ideology, is 
making strides towards taking control of Mogadishu and southern 
Somalia. Al-Shabaab's control over this territory, including 
its ports, could provide al-Qa'ida a safehaven from which to 
plan terrorist attacks.
    In 2000, Yemen was the site of the attack on the USS Cole, 
an al-Qa'ida strike against the United States that killed 17 
U.S. servicemen. Following al-Qa'ida's attacks against the 
United States on September 11, 2001, the Yemeni government took 
some effective steps against terrorism, but in recent months 
the threat has grown again, as exemplified by the September 
2008 al-Qa'ida attack against the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, which 
killed 16 civilians. Since then, al-Qa'ida elements in Saudi 
Arabia and Yemen merged to become ``Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian 
Peninsula'' (AQAP) and are believed to be gaining strength in 
Yemen. Concurrently, the al-Houthi revolt in the north and 
unrest in the south of Yemen threaten the central government 
and may divert its attention from eliminating the AQAP threat. 
AQAP is now using the conflicts in the north and south as a 
rallying cry to recruit more terrorists into its ranks.
    The Committee urges the Intelligence Community, and the 
Administration as a whole, to take immediate steps to address 
the situations in Somalia and Yemen. The Committee looks 
forward to supporting the Intelligence Community in these 
efforts.

Oversight of intelligence activities

    The Committee notes with concern the blurred distinction 
between the intelligence-gathering activities carried out by 
the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the clandestine 
operations of the Department of Defense (DOD). Congress 
chartered the Committee for the purpose of conducting oversight 
of all intelligence activities of the U.S. Government, 
including all programs funded under both the National 
Intelligence Program and the Military Intelligence Program.
    In categorizing its clandestine activities, DOD frequently 
labels them as ``Operational Preparation of the Environment'' 
(OPE) to distinguish particular operations as traditional 
military activities and not as intelligence functions. The 
Committee observes, though, that overuse of this term has made 
the distinction all but meaningless. The determination as to 
whether an operation will be categorized as an intelligence 
activity is made on a case-by-case basis; there are no clear 
guidelines or principles for making consistent determinations. 
The Director of National Intelligence himself has acknowledged 
that there is no bright line between traditional intelligence 
missions carried out by the military and the operations of the 
CIA.
    Clandestine military intelligence-gathering operations, 
even those legitimately recognized as OPE, carry the same 
diplomatic and national security risks as traditional 
intelligence-gathering activities. While the purpose of many 
such operations is to gather intelligence, DOD has shown a 
propensity to apply the OPE label where the slightest nexus of 
a theoretical, distant military operation might one day exist. 
Consequently, these activities often escape the scrutiny of the 
intelligence committees, and the congressional defense 
committees cannot be expected to exercise oversight outside of 
their jurisdiction.
    Based on recent discussions, the Committee is hopeful that 
DOD will be more fulsome in its reporting. In the future, if 
DOD does not meet its obligations to inform the Committee of 
intelligence activities, the Committee will consider 
legislative action clarifying the Department's obligation to do 
so.

              Committee Consideration and Roll Call Votes

    On June 18, 2009, the Committee met in open and closed 
session and ordered the bill H.R. 2701 favorably reported, as 
amended.

                              OPEN SESSION

    In open session, the Committee considered the text of the 
bill H.R. 2701.
    Chairman Reyes offered an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute to H.R. 2701 and moved to adopt the amendment as the 
base text for consideration. The motion was agreed to by a 
voice vote. The contents of the amendment in the nature of a

until such time as the President presents to the congressional 
defense committees a plan regarding the disposition of each 
individual to be transferred or released. Mr. Murphy withdrew 
his amendment in the nature of the substitute, pending 
revision.
    Mr. Murphy then offered an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute to the Myrick amendment, which would limit the use 
of funds for the transfer or release of individuals detained at

      Section-by-Section Analysis and Explanation of the Amendment


                    TITLE I--INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES


Section 101. Authorization of appropriations

    Section 101 lists the United States Government departments, 
agencies, and other elements for which the Act authorizes 
appropriations for intelligence and intelligence-related 
activities for fiscal year 2010.

Section 102. Classified schedule of authorizations

    Section 102 makes clear that the details of the amounts 
authorized to be appropriated for intelligence and 
intelligence-related activities covered under this title for 
fiscal year 2010 are contained in a classified Schedule of 
Authorizations. Section 102 states that the Schedule of 
Authorizations shall be made available to the Committees on 
Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives, 
and to the President.

Section 103. Personnel ceiling adjustments

    Section 103 allows the Director of National Intelligence 
(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 
exercise of authority under this section.

Section 104. Intelligence Community Management Account

    Section 104 authorizes the sum of $672,812,000 in fiscal 
year 2010 for the Intelligence Community Management Account of 
the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). The 
Section authorizes 853 full-time, or full-time equivalent, 
personnel for the Intelligence Community Management Account, 
who may be either permanent employees of the ODNI 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 
Intelligence Community Management Account.

Section 105. Prohibition on earmarks

    Section 105 prohibits the inclusion of any earmarked 
funding requests in this bill.

Section 106. Restriction on conduct of intelligence activities

    Section 106 states that authorization of appropriations for 
an activity does not grant authorization for any intelligence 
activity that is not otherwise permitted under the Constitution 
or laws of the United States.

 TITLE II--CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY RETIREMENT AND DISABILITY SYSTEM


Section 201. Authorization of appropriations

    Section 201 authorizes appropriations in the amount of 
$290,900,000 for fiscal year 2010 for the Central Intelligence 
Agency Retirement and Disability Fund.

           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. Temporary appointment to fill vacancies in presidentially-
        appointed and Senate-confirmed positions in the Office of the 
        Director of National Intelligence

    Section 302 allows the DNI to fill, in an acting capacity, 
presidentially-appointed, Senate-confirmed positions at the 
ODNI with either the deputy to the vacant position or another 
Senate-confirmed individual serving elsewhere in the 
Intelligence Community. A significant number of ODNI personnel 
are detailed from other elements of the Intelligence Community, 
and thus may be ineligible under the Vacancies Act to serve in 
an acting capacity in Senate-confirmed ODNI positions. This 
section helps avoid the potentially prolonged vacancies in 
critical positions that could result from the appointment and 
confirmation process by allowing the President to appoint 
individuals from other elements of the Intelligence Community 
with the necessary skills and background to serve in an acting 
capacity.

Section 303. Enhanced flexibility in non-reimbursable details to 
        elements of the Intelligence Community

    Section 303 expands from one year to two years the maximum 
length of time that U.S. Government personnel may be detailed 
to the ODNI on a reimbursable or non-reimbursable basis. To 
utilize this authority, the agreement of both the DNI and the 
head of the detailing element is required.
    The DNI requested authority to expand the permitted 
duration of details from one year to three years. The Committee 
believes that a two-year detail strikes the appropriate balance 
between the needs of the ODNI and the needs of the other 
elements of the Intelligence Community.

Section 304. Provisions relating to the Defense Civilian Intelligence 
        Personnel System

    Section 304 curtails implementation of the Defense Civilian 
Intelligence Personnel System (DCIPS) by prohibiting the 
transition or hiring of any new employees into the system. It 
also requires the Secretary of Defense, within one year of 
enactment, to terminate the program and transition employees 
back to the civilian compensation system that was in effect on 
September 30, 2007. The provisions requiring the return of 
employees to the previous compensation system do not apply to 
members of the Defense Intelligence Senior Executive Service or 
to an individual in an Intelligence Senior Level position, as 
defined by Section 1607 of Title 10, Chapter 83.
    If the Secretary of Defense, in conjunction with the 
Director of the Office of Personnel Management, determines that 
the DCIPS pay system should not be terminated with respect to 
covered employees, he is required to provide to Congress, 
within six months of enactment, a written report with the 
Secretary's views and his reasons therefore.
    The Committee, together with the Committee on Armed 
Services, has expressed its concern about the implementation of 
the DCIPS pay system. DCIPS would do away with the existing 
General Schedule-pay scale and replace it with a system of pay 
bands. This pay-banded system has been misleadingly named 
``pay-for-performance.''
    For the past three years, the Committee has expressed 
concerns that this compensation system lacks transparency and 
accountability, and could have an adverse impact on minorities. 
The Committee is also concerned that the system was developed 
without sufficient consultation with employees in the 
Intelligence Community. Further, the pay system is being 
implemented across the Intelligence Community without regard to 
the needs of different career fields or mission needs of the 
various intelligence agencies. In 2003, the Committee objected 
to the implementation of a similar program at the Central 
Intelligence Agency out of concern that it would have an 
undesirable impact on the workforce.
    The Committee continues to be concerned that the 
implementation of such a system has been rushed and that there 
has not been adequate time to ensure managers are properly 
trained. Human resources personnel have raised concerns that 
they will not have sufficient time prior to implementation to 
ensure all employees receive training, nor do they have final 
policy guidance. Recent training events have demonstrated that 
managers need more practice and guidance in determining 
performance objectives under the systems.
    The Committee supports the idea of rewarding performance 
and believes that the performance bonus system has not been 
effectively utilized. Certainly, the existing civil service 
system has flaws and needs reform. The Committee notes that the 
Director of the Office of Personnel Management has indicated 
his intent to reform the civilian personnel system across the 
entire federal government. The Committee believes that 
additional employees should not transition to pay-for-
performance systems prior to the implementation of a broader, 
government-wide pay reform.

                         SUBTITLE B--EDUCATION

Section 311. Permanent authorization for the Pat Roberts Intelligence 
        Scholars Program

    Section 311 provides permanent authorization for the Pat 
Roberts Intelligence Scholars Program (PRISP), which provides 
financial assistance to students who pursue studies in critical 
language specialties, area studies, and technical and 
scientific specialties. PRISP was originally authorized as a 
pilot program in Section 318 of the Intelligence Authorization 
Act for fiscal year 2004 and has continued under year-to-year 
appropriations. The program has been successful and is widely 
supported within the Intelligence Community.

Section 312. Intelligence Officer Training Program

    Section 312 authorizes the Intelligence Officer Training 
Program (IOTP), a program operated by the ODNI and built from a 
combination of previously authorized pilot programs. The IOTP 
seeks to recruit, prepare, and retain an ethnically and 
culturally diverse workforce in the Intelligence Community by 
providing grants to institutions of higher learning to develop 
courses of study in education disciplines that the DNI deems to 
be of critical importance to the intelligence mission. The 
Committee encourages the ODNI to consider awarding grants to 
institutions developing innovative methods for teaching high-
priority foreign language skills, such as those that utilize 
individualized and/or web-based courses of study.

Section 313. Modifications to the Stokes Educational Scholarship 
        Program

    Section 313 expands and strengthens the Stokes Educational 
Scholarship Program. The Stokes Program was originally created 
for the National Security Agency (NSA) to help undergraduate 
students, particularly minority students, develop critical 
skills necessary to the Intelligence Community. This provision 
extends the program to include graduate students. It would also 
make the program available to other elements within the 
Intelligence Community.

Section 314. Pilot program for intensive language instruction in 
        African languages

    Section 314 directs the DNI to establish a pilot program to 
expand the National Security Education Program/Boren Scholars 
Program to include intensive language instruction for five 
high-priority African languages. The program will utilize 
intensive immersion instruction both in the United States and 
abroad, and will likely focus on the Somali, Hausa, Amharic, 
Tigrinya, and Kituba languages. The intent of the program is to 
begin building capability in African languages spoken in areas 
where U.S. national security interests may be affected, but 
where insufficient instructional capability exists in the 
United States.

         SUBTITLE C--CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT OF COVERT ACTIONS

Section 321. Reporting on covert actions

    Section 321 changes the processes for reporting of 
intelligence activities, including covert actions, to the 
congressional intelligence committees.
    Title V of the National Security Act of 1947 requires the 
President to ensure that the congressional intelligence 
committees are kept fully and currently informed of 
intelligence activities. Section 503 of the National Security 
Act enumerates specific procedures with respect to briefings on 
covert actions.
    In the past, the Committee has struggled with the 
limitations imposed by the executive branch on reporting of 
intelligence activities. To address this problem, subsection 
(a) amends Section 501(a) of the National Security Act by 
explicitly requiring the President to brief the congressional 
intelligence committees on legal authorities, operational 
risks, resource concerns, and potential for failure at issue 
with respect to significant, anticipated, or ongoing 
intelligence activities.
    Subsection (b) amends Section 501(c) of the National 
Security Act by requiring that the procedures governing the 
briefings must be in writing.
    Subsection (c) amends Section 502 of the National Security 
Act by providing explicit guidance on how the President should 
brief the intelligence committees on legal issues related to 
intelligence activities.
    Subsection (d) amends Section 503 of the National Security 
Act by applying the same explicit guidance in subsection (c) to 
briefings on covert actions. This subsection also replaces 
Section 503(c)(2), which allowed the President to limit reports 
on covert actions to the so-called ``Gang of Eight''--the 
chairmen and ranking members of the intelligence committees, 
the Speaker and Minority Leader of the House of 
Representatives, and the majority and minority leaders of the 
Senate--if the President determines that extraordinary 
circumstances affecting vital interests of the United States 
warrant limiting access.
    This subsection replaces Section 503(c)(2) with a provision 
that requires the President to brief all members of the 
congressional intelligence committees, but implicitly provides 
for the possibility of more restricted briefings pursuant to 
the written procedures established by the congressional 
intelligence committees, pursuant to the revised Section 
501(c). This language vests the authority to limit the 
briefings with the committees, rather than the President. Also, 
in defining the term ``significant undertaking,'' the 
subsection explicitly establishes certain conditions under 
which the President is required to provide information on a 
covert action program to the congressional intelligence 
committees.
    This subsection further provides that, if a briefing on a 
finding or notice is restricted to certain members of the 
committees, the President shall provide those members with 
general information on the content of the finding or notice. It 
also allows any member of Congress to whom a covert action 
finding or notice has been reported to submit to the DNI an 
objection concerning any part of that finding or notice, who 
must report that objection to the President in writing within 
48 hours.
    Additionally, this subsection requires that the President 
maintain a record of the members to whom a finding or notice 
has been reported and provide that record to the congressional 
intelligence committee in question within 30 days.
    Finally, this subsection clarifies that, as a matter of 
construction, any reference in sections 501, 502, or 503 to a 
requirement that information be provided to the intelligence 
committees shall be construed to require that such information 
be provided to all members of those committees, except as 
provided in revised Section 503(c)(2).
    The Committee understands well the need to protect 
intelligence information from unauthorized disclosure and the 
prerogatives of the executive branch with respect to the 
protection of classified information. However, these principles 
must be balanced against the constitutional requirement for 
congressional oversight.
    Section 503 of the National Security Act attempted to 
establish a balance between the executive and legislative 
branches. Over the past eight years, the balance was tipped 
towards the executive at the expense of congressional 
oversight. That state of affairs was particularly troubling in 
light of the controversial nature of some of the programs that 
were not briefed to the full membership of the intelligence 
committees. This section resets that balance with respect for 
the executive branch's prerogatives, but with an eye on 
ensuring that Congress is able to fulfill its oversight 
responsibility.

         SUBTITLE D--REPORTS AND OTHER CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT

Section 331. Report on financial intelligence on terrorist assets

    Section 331 modifies 50 U.S.C. Section 404(m) to change the 
requirement for the United States Department of the Treasury to 
submit a report to Congress on financial intelligence 
concerning terrorist assets. The existing provision requires 
the report to be submitted semiannually. This section would 
change the law to require that the report be submitted once 
every year and eliminates certain data requirements from that 
report.

Section 332. Annual personnel level assessments for the Intelligence 
        Community

    Section 332 provides a new mechanism for overseeing 
personnel growth in the Intelligence Community by requiring 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.
    The assessment required by Section 332 must report 
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 affirm that, 
based on current and projected funding, the individual elements 
of the Intelligence Community 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.
    Section 332 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 the 
congressional intelligence committees concurrent with the 
submission of the President's budget request.
    The Committee believes that the personnel level assessment 
required by Section 332 will provide information necessary for 
the executive branch and Congress to understand the 
consequences of modifying the Intelligence Community's 
personnel levels. Section 332 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 personnel growth 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 personnel assessment required in Section 332 should 
assist the DNI and the congressional intelligence committees in 
determining the appropriate balance of contractors and 
permanent government employees.

Section 333. Semiannual reports on nuclear weapons programs of Iran, 
        Syria, and North Korea

    Section 333 requires the DNI to submit to Congress 
classified reports on the nuclear intentions and capabilities 
of Iran, Syria, and North Korea not less than once in the four 
months after enactment and semiannually thereafter. This 
section provides that the DNI may submit a National 
Intelligence Estimate on the intentions and capabilities of any 
one of the three countries in lieu of submitting a report on 
that particular country during a six-month period.

Section 334. Annual report on foreign language proficiency in the 
        Intelligence Community

    Section 334 requires the DNI to report annually on the 
Intelligence Community's proficiency in foreign languages, 
including foreign language training. The report must provide 
data on positions in the various Intelligence Community 
elements that require foreign language proficiency, the number 
of personnel hired with such proficiency, and the efforts of 
those elements to recruit, hire, train, and retain personnel 
with such proficiency. Additionally, the report requires the 
DNI to make an assessment on the feasibility of hiring foreign 
nationals previously employed as translators for the U.S. 
Government in Iraq and Afghanistan to help meet critical 
language needs in the Intelligence Community. This information 
is intended to help the Committee better assess the 
Intelligence Community's ability to manage language resources.

Section 335. Government Accountability Office audits and investigations

    Section 335 directs the DNI to ensure that Government 
Accountability Office (GAO) personnel are provided with access 
to all information from the Intelligence Community that the 
Comptroller General determines necessary for a GAO analysis, 
evaluation, or investigation of an Intelligence Community 
program or activity, when the Comptroller General conducts such 
analysis, evaluation, or investigation at the request of a 
congressional intelligence committee. The scope of this 
provision is limited to requests from the congressional 
intelligence committees.
    This provision allows the DNI to restrict access to 
information sought by the GAO if the DNI determines that the 
restriction is necessary to protect the vital national security 
interests of the United States. If the DNI makes such a 
determination, the DNI must submit a statement of the reasons 
for the determination to the congressional intelligence 
committees.

Section 336. Certification of compliance with oversight requirements

    Section 336 requires the head of each element of the 
Intelligence Community to submit on a semiannual basis a 
certification that the element is in full compliance with the 
provisions of the National Security Act of 1947 requiring that 
the congressional intelligence committees be kept fully and 
currently informed of intelligence activities.
    This section provides that, if the head of an element is 
unable to issue such a certification, he or she must submit to 
the congressional intelligence committees an explanation as to 
why a certification could not be made and affirm that the 
relevant information will be submitted to the committees as 
soon as is possible.
    The purpose of this section is to ensure that elements of 
the Intelligence Community remain current and timely with 
respect to their notification obligations.

Section 337. Reports on foreign industrial espionage

    Section 337 modifies 50 U.S.C. Section 2170b(b)(1) and (2) 
to change the requirement for the submission of a report to 
Congress on Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial 
Espionage. The existing provision requires the report to be 
submitted annually. This section would change the law to 
require that the report be submitted once every two years.

Section 338. Report on intelligence community contractors

    Section 338 requires the DNI to provide a comprehensive 
report on the use of contractors in the Intelligence Community. 
The report must include data on several critical questions 
concerning the use of contractors, including: a description of 
guidance issued by the elements of the Intelligence Community 
on the hiring, training, security clearance, and assignment of 
contract personnel; an identification of contracts in which the 
contractor is performing a substantially similar function to a 
government employee; an assessment of costs incurred or savings 
achieved by awarding contracts for the performance of specific 
functions instead of using full-time employees of the 
Intelligence Community; an assessment of the appropriateness of 
using contractors to perform the activities; and an estimate of 
the number of contracts and the number of contract personnel 
performing intelligence functions.
    These reporting requirements are designed to address the 
Committee's concerns regarding the Intelligence Community's 
large contractor workforce, including: the lack of 
documentation regarding the size and use of the workforce; a 
clear definition of the functions that may be appropriately 
performed by contractors; or procedures for overseeing 
contractors and preventing any waste, fraud, and abuse that may 
occur. The report is intended to aid both the Intelligence 
Community and the congressional intelligence committees in 
conducting oversight and devising appropriate policy solutions.

Section 339. Report on transformation of the intelligence capabilities 
        of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

    Section 339 requires the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
(FBI) to submit a comprehensive report on its efforts to 
transform its intelligence capabilities and to achieve long-
term goals for developing the national security functions of 
the Bureau. This report is intended to help establish clear 
goals for the development of the effective functioning of the 
Bureau as an intelligence agency.

Section 340. Report on intelligence resources dedicated to Iraq and 
        Afghanistan

    Section 340 requires the DNI and the Secretary of Defense 
to submit to the congressional intelligence and defense 
committees a report on the intelligence resources dedicated to 
Iraq and Afghanistan during the preceding two fiscal years and 
on the plan for fiscal year 2010. The Committee wants to ensure 
that such resources are sufficient to support policy 
determinations and tactical decisions related to U.S. forces 
deployed in these two theaters.

Section 341. Report on International Traffic in Arms Regulations

    The executive branch and industry have repeatedly 
identified the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) 
as an impediment to technology development. ITAR was intended 
to protect sensitive technologies and information from being 
transferred to nations deemed a potential security risk. 
Government and industry assert that the State Department has 
managed ITAR in such a way so as to encourage non-U.S. 
companies to develop a collaborative research and development 
environment that has allowed the indigenous production of 
banned technologies, which defeats the premise of ITAR and 
causes a significant loss of market share in key industries for 
U.S. corporations.
    This section requires the DNI to report to the 
congressional intelligence committees and to the congressional 
foreign affairs committees regarding the threat to national 
security posed by foreign government attempts to acquire 
sensitive technology and the effectiveness of ITAR in 
mitigating that threat.
    The Foreign Relations Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
2010, which passed the House in June 2009, would give the 
President authority to reform certain aspects of ITAR's 
management. The Committee expects that the report required by 
this section will help the President and Congress better 
evaluate the merits of such a decision.
    Commercial imagery providers have suggested that the U.S. 
Government has imposed on them significant legal restrictions. 
These providers are concerned that U.S. restrictions on the 
sale of commercial imagery are beginning to inhibit their 
growth and their competitiveness in foreign markets, especially 
as foreign imagery satellites improve and foreign reliance on 
U.S. systems diminishes. The Committee expects the report 
called for by this section to help Congress better understand 
the implications of these restrictions.

Section 342. Report on nuclear trafficking

    Section 342 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. The Committee remains concerned about the 
threat from the proliferation of nuclear and radiological 
materials and equipment, and this report is intended to deliver 
an assessment of that threat.

Section 343. Study on revoking pensions of persons who commit 
        unauthorized disclosures of classified information

    Section 343 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.

Section 344. Study on electronic waste destruction practices of the 
        Intelligence Community

    Section 344 requires the Inspector General of the 
Intelligence Community to conduct a study on the security and 
environmental impacts of the current electronic waste disposal 
practices of the Intelligence Community and provide the results 
to the congressional intelligence committees. The Committee is 
particularly concerned about the security implications of 
poorly-managed electronic waste disposal, but these disposal 
practices also raise questions about potential for adverse 
environmental effects.

Section 345. Report on retirement benefits for former employees of Air 
        America

    Section 345 requires the DNI to submit a report to Congress 
on the advisability of providing federal retirement benefits to 
United States citizens who were employees of Air America during 
a period when it was owned or controlled by the U. S. 
Government. This assessment must include a review of the costs 
associated with providing such a benefit and any 
recommendations for legislative action necessary to enact such 
a benefit.

Section 346. Study on college tuition programs for employees of the 
        Intelligence Community

    Section 346 requires the DNI to conduct a study on the 
feasibility of providing matching funds to college savings 
plans of personnel in the Intelligence Community and 
establishing a program to pay the college tuition for the 
children of an employee of the Intelligence Community who dies 
in the line of duty. The purpose of this study is to determine 
whether it would be practical to provide additional assistance 
to employees of the Intelligence Community who face college 
tuition payments.

Section 347. National Intelligence Estimate on global supply chain 
        vulnerabilities

    Section 347 requires the DNI to submit to Congress a 
National Intelligence Estimate or National Intelligence 
Assessment on the risks to U.S. national security resulting 
from the presence of counterfeit electronic components that may 
be defective or deliberately manipulated by foreign governments 
or criminal organizations. With the growing concerns over 
cybersecurity, the Committee believes it is appropriate to 
focus the Intelligence Community's attention on threats 
emanating from the global supply chain that provides much of 
the computer systems for both government and private industry.

Section 348. Review of records relating to potential health risks among 
        Desert Storm veterans

    Section 348 requires the Director of the Central 
Intelligence Agency (DCIA) to conduct a classification review 
of all CIA records relevant to known or potential health 
effects suffered by veterans of Operation Desert Storm. This 
section further requires the DCIA to report the results of the 
classification review to Congress.

Section 349. Review of pensions of employees affected by ``five and 
        out'' program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

    Section 349 states that none of the funds authorized by the 
bill may be used to implement an FBI program that requires the 
mandatory reassignment of a FBI supervisor after he or she 
serves in a management position for seven years. Funds may only 
be expended for this program after the Director of the FBI 
certifies to the congressional intelligence committees that the 
Director has completed a review of issues related to a previous 
program that required the mandatory reassignment of an FBI 
supervisor after he or she served five years in a management 
position.

Section 350. Summary of intelligence relating to terrorist recidivism 
        of detainees held at United States Naval Station, Guantanamo 
        Bay, Cuba

    Section 350 requires that the DNI, in consultation with the 
DCIA and the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, make 
publicly available an unclassified summary of intelligence 
relating to recidivism of detainees currently or formerly held 
at the U.S. Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and an 
assessment of the likelihood that such detainees will engage in 
terrorism or communicate with persons in terrorist 
organizations.

Section 351. Summary of intelligence on Uighur detainees held at United 
        States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

    Section 351 requires that the DNI, in consultation with the 
DCIA and the Director of the DIA, make publicly available an 
unclassified summary of intelligence relating to threats posed 
by Uighur detainees currently or formerly held at the U.S. 
Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and an assessment of the 
likelihood that those detainees will engage in terrorism or 
communicate with persons in terrorist organizations.

Section 352. Report on interrogation research and training

    Section 352 requires that the DNI, in coordination with the 
heads of the relevant elements of the Intelligence Community, 
submit to the congressional intelligence committees and the 
congressional appropriations committees a report on the state 
of research, analysis, and training in interrogation and 
debriefing process. The report must include: an assessment of 
the quality and value of scientific and technical research in 
interrogation and debriefing practices; the state of 
interrogation and debriefing training in the Intelligence 
Community; the adequacy of efforts to enhance career paths for 
employees who conduct interrogations and debriefings; and the 
effectiveness of processes for studying and implementing best 
practices for interrogation and debriefing.

Section 353. Report on plans to increase diversity within the 
        intelligence community

    Section 353 requires that the DNI, in coordination with the 
heads of the elements of the Intelligence Community, submit to 
the congressional intelligence committees a report on the plans 
of each element to increase diversity within the intelligence 
community. Those reports must include: specific plans to 
achieve the goals articulated in the DNI's strategic plan on 
equal opportunity and diversity; plans and initiatives to 
increase recruiting and hiring of diverse candidates; plans and 
initiatives to improve retention of diverse federal employees 
at the junior, midgrade, senior, and management levels; a 
description of specific diversity awareness training and 
education programs; and a description of performance metrics to 
measure the success of carrying out these plans.

Section 354. Review of Federal Bureau of Investigation exercise of 
        enforcement jurisdiction in foreign nations

    Section 354 requires that, no later than 60 days after 
enactment, the Director of the FBI conduct a review of 
constraints under international law and the laws of foreign 
nations to the assertion of enforcement jurisdiction with 
respect to criminal investigations of terrorism offenses under 
U.S. law.

Section 355. Repeal of certain reporting requirements

    Section 355 eliminates certain reporting requirements that 
were considered overly burdensome to the Intelligence Community 
in cases where the usefulness of the report has diminished, 
either because of changing events or because the information 
contained in those reports is duplicative of information 
already obtained through other avenues. The Committee is 
sensitive to the administrative burden placed on the 
Intelligence Community through reporting requirements, and 
seeks to eliminate, wherever possible, those reporting 
requirements that are no longer useful to aid congressional 
oversight.

Section 356. Incorporation of reporting requirements

    Section 356 incorporates into the Act by reference each 
requirement contained in the classified annex to submit a 
report to the congressional intelligence committees to clarify 
that the requirement to complete these reports is a requirement 
in law.

Section 357. Conforming amendments

    Section 357 makes conforming changes to the National 
Security Act of 1947 arising from changes and additions to the 
reporting requirements enumerated in Section 507 of that Act.

                       SUBTITLE E--OTHER MATTERS

Section 361. Modification of availability of funds for different 
        intelligence activities

    Section 361 conforms the text of Section 504(a)(3)(B) of 
the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 414(a)(3)(B)) with 
the text of Section 102A(d)(5)(A)(ii), as amended by Section 
1011(a) of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act 
of 2004, which governs the transfer and reprogramming of 
certain intelligence funding by the DNI. It replaces the 
``unforeseen requirements'' standard in Section 504(a)(3)(B) 
with a more flexible standard (from Section 102A(d)(5)(A)(ii)) 
to govern reprogramming and transfers of funds authorized for a 
different intelligence or intelligence-related activity.
    The new standard permits reprogramming or transfer 
authority if 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. This 
provision would make no changes to the relevant congressional 
reporting requirements or processes associated with the 
approval of reprogramming requests.

Section 362. Protection of certain national security information

    Section 362 amends Section 601 of the National Security Act 
of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 421) to increase the criminal penalties for 
individuals with authorized access to classified information 
who intentionally disclose information identifying a covert 
agent, if such individual knows the United States is taking 
affirmative measures to conceal the covert agent's intelligence 
relationship to the United States.
    Section 362 also amends 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 U.S. undercover intelligence officers, 
agents, informants, and sources also include an assessment of 
the need for any legislative modification for the purposes of 
improving legal protections for covert agents.

Section 363. 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. The employing agency is 
then required to file detailed reports about these gifts, 
including the source of each gift, with the Secretary of State, 
who must then publish a list of these reports in the Federal 
Register.
    The public disclosure of gifts or decorations to personnel 
and certain contractors of the Intelligence Community has the 
potential to compromise intelligence sources or confirm 
intelligence relationships with foreign governments. 
Recognizing the risks to national security, Congress has 
granted limited exemptions to this rule to the DCIA and to the 
DNI. Section 363 provides the heads of each element of the 
Intelligence Community the same limited exemption from the 
specified public reporting requirements previously provided 
only to the DNI and DCIA but requires that any information 
withheld from the Secretary of State be provided to and 
retained by the DNI.

Section 364. Exemption of dissemination of terrorist identity 
        information from the Freedom of Information Act

    Section 364 establishes procedures facilitating the 
transfer of information concerning the identity of known or 
suspected terrorists from the National Counterterrorism Center 
to the Terrorist Screening Center. This section is designed to 
encourage the dissemination of information vital to the 
prevention of terrorist attacks to state and local law 
enforcement by ensuring that the dissemination does not render 
information that would otherwise be exempt from disclosure 
under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) subject to 
such disclosure.

Section 365. Misuse of the Intelligence Community and Office of the 
        Director of National Intelligence name, initials, or seal

    Section 365 adds a subsection to the National Security Act 
of 1947 prohibiting the unauthorized use of the official name, 
initials, or seal of either the Office of the Director of 
National Intelligence or the Intelligence Community. This 
section also permits the Attorney General to pursue injunctive 
relief for such unauthorized use.

Section 366. Security Clearances: Reports; Ombudsman; Reciprocity

    The Committee welcomes the Intelligence Community's 
progress in improving the timeliness of security clearance 
processing but remains concerned that the processing of some 
security clearances, particularly for industry, takes too long. 
Section 366 requires a series of reports that will contribute 
needed data for ongoing congressional oversight of the security 
clearance process and effective measurement of progress.
    This section requires the President to conduct an audit 
every four years regarding the manner in which the executive 
branch determines whether a security clearance is required for 
a particular position in the federal government. This section 
also requires the President to submit to Congress an annual 
report regarding the number of employees and contractors with 
security clearances, the amount of time taken to process 
security clearance determinations, and the number of security 
clearance determinations that have taken longer than one year 
to complete. The section further requires that the President 
submit to Congress 180 days after enactment of this Act a 
report on establishing security clearance adjudication 
standards across the federal government.
    This section also directs the DNI to appoint an ombudsman 
for security clearances within the Intelligence Community. An 
ombudsman will provide persons experiencing delays in obtaining 
their security clearances with an avenue for seeking help 
resolving such delays.
    The Committee has conducted extensive oversight on the 
security clearance process, and in particular on the 
Administration's attempts to reform the process. In the course 
of that oversight, GAO has testified to the lack of meaningful 
quality metrics to evaluate the efficacy of the security 
clearance process. The legislative measures in this section are 
designed to address the concerns raised by GAO in its 
testimony.

Section 367. Limitation on use of funds for the transfer or release of 
        individuals detained at United States Naval Station, Guantanamo 
        Bay, Cuba

    Section 367 states that the DNI may not use any of the 
funds authorized by the bill to release or transfer an 
individual held at the U.S. Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, 
Cuba, to the United States, its territories, or possessions 
until 120 days after the President has submitted a plan to 
Congress. The plan must include: an assessment of the risk that 
each individual to be transferred or released poses to the 
national security of the United States; a proposal for the 
disposition of each such individual; a plan to mitigate any 
risks, should the proposed disposition include the release or 
transfer of that individual to the United States, its 
territories, or its possessions; and a summary of consultations 
by the President with the chief executive of the State, 
District of Columbia, territory, or possession to which an 
individual may be transferred or released.

Section 368. Intelligence community financial improvement and audit 
        readiness

    Section 368 expresses the sense of Congress regarding the 
need for each element of the Intelligence Community to develop 
and implement a plan to become compliant with financial 
management and audit readiness standards. This section also 
requires that the DNI conduct a review of the status of the 
auditability compliance of each element of the Intelligence 
Community and develop a plan and timeline to achieve a full, 
unqualified audit of each element by September 30, 2013.

  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)) provides that the ODNI may not be co-located 
with any element of the Intelligence Community. Section 401 
clarifies that the ban applies only to the co-location of the 
ODNI headquarters with the headquarters of another element of 
the Intelligence Community. It also provides the President with 
authority to waive that limitation where the interests of 
national security so dictate. Further, in response to an 
ambiguous requirement concerning the location of all federal 
government offices, this section clarifies that the ODNI 
offices may be located outside of the District of Columbia.

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

    Section 402 substitutes the DNI (or the DNI's designee) for 
the DCIA as a member of the Transportation Security Oversight 
Board, as established by Section 115(b)(1) of Title 49. 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 additional duties of the DNI's 
Director of Science and Technology. This provision ensures 
there is uniformity in the definitions of basic, applied, and 
advanced research goals and improved prioritization and 
coordination of science and technology across the Intelligence 
Community.

Section 404. Plan to implement recommendations of the data center 
        energy efficiency reports

    Section 404 requires the DNI to submit a plan to Congress 
on compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's report 
on data center energy efficiency submitted to Congress under 
Section 1 of P.L. 109-431. The plan is intended to encourage 
the Intelligence Community to promote the use of energy 
efficient technologies to reduce consumption of resources such 
as power and water by the Intelligence Community's data 
centers.

Section 405. Title of Chief Information Officer of the Intelligence 
        Community

    Section 405 clarifies that the Chief Information Officer 
(CIO) at ODNI serves as the Intelligence Community's CIO, and 
not only as the CIO for the ODNI.

Section 406. Inspector General of the Intelligence Community

    Section 1078 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism 
Prevent Act of 2004 authorized the DNI to establish an Office 
of the Inspector General if the DNI determined that such an 
Inspector General would be beneficial to improving the 
operations and effectiveness of the ODNI. The DNI created an 
Intelligence Community Inspector General (IC/IG) in DNI 
Instruction No. 2005-10 (September 7, 2005). However, the 
Committee believes that an IC/IG with full statutory 
authorities and independence can better ensure that the ODNI 
identifies problems and deficiencies within the Intelligence 
Community, especially with respect to the manner in which 
elements of the Intelligence Community share information and 
undertake joint or cooperative activities.
    Section 406 creates a statutory IC/IG to be appointed by 
the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate. The 
IC/IG will report directly to the DNI and may only be removed 
by the President, who must communicate the reasons for 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 such action is 
necessary to protect vital national security interests. The DNI 
must provide the congressional intelligence committees with the 
reasons for such a determination within seven days.
    The IC/IG will have subpoena authority, though 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.
    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 the 
DNI must submit such reports to Congress within 30 days of 
receipt. The IC/IG must also report immediately to the DNI 
serious or flagrant violations of law. Within seven days, the 
DNI must transmit those reports to the congressional 
intelligence committees.
    Employees of the Intelligence Community or employees of a 
contractor who intend to report to Congress a violation of law 
or Executive Order, a false statement to or willful withholding 
from Congress, or other ``urgent concerns'' may report such 
complaints and supporting information to the IC/IG. The IC/IG 
must transmit this complaint, along with a credibility 
determination, to the DNI, which must then transmit the 
complaint, credibility determination, and supporting 
documentation to the congressional intelligence committees. 
This section 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), the Senate Committee report for 
that legislation, S. Rept. 105-185, and the conference report, 
H. Rept. 105-780.
    For matters within the jurisdiction of both the IC/IG and 
an Inspector General for another element of the Intelligence 
Community, the Inspectors General (IGs) shall resolve who will 
undertake an investigation, inspection, or audit. In resolving 
that question, the IGs may request the assistance of the 
Intelligence Community Inspectors General Forum, an already 
extant body codified in this section. In the event that the IGs 
are still unable to resolve the question, they shall submit the 
matter for resolution to the DNI and to the head of the element 
in which an Inspector General with jurisdiction is located.
    The Committee notes that the current DNI has expressed his 
support for a statutory IG in testimony. In addition, the 
previous Inspector General at the Office of the Director of 
National Intelligence (ODNI/IG) has testified to the challenges 
that the ODNI/IG faces in the absence of an authorizing statute 
and to the benefits that the creation of a statutory IC/IG 
would bring to the oversight of the Intelligence Community.

                SUBTITLE B--CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

Section 411. 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 for executive branch obligations to 
keep the congressional intelligence committees fully informed 
of 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 411 of this bill augments 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 codifies in statute existing practice and assures 
its regularity.
    The DNI has expressed concern that this audit requirement, 
and several other provisions pertaining to reports by the 
Intelligence Community, 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 411 
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)), 
which empower the DCIA 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 reports the reasons to the congressional intelligence 
committees.

Section 412. Prohibition on the use of private contractors for 
        interrogations involving persons in the custody of the Central 
        Intelligence Agency

    Section 412 prohibits the DCIA from obligating or expending 
funds 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 DCIA 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. This section 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. The Committee believes that conducting custodial 
interrogations is an inherently governmental function, which 
should, to the maximum extent practicable, be conducted by U.S. 
Government personnel.

Section 413. Appeals from decisions of Central Intelligence Agency 
        contracting officers

    Section 413 amends current law by providing that an appeal 
from a decision of a CIA contracting officer may be made to 
whichever of the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals or 
the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals is specified by the 
contracting officer as the appropriate Board. This section also 
provides that the board so specified shall have jurisdiction to 
decide the appeal.

Section 414. Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency

    Section 414 establishes the position of Deputy Director of 
the Central Intelligence Agency (DDCIA) and specifies that the 
President shall appoint the DDCIA. This section further 
outlines that the duties of the DDCIA are to assist the DCIA in 
carrying out his or her duties and to act as DCIA during the 
absence of the DCIA or a vacancy in the position.

Section 415. Protection against reprisals

    Section 415 expands the protections to CIA personnel who 
provide assistance to the CIA/IG. Section 17(e)(3)(B) of the 
Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949 (50 U.S.C. 
403q(e)(3)(b)) authorizes the CIA/IG to receive and investigate 
both complaints and information. Currently, Section 17(e)(3)(B) 
only extends protections to employees against reprisal or 
threat of reprisal made in response to complaints filed with 
the CIA/IG. This provision would clarify that these protections 
also apply with respect to information provided to the CIA/IG 
employees that may not be in direct connection with a 
complaint.

Section 416. Requirement for video recording of interrogations of 
        persons in the custody of the Central Intelligence Agency

    Section 416 adds to the National Security Act of 1947 a 
requirement for the DCIA to establish guidelines to ensure that 
interrogations of detainees in CIA custody are recorded in 
video form, and that the video recording and attendant audio 
recording of such interrogation is maintained for a specified 
period of time. This provision does not apply a videotaping 
requirement to security officers who might question a witness 
or a suspect in the course of their official duties while 
assigned to CIA headquarters.

                       SUBTITLE C--OTHER ELEMENTS

Section 421. Homeland Security intelligence elements

    Section 421 affirms that both the Coast Guard and Office of 
Intelligence and Analysis in the Department of Homeland 
Security are elements of the Intelligence Community. This 
section further clarifies that the Office of Intelligence and 
Analysis is the Department of Homeland Security's Intelligence 
Community member in accordance with existing practice and as 
defined in Executive Order 12333. The Coast Guard is listed 
herein as a military, multi-mission, maritime service that is 
located within the Department of Homeland Security.

Section 422. Clarification of inclusion of Drug Enforcement 
        Administration as an element of the Intelligence Community

    Section 422 codifies the joint decision of the DNI and the 
Attorney General that the Drug Enforcement Administration 
should be within the Intelligence Community.

Section 423. Repeal of certain authorities relating to the Office of 
        the National Counterintelligence Executive

    Section 423 amends the authorities and structures of the 
National Counterintelligence Executive (NCIX) to eliminate 
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 424. Confirmation of appointment of heads of certain components 
        of the Intelligence Community

    Section 424 establishes that the directors of the National 
Security Agency (NSA) and National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) 
are to be presidentially-appointed and Senate-confirmed. Under 
present law and practice, the directors of the NSA and NRO, 
each with a distinct and significant role in the national 
intelligence mission, are not confirmed by the Senate in 
relation to their leadership of these agencies. Presently, the 
President appoints the Director of NSA and the Secretary of 
Defense appoints the Director of the NRO. Under current law, 
neither of these appointments must be confirmed by the Senate 
unless a military officer is promoted or transferred into the 
position.
    The Committee believes that holding confirmation hearings 
in both the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the 
Senate Armed Services Committee would bring to these positions 
an appropriate level of accountability and responsiveness to 
congressional oversight.

Section 425. Associate Director of the National Security Agency for 
        Compliance and Training

    Section 425 establishes an Associate Director for 
Compliance and Training at the NSA. This official will report 
to the NSA Director and will be responsible for ensuring that 
all NSA surveillance programs are in compliance with applicable 
laws, regulations, and policies.
    The Committee understands the challenges involved in 
bringing together surveillance laws with the complicated and 
ever-changing technology that the NSA uses to collect vital 
intelligence. To date, the NSA has distributed the 
responsibility for compliance and training across several 
offices within the organization, with none occupying a 
sufficiently prominent position to influence outcomes 
effectively.
    The Committee believes that the establishment of an 
additional Associate Director whose sole responsibility is to 
ensure that each component within NSA is adhering to the rules 
governing surveillance authorities is the best way to minimize 
the risk of non-compliance.
    The Associate Director for Compliance and Training should 
have expertise in both the legal and technical arenas of 
surveillance so that he or she can be accountable for each and 
every surveillance program the NSA administers.
    The Associate Director for Compliance and Training will 
also be responsible for establishing and implementing a 
training regimen to ensure that the NSA workforce understands 
the procedures necessary to comply with the law.

Section 426. General Counsel of the National Security Agency

    Section 426 requires presidential appointment and Senate 
confirmation for the General Counsel of the NSA. The General 
Counsel of the NSA faces important legal, privacy, and civil 
liberties issues that are only increasing in complexity. The 
Committee believes that holding confirmation hearings in both 
the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate 
Armed Services Committee for the NSA's General Counsel is a 
warranted additional measure of congressional oversight.

Section 427. Inspector General of the National Security Agency

    Section 427 amends Section 12 of the Inspector General Act 
of 1978 (5 U.S.C. App.) to establish an Inspector General of 
the NSA. As noted, complex legal, privacy, and civil liberties 
issues may arise during the performance of the NSA's mission. 
The Committee believes that the Inspector General will play a 
vital role in ensuring that the NSA effectively executes its 
mission in a manner consistent with all applicable laws and 
regulations.

Section 428. Charter for the National Reconnaissance Office

    Section 428 requires that the DNI and Secretary of Defense 
jointly submit to the congressional intelligence committees and 
congressional defense committees a revised charter for the 
National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). The NRO charter has not 
changed since the agency's founding nearly forty years ago, and 
the Committee believes an updated charter would help the NRO

               Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate



                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                     Washington, DC, June 25, 2009.
Hon. Silvestre Reyes,
 Chairman, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 2701, the 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Jason 
Wheelock.
            Sincerely,
                                      Douglas W. Elmendorf,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 2701--Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010

    Summary: H.R. 2701 would authorize appropriations for 
fiscal year 2010 for intelligence activities of the U.S. 
government, for the Intelligence Community Management Account, 
and for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and 
Disability System (CIARDS).
    Since CBO does not provide estimates for classified 
programs, this estimate addresses only the unclassified 
portions of the bill. In addition, CBO cannot provide estimates 
of provisions that affect both classified and unclassified 
programs. On that limited basis, CBO estimates that 
implementing certain provisions of the bill would cost $236 
million in 2010 and $669 million over the 2010-2014 period. 
Enacting H.R. 2701 would not affect direct spending or 
revenues.
    H.R. 2701 includes new subpoena authority that would impose 
an intergovernmental and private-sector mandate as defined in 
the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA), but CBO expects the 
cost of complying with the mandate would be small and well 
below the thresholds established in UMRA ($69 million for 
intergovernmental mandates and $139 million for private-sector 
mandates in 2009, adjusted annually for inflation).
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary impact of H.R. 2701 is shown in the following table. 
The costs of this legislation fall within budget function 050 
(national defense).

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

    Basis of estimate: For this estimate, CBO assumes that H.R. 
2701 will be enacted near the beginning of fiscal year 2010, 
that the specified amounts will be appropriated, and that 
outlays will follow historical spending patterns for existing 
or similar programs.

Intelligence Community Management Account

    Section 104 would authorize the appropriation of $673 
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 coordinating programs, overseeing budgets, and managing the 
intelligence agencies. CBO estimates that implementing this 
provision would cost $667 million over the 2010-2014 period, 
assuming appropriation of the specified amount.

Training in African languages

    Section 314 would authorize the Director of National 
Intelligence, after consultation with the National Security 
Education Board, to establish a pilot program to provide 
scholarships for training in certain African languages not 
currently covered by existing scholarship programs. The bill 
would authorize the appropriation of $2 million for that 
purpose, and CBO estimates that those amounts would result in 
outlays of $1 million in both fiscal years 2010 and 2011, 
assuming the appropriation of the specified amount.

Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System

    Section 201 would authorize the appropriation of $291 
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 
in the CBO baseline. Thus, this estimate does not ascribe any 
additional cost to that provision.
    Intergovernmental and private-sector impact: H.R. 2701 
contains an intergovernmental and private-sector mandate as 
defined in UMRA. 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 commission 
would likely issue subpoenas sparingly and that the costs to 
comply with a subpoena would not be significant. Thus, we 
estimate that the total costs of the mandate would be small and 
well below the annual thresholds established in UMRA ($69 
million for intergovernmental mandates and $139 million for 
private-sector mandates in 2009, adjusted annually for 
inflation).
    The bill also would create a grant program to promote the 
recruitment and retention of an ethnically and culturally 
diverse workforce within the intelligence community, which 
would benefit public colleges and universities. Any costs they 
may incur, including matching funds, would result from 
complying with conditions of aid.
    Estimate prepared by: Federal costs: Jason Wheelock; Impact 
on state, local, and tribal governments: Burke Doherty; Impact 
on the private sector: Elizabeth Bass.
    Estimate approved by: Theresa Gullo, Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.

[SEC. 319. IMPROVEMENT OF EQUALITY OF EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN THE 
                    INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.

  [(a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          [(1) It is the recommendation of the Joint Inquiry of 
        the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the 
        House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence into 
        Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the 
        Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, that the 
        Intelligence Community should enhance recruitment of a 
        more ethnically and culturally diverse workforce and 
        devise a strategy to capitalize upon the unique 
        cultural and linguistic capabilities of first 
        generation Americans.
          [(2) The Intelligence Community could greatly benefit 
        from an increased number of employees who are 
        proficient in foreign languages and knowledgeable of 
        world cultures, especially in foreign languages that 
        are critical to the national security interests of the 
        United States. Particular emphasis should be given to 
        the recruitment of United States citizens whose 
        linguistic capabilities are acutely required for the 
        improvement of the overall intelligence collection and 
        analysis effort of the United States Government.
          [(3) The Intelligence Community has a significantly 
        lower percentage of women and minorities than the total 
        workforce of the Federal government and the total 
        civilian labor force.
          [(4) Women and minorities continue to be under-
        represented in senior grade levels, and in core mission 
        areas, of the intelligence community.
  [(b) Pilot Project To Promote Equality of Employment 
Opportunities for Women and Minorities Throughout the 
Intelligence Community Using Innovative Methodologies.--The 
Director of National Intelligence shall carry out a pilot 
project under this section to test and evaluate alternative, 
innovative methods to promote equality of employment 
opportunities in the intelligence community for women, 
minorities, and individuals with diverse ethnic and cultural 
backgrounds, skills, language proficiency, and expertise.
  [(c) Methods.--In carrying out the pilot project, the 
Director shall employ methods to increase diversity of officers 
and employees in the intelligence community.
  [(d) Duration of Project.--The Director shall carry out the 
project under this section for a 3-year period.
  [(e) Report.--Not later than 2 years after the date the 
Director implements the pilot project under this section, the 
Director shall submit to Congress a report on the project. The 
report shall include--
          [(1) an assessment of the effectiveness of the 
        project; and
          [(2) recommendations on the continuation of the 
        project, as well recommendations as for improving the 
        effectiveness of the project in meeting the goals of 
        promoting equality of employment opportunities in the 
        intelligence community for women, minorities, and 
        individuals with diverse ethnic and cultural 
        backgrounds, skills, language proficiency, and 
        expertise.
  [(f) Diversity Plan.--(1) Not later than February 15, 2004, 
the Director of Central Intelligence shall submit to Congress a 
report which describes the plan of the Director, entitled the 
``DCI Diversity Strategic Plan'', and any subsequent revision 
to that plan, to increase diversity of officers and employees 
in the intelligence community, including the short- and long-
term goals of the plan. The report shall also provide a 
detailed description of the progress that has been made by each 
element of the intelligence community in implementing the plan.
  [(2) In implementing the plan, the Director of National 
Intelligence shall incorporate innovative methods for 
recruitment and hiring that the Director has determined to be 
effective from the pilot project carried out under this 
section.
  [(g) Intelligence Community Defined.--In this section, the 
term ``intelligence community'' has the meaning given that term 
in section 3(4) of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 
401(4)).]

                             Minority Views

     H.R. 2701--Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010

    We are disappointed that this year's intelligence 
authorization bill has taken a significant step back from last 
year's bipartisan legislation. It puts aside consensus in last 
year's bill and in this year's classified Schedule of 
Authorizations with respect to many significant issues. 
Instead, it advances provisions that appear to be designed for 
partisan messaging rather than to address critical national 
security issues, and it would reopen and modify areas of 
bipartisan consensus reached with respect to several discrete 
issues in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act. 
In its current form, the bill also contains provisions that we 
believe would inappropriately hamper the flexibility and 
responsiveness of the intelligence community and includes 
discrete items that we believe are flawed or have not been 
fully vetted. In many respects, the bill is not fully 
transparent with respect to its purpose and effect or in making 
information available to the public that could be released on 
important issues.
    While we believe that the bill has been strengthened by 
successful bipartisan work on the classified schedule of 
authorizations and by Republican amendments adopted by the 
Committee, on balance we have significant reservations with the 
bill in its current form that force us to oppose it. We hope 
that these issues can be addressed going forward in the 
legislative process in order to complete bipartisan legislation 
to authorize the critical activities of the intelligence 
community.

     THE BILL FAILS TO ADDRESS CRITICAL NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUES, 
            CONCENTRATING INSTEAD ON CREATING PARTISAN COVER

    The transition to a new Administration has caused several 
longstanding national security issues to be revisited, from the 
President's decision to release legal memoranda concerning 
sensitive compartmented activities of the Central Intelligence 
Agency and to close the detention facility at Guantanamo, to 
decisions to relocate detainees and potentially to bring them 
into the United States, to the apparent initiation of policies 
intended to convert the global war on terrorism into a matter 
of prosecution and litigation. While we recognize that changes 
in policy are inevitable in a new Administration and that 
President Obama has also wisely continued many past policies, 
we are deeply concerned that many decisions with significant 
implications for the intelligence community have been and 
continue to be implemented with absolutely no consultation with 
Congress, contrary to the established practice of the previous 
Administration.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\We have expressed concern in the past at the failure of the 
previous Administration to fully brief the Committee with respect to 
certain discrete matters, but the record is clear that the Committee 
was consulted regularly with respect to certain major initiatives. By 
contrast, the current Administration has conducted little to no 
consultation at all. In fact, the President's task forces with respect 
to some of the most relevant issues still have not briefed the 
Committee even on their processes and have twice cancelled Committee 
briefings, despite having held repeated meetings with outside advocacy 
groups. This is plainly unacceptable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    H.R. 2701 fails entirely to address many of these critical 
issues, abdicating the responsibility of the Committee. In 
other areas, it appears more focused on creating partisan cover 
for certain inconvenient truths faced by the Majority than in 
honestly confronting them. These inconvenient truths include 
the bipartisan consensus that has existed with respect to 
critical national security programs, even though they may no 
longer be seen as ``politically correct'' as threats become 
perceived as less imminent. We continue to believe that these 
issues must be addressed on their substantive merits, with the 
paramount goal of empowering the intelligence community to 
protect the American people consistent with our values. It is 
unfortunate that this bill fails to do so.
National Security Act Amendments
    Last year, we wrote that ``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.'' It is precisely for this reason that we 
joined with Chairman Reyes at that time in supporting truly 
bipartisan language to reform provisions of the National 
Security Act governing reporting of intelligence activities to 
the Committee. Inexplicably, that provision was removed from 
this year's bill and replaced with a partisan provision with 
serious flaws. The need for the change was so poorly understood 
that Chairman Reyes centered his opposition to a Republican 
amendment to restore the bipartisan language on provisions that 
had been in his own bill last year, and Majority counsel had to 
correct the record at markup to clarify that they had not 
properly described or apparently even understood their own 
proposal. The core provisions of the National Security Act are 
no place for such hasty, partisan lawmaking.
    This fiasco seems to have arisen because the Majority 
believed it needed political cover for its claims that it had 
not been briefed with respect to several intelligence community 
programs on which the record incontrovertibly shows not only 
that multiple members were briefed repeatedly on the programs 
in question on a bipartisan basis, but that they raised no 
objections, and took no action to object or to defend the 
programs as career intelligence officers acted in reliance on 
such approvals. Thus was born the canard that the ``problem'' 
somehow was not the failure of members to seek further 
information or raise whatever concerns they may have had, but 
instead was the fault of the career briefers, or the process 
itself. The Majority promptly issued a press release to promise 
that it would fix such problems--with no mention of the 
bipartisan provisions from the previous year.\2\ Those 
provisions were developed to address the real and repeatedly 
demonstrated problem of briefings that had been too narrowly 
limited to certain members rather than the new, politically 
convenient, false issues relating to the conduct of the 
briefings themselves.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \2\``Reyes Statement on Congressional Notification Reform,'' May 
14, 2009. (http://intelligence.house.gov/Media/PDFS/
ReyesRelease051109.pdf)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Section 502 of last year's bill makes amendments to certain 
congressional notification procedures of the National Security 
Act of 1947. It was the product of bipartisan discussion and 
agreement between Chairman Reyes and Ranking Member Hoekstra 
and includes language suggested by both. The provision 
expressly provided that information briefed to the Committee 
reporting on activities other than covert actions shall be made 
available to each 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 would be limited. The provision specifically 
addressed and balanced the Constitutional powers and 
responsibilities of both the Executive and Legislative 
Branches, and set forth a specific mechanism to reconcile them.
    By contrast, the partisan provision in Section 321 of this 
year's bill would do nothing to solve the problem. In fact, it 
is so poorly drafted that it would lead to nothing but 
confusion. It nowhere creates a statutory presumption that all 
Members of the Committee should be briefed. Instead, it would 
require the Committee to unilaterally develop procedures for 
the handling of reporting on sensitive matters, even though the 
President has significant constitutional authorities in the 
area of national security that Courts have repeatedly said must 
be considered with and balanced against the authorities of 
Congress. The provision nowhere provides a mechanism for 
ensuring that decisions within the Committee are made on a 
bipartisan basis or for reconciling any dispute between the 
branches with respect to such reporting, which is a recipe for 
Constitutional gridlock that could be disastrous with respect 
to such sensitive matters.
    Moreover, the partisan provision purports to regulate 
objections that Members might wish to raise to a sensitive 
activity, including a statutory 48 hour time limit. The 
Majority staff indicated its belief at markup that this 
provision only requires an objection to be memorialized and 
transmitted to the Executive Branch within 48 hours, but the 
overall structure of the provision is not explicit. It is 
possible that such a provision could be read to restrict the 
time period in which members could raise objections. While we 
agree that formalizing and memorializing the process of 
objection to sensitive activities may be warranted, this sloppy 
provision nowhere states the legal scope or effect of such an 
objection and could require hasty decisionmaking on potentially 
critical matters. Moreover, if circumstances change or 
additional information is gathered after initial reporting of a 
covert action, the provision might be read to bar subsequent 
objection by Congress.
    Congressman Mac Thornberry offered an amendment at markup 
to replace this sloppy provision with last year's bipartisan 
language--further extended to include reporting of covert 
actions--even though we believe parts of that compromise are 
excessively prescriptive and focus disproportionately on legal 
issues rather than intelligence policy issues. The amendment to 
remove the partisan provision was defeated virtually on a party 
line vote, with only Congressman Rush Holt now supporting the 
original compromise on the Majority side. The core of the 
National Security Act is far too important for such 
gamesmanship, and this provision must be addressed and repaired 
as the legislation advances.
Release of unclassified versions of briefing memoranda and finished 
        intelligence products assessing information gained from 
        detainee reporting
    On a related issue, Ranking Member Hoekstra offered an 
amendment that would allow the American people to reach their 
own well-informed conclusions with respect to briefings to 
Congress on the use of Enhanced Interrogation Techniques. This 
issue gave rise to the broader controversy over briefings to 
the Committee after President Obama unilaterally and 
selectively released legal memoranda dealing with previously 
highly compartmented intelligence activities that lead to 
public calls for individuals to be held accountable for the 
activities, despite clear bipartisan consensus and support for 
the programs in question in repeated briefings to Members of 
the Committee. Ranking Member Hoekstra and Republican Members 
and staff of the Committee have had the opportunity to review 
the memoranda memorializing such briefings and believe that two 
facts are readily apparent. First, the memoranda clearly 
indicate that members of the Committee supported the activities 
in question on a bipartisan basis and raised no objections to 
the activities in question. Second, while certain redactions 
might still be justified to protect identities of intelligence 
community personnel, detainees, or details of sources and 
methods, there is little reason why the core of the documents 
could not be declassified and publicly released to allow the 
American people to decide for themselves.
    Similarly, Ranking Member Hoekstra's amendment would have 
provided for the release of unclassified versions of finished 
intelligence products assessing the information gained from 
detainee reporting after the September 1 1 attacks. 
Unfortunately, however, despite the President's unilateral 
decision to release the legal memoranda and publicly confirm 
substantial elements of these sensitive intelligence 
activities, the Majority voted in favor of partisan cover and 
would not support the release of these documents that would 
allow the full picture to be known and understood. It is ironic 
that many members of the Committee who have so vehemently 
argued in favor of greater transparency by the intelligence 
community and against perceived selective ``cherry-picking'' of 
publicly disclosed intelligence opposed this amendment, again 
for apparent partisan purposes. The record on this matter 
cannot he fully or fairly evaluated by the public until a 
version of these documents is made public.
``Global Justice'' Initiative
    The bill also has not addressed critical aspects of the so-
called ``Global Justice'' initiative being considered by the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation, which we believe could 
significantly hamper intelligence collection and potentially 
prevention of terrorist acts by making it a priority to handle 
these matters abroad as law enforcement matters. While we 
appreciate the commitments from Chairman Reyes and Subcommittee 
Chairman Thompson to further review the matter, we believe that 
the Committee should have immediately made a clear and 
unambiguous statement against the implementation of any such 
policy.
    The Committee has devoted substantial energy and attention 
since the September 11, 2001 attacks to ensure that prevention 
of attacks and intelligence collection take priority in foreign 
countries over the inherent disadvantages of the criminal 
justice model. The FBI and Department of Justice should not 
unilaterally seek to undo these important, carefully 
coordinated efforts. The 9/11 Commission noted that ``The 
concern about the FBI is that it has long favored its criminal 
justice mission over its national security mission.'' 
Unfortunately, efforts to develop the ``Global Justice'' 
initiative suggest that this message has not yet been fully 
heeded.
    The initiative represents a fundamental policy shift in the 
fight against radical jihadists. As part of this new 
initiative, FBI agents would be deployed in the middle of 
intelligence collection activities worldwide, potentially 
including the battlefield, to gather evidence. FBI agents would 
also take first priority in questioning persons of interest 
rather than trained intelligence interrogators. Thus, FBI 
agents might read Miranda warnings to non-U.S. persons held 
overseas who are not entitled to such rights outside the 
context of a criminal prosecution inside the United States--a 
significant disincentive for any subject to provide information 
that might be urgently needed to prevent an attack. And if 
those detainees didn't immediately ``lawyer up,'' FBI agents 
would ask questions to build a litigation case- not to produce 
intelligence.
    Given the gravity of this potential policy shift, we are 
pleased that the Committee recognized the importance of some 
implications of the Global Justice Initiative, but we do not 
believe sufficient steps have been taken to address our 
fundamental concerns about this new and dangerous program. On a 
positive note, the Committee adopted two amendments offered by 
Congressman Mike Rogers. The first amendment prohibits the use 
of intelligence funds to read Miranda warnings to non-U.S. 
person detainees held by the U.S. military overseas. As 
previously mentioned, we believe strongly that such warnings 
could impair the immediate collection of critical intelligence 
and could serve as a significant disincentive to cooperation. 
It is important to emphasize that U.S. courts have repeatedly 
held that foreign persons in foreign countries generally do not 
enjoy constitutional protections, rendering the Miranda 
warnings unnecessary absent an immediate, specific intent to 
initiate criminal prosecution.
    The second amendment related to the ``Global Justice'' 
initiative requires the FBI Director to review the legal 
problems caused by FBI agents trying to conduct investigations 
(using intelligence funding) of non U.S. persons outside of the 
United States and to report his findings to the congressional 
intelligence committees. As recognized by the authoritative 
Restatement (Third) of the Foreign Relations Law of the United 
States, international law clearly provides as a matter of 
sovereignty that U.S. law enforcement officers may only 
exercise their functions in other countries with the specific 
consent of duly authorized officials of those countries. 
Without such authorization, those countries could protest and 
seek reparation from the United States.
    This initiative must be reviewed carefully as the 
legislation moves forward.
National Drug Intelligence Center
    Congressman Mike Rogers offered an amendment that would 
have authorized funding to close the National Drug Intelligence 
Center (NDIC), which is located in central Pennsylvania and has 
long-been a controversial and questionable effort inside the 
intelligence community. U.S. News and World Report once 
famously describe the center as, a ``Drug War boondoggle rocked 
by scandal'' and quoted its first deputy director as stating 
that the center was, ``in search of a mission.'' In light of 
its reputation and dubious usefulness, the previous 
administration repeatedly recommended the facility be budgeted 
for closure and its minimal efforts shifted to the more 
productive and better situated El Paso Intelligence Center. The 
Majority refused to take responsibility for this boondoggle, 
and voted against the amendment.
    NDIC has only remained open the past several years as a 
result of receiving the largest single, pork barrel expenditure 
in the intelligence budget. In the Fiscal Year 2007 
Intelligence Authorization Act, the Majority improperly 
included the earmark in the bill with no transparency, contrary 
to the applicable rules. Oversight visits and briefings with 
the Committee have repeatedly borne out that the center is 
duplicative, poorly located, lacking in mission, with no clear 
direction for the future, and its funding could be directed to 
higher intelligence community priorities.
    In light of bipartisan, Republican-led, action in the 
Intelligence Committee in recent years to end the earmark and 
close NDIC, its political patrons apparently had enough and 
have attempted to shift its authorization to the House 
Judiciary Committee after years hidden away in intelligence 
funding. The resulting attempt to hide oversight for an 
``intelligence center'' in the Judiciary Committee is a direct 
affront to this Committee's proper authorities and 
responsibilities in the House. It is an unprecedented effort to 
shift and diminish the power of this Committee for purely 
political reasons and the Majority should not have allowed this 
bald-faced political move to stand. This amendment would have 
placed NDIC back under the proper oversight of the House 
Intelligence Committee and directs, as this Committee has 
previously, that funds be appropriated to cease the center's 
operations.
    Since its inception, more than $400 million in taxpayer 
dollars has been spent with little to show in the way of 
results. A report by the House Committee on Government Reform 
and Oversight concluded that NDIC should be terminated because 
it is ``an expensive and duplicative use of scarce Federal drug 
enforcement resources,'' and the Office of Management and 
Budget previously concluded that ``NDIC has experienced 
problems with duplication of effort and lack of coordination 
with other intelligence providers and consumers. Focusing 
resources on a smaller number of intelligence providers would 
increase the impact of those resources.''
    At a time when the American people are stretching to more 
with less and the federal budget deficit is soaring out of 
control, this Committee has an obligation to ensure taxpayer 
money for national security is being used in the wisest and 
best manner possible to ensure our nation's safety. Committee 
Members have a fiduciary responsibility to stand up for the 
Committee's authorities. The Majority, however, voted to accept 
this attempt to shift and hide NDIC funding and continue to 
shirk responsibility for Member pet projects.
Detainees
    This bill fails entirely to address the critical issue of 
the disposition of the detainees currently held at Guantanamo 
Bay in the wake of the President's unilateral decision to close 
the facility, before reviewing the relevant facts and options 
and with no plan. We believe that the security of the American 
people must come first. The Majority blocked an amendment, 
offered by Congressman Roy Blunt, which would have prohibited 
the use of intelligence funds to foreign countries in exchange 
for accepting newly relocated Guantanamo detainees. This issue 
must be handled transparently--secret intelligence funds should 
not be used as a slush fund to pay foreign countries to relieve 
the United States of its responsibilities.
    Despite its willingness to secretly pay foreign nations 
potentially significant amounts of taxpayer dollars to take 
detainees, the Majority apparently believes that these 
detainees are still dangerous, voting against an amendment 
offered by Congressman Mike Rogers to clarify the record on the 
issue by preventing the Administration from paying foreign 
countries to conduct surveillance on or monitor newly released 
detainees. The Majority apparently agrees that these newly 
released detainees need to be monitored, but does not believe 
they pose a sufficient threat to prevent them from being 
released in the first place.
    The Majority also rejected an amendment, offered by 
Congresswoman Sue Myrick, which would have prevented 
intelligence dollars from being spent to bring Guantanamo 
detainees into the United States, despite clear bipartisan 
opposition in the House and among the American people to 
bringing dangerous terrorists into the United States. Instead, 
the Majority adopted a watered-down substitute that withholds 
money until the President submits a ``plan'' for these 
Guantanamo detainees.
    Hastily drafted despite delays in the Committee's markup, 
the substitute amendment requires the ``plan'' to be submitted 
to the Congressional defense committees rather than this 
Committee, despite later Majority criticism of a Republican 
amendment on the ground that such a provision would cause a 
sequential referral. In addition, the watered down substitute 
would have limited effect, restricting funding only to the 
Director of National Intelligence and not to individual 
agencies in the intelligence community. The Majority is 
apparently comfortable allowing the Administration to put down 
whatever it likes on paper, call it a ``plan'' for dealing with 
detainees, and spend money to send these terrorists virtually 
anywhere from Palau to Peoria. We are not satisfied by half 
measures. The President and the Majority must more meaningfully 
address the ``problem'' of Guantanamo Bay--caused by the 
premature decision to close the facility--head on.
    The Committee agreed to two amendments offered by Ranking 
Member Hoekstra to require the intelligence community to 
produce an unclassified summary of the threat posed by the 
Uighurs at Guantanamo and an unclassified summary on the 
recidivism of Guantanamo detainees repatriated or released to 
third countries over the years, although we are disappointed 
that only a few members of the Majority supported these 
amendments. These amendments will provide greater transparency 
and clarity to the public debate over these detainees. The 
American people deserve to know exactly what kind of people are 
being held at Guantanamo and exactly what kind of threats we 
will all face if these detainees are released, brought to this 
country for trial, or ultimately inserted into the federal 
prison system.

Failure to protect intelligence community personnel

    This bill also contains a provision that we believe will 
unnecessarily expose intelligence personnel to risk. Section 
416 of this bill requires the Central Intelligence Agency to 
videotape interrogations of detainees. This requirement could 
quickly become a substantial liability for our CIA officers in 
the field if the President allows them to interrogate suspected 
terrorists again. These tapes could pose a logistical and 
security nightmare, and it is clear that the implications of 
such a requirement have not been fully vetted.\3\ Officers at 
remote locations would have to figure out a way to securely 
store the tapes. If these tapes were ever lost or stolen, they 
would create tremendous risks. Videotaped interrogations could 
reveal the identity of our CIA officers--making them and their 
families a target for retaliation. Tapes could also betray 
detainees who might choose to cooperate and mark them for 
death. Of course, images from even a lawful, properly conducted 
interrogation might provide material for our adversaries to 
exploit for propaganda purposes.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \3\The Committee's investigation with respect to the destruction of 
previous tapes has suggested potentially significant issues with 
respect to the destruction of previously created interrogation 
videotapes. We wish to note the distinction between the need to 
preserve existing or future videotapes once created and the policy 
question of whether such tapes should be created in the future.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Congressman Mac Thornberry offered an amendment to strip 
section 416 out of this bill and protect our CIA officers going 
forward. Unfortunately, the amendment was defeated in a split 
partisan vote. This provision must be more carefully addressed 
going forward.
    More broadly, we are concerned at the increasing 
politicization of career intelligence community personnel 
merely for carrying out policies that were authorized by the 
President and approved and funded by the Congress.
    On May 4, 2009, Philip Mudd, a veteran intelligence officer 
who has worked for the CIA and the FBI, was nominated to be 
Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis for the 
Department of Homeland Security. However, on June 5, 2009, Mudd 
withdrew his nomination because of worries that attacks by 
Senate Democrats over his work on anti-terror programs would be 
a ``distraction'' to the Obama administration. Last November, 
former CIA officer John Brennan withdrew from consideration to 
be appointed the CIA Director for the same reason.
    We are concerned that highly qualified intelligence 
officers are becoming pawns in a political game which has 
caused the careers of some extremely talented intelligence 
officers, like Mudd and Brennan, to hit a brick wall. These 
officers are being punished not for wrongdoing but for their 
success in administering innovative anti-terrorist programs 
that kept our nation safe from terrorist attack over the last 
seven years.
    It is time to stop this assault on our intelligence 
community. This is not just wrong, it's dangerous. There are 
many dire threats facing our nation from radical jihadists, WMD 
proliferation, the global economic situation, and many regional 
issues. America needs an intelligence corps that is prepared to 
take manageable risks without fear of being undercut by 
changing political moods. Using intelligence officers as pawns 
in political games will dissuade our best and brightest 
intelligence officers from serving in controversial and high-
risk environments.

            THE BILL CONTAINS SIGNIFICANT SUBSTANTIVE FLAWS

    The base bill hastily drafted by the Majority contains 
several operative provisions that significantly concern us, and 
equally as many that are poorly researched, of questionable 
need or have unknown implications. Many of the new provisions 
reflect the fact that this bill was thrown together in a few 
days time and is largely cobbled from ODNI proposals that have 
not been thoroughly considered, and reversals on old issues 
that were resolved on a bipartisan basis during negotiations on 
the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA).

Management issues

    The base bill was improved by two Republican initiatives on 
key management issues. One Republican amendment, offered by 
Congressman John Kline, requires the National Reconnaissance 
Office (NRO) to submit an updated charter to Congress within 90 
days of enactment of the bill. The NRO's existing charter was 
adopted in 1965 and has not been updated in the forty plus 
years since that time and no longer reflects the 
organizational, functional and operational realities of today's 
NRO. For example, from a practical perspective, neither the 
ODNI nor the current DOD acquisition guidelines existed when 
the current charter was written. This amendment would require 
the NRO and DOD to finalize and submit a new charter, which we 
understand has been in the drafting process for quite some 
time. The amendment was intended to ensure that the NRO's 
current organizational structure and reporting chains are 
reflected in the charter, as well as the modern day functional 
duties of NRO.
    Another Republican amendment offered by Congressman Mike 
Conaway contained a sense of Congress that reaching 
auditability for all intelligence community elements should be 
a priority for the DNI. This is intended to put the IC on 
notice that it is critically necessary to reach and maintain a 
level of auditability for all elements of the community and to 
make certain that the DNI takes a leadership role in ensuring 
this happens. The amendment also requires the DNI to complete a 
review to determine specifically where the office is in this 
process, and to come up with a measurable time frame for 
reaching a point where the entire IC can be audited. It is 
essential that the DNI maintains strong financial management 
and business systems that allow for comprehensive auditing, in 
order to improve financial management government-wide. The 
American taxpayers should be assured that we hold government 
agencies to the same high standards as we do publicly traded 
companies. These two Republican amendments significantly 
improve the bill from management and accountability standpoint.

Inspector General of the Intelligence Community

    We have significant concerns with Section 406 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 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. For example, the bill would make various changes 
that would subject the National Security Agency to the 
jurisdiction of not one, but three statutory inspectors 
general. (Department of Defense, Inspector General of the 
Intelligence Community, and National Security Agency). 
Moreover, the Committee's experience has been that increasing 
size of the bureaucracy has in some cases delayed work on 
important investigations. This provision can only make the 
problem worse and further hamper the timeliness of review by 
the Committee.

General Accounting Office

    Section 335 of the bill would require the DNI to provide 
access for GAO employees to all information that the 
Comptroller General of the GAO deems necessary to conduct an 
investigation that is requested by one of the intelligence 
committees. It is unclear why the Majority believes this broad 
expansion is even necessary. The elements of the intelligence 
community all currently have Inspectors General that are able 
to perform the investigative and auditory functions sought 
here, while limiting the number of persons that have access to 
sensitive intelligence information. Moreover, this Committee is 
charged with oversight of IC programs, and we find it 
surprising that the Majority is willing to outsource that 
oversight responsibility. That the Majority is incapable or 
unwilling to perform the Committee's oversight function is not 
a sufficient reason to break from a longstanding, carefully 
structured oversight process designed to balance congressional 
oversight needs with the Executive's need to protect sensitive 
information. This provision dangerously subordinates the DNI's 
responsibility to protect the Nation's most sensitive national 
security information to an entity responsible for performing 
audits at Congress' behest.
    The provision also lacks any restriction governing the 
handling of classified information by the GAO--which is not 
subject to the detailed Rules of the House or the Committee on 
such matters--and the use and distribution of GAO products. As 
drafted, the GAO will have access to the most sensitive 
national security information, and there is no restriction on 
how they may use that information, who may be designated to 
receive it and how it may be distributed--especially after the 
information is incorporated into a GAO product or report. Under 
the House Rules, this Committee has jurisdiction over sources 
and methods, and nothing in this provision would prevent the 
GAO from distributing sensitive sources and methods material 
beyond this Committee. Aside from the institutional interests 
that the Majority should be more concerned with protecting, the 
potential for sensitive information to be inadvertently or 
intentionally disclosed greatly and dangerously increases with 
this provision included in the bill.

Less flexibility and more bureaucracy for the intelligence community

    The bill also contains several provisions that will hamper 
the flexibility of community personnel. It will require for the 
first time Senate confirmation of the National Security Agency 
Director, NSA General Counsel, and the Director of the National 
Reconnaissance Office. These positions have traditionally not 
required Senate confirmation and have been filled by career 
intelligence professionals. Despite the 9/11 Commission's 
recommendation that we minimize as much as possible the 
disruption of national security policymaking by accelerating 
the process for national security appointments, the Majority 
seeks to instead add more politics and more delay into the 
process by requiring additional key intelligence positions to 
be subject to lengthy, politicized Senate confirmation process. 
It is unclear how subjecting career intelligence employees to 
these processes or replacing them in favor of partisan 
political appointments will enhance our ability to respond to 
catastrophic terrorist attacks like 9/11.
    The bill also adds another layer of bureaucracy to NSA by 
creating a new Associate Director position that will duplicate 
oversight responsibilities already charged to the General 
Counsel. If there are concerns with the way NSA's Office of the 
General Counsel has handled matters in the past, creating 
another layer in the bureaucracy at an additional cost to the 
taxpayers is not the best way to address those concerns.
    Further hampering the IC is the Majority's unexplained 
decision to mandate personnel practices in the Defense 
Department that are opposed by the current Administration. 
Section 304 of the bill terminates DOD's use of the Defense 
Civilian Intelligence Personnel System or ``pay for 
performance'' as the system is more familiarly known. The 
rationale for this provision is not transparent. DOD is 
implementing DCIPS to bring DOD intelligence personnel in line 
with the rest of the IC. While we are aware of some concerns 
with respect to compensation reform at the CIA, we believe that 
the concept has generally worked at DOD. The Administration has 
already responded to the Majority's concerns about pay for 
performance earlier this month after delaying implementation 
and conducting a review following a request from the Chairman. 
Suspension of DCIPS will leave Intelligence employees working 
side by side under different systems and different terms of 
employment.

Burdensome reports and Congressionally Directed Actions

    We are once again troubled by the proliferation of reports 
that are required of the intelligence community. At least 41 
new reports and Congressionally Directed Actions are mandated 
in the bill and classified annex, while only five statutorily 
required reports are removed.
    In order for the House and Senate intelligence committees 
to do their job on behalf of Congress and the American people, 
the Committees must have access to the necessary information. 
Requiring that an agency produce a periodic report on certain 
activities is sometimes the most efficient way to obtain that 
information. But at other times, a briefing or a simple letter 
can serve just as well. Too often, requiring a new report is 
used as a substitute for reading, studying, and learning from 
what has already been provided. Many times, such a requirement 
is used to convey interest in a topic or as a fall-back 
position to a thwarted legislative provision.
    The burden of researching, writing, approving, and 
transmitting this volume of reports to Congress, strains the 
resources of the intelligence community. If the congressional 
Committees were to carefully read and study each one, it would 
also strain the Committee's resources. Unfortunately, these 
reports frequently become a paper shuffling exercise for both 
branches, rather than a serious, substantive exchange of 
information needed for proper oversight and decisions.
    We believe that the Committee should be much more judicious 
in the reports it requires and that it should demand high 
quality responses to those requests. The growing demand for 
little read or used mounds of paper does not benefit either 
branch.

Modifications to provisions of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism 
        Prevention Act

    Several provisions of the bill change elements of the 
Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA) 
enacted after exhaustive bipartisan discussion and 
consideration. With no apparent rationale, the Majority has 
also loosened the agreed upon threshold that is required for 
the IC to request a reprogramming of funds that were directed 
by Congress to be used in specific ways. Currently, the IC may 
request a reprogramming of funds when there is need based on 
``unforeseen requirements.'' Under the standard just adopted by 
the Majority, the IC may request reprogramming based on an 
emergent need, improved program effectiveness or an increase in 
efficiency. In effect, this significant change would allow 
reprogrammings whenever the Executive Branch seeks to do so 
with only the thinnest of justifications. It is unclear why the 
Majority would water down our institutional interests by giving 
up control and oversight of IC spending.
    Several provisions are also inconsistent with the 
bipartisan IRTPA agreement that became law not quite five years 
ago, and the reason for the changes are not transparent. The 
DNI requested that Agencies be mandated to allow non-
reimbursable detailees to serve at ODNI for an extended period, 
and the Majority did so without an appropriate review of 
whether it was truly needed, or what the repercussions may be. 
Similarly, the bill makes changes to the duties of the program 
manager for the Information Sharing Environment whose 
responsibilities were set forth in IRTPA. Without explanation, 
the Majority decided to open up issues long ago resolved where 
there is no demonstrated need to do so. Like many of the IRTPA 
provisions, these provisions were the subject of detailed 
Committee consideration and in-depth discussions in 2004 and 
ill-considered changes at the behest of the ODNI whose 
authorities were so carefully balanced in that bill without 
full consideration for the implications is ill-advised.

Additional substantive concerns

    The bill also contains additional provisions that do not 
appear to have been well-thought through or vetted, some 
submitted by the Administration two days before the legislative 
package was drafted and incorporated verbatim in the bill. 
While these provisions may appear technical on the surface, 
they could have significant substantive implications and do not 
appear to have been studied or justified. It is simply not 
possible to thoroughly study and contemplate the intent and 
implications of these provisions in just a couple of days. 
Rather than spending the time to consider these provisions, the 
Majority added them to this bill.
    Notably, several education and scholarship programs are 
made permanent without any specific demonstration of their 
effectiveness and impact from the IC. While these programs may 
have merit, it does not make sense to permanently authorize 
certain pilot programs merely because the IC asks for them. The 
Committee has not received any information indicating how these 
programs have worked and why they should be made permanent. To 
blindly enact these programs does a disservice to the 
Committee's important oversight role.
    Section 302 of the bill also permits the DNI to temporarily 
appoint certain personnel from other IC agencies to fill 
vacancies of presidentially appointed or Senate confirmed 
positions. This is another provision that the Committee 
received from the Administration days before it was included in 
the bill. ODNI indicated it recently had trouble filling a 
specialized Senate confirmed position on a temporary basis 
necessitating this provision. Instead of considering whether 
the ODNI's issue may be addressed in other ways, the Majority 
accepted most of the Administration's language on this 
provision and the implications of greatly expanding the DNI's 
authority to fill critical positions previously subject to 
confirmation remain unknown.
    Section 413 allows CIA contractors to appeal disputes to 
the Armed Services contracting appeals board. The provision 
also appeared in the bill just days after the Administration 
requested the provision be included in this year's 
authorization bill. The provision would amend current law to 
permit a CIA contracting officer to appeal a contracting 
decision to the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals or the 
Civilian Board of Contract Appeals. Until recently, the law 
provided for appeal to both boards and was only recently 
amended to permit appeal to the Civilian Board only. We are 
unaware of any consideration given to the ramifications of 
expanding this jurisdiction or even if the reasoning behind why 
the law was recently amended has been reviewed.
    The bill contains provisions requested by the DNI that 
would protect from misuse of the DNI seal. We have no 
information from the DNI that misuse of the seal is a 
significant problem they have encountered. This provision was 
also added to the bill without any consideration of its 
necessity. Frankly, we find it surprising that a provision like 
this would receive any attention in a time where the IC is 
facing much more pressing and serious issues that the Committee 
needs to address, particularly when the Community has not had 
an authorization bill in several years.
    Section 502 of the bill extends the National Commission for 
the Review of the Research and Development Programs of the 
intelligence community. Again, the Committee has not been 
provided with a rationale for reauthorizing this Commission and 
the Majority has not articulated any reason to reauthorize a 
Commission whose previous authorization expired before the 
Committee ever met.
    Section 503 of the bill requires the DNI to conduct a 
classification review of materials in the possession of the 
intelligence communities that are at least twenty-five years 
old and were provided to the Committee by the Executive Branch. 
This provision appeared in the draft bill in the days before 
Committee consideration without explanation and fails to 
recognize that the Executive Branch already conducts 
classification reviews of such material pursuant to its 
original classification authorities. We believe that our 
intelligence professionals could better spend their time on a 
variety of matters that do not involve doing duplicative 
classification reviews. Our recommendation on a better method 
for minimizing the mounds of paper that are put into the 
Committee's storage would be to stop propounding dozens of new 
reporting requirements to the IC each time we pass an 
authorization bill.

Conclusion

    In conclusion, we are disappointed that substantial 
bipartisan agreement on this year's classified Schedule of 
Authorizations and in the legislative provisions of last year's 
bill have been put aside, apparently to turn this critical 
national security bill into a partisan messaging tool and a 
vehicle in many cases for questionable provisions to advance 
partisan policy initiatives or rubber stamp the requests of the 
Administration, ignoring other critical substantive issues. We 
hope that these concerns can be addressed as the bill moves 
forward in the legislative process, but must urge our 
colleagues to oppose it in its current form.

                            Additional Views

    During committee consideration of the bill H.R. 2701, I 
indicated that I had additional questions on portions of the 
classified annex and was not yet prepared to vote to approve 
the Schedule of Authorizations. As a result, I requested that I 
be recorded as voting present on the question of whether to 
report the bill favorably to the House.
    I have subsequently received answers to my questions. Had I 
known those answers at the time of the mark-up, I would have 
voted to report the bill favorably.
