A World Transformed

By: Department of National Security

On the morning of August 2, Barbara and I were still in bed with the papers when Brent arrived just before 5:00. Visibly exhausted, he Hied me in on the emerging details of the invasion and the discussions he'd had the night before.

By: Department of National Security

We also believe that the DNI will have to work closely with the President and the National Security Council to reconsider how intelligence should best be presented to the President, because we are dubious that the PDB?in its current incarnation?is the right answer.
