NYT.  Wow.  The White House is looking at a director of national intelligence…  The reason this is a hot issue:  intelligence is at the heart of the war on terrorism.  It stands on its head the old formula for addressing threats which was 10% intelligence and 90% operations.  Operational dominance pervades all aspects of the current government security structure.  Fixing that, and it needs to be done, will take much more than random tweaks to the system.  Of course, with Iraq in the foreground it may be impossible to make this shift.
