John gannon testimony

John Gannon Testimony

“The views expressed are my own. They are shaped by my professional experience…

  • working with the FBI during a 24-year career at CIA,

  • during a brief stint as the team leader for intelligence in the Transition

    Planning Office for the Department of Homeland Security (2002-2003),

  • during a two-year tour as the first Staff Director of the House Homeland

    Security Committee (2003 to 2005).

  • building and managing analytic programs in the Intelligence

    Community, where I served as CIA's Deputy Director for Intelligence, as

    Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, and as Assistant Director

    for Analysis and Production.”

John Gannon Testimony

“The salient fact is that, approaching five years after 9/11, we still do not have a domestic intelligence service that can collect effectively against the terrorist threat to the homeland or provide authoritative analysis of that threat.”

“We now have abundant data to assess DHS's and the IC's performance since 9/11. …The IC story is disappointing but still with hope under the DNI. For DHS, it is largely a chronicle of a few victories made hard to achieve and many failures that should have been avoided.”

Fact: 50% of the analytic workforce of the U.S. Government has less than 5 years of experience.


Gannon what do we need to do

Gannon: “What do we need to do?”

Of seven recommendations made by Gannon, an information systems requirement emerges:

“Recommendation 7--Promote Government-wide

Information Sharing”

Conclusion

“The US Intelligence Community today is much more than technical collection agencies in league with an espionage service. It is one of the world's largest information companies…. .. [need to] exploit the glut of open-source information; to access the best sources of expertise… ..Fuse classified and unclassified information… .. On domestic intelligence, we are challenged to build a national collaborative network--including Federal, state, and local governments, and the private sector--that can bring together in real time the best information, the foremost experts, and well trained first responders to meet any threat to the homeland. This is the goal.”


Opportunities in open sources

Opportunities in Open Sources

“The Internet is now the default C4I architecture for virtually the entire

world. The principle exceptions are most militaries and intelligence

organizations. The Internet facilitates commerce, provides entertainment and supports ever increasing amounts of human interaction. To exclude the information flow carried by the Internet is to exclude the greatest emerging data source available. While the Internet is a source of much knowledge, all information gleaned from it must be assessed for its source, bias and reliability.”
