Summary "Domestic intelligence in the United States today is undermanned, uncoordinated, technologically challenged, and dominated by an agency-the FBI-that is structurally unsuited to play the central role in national security intelligence. Despite the importance of domestic intelligence to national security, it is the weakest link in the U.S. intelligence system. In Remaking Domestic Intelligence, Richard A. Posner explains the dangerous weaknesses undermining our domestic intelligence and offers a solution: the creation of a domestic intelligence agency that would be separate from the FBI and have no law enforcement authority or responsibility."--Provided by publisher.
