This thesis examines the divide between Title 10 and Title 50 from a congressional oversight perspective. Beginning by explaining the origins of modern intelligence committee oversight and the legal framework supporting it the author sets up two case study relationships. The first case study explores the complex relationship between the militarys Special Operations Command and the Central Intelligence Agency. The second surveys the developing relationship between the National Security Agency and Cyber Command. After breaking down these interactions in detail the final chapter considers changes in the contemporary strategic environment and identifies challenges threats today, and our responses to them, pose to oversight. Finally the author recommends changes to oversight to ensure that operations that straddle the Title 1050 divide are reviewed, authorized, and executed appropriately.
