Abstract:

Intelink is the U.S. Governments classified version of the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, like the World Wide Web, Intelinks information is often difficult or impossible to easily locate, and indeed a large portion of Intelink data is inaccessible to the average user because of security-related, organizational, or technical reasons. Because Intelink plays such a pivotal role in providing intelligence support to the operational commander, any information management problems or inefficiencies in Intelink will create potentially large-scale perturbations in the intelligence process, ultimately affecting how well the operational-level commander and his subordinate units will be able to carry out their mission. The newly created Office of the Director of National Intelligence must assume responsibility for Intelink and conduct the organizational and technical changes that must occur for Intelink to truly leverage the power of the entire Intelligence Community.
