Abstract:

Despite intense and prolonged public scrutiny of US intelligence agencies in the 1970s and ensuing restrictive reforms, debate has continued about the controls governing intelligence operations. Even the most knowledgeable intelligence professionals disagree sharply on the questions of what US intelligence agencies should and should not be directed to do. The issue is an emotional one, and when it was resurrected early in the Reagan Administration, contending perspectives were once again energized both inside and outside of government.
