Rep. McCurdy, chairman of the House Select Intelligence committee, discussed the reorganization of the U.S. intelligence community under the Intelligence Authorization Act before a meeting of the Business Executives for National Security. He said the change in the strategy of the intelligence community following the end of the Cold War required new means of detecting the principle threats to American interests, which Rep. McCurdy defined as the potential instability in the Soviet Union and the development of “weapons states.” He recommended improving and refining the intelligence community in terms of flexibility and responsiveness because the requirements of the community, rather than declining following the Persian Gulf war, will actually increase as tensions continue between smaller states. close
