William Odom talked about his book Fixing Intelligence: For a More Secure America, published by Yale University Press. In the book, the author suggests ways in which the American intelligence agencies, specifically responsible for national security, can be restructured. The book stems from a critique the author wrote in the late 1990s about the congressional committee that oversees these American intelligence groups. Mr. Odom argues that it is futile to fix specific and individual problems as they arise because ultimately, these same problems will continue to surface. He writes that the entire bureaucracy needs to be streamlined and that cooperation among the agencies is a key element in determining the success of American intelligence. close
