U.S. has been trying to coordinate intelligence since 1955

• McClatchy News
The U.S. intelligence community's information-sharing problems are nothing new, and there have been repeated attempts to correct them since 1955, when a congressional blue-ribbon panel recommended that the CIA director take charge of all U.S. intelligence efforts.

That went nowhere, in part because of resistance from the Defense Department, which controls the bulk of the nation's intelligence budget as well as eight of the nation's 16 intelligence agencies, including the National Security Agency, which is responsible for eavesdropping on phone calls, e-mails and other communications.

 US "intelligence" seems to be doing fine on its domestic spying program as well as harassing citizens at airports.  Perhaps, they should take their queues from those very successful programs.
