Coats moves to curb ‘unnecessary secrecy’

Top secret

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats is seeking to open the flow of information among the nation’s secret agents, says a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

A new guidance titled Intelligence Community Portfolio Management outlines the use of “portfolios” to facilitate information-sharing and collaboration while maintaining security.

A commentary at the Federation of American Scientists noted that “portfolios” are commonly used in the intelligence community to counteract “excessive compartmentalization.”

“Undue secrecy in intelligence is not only a barrier to external oversight and public accountability. It can also be an obstacle to effective mission performance. That is fortunate in a way since it provides a reason for officials to reconsider classification policy and an incentive for them to curtail unnecessary secrecy,” the commentary explained.

It said Coats’ announcement appears “intended in part as a way to curb internal IC secrecy.”

Please go to Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, or the rest of this report, including whether the newest move will impact the public’s access to government secrets.
