Breitbart: U.S. Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Richard Grenell is streamlining the “bloated bureaucracy” that is the intelligence community in a bid to make it more efficient in tackling the threats confronting America, a former CIA station chief told Breitbart News on Saturday.
The intelligence community has rallied behind efforts to make the Office of National Intelligence (ODNI) more effective, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) station chief Daniel Hoffman noted.
Grenell is reportedly overhauling the ODNI, which is in charge of the U.S. intelligence community.
During the latest edition of the Breitbart News Saturday Sirius XM satellite radio show hosted by Matt Boyle, Hoffman praised the staffing changes by the nation’s top intelligence officer, Grenell, who was appointed by President Donald Trump.
“I’m pretty strongly in favor of what the administration is doing in this case,” he said.
Hoffman pointed out that outside the “bloated” ODNI and its National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC) component, the intelligence community does not have enough intelligence officers to do the job of protecting America. read more
