In the wake of the reforms recommended by the 9/11 Commission, policymakers are debating how to best restructure U.S. intelligence agencies and procedures in order to avoid the kinds of failures that took place before the September 11 attacks and the war in Iraq.

At this Brookings briefing, a panel of experts will examine the current state of U.S. intelligence gathering and assess the challenges that remain, including how to meld domestic and foreign counter-terrorism efforts and how to foster intelligence sharing in ways that protect both security and civil liberties. Panelists will evaluate the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, the administration’s new executive orders, and various pending legislative proposals.

Panelists will take questions from the audience following their remarks.
