Overview

Domestic intelligence in the United States today is undermanned, uncoordinated, technologically challenged, and dominated by an agency the FBI that is structurally unsuited to play the central role in national security intelligence. In Remaking Domestic Intelligence, Richard A. Posner reveals the dangerous weaknesses undermining our domestic intelligence in the United States and offers a new solution. He explains ·    Why domestic intelligence, despite its importance to national security, is the weakest link in the U.S. intelligence system
·    Why the FBI, because its primary activity is law enforcement, is not the solution to the problem of domestic intelligence
·    The many drawbacks to the "agency within an agency" approach as opposed to creating a separate domestic intelligence agency
·    The advantages of a U.S. domestic intelligence agency modeled on the concept and basic design of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and lodged in the Department of Homeland Security
·    How a new U.S. domestic intelligence agency might offer additional advantages over our current structure even in terms of civil liberties
