The Pentagon is set to create [yet another new intelligence / defense / espionage organization] to focus on global strategic threats and the challenges posed by countries including Iran, North Korea, and China. The move will bring to 17 the total number of intelligence organizations in the US.

The Defense Clandestine Service is supposed to work closely with its counterpart in the CIA, the National Clandestine Service, recruiting spies from the ranks of the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and deploying them globally on perceived long-term threats to US national interests.

Hayden’s Note:

Just what we need.  As if the DHS, ICE, HSI, FBI, ATF, DEA, CIA, DIA, NSA, TSA, NCS, TFI, INR, NRO, ONI, NSI, DOD, and the CBP weren’t enough, now we get another “defense intelligence” organization.

Welcome to 1984.
