I. Charles McCullough III, Intelligence Community Inspector General

"Slow and disjointed" is how Senator Dianne Feinstein, former chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, described the federal document declassification process. But a routine inspector general report found no violations within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Such reviews are required under a law called ROCA, the Reducing Over-Classification Act. The review only recommended "refinement." Charles McCullough is the Intelligence Community's Inspector General. He joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin to discuss the report and how some of the other intelligence agencies stacked up next to DNI.

Michael Leiter, Executive Vice President for Strategy and Business Development, Leidos

It may be unpopular, but bulk data collection by the National Security Agency is effective. Technology can't replicate what bulk data collection can do for intelligence. But more effective methods could be developed so that the collection and use of data is more targeted and controlled. Those are among the findings from a major study of signal intelligence practices. The study was just completed by the National Academies. It was requested by the President and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence a year ago. Michael Leiter is an executive vice president at Leidos and a member of the committee that authored the report. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the findings.
