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.

Randolph Alles, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Air and Marine

Eight years after unmanned aircraft became a part of border security, the effectiveness of the program remains a question mark.

Investigators found aircraft don't meet flight goals, and CBP has way undercalculated flight costs. The agency, however, disputes those findings. For the management side of the story, Randolph "Tex" Alles, assistant commissioner of the Office of Air and Marine at CBP, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive. His first bone to pick concerned how long the drones are supposed to be in the air.
