Intelligence Reform and The Iran National Intelligence Estimate with Thomas Fingar.

 

The debate over how to deal with Iran received a jolt late last year when the U.S. government’s intelligence report concluded that Iran ended its nuclear weapons program four years ago. Don’t miss this chance to hear from the intelligence expert who is the principal author of the report that "rewrote the book" on Iran – The Commonwealth Club of California

 

Office of the Director of National Intelligence Receives Accolades from Harvard University’s Ash Institute

Cambridge, Mass., – September 9, 2008 – The Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School today announced the Intelligence Community Civilian Joint Duty Program as a winner of the 2008 Innovations in American Government Awards. This program of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence promotes cross collaboration and knowledge transfer across the entire intelligence community. As one of six 2008 Innovations winners recognized at tonight’s awards gala in Washington, D.C., the program will receive $100,000 toward dissemination and replication across the country.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence designed the Intelligence Community Civilian Joint Duty Program in 2007 to address the unique threats faced by American intelligence as detailed in the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act and the 9-11 Commission. The program instills a new model of collaboration by requiring personnel to serve a period of duty outside of their parent agency as a prerequisite for senior level promotion. As a result, Joint Duty personnel gain a deeper and broader knowledge of the inner-workings of American intelligence, and in the process, build the collaborative, inter-agency information-sharing networks so vital to today’s post-9/11 intelligence mission. Through the efforts of Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell, as well as the strong backing of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, all 16 agencies, including those within the six cabinet departments that make up the intelligence community, participate in the program.

Previously, the intelligence community’s agencies and departments operated almost independently, with very little interagency collaboration and information sharing – an insularity deeply rooted in the Cold War and identified by the 9-11 Commission as one of the primary reasons the intelligence community failed to “connect the dots” leading up to the September 11th tragedy.

Under the guidelines of the Joint Duty program, all Intelligence Community employees are evaluated under the same performance standards, no matter which of the 16 agencies they may serve. Such standards include how well they collaborate, share information, and take integrated action across agency boundaries. Executives receive annual feedback from superiors, staff, and peers, through comprehensive 360-degree reviews standardized across all agencies. While formal outcomes are classified, the program is already receiving much anecdotal acclaim.

"Joint Duty ensures that leaders of the Intelligence Community acquire a deep understanding of how each element of the IC contributes to the overall mission," said Director Mike McConnell. "It’s like the quintessential CEO who has spent time working in the mail room, advertising, distribution, sales, and accounting. A leader who understands and sees the big picture is eminently better prepared to handle the challenges of a complex global threat. The Joint Duty Program is one of the many fruits of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004."

“Knowledge-sharing between our federal intelligence agencies is key to improved national security,” said Stephen Goldsmith, director of the Innovations in American Government Awards at Harvard Kennedy School. “The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has developed an innovative solution for improving cross-agency understanding, while at once creating a more rewarding professional experience for intelligence community personnel.”

Since 1986, the Ash Institute’s Innovations in American Government Awards Program at Harvard Kennedy School has honored 187 federal, state, and local government agencies through Ford Foundation support. In highlighting exemplary models of government innovation, the Program drives continued progress in improving the quality of life of citizens and encourages scholarly research and teaching cases at Harvard University and institutions worldwide. Many award-winning programs have been replicated across jurisdictions and policy areas, and have served as harbingers of today’s reform strategies or as forerunners to state and federal legislation.

Aphorisms: Personal Perspectives

London

Mar 14th, 2008

 

The World in a Phrase: Philosophy and the Aphorism featuring panelists James Geary, A.C. Grayling, and John Lloyd.

 

The aphorism – a world of thought compacted into a single phrase – is the oldest written form of literature on the planet. The aphorism is also the oldest form of philosophical writing, dating back to the earliest moral and cosmological musings of the ancient Egyptians and Chinese.  Yet there remains no manner of thinking better suited to contemporary times – and this one-day symposium will explore why.

 

Poets, professors, artists, philosophers, psychologists and comedians (and aphorists!) from Europe and the U.S. will gather to discuss and celebrate the aphorism as a privileged vehicle for grappling with the deepest questions facing our world – and will show how the aphorism is just the ticket if you are tired of ideologies but haven’t given up on truth – Institute of Philosophy

 

 

 

Antisemitism’s Emergence, Development, and Continuation

Antisemitism is a central problem in Western civilization. Its emergence in the late nineteenth century and horrific consequences in the Holocaust cast doubt on the very foundations of the modern Western world and values.

 

Using Steven Beller’s new book on anti-Semitism, we look at the main theoretical debates of the daunting and often ironic complexities of the subject.

 

Was prejudice only part of a complicated historical context  that enabled the discrimination, persecution, and extermination of Jews in the Holocaust?

 

We examine developments since 1945: anti-Semitism’s diminution in the Holocaust’s aftermath, the emergence of new forms of anti-Semitism, and the question of whether "anti-Zionism" is the "new anti-Semitism" – The New School

Is Islam Compatible With Democracy?

In Islam, Allah is the ultimate authority. In democracy, authority ultimately lies with the people. But does this mean that Islam is incompatible with democracy?

 

After all, it was Islamic scholarship that introduced ancient Greek conceptions of democracy to the feudal states of Europe.

 

Despite this, it has been suggested that the differences between Islam (especially when given political form) and the liberal democracies of the West are so great as to represent a ‘clash of civilisations’.

 

But is this so? Is an approach in which society is ordered according the will of God compatible with one in which the will of the people reigns supreme? – Intelligence Squared Australia

Douglas Feith: Inside the Pentagon

Hudson Institute

Washington, D.C.

Apr 28th, 2008

 

Douglas Feith’s remarkable War and Decision: Inside the Pentagon at the Dawn of the War on Terrorism is the first book written by a former Bush Administration insider to offer a dispassionate and documented account of the reaction to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 that led to the overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s regime.

 

War and Decision, as the Wall Street Journal has noted, is the first "revisionist history" of the Iraq war.  It challenges the conventional wisdom that holds the belief that in a rush to war a cadre of neoconservatives politicized intelligence findings.

 

Henry Kissinger says of the book, "The fullest and most thoughtful statement of the Pentagon thinking prior to and in the first stages of the Iraq war. Even those, as I, who take issue with some of its conclusions will gain a better perspective from reading this book."

 

To explore Feith’s account, Hudson Institute held a discussion with three former officials who were active participants in the decisions of the day: Paul Wolfowitz, Visiting Scholar with AEI, former President of the World Bank, and former Deputy Secretary of Defense; Peter Rodman, Senior Fellow with the Brookings Institution and former Assistant Secretary for Defense and Adviser to the National Security Council; Dan Senor, former Senior Advisor to Presidential Envoy L. Paul Bremer III, Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority. This discussion was moderated by Hudson Institute CEO, Kenneth Weinstein – Hudson Institute

Jonah Goldberg on Liberal Fascism

 

http://fora.tv/2008/01/30/Jonah_Goldberg_on_Liberal_Fascism

 

Hudson Institute

Washington, D.C.

Jan 30th, 2008

 

Author Jonah Goldberg discusses Liberal Fascism. Panelists include Michael Ledeen, Resident Scholar with the American Enterprise Institute; Fred Siegel, Professor of History at Cooper Union; and Ronald Radosh, Adjunct Fellow with Hudson Institute. The discussion is moderated by Yuval Levin, Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

 

In his controversial new book, Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning (Doubleday) Jonah Goldberg offers a startling new perspective on the theories and practices that define fascist politics. Reaching beyond familiar myths, he reminds us that the original fascists were men of the left, and that liberals from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to Hillary Clinton have advocated some policies and principles remarkably similar to those of European fascism, including an aversion to the free market, and the promise of free health care and a generous pension system. Do these striking parallels mean that today’s liberals are genocidal maniacs, intent on conquering the world and imposing a new racial order? Of course not. Yet it is hard to deny, Goldberg argues, that modern progressivism and classical fascism share the same intellectual roots.

 

Of the book former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says: "Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism will enrage many people on the left, but his dire thesis deserves serious attention…. Goldberg will lead you to new understanding and force you to think deeply." Following Goldberg’s remarks, a panel of experts will present their commentary on the book – Hudson Institute
