Hedley, John Hollister. Checklist for the Future of Intelligence. Occasional Paper. Washington, DC: Institute for the Study of Diplomacy, Georgetown University, 1995.
Hedley is CIA officer in residence at Georgetown University. This represents the summation of a series of meetings at Georgetown, entitled "American Intelligence for the Twenty First Century: A Colloquium on the Future of Intelligence After the Cold War," from the fall of 1994 to February 1995. The checklist calls for giving more authority to the DCI, reducing redundancy in military intelligence, and giving a sharper focus to intelligence collection and analysis.

"Allegations of intelligence failure are inevitable.... This is true in large part because, in intelligence, failures are inevitable..... Intelligence organizations do learn (as well as suffer) from the allegations and the failures.... Even though it is impossible to learn once and for all how to prevent the reoccurrence of something inevitable, the ratio of success to failure probably can be improved." [Clark comment: Thus speaks a voice of reason.]

The PRB began life in 1976 in the Office of the DCI as part of the Public Affairs office. It was moved in 1993 to the Directorate of Administration's Office of Information Technology. In 1997, it was redesignated the Publications Review Division in the directorate's Office of Information Management. The latter entity also includes the CIA component handling FOIA matters and the Historical Review Group (since early 1998).
