1. "Getting Smarter About Intelligence." Washington Post National Weekly Edition, 20-26 Jun. 1994, 32-33.

Pincus reports that, in the wake of the Ames furor, sentiment is building in Congress and at the White House for a broad study of the roles and missions of the major components of the U.S. intelligence community. As part of the transition from Bush to Clinton, a panel created by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace recommended that a presidential study be undertaken. Sen. John Warner has also called on the president to set up a task force to study the community. In this connection, Pincus provides this view of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board: "The PFIAB, which was formalized as an advisory and oversight panel by President John F. Kennedy after the disaster at the Bay of Pigs, has had an up-and-down history. It frequently has been used as a prestige appointment for presidential friends."

2. "Taking Intelligence into the 21st Century." Washington Post National Weekly Edition, 27 Feb.-5 Mar. 1995, 32.

HPSCI chairman Larry Combest "is determined that his committee play a major role in reshaping U.S. intelligence for the 21st century."

3. "Untangling the Spy Network's Webs: Rep. Combest Wants CIA Clandestine Operations Separate and NRO Split." Washington Post, 5 Mar. 1996, A13.

"One difference between the DO of today and the proposed clandestine service is that a new emphasis would be placed on creating two types of clandestine officers: those who want to go on to management and those who want to remain as operators overseas. In that sense it would be more like the British MI6, which is much smaller than CIA's Directorate of Operations."
