The Director of National Intelligence

Bill Lahneman.

This module offers a comprehensive understanding of the role played by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the reasons for the new position’s creation, and the objections that derived from members of United State government as a result. The DNI’s considerable authority includes the establishment of objectives and priorities in the intelligence community, and the coordination of relationships with the intelligence and security services of foreign governments and international organizations. The DNI also holds vast budgetary control over the IC, and requires presidential support in order to be successful. This module emphasizes the complexity of the intelligence community, and depicts the DNI as a necessary step toward improvement in national intelligence.
