The US intelligence enterprise is multifaceted, expensive, and much larger than it was during the Cold War.  Whether it is bigger, more costly, or more intrusive than it should be depends on judgments about what policymakers want it to do and political decisions about tradeoffs between safety/security and individual rights and liberties.  Former Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analysis and Chairman of the National Intelligence Council Tom Fingar will discuss roles, missions, and oversights of the US intelligence community and answer questions about recent revelations and allegations.
