The Director of Central Intelligence
Washington, D.C. 20505
I am pleased to submit this year’s unclassified “Annual Report for the United States Intelligence Community” pursuant to the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997.
The Intelligence Community has had a successful year working collaboratively to provide a decisive information advantage to the President, the military, diplomats, the law enforcement community and the Congress. The Intelligence Community has spent much of this past year preparing for the future. In March 1999, the first DCI Strategic Intent was published setting forth goals/objectives for the Intelligence Community to meet the new and complex threats to our national security and establishing a comprehensive strategic planning process. We are taking seriously our commitment to prepare for future challenges in a corporate way.
I am proud of the contributions the men and women of the Intelligence Community have made in protecting our national security and appreciate the opportunity to share their contributions with Congress and the public.
George J. Tenet
