White House Fort Hood Review: Better Info Sharing Needed
John Brennan, the White House counterterrorism adviser, has completed his review of the November shootings at Fort Hood. The White House has just released a public version of his findings, all of which are about improving information sharing across the government — a stark contrast with Brennan’s Flight 253 review, which found that information sharing between the intelligence agencies was robust.
“Communication protocols between DOD and the Department of Justice regarding disaffected individuals, in particular, need to be improved, and the policies governing information sharing and cooperation between the two departments on investigative matters require additional clarification and re-calibration,” the review states.
The full declassified summary of the review is after the jump.
