A. Combined the CIA and the NSA. B. Made the National Security Council a cabinet department equal with the State and Defense. C. Created an independent office of Director of Intelligence, a job previously performed by the director of the CIA. D. Removed the counter-intellicence function from the FBI and gave it to the CIA.
Created an independent office of director of intelligence, a job previously performed by the director of the cia.-a separate director of intelligence was created to coordinate the 15 agencies in the intelligence community. prior to this time, the director of the cia was also the director of intelligence. however, it was argued that it was difficult to be director of one agency in the intelligence community while also coordinating all agencies, because in doing the latter role, the individual had little power. in establishing the new office, there was conflict over whether to give the new director personnel and budget authority. the final bill establishes limited budget authority.
