Report of the Select Committee on Intelligence, United States Senate, Covering the Period January 3, 2009 to January 4, 2011
Dianne Feinstein (ed); Saxby Chambliss (ed)
The activities of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence during the 111th Congress were shaped by a range of legislative, nomination, and oversight responsibilities. As described in part II of this report, the Committeeńˇ╗s top legislative priority in the 111th Congress was enactment of an Intelligence Authorization Act after a lapse, since the end of FY 2005, in the enactment of annual intelligence legislation. During the 111th Congress, the Committee received 14 nominations for leadership positions in the Intelligence Community (IC). In keeping with its record of expeditious consideration of nominations, coupled with its commitment to the establishment of a public record on the background and views of nominees, the Committee requested that nominees answer extensive questions, posted on its website the unclassified answers to those questions, held 19 hearings and business meetings, and recommended that the Senate give its advice and consent to 12 nominations. (One nominee withdrew his nomination and one nomination, initially made in Dec. 2010, was considered early in the 112th Congress.) As in the past, the Committeeńˇ╗s oversight work may have been the most important and least visible of its activities. This is a print on demand report.
