Domestic Military Intelligence Is Back

Code Name of the Week: Cornerstone

Yesterday, Walter Pincus reported in The Washington Post about the
Defense Department's Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA),
certainly one of the more mysterious Pentagon agencies, and one that
is at the center of the Defense Department's expanded programs aimed
at gathering and analyzing intelligence within the United States.

Proposals, Pincus said,"would transform CIFA from an office that
coordinates Pentagon security efforts -- including protecting military
facilities from attack -- to one that also has authority to
investigate crimes within the United States such as treason, foreign
or terrorist sabotage or even economic espionage."
