Mission Accomplished? Has the Intelligence Community Connected All the Dots?

By some estimates, we have spent more than a trillion dollars since 9/11 to improve our ability to collect, synthesize, and analyze the massive amount of intelligence at our fingertips. But, as the Boston marathon bombing illustrates, all these many years later, there are still dots to connect. Two former Directors of National Intelligence, an office created to see to it that the “dots” all across the intelligence community are connected, will discuss its successes to date and the challenges that remain.
