Federal intelligence workforce must shed jobs, experts say…

Federal intelligence agencies must make targeted staff reductions and boost employee performance in response to declining budgets, according to a report released Tuesday.

In the report from the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, a task force of current and former members of the intelligence community, recommended significant but strategic cuts to the workforce and programs over the next five years. Staffing levels increased in the last decade and are unsustainable in the current fiscal environment, according to the report.

    Obviously not a big fan of this sort of talk, but there is great precedent of dramatic drawdowns of the IC or intel professionals after crises and wars. Of course, that is usually followed by analysis of what a huge mistake that drawdown was. 🙂

    Personally, I think if we continue the cycle of ramping things up for crises, and then cutting back at the first sign of any let up, people will stop answering the call.
