CIFA Later
Posted by Adam Blickstein

After months of speculation, the Pentagon yesterday announced the dismantling of CIFA, the Department of Defense's controversial Counterintelligence Field Activity unit:

The Pentagon on Monday officially dissolved an intelligence office that once created a controversial database about potential threats to military bases, shifting it to the Defense Intelligence Agency.

The Pentagon's six-year old Counterintelligence Field Activity's personnel, budget, and most of its mission has been folded into the newly created Defense Counterintelligence and Human Intelligence Center.

The dissolving of the Rumsfeld-era intelligence operation doesn't diminish the controversy it helped create (such as retaining information on Quakers), but the decompartmentalization of intel at Defense is another sign that the Gates-era Pentagon is far more attuned to balancing security and concerns over civil liberties than his tin-eared predecessor was.
