Aspin-Brown Commission


Aspin-Brown Commission

The Aspin-Brown Commission, more properly known as the Commission on the Roles and Capabilities of the US Intelligence Community, was commissioned by the American Congress after the National Security Act of 1992 failed to be passed. The Commission produced a report in 1996. In the year 2000, the democratic senator of Oklahoma, David Boren, wrote in the foreword to Robert D. Steele's book "On Intelligence: Spies and Secrecy in an Open World" that these reforms had not yet been implemented by any of the Directors of Central Intelligence who had an opportunity to do so.
