Mollie Halpern: The number one priority of the FBI is to protect and defend the United States from terrorist attacks. To accomplish this mission, the Bureau has increased its intelligence capacity and adopted a threat-based, intelligence-driven approach.
Tracy Reinhold: It’s not something we haven’t done before, it’s just a refinement of the way that we do business so that we are better postured to address the threats that we face today and into the future.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau and you’re listening to “FBI This Week.” After the 9/11 attacks, the FBI blended intelligence into its traditional law enforcement mission. Tracy Reinhold, the assistant director of the Directorate of Intelligence….
Reinhold: It’s about getting ahead of where the bad guy is, and you do that through the collection and analysis of intelligence.
Halpern: The FBI has evolved into a national security organization and is a full member of the U.S. intelligence community. Throughout its transformation, the Bureau remains steadfast in protecting the civil liberties of Americans. I’m Mollie Halpern and this is what’s happening at the “FBI, This Week.”
