Summary:

The Secrecy News blog used FOIA to obtain a forty-page response given by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence a few months earlier. Among other things, the DNI acknowledged that a Bush Administration cybersecurity directive remained active and that securing Afghanistan would require an 818,000-member security force.
