This chapter focuses on the Aspin-Brown Commission's work following Harold Brown's appointment as chairman to replace Les Aspin. The chapter first considers the commission's session with Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, who served as director of naval intelligence, vice director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, director of the National Security Agency (NSA), and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). It then looks at Inman's views on a range of intelligence-related issues, such as human intelligence, the director of central (or national) intelligence, the CIA's paramilitary capabilities, and high-frequency NSA coverage. It also discusses CIA director John Mark Deutch's testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, along with the commission's meeting with a visiting delegation of British parliamentarians from the House of Commons. The chapter concludes by reflecting on Clinton's appointment of Brown and the latter's management style compared to Aspin.
