IN FACT, THE PENTAGON'S ROLE in clandestine operations has been growing by leaps and bounds since Reagan and Bush first took their oaths. As the Soviet threat recedes, Grenada, Panama, and the gulf war conveniently demonstrate that there will always be an enemy.

Congress finally produced a bill that Bush did sign. Among it's mildly reformist components: (1) the president must issue written findings on covert actions by any* governmental entity, not just the CIA, and (2) that Congress be notified when third parties are used for covert action. But for every proposed restriction, there's a giveaway. The new law incredibly *expands the president's power to launch covert actions. No longer does the president have to claim that national security was threatened; a simple assertion that the covert action furthers "identifiable foreign policy objectives of the United States" is sufficient. Things are so bad that reformers reportedly had to struggle mightily just to get the word "identifiable" into the bill. And it codifies covert action just as Specter wanted.

"Now, everybody has clandestine services, everybody has covert operations." Already, 80 per cent of the intelligence black budget is controlled by the Pentagon, and is dispensed to a raft of different organizations most Americans have never heard of. The largest, with a budget of $12 billion to $15 billion, is the Air Force's National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which collects satellite data. (The government denies its very existence.) Others include The National Security Agency (NSA), which monitors international phone calls, and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), which analyzes military information.

Some believe a battle royal is coming, as Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, who served on the House Intelligence Committee before joining the Bush administration, tries to reorganize military intelligence. He reportedly wants each branch of the military to have its own intelligence structure, with all reporting to an enhanced DIA, which would rival the CIA. Cheney takes a great personal interest in military covert operations: the Special Operations Command is believed to report directly to him, rather than going through the Joint Chiefs according to military intelligence specialists.
