Earlier this month, President Obama significantly expanded the role of the Defense Intelligence Agency. This enabled the agency to expand its agents from just a few hundred overseas today to eventually 1,600. The nature of these agents' work will also change. They will shift away from intelligence collection to more covert operations. Unfortunately, this is in response to the never-ending "War on Terror". Attacks on foreign countries will increase as a result but it will occur under the cover of darkness outside of the American publics' awareness. One would be hard-pressed to see a line between military and intelligence services of the DIA and CIA. The CIA is becoming more like a secret military unto itself.
