    Well, the FBI is kind of in charge of domestic intelligence. But maybe it is not political enough yet :-/

    I think the idea is to create an MI6 style agency - right now those duties are split between several other organizations (by statute the CIA CANNOT operate inside US Territory).

    Not a bad idea, we have missed big things because of the gaps (9/11 hijackers training to fly airliners for one).

    The question is, if it is now federalized will she now get paid for it?
