The Nation

January 13, 1986

Former CIA Director Stansfield Turner recommended that the intelligence organizations in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps be disbanded and their activities centered in the Defense Intelligence Agency. Turner said the DIA was created in 1964 by Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara to provide intelligence to the Joint Chiefs of Staff that was free of bias from the various services. But, Turner wrote in the Washington Post, the DIA has failed to attract the best people in the armed forces.
