Pat Roberts,

Republican senator from Kansas, introduced a bill in August that called for the dismantling of the CIA and the creation of three new spy agencies—the National Clandestine Service, Office of National Assessments, and Office of Technical Support—and the office of national intelligence director, which will have budgetary control over entire intelligence budget. Roberts, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said, “If you believe that the intelligence community is doing just fine, thank you, then obviously this is not your bill.”
