The President of the United States
The White House
Washington, D.C.

Dear Mr. President:

In accordance with section 904 of the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1995 (P.L. 103-359), we hereby transmit the final report of the Commission on the Roles and Capabilities of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

The mandate of the Commission was to review the efficacy and appropriateness of the activities of the United States Intelligence Community in the post-Cold War global environment and to make such recommendations as the Commission considered advisable.

The Commission's report, in fact, contains a number of recommendations for action by the Executive and Legislative branches. Separately enclosed are draft documents to implement these recommendations. Adoption of these proposals would, in the view of the Commission, produce a more effective, more efficient, and more responsive Intelligence Community to serve the nation's interests.

For each of us appointed to the Commission, it has been an honor and privilege to have served.

Respectfully,
