Officials: US to continue authorized intelligence disclosures

DefenseScoop reports that the U.S. is likely to maintain authorized strategic intelligence disclosures it first leveraged during the Russia-Ukraine war as it looks to bolster intelligence efforts amid increasing tensions with China.

Declassification of U.S. intelligence on the war has helped the U.S. establish a coalition, while assisting a partner and impacting Russia, said National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command Head Gen. Paul Nakasone at a House Armed Services Subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations hearing.

However, such intelligence disclosures would only be effective with extensive dialogue within the community, added Nakasone.

Meanwhile, both Defense Undersecretary for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier emphasized the importance of intelligence sharing with U.S. allies.

"On the partnership piece, we all have deep professional and personal partnerships with our counterparts and other nations. Those personal relationships go very, very far when you can pick up a secure line and have a conversation with your partner about something bad that's about to happen. That is key, it's clutch and it's clutch today," Berrier said to the subcommittee.
