President Bush has signed a second Executive Order) directing government agencies to do a better job of sharing information. The new order, 13388, also calls for setting up an Information Sharing Council to provide oversight. However the order says nothing about over classification of information, which was at the heart of the provisions in last year’s intelligence bill that lead to the executive order. The order asks agencies to give information sharing their highest priority. (10/26/05)
