#4 (Picture)
Everybody was kung fu fighting,
And it was fast as lightning,
In fact a little bit frightening,
But they did it with expert timing.

#5 300 different agencies trying to manage the same piece of pie.

OF COURSE THERE ARE GONNA BE TURF BATTLES!!!!

Roll the same types into one agency and the problem will be reduced. For out-of-nation, all get rolled into the NSA. ATF, HS get rolled into the FBI. They share info. If the terrorist comes into the US, the NSA can share all data with the FBI and vice versa.

#6 They should use the private enterprise model. Create two groups, a blue and a gold group for each function. The one that is most successful gets the funding. Force them to compete. If you do not succeed, you do not get funding and you fade away or have your resources diverted to the more successful group.

#7 I believe this will be a routine 'pop-up' issue as long as DoD is successful in resisting politicized outside agencies from taking over their primacy in tactical intel [directly accessible and required by local combat commanders]. There was a go around on this a couple years back and the 'Intel Czar' lost to DoD. Centralization comes at a cost of tactical efficiency. It won't happen till actual war fighting is a distant memory [which is about 3 months in MSM time].
