Overview Edit

In 1949, Louis Johnson, the new Secretary of Defense, with the assistance of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, united the efforts of the military services under a new Armed Forces Security Agency to perform the communications intelligence mission and created an Armed Forces Communications Intelligence Board (AFCIB) separate from U.S. Communications Intelligence Board (USCIB). The DCI and others pointed out the incompatibility of this action with the National Security Council Intelligence Directive (NSCID) adopted the previous year, but this odd dual committee arrangement lasted until 1952.
