PMCs Aff DDI ’10 SS – Julia Reinitz 2 1AC Contention One is Inherency Funding shortages and lack of DNI power are forcing use of private contractors for intelligence gathering HEATHER SOMERVILLE , staff writer @ UPI, UPI 7/21 ’10, “Intel hearing focuses on contractors” National security spending has risen to such levels that U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently called it a "gusher," but funding is guaranteed only one year at a time, which makes hiring full-time government employees difficult, Clapper said. There is a demand for more people to move more top-secret information but not enough long-term funding. " So the obvious outlet for that has been the growth of contractors ," Clapper said. The Post investigation, revealed in a front-page series that ran Monday-Wednesday, claims private contractors are hired for every conceivable job in intelligence and occupy almost 30 percent of the intelligence workforce and almost half the total personnel budget. Senate Committee on Intelligence chairwoman Dianne Feinstein , D-Calif., called for a 10 percent reduction in one year in private contractors for the director of national intelligence, although she acknowledged, "I don't know that that's quite achievable." The Senate committee issued a report last year that called for the reduction in contractors, based on a 2008 case study by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that found contractors were being used in jobs that could be successfully done by government employees for less money. Clapper he supported a reduction in private contractors for intelligence work but declined to set a specific goal. Clapper spent six years as a private contractor for government intelligence after he retired from the Air Force.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
