DYNAMIC PAGE -- HIGHEST POSSIBLE CLASSIFICATION IS TOP SECRET // SI / TK // REL TO USA AUS CAN GBR NZL (U) Stand-up of the Terrorist Threat Integration Center (TTIC) FROM: Charlie Meals Signals Intelligence Deputy Director Run Date: 05/06/2003 (U//FOUO) Thursday, 1 May, marked the official stand-up of the Terrorist Threat Integration Center (TTIC), located at CIA Headquarters. The TTIC was established by direction of the President of the United States as the single U.S. government focal point for all terrorist threat information, foreign and domestic. (U//FOUO) Mr. John Brennan, the TTIC Director, envisions the TTIC as the hub for information on terrorism threats--a joint venture of member agencies bringing their authorities with them to the TTIC. The TTIC staff is responsible for assessing, integrating, and expeditiously disseminating available threat information and analysis; maintaining an all-source database on known and suspected terrorists; and identifying collection requirements related to the terrorist threat. They will ensure terrorist threat information is quickly turned around and delivered through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to local and state officials and others as needed. (U//FOUO) Mr. Bill Gaches has been assigned from NSA as the TTIC Deputy Director, Threat Monitoring, Integration & Analysis. is the Senior NSA Representative to the TTIC. She will: coordinate NSA-TTIC activities; share information with NSA analysts at CIA, FBI, DHS, and other agencies as needed; and provide support and "reach back" to NSA to facilitate all-source threat analysis from both the Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and the Information Assurance (IA) Directorates. (U//FOUO) NSA's association with the TTIC is a groundbreaking opportunity for the Agency to support national decision-makers in the Counterterrorism and Homeland Security Community. I attended Thursday's ribbon cutting ceremony on behalf of the Director, and I believe the TTIC and DHS will complement each other in a way that will ensure the right people get the information they need to protect the nation. Please join MG Quirk and me in fully supporting this new, but vital, organization and in providing all possible assistance to the NSAers at TTIC.
