Sweeping reforms (徹底的な改革）to the nation's intelligence system after the Sept. 11, 2001. attacks have done little to improve information-sharing or generate a "greater sense of urgency" among U.S. intelligence agencies, a Houce of Representatives report concluded Thursday.
The report by the House Select Intelligence Committee also gave National Intelligence Director John Negroponte a tepid （熱意のない）review after 15 months on the job, noting he "is trying to do a little of everything, which slows down improvements in key areas."
In their 41-page review of how the nation's 16 intelligence agencies have adjusted since Congress overhauled（分解点検・修理する） the system in December 2004, lawmakers found a "mixed story."
Some good, needed steps have been taken, while other reforms have lagged," the report found. "Some believe that the new structure is too cumbersome (やっかいな、扱いにくい、難しい） and bureaucratic; others believe that the director of national intelligence is not showing the leadership and degree of change for which they hoped."
Responding, Negroponte's office said it has "acted with urgency and focus" in retooling (改組する、再編集する） the intelligence community that was widely criticised in report after report for failures leading up to （～に発展する、～に続く）the 2001 attacks.
