According to an article in Washington Post, the Pentagon is creating an intelligence agency of its own that could rival the CIA in both size and scope. The agency is aiming to have at least 1600 employees in positions around the world, and they won't have to discuss their activity with the Congress. The Pentagon has also reached an agreement to use the CIA's bases and resources abroad.
Washington is reportedly planning to strengthen its international intelligence might by hiring over 16-hundred undercover agents. However the newly-minted spies will not report to the CIA but are instead supposed to become members of the DIA - the Pentagon's worldwide military intelligence unit.
