Tucker: Make President’s Daily Brief Map-base and Interactive

Chris Tucker argues at the Huffington Post that the President’s Daily Brief, a small packet of well vetted information should be updated to an interactive product. In particular, the new Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper should insure an interactive map supports all the topics.

We are at an inflection point in how intelligence could and should be conveyed. We could abandon the outmoded and inadequate PDB framework for informing the President and his national security principals. We could embrace a new metaphor. Not a short paper brief—but, rather, an interactive digital mapping interface that is integrated into all of the datastores in the national security community. The President’s Map. And, we happen to have the right DNI, James R. Clapper, to make this happen.
