As part of a plan to further ramp up its spying operations worldwide, the Pentagon today announced the creation of another spying unit named the Defense Clandestine Service (DCS).
With the military’s other spying units focusing on spying in places where the military is actually involved, the DCS focus will be on spying in nations that the US isn’t currently attacking or occupying.
This seemingly puts it in direct competition with the CIA, but officials say that the goal will be for the DCS to work closely with the CIA, particularly in places like Iran where the US military doesn’t have an official presence.
Officials say that the DCS creation is part of a major overhaul of all military spying, but declined to offer any specifics on what exactly is being overhauled, insisting that was a secret.

Why not have yet another agency as congress is once again MIA while doing their usual CYA
Wait a minute, isn't this the same bullsh*t Spuggy Feith was pulling back in the Bushco days? What was that called? Defense Intelligence Agency? Hmmm, that seems about right. Or in the very least, close enough.
People wonder why Petraeus got himself 'embedded' at CIA.
Since they (USG) eviscerated the Posse Comitatus Act, I would not be surprised to find out somewhere down the road that the intention all along was to sic this new spy outfit on the unsuspecting general population of the US.
Perhaps as I continue to age, unabated unfortunately, I seem to be getting the feeling that things are moving much faster than before…perhaps it is just a coincidence – an aspect of aging – or not. Perhaps in reality, the Archons are speeding up the process of the subjugation of "freedom" as we know it – or believed we were guaranteed.
The CIA is running a private Army and the DoD is jealous.
The Defense Intelligence Agency was been around for years. It was re-purposed as the Defense Information Systems Agency
One spy agency only with no freedom nor justice for all, and hopefully not "Under God" Jesus would "shit a brick".
Does nobody in the Pentagon have any sense for how this plays outside its walls? Did they make any effort to assuage anxiety, to acknowledge that this sounds pretty ominous to anyone who's read any history, Orwell or social psychology? It's maddening, not only that they do it, but that they do it as if it were something no one will have any problem with.
@Benjacomin Bozart: That is not an accurate statement. DISA is the old Defense Communications Agency (DCA). The DCA was formed in 1960 and renamed DISA in 1991.
Just what we needed.
One quibble, Jason. The way this reads, you seem to be suggesting that Iran is not currently under attack by the U.S. If sanctions (including interference with Iran's access to non-U.S. international financial markets), the murder of Iranian scientists within Iran (albeit perhaps by Mossad proxy), the unleashing of computer viruses or worms or whatever (seemingly in collaboration with Mossad), and the training and logistical support of MeK terrorists ain't an "attack" on Iran, then what is?
