Foreign Denial and Deception Committee
The Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC), a member of the National Intelligence Council (NIC), formerly fell under the purview of the Director of Central Intelligence and now falls under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, a position created by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.
The DCI Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC) "published a landmark study of damage caused by unauthorized disclosures of classified intelligence, in support of the Attorney General's report to Congress (per Section 310 of the FY2002 Intelligence Authorization Act). Per DCI direction, FDDC began an Intelligence Community-wide initiative to provide denial and deception (D&D) briefings to Senior Intelligence Service-level managers. FDDC also launched a major training initiative in partnership with the Joint Military Intelligence College for senior IC analysts to better counter foreign D&D." --DCI Annual Report 2002.
