How to make friends with spies

The amount of intelligence sharing between the U.S. and Britain is so extensive that at times it even exceeds the intelligence sharing practices within the U.S. government. Hayden noted that agencies like the NSA and National Geospatial Agency (NGA) don't have efficient communication and sharing practices, to the point that the former NGA Director and current Director of National Intelligence once asked him to share more intelligence between the NGA and the NSA. All that the NGA was asking, Clapper told Hayden, was to be treated like the British.
