    The country’s 16 intelligence agencies are getting a new technology program that will link their sensitive data “by Google-like search systems,” The Wall Street Journal reports. The move is aimed at aiding interagency communication, letting intelligence analysts search through secret files the same way they search the Internet to help them prevent another 9/11. The agencies’ email systems will also be united into a single system with a full directory, and The Journal reports the new program “is designed to include Facebook-like social-networking programs and classified news feeds.” The price for all this interaction is expected to run into the billions, but the impact “will be staggering,” according to Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell.
