The domestic Communist threat to law and order in Japan and its foreign origins were a key concern for Murai (1952) and other intelligence officials and would feature in plans to establish a JCIA.
Despite US cooperation, the Japanese government was unable to establish a JCIA in the 1950s.

Together, the removal from power of these three advocates of a more robust intelligence system contributed to the failure of the JCIA plan.
At the same time, an additional obstacle to the JCIA proposal emerged from within the Diet and mass media.
