In theory, policy makers prioritise threats (perceived or real) and allocate corresponding resources and particular intelligence methods and agencies to investigate. As such, an understanding of a country’s intelligence priorities must take into account the nature of it’s foreign policy and perceived threats ....   [tags: Intelligence]

True Intelligence - ... In disagreement with portions of this week’s article, as provided by (Macionis, 2010, pp. 266-267), People living prosperously are not necessarily smarter than those who are less fortunate. While it is true that wealthy people have better educational opportunities, as opposed to their counterparts, many gifted individuals have come from meager beginnings. Such examples clearly bring questions to widely asserted beliefs, which assume that prosperity is a definitive factor of intelligence. Insofar as cause and effect in these matters, if wealth were to be directly linked to intellect, affluence would be the cause and intelligence the effect; however, this scenario appears to be incorrect....   [tags: Intelligence]

Two Forms of Intelligence Collection - ... phone or internet traffic; electronic or non-communications (ELINT) - e.g. radar emissions; and, Foreign Instrumentation Signals (FISINT) - e.g. emissions associated with the launching of missiles or satellites.1 More generally, SIGINT involves the collection and analysis of electromagnetic transmissions associated with communications, radars, and weapons systems of intelligence targets.2 Not specifically covered in the above definitions (which historically refer only to the collection of information 'in motion') is the increasingly popular technique of computer network operations (CNO), which involves the deliberate acquisition of information that is 'at rest' - in layman's terms, hacking.3 Advantages of SIGINT SIGINT has a number of advantages over other forms of intelligence collection, including: credibility - SIGINT can provide access to information directly from the source, which is particularly important in weighing up the reliability of information upon which significant policy decisions may have to be made; safety - SIGINT allows for 'collection at a distance' and also lends itself more readily to plausible deniability, which is increasingly important for policy makers in a world of heightened sensitivity to policy blunders and, especially, allied casualties; and, timeliness - it is possible to gain almost instantaneous access to the communications of intelligence targets, which can be particularly useful for tactical operations such as capture or kill missions.4 (However, see also disadvantages associated with timeliness.) Disadvantages of SIGINT SIGINT has a number of disadvantages, including: the massive cost of collection (primarily stemming from the procurement and upkeep of highly sophisticated technologies, such as satellites and supercomputers);5 the enormous volume of raw data collected by the SIGINT apparatus makes discerning useful information very difficult;6 timeliness - related to the sometimes-complex methods of collection, such as the re-targeting of a satellite, or the time taken to sort the 'wheat from the chaff'; and, limited distribution - SIGINT intelligence products are almost invariably classified at the TOP SECRET level, which significantly limits the possibility of widespread dissemination and therefore utility....   [tags: Intelligence] 1222 words

The reason is that the quality and quantity of information available through open sources within Italy, is most likely enough to provide the details necessary for a proper analysis of meeting, and the situation would not warrant putting our clandestine operators (such as CIA Case Officers) in danger of blowing their cover....   [tags: Intelligence] 997 words

The Concept of Intelligence - The Concept of Intelligence ABSTRACT: Gilbert Ryle’s dispositional analysis of the concept of intelligence makes the error of assimilating intelligence to the category of dispositional or semi-dispositional concepts. Far from being a dispositional concept, intelligence is an episodic concept that refers neither to dispositions nor to ‘knowing how,’ but to a fashion or style of proceeding whose significance is adverbial. Being derivative from the function of the adverb ‘intelligently,’ the concept of intelligence does not have essential reference to specific verbs but rather to the manner or style of proceeding of nearly any verb that is descriptive of the proceedings of an agent....   [tags: Intelligence Ryle Essays] 3430 words
