Technical Intelligence and Human Intelligence: These two collection domains have always competed within the intelligence community. The US has excelled at the former, but done less well at the latter. Indeed, some critics of the community say the downgrading of US clandestine capabilities made it much more difficult to pick up the plotting of the attacks on 9/11. The truth is probably more complex than this, but the topic is worth a good look. Write a paper describing how the US historically has treated these two collection domains and the status of each prior to 9/11. Critically analyze this problem in the aftermath of 9/11-the role of the predator on the technical side and reports of recruitment on the HUMINT side. What solutions do you propose?
