INT 575 Intelligence Policy and Reform

This course examines and surveys United States intelligence policy and reform efforts, including the most recent intelligence reform proposals. In a world that has become increasingly aware of potential terrorist threats, the United States’ activities and policies in the Intelligence Community (IC) have become considerably more open to the public and presumably have undergone major changes.

The course learning outcomes that you will demonstrate upon completion of this course are as follows:

Describe publicly available indicators that show that mission concepts, perspectives and attitudes at the FBI and other agencies either have or have not changed as a result of the events of September 11, 2001.

Identify some of the specific weaknesses in the Intelligence Community that were highlighted by the events of 9/11.

Describe actions taken to correct weaknesses identified. 

Describe the changes in attitudes regarding the missions of IC elements that were recognized to be needed and discuss the current attitudes: are they different? Better?

Evaluate the success of at least three major changes that have been implemented.
