PPOL 735 - Intelligence & Public Policy
This module examines major intelligence activities and issues.  First, we will explore what intelligence is and why policy-makers need it.   We then cover the organization of the U.S. Intelligence Community – both before and after 9/11 – and examine the roles and responsibilities of the various intelligence entities that comprise the U.S. Intelligence Community.  We will address counterintelligence and covert action, and explore the ethical dilemmas inherent in all intelligence operations.  Finally, drawing on the full scope of topics already addressed, we examine the role of intelligence in a democratic society such as the United States.  Throughout the class, we will relate these issues to current world events.
