Counterintelligence: The Sword and Shield in Counterterrorism Michael Jay Smith American Military University INTL 498 Senior Seminar Dr. Lamont Colucci Misunderstood Capabilities “All Warfare is based upon deception”- Sun Tzu In most instances, Counterintelligence operations are often misunderstood in the capabilities they provide to counter-terror operations. Counterintelligence operations offer many options in order to ensure that intelligence collection is attainable in instances of terrorism both domestically and internationally. These collections are available from electronic and physical surveillance to the use of covert actions.
On April 9, 1865, The Civil War finally came to an end. After four long years of bloody war and dead bodies, the horror stopped. So who’s the one who ended it? You might know him as Ulysses S. Grant! Let’s get to know him.
The origin of Operation Security had come from the Rolling Thunder and Arc Light missions in the Vietnam War. (NSA 1993, 7) Reason for the OPSEC initiative to take hold, was the Vietnamese were receiving intelligence from the Chinese, which the Missions were subsequently linked to being ineffective due to the messages that were intercepted by the Chinese intelligence collection. (NSA 1993, 7) When the lapses were discovered were in the transmissions themselves, with communication security being lapsed on certain communications. (NSA 1993, 15) In order to determine these lapses, a team was put into operation in order to determine where and how the enemy had gained knowledge for attacks and where they were gathering this intelligence.
MILITARY : What is the military? In straightforward terms, the U.S. Military are comprised of the five armed service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. There are three general classes of military individuals: active duty (full-time officers and mariners), reserve and guard forces (generally work a regular citizen work, yet can be called to full-time military obligation), and veterans and retirees (past individuals from the military). What's more obviously there are a large number of relatives and companions of military individuals, past and present.
Espionage as a literary theme is interdisciplinary in nature, as psychoanalysis, philosophy, and political theory converge to categorize this subject and identify his new home in the literary medium. Joseph Conrad's Secret Agent demonstrates how terror, allegory and irony as literary tropes come to be the place the spy inhabits. Terrorism has engendered political, ethical, and scientific controversy over its use. The proliferation of recent films, television programs, and books is a socio-cultural indicator of widespread interest. Designed for a diverse audience including law enforcement officers, intelligence and security officers, attorneys, and researchers Foundations of Psychological Profiling.
When most people hear the name George Washington they automatically think first President of the United States. However, though he was the first president he was also so much more. George Washington is by far the most important figure in the history of the United States. Against all military odds, he liberated the thirteen colonies from the superior forces of the British Empire and presided over the process to produce and ratify a Constitution that has lasted for more than two hundred years. In two terms as President, he set that Constitution to work with such success that, by the time he finally retired, America was well on its way to becoming the most powerful and richest nation on earth.
2.1.1. Description of the SOF Clear definitions are needed to be able to understand how distinct military special operations are from other organizations conducting the same. Various government agencies at the national, state, and local levels conduct “special operations” that include numerous and disparate activities and sometimes require dedicated special operators, such as teams in law enforcement. Other nations also have similar activities and label them as special operations.
Above all, surveillance should not be taken without the knowledge of a citizen. Robert Mankoff, cartoon editor of The New Yorker, reports that the government has access to see everything citizens are doing, but they claim they do not have this privilege (Cartoon Surveillance). There is no need for the government to see the domestic actions of citizens, especially without their knowledge. ACLU claims people with no suspicion are under surveillance while they are doing nothing wrong. Citizens do not know they are being watched because there is no probable cause for them to be watched (NSA’s Surveillance).
For the Army, sustainment is the provision of logistics, personnel services, and health service support necessary to maintain operations until successful mission completion (ADP 4-0). Operation Iraqi Freedom was a major combat operation that required extensive logistical support. My example of sustainment will be based on the 3rd Infantry Division logistical lines of support during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The supply levels for the 3rd Infantry Division was to start off with five days of food supply and water during the invasion. The exception was for the support battalions, they would maintain a 2 day supply.
