INTL Assignment #2


 For this assignment, instead of looking at an intelligence problem, you will
look at an intelligence failure. To get started, check out the Foreign
Policy article linked below. The article highlights 10 of the biggest
intelligence failures in US history. You are to select one of those failures
as the subject of your paper. You may choose a failure not on the list, but
if you do, you must get your topic approved by me. Please note, that your
topic does not have to focus on US intelligence, it can look at the failure
of another country's intelligence agencies. Also note, that this is not
intended to be a critique of any presidential administration past or
present. Instead this is an analysis of the analytical pitfalls that led to
the intelligence failure. This paper should include the following elements:

Title page
Introduction with strong thesis statement
Background and analysis of the intelligence failure
Assessment of which analytical techniques learned in this class could have
prevented the failure (you may discuss more than one)
Friedman, Uri. (2012). "The Ten Biggest American Intelligence Failures."
Foreign Policy, (Jan 3).
