Intelligence, National Security, and War
March 25-27, 2013
The last decade has witnessed substantial changes to U.S. intelligence to include the creation of new institutions such as the National Counterterrorism Center, new organizations such as the Office of Director of National Intelligence, and new doctrine where intelligence drives military operations in combat zones such as Afghanistan. At the same U.S. intelligence has been remade, the United States has also prioritized efforts to share intelligence across state boundaries and develop the intelligence capabilities of other countries. To consider these issues, the EMC Chair at the Naval War College convened a workshop to address intelligence, national security, and war. Panels will examine successes, challenges, and failures of intelligence in five key areas—policymaking, counterinsurgency, security cooperation counterterrorism, and cyberspace operations. Additionally, keynote addresses will reflect on the many changes to intelligence and consider new directions for the intelligence community.
