s you progress through the modules of the course, you are learning how the United States Intelligence Community operates as it pertains to the 5-Disciplines of Intelligence Collection. For this assignment, you will have an opportunity to deal with a real national intelligence collection issue, the Iranian nation’s ability to acquire or build a nuclear weapon, and their ability to successfully launch and detonate it against the United States or one of our allies.
You will assume the role of a DNI analyst and you will be tasked to conduct an open source analysis of the Iranian threat. Next, you will assemble an intelligence collection plan in which you appropriately task the members of the United States Intelligence Community. During the approximate 4-weeks that you will have to complete this assignment, the course instructor may decide to interject through class announcements “intelligence” updates. It will be your responsibility to decide whether or not these updates need to be addressed which may require that you also alter your collection plan/analysis.

Congratulations, you have been hired as the National Intelligence Collection Officer, Near East, within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). The ODNI’s core mission is to lead the United States Intelligence Community (IC) in intelligence integration and forging a community that delivers the most insightful intelligence possible. Intelligence integration means synchronizing collection, analysis, and counterintelligence so that they are fused, effectively operating as one team. You have been assigned to the National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC). The NCPC is one of four integration centers under the ODNI. The other three integrations centers are the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC), and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC).
During your on-board training, you learned that the National Counterproliferation Center was founded in 2005 based on recommendations from the Congressional Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Commission the same year and direction from the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. Its mission is to lead the Intelligence Community and interagency to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, their delivery systems, related technologies and expertise. The NCPC helps counter threats against the United States from the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons and missiles capable of delivering them. The NCPC integrates the counterproliferation efforts of the entire Intelligence Community to ensure that the US Government is postured to protect the country from Weapons of Mass Destruction. The NCPC is a small, diverse group of Officers drawn from across the IC and devoted to integrating the IC’s efforts. You further learn that the NCPC promotes innovative solutions to counter proliferation and posture the US Government and its partners to anticipate emerging threats and challenges.
You further learn that the NCPC works with the Intelligence Community (IC) to identify critical holes in our WMD knowledge – resulting from shortfalls in collection, analysis, or exploitation – and then develops solutions to reduce or close these gaps. In conjunction with the policy community, NCPC also helps to identify long-term proliferation threats and requirements, and develops strategies to ensure that the IC is positioned to address these over-the-horizon threats. The NCPC drives whole-of-government actions to implement US policy objectives. To do this, NCPC depends not only on the 16 agencies of the IC, but also partners with experts across the US Government and in the private sector.
The NCPC advances the broader objectives of the US counterproliferation mission by the following:
Discourage interest by states, terrorists or armed groups in acquiring, developing or mobilizing resources for WMD purposes
Prevent or obstruct state, terrorist or other efforts to acquire WMD capabilities, or efforts by suppliers to provide such capabilities
Roll back or eliminate WMD programs of concern
Deter weapons use by those possessing nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and their means of delivery
Mitigate the consequences of any use of WMD against the United States or its allies.
How the NCPC accomplishes the above is as follows:
Conceptualize and implement strategies to provide top-level direction and priorities to focus the IC’s counterproliferation efforts
Sponsor campaigns to accelerate progress against our most intractable WMD challenges
Promote (and often kick-start) high-risk/high-payoff initiatives that benefit the entire community
Ensure vital programs/infrastructure are appropriately maintained and resourced
Identify/overcome any obstacles hindering collaboration among IC Counter Proliferation elements
During a recent briefing, the Deputy DNI for Intelligence Integration advised that the President informed his cabinet that he feared that the Government of Iran would join North Korea as a rouge nation with nuclear weaponry capability. He wanted to ensure that the IC was doing everything possible to prevent and counter the spread of WMDs, and that the United States Government was prepared to respond to any scenario involving the possibility of Iran possessing nuclear weapons. The Director is meeting with the members of the IC and White House staff to update the IC requirements for our national security. In anticipation of this, the Deputy DNI has instructed you to prepare a draft collection plan that encompasses the entire IC and concentrates on the mission and asset management of the second (Determine Resource Availability and Capability) and third (Task Resources) stages of the collection plan. He also asked that you perform a preliminary OSINT collection prior to tasking the IC along the 5 Disciplines of Intelligence Collection. The Deputy DNI asked that you be specific in assessing the capabilities and tasking of the IC as it pertains to the Iranian capabilities. He further advised that although the Department of Defense oversees multiple IC organizations, such as the Defence Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the National Reconnaissance Organization, and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, you must task the specific agency.

You are an intelligence analyst for the Department of Homeland Security assigned

You are an intelligence analyst for the Department of Homeland Security assigned to the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (DHS-OIA). You are currently working in the Special Events Unit and are responsible for producing an intelligence assessment outlining potential threats to the upcoming United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting that is to take place in New York City 2 months from now. As a result of the collection plan you recently developed, you have just received the following source reporting from a HUMINT source. This source has reported information in the past and is deemed reliable. The source had direct access to the reported information by virtue of his normal daily activities: Source recently met with an individual by the name of Adnan Last Name Unknown, an Albanian national and suspected member of AKA, residing in New Jersey. According to Source, Adnan explained a scheme by which he traffics MDMA (ecstasy) tablets acquired in Elbasan, Albania into the United States. Adnan traveled to Elbasan, Albania four times last year. Adnan has been able to acquire ecstasy tablets at a wholesale price of $1 per tablet. Adnan purchased $10,000 worth of ecstasy tablets per trip. Adnan then purchased 25 bags of coffee beans packaged in foil wrappers. The coffee bean packages were opened, and the ecstasy tablets were comingled, 400 tablets per bag, with the coffee beans, and the foil wrappers are then resealed. The coffee bags are placed in his luggage. Adnan stated that he has had no problem smuggling the ecstasy into the United States using this method, and he stated that his associates, also Albanian nationals, have successfully smuggled ecstasy tablets into the United States for Adnan using this same method approximately three to four times per year. Adnan has a connection in New York, NY who buys the ecstasy tablets for $5 per tablet. Source reported that several AKA members in the New York area were planning to conduct an operation during an upcoming major event that is scheduled to take place sometime in the next couple of months. Source was not clear what event they were referring to but stated that it was something “the whole world” would be watching. Source stated that the operation would include the use of suicide bombers disguised as guests of the event. Source also stated that other AKA operatives would be positioned near the venue to set off some sort of chemical device within the subway system for those trying to evacuate the scene. Source stated that an identified U.S. citizen named Randolph King recently established a group he referred to as AKA-NY as a local branch of the terrorist group AKA. King has been in contact with alleged AKA member Alek Alothman, who lives in New Jersey, and other unidentified AKA affiliates throughout the United States, including AKA commander Zameer Rayani. King hopes to obtain the names and contact information of other group members. King plans on promoting his new group through a Web site and hopes to also sell T-shirts and hats with the group’s logo on them to raise money. Source stated that AKA has become more aggressive in its campaign against the government of Albania. AKA has gone beyond its efforts of attacking government assets within Albanian borders, and it is looking to target the Albanian government on a larger scale. According to the source, AKA is looking to embarrass the Albanian government and to make it look weak in front of the world. Source stated that AKA members from Albania are being sponsored by a New York–based company called Al-Akzam World for those individuals to obtain H1-B visas to enter the United States. Once the AKA members receive sponsorship, they can apply for the H1-B visa, which will allow them to enter the United States for a period of up to 1 year. Although they are supposed to be coming to work for this company, most of the members do not. According to the source, these members only use the company to get into the United States and then go their separate ways. In fact, most overstay the terms of their visa and never leave. Discuss the HUMINT source reporting with your group, and identify the key pieces of raw intelligence from the scenario above that may potentially satisfy the intelligence requirements listed below: What individuals or groups are planning terrorist acts directed at the UNGA meeting in New York? What individuals, groups, or delegations attending the UNGA meeting in New York are being targeted by domestic or international terrorists? What groups or individuals associated with criminal or terrorist activities are active in the New York area of operations? Which foreign intelligence service will attempt to use the UNGA meeting in New York as an intelligence collection opportunity? Which delegations attending the UNGA meeting in New York are being targeted by foreign intelligence services?

Background: When we attempt to define terrorism, it can be a very difficult tas

Background:
When we attempt to define terrorism, it can be a very difficult task depending on a person’s viewpoint or position in a given society. The meaning of terrorism changes within social and historical contexts. The term terrorism is a social construct–groups construct a frame work around a concept, providing a definition through the meanings they attribute to the construct. The social context surrounding the term terrorism influences how it is defined – the historical, political, and criminological circumstances at a given point in time affect the way in which terrorism is defined. The definition can even become more complex in war zones when the media and politicians combine elements of al Qaeda and Taliban into one organization.
While there is no international standard definition for terrorism; however, the consensus definition involves that someone is terrorized and meaning of the term is derived from the terrorists’ targets and victims. Terrorism is a pejorative term, meaning that the term is laden with derogatory meanings and misunderstood. If we look at U.S. State Department view of Hezbollah, the State Department has designated Hezbollah as a terrorist group whereas Jordan views Hezbollah as a legitimate militia.
Early history of terrorism shows that terrorism was used to maintain power or to overthrow those in power. Sicarii Zealots, a Jewish group, is an example of an early terrorist organization that was active during the Roman occupation of Middle East in the first century. Their name came from the short dagger which they used to commit their murders, mostly against other Jews who were deemed traitors. The assassins were named Sicari (dagger men) by Romans.
The modern understanding of terrorism originated from the French Revolution from 1789-1799. The term used to describe the repressive actions of the French government against the masses. The meaning of terrorism soon transformed to refer to guerilla tactics in the Napoleonic wars. In guerrilla war, guerrillas use terrorist tactics against their enemies, and may terrorize enemies and their supporters into submission.
This provides us with a baseline of the understanding of terrorism and historical context from which it came. It is an evolving concept which probably continue to change in the future dependent of political and social perception.
Question:
With the support of at least one of the links below, as you examine the terrorism paradigm there are both domestic, international, and transnational elements, seeking to do harm to the United States and its citizenry. Identify which terroristic element who believe to be the most dangerous to the United States and why? There are no wrong answers per se and consider this an opportunity to use critical thinking to address a very important homeland security issue.
