Intro to Int/SMARTWRITERAnswers 1Homework Assignment







You are an intelligence analyst for the Department of Homeland Security assigned to the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (DHS-OIA). Your unit has received a threat that the terrorist group, AKA, might be targeting the U.S. homeland. The threat contains the names of 3 individuals who might be part of the plot. 




The OIA has monitored this group’s activities in the US for the last 10 years, but before the current threat, there has been no information that the group would target the United States because its conflict was localized in Country X. However, the group does have a small infrastructure in the United States that has been used to raise funds among the immigrant population from Country X. The OIA must validate the threat and initiate a strategic assessment to understand the threat of AKA and identify intelligence gaps.




For this assignment, you must write a research paper of 800–1,000 words discussing each step of the intelligence cycle, specifically detailing how DHS-OIA will utilize the intelligence cycle to validate this threat and initiate a strategic assessment.
