Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • How does the US Government define “Intelligence related to National Security?”
  • What are two databases that the US Intelligence Community admit to having on people?
  • What is MASINT?
  • What are the steps of the intelligence cycle?

Description:

Intended for Members of Congress, this is an introduction the intelligence process and the US intelligence communities. Notable for having a profile of every US intelligence agency (we publicly admit to) starting on page 21 of the PDF file. Each profile has the agency title, logo, description, statutory components, and mini profiles of subordinate units.

A section of abbreviations and acronyms appears at page 84. This book would be helpful in deciding what spy agency to place your character in.
