Select one (1) of the below listed seven (7) items, and research and write an argumentative essay that your selection above all of the others listed has had the most influence in all three of these:
The capabilities and composition of the U.S. Intelligence Community today;
The ICs relationship with the executive branch, since the end of World War 1
The state of Congressional oversight of American intelligence today.
Provide only enough background or historical information related to the event, as is necessary; this is not a history paper. I am most interested in the arguments that you see linking the event you select, to the three specific topics listed above and the ideas and concepts from these first four weeks.
1. Newly appointed US Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson stating in 1929, Gentlemen do not read each other s mail.
2; The status of American intelligence capabilities in support of President Roosevelt, on December 7, 1941
3. Operation Ajax, in 1953
4. Egypts Invasion of Israel in 1973
5. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1980
6. The 1993 attack on the World Trade Towers
7. The passing of Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008.
Research will be required; these are not topics we have specifically addressed in these early lessons. I am asking you to apply concepts from lessons 1-4, to new topics, in order to better assess your understanding of them.
If you have questions regarding quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing, please ask. The ASU Code of Student Conduct has additional guidance on this topic as well.
